We nabbed a great mid-week rate, $119, on Hotels Tonight for a spur of the moment trip to Pismo Beach. Spyglass Inn is actually located north of the congestion towards Shell Beach in the higher rent district, making it even more of a bargain. A car would be a necessity, but we liked being in this area for the stunning...

Driving PCH 1 south to north we were ready for a coffee break as we got to Pismo. As Pismo downtown area was somewhat disappointing we drove onwards and happened to see Spyglass Inn. What a great find! We had coffee on the terrace but the terrace has one of the best views in the world! We didn't eat but...

This property is run by Pacifica Hotels Corp. and it is typical of their properties that I have stayed in. It is a well maintained/managed older property with a great location. In this case on a bluff overlooking the ocean. We went to sleep/woke up to the sounds of the surf. Our ocean front room was comfortable and clean with...

Great view of the ocean from our second story room. The hotel did not have some of the amenities as its neighbors but the room was very spacious. The lay out was perfect as you can lay back on your bed, watch TV and have a view of the ocean in the background. Large showers and plenty of closet space....

Having read several views after booking a standard room, we decided to upgrade to one of the ocean view rooms, and boy, were we glad we did! It really does look like the photos on the website, and listening to the sound of the ocean was wonderful. There were some noisy guests about during our stay, out on the balcony...

Sadly, i didnt even get to stay with Spyglass because their reservations team was so horrible. four weeks before my trip i reserved two rooms for two nights with hotels.com. One of my rooms was requested to have an accessible handicap bathroom since my dad suffers from ALS. While hotels.com does disclaimer that sometimes these accomodations cant always be met,...

This is a beautiful property! The staff was amazing and the view was spectacular! If you are looking for a truly relaxing get away or even a little staycation you need to stay at the Spyglass. The rooms are very clean and beds are very comfortable.

We stayed at the Spyglass Inn in Pismo Beach, Ca, for 1-night in early May ($199). The inn consists of a number of 2 and 3-story buildings arranged in a rectangle around a large parking area centered by the swimming pool. We stayed in a king ocean-front fireplace room on the ground floor of the long 2-story building perched at...

We booked just one evening at this location, arriving after a long drive and a little tired, we were offered an upgrade to a room overlooking the sea which we accepted, and so pleased we did, magnificent views and accommodation. Well worth the extra, huge comfortable bed was another bonus. Would have liked to have stayed another evening.
