“Very impressive suite at great price.”
Reviewed 14 December 2009

My wife and I had never been to Pismo in November but to our surprise the weather was perfect and the crowds were non-exsistent. This hotel had amazing rates this time of year. For under $200.00 we got a $400.00 suite and the room/view was incredible as well as the service. We usually stay at the hotel next door because each room has a spa on the patio but this is going to be our hotel from now on. I highly recommend it.

My sister and I just returned from Pismo Beach and stayed for 5 weekdays at The Sandcastle Inn. We stayed on the 2nd floor (of 3). Our room was oceanfront. It was a bit challenging to put all our things away as the armoir that housed the TV and frig had only one large and 3 small drawers. The closet room was large, but bring extra hangers. The beds, sheets, pillows were great, as was the view from our balcony. Wonerful sunsets and just steps away from the beachfront. The sand felt like silk, there were very few people on the beach, at the hotel and no one was in the hottub on the lower floor outdoors any night we were there. We ALWAYS stay here. The staff is so friendly. The hearty free breakfasts were a plus. The location is everything, nearby outlets and fabulous retaurants, gourmet delis. We will return.

My husband and I always enjoy our trips to the coast. Over many years of travel from the Central Valley we have found that the Sandcastle Inn is our favorite destination. It is absolutely wonderful to be right on the beach and within walking distance to all that is in Pismo. The staff is always friendly and the breakfast, cookies and coffee make us feel at home.

I loved this hotel. The continental breakfast was great when traveling with small children and they provided a wide selection of breakfast items. The beach front location was in close walking distance to the pier and local shops and restaurants. Also, the staff was friendly and always had a smile. Rooms were comfortable as well. I would definitely stay there again on my next visit to Pismo Beach.

It was a delight to stay here!! The staff was so helpful and friendly and the room was wonderful--spacious and very attractively decorated, NOT over decorated. Everything about the Sandcastle made us want to stay longer to enjoy the view, oh those beautiful sunsets, the extremely comfortable and attractive rooms, and the attention to detail given by the staff members. Too bad our dog was not with us to enjoy it all too.

For those of us who live in the hot dry desert, every now and then an "ocean fix" becomes necessary to restore balance in our lives, so we are particularly sensitive to the quality of an environment whenever we travel to the ocean. To have a room and balcony right over the sand, and with glass doors safely open to the sound of the surf all night, is wonderful; but the Sandcastle provides so much more! From the graciousness constantly offered from the moment of our arrival; the attention we noticed being given to every detail of service and maintenance--items often taken for granted--and which is evidence of excellent management; those delicious waffle breakfasts complete with hot & cold cereals, fruits, pastries, and all the fixings that others have mentioned (and not exaggerated); the lovely well decorated and well maintained rooms; all these things contributed to a richly relaxing vacation for my husband and myself. We stayed for a week, and wished it could have been more. On two evenings we ordered that great clam chowder from the Splash Cafe and ate it sitting out on our balcony watching the magic of the reflected violet and rose colored light on the water as the sun set and it turned into dusk. One afternoon as I walked in past the front desk one of the women, I forget which one it was, called out my name from memory, and told me that my husband had come to the desk an hour or two before because his key had stopped working, and so she offered to restore mine just in case it had also been exposed to whatever it was that made his lose its programming, before I went up to my room and might have had to make a trip back to the desk. She anticipated a possible need, she thought of my convenience, way beyond what would be called for; an example of what makes the Sandcastle so very special. We'll return again and again. And bring our two dear girl dog companions!
