The room was clean, nice, and comfortable (love the citrus smelling soap/shampoo), and the lobby definitely has character. But what impressed us the most was the smiley faces of the entire staff, including a male employee who brought some items up to our room. We felt very welcome, and will definitely return if in the area in the future.

Enjoyed our stay! We chose to stay in the historic section of the hotel. They have updated these rooms to be most charming. The bedding is quite comfortable. It makes sleeping in a real treat. We will be back!

I love staying in the historic section of this hotel. Our room was clean and quaint. The views are beautiful. The accommodations, like the swimming pool, workout room and the gardens are all beautiful and well kept. If you don't like older construction and fixtures, they have a five story tower with well kept modern rooms and great views.

We arrived here and we're so pleased to check in after an awful stay at hotel élan in San Jose. The rooms were huge, well kept, clean and welcoming! We felt very safe!

Price for hotel was reasonable. It was in a great location for our needs. Rooms were huge and comfortable and quiet. The staff was hospitable. I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking to not want to stay in the chain hotels.

The room walls, carpet were absolutely filthy. I addressed my concerns with the front dest and they indicated that there we no other rooms that we could switch to. They also indicated that since "booked" on Priceline nothing could be done. We left after one night into our 2 night stay.

After wanting to stay at this hotel for a long time, we finally got to book a reservation; so glad we did. The hotel is gorgeous, immaculate, restaurant food (both breakfast and dinner) was plentiful and prepared wonderfully. Shout out to Franz, the manager, who accommodated us with parking for our RV, especially when two other hotels in the area...

Exceeded our expectations except for pet charge. The grounds were beautiful, pool a little cool but it looked good, and parking was perfect. Staff was certainly cordial and accommodating. We'll be tempted to make the Inn our future Pismo Beach hotel. Thanks
