Dolphin Cove=Convenience and Quality
This motel was an ideal place to stay in Pismo Beach. It gives you quick access to the pier as well as the shops and restaurants. I liked the quality and convenience of Dolphin Cove. It smelled clean upon entering and my room was comfortable. The wifi worked great and the area was well lit so I felt safe. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to Pismo.
