Be advised a large construction project just started NEXT DOOR - north of hotel with a large pile driver slamming huge steel sheets into the ground. Project should last several weeks from today (5/19/17) Ask before you reserve.

Thank you Rich for being our guest. With our current renovation project as well in our ocean/pier view wing, we are open for business in our recently renovated full ocean front wing with beautiful frontal views of the ocean, away from the direct construction next door. We look forward to having you join us again. Sincerely, Roger Wightman General Manager

This is the third time staying at this hotel, first since their new renovations. My family and I were very pleased with the upgrades they have done in their rooms! Bed and pillows were very comfy, huge flat screen tv. Love that they have air conditioning now in the rooms with a handy remote for it. You honestly can not...

A great location in Pismo right on the beach. The rooms are a decent size and have a great outdoor balcony area to sit out and enjoy the views. Currently (May 2017) there is a lot of construction going on at the pier and next door so the views will improve! The location is not only convenient to the beach...

Great place to stay, enjoyed everything Sandcastle Inn has to offer. We didn't stay on ocean view side but did have a very nice room. Love walks on beach, location, walking distance to downtown, close to seafood restaurants. Will return to Sandcastle Inn for our next visit.

The hotel was nice but pricey. We generally stay at the Kon Tiki but decided to stay in heart of everything in Pismo. Booked it knowing they had a hot tub and had been having knee issues. Upon arrival, I was told the hot tub is no longer. Sleeping was next to impossible because of the noise and when I...

A lot of construction going on so excited to see the place when it is finished. Loved the 3rd floor fire pit and balcony to meet up with friends late at night after dinner. I am a quiet sleeper so the only complaint would be that I could hear people walking around in the morning but was a great spot...

We have stayed at Sandcastle Inn every October for 20 years in a row until a couple of years ago when they decided to not allow dogs! It was a wonderful friendly clean place to stay until they decided on 'no dogs'!! Also at that time the friendly front desk people were changed out for some really rude people! We...

The hotel was perfect! We went for my daughters fifth birthday. It was the right time and the best place to take her. The staff was lovely and the rooms were amazing. My daughter especially loved the waffles for breakfast, and it was just an amazing experience ❤
