"Only good thing to say about this hotel"
Stayed here twice. First stay was chalked up to a bad day maybe. Second time is a clincher. Front desk personnel are rude unfriendly and zero help. Don't ask for any extra towels or wash cloths you only get two. The only good thing about this hotel is location. Next time I'll pay 20 bucks more a night and stay else where

"Worst Hotel Stay Ever"
This hotel was very old, but I realized that when I booked it. It is only a block from the beach which was nice. The one-person staff was not very friendly or welcoming. He gave us the worst room possible. It was located under the stairs and right next to an old ice machine that was so loud my family could not sleep. I went to talk to the front desk at 10:00pm and he told me that "You get what you pay for" and continued to explain to me that Hotels.com only pays them a small amount of money for their rooms etc. (so does that mean my family deserves to be miserable?) He then gave us the key to the room next to the original room and assured us that the ice machine would shut off at midnight. The new room was just as noisy. The ice machine was still running at 1:00in the morning, and did not shut off all night. That and the noisy refrigerator had my 5 year old tossing and turning until she finally fell asleep. This was by far the worst hotel experience in my entire life!

"THIS MOTEL IS HORRIBLE!"
We stayed here for one night and paid a very good price for it, in fact I think the online prices is the same price you would get if you just walked up, which I wish we had done, because we would have never stayed in this motel. We were put in a room under the stair case, @ the end of a hall way, next to the alley and you could here the bowling alley across the way. No phone, no table lamp, no extra blanket or pillow, no closet, no coffee pot, must less a microwave, one wash cloth, hanging over what was a hand rail for handicap or elderly by the toilet. That was the towel rack in the bathroom. One light bulb worked out of three in the ceiling fan. The bed was horribly hard, I didn't sleep all night. My husband ask him if we could have a different room up stairs when we first checked in and he said no we are all booked. That was not the truth, they were not anywhere near booked. The continental breakfast was a joke. It was the smallest muffins I have ever seen, 2 different kinds and coffee so strong it got me buzzed just smelling it, and a pitcher of orange juice, and there was a note on the wall that said "Be considerate of others when taking breakfast items!" That was hilarious!!! The closet was a very small shelf in the middle of the room wall with some hangers underneath and a suitcase rack. It was a handicap room and that is what they give expedia customers who request one bed. The indoor pool was closed , under construction & had bedroom furniture by it!

A little too run down, never mind the toenail clippings on the floor and 80% empty bottle of vodka in the cupboard. You need to be pretty adventurous to give it a go here. If so, it is a nice location.

"pismo spot"
It was a nice place to lay your head at night. It is a little outdated for the price, and the breakfast was not worth it, Coffee, Juice and bite size muffins that's all. If your looking for a getaway and don't mind no Breakfast, then this is the place for you. It was a great spot to get anywhere fast in town.

"Pismo Beach get away"
We wanted to stay in Pismo Beach near the beach. The hotel was only a block away from the ocean and one block away from some fantastic restaurants. We sat at the beach, swam in the ocean, had some great meals and that night we walked out on the pier.

"Okay for one night"
The bathroom floor looked like it had been remodeled. However the rest of the bathroom was old. There were mildew stains in the shower and along the shower door. Faucet in shower very touchy. Could not regulate hot and cold very well. Back of bathroom door was smudged and dirty. Carpet in room looked worn and dingy. The maintenance man greeted us warmly. However the gentleman at the front desk was not very friendly. We acknowledged we were early, but asked if we could check in. He never looked up from his computer game. He directed us to return in 30 minutes for check-in. When we returned for check-in, he held the same demeanor. Never looked up to acknowledge us. Simply asked for my ID and a credit card without looking at us. Finally made eye contact when handing us the key. If not for the greeting from the maintenance man, we probably would have not stayed here.

"Close to the beach and the city"
My son and I enjoyed our stay. It was very close to the beach and to downtown. Only recommendation that I would have is to try and make the towels s little softer. Other than that the beds were very comfortable. Plan on making reservations real soon to visit again. I cannot rate the staff because I never had any interaction with them. Had a late arrival and picked up key from night drop box.

We had a great stay at the Ocean Breeze Hotel. It's in a central location, close to shops, restaurants, and bars. Our room was directly next to the office, so we had a beach view out of our front door/window. Clean room and bathroom. The bed was a bit uncomfortable but we didn't mind too much. Great water pressure in the bathroom. I would stay here again!

