“Locals enjoying the view!”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

We just wanted a little get away...front desk got us into our room a little early, which we so appreciated. Even though we spent most of our stay outside on the balcony enjoying the wonderful view, the room was very clean and comfortable. We left to go to our favorite breakfast joint after checkout and noticed that the restaurant was serving breakfast. Went back and relaxed with a yummy omelet and even yummier Bloody Mary! Highly recommend the Spyglass Inn!

Stayed here for my husband's birthday weekend. Our room had a great oceanview, a comfortable bed and a fireplace. Even though we were told check-in was at 4:00pm, we arrived at 2:00 and were allowed into our room. Good "Happy Hour" in the restaurant that night. The next morning we had the breakfast special which was delicious. Another plus-dog friendly. So our dog "Boris" was allowed to join us. This place is also close enough to have lunch in Morro
Bay and check out the butterflies at Monarch Butterfly grove.

Room Tip: Ask for an oceanview room. You won't be disappointed.

Just stayed here for Christmas. Room had great view. Sat on the chair on the balcony and it broke, I am not fat btw. Bathroom was depressing small and very 70s. I booked online and was told check in was 3 pm, we arrived at 3 and room was not ready and we were told check in was 4. Had breakfast in the restaurant, it's hard to get oatmeal wrong, but they did. And they didnt have soya milk. The waitress seemed genuinely unhappy to be there. I would not recommend Spyglass. Management have obviously decided that because they have a great location, they can not bother with any other standards. POOR.

We had a family reunion and booked several rooms with the spyglass Inn. The service was excellent, the rooms were beautiful. We all enjoyed our rooms. Great little get away!

Room Tip: The ocean front rooms are the best!!

First time staying in Pismo Beach. Front Desk staff were very helpful and friendly.
Very easy to find, which was an important factor. Rooms were nice, beds and pillows were very comfortable - another important factor. Easy access to highway to get to other destinations (Morro Bay, Monarch Butterfly Grove, downtown Pismo Beach and Pier, Cambria, etc.) -- Front Desk helpful in providing directions and maps. The ocean view from the property was awesome (restaurant on hotel grounds had very nice outdoor seating area, with gorgeous sunset views while we were served dinner). Could not see ocean from hotel room (didn't reserve ocean view hotel room) but you had the opportunity to walk along the property to admire the ocean if you chose not to dine in restaurant. Had a cute little balcony on 2nd floor, and could sleep beautifully with ocean breeze blowing through the open patio door.
One drawback: Construction workers were working on a renovation project near the pool.
Wanted serenity, peace, and quiet. I realize November was off-season and manager most likely scheduled work at this time of year, so I guess no time would be a good time for construction work. At least they started a bit later in the morning, but still noisy.

The least relaxing experience I had on my three week trip in the U.S. Dirty bed, floor and headbord. It was a door between our room and the room next door - felt like we were sharing the room with stangers as it was so loud and we could hear everything they were saying. Unsanitary, damp bathroom that had a certain distinct smell. The rooom had a kitchen/ hairdryer (!). Our room was located by an gas station - not a green tree or a beach in sight. (The beach is near by, you just couldn't see it from our room or the parking lot). Confused youngsters working behing in the hotel reception. And all this would have been FINE for a one night stayover, if the PRICE hadn't been this STEEP. We were shocked. And haven't felt like talking about it since.

Room Tip: Get a room by the bach at one of those discount offers. Or just don't go at all....
