We live locally and recently were visited by family. We choose the Spyglass Inn because of the comfort and access to the Ocean for the family. The pool and hot tub are perfect. The Resturant is also located directly on the Ocean (nothing to obstruct the view) . The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The Hotel is within walking distance to shopping if needed and within a couple miles driving distance to the beaches this area is so famous for. We recommend the Ocean front King or Queen room for maximum views.

Room Tip: Ocean Front Top Floors

With our busy schedules we were only able to stay one night. We were celebrating our 19th anniversary. We arrived a little early and the friendly staff was very accommodating and checked us right in. The view from our room was gorgeous. The room itself was welcoming and cozy. The bathroom was a little small but it had everything we needed. The walking trail was very nice and had easy access to the beach. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west end of property have a beautiful view of the ocean.

This is my third stay here. I always stay just three nights, and I wish I could stay longer!The restaurant food is very good. I never leave without a farewell- morning omelette. Delicious! I'll be back again.

We have been staying here quite a few times over the past six years. The first time we chose it not knowing really anything about it. It was a pleasant surprise. It is an older property in Shell Beach and is next to 2 newer more expensive properties. One section does have ocean views and is dog friendly. There is a nice restaurant on the property that has ocean views and seating outdoors with heat lamps. The first time we were here, we saw dolphins. There is a nice walkway that runs behind the hotel and the two hotels next door. It leads down to the stairs that go down to the beach. This time was the first time in years that I found lots of small seashells. The sunset was beautiful to watch from here.

While this property may not be the fanciest, it is nice to stay here away from the crowds that can gather in downtown Pismo Beach.

While I enjoyed being able to hear the ocean when I opened my windows, overall I was a bit disappointed in my stay. The room is outdated and could use some serious upgrading. No elevators made it a haul to lug luggage up the stairs. The outside of the property was very so-so. It would be ok for a quick stay and it met our needs for one night so we could paddle and explore the area, but it wouldn't be my first choice upon return.

We recently stayed two nights at the Spyglass Inn in Pismo Beach, CA. We highly recommend this hotel. It is a fantastic location right on the Pacific Ocean in a lovely setting along the Central Coast of CA. We were impressed with the service and the responsiveness of the staff. Our room was well maintained and very clean. It is a great value.There is a good restaurant right adjacent to the inn which has a patio for dining. For dinner it was just nice not to have to get in the car and drive after already driving for 5 hours. After we checked out we walked along the path taking in the view just a little longer. Every staff person we spoke with was very accommodating and friendly. They know how to do hospitality.
