Cozy cottage
Excellent location and service, front desk is incredibly kind, courteous and helpful. The hotel is one of our favorites when we need a few days at pismo beach. Rooms are super clean and cute. Kids really enjoy making s’mores in the fire pits and the heated pool and spa at night.

Cozy stay
The room was clean and had a fireplace - big plus for us. We unfortunately got in late so we couldn't take advantage of the fire pit. But the location was amazing.

Nice Room
The fire place was a nice touch to have even though we didn’t need it during this summer trip. The ceiling fan kept the hot room cool in the evening but wasn’t quite enough during the day. The room was great and cozy and just what we needed :)

Location, location, location-gorgeous!
Great location, awesome people, but definitely needs some cleaning and upgrades. The carpet needs deep cleaning or replacement, and the bathroom as well.
