This is not the Four Seasons. This isn't even a Marriott! With that in mind, Premier Inn is an excellent value choice for the Pismo Beach/Arroyo Grande area. Just compare their rates to any of the nearby hotels and you'll see what I mean. So what do you get for your money? The basics. A clean room and a pretty quiet stay -- I've hardly ever had noise problems and I've stayed at this location several times a year for a decade now. You get free coffee and store-bought sweet rolls in the morning, should you want them. You get a swimming pool which looks nice and clean (but which I've never tried out). And... there's a small fridge in the room! Nice touch.
What don't you get? You don't get an ocean view or a beachfront room. You don't get free phone calls or high speed internet connections. No hair dryers in the room (if I recall correctly). No on-property restaurant, though there are plenty just down the hill, along highway 101.
Do I have any real complaints? Well, if you're a non-smoker, make sure that you PHONE to make your reservation and ask specifically for a non-smoking room. Their smoking rooms smell like ashtrays, and their online reservation system will not guarantee you a room that matches your smoking preference! Also, even if their online reservations system says they're booked up, call and check -- often, there really is still a room available.
During the summer, they fill up pretty far in advance, especially when an event like a car show comes to town, so plan ahead.
Don't expect luxury, just expect a basic, clean place to stay -- one that is cleaner and quieter than some of the more expensive hotels in the area!
