Won't find a better location along HW 1 between Santa Cruz and Santa Barbara! Perched on the cliff, rooms facing the Pacific. Quiet, clean, large pool and hot tub, new upgraded breakfast. A treat! Try to get a room on the 3rd floor.

Place is in a prime location. Very friendly staff and service. Great view of the ocean and pool area. Comfort of the rooms and beds. For the location very reasonable rates, can't beat the rate for being right by the ocean and with free parking and breakfast included.

We stay at this hotel as it is right on the cliff above the ocean, and we enjoy sitting on the porch looking out at the ocean, and enjoy touring the areas around Pismo Beach Area, with good restaurants and plenty of things to do in the area.
