“We would stay here again. Kid friendly and clean.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

We would stay here again. Kid friendly and clean. Hilton honor member so had a nice room with view. Spacious bedroom. Location to eateries, beaches and shopping. Good value. Pool and spa is very clean although temperature in pool could be warmer.

We had left Anaheim and were driving up the coast when it got dark and because we didn't want to miss anything we pulled into the Hilton. We have stayed in many Hilton's in the past and this one did not disappoint. Chad at the front desk was very helpful and gave us a gorgeous room. We ordered room service was tasty hot and arrived quickly. No complaints at all.

Room Tip: We had a lovely room looking over the pool

This was a very nice room . The problem.is that the heater would get stuck on or the.a/c would.stay on. After the ac was turned off the room got to
78 degrees. We opened the window and turned on the fan but the fan made it hotter.on a nicer note they had complimentary cookies that were fabulous and free popcorn

Gordon J, General Manager at Hilton Garden Inn Pismo Beach, responded to this review, November 25, 2012
Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I was happy to hear how much you liked your room and the little extras we do to make our guests happy. I was sorry to hear that you had a problem with the thermostat. It is our goal to make sure that our guests are totally satisfied. Housekeeping sets the thermostats in each room at 71 degrees during this time of the year to make sure the room is comfortable for our arriving guests. The guest can adjust the thermostat upon arrival.

Stayed here one night while on route from San Fran to Los Angeles. This is a nice little hotel. Chad on reception was very friendly and check in was efficient and completed within a minute or two.

Rooms are an excellent size and comfortable. The only strange thing is there was only a net curtain on the window, no blinds or curtains which could be closed! OK I guess if you like to wake up to natural light but didn't pose too much of a problem.

The restaurant in the hotel was very reasonably priced and had a good variety on the menu. The dessert I ordered wasn't available so the waitress brought me an alternative at no charge which was a nice touch. As a Hilton Gold cardholder I receive a free cooked breakfast which was tasty and extremely good value for $12.95 had I been paying.

Hotel also had free popcorn and other nibbles in reception for you to help yourself too. Pool, spa pool and well equipped fitness room are also available.

Stayed one night. Excellent check in staff, very helpful regarding directions and dinner recommendations. Rooms very clean and quiet location. Although we were on freeway side we did not notice traffic noise. Good size rooms and comfortable.

This hotel is very unique, although viewing it from the highway would not tell you that! It is located on a hill. The front entrance is actually on the 4th floor! Some rooms have ocean views, although it is distant. Centrally located next to Highway 101. Rooms are clean and the staff is friendly. They need to work a little on the breakfast area as far as the made to order items. If you arrive when it first opens, the staff may be somewhat disorganized. It is also a host hotel for Cal Poly Sci sporting activities. There were college golfers staying at the hotel, but they were very quiet. However, the golfers need to learn not to bring their golf clubs and backpacks to breakfast and drop them in the walkway. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here for one night on our California road trip.
There was a big religious conference on our floor but they didnt make any noise and were very pleasant guests.
We took our own snack and a drink down and sat out next to the pool to watch the stars.
Room was very good, both in size and quality which is what you'd expect from Hilton Garden.
Very easy to get down to Pismo Beach, we went for the day in the waves and then went back down for the sunset and then back in again for a coffee and juice at one of the funky hippy-dippy type places. Wish theyd take their hats off and put a t-shirt on though when others are eating. Not naming the place though. Chill, peace!
Big outlet place opposite with all the usual names - Ralph Lauren, Nike etc etc and very easy to get over to.
Can't go wrong here but didnt use any eating facilities though

Room Tip: ask for one upstairs overlooking the highway. Lively view.
