“Great one night stay”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Stayed here for one night on a road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles....really lovely Motel. Perfect location as only a few minutes walk to the beach and close to the highway (so we didn't get lost!) Lovely owners and nothing was too much trouble!

I visited this motel on 4/22/13-4/25/13 the room has a pool as well as the beach being in walking distance. I asked the maid for clean towels and I was told I needed to ask the manager. I told her u cleaned my room before I showered for the day I had taken a walk to see how close I was to the beach. I showered when I got back so I needed clean towels to bath that night or the next morning. Its pretty sad when they dont wanna give u clean towels because they're being cheap about it. You know people come for vacation and is likely to get in water multiple times during the day what are the suppose to dry off with after getting out the water as well as showering. I paid good money to stay there clean towels should not be an issue. I also had an incounter with the locals roaming the parking lot late night checking out the cars or should I say scoping out the cars and the belongs (those were the locals own words scoping out) so tell me what does that sound like to you?

Dear tea 1976,

I wanted to take the time to reply to your review regarding your recent stay at the ocean palms motel in pismo beach, we would like to make it clear that your room was cleaned in a timely mainly around your schedule and activities and that your room was refreshed with ample clean towels, for your use, i would also like to explain to you, that we have never refused extra towels to any of our guest staying with us all they need to do is ask the front desk, and we have always tried our hardest to provide what is needed, you also end by writing something that is ONLY your opinion and NOt true Facts so i would ask that you not do so.

All we needed was a way station on our drive from Santa Cruz to Anaheim and this was the place. Very ordinary, tired room and furniture. Totally stripped down basic breakfast. Commercial muffins, dry cereal, waffle maker like many other places. Skipped breakfast and went to Starbucks. It was fine for what we needed, but nothing special. Not bad, not good.

I spent there one night and i was pretty happy. The room was ok in size with a tv, fridge and microwave. The bathroom was very big and clean, which is the most important thing for me. The breakfast was basically nothing, but we ate the rest if the last-night dinner, so the microwave was handy :-). Location is ok, short walk to the beach and small restaurants and a very short drive to outlets and walmart. It was a bit noisy, because the highway is directly in front of the motel, but it was bearable. The pool is unfortunately not heated and there is no safe in the room, which would have been an issue if i stayed longer, but for one night it was really more than ok. Would stay here again.

Nice enough little motel to explore Pismo Beach and Edna Valley wineries. The room itself was compact, but the bathroom was a good size. I did hear a fair bit of freeway traffic through the closed windows. Close enough to walk to some of the nice little restaurants and the beach. The pool wasn't heated, so I can't imagine it is used for about 5 months of the year. Front desk staff was friendly. I didn't have any breakfast but saw they had waffles, muffins and cereals. Fine for a cheap and cheerful stay!

Thank you Bob!

On short notice you upgraded from a Queen to a King room, No extra charge.
With your location only blocks away from Pismo Beach pier, we could walk everywhere.

Your rooms are very clean, comfortable and pet friendly! Having a picnic area was a big cost saver. We BBQ fresh surf and turf every night. While relaxing with our pups.

We will diffidently come back to visit you again...

Room Tip: Pet friendly room close to park and picnic area....
