    Grounds and ocean views are beautiful. Rooms are big & clean, Staff is super friendly and accommodating. Close to Monarch butterfly grove and pier with nice small town feel. Restaurant choices are perfect. Try clam chowder at Splash Cafe.

    Lovely small hotel, great location, exceptionally helpful staff! Second floor room with balcony and stunning ocean view is a real gem! Located between Pismo and Shell Beach so a bit of a walk to restaurants. Easy parking and a very nice continental breakfast.More
