I loved it

Reviewed 16 august, 2021

Stayed here for a week with my 5 adults. Stayed in cottage 120 and it was amazing. The cottage was roomie, and very clean. The beds are very comfy with nice fluffy pillows. Lots of storage, and the kitchen was adequately supplied. The view was beautiful, and gave a great look at the ocean. The staff was incredible and very caring. No matter what our request was they were all very ready to help us in any way they could. The property was clean and quiet. I searched all over Pismo looking for a place that would supply all our needs and this place defiantly checked all the boxes for us. I would highly recommend and I will most defiantly be going back. Big THANK YOU to Debbie for all her help and honest input. Also a huge thank you to Eliad for his advice on beaches and great places to go. We had a great time while we were there.


Don’t trust the photos! Look for another place! Not worth what they charge!

Don’t trust the photos! We were only staying one night but even still we got into the room and promptly requested to be moved to their sister property two doors over. The rooms look much more modern and clean in the photos on their website and booking sites. They also show up in the filtered lists as having AC but certainly don’t. The cable wasn’t working. The bathroom looked dingy and they had a wooden block by the windows so you could prop the window open since there’s no vent fan. It’s not actually oceanfront- most of the rooms don’t have a view. We booked a king bed and got a queen- and were told that was the only available room. This all might have been okay if the room was under cheap- but for $265/night (after tax) on a Monday night, it’s a rip off! This is the kind of motel I’d expect to pay no more than $100 including tax for! If you show up later in the evening you have up go to the Cottage Inn by the Sea down the street to check in.. this actually ended up being the saving grace. I called their front desk to complain and they were very understanding and offered us a room at the much nicer property for the same price.

Yes, great ocean views from the cottages. The actual motel rooms look out on the parking lot and Highway 101, which was extremely loud. The room was clean - sort of. The bathroom floor had some stuff on it. Everything was extremely old and worn out. It had a weird smell. The walls were dirty. Unless you get a cottage, stick to a newer, cleaner hotel/motel without the so-called ocean views. It will cost less and be much less gross.


Great location

Reviewed 10 july, 2021

We have made two visits to this hotel, great for families or groups of friends. Older facility that shows its age in some areas but clean rooms, comfortable beds and helpful, friendly staff. I’d choose to stay again when in Pismo with family/friends.

Deferred Maintenance!

Reviewed 17 june, 2021

Very old facility with much differed maintenance, but at an upscale price! On the plus side, the free WiFi was good. We stayed in cottage # 113. It was in need of many repairs. Several windows were non-operable. Of the ones that did open, none would stay open. You had to put some type of blocking to keep them open! All of the doors seemed warped and did not close properly, even the two outside doors. There were three TV's. One in the living room and one in each of the two bedrooms. Of the three, only two worked. The more important one in the living room would turn on, but the 'cable box' would not. Thus it was useless. The kitchen also left a lot to be desired. There were hardly any plates, utensils, glasses or pots and pans. For featuring a 'full kitchen', this was a major disappointment. Trying to cook a meal was much worse than camping. Plus, the igniter for the burners didn't work and we had to use a lighter. Also, one of the burners was damaged and sitting at about a 45 degree angle. Lord knows what would have happened if we had tried to light it! In addition the oven did not work at all. If a family stayed here, I think that the stove issues would be a potential disaster waiting to happen. The sink was badly stained and there was a wine cork stuffed into the hole where there used to be a spray washing wand or dispenser. Because we had planned to cook most of our meals this was extremely frustrating. To top it off, the refrigerator door squeaked every time you opened it. The bathroom was bare minimum. There was no place to set anything down on. The shower did work, but was pretty dirty. There was also damaged tile and exposed plaster. The Tides Inn is located on a bluff just above the beach, but you cannot access the beach from it. The stairs down to the beach are old, very damaged and fenced off. You need to walk back up to the street, then down the street for two blocks, then down that street to the end, and then you can finally go down those stairs to access the beach. I guess it's just more deferred maintenance. No. I definitely do Not recommend this facility.
