great views, but sadly partially blocked by floor to ceiling wooden shutters, quiet end of town, immaculate grounds, clean rooms (a bit small) but nice modern appointments ( including in room binoculars - nice touch. Toilet paper rivals the best of rest areas, and the pillows

Hotel was warm and comfortable with a great view of the ocean. We had reserved an ocean facing room. Breakfast was included and there was also an option for free charging of electric cars which was a big plus.

Dear Adventurer498910: Thank you for your kind review! That ocean view is amazing, and I am happy you were able to enjoy it! Our electric car chargers are a great feature, and will only increase in popularity. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best Wishes, Matt Classen - Guest Service Manager

This is our 4th trip to Inn at the Cove. It's always superb and we have a wonderful time. The staff is always friendly and gracious, the rooms beautiful and the views are out of this world! Forcing me to write 200 characters is the worst part of the visit to PIsmo Beach.

Our family of 4, an infant and toddler had a wonderful stay. The pool is heated, the view is spectacular and there is a beautiful beach to play nearby. I dont think there is a bad view from any of the rooms.

The room was larger than most hotel rooms, awesome ocean views, and close to downtown Pismo. A must see--be sure to walk out on the beautiful new pier (even during a storm as we did!), spacious and very safe feeling!

Our room was easily accessible from the parking and had a great view. I believe that was Room 412 or 421, maybe. Anyway, there are two levels of guest rooms: those direct from parking lot which is upstairs, and another level below. The pool and lounge areas are on the lower level, but I believe there is an elevator.

Sorry I don’t know. Best to check directly with the hotel.

The ocean front rooms have amazing 180 degree views of the ocean. The other rooms have at least a partial view of the ocean.

The beach area below the Inn is accessed by a short but steep trail. I have seen many families at this beach. If the children are very young I would recommend the main beach at Pismo. It is just a brief drive away and is long an flat.
