We weren't sure about it until we got there. We loved our stay. Great staff, especially front desk and breakfast. The ocean views were spectacular. The pool and jacuzzi were great even in January. Very nice, modern and clean rooms at a reasonable price.

Is there a daily “resort fee” or “facilities fee”?
No, I don’t believe there was anything like that to pay

Do you have handicap accessible rooms with an ocean view?
Our room was easily accessible from the parking and had a great view. I believe that was Room 412 or 421, maybe. Anyway, there are two levels of guest rooms: those direct from parking lot which is upstairs, and another level below. The pool and lounge areas are on the lower level, but I believe there is an elevator.

Sorry I don’t know. Best to check directly with the hotel.

What is a "standard" room? Do you still get an ocean view?
The ocean front rooms have amazing 180 degree views of the ocean. The other rooms have at least a partial view of the ocean.

The beach area below the Inn is accessed by a short but steep trail. I have seen many families at this beach. If the children are very young I would recommend the main beach at Pismo. It is just a brief drive away and is long an flat.
