A lovely friendly5 night stay in a sea view suite.Huge comfy bed.Each room had a large modern flatscreen TV.2bathrooms with separate bath and shower.views to remember for life from your balcony.Nice continental style breakfast.If you are without European then i would imagine that it would more than suffice.Cereals bagels yogurt,porridge,boiled eggs.pastries coffee and fruit teas.Nothing cooked so if you are looking for one of the large modern U.S. style fried breakfasts with pancakes etc then go elsewhere . Cannot fault it,albeit some cutlery and plates in the kitchen would have been useful but you can help yourself to plastic cutlery and plates at breakfast.Pismo an easy 10 min walk on either the road or beach. Complimentary coffee cookies and papers also. Has a guest laundry where for one2.5 dollars you can wash and dry a washing.

Room Tip: Room had3207 has a great seaview so does most of the rooms with a great3 prefix

We have stayed hear several times and we love it and so does our dog! The rooms are decorated in a fun nautical theme and are clean and cozy. Must get ocean side here! You can hear the waves crashing and is very peaceful and relaxing. The near by beach is fantastic and dog friendly as well. Breakfast is included and is a nice way to start your day! ENJOY!

We had an amazing stay at this hotel . It is right on the water with fantastic views. During our stay, the winds were quite strong so we did not spend too much time at the pool or on the sports deck, but we still enjoyed these activities. The premium ocean suite we stayed in was a great size. The "living room" faces the ocean and the bedroom faces the parking lot. It was not very crowded when we stayed so it was quiet. I would be a bit worried during busy season with the noise levels by the bedroom. However we will definitely return to this wonderful hotel!

We booked this hotel because the room configuration suited our needs and it was a beach front property. We were definitely not disappointed in the room or the property. Our room was one of the family suites, with two queen beds and a bath in one room and a king bed, bathroom, sitting area and microwave/fridge in the other room. There is no actual "living room" or kitchen, just a table and two chairs and a small fridge and microwave in the larger king size bed area. The larger room also had access to a balcony area that had two chairs and a small table.

Everything was very clean, well maintained and nicely decorated in a seaside motif. Being from Colorado, having the ocean anywhere close to us was wonderful. We had a teeny, tiny view from the balcony, but the beach access from the hotel is very close and easy to get to. The hotel is right on the beach, although a huge cliff restricts immediate access; a somewhat uneven wooden stairway gets you down to the sand and we had a wonderful time collecting seashells and dozens of sand dollars. There is also a fitness room, nice pool and hot tub area and another area for playing ping-pong, badminton, basket ball, mini golf and giant chess or checkers.

The breakfast offerings were reasonable, primarily carbs, but hard boiled eggs were available along with the normal cereal offerings, fruit bowl, donuts, sweet rolls, toast, and bagels. An attendant served Belgian waffles made in irons that turned out four mini Belgian waffles at a time - considering all the kids that are here, having an attendant for this is brilliant! During cooler months, there is very little inside seating, but if it is warm enough, sitting on the deck surrounding the breakfast room is a great choice.

The buildings have wood floors and the hallways are, of course, also wood, so the noise level is a little loud, but not unbearable. I loved the fact that each room had it's own thermostat to control room temperature, although there is NO air conditioner, there is the option to have the fan run continually, which helps to drown out some of the noise. There are also ceiling fans in each room and the windows and patio doors can be opened to let in the ocean breezes.

All in all, we were in love with the place and could have stayed a lot longer than five nights!!

We loved having you and your family stay with us on your visit out to the coast from Colorado. I am glad that everybody enjoyed their stay. While you did stay five nights, I do agree that a longer visit next time is in order! Please let us know if we can assist in any way.

On our way to San Francisco we wanted to make a stop but we didnt have reservations, we stopped at Pismo lighthouses and they only had 2 rooms , beachfront! Since it was my birthday we decided it was worth it, and we are soooo glad we did, we had our 2 kids with us, the room had a sofa sleeper in the living room we they spent the night with the sounds of waves all night, the view was incredible and the beach was beautiful, clean and not many people at all, we walked to the pier and it wasn't far , less than a mile i think, the room was clean, the only "but" i have is the mattress, it was a lil too hard for my preference, but that's what it is, my preference, my husband had no complaint about it, so i guess ijust like fluffy mattresses..... and continental breakfast was great, a lot of variety...it got a lil crowded but they still had plenty of selection for everybody.....we are so happy with our stay that we are planning on going back in september for my husbands bday, this time with a reservation.....we def recommend Pismo lighthouse to everyone!!

We stayed here for one night while in the area for a college tour of Cal Poly. We had our dog with us, as did quite a few of the other guests. The rooms were extremely clean, and decorated very appropriately in a nautical theme. The suite we had was overlooking the beach, so we could hear and see the water - very relaxing and beautiful. Each of the suites facing the beach had a small fenced in patio, which was perfect for our dog, as well as grassy areas and walking paths.

It's not easy to find a dog-friendly place to stay that is also clean and up to my standards, but Pismo Lighthouse Suites definitely does. The only small problem we noticed was that the room had a bit of an odor when we first arrived, but leaving the sliding door open for a while took care of that. All-in-all, a perfect place for families and those traveling with dogs!

Room Tip: If you're traveling with your dog, ask for a bottom floor room facing the ocean.

We are happy that you chose us for a stopping point while looking at colleges. I agree, our pet friendly ocean front suites on the ground floor are the perfect arrangement for families and pets. Whether you end up with a future Cal Poly Mustang in the family or not we would love to have the entire family come back to visit soon.

Great place to stay, close to the beach (you have to walk near a couple of other properties but that's not a long way). I was there in the middle of the week, so it was also cheap.

Staff was helpful and expedited cleaning my room, while I waited on the beach, because I checked in quite too early.
