“The view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

Great hotel, must get the ocean view room, could have sat there all day gazing at the ocean.
Perfect location, walked to everything. Great food at Rosa's, 5 minute walk. Nice breakfast in the morning.

Room Tip: Any oceanfront room.

Beautiful room with the whole Ocean view, own balgon. The hotel has great location by the beach! And what a beach. Running during the sunset was awsome. Waves are magnificiant ecen if we don't surf. Pismo Beatch is propably one of the most beautiful beaches. I love this!

We arrived early and the staff was very accommodating in letting us check in early...what a relief that was. As I grew up in the area I was familiar with the appeal of Pismo Beach and staying overnight was a dream come true, listening to the waves all night was very relaxing. The accommodations were as advertised: our room was clean and comfortable and enjoyable. Recommend this hotel highly.

Room Tip: Rooms on north side face the beach, coastline and town

Great place for stop-over on the way to SF. Nice town and shops. Our room was on the ground floor overlooking the car park and beach. Very good size room with two King beds. The breakfast was OK, however the room was very impersonal. What a difference a table cloth, real cups and cutlery would make. Pity we did not get to see the third floor patio, but we did get to walk all around the town. I would come back to this hotel and town.

We stayed here in 1 B/R partial view of the beach. Checked in at 4pm, Rachel was very nice and accomodating. She is the front desk personnel mentioned in previous reviews by people.
The hotel is few steps from the beach. The children and us, 4 adults in our group enjoyed eveything - from their breakfast, surrey (bike ride), and location.Our families never had any issues about our rooms - bed so comfy, rooms are clean, Keurig coffee available, and more. For sure, we will stay here again when we go back to Pismo. Next time, we are going to book on the 3rd floor with the view of the beach. Thanks to the hotel staff for being so wonderful.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms with complete beach view. Also, don't forget to ride the surrey.

This place is first class at a value price! You cannot beat the location! You can walk to the shopping , restaraunt areas! However, the highlight is the third floor patio! Lounge chairs, firepower gas heater! You can sit for hours and people watch as the hotel is on the boardwalk! I will stay longer next time! Did I mention, free cookies! Kids loved it!
