Pismo was a one night stop for us between SF and LA, but I was so pleased with our stay at The Spyglass Inn! We arrived later than expected, yet still greeted with a very welcoming gentleman who even took the courtesy of offering us cookies and was very helpful with dinner options. The rooms were very spacious and homely,...

In fairness, it's a very busy time of year in Pismo. We ended up in a double queen end unit close to the highway. We got a room with a balcony, and the way the hotel is situated we could also see a peek of the ocean so were happy. The bad news is we quickly realized their was no...

Easy to find, excellent location just off the main road. quick efficient reception staff. Accommodation is block format, parking outside the room. Our room was on the first floor overlooking the swimming pool. The room was massive, clean and tidy, small balcony, bathroom was equally as large. Beds comfortable plus Wi-Fi with excellent tea & coffee making facilities. Ice machines...

My family and I stayed here as part of our first stop on our PCH road trip. The view from the room is unbeatable and the beds are pretty comfy. We didn't get a chance to try the restaurant but it was always packed and had great entertainment at night. The cleaning staff and the front desk staff were always...

I could honestly say this is one of the better hotels I've stayed at and a very memorable trip as well. We had an amazing room on the first floor over looking the ocean. The room was filled with towels and amazing bath products. My boyfriend ended up taking me down on the beach and proposing to me after 4...

For a rate of $251 per night I wouldn't expect an ocean view room. That said I would expect a gracious and courteous welcome to the property. Please lower your expectations. If you would like a property that is slightly above a Motel 6, coupled with a staff that should not be in the hospitality business, this is the property...

I am tempted to give a 2 star review, but the hotel manager was more than fair with me when I expressed my disappointment. The room was very nice with (my favorite) Philosophy bath products. I just could not get past the lack of A/C. It was completely uncomfortable & soured the whole experience. For the price point, these rooms...
