“Overnight stay with Newmarket Travel Group”
Reviewed May 12, 2009

We should have been staying at the Pismo Beach hotel which looked lovely on the itinery and overlooked the ocean. This is an older style 2 storey motel with a swimming pool the size of a baby pool at most other hotels. The Reception area is bright and welcoming and there is a small library area next to the bar. The room had a King Size bed with 2 colour TVs one in the lounge and one in the bedroom. There was a Fridge in the room. The bathroom was OK but not great, extractor fan very noisy but this went off when the light was turned off. The room overall was comfortable with a seating area and also a DVD player. The Breakfast was ok with a choice of Cerial and cooked breakfast which was free of charge. To Summarise the Motel is OK for an overnight stay there are local shops and an outlet mall 200yds to the left open until 9pm as you come out of the hotel. The free breakfast made up for the lack lustre surroudings but we were still dissapointed to not be within walking distance of the ocean. Hello to all our fellow travellers who were there between In california 24/4 to 08/5.

The check-in was smooth but the staff could learn to smile more to make the traveler feel welcome. Lovely lobby and the grounds of the Oxford Suites are quite nice. The rooms are spacious; beds very comfortable with ample pillows. The TVs, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, etc. were all in working order. The room service staff was most gracious and accommodating. Towels were fluffy and not worn as I have seen in some other hotels of equal value. The breakfast (hot or cold) served on each of our three day stay were more than adequate and very filling. Each guests receives a ticket for breakfast and two drink tickets for Happy Hour each day at the front desk. Happy Hour had a good assortment of appetizers and beverages.

The improvements I would recommend are hooks to hang toiletry bags near or on bathroom door; first day of stay my shower went ice cold for some unknown reason but was fine the following days; rooms could stand to be upgraded (the furniture in our room was scarred and dinged); better lighting for reading in living room area; gym equipment very noisy. I did miss seeing the ocean but I knew that before I booked - not fault of Oxford Suites.

It was my Husband's B'day and found this place different and interesting through their web site 360 virtual tour. Wow Business center! (with two computers in the lobby). Wow Library !(No kids allowed). Wow a Gym! (what was that stinking smell in the Gym with like 4 machines).The swimming pool looked great from the virual tour, but in reality a small one. Rooms were small. All the furnitures were like 1920.
I enquired about the location to the beach during reservation and they said it is closeby. In reality, I need to take freeway. Worst location. Too many roads in front of this property. Noisy ! Nothing can be reached by a walk. Need to drive to Outlets too. Worst Balcony ! Nowhere to sit after we come out of the room.
I saw the disappointed look in my Husband's face as soon as we entered the room.We just sat very, very disappointed for some time and then got down for the evening reception. It was ok. Good amout of food with good flavor. The Morning breakfast was good too.
When we returned my friends were eager to know about this trip as this is a special one. I felt bad to let them know that this was our worst one ever.
My husband went and enquired other places near the beach which has good view and the prices from $100.
Crap! I payed $149 for this one. The reception desk needs some sunshine. Very gloomy and dull staff.

The "Manager's Special Rate" was given to me over the phone. We received two drink coupons per person for the evening cocktail reception and a hot breakfast with a decent inside / outside dining area. The pancakes were absolutely perfect and my daughter was happy to find hot sausages. I'd go back again just for the pancakes!!! We were in a hurry & we were happy to find the service was quick. The king bed was just like the **** hotels. It was nice to have the two rooms since my daughter wanted to stay up and watch a show on the pull out sleeper sofa and I was able to shut the door. We had a 2nd floor room overlooking the pool. It was a nice place for the price and easy access to the freeway. Wish we could stay another day just to see Pismo & visit the shopping outlet next door.

Discusting, dirty, would NEVER go back even it was $59 let alone the $149 we paid. Sheets stained, knob on shower broken, toilet running ALL NIGHT LONG, beds are no the most comfortable beds in town and the customer service was the worst. Secured deposit, but arrived late. They gave away our room and the lady at the counter did not care one bit. No offer to find us another room, no nothing. Then she called us 15 min and stated that she had a room. Ended up staying at the best western down the street. same price, except everything was great (and an ocean view to boot).

Oxford Suites: You REALLY need to get a handle on your establishment in Pismo Beach. They are dragging your name all over the place.

We booked this through Hotwire and paid slightly more than we had the previous night for a fabulous 4* hotel in Monterey.

I agree with a previous poster who said it would be OK if you closed your eyes from the car until you got inside the room. Somehow the outside is just so depressing - even the colours it is painted makes it look worse.

The staff at check in are really friendly and the lobby is fine - two computers for use which is great, and free fruit available.

The rooms are spacious and the bed was really comfy, so no real complaints, once you were inside the room ......... except for the noise. I could even hear snoring from the next door room!

The free breakfast was absolutely indescribably awful - the coffee was undrinkable and the cooked breakfast was inedible. It really would be better if they stuck to providing toast, cereal, bagels and fruit and invest in some decent coffee.

Would I return - probably not. Even the Hotwire price of was way too much.

We've just came back two days ago. Oxford Suites overall is a great place to stay. We enjoyed the soft bed and pillows, very comfy bed. The breakfast was served in the morning although I don't recommend the scrambled eggs and hash brown (tasted like rubber). But it was still very nice to be able to sit outside and enjoy a hot breakfast (had toasts and oatmeal). The staff was very professional and friendly. The pool was nice. The hotel is very close to an outlet mall which is a bonus. I would stay here again.

  • Liked — comfy bed and pillows
  • Disliked — furniture is a bit dated in the living room area
