What a wonderful hotel!!! Staff was first class - friendly and helpful. Did not want for a thing. Great location - safe and easy to get to. Afternoon cookies around the fire were just the way to finish the day of.f. Would DEFINITELY stay again and highly recommend it.

Stayed at Sandcastle with my wife and 2 children (8 - 10) and we had a great time. Very good service and accomodation, breakfast (included) has a great value. Friendly front desk personnel.

We took a risk to visit Pismo Beach during Christmas storms in CA, however, everything turned out great. Besides sunny weather, the location of this hotel is superb. Its backdoor opens towards the Pacific ocean and a mere 20 ft walk takes one to the sands. My wife and kids loved the walks, sights and smells around this location. We visited Monarch butterfly grove and kids learnt a lot about these beautiful creatures and the natural ecosystem in the Wonderful ambience of Pismo Beach and Sandcastle Inn. Their staff is very efficient and generous, they surprised the 3 kids with Christmas gifts. We enjoyed complimentary breakfast and 24x7 self serve coffee facility to make most of this trip. Already planning to be back there in Summer.

We recently stayed at the Sand Castle Hotel in Pismo Beach, California. What a delight this hotel turned out to be!!! We were right on the ocean with spectacular views. The hotel staff were extremely helpful and friendly in every way. To top this off our free breakfast in the hotel was beyond expectations. It was a full hot breakfast that came along with the room. The price was very reasonable for all we received. Our room was clean and we had plenty of room. I highly recommend a stay at the SAND CASTLE in Pismo if you are in this area. Golf Courses are much more reasonable than Palm Springs and there is plenty to do for all ages.

Visiting our kids over Christmas, we stayed for the first time at the Sandcastle Inn and were very glad we did.
The location is great. Walk to all the wonderful restaurants and other businesses in Pismo Beach. Terri at the desk and the manager, Roger really made us feel at home.
Our room was clean and comfortable. The view of the beach and the pier were amazing.
It was nice to have the breakfast available to start our day. If you enjoy coffee, the Sandcastle provides Santa Barbara Roasting Coffee in the room and the lobby. It's some of the best we've had. A very nice touch

Sandcastle Inn offers quiet, comfortable rooms, friendly staff and a beautiful view of the ocean. What more could you ask for a weekend getaway. Sandcastle Inn is right on the beach, step out on your private patio or one of the guests patios and enjoy the sun and ocean view. And the sunsets are romantically beautiful. One step out the door of this Inn and you are walking the sand or heading to the pier and town and don't forget lunch at the world famous "Splash Cafe," home of the best clam chowder. No matter the time of year we have always enjoyed our stay and have never been disappointed.

Our room faced the beach, with a patio door allowing quick access. First trip with our cats and they did well in the room. They must be able to remove all traces of previous animals, since our cats weren't bothered. We heard no barking dogs, even though they were on the same floor. There are dedicated pet-friendly rooms. The hotel supplied a water dish for the cats and free cookies every evening for us. The continental breakfast included make-your-own waffles and fruit. The hotel is located near the pier shopping area and fun restaurants. We will stay there again.
