“Couldn't be more perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

This is a fantastic hotel. Its a 5 hour drive from home for us, but we are there 5-6 times a year for weekend getaways. The location is awesome and amentities are amazing! It is always very clean and the staff is always more than accomodating. There is so much for families to do on the activity deck plus the swimming pool, hot tub and great beach access. It couln't be more perfect. The breakfast is great, and for us, is always followed by a walk on the beach collecting sand dollars which is a family favorite! The location to other attractions is awesome whether it be SLO, Paso Robles wine tasting, Hearst Castle, Morrow Bay, Avila Beach or more, this is the place to come home to stay at night!

Room Tip: We have never had a bad room.

Stayed on busy Saturday night at this ideally situated suites hotel on the outskirts of this lively coastal town
Large suite room with bedroom and sofa bed in lounge. Room very well appointed and clean- newly decorated. Free Wifi throughout. Fantastic views over beach. Complimentary continental breakfast OK .

Room Tip: Insist on full ocean front/view- not partial ocean view and upper floors are better

Reservations easily made via a real person on the phone. Our request for beach front upper floor, end unit was granted. The two bedroom suite was clean, quiet and spacious. The balcony was a great place to take in the ocean view and breeze. The complimentary breakfast was just right and never crowded. The path to the beach was a nice clearly marked easy walk. The staff was courteous and helpful. Ample parking and even some under cover. Location was excellent and easy on and off of US101. We will stay here again in the future.

Room Tip: Call for the reservation and don't be afraid to ask for the room you want. They will do their b...

After our problems last April we had to think long and hard to decide if we wanted to chance our vacation time here again. We did, we had some troubles, but eventually had a great stay. Trouble was that even though we booked months in advance, we were given an ocean-front room with a smaller patio than most and the reason we come is for the view and it's important as we are unable to get around much. They told us that was all they had left (we were there before check-in time), but after looking closer they had their master suite available for an additional charge. Well, we really didn't have a choice as we were there for the view so we took it. We only turned on the fireplace once and we didn't use the jetted tub as we have our own, but still prefer the walk-in shower. Living area is much larger, but it is further from the TV and it meant that we could not see out either the window or the patio door from the seating area. We sucked it up and had a very enjoyable stay. I agree with the reviewer who said to be sure to keep an eye on the rate you are charged as we have had that trouble in the past and didn't mention it.

Room Tip: We've always wanted to choose a good room, but are told that they will try, it isn't possibl...

I appreciate your comments regarding your stay. I'm glad that we could work with you to find a suite that was to your satisfaction. I also wanted to respectfully clarify that the mater suite was in fact not billed as an extra charge to your account. We appreciate your return business and look forward to your next visit!

This a great place to stay on the Central Coast with beach access directly from the hotel. The suites all have a separate bedroom and two bathrooms, so works perfectly for families! The family room couch also has a pull out sofa bed. On-site activities include a pool and hot tub with ocean view, walking trails and fun things for kids such as putting greens, ping pong, badminton and a life-size chess board on the entertainment patio. This is my favorite place to stay on the Central Coast.

Room Tip: All rooms have balconies, but book a room on the water front for great ocean view and lots of whale...

We had a wonderful stay in a 2 bedroom suite. The hotel was clean, quiet and very spacious. Our room was a 2 bedroom and we had room for a rollaway bed. The hotel has exercise room, a game area for kids with badminton, ping pong, miniature golf, and a giant chess/checkers game on the deck. The complimentary breakfast consisted of waffles, cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit, hard boiled eggs, juices, breads, and pastries. Unfortunately, we didn't know what a great view the ocean front rooms had and we definately request one the next time. The are ocean front with a patio. The hotel is also pet friendly which is very nice.

Room Tip: Select ocean front room on the ground floor then you have a patio with a wonderful view. We didn...

We stayed at the Lighthouse Suites from Oct 7th 2012 for 4 days. It was great having a suite with the two bedrooms as we had my mother with us.Also a nice being able to make coffee in the room and having a fridge and microwave. Even though we did not have an ocean front room we still had a nice view.The breakfast room was excellent plenty to eat and very clean. It had a nice small gym next door, a nice small pool, but you have a great beach on the doorstep.My mother had a fall one morning on the way to breakfast and the staff were excellent, they dialed 911 and stayed with us the whole time. Lucky nothing was broken just a very bad scraped arm and twisted ankle. The staff got her back to the room and asked if they could get us anything. Later that day they sent my mum flowers and a card which all the staff signed. Each day they phoned to check if she was OK and if she needed anything, I thought this was so nice. If you have children they have a nice area for them to play.Pismo Beach is a great place to stay and plenty of places near to visit.So if you are thinking of staying at Pismo book this hotel you will be glad you did.
