“Beautiful Views and Great Family Fun”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We stayed here with our three teenagers and everyone loved it. We had a 2x2 suite which meant the teenagers had their room with two queen beds and a full bathroom and we had ours with a queen and full bath and balcony. They had lots of great activities to keep everyone busy, ping pong, badminton, giant chess board, a pool, etc. They were far enough out of town to enjoy the peacefulness but easy enough to get to anything. We went into Paso Robles and some of the other surrounding communities as well. The grounds are very well kept and the staff is wonderful. The breakfast in the morning and cookies in the evening were a nice touch. The rooms were very clean and the beds comfortable. The only issue we had was they do not have air in the rooms (not necessary 99.98% of the time, but we happen to be there during a terrible heat wave) so it was very warm in the evenings when we would close things up to sleep.

I have recommended this hotel to friends and they loved it too. The central coast is one of my favorite places so we will definitely be back.

Our family of 4 stayed here 4 nights with an oceanfront view on the 3rd floor. Spectacular views of dolphins and whales! Great location with a short walk on the beach to downtown Pismo and family friendly with kid activities at the hotel. Location is right off 101 and next to a convenient free trolley ride to Avila beach. My family highly recommends staying here and we look forward to next years stay!

Room Tip: Oceanfront view rooms are spectacular!

Steve, we look forward to your stay next year as well! I agree, the views of the dolphins and whales have been spectacular this summer. We have been very lucky to have them playing offshore quite often this summer. Please let us know if we can assist with your next reservation in any way.

So glad we chose this hotel over two others I was looking at that were closer to town. This is slightly north of the Pismo Beach downtown area and is quieter and prettier. The stretch of beach right below the hotel is great for walking and is easily accessible, as long as you're not carrying a lot of beach stuff. We stayed for three nights and it was a pleasant stay. Here's my pros and cons:

Pros:
Clean rooms, comfortable beds, fantastic view (from 3304), helpful and courteous front desk staff, surprisingly quiet even though the hotel was at capacity on the Saturday night, nice having a little fridge, sink and microwave in the room, nicely kept grounds.

Cons:
Height of the shower head - if you're over 6' you may have an issue. Not particularly "green" with their tiny bottles of shampoo, etc. Why not install dispensers and save the planet that way? Not enough towels for our party so I had to ask everyday for more. Breakfast area way too small when hotel busy (as mentioned in many other reviews). Our room was not serviced on Sunday so when we returned from being out all day at 5:00 p.m. to get ready for dinner, we had to call the front desk. The excuse was that they had been full the night before so housekeeping was behind. Why would that be my problem? They came in about 15 minutes after the call and did a quick tidy which was sufficient. Surely if you know you are going to be busy you arrange your staff to accommodate.

We are glad that you chose our hotel as well! I'm sorry that you had an issue with the shower head. We'll take a look at the shower head in that particular room and see if there is something that can be adjusted. I am 6'3" so I can appreciate a well placed shower head as well. I am so sorry you had to wait for your room to be serviced so late in the day. I'm glad that this didn't deter from your stay and that you enjoyed the amenities and that the staff took good care of you. I agree, the ocean views are spectacular!

Stayed for three nights. Great property and staff. Very clean. Becky was very nice and helpful as well. She got us a great oceanfront room on short notice over a weekend. I think we've found a new home when we're in Pismo.

Stayed here for 5 nights in July. Had the family room, 1107. No view but we opted for the two beds. We have two kids under 12 and the activity area was a big hit with them. Very little interaction with hotel staff but what interactions I had were pleasant. If you are not familiar with the area be advised that it is in the high 60s to low 70s in July and August. If the wind is up it can be cool at the beach. I would recommend this hotel for a family. It is clean and maintained well.

Using the hotel as a stop off between San Fransisco and Hollywood, we got a pleasant and professional welcome from Reception staff. The two bedroom, two barthroom suite was superbly appointed, the beds were comfortable and the balcony great for looking out on the ocean. This really set us for a lovely one night stay. The 2nd floor room had an ocean view, and the pool and spa, though small were fine for sunbathing and relaxing. As we left for an evening meal we spotted a circle of fish on the ocean surface that was a prelude to dolphins feeding then surfing the waves about 100 yards off the sands. All in all, I could not recommend this hotel more highly.

Liked this hotel but found the noise of people walking around in the room above us kept us awake and woke us up early. Pool was good and the breakfast good Loved the location. It is only a short walk down the steps to the beach which is good for walking.
