Disappointing service.
The accommodation was great. The service we received from the staff at the accommodation was terrible!

Cottage Inn By The Sea
Loved our stay here. Was only for one night and we wished it was longer. Lots of effort gone into making this place look good and homely, including very easy to use gas fires in the rooms. Nice pool and jacuzzi spa area. Breakfast was the usual fare, but nice terrace area to enjoy it and real glassware, cups and cutlery to opt for, instead of awful plastic disposable items - thank you!! Stunning setting. Saw dolphins swimming in the bay from the shared terrace area. Walked along the beach to town with our two kids (8 and 11), and they loved jumping in the waves. Ate at the seafront in town at Woolies - highly recommended as great setting, plus very tasty food in generous portions for around $10-$12. Was nervous about the freeway at the front, but wasn't too bad (no sirens, just general traffic rumblings) - we just had to make our minds up that we'd ignore it and it was fine. Wished we'd realised the firepits were useable in the early mornings as we missed out in the evening and being warm watching sunrise would have been spectacular. One request - please remove the plastic cutlery and cups from breakfast altogether (or at worst, make them available 'on request') so that people don't take them by accident. Thank you! Would happily recommend.

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.
