Overall great experience! Great spot just outside all of the super busy areas. Bed was very uncomfortable honestly it was the most uncomfortable thing we have ever slept on (and I've slept on concrete), but everything else was great. I would go back just don't spend too much time in that thing they call a bed!!! 😀

While this is one of the more pricier hotels in Pismo, we really enjoyed our stay here. The rooms are well appointed with very comfy beds, nice patios, microwave, fridge, coffee maker, robes and Fiji water. Lots of nice touches like binoculars in the room, a glass of wine when you arrive, good selection of breakfast items and intimate pool...

What a lively property with outstanding staff. You could tell the people who work here do so because they enjoy it. Great atmosphere right when you checked in. Highly recommend this property for all of the obvious reasons, view & location, but for some not so obvious.

Enjoyed everything about the stay. The front desk and breakfast/dining area staff were accommodating and the rooms were clean and spacious. One of the most relaxing and enjoyable time with the family.

This place is a little jewel nestled in the cove. Rooms are amazing and the staff were top notch. We will certainly keep this place in mind should we decide to do another impromptu trip. We highly recommend!

I will not be returning to this hotel ever again. There is construction going on with out any warning. The room was small and did not give the front ocean view as expected. The location is not the greatest

Was extremely disappointed to learn that there was zero access to The Cove. This is what we looked forward to the most in our stay. Received a phone call day before arriving that the city was redoing stairs to Cove. My guess is, Inn at The Cove would have had long prior knowledge of this happening and Should have allotted...

Beautiful ocean views. Love listening to the sound of the ocean. Spectacular ocean sunsets from balcony even better with a glass of wine. Wonderful breakfast included. The rooms are very comfortable. There are a lot of restaurants near the hotel.

If you want a perfect spot hanging over the Pismo Beach ocean this is it. Well maintained welcoming property. Breakfast included in rates. Convenient to Pismo Beach restaurants. Staff very interested in making guests comfortable.

Enjoyed my recent stay here. Very nice rooms - clean, spacious, and up to date decor. Not the usual shabby beach hotel at all. The location on a cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean is unbeatable. The price includes an extensive breakfast in a spacious room looking out towards the ocean. Friendly staff as well.
