“Spacious and clean”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2011

The Pismo Lighthouse Suites provided excellent, comfortable accommodation for a family. The two bedroom suite was great for anyone staying with children and very thoughtful provisions were included. The staff were very friendly and helpful and very knowledgeable about the area. The big breakfast is fantastic for anyone hitting the road early. Great value for money and the pool/games area was a nice bonus! We would definitely stay here again.

We had 2 suites reserved and they placed us right beside each other - very convenient for our group since we were doing a California road trip. Nice location - wish we had a view of the ocean from our suite but because of our suite type, it wasn't possible - maybe next time. Will definitely stay here again if there are plans to be in the area. Good place to relax and affordable.

Great location, clean rooms. Very very thin walls!!! NO VIEW of anything but the car park and the game area, all cramped together so it compounds the noise factor. On the first floor so we could hear above, beside - noise from the car park, the road, the rooms - and not people making excessive noise - conversations, walking making a drink, going to the loo.... Awful...so for goodness sake spend some money on this place and get SOUND PROOFING.. On the plus side the pool was lovely for the 5 minutes it wasn't filled with screaming, splashing, shouting kids....

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

This is our 3rd stay at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites. We always get a suite with an ocean view overlooking the cliff. The rooms are very clean, well appointed, and comfortable. Combined with a glass wall shielded pool and area and free continental breakfast makes the room rates a great value. With easy freeway access and relative short drvies to winery's to the east and north make the hotel location valuable as well. Pismo Beach town center is a 5 minute drive or a 15 minute on the beach or sidewalk to a number of 'beach' town bars, resturants, and shopping.

Room Tip: Get a ocean view room, preferably a corner suite, a bit more pricier but the extra room is very nice...

What do you expect from a great hotel?

Location - check. Right at the beach, walk down the cliffs to the beach. Also close to the freeway, and restaurants/downtown (though not walking distance).

Reasonable Price - check. For what you pay for 2 BR suite with a view here, you get motel quality elsewhere.

Nice room - check. Rooms are decorated tastefully, nice size. We had a good sized fridge in the room, a balcony with a nice view of the court yard. Each room had its own bathroom, so no rush in the morning, and its own tv, so not aruing about what to watch.

Service - the people here are extremely helpful. They even shipped a pillow that my son left behind - at their expense!

Others - loved the games in the courtyard. For those that have not been to the California coast in the summer: it can be quite chilly, especially in the morning. So it was nice to have something to kill time until the sun came out.

Breakfast - well, maybe the only thing that is average here. If you have seen other breakfasts that are included in the price, this is no different. It's ok and free, but nothing exciting.

Overall - great value for what you pay. We had a room next to the street but you could not tell. The suite opened to the courtyard, with a nice view. We loved the walk down to the beach, and watching the sunset from above. We will be back!! Only the next time we will pay a bit more and get a room right at the ocean....

Room Tip: If you can, get an ocean view room.

I was traveling with a colleague over a two week period and we ended up in Pismo over the weekend. It also happened to be during their huge, annual classic car show weekend. All the other hotels were charging huge rates for marginal accomodations and we were able to get a beautiful suite for less that others wanted for a single room! In addition, since it was a two bedroom/two bath suite we were able to get by with one instead of two regular hotel rooms and saved a couple hundred dollars!

The staff was courteous, the breakfast was complimentary and tasty, the ocean views were fantastic and we enjoyed a great dining recommendation in the area within walking distance!

The suite was very tastefully decorated and felt much like a vintage beachfront upscale home than a hotel room. Only minus was that my bedroom window was adjacent to a noisy hallway however it was an event weekend and that is probably an isolated circumstance.

I will return to Pismo in the future and definitely stay at this wonderful place. I would probably pay the upcharge for an ocean view suite the next time, however!

Room Tip: See above about the hallway, probable worth the upgrade to the ocean view room! Most of the parking...

If u have a family this is the best place to stay large rooms w 2 baths and a frigde and microwave. We had a room top floor on the freeway side but the noise didn't bother us plus the backside u had a partial ocean view. The pool looked ok but it was so cold n windy we didn't use it. Giant chess area w mini golf. Marie calandars is next door and its a short drive to downtown pismo but not within walking distance. There is a great path to the ocean down some old stairs its a great walk and the neighboring hotels u get a peek at. The beach was beautiful. We always love pismo beach its only an hour from home and a perfect family or romantic getaway.
