    The food is a bonus. The real star here is the view of the ocean! One of the best spots to enjoy a leisurely meal worth glass to keep off the cold wind and heaters to keep you cozy. I would've given 5 stars but the garlic fries were overcooked.

  • Nov 17, 2020 by Josie Ontiveros

    They got a nice view but theres plenty of other hotels to choose from with better protection and security. The area is also horrible and them having no cameras makes it worse My car got stolen from, about 700 worth of stuff was taken and nobody saw nothing I felt unsafe. I Will never stay here to relax, study, stay for work, or anything I rather be secure at another lovely hotel nearby

    Nice place with amazing views from the ocean front upper level decks. Great fire pits with ocean views. Rooms are a little dated and decks are pretty close to one another. Surrounded by classic old school beach towns of Pismo, Shell Beach and Avila Bay, this area is a long time favorite of ours.

    My wife and I came here for our honey moon last week, this place is breath taking! We originally booked a room with a partial Ocean view but was offered an upgrade for a very small fee too a full ocean view! The room was amazing, very clean and Covid safe. We were so exhausted from the drive from Fresno too Pismo, that we got some dinner and than called it a night. At approx 8:30 AM the crash of a wave woke me up, I jumped out of bed like a kid on Christmas morning too go sit on the porch and watch the ocean waves. I would recommend anyone too the spyglass in!

    They got a nice view and all but there plenty of other hotels to choose from with better protection and security. My car got stolen from, about 1300 woth of stuff was token and nobody saw nothing I felt unsafe. I WILL NEVER STAY here to relax, study, stay for work, or anything I rather be secure at another lovely hotel nearby

    Kristen and the staff there are the Best!  They are so nice and treated us so good. We had some problems with a room that a booking agent booked for us that was the wrong room. We went to them and told them how we had gotten treated and they gave us what we had booked but the booking agent had showed us a picture that did not anywhere match what they gave us. Kristen made it RIGHT. It was our Anniversary and we were so happy that they could help us. We will be back. It is worth it. Our room had a fireplace and was ocean front. Separate sitting area and bedroom. Very nice. Great staff Great place Great view. So happy.

    Great experience at Spyglass Inn. The suite room is great, has patio that you can walk to the garden with ocean view. A relaxing place with sitting area in the garden with fire pit. So lovely.

  • Nov 04, 2020 by Robin Thomas

    Family loved the crab. Best garlic fries I've ever had. Beautiful heated patio. Very good service.

  • Nov 02, 2020 by Kristen T.

    Ummmmmmmm our experience was perfect. The beach, the romance, the quietness. It's almost unethical for a hotel to charge the rates they do for such unkept grounds. Chipped paint, old carpet, lack of cleanliness in the room. The dust on the molding of the doors, the grime, the baseboards. Please look at the rates of the hotels next to them before you decide to book here.

  • Nov 01, 2020 by Peggy H.

    The reservation price of 30% off when you book directly book was great! The view from our room and so close to the restaurant was a plus. Enjoyed using the firepit and relaxing. Felt very safe with the housekeeping. Just a little noisy from the neighbors past 11:00 P.M. but it was nice and quiet in the mornings to enjoy coffee and the view. It was a clean and comfortable room. Loved the Bigelow soaps! The restaurant next to the hotel was pretty good and the sunset view was amazing. We'll be back!

    Our family decided to a last minute trip to Pismo Beach from LA. Found this place online and decided to give this Inn a try. During the process of booking a room, my sister reserved room for a wrong date. We realized only when we were about to check in. We were having anxiety attacks, but the employee was very accomodating. My sis received a refund for the wrong reservation, and our extended family are enjoying our stay in our own rooms. Rooms are very clean, pretty, and the big screen LG tv is definitely a plus. Will definitely visit again.

  • Oct 30, 2020 by Drae D.

    There were two strands of hair on my bed and two hot tamales (candy) on the floor. It was pretty gross.

  • Oct 24, 2020 by Anna J.

    Nice and clean Inn. Both of the front desk girls were nice. We stayed in room 121, beach view outside our room. There's isn't beach access directly from the inn, but you can walk a little down the path and there is it! Great stay, no complaints.

  • Oct 23, 2020 by Nicole H.

    This is an email  I wrote to the general manager after my stay and it was ignored. "I'm contacting you in regards to my husband and my recent stay at the Spyglass Inn. I feel this email is necessary because we were not asked how our stay was and we did not receive a survey or anything to give you guys our feedback. I think you can agree it's important that your guests give feedback so your team knows what your doing well, how you can improve your guest experiences, and so that you don't get negative reviews on TripAdvisor or other review platforms. We stayed in room 114 from September 9th- September 11th. My husband and I needed a getaway and I actually used to work at Spyglass Inn about 14 years ago when I used to live in the area. I had great memories of Spyglass and it was our first choice for this reason. I have to be honest when I say our stay was a bit disappointing. I'll start with the positives, when we first checked in the person at the front desk was very helpful and kind to us and the 2nd night we asked for towels the person at the front desk that night was also very helpful and kind to us but poor thing, she seemed to have a lot on her plate and was trying to please everyone between the phones ringing and the guests in front of her.   As for the negatives, the first thing we noticed, we literally could not see the ocean at all from our room. I'm not even kidding when I say this, we saw nothing at all. I know the smoke is out of your control but we paid for an ocean view room and the smoke was so bad we saw no ocean the whole time even though we kept hoping it would appear again. I feel like the room price should have been the same as a standard room at a time you can't see the ocean. That was a bit of a bummer and I definitely regret paying for an ocean view room. In addition, the room was not clean like it should have been, we were really grossed out looking at the corners of the room and the baseboards, the carpets were completely nasty too. You could tell it was just a surface clean at a time we are all at risk of COVID 19 and the rooms should have been thoroughly cleaned. In addition, the bed was horrible, the mattress was sinking in, and my husband and I are both dealing with back pain still from our stay. I also have to note that I'm upset my jacket "has not been located". I know for a fact it was left on the bed in the room. It was a brand new Buffalo brand off white jacket and I'm assuming someone figured they got lucky with a brand new jacket and I will probably never see it again. I hope you can understand why I felt it was necessary to share this information with you. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to reply back to my email."

    We just love the atmosphere! Clean and peaceful and the fire pits are in a great place to were you’re not surrounded by other people. Very friendly staff, made our stay very pleasant..... we stayed back in March my husband and I only and this last time in August my oldest daughter and grandkids joined us and they Loved it also!! Great memories.

  • Oct 17, 2020 by Ryan S.

    Always great food, but the experience was the awesome. "Larry the table guy" provided a great time for us while celebrating a birthday. Best time I've ever had at a restaurant. Thanks Larry!!

  • Oct 16, 2020 by Charles J.

    Just stayed one night in a non ocean view room ( and paid $203). I do not post many reviews but wanted to give others a heads up to look elsewhere. The rooms do not have AC and was uncomfortably hot. We opened the window and then had to listen to the highway 101 traffic. Not a good sleep night.... There are many other hotels in the area that have AC, I wish i had done some more research......

  • Oct 16, 2020 by AJ S.

    We just stayed at spyglass inn, 100 degree weather and no air-cond. Last year when we stayed there they indicated they were going to install air. I will not stay there again untill they get air-cond. The rooms are nice however, when the evening fell and we closed the doors it got too hot in the room to sleep, very miserable.

  • Oct 15, 2020 by Amantha H

    There is no AC in the rooms. The hotel lobby has AC and is kept quite cool. They wouldn't let me cancel my stay and get a refund. If the weather is cool, no problem, but it's currently 80 degrees after midnight. The room has an odor as well. I recommend the Motel 6 or Holiday Inn.

  • Oct 14, 2020 by Cryslashar Bagshaw

    I'm currently disputing my charge for over $1100.00 on my credit card, and I only stayed two nights. I tried working with the office and most are new not trained and no managers available. Also, no a/c and we were miserable with temperatures over 90 during our stay this week. I wouldn't recommend this place due to staffing issues!

  • Oct 02, 2020 by Jackie H.

    No air conditioned rooms; the room is like a sauna ; very small pool; hot tub closed. With all the choices in the area, would not recommend.

  • Oct 01, 2020 by Trish G.

    I decided to stay one more day in the area after a terrible experience at the Vagabond Inn in SLO & this made me feel like the trip was worth it. The rooms were very nice & the fire pits & the hike down to the ocean with my kids really helped. Lily at the front desk was above & beyond friendly & so pleasant. I wish I could have stayed another 2 or 3 days. I'd go back for sure!

  • Sep 30, 2020 by Debra Guerin

    Don't tell anybody about this restaurant! Service was exceptional, food equally as good! Had the halibut with pasta, just enough pasta, hubby had stuffed petrale sole, excellent! Can't wait to go back!

  • Sep 28, 2020 by Bryanna Jackson

    Bug infested hotel . Extremely hot no AC you only get a ceiling fan that makes no difference. We complained about the roaches and spiders but they didn’t care . Took photos of the heater with was caked with dirt so if you turn it on you have to breathe it in. Cob webs in every corner including above and behind the bed. Caked dust in the corner by the refrigerator that was barley even cold. Before we left we always check up the bed to make sure none of our belongings were kicked under and I found a bank receipt from someone who stayed in our room over 2 weeks before which shows they don’t properly clean the room. Oh and there was a lot of gnat.. sitting on the towels and bedding . There was also makeup on one of our pillows.. I question if they cleaned the room .. we asked for a microwave and they gave us a dirty one with spilled food inside and the handle and buttons with sticky and covered in food

  • Sep 15, 2020 by Allison ONeil

    Inn is nasty broken shower sink leaking had to change room to stinky nasty carpet nasty bathroom

  • Sep 14, 2020 by Harry Delettre

    Great food, great service!!

  • Sep 01, 2020 by Kevin Rousseau

    Wife and I frequent, great food and huge patio with heaters. One of the best dining / view spots on the Central Coast.

  • Aug 31, 2020 by Manny C

    I paid $200 for one night stay, price was not an issue if the room had air conditioning, it had a 6" fan in room.

  • Aug 28, 2020 by Ed Balido

    Great relaxing atmosphere.. Excellent ocean view from hotel patio area!!

  • Aug 18, 2020 by liberata ramos

    Room is vibrating the whole time , no air conditioning. Rooms are humid and hot. Nobody answer the fri t desk

  • Aug 13, 2020 by Miss Nishelly

    Hi Chris,

    This was not a standard vacation. I stayed are your hotel for my wedding! I got married at The Spyglass Restaurant and decided to stay are your hotel for convenience. The room we received had stains on the fireplace and ottomans. The large chest where the coffee maker and fridge was LITERALLY broken with a door missing and broken hinges still attached. My wedding pictures of getting ready in that room are horrible due to the issues. I basically had to trash a large portion of the photos!

    In addition to that, there was NO screen door on the room when we arrived. It was a HOT day and there is no AC. This was a HUGE issue as I had two service dogs in the room and was told to just open the door to get a breeze! It wasn't until I spoke up in a stern voice that I was told they would bring a screen door (guess a part broke off and maintenance removed it to fix). I will gladly share pictures of the issues with the room.

    Considering you guys knew I was staying there for my WEDDING and still chose to give a room in that condition, shows that you do not care. I filled out your survey about my stay and was never contacted about it. Therefore I have decided to leave a review!

  • Aug 04, 2020 by Josie Delatorre

    It was good. We rented a room with a view. Also we were not able to use the pool or spa and our little ones were upset. Our towels and blankets had stains and i did not like there was no microwave or Ac in the rooms.

  • Aug 01, 2020 by Jeff Rocco

    Good:
    Excellent location, views and restaurant. Nice firepits and relaxation areas. Friendly staff.

    No AC, which forces you to open a bedroom window to the walkway when it's warm. This equates to lots of people passing by your window and lots of parking lot noise.

    Poor fixtures and a lack of accessories. The King Suite was very poorly appointed for over $450 per night.

    We stay on Pismo several times per year and we won't be back to this property for these prices

  • Jul 28, 2020 by Anita Vega

    The sunset was gorgeous. wish there were more bonfires there r only 3 so get there early. the balcony was very nice for us to enjoy the evening air. no coffee machine in the room was a bummer

  • Jul 27, 2020 by Team Jesus

    The only good thing this place has going for it, was the location. Overlooking the bluffs next to other nice more "luxurious" hotels. Our check in was 1 hour late, the room was mediocre, nothing to brag about. For the price, I expected it to be nicer. It was a "partial ocean view", you could only see the ocean from the tiny balcony. The room didn't have any extras AT ALL. We had the sufficient amount of towels, no coffee, 1 roll of tp, no iron or ironing board, just disappointing. The beds were a bit hard and there was no A/C. I don't recommend, nor will we stay again. I would pay another $30-$50 and stay at a different hotel.

  • Jul 26, 2020 by Anthony Alessi

    Food was outstanding. Cant say enough about the service and the views, well check out the pictures. Highly recommend eating at this lovely restaurant.

  • Jul 09, 2020 by Rose Light

    This was our first overnight stay here. Wish we could have stayed longer. Staff was excellent, friendly and courteous. Great view from the balcony.

  • Jul 01, 2020 by J Lynch

    We had a lovely, calm and scrumptious dine-in lunch today. We sat and enjoyed the gorgeous ocean view and were perfectly waited on by John. Couldn't have been a better experience

  • Jun 17, 2020 by Andrea C

    Such a quaint spot to stay in Pismo Beach for a getaway! The view of the bluffs from our room was a highlight! Also making s'mores as a family at one of the fire pits they have outside was really relaxing too. And the bed was one of the best I've slept in! Great location, beautiful views, and updated furnishings.

  • May 31, 2020 by Heather Rice

    The room was smaller than I expected, and they had more amenities closed than I was led to believe both when booking and upon arrival. (No pool, no coffee in the room, no bathrobes) The sliding glass door screen didn't lock, and there was no way to cool off the room aside from leaving the door open but I didn't feel safe leaving our room exposed like that. Overall it was a positive experience, but I'm not sure we will spend the money to go back there again.

  • May 21, 2020 by Josie Delatorre

  • May 10, 2020 by Shani Stolero

    Nice Inn with very good service. Very clean and comfortable for families. Great location near the beach with great view and very close beach is available in walking distance.

  • Mar 15, 2020 by Rachel Gerber

    Each time we come here we feel like we are so scared for. The service is PERFECT, the view is lovely...fire pits, perfect pool and spa. Highly recommended. Great with and without kids!

  • Feb 28, 2020 by Andrea Bradford

    Surly bartender killed "Happy Hour" vibe. Maybe everyone but me knew you had to get your own drinks at the bar from a bartender who literally threw change back at me. The advertise a happy hour bar menu but I had no idea how to order food. Many other happier happy hours out there.

