    Very noisy room we got a corner suit for 2 night was $950 didn't sleep one night told the front desk all they said was ok couldn't believe they didn't at least try to make it right rooms where nice but if you can't sleep what's the point .

    We stayed here for a week and staying that long you really get a sense of the place it's a great place to stay staff is nice , it has a place area, play structure, ping pong, corn hole, big chess/checkers, the kids love it! Easy access to the beach

    With the pandemic, traveling was alittle scary thought. But the light house suites. Was amazin! Very very clean! I even saw people cleaning the play areas. For the children. I was very impressed. Beyond what I expected. I will forsure be staying at the light house suites again and highly recommend them

    Oriented around families with kids. Clean and spacious suites surrounding a central play area. Oddly, on the cliffs, but lost rooms blocked from views by the few rooms that have them. Still, only a few yards away from the cliffside path and the stairs to the beautiful beach.
    In fall '20, during pandemic distancing, breakfast is replaced by a generally unimpressive selection of breakfast items intended for guests to being back to their rooms. The frozen tamales, which you prepare in your room microwave, are an exception, and quite tasty.

    Loved the hotel rooms. They were nicely decorated, very clean, and super spacious. Definitely would recommend!

  • Oct 22, 2020 by Vivian

    The room is spacious. Take-out breakfast is included since COVID-19.
    If you don't want someone cleanings your room since COVID-19, they will give you a bit discount.
    But if you still want to someone come cleaning your room. It is still fine.
    It is one of best family hotel.

    Decided to book the King Oceanfront Suite for our mini vacation anniversary due to the location and size of the room (950 sq ft). We arrived earlier than expected and called to see if we could check in early. After a brief hold, they told us to head on over which we did. Layout of the suite was nice with the bedroom in the front to the right off the entrance and the living room, kitchenette, and second bathroom in the back with a balcony that overlooked the entire beach. Requested to be on the top floor so we could have a great view and we did if you looked off to the left but directly in front of us was a big palm tree right smack in the way (sigh). The room was clean and comfortable, but the bed was high (like I needed a running start to jump in) and firm so had a hard time falling asleep. We also happened to be there during an unusual heat wave (100 degrees) and when we got back to our room later that day, we realized the AC was not working. Maintenance was sent up right away and after checking, they informed us that the AC unit was broken in our room and the room next door. After talking to the front desk, they offered to bring up a couple of fans and informed us they contacted the AC Company who would be coming out the next day. We were ok with that for the night but the next day they were unable to fix the AC as the part needed was on backorder. We asked to be moved to another room at that point but as luck would have it, all oceanfront suites were sold out. They did offer to move us to a courtyard room, but we declined and dealt with as best we could. Property is very nice, and the grounds well maintained. All employees we talked to were very friendly and management ended up giving us some credit towards the bill for the inconvenience which we appreciated. Overall a pleasant place to stay in Pismo.

    This place was absolutely amazing. Upon my search to find a hotel that would allow for one night only, I stumbled upon this place. What a find! Celebrated my birthday here. We stayed in the two bedroom suite ,there's two bathrooms and a shared balcony. As grown adults staying with each other this really works out!   Aspen was very helpful at the front desk.  I appreciated that she allowed me to check in and called my cellphone when the room was ready.  The room was very clean. Oh and I can't forget the "to go"breakfast!! There were gluten free options and TAMALES!!!

    Great for families. Good play area and easy access to the beach

  • Sep 04, 2020 by Jeremy Greulich

    Great clean room. Super close to the beach. Fun activities around. Highly recommend.

    The location was perfect, i give it a 10. Right off the freeway. The premises is very clean, welcoming and the the workers were very hospitable. We had room 3308 and the view was great. I have paid less for nice hotels but the view, it doesnt get better than this for the price. Nice balcony with table amd chairs. They have an ice machine right off elevator. They have a play area over parking structure. It was just very quaint. They also had a pool. I would stay here again! You know i might just book it again soon.

  • Jul 18, 2020 by Estevan Gomez

    Do not stay here during this pandemic! They do not clean their rooms as they should be in these times we are in. The quality control is at the lowest level!!!!!!! Beware!

  • Jul 13, 2020 by Mike Osthimer

    My wife and I have always enjoyed staying here and this time we brought the entire family along including grandkids. The view from the oceanfront balcony is beautiful. The rooms are spacious and the decor is modern and up to date. The beds are not very comfortable for the price point. The hotel asked for a review upon arrival and I filled it out based on previous stays. I spoke too soon. This trip had issue after issue. The cleanliness of the room came into question when emptying water from an ice chest just after arriving. Noticed a large brown clump of hair in the drain about 8” long. Disgusting to say the least. Next I took the kids to the play area above the parking garage. Thought this would be the big hit. If you want to play ping pong you need to purchase ping pong balls from the dispenser. The badminton rackets were broke and there were no golf balls around for the putting greens. The flag was broken on one of the holes just laying in the cup. The hit was the merry go round and the playground equipment. Our kids room a/c didn’t function properly and was uncomfortable in the back bedroom. The staff maintenance department was unable to fix it and the hotel offered to reduce our bill by $50.00. I’ll let the reader decide the worth of a hotel room without air conditioning when the occupant is a woman seven months pregnant. The worst part of that was the front desks response, “yeah, we have been having reports of problems with that room” which left me to believe this wasn’t the first issue with the a/c in that unit. The time with our kids and grandkids was great. Just wish the accommodations where better this stay. Not the hotel we were accustomed too. It got us looking into a hotel just a couple of doors down for our next stay. It’s still a good hotel, just not a great stay this trip.,

  • Jul 01, 2020 by Melina

    My family loved our stay. We stayed in a family suite. It was perfect for us. My kids are 4, 7 and 8 years old. They loved the play area and just wanted to spend all our time there. The beach is within walking distance. We will definitely return.

  • Jun 18, 2020 by FaZit G35

    Very kid friendly. If you have a family this is the place to be. They have amazing prices and its on the hill over looking the pier and ocean. They have a lot of entertainment for everyone. Loved it.

  • Jun 15, 2020 by Michael Ayala

    This place is perfect. Wonderful view of the beach and the accommodations are great if you have dogs. The room was spacious and clean. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Jun 11, 2020 by Michael D

    We stayed here as a family just after they re-opened after the pandemic lockdown and the front desk woman was very helpful and efficient getting us a very nice suite booked for our family. The rooms were spacious, in excellent condition and very clean. All the facilities were in excellent condition and the views of the beautiful beach were amazing. Staff were all wearing masks to stay safe and healthy. Guests at the hotel should do the same, so the staff and hotel guests all stay healthy during this strange time.

  • Mar 12, 2020 by Jackie Effisimo

    This hotel was very nice with well kept grounds. Many rooms have a beautiful view of the central Coast. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The play area is great for children 3+. The breakfast was really good with hot waffles, scrambled eggs,sausage, hot and cold cereal, fresh fruit, juice coffee. There's indoor & outdoor seating available.

  • Mar 02, 2020 by Katelynn Mazzola

    My family absolutely LOVED our stay here. If you have children and are looking for a place in Pismo Beach, then look no further. My only regret is that we didn't stay here longer! The service and complimentary breakfast was great! There is a playground area which is great for the kids while the adults can enjoy themselves with a beverage and a great view of the ocean. The rooms were exceptionally clean and our suite was plenty big for our family of four. Would highly recommend and given the opportunity would definitely return!

  • Mar 01, 2020 by SD OB Fam

    We normally stay next door at Shore Cliff. We thought we’d try this hotel this time. The room we received was a family suite in the street building. Sliver of an ocean view. We aren’t sure if family suites are all in this building, but ocean view rooms are nicer. We always stay on the top floor in hotels, which was requested here. However, we had a very, very strange encounter with the female receptionist at check-in and we feel like this is the reason for the bottom floor room, but who knows.
    Negatives: People above us had child who ran, jumped & dropped things from 7pm-12am then started again at 5am, which woke our 3 children up. NOT okay. Since it was a 1 night stay we dealt with the issue, but we would have required a different room after 1 night if the stay was longer. Rooms have limited sound proofing. Patios are small. No door on front bedroom. 1 toilet was old, other was new. Bathroom sinks are dated. Carpets are dated. Beds aren’t very comfy (but not horrible). Door locks are shady.
    Positives: Play area outside is great for kids.
    The room is good sized for families and has 2 bedrooms and bathrooms. No couch though, just 1 chair in each bedroom and 1 table with 2 chairs in big bedroom. Odd furniture layout for families. No where to eat or sit together. Nice plantation shutters that close tightly. Ample pillows. Good air conditioning.
    Pool is heated. Breakfast area is large. Grounds are clean. Walking path is nice and leads to beach. Most of the employees are very nice (like we mentioned, weird experience with receptionist at check-in). Ample parking. Close to downtown, food, shopping.

  • Feb 12, 2020 by Henry Garcia

    Great place for families, beautiful rooms, awesome views. Try to stay on the top floor because it gets kind of loud and bothersome with people running around if your on the 1st or 2nd floor. Great staff.

  • Feb 04, 2020 by Kathie Hernandez

    Outstanding hotel suites. Very clean spacious rooms. Gorgeous ocean views. Fireplace, kitchens, patio deck, dog friendly. Excellent customer service by front desk. Timothy was so helpful and professional. Continental breakfast was super good, good safe parking. A must stay if your in area.

  • Jan 11, 2020 by Emmanuel Ramirez

    We stayed here for a night while on our way home to San Francisco. The place is huge, comfortable and warm. We slept very comfortably. The staff is great and very responsive to our needs. They also have a complimentary breakfast with waffles and strawberries. Highly recommended!

  • Dec 29, 2019 by Karibu Nyaggah

    Wow, what a fitting place for families. Whether you're driving down the coast and just need a place where the kids can play while catching a spectacular sunset, or you want to make this the home base of your Pismo Beach trip, can't go wrong with a plethora of activities suitable for kids and grownups. Spend a night or two here - the splurge is definitely worth it. Or longer.

  • Dec 07, 2019 by ANYSE GOAD

    Absolutely love this place. It is so nice. The breakfast offers a good variety. The play deck is a great place for young and old alike. We've come here many times over the past 10 years.

  • Dec 02, 2019 by Sarmento Housewife

    Our family suite was so awesome. The kids loved having their own room and we loved having ours as well. The hotel is super clean and the staff was very polite and helpful. They even had extra things in the room like ear plugs and q-tips. The breakfast was delicious and there were so many options. Also a short walk down to the beach. My favorite part was the large outdoor play area with a play structure for the kids, large outdoor chess/checkers set, ping pong and more. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the pool or hot tub but they had a view of the ocean. We can't wait to come back down this way to enjoy it again.

  • Dec 01, 2019 by Frances B.

    Never disappointed! The staff both on the phone and in-person are exceptionally welcoming and helpful. We stayed in an ocean view, pet-friendly room on the ground floor. Great insulation as there were pets all down the row. The room did not show any signs of dog use and did not smell of room freshener (as some places do to cover up dog smells) or other odors. For that, not only will I thank the hotel cleaning staff but owners as well for having well-mannered pups! It's super helpful to have the tiled area, which is where we kept the dogs when we went out. Tip: We brought our own dog gate to keep them out of the bedroom area and it worked great to keep the carpets from smelling like our dirt-loving terrier for the next guests. Congratulations on the fantastic updated rooms too! They are comfortable and quite soundproof -- well-done everyone!

    Great for kids with the playground. Great breakfast. Good beach access with just a bit of a walk. I thought the room would be a little nicer (family suite) but were had a great time and dog friendly!!! Will return

  • Nov 16, 2019 by Kailey S.

    Great prices for a great place.  We stayed here in a pinch because we were visiting family last minute and we had our dog.  The rooms were so spacious and the facilities were so nice for families.  We will definitely come back.

  • Nov 13, 2019 by Mary Murray

    Spacious rooms, great location & decent breakfast. Comfy rooms but they need new mattresses as they are a little hard. We had them add a mattress topper which really helped. Picture is our view from room. Would stay again

  • Nov 02, 2019 by Sheri Baker

    You might think this play area is for the kids but there is something for all ages including comfortable seating for seniors. Rooms and service are great. The gallery serves up a nice variety at breakfast. Coffee is spectacular and I'm addicted to their mini round waffles!

    I can't sing enough praises about Pismo LS! We came in on a whim after deciding we weren't ready for vacation to be over & only needed a room for one night. Travelling with two teenagers who are both 6ft tall is always fun when it comes to bedding. I was so surprised to find that PLS had a suite with one king and two queens going for nearly the same rate other hotels had for two doubles. The room was divided and separated by a door, there were two bathrooms, two sinks, two TVs, we could not have been happier. The staff was so friendly and treats us as if we were staying for a month versus just one night, they were just as eager to please an overnight guest who honestly wasn't spending that much money. I truly couldn't believe how good a deal we were getting. I still cant! The room was great, but also there is a path behind PLS and the other hotels along the coastline that leads directly onto the beach, less than a 5 minute walk. Breakfast was also good (didn't care for the sausage), the grounds were impeccable, I couldn't have asked for better and didnt expect anything close to what we got, for the price we paid. Will definitely be back whenever we are in pismo or SLO. HIGHLY RECOMMEND! p.s. just remembered the sleep rating below- it's 4 out of 5 only because the bed was a tad firm for my liking, but that's because I'm used to a memory foam. That was the only affecting sleep, we didnt hear a peep unless we opened the balcony sliders to hear the waves crash.

  • Oct 25, 2019 by Amreen Fatima

    Everything just amazing. All stars . A beautifull amazing view. Amazing service . Had a wonderful family time

  • Oct 20, 2019 by Eric Dakin

    Huge rooms with views of the beach and ocean. Our room had a living room w/ kitchenette, 2 full bathrooms, a bedroom, sectional couch, accent chair, 2 seater table and furnished balcony. Big kudos for being pet friendly. We had our large dog with us and our room accommodated her with ease.

  • Oct 16, 2019 by Red K.

    Loved my stay here. The ocean view. Wonderfully clean room. Breakfast every morning! Lots of parking. Staff were wonderful!! I'm going back in December! Recommend this place highly!

  • Oct 02, 2019 by Anita Lavey

    Great place to stay. Right on the most secluded and beautiful beach on the coast. Even though I had to walk two hotels down to use workout room, it was a lovely walk, and the staff were very nice and helpful.

  • Sep 18, 2019 by Anjeanettte Guerrero

    I got a great deal on line. I don't believe I could have afforded this place otherwise. The suites are amazing no matter where you are. There is a playground here for children. A gigantic chessboard or checkerboard for adults and teens. They also have board games available. If you walk towards the beach and make a right on the bridge at night you will find the pelicans look like Tara dactyls in the sky. The breakfast was awesome. I felt more than happy while here. I would recommend it to everyone. They're close to to monarch butterflies as well as being close to the pismo pier .

  • Sep 13, 2019 by Michael Belous

    Great place
    Next to the beach
    Have a pool and an entertainment area including giant chess board, ping pong, mini golf and badminton.
    Big rooms, friendly accommodating stuff
    What else do you need

  • Sep 01, 2019 by Ben F.

    Room was big. I wasn't expecting a two bed room to actually have two separate rooms. Each room had its own bathroom & tv which was nice. The place was very clean. I was impressed that the shower heads were even clean. Beds were comfy. Had fridge, microwave, tv had plenty of channels to choose from, little balcony with table & chairs, coffee maker and the property was well maintained. Employees were friendly. Front desk guy @ 8pm 8/25/19 shift was so helpful to us, shout out to him(sorry didn't get your name). Pool & jacuzzi were small but who needs that when you have a whole ocean in front of you. Pet friendly place..they have a grassy area right next to the great view of the ocean where your dog and do his business. Provided pet blanket, bowl & treats. Breakfast was just ok nothing to wake up early for. Basic muffins, fruit, yogurt, waffles, eggs, sausage (weird taste), ect... They also had a walk way that takes you all the way down to the beach. From there you can just walk to the pier and enjoy all the shops/restaurants.

  • Aug 28, 2019 by Allen Mathew

    Great hotel by the beach. The hotel had games for the kids and lots of space to sit and relax. The walk along the beach in the morning was nice. A very enjoyable experience. Wish we had stayed one more day.

  • Aug 28, 2019 by Lillian L.

    Its very rare to find a place that accommodates kids and pets so well. our dog loved the oceanfront balcony and our kids loved the play deck. the room and hotel grounds were impeccable and service was friendly. our suite was gigantic and updated. outdoor seating for breakfast so our dog could join was clean and dry at 7am. we had a wonderful time, thank you!

  • Aug 24, 2019 by Vivian J.

    We had an amazing stay!!  We had the family suite with 2 rooms and master bathrooms which was great with kids. They had their own area and loved it!!  The rooms had very new modern furniture and the bathrooms had tubs and nice shower.   The pool was a huge hit with the kids and was a good temperature.  They have a decent amount of seats and towels. They also have a hot tub which was super nice!  Next to the pool is a cute kid's play area with play structure, ping pong table, badminton court, bean bag toss, etc. Great fun for the entire family!   They have a complimentary breakfast every morning with homemade waffles, eggs, yogurt, toast, muffins, bagels, fruit, cereal, milk, juice and coffee.  OMG it was all so good and the staff did a great job getting food stocked and clean.   The beach was just a short walk down the hill and it was not crowded at all.  They had tons of parking there which was nice. It was a short drive to downtown to go grab easy lunch or dinner.  I loved it there and we will be back!!

  • Aug 04, 2019 by Vanessa Gutierrez

    Great views! Super clean spacious rooms. Staff amazing! My children loved breakfast. Nice pool, their playground for the kids so awesome! Super quick walk to the beach

  • Jul 30, 2019 by Elizabeth Lopez

    so beautiful and way nicer than expected I took my parents with us and my 2 yr old and we stayed in the family suite so with the price we paid $388 with everything. they provided great breakfast and the pool was heated . the only bad is the walk two hotels over to get beach access but so worth it. will definately stay here again especially when we take family . we were comfortable sharing the family suite with them.

  • Jul 23, 2019 by Estevan Gomez

    We have stayed here over 5 times and the staff is always the best. The rooms are clean and a BIG I recommend the king suite ocean view. The kids will enjoy the play structure, pool and to top off everything they have a GREAT complimentary breakfast which is a big plus for a family visiting. Thanks again Pismo Lighthouse we will be back!!!!

  • Jul 21, 2019 by A G.

    We stayed in a double room with partial ocean view. The view was nice and the room was very clean and modern. The windows and sound insulation were excellent. We stayed on the top floor and couldn't hear any noise from units on either side. There was a nice courtyard for the kids and adults to play. We had such a nice family trip here. We'll be back.

  • Jul 16, 2019 by sarahlond...

    Stayed here for 2 nights as part of my road trip with my teenage sons and this was definitely the best place we stayed - and made even better by Grace, the owner - knowledgeable, helpful and funny. The rooms are beautifully decorated and furnished, with little finishing touches that most places don't think of. Grace even gave us a little welcome bag when we arrived, complete with notepad, pen, torches, etc. Location is less than 2 minute walk to the beach and the same to the local bars and restaurants. Pismo itself is a lovely little seaside town. Really couldn't fault Beach Comber Inn at all. Grace, we will be back and we will stay longer! Thanks Sarah, Josh and Toby

  • Jul 08, 2019 by Robert G.

    We have stayed here numerous times over the years and thoroughly enjoyed it every time. It is a great place for families with the activity deck which includes volleyball, miniature golf, a play structure and an oversized chess/checker board. The pool and jacuzzi are always a hit as well. I am most impressed by the overall condition of the property. The rooms are immaculate and well appointed. The exterior and pool is very well kept. Staff is friendly. This stay I was greeted by Ivy the text concierge. After checking in I received a text asking if I needed anything and to reply if I did. The next morning I received a text to ask how my stay had been. I replied and received a thank you. I then received a text allowing me to check out via text and receive my Guest Folio via email. I really liked this added text feature. We initially stayed here when our five children were small as there are not many places available for large families. Our kids are adults now but our youngest daughter was accompanying my wife and I back from a family gathering and we decided to stay in Pismo. I asked if there were any preferences on where to stay and my daughter said, "The Lighthouse Suites. We had so much fun playing the games there when we were small and it's a really nice place." And so it was.

  • Jul 03, 2019 by Teppo S.

    Perfect for Families! What an amazing place with so many fun activities. Kids play area, putting green, ping pong tables, and a lot more just a few steps from our door. Not to forget the pool and the jacuzzi. The suite was amazing too with a balcony and a view to the ocean. With a separate bedroom and two bathrooms it easily accommodated a family with four kids. This was hands down the best of all places we stayed at during our family road trip!

  • Jul 02, 2019 by Octavia M.

    My family and I have stayed here numerous times, and we're likely to return in the future because we love this place so much! The rooms are very nice-- comfortable beds, nice and functional showers, bright decor, overall good layout... what more could we ask for? The pool is great too. The main pool is heated to the perfect temperature, and the hot tub, of course, is luxurious. Next to the pool, also, is a wonderful play/entertainment area that contains ping pong tables, a play structure, a badminton court, and more! So much fun for families. I should also mention the spectacularity that is the complimentary breakfast. There is a vast selection of foods to choose from, from toast and yogurt to eggs and waffles. Pismo Lighthouse Suites definitely has one of the best complimentary breakfasts I've ever enjoyed in my experiences at different hotels. Overall, this place is a great vacation spot close to the ocean that will without a doubt provide you and your family with loads of fun and happy memories to look back on!

  • Jun 29, 2019 by Coffi Salonen

    Great time...always something to do. Older style but very nice and very clean. Best staff, laid back, free cookies and games for the kids. Right near the beach . Our king suite with sofa bed was HUGE. Our oceanfront suite was worth every penny.

  • Jun 23, 2019 by Robert B.

    On our way up the coast to SF. We made our first stop in Pismo. We had the 2 bedroom family suite with a partial ocean view. The room was awesome and the hotel itself was great. Fun play area for the kids with coffee and hot chocolate available in the lobby next to the rec area. Short walk to the beautiful beach that wasn't overly crowded. All in all this hotel exceeded expectations and we would love to go back.

  • Jun 20, 2019 by Heather O.

    THIS PLACE IS AMAZING!!! I came here with a bunch of girls to enjoy pismo and this hotel was the best possible one we could have picked! First of all, the staff was the friendliest people ever! They went above and beyond to help us with anything and everything and had the most welcoming smiles! Never have we experienced such exponential service at a hotel. Thank you to Tim and Madeline!!!! Second, the amenities of the hotel was so extensive! An unreal amount of games to keep you entertained on the courtyard area right above the beach! They have badminton, life size chess, ping pong, corn hole and so much more! Also, board games to play on the beach or in your room! And to top it off...... fresh baked cookies at the front!!!!! Omg best place I've ever experienced!  thanks again for all you did for us to give us the best experience in pismo!!!

  • Jun 17, 2019 by Taylor Nicole Aguilar

    Loved each the rooms I've stayed in. My family and I visit each year and it's great to have a good view of the ocean. Even if you get a room that doesn't include ocean view, the walk outside is still worth it. You have access to a staircase straight down to the beach. It's a huge plus that you don't have to find parking to get to the sand and water.
    Super comfortable and cozy to come back to. Pismo Lighthouse Suites feels like a home away from home! Highly recommend.

  • Jun 17, 2019 by Cualcosa

    Can't say enough about Grace, the charming host, and her beautifully designed and comfortable rooms. It's a gem of a place to stay in Pismo. 1/2 block to the brand new Pismo pier and less than 1/2 block to the restaurant Grace recommended as the "best seafood place in town," Pismo Fish and Chips.

  • Jun 14, 2019 by militrayw...

    Came through Pismo Beach on a birthday trip with my dad. Clean rooms and nice staff. Each room is unique. Easy walking to pier and beach. It is not beach front. Nice small kitchen and comfortable beds. Very quiet.

    Hotel was great, seems well taken care of with clean rooms and a decent breakfast option. Very accommodating of pets with lots of places to take them for potty and entertainment. Very easy beach access

    The Pismo Lighthouse Suites are our home away from home...  We make annual trips to Pismo Beach and ALWAYS make a point to stay at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites.  The property is easy to navigate, clean, updated, and accommodates families and couples alike.  The suites are impeccably clean, updated, and are charmingly decorated.  The buildings sit close to the bluffs and the views are indescribably beautiful!   What REALLY makes Pismo Lighthouse Suites stand apart from all the others is their hospitality.  We cannot stress enough how incredibly polite everyone is.. they go out of their way to make you feel special and welcomed as their guest.  We recently stayed for our anniversary celebration and received a warm welcome and "Congratulations!" from the front desk clerk.. then we got to our room, WOW! We were greeted by a wonderful flower arrangement, an assortment of gourmet chocolates and two beautiful towel swans that created a heart together.  I had arranged for the flowers but did not anticipate what an amazing job they would do.  Their personal touch helped create a lifelong memory.  (My wife cried because she  was so moved)  If you've stayed elsewhere or never visited Pismo Beach... Give Pismo Lighthouse Suites a shot..you will NOT be disappointed.   The whole team at Pismo Lighthouse Suites have created loyal, lifelong guests at our house.. KUDOS!!!

    Everything about this hotel is perfect; the space, the double bathrooms, the decor, the location, the customer service, the family entertainment center, the views.... everything except the beds!!! They are redecorating but my stay last night tells me that the beds were not addressed. I will stay here again and again, but need to find a way to address the comfort of the beds on my own.

    After driving a few hours in heavy fog and rain, we decided to stop for the night in Pismo Beach...normally these stops aren't so impromptu but on our epic PCH road trip from San Diego to San Fran, that's just how we rolled. First of all, this spot was literally on the beach (normally places I don't care to be due to the heavy touristy factor) but this place was an exception. We rolled in late at night and couldn't see much but we heard the waves crashing right in front of us. Awesome!! With six people we played it safe (okay, I played it safe) and booked two rooms. After we checked in and found our rooms I realized that was a big mistake. The rooms were HUGE! Each one had two rooms, two bathrooms, a living room, sofa sleeper. Oh my geez I just paid an extra $300 for nothing. Oh well...we each enjoyed a massive suite and called it a night. The decor had been recently updated as the furniture was new and some fixtures were dated. The bed was comfortable and the spaces were clean too--only thing that matters to me! The view was incredible in the morning--literally right on the ocean! The only thing that was really awful would be the "free breakfast" which was quite...well...terrible. What we thought were breakfast burritos turned out to be bean burritos (who doesn't love a good bean burrito for breakfast?) lol...the "fruit" was a bowl of half frozen berries and really nothing else to speak of. But hey, don't let that part scare you aware. This is a motel style property and it's a great spot to overnight! Bonus: Tons of outdoor ping pong, playground, human chess, etc that would have been fun but it was pouring rain.

  • Apr 28, 2019 by Dslon00

    Rooms are updated and cozy. Innkeeper is a funny lady always with a smile ready. The inn one block from beach with lots of eateries in walking distance. The outside of the inn is unassuming, so rooms are a joy.

    We spent the week of Spring Break at Lighthouse Inn with our two kids (6 & 9 years old) and have nothing but great things to report! The room was spacious and clean, the playground/game area was so fun, daily breakfast was delicious. Pool was small but nice and the walk to the beach was short and breathtaking. We are planning to stay every spring break! Great place for families!

  • Apr 26, 2019 by CoastFun

    the room was so nice and clean. decorated so cute. So relaxing. Right downtown but so quiet. Walking distance to shops and restaurants. Grace is so nice and very helpful. Everything in the room and then some. I really enjoyed the stay and will be back for sure.

  • Apr 25, 2019 by A R.

    This is not  Marriott or Hyatt or Sheraton. But I would still give it five stars because - The suites are spacious and perfect for families with more than one child, it's clean, they have a play area where kids and parents can play, courteous staff, they have a swimming pool, very close to beautiful beaches. I am not a big fan of their breakfast but I really don't care because we had a great time!

  • Apr 19, 2019 by Raul Cantu

    Amazing ocean front view from our room. Staff was extremely friendly, special thanks to Christina for helping with our booking. Definitely will be coming back.

  • Apr 18, 2019 by Cristin Parker

    Very family oriented. Pretty good location. Great service! Could use a better breakfast. If you're looking for a romantic getaway without kids this isn't the place to stay but still nice.

  • Apr 16, 2019 by Marguerite M.

    we spent 4 days here and were happy.  My family has an annual gathering and we've done it several times at the Lighthouse Suites. This time I took my bed bound husband with me. I had never traveled with him since he became bed bound and was confronted with several issues I hadn't anticipated. I had no expectation that a hotel would accommodate him.  Becky solved several problems for us and I am grateful.  My husband had a hard time eating in bed and I had no tray.  She went to 4 stores to find a bed tray for him and there was none available- ones with legs.  She came with the one she bought and brought a maintenance man with her who was prepared to add legs to the tray. No mention of money! Thats being treated like family.  Bless Becky.

  • Apr 14, 2019 by Feema F.

    Beautiful rooms, location, bed comfort, pillows, etc. it would be 5 stars in my book but the breakfast is really sub par. The sausages and omelette were Sysco bottom of the barrel. For the prices of these rooms, I think they can upgrade a little. It would make a huge difference. Great play area!

  • Apr 10, 2019 by Mike D.

    We were looking forward to a nice stay, but after the first night we started to be disappointed. In the morning of are second day we went to the beach at noon and expected by the time we returned at 2:30 pm are room would have been cleaned. No such thing! After calling the desk, finally at 3:30 pm did our room get cleaned. Well today we decided to leave the room we left earlier and stayed out till 3:30pm in hopes the room would be cleaned. No such luck! We are not sitting outside at 4:00 pm waiting for our room to be cleaned. However, I have upgraded this review as the hotel managers called and apologized and got our room cleaned as well as gave a small gift for having the problem. She promised to talk to her housekeeping manager about this. Other this issue, it is a nice place to stay!

  • Apr 08, 2019 by Tim Trerise

    We loved our stay at this place. it was so clean, and so nice, that we just loved it. Perched right there overlooking the ocean, it has beautiful rooms it has beautiful suites and it is just the best. We started the evening by going to the great American melodrama in oceano, and then came back to the sweets. The breakfast in the morning was amazing, thank you Maria! we also really enjoyed our room, we had a two bedroom suite that was very very very nice. Definitely recommend it if you're in the Pismo Beach area.

  • Mar 28, 2019 by Caroline Topperman

    Didn't know what to expect when I booked this place and it does not disappoint! Our room was huge and the view is unbeatable. It has beach access but it's a bit removed from main part which makes it even better, you get the best of both worlds.

  • Mar 21, 2019 by Suzy Q.

    First let me tell you, the staff is very friendly and patient.  I had a few issues at check in but we figured it out. The rooms are nice. We got a family suite and my kids loved it. Our balcony over looked the play area. We enjoyed all the different games the had out there. They added a playground but made the mini golf smaller. They also have boardgames you can check out at the front desk. The kids loved the warmed pool and the hot tub felt nice the first night. Breakfast was basically the same both days. Waffles, eggs, sausage, pastry, cereal.  It's a large selection but no potatoes lol. I wanted potatoes. But it was good.  Now for the not so great. This is all just temporary but we were not aware that they were doing remodeling.  Although it wasn't loud they did have to turn off our water both days for about 4 hours. The hot tub was also closed the second day because of this. The beds are so hard. So if you like a firm bed I guess that's a plus.  No room service or restaurant on site and no renting movies in your room. Otherwise it was a good stay and a good getaway.  The kids are looking forward to next time.

  • Mar 01, 2019 by Elizabeth V.

    When making reservations  (a suite with balcony facing the ocean) we were not told that the motel was under construction. Currently there is a very very loud machine roughly the size of a house along the side of the motel's driveway blocking the exit. There are 10 bins that are the size of a garage sitting in front of our rooms. If that were not bad enough, the sofas are so hard that sitting on them is literally the same as sitting on a rock. The bed is extremely hard and frustratingly uncomfortable.   The room here is approximately $325 a night.  While The actual room is very large I can't imagine a less desirable place to stay. Also we could hear our neighbors upstairs walking around. Absolutely no insulation.  We are regular travelers and guarantee we will never return to this hotel.

  • Feb 11, 2019 by Mark K.

    I stayed there last week and the views of the Ocean from my balcony was awesome. The rooms are recently upgraded. I could smell the new carpet. Good breakfast too that is included. Great value as well.

  • Feb 02, 2019 by Sharon E.

    Called to make a last minute reservation with my dog. So friendly got together a pet friendly suite. Spacious room with all amenities including a refrigerator. The sound of the Ocean was wonderful. Hospitality! Clean ! Pet Friendly!  Loved it!

  • Feb 01, 2019 by Valencia A. Cameron

    Beautiful hotel. Very clean! Our room smells nice, and not like the ocean. The oceanfront rooms truly deliver an oceanfront view!! I LOVE it!!

  • Jan 21, 2019 by Natasha K.

    Positives: spacious suites for the price, great location walking distance to a beautiful beach, great views of the waves if you stay oceanside. Issues: for me, one of the biggest factors regarding whether or not I enjoy my stay somewhere is the ability to get a decent nights sleep. Unfortunately, that was impossible here. There is absolutely zero insulation in the rooms. Your can hear everything, everywhere--ranging from people talking outside and through the walls, doors slamming, and the guests above you pacing back and forth (from, in our case, 4am onward. Which, by the way, whotf does that??) I don't think I've ever stayed at a hotel with such poor insulation and noise control-- really, even motels have it handled better. Got maybe two hours of sleep. Also had a cleanliness issue in the restroom; during my first shower I found several strands of thick black hair stuck on the shower walls (I'm blonde). Won't be coming back.

  • Jan 19, 2019 by Eric Tam

    Great location and great place. This suite is close within a short driving location to everything. Their common free play area was heavily used by everyone, but during our stay they had some construction going on so parking was a challenge. The heater for the swimming pool was busted for two out of the three days we were there. The lobby had hot coffee and chocolate to your taking and their morning breakfast is good for those early bird who want to eat while everyone else is sleeping. The breakfast has a good selection including eggs, sausage, waffles, cereals, yogurts etc. There's also ample staff there to keep things clean too.

    The rooms are quite nice. The double suites come with a room with one king and another with two queen, each suite with it's own bathroom. Towels didn't have any foul smell and were not worn out either. The shower stall took a little bit of time to figure it out but once you do you'll be rewarded with a stream of massaging water.

    We always book with an ocean view to hear the waves while we sleep. Our boys always enjoy the breakfast and giant games. Great location in Pismo and close to SLO and Cal Poly.

  • Jan 09, 2019 by Gaurav&Susan Mehrotra

    The location is just perfect....excellent views and that's what you pay for. Staff was good and the property was clean and well maintained. Breakfast was regular continental ...nothing great but sufficient. We had a great relaxing visit.

  • Jan 04, 2019 by sharonal0...

    We just spent 6 nights at the BeachComber and we can't wait to go back ! Grace the Inn Keeper is so nice and remembers everyone by name. The rooms are BEAUTIL and have a lot of little extra features (like a bowl of candy on the table and extra things in the bathroom in case your forgot anything). It's walking distance to lots of restaurants and shopping. We feel spoiled when we stay here.

  • Jan 04, 2019 by Hal H

    We've been guests at BeachComber for about 12 yrs. It is a great place to stay, close to anything and everything at Pismo. Grace is the hostess with the moistest, she always has a smile and a warm greeting. Would highly recommend to anyone.

  • Jan 03, 2019 by Rae Ann Caparelli

    Great view!. Great accommodations! DOG FRIENDLY! only two things I can possibly complain about... after talking to our neighbors.

    1 IF you have floor level ocean view...fantastic for dogs because patio has little gated area ...BUT rooms come with ear plugs.....lmao...its because it sounds like upstairs neighbors are wearing bricks on their shoes while moving furniture. Or neighbors to our right said the same thing about their upstairs neighbors. So TVs on all night and ear plugs in makes for good night sleep...although cant listen to waves crashing with ear plugs in. Oh well...hahaha...at least a very nice room that welcomed our dogs.

    2. Shower....if you are taller than 5ft 5 then I hope you are very flexible. I am 5ft10 and shower water hit me below the shoulders.

    BUT if you have dogs....they are so awesome here. They brought us dog bowls with dog treats and dog blankets!

    We ate at Giuseppe's in town which was top 5 best Italian we have eaten! Delish! Just thought I would mention because IF you stay here it us definitely worth the 3 min drive to eat there!

