We have stayed at The Inn at the Cove on three different occasions now. Each time we have been very happy with the whole experience. Our rooms and the views are always great! I am so happy we came across this great place to stay. We usually end up in Pismo Beach once a year. We will always consider this...

Every room is oceanfront with spectacular views. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Rooms are new, very clean and welcome basket was perfect. It's our number one choice in SLO, Avila, Pismo area. Love to sit on the balcony and watch the waves and sunsets. Pets are welcome too.

Great place for a romantic weekend getaway. The view from the room was extremely beautiful. We heard ocean wave crashing when you opened the door, but when the door was closed it was very peaceful. Recommended second floor so that you will not hear footsteps

I can't say enough wonderful things about Inn At The Cove. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The staff was cheerful and pleasant to deal with. There were double swing chairs between the buildings. A walkway along the bluff provides easy access to nearby restaurants and childrens play park. All these make for a marvelous play to stay, but...

We found a great rate. We probably wouldn't have tried it out had it not been for the rate. It's walking distance to Pismo's pier, 4.25 miles round trip. The breakfast was awesome; we expected the typical continental breakfast. However, eggs, bacon, waffles, etc. were included.

My wife and I stayed here for one night as part of a weekend get-a-way. What a great property! The whole property appears to have been recently renovated. The staff was very cordial and welcoming at check-in. The hotel is built on a cliff that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. Every room has breath- taking views of the ocean. Our room...

Quietand many special touches that spoke to good service. Good location, nice room and good breakfast. We are from Oregon, but if we are in the neighborhood again, we'll come back. Good spot for an anniversary weekend.

Although we consciously went over our budget for a few days, this hotel is worth every penny spent. The rooms are ample, spotless, well equipped and have the most spectacular ocean views imaginable. The rooms have small balconies overlooking the coastline with waves breaking against the rugged shore literally a few meters below you (if the sound doesn't sooth you...

Excellent hotel. The room was very clean and staff very friendly. Matt, at the front desk, was extremely pleasant and made check in very easy. The staff in the breakfast room were super nice. Wish I had asked them what their names were. The young gentleman was very helpful and friendly. Our view from our room was great.