  • Feb 19, 2020 by Beth Davis

    Dog friendly patio, beautiful view of the ocean, lots of tasty seafood options for lunch. Very efficient pleasant servers, relaxed atmosphere.

  • Jan 14, 2020 by Sarah n

    We liked it! Tons of amenities, pool, hot tub, fie pits. The room was really nice and ours had a balcony. The shower was great. You can walk along the bluffs out the back of the hotel. We made good use of the happy hour deals at the restaurant. The mango margarita was super. I would say the food could use a little more attention and seasoning but that didn’t stop us from eating it all. The bartender was very helpful and attentive. We sat on the back balcony and enjoyed the view of the ocean under the heat lamps.

  • Jan 12, 2020 by James Bush

    The Spyglass Inn is a modern well kept motel. The appearance of the hotel and the location are excellent. The check in process went quickly and smoothly. The desk clerk was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and well ordered. It would have been better with a table and chairs in the room. Also the room did not have a heater/air conditioning system with a thermostat. The pool and hot tub were great and very clean. Overall I would recommend this motel for any stay in the Pismo area.

  • Jan 06, 2020 by Patrick O'Neill

    Stay upstairs because otherwise there can be loud people above you late at night and in the middle of the night. Great views! Easy parking. 10 minutes from Avila, SLO, right in Pismo - central spot with great 101 access.

  • Jan 05, 2020 by savage blonde

    Room was very nice and clean. Only thing I can complain about and it was actually kinda funny is the in room fireplace isn't going to give you the romantic ambiance you might be hoping for..... just a heads up lol. The fire pits outside are nice. Also if you think about walking down to the water around sunset or later..... you MUST have a light source. It's pitch black on the public path/ stairs to the beach.

  • Jan 04, 2020 by Lonce Lamonte

    The bar is so nice with friendly people and a view that's magnificent. The outside tables for dining are also fabulous. The room was first class with a view and nice amenities. This is a class place on the Pacific Ocean. I also loved watching the surfers in their wet suits! I give Spyglass Inn a 10 on a one to ten scale.

  • Dec 29, 2019 by Jenna Quinzel

    It was a last minute stop on our way back from Texas and it was a great time! We will gladly stay here again!

  • Dec 09, 2019 by Tiana Sanders

    It's a beautiful room. The front desk was amazing. We are really enjoying our stay.

  • Dec 07, 2019 by Peggie D.

    Pleasant enough place, thought I paid $60 more per nite for a ground floor, oceanview room w/fireplace that was "quirky" in it's operation.  Closet didn't open and close well but that's my only complaint really besides a ground level room was definitely more noisy than an upperlevel what with people walking and talking and sitting by firepit.  That's the way it goes...Some lessons learned on my part.  Other than this?  Excellent staff; very accommodating and yes, I'd stay there again.

    Lilly at  the front desk is a 5 star employee! Booked our stay here over the 2019 Thanksgiving holiday. The room met our expectations as there were pluses and minuses. The plus was one of most comfortable beds I ever slept in. For the first 2 nights at least. As it ended up I got to test another room's bed in another room because at about 7:30 p.m. on our last night's stay,  the sound of running water through the piping system started up. We were beginning to watch movies when this started  and midway through the  second movie, the noise continued . It sounded like WE were running the shower but we weren't . At 9:30 we decided it would be too much to try to go to sleep with this. I went down to the office and the most charming person named Lily took care of us. She moved us to another room easy for us to get to. Super duper quiet. The bed WAS different. Had I not slept in the extra cozy bed, I never would have discovered the difference. Both were good. One was exceptional. Lily however was the star of our stay. She was just sweet. I walked in the office kind of mad but within seconds, Lily charmed me into submission while she fixed things. She just has something special that I wish more human beings had. Pismo stole our hearts. And we leave with heavy hearts after discovering that the ATV Pismo Beach experiences will come to an end. The Dunes are closing. So sad. We had sooooooo much fun there. We will miss it.

    Sara (Sarah) is the Best Waitress and Assistant Manager. That's why we go, besides the Ultimate Best view, and Of course the Food is phenomenal. Thank you to the cooks, the Salmon, Rib eye Steak, salads, all so delicious. Best by far for the money too. You Must try the food here, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. All you can eat Dungeous Crab night exceptional also.

  • Nov 21, 2019 by Pam Cain

    My third stay at the Spyglass inn surpassed my expectations. When I checked in, they offered to upgrade my room for a small additional charge, and the room did not disappoint! I had a full ocean view room with a patio that stepped out to a lawn area with a fire pit that turned on with a push of a button! I watched the sunset there ,wqrmed by the fire and stunned by the view. The king bed was so comfortable that I slept for about 9 hours that night. I will return to the Spyglass Inn!

  • Nov 18, 2019 by Anthony Johnson

    Spyglass Management, thank you for responding but my comments did not save before. My issue with the hotel was twofold. We contacted front desk 3 times requesting coffeee mugs/cups and also drink glasses and never received them. we also contacted the front desk requesting maintenance to come fix the bathroom exhaust (fart fan) and never saw or heard from anyone. The hotel and restaurant were great and our room was clean and the fire pits were awesome. but these little items play a key role in a 2 night stay, along with reaching out to your guests when they reach out for help.

  • Nov 05, 2019 by Harris Tashia

    The view was amazing. Everything we needed was in arms reach, from the beach to the resturants, gas station even ice machine. Over all, this was the perfect hotel for my husbands birthday.

  • Nov 03, 2019 by Rita S.

    I love the location of Spyglass and the view, but there is definitely room for improvement on the food. I had a cod fish sandwich for $16, and while I was chatting , I ate half a sandwich before realizing I was eating mostly tartar sauce with a few bits of cod mixed in. I opened the other half of my sandwich to find a lot of lettuce, onion, tomato and sauce, but little bits of fish. I thought I would get a nice piece of fish for that price. The coconut shrimp said light coating, but it was heavy, crunchy coating with not enough sauce. My daughter had ahi tuna tacos, again, little small pieces, and no sauce. If you are looking for good food at reasonable prices, this is not the place. Have a wine, enjoy the view, and call it a day. Btw, server checked with manager and removed $8 for half a sandwich, and asked why I ate the first half, ha! Nuts!

  • Oct 29, 2019 by Archie F.

    Beautiful ocean view room and great customer service. Clean and definitely a return stay will be in our future.

  • Oct 20, 2019 by Anne B.

    Hotel location - perfect.  Restaurant food - yummy and efficient.   My first room was normal.  However, room not quite clean.  Leftover soda cans left at bathroom floor.  I extended stay and switched to Ocean View.  Beautiful room/view.  Sink had slow drain.   Check out - mistake in charging entire stay vs. business card instead of first room to business card and extended stay to personal card. No genuine apologies with cleanup issues or credit card charging.  Customer Service needs improvement.

  • Oct 15, 2019 by Clarissa R.

    My boyfriend & I stayed at the Spyglass Inn for my birthday trip. The pool is located in an awkward place, right in the middle of the parking lot. The restaurants service was a little slow. We went to the bar & ordered some drinks & appetizers, I did find a hair in my sauce (extremely gross) when I told the server she seemed unbothered. Didn't even give us a discount nor did she really apologize which was a little odd. The morning of check out I called the front desk to inquire about a late check out, she kindly advised we can stay until 12. At about 11:20 a housekeeper came banging on our door I responded that we have a late check out. I would say about 20 minutes we heard another knock saying if we were still there. It was very frustrating since we were trying to relax. I felt rushed packing my things. Overall I must say the views are amazing, I feel like it is only worth the price to stay for an ocean view room.

  • Oct 03, 2019 by Allen Cox

    For our 5-year anniversary we decided to splurge a little on our hotel room budget and went with the Spyglass Inn King suite with an ocean view. I was a little worried that we would wind up in something too "nice" to really enjoy but we were delighted to be wrong about that. The rooms were clean and comfy. The staff was down-to-earth and really helpful. The location was close enough to the beach to see and hear the waves but not cost an arm and a leg. Will definiately be going back!

  • Oct 02, 2019 by Min Hee Y.

    Room was clean and service is sooo pleasant!  The fact that it's oceanfront with campfire was a huge plus as well.  Don't forget to enjoy breakfast at Spyglass Inn Restaurant at a discounted price for being a guest here!

  • Sep 30, 2019 by Scott Weiner

    Beautiful location with helpful and cordial staff. My only complaint is the lack of air conditioning in the rooms. I realize this may be par for the course in California, but a stuffy room makes it hard for me to sleep. The fire pits by the beach were a great place to hang out and have a drink. Overall, an excellent bargain and I recommend the Spyglass Inn for anyone traveling to Pismo Beach.

  • Sep 24, 2019 by Heather D.

    We stayed here as a last minute trip and really enjoyed this place! Great location and the rooms were very clean. The fire pits were a bonus.

    We (unfortunately) only stayed one night at this beautiful location. Would highly recommend it to anyone needing a place to stay in the Pismo Beach area. Will definitely return here our next time on the Coast.

    We love the Spyglass! Been coming here for years and we come here an average of 3 times a year. They did complete remodels of all the rooms about 10 years ago, and of course with that came a price increase. The beds are now worn out which of course is what you use most in hotel. Our last stay we mentioned it and they gave us some money off, we don't want money off and we want to come back to our go to in the central coast. Please replace these worn mattresses and curtains with holes. Other reviewers have pointed this out.

    I absolutely love this place!!!
    Great lunches at affordable prices
    Try the Lettuce Wraps w Sweet Chili Sauce
    Great Kobe Burger and Garlic Fries
    The view from inside is outstanding
    Great Al Fresco dining year round
    A perfect sized bar to sit and enjoy a cocktail or a nice meal any night of the week
    Nice Romantic spot for couples
    Great staff- friendly and helpful

    We really enjoyed our stay here. I would suggest going for a first floor king room ocean view. Definitely worth the extra than getting a standard room. First floors have patios and a electric push start fireplace in them. Comfy beds. Great service. Beautiful view.

  • Aug 30, 2019 by Brian K.

    If you can get an ocean view room here for less than $130, it's totally worth it.  Clean rooms (except for under and behind couch), nice beds, towels, hot water and pressure.  Keurig and mini fridge in the room.  Nice ocean view, breeze and sounds of the ocean from the room.  On site restaurant (we didn't try), very short walk to grocery and other restaurants.  Nice hot tub and pool.  Just outside rooms are gas fire pits--nice to hang out.  If the price is right, we will return.

    Love this place. Unbeatable Pacific Ocean Views. Good eats and drinks! Great staff as well

  • Aug 17, 2019 by skitlas

    Stayed here for 3 nights. It is right on the ocean side on a bluff. The views are beautiful. My favorite part was the Spyglass Inn restaurant. It has a view of the ocean. The food was wonderful. Loved the Avocado omelet in the morning. The night we had dinner we had the Bacon wrapped filet with Bearnaise sauce. Wow was that delicious. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful. My room was a bit stuffy, as it only has the front window. They do provide a fan to help with circulation. The bed was very comfortable, hard to get up in the morning. Lots of things to do in Pismo.

  • Aug 16, 2019 by Yo momma Went to college

    Upper end hotel. They have a great bar that anyone can visit, you can also get access to their pool if you buy food or drinks from their restaurant/bar. Lots of free concerts in the summer on Sunday

    5 stars for the ocean-front lawn and beautiful sunset views. 3 stars for the rooms, which were very basic but good enough for a 1-night stay. We had dinner in downtown Pismo Beach, which is very close by, and then got a smores kit from the front desk and headed down to the lawn to make the smores while watching the sunset. Really a beautiful and relaxing view - if there is any reason to stay here, it is this, as the rooms are nothing to write home about. The next morning we had a great breakfast at the Spyglass Inn Restaurant and were on our way. If you're just passing through on your way down the coast, I would recommend an overnight stop here to enjoy the view!

  • Aug 14, 2019 by Neal Skuro

    A great property close to the ocean with a beachy feel. The rooms are modest but in a good way if you want that quaint beach experience. If you're looking for a high end resort feel then this isn't the place for you. The restaurant has a great breakfast and value is fantastic when you show your room key. A 5 min walk to the beach down nearby stairs. We will definitely stay here again. I have 2 children under age 13 and they thoroughly enjoyed their stay too.

  • Aug 14, 2019 by mhaupt91

    We stayed at the Spyglass Inn for one night during our honeymoon along the cost. We booked a standard room, which was clean and spacious yet did not have any view. We would recommend booking a room with sea view. We had a couple of spiders in our bathroom... our room was on the ground floor. Otherwise, the room was really nice and the service at the front desk was superb. The food at the restaurant was good, yet quite pricey. The pool is heated yet a bit small. The jacuzzi was nice.

  • Aug 12, 2019 by lfpalmer

    The ocean view room views are absolutely wonderful. I was given the impression that we would have a "partial ocean view," which, in a couple past hotels, has meant stick your neck way out the window, but this view was amply delightful, although it wasn't the best view room --- the ones you see in the hotel photo --- (and we didn't pay for best view). I don't know when the hotel was remodeled but the room and the rest all had a newish look to it. The rooms are large and lovely, as are the grounds. The restaurant has an ocean view as well and there are fire rings in front of the ocean-view rooms for some night time ambiance enjoying your S'more kit purchased at the front desk. Rooms have a mini-fridge and coffee maker and there's a little microwave available in the lobby, along with ready coffee. There's a large shower head plus a hand-held sprayer. They work well (with drought-conscious restricted flow) once you figure your way through the various knobs and handles. There's a convenient extra little sink outside the bathroom. The bathroom is very well designed for the disabled, with a bench and the hand-held sprayer, and amble bars, although one does have to climb over the tub edge. There's a bar next to the toilet as well. The bed frame corners stick out from the mattress with a sharp wooden point that may be frustrating to one who bruises easily, but the frame is so special and lovely that I wouldn't know how to change that. The alarm clock pretty much lights up the whole room at night. Put your jeans over it. The air conditioner/heater unit is quiet. The room was quiet enough but, strangely, you could easily hear people talking next door, from the bathroom. We were just sure to close the bathroom door at night, just in case, although we never heard much from the room, even though there was a frolicky young boy next door. The trash units near the fire rings are desirably attractive and subtle, but not large enough to hold the remains from the evening's visits. Then the birds come early in the morning and throw the trash around. I recommend the hotel empty these regularly in the late evening or add something larger; also empty first thing in the morning, watch for later bird visits (restaurant waitresses can certainly see this), and consider lids for the cans, as the dispersed trash really tarnishes the grounds views. I recommend the management also train their staff to watch regularly for other trash that may land around the property. We had a couple little issues with the room but the staff was very friendly about it and very prompt to remedy.

  • Aug 10, 2019 by Patricia C.

    This place is really 4.5. Usually love everything they serve. Last had the seared ahi salad which was tasty. Love the garlic fries. Great outdoor seating and lots of good indoor seats as well. Huge menu. Breakfast until 11:30.

