Nice hotel, close to the beach 🏖

The hotel was very clean and convenient to the beach. The woman at the front desk was very unprofessional and my room was not ready until 4pm. Check in time was at 3pm. Other than that it was a perfect room and a great experience. :)

Motel is clean but the inside is old. No shampoo, no blow dryer, no iron, no closet and no drawers to put my stuff away. Cristina at the front desk is friendly when we checked in and the guy was very nice also when we checked out. Sorry I didn't get his name. I love the location of the motel very close to everywhere.

Great location, no else so great.

Only 1 motel stands between you & Pismo Beach. At the end of a very short block is the main street where the attractions & pier is. The motel location is great, but not so for everything else. We requested for 2 queen beds & got a king & double bed. You will need to take your own iron, shampoo, conditioner, shower cap & lotion. Towels were rough (no fabric softener used) & even their Kleenex tissue was rough. The room was very small. The room had the 2 beds, 1 night stand for each bed, a TV, a small refrigerator, a dresser & a small round table with 2 chairs. The TV and small refrigerator sat on the dresser. The TV only had a few cable channels. The bathroom was clean with updated towel bar, updated sink & a hair dryer. The bedroom needed new carpeting. The room had a tiny closet with 4 hangers, a hair dryer. They had benches outside the rooms which was nice, but needed to be repainted because the paint was chipping off. Upstairs there are about 6 tables with umbrellas for anyone to sit and enjoy the weather. I didn't see an ice or vending machines. We arrived 2 hours early & the staff was nice enough to check if our room was ready. We got there about 1:00 PM & were able to check-in early which is always a plus. In the office, they have free coffee available in the morning. I would only recommend this place to a person who isn't picky about where they sleep.

Should have trusted reviews...

Pros: The location is basically the only thing this motel has going for them.
Cons: The mattresses most definitely could be replaced. The heater could use a thermostat. The showerhead needs to be replaced.
Location: Beautiful beach just a couple minutes away (walking). Good restaurants and shops also walking distance.
Read reviews which were mostly bad but thought I'd give this place a shot anyway as I think a lot of people can sometimes have high expectations for a small amount of money. Last minute, I booked a stay in room #25 and wasn't expecting too much for the price, $99. The room we stayed in had 2 beds when we paid for one which was ok but there were weird plastic covers over the beds and a dirty towel randomly thrown on one of the beds. The linens were decent but one of the beds linens had stains. The beds were very uncomfortable. After pulling off the sheets from the mattress, you can tell the mattress was extremely old, probably a good few decades old. The bathroom was a decent size. The shower head needed to be replaced. The water pressure seemed to be ok but because of calcium build up, it created blockage from the showerhead spout so very little water spat out. The towels were decent. The blow-dryer didn't work. Thank goodness I brought my own. There was no A/C which I was aware of but there was a ceiling fan that worked good. At night it actually became very cold. I saw there was a heater and was happy about it but I could not find a thermostat anywhere to turn it on. I looked literally everywhere! It was a very cold and uncomfortable night for us. We did not get up for the coffee and muffins other reviewers mentioned. The best thing about this place is the location. It's very close to shops and the beach but I'll probably pay a bit more to stay somewhere else next time.

Nice enough for one night

Pros: The location to the beach and downtown Pismo area are really great.
Cons: The info needs to say pool not operable at this time. The info also needs to say continental breakfast or snack. Mini muffins hardly work.
Location: Very close to everything Pismo related!
The motel is okay. It is not advertised as truthfully as it should be though. The pool was not functioning and it appeared as though it hasn't in quite some time. Also, the breakfast advertised was coffee, juice, and mini muffins. It should read continental breakfast. The night before we stayed at a location (suites), similarly priced, that includes a full breakfast along with drink tickets and snacks for the pm. The previous site did not have an available room otherwise we would not have made the move. The good things about the room really are the location and view from the rooftop patio. You can literally walk around the corner to downtown Pismo. The beach is also just a stroll away. It should be noted that this motel management did not initially find our reservation although we knew it had processed as our bank was charged immediately after clicking the reserve button.

We really apologize. We've published on as many sites as we know that the pool is closed.

Better Then Expected

This inn is located very close to everything: beach, shops, restaurants, nightlife, EVERYTHING! We came to Pismo for my sister's wedding and her reception was at the Moose Lodge, which is practically next door so it was perfect!! After reading all the crappy reviews of this place on other sites, I wasn't expecting it to be great, but it really was! Parking was iffy but we always found a spot in their lot. Check in is strictly 3:00 so don't expect to get into your room before that! We arrived at 2:30 and had to wait so we took a walk into town, no biggie. We stayed during a peak weekend so it was pricey but we had a full kitchen, our own room, kids had their own room, awesome! Place was clean, staff was attentive, asking if we needed maid service, towels, etc. Not too sure what is going on with the pool, it is full of water but closed off and surrounded by construction equipment? I like that they have a quiet time starting at 10:00pm for everyone's enjoymet, but you can hear the bar down the street pretty well if your on the west side like we were, but it wasn't too bad. We would definitely stay here again!
