“Great hotel for families”
Reviewed 26 August 2010

My family of five stayed here for two nights in the second half of July. We had a two bedroom suite with 1 king bed for my wife and I, and 2 double beds for the three children (youngest kids sharing).

I had done a lot of web research in advance of booking, and I was entirely pleased with my choice. The Pismo Lighthouse Suites is truly a great spot for families to stay. The accommodation was roomy, clean and nicely decorated in a modern nautical theme. All the courtyard recreational options of the outdoor swimming pool, miniature golf, badminton, etc. kept my children in a state of bliss in between our area excursions. And having just stayed at the luxury Mark Hopkins Intercontinental in San Francisco a few evenings earlier, it was enlightening to hear my 9 year old son declaring the Pismo Lighthouse Suites to be "the best hotel ever".

The only critical comment I have concerns the smallish breakfast area. While the breakfast itself was entirely adequate, the buffet line and seating space was rather cramped during the morning rush hour. Beyond that minor negative, everything else is a thumbs-up.

Great hotel for the price - we had a 2 bed 2 bath suite - really nicely decorated and spotless. The hotel was very family friendly and in a beautiful part of pismo. Can't wait to go back.

I stayed here for my birthday with a couple of my girl friends and it was wonderful!! The room was beautiful and clean. There was even a card wishing me a happy birthday from the staff!! I had a beautiful view of the ocean and was able to watch the sunset on the balcony. The breakfast in the morning was very nice. It was included in the room and there were just simple breakfast items (cereal, yogurt, waffles, hard boiled eggs) but they covered almost all of the simple things. They even had a pretty good assortment of teas as I love to have tea first thing in the morning. I must say I work at a 4 star resort in Monterey and I have recommend this location to people headed to the Pismo area. The front desk staff is pleasant and very knowledgeable. Feel free to ask about the area and they can definitely help you out!!

The beach theme of the hotel is very cute and welcoming. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a variety of activities for the whole family, ping pong, chess and mini golf. It was fun to look out our window in the morning and see all the families (mostly dads and kids) using the facilities. The breakfast area is a little small, but they more than provided a varied assortment of things to eat. There were several large family groups staying at the hotel, which I think this hotel is perfect for. The only draw back, which is common for this area is its proximity to highway 1. It's a little noisy, but if you keep the windows closed at night it shouldn't be a problem for sleeping. Access to the beach is a little trek as well, if you are older, or don't navigate stairs well, and want to just walk out to the beach, this hotel would not be for you.

This hotel specializes in family stays and I am reviewing it as such. If you are looking for a romantic stay for two, find somewhere with fewer children (i.e., the Sandcastle Inn). My girlfriend, her 16 yo daughter, and I stayed in one of the oceanside suites over a 4 day weekend in August.

Pros:
the suite is huge
the ocean view from the living room is awesome
cool ocean breezes
property is kept clean, inside and out
comfortable
decent breakfast

Cons:
limited TV channel lineup
internet was down 3 out of 4 days
amenities were nice, but less than luxurious
heat. but no AC (not needed for our stay)
the bedroom faces the noisy parking lot
stoner neighbors smoking pot