Went to show them my confermation number and they blamed it on hotels.com! Asked her well do you have a room for me he rudely said I don't know probaly not. Did not care that we just drove over 2 hours. After she found my reservation , When going over everything she said it all fast and like she could care that I'm guest staying at their location! They have so many random chargers for things you feel like you have to clean the room completly before leaving! I will not stay here again I'll be staying at a differnt hotel for now on.

"Very cheap room, very old"
The price looked good, but the hotel was awful. There was no TV guide or channel guide. The front desk did nit have one and said they never have them, just channel surf for what you want! The breakfast Buffett was skimpy at best. One English muffin, two pieces of wheat bread, one piece of white bread, and 6 mini banana nut muffins. Coffee and juice, were the best on the table. Even the jam was in a squirt bottle. There was a toaster. We stayed in #3 and couldn't get wifi. We spent a lot of time in the lobby where the wifi was best. All in all one big inconvenience.

Not a good experience, I made two separate reseversations one for me and my husband & one for friends. When we get there they only have one room. The owner is the person we were dealing with and he said there was nothing he could do for us, was very insencetive to there mistake. What ever happened to customer service? I also left my glasses there and when I called the person answering the phone was not very helpful at all. What should have been a nice weekend turned into an unpleasant experience.

The motel is conveniently located near the beach. This was the only positive for us. The room was filthy. Wi-fi didn't work in our room - we sat outside the office each time for a signal. Breakfast consisted of a jug of orange juice, muffins and bread with a toaster in the reception area - needless to say we didn't eat it. Overall bad experience for us.

"Close but not comfy"
The hotel was convenient to the beach and the stores. Although the website showed a pool, it was broken. In order to use the Wi-Fi you had to stand outside, and if you were lucky, it connected. It became the guest joke when we saw each other standing outside. The rooms have no A/C, but each room had ceiling fans. Luckily it wasn't really warm during my stay. My room had a sofa that made out into a bed; however, the springs on the sofa were extremely worn out. Thus, my kids chose to sleep on the floor. This was my first time to pay the price and rent a suite in a hotel. The suite at this hotel was disappointing.

Hotel is just steps away from the beach.But quality of the room and the service was not worth the $130 I paid. Not sure where they took the pictures posted on the hotel.com website, but my room certainly didn't look anything like that! Room had a stuffy bad body odor kind of smell. Very small and basic room. Free breakfast was nothing great- some muffins and bread that didnt look too fresh. The only reason I would stay here again would be if I wanted to stay close to the beach and if the other hotels were much more expensive

"If you want to be were the action is, stay hear"
This is a slightly funky, quasi-remodeled motel very close to the Pismo Beach pier. What I loved about this motel is that it is simple, clean and very well located. No issues with our free parking and very clean. The Wifi was a bit tricky to set up, but once established it worked fine. There is no air conditioning and the only problem with that was the air conditioning would block out the sound of other guests coming and going from the motel as well as the sounds of traffic passing on the street. Any place you stay where you leave the windows open as we did due to a lack of air conditioning would have experienced the same thing, regardless of where they stayed in that general area. The Old West Cinnamon rolls are amazing. The Splash Cafe always had a super long line and I'm not a patient person. Moondoggies and the taffy store are great local retailers and you can find just about everything you need at the liquor store right around the corner. This is not fancy but that is the charm. I would stay here again but would hope that it would be a bit more affordable. It was honestly one of the most expensive rooms I have ever booked.

"Mostly good"
Location was great, very close to the beach and shops/restaurants, but not enough parking. Once we found a spot, we didn't move the car for the remainder of the trip- which was possible due to the great location. Room was clean, had a fridge, but no fan in bathroom and no a/c. A/C not usually necessary in these coastal motels, but on a hot weekend, like the weekend we stayed, it would have made it a lot nicer. On the first night the shower temperature was super whacky, but on the second night it was consistent.

Was able to see ocean from our room. The room was clean and comfortable with one queen and one double bed, shower, tv, fridge and microwave. Decor was very nice. Sheets was half poly, half cotton with some stains. Seating area near window with table and two chairs. The walls were little bit thin, but was sleeping thru the night without any disturbance from neighbours. Complimentary breakfast was very bad - just some small sugary muffins, so we cooked oatmeal that we brought in the microwave and made tea in the electric kettle that we brought.
