This was a girls weekend. We were treated like royalty. This was not our first time, nor will it be the last. We did have dinner in the Lido, excellent. All staff was spot on. We will be back soon. Congratulations to the new General Manager Erica Coppola! You are doing superior work.

Room Tip: So nice you want to move it!

Fantastic service from the valet to check in to the waiter at dinner. No stuffiness here, which can be an issue with higher end hotels and resorts. Highly recommend. Huge suite with balcony and great ocean view. Spotless!

This is an absolutly beautiful resort with amazing views of the ocean. Our family has stayed at several places in Pismo Beach and in Avila Beach with this experiance being the best. The rooms do not have air conditioning and the particular week of our visit the area had a little heat wave. In addition to that there was a slight maintenance issue with our first room but the staff was amazing about the situation and handeled it 100% to our satisfaction. Erika, the manager at the time, was absolutly awsome and went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our stay there. Thank you and we look forward to our next seaside vacation.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet with great views but the best views are in the middle higher up.

We stay at this hotel whenever we come to SLO to visit family. We arrived on Friday to a gorgeous ocean sunset which made us so happy after a long crowded drive from the Bay Area. The rooms are so nice and spacious that our family wants to come have dinner on our deck!

We wanted to get away for a couple of days and it was last minute trip not to far of a drive from Santa Barbara. We booked 2 nights and although one was a bit over proced due to Cal poly parents weekend activities we had a great stay on a part ocean view suite .
Great location nice rooms and indoor parking and very friendly staff starting with Jacob at the front desk. We will be back some other time for sure.

Room Tip: watch for Cal poly activties because suite prices become double the regular rate
