My boyfriend and I stayed at Spyglass for our two year anniversary. I wanted to stay in the best hotel for the best price (within our budget) and that was Spyglass. I looked for hours and a few days online comparing all the hotels and Spyglass was the best deal and the nicest. The location is right off the freeway...

I come to Pismo often and have now stayed at the Spyglass Hotel a couple of times with my dog. Jason the manager is great! The hotel is in a great location-you can walk to the quaint cafes in Shell Beach and the view from the bar/restaurant is wonderful. If you are looking for a peaceful place to spend some...

We stayed for only one night thankfully, as an hotel in this area should definitely have air conditioning. There was a fan, but obviously this makes a noise, and only serves to blow warm air around. The restaurant seemed over priced. We did not eat there. Clean room.

We are all troubled by the challenges you experienced during your stay at Spyglass Inn. The unusual warm climate this year can make it uncomfortable at times. We often find that our customers enjoy taking a nice walk on our bluff top walk to enjoy the off shore breeze. Please contact me directly if you would like to discuss your...

This is a nice hotel, plush sheets and pillows, quiet. Our room had a great view of the ocean. I just wish it had air-conditioning. It gets warm in Pismo Beach too like the days we were there and it would have been more comfortable if there was AC. Also, it is closer to Avila Beach than to Pismo Beach.

I suppose that it served a purpose - an overnight stopover on our drive south from San Francisco. It's OK for that but I would avoid staying here for longer than that. When I compare this area to other parts of California, I just have to ask, why on earth would you build a hotel wedged between a cliff top...

We stayed here for 1 night on our tour of the west coast of America. The weather was exceptionally hot and the room was boiling hot. There was no air conditioning only a ceiling fan! We had to open up the window and door to cool the room down... Which meant everyone walking past could see in. The beds were...

We stayed here after a long drive along the Pacific highway and it was perfectly pleasant with a nice pool and a restaurant overlooking the sea where we had a very pleasant breakfast. The reception was small but tidy and the receptionist was friendly and happy. The rooms were a good size and clean. Our only problem was the tide...

We showed up on an early evening, and were pleasantly surprised with our partial view room. The room was clean and comfortable, and the balcony had a nice view of the ocean. The Spyglass Inn is a good value, and has easy access to the freeway and a lot of restaurants.

We live locally and recently were visited by family. We choose the Spyglass Inn because of the comfort and access to the Ocean for the family. The pool and hot tub are perfect. The Resturant is also located directly on the Ocean (nothing to obstruct the view) . The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The Hotel is within walking...
