Cottage Inn by the Sea
Ranked #7 of 29 Hotels in Pismo Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 February 2013

Great place to stay in Pismo Beach. The rooms are clean and decorated very nicely. With fireplaces and the roar of the ocean it makes for a very soothing experience. The staff are always very cordial. Really good value.

Room Tip: Ask for an ocean facing room, it's worth the few extra $$

My boyfriend and I stayed here over the holiday weekend and loved it!!! It's adorable!! It doesn't look like a typical hotel. We called it the Hobbit Shire :) Rooms are huge with high ceilings. Beds are sooo comfortable. The fireplaces are nice but really really heat up the room. We couldn't keep ours on very long. The free breakfast is good. They have a little garden area with chairs that over look the ocean and steps that lead down to the beach. I would definitely go back!!

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the ocean and garden are nice but just know there will always be people in front o...

Stayed here one night. Great value, the rooms were large, comfy and had fireplaces to warm up next to. Located on top of a bluff overlooking the ocean. Neat little garden area to hang out and relax in. About a mile from downtown Pismo Beach - close enough to walk to but far enough away so that its a bit more secluded. Great service, only complaint is that our room wasn't super clean. There was a tiny bit of trash and a loose light bulb on the floor. Also there was some traffic noise from the 101, but I live in LA so I'm used to it and it didn't bother me. Average breakfast. Wish I could have stayed longer. Would recommend/ stay here again. They offer AAA discounts.

Stayed only one night. If we had known that this was such a great place we would have planned to stay a few more days in the area. Friendly and nice staff, rooms spacious and clean great price. We would definately stay here again.

Stayed here one night on the way down to LA. Wish I could've stayed longer to enjoy it more. I had a room on the ground floor that had a fantastic gas fire place. The rooms were massive. Bathroom is a bit tired but overall wonderful. Best thing is the view of the beach. I got up early had the lovely breakfast which is included and watched the beach for a while. Recommend statying here. They are also pet friendly which I noticed so that is a nice touch!

Stayed here in early January. This has been my fourth stay at the Cottage by the Sea. It is a really great property. Great location, great rooms, great prices. The winter rates were the best rates we have received! The room is so cozy and fireplace is a must for winter nights. A wonderful four nights at a wonderful hotel!

Our first time in Pismo Beach...Booked directly with hotel for a pet friendly room. Others were having problems having booked online through travelocity/expedia etc, so would recommend always booking directly here. Checkin was swift on a busy Friday night, and the room was ready on time, with a lovely towel arrangement and gift pack for the dog which was a pleasant surprise. Even though our room was by the road it was not noisy. The room was a bit dated, but clean and roomy, even with 3 people sharing with two queen beds. Perfect access to the beach and beautiful sunset walk to Pismo Pier, and a short distance to excellent dining. Self serve breakfast was definitely one of the best we encountered on our trip, with lots of choices and fresh good food available.

Room Tip: book early for a waterview room away from the road...
