“Best Food Ever!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

The Restaurant was amazing best food we have ever had at any restaurant. Thanks Zach(the head chef) Also the facilities were really clean and well taken care of. You can just tell that the staff really does want you to have the best time of your life. You really really should stay at the Hilton Garden Inn if you are ever in Pismo Beach California.

Stopped here for one night the third week of April, without an advance reservation. The front desk staff were friendly, the property itself was lovely with all the usual bells and whistles. The hotel is built on a hillside about 2 miles from Pismo Beach with the lobby at the parking level and the room floors generally down from there. I'm not sure if some rooms have a view of Pismo Beach in the distance, but ours didn't. We were in a double Queen room overlooking the parking lot. That said, the room was very nicely furnished, large, comfortable and clean. We thought it was one of the nicer HGI's we have stayed at during our 5 week holiday. The only downside was the food. There was a HHonors point award for eating on property, so we decided to give it a try. I wish we hadn't, the server was nice but the food was just average. The next morning we asked the nice young gentleman at reception for a local place to eat and he recommended Zorro's Café & Cantina. That was excellent, thank you!

Dear to_wherenext,

Thank you very much for your review and for choosing the Hilton Garden Inn Pismo Beach for your stay during your holiday. I am pleased that you enjoyed your overall experience with our property. Thank you for pointing out our large, well-appointed rooms. We do have rooms that overlook the Pismo Beach area and we invite you back to sample one of these! I do apologize that your experience with our restaurant was not up to standards. I will be sure to address this with the proper department head. However, I am pleased that one of our staff was able to give a good recommendation of a local eatery. Zorro's is excellent! Thank you again for your review and we hope to see you soon!

Thank you,

We stayed here just for one night over our road trip from LA to San Fran. Really nice facilities and rooms, and great for a quick stopover (a bit pricey). Pismo Beach itself is really lovely, definitely recommend staying in the area.

Although the town is known as Pismo Beach, don't think this hotel is near the beach! A nice hotel, with good service, but rather hilly location. The bar area can be rather crowded when coach parties are in.

Dear ruthpi,

Thank you for your review and for choosing the Hilton Garden Inn Pismo Beach. While we are not located directly on the beach, we are conveniently located just across the way from popular restaurants and outlets and are only a quick drive away from the downtown beach area. I am pleased that you enjoyed our facilities. We pride ourselves on delivering exceptional service and I'm humbled that our staff was able to do just that. At times we do get busy in our restaurant and bar area, but our staff is well-trained to efficiently cater to all our guests. Thank you again and we hope to have the opportunity to accommodate you in the future.

The Hilton Garden Inn in Pismo Beach is a nice place to chill if you're driving the 101 from the Bay Area to LA (or vice-versa) and want to break up the trip. That's what we did after a long day of exploring the Big Sur country on our way home to LALAland.

I write this as a UK bloke that is usually a holiday Inn kinda guy but as we wanted to be near pismo beach area so we picked this place... on the back of the Hilton name basically. A great check-in to a room with an ace king bed..a warm room.. spotless with toiletries that were worth taking away!

There was free parking and a novel popcorn machine which went down well ;)

The staff/room/everything was great.. can't be faulted.. would return in a shot.

Room Tip: Just stay here :)

Nice accommodations. We enjoyed our stay here. It is very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Our room was was on the lower level and was surrounded by beautiful gardens. We sat on our secluded patio with a bottle of wine in the evening. It was great.
