"Not worth it!"
The room smelled musty and the hallways smelled like smoke.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is pricey & it's not that nice hotel , I should have stayed on the beach front hotel which has the same price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Excellent Restaurant & Freeway"
Room was comfortable and clean. Bath towels were missing when checked in. Outside walkways and stairs were dirty from spilled liquids that left shoes sticky. Lot of cabinets or furniture items stored in parking lot area but did not obstruct vehicle movement or parking. Staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good start to the day.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I was visiting Pismo Beach and Arroyo Grande. This hotel was conveniently located to both cities. It is also close to the Pismo Outlets. Room was very clean and comfortable, what I would expect from a Holiday Inn.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and convenient"
Our room was very clean and fairly quiet. Opening a window made for some serious street noise. Breakfast was good and there were lots of choices. The staff was pleasant and friendly. I would stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"One night in Aug 2013"
Excluding the outrageous price $$$, this hotel was nice. It was clean for the most part. It smelled like Clorox and Los cigarette smoke, oddly this is a non- smoking room. The fan, if there is one in the bathroom did not turn on. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was surprisingly good with omlettes, sausage, pancakes, begals, toast, muffins, […] cereal, yogurt, juice and good coffee. My rom was quiet good size for a two queen beds. The location is great if Ned to be close to the freeway and steak house. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Really nice hotel with a great free breakfast."
The hotel it self was in great shape. It is only a couple minute drive away from the Pismo Beach pier. There is a lot of food set out each morning for breakfast and it all taste good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not Bad, but Nothing Special"
This was not a bad place to stay, but when you book a room in Grover Beach, you somehow expect to be near a beach, not near a freeway---at least I did. If you just need a place to sleep, this is fine, but if you're looking for a family beach vacation, I would look elsewhere.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Would stay again."
The room was clean and comfortable. Compared to other hotels in the general area, the rooms were reasonably priced. It was obvious that certain things were updated and other things weren't but it didn't detract from the comfort level of the room. I would definitely stay here again when I'm in town on business.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Convenient Hotel, Little Pricey"
Convenient location, ate breakfast nearby, shower spigot a lil loose but operating, fairly quiet room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a great location and the price is reasonable for the area. The breakfast is pretty good which makes the cost even better. What we didn't like was, there were four of us and they consistently left us only three towels. The kids had to share a towel. The exhaust fan did not work in the bathroom. We went in the hot tub every evening and […] when we came back to the room all four of us had to take a shower. The room got so fogged up that we were suffocating with all the moisture in the air. The front desk said that they have a central fan. If they do, it wasn't working at all. The ice machine was not working in the building where we stayed. Every time we wanted ice, we had to walk to another building to get it. The pool is heated, but not warm enough. The hotel is fairly clean, but it could use a little more TLC. Don't stay at this place if you are expecting top of line accommodation. It will do for the price. It is close to everything you want to see and do in the Pismo area. Stay for that reason and the price, not luxury. I have stayed at other Holiday Inns which are a notch above this one. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice needs to be updated and breakfast could be improvedGenuine Expedia guest review
We enjoyed the roominess of the room and it was fairly clean. The only issue I had was that the foot stoool to the chair was very dirty and it appeared to have food stuck to it was not very inviting. The hotel personnel were very friendly and the breakfast gave us a good variety daily. We would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Away from the Crowds"
Great stay except the bed was not as comfortable as it looked. The room was somewhat warm the first night. We left the door open all night and the next day so the second night was better. Great breakfast and service!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It's not a luxury hotel but a great to stay for a good breakfast, clean room and great location for everything in the area. We went to a AM movie because of coastal fog, later nude beach, great restaurant, Custom House and then hot tubs at Sycamore Hot Springs all within 7 milesGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfy and clean"
We came during the Fourth of July weekend. It was a great alternative away from busy beach area during holiday seasons. Love their pancakes !Genuine Expedia guest review
there was no shower curtain when I got to the room but one was provided. The price of the room was a little high but the pancake maker was real cool!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room needs more electrical outlets. Close to HWY 101.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Bed covers were dusty and some of the room amenities were absent compared to some other holiday inn we have stayed in before. Other than that it was a good stay overall. 5 minute drive to beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Closeness to shopping and beaches!! Was here to attend the passing of a close family member.Genuine Expedia guest review
From reading the reviews, I was expecting a really nice hotel experience. I was disappointed. The property is small, so the configuration of the buildings/parking lot/pool seems cramped. Our room was fine, but the bed had no mattress pad. I asked for another fitted sheet, and the staff was prompt and courteous about it, so I appreciated their attitude. […] The breakfast was good, but we had to dodge two unleashed dogs on the way down the hotel hallway! I guess I missed the memo that this was a pet-friendly building. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was easy to find, right off the freeway. It was conveniently located close to DT grover beach. Quick drive to the outlets and Pismo Beach. The beds and pillows were very uncomfortable all 4 of us had back/neck pain after one night of sleep (we are adults under 30). Also the breakfast provided by the hotel was decent -- except for the bacon […] (membrane thin) worst bacon ever. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Overall the stay was fine. The only significant problem was that our room was on the third floor and the elevator was out of order. Staff was friendly and helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"DO NOT STAY HERE!!"
