We booked Sandcastle Inn upon arriving in Pismo Beach. Initially we were only going to be staying for 1 night, but after a fabulously welcoming arrival, we decided to extend our stay to 2 nights. (if we were in the US for any longer, I'm sure we would have kept extending!) The location is perfect, the views are divine and...

The main picture on Facebook sold me on this place. It suggests something a lot more than what I saw or experienced. We got a noisy room that appeared disconnected to the main hotel and which faced right onto the street. The breakfast the next morning was boiled eggs, ham toast and porridge. There was a waffle machine but the...

We stayed at Sandcastle Inn on our drive along the Pacific Highway 1. We reached there late at night yet there was a lady at the reception who helped us. The Sandcastle Inn is located right on the beach. The rooms are comfortable and cosy with two queen sized beds. The room size was good for two occupants. The rooms...

Flawless one night stay. Friendly and helpful staff. Well located for restaurants and beach walks. Tasty breakfast served in a bright, sunny room. Great view of the beach and ocean made the $30 upgrade charge worth the money.

We totally loved our stay. We upgraded to a view/balcony room with two queens. So glad we did. It was so relaxing being able to see the ocean anytime we wanted. To just sit out there and have coffee. The room was lovely and spacious. There is a patio area on the roof that is beautiful. It has a fire...

I loved the stay here! We stayed in the king ocean view room and it was awesome! Great view and next to the pier. There is a nice terrace that also overlooks the ocean on the same floor. No pool, but has hot tub. The staff was helpful and nice. Clean hotel and room. Highly recommend!

Sandcastle Inn is a well kept, well appointed on the beach Inn. You can see, smell, hear the ocean from your room. The staff is helpful and caring. This is my third visit and it just keeps getting better. Picture taken from our room.

You can't beat an oceanfront room. It was a little small, but it was just me and my mom. I would like to see a microwave in the room, but the room we had was 30 steps to the eating area. Every morning I would go heat my coffee and yes I had to get dressed to do it. Not...
