We got this place randomly on Priceline for a low price. It's a two-star hotel and we are used to 3+ star hotels but none were available in Pismo so we decided to chance it. We were prepared for the worst but were pleasantly surprised.
The room was clean, AC worked fine, fireplace was cool, and the bed was comfortable. We ate dinner at the attached restaurant (AJ Spurs) and had a great time. The food is fantastic and the servers were fun. Plus hotel guests get a 10% discount coupon.
For negatives, there was a funky smell in the second floor elevator area, and the jacuzzi was not working. Both were minor inconveniences.
I give the hotel owners BIG credit for not tearing down a beautiful giant oak tree that's obviously been there for at least 100 years. They built a nice walkway around it on the path to the restaurant. I've attached a picture.
