We've visited a few places in Pismo but this is definitely our favourite. It's perfect, the rooms are spacious and well fitted out, the view is fabulous (even if they were doing some renovations) and it's just so relaxing. We had a couple of dips in the pool - which we had to ourselves during our stay - and to...

Typically a friendly staff. Beautiful property. A destination in itself perched on a cliff overlooking the ocean below. Have breakfast and enjoy the conversation with Darius, the young man who is the server downstairs. A wonderful, uplifting way to start the day!

Everything from checking in, the room, the view, the bed was extremely comfortable, everything was great. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We could not get the TV remote to work at first, and they sent someone right away to replace it.

We have stayed at the Inn at the Cove several times and have not been disappointed. Great location and renovated rooms make this a great experience. The beach is currently inaccessible due to erosion repair, but this should be done in the next year. Comfortable beds, great views, helpful staff.

I couldn't have asked for more. I looked for a pet friendly hotel in the Pistons area and came across the Inn at the Cove. We gave it a try and we're very pleased. We will definitely be back and will definitely recommend to friends. There's a park next to the hotel which is perfect for walking dogs, running, or...
