Staff at this hotel excels on mking you feel welcome-from the front desk staff to housekeeping. The front desk staff provided us with ideas and coupons for dinner. Housekeeping staff always smiled and offered assstance. The views from the jacuzzi and breakfast area were great. The room was clean and the furniture contemporary. Can't wait to go back!

We have been staying at the Sandcastle for over 25 years and it was always our first choice when our kids were growing up as you couldn;t beat the convienence and views. Now that we are retired we enjoy the Sandcastle without kids. Stayed 3 days in Jan 2011 and had such a nice time, the staff was excellent, up grades to big screens and other decore great and the place was so clean. Hated to leave but will return next month, it's too good. Our new food find Rosa's oh my god, the Wed night Chipppino is to die for and the new happy hour very great. Spend a little more and go for the second floor with full ocean view, so romantic....

We went to Pismo Beach in January 2011 to escape for a little warmth from our chilly hometown. We travel with our dog, Lexis Paris and this was the perfect pet friendly hotel. We stayed an extra night because it was so nice. Our room was on the oceanfront with a spacious balcony. It was clean, bright and perfect for sunning and relaxing. This time of year the area and beach was not crowded, even though we were there over a weekend. Wonderful restaurants, shops and the pier were within walking distance (Rosa's is very good) The town is dog friendly and many restaurants cater to people and their pets with outside dining. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and made you feel welcome. The included breakfast is adequate to get you started. There are many different beaches, parks, wineries and outlet malls to explore within 45 miles or so.

Whenever we stay in the Pismo area we always reserve an oceanfront room at the Sandcastle. You absolutely cannot beat the location, the friendly and helpful staff, and clean and comfortable accomodations. Plus they have a very good complimentary continental breakfast. The sandy beach is right outside the front of the hotel, or you can walk along the boardwalk into town. Lots of good restaurants nearby and great winter rates.

This is a great place to stay in Pismo Beach. We returned to the Central Coast after living there for 10 years and needed a nice place to stay. After searching all the hotels in San Luis Obispo we decided to look at Pismo Beach hotels. I was surprised to see that the Sandcastle Inn was comparable in price to any of the other nice hotels in San Luis Obispo, so we booked it. Our "partial view" room was perfect. a balcony that faced north but still had a great view of the Pismo Pier and the ocean. The room was nice, comfortable and clean. Parking was no problem and free! Breakfast in the morning was also free and adequate. Waffles, fruit, cereal, bread, coffee and juice. After breakfast we asked if we could check out late so that we had time to play on the beach and they gave us an extra hour with no argument. Even in January, the weather was great and allowed us to splash around in the ocean and build a sandcastle. Great place to stay and reasonably priced for being right on the beach!

We have been coming to the Sandcastle for many years! We have taken my elderly 89 year old Dad, to our own children and our Grandchildren. What better place to relax and enjoy our family time together than the Sandcastle where there is sand, ocean, and beautiful sunsets from your room. Yes, it is a home away from home! The Sandcastle is a lovely friendly family orientated Inn and we always return to the Sandcastle! We always will! We have told neighbors and friends about the Sandcastle and they have come by themselves and their grandchildren as well.
We have celebrated our 40th Anniversary there with my children and Grandchildren this year. My grandchildren keep reminding me, Nonna,do you remember going to Pismo and seeing the ocean from our room. We will be going again next year after the arrival of another grandchild. Yes!
It is such a joy to be welcomed by the staff, they feel like our own family. Teri (or another person at the front desk) is there to welcome us and take care of our special needs. (We order a wheelchair for Dad while in Pismo and it is there waiting for us upon arrival or in our room.) Housekeeping,maintenance people, gardeners are always smiling and friendly asking about our stay. Everyone seems to work hard to make my "second home" a special place to be.
When in Pismo, we stay at the Sandcastle Inn and we will continue to do so!
