Pismo Lighthouse Suites
Ranked #2 of 29 Hotels in Pismo Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 22, 2011

We just returned from a Spring Break trip to Pismo. We were looking for a clean place to stay, that was close to the dunes where we planned to ride ATV's and Dune Buggies. I found the Pismo Lighthouse Suites in a google search. The rates n-line were great, but I called anyway and was able to secure an awesome rate (booking direct). We chose the family suite...2 bedroom, 2 bath. No living room, but a a door separated the two rooms. There was a small fridge and a microwave.

The gal who handled the booking said that the suite had a partial ocean view, but in actuality, it was a great ocean view. They also feature oceanfront suites, but not rooms that would accommodate our party of 5. Checking in was smooth and while we waited for our room, we enjoyed the sports terrace which featured badmitton, ping pong, mini golf, and a life-sized chess/checkers game.

The suites sit on the cliffs above Pismo Beach, and it is a five minute walk to the sand. There is not a spa on site, but they can refer you to one. A free Continental breakfast was included, but it was more than just basic... we had: waffles, cereal, danish, bagels, coffee, tea, hot chocolate, hard-boiled eggs, and yogurt.

Our suite was very clean and the beach decor was pleasant. One note: there is no air-conditioning, but we found the ocean breeze to be adequate to cool off the rooms.
We would definitely return (maybe without the kids next time).

Room Tip: Call direct, ask for

We, 2 couples and 2 teenagers, stayed at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites, on March 16, 2011.
As we visited down the coast of California ( from San Francisco to San Diego), this place was, by far, the best stop we made. A very well up kept property, well spacious rooms, so clean that we all felt like we were the first guest there, staff very friendly and helpful, way better than expected for a place to sleep and let us not forget the continental breakfast was the best we've ever seen with lots to eat and spotlessly clean.
This place I would definitely recommend to anybody looking for a great place to be.
Best of all the price was very reasonable....

Driving down the California coast we were booked here for one night. It was the nicest room we ever stayed in and surely the cleanest. My daughter said it perfectly, it's no one ever stayed here before us. The beds and bedding were superb. The decor was really nice. The view from our room was just a partial view of the ocean but that doesn't matter to us since we're not there to stay in our room. We were travelling with our daughter, another couple and their daughter. Our suite had 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, fridge and all the rest of the amenities. The grounds outside were also very clean just like they swept everyehere. the continental breadfast was excellent, a lot of choices for cold breakfast, make your own waffles.As we were only there for 1 night and just got there at supper time we didn't get to enjoy the beach except for a walk at dawn and that was beautiful too. When you look at pictures you see this motel on cliffs but there is a very nice path that leads to the sand. I would definately stay here again and next time longer and would highly recommend it to anyone. The staff that we spoke with and the lady in the breakfast room were very nice.

The suites are the way to go. Your children get their space while us adults get alittle privacy. Plenty of deck games to keep the family organized in between excursions. You can swim , play ping pong, put a golf ball, play net sports or move large chess pieces. Access to one of the best walking beaches is close by and the ocean views are really great.

Room Tip: Book in advance for oceanfront suites.

This is a great hotel. We stayed in a family suite, which had a king bed in 1 bedroom & 2 queen beds in the other, both rooms had a bathroom. A view of the ocean from the balcony, We had plenty of room to cater for 2 adults & 2 children (ages 10,14). The suite was clean & comfortable. We stayed only 1 night, it was a stopover driving from LA to SF but could have definately stayed longer. The breakfast included was great. Pool/Spa area looked nice. Pismo Beach is a great town, nice Italian restaurant, great pier & some cool shops Also outlet shopping not far. Very nice location. Good value.

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view, may have to pay more though.

We love this hotel. The location is great as you don't have random beach people walking past your room, but the beach is right there . The game court is awesome and the kids couldn't get out there soon enough each morning. Breakfast gets crowded towards the end, but plenty of food, something for everyone. Room was spotless as seems the norm for this hotel. We enjoyed every aspect of our stay for the third time. We will definitely be back. Sign up for their emails. You might get a better rate.

Have nothing bad to say about this hotel. View from my room so wonderful.
My 15 months daughter loved their breakfast. My 65 years old Mom can't stop talking about this hotel. I'll definitely go back to this hotel.
