          This is the perfect spot if you want to park your car and not have to move while you're at the beach. Rooms are very nice, clean and comfortable. Close to everything. Beach and boardwalk are steps away.

          The location is absolutely amazing. View of the ocean from the room. I could see it even from the bed. The room was ok and the staff was nice. The price is mainly for the view. Located close to all the Pismo restaurants and bars.
