My wife and I spent a Thursday night (our first time here) in a premium ocean-side king suite. We received a friendly welcome and were given an informative intro to the layout of the complex. We relaxed in the evening and morning on our living room balcony to the sounds of the waves crashing beneath us and the occasional gull soaring by. The suite was clean, well-decorated, and spacious. The room temperature and bed were comfortable. Except for a brief period in the middle of the night when someone decided to fill their cooler with ice, we slept well.
We lucked into some "Chamber of Commerce" weather and enjoyed the complimentary continental breakfast, with ample selections, outside on the wrap-around porch of their breakfast room. The breakfast room staff were very attentive. We then staged a few photos on their life-size chess board and headed for the beach. Although we checked-out before noon, the hotel gave us permission to leave our car parked in their lot for the afternoon.
A path to the beach leads along the cliff, behind a few hotels, and down about 80 somewhat-awkwark, variable-height stair steps to the sand. Our destination was the Monarch Butterfly sanctuary, about 2 miles from our hotel. The pier at downtown Pismo Beach is about half way between to the two. The hotel was a good base for us.
Besides the ice machine noise, a minor inconvenience was the apparent lack of Wi-Fi in our room; to be fair, though, we didn't call the front desk for assistance. Also, the TP was a bit thin.
Overall... we look forward to returning for a longer stay and will recommend the Pismo Lighthouse Suites to our friends.
