We stayed here one night on our way down to LA. Pismo is a nice laid back surfer town and this place matches the vibe of the town.
The location is good with a nice view over the bay, and a short drive from the beach, shops etc. however it's right on the motorway so if your on that side of the property you do get a bit of traffic noise.
The rooms are huge with a nice balcony. The furnishings are nothing special but everything is clean and where it should be.
This looks like it would be a cool place to take kids as they have a pool, ping pong, short tennis courts, giant chess and a whole manner of things to keep them occupied.
The staff are cheerful and attentive and the breakfast is plentiful and more than adequate quality.
Overall, a fun stay in a cool town.

My husband and I took my Mom on a weekend Mother's Day trip and stayed in an oceanfront king suite for two nights. We were very impressed with the size and cleanliness of the room, but the view took the cake. We also enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast and were impressed with how the breakfast crew kept the dining area clean and the food stocked. Actually, we felt that ALL the hotel personnel were warm and helpful. When we left, my Mom realized that she left her jacket in the room, so we drove back to pick it up after calling the front desk. Not only did we get her jacket back, they also found my husband's iPad which he hadn't realized he left behind. We truly appreciated that extra attention and follow-through.

This is truly a high quality place and operation.

We are a family of five (2 adults 11 yr old son, 10yr old twin girls) on holiday from New Zealand. We booked our room online and found our stay to be a wonderful realxing one.

The receptionist was friendly and welcoming, the 2 bdrrom suite spacious and nicely decorated. We were lucky enough to receive a free upgrade so had sea veiws, which was gorgeous at sunset. We used the pool and spa, laundry and family recreation area all of which were well maintained. Breakfast was great also. We stayed in 20 motels on our month long holiday from New Zealand and rated Pismo Lighthouse Suites in the top 5 we stayed at. We'd defiantely recommend it, especially for families as we found accomodation for 5 sleeping in one unit quite hard to find. Thank you.

Good place for families because of separate rooms, etc. but the decor & bathrooms are in need up upgrading. The bathrooms are "Motel 6" -ish, small & kind of yuck, meaning I didn't want to give my kid a bath in the tub.

The two bedroom 'suite' is a good value although the term 'suite' is somewhat misleading. The two rooms are connected by a hallway and the larger bedroom has a table, micro, and small refrigerator. The second, smaller bedroom contains a bed, chair, dresser and nightstand. It works well for a family but adult couples might be more comfortable with two separate rooms since all of the amenities are in the larger bedroom. As in most California hotels, they have a very strict 'no smoking' policy which extends to the balconies and grounds.

We had an oceanfront room. Great view and great room, very spacious. I would recommend this place to everyone. Great place for a family trip too. This is one of our favorite places to stay in Pismo Beach.

We tend to be a little picky with our accommodations, since when we are away we like to feel a bit pampered. The Lighthouse actually surpassed both our expactations and our hopes! The waterview suite was worth every nickel. The location near a lot of fun stuff, the beach front room, nice restaurants within walking distane, clenliness and fun/interesting decor all served to make it an excellent stay.

The only downside was we had not planned a longer than overnight stay but we plan on remedying that next year. We will go back with kids & grandkids.

Room Tip: Beachside rooms are worth the extra.
