The Inn at the Cove
Ranked #2 of 29 Hotels in Pismo Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 July 2007

My daughter and I stayed here. The accomodations were so-so, the carpets dirty, the pool small, the staff not too friendly, but the biggest issue was the highway noise. I had to turn on the air conditioner all night to drown out the sound of the semis and motorcycles just yards from my door. I stayed in room 402. Avoid it.

Clean, comfortable, loved the private beach, sliding glass door and patio is a nice touch, beds were surprisingly comfortable, bath n body works and in my favorite scents, this was a last minute decision and for the price and location was wonderful. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

My husband and I decided to get away for our birthdays, and what a treat. This hotel was great! We were kind of scared of Best Western since he had bad experiences, but this hotel was perfect, right along the cliffs. They have a very nice breakfast laid out in the morning and we were able to walk the grounds after breakfast. Breath-taking views and reasonable price. The room floorplan was spacious, with fridge, microwave, coffee, and much more. We even got Bath&Body Works amenities. Will definately come back!

Very nice motel with great view. Try to get a room that is not over the swimming pool, although that wasn't bad either. Large room, huge bathroom....CLEAN! All rooms are ocean front. Not a real easy access to the beach, however. When you stay there, be sure to make a reservation ahead of time to eat at McClintocks...we have been eating there for years and it is still great!!

We stayed here one night (late Feb, 07) and got a room with a really great view looking down over Pismo Beach. The room was large and clean with a decent size balcony, a refrigerator and wet bar. The bathroom was quite large and modern. The room was basic modern decor throughout. Everything worked just fine. The room and hotel seemed in good repair and things were clean throughout.

We had very little interaction with the staff, but check-in was quick and professional.

There is no direct access to the beach from the hotel since it sits on a bluff just north of town. Good restaurants can be found in town, which is a 10 minute walk or a 2 minute drive.

We got the room for something like $85 plus tax, which I consider to be good value for money on the California coast.

We have stayed at many beautiful hotels along the California coast, but had not stayed in Pismo Beach. My husband made reservations online for Shelter Cove for one night as we were on our way to San Diego from Antioch, Ca. We thoroughly enjoyed this hotel and feel it deserves 5 stars! The staff was friendly, the room was large & perfectly clean, the ocean view (all 180 degrees) was wonderful, and our balcony just the right size to fit 2 lounge chairs and table on so we could sit, sip a cocktail, and watch the beautiful sunset. The beautifully manicured grounds were wonderful to explore and if you're daring and don't mind going down (AND back up) a lot of steps, don't miss out on roaming the lovely beach below. My wonderful husband booked this hotel, again, for our 34th anniversary in April!

On our trip from L.A. to San Francisco this was the best place - lovely room, value for money, exceptional location! We loved it! One has to forget the breakfast, but that would be the usual complaint.
