I wanted this hotel to be ok, but it just wasn't. When I arrived, the tile floor in the bathroom and sink area was so sticky that my shoes made squelching sounds. I wiped it down with a towel and some hand soap, and the towel turned grey. Speaking of towels, you won't get any bath towels here. In the...

I wish I didn't even have to give one star!! Hands down the worst experience we've had with a hotel!! Rooms are dingy, floors are nasty (my 1 year olds legs were black from crawling on the floor within 10 minutes of check in- and so were our feet). The TV had a large black line down the middle of...

Good parking, friendly staff, conveniently located with a decent restaurant right across the street and a market next door. Walking distance to the beach! Reasonably quiet and clean. Cable TV and wifi free.

I arrived about 40 minutes before check-in time, but it was no problem (great, because I'd just driven from San Diego and was ready to get out of the car!) and the young lady who checked me in was very pleasant. The property does sit right on Coast 1, but I took a hint from a previous review and requested...

This place is disgusting. The carpet is moist, the shower curtain has a poop stain on it. The mattresses are so old you can feel the wires in it. Oh, and there's no fitted sheet on the bed. Awful... I'd rather drive home through the night then stay here one more minute.

Pros.....Great price, walking distance to the beach, restaurants and activities close by. The rooms appear to have recently been updated. Less than a mile away is The Great American Melodrama, which is a fun event for the whole family, or in my case, just me. Also, about two miles up Highway 1 is the Hayashi produce stand. It's been there...

Had reservations for two queen beds. Get there and have me reserved for 1 king bed and they did not have a room for me. Long story short they wanted the name of the person I talked to when reservations made to get on to them, which was no point at that time which they could easily have found out...

Won't stay again. We stay in the area all the time, as my in-laws live near there. While we were there the area experienced a heat wave. We had been there 3 weeks with no problems. Our air conditioner had not been on since we were there, until the heat wave. The room was approximately 90 degrees or higher. We...

This is an average motel and much cheaper than comparable motels in Pismo Beach. It is very close to the beach. But on this part of the beach is designated for cars and buggy's which are allowed to drive there. Sunbathing here is not an option. During the weekends there is not enough parking space on the parking lot. When...

“no pool or fitness center but the ocean and beach are about 15 minute walk down the street. Old Juan's Cantina is across the street and has pretty good Mexican foods. They also had the Mariachi band playing so that was extra special!”