  • Aug 09, 2019 by Wayne S

    This is the second stay here and it was just as good, if not better! Friendly staff accommodated our request for an upgrade, Quiet,comfortable room with beautiful view. The restaurant serves quality dishes.

  • Aug 07, 2019 by JOSH JONES

    Room was top floor over looking ocean and pool. Front desk referred us to probably my top 5 best restaurants of my life. Ventana Grill. Hot tub is super hot and pool is perfectly heated. Enjoyed our honeymoon stay and will recommend this hotel in the future. Oh yeah... breakfast at the spyglass restaurant for 7$ is perfect way to thank the guests before they head out on the road. Thank you

  • Aug 07, 2019 by Linda Peterson

    We often come up here when we want an ocean view experience whether sitting on the patio or inside looking out the windows. We have been happy with any food we have ordered and quantities are generous. It is interesting that it feels elegant as well as casual so either dress fits in. Wait staff is friendly. Only slight complaint would be that it is slow, however who is going to think of complaining with such views to enjoy.

  • Aug 05, 2019 by Cole P.

    The place was super nice! The only thing that bothered me was when we checked in it took 35 minutes with only other family with us. The s'mores was awesome! It's $10 for a s'mores kit. We bought are s'mores from a 7'11. At 7'11 it's only $16 but you get more! Nice hotel!

  • Aug 01, 2019 by D L

    We had a room with a beautiful view of the ocean. I give this hotel 5-stars for the view! Also, customer service was top rate and they deserve 5-stars too! Room was clean in the bathroom area, and the sheets were nice and clean on the bed. Outside grounds were very beautiful. Even though this hotel was next to the highway, you couldn't hear any road noise. No elevators, so if you have any physical issues, request a ground floor room. Also, no type of complimentary breakfast available. There is a restaurant attached which can be expensive. They do offer discounts for some breakfast items. Unfortunately, the room itself was a bit of a disappointment and you felt like you were in a cheap place downtown. Had a 70's vibe. Carpet was dirty, furniture was outdated and the mattress had permanent indentations. It was very uncomfortable and we didn't get a good night's sleep while there. Desk had no plug-ins close and we had to search for an outlet. They really need to put a lamp with plug-ins on top of the desk to fix this problem. Desk chair was hard and uncomfortable. Sofa was very deep and low to the floor. Mini-cooler (which they consider a refrigerator) takes a long time to cool things down, No microwave. Coffee-maker was in a weird location in the cabinet and you had to bend down to work it. Balcony was nice but not private at all. You could see everyone and hear everyone. Definitely need some type of privacy screens. I really wanted to relax and have a nice glass of wine and enjoy a romantic evening watching the sunset, You just couldn't do that with people sitting so close to you! Chairs on patio were uncomfortable. You couldn't lay back and get some sun or read a book. Couple next to us smoked, so smell floated over to our balcony and inside our room. We had to come in and shut the door to get away from it. Between uncomfortable chairs, the lack of privacy, hearing loud conversations with frequent F-bombs, and the cigarette smoke, we just had a hard time enjoying our balcony. We spent most of the day away from the hotel to escape this stuff. Our recommendation is to get a nice room that is less expensive somewhere else. You'll be spending most of your time away from the room anyway, and there are other places where you can catch that million dollar view.

  • Jul 31, 2019 by evabP9592...

    I enjoyed my stay here. Comfortable and clean room. The only negative was the couple sitting by the pool blasting cheesy 80’s music... right off the highway and some rooms have fire pits and ocean views. A hidden gem.

  • Jul 30, 2019 by Larry G.

    Not a first. But we did come back for a second time! Last time they were great, this time the same. Great service and very nice room! If you need a place for a decent price. Here's your place.

  • Jul 30, 2019 by Owen C

    We stayed for one night on our way up the West Coast. The hotel looks a bit dated, but is actually really comfortable. The receptionists were welcoming and informative. Room spacious and very clean - lack of a/c not a problem though it was quite a cool night. We ate at the adjoining restaurant - lovely location and view and the food was of good standard and value. Breakfast also good value. Very friendly restaurant staff.

  • Jul 28, 2019 by Lindsey J.

    Unfortunately my experience with Spyglass this summer was not so wonderful. In the past our stays have always been great with clean rooms and beautiful scenery. I was able to get away only one weekend with my two sons (17 and 9 months) they were very courteous to allow me to only stay Saturday night when they require a two night minimum.... although I was charged peak price for the night. I walked into my room expecting the experience I've always had. Instead, in my ocean view room. The floors were disgusting. Black! I put my baby down to let him stretch out after our long drive and after just a few minutes of crawling his legs, hands and feet were black. So gross. The hotel manager was beyond helpful to relocate us to another room and even had the staff move our things for us. Although the second room wasn't much better. He carpets were not as bad but after crawling around a bit his legs and feet were dirty. It's just not what I expect after paying over $400 for the one night. The ocean view was beautiful as always, but you walk out the other door to the parking lot and outside our door was an trash can filled to the brim and another completely full garbage bag next to it that was never thrown away, was still there when we left. It's just not exactly what I would expect considering my past trips there were great. Very difficult to have a 9 month old in a room that you're not comfortable letting him crawl in. But the staff is still so nice and I'm hoping they get it together because I love the location and love the rooms with the walk right outside to the fire pits.

  • Jul 28, 2019 by 712alicia...

    I should have booked an ocean view as those are the rooms to stay in at this hotel- for sure! Great location, access to the beach and nice fire pits on the lawn to enjoy the ocean breeze. Unfortunately, there is no AC in the rooms, so if you are in a room away from the ocean breeze it will be warm in the summer. There is a ceiling fan but it was still too warm.

  • Jul 28, 2019 by AJICE

    We only stayed overnight because we were only passing by but I would actually like to come back and spend a few more. But if so I would rather get a sea view room for the better experience. Their outdoor area looked so nice. The room was nothing special but we did not expect much.

  • Jul 28, 2019 by pdgaffer

    The location is great , but that is where the stars start to fall off the cliff in my rating. The room we stayed in had very thin walls letting you here your neighbors do everything, and for us it was kids on a sugar high at 6am, ouch! The room is very small and there was a stain on the floor as soon as we walked in (rm135). Other than that the room was fairly basic and I guess it’s a room we are not typically used to being how old it was but it did the job for our 2/night stay. We tried to upgrade to a better room but the front desk advised it was % full. When I checked out I was going to advise the front desk staff, but she clearly didn’t care about the stay, and just handed me a receipt and didn’t even say thanks , and/or bye. I decided it wasn’t worth it and would be better off getting out of dodge. All in all I would never stay here again if I am in the area, and would advise those reading this to look elsewhere too. Cheers

  • Jul 26, 2019 by Coach L.

    'Very Disappointed' I made my reservation online for a room with a partial ocean view and A king sized bed. I received a room with a king bed and no view. The room was musty and some Of the furniture was dirty. A nice person at the front desk tried to help but we were told no other rooms were available.  We waited for the manger. When the manager did not appear after several minutes, the young lady from The front desk went to inquire on our behalf - the manager still did not appear. The front desk person said that we could either take 50 dollars off our stay or a full refund (go find another stay) however the chances of that happening in Pismo in the evening is very unlikely. We were given a bottle of febreez and tried to make the "best of it" when we went to check out the next day, the new front desk person said that there were no notes left previously on our account from the incident the night before or anything about a discount. She apologized and we did get the discount but should have been more - at this point did not have the capacity to argue and wanted to proceed. Be aware that looks can be very deceiving and will not recommend even at a reduced rate.

  • Jul 24, 2019 by John Bunn

    Fantastic location, excellent staff. They even smoothly handled a very unpleasant woman ahead of us demanding something she was clearly not entitled to smoothly and professionally. She made an outrageous claim that someone on the phone had promised her the ability to cancel early and randomly without penalty, an obvious lie and an affront to the staff. They handled it so well even though the rest of us in line probably would have preferred to punch her....... Excellent customer service!

  • Jul 23, 2019 by Jesse Mueller

    Great location, nice hotel, decent prices, but VERY noisy. No AC or even a fan so with your window open to stay cool you just hear kids screaming all day. Wood floor structure so without any fan sounds or noise machine, be prepared to hear EVERYTHING. We could hear the people upstairs stomp their way to the bathroom at 3:53AM, pee in the toilet, slam the seat down, and then flush. It was outstanding.

  • Jul 21, 2019 by Dawn M

    We are currently packing up after a weekend stay at the Spyglass Inn. Our first night there was a couple in the room next door arguing loudly and slamming things at midnight, and my kids felt unsafe in the room. I spoke with the front desk the next morning and they upgraded us to an ocean view room, and also adjusted our bill to be the lowest possible rate for two days. I cannot say enough about the service and staff here. We will definitely be back.

  • Jul 12, 2019 by Mick Pratt

    Chris was very helpful when we checked in about an hour early. He was able to verify our room would be ready in about 15 minutes. Fantastic view from our balcony!

  • Jul 12, 2019 by Troy N

    We've been to many nice hotels including all the ones in Vegas. Spyglass Inn is not fancy but nice, relaxing and clean with a beautiful ocean view. Great place for family. Watching the excitement of my wife and kids when they entered the room was priceless.

  • Jul 12, 2019 by dianekay3

    We very much enjoyed our stay at the Spyglass Inn. We chose an oceanfront room, which was excellent. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the room was beautiful and very clean. We wanted a location that was quiet, which is why we chose a hotel away from downtown Pismo or Avila, and the Spyglass Inn certainly delivered. We would stay here again!

  • Jul 12, 2019 by Mrs L.

    Well, there are pros and there are cons: Pros: staff is friendly and helpful. Housekeeping is very sweet, very helpful, and they do a very good job. Good location, but only if you get a room overlooking the water. Nice little benches that overlook the water on the other side of hotel. Cons: the price was way too high for this hotel. We didnt get a room overlooking the water, and i feel regretful that i booked there wihout specifically requesting that kind of room. We ended up right above the lobby which is near the staircase. It was very noisy, esp in the mornings and the evenings. Our room overlooked the parking lot and the swimming pool. Lots more noise. We wouldve been better off staying in a motel 6- same type of amenities. Maybe Spyglass has a prettier lamp and bedpost, but it is pretty much the same thing for 3 times the amt. The far south fire pit was broken during our stay. Was pretty disappointed.

  • Jul 10, 2019 by Kishan T

    Rooms were nice and well maintained along with a great front desk service. 1st floor room's are great for families especially Kids had fun playing in the lawn all day which is right in front of patio with a great view of the ocean.

  • Jul 09, 2019 by Jacqueline

    Ocean view rooms are worth the money. Nice balcony to sit on and watch the sunset. 3 bonfire pits just outside the rooms overlooking the ocean. Hotel provides smores kits for a small fee. Short walk to the beach. Restaurant/full bar on site. They offered breakfast specials for hotel guests. Overall, great stay!

  • Jul 09, 2019 by marthajqu...

    Our stay was fantastic at our hotel. People were very nice and helpful. Food was great. Everybody very pleasant. We recommend Spyglass Inn to everybody. Love It. Very Very Clean. We recommend you try this place. View is spectacular.

  • Jul 08, 2019 by x5verde

    Hotel reformado con buenas habitaciones a buen precio, muy recomendable. La recepción es mejorable pero el resto lo compensa , buen restaurante con muy buen servicio. La terraza mirando al mar con la chimenea encendida es un espectáculo, repetiremos seguro.

  • Jul 07, 2019 by Pete K

    Great room& view. Perfect bed & linens The patio had very comfortable chairs. Beautiful grounds and plants. Just wished that the weather would allow a view of the sunset. Will try to stay there again with better weather. You could hear the tide coming in

  • Jul 04, 2019 by 279finnh

    We stayed for one night on our way towards LA. Clean and quiet rooms, with comfortable beds. Pool is clean. Had breakfast at their restaurant, and found it ok. Nothing special, and kind of missed the toast. All in all we can recommend this place for a short stay.

  • Jul 02, 2019 by Carllll

    Das Spyglass Inn liegt als eines von mehreren Hotels direkt am Pazifik mit fantastischer Sicht auf den weiten Ozean (unbedingt Zimmer mit Meerblick buchen), eine stabile Treppe führt hinunter zu einem kleinen Sandstrand, die Zimmer sind ausreichend geräumig, wenn auch nicht luxuriös. Wir hatten ein Zimmer im Erdgeschoss, weshalb man allerdings von dem Mieter über uns jeden Schritt gehört hat. Abends kann man sich an ein "Lagerfeuer auf Knopfdruck" (mit Gas) setzen, sehr romantisch... Dazu noch ein kleiner geheizter Pool mit Liegen (ohne Schatten!) und ein etwas zu heisser Hot tub.

  • Jul 01, 2019 by Ryan D.

    Spyglass Inn was a great experience for my family! We had two partial ocean view rooms for one night. When I called for an early check-in, the rooms were unfortunately not ready so we decided to stay a little longer at the beach, and then go to dinner. Once we arrived we were thrilled to see we received a complimentary upgrade to full ocean view rooms. There was a party at the hotel next to us, and when we arrived to our rooms, we were very thankful we were moved further away from the noise. With two children in our group, it would have been a rough night. The rooms were clean and the sounds of the ocean were soothing from a long day. The following morning, we rode ATVs and were accommodated with a late checkout which we were very thankful for. It gave us time for a quick shower and not rush to pack everything early in the morning. Thank you Spyglass! One side note: I wish they had more fire-pits available. We were really excited to have s'mores because they offered them at the front desk for a small fee. But when we looked out our balcony, all three pits were taken with large families so there wasn't any room. Although this was a negative, it did not affect our overall stay and does not deserve a star decrease at all. We had an excellent time!

  • Jun 25, 2019 by lauren K

    We really loved our stay here. Its in a perfect location in Pismo. Our room was facing the water. Great views of the ocean and nice path along the ocean. The room was clean, nice and simple. Firepits out front were a nice touch. We will be back.

  • Jun 23, 2019 by Diana R

    We enjoy visiting this area on occasion. We always stay at the Spy Glass Inn. It’s very clean and comfortable. The beds are comfortable. The ocean views are spectacular. The staff is outstanding. We look forward to our next visit. The room rates are competitive.

  • Jun 23, 2019 by Trilogy M...

    Thanks to everyone at the Spyglass for making this a memorable time for us on this special occasion. The room was spotless, the view was amazing and the dining locally was outstanding. Can’t wait to come back!

  • Jun 22, 2019 by tomngeri3...

    Have stayed at this hotel for 4 years Years now on our June trek for the ocean n wine. Great location for dining and the wineries in Paso and SLO. GREAT Views, fire pits, and the staff is Excellent and try to accommodate your requests. Cookies aren't bad either!!. This is our go to place when going to the Central Coast. And yes it will be yours also! .

