The setting of the hotel is superb - right on a bluff overlooking the ocean and Pismo Beach. The grounds are really conducive to enjoying the outdoors and the exceptional view - we even saw whales spouting in the distance! The staff was very friendly and helpful. There are plenty of good restaurants available within walking distance of the hotel....

Great views at an affordable price. The rooms are spacious and clean. However daily maid service was not provided until requested but that was the 1st time since I have been staying here over the last 15 years.

This was a nice location with beautiful views , but a bit over priced. The pool area was clean and well equipped. There was an excellent restaurant within walking distance, however the free breakfast on site seemed to be out of a can.

We used this hotel as a Route 1 stop off for one night, but having stayed here, we wished we'd booked two nights. The hotel is immaculate and the views are stunning. The pool was a good size and it was a great area to relax around. The free breakfast was awesome and I left feeling stuffed. Don't hesitate to...

Great value staying here. Beautiful landscaping, nice rooms with incredible views, great pool and spa, and the breakfast was generous and delicious. The attached restaurant Ventana was incredibly good food with a Mexican flair. Beautiful bar and great wine and beer selections.

Great location. A terrific view of the Pacific atop the cliffs. You can walk to Main Street. A short drive to SLO. A little longer drive to Paso Robles, Hearst Castle, the sea elephants, Cambria... Lots of places to eat nearby. Usually cooler weather than in the LA basin.
