“Great stay, great price and a sweet view”
Reviewed December 28, 2013

Very nice room, ocean view, balcony, very spacious, comfortable bed for a very fair price. We loved the restaurant too. Delicious food, ocean view, fantastic service & reasonable prices too. Would definitely return again.

Room Tip: higher floors have the best partial ocean view. That is what we had.

My daughter and I had a fabulous time. The room was clean, the staff was very nice and the price was very fair. We just couldn't believe that a place right on the ocean would be so affordable. Absolutely beautiful view.

We went over to the Spyglass Inn restaurant and had a marvelous breakfast at a great price. The staff was very nice and the food was tasty.

I will definitely return and refer others to the Spyglass Inn. Thank you for a great time.

Room Tip: They have specific rooms that look directly out to the ocean. Open your door and there you are. Even...

Needed an ADA room and was pleasantly surprised. Room was easy to access and had a great roll-in shower. The attached restaurant was close and also easy to get to. Good food and great views. There's a coastal walking path close by. Didn't use the pool or spa but noticed they were also ADA accessible. Very affordable. Will definitely come back in or out of the wheelchair..

Room Tip: Our room didn't have ocean view but was in one that did. Highly recommend.

We stayed in an ocean view room with a balcony specifically to get a snapshot of the sunset. We were not the only ones with the same idea and we were NOT disappointed. This sweet coastal inn is indeed along the coast line, shared with several other vacation properties. There is access to a small beach and surfers were in the water each day. Dog friendly, there were many people walking their dogs. There is a nice restaurant on the property which has a fantastic view, heated outdoor seating, and a well-stocked bar. The pool is super small, not heated but we used it anyway! Room was big with plenty of space and towels. It was very comfortable and affordable. Go there!

Room Tip: Ask for ocean view.

Pismo is about 4 hrs from SF and 4-3 to LA. Good stopping point for those not in a rush. As with the vast majority of hotels, one needs to select and pay for a view. We found it affordable and the staff helpful in picking the best room available within the confines of what we were paying. Ours had a little balcony outside. Believe a small fridge (not mini bar but a proper small fridge was standard). The queen beds seemed to be true queen beds (not the scaled down "queens" so many hotels have) but the pillows were foam, which gave us neck cramps. (we are picky about beds, sheets, pillows...and noise). There's a string of hotels right next to each other all along the beach and freeway - many might be in the reach of freeway noise. Our room was OK, but we could definitely hear trucks much of the night.

The spyglass inn was an affordable place to stay in Pismo! The room was clean and the staff was incredible. We just need to stay the night and this was the perfect place. I wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the beach views!

The rooms are clean and decorated well. There's a big difference where your room is located as far as the view. If you want an ocean view you'll have to specify and possible pay more. The hotel is located on a bluff over the ocean near other nice hotels as well, so you can take a nice walk and visit other bars/ restaurants.
