Nice hotel. Staff very friendly and we had a lovely room overlooking the sea. Pismo Beach itself wasn’t really a destination we’d visit again but was a good stopover onto LA.

Beautiful place and the rooms are fantastic

Cottage Inn By The Sea
Did not meet expectations. Fridge noisy and running almost constantly until I adjusted thermostat. Noise from the freeway next to the hotel. Room rather soulless without the cottagey charm I was expecting. No air-conditioning and the rather large pilot light on the gas fire was heating the room. Poor breakfast and the oatmeal was cold, watery and gritty. I was told to put it in the microwave. Pleasant area with seats and fire pits overlooking the ocean.

Lovely place to stay, recommended to all
Lovely hotel in a beautiful location - a shame we were only staying one night! Breakfast was particularly good & considerably better than other hotels we stayed at in California.