  • Jun 21, 2019 by Tracy Provins

    It was okay. The price was too high for what we got. The front office staff was not friendly at check out. But great view of the ocean!

  • Jun 20, 2019 by NCal85

    The Spyglass Inn turned the Cal Poly graduation weekend into a nice vacation! Fantastic ocean views and a nice hotel. Friendly staff and stylish rooms, outdoor fire pits and pool and hot tub. Nice restaurant too - Great overall experience

  • Jun 19, 2019 by Phailin Mong

    First time visit here! Room is so nice an clean! Such a peaceful place. Only problem was people stayed in the hot tub for 2 hours while we waited, and never ended up going in . So we decided to go to the fire pit. However, the fire pits turned off earlier than 10 o’clock . Unfortunately we decided to relax with a few drinks on our balcony that we upgraded to. But the lights never turned off. There was no privacy and light were shinning in our face. We walked around the ocean front rooms with our only being partly ocean view. Everyone was on there balcony relaxing with there lights off. Kinda upsetting to see different accommodations for the full ocean front.

  • Jun 18, 2019 by Annie P.

    The staff was so wonderful and accommodating. We were able to check in at 12 - thank you so much.  We drove 3 hrs from SF.  They upgraded us to a bigger room with ocean view because there was something wrong with the first one - we were happy to move.  Spyglass inn is a beautiful hotel on the beach but without direct access to beach.  Regardless, the surrounding is stunning.  Will return soon.

  • Jun 18, 2019 by APAP1234

    Chose this hotel as part of our trip down the pacific coast and we were not disappointed! Just a short ride away from Pismo Beach at Shell Beach in an ideal location for us. Our room was very clean, large comfy bed, excellent dressing room area, beautiful furnishings and all of high standard. Balcony gave us lovely views of the ocean, well maintained gardens and the very popular fire pits in the evening. We had breakfast at the attached Spyglass restaurant which could do with updating, the food was just ok.

  • Jun 14, 2019 by Anthony L.

    Spyglass Inn has become a home away from home for me and my girlfriend. It's located on one of the most gorgeous stretches of the Central Coast. Each time I visit Spyglass Inn, I come away extremely satisfied with my stay. Paying a little extra for an ocean view room is definitely well worth it. The first floor ocean rooms have sliding patio doors that grant access to a cliff-side area that features grassy areas, paved walkways, and several fire pits that are exclusively for hotel guest use. Hotel staff at Spyglass Inn have always been nothing less than exceptional on every visit. From check in to check out, every interaction is pleasant and professional. The hotel is in a great location. Spyglass sits a stone's throw from the highway entrance, so losing your way is near impossible. Tons of restaurants, retail, and entertainment are a few minutes away as well. If that wasn't enough convenience, the Spyglass Restaurant is literally right next door. The only reason I'm not giving five stars has to do with the room's furnishings, specifically, the beds. I always wake up with a sore back after a long night's sleep. I imagine it's the mattresses they use. Still, when you take into account all the great things about Spyglass Inn, this point is very trivial (in my opinion). I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area. Give it a try!

    Dopo aver lasciato Carmel Valley e quel piccolo paradiso, visitiamo Monterey e Carmel e arriviamo a Pismo Beach in tempo per scaricare le valige e ambientarci nella nuova camera che ci coccolerà per una notte ( la penultima ..) .. ed entriamo in un altro piccolo pezzo di paradiso ! Personale cortese e simpatico, location sulla strada ma molto bella , abbiamo una camera al piano terra con patio e caminetto con vista sull oceano e 3 faló davanti a cui avremmo potuto cucinare i marshmallow se avessimo voluto.. Accesso alla spiaggia e piscina a disposizione , ristorante con possibilità di pranzo cena e colazione con sconti per chi alloggia li ( i prezzi sono la metà !) . Unica pecca è stata a colazione quando ho chiesto un espresso e mi è arrivato un cappuccino ma può capitare dai Ottimo anche per la posizione vicina alla strada e vicina al centro . Consiglio !

    After a 10 day trip up the coast and to Napa, my wife and I had one more stop to make before heading home. On the way up, we met some friends (that live in Arroyo Grande) for breakfast at the Spyglass Restaurant. My wife commented about what a nice place it was. We decided our last night on the way home would be spent at the Spyglass Inn. It was a wonderful decision. We were able to get a second floor room overlooking the ocean and cliffs. The room was a convenient walking distance to not only the Spyglass Restaurant, but others as well. The room was clean with very nice furnishings, and to make things even better, the cost was substantially less than what we had paid at some of the other places we stayed along the way, and they were no where near as nice. We were anxious to get home, and unfortunately, we didn't get to explore Pismo Beach, but I think this may end up being a future destination for us.

  • Jun 05, 2019 by Leah K.

    Beautiful place.. we checked in around 8:30 with Mitch at the front desk.  He was very helpful and pleasant to talk to. Our room was 1st floor ocean view and with a fireplace in the room,beds were very comfortable and room was very clean. In front of our room was one of three fire pits...very cool...if I could change one thing it would be to allow fire pit to stay on a little longer than 9 45...overall I will recommend  and come back!!

  • Jun 04, 2019 by Wendy C.

    Gorgeous hotel in Pismo. We stayed two nights for our wedding in the ocean view king with a fireplace. We loved our private patio and the oceanfront fire pit. The bathrobe was comfy and free WiFi too. Mitch at the front desk was welcoming and answered our questions. We're definitely coming back!

  • Jun 04, 2019 by Wendy S

    We stayed two nights in the ocean view king with a fireplace. It’s a beautiful property and Mitch at the front desk was a sweetheart. Rooms are lovely and clean and we really enjoyed our private patio and the oceanfront fire pit. The restaurant is good too. We will be back for sure!

  • Jun 03, 2019 by FreddieBt...

    Arrived about 2 pm and checked in. Room was ready. Very clean and spacious. Wonderful view on the second floor overlooking the ocean. Niece's wedding on the cliff also overlooking the ocean. Reception in the small banquet room at the restaurant. Overnight stay was excellent with fire pits on the cliff, beautiful landscaping and ocean views. Didn't hurt that the weather was bright, sunny and cool!

    We stayed in room 212 and as you can see by the picture we had a beautiful view of the ocean and the gardens from our balcony. The Spyglass staff are all very friendly and helpful. The beds are VERY comfortable and the rooms are very clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

  • May 31, 2019 by Joan McConnell

    Thank you for a wonderfully relaxing stay at the Spyglass Inn! The beds are so comfortable, the views are spectacular and the service is exceptional. We stayed in room 212 and the view was of the lovely gardens and the ocean beyond. Thank you.

    We stayed in a second floor ocean view room with a balcony. I highly recommend doing the same if you are going to want to take in the ocean views. The landscaping on the property is extremely well maintained. Looking across the property you will think you are in a Thomas Kincaid painting. We will stay here again.

    Das Spyglass Inn ist ein völlig unauffälliges Motel , das direkt an einer Ausfahrt des Highway 101 liegt. Sehr bescheiden auch der Bereich der Rezeption, wo man uns aber sehr nett empfangen hat und auch (obwohl wir eigentlich zu früh da waren) gleich unsere Zimmer zur Verfügung stellen konnte. Jeder, der sog. Ocean View Zimmer reserviert hat, wird begeistert sein, wenn er sein Zimmer betritt. Es ist nicht nur picobello sauber, sondern auch sehr geräumig - aber der Hit ist eine kleine Terrasse, von der aus der Blick über einen wundervoll gepflegten Garten mit Bänken und Grillplätzen und den Pazifik schweift. An der Kante der Küste verläuft ein Boardwalk, den man entlang gehen kann durch das Grundstück dieses Hotels sowie die Grundstücke zweier sich anschließenden Hotels, von dem aus eine Treppe hinunter zur Bucht führt. Das angeschlossene Restaurant des Spyglass Inn hat eine sehr schöne Terrasse, wo man sich gerne hinsetzt, um den Sonnenuntergang bei einem Drink zu genießen. Sie ist mit Glasscheiben vor Wind geschützt, was uns gelegen kam, da der Wind recht kräftig war. Das Personal ist sehr nett - sowohl im Motel, als auch im Restaurant, wo man täglich eine Happy Hour anbietet. Insgesamt ist das Motel unbedingt empfehlenswert!Gerne kommen wir hierher wieder!

    Beautiful location. Right on the wonderful coast of Pismo Beach. Fire pits and chairs available along the cliff to watch the sunset. Many rooms have a good view and are recently updated with good coffee in the room. Bed was very comfortable. Restaurant is very good and there is plenty of parking. We went to the bar before dinner to encounter a very rude bartender and local customers of the bar but, the other staff were wonderful.

  • May 19, 2019 by Relax2996...

    Beautiful room with lovely balcony overlooking the sea with a lovely fire pit in the garden. Definitely worth having one of these rooms. Restaurant and bar attached to the hotel was very good for food with very pleasant staff.

    My stay at spyglass inn was wonderful. But one thing stood out most the courtise of the housekeeping. On 5/11/19 I spoke to a housekeeper named Leticia she helped me out with all my question was very patient,friendly,and always had a smile when I came back to my room she had cleaned it so well I thought it was my first night there. Thank you Leticia I’ll be coming back to visit with this kind of courtesy

  • May 12, 2019 by Flyman31

    We had a very pleasant stay at the Spyglass. The staff ensured the room was clean and well stocked. The bed was very comfortable. The view of the ocean was fabulous. We couldn’t have asked for a more friendly and accommodating staff. We were always greeted with a smile and a hello. We definitely recommend the Spyglass.

  • May 08, 2019 by westernst...

    Make sure you get an ocean view. The first floor opens out to a lovely cliff walk. There are fire pits where you can meet fellow travelers. The rooms are nice and clean. Just south of hotel, you can pick up a great bottle of bubbly at Laetitia Winery off of 101 to toast the sunset. The restaurant is a bit old fashioned, but there are others to choose from.

  • May 08, 2019 by DD1976FD

    We enjoyed a week long stay in Pismo Beach and couldn’t have had better accommodations at the Spyglass Inn. The room was very clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The view of the ocean from our room was amazing and at night sitting by the fire pit and listening to the waves was so relaxing. You could even have s’mores by the fire. I thoroughly enjoyed walking along the beautifully landscaped pathway next to the ocean. The staff at the Spyglass were the best; very helpful and friendly. The next time I visit the central coast I’ll be booking at the Spyglass.

  • May 07, 2019 by pamdrober...

    The rooms are nice & clean. It was well stocked with quality bath amenities. We had a ground floor oceanfront room. The view was spectacular, but ground floor was BAD! No soundproofing whatsoever. You could hear everything from rooms above. The ceiling actually vibrated from any movement. Grab an upper floor unit & enjoy!

  • May 06, 2019 by txem75

    Autant vous le dire tout de suite nous n'avons passé qu'une seule nuit dans cet établissement histoire de faire un halte en sortant de la route de Big Sur. Autant le faire à Morro Bay (où il y a au moins les lions de mer à voir) qu'ici puisque Pismo Beach est une station balnéaire sans aucun intérêt. Le Motel est juste à côté de l'autoroute dont on entend le passage de voitures sans arrêt. Côté bord de mer le motel est sur la falaise et sans accès à la plage. La piscine est en plein milieu du parking et ca n'incite pas vraiment à y faire un plongeon. Au la Réception l'accueil est pro mais attention à vos ustensiles électriques parce qu'ils n'ont pas d'adaptateur à vous prêter donc pour recharger votre téléphone portable ou votre brosse à dents électrique ça devient compliqué! Point positif tout de même est le restaurant de l'hôtel avec de bonnes burgers pas chères. Les chambres ont une déco vieillotte mais les salles de bains ont étés refaites récemment. Etat de propreté correct. Il n'y a pas d'ascenseur donc si vous êtes logés à l'étage et vous avez de grosses valises autant de les laisser dans le coffre de la voiture.

  • May 06, 2019 by Ron K.

    Very clean hotel with great views BUT do not allow hotel to put you in 1st floor room.  You can hear EVERY footstep above We spent 3 nights this past weekend and got very little sleep due to herd of buffaloes above us.

  • May 01, 2019 by Mary Catherine K.

    Beautiful spot right on the beach! A little overpriced but I did book a little last minute. The room was good, nothing exceptional, but the location and amenities were above and beyond what we expected and seemed much better than the other options in the area. They had s'mores available for purchase and nice fire pits with a water view. The little restaurant they have had good food, very reasonably priced, and had an amazing view of the sunset.

  • Apr 30, 2019 by Inspire66...

    Excellent service from all staff members. Clean, comfortable room with lovely view. Beach accessible with some other local sights within walking distance. Pleasantly surprised by how we enjoyed this hotel. We will be back!

  • Apr 29, 2019 by Horsecoup...

    I loved spyglass inn. The room with 2 queen beds was so comfortable and I loved the view of the ocean. It was so calming and soothing for me. I don’t sleep well and I don’t relax to well either. I loved the restaurant next door. Very good food and service was very friendly and helpful. The color of the room was relaxing in the hotel and I love the robs there. I wanted to buy one but they were all out. I was bummed over that but they have a nice pool there even though I didn’t swim there. I would do go back again. I also love the s’mores and the fire pit u can sit near and injoy it while eating mores over the fire and listen to the ocean. It was cloudy but then again it gets that way between spring and summer. Love, love, love it!

  • Apr 28, 2019 by Mary P

    The room was a bit pricey so I expected more than what we got. We were in the section directly behind the lobby. The room was on the small side as was the bathroom. It was clean so we were happy about that. The door didn't close correctly so there was a strip of light coming through all night. The cool air also came through and the people next to us were standing outside and we could hear them as if they were in the room with us! I guess if you have the money, upgrading to the ocean view would be nice.

  • Apr 27, 2019 by Brenda Mcwilliams

    View of ocean and landscape from room was beautiful! Balcony was so nice and bed was most comfortable I have ever had!! Big screen TV was great! Cooking Smores over fire was fun!

  • Apr 11, 2019 by Amar Bhagwat

    Room views were great !! hotel staff very friendly. Only problem is - none of the rooms have air-conditioning, on warm/hot days the room does not cool down. Had a tough time sleeping, especially the kids. This is even with the ocean facing room and room balcony door open all evening/night.

  • Apr 11, 2019 by Lookingfo...

    I regret so much that i did not initially book an ocean view room. I asked to upgrade when we checked-in, but they were fully occupied. We ate breakfast at the hotel restaurant and had a seat by the window overlooking the ocean....spectacular! The food and service was very good, too. You can eat on the veranda, but they had not yet dried off the dew from the tables and chairs, so we opted to eat inside. After breakfast, we went outside, turned on one of the fire pits, and enjoyed our cup of to-go coffee overlooking the water. What a wonderful beginning to our day. Our room was comfortable with all the expected amenities. Coffee is available in the office 24-hours, which we appreciate. The staff is friendly and helpful with directions. Book a room with the view...just do it!

