The motel is clean and pool is sparkling. Bob the manager went out of his way to be friendly. Location of the motel is good close to the beach and right across the street from the Pismo Beach Surf Shop, my granddaughter's favorite place in Pismo. My only concern was that like all old motels in Pismo was that the...

We only stayed for one night, which was fine, but I couldn't recommend a longer stay.That would be true of most motels though. The motel is clean and in a good location, close to restaurants and a short walk from the beach. The price was really good. This was the lowest price of any hotel during our stay in California,...

The motel is clean, nice beds, new furniture, very good price, staff is helpful and nice. Breakfast is below average, but it doesn't matter, if you don't like it, there are places where you can eat. The location is close to everything. Would definitely recommend the motel and we would stay here again.

Hotel is in the middle of Pismo Beach, within walking distance of Ocean, and Pier. Great location for restaurants, and shops. Rooms were clean,and quiet. If you are eating locally try Rosa's next door, for great Italian food. If you have more time and want a steak of a lifetime drive to Nipomo and stop at Jocko's.... worth the 20...

My first experiance of a motel and a very good one at that. We payed £60 for the night and the room was very, very clean (and I'm fussy) with all mod cons, fridge, iron, hair dryer etc. Parking is free, and it's 5 mins to the beach. If your staying here go to the lake 15 mins drive away....

We booked this motel as a stop over from LA to Monterey and it was everything we needed - clean, free parking, close (but not too close) to the highway and also to some restaurants/shops in Pismo Beach. After a long drive we decided to walk into the town centre to get some dinner and enjoy the sunset, this took...

if you're looking for a place to spend the night without breaking the bank, Ocean Palms is fine. We paid a total of $83 for a 2nd floor king room. It was plenty big enough, had a vaulted ceiling, with a small room off the bathroom with a large mirror, counter, micro, and fridge. The bathroom was a bit small,...