  • Jan 01, 2019 by Joey R.

    My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. The breakfast scrambled eggs tasted like powdered eggs and the breakfast sausage was the worst tasting, I had taken one bite and had to spit it out and it was the first time I had ever thrown away my breakfast sausage. The bed was very firm, but they did give us a $50.00 discount for the uncomfortable bed. The suite we stayed in was really nice, it was on the second level and it had a separate bedroom with two bathrooms and a flat screen T.V. In the bedroom and the Living room. The living room was facing the ocean which was nice. There was also a small microwave and a small refrigerator and a sink in the kitchenette area. The elevator worked well to get us up to our room. This place needs new beds and a better breakfast, the management should stay at a comfort Inn and check out their breakfast?

  • Dec 25, 2018 by Pratik Shah

    Location was amazing. We got an ocean front room. The view was breathtaking. The staff was very nice and polite. The continental breakfast was good with scrambled eggs, boiled eggs, sausages, waffles toast bagel cereal juices and fruits.

  • Dec 09, 2018 by Sarah R.

    Great hotel! Me and my husband were driving through to Santa Barbara and this one popped up for us. Hotel room was spacious, clean and tidy. Friendly staff! Great place for kids- we didn't bring ours this time but would be back with them! There's a playground area with ping pong, badminton, a large chess/checkers table and a pool. Beautiful views with great walkways.

  • Dec 07, 2018 by Steve O.

    This is a wonderful place to stay!  First time here, for our annual December getaway and it doesn't disappoint. Two bed room suite with two full bathrooms. Right on the cliffs looking at the ocean. Room is clean and beach themed. Not quite the super plush over the top expensive but very nice and spacious and affordable. Lots to do on the property including plenty for the kids young and old. Front desk was very friendly and quick check in. Easy parking. Happy to be here.

  • Dec 06, 2018 by Kristin W.

    My family and I love this hotel! My grandparents have stayed here many times and continue to bring back my family, relatives and friends of theirs. Sam and Kristina on the lobby are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are incredibly clean, comfortable and you cannot beat the ocean view from your balcony! Definitely stay here when you come to Pismo, you won't regret it!

  • Nov 26, 2018 by Diane L.

    My family and I loved this hotel! This is the perfect place for a family with young kids. We stayed in an ocean front room and it had a great view. It was huge! 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The rooms were clean and the decor cute! My kids loved the playground with the slide and merry go round. There's also chess/checkers, badmiton, ping pong, and mini golf. So much to do with the kids. Every morning we asked ourselves if we should go for a walk on the beach, swim in the swimming pool or play in the playground! There's so many options to keep the little ones entertained. Breakfast is what you'd expect for being free. One morning they had fresh strawberries and those were a big hit in our family. The front desk staff is so warm and welcoming. You can ask them to check out boardgames and grab a cookie and hot chocolate in the evening. I would definitely stay here again and looking forward to my next trip to Pismo Beach!

  • Nov 25, 2018 by David L.

    Excellent property.  Blankets could be better, plenty of pillows.  Located right on a cliff 180 degree ocean view. 1 Bdr, 2 Bath, Living Room, wet bar, 2 TVs, pull out couch.  Dog friendly paths along the cliffs.  Dogs must be on leash on the beach.  Breakfast is what you would expect, you are paying for the view.

  • Nov 24, 2018 by Toni T.

    We were excited to come stay here but after our experience I say watch out.  They lost our online reservation.  The clerk said this was not the first time they experienced that issue.  I wonder why they haven't tried harder to fix a known issue with the reservations system.  She upgraded one of our two rooms only because they ran out of regular rooms.  We came at 4:30 and neither room was ready.  I complained about the major inconveniences and she felt like they took sufficient  measures by discounting the upgraded room to the cost of a regular room.   I believe this is standard practice to make sure your guest has a room, not a great favor we should feel honored to receive.   The second family in our party didn't receive any conciliatory offering until we pressed.   My daughter observed many other families hanging out in the cold as well, all waiting for their rooms too.    My husband asked if they experience rooms not ready for guests.    The clerk admitted it happens every few weeks.  I don't mind mistakes, but not repeated ones that they don't learn from and correct.   We tried to make the most of it and hit the "hot tub" while we waited for our rooms to be ready.   It was barely luke warm.     I've never had such issues at Dolphin  Bay, Seascape Resort, or Inn a the Pier.   Those wonderful stays are we come back to Pismo.   Thanks to those great experiences, we'll come back to the area.  However we will not be coming back here.

  • Nov 24, 2018 by Patrick T.

    Horrible experience. Website and hotel system didn't talk to each other so our room wasn't in the hotel system. Also, room not ready for a 5:30pm check-in.  No accommodation for room not being ready except to wait.  Would not recommend this hotel all.  Extremely disappointing.

  • Nov 23, 2018 by Natalie M.

    In previous years there have never been any obvious issues aside from paper thin walls, however this year was essentially a disaster. We originally reserved a 2 bedroom suite, which generally means 2 private (ish) bedrooms with a separate sitting area to fulfill the suite portion. However what we received was the same 1 bedroom suite previously used, with a King bed in the sitting area. This obviously was not what was advertised & unfortunately caused us to have to get & pay for 2 separate rooms which caused us to separate our group of 6. Additionally the paper thin walls, allowance of smoking on the balconies, and the allowance of a trailer in the parking lot was extremely upsetting. Now the management has stated that they do allow guests to park their trailers in the parking lot, however what they do not tell you is that they allow guests to stay in their trailers so long as they are paying for a room, meaning these guests can pay for just one room while housing plenty more without paying for the extra rooms. The manager, though helpful on some items, was extremely forceful on the "hotels decisions" including blocking off a whole section of the parking lot to house the trailer stated above. Overall, the quality of stay & hospitality has truly gone down at this location over the years.

  • Nov 22, 2018 by C J.

    So this review is a rant.  I really wish that hotels could figure out rooms for families with kids and without kids.  Granted this is the perfect hotel for kids, lots of activities for them but when you pay $500 a night it would be nice to not have to listen to kids running back and forth across the floor, items being slammed on the floor, etc. When we booked the reservation we asked for a second floor room because last time we stayed it was a nightmare listening to the kids above us constantly jumping off the bed and running around the room.  We get here and end up with a bottom floor room.  Well, not we sit here listening to the herd of elephants running around upstairs and their tv is so loud it's drowning out ours.  I would say that we will NOT be staying here again.

  • Nov 21, 2018 by Kylee C.

    everytime we come for a family vacation, we stay here. the staff know us very well and are always kind. one thing, their ceilings feel very thin. i had trouble sleeping last night listening to a child sprinting above me. but other than that, food, pool and ocean view are awesome! never fails to disappoint us.

  • Nov 20, 2018 by laura firman

    This place was such a pleasant surprise. We came down to get some fresh air from the fires in the Bay area that will definitely come back as this place is a gem. It is so kid friendly. The playground with ping pong, pirate ship play structure, etc. is so great for kids to just run around. They also have board games to lend out. The room I'm in is two rooms and two bathrooms with a kitchenette with a microwave and refrigerator. Parking is free. The staff is really nice. You're less than a mile from downtown Pismo Beach and right on the water. I love that the pool is heated. It's just right in so many ways.

  • Nov 19, 2018 by Greg Norton

    Beautiful location, scenic ocean views, above average continental breakfast. Family oriented, lots of games for kids to enjoy, nice spa and pool. Beds were comfortable. Very enjoyable stay!

  • Nov 10, 2018 by Christina Jimenez

    Best family hotel hands down!! Lots of fun activities, very friendly and helpful staff, comfy and clean. Can't wait to stay again.

  • Nov 09, 2018 by Arabella David

    The rooms very large and with great views of the ocean. We were disappointed by the loud construction sounds every day we were there and that the pool was closed for the duration of our stay. We would have liked to have been informed of the noise and lack of access to facilities ostensibly included in the room rate, so we would have had a chance to arrange other, quieter lodgings.

  • Nov 05, 2018 by Sabrinna V.

    I was coming up to SLO for some business for 1 day and decided to stay here and I'm so glad I did! I requested an Oceanside room and it was beautiful! Everything was really clean and spacious. The pool & jacuzzi over look the ocean as well. The breakfast is great there's a ton of options. I will definitely be staying here again

  • Oct 21, 2018 by Luis Pezqueda

    The room was wonderful and the view by the pool was absolutely stunning. The play area in the middle is great for families looking to play some games together. The only downside would have to be the noise coming from the freeway in certain rooms but thankfully they provide earplugs.

  • Oct 10, 2018 by Erika Merino

    We loved everything about the hotel. The play deck, ocean view, the breakfast. The room layout was great.

  • Oct 08, 2018 by John Bloch

    Hotel was the most accommodating place that we've ever stayed at. Parking was easy and plentiful. The property was clean and well maintained. The room was gorgeous and so clean! 5/5 - would stay here again in heartbeat.

  • Oct 02, 2018 by Louise V.

    We arrived at 5 and had to leave before 9, but really loved this hotel!  Special promotion of $175 for ocean front with small patio overlooking the pier and beach below.  Beautiful morning sunrise!  Fun spot for a family--- nice playground, games, badminton ... our room was quiet and comfortable. Love that waffle machine!

  • Sep 30, 2018 by Brandi F.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Check in was a breeze, staff was knowledgeable and prompt, and the facility was beautiful and situated in a great spot. We loved our room, which was better than I anticipated, and breakfast had a little something for everyone. My son said the cookies were awesome, and he's not even a fan of sweets. I would definitely stay here again.

  • Sep 22, 2018 by Rick B.

    Nice accommodations. Comfy bed. Great location. Pool and hot tub. Afternoon coffee and cookies. Ocean view

  • Sep 20, 2018 by Debbie Riley

    I love this place. They have great rooms & location is good. This is where I'll stay whenever visiting Pismo Beach!

  • Sep 16, 2018 by Ron M.

    This is a great location for a family looking to get away for a few days where you can get fantastic ocean views from your room in a place that is very dog friendly. Booked the oceanfront first floor room as this accommodates our dog given that you can walk through the patio gate directly to a patch of grass that overlooks the ocean perched atop a cliff. I would STRONGLY RECOMMEND that you book the oceanfront room, and be sure to ask if any tree blocks your view (our view was perfect...see pic). Our patio view allowed us to see way south past Pismo pier, and northerly towards Avila. Sunsets are gorgeous. Below are a few key points: -- Book early as the few dog friendly places could sell quickly. -- because all rooms are suires, you do pay more than a hotel. But, you have a mini microwave, mini fridge, mini sink, with plenty of cabinet space on top of granite countertops for an extended stay. -- breakfast is free with waffles, bagels, reconstituted and nardboiled eggs, canned fruit, but you get what you pay for...free! Nothing stands out, and Embassy Suites does a better job of free breakfasts, but there aint no Embassy Suites around...if you want a real breakfast, you'll have to leave the premises and go to a nearby hotel restaurant. -- we come here for the dune buggying/atv riding at Ocean dunes which is only 15 mins away. -- oceanfront rooms does have a sidewalk connecting all hotels nearby so that everyone can enjoy ocean front views which I'm okay with...just be aware for those whom want privacy to pick a second or third floor room. --during our recent stay, the play area was closed for renovation, but it looked like a great hangout area. --pool looked dirty, but my kids went in anyways. Jacuzzi seemed ok. Both offer great views of the ocean sheltered from the wind with wrap around glass walls. --for anybody thinking this place is expensive, they should note that these two-room suites with kitchenettes are intended for a family of 4-6 with oceanfront views. In my experience, $500/night is a good deal given that in most hotels I'd have to book two rooms... --front desk people are just ok...this is not a Ritz Carlton, so folks just need to have the correct expectations. --parking was ok with decently sized spots, and we were able to always find parking for my large suv. There were many other similarly large vehicles throughout.

  • Sep 10, 2018 by Alec B.

    Just checked out of Pismo Lighthouse Suites this place is amazing value, the location could not be better with 180 views of the ocean and Pismo pier, the rooms are spotless and I have to say the manager Erik Mund gives Ritz Carlton service at such reasonable prices.

  • Sep 04, 2018 by Colin Au

    The location is perfect as it is close to the 101 freeway and got a perfect view of the ocean. It is also quiet from the noisy environment of the pier area but not too far from there. The rooms were nice and comfortable with a good view of the ocean.

  • Sep 02, 2018 by Stephen Basile

    Clean and comfortable suite. Breakfast was full and decent. Walking distance to town. Would come again.

  • Sep 02, 2018 by Meriam R.

    The worst experience ever! They are charging very high fees for an ocean view room and here is the view from our room!!!! $480/night for this!!!! And the sheets are dirty!!! Sofa beds are falling apart!!! Jacuzzi is discussing to say the least I would never come back here

  • Sep 02, 2018 by Kirollos R.

    Location is nice however customer service is really bad. Front desk aren't accomdating. Sheets are very dirty. Chairs has dirty spots. Don't recommend

    We loved this property.  I stayed there with my 2 kids and another mom with her 2 kids. The 2 bedroom family suite was perfect.  The location was perfect for visiting Avila Beach and SLO.  The provided breakfast was convenient.  The only complaint I had was the WiFi connection is non-existent which in some ways was a blessing bc my kids found other things to play in the room, but don't rely on it if you were planning to work, etc.

    Clean, spacious, well decorated rooms. Polite front desk staff. This is a family friendly place to stay with many activities. It is right on the cliff overlooking the ocean with stairs close by to walk down to the beach. We would definitely stay here again.

    The airconditioner said error and didn't work, the carpets were wet and the room wasn't the cleanest. It was so loud, we couldn't sleep all night. I'm only giving 2 stars for the beautiful view. The hotel was awful.

  • Jul 31, 2018 by Molly MacGregor

    Clean. Lots of toys for kids. Right on highway and beach but we couldn’t hear it from the room. Awesome view from pool and hot tub. Canned rose for the hot tub! Laundry facilities too.

    I booked a room for our whirlwind college tour at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites, except I accidentally booked this room in Pismo Beach when we were seeing colleges in San Diego (like I said, whirlwind).  Two days after my reservation, I realized my mistake & called the hotel.  They gladly refunded my money, since I hadn't used their services.  If their customer service is this good for someone who ISN'T a customer, I can only imagine what they will do for someone who is a paying customer.  I will surely give them my business next time I'm staying in the area (unfortunately, they're sold out the night we're staying there next week).

    The the room, front desk was polite. Rooms were clean and great view. they had a variety of food for breakfast. Loved tge view

  • Jul 25, 2018 by Chris B.

    Amazing experience here. Front desk was amazing. Chail and mellisa were there everytime I needed something. Views were outa control. Room was 950sq ft and felt like it. Dog friendly. Go the extra mile providing a dog bowl and treats. Had a major family vibe, not the best place if your trying to party. Worth the price 4 sure.

  • Jul 22, 2018 by Abbi P.

    This is a fun hotel! There is a giant chess/checkerboard, mini golf, and ping-pong right by the lobby! Our room however, smelt like wet dog, and there was dog hair everywhere. We also found a mysterious bottle full of white powder under the TV stand. I took it to the front desk and a nice lady said that it was "just lotion"... We luckily were able to switch rooms. The new room was running smoothly until we found hair on the floor in the bathroom! Also, there is a closet type thing in the living room, don't use the blankets in there unless it's necessary! We found hair in the blankets too!!

    Not the 4 Seasons but SOLID for familys. Super easy, friendly check in. Easy, ample self park close to rooms. We were on 1st floor freeway side so I was worried about noise, but they put windows in the exterior walkway to enclose it and it really is effective. Small pool, spa, but pretty easy. Big area for games (ping pong, chess, ladder, putt-putt). Decent walk down to beach. Simple breakfast included (coffee was actually good). We had a suite, great room. 2 twins for my boys, queen in main room, all were big and roomy. Small patio. Super dog friendly. Next time, staying on ocean side. 100% go back.

  • Jul 11, 2018 by Gerardo Hernandez

    Location is great. Short (5-10 mins) walk to a beach access point. Rooms are spacious but beds and pillows are terribly uncomfortable. Good thing i only stayed one night or I would've dreaded going to sleep. Staff is friendly. Pool and games are great.

  • Jul 11, 2018 by V C.

    We are quite pleased with this hotel.  The suites are pretty spacious and we were staying at the ocean front suite with a very nice view.  Staff are very welcoming and friendly.  I heard the hotel didn't have AC before but thank God they updated it and installed the AC about a year ago.  The day we stayed there was over 100 degree and thanks to the new AC!  Very for a family of 4 with 2 young kids.

  • Jul 06, 2018 by Rich Hyndman

    King suite is a great room with lovely sea view and separate bedroom. Sleeps 2 adults and 3 kids fine, just ask for an extra bed. Breakfast is a buffet, it's fine. Pool and hot tub are nice.

  • Jul 06, 2018 by T Y.

    Stay here during 4th of July week with the family (3 of us.)  We have stayed on the Central Coast about 4 times a year for the past few years.  This hotel ranks in the top 3 for us. Check in was super easy and very fast.  Greeted by smiling faces and a cookie.  Tim, who checked me in was very informative and upbeat.  The lobby is very simple and provides seating, books, coffee, hot chocolate, hot water, and cookies (if at check in.)  It sits off of the courtyard area that has games such as putting greens, ping pong (must buy your ball for $.25 out of a gumball machine), badmitten, chess, checkers (life size), cornhole, and another tossing game.  It also has chairs and is centrally located to all the rooms.  Great place to interact with others, or just enjoy with your family or friends.  People filter through pretty quickly.  It would be great if the hotel spruce up this area, oh and tighten some screws on that swing. We were given a room in Blg 2 with a partial ocean view.  Because we have been to Pismo Beach a number of times, the view was not the main reason we were here.  If you are looking for ocean views, you need to book into Blg 3 (awesome views, hands down!)  Our room, as with the rest of the hotel, is a 2 "bedroom", 2 full bath room.  The convenience of 2 bathrooms has to be the top feature if you are traveling with a bunch in your party.  The showers were strong, adjustable, and had lots of hot water.  The toilets flushed strong, and TP was of good quality.  There was a TV, chairs, and a dresser in each room.  Small fridge and micro also in "main" room.  There were lots of extra pillows and blankets.  The balcony had chairs and a small table.  The beds were pretty comfortable.  The nautical theme is pretty good throughout the room also. On the ground floor of Blg 2 is the Galley.  That is where you get free breakfast from 7am-10am.  It was not the full buffet, nor was it just continental...somewhere in between, but good value we thought.  Things you may find there...eggs, burittos, sauage, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, toast, bagels, patries, fruits, waffles, juices, milk, and to-go silverware, plates, and cups. On the side of Blg 3, and in front of the Galley is the pool/spa.  Both were heated (for real), but somewhat small.  Being a family type hotel, this area was pretty crowded with kids.  So don't expect some quiet time at the pool.  There were two tables with umbrellas, and about 15 lounging chairs.  Great view of the ocean and pier from here. Overall, a great stay.  The reason for only 4 star was the noise.  The room seem to have thin walls, and you can hear your neighbors TV pretty well.  Kept me up pass 2am one night.  BUT, they do provide ear plugs (LOL.) Would recommend for families, and would definitely return.

    We love staying here when we come to pismo. They are very accommodating and great customer service. The rooms are very spacious and some suites have beautiful ocean views.

  • Jun 23, 2018 by Daniel R.

    awesome stay! even took our pup with us

  • Jun 17, 2018 by K K.

    Interesting spot - great location, we booked ocean front and the view was spectacular. Watch the albatross and waves with a bottle of wine from the balcony. The hotel has an automated concierge, "Ivy" - pretty cool. The rooms are a bit outdated, and the breakfast could easily be upgraded by offering better service; paper plates and plastic knives and forks don't cut it at $600/ night. Simple upgrades would make all the difference. Spelling mistakes on the alcohol offerings at the front desk show a lack of attention to detail. All personnel were very friendly and accommodating. A few adjustments and this hotel would be great!

  • Jun 12, 2018 by Regina Johnson

    Great place to stay in Pismo. Dog friendly and close to SLO and wine tasting. The views were beautiful!!

  • Jun 10, 2018 by P H

    Excellent hotel with lots of options for your enjoyment. Short walk down the cliffs to the beach. A little road noise, but not too bad. Excellent breakfast with lots of variety.

  • Jun 03, 2018 by Angela G

    I have been staying at the Beachcomber Inn since the late 1990's, and we just got back from another lovely weekend there. The rooms are spacious, newly remodeled, and include a kitchenette and a gas fireplace! We love that it has it's own parking, reasonable rates for the area, and so close to the beach. It's only one short block from Splash Cafe, Brad's Restaurant, and Harry's Bar. Even better, Grace, the innkeeper, makes you feel like family, keeps the rooms and parking spotless, and fills you in on the different wonderful places to eat, shop, or entertain while you're there. We LOVE Beachcomber and can't wait until our next visit!

  • Jun 01, 2018 by Eloisa L.

    This is my favorite, most family friendly hotel in Pismo. Nice spacious rooms & gorgeous views of the ocean! They have family games located in the center of the hotel for all to enjoy in case swimming in the beach is too cold. My family and I absolutely love this place! We are definitely coming back.

  • May 30, 2018 by Heather Frieden

    Request a room facing the harbor - it’s worth the extra money! Great atmosphere, very beachy and relaxing. There’s a restaurant next door but requires reservations. However, there’s lots of great local restaurants. Very nice for a weekend getaway. Staff is friendly and helpful, rooms are very nice and clean.

  • May 30, 2018 by Mark S.

    So the hotel was great ,the room was good size and the breakfast was not to shabby.. but! The card I put on file for my security deposit was not only charged but it was charged twice and when I called them they stated that they didn't show it in their system. But when I called my bank they showed it.. so I 3 way called them back and all of a sudden they now see the charge and said it is pending... so now I have to wait 6 days to see it hit my bank. So no matter if you pay for your room in cash be sure to have them remove your card info when you check out cause they will charge your card when you leave to try and steal your money and play dumb about it... and it's to bad cause we really like the place but nobody should be trying to steal your money like that.

  • May 29, 2018 by Stephen Y.

    Such awesome place! Booked a last minute Sunday- Monday trip over Memorial weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. This place is modern and updated unlike most of the inns/hotels along the cliff and beach area. There is plenty of free parking as well. It has everything from a heated pool, to ping pong, corn hole etc. The views from all over this hotel are amazing that look out into the ocean. The suite itself was perfectly themed, spacious, and had a private balcony! We had a courtyard suite but still had views of the water! The walk down to the beach is quick and easy. It took us ten minutes to get to the beginning part of downtown Pismo when we went out for dinner. The free breakfast had the usuals as well as hard boiled eggs, waffles, bagels. They use Seattle's Best Coffee brand which is a positive. **Tip** try to get to breakfast before 8:30, it seems after that time it gets really packed until the galley is closed. The room with the food and drinks is small so it gets hard to move around. Overall this place is worth the money! I plan to come back. I wanted to thank Timothy who helped check us in. He was very friendly, and helpful.

  • May 28, 2018 by Kim R.

    THE perfect family hotel! The front desk was EXTREMELY accommodating. And warm chocolate chip cookies at check in always steals my heart.  Amenities were top notch. Breakfast was delicious, too. It took the average "free hotel hot breakfast" and upgraded it. Waffle machines? Yes, but they elevated it by having hot syrup and strawberry compote topping. Fresh fruit? You bet, but not just bananas & apples, also fresh strawberries and a fresh, cut mixed fruit bowl. And the rooms? The decor was more "cute B&B" than stuffy hotel.  And if you are traveling with children (we had 4 & 6 year olds), hang onto your hat! No more sitting in silence/darkness at 8pm as your littles are falling asleep in the bed right next to you. These rooms have 2 queen beds IN SEPARATE (but very connected) ROOMS! The kids loved their own room with TV and own bathroom, which had a very large "lip" around the tub, perfect for ponies and dinosaurs to explore during bath time. It doesn't have a door, but a very thick, heavy curtain which was perfect for my paranoid brain. Once they were in bed watching a movie, my husband & I enjoyed a bottle of wine on the ocean view patio- they even stocked the wine glasses! Could not be more pleased with our stay! Will definitely be returning!

  • May 21, 2018 by Katbubu15 M.

    Very CLEAN & relaxing resort while visiting Pismo Beach. Check-In process was quick, front desk lady was really nice.  2 bedroom family suite layout was perfect. Beautiful Ocean & pool view from our balcony.  We had privacy plus easy access to the 2nd room. Perfect for families with kids or 2 couples. There is A/C in the unit but not needed with the cool ocean breeze. We kept our windows open throughout our 2 night stay and  enjoyed the fresh air.  This resort was very attentive, I arrived to my room with a Birthday Wine & 2 wine glasses on the table. Super sweet! They have free breakfast which is always a plus. There is nice heated pool overlooking the ocean plus a game deck area. Free parking & Free WiFi. Most important, excellent customer service. Definately will return with my family & friends!

  • May 15, 2018 by Spoiled R.

    Beautiful location, 2 bedroom 2 bath is a good size but not conducive to family interaction. One small table with 2 chairs, definitely felt more like a place to sleep only and not one to enjoy a family vacation. Room was very stuffy almost humid thankfully it was nice outside so having the window open helped. The key card to our room worked minimally at best most time requiring it to be swiped 3+ times even with the green light being lit. The worst part of the entire 3 night stay was the god awful bed, it felt like sleeping on a piece of plywood, the first 2 nights I couldn't sleep and the 3rd I think I just slept out of exhaustion from not sleeping the previous nights. Beach access is a walk but you're on a cliff, so it's expected. The oceanfront rooms have gorgeous views and if the bed was better more stars would be given.

  • May 07, 2018 by Ivan Zarate

    Very nice suites. We had a room with a partial view and it was very nice! Staff were very friendly nice and accommodating. They had badminton table tennis and chess and checkers. It was also a 5 minute walk to the beach. We are planning on going again soon.

  • May 06, 2018 by Crystal Pearsall

    We had a great time! Beautiful room with beautiful view. Great breakfast and game area. Great staff and would definitely come back.

  • Apr 29, 2018 by Latasha L.

    Love  this hotel. Super nice cool staff. We were greeted with a smile and service which we really liked. Then once we got to the room the breath taking view had us sitting on the balcony for over an hour. The room was the size of a small apartment with two bathrooms which is always convenient. I don't have one complaint about this one will definitely stay here if were ever in the area again.

  • Apr 24, 2018 by Janine G.

    Originally my husband and I stayed at a shitty hotel (Inn of Lompoc, read my review there!) in Lompoc and had to deal with a drug addict banging on our door in the middle of the night every night so THIS PLACE saved the rest of our vacation experience. This hotel is amazing in every way I can think of. We stayed here only one night, our last night on vacation (coming from Phoenix). Gorgeous room, had a partial ocean view, the room had a lot of beach vibe character, and the staff is awesome. There's a deck next to the front lobby where you can play ping-pong, mini golf, tennis, and giant chess - all outside in the beautiful weather. The room is so comforting and beautiful that it made us feel at home. The breakfast was awesome with a variety of fresh fruits like oranges, bananas, sliced up strawberries, apples, and cut up melons, cereal, muffins, variety of juices, BREAKFAST BURRITOS :) , boiled eggs, sausages, waffles, toast, and some other things. There's a heated pool and LED color changing hot tub with a view of the ocean. There's access to Pismo Beach from the hotel. It's really a beautiful hotel in an awesome location. The staff gives out free chocolate chip cookies at the front desk! We asked if we could check out late (1pm) instead of 12 and we were able to do so for free - sweet. We forgot our lunch bag with food in it in the fridge and I realized that after coming back home to Phoenix. I called them up and they offered to mail it to us. We are definitely coming back here again this year. We had such a blast with the awesome amenities and beautiful room and having the beach RIGHT THERE! It is worth spending more money on your hotel to have a relaxing and enjoyable vacation that you deserve.

  • Apr 20, 2018 by Stephen Mitchell

    This hotel is one of three located on the bluff overlooking Pismo Beach meaning it has very nice views of the beach and quick access without being surrounded by it. Also took advantage of the hot tub to recover from the long leisurely walks on the beach. The room was one of the two room suites that was very nice for separation of kids and parents rooms.

  • Apr 18, 2018 by T J.

    I was worried after reading some negative reviews, but this place was great. regarding noise, we were in building 2 (ocean view) which was probably going to get the most noise since the back deck faces both the freeway and the ocean. Its the building in between the one that is against the freeway(Decks face courtyard with low noise) and ocean front(Deck directly facing ocean). The view from our buiding was lovely, and yes with the slider open you can hear the freeway more than the ocean. That being said, with the slider shut at night we heard nothing and slept great. The place was great with a really nice buffet breakfast in the morning. We will return if we are in the area. Since we have a larger family the ocean front will never work for us. All the upper floors only sleep four. The bottom floor Ocean fronts are the only ones big enough in that building. The problem is that those are all dog friendly rooms and I was worried about the noise having two floors above us. It also sits on the walking path, so privacy is limited. I'd ask for either a room in the first building facing the courtyard or building 2 if I wanted a better view. The staff was amazing and accomadationing!

  • Apr 15, 2018 by Isabelle O.

    This was probably our favorite hotel that we stayed at during our week long trip at 4 different hotels. The complimentary breakfast here was far better than other ones we have visited. The suite having 2 separate room and bathrooms was such a nice addition to a normally smaller hotel room. The service was friendly and the views were great. Hot tub was nice and pool was heated. Elevators were a little slow, but the patio with places to hang out was nice for during the day.

  • Mar 25, 2018 by Oscar R.

    This is my favorite place to stay during the summer, because i can definitely relax with my family here. I have to admit the staff is very professional and courteous and very helpful. Certainly worth the price for your money. An awesome shout out to Casey for assisting me in a small issue that i encountered on my computer through the website. She got the issue resolved right away and impressed my other family members that all three families reserved their rooms online the same night. Thanks again , Casey!!!!

  • Mar 22, 2018 by Eduard Guzovsky

    Excellent hotel right at the ocean's edge! Clean spacious rooms. Plenty of outdoor facilities - ping pong, badminton, pool, giant chess. Magnificent Pismo beach is just a short walk away. Breakfast offering could be better, but "not by bread alone" :-)

  • Mar 20, 2018 by Linda Lee

    Check in time too late in the day for our liking. Location very good! The view was great. Breakfast so...so. The breakfast burrito seemed frozen and reheated type. This hotel is very expensive and breakfast should be of better quality. No eggs. Some fruit was canned.

  • Mar 18, 2018 by Alan B.

    (This review was written in 2016 - accidentally posted in the wrong hotel so moving it to the right one) Everything seems nice and clean.  I checked in with absolutely no problem and came into our king suite with ocean view. The first thing we noticed was how big this room was. (see pics) master bedroom with bath and then a living room with couch, sofa chair, chairs and table, TV and another bathroom with shower.  Everything was nice and clean.  The paint in the room looks nice and fresh.  The only thing that looked a bit worn out was the chairs outside on the balcony but just bring the towels and cover and problem solved. The only disappointing thing was the view of the ocean is only available thru the balcony.  Our room faces the parking lot :(  was hoping I can sleep to the sound of ocean lol  but we slept like babies and didn't hear any loud noises.  In fact it was a bit too quiet for me.  I felt uncomfortable watching tv too loud late at night lol but superman vs batman was on.  Oh did I mention you get full cable meaning 5 HBO stations, all the regular cable stations and music stations!!!  Awesome!!!  They also offer virtual assistant that you can text requests or questions to!  I text the VA about late checkout and got a quick and satisfying respond!  Love it!!! Overall:  I thought for the price ($159 thru Agoda before tax) this place was a steal especially because we had ocean view.  I seriously can't tell that this place was build in the 30's.  They must of either remodeled recently or I got the VIP room.  But what really bumped it up to 5 stars was the dolphin encounter when I woke up in the morning.  It was foggy the night before so couldn't see much.  I literally set the alarm early so I can wake up and enjoy the ocean view and to my surprise, there were two Dolphins chilling.  I did not even know there's Dolphins around lol.  It completed our stay there and we felt extremely fortunate to have witnessed that!!!  Would definitely consider coming back if we are ever in town!!!

  • Mar 03, 2018 by 604joan1948

    Reception staff provided friendly helpful information. Rooms are all upgraded, clean and well supplied with linens and personal care items. The small gas fireplace kept us cozy on a cold windy day. Breakfast snacks, chocolates and a Keirig were all appreciated. It was what I would call budget priced but superior quality.

  • Feb 26, 2018 by Andy Leach

    A really nice hotel. We had a family reunion there and their two room suites and overall accommodations were perfect. Their courtard/play are inspired. Right on s ocean cliff with 75 mile views on a clear day. Fantastic free morning breakfast with seating area both inside and on a porch outside. Everything is spotless. The staff are friendly and helpful. Pismo is a grateful place to visit any season of the year.

  • Feb 22, 2018 by Ari G.

    Amazing amazing hotel!!! Highly recommend to everyone with families. Staff was awesome, this hotel has everything you need!!!!

  • Feb 20, 2018 by N S.

    Great for families.  Location is great but ask to be in room where the cliff pelican smell is not as strong (ie not right by the creek side room for handicap near the office a bit stronger smell but not too bad if you keep door closed certain times of day),  good simple family breakfast (more dietary needs go to JOY in SHell beach about 5 min away by car).  Waffles fresh, sausages cereal etc.  Games like ping pong (bring a quarter for ball) , mini golf etc.  Good views of whales and perfect to walk along bluff then to expansive beach.  Great GM.  $10 credit if you skip cleaning some days.  Ice cream social one day a week ..tea. coffee and hot cocoa in office all day. and in evenings.  thank you for taking care of us during the fire evacuation!

  • Feb 19, 2018 by Jazzy OMG

    Amazing place. Great, comfy, warm beds. Good place to bring your dog. Just the best for a big family.

  • Feb 13, 2018 by Larry K.

    Wonderful spot! Great people and if you have a family, children, this is it! Great views and things for the kids to do like heated pool and games in the center of the hotel! Bad mitten, putt putt golf, large chess and checkers, and other patio games. Great breakfast

  • Feb 09, 2018 by Samantha Gigliotti

    I love this place! The rooms are nice and clean, with plenty of space for a family. I loved having separate rooms. This place is very family friendly. My son had a blast in the pool and hot tub. The pool area was clean and stocked with plenty of clean dry towels. The staff is always friendly and helpful. I'm looking forward to our next stay!

  • Feb 02, 2018 by Emma K.

    This is a good and almost great hotel. The staff is very friendly and you are served breakfast every morning. I stop there alot for business so the breakfast is really nice in the morning. It's very dated and needs some TLC. The rooms (especially the hard beds) need to be updated. It's a good place to stop for a night - but I wouldn't take a vacation there for a week.

  • Jan 05, 2018 by Al Bowers

    Very nice hotel. It is as advertised. One thing of note they do not have a workout gym but they have a lot of outdoor games for couples and families which is a welcome change of paste for Many. Did not give it five stars because we were short on towels on a non-peak time of the season. And the complementary breakfast was good but not great. We rented the suite and one of the rooms did not have a door just curtains… FYI. I would recommend this hotel to others.

  • Dec 28, 2017 by Jeremy Stein

    Wonderful views, rooms and warm, friendly staff. They were incredibly accommodating with my family, and several other families that were evacuated because of a wildfire in the Santa Barbara area. We ended up spending over 2 weeks here, and it became like a second home for us. We're already talking about planning a trip back up for fun when there's less worry on our minds. This is an excellent place for kids, as they badminton, ping-pong, cornhole, ladder ball, and miniature golf on a nice outside terrace, as well as a heated pool. We were fortunate enough to have an ocean-view room with a balcony, and the view was breathtaking. It's dog-friendly, and being just a short walk down to a large beach, our lab loved it as well. My family and I cannot say enough nice things about the property and staff!

  • Dec 26, 2017 by Mary Cozean

    We spent a few days here over Christmas. Pismo Lighthouse Suites is both kid-friendly and dog-friendly. There is an outdoor game deck where you can play chess, checkers, ping-pong and other activities. There is a pool and hot tub. You can also borrow board games from the front desk. In our family suite was a dog blanket, food bowl and treats for our girl. I loved having two bathrooms and two bedrooms. In the morning people can go to the galley for a nice continental breakfast. If you follow a path to a neighboring hotel and head down the staircase you find the beach.

  • Dec 20, 2017 by Lynn Menefee

    Great place for every one! Including dogs!! Staff are wonderful. Lots of little perks. Very nice rooms - especially with an ocean view! Recommend it to several friends.

