We returned to the Valentina for yet another fabulous vacation. We love walking on the pier and strolling along the beach early in the morning and having the option of dining at home or at a near by restaurant. The Farmers Market was on Wednesday and we couldn't resist purchasing farm fresh vegetables for a lovely dinner made in the our incredible kitchen. The room was beautiful, comfortable, clean and artistically pleasing. The location was excellent as it was close to restaurants, the pier and the beach. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Not only would we return but I am in the process of organizing a staff retreat at this elegant vacation location.

We stayed at this property on the weekend of August 9th-11th. This was our first time staying in Pismo and I looked for an upscale property rather than just a motel (which Pismo beach is full of). Valentina Suites seemed to fit our needs somewhat and was also the only property that was close to the beach and rated highly on both TripAdvisor and Yelp. I booked the one bedroom suite through Booking.com.

From a luxury perspective, this place definitely delivers. Our unit was top notch. It looked like it was just built yesterday. The full kitchen was full of appliances that, as my wife found out - since we need to replace ours, are very expensive (the stove is around $3000 alone and the entire kitchen is about $6000 in appliances). The living room has an entire entertainment system with speakers built in the walls, iPod docking stations, DVD player, audio receiver, and more. Each unit has an alarm system, an oversize wall safe, and overall just feels very rich. The living room is big and has a sofa sleeper in it. Next to the kitchen is a small table and a couple of chairs. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dish ware, silverware, and just about every type of kitchen accessory that you may need. The bedroom has a queen size bed which takes up about 70% of the room. The bathroom is almost the size of the bedroom and features a full bath tub with both a showerhead, handheld wand, and a faucet. Overall, all of the hardware is very good quality and we did not have any issues with it. Our unit also had a washer and dryer, broom, and vacuum which made my wife very happy since the majority of the flooring is tile and my kids like to drag in sand and dirt.

We traveled with three kids and a baby. The hotel does not provide cribs or pack-n-plays so be prepared to bring one with you or have your child sleep with you. The hotel does not provide rollaway beds either and the unit is rated for accommodations for four. We brought a queen inflatable mattress with us. Even after opening the sofa sleeper in the living room, there was still room for the queen mattress to fit between the sofa sleeper and the entertainment center on the opposite wall. There was still room in the unit for another mattress if one is needed. The bed in the bedroom was comfortable (it is very firm - which is what we like) but the sofa sleeper mattress was not very thick or comfortable. My kids did not complain but I fell asleep on it one evening while watching a movie with my kids and it was not very comfortable. They definitely need to upgrade the sofa sleeper.

Service was overall excellent. The hotel does not really have a lobby and there is personnel onsite until about 8:00pm each day. We ended up coming in a little later and the staff stayed and made sure that we were checked in. After 8:00pm normally, you need to call an after hours number for service.

The hotel does not have a pool or a restaurant (it is really just the rooms) so unless you are going to eat in your own unit, you will need to leave the hotel. There are many places around the hotel all within walking distance but you still need to leave the hotel. My kids love pools and this hotel does not have one so they were a little disappointed but loved the Pismo Beach which is three blocks away from the hotel. The hotel has an entire bin full of sand toys, boogie boards, and other beach accessories that you can use while staying at the hotel. There is no signup or anything similar. Simply grab and use. There is both outdoor and indoor parking. The indoor parking is secured parking so you can leave gear in the car if you want to and not worry about it being stolen overnight.

Overall, we really enjoyed the hotel and would recommend it to anyone looking for upscale accommodation. I have looked at their two and three bedroom suites and they are as equally amazing as the one bedroom. Next time we stay there with friends, it will definitely be the three bedroom suites.

If your plans are to be out and about and not necessarily stay at the hotel by a pool or restaurant, then this is a great hotel.

We spent two nights at the Valentina Suites in early August with another family and their children. The suites were extremely clean, spacious, and modern. The beds were extremely comfortable, the bathrooms had ample space for our group of 8, and the kitchen was well-stocked with plenty of amenities. The front desk was friendly and attentive, and the location, with it's distant view of the ocean from our patio, was excellent. We only had two minor issues: 1) we couldn't get the entertainment system to work well. We could watch TV and DVD's, but our iPods wouldn't play through the dock, even after a couple of attempts by the service people, and 2) the mattresses on the sofa couch are truly unusable. It was interesting because we overheard another family making the same statement. Our compromise was to allow the children just to sleep on the couch using the cushions. That said, these are minor issues that can easily be resolved by this top-notch location in Pismo. We will definitely consider Valentina Suites in the future.

Room Tip: The 200 level rooms appear to face the ocean, but I would call to confirm if that is a priority. There are rooms above most of the lower level rooms, and some noise will come through.

Thank you for your comments and we will look into our sofa beds. So sorry you were not able to fully use your surround sound system in your suite. Since your visit we have corrected the issue and guests can enjoy their I-pod music through out the suite and the patio. Valentina Suites is located in a great location, in the heart of Pismo Beach just steps from coffee shops, award winning restaurants, and great shopping. Thanks again for your comments we appreciate it.

We loved Suite 402: the 3-bedroom / 2-bathroom apartment was super spacious for our family of 4. The living room and master bedroom had a patio and a gorgeous sea view. Warm, efficient and friendly welcome, and every room is well-decorated and equipped. There is a big walk in closet in the master bedroom, as well as a convenient washer and dryer. There is also secure, covered parking. Everything was immaculate and we really enjoyed the central location, just a five-minute walk from Pismo's beach, shops and restaurants. A keeper!

This is the perfect place for a family get away! We have stayed in units 501 and 402, both spacious during two separate trips to Pismo. Both units are designed for comfort. Plenty of room for the separate activities of multiple generations. Can't beat the location either...just blocks from the beach and surrounded by stellar restaurants! We will be back again...and again! A gem! Only downside is mandatory 3 night stay on holiday weekends.
