If you want to stay close to the beach, this is a great hotel. The oceanfront rooms are just that with no road between it and the beach. The oceanfront rooms are being renovated right now, but should be ready soon. Those rooms are not large (suite size) and there is no air conditioning (unless that is being changed in...

Staff was great, we sent some packages to the hotel before we arrive, and they put them in our room so when we arrived they were waiting there for...

the staff was friendly and accommodating and also had a great recommendation for dinner. The view from my room beautiful. The hotel was within walking distance of the quaint little area that surrounds it. There were lots of restaurants and shops to visit and of course the beach was only steps away.

Loved that we were within feet from the beach, and how close we were from everything. The private balcony we had in our room was a great surprise, and the family suite we had was clean and full of extras.

Picked up this hotel because of location and hot tube/pool by the sea. Location is one of the best if you want to stay just by the sea. Unfortunately we did not got any information about ongoing renovation. There way no sea view from the rooms. No hot pool after surfing in cold pacific😤However, service was helpful and friendy and...

We went to the Sandcastle to celebrate my 76th birthday. While walking, I fell into a pothole and ended up with a bloody face and knee. We went back to the hotel where the receptionist immediately gave my husband their First Aid Kit. The next morning when we checked out, she had brought additional bandages from home. We were extremely...

We really enjoyed our stay,with beachfront it's hard not to, I would recommend this place to anybody that's staying in Pismo, the rooms could use remodeling kind of out of date but with the beach in your face it's hard to complain we will come back everytime were in area.

We were really excited about staying at this hotel, enticed by its location right on the beach. However, the renovations are unsightly and we were disappointed to discover that the hot tub was not operational. In fairness, once we expressed our disappointment, the receptionist offered us some meal vouchers for a local restaurant. We were very unlucky to arrive in...
