“Great location, friendly staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 March 2012

I must admit, part of me doesn't want to give this place the great review it deserves, because we'll have to contend with more competition in getting a room! But if you like Pismo, you'll love their location, room views and even the free buffet breakfast (much more than stale muffins and cold coffee!) we've been there several times, and can't wait to return.

All four times I have been here have been wonderful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The continental breakfasts are very good in quality and very well stocked. There are good restaurants nearby which include Steamers, Del's Pizzeria, and Ventana Bar and Grille. These three have been consistently good each time I have gone. You can workout at the gym in the parking lot for free as a hotel guest.

Room Tip: The rooms are numbered from 1-30 on all three floors. If you get a room in the 1-20 range, you will...

From the outside the place needs paint job but the room is nice, clean and the view. When you pull open the curtain you will see this beautiful ocean view. As you open the sliding glass door you would hear the wave sound very soothing. The beach is right in front of your room but you have to walk down the stair to get to it. The continental breakfast is nice, fully stocked and a nice lady to make sure all items are replenished. You have to try the waffle, they use a high grade of waffle mix. I would recommend this hotel to my friends.

Room Tip: All the rooms are ocean front.

Retro, yes, and immaculately cared for. This is a sunset beach hotel with sweeping ocean views, a stairway to the sand, and wonderfully reminds me of why this is the Golden State. Casual beach perfection!

A friend of my wife recommended this place and boy was she right. Each room has an ocean view. You can walk down to the beach via a long strurdy stair case. They have a "real gym" available for us gym fanatics. There is a heated pool and two jacuzzis (no spell check). Rooms are awsome and staff is superb. I hate to give this secret up, but the value and over all experience was super. We will be returning again and again.

Room Tip: All rooms are good.
