Reviewed 31 October 2013

What a joke. They charged us a premium price for a run down, small, dated, ugly room.

The only saving grace was that' it was steps from the beach and the pier. This place was recommended by the Chamber of Commerce tourist office in town. Shame on them!

The breakfast was a complete joke. Coffee and toast! Yummy.

I read the reviews prior to arriving so I wasn't expecting much. We arrived a little early (1pm) and thought we would try our luck checking in. There was an older man who was rude and said "no try back around 2:30" without even looking in the computer or offering a smile. When we came back a nice young girl checked us in. Being two females traveling together we asked for a second floor room but was told they were all taken. Once we arrived to our room it appeared run down and tired. We reserved a suite and there was a sign in the kitchen that said "$100 cleaning fee for leaving dirty dishes" I'm pretty sure it does not cost $100 to wash a few dishes, makes me wonder if other guests half [--] clean them to avoid the fee... lucky for us we didn't end up using any. Our door didn't close property so we were unable to lock the second lock. The bottom lock and the dead bolt were our only options, the windows didn't look like they had any kind of locks on them either. As mentioned before being female travelers on the first floor I would like to feel a little more secure. The pool was closed, which from the other comments seems like it has been that way for quite some time. The continental breakfast was a joke. Banana, a mini muffin, and toast were the only options. Not to mention the sign that said "be mindful of other guests" which basically implies not to take more then 1 mini muffin...

Only plus side: Location, its only a block from the beach. Restaurants and a few bars all within walking distance.

Thank you for your review. We apologize that you could not check in early and the signs offended you. Guests check out at 11 a.m. and the housekeepers need time to clean the rooms so the check in time, like most hotels is at 3 p.m. (many hotels now have a 4:00 p.m. check in time) We did inspect the room and the windows do have locks. About the sign "$100" sign, the intent is to ask the customers to clean any dishes that the guests use. When housekeeping cleans the dishes and pots and pans, it delays other rooms being cleaned which could also delay other guests checking in on time. The breakfast sign is to kindly remind guests to not use the complimentary breakfast to stock up for a hike or a beach outing. Thank you and we hope you'll visit Pismo Beach again.

My husband and I stayed here the weekend of the Pismo Beach Clam Festival. The room was small but clean. Bed was VERY uncomfortable. Pretty noisy too as we were located on the alleyway. Seems like everyone who drove through there had really loud vehicles and the people with more than a few drinks walking past didn't think anyone could hear them unless they were yelling. ;-)

Other than the noise my only real complaint was that the hot water heater that feeds our room also supplies water for 4 other rooms, two of which have Jacuzzi tubs which were apparently used on Sunday morning. This left us without any hot water at all which was more than a little inconvenient. Even more frustrating was the lack of response from the front desk, aka not answering the phone, when I called to ask about it. I even thought I was being tricky and called the main number from my cell phone but still no answer. That was interesting to say the least. When my husband went to the office to get us some coffee he chatted with an older man and his wife about the hot water and the attitude was "Oh well". Not even an insincere apology or faking concern, just oh well.

Oh well, we probably won't stay there again. :-)

Me and my boyfriend decided to take a break from hot Bakersfield!
We choose this motel because it was close to the beach! The location is great :) the room we got had ocean view! It didn't have the greatest beach view! We had the room closest to the the road and close to where everyone walked to the beach! We didn't have much privacy and I didn't have the greatest night of sleep! It was so loud with people talking and cars making noise! It was a inpleasant sleep! I kept waking up throughout the night and my boyfriend didn't end up sleeping until 4am in the morning when we attempted to sleep at 10:30. The rooms were alright over all! Just plain! I wouldn't mind staying again ! I would just want a less noisy room!

Position was excellent walk to the beach but that's where it ends - the manager was not friendly at all would not speak, rooms were old and need work, bed sags badly, pool out of order, we were worried about safety as people across the street dodgy, breakfast a joke - don't bother
