When we arrived we didn't have a reservation and the man in the office was very friendly and helped us check into a room quickly, he told me if I paid cash it would be 20$ cheaper than paying with a debit or credit card and I appreciated the tip, he also mentioned that our toilet seat in the bathroom...

This place is an average spot for a weekend. Breakfast is small array of choices. Best part is the front office person for her great attitude. Electronic door lock is nice. We did not try the pool. A good place to stay in city of Pismo Beach.

We stayed at the Blue Seal Inn in August 2015. Or, rather, we checked in and left. For $300, we were given the "family suite," which consisted of three double beds. Initially, we were willing to pay because of the location. BUT, after we checked in, we were beyond disappointed. The bathroom was not clean. Moldy shower current, broken fixtures,...

Overpriced and the rooms were not very clean. The rooms look old and I can imagine that this hotel hasn't been refurbished for a long while. Stayed for one night and we were happy to leave again the next day. Wouldn't recommend it!!!

This place was not too bad. Clean enough and pretty close to the beach, bars and places to eat, walking distance. No air conditioning but they did supply a fan. The pool has no shaded area. We tried to stay here in September but the price was about double of the rate offered a month later so check out what...

The lady charged us 196.00 for the family suit which we didn't think was bad plus we were hungry and were in a hurry. We left and went to eat and run around. Got back and dropped my grandmother off and she calls me saying she can't even breathe in the place! It had a horrible smell. So she spoke...

We had a last minute event and this was the only hotel available. It was smelly and dirty. Finding a bug in the one of the beds was the last straw. It is close to the beach but I'd rather sleep in my car. Way to much money for a dirty room.

I went to pismo with my friends for a camping trip. They didn't reserve a site so we ended up staying at this hotel last minute. The room was nothing special. It had 2 beds and a bathroom. It also had a tv which I thought worked fine. I already have a thing about not sleeping in cheapy hotel beds...
