The view is great. But you won't be able to stand outside to enjoy it unless you have no sense of smell. The Pelicans gather on the cliffs here ... and they poo & poo & poo & poo ... everywhere, on everything! I didn't listen to the other reviews on Trip Advisor about the smell because I thought, 'hey, how bad could it be?' The smell was awful ... really, really really awful. This is an average to dated hotel with average service. There are lots of other better options for a 3+ star hotel on Pismo Beach ... properties not on the cliffs so they don't have the Pelican poo problem. Don't limit your search just to hotels.com either -- there are tons of properties that don't show up there. Save your vacation -- stay away from this place. I've never written a review before ... but I feel people must be warned. The pictures they show only tell 1/2 the story. The views drew me in and that's why I took a chance. Don't waste your precious days off from work at this place ... but DO stay in Pismo. It is a great area.
