We used to stay here years ago, and returned recently for a mid-week, winter season, one-night stay. Not only did all those great memories come flooding back, but the whole place has been recently remodeled and upgraded.

The front desk staff was gracious enough to upgrade us to a "pier view room" for the price of a "pool view room". For a little over $100 we got a gorgeous ocean view, with the morning sun pouring in, and the pier in the distance.

We love the location of this hotel, because you can hear the crashing waves as you fall asleep. No beach access, but plenty of nice walking paths alongside the cliffs.

Included breakfast was great (not just high-carb, high-sugar offerings). We also ate dinner the night before at Ventana's, which is the adjoining restaurant, but were disappointed with both the service and food. It specializes in tequila, and since we were tea-totalling that night, didn't have the enhancement of the tequila buzz to offset the lesser-quality food and service. Oh well. We loved the hotel - what a value!

Room Tip: "Pier view" are actually ocean view, with eastern rising sun. "Ocean view" face...

My husband and I came here for our anniversary and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The view from our 2nd floor room is just breathtaking. Our room is beautiful with new furnishings as they had just finished remodeling most of their rooms. During our stay we we're treated with a gorgeous sunset! They have a complimentary breakfast next door at the Ventana Restaurant. They only allow a certain portion of the Restaurant for hotel guests to eat breakfast in so it got a little bit crowded when we got there. The view at the Restaurant is beautiful as well. I definitely would return here again.

Room Tip: Pick a room higher up. They have rooms next to the pool but I would imagine that would be a little...

The view can't be beat. Stayed here a handful of times in the past 10 years. Rooms in the 2012 visit have been updated. An easy 10-15 minute walk to downtown Pismo Beach and the pier. Ventana restaurant next door was convenient, with good food.

Room Tip: Get a second floor room for the view.

Wow, I was very impressed. I don't know when this hotel was originally built but what a beautiful location. Our room was recently remodeled and was very clean and modern. The plantation shutters over the sliding glass doors gave the room a very classy look. And where did you get those high top chairs for the patio? Loved those. And our room included a sunset view from the patio. The walk along the cliff to breakfast made up for the selection of breakfast items but it was enough to begin our next adventure.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the second floor on the north end of the hotel. Ours was 236.

This was a nice hotel for the price. Right on the cliff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and most rooms have an ocean view. The room was very clean, but the bed was a little lumpy. The chair with the ottoman was very uncomfortable, you couldn't really sit in it. Overall, a nice place to stay in the area.

The view is just breathtaking! You wake up and sleep with the ocean just in front of you.. Price was a little steep though..

Beds was comfy, place was clean, but rooms looked prettier and new on website.. = P

Breakfast variety was little, but it was yummy.. If you drove, your car was parked just in front of your room which was convenient.