  • Dec 20, 2017 by L P.

    Big shout out to Pismo Lighthouse Suites who offered a great rate for Santa Barbara folks needing to evacuate or just breathe some clean air during the Thomas Fire. They offered all of their rooms including ocean view at the same price.  They also allowed dogs into rooms to accommodate our four legged kids as well. They have a fun courtyard filled with games for the whole family, heated pool, jacuzzi and breakfast included. Just a short walk down, there's a staircase that leads to a wide open beach perfect for running, playing and letting the dogs off leash.  The rooms were spacious and had a fridge, microwave and coffee.  The beds were decent, not the most comfortable, but you can't beat the view! Great stay and we will return under better circumstances.

  • Dec 14, 2017 by Kenneth R.

    A lovely place, and a great value, and truly pet- and kid-friendly. (Lots of "pet-friendly" places only take dogs, but the Lighthouse Suites was happy to accommodate us and our cat.) We came here after being forced to evacuate for the Thomas fire, and the folks here couldn't have been more accommodating (allowing us to switch rooms to get an ocean view and then to switch again when long-scheduled construction in what would ordinarily have been a slow time of year was outside our door). The rooms are attractively furnished and very clean. Highly recommended.

  • Nov 27, 2017 by Christine Malta

    We have been coming to Pismo for over 20 years. We used to stay at a different hotel but when we found Pismo Lighthouse Suites we never went back. The 2 room suite is very convenient for us. The rooms are clean, updated, and spacious. The free breakfast is always delicious with a lot of variety. Pismo Lighthouse Suite is the best value in Pismo.

  • Nov 27, 2017 by N J.

    Almost never actually sit to write a review but this place was great. Really cool about check in/check out, great amount of room. Booked through orbitz, some places have seemed not that cool if you do that, this place was happy to see me. Left some stuff in the room, they offered to ship it for a small fee. Something to know, you can walk to Pismo Pier/downtown and the beach but there are a good number of steps to the beach. In almost all cases it's fine but we didn't want to carry down a 1 year old and surfboard so drove the very short distance to the beach.

  • Nov 26, 2017 by Brooke F.

    We just stayed here for a post Thanksgiving trip on our way home from visiting family for the holiday. I couldn't have been happier with this hotel. We have 2 boys (4 and almost 3 years old) the amount of activities for them was incredible. There is a whole area dedicated to kid activities, mini golf, ping pong, life size checkers, cornhole, and this is only the half of it. My hubby and I could actually sit back and enjoy each others conversation over a glass of wine while our boys entertained themselves! Also the rooms were so cute, clean and basically 2 rooms in 1. Also I didn't realize we would be able to walk to the beach from the hotel since we were up on the cliff, but we could. We followed the path past all the other hotels and took the stairs down to the most beautiful beach. We were also close enough to the main part of Pismo, 5 min drive to splash cafe and all the other Pismo staples you must visit. We will definitely be staying here again, hopefully soon!

  • Nov 23, 2017 by Ron Khoury

    Perfect place for families with kids or big groups. They have family suites.
    Ping pong and other field games. Plenty of parking.
    2 miles from the ATV rental places and oceano dunes.
    If you forget something behind they will offer shipping it back to ya.

    Room is big and clean. Great location and shirt walk to the beach. However don't get the room i the building next to the main road and freeway. Road noice at night

    Room was decent. Recreational area was amazing with giant chess, lawn games, and ping pong. The view was priceless!

    For our family of 6 this place is perfect. We have a beautiful view of the ocean off the balcony of our room (with a king bed and bathroom) and the 4 kids have their own room with 2 queen beds and their own bathroom and their own tv and it's all connected in one family suite. Just outside our front door is the outdoor game pavilion with oversized chess, ping pong, badminton, and mini golf. So the kids can just run right outside and play and we don't have to worry about them. There is a heated pool and hot tub overlooking the ocean. The room has a fridge, microwave and coffee maker and bath and body works amenities. The front desk is super friendly and have a small assortment of local craft beer and wine. Free wi-fi, free parking and free breakfast. Can't ask for much more. Only one concern is the family in the room above us is a little rambunctious so if that bothers you ask for a room on the top floor. We had the Splash Cafe deliver dinner to our room - delicious clam chowder in a bread bowl!

    We stayed in Room 6 and our Host was wonderful. The room was charming and provided us a quiet retreat at the end of the day. Grace was attentive to our every need. Close to everything. Steps from the Beach and Dining. We would definitely stay here anytime we are in or near Pismo.

  • Oct 26, 2017 by Dave D.

    Although the area is absolutely amazing, the hotel is average and the cleaning service is lacking on several levels.  Cleaning services completely failed to show for several days, and one day arrived at 4 pm to clean our room.  Not acceptable.  Would certainly look into other hotels/cottages immediately adjacent to the PLSuites if we were to return.

  • Oct 22, 2017 by k4harmon

    This 7 room lovely little place is tucked inside the heart of Pismo Beach. Just steps from the ocean, restaurants, shops etc., you won't want to miss staying here. Each room is well equipped with every thing you need for a multi-day stay. And the best part is the Innkeeper Grace. You will fall in love with her and her Inn. The rooms are clean, unique, comfy and cozy. I truly regret only planning a weekend there because I was sad to have to leave.

    This hotel has been on our radar for a while - we often stay in the central coast as a destination or on our way between SF and LA. Always looked like a fun place to stay, but the little annoying details just added up over time and we wouldn't ever stay here again or recommend as a result. The good: Oceanfront location with access to beach via short walk through neighboring properties and stairway down to beach. Good onsite amenities with use of top of parking structure for the games courtyard - badminton, ping pong, mini golf (a little worn) and other games. Pool is shaded during the early part of the day, but great for sunset as well as the lawn in front. Variety of rooms - many very large, great for families or kids bringing a friend. so that's the good... The bad: Wi-Fi was terrible. Unfortunately, my cell phone died the day before we checked in and I had a few work emails and cloud based work to do. It was impossible to use a computer or iPad. Staff's only recourse is to "re-set" the router - but that won't help if the service or set-up is bad to begin with. Less than helpful and a deal-breaker for many people who have mobile work needs while on vacation. Breakfast was OK, but not much variety from day to day. They were smart to have someone on staff to make waffles when it was busiest, but rest of hot items were somewhat odd - hard boiled eggs in a steamer pan and some other strange-looking egg thing (they looked like plastic, cracked, baked eggs...). Not much for anyone gluten free - bring your own cereal. No recycling bins anywhere on property - they looked at us like we were odd for asking where we could deposit plastic and glass bottles. Despite the signs in the rooms about saving water and eco-planet awareness in a coastal location, they still took and washed the towels every day - even though we left on the rack as directed. No shower in the pool area for rinsing off before swimming despite signs directing everyone to shower before entering the pool. We came up from the beach one day with really dirty, sandy feet and just wanted to rinse off before going to our room or in the pool. Again, the guy at the front desk looked at me like it was a weird request and directed me to use the garden hose in the parking lot :-(!) It was being used for power washing tables, so I ended up going in the pool with my dirty, sandy feet - noticed that the bottom of the pool is covered in sand, so it seems like they would rather have a dirty pool than provide a simple (sanitary) solution in a beach area hotel. We kept having problems with the a/c unit in our room - main room temp was fine, but back separate bedroom was freezing. I think they finally "fixed" it by just turning off back unit. Dogs are apparently allowed, but they charge $50 per day for dogs in room which seems excessive. How much extra cleaning are they really doing to justify that? Our dog was with us, but we just kept her in the car instead of bringing her in the room. At checkout, I was asked if we "opt-ed out of housekeeping". This choice apparently comes with some sort of credit on your bill at check out. Perhaps we would have considered this if we had known. They said they sent text messages (not received due to phone problems? or went to our home number?) with the information, but why not just mention this IN PERSON at check-in? Same look from staff at desk as with other requests - like it was some sort of really strange comment or question. Is it really strange that you would tell someone the choices about charges to their bill in person instead of texting it to them?? Just one last little thing... the alarms in our rooms went off at 5am the first morning. Had obviously been set by another guest, but not a great way to start a relaxing stay. Housekeeping should check and turn alarms off after last guest check out.

    One of the more breathtaking views of Pismo Beach. Sunsets here are incredible. The rooms are fantastic. Large areas with everything you need. However, the bed is a bit stiff. Like slab of wood stiff. Could be by design as we have stayed at both and they equally uncomfortable. But, if you are more interested in the view, the patio, the game area, a decent breakfast, you will absolutely love this place. Perfect for families! Might be overkill for a couple.

  • Oct 18, 2017 by Nic T.

    A nice stay. I always get the same cliff side room, and it's a great view. My dog is family, and goes everywhere with me. If you're the same, this is the place for you. Dog friendly and pretty clean rooms for being so. My only complaint is they do not have room service. I love enjoying my room and really wish that was an option.

  • Oct 13, 2017 by Matthew A

    We just stayed the night on our way home from Reno. The proprietor was very nice, and offered a discount on the room, since it was after peak season. She showed us the room before booking us in, to make sure we were happy with it. We got to talking, and she added an additional discount when we arranged for payment. The room was spacious, and the kitchen and bathrooms had been recently updated. In every drawer and corner there was something there to make us comfortable. Dinner at the pier was within easy walking distance. Though we only stayed a night this would be a great place to stay a few days, especially with the kitchen. We got a "thank you" note when we got home. Nice touch!

  • Oct 11, 2017 by Lisa B

    What a nice place,and the management was great. Close to the beach, beer pub and coffee. The room was cute, clean and sweet. Candy on the counter, a nice touch. Will definitely come again! Thank you for a very pleasant stay!

  • Oct 06, 2017 by Diana Southern

    My husband and I stayed here for our wedding weekend in SLO in September, and it was fantastic. The staff went above and beyond to make our stay easy-going and memorable. Plus, we saw whales every morning -- both from the balcony in our room and at breakfast. It's perfect for families, too, since all the rooms are suites and have two full bathrooms.

    Highly recommend staying here!

  • Sep 26, 2017 by Brandi H.

    Very disappointing that I paid for what was a ocean front suite with the bedroom set way back near the elevator. I spend the extra money on a room that has a ocean front so I can lay in bed hearing the ocean, the waves and enjoy the beautiful beach atmosphere. Not the walking up and down of people in the halls or the elevator! My view is of a coke machine while laying in my bed, and or the TV of my neighbors or their toilet flushing! Too much money for this experience! If you want to sit on the couch near the kitchenette and see the beach then this ocean front room is for you.

  • Sep 23, 2017 by Kyle Marks

    Location is fantastic for an SLO county trip. Rooms are fine. We like the family suites, but they are certainly showing their age. Weird that there is a microwave and fridge, but no glasses or anything. Service has been good. Play deck is fun!

  • Sep 21, 2017 by Angie Hsu

    We walked along the beach side and I think we are pretty sure Pismo Lighthouse Suites is best located (next to a cliff) and has the biggest swimming pool. Although the SPA temp is quite low, it is still considered relaxing. With all the facilities on site (badminton, ping pong, mini golf and chess), you can choose to add another $50 for the units facing the beachline (awesome view).

    The breakfast is probably the most disappointed part to us but it still fed us well. The gym is quite small with only 3 machines, the staff is quite friendly and free coffee, tea and hot chocolate is offered in lobby.

    All units are either family suites (two bedrooms & two bathrooms) or one main bedroom and a living room. Spacious room!

    Only downside is weak wifi connection (I guess it's meant to remind us of enjoying the nature more  ◕‿◕ )

    Overall, 8/10

  • Sep 18, 2017 by Chris Priesol

    Great hotel. Big clean rooms, attentive staff, great location. Will stay here again.

  • Sep 17, 2017 by John N.

    Pretty nice place over looking the ocean and convienant location if you were spending your weekend at pismo beach like I was. They have free breakfast (which tasted kind of off but hey it's free) , ping pong tables, large chess sets, heated pool/jacuzzi. Rooms where pretty huge, we got a suite with 3 beds and it was kind of a 2 + 1 bed setup which was ideal.

  • Sep 14, 2017 by Shannen C.

    I booked a room here over the Labor Day weekend and the rates were a little higher compared to a lot of other hotels in the area, but overall Lighthouse Suites was worth it. Pros: -Large suites, good for families and larger parties that want to stay in one room and still have separate bathrooms. -Things to do, they have games and sports (i.e. ping pong table) in the center court of the hotel to entertain. We loved this! -Pool, looked nice and hear it was heated, too bad we didn't get to use it. -Beach, short walk to the beach and they have rooms that over look the beach. -Free breakfast, decent quality and better than nothing LOL - Parking and covered parking spots Cons: - We stayed on Labor Day and the room was kind of pricey, rates do change daily -Issue with water pressure, this was something I experienced where the water in the main room was super hot and I couldn't get it adjust. Since this was late at night  I wasn't able to notified hotel staff until the next day. This was frustrating, but I informed staff during check out and was issued a small credit for my trouble. Overall, satisfied with how staff handled it. -Room, the room was clean, not the most modern looking place but it was okay. Overall, good experience. I would return and would recommend Lighthouse Suites.

  • Sep 13, 2017 by Steven Wass

    The staff and the facilities made our trip wonderful!!! I will recommend this hotel and I will definitely be coming back.

  • Sep 08, 2017 by g l.

    GREAT hotel.  The only thing missing this past week was A/C.   Other than that, the hotel itself was clean, great views, and great staff.  The breakfast could have been a little better.

  • Sep 01, 2017 by Jerry C

    Great place. Very accommodating. Great free breakfast. Good leisure area

  • Aug 29, 2017 by slade0147

    Came again and again we had a good time. Place was super clean and grace was amazing. We will be back again. This is the only place that is nice and worth the money. Check in was right on time and we were greeted with a bright warm smile. If you come to pismo you must come here

  • Aug 22, 2017 by Vimmy Flores

    This is the nicest hotel I've stayed at it's very family-friendly they have games and all kinds of stuff for you to share the rooms are beautiful we had a dual Suite with two separate bedrooms view to the ocean to showers everything was really nice

  • Aug 16, 2017 by Sarah Wilson

    Loved Pismo Beach and the Lighthouse Suites were the perfect place to stay. Plenty of room for our family of 5, immaculate room. Receptionist incredibly helpful, coffee and cookies available at all times. Whale watching whilst kids played in the pool a real highlight!

  • Aug 15, 2017 by Mama0810 S.

    Stayed her a few nights a couple weeks ago and love the Pismo area.  Was here celebrating a friends birthday and they helped make it a great time for him.  They have a wonderful gathering area with so many game options like badminton, ping pong corn hole, etc.  Their breakfast was crowded even in the early morning hours, but had many options.  Would definitely stay here again as its a great location and downtown Pismo is walkable.  Would love to see them add a firepit for the chilly nights. More info from my stay can be found on tripadvisor.com.

  • Aug 15, 2017 by Lilit D.

    Mom booked this place for a 5 day family vacation. We got a two bedroom suite with my parents in the master suite and me, my brother, and my sister sharing the other suite. Check-in was fast and easy. We found parking right next to the elevator and went up to our room to check it out. The room was nice and clean with cute decorations such as the paddles, lifesavers, and lighthouse. While the master suite had great lighting, the other room did not. It is understandable as the master suite has the balcony and faces the ocean, while the other suite is at the back and only has a window that opens to a hallway. However, they should have brighter lamps or at least lamps that are closer to the entrance of the room instead of all the way at the back. My siblings and I would have to stumble around in the dark to get to the lamps to turn them on. In the master suite there is a mini-fridge and microwave with coffee and sugar packets. Now on to the amenities. They have a pool and jacuzzi which was great. The jacuzzi is pretty small and can't fit more than seven people. The pool is big and good for a nice morning swim. There are lounge chairs to tan and clean towels in case you forget to bring your own. In the middle of the complexes, there is a deck set up as a recreation area. Games include ping-pong, badminton, life-size chess, corn hole, and ladder toss. You can also request board games like LIFE, Monopoly, Candyland, Scrabble (my favorite) and others I don't remember.  There is also a room that they call a gym. It has a treadmill, stationary bike machine, and another machine. It also has a bathroom in the back and a water dispenser. They serve breakfast from 7am-10am in a room adjacent to the gym called the "Galley." They have items like eggs (served two ways), sausage, muffins, bread (which can be toasted using one of the two toasters), and cereal. However, the star of the show is definitely their waffles. They have three waffle machines which beep when the waffles are finished. They are served warm and yummy. Omigosh just remembering them makes my mouth water. LOL There is a small fridge where they keep butter, cream cheese, and jam. There is also a syrup machine. I personally ate my waffles with cream cheese and syrup which was greattttt. I really hate how its served only until 10am. And if you're thinking "No problem, I'll just wake up at 9:30, dress fast, and get there to eat" -- think again. Around 9 it starts getting more crowded and at 9:30 there is a huge influx of people rushing to get the food before it all runs out. So beware. The breakfast room is quite small, but there is outside seating. However, no one wants to sit outside in the mornings when it's cold and foggy so the inside seats are very sought after. The room service was good. It took them forever to get to our room. I understand that the hotel is big and can take some time to get to every room, but it should not take the entire day. In addition, they were about to not vacuum the floor. It was only after my mother asked if they could please vacuum the floor that they took out the vacuum. So what about the beach? Well it's quite a walk as others will tell you. You have to go around the pool and start walking down a walkway that goes past other hotels. The view of the ocean is beautiful as you walk down the walkway. Finally, you reach a set of stairs that lead you down to the beach. I have to admit, it is not a short walk and it is soooooo hard going back up the stairs after hanging out at the beach -- but it makes for a great workout LOL  After breakfast I would go down to pick up seashells from the beach that had washed onto shore the night before -- I would say to go around 9-10 am after breakfast. Unfortunately, I did not go into the water once during our stay because the water did not warm up. At least, that's how it felt to me. I was so ready to jump in and splash around, but it was too cold. However, I am from SoCal so I might be spoiled from the warm weather and nice water from down there. Just so you know: -If you cancel room service, you save $10 -Bring quarters with you for both the laundry room if you plan to use the washer&dryer, and for the ping-pong balls which are 25 cents Overall, great place to stay!

    Best view of the Pacific possible. Big spacious family rooms with outside area. Right off the freeway. Every polite staff. Best thing was the...“Warm breakfast, foggy morning. Beautiful decor .

    We loved the location, we were within walking/skateboarding distance of everything! The parking spaces are very compact so luckily we have a Honda sedan. But again, being within walking distance we didn't have to find parking. There is no swimming pool, but our family didn't need one because its only one block to the beach! The hostess Grace greeted us warmly and we felt very welcome. Room was spotless and decor was very modern. I only knocked off stars for the very tiny bathroom, which was a bit difficult for our family of 4 and also because both beds - the full size mattresses in room 3 squeaked with every move. But other than that, we loved the gracious hostess so much that we cant wait to go back! We are willing to try a different room next time ;)

  • Jul 30, 2017 by B.H. C.

    Great place to stay - worth the price if you take advantage of all of the amenities...games, close to the beach, close to all of Pismo's shops restaurants. The 2bath suite was perfect for two adults and two teens.

  • Jul 28, 2017 by Jana S.

    This hotel had it all for our family. I had called and spoke to Cheo after checking into another hotel that we were unhappy with. Cheo and Jason took care of making sure we had details that we needed to make the change to this hotel. We were pleasantly surprised at the room we were able to get! We were traveling with a 19, 18 and 16 year old. We had one room and bathroom for us and then there was also another room and bathroom for the kids! Since we were getting a room the night before, we weren't able to get two queens in their room but Jason made sure that we had a blow up mattress set up so all three teens were comfortable. They were able to get ready for the day in their space and we enjoyed having our own space. The kids enjoyed playing ping pong and checkers with each other. We also made use of the trail down to the beach below. We rented the kids wet suits and they enjoyed their time with boogie boards in the ocean. Also, my daughter and husband enjoyed getting coffee and taking a stroll in the early morning down to the beach and looked for shells together.  This hotel was also the first time that we found a dedicated person running the waffle machine (3 of them)  in the breakfast room. This was very efficient and made the breakfast rush go much more smoothly. Even though we didn't have an ocean view room , we could still see the ocean from our balcony. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves at this hotel and very happy to have stayed here. We will be back!

  • Jul 25, 2017 by C R.

  • Jul 18, 2017 by Preet K.

    Perfect family suite, we booked 1 kind bed attached with 2 queen bed and  2 bathrooms. The atmosphere was peacful and family like with a lot options for kids and adults to play and have fun. We got the oceanfront view which was just beautiful. In addition, the breakfast included so many options for everyone. Highly recommended place to stay safe with family.

  • Jul 15, 2017 by Chris Blair

    We've stayed here multiple times, and it is a great hotel for families. Really big rooms, good free breakfast, and lots of activities for the kids.

  • Jul 14, 2017 by Apps Purchase

    The rooms are quite nice especially if you are staying with children. There are several activities at the hotel which again is excellent for children. Breakfast is included which adds to the value. I would stay here again.

  • Jul 04, 2017 by jeffcain50

    Wow! Impresses by service and rooms. Great place, especially in the off-season.

  • Jun 30, 2017 by Wingnut FPV

    Had a great stay. Dog friendly! The ocean view suite is worth the price for the view alone. But quick access to for your dog and the ocean breeze is a big plus. Also a quick walk down the stair pathway for an awesome beach play area.

  • Jun 29, 2017 by Ravi Narayanan

    Succinctly, This is God send for families with young kids. Plenty of space and plenty to do within the 'resort'.. you will love it.

  • Jun 27, 2017 by Tara B.

    Gorgeous rooms! We have a two room suite with one king bed in one room with a balcony off of it and another room with two queens. Both sides have their own bathroom and TV. Not unreasonably priced. $249 for 5 of us(4 adults and 1 child). Ping pong tables, giant chess set, and other games available just outside the lobby. Extended continental breakfast buffet included. Beds seem comfy. So far so good! If anything changes during the night, I'll be back to update this! If night, come and spend the night in one of their super spacious and clean rooms! You won't be disappointed!

  • Jun 22, 2017 by Mark Krel

    With two small children who are difficult sleepers, the separate bedrooms are a must. This is the only hotel in town that has separate bedrooms. Unfortunately, in the eastern bedroom, the picture window abuts the freeway and there was a lot of road noise and the western room could not be made dark enough for daytime naps. That said, we do plan to stay here again and would certainly recommend the hotel to others, especially if traveling with small children.

  • Jun 12, 2017 by Ernie Collatin

    Ugh, its been a few months and im still having withdrawals. I must go back! The Lighthouse is great, staff is super friendly, the views are amazing...you...must....stay....here

  • Jun 07, 2017 by Lori C.

    Great family suite for my in-laws, spouse, and two kids for 3 night stay. Staying here as I write this. The check in was busy at first, but they were very friendly and helpful. They had complimentary coffee, tea, and cookies in the lobby. There were two rooms inside the suite.   Unit # 1 is a king size bed by the patio end, has its own entertainment center/TV, table with two chairs, and the mini kitchenette area with fridge, microwave, coffee maker. Private bathroom #1. A door divides the hallway and you access the second bedroom through a thick curtain. Unit #2 has 2 queen beds and private bathroom #2. There is another TV and a sofa chair. There is a large window, and a couple of lamps for lighting. We didn't need to turn on the ceiling fan, as it was cool enough this time of year. The warmed pool was awesome with the ocean view in the back. I did use their laundry facility, which takes quarters only (1.25 wash, 1.50 dryer, I think) Breakfast was a great plus. There was someone making waffles for the guests, some protein, fruit, etc. There was plenty of parking. The gym was next to the breakfast room. This place almost has everything to make it 5 stars in our book, it would be great if they added a bathroom and shower or rinse area close to the pool. It would be nice if they had a few fire pits in a relaxing patio area. Overall, My family was very comfortable and felt safe so it has been a great experience for us. I Definitely recommend this place for families.

  • May 31, 2017 by Kimberly D.

    We will never not stay at this hotel if we are in the area, we LOVED it here. There are 5 of us and with 3 of them being children sometimes it's hard to find a place that feels like it has enough space but this hotel did not disappoint! The pool was clean and warm enough to get in, the kids never wanted to leave. Added bonus, our "partial view" was amazing!

  • May 29, 2017 by Stephanie M.

    Loved my stay here. The rooms are extremely big and very big. My kids loved it. Nice walk path to the beach. The breakfast here was extremely good eggs,turkey sausage, waffles etc Staff very friendly

  • May 23, 2017 by VanessaCortez A.

    This hotel was great! The rooms were spacious and each room had a private bathroom which my family needs lol. The hotel has a whole courtyard with a lot of activities for kids to do, they have a heated pool and hot tub that we enjoyed and they serve great breakfast that is free with the reservation of the hotel! It is pricey but you get what you pay for. A lot of reviews were complaining about no hot water and having holds on their credit cards but I loved the shower I had hot water whole time and there is a hold in credit card but they clearly state that in paper work you sign when you register at hotel. Overall I would recommend this place to anyone!

  • May 22, 2017 by A. R.

    What a treat!  Beautiful setting.  Rooms were great.  We stayed in family suite which was wonderful to have two bedrooms AND two bathrooms.  It was comfortable out, meaning it would have been too cool for the pool for this SoCal girl but the pool was heated and I loved enjoying the pool and view.  Great restaurants near by.  We will definitely be back again.  Wonderful way to start our long trip.

  • May 21, 2017 by John J.

    PLS was picked as our long overdue getaway and more as they are pet friendly!!!  Such a great place and since it was all about Ms. Morgan she had a blast.  To get to the beach from the hotel, walk south along the path of the next two locations and there are steps down to the beach. 76 exactly!!!!!  Not only did Mr. Morgan make it down and up, so did I.  Ms. Morgan had way to much fun running in the surf and retrieving her tennis ball.  Thanks to PLS for the great basket of treats for Ms. Morgan.  She plays with her stuffed dog to this day.  Yahoo!!!

  • May 18, 2017 by Joe G.

    Very clean and the staff is really great. Beautiful room and awesome view of the Pacific Ocean. Awesome restaurants nearby. The only negative, which is really minor, is the toilet paper is the really cheap type. Yes it is minor but it seems like the extra $1 a roll would be worth it in such a nice place.

  • May 17, 2017 by Sarah F.

    I'll start by saying this hotel is nice because the suites are spacious and clean. I stay in a lot of hotels and have high expectations of cleanliness. However, my recent stay was disappointing due to a major customer service issue with one of the girls at the front desk. She was rude to my mother, rude to me and then when I told her I didn't appreciate her tone to me as a paying customer, she was super condescending and very unprofessional. I contacted the GM and was sent to Voicemail and never got a call back. I will not be returning there in the future as a result of this. For about $1,000 I expect to be treated better and have a poor situation made right when I took the time to contact management about my issue. Disappointing to cross them off my list because I truly do love this place.

  • May 17, 2017 by dhjnsn

    If you don't need a swimming pool, this place is great. Very close to the pier and downtown. Rooms are decorated very nice. Nice lady...who would appreciate your business. I recommend this place to my friends.

    Clean rooms and friendly staff. Came here on our mini honeymoon with the kids and mother and law and did not expect it to be so awesome. We upgrade to partial ocean view room had a balcony and to our surprise it was two separate rooms the rooms are honestly beautifully decorated. Free breakfast in the mornings jacuzzi and heated pool.

  • May 07, 2017 by Mary White

    Nice family beach hotel, very clean. Very noisy from traffic and other hotel guests but ear plugs did the trick. They could use an upgrade on towels and sheets and breakfast offerings considering the price. Pool and hot tub were spotless and very well maintained. The beds were harder than I like.

  • May 01, 2017 by Takako C.

    We stayed in an ocean front room. The view was amazing! Front desk staffs were very friendly. I was able to relax in the jacuzzi after sunset and it was awesome. There's no AC but you don't really need it as it cools down so much after sunset.

  • Apr 29, 2017 by Kathy D.

    We stayed here with our dog. It was wonderful. We had an amazing view of the ocean. We could walk to the beach or sit on the patio with our dog. They even had treats, a blanket, & a bowl for our dog. We will definitely stay here again!

    My boyfriend and I stayed here this past weekend and I'm so glad we did!  We were actually pretty bummed as most places had no availability for this weekend but boy did we get lucky!  We had the Ocean Front View Suite on the 2nd floor and we could not be happier with our room! It looks a little runned down from the outside but don't let that fool you as the rooms were very clean and well kept.  We had a bedroom, 2 bathrooms and an open living room area with a couch and not to mention, the best part... our balcony with the best view of the ocean!  Lots of free parking, complimentary wifi and breakfast, and the location is great.  I don't usually review hotel's but this one was too nice not to!  I would definitely stay here again if I ever come back to Pismo and I'd definitely recommend this hotel to friends as well!   *Also, the complimentary soap, shampoo and conditioner is all Bath & Body Works products...say what?!

    Grace, the hostess was great. Our room had a kitchen which was stocked with all of the little things you need on vacation. Our bed was comfortable. Our room was spotlessly clean as was the entire motel. The motel is within easy walking distant of all the places that make Pismo Beach a great vacation destination. We can wait to go back!

  • Mar 24, 2017 by Lisa B.

    This a nice place.  The family gives to 4 to 4.5 stars.  The family game area is outside and really fun, with a huge checker/chess board, mini golf, ping pong, and badminton.  The pool is heated and the boys enjoyed it, we also enjoyed the view from the pool.  Our room had a balcony with an ocean view.  The room was comfortable for our family of 4, with 2 separate rooms, a small fridge and microwave, and 2 bathrooms.  The breakfast was good, with a variety of hot and cold food, my favorite was the waffles.  The desk always had coffee, fresh baked cookies, and friendly staff.  They also had a few items for purchase.  The weather was cool when we visited so air conditioning was not needed, but there was a sign at the front desk stating that air conditioning is being put in all the rooms, we also saw the air conditioners being put in, (no inconvenience to us, though).  The only drawback was the temperature valves in the showers, Very challenging to get a temperature that didn't freeze or scald you, this does need to be fixed.  All in all, we would certainly go back there, it is on level with the quality of Courtyard by Marriott, with an awesome family orientation.

    Got a great last minute deal. 2 br suite with breakfast. A bit of an ocean view, tiny fitness room but nice amenities. Friendly staff and beach access.  Super nice find with charm!

  • Feb 27, 2017 by david turner

    Lovely decorated rooms. Very comfortable suite with fridge, microwave, coffee maker, etc. Very friendly and helpful hotel staff. We chose this hotel while attending a conference in the area. We enjoyed the beautiful hotel grounds and out door activities such as ping pong and putting green.

  • Feb 26, 2017 by Paul B.

    Very clean large suite with two separate bedrooms and comfortable beds. Located a few hundred feet from the beach along a walking path. Ping pong tables, putting greens and games like ladder ball are available as well as the pool and hot tub. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Feb 13, 2017 by Mindy C.

    First time here but have stayed at the Avila location previously.  Huge suite (3 beds!)  for very reasonable price on this long weekend.  I like that the mattresses are encased - no critters setting up shop in there.  I am always freaked out about taking home unwanted little visitors but this place is so clean I can relax just a bit.  The people above us seemed to be running laps at 2 am that is not the fault of the hotel.

  • Feb 05, 2017 by Rebecca M.

    We came to Pismo Beach for a visit & needed a hotel on short notice as we ended up making good time & getting in early then expected. We called Pismo Beach Lighthouse & were greeted by a very sweet woman. I was struck by how cheerful she was even though it was 11pm! We called other hotels & were not greeted as nicely. Luckily there was a vacancy & we were so happy we picked this place. It is a very clean hotel inside & out. The cost was way less then the other hotels in the area. We ended up staying 3 nights. There was a nice breakfast every morning. We would define recommend Pismo Beach Lighthouse for anyone staying in Pismo!

  • Jan 30, 2017 by arthur bryant

    This was our first visit but won't be our last to this beautiful property. I am sure it is very, very busy during the summer, etc. it was extremely quiet and relaxing during off-season. Enjoyed this very much after the hectic holiday season.

  • Jan 18, 2017 by April G.

    We almost always stay here in Pismo because our family is big. In the K/2Q there is enough room for 6/7 people in beds and you can fit several pack n play type little cribs. It's always been very clean, employees are friendly and accommodating. Honestly, the only thing I would change is the trash cans. These big family suites have two tiny (1 gallon) metal cans with liners that are one molecule thick. After 2+ nights you can't help but leave a little mess for housekeeping and I don't like to do that to them. Overall it's a great place to stay and a good value for your money.

  • Jan 16, 2017 by Elaine Y.

    Pismo Lighthouse Suites makes a really nice weekend getaway. Not only are they a short hike to the beach (~1.5 miles) but they also provide enough amenities to keep you busy if the beach is not your scene. They have the requisite gym and pool of course, but they also have an expansive rec area that includes various putting greens, 3 table tennis tables, a badminton court and a variety of other small games. Not your scene? No worries, the front desk also stocks a bunch of board games. Need a book? Right outside the lobby is a neighborhood library box. Really. They pretty much have it all covered. As for the suites, its more of a kitchenette than a full blown kitchen, but it'll get the job done. Room-wise, it looks fairly upgraded. Linens are clean and the face towels were super fluffy...couldn't say the same about the regular towels though. Fiji water is also a complementary refresher - nice! The only snafu about our room was that the door handle was installed upsidedown...we had to lift the handle to open our door. Room 2104 in case you are interested. Hot breakfast is included, with the staples of waffles, toast, bacon, and eggs and a variety of other basic breakfast goods (oatmeal, coffee, yogurt, fruit, etc). They actually have a staff member full time at the waffle station which really helps expedite the situation and keeps the area impeccably clean. When the crowd dies down, the staff makes rounds to ensure that you have everything you need and will also help clear your table. Great stay. Will stay again when in Pismo.

    The rooms were spacious. The walk to the beach was easy, even with the stairs. Staff was so friendly and helpful. The hotel was not too far from town. The parking was easy. The view was wonderful from all locations.

    Such a friendly staff and everything is so accessible. The suite we had was SO clean and presentable. Love the play deck area. So close to the beach. Would come back here again!

  • Jan 05, 2017 by scott hernandez

    We stayed at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites for one night on our travels up the coast. The 1-BR suite was huge, with 2 full bathrooms, small kitchenette and every little amenity you could hope to have on hand. Exceptionally clean and comfortable -- firm beds and excellent water pressure. We were on the ground floor, with a nice patio and easy access to the ocean-front pathway. The only negative is that the rooms are not very sound-proof -- you do hear neighboring guests. Our daughters enjoyed the game deck with ping pong, corn hole, etc. The complimentary breakfast was very substantive -- eggs, bacon, make your own waffles, many cereal options, many pastries/breads, etc. A great choice for families.

  • Jan 03, 2017 by Amanda Price

    The grounds are nice, rooms are clean and staff friendly and helpful. Beds are comfortable and breakfast included is always a plus! Lots of fun games to play on the grounds, giant chess game, badminton and table tennis.

  • Dec 11, 2016 by Veggiegrl A.

    We love staying here. Rooms are clean , prices are reasonable and the ocean views are amazing.

  • Nov 30, 2016 by Shannon C.

    I've stayed here several times. The suites are very clean and the staff attentive.  They have a heated pool and spa.  The views of the ocean from the cliffside are gorgeous and the walkways make for a very nice stroll.  If you're up for it, the walkway leads past other hotels to a stairway that goes down to the beach below.  The free breakfast is nice (the fresh made waffles are the best part, of course) with tables inside and patio seating just outside.  The patio seating has views of the ocean.  My only complaint (and it's a BIG one) is that the rooms are soooo hot and stuffy every time we've been here and we've been here when it's hot AND when it's been cold and rainy.  The suites don't have AC and the air flow in the room when the windows are open is not good.  We often have a hard time sleeping because it's so warm.  Other than that, the Pismo Lighthouse Suites are great.  We just wish they'd install ACs.

    We stayed here thanks to Yelp's awesome South Bay Silicon Valley Ticket Giveaway: Bubblyfest By The Sea (San Luis Obispo). Not only did we win complimentary admission to the Bubblyfest, but we also scored 2 nights at Pismo Lighthouse Suites! The hotel was conveniently located in Pismo Beach, about 5 minutes away from downtown Pismo Beach and 15 minutes away from downtown San Luis Obispo. They have a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean and a private deck for each room. Our room had 2 beds, 2 bathrooms, a living room, and kitchen with everything that we needed. The rooms were clean, spacious, and decorated with cute ocean and beach themed lamps, bedding, and artwork. Pismo Lighthouse Suites is very family friendly, with a large game deck with ping pong, badminton, and giant chess. They also have a pool and complimentary continental breakfast. The breakfast was simple but sufficient: eggs, bacon, cereal, oatmeal, waffles, yogurt, fruit, etc. *At the front desk, they have free freshly baked cookies *Rooms do not have A/C, but there is a fan above the beds *Free parking *Friendly service

  • Nov 07, 2016 by Judy B.

