Best hotel & value in Pismo Beach. Great restaurant and bar with spectacular views. Sea scallops and crab cakes might be the best we ever had. Clean and spacious rooms.

A bunch of us were meeting in the Central Coast Area for a special 3-day family occasion and checked with the Spyglass Inn for availability on 6 or 7 rooms. I had stayed there a couple of times before and had enjoyed my stay. They had the rooms available and offered us a special rate so we committed. Four of us arrived for two of the rooms and found that one of the rooms was a King, but we needed a room with 2 separate beds.

We were working with a desk clerk (Levi) to correct the error when another desk clerk (John) approached the desk and overheard our conversation. He immediately interrupted and asked if we were with the `special rate' party. I replied that we were and he shouts out that they were to do no favors for guests at that rate. It was a slightly embarrassing situation and we didn't want to make waves in fear of spoiling it for our other friends as they arrived so we accepted the room (figuring we would check again the next day hoping rude John wouldn't be around). When we got back to the car, we explained to my 83 year old mother that she would be in a room on the other side of the motel grounds and would have to share a bed with our friend. We told her we would try to change the situation the next morning and she took it in stride, being happy to just spend some time with the family on this special occasion.

We were able to get adjoining rooms the following morning and did enjoy time with the family, but will remember John's rude and demeaning attitude, thinking twice about Spyglass In ofor our next stay on the Central Coast.

BTW... Not only did our group utilize 7 (possibly unsold) rooms, our group and our local living friends and family ate breakfasts and dinner at their restaurant and patronized the bar.

Our staff at the Spyglass Inn is dissapointed to hear of a bad experience with one of our staff members. Our guest service staff is one of our most complimented features of our establishment. We hope to be able to provide improved hospitality in the future. Every comment helps up improve on a day to day basis.

Good room, nice service great jacuzzi, helpful at the lobby, and surprising calm for a full weekend. Everyone must be out enjoying the town and beaches, and butterflies! Good price benefit ratio. On the negative side we had no warm water the last morning. Nevertheless we are coming back!

We had a very lovely stay at the Spyglass Inn. Jennifer at the front desk was most professional, friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable.
We will definitely be back.
