We have been going to the Pismo area for years and have stayed all over from Cayucos to AG....The price of Beachfront hotels has been rising while the value sinking....NOT SO with the Spyglass.... great room, beachfront, comfortable, and fairly quiet. Restaurant/bar is average but its view that is why you're there anyways. Everything is nearby with a few places...

We enjoyed staying at the spyglass in. Make sure you reserve and ocean view room, otherwise I would not think it's worth staying here. Ocean views are absolutely beautiful and unobstructed. Friendly staff, clean and newly renovated rooms. Would come back again for the views alone!

Lovely hotel in great location between the beaches of Pismo and Avila. Gorgeous contemporary decor - big beds and new bathroom. Lovely walks along the cliff to neighbouring hotels with drinks terraces overlooking the sea and happy hour with fantastic sunsets. The beaches here are fantastic. Only downside: lugging cases up stairs to room

Got a room with a view, balcony chairs and table. Brought wine and snacks. Listened to waves, no bothersome outdoor lighting shining in to my room. We visited the fire pit and took a walk down the beach, swam in their pleasantly heated pool, no problem finding it, checking in or out, and although it was a splurge for us...

Awesome view from second floor ocean view room. They got a great restaurant on site, also with a spectacular view. Only complaint was my room didn't have a heater, no biggie though. Would definitely stay here again.

This is a review for a deluxe room with a balcony (not one of the ocean view rooms). The walls are paper thin! Unfortunately, the people next door were loud and obnoxious. As we first got to our room, we saw our two neighbors walk out of their room with a case of beer. No biggie. We had beer too,...

The only thing that this hotel has going for it is location. It's not terrible, but it's not awesome, either. I paid extra for an upper floor, but they didn't have any available. Nothing offered but a first-floor room. Very disappointed. Check-in was otherwise quick but uninformative. The room looked nice, but, except for the bed, the furniture was not...

My wife and I have been coming to Pismo for many years. We have never stayed at the Spyglass. We gave it a shot on a quick one night trip and we were happy we did. We were able to check in early.

Stopped for a night while on a road trip. Really enjoyed this property the staff was very friendly and able to help us plan our evening around town. We had an ocean view that was spectacular. Close highway proximity without any road noise! Cant wait to return.

On a trip with friends riding motorcycles. Staff is helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Close to the beach. Close to SLO and Pismo. I would reccommend skipping Pismo and going straight to San Luis Obispo.
