It wasn't what we expected. It was more like a Motel 6. There is a construction yard behind the motel. Our room was on 2nd level, backside of the building. You can see the freeway from the balcony. The room was small. The bathroom had been remodeled but the bathtub was not, very old and small. The breakfast room was small and crowded with typical selections. They ask that you do not take food back to your room so we ate breakfast by the pool. We ate breakfast at Huckleberry's restaurant the next day, a good place for breakfast and it's right across the street from the motel.
The nearby small outlet mall was typical of all outlet malls, nothing special. Clam chowder at Brad's was better than the more well known Splash cafe in downtown Pismo Beach and the wait was shorter. The highlight of the trip was the butterfly grove and whale watching from the beach right next to the grove. You can drive right down to the edge of the beach and tail gate.

Glad you had a good stay Aaron, thanks for your review. Just about every restaurant around here serves clam chowder, locals all have their personal favorites. If you're into discounts you can find some stellar deals at that outlet mall, I got a pair of Nike's for $17.00 last year, (you have to find the hidden clearance tables!) last tip... if you go about 1/2 mile to the south of the butterfly grove you can go to Grover beach and drive your car right on to the sand. Hope you come back again soon!

The front desk was very friendly. The room was really nice and clean. Right next to the mall which was convenient. It was quiet. The room was spacious. I love how they have closet to put the bags and hang up clothes in. They had a fridge, blow dryer. That was very convenient.

In any other reality this place would barely qualify as an Econo Lodge. Had a 2 double bed room that left no extra room. Had a gap under the door that a rat could fit through. Beach town and gouged for it

Hello Crane, I do apologize that you were not satisfied with your stay. I will speak with our maintenance manager to double check that the door insulation has not been damaged in any way. As a side note, our hotel ranks in the 89th % for standards compliance with Quality Inn Franchise requirements, making our hotel one of the very highest ranked Quality Inns in the state.

If the larger issue was the room rates, all I can say is that the room rates are based on demand/availability and our competition's rates, and yes, on a busy weekend on the coast, especially during a holiday or three day weekend, the price can be higher than in other areas where there are more options for travelers. We do feel however, the added hotel features and amenities we offer are still a good value vs what might be offered at bargain no-frills hotels.

Thank you for staying with us and for letting us know about your experience.

Was undergoing a bit of construction. But was still fairly quiet. Very clean. The lot behind the hotel is under major construction. Front clerk was nice enough to check us in early and give us a room in the front.

This particular franchise is not deserved on this great surprise! As a Diamond Choice member, I tend to stay at a lot of their hotels, much preferring Comfort/Sleep/Cambria over the typical dumpy (and later verified by two bad along the trip) Quality Inns. This one should set the example to how you can properly maintain an older place to actually look great. The staff were all nice as well. my off season weekday rate was extremely low. Their pool and hot tub here are amazing! They are resort-like and felt great after a flight across the country. The location is safe/nice/easy to access downtown and the beach. I was not a fan of the bed (too firm, just my preference, and the breakfast could have been kept up slightly more with stocking items, but I wont take away the overall satisfaction of the room. Keep up the good work!

Thanks so much for your review! I'm very glad the remodeling we have done this year was appreciated, we rank in the top 85% of Quality Inn's in California and we work hard to stay there. I really enjoyed reading your comparison.
