“Relaxation to the max”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

We officially agree this is one of our #1 fave hotels ever. It was great having the separate bedroom and kitchenette. It was adorable, the bed huge and so comfy. We had a balcony that opened right to the ocean and it's a great stroll to downtown along the beach. There's great activities on site, too, and we can't wait to bring our son back to enjoy it like we did! This is one of those jems, and we'll go back, promise. This place has earned its great reviews.

I stayed six nights the week before Christmas. I think it was probably a once in a lifetime treat. The winter rates were great, the weather fantastic, and the sunsets unbelievable. What I paid for the oceanfront room I saved in dinners by picking up a bowl of clam chowder or other delicious meal and enjoying it on my balcony as the sun set - no need for an expensive restaurant to enjoy the sunset view. After dinner I would curl up with my Kindle to enjoy a good read with the waves crashing in the background. The town was really dead except for Saturday night, so there wasn't much nightlife to enjoy. Watched the dolphins go by each morning about 9 AM.

Parking was free and convenient. There were plenty of places to visit and things to do, but the best was probably simply walking the beach. Breakfast was basic, with waffles, sweet rolls, toast and bagels, cereals, juices, milk, fruit , yogurt, etc. Would have loved some plain yogurt.

The room itself was spotless. The bed was very comfortable. Good selection of pillows. Furnishings were tasteful and fit the environment. Plenty of storage even for a family. Comfortable robes provided. Heat, refrigerator and microwave all worked well. Staff was very pleasant and helpful.

Although I could hear the footsteps above me and on the walkways, it was not a major problem - the views and the suite itself made up for it. Of course, the place was also not very busy at that time of year. There were some large families around, though, but I never heard much of them.

I really cannot express how much I enjoyed this part of my trip. In fact, my blood pressure was 20 points lower at the end of the week.

We stayed for 4 nights in the Lighthouse Suites in September 2013, using it as a stopping off point, as many people do, between San Francisco and LA.

We booked an Ocean Front suite, which was suburb. Spacious bedroom and lounge, 2 bathrooms, coffee maker, microwave and fridge. The balcony had room for a small table and 2 chairs and was in the sun for a large part of the day. The rooms had character with various lighthouse themed accessories. The ocean view was fantastic; on 2 of the mornings, there were hundreds of seabirds feeding from the ocean - if you have some compact binoculars, take them with you.

The self service breakfast was okay but not the best feature of the hotel. The pool and hot tub would occasionally get busy but we always found a good spot for sun lounging. I would describe Pismo as a *walking" rather than "sunbathing" beach. You can walk into town via the beach in the early evening, and either walk or get a cab back later when its dark. The roads (not the Freeway) have pavements and are well lit for most of the walk back. Avila Beach is a short drive away and a good location if you fancy a few hours of beach sunbathing - you can rent beach chairs and parasols from the local shops.

We liked this central coast region - it has a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. The Lighthouse Suites is a great place to say, and the Ocean Front Suites provide superb accommodation at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Book an ocean front suite if you can - and take your binoculars.

We stayed here for one night to break up a drive from LA to San Francisco. Room was relatively cheap and would suit a family due to the second bedroom. We had a lot of noise from adjoining rooms as they were loud and walls are thin, as well as people upstairs stomping around. Probably best to stay top floor here. Parking is free and breakfast was good, Cesar in the breakfast room was friendly and helpful. Would stay again, but in a better room.

We stayed overnight. We had a two bedroom, two bathroom partial ocean view room for our family of five. The room was great, very big, nice and clean, great views. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Very reasonable rate that included breakfast, internet and parking. Would definitely stay again.

Can't say anything bad about our one night stay in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom suite. So convenient & comfortable. Beautiful sunset atop the cliffs, great pool/hot tube overlooking ocean w windscreen. Great value, would definitely return.

Our stay at Pismo Lighthouse Suites celebrating our wedding anniversary was wonderful.
From the views of the balcony overlooking the ocean to the cleanliness of the room to the greeting we received upon our arrival, all was outstanding.
It was our first time staying there, and will for sure stay again.
