Love that you can open your back door and walk out, sit and enjoy the views of the ocean. This is in an ocean view room. The firepits, sitting was all so relaxing. Meet people from all over the world. Staff was very helpful when we asked for dinner suggestions. I would have the card key on the door going to the common areas. Anyone could just walk up and go into rooms.

The property has a nice view of the beach. There are Fire pits are in the back only 2 to 3 fire pits though. So first come first serve. The breakfast is continental, Bread, muffin, oatmeal... no savory items well boiled eggs no bacon... The northside of the hotel can be noisy due to the playground of the other hotel next door. There are no AC in the room FYI I wish the front staff can be friendlier at least say HI when coming in or good morning.

The sunset viewing from garden area was the best on whole coast - everyone was relaxed and friendly - We had a "view" of a parking lot - in back and front - but were only there one night so ok, but if you stay longer -request room not on south side - still great breakfast - cute lobby - and great bluff overlooking ocean - staircase was easy to beach, but for the younger set.

Comfy and affordable

Great location on the beach in Pismo and still close to SLO. The room was very spacious and the beds and pillows were comfortable. All of the amenities were very nice. The breakfast included waffles, cereals, bagels, fruit, coffee, and a variety of juices. The staff we encountered were all friendly and welcoming. We would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful room, perfect location

Beautiful high ceilings, fireplace, lots of space, nicely appointed bathroom (love the lighting around the mirror!), three big windows and a view of the sea. Ideal location for walking on the enormous beach or strolling to dinner, shops, etc. We were in room 322 and were surprised that we couldn’t really hear the ocean even with the windows wide open. Must be because of the cliffs. (We heard the cars on the road and highway perfectly.) Better breakfast than expected. Would definitely return!!

This was a great location with stair case to beach

Pros: travelocity was the only place I looked
Cons: Condition of hotel (doors and amenities )
Location: It was wonderful to get to the beach for long walks and sunsets. There was fine dining all over within walking distant. It really was quite private .
It was a nice place but needed some repairs fire place didn't work, bathroom door lock was broken, and several other things needed work. It was advertised as renovated which was not true. But all and all it was comfortable and we were mostly please.