  • Apr 09, 2019 by christoph...

    We checked in April 3 and stayed until April 5, 2019. We arrived early to beat LA traffic. I checked in early and was told they would try to get us a room as soon as they could. I left expecting to wait several hours. I was surprised to not only get the room within the hour but to have an ocean view as well. The room was large and comfortable. I liked the bed and to sit out on the balcony to enjoy the view. Staff was very nice and both my wife and I decided that we would return and stay at this beach. Excellent hotel and I highly recommend anyone going to Pismo Beach to stay at this fine establishment.

  • Apr 09, 2019 by asukantji...

    Chambre spacieuse, salle de bain également, literie au top. Personnel sympa. Eau, café et deca à disposition à la réception. Pas eu le temps de tester la piscine mais elle avait l air propre et elle est chauffée.

  • Apr 05, 2019 by Laura Mendrin

    A wonderful place to stay! Nice rooms, ocean views from most. Great restaurant on site! Love the fire pits on ocean front!

  • Apr 01, 2019 by Sandra Ortega

    I had a great experience at the Spyglass Inn. My boyfriend brought me to Pismo for my birthday and I couldn't have asked for a more fitting place to stay. The room was quite cozy with a lovely view of the coastline. The staff was amazing. They had a lovely floral arrangement with a crisp bottle of champagne and glasses set beautifully in the room awaiting our arrival. We toasted on the balcony and took in the scene. The walk along the coastline from the hotel was breathtaking. It was perfect!

  • Mar 29, 2019 by Jobie T.

    We booked online, based on the beautiful pictures. The description of the hotel made it sound like it was on the beach with access to the beach. There was no beach access, in fact we could not even hear the ocean over the freeway noise. Our view was the backside of another hotel. The room was small and the carpet was stained. Will not choose this place on our next trip.

  • Mar 25, 2019 by Liza P.

    YAS! I loved this place. The room was spacious,  the beds were insanely comfortable,  and it was spotless throughout. The bathroom was really nice, too. The night before,  I slept on a horrible bed,  and this bed healed me.  I sunk in,  it was so cushy. I'm going to be thinking about this bed for a long time. They have a heated pool and hot tub,  and fire puts in the back that go until 10 PM. They also have s'more kits at the front desk that you can use at the fire pits. And cookies! We upgraded to a balcony room and had a view of the ocean. It was such a nice stay.  I highly recommend and would definitely stay here again.

  • Mar 22, 2019 by Belle D.

    This was our first stay in this hotel, but definitely won't be our last! My family truly enjoyed our oceanview room with the balcony. The sunsets here were so amazing & the fire pits & s'mores were a hit with the kiddos.  The room & the hotel grounds were clean & well kept. We can't wait to come back again!

  • Mar 21, 2019 by H. J.

    This stay here was so relaxing. I had a great time. We got an ocean view room. Upon check in the lady at the front was very nice. The room is so close to the ocean that we slept with the sliding glass door open all night so that we could hear the waves crashing. There are just a few things that I'd like to tell others about... 1. The walls here are thin. We could hear all of our neighbors conversations. That's not anyone's fault but it is worth mentioning if you like quiet. 2. The rooms and furniture is a little old and in need of some upgrading. BUT everything was very clean. By no means do I mean it was dirty. That was not the case. 3. There are fire pits outside near the beach and I don't think there is a curfew for noise. There were people outside playing Dr. Dre until past 11pm last night. So keep that in mind. 4. They say that there is no smoking on the property but one lady kept smoking near the fire pit at night. How do I know, because every time she smoked I could smell it in our room. This is the only reason I took a star away. Hotel management should have said something to her. All in all it was a very nice room for the price that we paid. I would come back again in a heartbeat.

  • Mar 20, 2019 by Lissabeck...

    We had a wonderful evening in one of their ocean front rooms! I was visiting my family from Arizona. ( I’m from here but recently relocated to AZ) my mom and sisters surprised us three girls with a night at this hotel with no kids!! We enjoyed listening to the ocean and rain while relaxing in the comfy bed, fireplace and a good movie! It was a much needed relaxing night in with my sisters. Thank you!

  • Mar 20, 2019 by Ashley M.

    My sisters and I had an absolutely fabulous staycation at Spyglass last night, none of us wanted to go back to our regular lives this morning! Starting right at check-in the staff was super friendly and helpful (side-note- they have S'MORE kits you can purchase for their fire-pits in the back, which offers the most gorgeous ocean view, so this is a must!) and our room was incredible, too. We literally opened our sliding door to a private terrace, which was maybe 100 ft from the fire pits and an insane front-row seat view to the ocean (make sure you're there for the sunset!!) Our king bed was super comfy (there was a nice couch that doubles as a pull-out bed, too), and the fireplace underneath the big-screen tv was the perfect cozy touch for our sisters-night-in. It also rained last night, which made everything feel that much more magical, so we kept our sliding door open (screen closed) and watched/listened to the rain all night. Thank you, Spyglass, for an incredible night with my sisters, we'll absolutely be back again!!

  • Mar 19, 2019 by mlb50

    The rooms were clean and updated. Nothing fancy, but if the bathrooms are spotless, that works for me! Cute place. Small reception but they were super nice, free cookies and coffee when we checked in and free coffee when we checked out. We grabbed a last minute/discounted room from an app, so got a room away from the beach. But the next morning we walked around before we left, and the rooms facing the beach had great views. Another nice touch is they have fire pits, with big chairs facing the ocean on a little strip. They are gas, you just turn them on. They also sell "Smores" bundles at the front desk. Would be cute to do if you were there with kids or had time. The weather wasn't great the nite we were there, so we didn't use them. It is super close to St Luis Obispo. We drove to SLO for dinner and there are tons of cute shops and restaurants there. It was like a 10 minute drive to get there.

    We stayed here last week and it was the worst experience ever. First off we came here for my sons 3rd Birthday. Huge mistake. When we got into town our car started making a noise so we had to leave it at a shop in Grover Beach and spend three days stuck at the hotel. The sink in our room sprayed out of the side. There was no microwave in the room which is a huge inconvenience. The refrigerator didnt keep things cold and there was trash from McDonalds under the bed when we checked in. The rooms were not nearly as nice as the other hotels in that area. After we left to add insult to injury we found out this hotel charged us $250 for "smoking in the room". Which DID NOT happen. We had children in the room. No one ever smoked in that room. Management refused to talk to me about it, obviously because they know they were wrong. Shame on them for stealing from customers. The owner replied to this review on another site and clearly had not read the review or more than likely didn't care. Just states that they have a no smoking in the room policy. The same as ALL other hotels. Every time we stay somewhere we sign the same thing. This is the only hotel that is dishonest about it. It NEVER happened and they know it. It's just a scam.

  • Mar 09, 2019 by Connie C

    We were in Pismo Beach for my aunts surprise 90th birthday and booked a room at the Spyglass Inn. Debbie at the front desk was very warm, friendly, and accommodating. We had a lovely view room on the 3rd floor. It was very quiet and comfortable. I wish we were able to stay longer!

  • Mar 05, 2019 by Brittanie Scofield

    Our stay at the Spyglass Inn was wonderful, the rooms are nicely updated and very clean. We had a beautiful view of the ocean from our king room with the fire pits right outside. The fireplace in the room is a great touch and very easy to turn on with the thermostat. The staff was very friendly and professional and the hotel is conveniently attached to the Spyglass restaurant. We had some amazing Lobster and Shrimp Macaroni one night and came back for breakfast a couple days later and loved that as well.

  • Mar 05, 2019 by Kathryn H

    My husband and I started coming here years ago. I’d put my pictures on Facebook and friends would ask us if they could go with us. Now we have 6 couples that go with us and everyone loves it. We always get a Ocean view (worth the extra money). Within walking distance there is a Italian market that great coffee and pastries, wine and sandwiches. Take a warm coat to sit out by the warming pits. If your there on a Thursday night go to San Luis Obispo’s farmers market to walk around, it starts at 6 pm.

    We stayed here last week and it was the worst experience ever. First off we came here for my sons 3rd Birthday. Huge mistake. When we got into town our car started making a noise so we had to leave it at a shop in Grover Beach and spend three days stuck at the hotel. The sink in our room sprayed out of the side. There was no microwave in the room which is a huge inconvenience. The refrigerator didnt keep things cold and there was trash from McDonalds under the bed when we checked in. The third day we were there the maid who came to clean our room was extremely rude.  My husband and I politely left the room so she could clean however on our way out she looked at us and shook her head. My husband is Hispanic and I'm white.  We both felt like she was being very racist and judgmental.  Our last morning there before check out my toddler got into the kuerig pods and got coffee on the carpet. I tried to clean up the best I could but it was difficult with no vacuum. After we left to add insult to injury we found out this hotel charged us $250 for "smoking in the room".  Which DID NOT happen.  We had children in the room.  No one ever smoked in that room.  My husband occasionally smokes in the evening with a beer. He did the polite thing and walked all the way across the street to smoke so he wouldn't bother anyone. He put his butts out in his beer can and threw it away in the room bc there was no trash can outside our room. He made a point to tie the cans up in a bag as well. So again. No smoking in the room. The house keeping obviously had a prejudice point of view against us and dug thru our trash so they could charge us more money. It would have been very obvious no one had smoked in the room because the smell would be unbearable. I also feel like maybe they were trying to get back at us for the mess with the coffee pods. We go to Pismo all the time and have stayed at most of the hotels there. Not one single hotel has EVER charged us for "smoking" in the room even when my husband threw his butts away in the trash just like at this hotel. I called twice for the manager but she won't talk to me. They must be struggling for money so they are using this as an excuse to steal from us. We spent $400 fixing our car and this on top of the cost of their over priced rooms made this the worst vacation ever.

  • Feb 25, 2019 by Jackie Oates

    A friend recommended this inn. We had a beachfront, 1st floor king bed with fireplace room. The bed faced the ocean. Beautiful! The room and bathroom were very clean. Great staff too. From the recent rain earlier in the week, there was a very small mud slide from the planters in front of our room. We called the front desk and they sent someone immediately to clean up the sidewalk. We will definately stay here again.

  • Feb 23, 2019 by 169jacque...

    A friend recommended this inn. I brought my husband for the weekend for his birthday. We got the beach front 1st floor with fireplace room. The bed faces the view. Beautiful! Very clean room and bathroom. I would have rated a 5 except the fireplace is controlled by the thermostat so if you are a light napper you can hear it click on and off over and over. We will definitely stay here again, but forego the fireplace. And probably get an upstairs ocean front room to avoid noisy foot traffic the the room above us.

  • Feb 19, 2019 by adleec

    Very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. For the price, we weren't sure how comfortable it would be but we loved our room. The bed was awesome - very big and really comfortable. The bathroom looked brand new and the furniture was in great shape. They upgraded us at check in so we got a partial sea view and it was awesome. Pool is perfectly heated, spa is great. Right on the beach, close access to the freeway, but the rooms are soundproof so you can't hear any traffic. Across the street from a wonderful deli and within 2 min drive to downtown Pismo. Would definitely stay here again.

  • Feb 12, 2019 by theresah6...

    The room was especially clean, the location perfect, and the staff at both hotel and restaurant could not have been any nicer or professional! I will stay here on my next California adventure. This place has wonderful waterfront views.

  • Feb 11, 2019 by Jason S.

    Booked a last minute stay here for one night on a app. Hotel front desk staff were great with getting me a partial ocean view which was a better room then I deserved for the discounted rate. Checked in just in time to see sunset over the ocean. Friendly staff, nice, clean and beautiful location.

  • Feb 08, 2019 by Jennifer W.

    Ok, Allison, you deserve an award! I've never had an experience be fixed so quickly and be hit out of the park. Rooms are amazing, amenities are amazing, view is amazing and we are enjoying our s'mores fireside with the waves rolling in the background.

  • Feb 05, 2019 by Patrice Swenson

    We were greeted by a wonderful staff at the front desk and stayed in an outstanding room on the lower level of the hotel with an ocean view. It was peaceful and beautiful, even in the rainy, cloud filled skies during our stay. The pool and hot tub were not busy, given the weather and we enjoyed the nicely heated pool! Absolutely great get-a-way!!

  • Feb 03, 2019 by corvette2...

    I had booked the Spyglass Inn as part of a California Coast trip. Unfortunately a power outage in another town and multiple road closures forced us to change plans at the last minute. I had booked Spyglass and understood they had a 48 hr, cancellation policy. I called about check-in time as a courtesy just to let them know we would not be able to make it and they volunteered to cancel our reservation, something I had not expected as they did not have to. Even though I did not spend the night I will certainly book them again if I have a chance because of this very gracious service. Most places would not have done this. Kudos to Spyglass Inn.

  • Jan 31, 2019 by Angie G.

    We finally reached Pismo Beach and made our way to The Spyglass Inn, our final stop on our trip.  We stayed here before and absolutely fell in love the the property and the beautiful views and knew we had to stay here again.  We had planned to go out for dinner that night but opted to stay in and order some pizza to eat while we watched the sunset from the patio of our room.  While sitting there enjoying the beautiful sunset and enjoying the wonderful company of each other we heard a quiet voice from the balcony above us and to the left.  Taking a moment to say hello to us was an older couple who was celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary.  She explained that it was their tradition to come there every year on their anniversary, stay in the same room that they did on their honeymoon and watch the sunset together.  There is plenty of parking and a restaurant on site we haven't tried as of yet.  The rooms are always clean and well maintained and you even get a complimentary cookie when you check in.   Enjoy a nice walk along the cliffs after you check in, it's absolutely beautiful!

  • Jan 31, 2019 by Stephanie F.

    We stayed here twice within ten days, as a pit stop for our road trip between NorCal and SoCal (why does it feel so weird to type that... I've been away from California for too long!). We enjoyed our first stay so much we decided to stay again on our way back. We were upgraded to oceanfront the first stay, which had a fireplace thermostat and a patio. The fireplace was super nice and romantic, but may be dangerous for smaller kids without monitoring. We had one king size bed and it was THE MOST COMFORTABLE BED I've ever slept in. No exaggeration. My two kids fell asleep in what feels like record time. My husband (who wasn't with us) suggested that I take the comforter, the star of the most cozy sleep I've ever experienced, and have them charge it on our card. Although I do think he was joking and no I did not take the comforter with me, as tempting as it was. We didn't get to fully enjoy the fire pits outside the first time, and since my kids knew they sold a s'mores kit at the lobby we really wanted to try that so we booked our second stay on our way back home. We got upgraded AGAIN (which makes me wonder, but it's a nice gesture regardless) and we chose second floor balcony this time. The room was facing the pool, and much to my disappointment they didn't use the same comforter as the one from our first stay. The bed WAS still nice, just not as instantaneous knock-out for my kids. We purchased the s'mores kit and enjoyed the fire pit while the sun set in the evening. What a neat idea to sell a s'mores kit (it had four sticks, ten marshmallows, two bars of chocolate, and a bag of Graham crackers for $10). This is not a five-star hotel, but a very nice stay in Pismo Beach. Having stayed in two rooms, I would definitely recommend booking oceanfront with the fireplace.

