We stayed at the sea gypsy for a family gathering over Labor Day. The rooms were large and the ocean view from the second floor - even with a building in front of us - wasn't bad. The full-sized fridge was convenient and the location right in town was great. I was a little dubious of the fold-down Murphy bed...

We need somewhere to put our heads down for the night and we found this nice little motel on the beach. It was perfect as we had a sort of an apartment so my son slept in one room and we in another. It had all the basic amenities plus a few more like a microwave. The place was clean....

Turned up on spec as the motel we were planning on staying in did not look very nice. We opted for a room that did not look over the beach as the motel is right on the beach so did not need to. Reasonably priced and the staff are really nice. Good breakfast in the morning to send us on...

Had a great vacation at Pismo Beach while staying at the Sea Gypsy. Love that it's right on the beach, so no driving. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed to cook in the kitchen. The staff is very friendly! The only downside is the thin walls, if there are loud guests, who'll hear them. Bring earplugs...

I have stayed here twice. Condition of the room was good. Quiet enough during the week but weekends were another matter. Hard to sleep with partiers roaming around yelling and going on until the wee hours of the more morning. Also, our sleep was disrupted by loud, very loud pipes and what was probably a bad water heater on the...

Clean, Convenient, and well maintained! This jewel of a place is on the beach, close to the pier with all those restaurants and shops, and has a variety of guest room options. We had been driving all day and wanted to 1-see the ocean 2-eat, 3-sleep and within our budget. Sea Gypsy provided us a base to do all that....

The rooms face the ocean and when you open your sliding glass door your can hear the ocean. The room has a full kitchen. It was very clean and the staff is wonderful. The beds are firm and pillows are perfect not to soft. You can park your care and walk to any style food you could want. Most of...

We booked a queen size room. Nice and close to the beach front, maybe a few 100 meters until your toes meet he sand. The room was well serviced. We were only supposed to stay at Sea Gypsy for 4 days and then move to another hotel. Friend asked the front desk if there were any cancellations on the 5th...

We love staying at the Sea Gypsy we stayed here again for the New Year’s holiday this past year. The price was great especially considering we were there for a holiday. The rooms are what they are very simple. But you cannot get a better view of the beach in Pismo. We like to get the whole suite where you...

Great location. Great prices. Need to sleep? Don't plan on it. Paper thin walls, noisy guests, if you are not on the top floor you will hear every step and flush from above. I don't often give these types of reviews, but I do like to get some sleep when staying in a hotel.
