Verified TripAdvisor® Reviews

This place rocks!

The location cannot be beat! You can walk on the silky sand for miles and it starts a minute from your door, that close! Walk down to all the happening areas: restaurants, pier, bars, ice cream, all within minutes! The staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable. Couldn't ask for more.

best hotel on pismo beach

This hotel has the best ocean view, best rooms, and best service on Pismo Beach. We had an ocean view suite, which was spectacular. The remodeling of the bathroom was especially nice, with a walk-in shower and modern lighting.

best place ever

Looked at the hotels and decided to go for this little gem. We were not let down, fab room overlooking the beach with a little patio, staff were lovely, free car parking, spotless newly renovated room. Right in the middle of town so walked everywhere. Simply could not fault. Happy campers and we will be back soon. Thank you so much for a perfect weekend.
