Thank you for your candid feedback. I understand that you have stayed with us in the past and not had the experience that you did this time. I am very sorry to hear that your stay at the hotel was not up to par. One of the wonderful things of having a location on the coastline is the vantage point...

Wasn't very impressed for what we paid. It is a great location on the cliff where tons of birds hang out. (If you don't like birds- not your place!) The birds probably contribute to the strong odor in parts of the property. Breakfast was a good offering (but food was barely warm), the room was extremely crowded with hardly any...

The rooms are big and clean. The breakfast was excellent. Views are spectacular. Lots of seagulls make a lot of noise and are messy. As regards to Pismo beach my first view was that i hated it. However further up the cliffs there are much nicer places eg Avila Beach with great places to eat. I went for a run...

Stayed for 4 nights during Californi road trip and hit the jackpot. Location on the top of the cliff with great views of sunset and coastline just made it very special. Also at night we left the windows open to hear the ocean. It was our wedding anniversay and the hotel marked it with a bottle of bubbly on our...

Hotel is located right on the cliffs with a stunning view. Just of the highway, but not close to disturb. Staff has a high service level. A nice pool for laps and a "hot pool" is available. Parking space just outside and the price is very good for the room. Breakfast is ok. Just a few steps away from the...

Reviewed 4 August 2015

This hotel was clean and location was great, BUT, there is a natural roosting area on the cliffs directly by this hotel. The bird (pelican and seagull) sounds all night were so annoying/disruptive, we could not leave the sliding glass door open. The smell was horrible from the bird droppings, another reason you cannot enjoy the beauty of this location....

Thank you for your review and for staying with us. I am happy to hear that our hotel provided you with clean comfortable accommodations. We do appreciate your feedback and understanding regarding the birds nesting on our cliffs. The California coast is a haven for brown pelicans and other previously endangered species of birds. And while we all enjoy seeing...

Reviewed 4 August 2015

WE were able to visit the places nearby with ease as I am very familiar with Pismo Beach. The location is great. I am an Architect so this critique is related to the disparate elements all over the exterior. The log cabin railings are completely out of character with the sort of cottage design.

This hotel is placed on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean, and to the south, the Pismo Beach pier. The wing that is pet friendly (lower floor only 7 rooms total) has great views and you can hear the waves crashing below all night long. We were in room 101 which is the farthest south on the property,...

Our room overlooked a long stretch of Pismo Beach from cliffs to the pier, with a pleasant balcony for eating breakfast and watching birds and, yes, a whale! The bathroom was spacious and had two sinks which is always welcome. Breakfast was a scramble but not too bad.
