The room was very clean. That is the most important thing to me. The grounds were perfectly maintained. I loved it. My husband and daughter thought that the room could use some updating and said they probably wouldn't stay more then one night. I felt like I could live there forever! The view...you can't beat it. The breakfast was good too.

Room Tip: We had a first floor room. If I had to choose again I would either get a first floor NOT in the mi...

Very nice rooms - all ocean view, very clean rooms and exterior.Rooms doors do not have something to hold the door open to bring things in and out.The soap leaves a film on your body when you shower.Mattress need an upgrade.No microwave in the room.The breakfast is poor for the price of the room. The breakfast could be a lot better.It is a step below most motels.

Room Tip: Center rooms offers nice views in either direction.

I had a wonderful time here with two of my college aged kids, They wanted to go to a beach on their spring break, San Diego is too long a drive from Northern California, and Pismo Beach was only 4 hours away. The staff was friendly and courteous the whole 4 days we spent there. The free morning breakfast was more than I expected, and the waffles you make yourself were better than the ones I make at home.
Rooms were spacious enough for 3 people, the furnishings certainly not dated as others have said, with a very large flat screen TV. There is free access to a health club next door, my kids even did a spin class! All in all I feel this place is a great value and I wish to compliment the owner or owners on a wonderful hotel AND staff! They should all get raises. I wish all places were as great a value, and I hope that the owners keep their prices low. I know this means they will be busy, but hope they can reserve a room for me when I want....

Room Tip: All rooms face the water, so you can't miss.

We got a great deal on this hotel as it was off season. The location was wonderful-a staircase down to the ocean and plenty of beach to enjoy! Every room has a gorgeous view. The lower level rooms open up to plenty of grass area and your own patio. Parking was very convenient as well. Located just a few blocks from the pier and boardwalk area. Rooms are slightly dated, but very clean and well maintained. Great breakfast as well.

Cons-I have an 18 month old who just figured out how to open doors and the hotel doors DID NOT have an extra lock up higher. I had to barricade the door otherwise my little one could get out with one turn of the knob. Next time, I would just take a knob lock with me.

If you want a quiet romantic getaway room that faces the beach where you can leave your balcony door open and be lulled to sleep or awakened by the sound of the surf........this is it! Quit looking at stay here. Amazing views from every room but try to stay on second or third floors. Comfortable beds, great rates, walk to the beach. Awesome place. We had reservations for two nights but stayed four. Didn't want to leave. Married 32 years and this was our first time here. What a waste of the previous 31! We'll be back..............

I am sadly writing this as we travel back home! This place by far exceeds every other hotel in pismo. Great price, amazing service, simple comfortable rooms with balcony and of course that VIEW! Spas yes 2! And heated pool very clean, access to gym and yummy continental breakfast! An added plus, they have a security guy constantly walking around!