    Fabulous place.    The rooms are new and clean and very large.    Ocean front suites available with the sound of pounding waves, smell of the ocean and cool moist breeze.

  • Nov 01, 2016 by Diana T.

    We stayed here this past weekend for our wedding. While the grounds were clean and the suites provided ample room for our families, we encountered some major issues: 1. Upon walking into our suite, the temperature was stifling hot even though it was a cool rainy weekend. The thermostat only allows for heat if turned on. We were given a fan and left the windows and patio door open the entire weekend and it never cooled down. 2. When we checked in, we were told that our card would be charged a hold of $50 per night that would be released upon checking out. My husband clarified that it would not be for the entire amount. When I checked my account, they had held the amount of the entire stay. 3. Being a pet friendly hotel, we were excited to bring our animal who happens to be a service dog. We took her to the breakfast room. And we were questioned twice by staff. The second time we were not only questioned but also instructed to remove her. An establishment cannot question the validity of a service animal once it has been identified as such because it forces the owner to publicly disclose private medical information. 4.  2 days after checking out, my father told me that his credit card was held for double the amount that was due at checkout and there is still a hold by the hotel even though we checked out and paid TWO DAYS AGO.

  • Nov 01, 2016 by jo f.

    I would NEVER NEVER suggest staying here.  My family booked 3 suites here for my wedding weekend.  When we checked in we signed an agreement for the room rate and I specifically asked the counter person how much they would be authorizing our card for.  She specifically said $50 and a $100 deposit for incidentals.  I joked okay just wanting to make sure you are going to do what you say you are.  But really I was just concerned because my father actually planned to put the room on his card and pay for it when he got there two hours later.  Before that two hours was up the hotel had authorized the whole stay on my card.  Oh well...I know holds are put on cards but I just expected the staff there to be able to tell me what they would charge when asked, so that I could make arrangements.  What's worse is we are in a dog friendly hotel and my dog is a service dog but when I go to the continental breakfast... I am asked if my dog is a service dog and I tell them yes, the staff tells me I still have to leave.  So strike number three comes when I am checking out and my father in law wants to confirm the charge is squared away and the front desk person asks for two cards for the rooms because the rooms are still under two different names. This should have been fixed the first day when my father in law arrived and they released the hold on my card and put a hold on hsi card for the stay of both rooms.  STRIKE FOUR COMES ON TUESDAY, TWO DAYS AFTER WE CHECK OUT.  WE HAVE FOUND THAT THE HOTEL HAS PUT A HOLD OF $2900 ON MY FATHER IN LAWS CARD. THAT IS 2X THE COST OF THE 2 ROOMS FOR 2 DAYS. When I talk to the front desk person she talked over me, made multiple terrible excuses that didn't even make sense.  I have to tell you, this experience has put a blight on the whole wedding experience and I do not suggest anyone that wants to make the most of sometime away and make it a memorable experience to stay here.

  • Oct 24, 2016 by Brooke M.

    We stayed here for one night this last weekend and had an amazing experience. This hotel puts the service standard bar sky high! From entering our room to see a table full of gifts and special touches, to exploring the amazing room and features, and then the grounds blew us away!! I can't wait to plan another trip to stay here again!!! The hotel meets the "romantic getaway", "family getaway", or "friends weekend" needs seamlessly. The 2 room/2 bath setup we had was both cozy and convenient. The grounds have so many opportunities for kids to have fun. It was just spectacular and we didn't want to leave!!

  • Oct 21, 2016 by Sara D.

    It's very nice.  Beds were comfortable. Good price for October.  2 queen beds in their own room with a mini refrigerator and microwave. Free Cookies at night.

  • Oct 14, 2016 by San N.

    One of the best hotels!  It's not brand new but it has all the amenities we needed for a family.  Two bedroom, two bathroom suite with a kitchenette, microwave, continental breakfast, fridge, ocean view, balcony, etc.  The list goes on. Great place and great price. Definitely staying here again!   Also, the place does not have AC but it looks like they are in the middle of renovation.

  • Oct 12, 2016 by flylikeahawk

    The Beachcomber only has 7 studio rooms, all on the second floor (no elevator) with 7 parking places below, a bit tight entering/leaving if you have a large car. There is no food service. Grace was a great host interested in assuring our stay was a good one. The Beachcomber has very nice, moderately large rooms with a comfortable king bed, a side chair and a small dining table with two chairs . A large armoir/TV-cabinet provides abundant storage - lots of drawers and hanger space. The decor is very pleasant and nicely done. Area rugs cover a portion of the wood floor and wall hangings add a nice touch - the theme is nautical. The kitchenette has a coffee/tea maker, microwave and small refrigerator. Salt/pepper/sugar, knives, wine opener, dishes, silverware, etc allow for dining in. Two ceiling fans provide nice circulation and a small built-in wall fireplace adds a nice touch for cool evenings. We spent two nights and the only complaint was with the loud, inconsiderate construction workers next door caming to work in the morning, but unless you are one who sleeps in this is a minor problem. All in all, a very nice comfortable room with a down home feel.

  • Oct 06, 2016 by briel

    This small inn has just seven rooms over a covered parking area. Our room had an excellent kitchenette, a king sized bed, and a compact bathroom which had a great overhead shower in the tub. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. There was a gas fireplace and large flatscreen t.v. The landing housed the ice machine. The Internet connection was fast and reliable. We stayed at the weekend and Pismo is lively, however it was all quiet by ten and we slept well. We found great restaurants within a ten minute stroll. The beach was accessed in less than five minutes. You can walk for miles at the waters edge and we did. We spent 35 minutes walking in the surf with a sea otter keeping pace with us chomping his breakfast of clams!! We watched whales and dolphins from the pier. We sat on the beach and watched Peregrines and Osprey hunt. Pelican squadrons flew back and forth. We loved this little place, it had heart, looked after so well by Miss Grace. Is it an ultra modern boutique hotel - no, find that elsewhere.

  • Oct 01, 2016 by Carlie P.

    Here for work meetings. Clean meeting room and staff left us alone save for bringing in coffee. The best part was our ability to have fun during breaks because of  the giant games outside. We played badminton, table tennis, and checkers. Also tried out the swings and ate outside. Could have played putt putt or ladder golf too. Easy to relax and refresh during a long day.

  • Sep 27, 2016 by Leslie B.

    Wow!! GREAT family hotel. Really enjoyed our stay. We have already made reservations to return. We stayed in a 2 bedroom King/ 2 Queen partial ocean view family suite in the middle building on the second floor. Absolutely perfect for a family with teenagers, everyone gets their own bed/rooms. LOVED LOVED LOVED the game deck. Pool and Hot tub area was very nice and clean with a beautiful Ocean view.  Staff was GREAT everyone we came in contact with was really friendly and accommodating. The little extras like 24/7 coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and cookies in the lobby and the Bath and Bodyworks products were a really nice bonus. The breakfast was decent and what you'd expect for a hotel free breakfast. We  really liked the Belgian Waffles! TIP: if you order Pizza delivery Dells was recommend by the front desk and it was Fantastic!!  Probably one of the highlights of our trip was on the last day a Pod of  Dolphins gave us a show!  We first saw them from our balcony and then went down to the cliff near the pool and saw them up close. Very cool. Again REALLY enjoyed this Hotel looking forward to our return. Only Cons just like other reviewers stated "Noise" and "No A/C". The Family suite is 2 bedrooms. Our King room was in the back facing the Ocean and Best Western Hotel and we were fine other than some muffled noise through the walls occasionally,  but the 2 Queen room is in the front facing the middle of the hotel. Lots of noise from outside and anytime someone walked by it sounded like an Elephant! And with no A/C the window was kept open most of the time. It wasn't extreme but worth mentioning and the reason for my 4 instead of 5 Stars.

  • Sep 25, 2016 by Christine C.

    We stayed at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites. What a Bummer! This is not a quiet place for seniors to relax for a weekend. The first night was on the 2nd floor. All we could hear was a bunch of kids running around. A real zoo. Kids should be on ground level. So we told the front desk and they moved us to room 3310. The one with the jacuzzi tub and double shower. Only problem was it was right across from the galley where the breakfast is served.It opened at 7 in the morning. More noisemakers. We were trying to get some sleep. We had traveled a long distance and needed to sleep. To make matters worse there were people and kids in the pool next to our room. I have never heard of pool hours at 7 in the morning. I asked the front desk and they said sorry. Big deal. The room cost us 311 for one night. A ridiculous amount of dough for being bothered. I wish I could get a refund since I was ripped off. As we were leaving a large dog was barking on the 3rd floor. It was loud . Why would a dog be allowed to bother People? Very poor management. We won't  be returning.

  • Sep 23, 2016 by Melissa F.

    We have stayed here countless times and never disappointed. The check in staff is always helpful and kind. The rooms are very clean and well decorated. The bed is very comfortable so you won't have any trouble falling asleep. The shower heats up quick. The towels are great. Not the cheap thin kind that I've had before. We will defiantly stay here again!

  • Sep 22, 2016 by Bill S.

    We loved this hotel. Not high end, but perfect for families.  A midrange hotel near the beach and very clean. We were attending a wedding near Santa Barbara and decided to drive down the coast and stay in Pismo Beach one night. It was a really cool town sort of half beach town and half cowboy hangout. The hotel was great we had two separate rooms that were separated by two separate bathrooms. Great family hotel. It was almost like having two separate rooms. Since it was mid week we were able to get a pretty good rate on Expedia. The rate included free breakfast eggs, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, orange juice. Really outstanding. It was just a quick walk to the beach down a set of stairs.  Ping pong tables, oversized outdoor cheese board. Perfect place for a family. I would stay there again. Best of all the place was very clean according to my wife. She loved the stay.

  • Sep 15, 2016 by Andrew K.

    Awesome!  PLS is such a sweet place. The staff is courteous and efficient, the grounds are immaculately landscaped, and the rooms are enormous and well appointed. We got an oceanfront room with a 180 degree ocean view. There is a pool, hot tub, giant chess, ping pong, everything. Tons of stuff within walking distance. You can't go wrong at PLS!

  • Sep 06, 2016 by Andrew F.

    We have started taking an annual trip to Pismo and decided to try this hotel based off of their good reviews. It wasn't the Bates Motel by any means, but I don't think we'll be returning. PROS: The front desk service was attentive and friendly The room was clean and had everything we needed 2 bedroom, 2 bath suites are convenient for families Pool is nice, and hot tub is large Games deck is great for family fun Parking is ample CONS: Rooms have no AC. If it's hot outside, your room is hot. Pool area is on the north end of the complex, behind a 3 story building so it doesn't get full sunshine until the afternoon. "Free Breakfast" is crap. Fake eggs, canned fruit, theme park quality garbage. Really bad. Beds are a bit too hard for me You have to walk around the hotel, past another two hotels to access the stairway down to the beach. If this hotel were less expensive than others in the area, it would be OK, but they charge the same, or even a bit more than other hotels that have better layouts, amenities, food and location. The poor quality of the food is the real bummer. If it were even a notch better, I would have given them 3 stars. On to the next hotel...

  • Sep 04, 2016 by May D.

    So happy I found this hotel! We just left Redwood City and didn't know where to go next. We decided to drive down Pismo Beach. We love our two bedroom suite! It's well decorated (coastal decor) which we love. We enjoyed our water front view, large room and most of all....superb customer service! I didn't realize our stay includes with free breakfast and parking woohhoo! I blog and rate hotels all the time and Pismo Lighthouse Suites for sure passed with flying colors! Also, they gave us wine for our anniversary, may not cost a lot but it's the thought that counts! That kind of customer service really comes a longgg way. Thank you all for the great customer service! We will see you again in the future. Cheers! =.)

  • Aug 20, 2016 by Valerie V.

    The property was beautiful and extremely well maintained.  The rooms were clean, nicely decorated and spacious.  The courtyard and an amazing number of games for family entertainment,  badminton, ping pong, mini golf, etc.  We were able to watch, from the pool area several pods of dolphins playing.  The breakfast has an amazing amount of choices even fresh sliced strawberries.  The perfect spot for a family get away.

  • Aug 19, 2016 by Garrett408

    I don't know why this is in the B&B section. It is a motel. There is no breakfast, nor common area. Before booking my stay here, I made a list of negatives based on previous reviews, but I decided that the location, price, and all the positive reviews outweighed them. Some of the negatives turned out not to be problems after all, but some were true. This is what I found: 1. Unusable Wi-Fi: False. It was strong and fast. 2. Tight parking: True. 3. No elevator: True, but not a problem for me. 4. Shutters don't block out all light: Not a problem for me. 5. Noisy at night: Not a problem. There is no noise from the nearby businesses after 10pm. However, there were a few large pickup trucks in the adjacent dirt parking lot that left after 11pm, idled for 15 minutes before leaving, and roared around the block when they left. I wasn’t trying to sleep then, so that was OK. 6. Noisy in the morning: Much worse than expected. There is a building under construction one block to the northwest, and work starts at 6am. There was constant noise from the cement pouring machinery and the cement trucks all morning. In addition, garbage trucks and delivery trucks were driving around before 7am. I would not recommend staying here while the construction is going on. Even without the construction, the noise from the garbage trucks and delivery trucks will be bothersome for people who want to sleep past 6am.

  • Aug 16, 2016 by Deidra S.

    Great place to stay with kids.  We enjoyed the one night stop here and the kids had a blast. Pros 1.  Great location - not too far a walk to the beach. Although you walk through the back of other hotels and down a ton of stairs.   2.  Lots of kid activities - pool, yard games, ping pong, etc.  You can check out board games as well. 3.  Room was well decorated and spacious.  We had 2 full bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.  While our room didn't have a view, we didn't mind.  It was over the parking lot. 4.  Breakfast included: muffins, cereals, eggs, bacon, waffles, etc. 5.  Pool was heated. 6.  Easy check in and friendly staff.  They are even available for questions via text messaging. Cons 1.  Noise in the walkway and room above us. We didn't have it too bad, but I could see the rooms right by the elevator having lots of noise.  I would avoid those locations. 2.  Breakfast - really small room and lots of people.  We had to carry our food back to our room.  It's tough with 2 kids.

  • Aug 15, 2016 by Sally C.

    Absolutely loved our stay here! We had a 2 bedroom family suite and the rooms were comfortable, clean, and spacious...and the view was amazing! Even though we had partial ocean view. Plus, the beach is just a 5 minute walk! The breakfast was amazing because there was a lot to choose from... They had toast, yogurt, muffins, and even a waffle maker! The staff was on point and we even had our own virtual helper to text if we needed anything! Our family loved the play deck with the ping pong tables, badminton area, and mini golf! We spent hours just playing there.. Overall, if we are ever in Pismo beach again we will definitely be staying here!! They are the best!

  • Aug 08, 2016 by Rose S.

    We completely enjoyed everything about our stay here. It was very clean and comfy. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The day we checked in they had ice cream night, and an old fashioned ice cream truck rolled in and served free ice cream for all the quests (awesome!!!) This hotel is very family and pet friendly. The breakfast was delish, and many choices! The pool can get crowed, but that's expectant during the busy summer months. All in all we loved our stay at the Pismo lighthouse suites!!!! Wish we were back in Pismo. Oh.....need I mention the views are amazing!!!!! Ocean view is well worth it!!!

  • Jul 29, 2016 by Shari G

    We stayed at this adorable little place a few weeks ago. It only has 7 rooms. It's right downtown, close to everything! The woman Gracie runs a tight ship with this little place. Then entire place has been remodeled and there are so many extra little things that are included with this room. Super comfy beds (my husband wanted to take it home with us), lol. Each room has a little kitchen w/ a fridge, microwave and so much more. The manager cleans each room herself and it immaculate! We are headed back over next weekend. I can't say enough about this place. We love it ‼️

  • Jul 20, 2016 by Natalie U.

    Still loving it here. Most definitely our favorite place to stay in Pismo. Hot, fresh coffee? All day in the lobby...fresh cookies, yep, all day in the lobby too and as many as you want. Front desk are always helpful and cheery. Rooms decorated nicely, covered parking, plenty of activities for kids and adults alike which makes good for family bonding time. FYI, if you are up early and the tide is low, I walk behind the hotel and down the stairs to the beach access and turned right and discovered little "caves" and nooks. Thanks to the manager who had them open the breakfast area 1/2 early just for my husband and brother who were golfing very early for them to get a bite to eat. Now that's customer service over and beyond. Definitely will be back in a few months.

    Comfortable spacious room, comfy bed, convenient parking and good location. All at a reasonable price. Easy to walk around the town and to the pier. In an old-fashioned seaside town. Just what we needed after LA!

    We will absolutely return to The Beachcomber Inn... Beautiful room, lovely little snacks morning and evening. Awesome functioning kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave and coffee maker. Oh and did I mention you are in walking distance to EVERYTHING!!! Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    I am so happy that I discovered this hotel! It is perfect for family vacationing! I was on a hunt for a hotel that had a two bedroom suite to accommodate my big family. After researching so many hotels in the Pismo area, I found this gem! I called and booked it very easily and even got a AAA discount. It can be on the pricey side but worth every penny! They have a great cancellation policy if you need to make changes. It is not walking distance from the Pismo pier but it is a short drive away. Pros: -They offer a discount if you opt out for house keeping. -AAA discount -Spacious and very clean rooms! -MANY family things to do on the property -More than enough parking -Great and attentive customer service -I left some items in the hotel when I checked out and they called to let me know and they will be shipping them to my house. -Microwave and Fridge in the suite -2 bathrooms in the 2 bedroom suite -Balcony had a nice setup with table and chairs Cons: -Asked for a roll out bed and it wasn't disclosed that it was an extra DAILY charge. -Check in is at 4:00pm

    I am here right now and OMG!! This place is AMAZING!!!! Pay extra and get the King Ocean suite!! Breath taking views!! We are in the 3rd floor but I am thinking the second floor would have been best. Someone planted palm trees and it was difficult to see the pier. Again plenty of amazing views. Breakfast was amazing!! There is a waffle girl that makes all the waffles!! Line goes fast. Oh and rooms are amazing!! Huge over 900 square ft!! Like an apartment !!! I could go in and on this place is awesome!!!!  It is pricey but worth every penny

    Very nice hotel love the location and will be coming back thank you for the free breakfast

  • Jun 19, 2016 by Tera D.

    The suites were clean, big and had 2 full bathrooms, great place to sleep with cool ocean breezes, beautiful ocean views, comfy beds, family friendly property with a nice walk to a beautiful beach. Wonderful breakfast. We had a perfect weekend getaway. We will be back! Thank you lighthouse suites for a perfect time in pismo!

    Poorly insulated rooms (can hear other guests walking/talking above and below), slow wi-fi, however, good place for families.  Some on-site activites to keep the children busy for a while. Not much to do within walking distance. Small pool and jacuzzi , but adequate.  Clean, comfy rooms.  Overpriced.

  • May 13, 2016 by Rusty C.

    Clean rooms but the people above us are hearding sheep.  We called and complained but no change. We paid disneyland prices to stay here in a 2 bedroom suite, no ocean view, a beautiful view of the parking lot though... Oh ya! No hot water and the first time one of us used the restroom (#1) the toilet BROKE. Someone came to fix it and tried proving to us it worked and it wouldn't flush for him either and he just walked out of the room.

    The BeachComber Inn was truly a great find on a recent road trip. The location is great and Grace is definitely the "hostess with the mostess"; very gracious and friendly. We Stayed in room 7, which is a large and recently remodeled room with a bit of a view. We were very comfortable and were sorry we could not stay another night or two. Thank you Grace!

  • Apr 19, 2016 by Ben G.

    Our hotel room had a really good view of the ocean but the whole lay out of the room was funky. I just thought the bedroom would have the ocean view and not the living room. The rooms do get pretty hot inside and do not have air conditioning. When checking in the lady at the front desk seemed a little rude and not very helpful. We got a little confused because the lady wanted a card on file so we assumed we will not be getting charged but we did without any Information. The gym facility was disappointing to us. One of the main reasons we stayed at hotel was because we saw that the hotel had a gym. The gym was super tiny and only had a few cardio machines and just one bench. Overall hotel was clean with a good ocean view but definitely not worth the amount that we paid. If we visit pismo beach again we will book at a different hotel.

  • Apr 11, 2016 by rgmgeo

    The Inn is less than one block from the pier, one block from world famous SPLASHES and all the hot spots. The rooms are great, clean ,updated and very comfortable. The rooms have a refrig., microwave and a coffee maker with coffee. The manager Grace makes you feel at home and wants to make your stay wonderful. We have been going to the Beach Comber for over 15 years for our getaway. We highly recommend this place, you will love it. Ron Lake Almanor, Ca.

  • Apr 09, 2016 by Karen P.

    This is hands down one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. And THE most family friendliest places ever. Price was perfect. Staff was awesome , kind and patient to 4 weary dirty campers. Room was spotless. Showers were hot. Breakfast was generous. Outdoor Games for kids and family to enjoy. Hot tub and pools were clean and full of kids.

  • Apr 04, 2016 by Huda A.

    This hotel is an ocean front hotel, I stayed at the suite with king bed and it has a separate living area with a couch that has a pull queen bed. The patio has a great view.  Very clean and a beach house feel to it.  Warm breakfast included, (loved the waffles).  It's family friendly has a playing area that has table tennis, badminton and checker life size.(my kids loved it ) My only con with this place that the beach access is a good walk not close and very rocky, so we ended up taking the car driving to an easier access. If you are adventurous and rock climber it will be easy for you but with little kids I didn't want to take a chance. Overall loved it and loved the great staff. Thank you

  • Mar 28, 2016 by Jeremy A.

    We're staying in the 2 bedroom suite with an amazing view of the ocean - we can hear the soothing sounds of the waves from our suite.  The rooms are nicely decorated & spacious and the grounds are kid-friendly.  Staff and service is top notch.  The "family deck" offers a giant chess and checkers set, corn hole, miniature golf, ping pong and badminton which we took advantage of and enjoyed with our kids.  The complimentary breakfast (bacon, sausage, eggs, waffles, bagels, cereal, oatmeal, fruit, yogurt, coffee and tea - they must've took note from past reviews and "upgraded" the breakfast) is perfect for a jump start in the mornings while on vacation with the family.  The cookies in the lobby are an added bonus.  And can't beat the location - situated along the beach front.  Would definitely stay here again!

  • Mar 27, 2016 by Barbara D.

    Recently stayed for 3 nights in one of the oceanfront suites. The family traveling with us was put in the room next door and as we had ground level suites, it was easy to go back and forth on the patios. Jessica at the front desk provided exceptional service and the daily freshly baked cookies were a nice touch. The pool area was clean with plenty of clean towels and the windbreak surrounding it made for a nice view as it was clear. The suites were massive and had 2 full bathrooms. With a family of 4, this was very helpful. Mini kitchen with sink, fridge and microwave. The complimentary breakfast was just right and I appreciated that staff was keeping the Belgian waffle maker going non-stop. Loved that touch! The view on the porch every morning was perfect. Can't speak for the size of the other rooms or their views, but for our mid-March stay, at $323 per night, the oceanfront suites were well worth it. We will definitely be visiting again. We've read that there are no air conditioners so not sure how the Summer months would be, but for Spring Break we enjoyed it so much.

  • Mar 10, 2016 by Dan M.

    So my girlfriend and I were going from San Fran to LA and we decided to cut the drive into two days, so glad we decided on that because that's when we found this gem. There were no more king beds available so we got the two bedroom queen suite and it was amazing. We really didn't use the other bedroom but having two full bathrooms were great. No AC but being that it was March the fan and open windows were enough. We had a lovely balcony and a mini fridge and microwave (perfect for those waters). They served complimentary breakfast which consisted of waffles/eggs/bacon then various fruit and breads along with cereal and yogurt. Also assorted juices and coffee, it def hit the spot and it saved us some money as we didnt need to get breakfast after. The staff was very helpful, the whole grounds are amazing they have this court where they have a big chess board with mini golf (few holes) and a badminton court. You can also walk down to the rocks by the water and it was an amazing thing to see, def recommend it if u have the time. All in all We would def stay here again,it had everything we needed and had we not gone to LA for the rest of our trip we would have stayed here longer. A+++

  • Mar 03, 2016 by Steve W

    My wife and I had a very comfortable stay in room 7. It was a large, spotless room with a small kitchen. Some reviewers complained of noise, but it was quiet when we were there midweek in Winter. The night was chilly, and the gas fireplace in the room worked well.

  • Feb 23, 2016 by Joe R.

    I am a platinum member at a popular hotel chain. That said, I stay in a lot of hotels / rooms.  Pismo lighthouse suites has large extremely clean room.  Staff are very professional and polite.   Outstanding views and beach access too. " little walk down a flight of stairs" The pool is being refinished to match the rest of the place , clean and bright.  While the pool is being refinished you do have access to the pool very close next door. If you like , Parking underground to keep car out of hot sun. Large continental breakfast overlooking water.

  • Feb 03, 2016 by K F.

    This was a nice find. Not too expensive (it was the off season) and very dog friendly. Lots of things for the kids to do on the play deck plus you can get games from the front desk. Breakfast is served everyday with something for everyone. We has sausage and scrambled eggs and make your own waffles.  Nice pool and hot tub. This all suites hotel is right on the cliffs but only some rooms have the spectacular view. The pet fee was $30 per night but could be worse. I hope it does not increase. In fact, I hope it goes to $30 per stay. Our suite had two rooms each with their own tv and bathroom. The wifi reaches all across the property ;-)

  • Jan 31, 2016 by Cynthia J.

    Cute place, great service.... a little on the costly side but you are right on the ocean.  For what they charge though they can improve the comp breakfast maybe with some additional choices. Overall it is a very nice place, clean rooms and great staff... Oh and free cookies in the lobby = )

  • Jan 15, 2016 by Kelli H.

    Loved the view, loved how big the suite was. Plenty of room for two adults and two children. We were ocean front on the third floor. Amazing views! I am a view snob, and this by far passed the test. We loved sitting on the balcony, watching sunsets and listening to the ocean as we slept. Easy walk to the beach. Loves the path and stairway. Can't wait to come again.

  • Dec 29, 2015 by Jon A.

    Stayed here during a very cold December weekend so the AC complaint appearing a LOT in these reviews was not an issue.  No WAY I would stay ANYWHERE in the summer without AC.  Just NO.  The location of this hotel is perfect.  The staff is very friendly and accommodating.  The rooms are large and clean.  BUT...they lose 2 full stars because of the upstairs noise!  I swear the ceiling is made of 1/4" plywood.  We were on the first floor (where the family suites are).  Never again!  Stay on the 3rd floor but be prepared for the people under you to call and complain because ANY amount of walking, etc sounds like you're going to fall through to the people below.  That is the only problem I had with this hotel, but it is a HUGE problem.  They really need to get that fixed somehow. P.S.  if you are going to be spending time in Pismo Beach, do yourself a favor and have dinner or lunch at giuseppe's restaurant only a few blocks south on the same street.  BEST ITALIAN FOOD!!

  • Dec 27, 2015 by Garret S.

    I HATE to leave a negative review BUT....I only ask TWO things from any hotel I stay at- 1) Clean Room 2) Hot shower well 1 out of 2 doesn't cut it in my book This place is AWESOME, Beautiful, & very clean Room & view were awesome! but when you have to be out the door by 7 am and get NO hot water even after letting it run for 30 minutes you don't get a good rating from me! I feel even madder because there are water saving measures & incentives in place. I took a tepid (at best) shower & drove home with the Mrs for 3 hours after she couldn't get clean. That was fun! Every married man knows....... If Mama ain't happy, then ain't NOBODY happy!!!!! They offered to give me a break on the rate, but I had already paid. Besides, the room could have been free, but without a hot shower it would have still sucked! I know they feed off a main boiler & I realized our room was the farthest away but no hot shower is inexcusable They need to invest in a recirculating pump You probably won't have an issue if your up at a time when everyone else gets up. I actually would have given 5 stars if we had hot water I was a little leery staying at a "Pet Friendly" place but there is ample room for dogs to run around the rooms are well insulated for noise. Good Luck

  • Dec 06, 2015 by annechop

    We stayed here two nights and frantically organised this by phone on the way to Pismo beach. Staff were brilliant, old fashioned in that they took my reservation by phone and trusted that. This place has a 70s-80s decor, including the fake gas fireplace. I would love this if I was there in December. Kitsch but gorgeous. That aside, bed and pillows were outstanding. We were desperate for accom about four hours drive away as everything in the area was very expensive. We were on the way from Yosemite and had limited internet connection. Most places were $300 plus and we just wanted something basic. finally found this one. It is so much better than basic. Really spacious rooms, could self cater if you really wanted to. decor is dated if you really care about that! However I loved it. Flopped down on king size bed with floral cover. Staff super super friendly. Gave us a pen and two mini Toolkits.they didn't have to. They were so friendly and the place is a block from the beach and a mini walk from everything. If you love the beach, nostalgic beach experiences plus good, friendly service, try this. I'm almost reluctant to post this review in case it changes this place AND the staff who I would like to thank.

  • Nov 09, 2015 by Alix C.

    This hotel was so fun to stay at. Great activities in the outdoor area, a beautiful walkway overlooking the ocean, and they even have board games for you to check out and play in your room! So fun. The room was clean and nice. The shower had good pressure. We stayed in a suite with 2 rooms and there was plenty of room for 2 couples to stay comfortably and have privacy as well. We stayed in early Nov so they rooms were cool, but since it was sunny it did get a bit hot in the room at times. The rooms DO NOT have AC, so if you are planning your stay during the summer you might want to consider this.

  • Oct 10, 2015 by B J.

    This location is absolutely beautiful... right on the beach with a master suite of gigantic proportions.  Pool and jacuzzi right next door.  And no air conditioning. That's right, NO AC.   We checked in and it was 97 degrees outside, guess how much hotter it was in the room.  Trying to sleep was a total nightmare.  What's worse is they INTENTIONALLY don't notify visitors of this fact.  It's not mentioned anywhere on their site and they try and hide the fact until you're in the room and find out.  This is the only reason I have written a negative review is that Lighthouse intentionally misleads you because they know if it was advertised that there was no AC, they wouldn't snag nearly as many customers. For four hundred a night, I expect better amenities.  I checked out the following morning and stayed next door at the SeaCrest Hotel and enjoy the AC, they're even cheaper too.  Avoid Lighthouse at all costs.

  • Oct 04, 2015 by Meghan F.

    Wish I would have read these yelp reviews before booking. No AC. I understand the weather is nice and you don't ALWAYS need AC but sometimes you do. Especially late at night when it's really noisey and you just want to sleep. The rooms are spacious and comfortable but since it's a family suite hotel, there are a lot of people around.

  • Sep 27, 2015 by Cathie H

    The room was beautiful except there was no air conditioning. So you had to leave the windows open to keep cool. The coffee shop across the street has a speaker in their outside wall and played loud music until around 10 at night. You wouldn't really know except you have to keep your windows open because of not having air conditioning. There were also some young people with very loud engines in their trucks that were hanging out and being loud in an empty lot next door. No police where ever seen to break up the loud gathering. I needed to do some work on my computer and had to sit in a chair outside by the top of the stairs to get good Wi-Fi service. I guess that's why the noise in the lot next door was so annoying. We did love the room and the location, loved being able to walk to the pier and restaurants.

  • Sep 20, 2015 by Lynne S.

    If you are looking for a fun place to stay with little people the courtyard here makes this place a good choice.  There is giant chess, ping pong, mini golf, etc.  A downside is that there isn't any direct beach access from this facility.  There is a footpath to beach stairs but it's a bit of a hike through a few other hotels and maybe a hassle if you have small children and beach stuff.  Not a big deal but something to keep in mind. The bed, bedding, etcetera were ok and the rooms decorated in a cute beachy theme.  If going with children the suite set up is very family friendly.  The breakfast was decent and the staff friendly. Now for the cons.... The biggest issue is that there is no air conditioning- at all.  We had a courtyard room (booked by mistake- wanted ocean front) but that's my error so I own it.  This room was sweltering! The balcony was tiny and so HOT that we couldn't use it at all.  We roasted all night.  The ceiling fan helped with moving the hot air around but squeaked so much we finally had to turn it off.  The room was just above the parking lot load and unload area (as are all "courtyard" rooms) so there was a ton of noise which we could really hear because we had to leave the slider open so we didn't literally roast. There were also a lot of fumes from idling cars that came right into our room and again, we couldn't close the door due to the heat.  The hotel is also located on the freeway frontage road so we had traffic noise as well. Not a good nights sleep to say the least.   The pool is tiny and was PACKED with kids.  Don't get me wrong, we love kids, but it was SO noisy and there were no chairs available at the pool.  We also noticed that there isn't any seating set up for guests to enjoy the beautiful view.  The other hotels that you wander through on the way to the beach steps have tables, chairs, benches, etc nestled in for the convenience of the guests.   We've enjoyed the hotel in the past but I guess didn't visit during warmer weather.  Maybe now that our kiddos are bigger it just isn't a good fit anymore?

  • Sep 09, 2015 by Kat D.

    Views here are amazing! My husband and I were fortunate enough to get the oceanfront suite  and we're so glad we had the opportunity to get one. The room was huge! And the balcony was perfect and had a few chairs out there to enjoy the view!  We actually ended up pulling out the sofa bed so we could enjoy the ocean breeze and hear those waves! (The bed was surprisingly comfy). I would also like to point out that there is no A/C  so that could be a deciding factor in getting a room but it didn't bother us that much and there were fans in each room. (Hence why minus one star) They also have outdoor games like a giant chess set and badminton!

  • Sep 07, 2015 by Lisa S.

    The room was over 80 degrees all night. They do not have air conditioning. I even had the manager come up at 1:00 am so he could see that the room never cooled down. They brought a fan, but did not help even with the windows open. The only thing I got by opening the window was traffic noise and awakened by kids outside the window at 7:00 am. NOT THE PLACE TO STAY FOR A RELAXING VACATION I paid close to $200 for no sleep

  • Sep 02, 2015 by Hans K

    Wir guckten uns 3-4 andere Adressen an und landeten wieder hier. Warum? Weil alles stimmig war! Die Lage, ein schickes riesiges und helles Zimmer, alles bestens ausgestattet. Ebenso das beste Preis-, Leistungsverhältnis. Komplette Küchenausstattung, Safe, TV etc. Wer auf äußere Dinge wie Anlage, Garten, Aussicht etc. Wert legt, ist hier natürlich fehl am Platze. Wir würden hier immer wieder einkehren.

  • Sep 01, 2015 by Chris B

    Awesome place to stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. The room was excellent, plenty of space and well designed and decorated. All the features you could ask for. It's in a great location in the center of town and very close to the pier, restaurants and bars. Pismo Brewing Company right across the street. If you are looking for a place to stay in the Pismo area, no need looking any further, you simply can't do better than the Beach Comber!

  • Aug 30, 2015 by Elan H.

    No A/C!!!  How does a hotel not have a/c?  It's mind boggling to me.  The hotel is fairly nice but I wouldn't come here again unfortunately.

  • Aug 30, 2015 by Allison T.

    I don't care about anything else here right now, they don't have AC... Is that a joke?! 82 degrees in our room and won't cool off. Below 70 outside and 82 in here... I feel bad for our son trying to fall asleep. Worst part, I can see the AC Unit outside the best western next door... Never thought I'd say I should have stayed there. Plus super loud, outside is the elevator and ice machine and the balcony overlooks the lobby and parking lot, FML.

  • Aug 22, 2015 by Gordon P.

    We have been coming to this wonderful kid friendly hotel for the past several year. While we enjoyed our experience, the hotel felt a bit dirtier than our previous experiences, both in the room and around the property. We also smelled a lot of animal urine around the walkways and at the seating areas. I am hoping that the management makes a better effort to keep the property clean as we like coming here.

  • Aug 21, 2015 by Ali I.

