Perfect stay for one night. Big rooms, very clean and comfortable. Close to a supermarket and many restaurants. Breakfast is included. Motel is close to the road, but it's not noisy. Very friendly staff. I really can recommend this location.

I've just been here for one night and I think is one of the best motel I've ever been. The room was very clean, they got everything(TV, fridge, towels, free wifi). The structure of the motel is nice, the location too and there is also breakfast included. It was a good experience

Our family has been staying in Pismo Beach for over 20 years, we have stayed at almost every motel there. The Ocean Palms is one of the best and most accommodating at a very reasonable price. The owner, Bob and his family go out of their way to make sure that you have whatever you need to make your stay...

This was a small motel by the 101. It looks like it had been updated within the last couple of years it was a nice room plenty of room along with a coffee maker, hair dryer, iron, fridge and microwave. The bed was my only complaint with the room as it was a little to flat and hard. The check...

We've stayed here many times as we drive through Pismo Beach about once a month. We always stay for just one night but the price is what keeps us coming back! We always feel like we get much more than we paid for here. Great service, awesome location, comfortable beds, clean rooms and again... The price can't be beat!

I checked in on a Saturday night and was told by the owner that he was expecting me on Friday. I had made the reservation with him several days earlier by phone. At first he was going to charge me for the Friday night, but then he realized the mistake was his and said not to worry and I checked...

We were greeted by the friendly proprietor "Bob" who made our request for a main floor room happen. The room is was clean with lots of room. We were surprised to find this at a very good price. A continental breakfast is included (also a nice surprise). Location is good to the beach and to the highway. Will be stopping...

Stayed here one night while driving the California Coast. The Hotel was very nice and affordable. The rooms were well appointed and clean. Check in was easy and parking was right out front of the the room. Waterfront is not far away and walk able. Good restaurants in the area
