“Upgraded Rooms”
Reviewed 23 April 2012

Stayed at the Spyglass this Easter. After reading reviews we upgraded to what we thought was an upstairs sea view room before departure. We were checked in by a pleasent young girl on reception and went to the room. Downstairs and a little dark, opened the door to a bit of a smell, not sure if it was animal urine or the plants? asked for an upstairs room which we got at a reasonable charge.( ended up free because of delay in prepping room but to be fair we had checked in quite early in the day) Lovely room , well , really nice room with a corner window and balcony overlooking the bay.Only marked as average because very good was too much, but good it was and I would stay again.
Restuarant very good and reasonably priced.

Room Tip: upstairs sea view a must.

We booked a last minute trip and ended up here based on the value. The room was large and clean but a little outdated. The bed was very comfortable though! The location is great, right on the water, I wish we had spent the extra $$ for a room with a view. We had a room right next to the pool which was very small and yet very crowded and loud. The check in staff were very pleasant and offered us several coupons for local establishments. We tried to eat at the diner but they told us indirectly that they were wanting to close up and we should go somewhere else, much to our disappointment. It was a decent stay but I think we would look into a different location for our next trip.

Room Tip: Opt for the ocean view room if possible! :)

My wife and I have stayed in many places up and down this area of the coast. We have spent far more and sometimes less for good to very poor rooms. The Spyglass Inn was perfect the price was reasonable, the room was clean, and modestly furnished. The view out of our downstairs room was breathtaking, that combined with the fireplace and the trail to the beach made this 4 day trip the best vacation we have ever had. The staff was incredible, the restaurant was better than I remembered it from when I used to live in Grover Beach. As always the Deli is the simple the best place to go for gourmet snacks, fresh fruit, deli fresh cheese and meats, salads and a huge selection of alcohol and spirits. We can't wait to take our (3) girls there next time we go to the coast . We would recommend to any and all to give this amazing hotel a chance you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Ocean view, either up or downstairs is an amazing view. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Peaceful oce...

For the second year in a row, we have held our business planning meeting at the Spyglass Inn. Our group of 11 staff enjoyed their stay very much. It's a cozy hotel with standard amenities and great customer service. All staff is attentive and offer to help. We love taking breaks to walk on the beach. The Spyglass Inn restaurant banquet room has an awesome panoramic view of the ocean.

Room Tip: I prefer a second floor room on the east side, so you get a partial ocean view and they are quieter.

We loved our stay at the Spyglass Inn in Pismo Beach. We took advantage of an off-season deal from their website, so the stay was very affordable. Definitely make sure to get an ocean-view room - we took advantage of the porch to enjoy every sunset during our four night stay! The view is fantastic. The room was spacious and had everything we needed. One minor problem with the shower was taken care of quickly by the staff. We look forward to visiting again one day!

Room Tip: Pay the little bit extra for an ocean view - it's worth every penny!

Very nice little hotel, with great views and good value for the money. Rooms basic but clean, nice little pool. Very nice local beach, accessed through rather steep path. Good place to stop if you are driving up/down the coast

Room Tip: All seem pretty good, but those near restaurant might be noisy at night