    Love this nautical themed hotel. Everyone is very friendly and the views are beyond beautiful. Two bedroom / two bathroom family suites are the perfect size for a family of 5+. Some items important to mention : eat lunch/ dinner before you arrive or order food from one of the many restaurants who delver ASAP- getting anyone to deliver past 9pm is impossible. The beds are very firm ( for me) however, there are enough pillows for each bed to make it easier to sleep. Their outdoor activity center is fun for kids, but dress warm if you are attempting to play later in the evening, it does get windy and cold after 7pm. They do not have towels for the beach, so ensure you have beach towels if you're planning on heading down to the beach. No beach side service for chairs or umbrellas, so shade is not an option. Walking down to the beach does take around 5-10min and there are several flights of stairs. You will need to walk along two neighboring resorts before you hit the stairs. No showers are offered to wash off the sand, but we used the beach shower service at Seacrest.

  • Aug 17, 2015 by Jenn D.

    We love it here! Not our 1st stay and definitely not our last. The property is extremely clean and very well upkept! My kids love the game deck and the pool. Love how you can walk right to the beach on newly redone stairs!  The breakfast that is included is also top notch!! The coffee in the lobby is the best coffee ever! We get the 1 king 2 queen 2 bathroom suite and it is worth every penny!

  • Aug 14, 2015 by Sarah P.

    We always stay here and love it, in fact I really don't want anyone to know. Have come for years. Luxury rooms, today a huge group below our room is playing music so loud and guys are screaming playing frisbee on the lawn, no naps for us. I mean screaming. No enjoying the fabulous view and loud gets louder as they drink. Yes it is the beach and nothing like this has ever happened before but we specifically come to de stress and this isn't that. I feel so sad. But it really is good every year except this. It's a wonderful place to stay. Love the hotel. Not easy for them I'm sure. Super spot. Pismo is a fantastic weekend spot. The rooms are large, two bathrooms. Lovely.

  • Aug 12, 2015 by Kara L.

    We love Pismo Lighthouse Suites.  We have stayed here many times.  I have read through many reviews and I am surprised at some of the negative ones.  I will say it is a very family friendly hotel.  It has ping pong, miniature golf and a huge chess and checker board.   The breakfast is great and my kids love it. It does get crowded but you can make your own waffles, cereal, yogurt, bagels, muffins, oatmeal, etc.   We almost always have Matt at the front desk.  One time we (not the hotel) messed up our reservations and Matt worked very hard to fix it for us.  We had to transfer rooms but Matt made sure the transition was smooth and easy for us. Matt even shipped shoes back for us once that my kids left.  He is awesome!   Also, it can get loud but I do not feel it is any louder than most of the hotels we stay in. There are two different laundry areas and that is a bonus because we have four kids and always need to do laundry. The walk to the beach is beautiful and not too far.   My family walked to the pier and back every day and it is an easy walk (less than a mile) and you can shell hunt along the way. I have two four year old and they didn't think the walk was hard at all.   We could see whales and dolphins from our hotel room every day we were there. Air condition would be nice but I don't think it is necessary.  We were here in the middle of August and our room always had an ocean breeze and never got too hot. The rooms each have ceiling fans.   The decor is beachy and always seems fine to me. In our many times here, we have stayed in an ocean front suite, two king suite and one king and one double suite.  All have been great.   I guess if you want a romantic get away, this may not be the place.  There are always a lot of kids around.  But my parents come here often and get an ocean front suite and they love it. We will continue to return here every year for vacation.  It's a wonderful place to stay.

  • Aug 10, 2015 by sandral641

    We really enjoyed our stay here and although we were in room #7, the room was clean, the amenities were excellent, and our hostess, Rose, was extremely hospitable. Room #7 was a tad noisy for me but my husband slept like the proverbial log. This doesn't diminish my rating, though, because everything else was excellent. Great value for the location. We'll be back again!

  • Aug 09, 2015 by Emrlddrgn7

    This inn is fabulous! The rooms are beautiful and it feels like home. We stayed here three nights with our two kids and we could've stayed longer. It was only a block from the beach and close to everything. We parked our car and didn't drive again until we left. Our room was immaculate and stocked with everything that we might've needed. The mini-kitchen with the Keurig, microwave and fridge was super convenient for the family. The staff was very nice and Rose (I believe) worked so hard every morning getting the rooms cleaned. The kids were sad to leave as were us parents. I can't wait to return and thanks for everything!

  • Aug 09, 2015 by terry e

    We wanted/needed to get out of the triple-digit heat in the central valley for a few days so after doing quite a bit of research on the Internet we were impressed with the location and the pictures of the rooms. What can we say about the location... a block from the beach/pier/heart of Pismo! Our room had been remodeled to the T! Very comfortable, quiet at night yet within walking distance to some great places to eat. The hostesses, Grace and Rose were wonderful, informative, and treated us like old friends.

  • Aug 08, 2015 by Gina K.

    Stayed here for 5 days/4 nights with our 2 kids and dog. We booked an ocean-front unit, and because we had a dog, we had a ground floor unit. Pros: The views are truly breath taking! Room with a living room suite, pull out sofa, kitchenette Family friendly game deck with ping pong tables, badminton, putting greens, and giant chess/checkerboard. Board games available to check out. Pool and jacuzzi Short cliff side walk to the beach (huge flight of stairs that kills on the return walk) Dog friendly, with special dog blanket and bowl, plus dog treats. Continental breakfast included (but read the cons, too) Bath amenities were from Bath and Body Works :) Delicious complimentary cookies in the afternoon Clean (but see the cons) Friendly service Cons: Noise from the upstairs neighbors was really incredible. My husband wondered if it was normal for people to walk around like that. While I doubt they were marching erratically on purpose, it sure sounded like it. The breakfast room seemed to be a bit small for the number of guests, and the selection wasn't really worth the price. For the price we paid, they should add items such as bacon, ham or sausage and scrambled eggs. Bagels would be a nice addition too. They ran out of sliced wheat bread at 8:30 am one morning (breakfast is from 7am to 10 am), and when I asked for more they said they had none. However, when my husband went at 9:30, he said it was stocked and got some for my picky eating son. No AC. But we were able to keep our room tolerable by having the windows open and fans going most of the day. It was basically a choice between being unable to sleep due to a hot room or waking up with a dry mouth in the morning due to the ceiling fan. Not ideal, but I went with the latter. Cleaning staff. While very friendly, we found them to be not very thorough a few times. Once, they forgot to empty the trash under the sink. Another time, when asked to change the sheets, the master bedroom sheet was made, but not replaced (it had a small stain on it). And we found a cleaning spray bottle and rags on the chair in the bedroom. Bottom line: For our family, the pros outweighed the cons. Technically, I would rate this a 3 1/2, but I rounded up because we really did enjoy our stay here despite the cons. Would we come back? Yes!

    We have stayed at the BeachComber numerous times--its like home at Pismo. We like room 5 in the summer--its more quiet than our off-season favorite, # 7. 7 has a window over the comfy bed through which you can see the pier and ocean. It also has chairs and a little table right outside the door. But: There is a sandy parking lot directly adjacent to the north of the motel and the local kids hang out there in the evening making a lot of noise with their car sound systems. Also, right across the street is Hoagie's restaurant, one of Pismo's great little values in informal dining. (Be prepared to hear a lot of Reggae!)

    Their play deck is awesome. My son had a blast out there; mini golf, badminton, ping pong and ginormous chess/checkers board. The staff at the front counter was extremely friendly and welcoming! My gripe is with the rooms. We were in a 2room family suite across from the courtyard. Privacy is a bit lacking in these rooms. I was able to see my husband in the room when I was playing with my son across in the courtyard. I would have assumed they'd put some type of privacy glass but guess not. We made sure to keep our blinds closed after that. AC in the rooms is def needed, it was so hot and stuffy in there. My son kept complaining their room was too hot. The thermostat read 80 degrees and that's not comfortable for anyone. We tried to keep the sliding door open but the noises from the cars and people hanging out in the courtyard didn't let any of us sleep. There was also a spider in my sons bed. He said it was crawling on his arm and freaked him out. Needless to say he didn't want to sleep in that bed anymore. The family upstairs from us was a major pain too. They must have been running marathons all night. I know it's a family Hotel and sometimes kids are a little rambunctious , but show some common courtesy for others below. For the price we paid I expected a lot more. We've stayed at oceanfront suites that were  cheaper and better equipped than here. Next time we come to Pismo I'll look elsewhere before coming back here.

    My favorite family friendly hotel in Pismo. Close to a walkway to the beach. Lots of family entertainment and always very clean

  • Jul 26, 2015 by Sunny C.

    We had a very enjoyable few days at this property.  It's very family friendly, good for families.   The weather was perfect and there were lots of whales spouting right out in front of the property. Pros: - The suites are very large and comfortable (950 sq ft).  It's very convenient to have 2 baths - Rooms have decks and mini kitchenettes (microwave, sink, mini fridge) - It's well located for Pismo - on a cliff above the beach - in a quiet part of town.  The area near the pier is very crowded and a bit grungy.  You can walk to the pier but are away from the crowds. - The hotel is on a cliff above the beach, so you have to walk down a pathway and then about 100 steps down to the beach (about 5 mins in total) - but it is a lovely stretch of beach - not crowded at all.   - It's nice and breezy and at the end of the pathway so you don't have a lot of foot traffic. - Ocean front suites are wonderful - the views are fantastic (cannot speak for the other rooms) but the view makes a big difference.  It was delightful to spend time on the deck. - Staff is friendly and very helpful - Parking and breakfast are included - thus no hidden fees - Kids enjoyed playing on the game deck - Complimentary coffee and cookies in the lobby all day - On site laundry - There are a lot of cafes and places to eat within a few blocks of this hotel. Cons: - Pool area is very small and can get crowded.  Not a lot of shade for hot days, so it's not ideal for a day of lounging by the pool.  Can also feel a little over run with kids around the pool and game deck. - no cafe on site.  If you are spending the day at the pool/beach, you have to pack up and leave the property to get food or drinks - The bedrooms face the hallway, so you lose out on privacy and can hear people walk and talk in the hallways if you leave the windows open (which you will need to in the summer, as there is no AC and some days get very hot). - It's crazy expensive in the summer!  However, so does all of Pismo - you pay for the large and spacious rooms.  However, since parking, breakfast and wifi are included there are no resort fees or other hidden fees. Nice to have, but could be better: - Wifi is free but can be slow.  We did not have great wifi in the sitting room, but it worked well from the bedroom - Breakfast is included but very basic - cereal, coffee, a few pastries, toast and waffles.  No eggs or hot entrees. - Would be nice if they provided larger towels at the pool (which could be used for the beach as well) - Wish they had an on site cafe for lunch! The Ventana Grill next door is wonderful, as is the Shell Beach Brewery.

    Great location. The rooms make you feel like you're at your own beach house not a hotel. The room is spacious and very clean and the flooring,cabinet work and tile work is beautiful, Comfortable bed. We will be back

  • Jul 16, 2015 by cajun007Bakersfield

    Has to be cleanest hotel I have been too and the staff was great. Can't say enough good things about the lady who takes care of the place. Great location within easy walking distance from beach, pier, shopping and restaurants. Only one difficult thing was the parking. Tight space for a large truck but it was manageable.

  • Jul 15, 2015 by Kata K.

    What a beautiful hotel ... I was amazed that there is actually a hotel that looks like the pics.. Most hotels uses pics from when they first opened brand new everything with a professional photographer .. This hotel was very spacious new, updated and cheaper then the other crap holes I stayed in And over  paid!  The staff must of had laughing gas cause they were very cheerful and happy .. We will make this our spot everytime we come to Pismo...

  • Jul 06, 2015 by Wayfinders C

    Great place to stay, very close to the pier and beach. Room is spacious and very clean. Comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom. Short walk to the beach. Great place to walk to almost everything. We have stayed there twice.

  • Jul 03, 2015 by Vaughan M.

    Nice hotel. Rooms are huge, clean and great for families. The breakfast was average for that type of offering. I have had better at other, less popular hotel chains. We loved the activity area. Ping-pong, chess, badminton was available and fun. There were guests that were really noisy, and the Managment took no action to curtail the noise. We asked that our room get serviced during the day while we were out. We came back from the beach at 4:30 pm and the maid was in there. Not a day-killer, just unexpected. Beach, we didn't bring beach towels because we are traveling. The hotel sells them for $11. It is a little walk to the beach, not bad, you have to walk through a couple other hotels to get there. Once we were down on the sand, the beach was great. Overall the hotel was nice, I give it a lower rating because it has better potential if it improved on details. I would stay there again.

  • Jun 29, 2015 by Nancy W.

    I would easily recommend this hotel as it is both clean and affordable. That said, I do have a few comments regarding a recent stay.      The Good- The suites have great balconies off the living room. Wonderful to hear and sea the ocean. They have a pool and a variety of games you can borrow. Fun! I have stayed here a couple times and the rooms are always very quiet.   Both the sofa bed mattress and bedroom mattress were very comfortable. In fact, this is the best sofa bed mattress I have used. They don't charge for a third person. Awesome!      The Bad- They have no business advertising "free wi fi". Morning, afternoon, late at night the Internet was non-existent. Total ripoff.  I complained to the front desk and got a lame excuse about everybody being on at the same time. This is a ripoff and someone should report them for false advertising. The breakfast room is way too crowed and poorly maintained. Perhaps they should expand or move it elsewhere on the property. The water in the gym is not maintained either and is often empty. The water in the rooms is horrible. It smells and tastes bad. I regularly drink tap water and am not a water snob. But. I could not drink this stuff. All this considered I really like this place and will definitely be returning again. Would just like to see them do a few improvements.

  • Jun 25, 2015 by Eric V.

    This place is perfect for an ocean view suite! We stayed weekday so it was less busy in Pismo and the room rate was under $200, We got a corner room (3201) with amazing views facing Pismo Pier. Room size was more than needed for the two of us (probably 900 sf) and the furnishings in the room are charming. Breakfast was minimal but that didn't matter to us. We enjoyed walking the beach and the short stroll to "downtown" Pismo. Will definitely return,

  • Jun 16, 2015 by Corina M.

    ***Lindsay is amazing. Excellent/friendly customer service, she upgraded our room that was facing the freeway to a top floor ocean front room for an additional $60. This was after an elder, odd, awkward gentleman at the front desk told us the night before that he couldn't. He stated that "you didn't book with us, you booked with Expedia and I can't change anything because you booked with them"... WHATEVER. DON'T GET ME STARTED... WARNING: Freeway rooms are not worth it.. pay the slightly extra more amount for the ocean view rooms, they are truly amazing. ALSO, do not whatever you do, sleep on the sofa beds. We folded ours out & literally had the worst sleep of our lives. We woke up with sore backs, aching joints, & slept for 30 minutes at a time. I even tried sleeping on the little sitting-up sofa, but couldn't get comfy either... *The rooms are very well-maintained & decorated very cute. *Property is cute, located right on the beach *Walk to beach with new stairwell is a well-kept walk *Don't be fooled when they say HOT breakfast...... only the waffles are hot!!! The rest is cereal, breads, boiled eggs & a bowl of fruit. There is no other hot items such as bacon, sausage & egg (which is what everyone expects when a hotel says they serve a hot buffet breakfast) I'm so-so with this place. I wouldn't stay here again, but it is a nice property. & Shout out again to Lindsay for her great customer service.

  • May 30, 2015 by Matthew L.

    So it's 8:45pm and we have no hot water and to young children that need baths.  To be honest we should have stayed at oxnard suites just as nice and about half the price.  This place is nice but not worth 300 to 400 a night.  We will not come back because no hot water for $300 a night is bs.  So after we called to tell them there was no hot water they commented that the down stair unit has complained about us walking around.  It's 8 o clock really lol.  I just heard our neighbors baby cry maybe I should call in.  Seriously oxnard suites is the place to be with kids and two rooms but only one bathroom but it has hot water lol.

  • May 29, 2015 by Amala S.

    I spent memorial day weekend here with a few friends. The place is very clean, parking was easy and there is a great view of the ocean-its only a few feet away. They have a good breakfast including nice toasted bagels and waffles for the whole family. I was kind of disappointed with the fact there was only heat available in the room. We found ourselves over heated the majority of the time we were in our room. When we'd open the window our bed was inches from the hallway so we had people basically walking past our bedroom the entire night and the noise of the freeway kept us up. We had booked a double room from the photos, but when we got there it was much smaller and not the room we booked at all.

  • May 25, 2015 by Sue Y.

    First of all, I'm not a picky person who argues about the minor things, and don't really make a comment, but wanted to share my experience as I felt the overall review on this hotel is somewhat overrated. I booked two bedrooms for my family to spend a weekend. The hotel review was very good and it looked pretty nice from the advertised pictures. Even the hotel is located near ocean coastal with easy access to sea, our room didn't have the ocean view as the building with over two bedrooms (or family rooms) were located in the back of parking area. Because of the that, the front view from balcony was completely blocked by the front building and play ground (the place with chess and mini golf). I politely asked the receptionist whether she could put us on a higher floor, but her answer was cold no. The worst part was that that one of our two bed rooms was very close the hall alley, and people can see through from the window when they passed by. Also a lot of noise came from the hallway. I'm not very picky person, but this hotel was a complete disappointment for those have family over 5 people.

  • Apr 29, 2015 by Garrett S.

    Payed extra for "ocean front"  definitely great views and the end room 3210 was awesome with all the windows. Only view you can't see is the sunset .   We stayed in the less comfortable pull out bed to hear the ocean and feel the breeze. It was nice,  they should put the master bed in the front room for the sound and Windows alone.  Staff was awesome. The coffee/water/tea at the front is good. The games were fun as well.  Very clean and updated. My girlfriend and Loved this place.

  • Apr 22, 2015 by Deanna G

    My husband and I stayed at the Beachcomber for 3 nights in April and absolutely loved it!! Beautiful, comfortable, clean room with fireplace & kitchenette. Balcony. Super close to everything! Grace was very nice & gave us great tips. We'll definitely be back!!

  • Apr 18, 2015 by K M.

    One of the best places we have ever stayed with our family, esp needing a suite for kids and a kitchenette for snacks milk etc was perfect. Clean and very well decorated to feel like a vacation home instead of a typical hotel. Amazing and free activities right at the hotel: ping pong, mini golf, life size chess set, badminton. We played them all. Beautiful walk along the cliff to the ocean makes the distance not a bad thing. Even a free little book library and good parking.  We would go out of our way to stay here again.

  • Apr 15, 2015 by reneescf

    This was our 2nd time staying here and definately not our last! Grace is a wonderful owner and she really made us feel welcomed both times we stayed. I must address the noise that people complain about. This is something that is going to happen being that it's near the center of town, a parking lot and so close to the beach and restaurants. However, a little noise (we only got some noise on our 1st stay but it was minimal) is the only negative. If you tend to forget things, like i always do, I'm almost positive this place has thought of it. Shower caps, q-tips, utensils, cups, etc. The rooms are clean and cozy. Plenty of hot water and the kitchenette is a lifesaver! If you are one of the types to try and find something wrong with everything and not just enjoying this little gem then I suggest you just stay away. This place is great. Close to everything and remodeled. The owner does a wonderful job at making sure you enjoy your stay and is very accommodating. We won't be staying anywhere other than Beach Comber Inn

  • Apr 10, 2015 by Dawn H.

    This was a great hotel. I have a couple of recommendations for those who might stay here. 1.Always request a room on the top floor.  The insulation between floors is very poor and it sounds like a herd of elephants above you especially if there are children up there.2. Bring paper plates/napkins/utensils if you plan to use the microwave in your room. They have drawers and cupboards but they are completely empty.  3.Also, the family suites all appear to be at the rear of the property with "partial ocean view" which really means, no ocean view. FYI.  You look out onto the lobby and play deck attached to it as well as the buildings that actually do have an ocean view.  Otherwise, this was a lovely hotel. The staff was nice. Everything was clean. The continental breakfast was well stocked and delicious.  This hotel is located about 2 miles from down town Pismo. You could walk down to the Pier but it would be a bit of a haul. I would recommend this hotel to friends and family.... Just stay on the top floor ;)

  • Apr 04, 2015 by Jacqueline S.

    My husband and I stayed here for a night. The staff was gteat and very welcoming. Room was $400 for the night which was pricy for what it was. No AC either which was suprising. The place is packed with kids so If you are looking for quiet may not be the spot for you. Otherwise beautiful views!

  • Apr 02, 2015 by Dayrit-Lim S.

    we had a terrible experience at Pismo Lighthouse last weekend. We were confirmed for an ocean view room but when we checked in, they said they don't any room with view anymore. They placed us in a room with a window that opens to a hallway which is VERY NOISY at nighttime not only because of people walking but also the noise from the freeway. Since there is no AC, we have to open the window for air. We did not have good rest/sleep on the 2 nights we were there. I will not recommend this hotel nor stay there again.

  • Mar 28, 2015 by Melissa L.

    Love this place! Just came back from a weekend trip with the hubby. Front desk staff was very friendly upon check in and gave us info on where things were located and times for breakfast and pool. Parking is easy all around property and a few covered areas as well. We had a top floor ocean view king suite. Bedrooms are large and have ceiling fans! Ensuite bath with separate mirror & sink. Living room was a good size and had a mini bar & fridge area. There is also a second full bathroom off the living room. Yessss! Love having my own bathroom when we go places. Speeds things up so we can both get ready at the same time. Views are amazing from your private balcony. I love how there is separation walls so you can't see your neighbors on your balcony or people below you. We left the door open with screen closed all day so we could hear the wanes crashing on the shore. So relaxing :) The  playing deck was pretty fun and kept us entertained for about 2 hours. They have a small putting green, 3 ping pong tables, a badminton court and a life size chess board. ( Pieces are about 3ft tall). Didn't get a chance to swim this trip but last time we did it was nice and not overly crowded. Breakfast in the am is complimentary but is pretty standard. We have made this our go to hotel when we visit the Pismo Beach area because of their rooms, amenities and the view. We'll be back soon!!

  • Mar 17, 2015 by mdconway

    We celebrated my sixty-fifth birthday with two nights here, Thursday to Saturday. I had stayed here before a few times, but everything has been renovated and is even nicer than those times. We all enjoyed walking to breakfast and dinner, and strolling to the pier and the beach in just minutes. The basket of treats in the hall was a special temptation none of us could resist! The refrigerator and microwave meant we could reheat our leftovers from Rosa's Italian Restaurant. There was a lot of noise (garbage collectors, I think) early on Friday morning, and the town has its share of motorcycles, but none of it kept me from getting a good eight hours of sleep! The parking stalls are truly tiny and difficult if you don't have a compact car, but as we were two couples with only one car, Grace advised us we could use two spaces. (That helped until the late the second evening, when the only two spaces left were at opposite ends! Maybe we should have asked for a way to reserve two together.)Anyway, we'll go back again!

  • Mar 15, 2015 by J. F.

    I've stayed at this hotel a few times and it has been great.  This time however; it was noisy and I didn't get any sleep due to construction/renovation.  They were renovating the room above ours (all night long).  They did provide us with a different room but it was an inconvenience to move all our stuff after we just unpacked.  The jacuzzi was not available which is a must when you're on vacation.  A courtesy call would have been appreciated.  Customer service wasn't the best this visit either but it was just one lady in particular.  Still, I would stay here again.  Rooms are great and breakfast was good.

  • Mar 13, 2015 by Katherine K.

    Wonderful place to stop by for our babymoon. Gave us a wonderful ocean view. Easy access to the beach. Staff is friendly and overall just a wonderful place

  • Mar 10, 2015 by Jeff S.

    Overall an okay place to stay.  We had the largest ocean facing 1 bedroom suite on the top floor. It was great listening to the ocean waves.  The furnishings and bathroom are a little out dated and could use refurbishing.  Minor things like a hole in the couch cushion and a kitchenette with no plates, silverware or glasses were a bit disappointing.  Internet was painfully slow and at times didn't work.  Balcony was nice but the 2 small chairs were uncomfortable.  The "free" breakfast was always jammed with people, so be prepared.  The hot waffles were ok...everything else was cold and kind of Costco ish.  The outdoor jacuzzi was being repaired, which would have been good to know before we checked in, as they seemed to be working on it for a while. They very proudly accept dogs, but they charge $30 a day plus tax.  Total cost for Saturday and Sunday just over $700..probably not the best bargain in pismo.

  • Mar 08, 2015 by Randi M.

    Just stayed at the property for two nights.  Very friendly.  Suites are spacious.  Beautiful view from our suite.  Only negative is that there is no air conditioning.   The bedroom has no windows so it gets stuffy in the bedroom.   The living room has the sliding glass doors which we opened at night...but still no air in the bedroom.   I would definitely return to this property.   Good value and great views.

  • Feb 26, 2015 by Tracy W.

    This place had the perfect location. The staff at the front were very nice and accommodating. The only issue I have/had is in my suite with 2 bathrooms only one shower had hot water. I didn't (have not) let management know just yet because I didn't want to A. Go through the hassle of being moved to another room on the same floor and B. When housekeeping is cleaning, this is something that should have been identified or prior to me checking in. In any case, I would stay here again or recommend; however, they need to tighten up on their maintenance issues.. Thanks!

  • Feb 25, 2015 by Q H.

    We stayed for one night and it was a gem.  The positives:  free parking, clean, great place for families to stay at, walkway in the back that leads right down to the beach, free activities (ping pong, putting greens, badminton, large chess/checker board), and best is a free breakfast.  The best part of the breakfast was the self serve waffle station.  I never had a waffle machine growing up.  I know it's very sad, but not having one probably saved me a million calories at least. I would recommend getting a room with an ocean view because it's pretty awesome to hear the waves.  The bad thing about it though were the damn gnats that came in when we opened the balcony screen door so I would watch out for that. The front staff was friendly.  We came before check-in time but they did all the check-in stuff and took down my phone number and called when the room was ready. The rooms remind me of living in an apartment. You can heard noise but it wasn't awful.

  • Feb 18, 2015 by Ben G.

    The rooms are good - above average in terms of layout, space and amenities. We have two teenage children and the two room suite was excellent. The down side is that these rooms are only available on the side of the property facing the freeway. The road noise from traffic funnels into the suite directly. If you are in an ocean facing or partial ocean facing room you will be okay, but those do not have the double rooms. I was hoping for a relaxing beach side hotel with the sound of waves and instead got Hwy 101 trucks and motorbikes. The breakfast is Hampton Inn level - the DIY waffles, Costco mini muffins, cold boiled eggs and coffee style. No hot food and the Galley is crowded with families fighting over the toasters. Not bad, but a bit of a scrum. The WiFi is awful. You'll be lucky to connect and then get disconnected regularly. A call to the front desk let me know it was 'intermittent' and their tech company was working on it. Shame on Pismo Beach Lighthouse Suites for this. Finally, the hotel is not on the beach. It is a meandering walk through two other hotels to some stairs that go to the beach. There are a lot of hotels in this area and so don't expect a quiet get away. You are in hotel/motel land on the 101.

  • Feb 16, 2015 by Desi F.

    This hotel was just wonderful. A view of the ocean!  The room we stayed in was a queen.  There were two bathrooms and also a pullout queen bed.  Great for bug families that need a place to stay.  It was like a one bedroom apartment.  I enjoyed my stay here.  You can walk to the beach and relax.  Great place to stay!

  • Feb 14, 2015 by A C.

    This hotel is awesome! After scoring a great deal on Expedia for a premium king oceanfront suite we were super excited to come spend valentines and presidents weekend down in Pismo. Check-in was easy and the employees were very welcome. Our room was HUGE. With two separate rooms me two bathrooms it was so ideal. The balcony over looking the water and at the pier was gorgeous and so nice to wake up to the waves in the morning. There is so much to do and it really is the best hotel around, especially for a family. The breakfast was delicious and exactly what we needed to start our day. Couldn't have planned a better trip thanks to this awesome hotel.

  • Feb 12, 2015 by Clare M

    We loved our 2-night stay at the Beachcomber Inn. The newly-renovated room was charming, comfortable, spotless and had plenty of space to spread out. We even had a little gas log fireplace...how romantic! The bathroom sink area was tiled in stone and shells, and the decorations kept with the beach theme without being tacky. Easy walk across the road to the beach, restaurants and shops. We plan to go back next month.

  • Feb 01, 2015 by Rick L

    We stayed here in April because we had a wedding in Avila Beach and Avila was more expensive. The Beachcomber has cute remodeled modern beachy rooms, comfy beds, reasonably priced and a great location downtown. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I would stay here again. The hotel is located on top of the carport, there is no elevator. No problem for us but for some it could be tough using the stairs.

  • Jan 31, 2015 by Misty T.

    We loved our stay here Wednesday night and will definitely make this one of our go to places to stay on the central coast! Very very family friendly. I see that it is also pet friendly. Will definitely keep that in mind for our pup next time. We had a very reasonable rate for a suite with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The hotel offers free breakfast which was an awesome way for us to save money and had plenty of options for all of us. Little touches like free cookies at the check in desk, the very friendly and informative staff, you can check out board games and take them back to your room to play with your family, looks like they had some cool little activities in the courtyard as well. The property is in a great location as well. It is clear that this is a hotel that actually cares about their guest's experience and for that reason, I am going to be a regular customer! We also went and checked out the hotel's other location in Avila Beach. We will also be staying at that location as well. Thank you for the wonderful experience!

  • Jan 20, 2015 by Ozzy T.

    This is by far one of the most family friendly hotels I have ever stayed at. The deck play area has lifesize chess/checker, badminton and some putting greens with the pool overlooking the ocean above the cliffs. Its a martin resort which also operates the two Best Westerns down the street. The rooms were decorated pretty nice with the whole nautical theme. They were surprisingly quiet considering that the southbound 101 lanes are a stones throw away just above the hotel. The breakfast was average somewhat similar to the Best Western Shore Cliff Lodge breakfast next door. They also have a small library which is something you don't see too often at a hotel. The suites have two rooms and two bathrooms which is a big plus when you're staying with the family. The staff was friendly and pleasant which has seemed consistent at all the martin resort hotels I have stayed at. So if you got some kids and looking to stay in Pismo this place would probably be your best bet!

  • Dec 21, 2014 by Cindy E.

    I am so thoroughly impressed with this hotel!  Just the fact that there were two complete bedrooms and bathrooms in our room for a reasonable rate made our short trip with my family a terribly enjoyable one. The amenities are great too - very kid friendly. We enjoyed the heated pool very much, and the mini golf course. The breakfast is great, and there are many little perks to the hotel that were just nice little touches, like cookies  at check in and game boards and a free little library at the lobby. We stayed in one of the cheaper freeway side rooms, and it was still very quiet with a great view of the ocean. The only downside, and it's something out of their control, was the lack of beach access. We walked two+ properties over to access the beach only to find that it was high tide and we couldn't make it down there. Luckily it's not a far drive to Pismo.

  • Dec 18, 2014 by T M.

    I'm glad we found this place.  We stayed 2 nights in a king suite.  When we checked in, we advised the check in guy that we were there to celebrate my daughter's 3rd birthday, and he was nice enough to set us up with an awesome room and view!...granted it was middle of the week during the off season.  Meant alot to us nevertheless.   My family had a great time for being our first time at Pismo. Loved the location and the beach. we 'll be back hopefully sooner than later!

  • Nov 18, 2014 by Seann G.

    Loved the Man.  Me the wife and our 4 children had a Great time.. Rooms were super clean. Heated Pool and Spa.  My kids are 2, 10,12,17. We had a great time w the Ping Pong tables , putting greens, and the life size Chess Set.. Highly recommend this place.  Staff was always so nice.  So many workers constantly working to keep the place clean. Free Breakfast for a Family of 6 was Awesome..!! That alone saved the family $$$$$$. We will be back

  • Nov 16, 2014 by kel_ree21

    I absolutely love staying here! The rooms are so welcoming and cozy. Any time anyone even mentions staying in Pismo, I automatically think of staying here first. Great location from the Main Street and pier...Grace is a great host. I tell all my friends and family to stay here. You should too!!!

  • Nov 07, 2014 by Jim G

    My wife and I have been visiting Pismo Beach on a regular basis for nineteen years or more. It is one of our favorite go to places on the Central Coast. We have always walked by the BeachComber Inn while in town and have always asked ourselves,"why don't we stay here sometime"? We finally did. We were taken away at how lovely and relaxing the room was. All these years walking by and never staying there. Our mistake! Wonderful, Wonderful room. We stayed in room #7. This is a beach town and can become lively in the evenings. Not a problem for us. Morning deliveries for the establishments in town as well as trash pickup in the early AM will create some sound. It can get loud. Not to worry. Grace is fabulous. Very easy going. We will be staying here again. Loved it.

    This is a super hotel! Loved it and already can't wait to return. The suites are huge, like apartments. And they not only allow dogs, but they provide a doggie blanket and treats! If you get a floor on the ground level, you have a small gated outdoor area for the dogs. And you can walk just five minutes down to the beautiful beach. If you're super lazy, the view from the couch in the living area will do just fine. They have a small massage room on the premises. It's clear they don't have someone on staff, but they bring in someone if you make an appointment (which I did). It was a good massage--not super luxurious, but got the knots out. They have a pool and jacuzzi too. And a pretty good breakfast in the morning!

    This place is ok. You pay for what you get. Although as a New Englander who's not used to the heat, I wish the room had Ac. I also wish the wifi was more steady. I do not recommend this place to those who are self employed and do not have kids.

    Unbelievably cheap good deal. $139 for a 2 bed 2 bath family suite. Between 2 couples made it a bargain and v comfortable also. Near the highway but double glazed so cancels the noise but very hot with no air con. Fridge, coffee  maker and microwave in room but no glasses or cups except paper which was odd. Good range breakfast  included. Overall very good value.

    Just spent an AMAZING weekend at the BeachComber Inn. BEAUTIFULLY furnished rooms and close to everything. Hostess was exceedingly helpful regarding local area! Great restaurants in the area such as Giuseppe's and Lidos. BE BACK SOON!!

  • Sep 16, 2014 by roadtripper777267

    Excellent location right by the beach with a very modern and well equipped room. Our host Grace was very friendly and efficient and showed us a few rooms to let us choose which suited us most. Under cover garage was just below rooms and very convenient. Would not go to anywhere else in Pismo Beach.

    My family and I had just stayed a week at the Lighthouse Suite; and I feel I must write this review for the sake of others. Staying at this hotel felt like staying at a frat house, to be frank. The management there did not feel in favor of being helpful to respectable paying guests. Besides the rock hard mattresses loud children or 'frat' parties will keep you up until early morning when staying here. A few of the incidents that happened here: One night we were all awoken to children screaming bloody murder running down the hallway at ONE in the morning. I was terrified and almost ran out of my room in horror because I thought something was happening. But then I noticed soon the screams were mixed with laughter and when I wandered to the balcony a few balconies away from ours children were throwing TONS of toys and objects off of theirs. There was another family observing this as well and when I looked down a security guard was standing witness to all of this and took NO ACTION. You have to be kidding me right? Not only was the security guard taking no action the dangers of having somebody walking confused by all the noise and being hit by an object falling from stories high is unacceptable! This running and screaming lasted for an hour and a half, I had called the desk and they interrupted me saying they were sending someone up to investigate then HUNG UP. Let's just say this was my first run ins with the horrible management. Another night, around 11pm at night, a huge party irrupted with yelling young adults going up and down from a packed room on the top floor with cases of alcohol. Music was blaring and a lot of stumbling loud drunks filled the hotel. I am pretty sure everyone could hear them, probably even neighboring hotels, they were THAT loud. They took up the pool and wrecked havoc among the hotel as management watched on. I saw a young couple have to leave their room next to the party and come down to game area late at night because of the rowdiness. They did not look pleased and the party went on for hours yet again with no stop till late hours of the night. The NEXT night was even worse. Another party irrupted and loud music from a party bus was right below our room. When we called the front desk they made an excuse yet again and hung up on us. Not being able to sleep probably really put a dent in our hopeful relaxation. I can't even believe myself that the hotel staff let this go on. We all felt really insulted and that they blatantly did not care, or maybe they were just flat out lazy. At some points I wanted to go try to deal with these situations because all I wanted was peace and quiet while I slept! And that isn't my job. The Lighthouse Suites has much potential with the beautiful décor and pleasant view of the pcean... if only they had the right staff.

    Arrived at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites and stayed for one night during my honeymoon trip up the California coast. It was a very pleasant stay. The staff is very friendly (thanks for the wine opener!). The rooms are beautiful and charming. Very spacious and clean. Great to hear the ocean and smell that beachy smell right from your room. Free breakfast!

