My stay at this property was just "okay." The buildings with guest rooms are located separately from lobby building. There was a small fridge but no microwave in the room. Shelby at the desk was nice. The furniture was a bit dated but the room was bright and clean. There was no odor. I don't like separate buildings with separate...

This Holiday Inn Express is different than others I've stayed in, it is several different buildings. The front desk and lobby is in its own building and that's also were they serve their free breakfast. It's a neat place that's a little more quaint than a lot of their properties. It is getting older and should have an upgrade done...

I was in this area for 3 nights and stayed at this hotel one night. The rooms are large with balconies. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had a tub/spa that was great for soaking and relaxing after a long day. The room was dark and quiet and night and I slept very well. They provide a complimentary breakfast...

We were here on a weekday and it was a great value. Yet this weekend was very busy so the prices skyrocketed. Not your typical layout a bit unusual it's built on a hillside so a little extra walking. The breakfast is in a building by itself but it's clean quite and good staff.

Very odd layout with 3 buildings, the offices, and 2 separate buildings with the rooms. The building I was in did not have a secure feeling as the key lock to enter the building was not working, any one could walk in, no key required!! The breakfast was usual fare, Holiday Inn needs to look at upgrading in some areas...

Beds were extremely swayback, totally worn out. Dresser was worn out, even had broken handles. Room needed complete update everywhere. Rates doubled on the weekend. there are cheaper better hotels in the Pismo beach area. Management needs to put a little of what they are charging back into the rooms.

I really enjoyed the layout of the hotel. It was freeway close, but very quiet. Conveniently located to Arroyo Grande, Pismo, Grover City, and other points nearby. It is not on the beach, and hence does not have beach-front prices. The rooms have a nice small balcony, these could use a chair or two, but we drug out the indoor...
