It's a nice hotel close to the water. Very nice and well maintained. The rooms are clean and there are fire pits to sit by in the front of the property. There is a place in the hotel to order beverages and snacks. An ocean view is unnecessary since there are a lot of places to sit in front of the property with an ocean view. I wouldn't waste my money on an ocean view.
Unfortunately, we were only able to stay at the Sandcastle for one night. It was an amazing hotel, with beautiful oceanfront views, and wonderful front desk staff! Taj greeted us upon arrival with a smile, answered all of our questions, made recommendations for breakfast the next morning, and took time to help us get set up on their complimentary bikes! The beds were so comfy and the rooms were a great size. The kids had smores on the deck while we enjoyed beverages in the evening. If you're in Pismo, stop at The Sandcastle!
The best hotel we stayed at. Very clean rooms, service is fantastic, location is fabulous, they even have an ac and beds are very comfortable. Views from the room are gorgeous. We loved our time at sandcastle.
We came over thanks giving. Was in a great location. Would stay again. Very nice staff. Nice check in. It’s only a small hotel so no gym. Food service rather limited at the deck and food mediocre. Ok but would not eat there unless for a snack. Parking seemed unfair at $20 per night when you consider it’s a small hotel with decent sized self parking lot. Very clean, room nice. Could have used a desk but none provided. Internet ok for free. Pricing reasonable, I would stay again.
Lovely hotel on the beach at Pismo! Great location. Room was clean and modern. Cool fire pits scattered around the hotel. If you can ask for an ocean facing room and view. Good parking. And walking distance to all the Pismo beach restaurants.
I expected more from the room given it's price point and location. Though the lobby and overall amenities were good, the rooms felt outdated and reminiscent of a 1 star motel. Ex: Carpet was old and musty, no microwave available, our room didn't have a heater, the hot water stopped working completely so we had to take ice cold showers in an already freezing room, food was expensive but options were basic, light fixtures were old and had those annoying timer switches that tick until shut off. Overall would not return given it's price point at almost $300 a night.
Fantastic location- no maid service unless you text or call 24 hours in advance! No communication about that from the hotel so that when we asked for our room to be cleaned, they said oh you must reserve ahead of time, as if we were supposed to know that magically! Our friends who stayed an extra day STILL didn’t get the maid service even after they made the reservation for the cleaning.
We took a weekend trip to Pismo Beach. We didn’t know what hotel to book and gambled on this one from a booking site. It far exceeded expectations. The hotel is nice and has a convenient bar and restaurant with excellent views. It’s walkable to everything.
I’m a couple hours north & have stayed here before but this trip was fantastic. Awesome hotel & thanks to Taj we were upgraded to an ocean front room. Taj deserves 5 stars all on his own. Room was great although the mattresses were a bit soft for my taste. The rooftop deck is gorgeous & what a view! Really love the propane fire pits on the main deck. Harry’s is a couple blocks away & we danced till 1 am. I love Pismo & will be back as I’ve done over the years. Always will stay at Sandcastle!
Right near the pier with amazing people, food, and rooms. The beds were so comfy and the views were just amazing! Loved hanging out at the Deck, and then we watched the sunset from the patio by the fire. Perfect stay!
