Name: Mr Callen Dangelo, and this staff and crew were impeccable at making a customer feel appreciated and accommodated. Best stay at any IHG or Hilton owned property in last 3 years of travel, if not ever!

Hotels these days don’t have much to offer. Their only commodity is friendliness. This hotel rises above most others in that department.

Hotels these days don’t have much to offer. Their only commodity is friendliness. This hotel rises above most others in that department. We booked our room on points (we booked a King), and were unable to select a room on the app, so we were surprised to arrive and have been assigned a room with two double beds. We contacted the front desk, and were moved immediately to a nice pool view King. To add to that experience, we decided to extend by a night, and were allowed to stay in the same room. In today’s minimalist-hotel world, that is as much as anyone can hope for. There is no breakfast, no daily housekeeping, and generally only one person at the front desk. Shrug. Same everywhere. On the second morning, we were awakened by loud neighbors ... definitely NOT the fault of the hotel. However, when we asked about addressing the situation, we were told that they had been asked to be quiet, and there was nothing more that could be done at that moment. This is where staffing cuts really show, if you only have one person on at night, and a young girl at that, she is not going to feel safe being very assertive and confrontational with a rowdy group. That sort of interaction requires security personnel. So, as a result, an entire section of the hotel gets to be kept awake by some inconsiderate (and likely, intoxicated) guests. They were giggling, laughing and playing music at 5:00 AM when were awakened, and apparently, for some time before that hour. I still marked five circles because we really like this hotel for the friendliness, large rooms, location and surroundings ... and because really, all hotels are the same at the moment. I would encourage anyone reading this, though, to be mindful that most staffs have been cut below what can reasonably be expected to be adequate to manage a hotel property. We hope this staffing cut will rectify itself once the pandemic has run its course. Read less

This hotel was perfect! Super clean and spacious for a couple! Me and my partner loved it and are thinking about booking once again in the summer! Pismo beach is just on the other side of the high way and there’s plenty of other stuff to do nearby
