My honey and I received a gift certificate for the Spyglass Inn Pismo Beach. Our first time and we will definately make it an annual trip now! The view from our Ocean View Suite, King size, w/ fireplace, and a patio was so fantastic! The room was very inviting, cozy, and clean. The best part was the patio where we...

We were attending a sport tournament in SLO, but wanted to stay by the ocean. The Spyglass is a quick 10-minute drive into downtown San Luis Obispo and offers much more eye candy. I loved the views, and easy access to walk along the bluffs and get to the beach. The room was very clean and comfortable. A bit noisy...

Room was less than average but dogs yapping in the room next door was just too much and we had only been in the room 5 mins. Moved rooms where we could still hear the dogs and now had a baby screaming as well. Unfortunately had booked through expedia so it had already been paid and we couldn't get a...

We visit the Pismo Beach area several times a year and have stayed at the Spyglass Inn on a number of occasions. There are many hotel choices in this area and we have returned to Spyglass because of their reasonable prices, pet-friendly policy and unbeatable views. We always stay in the ocean-front rooms -- I would not recommend staying in...

If you desire a room with a view without breaking the bank then the Spyglass Inn is just the ticket. Just sit on your patio or balcony in one of the ocean-facing rooms with a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening and enjoy the beautiful 180% expanse laid out before you. The...

Our favorite place on the Central Coast. The views from the ocean-facing rooms are pure joy. My husband and I sit on the little patio and soak in the charming gardens and broad expanse of sea beyond. In fact, we can sit inside -- even prop up on the bed -- and gaze to our hearts' delight. The rooms are...

Going through radiation becomes stressful...frightening, facing the unknown. As I passed the Inn every day for my treatments, having lunch at the Spyglass Restaurant sometimes, I decided to treat myself to three nights. The staff was friendly, the room comfy and cozy, and the view of the ocean was so beautiful and calming. I didn't realize how much those three...

We spent a couple days at the Spyglass Inn in Pismo Beach, Ca., during valentines week 2014. The room was very nice with a balcony that had a view of the ocean to die for. Sitting on the balcony, having a glass of wine with my sweet heart of 30 year, listening to sound of crashing waves under the light...

I would venture to say that this is one of the last affordable places to stay in Shell Beach with such an amazing view too! The rooms look like they have been recently updated and they all seem to come with a balcony or deck. Although we weren't promised an ocean view, we had one from our deck. What a...
