We booked a double queen room a couple of days before our trip. Great price and huge room! Hotel is off the highway so good location. Breakfast is not included but there is a restaurant on site. Friendly staff!

This hotel is not near the beach but it’s within a short 5 min drive and close to the downtown which has great restaurants. Rooms here are nice and spacious, they have the basics. Breakfast was good, ample parking, staff is polite. They have a bar and restaurant but it always seemed to be closed however that probably isn’t the case all the time.… Read more

This is a pleasant property located across the freeway form Pismo itself. The drive to "town" is not bad and the "retro 50's" town is nice to walk. The city redid the esplanade a few years ago and it is very nice. One can sit and watch a spectacular sunset.

The city redid the esplanade a few years ago and it is very nice. One can sit and watch a spectacular sunset. The fog is significant during the summer and when the valley is hot but careful planning can avoid that. In about 20 years we have never experienced bad weather. Read less

What a wonderful Hilton Honors welcome we received from Eric at the Front Desk, as well as a Diamond upgraded room. This hotel is fabulous – no wonder we’ve been here twice before. The fitness room has free weights and the usual machines… laundry room is spotless… the pool (no Jacuzzi) is a nice size and very inviting… Keurig coffee in the Lobby around the clock (one cup at a time, so be patient), and the regular urn in the dining room at 6… breakfast was buffet and delicious! Thanks again Eric, we very much appreciated your Hilton professionalism. Read less

Short weekend visit to our daughter who is attending Cal Poly SLO, this is a great location with reasonable room rate. Spacious room with 2 comfortable queen beds, clean and spacious bathroom with 2 sinks, a large working desk and a comfortable sitting chair with ottoman tucked at the corner!! We had a patio room with direct access to the parking area, very convenient. It is a short scenic drive away from SLO, but you get a lot more for what you pay for compared to accommodations in town.
