I stay here every time I come to Pismo Beach, I have stayed some times as long as a year. The management and the Owner have recently (Jan. 2013) upgraded all the bathroom cabnets and every room now has marble counter top's. I agree with Kluv77 it does take time. However I can assure you that they work to improve... More

I stayed at this motel with my fiance and honestly you get what you pay for $88 for a Saturday night wasn't bad. Staff was very friendly and helpful with all of our needs. It really could use some updating but I also give them the benefit of the doubt that to update is very costly. If your looking for... More

I stayed here last March with a friend who was incredibly last-minute with regards to his booking. I got a bad vibe from the moment I walked into the reception area, and insisted we see the room, but the lady on reception insisted on payment up front and my friend being the positive type was happy to shell out.

This motel has left me speechless. I actually like motels. I think they can be cute & quirky. This...is neither. I want to be fair, so first let's discuss the positives. It's pretty cheap - we paid around $54. It's actually cheaper to book over the phone than on http://booking.com which is how we found the place. From the outside,... More

This room cost us $210.00. My husband, daughter, husband, and granddaughter stayed here one night. I have given better blankets to the good will. These blankets should be thrown in garbage. The sheets were paper thin. The mattress and box spring were unbelievable sitting on 2x4s. The shower did not work. We could not bathe. He would not give half... More

I travel a lot for work and always look for the closest motel to my current project. Im traveling alone and only require one bed, therefore I was given room #16 (single bed).

Our room was filthy, reeked of smoke, and everything seemed to be covered in mildew. Then the manager kept harassing us to leave earlier than checkout time. Do not stay here. It may be cheap, but it's not worth it. It hasn't been fixed up, and it's just a total dump.