  • Aug 30, 2014 by Tarra

    Cute rooms, great ocean views, complimentary breakfasts, one short walk to the beach! Great weekend getaway

  • Aug 09, 2014 by Leslie S.

    Loved this hotel. View from our room was amazing. We had an ocean front suite, I saw dolphins, seals, and even some whales from my balcony. Rooms were clean, complimentary breakfast was okay, not bad for a hotel that doesn't have a restaurant. Walk to beach was easy. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Aug 07, 2014 by Linh V.

    Gorgeous hotel! Pros: - Beach view - Complementary continental breakfast - Complementary cookies at the front desk - Pool + Hot tub - Fun game area! - Affordable! Cons: - Right off the freeway, so if your room is next to the freeway, it'll be loud! - Since it's right off the freeway, it's so hard to get to the hotel because the streets were busy & so many cars! - Parking seemed limited - NO AC! :( Definitely a gorgeous hotel to stay at in Pismo if you're on a budget!

  • Jul 29, 2014 by Thuy Dung N.

    I'm glad we had issues with our first hotel to end up at this one.  The suite was perfect! Our room faced the beach. The bathroom  separated the living room from the bedroom.  We had TWO bathrooms, which saved us a lot of time.  There was plenty of parking and the entertainment area (ping pong tables) was open late.

  • Jul 18, 2014 by thewonderdrummer

    The rooms here are beautifully appointed & very comfortable. Unfortunately it's across from an empty dirt lot full of weed-smoking "bros" (young men) and around the corner from a ton of bars, so it's never quiet. There was loud music & people walking by talking loudly all night. Minor complaint, but wifi is also listed, but no wifi was available during our stay. Also, as others have mentioned, parking is extremely tight, but once you're parked you're not really going in & out. Again, can't speak highly enough about the rooms, just wish the location was a bit more relaxing and quiet.

  • Jun 30, 2014 by Analyn B.

    my friend and I were on a road trip down HWY 1 and Pismo Beach was one of our stops. A friend of mine told me that they stayed at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites so we thought we give it a try. Luckily they had a Suite available with partial view of the ocean! The rooms were very nice and comfortable and the people at the front office were amazing! They served a complimentary continental breakfast and were up to par with the amount of people that were there. Ample amount of parking as well! Hot tub looked over the rocky cliffs which was really nice! all in all a great 1 night stay! thank you!

  • Jun 24, 2014 by Baylor H.

    This is the second time I stayed at this local chain and I really loved it. They have another location up the road at Avila beach and that campus is phenomenal. They serve an awesome breakfast that is often accompanied by a nice ocean side view. They have a hot tub and jacuzzi, which both overlook the rocky cliffs of pismo beach. Speaking of which, it takes just a few minutes to walk down to the Pismo beach pier from the hotel. Just walk past the pool and follow the path to some stairs that go down to the beach. The beach allows vehicles so you can easily rent a car or 4 wheeler nearby. The inn also has a main courtyard that has mega sized chess along with badminton, ping pong, and miniature golf, all for free! The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is plenty of parking year round and the spacing is nice. One place I recommend visiting nearby is Pirate's Cove, near Avila beach. It overlooks the ocean, and legend has it that there is buried treasure in the small bay. Thanks for reading! If you have time, follow me on Instagram @baylorhunstad

  • Jun 04, 2014 by Lynne S.

    We stay several times a year in Pismo and have stayed twice here.  Very clean, friendly people, good service.  View is the best anywhere for the price.  Walls are a bit thin, but noise is not bothersome.  Pool is busy and clean, housekeeping ladies do a great job. Beds comfortable, windows have blackout drapes for sleeping late. Sitting watching the Pismo pier and all sorts of marine life in the bay was the highlight of our trip. Thanks for making our mini-vacay perfect.

  • May 28, 2014 by Amanda T.

    Do not stay in room 1207. It's next to the elevator and ice machine. There are no a/c's in the rooms so if you need to leave the windows open,for the breeze so it's not stuffy, you get late nights and early wake ups from bratty kids at the elevator and people looking into your room. The breakfast is waffles, cereals, and tiny pastries. Plan on getting coffee from the front desk area because both days I went to the breakfast room they were out at 7 am and 8 am. Low water pressure in the showers.

  • May 26, 2014 by Ron R

    we absolutely fell in love with this place.we will be staying here from now on.and the service was excellent. Plus you are close to just about everything, and the prices were very reasonable. we can't wait tell we come back here.

  • May 24, 2014 by Missy K.

    Its fine. Rooms are clean. Good: location and clean 2 bathrooms in suites. Get the rooms with ocean view worth it especially if you bring your bikes. Bad: people who visit here are bit ghetto and red necks who bring tons of cheap beer on premise. Word of advice raise the room rates and get more amenities.

  • May 24, 2014 by Sunny D.

    This is an excellent family friendly spot to relax on the beach. The suites are spacious and I highly recommend it. Pets are welcome and there are lots of activities for the kids. There is no bellman, you have to handle luggage yourself. I didn't find that to be a big deal. Continental breakfast is served. The breakfast bar has many options. It's free, so check it out.

  • May 19, 2014 by Jim M.

    What a great place to stay, when traveling up or down the coast. From the 85° pool with the glass encloser so that you can enjoy the ocean views to the continental  breakfast at the Galley. The rooms are large ,clean and up to date with a great lighthouse decore and there is some coverd parking for the car that does not like the night dew in the morning. The staff was very freindly and let us check in about 2 hrs early with out any problems. All in all a great stay !

  • May 06, 2014 by Shea W.

    This hotel definitely surpasses my expectations for the trip. First, the property is beautifully landscaped and is well tended to. The employees at the front desk are very attentive and are ready to help with any questions. I was there with two girlfriends who were celebrating their birthday. We were interested in getting a room with an ocean view and were willing to pay the upgrade fee. The manager happened to be in the office at the time and upgrades us without any fee to celebrate. Once we got checked in and got into our room, we realized how beautiful the whole place is. Our room was very very clean and welcoming. We had a bottle of wine and two happy birthday glasses waiting for us to celebrate. As we moved to our patio, we saw the breathtaking view of the ocean and neighboring hotels. After a short walk (maybe 10 minutes), we were down on the beach. Everything about this hotel, from the views, the location, to the breakfast, was perfect! I will definitely be staying here soon with my husband!

  • Apr 25, 2014 by mitra g.

    We are staying at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites right now! This is my second stay here. I absolutely love this place. The location is awesome, the hotel is clean and comfortable. Your stay comes with continental breakfast. I admit the breakfast needs a little bit of improving, I've had much better quality continental breakfast at other hotels, but it is not a huge concern. The hotel is very child friendly. My 10 year old is loving her stay here. The staff is friendly and efficient. The hotel is near many restaurants and the rooms have either full ocean view or partial ocean view. The price is much more reasonable than other hotels on this stretch of oceanfront properties. The décor in the rooms is nautical and charming. Love this  place.

  • Mar 25, 2014 by Renan

    Tasty breakfest, near downtown and very comfy rooms

  • Feb 22, 2014 by JP I.

    We had a fantastic stay at this place. Everything was clean and in working order. One little issue (caused by us) was quickly resolved while we were out. Breakfast was included and most importantly the staff was all very friendly, courteous and helpful ... just the way it should be to make you feel very welcome. We got the family suite with 3 beds so we all could fit comfortably, in one room with two bathrooms, better than dealing with an extra bed or two separate rooms. And the price we got (with discount) was not bad either and certainly worth it.

  • Feb 22, 2014 by Sammy A.

    Super great service, OK priced, super clean and comfortable room, too parking, ocean views, mini golf course and play area.  We loved it!

  • Feb 20, 2014 by Peter L

    Pismo Beach seems a fun town, good for a seaside visit if you're travelling the Pacific Coast Highway. This is basically a motel, set a block away from the beach, which is within easy walking distance. Perfectly comfortable, though the coffee-maker didn't work in our room. No meals included, but there's a friendly diner opposite. Lovely pier for people- and sea-watching nearby. Good value stay.

  • Feb 11, 2014 by Dylan T.

    This was a cozy little respite for my gf and her parents.  We were able to get a 2 bedroom room that had separate bathroom which made it a very economical trip.  It would be great for other families.  There is a continental breakfast and small activities on-site to keep everyone happy.  The beach is right there and it's a short drive from where you can actually go into "town" and check out the local tourist sites.  They were really strict about check-out so just be sure you can get out in time.  They didn't harass us, but they were noticeably more forward than other hotels and B&B I've stayed at.

  • Feb 03, 2014 by Alma U.

    Booked a room for a Two Bedroom Oceanside Suite to celebrate my boyfriends 28th birthday. Spent the day riding ATV's then went for a Sushi dinner at Yunagi's (which I highly recommend). Our evening was ruined after a weird guy came out of his room to ask us to keep it down as we were walking to our room. I can't imagine we were being so loud that it warranted him coming out. Anyway, the situation escalated (unnecessarily) as a young girl from the front desk came out and rather than diffuse the situation, made it worse by demanding we went to our room. I was disappointed by the customer service received, it may not be reflective of the entire staff but the woman's bad attitude was enough to ruin the night. Tried to speak to a manager regarding the situation but the manager was dismissive and unprofessional in handling the situation as well. In the morning I realized why the man came out of his room. The walls are thin. You can hear the footsteps above you, people talking in the next room, and babies crying. I can imagine noise complaints being a regular thing here. This place caters to families. If you do not have children, I do not recommend you stay here BELIEVE ME. Room is not worth what we paid. I recommend looking into Kon Tiki or Dolphin Bay.

  • Jan 27, 2014 by Shandi A.

    Incredibly pleased with my stay! My boyfriend and I had been on a long road trip and decided to stop and stay in the area. My mom had stayed at this hotel before and recommended we check it out. So happy she told us to! We stayed in the deluxe king ocean view suite and couldn't have been more happy. Bedroom when you walk in and a huge living room with a small kitchenette. Two bathrooms, large vanity, and a large patio overlooking the ocean. Could we have possibly asked for more? It was so nice leaving the door cracked to hear the waves crashing on the ocean all night. We were sad to only be staying one night. We both hope to have a reason to return and stay at pismo lighthouse suites again! Btw...a hot tub overlooking the ocean? That was just what we needed after a long car drive. Thank you Pismo Lighthouse Suites! You exceeded our expectations by far!

  • Jan 20, 2014 by Toni D.

    When we come to the Pismo area we usually stay at Avila beach this year we stayed here at the Lighthouse suites it is a very relaxing place A short drive to all activities . I loved the ocean view from our room. The game area for the kids, and they have a great selection for the complimentary breakfast. The pleace is very clean and friendly.

  • Jan 11, 2014 by Jo S

    My husband and I come to Pismo Beach every year in December for our anniversary & Christmas~ We love the Beachcomber, Beautiful Rooms, everything you could possibly need, ~Very Clean and Comfortable all rooms come with a kitchenette~ within walking distance to the beach and all the little shops and restaurants, Grace is very friendly and she always makes us feel welcome she is always there if you need anything,We would highly reccomend The BeachComber Inn!

  • Jan 08, 2014 by Bware717

    This is a hidden gem of a hotel. The hotel is centrally located and close to the pier, shops, and restaurants. You are in walking distance from everything worthwhile. The rooms are remodeled with great little touches throughout the rooms. The room has a small kitchenette and even includes a Keurig machine and coffee. There are only seven rooms but they are all equally cozy with updated touches. The proprietor "Grace" is what makes the stay even more enjoyable. She is friendly and greets everyone with a smile. Grace is the reason I come back and stay at the Beachcomber on my trips to Pismo. Some "Travel advisors" have ranted that there is no "maid service" but there is if you follow the hotels simple room. Put your maid service sign on the door and Grace personally cleans the room. I had to change rooms due to me booking a last minute reservation and personally watched as Grace spent 45 minutes cleaning our upcoming room. The room was spotless and a shout out to Grace for her caring and hard work she puts into everyone's experience in staying at the Beachcomber. I highly recommend your stay at the Beachcomber.

  • Jan 05, 2014 by Bill R.

    The view from the ocean front room is great and the hotel is super dog friendly!!  I just wish they didn't go so cheap on everything else. :-(   For the price we paid for the "suite", you would assume there would be some sort of spoon or fork in the room.  You would be wrong.  There are a couple cups to go with the coffee maker but, if you want a spoon to stir your coffee, you will need to go to the lobby and get a plastic one from there.   The WiFi worked a couple times but, most if the time, it was down.  There are a lot of hotels offering free hot breakfast now days that includes scrambled eggs, some sort of breakfast sausage/bacon, and waffles.  Only expect to find waffles here.   There is a heated swimming pool and jacuzzi.  The pool is heated enough for small kids to play in but, no adults were interested  in tolerating it while we were there.  The jacuzzi is comparably "warm". The suite we were in had the bedroom just inside the door, which means we got to wake up looking at the parking lot instead of the ocean.  I'm not giving them a lower score because of that.  I posting it just so people know ahead of time. In general, the stay was decent if you are paying the basic internet rate.  If you are paying for a more memorable or relaxing stay, you will be disappointed.

    First, the scenery is quite stunning and the experience of being in a hotel room on the beach is just jaw-dropping. However, upon arrival, we found the gentleman greeter to be someone one might encounter as part of a horror movie. He also wasn't super friendly. We drove around and parked close to our hotel room before walking to the elevator, or car call as they call it. The suites are extremely close together... I mean, up in your face close. Once you walk in, the room is immediately to your left (or at least it was in our suite) and the living room is straight ahead. The pros are: Clean rooms 2 Bathrooms Over sized bath tub Living room Complementary breakfast Cons: Ocean can only be heard from the living room. Pool was under construction during our visit which no one told us about prior. The SeaCrest suites next door offers rooms that sport a bed room next to the ocean, which is of course the dream. Overall, the hotel is nice but there are definitely other options in Pismo that might meet the needs / desires of others more.

  • Dec 30, 2013 by Krista M.

    I LOVED our stay.  Our room was a ground floor pet friendly suite with 2 bathrooms a living room + TV, kitchenette and a separate bedroom with 2 queen beds + TV (sofa in living room could pull out to bed also and there was a door that you could close between the bedroom and living room).  We had a low railed enclosed deck outside that had 2 comfortable chairs and a screen door we could leave open to get the ocean sounds and breeze while in the room.  We were allowed to leave our small dog in room with privacy sign on for short periods of time with the understanding that they would call me if there was any problem.  We really felt comfortable there as most guests seemed to.  It is really set up well to enjoy the room and outdoors, with comfortable seating and long pretty walking trails. The badminton court was a real hit with us and our 2 teen daughters - we would eat breakfast then play ping pong while waiting for a turn.  We also enjoyed the pool and hot tub and gym.  The beach access was fantastic, Pismo beach is wide and long with soft sand, and you can get a really decent (1-2 mile) beautiful walk to town/pier along the beach.  There are beach shops, frozen yogurt, small bowling alleys and restaurants there at the pier base.  We stopped by to see the Monarch butterfly grove only 5 min by car drive away and we also visited San Luis Obispo for a day trip- only a 15 min drive. There is lots of dining and shopping in SLO downtown. This is a destination hotel where you feel welcome and at ease just staying there and enjoying the beach and town. I would definitely recommend to families.  Kids didn't overrun the place either - maybe because they were happy/busy and many were tween/ teens.

  • Dec 02, 2013 by Lorna K

    We had a lovely time, the room was so cozy and darling decorations..The kitchenette was a plus, the room was very clean.Loved all the special touches, we will be back !! Thank you Grace !! J & L Owens

  • Nov 09, 2013 by Ian P.

    The place was fairly nice and close to some of the better restaurants in town. We are giving it a lower rating because the room was pet friendly (I'm allergic) and the noise from the highway was considerable (only if you're in that particular building).

  • Nov 05, 2013 by Stacey L.

    We got the 6 person suite, which came with 2 queen beds and 1 queen pull out, plus two full bathrooms, two TVs and an ocean view. It was spacious and clean, and your backyard is literally the entire PIsmo Beach. This is the side of the beach that is cliff-side so the sand is nicer and the view is absolutely gorgeous. There's also free continental breakfast, which comes with a make-your-own waffle station. In case your craving a work out, there's a small workout room, but I would just recommend opening the picket fence and just jogging alongside the beach. If you have kids, there's also a giant chess area, a mini mini golf course, and ping pong tables.

  • Oct 30, 2013 by Rachel E.

    +Will definitely stay here again!  Off-peak we spent $118 for a two room, two bath, spacious, clean suite with a balcony and an ocean view.  We stayed on the highway side but the room had double windows (not double-paned, but double windows with one window in front of another) so noise was barely audible. +Desk clerks were very welcoming. +Free breakfast had LOTS of choices and attentive attendants. +"Family play area" has yard chess/checker set with 2 foot high pieces, putting greens, badmitton, and ping pong tables. +FYI: Hotel doesn't have access from the beach because it sits on a cliff. -Minor notes: One of the tub/showers only had lukewarm water.  There was a high pitched whistling noise (I believe from the pipes next door) that was audible in one of the bedrooms but not in the other.  The Tub/shower that worked took awhile to have hot water in the late morning, and the controls to turn both tub/showers on are very confusing.  These were such minor issues and I was so happy with everything else that I didn't care.

  • Oct 24, 2013 by Lalo2123

    I want to just say that Grace the inn keeper is the best. She is very good at making you feel welcomed not only at her hotel but in Pismo Beach period. She told my wife and me what places to go around there and what to except. It was great!!! The hotel has everything ......and I mean everything you need......As you can see most reviews have a 5 Star with great reviews...From now on every time I go to Pismo.....I will definitely be staying there. Thank you Grace!!!! Lalo & Sandra

  • Oct 16, 2013 by Lizabeth V

    My husband and I made a weekend reservation for our wedding weekend, because we liked the interior of the room for a 2-night weekend stay at the Beach Comber Inn. This room was good-sized for a studio apt, a tub/shower, the shower and toilet area seemed a bit cramped with little room to move about or get in the shower... great water pressure and plenty of hot water, although the shower nob handle was cracked and fell off when I went to turn on the shower; ... free wi-fi, but was so slow and crappy I couldn't get a good enough connection to use it for my iphone and ended up using my cell network instead. When we purchase a room, we expect to experience something worth while an compensated for what we paid for. This was impossible during our stay. There are seven rooms all together, all up on a second level, a worn outside concrete walkway. The parking lot is so tiny and has poles that get in the way of pulling in, good luck trying to back up without hitting the concrete wall behind the lot, pulling forward might be easy if you happen to get there with all the other spaces empty being that theres maybe 7-8 parking spaces... its close to impossible to move your car in and out without a hassle. Our room above the office -- was by a busy street that featured motorcycle and vehicle noises that roared by all night into the earlier hours of the morning from 1-4am along with gas fumes. Music blared from an establishment across the street. Even the windows closed we could hear the conversations of people passing by. Both mornings a street-cleaning vehicle roared by at 6 a.m. the view was lousy..mainly vehicles parked in two large parking lots. Could smell fish and chips cooking in a nearby restaurant. The room's king-size mattress gave lousy support. Both nights we tossed and turned and woke with Our backs aching horribly every morning. No one cleaned the room during our stay. My first night I got into the shower to find someones old razor cartridge sitting on the edge of the back corner of the tub. The bottom of the tub looked a little dirt stained.I Made boutonnieres and my bouquet the night before our wedding so we had over flowing garbage, the next day no one came in to clean the room to clean or switch out trash bags. I was even kind enough to pick up all trash and put it in the trash containers throughout the room, cleared off all the counter tops of debris and picked up before checking out. We even straightened kitchen and bathroom counters, but woke kinda late out last morning and had 10 mins before checkout. Manager was extremely tactless and unprofessional, never have I ever experienced such horrible customer service. Upon leave the premises my husband received a snide text from the office clerk to not come back because we didn't clean the room for them. We Saw no written Information about policy and the owner said nothing about cleaning during our short check-in.I dont know if this is standard procedure for short-term customers or what but no one pays $189 a night to clean their own room part of paying for the luxury, especially on our wedding weekend. DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE HORRIBLE BUSINESS felt the room was not worth $189 (plus 11 percent tax) for each of our sleep-interrupted nights. Stayed Oct 2013, traveled as a couple

  • Oct 14, 2013 by Susan D

    What more can I say...all the reviews are perfect to point! Starting with Grace who is adorable and goes out of her way to make sure you have everything, anything you need for your stay. My sister and I were meeting friends in Morro Bay and needed an address...Grace got us the address and gave us great directions! The motel is exactly as described in other reviews...a bit weathered on the outside but the inside is upgraded with high-end appointments...granite counter tops, marble subway tile in the shower, plantation shutters, beautiful hardwood floors and carpets. You will have everything you need...it is very well stocked. Super location, you can walk to all the restaurants and shops and the pier. Easy drive to SLO vineyards and surrounding towns. One small con, the street sweeper is out working in the AM on the street so if you are a light sleeper ask for room # 5, it is in the back and very quiet.

  • Oct 07, 2013 by JCampise5150

    I have been staying her for the last 9 years, the rooms are always the best , Grace the inn keeper makes you feel as if you live here and it's her objective to make you feel at home. It's always clean, neat and well taking care of. Our vacation wouldnt be complete without the Beachcomber

  • Sep 30, 2013 by Michael G.

    Wow!  We did the 6 person family suite, partial view of the ocean, the slider door stayed open all night.  It was a FANTASTIC place to stay for a night on the road trip between the Bay Area and Ventura.  We had a lot of fun in the room, in the pool, walking on the beach, playing chess and table tennis.  There is a path you can take to the south along the ridge to gain access to the beach.  Excellent service, safe area, very walkable to downtown. There were a few minutes of panic when I heard a lot of rumblings from the suite on top of us while they moved in for the night.  But then the noise stopped and didn't have any issues with them again.  Top floor would eliminate that, which would be what I would request next time through. Booked directly thru their website for this nice stay.  Thanks for a great stay for me and my family unit!

  • Sep 29, 2013 by Travelers330

    At first, finding the place is confusing if you never been there. Our GPS couldn't pin point the exact address. Parking space is just handful and tight especially if other vehicles are parked. Room is clean and well decorated. It came with mini kitchenette. Grace is the inn keeper and very kind. Close to the beach, bike rental, various restaurants, shops and about less than 10 minutes to the Outlet.

    Very clean, very nice. Priced the same as competition. the gathering places, breakfast and activities area are away from the views. Covered parking is a plus. I would stay here again but as a 3rd or 4th choice.

    Sehr gepflegtes Motel mit persönlicher Atmosphäre. Im Zentrum von Pismo Beach gelegen, dennoch ruhig. Ca. 200 m zum schönen Strand, jede Menge Restaurants und Cafes in unmittelbarer Umgebung. Geschmackvoll eingerichtete, gemütliche Zimmer mit hervorragender Ausstattung - Geschirr, Gas-Kamin, Deckenventilatoren, Kaffeemaschine etc.. Die sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin steht stets mit Rat und Tat bereit, es gibt täglich Cookies und Muffins. Jederzeit weiter zu empfehlen !

    On the outside this little inn looks ordinary, but look inside! This was a darling room with nice wooden floors and decorative rugs. Everything was amazingly upscale. The huge bed was so comfortable. Location wonderful - walking distance to beach and the best fish and chips ever eaten next door. Give this a try! You will be glad! Also very nice friendly lady hostess! Thanks! Ron and Nancy Garberson

    My husband and I were so impressed with this Inn. We parked our car in our slot and didn't have to move it the whole 2 days we were there. Everything was in walking distance like 1 minute; beach, restaurants. Grace, the lady who runs it, was a delight! The room was immaculate, loved the Keurig coffee maker. I can't say enough about this place.

    Amazing, beautiful, great, the best of all, hotel in US. Great design in "lighthouse suites", comfortable bed, nice view. I totally recommend it!

  • Aug 04, 2013 by Nancy M.

    We enjoyed our stay. When we arrived the room we had reserved over two months before, and which I had verified the day before was not available, and the room they had for us was not ready and not what I requested. Argh. The next morning they said the room was now available so we packed everyone up again and moved. Much better! I requested top floor because the overhead noise is reduced. Breakfast is not that great, but kids enjoy it. Location is prefect, and there is a lot to do.

  • Jul 31, 2013 by Kristi R.

    I love staying here their family suites are very spacious. Great views from ocean suites and their breakfast is pretty good compared to other hotels on the same street.

  • Jul 29, 2013 by Carolyn B.

    Awesome hotel! The staff is super friendly and helpful. They are a dog friendly hotel, too. Excellent for a family vacation. Located right on the cliffs of Pismo Beach with beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean. Beach access. Lots to do in the area, too! You can literally fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean!

    We liked the interior of our room (#1) during a recent 2-night weekend stay at the BeachComber Inn. This room was good-sized, immaculate and appeared to be recently remodeled. Its many amenities included a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker; filtered drinking water; a small gas wall heater, billed as a fireplace; ample storage space; a safe; a 32" flat-screen HDTV; a tub/shower combo with great pressure and plenty of hot water; and free wi-fi. But when we book a room, we expect to be able to relax peacefully there whenever we want and to sleep well at night. This was impossible during our stay. The inn's seven rooms are on a second level, set up motel style with entry doors that open from a well-worn outside concrete walkway. Our room -- at the end of the walkway -- was by a busy street that featured vehicular noise with accompanying gas fumes. Music blared from an establishment across the street. Conversations of passersby could be clearly heard, even with the windows closed. The area became quiet, though, around 10 p.m. One night, however, we awakened to a man below repeatedly yelling obscenities. Another night found noisy guests in the room next to ours with one man screaming over and over at 2 a.m. We also heard slamming doors. A street-cleaning vehicle slowly rumbled by at 6 a.m. both mornings of our stay. After it passed, it added insult to injury by turning around and retracing its route on the opposite side of the street. It was even less relaxing to look at the view of the sea from our window -- a sea of vehicles filling two massive parking lots. The odor of fish and chips frying in a nearby eatery rode the breeze into the window on the other side of the room. The room's king-size mattress offered little support. Both nights we found ourselves repeatedly rolling into the center of the bed and awakening. Our backs ached badly each morning. No one cleaned the room during our stay. We do not know if this is standard procedure for short-term guests, because we saw no written information about policy and the owner said nothing about this during our brief check-in. The wi-fi proved to be extremely slow and we could not even log on our last morning. This was a drawback for us, because we needed to have access to the Internet for work-related activities. If you don't mind noise and like to be in the center of activities as well as just a block from the beach, then this lodging may work for you. And the atmosphere may be substantially different during the off-season. But we felt the room was not worth $189 (plus 11 percent tax) for each of our sleep-interrupted nights.

    My husband and I were taking a drive on PCH and stopped in Pismo for a night. All of the hotels directly on the beach were insanely expensive and crowded. We saw Beachcomber Inn and were immediately impressed by Grace(owner). She gave us a discount due to the fact that we arrived late(8ish) and gave us the most amazing room. It was impeccably clean(I have ocd) and the hotel had just been remodeled with great attention to detail(granite, limestone, magnifying makeup mirrors, copper sink, Keurig coffee machine, mini fire place...etc.). Fresh flowers and on the go breakfast goodies were available for guests as well. I cannot say enough about the amazing quality of this Inn!

  • Jul 24, 2013 by basho_razor

    6 of us including 2 kids stayed here last weekend. I had booked two rooms last month after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. I must say I was so happy I did so. The inn is awesome, fantastic spacious rooms, ever better was Grace the inn keeper. She was so welcoming and helpful,she made our check in FUN !! The property is in the heart of where the action is in Pismo Beach. 2 min away walking is the beach and all eateries etc are located within 1-2 min. This is a hidden gem and if you are heading out to Pismo try your luck one of the 7 rooms they have !!

  • Jul 17, 2013 by Tara P.

    This is a fabulous hotel! We have had a wonderful time here... Amazing views, friendly service, rooms that are big enough to accommodate our family, Walking distance to the beach, pier, and local boardwalk... Complementary breakfast!! What's not to love!

  • Jul 14, 2013 by Melanie C.

    We booked this room online as a quick getaway from the heat of Fresno! It was myself, my husband, and our two boys. I got, what I believe to be, a great deal online! We arrived in the evening and requested a late checkout - they said I'd have to call the next morning after 7am (Boo!). I did and was told we could stay until 1pm - but if I wanted to stay til 3pm, it would be a $50 charge. We chose the 1pm checkout. The room was great - really spacious and comfy. We had the 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite. The hotel is perfect for a family getaway - but don't know if I'd stay here without my kids, as it did get loud. The pool was warm and the games for the kids outside were perfect. We will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends and family! The reason for the -1 star is because on the day of checkout I had just stepped out of the shower and put a shirt on when our front door went flying open! A housekeeper (male) just stood there and said 'Are you leaving?' My husband jumped out of his chair to see who he was - and told him we had a late checkout. He said 'You do? Okay.' And left. Normally, housekeeping should knock before just entering a room - not to mention, he should have been notified that we were staying later. I mentioned it to the front desk clerk, who apologized and said they were aware of our late checkout and didn't understand why he did that.

  • Jul 07, 2013 by Karina H.

    Clean, quiet, serene. A wonderful view. A lot to offer on premises. Offers a continental breakfast. Had a room that overlooked the ocean. Getting down there is a small hike (lots of stairs), but the view is more than enough. Saw dolphins in the morning.

  • Jul 03, 2013 by Rick J.

    Lovely hotel. Rooms are very spacious, very clean, and in very good condition. The continental breakfast is very nice, and the pool area overlooks the ocean.The pool was perfect. The ocean view room is worth the extra money, we watched sunsets, and listened to the ocean all night long. We were so impressed with this hotel!

  • Jun 28, 2013 by Stephen S.

    We stayed in a ocean view suite at this hotel.  Great view, large, clean rooms.  Nice pool, hot spa and game area.  Breakfast OK. The bedroom had a loud pulsating motor noise.  So bad that I had to move to the living room.  Tried the sofa bed but the mattress was so thin you could feel the metal frame bars right through the thin mattress.  Ended up trying to sleep on the living room floor. Not a good night's sleep.   Additionally, the master bedroom tub/shower didn't drain.  Lucky that there was a second shower. Very disappointing for a $250. per night room.

  • Jun 10, 2013 by California O.

    Staff are great. I was able to check in early. Stayed on the top floor, ocean view. Amazing. Very clean I wish the bedroom was on the ocean side.... Great breakfast. Great value for a family trip.

  • Jun 03, 2013 by Andrew B

    We were really impressed by the BeachComber Inn. It's an unassuming building, but Room #1 was lovely and had everything we could have wanted. What really set the place apart, though, was the innkeeper. Grace was very personable and engaging, and made sure we had everything we needed. During my stay, one of us had a serious insect sting on the foot which looked like it might need professional medical attention. Grace couldn't have been more helpful with useful advice and very kind and helpful assistance. I'd strongly recommend it as a stopping point just before or after big sur, or if you just want to stay in a nice little seaside town.

  • Jun 02, 2013 by Melissa O.

    We stayed here in March for my birthday.  I was very happy with the room, location, and friendly staff.  This trip was for relaxing and sight-seeing and it turned out very nice.   The breakfast was tasty, the pool was refreshing, and clean.  The rooms are huge and they have comfortable beds.  I was really impressed. I would recommend this place for families.  I look forward to returning again soon.

  • May 30, 2013 by Pauly K.

    Stayed here this week on a midweek get away with the wife and baby.  It got good reviews here, the price was good and I liked the central location so I gave it a shot and scored.  Clean, very large suites, beautiful views, kid friendly, centrally located, beach access, over all excellent.   It is not a high end hotel but it is not a motel either.  Very good bang for the buck here.  You can hear highway 101 at night but that goes for about every hotel in Pismo.  I will stay here again for sure and I highly recommend it, especially for a family trip.  Great staff, well maintained grounds.

  • May 24, 2013 by S P.

    Stayed 3 nights at the Lighthouse Suites and had a great stay. Rooms were clean and very comfortable. With a 3 night stay we received a discount that made it very affordable. Conveniently located to downtown Pismo, easy freeway access both north and south, and as a bonus, minutes to some very fun surf. We will definitely stay here again.

  • Apr 28, 2013 by JCharles3

    We absolutely loved this hotel because the room was impeccable with all you could need. Beautiful high quality decor and fixtures with a little gas fireplace that serves as the heater! They even Have a keurig and a kitchen sink with filtered water to drink! The bed was super comfy with plenty of bedding. Grace the manager was so sweet and she even shared some of her pizza from a local place with us! The price we paid was off season which was an awesome deal and it was worth every penny. The only drawback (a small one) is that it is listed on trip advisor as a B and B, but the breakfast consisted of cookies and Danishes. At least they were from local bakeries, so that's a plus. We knew this ahead of time so we brought a few things to eat for breakfast. It is close to everything so you can walk to beach, shops and restaurants. So you know it overlooks one of the main streets so there is a bit of street noise from people, cars and music playing. Once we were ready to sleep we couldn't hear a thing. We will be back again because the stay couldn't have been any better!

  • Apr 25, 2013 by Rebecca A.

    Ah the Pismo Lighthouse Suites...does it get any better?! It really doesn't :). My first experience here started with a work trip with my siblings and our dog. We tried staying at the Edgewater because it was closer to the wharf but the electricity cut out, the door was falling off it's hinges and the room was way too cramped for our Anatolian Shepherd. Not quite the experience we were going for. I called the lighthouse suites and we moved over. We had so much more space, an amazing view and they even stocked our room with doggy treats! Our dog's tail was wagging vigourously and he had plenty of room to jump around happily. It was a safe and entertaining place to leave my siblings while I worked all day but I wish I could have been there enjoying it! The pool is heated like a warm bath which is amazing since it gets so cold on the coast! The view itself is enough. I've stayed here more than once and I'm going back again next week. The staff will help out with almost anything...wonderful people! Can't wait to be back!!!

  • Apr 11, 2013 by Jc C.

    It was a great hotel for a family of 4.  The 2 rooms suites, staff, views and breakfast were great as well.  The hotel had a gorgeous view and the beach was accessible via a short walk and very pretty walk.  The kids loved the kid-sized chess area as well as the putting area.  We would definitely stay there again.

  • Apr 08, 2013 by Jeff F

    The Inn keeper is just like you think, she was like staying with a your favorite aunt. The rooms are awesome, the beds are better than awesome. It would be your lose if you don't stay here. Thanks BeachComber hope to see ya soon. JF

  • Apr 07, 2013 by Sara D.

    Great hotel! The suit was spacious and comfortable. Friendly staff, great view, and tasty breakfast treats. I would defiantly stay here again!!

  • Apr 06, 2013 by Novy D.

    Over spring break, we decided to make the trek over to the central California coast. The area brings a lot of fuzzy, warm memories for me having grown up every weekend here. Imagine my excitement bringing along my own family to start, what I hope, would be a yearly tradition of summer vacays. A full circle moment right here. There were several criteria required when booking a hotel and they met all of our needs; family style suite, kitchenette, daily breakfast, free parking, beach access. These amenities made it that much easier to call Pismo Lighthouse Suites our home over the course of several days. They were kind enough to allow early check-in, a big positive after being on the road for hours. The hotel itself isn't too far from downtown if you don't mind being away from the busyness typical of a sunny weekend. A short 3 minute drive and you're there! It's also roughly 15 minutes from Paso Robles, 10-12 minutes from Avila Beach, 35 mins from Morro Bay and about 45 to a little over an hour to Cambria. Breakfast was satisfactory and did its job when fueling us for the day without the heaviness we tend to lean towards while on vacation. If you want a greasy spoon type of breakfast, there were plenty a short drive away. Their spread did just just fine and set us off on a good note for the day. Keep in mind continental breakfasts typically have cold items; no sausages, bacon or omelets here. The rooms were spacious for the three of us. We considered downsizing rooms since we now became a party of three but thankful we didn't. The room closest to the entrance, had bad circulation/venting. The window, which was along the main walkway, was locked. Completely understandable for security reasons, however being unable to crack them open made our room muggy and warm. The ceiling fan made it just bearable. Husband ended up sleeping in the beach side room leaving his sliding door open at all times allowing for cool beach winds to come through. Lucky duck. The only qualms I have about our room was the very loud knocking heard at night brought on by what I convinced myself to be old creaky drains between the walls. It woke me up several times throughout my stay. Secondly, house keeping did not show up until the very late afternoons, close to 4 pm, after we had already returned from a day out. We had hoped to come back to a clean and fresh room, take a nap and rest before heading back out for the evening  but that was not the case throughout our stay. Unfortunate. Beach access was very convenient. Yes, while you did have to walk past several other hotels to make your way down stairs to the beach itself, it sure beats not having to wrangle a parking spot at the main beach strip. No drones of people from this end, peaceful and quaint walks were highlights here! The hotel itself had nice outdoor activities to enjoy; put-put golf, ping pong tables, badminton, a heated outdoor pool, and lawn chess/checkers. Overall, we would highly consider coming back and staying at PLS. Just be sure to reserve ahead of time and get that good deal. We inquired what the stay would've cost that weekend, and let's just say its almost tripled. I do agree this hotel is ideal for families and large groups. The rooms were comfortable, the location was great and those amenities really sealed the deal for us.

