Stayed at this hotel for one night and wish it could have been longer. It's a beautiful hotel, very clean and spacious rooms. But the thing to go for is the balcony view-wow. We had a sea facing balcony and the view was just incredible. They even provide binoculars for whale watching. The pool and hot tub are lovely with...

Everything about this stay was wonderful! Our room was clean, the view was awesome, and the little gift they had for us was quite a surprise. The staff was very courteous and pleasant and the complimentary breakfast was a treat! We will definitely stay here again.

Don't make the mistake of staying just one night! Too much to see and do in the area or just stay at the Inn to enjoy watching the whales and seals from the balcony. Never disappointed in the Martin Resorts, always meet our expectations on every level.

Great overall experience. The room was very clean and confortable. The second floor balcony overlooking the ocean was fantastic!! The staff very professional and accomodating. Better than average continental breakfast. There are plenty of places nearby for food and entertainment. The only minor issue was some road noise, but not really that bad.

A really unique place which I well situated and well run. The view is stunning. The rooms are beautifully decorated in a modern,fresh style. Access to Pismo beach is a short walk away. There is some noise from the freeway, so don't expect complete silence. It didn't disturb us at all.

Wonderful place to stay with a great view and gracious staff. Quiet, clean with great amenities and convenient parking. Great view overlooking the ocean rocks but you won't need to look out your window to find the rocks because your hotel bed mattress feels like it has been stuffed with them. Hardest mattress I have ever slept on. Be prepared...

Awesome location right on the cliffs. Took my girlfriend here over the weekend and its proximity to everything and its amazing view made it all worth it.

The room had a great view of the ocean with some of the rocky cliffs in the background. There is beach access if your up for a small hike down. The rooms were very nice with cozy beds as well as a fridge and microwave. Breakfast was included and they had a waffle maker which was delicious. There is a...

If you like to walk 2 restaurants are close by....1/4 mile or so. Ventana is to the south and there are a few restaurants to the north, but I wouldn't want to walk there myself. It's probably more than 1/4 mile up the highway. The city of Pismo is about 2 or 3 miles south with all the shops and restaurants you could want and that's where the pier is. There are a few restaurants in between the hotel and Pismo, but definitely worth driving to versus walking.

Yes, the Inn's website lists all the ADA features including 32" doorways, roll in showers and accessible toilet, lowered shelving, volume controls on telephones etc.

there is no mention of how many ADA rooms are available.

Construction ended in May. They were painting in June and July, but have since ended. The only elevator is located next to the Lobby, but is located outside facing the parking lot. The elevator opens up next to the breakfast area downstairs.

  There are many rooms on the upper level that are the same level as the parking lot,
