Best beach hotel in Pismo Beach downtown

Posted Oct 19, 2017
Pros: Great price. Large staff. Close to the beach.
Cons: Wood bed frames --- kept on hitting my shins and ankles on the bed frames ... ouch!
Location: Convenience of being at the beach and next to downtown restaurants. Eat at Mo's for lunch. Grab an old cinnamon roll for breakfast.
Excellent hotel on beach. Lots a thought put into the design of the hotel. Third floor public balcony with gas-fire pit and comfortable couches and glass protecting you from the breeze. We actually saw the WHALES swimming in the ocean from there. Nice touch with chocolate chip cookies, oranges and applies at the front desk. Great collection of tolietries - bath wash, lotion, and shampoo -- smelled great. Huge Flat screen TV.

better than expected

Posted Oct 15, 2017
Pros: everything was just great
Cons: nothing
Location: perfect location to the beach, very nice outside patio, with firepit...wish we could have had more time to enjoy.
rooms very nicely appointed, and clean, the first night we backed up to the vending machines, they were very noisy, we asked if we could change rooms, and were accomodated... very pleasant experience...would definitely stay there again, great location...

Very nice remodel

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Pros: Bathroom design
Cons: At least one free bottle of water would be nice
Location: Quintisential California beach town set on a great beach area. The pier is under renovation; I’m not sure when that is expected to complete.
We stayed 3 nights over a weekend and found the hotel very comfortable and the renovation work done well. There is construction next door, planned to last until 2018, but with the sliding door closed there was very little noise even though our room faced the construction sight. The included breakfast was satisfactory, and has more selection than it might appear, so be sure to look carefully in the two small refrigerators.

Nicely remodelled hotel right on the beach

Posted Oct 4, 2017
Pros: The hotel is right on the beach.
Cons: The pillows were a bit uncomfortable as the pillows were quite high and not necessarily that soft. Softer pillows would be better.
Location: Right on the beach.
Nicely remodelled hotel right on Pismo Beach. Great location close to the shops and cafes. Pillows are a bit uncomfortable.

Thanks so much Nadia for being our guest. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us overall. I am sorry that you didn't care for our pillows; this is an item that is very personal and we try very hard to accommodate all comfort levels with a combination of fiber fill and feather pillows on each bed. We would love to have you join us again on your next visit to Pismo Beach. Thanks again. Kind regards, Roger Wightman General Manager

The alarm clock was unsettable. The young lady at the front desk was terrific.
