Hilton Garden Inn Pismo Beach

Reviewed 28 November 2012 via mobile

We spent three nights over the Thanksgiving weekend. Our room was spotless and the beds were super comfortable. We had the breakfast buffet each morning and were very happy with the food, service and reasonable price. Check in and checkout were fast and easy and everyone at the hotel went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

This property was formerly the Mission Inn and became a Hilton Garden Inn about a year and a half ago. There have been some renovations, but the layout remains essentially the same. Built into a hill, the lodging offers rooms on four floors with an elevator for access. The hotel is right off Highway 101 (4th Street exit going north), but we never heard traffic noise in the lobby or in our room.

We stayed for three nights during the long Thanksgiving weekend and had reserved a standard room with a king bed. Our huge corner room proved to be extremely clean with a large, flat-screen TV that had lots of channels, a refrigerator and a microwave. The comfortable bed allowed us to get a good night's sleep.Though we overlooked the parking lot, we could also see the ocean in the distance. I peeped into some other standard rooms during our stay and they were considerably smaller than the one we had.

Free popcorn and delicious cookies are available in the lobby. Folks at the reception desk were always friendly and helpful. There is a small fitness center and a large heated outside pool.

Unlike the Mission Inn, however, the Hilton Garden Inn did not serve a free breakfast. Instead, a hot buffet was available that cost $12.95 for adults and $7.95 for children. We eat very little for breakfast so we went out each morning to look for food. There is a Starbucks across Highway 101 as well as a Denny's and a Coco's. In Pismo Beach itself, there are several places that serve breakfast at a reasonable price. For those who like to shop, there is also a Premium Outlets mall across Highway 101.

If you want to spend time at the beach itself, it is 1.7 miles -- a quick drive -- from the hotel to the pier. This, of course, is not as convenient as staying at a beachside accommodation.

We had left Anaheim and were driving up the coast when it got dark and because we didn't want to miss anything we pulled into the Hilton. We have stayed in many Hilton's in the past and this one did not disappoint. Chad at the front desk was very helpful and gave us a gorgeous room. We ordered room service was tasty hot and arrived quickly. No complaints at all.

Room Tip: We had a lovely room looking over the pool

This was a very nice room . The problem.is that the heater would get stuck on or the.a/c would.stay on. After the ac was turned off the room got to
78 degrees. We opened the window and turned on the fan but the fan made it hotter.on a nicer note they had complimentary cookies that were fabulous and free popcorn

Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I was happy to hear how much you liked your room and the little extras we do to make our guests happy. I was sorry to hear that you had a problem with the thermostat. It is our goal to make sure that our guests are totally satisfied. Housekeeping sets the thermostats in each room at 71 degrees during this time of the year to make sure the room is comfortable for our arriving guests. The guest can adjust the thermostat upon arrival.

Stayed here one night while on route from San Fran to Los Angeles. This is a nice little hotel. Chad on reception was very friendly and check in was efficient and completed within a minute or two.

Rooms are an excellent size and comfortable. The only strange thing is there was only a net curtain on the window, no blinds or curtains which could be closed! OK I guess if you like to wake up to natural light but didn't pose too much of a problem.

The restaurant in the hotel was very reasonably priced and had a good variety on the menu. The dessert I ordered wasn't available so the waitress brought me an alternative at no charge which was a nice touch. As a Hilton Gold cardholder I receive a free cooked breakfast which was tasty and extremely good value for $12.95 had I been paying.

Hotel also had free popcorn and other nibbles in reception for you to help yourself too. Pool, spa pool and well equipped fitness room are also available.

Stayed one night. Excellent check in staff, very helpful regarding directions and dinner recommendations. Rooms very clean and quiet location. Although we were on freeway side we did not notice traffic noise. Good size rooms and comfortable.
