Stayed one night on our way to Death Valley. A beautiful location and a room right on top of the cliff took away our fatigue from a long drive. The room was spacious clean and very comfortable. The breakfast in the morning was even better and so was the service quality. We enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Room with a sea view though I guess all rooms have that option. Ground floor is good if you have luggage to carry.

This overnight stay was unplanned. We found this hotel while driving on the coast from L.A. to San Francisco.
The hotel is amazing. The rooms facing the ocean are very beautiful and calm. The view from the room is breathtaking, as well as from the terrace of the hotel.

The hotel offers free parking place, wifi and breakfast and that's everything we needed during our trip.
It seems that we had luck finding a free room without reservation, but what we got was very good and clean.

This was a night's stay planned from the UK as a stopover when travelling from LA to San Francisco - selected largely based on distance between the two places. On arrival we were pleasantly surprised to say the least. The room was huge, the bathroom equally so and the view out to the Pacific was as good as any you'd get at more expensive places along the shore.

Front desk helpful and we can't vouch for the breakfast as we left before it started but another place that will be visited again if (when) we do this journey again!

This hotel looks like an old beach motel from the outside but is totally modern on the inside. The rooms are large and comfortable and have spectacular ocean views. The beds are very comfortable. The outdoor pool is heated and the hot tub is very nice. The breakfast is nice for a continental. There are hard boiled eggs and yogurt and several other choices. The birds are a problem but what can they do? Make sure you check out the cinnamon bun place down the street because it is not to be missed.

Were we in for a surprise! Planned on vacationing longer in the mountains, but the severe heat wave changed our minds and we headed to the ocean. Had never stayed in Pismo Beach so just stopped in hoping a room was available. It was early, 4-ish, and we were in luck (later the parking lot was packed). Opted for an oceanfront room and we were not disappointed. The room was luxuriously appointed with tasteful colors, upscale bathroom with elegant hardware, unique shuttered sliding doors, and the most comfortable bed. Enjoyed the patio that evening and again in the morning taking in the scenery and observing the wildlife. The grounds were colorful and immaculate. We had a delicious meal at the Ventana Grill next door and wish we could've stayed longer than one night. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Think the view would've been better on the 2nd floor and a bit more private. We were on the ground floor.
