    Large twin queen rooms. Nice pool and hot tub with a view and fire place. Very good breakfast buffet for 14 dollar (+ tax + gratiuty)

    Booked an ocean view room, but recieved a basement room with absoultely no view. When I asked to switch room, they offered me breakfast and no room change. Finally, after staying 1 night in a horrible room, they moved me. Still an overpriced room and when I checked out, they made no adustment on my bill for the room I has stayed in on Friday. They also tried to charge me from their restaurant form someone else's bill. For over $600 in charges, I feel robbed.

    Great comfort and room design. Rooms have visibly been refurbished recently. Rooms have even their own private fire place in the room.

    Although the rooms have been refurbished, the bathrooms have not.

    We had the partial ocean view room, and we still had an amazing view. It is amazing to wake up to the sound of the ocean. We had a north facing room so to our left was the ocean and directly in front were trees and greenery, with mountains beyond. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. It's a small cozy hotel in a great location with great service. I highly recommend!

    The view. The rooms were very nice.

    Yes. The way the "upgraded us by $80 more a night, then gave us a room without bath venting. We were told someone would fix it, then we were told we would be moved. We were moved to yet another room and the vents didn't work there either. No vents in any room worked, and they knew it all along, but put us through this chess game anyway. When confronted, we were issued a credit for the $80 upgrade. They did prime us at check in with a discount ticket for Off Season visits and a couple of drinks.

    wonderful

    we were in room 227 and some machine kept kicking on all night.

    The atmosphere was friendly, clean and comfortable. The dining options in the area were good.

    We were a bit disappointed with some of the clientelle! There were young college kids who were at the bar/restaurant who proceeded to use the swimming pool and hot tub...we weren't convinced they were hotel guests. The spa area was not as comfortable as we would have expected. It appeared to have been scaled back. For instance, reservations for treatment were to be made at the gift shop as there was no reception area at the spa.

    Good Location. Nice vacation spot with good restaurants close by. Close to Downtown Pismo.

    Room was near some exterior noise. Not sure where it was coming from. Sounded like ice machine or vending machine.

    Beautiful relaxing breathtaking views.

    Only had one bad experience with a cocktail waitress who was brisk. Loved everything else. We ended up eating elsewhere because of her.

    The location was great, and the front desk staff helpful and friendly

  • Older travelers

    The location on the ocean is quite beautiful. The staff was very friendly and attentive, especially the bellmen/valets. The plantation shutters in our room were very nice and opened to a very pleasant partial ocean view looking north.

    The bathroom in our room was quite shabby, definitely in need of updating. The morning coffee service in the restaurant was poorly stocked and maintained. The coffee urns were often empty requiring the guests to wait for refills and decaf was not provided.
