With our busy schedules we were only able to stay one night. We were celebrating our 19th anniversary. We arrived a little early and the friendly staff was very accommodating and checked us right in. The view from our room was gorgeous. The room itself was welcoming and cozy. The bathroom was a little small but it had everything we...

This is my third stay here. I always stay just three nights, and I wish I could stay longer!The restaurant food is very good. I never leave without a farewell- morning omelette. Delicious! I'll be back again.

We have been staying here quite a few times over the past six years. The first time we chose it not knowing really anything about it. It was a pleasant surprise. It is an older property in Shell Beach and is next to 2 newer more expensive properties. One section does have ocean views and is dog friendly. There is...

While I enjoyed being able to hear the ocean when I opened my windows, overall I was a bit disappointed in my stay. The room is outdated and could use some serious upgrading. No elevators made it a haul to lug luggage up the stairs. The outside of the property was very so-so. It would be ok for a quick...

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Spyglass Inn. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The shower is also very nice and the bathroom seems to be on the newer side. The people who work at the inn are all very friendly. Another plus is that they give out fresh baked chocolate chip cookies upon arrival!...

Great hotel with some of the most spectacular views on the central coast. Highly recommend Spyglass as the best value in the Pismo Beach area. Great service and rooms are super clean. I will definitely stay here the next time I'm in the Pismo area.

Once again I brought my family to stay out here, this time for my mother's birthday. Electing to stay in an ocean view room this time, my mother is still raving about the beautiful view they had from their room. A special thanks to the manager Jason at the time of check in for the fantastic service!

We only had one night at the Spyglass on the way to SFO but had a great, comfortable stay and enjoyed the clean room and location of the property. It's a bit further down from the busy part of town but still walking distance, bonus if you have a car. I would definitely recommend this property for a short and...
