Always a great place to relax and unwind. Private, convenient, quiet. Complimentary breakfast was great. Staff is courteous and friendly. Ocean views are unobstructed with restful balcony times enjoying the distant city shore line lights and sea life from the cliffs. Definitely our favorite place to stay.

It was low season (late Nov.) and with few other guests, we felt we owned the place! Great service at the front desk, and a clean, comfortable room with a great view. Property was attractive. Pool was heated which was much appreciated with air temps in the 60's. As a bonus, there's a nice park that's a 5 minute walk... More

We lucky to find this gem of a hotel in Pismo Beach while traveling down from Seattle. A beautiful, recently renovated place with balcony rooms right on the cliffs to enjoy an evening glass of wine while watching the sunset. Rooms are very clean and spacious, the staff friendly and helpful, and really wish we had more than 3 days... More

View from room was great...could see sea otters in the ocean. Have stayed here before and always find it comfortable, clean, with good service. There are several casual restaurants within walking distance.

Great location! Beautiful scenery! Walking distance to many quaint restaurants. Love that they offered a hot chocolate bar. It was a great way to end the night after taking a evening walk. The continental breakfast was amazing! They had the best waffles and eggs! Couldn't of got a better breakfast at any restaurant.

Several great touches like a slinky in the room and binoculars for guest use in each room. We met three families there and all were completely satisfied with the hotel and amenities. Close to many great restaurants and wine tasting rooms.

Rooms are big and views are fantastic,would get the excellent review if beach access and gazebo are available but were being refurbished when we were there. Close to the pier, shopping and restaurants.
