We were on our way home to the Central Valley during the storm when two freeways were shut down and traffic was turned back. At about 12:00 p.m., I found the Inn at the Cove and made the reservation on Trip Advisor for that night (a friday night) we turned around and arrived at about 2:00 p.m. Thankfully when we...

You think of sand dunes when you think of Pismo Beach. Howeve this place sits above the cliffs with a great view of the ocean. We booked an upper level room. This is much better view and makes entering the unit easy. (you have to go down stairs to get to the lower level.) Large, comfortable room with a patio...

Was nice. Could have been better if not raining the 2 days we were there and windy. Wasn't able to do everything we wanted, due to weather. Will stay again when weather is better. Had a beautiful view of Ocean from our room. Quiet. Bed wasn't as comfortable as I had hoped, but in all was a good stay.

The hotel staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The location is spectacular. We couldn't have asked for a better view. We chose a larger King room on the upper level, which was well worth the extra cost. There was a balcony overlooking the ocean and we could even see the ocean from our bed, which was very comfy. We found...

Every room is oceanfront with spectacular views. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Rooms are new, very clean and welcome basket was perfect. It's our number one choice in SLO, Avila, Pismo area. Love to sit on the balcony and watch the waves and sunsets. Pets are welcome too.

Great place for a romantic weekend getaway. The view from the room was extremely beautiful. We heard ocean wave crashing when you opened the door, but when the door was closed it was very peaceful. Recommended second floor so that you will not hear footsteps

I can't say enough wonderful things about Inn At The Cove. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was cheerful and pleasant to deal with. There were double swing chairs between the buildings. A walkway along the bluff provides easy access to nearby restaurants and childrens play park. All these make for a marvelous play to stay, but...
