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.

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel. It will now be my go to hotel in Pismo Beach. I travel here with my disabled Mother. They are incredibly kind and helpful. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. Everything was exceptional.

We were extremely pleased with our room, had a wonderful view of the ocean. The only disappointment was the beach access being limited due to erosion, but the weather is out of our control. The staff was most helpful, and we were pleased with the breakfast on site.

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!

Our room was lovely, updated, the view was beautiful , that was a nice walking path , lovely breakfast , staff was friendly ,beautiful pool and Jacuzzi.

Excellent stay at the Inn. Great welcome from staff. Would ask for top floor next time as we heard footsteps of those on top frequently. Over all a great place to stay. We had dinner at the Ventana Grill on the recommendation of the Hotel desk and it was amazing also!

We loved our stay at the Inn at the Cove. The view from the room was magnificent. The room was very clean and comfortable with complimentary Fiji water! I was impressed that they had a free charging station for my electric car too. We will be back!

Very comfortable and great ocean views! However, the Inn does not have a restaurant, although it provides a variety of breakfast choices which are complimentary. During the week, there are no restaurants that are open beyond 9:00 p.m.

Searched for this hotel so we could have a good night sleep and wake up and walk the beach. Accommodations were excellent, however the beach access was closed due to renovations. Very disappointing. Wish it had been stated on the website before booking. Beautiful views though, and excellent room. Comfy, clean and luxurious.

Nice facility unless you have a room near the road. In that case too noisy. Ask at check in where the room is located. Other wise, staff and facility are nice. Location to area sites is ideal. Nice view of the ocean. Rooms were clean and comfortable.
