Hollister, California
Reviewed 1 August 2015

This hotel is placed on the edge of a cliff overlooking the ocean, and to the south, the Pismo Beach pier. The wing that is pet friendly (lower floor only 7 rooms total) has great views and you can hear the waves crashing below all night long. We were in room 101 which is the farthest south on the property,...

Our room overlooked a long stretch of Pismo Beach from cliffs to the pier, with a pleasant balcony for eating breakfast and watching birds and, yes, a whale! The bathroom was spacious and had two sinks which is always welcome. Breakfast was a scramble but not too bad.

Personal was not realy friendly, but the stay was good. Nice rooms, good seaview, good pool. The balcony was great to take a little sunbath or hang out the wash. Bathroom is big and clean, enough space for all the nescessary. A hairdryier is in there too.

We loved our room. If you want peace, ask for a room facing the pier. The view was wonderful and it was quiet in our area. Rooms overlooking the pool are noisy. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Room was comfortable and updated.

The location and view were fantastic. We saw whales splashing about for over an hour from minute we pulled in to the just sitting on our deck. I did the upgrade to full ocean view. View was worth it. The room itself was okay, but I wish they had screens on the door to deck as flies came in. The...

We loved this hotel so much we began and ended our trip here. It has beautiful views and the staff is very friendly and helpful. It can be a bit pricy on the weekends even with an AAA discount. If you request a room on the second floor, you should know that the hotel does not have an elevator. However,...

We stayed in a 2-bedroom ocean-view suite. It was very comfortable, clean, quiet and spacious. We had a fantastic unobstructed ocean view. It was pretty good value-for-money. The only downside was breakfast (self-service, crowded buffet, hard to get a table at busy times, limited choices) - but this is not a big deal compared to everything else. Recommended.

Lovely location...I would stay here again and recommend it to others. It was also very close to the beach, pier, shops and restaurants. That's all I have to say, but this survey is requiring more characters. Not sure why it makes you have so many characters when I'm done reviewing.
