Spent a very nice 3 days at the Inn relaxing and visiting the area. We had a nice upper level room with a great view of the ocean. The large comfortable room had been updated and upgraded recently. The Inn and the gournds have been nicely spruced up. Generally, the town of Pismo has improved from past visits but has...

We only stayed at The Inn for one night but it was quite enjoyable. We were upgraded to a second floor room upon check in and loved the view from our balcony. The front desk clerk was amazing and recommended a great place for dinner. The room was incredibly clean and the location was beautiful and quiet. The Inn is...

We stayed here one night during our drive up the coast. I wish it was a longer stay. Our room was really spacious, clean and beds were comfortable. My daughter loved the pool. Beautiful views in the cove, however a little sad that easy access to the beach was closed. Breakfast was just ok - but it was free! Would...

The Inn at the Cove offers oceanside accommodations in a quiet location on the north side of Pismo Beach. This "all ocean front' room facility was a great find. It is on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The rooms are clean and comfortable, Each has a private balcony with chairs and a small table. It's a relaxing place to sit...

We got a room on the basement and there is no elevator to move yr baggage. When we requested for a room on the parking floor level due to heavy baggage, the lady...

Yes, the view is great. Yes, it is pet friendly (and the donate part of the pet fee to the Humane Society). However it is very overpriced. We have often paid hundreds per night for an oceanside room, but there were too many drawbacks for this room to be worth that price. The room wasn't as clean as it should...

Beautiful hotel in a lovely location. Really easily accessible from the 101. The views from the rooms were fantastic and a nice little touch is they give you binoculars in the room for whale/ dolphin watching (not that we saw any). There were plenty of leisure facilities so is perfect for a few days by the coast, with easy access...
