Oxford Suites Pismo Beach
Ranked #11 of 29 Hotels in Pismo Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 14 June 2011

This was our second trip to Pismo Beach and the second time we stayed at Oxford Suites. I really like this place because it offers nice, spacious rooms and resort-type amenities at a great price. To find a two-room suite at a hotel with full breakfast and a nightly cocktail hour for around $100 is to hit a jackpot. That's exactly what we found, plus a pool and jacuzzi to boot.

The rooms here are nice. Each room is the same with a living area that includes a corner sofa, table and chairs and a large console with flat-screen television, sink and refrigerator. The living area is comfy and the sofa converts into a bed. Our bedroom had a flat-screen tv, sink, closet and a king bed. The bedroom was quite comfortable and spacious. The bathroom had a tub with shower.

This hotel is very family-friendly. It's two floors are spread out over several landscaped acres. The adobe-style outer decor is nice. Check-in is smooth and efficient. There is a small snack shop located behind the front desk. The lobby has several over-sized comfortable chairs for relaxing, and the connected lounge hosts the nightly social hour.

The Oxford Suites daily breakfast is above-average. From hot entrees like scrambled eggs, sausage and pancakes, to waffles, toast and bagels, to fresh fruit, cereals, and coffee and juices, the hotel offers a great selection to choose from. The breakfast room is rather small, and gets very crowded and chaotic. You may think for a moment that these guests have never eaten a meal in their lives. After you endure the feeding frenzy inside, you might want to take your food to one of the several outdoor tables, or better yet, to your room for a quiet meal.

The pool area is nice, with a swimming pool, wading pool for the kids, and a jacuzzi. The pool opens a bit later in the mornings than I would prefer, and often fills up with families for most of the day. If they opened the pool earlier, more people would be able to enjoy it without all the kids.

Oxford Suites is located next to Highway 101. It's not super close to the beach, but all of the Pismo, SLO and other sites are a short to moderate drive away. We have visited Hearst Castle (1 hr), Morrow Bay (30mins), Solvang (45mins) Avila Beach (20mins) and San Louis Obispo (15mins), all from this hotel.

Whether it's overnight, or for a few days, you will enjoy the Oxford Suites in Pismo Beach. It's a very nice hotel at a great value.

I have been staying at this location for years and just realized I've never reviewed it. Oxford Suites has the best value in the Central Coast just minutes away by car to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. Nothing fancy but it offers comfortable and large rooms (you can separate the sitting area from the bedroom with a door), with both rooms having its own TV, an evening reception with some finger foods and 2 drinks (wine, beer, soft drink) per person and a generous hot breakfast (usually pancakes, eggs, sausage) as well as cereal, bagels, English muffins in the morning that you can enjoy poolside if you wish. They have redecorated the rooms about 3-4 years ago and now have much warmer colors than when I originally found this pace.

I don't understand the complaints about this hotel. This hotel gives you the most bang for the buck by far. Nowhere I've stayed comes close. For around $100 a night you get a buffet breakfast with great french toast and sausage amongst other quality items, you get a large divided room with two flat screen tv's, and a kind of happy hour where they offer you a couple of free drinks. They also offer you a nice swimming pool, a microwave and fridge in your room, a DVD player and free wireless internet access. If anyone can think of a better deal then please let me know. I wish they had more hotels in other parts of the country. Only small complaint is that the beds are only decent and that they are not on the beach. But those don't even count when you look at what you get for the price. I love this place and will stay here anytime I visit Pismo Beach.

I check in @around past 3 pm on a Friday, was told room was not ready and would have to wait. I told them I'm going to the outlet mall and they can contact me when the room was ready. I really want to get in the room and take a nap after 3 hours of driving. It was past 4 pm and stil no call, I went back to the front desk and was told to wait, I said I'm am tired and need a room now and another wait is unacceptable, they finally gave me a room,
Other than this incident, its a great place, hot breakfast included and 2 free drinks per nite.

On first sight I was a little skeptical of this hotel. It looked a little run down from the outside but was pleasantly surprised on the inside. The ladies at the front desk were extremely helpful. Rooms were relatively clean. I doubt whether the cleaning service vacuums under the beds since my son found someone's dirty sock underneath the bed. The air conditioner was very loud. Location is fantastic. Very close to downtown Pismo and close to a shopping strip.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the pool can get noisy.
