This was only our second trip to Cayucos, but what a difference from the first time - I suppose the RIGHT hotel can make all the difference!
We stayed in a very clean and spacious suite with a ocean view balcony. It was great watching the surfers during the day and hearing the waves at night while we slept. The kitchen was an unexpected delight; pancakes in the morning were a great way to start the day.
Pier View is walking distance to all the town's restaurants and bars so that was a charm. Plus, the gourmet coffee bar at the hotel delivered the BEST MOCHAS I have ever had to us with the hotel's room service.
Small, rustic towns like Cayucos usually have a lot of catching up to do with modern luxury but Pier View Suites really comes through as a shining beach-side boutique hotel!
The beds were better than my mattress at home, the balcony furniture was way more comfortable than normal outdoor chairs (or no patio furniture), and the whole suite was very, very clean!
When you think about how big the room was and the price we paid, it was a HUGE bang for your buck! A luxury suite that size in LA or NY would be about 3x the price!
Finally, the staff were amazingly considerate and involved. They really knew who we were by the end of our stay and were very honest with us about the pricing (they accidentally overcharged us at check-in but corrected it before we even noticed). The local owners even work on site so they provided us with all the best tips on where to eat and where to taste wine nearby.
We will be returning to Pier View Suites again and again!
