My sister and I took my elderly mother here for a long weekend. She loved the beautiful view of the ocean and pier from our downstairs room and she really enjoyed sitting on her own private patio with her feet propped up, watching children play and people stroll by. The staff were all friendly and helpful, the front desk was efficient, and the breakfast room was pleasant, well stocked, and clean. We all agreed that we'll be back soon!

I've been coming to the Sandcastle Inn since I was a kid, and it never lets down. The location can't be beat; walk to all downtown Pismo shops and restauraunts. Dress in your wetsuit in your room and take a few steps right to the sand and waves.

The rooms were recently remodeled, and I was impressed with the quality of materials used in the bathrooms. There is a small refrigerator to keep drinks cooled, but the TV is pretty basic and there is no DVD player.

I've stayed at other locations in Pismo, and overall, the Sandcastle Inn can't be beat.

Our favorite place to stay at Pismo! Right off the beach and boadwalk connects to the pier and shops. I have always enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle Inn compared to the other Hotels that we've stayed at in the area. Always my first choice when just planning a get a way from the Central Valley. We love the Sandcastle Inn.

Mick has been taking us to the Sandcastle for 10 years now and let's us stay with him. The rooms are generally very comfortable and clean. Mick always enjoys the ocean views and sleeps soundly at night with the heavenly ocean surf. The staff always welcomes MicK with open arms and makes our check in swift and easy. We would never stay anywhere else in Pismo.

We have been staying at the Sandcastle Inn for almost 15 years! NEVER a disappointment. It has large, beautifully appointed, extremely clean and comfortable rooms...and absolutely NO better location on the beach. What beautiful views. The staff is extremely friendly and always accomodating. It has a beautiful lobby for breakfast with a beautiful front row view of the Pacific Ocean. We have traveled all over the U.S. and Canada and the Sand Castle Inn is right up there on the top of the list for best stays ever!

My wife and I had a waterfront room adjacent to the room of her two sisters. Both rooms were very comfortable, well prepped, and an excellent value, including a small balcony. The rooms were quiet and stayed nice and dark for late morning sleeping in. The breakfast room also overlooks the beach and is a pleasant place to eat.

Our Family always stays at Sandcastle Inn. The locations is the BEST and we have little children so we want the beach quick and close so we don't have far to walk. Well at Sandcastle you litteraly just walk out the door take bout 10 steps and your on the sand. Prices are always reasonable and the complimentary breakfast in the morning is great. They have a range of items to choose from and the waffle bar is yummy. The rooms are always clean and nice and the staff is SUPER friendly and always willing to help. I so enjoyed are recent stay. Even though we had booked 2 rooms online and only 1 was reserved in their system they were very apologetic and happy to upgrade us to a Ocean Suite which we LOVED. TOTALLY RECCOMMEND YOU'LL BE HAPPY !