  • Jan 30, 2019 by pinkerton...

    This was just a wonderful place to stay. It was a spontaneous stop at dusk after traveling through Big Sur. We were exhausted and got lucky there was a vacancy. The front desk personnel were so professional and accommodating.The room was magnificent, clean, big and the beds were very comfortable with a small patio to relax. The restaurant was superb and had an outdoor patio that was beautiful with plenty of tables. I would definitely stay here again!! Pismo Beach is definitely a cute little town to visit along the coast if you have a chance.

  • Jan 26, 2019 by Thomas Treshler

    I have come here many times and each time I come is still at wonderful experience. The Ambiance is great the view of the ocean is fantastic while you're eating lunch, dinner. All a great experience.

  • Jan 26, 2019 by Roger R.

    Last night my wife and I dined with three other couples at the restaurant.  We have eaten here before with groups and everything was OK.  However, this time the service was poor (20 minute wait for an order of draft beer, though the restaurant was not crowded; bread baskets brought after those ordering salads or soups had finished that course; people served ahead of us who were seated later than our group).  My wife and I each ordered the Kobe beef burger.  She ordered it medium, and I ordered it medium rare.  Both arrived cooked to death and tough, which is quite difficult to achieve with hamburger.  If that was Kobe beef it was only because the steer which gave its life for the meat was named Kobe.

  • Jan 25, 2019 by TuffyFluf...

    The room was beautiful looking out to the ocean. It has a fireplace in the room. The bed was nice. The room was very clean. The restaurant for dinner had plenty choice and is wonderfully cooked. The view from the restaurant affords wonderful sunsets.

  • Jan 25, 2019 by Lilly R.

    I wanted to stay here since a long time ago and finally we made it! I was very in shock that when we arrived to the hotel all the entire facility looked so old and not really inviting. Our entrance to the Lobby was lovely, very welcoming staff, warm cookies and coffee, and when we step in to our room I was very pleased with the comfort of the beds, and the decor. We had a decent night, but the AC is tooo loud when is on, and for some reason, maybe because is close by the ocean the whole furnitures resound over and over. A little bit pricey for what we get. Overall a good hotel to stay in Pismo.

  • Jan 21, 2019 by jon343432...

    Often times on extended business trips you're forced to stay in typical cookie cutter hotels. It may not be a secret anymore after this post, but I love staying at my "go-to" place, Spyglass Inn. With great views and accommodations in the central coast, it's perfect for any trip. Best part is, they are doing their best to incorporate the modern feel but updating rooms, both interior and exterior. See you next time Spyglass Inn! One suggestion for business trip visitors, access to a gym or partnership with local gyms would be great =D.

  • Jan 21, 2019 by Sunshine0...

    The ladies at the front desk were so nice and accommodating. Our room was nice right on the ocean and everything was clean! The beds were comfortable as well and the room was big. Was great! Will come back for sure.

    Went to the restaurant for business. The food was great! Staff and kitchen was accommodating and friendly. Lovely view of the ocean.

    Os aspecto do hotel não é muito bom, mas o quarto é recém reformado. Não transmite segurança e não dá boa impressão à chegada pq a porta dos quartos está direto no estacionamento. O quarto tem um bom espaço e os banheiros são novos. Tem frente para o mar mas sem acesso à ele.Fiquei apenas 1 noite. O funcionário responsável pelo photoshop está de parabéns.

    Stayed two nights in an ocean view with fireplace. Loved being able to walk out the sliding glass door and walking along the patch above the ocean. It was the only hotel that had fire pits where you could sit and enjoy the evening outside. It is close proximity to Arroyo Grande, Avila and San Luis Obispo, all of which we traveled to while staying there. Highly recommend and plan to come back.

    Spyglass has to be one of my favorite spots to visit. It’s one-stop shopping! You can get an amazing view from the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean, a room with a fireplace and a patio, as well as stepping stones that lead to warm outdoor firepits on the paseo. The beds are comfy, the bathrooms are tidy, and the water pressure will not disappoint. In the main lobby, you’ll find delicious food, a warm and friendly environment, and a bartender that would love to make you a craft cocktail, pour you an ice-cold beer, or recommend a wine. Try this one. Two thumbs up!

    We had a wonderful experience at the Spyglass Inn. We had been staying in Big Sur for the previous 2 nights and wanted a hotel by the beach. All the reviews say to stay in SLO but we decided on Pismo Beach and we are so happy we did. The hotel was perfect, we had a beach front room that walked out onto the grounds that had fire pits that were easy to use and great views of the water. There is a walkway that leads to the beach though you cant walk there at night. The room was perfect, the bed was so comfortable esp after 2 nights in a cabin. We opted to not try the breakfast special at the restaurant as there were a ton of other food options that you can walk to on the walkway.

    This hotel is a gem! Rooms are nice and very clean. The grounds are beautiful. Love the firepits with an ocean view. The restaurant had wonderful service (we ate breakfast there both days). Front desk people were super helpful, informative, accommodating...love the afternoon cookies! We will definitely be back.

  • Jan 11, 2019 by wendycl20...

    Our family of 4 stayed in an ocean view room for 2 nights. The sunset views on our deck were phenomenal. We also greatly enjoyed the beautiful gardens and gas fire pits. The pool was warm, even on chilly December evenings. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Jan 08, 2019 by mikedeehl

    My wife and I checked in toward the end of December with standard room accommodations. Upon checking in we were shocked to hear that we would be staying at an oceanfront room with a fireplace. The generous staff gave us a complimentary upgrade to one of the most beautiful rooms I've stayed in. Imagine waking up to views of the ocean from atop the bluffs as waves crash on the rocks below. The walkways and fire pits that lined the coast were amazing and added to the ambiance of this quaint but impressive inn. Amazing value, regardless of the upgrade (although easily worth paying for an upgrade based on quality of room) as the location is to die for.

  • Jan 04, 2019 by familytra...

    When I reserved the room, I had specifically asked for ocean view after looking at the property pictures on the internet, maps and google earth. I was charged $220+ each night and was told it is a ocean view room. Upon check in, found that it was not what I was told. It was only a partial view. The balcony was angled due to the adjoining restaurant. The deck of the restaurant was right in front of the balcony blocking most of the view. Had to see the customers eating and the noise of the dishes and music. The door to the balcu was not a wide sliding door like the other ocean view rooms. It was a smaller double pane door. The whole idea of sitting in the room behind the balcony door and enjoying the view was completely shattered. Upon complaining, they did reduce the rate to $175 but it was way too expensive for the room and the no view. I might as well book a garden view or pool view at a cheaper rate. Really got the feeling of being cheated. Never stay in room numbers 109 and 110. Not worth the money.

  • Dec 31, 2018 by JoAnn W.

    I'm reviewing the restaurant only NOT the hotel Different owners . Lots of very drunk people and it's early. Fair service Give them a break. They are busy. Even so the place smells like stale fish. Loud place. Good luck getting served here I didn't eat dinner. I won't go here for breakfast.

  • Dec 30, 2018 by SFIrish69

    Location is great. Easy freeway access and oceanfront. Not all rooms are ocean front so don’t be disappointed like we were. It’s not “remodeled” per se, more like refreshed. We stayed here for a large family trip. Base camp was at the resort next door which is outstanding. Maid service was great. Beds were soft, backache soft, and rooms are dark. The beach in front of the hotel is accessible by 90 stairs! Because we had old ones and little ones we had to find a better beach spot...Pismo. Check in staff was that super friendly over super annoyed kind of thing. All in all it’s fine. I’d stay here again but 5 nights on these beds is a little rough.

  • Dec 25, 2018 by Josh Blair

    The service was very strange and awkward and not to mention that the waitress had to ask how my dad wanted his eggs cooked 3 times. They made it seem like it was an issue to sit outside under the heaters. My wife ordered sirloin and eggs and she's making a face when she was eating her steak so I tried it and it was absolutely horrible and I had to tell him to take it back and bring her what I had which was a chicken fried steak. That was actually very good. I would like to know why they call it chicken fried steak when it's actually not chicken. Overall we were decided to go there it was a lackluster experience and we will not be craving to go there again for probably ever know I'm sure we'll go back one day

  • Dec 17, 2018 by Sammy M.

    This is a lovely hotel on the beach.  The location and views are amazing.  Even if you're not facing the ocean it's a quick few steps to see the beach from several decks.  It'd be great if they upgraded to a real coffee bar as opposed to the $4 cup of regular coffee.  The Spyglass would have a full 5 Star review from me had they not been so ungracious about having a service dog.  Unfortunately, at the time we left they were asking for documents to be signed that were inappropriate.  Even after they admitted the room was free of any and all evidence of a Service Dog being there, and the obvious need for said Service Animal being with me.

  • Dec 16, 2018 by Marc Gaits

    Nice place, just a little older for kids. We got complaint for our 5 yr old from the downstairs room at 8:22pm. Asides the place is at an awesome location.

  • Dec 11, 2018 by Tshaka Armstrong

    Did this as an anniversary three day getaway with my wife and was NOT disappointed! The grounds are beautiful, service was great, and the view outstanding. We will be back!

  • Dec 08, 2018 by Natalie F.

    I came here last year around the same time because I loved the view the rooms were so clean & nice. So I decided to book with you again this year & I was nothing but disappointment carpet was disgusting stains all over, the foot rest is dirty. I called lobby to ask about it & they said we can have someone come and clean it up, it should of been done before anyone checked in, the pictures online look amazing, I ended up changing rooms, & the next room where kids were jumping on the bed for hours so me and my boyfriend couldn't even sleep . I paid good money to stay here we even checked out early because to me it was a waste if money

  • Nov 28, 2018 by Wander111...

    Love the view and relaxing on the balcony. Grounds are beautiful and beautifully maintained. Rooms are nice with extremely comfortable beds. Staff is all very nice and helpful including cleaning crew. A couple minor things needed fixing which I reported to front desk. I have stayed here with my daughter or husband here at least 6 times in past 3 years. Room rates are reasonable as well. Restaurant is very convenient and outdoor seating a plus. Good food. Have booked for January with 40% discount from Cyber special to include a long time friend from the Midwest (my original home) and myself. I live in the Bay area and truly enjoy the getaway to your facility. Daughter and I love going to the tide pools. Do you have a frequent devoted visitor price? Would be great! Barb Fouts

  • Nov 26, 2018 by Jennifer W.

    We found the fabulous gem that is the Spyglass Inn traveling home from the Thanksgiving Holiday and were nothing short of delighted with our experience!!  To start, we checked in at about 8:30 pm very tired and we're greeted by an easy going gregarious and accommodating gentleman at the front desk. I think the coolest part of all was that we used a Black Friday discount being offered on their website and were directed to arguably one of the most luxurious rooms (as opposed to whatever bargain room they could have fit us in). We were placed in a second floor ocean front room where we enjoyed an open sliding glass door and the sound of waves crashing and cool sea breeze all night. Linens were white, room immaculate and curated in updated ocean inspired decor. Thank you so much for providing us with the best end to our vacation we could have dreamed of, we'll be back!!

  • Nov 26, 2018 by Coastal39...

    We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Spyglass Inn. The room with fireplace was so inviting, roomy and comfortable. We also enjoyed the beautiful ocean view from our patio and the fire pit! The staff was extremely friendly! We can't wait to come back here again!

  • Nov 25, 2018 by jason s

    Quick stay, came in late, front desk was very friendly and even gave us an upgraded room as they weren’t full. Room had a little bit of smell to it, not too bad. Carpet was a little stained, again not too bad. Bed was very comfortable and room was nice. Would definitely stay there again.

  • Nov 24, 2018 by 978donc

    Love this hotel! Disappointed that our room was not made up the second day and no fresh towels. Can’t beat the location and the views. Total cost for 2 nights was a bit much ($608) and better service would have been nice.

  • Nov 23, 2018 by pcaraska

    We enjoyed our stay. The room was clean, but a little stuffy. No ventilation fan to move the air. Our room had a shower for the disabled. Very spacious, but the wall-mounted shower head would not turn on. The handheld one did. We enjoyed our breakfast in the restaurant the next morning. The food was delicious and the server was excellent - very kind and accommodating.

  • Nov 23, 2018 by Sunshine7...

    Great staff and location. Very surprised they wanted you to BUY wine glasses and even a corkscrew.Great wine store next door...good luck getting wine open and bring your own glasses.Staffers was helpful and nice beaches within 5 minute drive

  • Nov 21, 2018 by SoCalKare...

    We had a great stay. Would recommend staying in a water view unit, as the ones closer to the road can be a bit noisy. The rooms were basic, but the beds were really comfortable, and well-appointed with plenty of toiletries, etc. The service was great, and nice to be welcomed with cookies.The fire pits with the s’mores kits was such a nice surprise! Definitely a good value!

  • Nov 21, 2018 by Voyage454...

    Downstairs rooms that face the ocean are very nice, however any movement from occupants in the room directly above is not filtered enough due to creaky floors/inadequate insulation. Unfortunately we cannot always predict what type of person who will occupy the room directly above ours. In this case the gentleman above our room was very active until well into the early morning hours.

  • Nov 21, 2018 by Sightsee4...

    What a beautiful site...We have come here for the last five years. The new remodeled rooms are gorgeous and we enjoyed sitting around the campfire in the late afternoon. Such a great destination with beautiful views of the ocean. Even the coffee in the office was wonderful.

  • Nov 21, 2018 by johndV916...

    My stay was a walk-in because of a change of plans. I had been aware of this hotel from years of traveling on 101 but never stayed there. It was a wonderful one night stay. The walk down to the beach was very nice. Having dinner on the outside deck at sunset was refreshing. It was a nice unexpected reward for a change in plans.

  • Nov 21, 2018 by cheboludo

    We loved our time at the Spyglass Inn! Great location with friendly service and the rooms were clean and the pool was heated! The kids had a great time playing in the pool, playing on the ocean front grass, checking out the nearby tidepools, and making smores at the fire pits. We'll be back!

  • Nov 20, 2018 by jrube

    We have been coming here every year the past few years in November and have never been disappointed. Spyglass is right on the ocean in a great area with easy access to the entire SLO, 5 Cities area. Rooms are large, clean, comfortable beds with a great view of the ocean. Firepits offer a great spot to meet your neighbors. We'll be back for sure.

