To celebrate my husband's birthday, I surprised him with a trip to Pismo Beach. Sandcastle Inn was offering a special (ocean view room & dinner voucher), and (based on Trip Advisor reviews), I booked the special.
Our room was spotless, and opened to a balcony facing the beach and water. Breathtaking! I will say having a lower floor room has its drawbacks - very noisy neighbor upstairs, so next time I'll book a top floor (well worth the additional $$'s).
The Inn is ideally located, and we thoroughly enjoyed walking to the pier in the evening to watch the sunset. The breakfast room is lovely, also facing the water, and the food just fine. They also offer cookies in the late afternoon, but if you wait too long, they're gone (especially if a lot of kids are staying at the hotel).
There is no air conditioning, and even though it was the first weekend in March, it was very warm. Because we were on the bottom floor, we weren't comfortable leaving our patio door open to enjoy the cool evening air.
The staff was wonderful - very welcoming and helpful.
The only negative, was that a room two or three doors from us was very VERY loud on Saturday afternoon. Apparently they were throwing some sort of huge birthday bash, with a bunch of people gathered in the one room. There were children on the beach, that belonged to several members of the group, and a few of the adults felt it was necessary to constantly scream at the kids, trying to get their attention. It made it extremely difficult to sit on our own patio and enjoy a peaceful afternoon. It would have been nice if someone had intervened and asked them to keep it down.
Overall, I can highly recommend the Sandcastle Inn. We can't wait to return!
