9.4 Excellent
Pros:The location is excellent, walking distance to all of the restaurants in downtown Pismo, and the hotel is literally right on the sand.
Cons:The room is tiny and the price is high, but you are paying for location here.
4.0 Mediocre
Pros:Excellent beach location. Literally, this is it. Everything else was terrible from the actually facility to the staff.
Cons:Staff did not have my reservation through If they didn't have vacant rooms I would've been out of luck. I booked the reservation over a month in advance, and since it was somehow lost by the hotel we got a room "under construction", which meant no door knob/lock on the bathroom, no closet to hang clothes, no smoke detector, no table to set things on. The manager on duty didn't apologize for the construction and said she was informing is so we didn't complain later. This is a joke of a motel run by people concerned only with taking your money and not keeping your business. I will never go back again.
8.2 Great
Pros:Feet from the beach.
Cons:No smoke alarm. It was ON THE BEACH. NO COMPLAINTS.
3.3 Poor
Cons:Office is only open from 8a-8p, every time i went in during business hours, no one was even there. Because of my late arrival/check-in, I found my room key taped to the office door. My room had no remote, there was no one there I could ask for one. It was a 2 night stay, the following day, I had the "please make up room" sign up, and room was never serviced. I wouldn't recommend.
3.3 Poor
Cons:Lost my reservation .
