“Nice Hotel in a Somewhat Seedy Beach Town”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

We drove down the coast from San Francisco (beautiful drive). When we picked Pismo Beach for a layover, we didn't know what to expect but we had high hopes. This area turned out to be a bit on the seedy side: trailer parks and cheap touristy stores and bars, etc. Despite all that, this Hilton Garden Inn is very clean and up to the standards set by the best Hilton Garden Inns. Our room is nice and big. Great place to relax after a day on the road. My wife was a bit disappointed that they don't have bathrobes, but you can't have everything.

Awesome bed! Great room, Nice grounds, clean hotel, friendly staff. Price of breakfast was not included, that is the only thing I wish would change about the Hilton brand.

A nice hotel with a friendly service. The pool was also really nice and a fun place to relax at. The breakfast was good and location was okay.

The staff here are so welcoming, friendly and helpful. The pool is heated. Location-wise, it's walking distance from a mall and a short drive into Pismo beach itself. The rooms are large and spotless. Really liked it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the second floor are at the pool level, handy for nipping back to your room without having...

Pros:
double sinks and comfy couch in standard room, quiet Panasonic exhaust fan in bathroom, residential style thermostat which shuts off AC fan when not cooling (compared to standard Inncomm thermostats which keep the fan on constantly), caring staff

Cons:

The beds are VERY firm, like laying on a rock.
