Oxford Suites Pismo Beach
Ranked #11 of 29 Hotels in Pismo Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 September 2009

On our road trip after leaving Hearst castle we decided to stop for the night along the way. After logging onto Hotwire and getting a really good rate, we arrived at Oxford suites. The lobby is most inviting and a basket of apples or other fruit is always offered. We were kept to wait quite a while at check in, but when we saw our room we were not disappoined. It was large, clean and had a lovely bathroom and kitchen area. We were given tokens for a drink at the bar, which we enjoyed. Breakfast was fantastic. One of the best we were offere over our month trip. The pool looked great but as we arrived late and left after breakfast we didn't get a chance to enjoy it. I would have gladly stsyed another night if time had allowed.

Pros: Full breakfast had the best hash browns I've every tasted. There were some nice updates to room decor such as granite/marble countertops, lamps, bedding, bedroom furnishings. The price was good, but partially because they incorrectly gave us govt rate. The pool looked nice, but we didn't have time to partake. Room seemed very clean.

Cons: Bathrooms are still not updated - acoustic tile ceilings and old tile floors; Exterior is also very old; couch was worn and ratty. Hotel has some smoking rooms, and allows pets - which is good if you are a smoker or have pets, but not so good if you don't want to hear barking or smell smoke. The parking lot in back is a little scary - it backs to some kind of waterway, which also meant mosquitoes (I got 4 bites)

I stayed here with my husband and two kids and we had a great time. I read some complaints in the other reviews, and the way I look at it is it all depends on your expectations. You are not going to get Four Seasons quality at a value price, especially in a beach town. And I do agree that the title "Suites" might be a little misleading to some. Our suite was comprised of two rooms, one with a King sized bed and a bathroom, the other was kind of a living room/bedroom, with a pullout sofa (which the kids loved sleeping on). If you think of it as an upscale motel that really goes the extra mile, you will not be disappointed. If you are expecting anything particularly fancy, pay more money and stay somewhere else. Yes, some of the furniture was a bit shabby. But the beds were very comfortable, and the pillows were uncommonly good. I especially loved the hardwood/Pergo floors in the living room. Anything that gets me away from hotel carpets is great for me! There was a reception that had evening food and drinks, and although it was technically adults only since it is served in the cantina, the kids are more than welcome to sit in the library area and eat food the parents bring them. There are also cookies and apples available at the front desk. The pool area was standard, but nice and the kids had a great time swimming. The (free) hot breakfast surpassed my expectations. The food was a notch up from other hotel breakfasts I've had, and if I had any complaints at all it would be that it was crowded with a long line when we went, however the staff moved things along efficiently. One should know that this is *not* located directly on the beach, but is a 5-15 minute drive depending on which beach you're going to, so I did not see this as a big deal. Overall our family had a great experience here and would not hesitate to stay here again.

Stayed here for just one night at end of trip to California. Oxford Suites are a motel type experience similar to a lot of hotels in this area. Our suite was on the second floor with a large wrap around balcony outside. The suite itself was well furnished and quite large, very clean too. There was a swimming pool in the centre of the compex. The rooms are made of quite thin material and the balcony outside vibrated with the constant thumping of children's feet as they ran up and down. Hence my title "package holiday feel". Oxford seemed to be a place that attracted families who appeared to be staying there for their entire holiday. It was difficult to obtain privacy unless you closed your door and remained indoors all the time. Oxford did provide an evening drinks and tapas reception along with an enormous breakfast buffet.... well done on that score. Generally it's not really a hotel for a one night stay such as ours. We felt like intruders on a group's package holiday deal.

Stayed here with my wife on a weeknight and loved it. I notice people complain a lot about children and the price, I say to those people avoid Pismo Beach on weekends. Rooms were neatly furnished and were real suites two rooms separated by a pocket door. A very friendly bartender and snacks in the evening. Breakfast was buffet style and very filling. All staff seemed attentive and friendly. People should know it is not on the beach, but only a 5 minute ride away. Outlets were 2 blocks away. We would certainly stay again and like I said early avoid Pismo on weekends.

We should have been staying at the Pismo Beach hotel which looked lovely on the itinery and overlooked the ocean. This is an older style 2 storey motel with a swimming pool the size of a baby pool at most other hotels. The Reception area is bright and welcoming and there is a small library area next to the bar. The room had a King Size bed with 2 colour TVs one in the lounge and one in the bedroom. There was a Fridge in the room. The bathroom was OK but not great, extractor fan very noisy but this went off when the light was turned off. The room overall was comfortable with a seating area and also a DVD player. The Breakfast was ok with a choice of Cerial and cooked breakfast which was free of charge. To Summarise the Motel is OK for an overnight stay there are local shops and an outlet mall 200yds to the left open until 9pm as you come out of the hotel. The free breakfast made up for the lack lustre surroudings but we were still dissapointed to not be within walking distance of the ocean. Hello to all our fellow travellers who were there between In california 24/4 to 08/5.
