Ocean Breeze Inn
Ranked #25 of 29 Hotels in Pismo Beach
Reviewed 2 September 2013

Bad customer service! Toilet clogged in middle of night. No one answers phone in office. People partying on deck in front of 3 hotel rooms until 3:30 am!! Again, no help from front desk. Pool closed. Bathroom sink didn't drain. Mold growing on faucet handle. Very little parking for amount of guest rooms. Had to park on street most of the time. Will NEVER go there again!

Room Tip: Don't stay here!

We apologize for your experience. We do ask guests to be quiet after 10 p.m. and the management does ask guests that are noisy to quiet down after 10 p.m.. We also state in our policies that we encourage guests who do not wish to be quiet after 10 p.m. stay somewhere else. Thank you and we hope you visit Pismo again.

I had the unpleasant experience of staying at this Inn. I have photos to prove low quality blankets, grime and grease on the overhead fans, mold in the toilet and blood stain on the sheet. When I complained to the female manager on duty who had no name tag about my issues she was more interested in just getting me to leave than to hear what I wanted to say about the poor accommodation's. Since I had arrived late to the area and did not know my way around Pismo Beach I expected at minimum to have a clean room for the price I was paying, $133.00 for a single queen bed for the night. I would have expected at least an apology that did not seemed forced, her only alternatives were to say housekeeping is busy and they cant keep up or that if I was leaving that she could take the key so I didn't have to go to the office.
I will make sure that whoever I know is going to the area will never stay there. Again this is not an idle complaint....I HAVE PHOTOS to prove what I encountered at this INN.

Room Tip: there are no good rooms since the manager indicated housekeeping is too busy.

Thank you for your review and we apologize for your experience. Our linens are washed using industry standard washing detergents. After your review, we examined the "blood stains" and appear to be rust spots. We're taking steps to eliminate the rust spots. We've also educated housekeeping about keeping the fans clean. Thank you.

This is a very decent hotel for the price. But the most valuable asset is it's location. A block from the beach, shopping and restaurants. The rooms are a little small but clean and it seems they have been repainted and new furniture has been added. Overall I will be going back here again.

This place is not only a waste of money but it also needs to update its amenities!! The pool is probably heated but you can't swim since it is closed. They never mentioned it on the travel site. The clerk didn't have clue about anything in the hotel or the area. She admitted not being from the area. In addition, there was no pet policy but saw a few people walking into their room with small dogs. Everything is old in this hotel, DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! The only upside to this place is the location!!

Thank you for your review. Regarding the pool, we have notified many of the travel sites that the pool is closed. We apologize for the clerk not being able to guide you with questions regarding the local area and we'll provide additional training. We DO NOT ALLOW PETS and the management does try to watch for customers sneaking pets into their rooms. We're glad you visited PIsmo and hope you'll continue to visit the area.

this place is so trashy. pillows and bed sheets are never washed (by smell of old mans balls). the shower is messed up! goes from steaming hot to freezing cold. there's drunk people always hanging around smokin out the whole place and the manager doesn't even care. I'm pretty sure the lotion, shampoo, and conditioner is 5 years old (by smell). the carpet smells like old beef jerky. this place is just an absolute embarrassment and reck! don't waste your time or money on these idiots.

We apologize that your experience is not what thousands of our guests experience each year. The bedding is washed using proper cleaning chemicals. The management does inform guests about quiet hours after 10 p.m. and non-smoking policy. The lotion, shampoo and conditioner are replaced when guests check out. The carpets are regularly washed and odor eliminating machine is regularly used. Thank You.

I spent this last weekend at the Ocean Breeze Inn and had a great experience! I have no complaints about this hotel. It was VERY VERY CLEAN:) I was impressed, and the staff and management was very helpful and hospitable:) The managers both were very on top of taking care of their guests. It is in a great location in reference to the beach/pier and also it's right in the downtown but quiet enough to be peaceful! I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a clean, reasonable, relaxing environment. You can tell the people working there really put work into their jobs and care about their guests and the hotel. Loved it!!
