This hotel has a lovely location, it is right on the beach front. You can walk along the beach in to Pismo. There is complementary breakfast which is nice. Shame that the hotel doesn't have a bar or snack area, and be aware that local restaurants and cafes tend to shut at about 8.30/9pm. Would be nice if there was... More

Nestled on the bluff above the wide swatch of beach are a few hotels with private stair access to the ocean below. This is one of them. This hotel has new ownership and is freshly remodeled.

Best place to stay in Pismo Beach. Perfect for any occasion. Don't shy away due to renovations going on at the property. We were not bothered by it at all. Breakfast is free. BBQ's available for guest use. Fire pits are warm and relaxing early in the morning and during the evenings. Direct access to the beach. Rooms are wonderful.... More

We stayed for just one Saturday night, paid for a standard king room. For over $200, we were a little disappointed. The room was generally clean, but we were situated next to a hallway with access right next to our sliding door. So it was noisy. Outside our sliding door was a big concrete wall. Hairdryer and tv remote were... More

This was the second time we stayed here and we were not disappointed. This hotel is located close to the beach and downtown. The staff was friendly and accommodating. We originally were assigned to a pet friendly room but upon request we were promptly switched to another room.

Stayed here a few weeks ago to celebrate our anniversary. Wanted to stay somewhere private and secluded near the beach. The hotel is right next to the coast with 24/7 beach access right onto Pismo Beach. They have pools and hot tubs available which were nice and well maintained. The rooms were great. We had a beautiful view of the... More

The views are gorgeous, that's fact. However, for the price you pay on rooms there isn't a gym, restaurant or bar on site which makes you have to go out for everything. Customer service is mediocre as well. If you want a basic accommodation, stay somewhere cheaper because the price you pay doesn't get you very far.
