Restless night

We stayed at Aloha Inn at Arroyo Grande this past weekend. The hotel is small but recently renovated. The room is clean, but noisy. The room we stayed in was next to US 101 Freeway so you can hear the cars all night long. In addition, the walls are not noise proof where you can hear next door neighbor talking, floor cracking when someone walk upstairs and really loud noise when people turn on their showers.

Clean hotel, comfy bed

Hotel was clean and had a comfy bed. My son enjoyed the pool. Breakfast pastries were hard. But overall, stay was nice and I will definitely come back.

Just OK

Pros: nice outdoor pool
Cons: Nothing close, Noisy, Poor breakfast, lots of workers were staying there
If you are driving by Pismo and need a quick place to stop, it works. Other than that, I would pass.

Nice & Clean Rooms

When I was looking for a hotle to stay in pismo i was looking for quality and quantity. Positives: 5 min away from beach, 2min away from shoppin outlets, very clean, bed was really soft, great t.v's, very roomy, front desk was friendly and helpful, breakfast was delicious but a bit early. Negatives: The freeway was right in the front of the hotel so it could get noisey when you went outside, the bathroom sink was not in the bathroom, finally hotle walls are somewhat thin so at times I was able to hear our neighbors next door. To sum it up I high suggest this hotel for the value. Its very chic and pretty. I had a great time there!

Great Motel for $$$

We had a great room with new granite bathroom. It was very clean, the facilities were excellent, and we would definitely stay there again!

Would never stay here again

The first room they gave us had 2 pieces of dirty laundry on the bed and two mostly empty pop bottles. So we asked for another room and THAT one looked as if the bed had been used since it was made - wrinkles on the bedspread as if someone was sitting on it. So we AGAIN asked to be moved and that room was barely acceptable. The bed was not very comfortable. To give them credit they were most accommodating on our requests to be moved.

The hotels location was okay, the room was smelly. The shower was disgusting we would not use it. The toilet was pathetic and the carpet was dirty with large stains. This hotel needs a complete remodel.