  • Nov 19, 2018 by Traveler6...

    We absolutely loved our room and view. The room was so clean!! The staff was so nice and at night while in the hot tub staff came out and put more towels out for the guests. It was really an amazing weekend away. We couldn’t have asked for a cozier/better room. The bed was also super comfortable and it felt so clean.

  • Nov 19, 2018 by Loud_Pug

    The location is great. We enjoyed the pool, which despite being small was heated to a pleasant temperature. The building are somewhat old. The owners have renovated with new carpets, paint, and fixtures in an attempt to make the facilities more modern. That said, the beds were soft/sagging and the walls are on the thinner side (allowing a crying baby in the room next door to wake us at 5:20 am). The front desk staff were very friendly. We enjoyed the campfires and s’more kits. The hotel restaurant has a nice view. However, the food let something to be desired. The price of a cup of coffee was 3.50....coffee at the front desk is free. This price for coffee exceeds the price I pay for a large coffee of superior coffee at Pete’s coffee.

  • Nov 19, 2018 by cowalla

    When I arrived my room was upgraded to a suite with an ocean view and a fireplace. The room was beautiful comfortable and quiet. After being evacuated from the fire in Southern Cal, it was such an extra treat to have the wonderful room upgrade so I could rest, breathe and get my work done!

  • Nov 17, 2018 by bikegirl1...

    So glad we chose Spyglass Inn! It's secluded on the bluffs north of Pismo Beach, with a tiny neighborhood on one side and two hotels on the other (Dolphin Bay, The Cliffs). We arrived after dark and so we did not see the SPECTACULAR VIEW we had from our second floor ocean front room until the morning. We had an entire unobstructed view of the ocean. It was gorgeous! The room was big, decorated in blues, grays and off white. The bathroom was large and pretty. Can't comment on the pool because we didn't even go over and take a look, we were so enthralled with the view from our balcony! There is a walkway in front of the hotel that extends past the other hotels, ending in steps down to the beach. There are also three ocean-front gas firepits with seating, and the restaurant has outdoor ocean-front seating (with heaters). The ocean front landscaping is beautiful. Overall, we were really happy to stay here, away from the busy downtown and without many hotels nearby--the site was tranquil and soothing. We would definitely stay again! (PS--breakfast for hotel guests is $7, but only applies to a basic eggs/meat/pancakes, which is fine, but the pancakes were tasteless. Internet/parking are free. Oh yeah--cookies in the lobby).

  • Nov 17, 2018 by Coastal27...

    I really enjoyed the location and amenities. The only downside was the door to the adjoining room provides zero insulation, So, I could hear every word of my neighbors conversations and they were early risers and I wasn't.

  • Nov 16, 2018 by Paradise5...

    We were in the hussle and bustle of LA. My wifey and I needed a 24 hour romantic get away before the madness of the upcoming holidays. We arrived late and upon arrival were kindly offered a complimentary upgrade is to an ocean view room! We had a beautiful stay and amazing breakfast at the property restaurant. After we were able to squeeze in a trip to the local hot springs. Thank you SkyView for being a part of our 24 hour romantic getaway!! Daniel & Nicole Serfaty

  • Nov 13, 2018 by Maps43615...

    I can not see why the breakfast discount dose not cover the complete breakfast menu. The pancakes are hard to swallow. The omelets are about the same price as the pancakes and eggs. If you don't care for meat you can get a vege omelet.

  • Nov 13, 2018 by tlouliret...

    Courteous staff clean great bed great restaurant good food coffee drinks a bit weak but tasty good service easy access to venue next door great ocean view from walkway, relaxed atmosphere easy checkout

    My husband and I had a really great experience staying here. The rooms are so cute and clean. I am 5.5 months pregnant so I need everything to be perfect when it comes to sleeping..I felt 100% fabulous waking up in the morning, a good night sleep for me is always a win.

  • Nov 12, 2018 by Cruiser56...

    Great view, cozy rooms, we loved the fireplace in the room. Thee room was very clean. Close enough to town we could ride our bikes there. Loved the trails down to the beach from the hotel. They also have firepits outside to sit and watch the sunset.

  • Nov 12, 2018 by Meander36...

    Spyglass Inn is the best value along this stretch of the central CA coast. Great location, view, on-site restaurant. Staff wonderfully friendly. Great Hwy 101 access. We were just there for a wedding in the area and will be back over the Thanksgiving weekend.

  • Nov 11, 2018 by Passenger...

    the room was very clean and the bed very comfortable. We love the ocean view room and so convenient to have the restaurant on site. The freeway is easy on easy off. The only bad thing that happened is we did not get any chocolate chip cookies.

    Eric!!!! You're the man!!!   This place is a hidden GEM!!  I took my family up to Pismo Beach from Santa Barbara to spend a night there.  Eric talked to me over the phone and simply accommodated my family and I extremely well!  Friendly staff!  Mesmerizing ocean views!!  Beautiful lounge areas with fire pits!  Panoramic ocean views!  Heated Pool!  Jacuzzi!  My 4 year old son is a fish and just loved swimming!  Wasn't overly crowded and the restaurants surrounding the hotel were damn good!  I will certainly come back and refer everyone to this place!!

    The sound of the ocean at night is soothing the sunset is magical and it feels as if we're the only ones there it's a beautiful sight to see I wish everybody could see this and feel this. We will definitely be back.

  • Nov 09, 2018 by 22shelley...

    The location was awesome. The room, however, did not have air conditioning, and we were in #206 right next to the Mechanical Room. Our room was very warm so we had to sleep with the sliding glass door open. Our room also had NO WAY TO LOCK THE SLIDING GLASS DOOR? We called the front desk and they sent maintenance up. He initially cut a piece of wood so that we could temporarily know the door was secure, and then he came back after we left and installed a locking mechanism on the top of the door.

  • Nov 09, 2018 by FederalEx...

    Really wonderful small inn, positioned with such amazing views of the Pacific. Easy check in as they text you the day of and help with anything you need. Great customer service. Our room was very clean, updated and slightly larger than most hotel rooms, with a fireplace and view of the bay and Pacific Ocean. You could sit in your bed and see the ocean and walk out to the nearby fire pit. This is NOT across the street from the ocean like some other hotels along the coast, this is right ON the cliffs. You can actually get to the sand, if you walk down the path two hotels down but there is not that much sand to sit on at high tide. Fun to walk down to it. We enjoyed sitting up on the bluff and watching the beautiful sunset with the fire pit. Rooms had all the luxuries of a 4 star but it's only 3 stars. It's an older motel but you don't feel it inside the room. Very comfortable bed, linens, towels and robe.Designer soaps and lotion. Mini fridge, Keurig coffee maker. Free wifi. Free parking. Restaurant next door that is good to get a bite with happy hour for good prices. Inn has good prices in the fall. We will be back!

  • Nov 07, 2018 by sharon c

    This is a wonderful place to stay especially if you get a room with a view! The grounds were neat and clean, I loved the fire pits overlooking the ocean. Watching the sunset with a glass of wine was very special.

  • Nov 06, 2018 by dtdhill

    We had an amazing weekend at the Spyglass Inn. Our ocean front room was breath taking. Whether sitting on the patio or lying in bed to watch the sun set was breath taking. From walks along the pathway to sitting at night at one of the fire pits. Just absolute relaxation!

  • Nov 05, 2018 by Culture66...

    The hotel is located in a great location. Near the Monarch grove and Pismo Pier. They have fire pits outside that you can gather round at night. Where we enjoyed our smores. The only problem we had was that the pillows were not very comfortable.

  • Nov 05, 2018 by KATHRYN E

    Location nice. Grounds(firepits) fantastic. Rooms- not fully renovated. Stained, frayed, worn out carpet and furniture. Deck uneven with 2 different surfaces.Building in disrepair, air conditioning unit ancient. View obstructed by restaurant umbrellas and walls.

  • Nov 05, 2018 by Coastal61...

    First off, the woman running the front desk yesterday 11/4/18, was awesome! She was helpful and provided great service. But as far as the rest of our experience, I was disappointed. Given the fact that the rates are comparable to neighboring hotels, these rooms should really be updated. We also had issues with noise from the room above ours that made napping and sleeping for our babies really hard. I complained and the man at the front desk (and this was at 12:00 am) simply said "well they just arrived and they're very tired so I'm sure they'll go to sleep soon." An hour later, at 1:00am, they finally went to bed! I also had a bad experience yesterday at the restaurant. There was one table open outside. Our party had 3 adults and 3 children, but I was told our group wasn't large enough to sit there. It was being reserved for "larger parties." Not a single person was waiting to be seated. We ended up eating at the Dolphin Bay next door. The staff was fantastic and our experience was very good there. I've stayed at the Spyglass over the years several times. It's my "go to" hotel. Not anymore. When you spend over $800 to stay somewhere for the weekend you expect something nice, special and positively memorable. We did not get that.

  • Nov 05, 2018 by Jet012834...

    GREAT! location; we were upgraded to 3rd floor ocean view. Restaurant views were also great! However, no air conditioning in room. I don't know if whole complex does not have air conditioning, our room definitely did not have air. Outside temps on this weekend was 88 and we would have been comfortable if room was air conditioned. Otherwise, the grounds were clean, fire pits abundant for all to share and the oceanfront view is 180 degrees gorgeous.

  • Nov 04, 2018 by Wander403...

    I wish you guys had a elevator for us older folks. Kind of hard to go up to the third floor with your suitcases. Oh also a mini microwave too would make this perfect place. Love the partial view. But an elevator would have made it a lot easier!

  • Nov 03, 2018 by Tour06620...

    The Wifey and I booked our room for the weekend at Spyglass. Aside from the long wait for check-in we were beyond pleased with everything about this hotel. We will be staying here for now on during our trips to Pismo.

  • Nov 02, 2018 by Explorati...

    A friend suggested that we stayed at the Spyglass Inn this place is what the decorator ordered from making the reservation directly to the front desk I knew it was going to be outstanding super friendly and professional they delivered beyond my expectations next time I’m in California will be back for a few days stay

  • Nov 01, 2018 by Vacation3...

    Excellent as always. The location is unparalleled, the service great, the views from the balcony rooms have a spectacular, unobstructed ocean view...that's why we come to Spyglass. Love the walks around the area from there also. Thank you.

  • Oct 31, 2018 by Maria F.

    Took my boyfriend for his belated birthday celebration to this nice little hotel situated right on Shell Beach. We had wonderful nights walking out on the path outside our room hearing the ocean. They have several fire pits that guests can sit around enjoying the warmth of the fire.  The king room we stayed in was clean and we were greeted with a nice bottle of champagne to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Though the room was a bit dated, it still had charm. The fireplace that we had in the room made our evenings very romantic. It was very nice to fall asleep with the crackling of the fire and to wake up to it in the wee mornings.  It made for a very nice getaway for us.

  • Oct 31, 2018 by Julian M

    We had a downstairs ocean-front room, and we really enjoyed our stay here. The room was spacious and modern. Our only drawback is you definitely can hear footsteps from the above floor. Next time, we'll upgrade to the second level.

  • Oct 31, 2018 by Global578...

    The room and location and service for the room was wonderful. The restaurant was horrible. The "happy hour" was not available where we were seated, and we were not informed of this. The chef refused to make accommodations for our order and the food was badly prepared. We have stayed here dozens of times, including for business trips and retreats and large group meetings that I managed, and my advice is to close the restaurant or change the chefs.

  • Oct 29, 2018 by Lisa C

    The staff was very friendly and helpful! We loved the ambiance of the room facing the ocean with a fireplace and a patio area. We had a lovely breakfast at the Spyglass Restaurant. The food and service were excellent!

  • Oct 29, 2018 by Curious60...

    Thank you so much for allowing us to stay with you. Price was amazing and room was very clean and tidy. Excellent view and roomServices. We will definitely be coming back to stay again. Thank you again.

  • Oct 29, 2018 by sabrinaha...

    For the level of expense to stay at this hotel they should, at the least, provide a breakfast. However, it should be separate from the restaurant be case the food there is not good. And the service at the restaurant is terrible!

  • Oct 29, 2018 by bobtumpan...

    The setting was extremely beautiful, the facilities (room) were very good and the overall experience was excellent. I slept better in that room than I have is some time. The ocean volume from the surf was very relaxing.

  • Oct 27, 2018 by sdbb17

    Clean room but it was stuffy and no air conditioner. I had a ocean view room but since it was the 1st floor and there was no east wall ventilation you couldn’t get a breeze of air inside. Ceiling fan didn’t work so the room temp was probably high 70’s woke up in a sweat. The room was clean but the proximity to the ocean creates a little deception. It’s a beautiful view but you need to walk about 50 yards to get the picturesque view.

  • Oct 27, 2018 by Casale13

    We stopped for a night while driving Rt 1 and loved our stay! The room had an amazing view, the beds were super comfy and checking in and out was very easy. The room was very clean and the staff was very friendly! We’d definitely recommend the Spyglass Inn to anybody traveling through the area, or just looking for a relaxing time away!

  • Oct 26, 2018 by schnitzle...

    No air conditioning in any room which made it difficult to sleep. The bottled water in the room for drinking was expensive. The restaurant has good food at reasonable price. Good food and beautiful location other than that a mediocre inn with a high end price.

  • Oct 26, 2018 by lynnedelp...

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Spyglass Inn. This was my first time here and at Pismo Beach. I had an ocean view room with a fireplace and a patio. The room was large and very clean. The staff was awesome. And the views...WOW!

  • Oct 25, 2018 by funnysora

    Hotel was ok, but doesn’t have air con, can get a bit stuffy. Rooms are not sound proof enough to stop stupid old women from coming to knock on your door telling you to shut up during your stay at this hotel. The bad experience is from the neighbor. I brought my family here for vacation, and I have young children. My neighbor came knocking on my door at 9pm telling me that she can’t sleep because my kids were too noisy. We just got back to the hotel and everyone was just settling down, the TV wasn’t even turned on. The children honestly weren’t even crying or yelling or screaming of any sort. We hassled the kids to sleep and by 10pm everyone was in bed and keeping quiet. But guess what, the same neighbor had a baby crying and screaming at 12am when my entire family were asleep. Do I go over and knock on her door and tell her that her grandchild is noisy? Of cos I am not as idiot as she is, every kid make noise, you can’t tell a baby to not cry in the middle of the night. It’s such a bad stay. We can’t even talk in our own room without having someone come and tell us not to disturb their sleep. Never had that before in other chain hotels like Marriott or Hilton or Hyatt. I so regret not booking my stay at the Hilton garden inn which was also cheaper. I wanted this place and willing to pay a bit more because I thought there was at least some view of the ocean. I didn’t get any and yet I got some nasty neighbors. Sorry but I honestly will not come back again.

