“Thanksgiving Weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Great view, clean and spacious rooms. Great place to stay during holiday weekend with relatives. Free internet and with reasonable speed. Would stay at HGI again. So much to do in the Pismo Beach area.

We stayed two nights as a family at this hotel. I was thrilled to find free wifi that gave us no problems with connection or speed. That seems to be a rare event these days. Property is well maintained and everything was in good shape. Rooms were spacious for our family of four with two queen bed and plenty of elbow room. Despite this hotel's location right by the freeway, we did not notice any road noise. The staff was great and super-friendly.

This location acted much like a full service hotel.
They were able to direct me to a great local gym.
The hotel is near a broad range of great restaurants and not far from the beach.
The location is typical right off of the freeway.
There are options with beach front, but this is a great, attentive option.

After a 7 hour drive, it was such a nice surprise to walk into the lobby, popcorn and fresh water available. It was very inviting. We got a free upgrade to a king delux suite due to availability. The hotel and rooms were very clean and comfortable. I wish we could stay another night!

I read the reviews and one talked about wanting compensation for a 4-hour citywide blackout- may I just say, overly entitled much?

Every time I stay at this hotel I find it spotlessly clean, the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating and I come away relaxed and happy. The rooms are attractive and the beds are top of the line. I always use the fitness center as well as the pool and restaurant. This hotel is well run and convenient to the downtown Pismo Beach area.

My sister and I came over to the Central Coast to watch a Cal Poly football game (her son plays on the team) and stayed at this property at her suggestion, as she likes the Hilton chain of hotels (I'm partial to Holiday Inn and its affiliate properties-- also the points don't expire if you're a member of their rewards club ;-). I must say I was quite impressed with this hotel. It sits on a hill off of scenic, serene Hwy 1 and is an attractive property from lobby to room. The only thing I didn't like was the bed-- it was too hard. I even called the front desk to get instructions on how to adjust the bed to make it softer and that still didn't work for me. Everything else about the stay was fine and they offer a great, reasonably priced buffet breakfast with made to order items.

Room Tip: I can't see where there's a bad room on the property.

This hotel is great for business because it's convenient to many of the local attractions and businesses. The staff is very accommodating, friendly and they always great me with a smile. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfortable and rooms make you feel like your the only one on the property. If you are a traveler that is looking for the most value for your money, this is the place to stay.
