Front desk was very friendly and the rooms have been updated and are very nice. Access to beach and pier is right out the door. Plenty of restaurants and shops nearby. Ocean front rooms have a great view of the pier and sunset each night!

Best location, right on the beach. Walking distance to pier and local shops. Bikes available to rent at a reasonable price. Staff was amazing- very friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean and comfortable. No microwaves in the room, but one available at breakfast bar.

Excellent location and hotel is right on the beach. Great customer service. Hotel offers complimentary breakfast. Walking distance to many restaurants. Rooms are very large so a large family can stay in one room.

Newly remodeled room with beautiful ocean front view made this a memorable stay. Responsive and courteous staff with decent breakfast thrown in for good measure! We had a minor plumbing problem with a new fixture which was probably caused by prior occupants and which was immediately fixed by maintenance. Very impressed with responsiveness. Will definitely make this a favorite place...

This hotel has the best ocean view, best rooms, and best service on Pismo Beach. We had an ocean view suite, which was spectacular. The remodelling of the bathroom was especially nice, with a walk-in shower and modern lighting.

Had a lovely top floor suite with a king bed and ocean view which had been recently renovated. Lovely spacious room, comfortable bed, with a wet bar, frig and microwave. Staff are very pleasant. Leave the windows open and sleep to the sound of the waves. If an ocean view room isn't available, the next best thing is sitting on...

After checking into my 1st floor room in the late afternoon of a business trip, I found myself next to a very loud family with a screaming child. A call to Kayla at the front desk resulted in my swift relocation to a quieter location in another part of the hotel. Her quick thinking and willingness to make that happen...

Really great location; on sand. Undergoing renovation which, in my opinion, should be mentioned on website due to work and noise. Including Jacuzzi which is not working. 3rd floor has a very nice communal patio/balcony with comfortable sofas/chairs and fire-pit with great ocean view. Very nice for folks in the non-view rooms. Ocean front rooms (patio or balcony) being updated;...
