My husband and I spent a weekend at Pismo Beach and stayed at this hotel. We had a partial ocean view room and it turned out that we could see the ocean only from our balcony (not from inside the room) but we could always hear the soothing sound of the waves. The hotel is located right at the ocean and the pier is at a walking distance too. There's a nice complimentary breakfast, a swimming pool, and a jacuzzi, all of which we enjoyed greatly. You also get access to the tennis courts nearby when you stay here. It was a different experience to play tennis with the Pacific ocean and the setting sun as our backdrop :) I recommend!

This is my wife and I's 3rd trip to Pismo Beach and the second time for our anniversary trip. We had a 2nd floor King Ocean View room with balcony, and we loved the view. So far the best view of anywhere we have stayed although all our rooms had ocean views. The room was average size - we paid a fair price - although the billing was all messed up when we checked out. We were charged their rack weekend rate for the entire length of our stay, about $700 more overall than our original confirmation. - It took a while for the manager to fix it, but she was very gracious. The continental breakfast is comparable with other places we have stayed in the area, nothing special, but adequate. The bed was comfortable, the rooms are not soundproofed at all so don't plan on sleeping in (but we expect that at that price point), and everyone on the staff we interacted with especially the housekeepers were extremely nice and very helpful. They have a large pool compared to other hotels and it is kept nice and warm. The best part - they are next door to Ventana Grill:) A very pleasant stay.

You will have to pay extra for one of the full ocean front view rooms but it is worth it. Great staff, good breakfast and walking distance to Vantana Grill and Bar. Within a short cab ride of the Pismo Beach pier and many restaurants.

We booked this hotel for the direct ocean view from the room. We were given a room with a view of the swimming pool - you did see the ocean, but there were better rooms for this in 2 other alleys. If you're looking for a direct view of the ocean ask for a room in one of these alleys, not overlooking the pool.

Comfortable bed, spacious room, friendly staff.

We couldn't have picked a better hotel - the view was to die for....the rooms are spacious and clean. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Listening to the waves at night was so relaxing. The hotel is conveniently located for trips to the wineries in Paso Robles and our favorite restaurant in Cambria. Our friends came over from Las Vegas and stayed in one of the dog friendly rooms with their dog who loved sitting on the balcony watching for bunnies or anything that moved!! We sat on our balcony listening to our favorite music and watching the water. We could see all the way to the sand dunes in Grover Beach! This hotel has been here for many years but it is so well kept and comfortable. Being right on the water is a big plus.

Had a two night stay over the holiday weekend as part of our road trip. As it was a holiday we paid a premium price for a partial ocean view room. The room was great with a view over the pool and the ocean. As others have said the hotel benefits from an outdoor pool, hot tub and a fitness room. It also has free parking and is convenient for local attractions. The only downside we found was the breakfast room is very small for the number of people wanting to use it. We took ours up to our room and ate it on the balcony which was fine. One other thoughtful thing the hotel provides is chairs on your balcony which are higher than normal to let you see over the barrier to give an uninterrupted view. This was a nice touch.