This place does not live up to Holiday Inn Express Hotel standards. I usually stay at Holiday Inn Express Hotels because I find that they are a great value. The staff are friendly, while the rooms are clean and comfortable. This particular hotel was the worst!! Upon check-in, I was not greeted with even a 'hello or welcome'. The receptionist just asked […] "Name?" and that was it. My room was not ready at the time of check in (2pm) and the same receptionist said that they will call my cell when the room was ready. Guess what? They never called. I got sick of waiting (4pm) and went back to the hotel to find that my room had been ready for a while. The room was old and the carpet had many dark stains in it. The cable TV would constantly lose signal and we would get periods of white noise. Although probably not their fault, later that night, the power even went out (~9pm). When I returned to my room around 11:30pm, the electricity was still out. This place is the worst. You should consider staying at a different hotel. If you have stayed in other Holiday Inn Express Hotels, and expect the same level of service and comfort, this will definitely not meet your standards. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Who's the maintenance man!??"
The tv was about 19 inches and from the 90's my sink in the bathroom was broken the drain completely detached and ran out in the floor the didn't even discount me or apologize. The breakfast was the best I've ever had at a hotel tho.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room was not clean"
On Sunday the table was so duty, the worker just did the beds and clean the bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to dining and the beach"
Nice Pool and the Staff was very friendly and accommodating, we had a to change reservation and add a room and a day, they accommodated us with no troubleGenuine Expedia guest review
"Wound stay again"
Exactly what we expected for a holiday inn express. Nice rooms, free parking, free wi-fi and free breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
Would stay here again, very convenient location and the breakfast was better than most hotels that offer free breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"There are better options"
Pros:Nice size room, 2 sinks, refrigerator, and the maid service efficient. Cons:The air-conditioner did not work. The TV reception was awful, the hot water for the shower did not work which was odd because the sinks had plenty of hot water. A microwave in the room would be nice. It's been years since I stayed at a Holiday Inn and based on this experience […] I will not return. There are may better options available in the Pismo Beach area.

Needed a place to stay while visiting a friend. My only complaints would be the location is on a busy intersection and traffic noise. I wish people would learn how themselves and then teach their children how to be quiet and courteous! Good restaurant on the property, the hotel gave me a 10% off coupon for a meal, yay! Nice place.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Price not equal to what you get."
Front desk personnel was friendly and helpful. Room did not have screen on window so could not open. Toliet was so low thought i was in a kindergarten class. Think it is time for the hotel to start upgrading...carpet could be replaced and tile in bathroom. Not enough chairs in breakfast area....bread was bigger than the toaster, had to turn sideways.?? […] Would not stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very disappointed stay"
I was very disappointed in my stay, the room was very loud. I could hear people moving around above me most of the night & then getting awaken at 5:00 am by a big rig truck right out my window. There were no shower caps in the bathroom. Your website said it was only 8 miles away from San Luis Obisbo, when it was really 15 miles, I was very disappointed. […] I will be going up to San Luis Obisbo a lot in the future, since my son will be going to school there, but I will definitely be staying somewhere else. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very pleased! We'll Be Back!"
Hotel is very clean and our room was cozy. Very nice person at the front desk upgraded us to a room with a fireplace because it was my birthday. Great room for the price. We will definitely be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Best bed ever! continental breakfast was great! room was nice and clean!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"easy access to many things"
Was bummed I couldn't find a hotel right on the beach. Yet pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to reach downtown Pismo Beach, Grover Beach and Oceano Beach. All less than a 5-8 minute ride. Convenient location for outlet mall too!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was very easy to find and to get to all of the places we wanted to see. Very conveinent. Staff was freindly and rooms were clean. We would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
They definitely take care if you here... You can forget your toothbrush. It's ok. This was close to everywhere we wanted to go and the price was excellent. They have the best showers in SLO.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is comfortable. The cleanliness though sucks. There was toothpaste smeared on the wall next to the sink. There was gum stuck to the night stand. On the day we checked in some spilled Fruit Loops on the stairs outside the entrance to the hotel. Two days later when we checked out, they were still there on the steps. We had to step over them […] every time we left and returned to the hotel. We saw numerous employees walk over them for three days. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel close to pismo beach"
The hotel is great and so is the breakfast and Sam was very helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"Clean and modern"
The room was very spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable. We requested extra pillows and they were brought to us right away. There is also a great restaurant right next to the hotel called AJ Spurs.Genuine Expedia guest review
this little place is a gem!! close and convenient to numerous things, yet quiet and well maintained. we were very impressed. my only word of advice is to ask questions about teh remote control temperature unit. we spent most of our stay very cold, because there were no directions on how to use it O.o. Even at that, I would not give this place a bad […] review, we loved it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Breakfast could have been better."
The coffee was not very good - I'm not picky but I had to get my morning coffee somewhere else. Breakfast on Sat & Sun was pretty good but on Monday (with fewer guests the night before) they staff did not take the time to offer the diversity of items or keep the hot item pans full like they did on the weekend. Otherwise our stay was pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location to everything"
The stay was perfect, the staff were wonderful. The room was great and the bed was very comfortable. What we did not like was the location of the pool and that there was no gym.Breakfast was ok, mine was cold.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Holiday Inn Express is a fine property"
We were pleased with the hotel and would stay there again. Room was large, very well appointed, and quiet. It was a corner room, and we had a nice view to the mountains to the east. Bed was very nice and the bathroom was beautiful, with granite countertops, jetted tub, and two sinks, which we did not expect. Color scheme was neutral and relaxing. There […] was a flat screen TV with plenty of stations for us to watch. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Although the room was less than a block from the freeway, it was quiet. The building seemed to have good sound proofing--a must for a good night's sleep!!Genuine Expedia guest review
