We just arrived here. Marvellous location! What a sight!!! And yes, no pool. But we were lucky. It's 20 degrees outside and sunshine (in February). We have been welcomed very friendly and got a bottle of red wine for inconvenience (for no pool and waiting for room). Enjoy your stay!

We stopped here on our way down the coast road to LA. Good location, plenty of parking and easy walking distance to nearby shops, bars and restaurants. I can imagine in summer season the location would score highly, being located right on the beautiful beach. There were improvement works taking place when we stayed and this wasn't mentioned when booking...

We came here based on TripAdvisor reviews, and had seen beautiful pictures of the jacuzzi facing the pacific. However, the hotel is undergoing remodeling, and the jacuzzi is gone. I guess we should have checked the hotel website first, were there is no mention of a jacuzzi. Lesson learned: Always double check the info posted on Hotels.com with the actual...

We have been visiting pismo yearly for the last 10 years and always stay at the Sandcastle Inn. The sheets and towels always smell clean. The hotel constantly puts $$ back into the hotel with renovations. Best location that Pismo has to offer with beach access just a few steps from the hotel.

Stayed here for a girls weekend and had a great time. Staff was friendly. Small breakfast bar included: waffles, cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, coffee. Great location. This place is on the beach and a 5 minute walk to the pier. Lots of good places to eat within a mile or so walking distance. There's a really cool outside...

Sandcastle Inn made our two-day excursion to the Central Coast a real gem. We were greeted at the hotel lobby by an assistant manager who gave us a room with a great view of the beach, and at a lower price than we had booked online. Sandcastle Inn is located right on the beautiful stretch of sandy beach in Pismo...
