If you are in the area do not pass this by. We had a room with a private balcony overlooking the ocean and the cliffs. The room was remodeled and spotless. The sunset was breathtaking. The staff was polite, friendly and very helpful. I highly recommend this hotel!!!

Room Tip: Any room overlooking the cliffs.

This hotel is a little dated & worn due to the salt air. However, it is clean & well kept. Our room was very large with an ocean view. Housekeeping did an great job cleaning up after our family of five. The front desk staff was also pleasant & helpful.

We stayed for 3 nights on our way back to the airport. Our room looked out over the ocean, had a balcony (with great views and very curious birds!) and was a good size. We had a very comfy bed with nice pillows, a reasonable sized bathroom and good quality towels. Everything was very clean and staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was in another building, and was basic continental. There was a guest laundry, but only one washer and dryer and tended to be busy. We ate at the nearby Ventana Grill each night, wonderful food. We enjoyed our time here enormously and were sad to leave. Hearst Castle is about an hour away to the north and makes a pleasant excursion. We were also able to see the elephant seals on a beach about 6 miles further north than Hearst Castle, but that is only at this time of year. All in all a memorable few days. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: Go for full front ocean view, unbeatable.

I have stayed at several Hotels in the area and so far this one is best. They are located on a bluff above the beach without direct access and that scares people away. Ocean access is a short walk to the next Hotel. The good part about that is the lower rate at this Hotel. The staff was friendly and the ocean view we had was spectacular. Sit on your own balcony and watch a beautiful sunset. The pool was perfect for us and the breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Freshly made pancakes, fruit, cereal, hard boiled eggs. Toast, microwavable sausage and egg sandwiches, juice,, coffee and more. Gourmet? No, but filling and included in the room price. A daily savings of $20-$75 depending on the number of people in your group. When we return to Pismo, this is where we will stay.

Thank you for your feedback! I am glad that you were able to get to the beach from the adjacent hotel. We are fortunate to have the beach access conveniently located next door.
We hope to see you again during your next visit to Pismo Beach.

This hotel has the best view in the world, right above a cliff, you see nothing but the ocean, the rocks and the waves. The sound of the waves crashing is the best part, but the room is clean and fresh and really nice. We stayed here on way back from seeing Hearst Castle and it was great, we loved the view so much we got take out food from a great Italian restaurant down the street and sat on the balcony and watched the ocean and listened to the waves, so nice. Do yourself a favor and stay here if you like to look at the ocean.

Room Tip: ask for the rooms above the cliff

WOW, I am glad that you think the view is the best! It sounds like you were in our newly remodeled ocean front building. The crashing waves and views are abounded year round. It is nice to hear from you and glad you enjoyed your stay.

We stayed here one night as part of a cross US tour between San Francisco and Los Angeles.
What appears to be a small unassuming motel from the outside. Very efficient reception checked us in and we found our way to our room, with a view of the Pacific over the pool area.
Room was very well laid out, very clean and made up with an attention to details, such as towel folding, that some 5 star hotels could take lessons from.
Bed was very comfortable and air conditioning not intrusive.
A real little gem on our journey.
