It is a decent hotel. It is a bit far from the beach, but then again the beach is not much to write home about. A friend suggested I check out Pismo, so I did.
The rooms are clean, and a lot more modern and comfortable than other Holiday Inn Express properties I have used. Shower was very good. Soaps good. Electrical outlets a bit hard to find. Complementary coffee and tea all day in the main office.
Why the three star rating? Well, I am not fond of the fact that the buildings being separate. The main office is separate from the two other buildings. Thankfully I had good weather. Next, the walls are a bit thin. There were some loud kids outside playing some games, and you could hear them quite well. The parking in some cases is on a hill that is higher that can look right into your room. No view in any direction.
Location is not too terrible, though. Right down the road is a very nice set of outlet stores - Tommy, Polo, Guess, Sketchers, Nike, etc. Highway entrance is right there...
I paid $82 on Hotwire (3* hotel in Pismo). It was as low as $77 before moving up bit by bit.
Would I stay here again? Probably not. I'd try to find another property in Pismo first before settling on this one, however then again, I'm not sure I'd be stopping in Pismo again anytime soon.
