Beautiful views of the ocean and rocky coast. Excellent location. Rooms were well appointed and clean. Very professional staff. Great recommendations on restaurants and other local areas to visit. Close to Monarch Grove (butterflies) and less than one hour drive to Elephant Seals.

My husband and I loved our ocean view room. It was very romantic. The staff was excellent and took care of anything we asked for. We were very comfortable in our room and enjoyed the generous complimentary breakfast.

A extended weekend getaway and a very relaxing and romantic time off with my wife in Pismo Beach. The accommodations were first class and we enjoyed being in a great room overlooking the ocean shoreline and listening to the wave at night!