  • Apr 04, 2013 by chlobebo

    I would definitely stay here again. Everything was just perfect! Stayed in room 1 but think next time I would choose 5,6 or 7. Street noise was not bad just the scare boarders at 2:30 were a little loud. Can't wait to come back.

  • Mar 27, 2013 by Sonja A.

    Very nice suite that was dog-friendly and kid-friendly!

  • Mar 23, 2013 by Rrhdesigns

    Very pleasant experience! The remodel is fabulous and the hostess is most friendly and fabulous. The room was equipped with everything a traveler may need and then some. I can't say enough about how perfect this room was for us. We were sad to say goodbye, but we will be back and have already started referring family and friends to the Beachcomber Inn. Thanks again! (My rating reflects swimming pool, but this does not exist at this location)

  • Mar 15, 2013 by Janicerahme

    My husband and I had a very comfortable stay at the Beachcomber. I agree with all the reviews. Likely the nicest motel room I have ever stayed in. I understand that the owner has recently redecorated the rooms... they are lovely. Every amenity was there for us to use. The location was good.

  • Mar 07, 2013 by Stewart F

    We were so lucky to have met the owner at a nearby restaurant when she overheard us asking the server for a recommendation on a place to stay. We did not know what to expect but were very pleasantly surprised. The room was a good size and well decorated and equipped with everything one could imagine to make a traveler feel comfortable and welcome. We plan to return for a much longer stay!

  • Feb 11, 2013 by April B.

    Would definately visit again! Stayed here for a quick getaway from the craziness of Los Angeles. We booked a oceanview suite, 1BM and 2Bath. Perfect for two people. The view was amazing. The room was clean and cozy. Love that it also included a microwave and minifridge. The continental breakfast was perfect for us. The hotel is located over a cliff but is in short walking distance to the beach and pier. Great value for the price. Especially during offseason ;) Reccomend to those looking for a relaxing getaway. Great for families or couples.

  • Jan 27, 2013 by Robert B.

    I've stayed at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites twice now and we absolutely love this place.   Our latest trek to Pismo we got a room with the Ocean view and the view is spectacular. The rooms are large, having two bathrooms is nice,and it's clean.  We'll definitely be back.

  • Jan 20, 2013 by Tim

    The best time too make you way to the galley is 9:30 to miss the crowd but get there befor 10:00

  • Jan 20, 2013 by Shannon

    The hotel is surprisingly cute and has great ocean views. Insider tip: if you ask for the "lighthouse special" and then wink you'll be automatically upgraded to a suite! Try it!!

  • Jan 19, 2013 by TeresaAnderson

    I can't say enough about how great this little place was. Our room was perfectly appointed from the fireplace to the kitchenette. Grace is terrific--gave us lots of good recommendations for everything from dinner to the butterflies. Literally moments from the beach/pier and minutes from lots of dining and shopping. I give it a 4 instead of a 5 because of traffic noise outside my window, but that's hardly the inn's fault. I only say it if you have trouble sleeping.

  • Jan 10, 2013 by Peter L.

    Been here twice: both time got a 2 BR, 2 BA suite. Friendly and accomadating staff. An easy walk from above to the beach. Very minor issues: fingerprints/scuff marks on walls, tub head was loosely attached, screen to balconly was broken. Other than that everything else was great!

  • Nov 27, 2012 by P S.

    We stayed in their premium oceanfront room during our last visit.  This is first time we were staying in oceanfront room so we were very excited about it. Room was nice but ocean view was from balcony thru living area not from bedroom.I was expecting to get a nice view and sound from bedroom. Even living area did not had much view as door to balcony was small. They could have put bigger door to enjoy view from sitting inside the comfort of room. We read reviews regarding pool noise so we asked for room which is away from room and got room close to elevator and ice machine. Ice machine was making noise every now and then so it we were getting disturbed during night. Except above two, our stay was very good.  Breakfast was good, room was clean. Hotel is close to downtown pismo beach and just off of freeway so it was very convenient.

  • Nov 24, 2012 by Con N.

    We stayed during the week of Thanksgiving and had such a great time again.  We had the family room with one king bed on one room and two queen beds in the other room.  Our first room had a view of the office.  When I asked to change rooms, they were so accommodating.  Our new room, on the other end of the building, had a wonderful view of the ocean!  It was just great.   They do such a nice job of cleaning the rooms, and the free breakfast is still such a value.  We enjoyed the beach, the heated pool, and the free cookies at the front office.  We love this place!

  • Nov 20, 2012 by Cindy D.

    We were here over the weekend visiting the parents and family.  We rented the King Ocean Suite and were not disappointed.  The suite was large, with two, count them, TWO bathrooms, a large bedroom and a large "living room" area that looks out onto the ocean, with your own private balcony.  Rooms were clean and stocked with the usual amenities.  We had a microwave and a refrigerator in our room - all the comforts of home!   The complimentary breakfast was the usual cold cereal, pastries, fruit, yogurt and the current popular choice for most places - make your own waffles.   The location is a bit away from everything so it's not real convenient for walking unless you like trekking a bit.  We'd come back here but request a top floor room next time- it sounded like we had a herd of elephants living above us for the two nights we were there- and the herd didn't go to bed till 2:00 a.m. or so.   Recommended.

  • Nov 18, 2012 by Shannon B.

    Very nice family hotel in Pismo just passing through.  They were willing to match any price I found on Internet. They have 2 rooms with an adjoining door.  So for parents and kids it was perfect "time out" time.   Rolling into town at dark there are dozens of choices so next time,drive in first and pic out the best price of one of the many.

  • Oct 30, 2012 by Sam T.

    My family of 4 (2 adults and 1 toddler and 1 infant) along with another family of 4 (2 adults, 1 toddler and 1 infant) stayed at 2 bedroom suite for 3 nights/4 days mini-vacation. The location was easily accessible and very convenient as it is right off the exit.  The room was a very good size, clean with very nice view.  Amenities included continental breakfast which was pretty good consisting of coffee, variety of juices, pastries, bagels, fruits, yogurts and even cook-your-own waffles.  Food was pretty good and served in a room with an ocean view with outdoor seatings.  The staffs were responsive and accomodating as we had a clogged sink and service tech came and fix it promptly. A couple of negatives ... The suites are NOT equipped with air conditioning which was the biggest drawback as it gets pretty hot and hard for the kids to sleep.  The other thing is even though the beach is accessible, it is quite a walk having to pass through a couple of other hotels before reaching the stairway down to the beach. Overall, it was a very enjoyable trip and an enjoyable stay at Pismo Lighthouse Suites.

  • Oct 11, 2012 by Joyce A.

    We chose the upgraded suite ($376 per night full up x 2 nights) for our weekend gettaway to relax and catch up on some sleep.  Well that was a joke, it was so noisy from all 4 sides, the noise from people walking on the 2nd floor, and the neighbors / cleaning staff slaming the door next to us, and you could hear the toilet flushed water coming down the wall.  If this is what your goal is when you visit these suites and want to pay extra to be right on the cliff, you may want to think twice.  We spent A LOT of $$$s at this property and were more tired when we left than when we arrived. Pros: - this property has million dollar views - wonderful staff - Adi at the front desk is very professional - our upgraded suite was very attractively "beachy" decorated and clean - outside grounds and buildings very attractive and kept manicured Cons: - our upgraded suite right at the cliff next to the pool was VERY NOISY on all sides - the hotel owners need to add insulation in the walls and between the floors - no AAA, government, AARP discounted rates on the weekends (Fri / Sat) - the complimentary breakfast was weak and crowded - they should advertise that lots of children stay there with kids yelling in the middle of the night - could not leave the windows open due to all of the outside noise - we were hoping to hear the ocean vs people - limited TV channels - toilet paper is "industrial strength" I read all of the positive reviews, which I respect, before selecting this property; however, I feel I need to share what we experienced.

  • Oct 09, 2012 by Rosie R

    This was our first stay at the Beachcomber Inn and we loved it! It's a great location...within walking distance to the pier & restaurants in Pismo. We stayed in room 1 at the suggestion of the inn keeper and it was perfect. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was super soft. The modern conveniences such as the ihome were a nice touch. We will definitely be returning!

  • Sep 15, 2012 by Chris H.

    After spending two nights at the Avila Lighthouse, my husband and I thought we'd try the Pismo Lighthouse.  We felt that the Avila one is alot nicer.  But the Pismo one has alot of good qualities too.  The view from our room was spectacular.  We enjoyed the walk to the beach.  The breakfast was the same as Avila's.  It's nice!  Didn't use the pool but it's not as nice as Avila's.  Very friendly staff and they made sure we were happy.  Can't wait for our next trip back here.

  • Sep 14, 2012 by Trysh F.

    We loved staying here. IT WAS VERY CLEAN. They also had great customer service, wi-fi very fast, lots of activities , right by the beach, the only reason Im giving them a four is because our room was hot and they had no A/C I understand it in a beach town but it was hot  in our room. Continental breakfast was good but I wish they had fresh scrambled eggs and sausage maybe the can buy a hot plate and a pan. But overall I would stay there again and recommend family and friends. Oh left my computer in the room for hours no theft problems.

  • Sep 11, 2012 by Jamie T.

    Beautiful hotel. It's an easy walk to the beach as well! I would stay here again any day!

  • Sep 05, 2012 by Eliza T

    My husband and I pulled in here for the night while driving highway 1 to LA. We were delighted! The rooms are gorgeous, clean and have everything you could want (including face wipes, kitchen supplies, bathroom supplies, even a little stool for kiddies to reach the sink!). We wish we were able to stay another night. The inn keeper,Grace, was so friendly and even had a basket of pastries out for us the next morning! The hotel is a very short walk (all less than 5-10min) to beer and wine surf bar, shops, little market, world famous clam chowder in bread bowl at The Spalsh Cafe (highly recommend having this!) and to the beach. We could even see the water from our room.

  • Aug 21, 2012 by Laurie E

    The Beachcomber Inn is perfectly located; close to the beach, promenade & busy part of town, without being right on top of all the bustle & noise. The room was beautifully appointed, sparkling clean & well thought out. While not large, it was so well laid out, it felt more spacious than many larger rooms we have stayed in. Our last minute reservation was handled perfectly, and we were greeted with a cheery "you made it!" when we arrived. A perfect gem of a place :) We absolutely plan to return often.

  • Aug 20, 2012 by Knoodle

    The redecorated rooms were really well done and the rooms had everything we could have thought of for our stay, including (and we didn't see this till we checked out) a step stool for kids for the sinks, dish soap and sponge, plates, utensils, microwave and even a laptop/writing desk. Grace is really lovely and the nicest thing was that after asking (upon booking) if they had sand toys to borrow and/or a place to put ours so that we wouldn't dirty up the room, we checked in to find that the owner (not Grace) supplied us with toys that my kids loved. It's very close to the beach and is in downtown Pismo so no need to go down and up a steep flight of stairs. The only things I would have liked to have were a) two queens instead of two doubles and b) real water glasses instead of the disposables but the lack didn't detract from the stay. Thanks for a great stay, Grace.

  • Aug 13, 2012 by Shannon D.

    What a great hotel, we will be back. The Family suite was perfect for my family of five.

    First time to Pismo for vacation and we really loved it!  We stayed in ocean view room on first floor with 2 queens and sleeper sofa in living room.  Best part was to see and hear ocean right outside back patio, though you'd have to sleep in living room pullout to fall asleep to it.  Nice having two bathrooms also.  Easy and quick walk to a nice, relatively uncrowded section of beach.  Nice and well maintained facilities and the staff was friendly and helpful.  I liked the covered parking with good sized spaces too.  Good and convenient breakfast, though a bit crowded. Negatives: Bedroom was located in front of suite with noisy ice machine right outside window and no view.  Other bad was we could hear every step of people above us, especially in the waking hours.  Do over would be to request top floor ocean view next time, and trade off the convenience of stepping right out back to beach trail.  This would also offer more security when having only screen door between you and ocean.

    I dig this place.  6 of us fit into the suite with 2 king beds and a pullout couch.  The room was tidy, spacious, and had a balcony that overlooked the ocean.  There are also pet friendly rooms available. The pool is tiny, but the beach is just steps away and down a flight of stairs.  The courtyard area provides fun activities - badminton court, 3 ping pong tables, and a life-size chess/checkers board.  There's complimentary Seattle's Best coffee by the front desk, and a daily breakfast that includes homemade waffles.   This is a wonderful, well-kept hotel in a prime location.  My only suggestion for the hotel is to upgrade the boxy television sets.  Those have got to go!

    I love this cozy little place! Its personaly owned so you really feel caterted to. She saw we had a baby so she even brought up extra towels! The rooms are very clean and cutely decorated these pictures are not up to date!!!! Plus the room has lots of extra things to make your stay easy, like plates, cups and utensils, qtips, blow dryer, microwave and tons more. They even have an extra TALL shower head which was nice for my husband. My favorite is the fire place which makes it so cozy and romantic at night. This is the place I will definately stay EVERYTIME I go to Pismo. Its close to everything but quiet enough for a good sleep!! Heres the web for updated pictures :) http://www.beachcomberinn.net/

    After a late shower, I had realized that I could not find the hair dryer and was not about to go to bed with a wet head of hair. I called the front desk and kindly asked the gentleman if he knew where the hair dryers were usually kept in the room because I could not find it. He simply said, "You probably got a room without one then." Silence...okay.... "Okay, can you please send someone up with a dryer?" His rude response, "No, we do not have maid service here and I do not have any spare hair dryers." Silence...okay... "Excuse me, but I have never been to a hotel where there are no hair dryers. Can you find someone to grab one from another room please? I just showered and my hair is soaking wet." His rude response, " Well you are at a hotel without one now." Silence...okay...by this point I am no longer shocked but irritated. "Did you really just speak to me that way?" "Yes." So then I go on to ask for the manager, which of course is not available. I will not be returning or recommending this place to anyone due to the sheer rudeness of this man. His name is Steve, by the way. If you are management reading this, I highly recommend a training course in customer service for this fellow. I gave two stars because I the room itself was alright. Looks just like the pictures, but with a kind of eerie feel. We had an ocean front suite, which was the only pleasantry about this place (and that's only due to mother nature). Continental breakfast was not worth the extra charge they tack on the room rate. And like everyone said, loud kids and loud birds around the clock.

    We had a great stay at the Beachcomber. The rooms are spotless, we had a very comfortable bed, loved the tile bathroom, and we were about a block from the beach. We had booked at motel in the area but from the look of the place, were afraid to enter their parking lot so we looked for a vacancy at the Beachcomber. Luckily, they had a room available. We want to thank Grace for helping to make our trip unforgettable.

    I was looking for a place to stay mid way on my trip from Southern California to San Jose; after much searching online I came across the BeachComber Inn --- and I am so glad that I did! I didn't realize that the Pismo Classic Car Show was in town that weekend until I pulled into town and saw all the activity; however, once we pulled into the covered parking area for the BeachComber I realized we were in the perfect place! Located just about a block from the beach, we found ourselves checked into the cutest hotel room ever!!! Elegantly remodeled, the owner has left nothing to chance - this room/inn provides better amenities that other large name hotels that charge double the price. So cutely furnished in true "beach" style, there is an armoire with a flat screen tv, free wi-fi, the most comfortable bed in the world, a cozy chair to read in, a small dinette table and a cute little kitchen area complete with a mini fridge, microwave, and a Keurig coffee maker. Grace (the owner) has thought of everything --- there's a corkscrew, some disposable cups so you can take your morning coffee down for a stroll on the beach, real coffee cups for the room, all the bath amenities you could think of --- even a notebook and pen in the nightstand drawer! The room we were assigned (#7, I believe) is on the very end (it might be larger than the others) and had two patio chairs and a small table on the deck outside. I cannot say enough about this cute, cozy, well-managed inn!! Kudos on a spectacular place to stay in one of California's last true beach towns. My only hope is that I am able to make another trip up the coast and stay here again!!

    Nice place, but the gym is horrible. It's way to small and has a total of four machines. The breakfast was so-so, nothing special. Rooms were clean though. Would also like to note that we were disturbed beginning at eight because our room was located near the breakfast room.

  • Jun 27, 2012 by Theresa K.

    Stayed 2 nights in a 2-room suite (1 king, 2 queen) in June 2012. Unfortunately, apparently the only rooms with a full view of the ocean are 1 room. There was a partial view from the King bed room (room with balcony), so it wasn't a total loss. The 2-queen room faced the shared terrace/rec area, so you could hear people walking by and playing games, but for the most part it was quiet. The guests seemed to be mainly families with kids. Lots of parking spaces available. Internet OK. Not the fanciest place, but the rooms were clean and spacious (they fold the toilet paper and tissues origami-style, so I guess that is sort of fancy). Cute maritime knick-knacks/decor. Complementary continental breakfast included. Coffee/tea/hot chocolate in the lobby all day. The staff was polite and helpful. The only main complaint was that our rooms were unbearably hot (granted, it was 50-60s outside, so warm rooms were welcomed, BUT there is a difference between warm and hot). We'd set the thermostat to 72, but it always read 80+ (!!), so we just kept the windows open to let a breeze in. I guess we could have asked the front desk about it, but since we were there only 2 nights, we figured we'd just let fresh air in. The shared terrace/rec area has: a mini (as in really small) golf course, some ping pong tables (balls are $0.25 from the vending machine), badminton court and a life-size chess/checkers board. We played some epic ping pong matches, so the rec area was pretty awesome to have. There is a small pool and whirlpool, but it was too cold for us to try it out. About 5 min walk to the steps that lead down to the beach (you have to cut through a few other hotels to get there)- DEFINITELY GO TO THE BEACH. It is gorgeous. It's not part of the "main" Pismo Beach, so it's not that crowded. About 5 min drive to "downtown" PB. Went there for dinner both nights. Not sure if it was the cold weather or just the timing, but it wasn't too crowded. Handful of decent restaurant options. SIDENOTE- if you want to do some activities like horseback riding or ATVs, make sure you call ahead to reserve....we didn't, and they were all booked up. Ah well, maybe next time. Can't really complain about "just walking" on the beach :) All in all, worth checking out if you just want to relax, do not mind being around vacationing families and are not looking for something super fancy.

    They upgraded us on our honeymoon! We got an executive suite!! What a deal!  Matt (i think that was his aname) was amazingly helpful in finding a nice place to eat at.  The suite itself was gorgeous.  A view of pismo beach right  off of our deck.  Wow. It had two rooms, a jacuzzi room and a shower wiht 2 shower heads.  Yes!  Perffect for newlyweds.   Thanks to the staff there!! Ill be bac k on my anniversaries!

  • Jun 09, 2012 by Joanna C.

    Lovely hotel, situated oceanfront.  We booked a 2-room suite, should have been a queen bed in each room, but got a King-size bed in each room which was great since my daughter slept with me and decided to sleep sideways.  Plenty of room for our kids to run around.  Partial ocean view from our balcony.  Had some nesting birds outside our window, but otherwise very quiet.  We were here during the week, so not many people around.  The walls are thin, though the windows are double paned, very nice windows.  I think the noise comes through the doors.  Didn't bother us though. Crown molding and baseboards, nicer than my home!  Clean.  Breakfast was your typical continental fare, but good variety.  Very yummy apples!  Free cookies in the evening, a big hit with my kids! Was a bit disappointed because I thought the hotel would have beach access, but really there is no good beach access from the hotel.  Also, there isn't a good place to look out over the ocean from the main parts of the hotel.  There is a walkway, but it's on a bluff and hard with little kids.  It is not on the main part of Pismo beach, which is nice, not too crowded.

    We are local here in Pismo and our home flooded. Our Insurance Company put us up in this beautiful hotel with our three kids (one of which is 8 months old) and dog for a month. After all we went through with our house, it was so nice to settle in our room with a port-a-crib, dog bowls and dog bed that they supplied. From then on the staff had been nothing but kind to us the whole stay. They kept the room very clean and we felt like we could trust them with all our Apple products, as we were pretty much moved in for a month. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee was great! The pool had a gorgeous ocean view! We enjoyed it very much. We highly recommend this Hotel!!

  • May 22, 2012 by Jeff

    Oceanside rooms have an amazing view, especially first thing in the morning.

  • May 13, 2012 by Ashley H.

    My family of four (typical white bread, still like each other enough to stay married, Mom, Dad, two bratty kids) came here on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day to avoid the Drama-Rama that comes with spending the holidays with the family. We got a good rate because a lot of people wish they could bail on their family at Christmas, but don't. I knew it said there were two rooms, but it was hard to tell how big the suite would be based solely on the pictures. When we got there and checked out the rooms, we were pleased. Let me say that I've lived in smaller places. The main room with the sink/mini fridge/microwave and sink weren't necessarily any bigger than a normal hotel room, but the separate room down the short (10', maybe?) hallway was HUGE for us. There is nothing that bums out two people who still have a sex life more than going on vacation with two kids sleeping in a bed two feet away. The place was clean, but some of the furniture was kind of banged up, which isn't a huge deal, but I would have been mad if I had paid full price. If I wanted to look at a scratched table, I'd just stay at home. (I'm not prissy - I just have OCD and my mind tends to get stuck on things..so I probably stared at that table 40% of the time we were in the room.) The balcony was really small and we couldn't see the ocean from our room, so we didn't really go out there much, but it was still quiet enough (even facing the parking lot) to leave the door open until it got too chilly. I was passing kidney stones while we were there (which sounds like, "Aw, bummer. Really, on Christmas?" but was really like, "HOLY MOTHER OF $&@!, PLEASE TAKE ME NOW!", and I couldn't find an open drug store on Christmas anywhere around. I was BEGGING my husband for pills/heating pad/whiskey/revolver, and when he went to ask in the lobby for help, they had no idea on where he might go. When I called the girl later in the lobby for directions to a convenience store that Google maps assured me was (maybekindadon'tknowexactly)close, she "wasn't really sure, but.." Uh-uh. That's part of your job, especially when people aren't from your town. Their bathrooms are nice and the tub off the Master bedroom has a ledge wide enough to comfortably sit on, which literally saved me from going insane and jumping off the balcony when my kidney stone was screaming through my body trying to get out. I sat there with the shower on for a good four hours and I LOVE that shower with my whole being. I will always remember how great that shower was to me. I'm pretty sure I could withstand a water birth (or maybe I did?) with that shower holding my hand. The one thing that I found ironic was that they offer luggage carts to take up to your room, but then depending on where your room is, you may not be able to roll it up to your door and into your room. We were on the third floor and there were two steps about forty feet away from our room that meant the luggage cart was useless after that point, because we couldn't get it down the steps without dumping everything off. The decor was relaxing and I'm basing my new remodel at home off of some of it, so that probably says something (like I want to live on the frakking beach). There is a Target about 15 minutes away, which is awesome if you want to buy supplies instead of packing them...or if you realize on Christmas Eve that you didn't get your 1 year old a present. :/ All in all, we will be back. This Christmas, we'll be trying out the Avila Suites to see how they measure up. While you're here, go to Splash Cafe. Seriously...but eat it there. It won't survive the trip back to your room.

  • May 05, 2012 by Miko C.

    WOW! I love this place!!!! Needing to get a little R&R in I decided to head up the coast to Pismo Beach. After reading some of the previous Yelp reviews (yeah, Yelpers rock), I decided to stay at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites. This place was absolutely AWESOME! The suite that I stayed in had a GORGEOUS oceanfront view. It was hard to stay away from the patio overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean. There was a back bedroom with it's own bathroom, and the living room had a couch that converted to a sofa bed. Did I mention that there was also a second bathroom, which made it super convenient. I was on the second floor and never heard anyone above or below me, which was great. I noticed that other people had mentioned that it had been a problem for them, but I didn't encounter that at all. Additionally, the room was absolutely immaculate, which I appreciated. I had a blast walking down to the beach (around a 5 minute walk) and splashing around in the freezing water...lol! They offered a free breakfast consisting of waffles, cereal, muffins, fruit, bagels, etc.. Warning - it gets a little crowded if you are waiting for the waffles since they take a while to cook. I just ran in and grabbed coffee, fruit, and yogurt so no waiting for me. They have around four holes of mini-golf, a life size chess set, and badminton too, if you are so inclined. Overall, this is a great place for hanging out with a great view and super friendly service. Definitely a place to look into if you are traveling with kids since they have the two separate sleeping areas that has a hallway door that can be locked between them...uh for a little privacy if you need it. However, if you are looking for a Hilton experience with spa massages in your room or a romantic B&B atmosphere, this is not the place for you. I would go back again in a second!!!! I love this place!

  • Apr 24, 2012 by DMT76

    We really enjoyed staying at the beachcomber. It's within walking distance of the beach & good restaurants. The rooms are cozy & very nicely decorated. Staff was very welcoming & helpful. Hope we have an opportunity to come back, would love to stay here again!

  • Apr 11, 2012 by Jeannine F

    This place is the best in Pismo. Perfect location next to restaurants and shops, but still secluded and cozy. The rooms are fantastic! Everything is brand new and updated, clean, and so comfortable. Rooms include so many little extras that other hotels do not have - even a Keurig coffee pot! I highly recommend this to anyone - family, couples, or even just for a solo get away. Absolutely lovely.

  • Apr 04, 2012 by Lydia S.

    My husband and I were looking for a good getaway for a few days with our two-year-old daughter, and tried here.  It was AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME.  What a beautiful view of the ocean from our room (we had a corner one which was great) and the rooms were huge, with a reasonable rate. Very comfy beds, the housekeeping was great -- everything was very clean.  Staff very friendly.  We loved all the options right on the property -- life-sized chess, ping pong, mini-golf, etc.  And a pool and jacuzzi.  And path along the bluff.  And walking distance to Ventana Grill (amazing view and food).  And breakfast in the mornings.  So easy especially with kids -- really an ideal set up.  We will be coming back.

  • Mar 26, 2012 by Natasha R.

    Okay, I will get straight to the points here. Positives: Beautiful ocean view, private access to the beach (very close), a lot of places to sit outside to enjoy the property and the ocean, very clean rooms, friendly staff, fast check in, comfortable bed and pillows, HBO, Bath and Body Works products, water heats up very quickly, quick access to the freeway, located close enough to everything but far away enough from the crowds, good for families and kids, and several local restaurants deliver to your hotel room. Negatives: NOT a good hotel if your looking to relax or have a romantic vacation. There are kids EVERYwhere and because the walls are so thin in the room, you can hear it ALL. My husband and I were here for our 1st year wedding anniversary and the only time we got peace and quiet was whenever we were away from the hotel. We could hear EVERYthing in our room and I often felt like the ceiling was going to collapse on us whenever the people upstairs were in their room. Our first night here the noise through the walls didn't stop until after midnight, every day after that (we stayed 5  nights) we were awaken around 5:30am from hearing people walking hard, closing drawers, dropping things, talking, and even yelling outside. The walls here need to be updated!! Although this was the only negative, it's a HUGE negative that was hard to ignore whenever we were in the room. I would never stay here again! Because of my lack of sleep everyday, I was exhausted the entire time we were here. If we hadn't prepaid we would've gone home early or changed hotels. Please take my advice...pay the extra money to stay at one of the neighboring hotels if your looking for a relaxing and/or romantic weekend. (There are people yelling and stuff outside as I'm writing this review in our room. We have the tv on and the windows closed and we can hear them loud and clear)

  • Feb 27, 2012 by tif f.

    My family and I stayed here one night last weekend.  We called in that morning on a whim and the rate was pretty decent and they had a room available.  We had the queen suite.  The hotel is off the freeway so it was easy to find but the freeway noise was pretty loud.  The rooms had double pane windows, I'm sure the noise would have been a lot louder if they weren't.  Front desk staff was very friendly when we checked in late.  The suite was very charming and cute; beachy nautical theme.  My child was pretty excited for his own room, bed, tv and bathroom!  It's a very family oriented hotel.  The beds were comfy.  Toiletries from Bath & Body Works!  Mini fridge, microwave and coffee machine in the suite.   Free breakfast was a nice perk.  Waffles, pastries, bagels, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, cereal and coffee.  The galley was quite small though and there were a ton of guests!   The people working at the galley were very diligent in cleaning up.  There's a pool on the property and a deck with mini putting area, ping pong tables, large chess set and badminton.  The property is very well maintained.  The parking area is a bit tight.  There was a huge tour bus trying to park when we were trying to leave.  There's also laundry on site, if you need it.  The view of Pismo Beach was beautiful!   My only negative was the cooling system/heater in our suite was really loud.  We had turned it off and every hour a large clanging sound would startle us.  My heart stopped at least three times that night.  We had called the front desk to ask if that was normal.  They were going to send someone to check it out but it was too late in the evening.  Also, the light on the hair dryer kept flickering.  Not a big deal but I'm a sensitive sleeper.  I just covered it up with a towel so I wouldn't see it.  Other than that, the suite was accommodating.  I would stay here again, but I would like the beach view suite.  We would rather hear the waves crash than the cars driving by.

  • Feb 21, 2012 by Sam K.

    I don't usually give a hotel 5-stars since you can always find something you don't like but Pismo Lighthouse Suites deserve a perfect score. The hotel is located right after you exit highway 101 which is easy to find. The hotel suites are clean, spacious and feel so brand new. We had the 20% discount for 2 nights stay promotion and save us some money since it was during the long President Day's Weekend holiday. Here are the great plus for this hotel - Check-in was fast and service is great. They serve coffee at the hotel lobby too - Plenty of parking space and very spacious so no ding to your car door - They have elevator if you are staying on the top floor - Suites are big and it can accommodate more than 4 peoples - The bed is some comfy and the towels is new and fresh (not the old and rough towels) - We love having 2 bathrooms and they have standing shower and bath tub options with Bed and Bath bodyworks toiletries - All rooms has microwave oven, coffee maker, LCD TVs, ceiling fan and heater. We were lucky to have the corner rooms and it was worth spending $100 (for both nights) more to get the ocean views. It was a great experience to relax in the room or at the patio watching the ocean and listening to waves. The pool and Jacuzzi is facing the ocean so I highly recommend to soak in the water and enjoy the sunset. We walked down to the beach twice during our stays and you have to past 2 other hotels to the stairs down to the beach. Thanks Cottage-Inn and SeaCrest for allowing other hotel residents to walk  pass your properties.

  • Feb 12, 2012 by Jamie L.

    Had a very nice weekend stay at this place. The rooms were very spacious as well as clean and comfy. The service was friendly. The amenities are great for friends and family of all ages. I would definitely return to this place the next time I visit Pismo Beach =)

  • Jan 03, 2012 by Naivette C.

    We only stayed one night but I was so impressed I'm already thinking of our next stay there.  We had a 2 bedroom suite.  One suite was near the front entrance, private with private bath.  The second suite is less private, but the view is gorgeous.  This also had a private bath.  There is a small eating area and a small kitchenette.  No stove, but refrigerator and convenient.   There are fun things for the family to do like a large chess set, mini golf and ping pong tables.  The beach is in walking distance, but if you do not want to go to the beach, there is a pool.  The beach is a bit of a scary walk down a very steep side of a hill and the steps are very narrow.  If you have young kids, please take precaution.  Mine made it, but we also went very slow.  Once at the beach, they had a blast. The breakfast was good.  Nothing really stands out, but it had enough of a variety for a whole family.  There was a combination of hot and cold foods and the setting was nice.   The best part of this hotel is the view.  It is amazing.  Hopefully you get a room with a view of the ocean.  The suites are very comfortable and spacious.  We loved them.  The staff service is amazing too.  Very nice and professional.  There was a mix up with my reservation and they were more than accomodating.   I look forward to staying here again.

  • Jan 03, 2012 by Kevin H.

    What a perfect place.. simply perfect. We had two rooms, one for my inlaws, and our 7 year old, and one for my wife and I, and our 2 year old.  The rooms were soooo spacious, clean and well appointed. The staff was great, the "family deck" was perfect. And well of course the view. We had the ocean front premium room, and was definitely worth it.. a cute little porch (actually that would be my one complaint, the porch was very narrow, couldn't sit in the chair without having my knees hit the railing).. As a side note, this place also had the best/fastest hotel wifi that I have ever experienced.. what a side blessing, when I had to get some work done, after the boy went to sleep.

  • Jan 02, 2012 by Michael J.

    I stayed here for two nights in the King Ocean View suite.  Nice place overall, with charmingly decorated master bedroom.  The living room with sofa sleeper overlooks the cliff and ocean.  We had four adults and two small children there, with no problem fitting everyone.  They even loaned us a pack n' play.  The room was clean, modern, and had a small refrigerator and microwave.  The continental breakfast was good, and there was free coffee in the lobby all day long.  The front desk personnel was really nice, and even let us move from the third floor to the first floor.   The view was beautiful. Now, the downsides...the hotel is somewhat north of the main Pismo Beach area, so it is somewhat of a walk to get to the pier and town.  Also, the stairway access to the beach is a few properties over, so it is a little bit more work to go to the beach.   The clientele there were not very classy, at least when we were there.  Some partyers next door to us "borrowed" one of our deck chairs and didn't bring it back, until I confronted them.  (Sitting alone on a single deck chair and watching the ocean isn't very romantic)  Also, the people above us were loud and obnoxious.  Someone right above us kept running back and forth and slamming the deck door, and we could hear everything.  They were probably kids, so I'll forgive them.  The floors/ceilings, therefore, seem somewhat thin and noisy.   So in summary, this is definitely a good place to stay, especially if you have a big family, and need the space.  However, be prepared to have a somewhat disturbed sleep from the neighbors above you, and be prepared to get your exercise when going to and from the beach.

  • Dec 19, 2011 by Kelly g.

    Seriously one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in. We stayed in the King ocean front suite and it was absolutely amazing and spacious. The breakfast included had everything you could possibly think of including do it yourself waffle maker. When coming to Pismo I will only stay here.

  • Nov 20, 2011 by Kelly C.

    A turn of events led us to Pismo Beach where we discovered Pismo Lighthouse Suites. It was utterly spellbinding!  So last minute, my hubby  and I literally booked the place right then and there without reservations. We were shocked to discovered that we got a suite with two bathrooms and two bedrooms with a balcony view for such a great deal. I don't say this often but I would have paid TWICE as much for this suite. It's so darn cute with all its nautical decor. I absolutely adore this place! The best part was not the jacuzzi, pool, or fitness center to use to your heart's content. The best part was how it brought out my short stint as a chess teacher in my past life when I saw the human size chess set set up on the deck.  Yes, there was a line for it and it took us about 9pm to finally get to use it. I loved the complimentary delicious homemade cookies and coffee in the lobby and the warm friendly staff made me feel like this could possibly be a B&B hotel. The continental breakfast was mediocre so don't come here for just the breakfast but the clean rooms, HBO,  and hospitality makes this place magical. I would definitely come back with another couple for a night's stay for some peace and relaxation. Oh, and points for being so close to the pier and heart of Pismo Beach.

  • Oct 14, 2011 by Anthony B.

    This is a perfect place to stay with the family. Pool, large checker/chess board, big rooms which the kids lived having 2 rooms, 2 tvs, and 2 bath rooms. The only downfall is that there is not A/C, which is common for the central coast. But when we stayed here, it was a very hot day and the rooms could only cool down so much with the windows open and the ceiling fans running.

  • Oct 13, 2011 by Sandra L.

