Ocean view description not ocean view

Overall, the hotel was good. It was clean, bed was comfortable, staff was friendly, and the location to Pismo State Beach was good. Only thing we weren’t happy about was that the description said ocean view. When I think ocean view, I think balcony, window, patio will be directly facing the ocean. Instead we saw another balcony & the pool area with what I would call, a partial ocean view.

Hotel is under major construction

Showed up to find that the hotel is under major renovations. The lobby is closed and check-in service is located is a makeshift hotel room that is used as thei "lobby". The pool is fenced off and shuttered as are many of the rooms. Breakfast is served in a room that was former the "sprinkler room" with toasters located next to a hotel vanity sink. The location is good and the peppery will be nice after renovations are compete but staying here in the present state is not advisable if you are looking for a decent place to stay. I complained that we were not told about the construction to Travelocity and I was offered $20. LOL. Our stay was only two days or I would have walked out. We arrived after midnight. Thanks for the crappy experience. Stay far and away until work is resolved.

Extremely Nice!

Pros: Views, outdoor fire pits, and very peaceful, relaxing atmosphere.
Cons: Not a thing.
Location: Shopping, restaurants, pier and beach walking.
This was the best hotel we have stayed in for a long time. Rooms were very clean. We got a room with a view, and WOW, what a view. Hotel is within walking distance of Pismo Beach Pier and shops/restaurants. Complimentary breakfast was very good. We even got a show while eating on the patio, of the gray whales feeding closely off shore. We got another show of the life guards jumping off the pier while training. (don't do this yourself, against the law). Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Great free parking. We will definitely stay here again.
