I was in this area for 3 nights and stayed at this hotel one night. The rooms are large with balconies. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a tub/spa that was great for soaking and relaxing after a long day. The room was dark and quiet and night and I slept very well. They provide a complimentary breakfast... More

We were here on a weekday and it was a great value. Yet this weekend was very busy so the prices skyrocketed. Not your typical layout a bit unusual it's built on a hillside so a little extra walking. The breakfast is in a building by itself but it's clean quite and good staff.

Very odd layout with 3 buildings, the offices, and 2 separate buildings with the rooms. The building I was in did not have a secure feeling as the key lock to enter the building was not working, any one could walk in, no key required!! The breakfast was usual fare, Holiday Inn needs to look at upgrading in some areas... More

Beds were extremely swayback, totally worn out. Dresser was worn out, even had broken handles. Room needed complete update everywhere. Rates doubled on the weekend. there are cheaper better hotels in the Pismo beach area. Management needs to put a little of what they are charging back into the rooms.

I really enjoyed the layout of the hotel. It was freeway close, but very quiet. Conveniently located to Arroyo Grande, Pismo, Grover City, and other points nearby. It is not on the beach, and hence does not have beach-front prices. The rooms have a nice small balcony, these could use a chair or two, but we drug out the indoor... More