    What a great find!!!! and we found this place by accident and boy am I glad we did.  We were just driving through when we stayed here and now we are talking about planning a trip down to Pismo just so we can stay at this hotel again it was so comfy and nice! My wife and I had been on our honeymoon coming home from a road trip along route 66, instead of driving the rest of the way home we decided to stop one more night in Pismo Beach.  My wife got on her smartphone while I drove and found that this Pismo Lighthouse Suites came highly recommended through TravelAdvisor.com so we gave them a call to see if they had a room.  Not only did they have a room they had what seemed to be a large luxury suite available, for a very minimal price. My eyes about popped out of my head when he told me how little it was and that it had a full ocean front view as well, I told him we would take it and would be there in 5 minutes to check in! We pulled up to the hotel and checked in at the front desk. The guy was very nice and pleasant, told us about all the amenities and we asked about dining recommendations in the area, which he gave us quite few along with even delivery options.  We drove over to the where our suite was, took the elevator up, and walked in, let me tell you, both my wife and I, our bags dropped and our jaws about hit the floor. This suite was HUGE! it was bigger than my condo, clean and well kept.   Bedroom: beautifully decorated with beach/sailor themed items, even having paddles over the bed. Big King Size bed with soft clean bedding and linen's with a large master bath including a big jet soaking jacuzzi tub and shower. (FYI, do not use bubble bath in a jacuzzi tub, lesson learned, LMAO) Oh, and they give you Bed Bath & Beyond bath products, Hello, how awesome is that!  They also provide you with a robe to wear, which where nice, my wife wanted one for home, so we actually bought one in the gift shop. Bathroom: there was a whole other bathroom in this suite, with a full double-headed walk-in shower, so two people can shower at the same time. NICE!   Living Room: it was very spacey with 2 full size couches and  numerous windows that opened up to your full ocean view! Walk out of the sliding glass door onto the balcony and you have a complete unobstructed 180 view of the Pacific Ocean, beautiful. There is a entertainment center that is closed but does hide a TV with cable if you choose to turn it on. There have a small kitchenette area, that has a mini fridge, coffee pot, mini sink and microwave. This suite was beautiful, we didn't want to leave it really, we just wanted to relax in it and pretend it was our home, staring out at the ocean view, listening to the sounds of the sea crashing up against the coast. On a side note: the hotel grounds are nice and well kept, they have a pool/jacuzzi, looked like miniature golf or maybe putting greens, along with badminton, ping-pong, and also I thought I saw a life size chess board as well in that area.  It seemed like a good place for a family to visit with kids. To sum things up, we obviously loved this hotel and would recommend it to anyone going to be staying in Pismo Beach. We can't wait to stay here again!

    First time staying here. Friends go each year and have been trying to get us to go, so we got away for a few days. The Good: Lovely grounds, clean, spacious rooms, reasonably priced 0ff- Season; swimming pool/jacuzzi overlooking the ocean. Large 'play' area/deck with putting green, badminton, ping-pong and chess, with large moveable pieces. Friendly check in staff. Fresh baked cookies upon check in. Nice gift/souvenir shop on site. Amazing ocean views! The Bad: Seagulls on our veranda begging for food (thanks to all you ppl who think it's 'cute' to feed these scavengers - it brings more and then there is bird poop everywhere! Please stop!). Continental breakfast was just 'okay' (everything very high carb, pre-sweetened cereals, canned fruit, no toast or meat of any kind). Should offer a selection of sugar-free condiments but did not. (Staff unhelpful due to communication problems*.) Very small eating area, crowded and hard to move around in, both days we were there. 100 steep stairs down to the beach...and 100 back up! (Pack light). Only 1 restaurant within walking distance (Marie Callendars) Only 1 set of towels, per person, per day. The Ugly: Had to have room key re-keyed. Hotel staff does not understand English* (or said they don't) and it was very hard to communicate. Jacuzzi opens at 8:00 am but key would not work at 8:30am - had to take 3 flights of stairs up to the office to ask them to open it. Back down to the pool gate. Waited 10 min. before I saw someone who saw me and kept walking then realized we made eye contact and went "Oh" and then came and unlocked the gate. :( Elevator is located near Price street so if your room is located near the ocean side you will have alot of walking to do, hauling your luggage or climbing the stairs. We did alot of stair climbing our 2 days there!

    A bit outdated (big old tvs, cheesy lamps)  but that is reflected in the price. super friendly staff, free wifi and continental breakfast. Right on the ocean, 100 steps down and you can walk on it for miles. great location right off the 101, walking distance to downtown and nearby restaurants. Would totally return.

    Third time staying at Pismo, my family decided to stay at Pismo Lighthouse Suites due to the pictures we saw on Expedia. At the hotel the rooms were very nice, it was perfect for a family of four as it had two seperate bedrooms, two bathrooms and a kitchen area. It allowed everyone to be accomodated and it was very spacious. The amenities were nice, they have a miniture golf course, ping pong tables, a giant sized chessboard, pool/jacuzzi and a badmington court, fun for the whole family. Also the complimentary breakfast have make your own pancakes and other bread items. I do have one complaint though which is why I gave it 4/5. The noise level is pretty annoying. Though I understand it is a busy hotel, there was constant noise around 11-12 at night, and due to its proximity to the highway it gave some noise as well. This is not the hotel's fault and the friendly staff relocated us to another room to help dull the noise for no charge as well. *Side Note: The staff is very friendly, upon our departure from the hotel, the battery of our car died, and a staff member quickly came to jump start our car. Overall it is a very nice place to stay, 4/5!

    This was my first time staying in the Pismo Beach area.  We decided to stay at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites - it was my son and I so I decided to get the Large Family Suite (2 rooms; one with a King bed & the other with Two Queen beds and 2 bathrooms - a MUST when you have a son). I was impressed with the size of the room for the price we paid, a very good value!  The property is nicely laid out and the grounds are kept up beautifully.  They have ping-pong tables, huge chess board, badminton and a putting green (and of course a pool and hot tub).  We stayed in the building facing Price Street (bldg 1).  The beach is just a small walk away. The room was spotless and very comfortable.  The suite came with a mini fridge, microwave and free wi-fi   Great place for couples and families.  One of my new favorites. When I'm back in the Pismo Beach area I will be staying here!

  • Sep 14, 2011 by Janet J.

    We stayed here two nights and hated to leave.  Our ocean view suite was spotless and beautiful, with comfortable furnishings.  Lots of seating, kitchen space, and privacy in and out and a fenced in patio with nice chairs in the lawn between our room and the ocean. The continental breakfast was more than adequate with indoor and outdoor seating, make them yourself mini-waffles, hard-boiled eggs and other favorites.  We will absolutely come back next summer.   Just one warning, if you want to run out onto the beach this property is on a bluff overlooking the water, but to get down onto the sand there are 100+ rickety steps to climb down and up again.  Not a problem for me, but maybe for some others.

  • Sep 01, 2011 by Ben A.

    First, we love the place. The location and the amenities with its price are exceptional. The pool is not that warm enough but is kept clean routinely. Continental breakfast is good, same kind everyday, would better if they have bacon and egg :) The staff are professionals except for the security guard, the way he handled the complaints he received. He warned us about the noise we are making, complain from the one below us. He said that he will kick us out if hear us again. I don't know how the security will have that kind of power to intimidate the customers. We apologized but we were ignored, he is not polite. We had family gathering, with kids, lots of kids. How can we control the kids if they are having fun, and they only see each every now and then. They said that this place is family oriented, hmmm... The truth is, we checked if the noise we are making is loud enough to bother anyone. On our second day, we asked to be moved to the lower level. We made so much noise than our first night. We did not hear any noise we are making from the other room except from the floor above us. The floor was not insulated properly, you can hear every step anyone make(which is not our fault, I think!), the front door is loud each time you open or close it. The exhaust fan from every bathroom are loud each time you use it. Those are the things I think that bother us, noise wise. Overall,  we are willing to go back, maybe next year! We saw the other hotels around the area, maybe we should try them first if they have better deals. P.S. I love their coffee! One of the best, and it is fresh every time. We rented 5 rooms for 2 nights. They deserve 4 1/2 stars. Don't mind going back their again! :) WiFi is slow! I am glad I have 3G! Thank you, PLS staff!

  • Aug 30, 2011 by Brenna R.

    I just stayed here over the weekend and it was really great. They have nice rooms, I only have a couple complaints... the bedroom was at the front of the suite so the beach side balcony was not near the bed... I wanted to sleep next to the sounds of the ocean, so we slept on the pull out couch bed, which was uncomfortable, but it was so dreamy to have the ocean right out the window when you wake up in the morning! The other complaint I have is about the showers...we are both average tall, 5'10" and 5'8" and skinny... the one shower was so small my bf barely fit in it, and the other was short so that I felt like I was doing the limbo to wash my hair... but the plus side was there were two bathrooms.... It was set at a beautiful location, right on the beach, 4 min walk down to the water! It was foggy in the morning and evening but it got sunny by lunch time.

  • Aug 21, 2011 by Elizabeth B.

    Me and my boyfriend stayed here the other day and totally splurged on the Oceanfront King Suite. Upon arriving, we were stoked to know we where on the third floor which was totally amazing and had the best view ever!! Room was pretty good size. Two bathrooms, living area with pull out bed/couch, bedroom and balcony. We were very happy and had a wonderful time. Unfortunately what makes them lose a couple stars in my book was their customer service. When my boyfriend and I were loading our luggage into my car, we noticed my hood, windshield, side windows and top of my car were absolutely COVERED in seagull poop! When we went to the lobby to check out, we told them the situation and asked if maybe they'd be willing to give us a car wash or some sort of help with cleaning my car. The general manager and another woman said there is nothing they can do because that's mother nature and they have no control over where the birds poop. Which I understand, however I'm sure this parking spot is well known for this happening. They need to have a tarp or something under the trees, protecting their customer's cars. Anyways, they try to hand us a towel so we can wipe up the poop.. and offered a bucket of soap and water if we need it. This was just rude to me, after spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars to stay the night, the least you could do is show some empathy and be willing to pay for my car to have a wash. They kept saying "What if we gave everyone a car wash who had bird poop on it, we couldn't do that". A BIRD POOP? NO! I'm not complaining about a bird poop, this was a freaking flock of seagull shit that devoured my car. This spot has to be a known flock hang out and I'm sure they've had complaints before, therefore they are responsible for doing something about this. After hounding the general manager, he offered us $10 refund from our room. Thanks, took ya long enough to come around. Went to the hand car wash and they couldn't even take off all the poop and there are STILL outlines of the poop all over my car... Not pleased at all.

    I was shaking my head coming to terms with how wonderful this little Inn was after having searched early evening for numerous places and outrageous prices for dumps. This is a 4 star address...like a needle in a haystack. Guaranteed to go back. Newly and elegantly furnished with better amenities than most big name hotels. WELL DONE!!!

  • Aug 01, 2011 by Jason S.

    This place is quite large. They have lots of rooms and they are right on the beach. We had two rooms inside our room and I only payed for the one room. It was really nice but the rooms were too big for just the two of us. This place would be great for a family or a larger group of people. Our rooms was nice and clean.

  • Jul 22, 2011 by Israel

    Play ping pong or oversized chess!! You can also play badminton or golf, swim in their pool or relax in the jacuzzi. Remember to bring some quarters, each ping pong ball is 25c

  • Jul 21, 2011 by sharlebear

    I have been staying in Pismo for many years and have no idea why we haven't stayed here before. The rooms are beautiful with many nice little extras that none of the other places we have stayed had. The person who checked us in and took care of us all weekend was wonderful very friendly making sure we had everything we needed. She even told us about things going on while we were in town. This is now my favorite place to stay and I'm sure we will be going again soon, Thank you BeachComber for a wonderful weekend getaway. Sincerely The Bulls

  • Jul 11, 2011 by Nancy L.

    Lighhtouse Suites exceeded our expectations!  The rooms were large, clean and well-appointed.  Our granddaughter and her friend thought they were in heaven having their own room with two queen sized beds and a private bathroom.  We wound up spending more time at the motel than anticipated because the girls loved the pool and the sports area.

  • Jul 06, 2011 by Kris K.

    When i find a place to stay for the family, i will research and research to make sure that i find the perfect place for us. I found this place based on both Yelp and TripAdvisor reviews. The place had pretty good reviews for being family friendly and clean. Spot on for both! The hotel room was pretty big. we had the 2 room combo: 1 Queen in each room. The place was very very clean. I was actually surprised. (I'm pretty much a clean freak when it comes to hotels, homes, and bathrooms...this place was great) the layout of the rooms were divided by a small entry way where the rooms were split off. One room in the front, one in the back. This is definitely a great hotel when you're traveling with more than 3 people. The beds were pretty comfy and the amenities were good. Small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker with Seattle's best coffee. nice. The soaps and lotions were all from bath and body works. also nice. The bathrooms were very simple and CLEAN. Nice low kid friendly bath tub. not to mention super super clean. The shower heads were clean as well. no mildew or limestone which showed me that the hotel really keeps their place clean!!! The shower heads were also nice = Speakerman! the breakfast was very good. the full range of fruits, muffins, danishes, juice, coffee (Seattle's best), yogurt, and not to mention fresh make it yourself waffles! yum!!! The only negative of our stay was the location of our room. I know it was over 4th of July weekend (Friday July 1, 2011), and it was probably oversold... but we got a pretty crappy location. Since the property does not have air conditioning, our room was very very stuffy when we arrived. When i wanted to open the windows, bedroom 1 faced the walkway and the freeway. It was very loud and I couldn't leave the window open since anyone walking by can easily stand at the window and order take out. The other bedroom faced the main check in office. Not bad, but when i opened the balcony door, the breeze was nice. But there was someone downstairs smoking a joint or something. the smell was too bad to keep open. So we were pretty much hot the entire night. there were ceiling fans and a heater which made a buzzing/humming sound the entire time. but we survived. Tips when traveling with Toddlers: Great place for the family. Very close to everything (Main street at Pismo beach). We especially enjoyed the enclosed play area by the main office. You have table tennis, chess, Badminton, very safe and nice! The hotel rooms are very kid friendly. a lot of wood furniture and safe around the room. I didn't have to move anything except the phones. very comfortable for kids. Overall, since we stayed for only 1 night, it was worth it. If i were stay again in Pismo beach for more than 1 night...i would probably try a different hotel.

  • Jul 04, 2011 by Dee B.

    This place was surely a splurg for us!  Got a ocean front view suite.  It was very relaxing and it was nice to hear the waves crashing the shoreline.   Super duper clean and modern nautical themed room.  Really all the rave and no complaints.  Just check it out for yourself.  Kids loved the amenities.

  • Jun 29, 2011 by Sidney S.

    My rating is for summer months in an oceanview suite Room was nice and clean...huge one bedroom two bath suite with living room.  Awesome view of both Pismo and Shell Beach. My Son loved the game court with oversized chess/checkers, badminton, ping pong, mini-golf (which we did not play).  We also spent a couple of days in the pool...nice size too with jacuzzi that was set way too hot. BTW, I discovered I'm the world's worst badminton player.  Who knew it was so difficult to hit a birdie?  I mean, absolutely pathetic how many times I whiffed and hit air. Breakfast was a disappointment...for the fare we paid ($300 a night), it was totally weak and two breakfasts we ate elsewhere.  Just standard continental with a DIY waffle area...pastries were Costco/Smart & Final boxed, fruit not fresh. Service was inconsistent...three times needed keys rekeyed and twice wrong room number punched in which meant a drudge up and down the stairs again.     So, I understand all the fab reviews...and paying weeknight/off season rates it is a 4 to 5 star hotel.  For summer/weekend rates?  Not even close...and I'm not sure worth the money...

    My husband and I have been to the Pismo Beach/San Luis Obispo area numerous times, but it was our first time staying at Pismo Lighthouse Suites. We stayed here earlier this month, for 2 nights. We were pleased with the experience and would likely return for a group or family getaway due to the reasonable rates (the two-room suites cost even less than a single room at some neighboring hotels) and overall cleanliness and good condition of the rooms. However, for a quiet vacation, we would probably try elsewhere. The place isn't perfect but it's a solid 4 stars. Since it was still off-season, we were able to find parking easily in downtown Pismo, so we didn't mind that the hotel isn't right on the beach. However, if visiting in the summer, one may want to consider a more beach-accessible location if that's where the majority of time will be spent. The highlights: * Really great midweek rate (about $140) for a 2-bedroom family suite that included a king bed in one room and 2 queen beds in the other. Each room had its own shower/tub, toilet and sink area. A microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker, and hair dryer were located in the room with the king bed. * Our suite looked just like the photographs on the hotel website. It was very clean, and the linens crisp and white. * Extremely accommodating and flexible staff. When we had issues with the occupants in the room above ours making excessive noise (see below), the front desk staff promptly looked on the computer to see if there were any other rooms in our category on an upper floor. Unfortunately, these were all located on the first floor, but he moved us to another location where the room above was not yet occupied. While the staff person could not promise that nobody would be using the room above ours, we still greatly appreciated his efforts. He accommodated our request with friendliness and empathy, which can be rare these days. * When someone in our party accidentally clicked into not one, but three, pay per view movies (but didn't watch), the front desk staff removed the charges when we explained that it was an accident. The staff person said he could see that the movies were purchased but not watched. He was totally easy going about it and didn't make us feel like fools (although we already did). * Great coffee! Our group included coffee lovers, and everyone agreed that the coffee was particularly tasty. The breakfast buffet (included in the room price) had a good selection. We particularly liked making our own waffles. We could see the workers taking great care to clean tables and keep the buffet area tidy as quickly as possible. It was quite a zoo on our first morning because we came late (around 9:30). On the second morning, we took our breakfast back to our room (just grabbed some coffee in the disposable cups and lids). The downsides: * No air conditioning in the rooms - only heating. It wasn't a problem for us due to the cool weather, but it could be an issue in the summertime. * Thin walls and floors - we could hear some noise from next door as well as the footsteps from the people above. In our first room (before we asked to be moved), the people above (probably children) were obviously running around and the noise was excessive. In the second room, we could still hear footsteps, even though the occupants above appeared to bee taking normal steps. We were only able to tolerate it because our baby kept us up late and woke us early, and we were awake anyway. And if there was noise in the night, we were just too exhausted to hear it. * We could hear water running through pipes (from a washing machine elsewhere?) even when none of us were using the bathrooms. * We were in the building closest to the freeway, and while some reviewers that have commented on hearing noise, we did not. However, the weather was cool and we didn't need to open any windows.

    This is a very neat and clean property. My husband and I booked the ocean-front king suite. The suite had a bedroom, living room, 2 full baths (one with a tub and one with a shower) and nice ocean views. The living room is ocean facing, so you won't get any view from the bedroom. It is not a luxury hotel so don't expect a resort experience. It seems to be an older construction and rooms have basic amenities.   For the price we paid I was hoping for something more modern with better add ons. Pismo Beach in itself is a small town, we did not find many dining/entertainment options in the march weekend we were there.

  • Feb 28, 2011 by Lish H.

    Stayed here for weekend getaway and love it! Such a clean and neat property overlooking the ocean. Our room was facing the beach and we caught beautiful sunset on our patio. As some of the guests said that it can be a bit too crowded with kids,  we found it was very peaceful. Our suites has 2 bathrooms, one shower and other is bathtub with Bed & Body Works toiletries, love it!

  • Jan 28, 2011 by starmaker87

    I got stranded overnight in Pismo.I was really looking forward to coming home and the comforts that go with it.Luckily for me someone told me about this place so I tried it.Thank goodness I did.It Had all the comforts of ome that I'd expectfrom a low-cost place and then some.The staff was eager to help with any questions and they were very friendly.The rooms were a tad small,but that didn't bother me.It's location was ideal for me because I like to go to the bars and have a couple drinks.I didn't need to find a cab,I was 2 blocks from the Pier and all the fun stuff.It had tempurpedic matresses and plenty of literature for me to entertain myself with the going ons and maps and phone #'s for all the activities anyone would need.Too cold for the pool,but it was sparkling clean.I'd recommend to everyone.Thanks,beachcomber.

  • Jan 19, 2011 by Laura B.

    My family loves this hotel.  We signed up to be on their email list and we always take advantage of the specials for the oceanfront king suite.  Our two young boys love the space of the room and stepping right outside the patio to look at the ocean.  My husband and I love to sit on the patio after the kids go down (in the separate bedroom) and enjoy a bottle of wine.  The staff is always so helpful and friendly, the rooms are always clean and the complimentary breakfast is yummy with lots of selection.  On holiday weekends the hotel can get busy so it's best to go mid-week or off season.

  • Jan 11, 2011 by Bri A.

    My fiance, and another couple booked a two-room queen suite with a courtyard view for New years and the day after.  We arrived and were pleasantly surprised with fresh cookies and a painless check in.  There was plenty of parking, even covered parking with an elevator right up to our room.   Our room was a very good size, with two separate bedrooms and bathrooms.  The decor was great, with a frame of various knots used on boats, and an actual window piece from a boat.  They definitely captured the feel without overkill.  We were also pleasantly surprised from the balcony we had almost a full view of the ocean, even with the advertised 'courtyard view'.  We enjoyed fireworks from there at the new year and got some great, fresh sea air.  The beds were also very comfortable, with plenty of pillows and extra blankets. We really had a great time here, and will definitely stay here when we visit again.

  • Nov 30, 2010 by Jamie P.

    Great value for the cost! About 40 people from my family stayed here for my wedding weekend. Based on an informal survey I took before the weekend was over, the general consensus was that: the rooms were comfortable, large enough for one medium or two small families to coexist peacefully (at least for a couple of days), the continental breakfast options were really good (for being a continental breakfast), and the view/proximity of the beach was a major plus. And I thought it was great to have all my family members close by in a less austere setting than other affordable motels/hotels. For people looking for a romantic getaway, the number of families may detract from cozy moments, but there are rooms with a full ocean view and king-sized beds that could be nice for a duo.

  • Sep 22, 2010 by Matthew T.

    This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. Both times we have come mid week and got a great rate king ocean view. We love this place. We have seen the reviews about noise and families but have not expierienced ourselves, maybe because we come during a quiet time. Anyways, big room, 2 bathrooms, very clean. Only thing is I wish the bedroom was towards the balcony so you could hear the waves all night. My wife had to do some work and yes we expierienced the same slow Internet....who cares! It's free!   Anyways we will definetly be back.

  • Aug 23, 2010 by Alicia C.

    We used to stay at the Cottage Inn next door. We decided to try this one out. It is now our favorite spot in Pismo. We got upgraded to the Master suite - awesome, awesome, awesome!!! With a jacuzzi tub, fireplace and FANTASTIC view - can't ask for better! They also have a really cute lawn where you can play badminton, table tennis, chess, checkers and mini golf. The property is clean, the room we were in was immaculate. The pictures on their website - what you see IS what you get. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place. Oh - and the free breakfast is a PLUS.

  • Jul 22, 2010 by N R.

    Perfect Beachfront Hotel!  The suites are more like little apartments.  They are very clean and have two bathrooms.  (We stayed in the beachfront king suite)  Located on a cliff, there is just a very short walk down the stairs to the beach.  The place is also great for traveling with kids.  There is a pool, hot tub, mini-golf, ping pong, etc.  However, we are all adults and my only complaint comes that we were never able to get in the hot tub because of all the kids.

  • Jul 15, 2010 by Jennifer A.

    This is a perfect place for traveling with kids.  I booked a family suite with a king and two queens and two bathrooms.  The kids were down a short hall in the suite which I like better an connoting doors.  The room was very nicely nautical and perfectly maintained.  There was so muh for the kids!  Ping pong,  a small mini golf set up,  badminton, heated sheltered pool and spa, giant chess or checked board, the beach below for beach fun and cookies.  Complimentary breakfast was very nice.   The only problem was that the free wi-fi was not much of a signal and I kept walking around looking for a better signal and never finding it.   Staff was very nice and friendly.  We walked to downtown Pismo along the beach for dinner.  Would love to make this a stop on my California Coastal ramblings!

  • Jun 29, 2010 by Danielle G.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my brief romantic stay here with the BF. Our room was beautiful and had the most awesome view of the beach and downtown Pismo. Located on the bluff, this hotel was quaint and quiet. Just the thing for an early summer getaway. I will definitely be back. PS- the room had 2 bathrooms! Amazing!

  • Jun 18, 2010 by Matt O.

    This is a five-star resort if I've ever seen one. The rooms are spectacular and the views are out of this world. It has beach access which is very useful. The clientele is top notch friendly people. It is a moderate walk away from both shell and pismo beach. The best part is the unbelievable mid- June rates for about $90 a night. Go pismo!!!!!!:)

  • Feb 18, 2010 by Madison M.

    nice place. feeling relaxed. friendly service.

  • Jan 26, 2010 by David C.

    Awesome place for an amazing price! We came here during the off season and during the week which explains why it was empty and we got a great rate. Two bedroom king size bed suite (950 sq/ft) with an ocean-front view for only $119/night (with AAA). It's very modern and got free wifi but not the best reception. I was able to setup the office desk so it was facing the balcony and ocean which worked out nicely. Free continental breakfast, in room fridge & microwave were nice perks. Would definitely come here again but probably not during the summer b/c the price for this room would be $350/night.

  • Nov 15, 2009 by Michelle F.

    This place is BEAUTIFUL and well maintained. The staff was very friendly and check in & check out was simple. The pool was under construction, but other than that everything was working well. Another positive note, this hotel is right off the freeway, so it was easy to get to.   I went here on a Wednesday, in the middle of fall, so there were not a lot of children or families staying here. It was pretty quiet, so I had no complaints. I'll definitely stay here again - but probably not in the summer when all the kids are out of school.

  • Oct 21, 2009 by TandemTraveler Z.

    My husband and I recently stayed here on our way to Hearst Castle. We were pleasantly surprised and impressed. The suites are in 3 buildings. One building is ocean front but ours was not. One of the bedrooms in our suite faced the courtyard although we could see a glimpse of the ocean in the distance. The other bedroom in our suite faced in the direction of the highway which is nearby. We didn't notice any traffic noise but we didn't use the bedroom facing the highway. The rooms are clean and are decorated with a nautical theme. The only thing I found less than ideal about the layout is that the first room (closest to the entry door) has a curtain rather than a door to close it off from the hallway. However, there is a door on the bedroom facing the ocean so it is possible to close that if you are sharing the suites for privacy. We did not stay at a peak time and felt the hotel was quite reasonably priced. It cost just as much to stay near Hearst Castle in a hotel that was not half as nice. Although I realize many people considering staying in Pismo plan to spend their time at the beach if you felt like visiting Hearst Castle it's about an hour away so you could drive to San Simeon, take a tour and eat lunch, and drive back as a day trip. When we stayed at the Pismo Lighthouse Suites we didn't realize until the end of our stay that it is possible to get to the beach on foot rather than by driving closer. To do so walk in front of the building with units facing the ocean (if you are not staying in that building you may need to walk past the pool  - which is nicely located overlooking the ocean - to get there) and keep walking in front of a neighboring hotel until you find the stairs that will take you to the beach. This is a hotel we would definitely visit again.

  • Oct 18, 2009 by Arielle R.

    This place was super mellow. Best continental breakfast i've ever been to, including a make your own waffle set-up, 4 varieties of cereal from a huge dispenser, Seattle's Best coffee, lots of bagels & pastries, juices. I was impressed if you couldn't tell. ha. My boyfriend and I shared a suite with his brother & sister in law. It had a great view of the ocean and was pretty spacious.  The lawn games were cool: the huge chess/checkers board & ping pong were fun. And mini golf! The pool/spa was another plus.  It was surrounded by large glass walls which you could see the entire ocean from. Great to go in for a nice sunset view :) The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the beach, down lots of stairs. Lots of parking and close to the downtown area. Overall, I would say that coming to the Lighthouse suites is a good place to stay !

    we stayed two nights in October 2009 with two  adults, two kids pros: large suites, 2 rooms, 2 bathrooms clean and well maintained oceanview, pool, hot tub, wifi, table tennis etc. cons: - its hot in the rooms,  no ac, cannot imagine to stay there in summer - you hear every step of neighbours above - its very close to the highway (some americans like this)

    If you are looking for a fantastic place to stay while in Pismo Beach, this is it.  This is a great place for families.  During our stay there were quite a few families here.  But it was still very pleasant and quiet.  The rooms are all suites with separate bedrooms.  If you are lucky, you can get the rooms that face the beach.  Terrific views of the ocean from your back door!  Continental breakfast and newspapers are included in the price of your stay.  The hotel is a short distance from downtown Pismo.

    Here are the big pluses about the hotel: +Very clean and well-maintained +Wonderfully large suite for travelling with family and having privacy for both parents and children with 2 king beds and 2 separate bathrooms +Social deck with mini-golf, ping-pong and life-size chess is a wonderful diversion for kids in the afternoon +So near the ocean where you can easily spot dolphins jumping at Pismo Beach and brown pelicans taking nose-dives for fish Here are the drawbacks: -You could end up staying near really noisy families or being in a unit near Highway 101 -The beach access does snake through other properties and does involve navigation of some precarious steps -Your partial ocean view could end up being a full neighboring hotel view -Healthy and or nicer dining nearby does not exist (but hey its near a pier) The choice was a toss-up between Embassy Suites or Pismo Lighthouse Suites.  I'm glad we chose Pismo Lighthouse Suites, but if I had to do it again I might choose Avila Lighthouse Suites by the same management company.

    A nicely appointed place to stay with roomy, nautical-themed 1-bedrm suites that are great for families. Oceanfront rms are worth the extra $$. My kids love the elevated rec area that has oversize chess set, badminton, table tennis, and…

    Very nice hotel. We had a first floor oceanfront king suite. Best thing ever. I loved that we could just put our kid to bed in the next room and hang out in the living room or outside in our patio and listen to the waves all night. Also there were two bathrooms which was pretty cool. I could totally see two couples or large families staying here comfortably. There was plenty of room for just the 3 of us. The room was clean and well-stocked with Bath & Body Works items (bonus for my husband because he loves BBW shampoo). Also the kitchenette was really useful -- a nice small fridge, wet bar and cabinets if you need them. I've read some complaints on the complimentary continental breakfast which I thought were unfounded. Continental breakfasts aren't meant to be any more than danishes and coffee and I thought the breakfast they offered went way beyond that. There was a large variety of cold cereals and hot (oatmeal in packets with hot water available), bagels & cream cheese, a bunch of different danishes, fruit cocktail, mini Yoplait yogurts, oranges, apples, and of course coffee, tea, milk and 4 different fruit juices. The best thing was the waffle maker. It's DIY but there are instructions and staff on hand to help if you need it. I looked forward to making my waffles every morning! Mmm...hot waffles with butter & syrup... I did agree somewhat with the complaints on the noise level. The first couple of days weren't so bad because we didn't have neighbors above us but once the room was occupied we could hear every foot step and door closing they did. I admit I was a bit annoyed by that. Also in the morning the housecleaning staff is pretty loud as they go from floor to floor with their carts and I could always hear their walkie-talkies going off. And by morning I mean before 8am which I think is still early for so much noise. I agree w/everyone about the hike to the beach. The walk over isn't bad but the steps leading down to the beach are really steep and uneven. We took our 3 year old son down there a total of 1 time during our stay and i was sooooo exhausted when we got back. LOL. All in all it was a very relaxing few days and I would definitely stay there again. Also note that mid-week rates are a LOT better than weekends. A LOT.

    Very good.  Clean rooms, well-maintained pool and spa, glassed in on the cliffs.  We enjoyed standing on our balcony, watching dolphins jumping in the ocean. It's quite a hike to the beach though - along the cliffs and down the long stairs.  If your party is all young folks, it's not an issue.  If you're traveling with small kids or your parents, that's a long walk back to the bathroom!   We had five adults and two kids in our two-room suite with room to spare.  Great place for a large family, or family-plus-grandparents.  I heard our neighbors discussing who was sleeping on the floor that night, so it seems this is a well-known amenity. Service was English-fluent and friendly.  Slight downside: they don't know local restaurants.  Their desk guy recommended Old Juan's, which is only two stars on Yelp.

    The hotel is conveniently located, however there is no room service, no air conditioner, small towels, poor service and awful TV reception.

    Great for families!  I went on a roadtrip to the central coast w/my husband and his parents.  This place had the perfect solution - suites that have their own bedrooms and bathrooms at a very reasonable price.  For a Thurs and Fri night stay, the average per night cost was about $170.  (Fri. night was more expensive.)  This place is right off the Price Street exit on 101 and it's right next to the ocean where you can go for a walk or watch the sunset.  They have outdoor badminton court, 3 ping pong tables, a human size chess set, a mini putting area, and a decent size swimming pool.  The rooms are pretty clean and decent size.  The suite has a microwave and mini frig.  We went to the SLO farmer's market and bought fruits which we kept in the frig.   (SLO is just 11 miles north of here.)  The stay comes w/continental breakfast and the check in office has Seattle's best coffee at all times.  They have bath and body works' shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash, soap.  (I hate hotels with cheap ass products and usually you'd have to stay at expensive hotels to get decent amenities.)  It's also conveniently located about 1/2 mile from a great restaurant for crabs called Cracked Crabs.  It also includes continental breakfast and free wireless.  I'd recommend this place for sure - it's nice and affordable stay.  (My husband is really picky about hotels and he liked it too, so that says alot.  Trust Me!)  One complaint is that there's no AC so it was a bit hot at night and we had to turn on the fan and open the window, which then was fine.  When we asked the front desk about AC, she said that all the hotels around that area doesn't have AC so I guess we couldn't have done any better at another hotel.

    I just happened upon this place while making plans for a getaway to San Francisco. We like to stop in Pismo to break up the driving and give the kids a break. But we have 3 teenagers, and it gets expensive. Pismo Lighthouse was perfect for us - large accomodations, clean, friendly, helpful (I had to do a load of laundry after an afternoon of ATV-ing) and very comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised that our rate dropped even more when I inquired about the AAA discount. Love this place - we'll be back!

    I am currently writing this review on my laptop in Pismo Lighthouse Suites, where we are enjoying a glorious Christmas vacation stay. As the others have noted, it is definitely a family-friendly joint. There is life-sized chess, miniature golf, badminton and ping pong. There is a heated pool and hot tub which people seem to enjoy using, even in the dead of winter. There is no direct beach access but it's very much within walking distance. Even though we don't have an oceanfront room, we can still see the ocean from our balcony. There are so many fabulous little touches that make staying here grand (this is our second time this year) - whether it's free coffee and newspapers in the lobby; free breakfast every morning from 7-10 AM; free wireless Internet; super-friendly staff; and general immaculate condition of the rooms and all facilities, including the gym. The rates are extraordinarily reasonable for the amount of space you get. We were able to rent two suites (each suite has one king bed in one room; two queen sized beds in the other room; two bathrooms) for our entire extended family right next to each other. Great place!

    On first blush, this place looks great and actually it's not bad. However, if you're looking for a place for a romantic getaway, this would not be the spot. As Ericka A stated perfectly, this is the perfect place to bring the whole family. During my stay here, there were kids everywhere! - in the game facilities, in the pool, in the hot tub, outside my window yelling, in the suite above me jumping on my head! Ugh. Another thing that drove me nuts was the fact that I could literally hear the folks above me, and everything the were doing, be it walking around, watching TV, talking or flushing the toilet. The walls appeared to be pretty thin, so at 3am I could hear the fan in their bathroom, and each toilet flush. This place could definitely benefit from some good double pained windows. This became very apparent when the staff was outside my window at 7am having a conversation, and I was able to hear every word, despite the windows being closed. They also advertise the fact that they have free internet, which is a huge selling point for some. I was one of those that was sucked in by this, and it was one of the primary reasons that we stayed here. I had some work to do, and thought it would be great to sit on the patio overlooking the ocean while doing some business emails. They failed to mention that they have one router, and that if you close the front door, you get no reception. I called the front desk and they said that they had a few access points to loan, but they were all out. The guy suggested that I sit in a chair in the bedroom, and work there, as there should be some reception there. Ugh! The views from the location are pretty spectacular and the rooms are pretty plush, but it is definitely a family environment.

    This is the perfect spot to bring the whole family for a vacation by the sea. My family and I have been coming here for a few years now and we love staying here. The beds are super comfy and the rooms are immaculate! The bathrooms are spotless as well. The nautical decor is fabulous and there is a nice fridge and microwave in the suites as well. The balcony is great for sipping wine while watching the waves. There are plenty of great fun things to occupy your time nearby too like wine tasting, atv'ing, hiking, boogie boarding, and lots of different farmers markets as well. The staff at this place is awesome and very accommodating. There is also a life size chess set outside which is a lot of fun, a badminton court, and even a putting green. They have a huge breakfast room with tons of offerings and even a waffle maker. So much fun!!
