“Great Location”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

I found this place quite by chance and how lucky we were. The location and the view are fantastic. The second floor room with a balcony gave us a view of the entire coast. A short walk to the beach with many tidepools.
An even shorter walk to the restaurant that offered a delicious breakfast special for guest. With this location we were so close to so many good restaurants. The staff here was great. They were very helpful in getting me the room that I wanted. Will definitely go back to this gem.

Room Tip: Ssk for a second floor ocean view with a balcony.

We stayed here because of the great rates and because they take dogs.
Many people had dogs with them, but the dogs do not interfere with other guests. There are three resorts on this bluff, and of the three Spyglass is the least expensive. So you are getting a great location at a good price.Private beach. Great dog beach, and many nice families and kids there. Everyone just enjoying the tidepools and the ocean. What a peaceful weekend.
Hotel rooms were fine, considering we were on the beach with sand and dogs, the rooms were amazingly clean and well kept.

Room Tip: There are ocean front rooms on the ground floor with would be great for a dog owner.

After a six hour drive in the rain on a California freeway, my niece and I checked into the Spyglass Inn in Pismo Beach (San Luis Obispo). To wake up in the morning and be able to watch the seagulls, the waves and the gorgeous coastline was perfect. The room was fabulous with wonderful beds. The restaurant attached was also very good and had a nice variety of foods to choose from. All in all, I'd stay there again in a heartbeat! If you have BCAA, the rates are great!

We booked two rooms for three nights, one for my wife and I, and another for my 19 year old daughter who loves to celebrate her birthday in Pismo Beach. Both rooms exceeded our expectations, and though we prefer ocean view, were quite satifactory. We especially enjoyed our breakfasts at the Spy Glass restaurant, and were happy to be served by familiar faces.

Room Tip: Book early.

The Spyglass Inn is directly on the ocean, off Hwy101. The small outside pool hours were 9am - 9pm. Had booked via expedia, room was not oceanview but quite nice, spacious, decorated with marine theme, large flat screen, pleasant toiletries. The hotel is close to 101, and there is some minor street noise discernable when outside. There were apples at reception :) no coffee or tea however.

Parking is free. Breakfast extra, available for 5.95$ per person in the restaurant adjacent.

Room Tip: Book through Expedia

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.
