We had a beach view room on the first floor. Loved the view and being able to open the door and hear the ocean. Location is amazing! The room itself was very nice, pretty comfy bed, nice shower/bathroom. Decent breakfast.

I knew the hotel was under construction but I didn't realize the extent of it. The lounge chairs and fire pits on the first floor were not set up yet. On memorial day weekend that would have been a nice feature. Their was 1 fire put on the third floor balcony that was always over run with kids so we didn't get to enjoy it. No hot tub. Check in and breakfast were in actual hotel rooms. For the amount of construction going on I feel like I over paid.

Also our room had a door that lead to the next room over so every time the little kid next door scream/cried we were able to hear it. We got woken up several times in the middle of the night and early morning. We asked to move and they said they couldn't move us. We actually had to go buy ear plugs so we could get some sleep. I am not sure if I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Make sure your room doesn't have a door to the next room over!

As part of my family vacactioons around California I required a one night hotel because driving from San Diego to Monterey.

So Pismo Beacch was a great option, close to the beach, a small beach town.

About the hotel:
1) Location: Perfect
In front of the beach and a 5 minutes walk to a lot of restaurants

2) Room Size:perfect, I stayed in a room with beach view and 2 beds, comfortable, looks like new, they are working in the hotel and it's looks beautiful.

3) Breakfast: free, american, just the basic.

4) Staff: very friendly.

I payed around $210 for this hotel for 4 persons with breakfast, a private balcony and beach view, is a great option.

5) Other: a premiun outlet really close (5 minute drive) also I really like Woolys to dinning and the town is cute.

We stayed here last minute for one evening. The hotel is undergoing renovations, so check in and the breakfast were not what seemed to be in a permanent location. The room was perfect! Spacious and newly renovated. The location was a short walk to restaurants, bar & shopping. Some rooms even have balconies overlooking the water and pier.

Hotel is on the beach a block from downtown Pismo. My room had a private patio facing the ocean. Two comfortable chairs were provided for the patio. The room was nicely decorated, the beds were comfortable and the TV was large. Free wi-fi. The continental breakfast had a wide variety of options to choose from. There is construction going on but the room was quiet. Check in and out went smoothly.

From the view to the reservation agents, it was a win win. I have styed at Sandcastle over the years, many times, and it is just always a great experience. Right on the beach, a short 3 min walk to the center of town.

Room Tip: Ocean view:)
