Room was clean & nice! Definitely love staying at this hotel! Only downside to our stay, we didn’t get the chance to use the fire pits. They have fire pits that can be used by guests & we tried to use one but they were all occupied. The fire pits turn on for about 20 minute increments then they shut off. We waited for about an hour in hopes we could get one after other guests left, but nope. I get they they may be first come first serve, but it’s common courtesy for other folks staying here.

Nice place to stay on north end of Pismo Beach.
Spyglass Inn is on the north end of Pismo Beach & it is the quiet end of town. It has great views of the Pacific Ocean over the cliffs. There a few restaurants close to the Inn including in house Spyglass Inn restaurant which is good place eat. The rooms are nice with comfortable beds & small desk to put your laptop on. There wasn't a in-room safe if you need to hold valuables temporarily if you need it. The bathrooms are clean for the room we where in. One minor complain is the toilets aren't deep, I mean from front to back, at least for the room we were in so if you are taller person that maybe a issue as can't yourself fully seated. The Inn is close to the water but you do need to walk to over the cliff path before you get down to the beach below the cliffs. In short, this very nice place to stay if you are in the Pismo Beach area.