    We stopped on our way from San Francisco to Santa Barbara to visit schools. I would have liked to stay longer than just a quick night's sleep. The rooms are well appointed and they offer a smore kit at the desk. Thoughtful details.

  • Oct 24, 2018 by gcampagna...

    My stay was pleasantly suprising and with beautiful sunset views. Room was what we had hoped for and more. But you may want a top room as to not hear others walking around at odd hours during the night.

  • Oct 23, 2018 by nleach88

    My wife and I stopped in here on a whim using hotel tonight and it did not disappoint! We got an ocean view room equipped with a fireplace. There were three fire pits outside on the boardwalk as well that were super easy to use. I cannot get over how pretty the views were here. They also have a few restaurants within walking distance. We took advantage of the guest discount for breakfast the next day at the Spyglass Inn's restaurant.

  • Oct 23, 2018 by Jason S

    Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Would recommend to anyone vising the central coast. Staff was friendly and was a decent value for the price. Great for visiting our daughter at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for parents weekend.

  • Oct 23, 2018 by dianetpap

    I can't rave enough about this place! I have been coming here since I was a newlywed in 1988! Everything about this hotel and Shell Beach is pure magic. The place looks great as it has been modernized but still has a little of the old unspoiled California feel to it.

  • Oct 22, 2018 by Jonathan Gonzalez

    Our second stay at this property and we love it even more than the first time! Clean, spacious, quiet rooms. YOU NEED to reserve an ocean view room. Nothing beats watching the sunset from your bed or the your own personal patio or balcony(if you stay on the second floor)!

  • Oct 22, 2018 by Teri Ann...

    Front desk staff on the Saturday we stayed were amazing! So friendly, helpful and got us in to our room 2 hours early! One of the best relaxing birthdays! The room was clean and great. TV would be nice to upgrade to smart TV so we could watch more and use Netflix, but overall....fantastic!

  • Oct 22, 2018 by Mobile648...

    stayed in ocean front room and was very satisfied. Room was good size for 2 of us. Great view and walking path. Good location for us as we were there only one night for wedding. Hotel was very accommodating by getting us early check-in so we could shower and dress before wedding.

  • Oct 22, 2018 by bmcclymon...

    Facilities were well kept and at a very scenic location on the water. Pool, hot tub, and fire pits next to the ocean were very nice. Parking was more than adequate on our visit. Only downside is that the rooms don't have AC, and on warm days (upper 80's to low 90's) the rooms get hot and stay hot due to not having cross ventilation. We requested a box fan for our room and it made it more tolerable the second night to help pump in cool air from the window. I was surprised that for the price, that a complementary breakfast was not included. I'd consider staying here again but only in the winter or the spring months.

  • Oct 18, 2018 by Michael Randall

    Perfect location good conversation alongside two beautiful women what more can you ask for in life? Hats off to the police department I don't know how I would have explained that one hint dark road I was wearing only a spa robe 230 am open liquor in the car) not looking good but luckily I wasn't drinking ) overall great resort. Welcoming staff was great a little disappointed in a few areas but we won't go into that

  • Oct 18, 2018 by landrkena...

    Nice hotel. We got upgraded to a suite with a view which was great for our family. Loved the ocean view, the walk along the water, and the fire pit with the lawn around it. The room was nice and roomy and had all the things we needed.

  • Oct 18, 2018 by Sharon K

    Everything was perfect. The room was so comfortable and the views amazing. The staff could not have been nicer. Everything from the time we checked in to the time we checked out. We went to the restaurant for the endless crab and I was not disappointed. Jennifer, our server was wonderful, She anticipated our every need and the bartender was also very nice as well. We will definitely stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

  • Oct 17, 2018 by Trek60666...

    Fantastic location and great service. Decent restaurant on site. Had a fireplace room on the first floor and you could walk to the cliff edge easily. Fireplace could have worked better. Front desk was great.

  • Oct 16, 2018 by Ferryfe

    We enjoyed our stay at this Inn. We paid for an ocean view room and it was spectacular. We had beach access via a resort style walk way cliffside. This made our daily walks very pleasant. The rooms were comfortable, clean and pretty spacious. We were visiting our daughter at Cal Poly which was about a 15-20 minute drive.

  • Oct 15, 2018 by Resort815...

    This is a very cute place in a wonderful sleepy town of Pismo. The hotel is quite and clean. The room feels updated and well kept. . Even though we didn't have an ocean view, the walk to the beach is just a few minutes away. We had a beer on the deck of the little restaurant and it was perfect.

  • Oct 13, 2018 by Travis F.

    The rooms have a nice layout and the ocean view is very pretty. The fire pit is cool to. The stuff i didn't like was that the cleanliness of the room wasn't very good. The outside of the hotel needs to be painted and better taken care of. There is NO AIR CONDITIONING!! I know it's the beach but it still gets hot and stuffy in the rooms. The beds aren't comfortable either. They're worn out. I think for the price I'll try somewhere else next time.

  • Oct 13, 2018 by bryntully

    A peaceful break from the busy Route 101. Super location at top of buffs overlooking Pacific Ocean.Enjoyed evening drinks on lawn watching the sun go down and pelicans flying by around table with gas fired heater in centre

  • Oct 11, 2018 by Anne-Mari...

    Room was nicely decorated although it was extremely dark in room could have done with another light.Food at restaurant was excellent best clams ever.Had little sleep due to hijinks of other guests could not sleep due to their noise managment should have sorted this was unacceptable that it was allowed to go on for as long as it did.

  • Oct 10, 2018 by Ed E.

    I was a little disappointed in my last stay at a Pacific Hotel in Cambria last year.  It was really in need of refurbishment.  Pacific sent me a "spiff" for another one of their hotels.  I selected the Spyglass Inn in Pismo Beach.   This is an older hotel, that was renovated in late 2015 and has been well-kept since then.  When you make your reservation make sure you request a second floor, ocean view room.  If you request early enough you will find some of the best view in the area.  If you don't make the request for ocean view there are some room that have you looking at a parking lot.   The room was nothing fancy, but the view was spectacular only outdone by the fantastic fall weather.  Everything was clean and functional.  The staff was more than gracious. I prefer the northern end of Pismo Beach to the downtown areas.  It is quieter and there are better classes of hotels at this end.  Our five-day long weekend stay was $1,500.     Disappointing is the property restaurant... it falls way below the rest of the venue.  It didn't seem to get the same renovation as the hotel property.  To be honest I didn't eat there, because just walking in was a turn-off.  But not to worry, there are plenty of very nice restaurant in the 5-beach cities area at all price points. If you're an Angeleno, it's just a short beautiful trip up the 101 with plenty of ocean views and whale sightings (depending on the season.  I will go back!

  • Oct 10, 2018 by Jackie W

    When we entered our room 120 for the first time, we noticed a stain on the bedspread. (This should have been noticed by housekeeping prior to our stay) It looked to be blood or red nail polish. We called the front desk and somebody responded immediately to replace the bedspread. Other than that incident, we had a great stay.

  • Oct 10, 2018 by Ed E

    This is an older beach-front hotel in the northern part of Pismo Beach that has recently been refurbished. We had a great beach view room that was spacious and well appointed--nothing fancy--but very comfortable. The staff was extremely friendly. Because it so close to Los Angeles it makes for a great weekend get-a-way. We would come back. The restaurant is nothing to speak of, but luckily there are a lot of other choices in Pismo or the other 5 communities around the hotel.

  • Oct 08, 2018 by aggel476

    We loved everything about this place! We had an ocean view room with a terrace and enjoyed the beautiful view overlooking the cliffs. The rooms itself were spacious and clean and the bed very comfortable. We would have loved to stay longer!

  • Oct 08, 2018 by Voyage348...

    We has a corner standard room which was super clean and big. Nothing to complain about our stay. The staff was great and the housekeeping staff was Extremely nice. Th location was perfect for us. The restaurant was great i love going to Pismo in the off season. I purposely stay away during summer because the price is too expensive and too many people.

  • Oct 08, 2018 by cmolson20...

    Beautiful views, clean and spacious rooms, friendly staff. I would highly recommend staying here. The bed was very comfy. The atmosphere of the Inn was charming and coastal. The beach is a 3 min. walk away.

  • Oct 08, 2018 by rosemarye...

    Incredible view from our room, great spot for a walk to the beach, lovely accommodations --- loved being close to SLO and AG for restaurants --- wonderful afternoon wine tasting in Paso --- have a couple ideas of things to do on our next trip

  • Oct 07, 2018 by smalldog3...

    We chose the SpyGlass Inn as an opportunity to stay on the shore of the ocean in Southern/Central California. Although our room didn't directly face the ocean, we could see it from out balcony. The area adjacent to the cliff overlooking the ocean shore is a very short walk from any room at the motel and the area above the shore is beautifully decorated/planted. It makes for a nice along the cliff to view the ocean. The room was nicely decorated and clean and parking is very convenient and close to the rooms.

  • Oct 06, 2018 by Mikala T

    We stayed for one night during a road trip and the hotel room was very nice but we wish we knew there was no air conditioning. There wasn’t much of a breeze even with the doors open. So it was hot while we were sleeping. The fire pits and everything were all super nice though!

  • Oct 06, 2018 by Relax8170...

    Had a wonderful time staying in this Inn in September 2018. Right by the Ocean. Comfortable beds. Very friendly staff. We also dined at its restaurant , good food , a good place to watch the sun goes down.

  • Oct 06, 2018 by I6848KHda...

    We had a 4 hour trip. We arrived early and our room was not ready . No complaint on that. My wife had. To use the bathroom and was told the closest one was at the restaurant It was raining. I find it difficult to believe there was no restroom in the office. As a result, I gave a poor rating on service. The whole attitude was very nonchalant. We have been guests, staying with you for 25 years and I did not appreciate the attitude.

  • Oct 06, 2018 by susanbeth...

    Absolutely love this place. Service, rooms, views, and restaurant are all amazing. Partial ocean view has an amazing view and is a great value for price. Fire pits are fun and relaxing. Been here twice and will return!

  • Oct 05, 2018 by M1192XWli...

    Could hear the ocean, see the ocean,walk above the ocean! So comfy was the bed. Convenient to on site restaurant. In room fireplace! Outdoor fire pit with ocean view! It was relaxing, comfortable & safe.

  • Oct 04, 2018 by Gillian...

    We had an ocean view room with a great view for just 2 nights. If Tao ed for the first evening (!) But on the second we could watch the sunset from our own patio- spectacular. This us an updated motel and looks like it from outside but our room was huge , well redesigned with a separate bathroom and dressing room and the large window and patio.Nicely furnished. It was quiet but I suspect other rooms would have had a lot of noise from highway 101. The pool was very small and overlooked. There have been several poor reviews of the restaurant but we had two dinners and a breakfast. We found the service excellent and the food was fine- the usual hotel of this type menu and certainly nothing to complain of. We chose to eat here as in fact the hotel us really not situated that conveniently for anywhere else without driving. The two hotels next door were much swankier but less pleasant. Great views from the restaurant here am and pm.

  • Oct 02, 2018 by crishm7

    Great hotel with excellent customer service Beautiful view ocean view is worth the splurge. Stayed here for a quick getaway with husband definitely planning on coming back. Room was clean bed was comfy

  • Oct 01, 2018 by jack rogers

    Service was awesome. Rooms were good. We got the upper view of the ocean. Beautiful. Scale 1 to 10 on the patio of the room. Needed either a lower railing or higher chairs to sit and relax with a view. Like your view was the center of the railing. Restaurant was awesome. Love it. We have been staying there even when they took pets. Haven't been there on the upper level since the remodeling. We will keep coming back. ( do something with the patio)

  • Oct 01, 2018 by Trisha M

    love staying at spyglass inn! i like how spyglass restaurant is right there and walk across the street and there is the Japanese restaurant and the deli/liquor store. everything is so good!! they did a great job on the remodel of the rooms and property.

  • Oct 01, 2018 by Rachel S

    We loved the modest yet upscale two-story hotel. The room was really comfortable with all the amenities I'd hope for in my stay. The bed was super comfortable, and we loved the balcony with comfortable seating. Community fire pits were wonderful! My only request would be to add a Level 2 charger for one or two electric cars (NOT Tesla specific!). We had to park our electric car in SLO for the day in order to charge it; that was a bummer. We promise it will be a great incentive for your guests to stay, if you have chargers in place.

  • Sep 30, 2018 by Scott R.

    We only stayed here because we drove from San Fran to LA and it was a quick stop in pismo to sleep. But I have to say the man at the front desk was super friendly and made it all very easy. The room was very clean and the bed was very comfortable. We actually looked at the brand of pillows they had and already ordered them on line! Hahah Anyway we didn't have an ocean view room but we took a nice walk in the morning and the grounds are beautiful. They have these great little fire pits with an ocean view, great place to enjoy your morning coffee!! Heads up No A/C but that wasn't an issue when we stayed.

  • Sep 29, 2018 by Megan Bond

    The room and view was amazing. I left the sliding door open all day and all night to listen to the crashing of the waves. I moved the couch in front of the sliding door to sit and watch the ocean. Jon the night auditor was amazing to make my husband and I wedding Anniversary better. We found our new getaway thanks to the great view and Jon.

  • Sep 28, 2018 by billy92pr...

    The room was clean comfortable and newly updated with a great view. The grounds have a nice seating area with gas fire pit perfect for small gatherings or just a nice place to enjoy the view. The Inn also has a restaurant on site but I can't review it because I never made it in.

  • Sep 27, 2018 by ralv0yage

    The Spyglass Inn exceeded my expectations for a quick business trip to the area. I wish I could have stayed longer! Check in and check out were both speedy. The room was pleasant, spacious, and quiet. The location is wonderful and I enjoyed a quick walk along the bluffs after breakfast with an ocean view. The beds are plush and better than I expected at the price point. Great value!

  • Sep 27, 2018 by bluffnet

    I have stayed here several times... it's a great location and a fine view of the ocean (if you pay for it) The rate has progressively gone up. I am on a senior's budget and it has just about reached the point where I can no longer stay here.

  • Sep 26, 2018 by Lynda P.

    Really nice experience and had a wonderful time at the coast! We've never stayed here before and we were glad we did. We booked the room with a partial ocean view with a king bed and it was really comfortable and the room was very nice. The room was very clean and with a modern style. Very quite and relaxing! It had a few places for USB hookup's, a Keurig coffee machine, refrigerator, guest robes, toiletries, nice sitting area and a great view of that beautiful ocean! At check in there was coffee, water and cookies and the customer service was great! The only drawback is they don't offer a continental breakfast, which is very convenient when you're wanting to get going your day. Definitely will stay again.

  • Sep 26, 2018 by GezandJun...

    This one of the best hotels we have stayed in. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by lovely friendly staff. The rooms are a good size and fully equipped. I am now sat on our balcony watching sea otters at play. My wife and I work hard and this is our beautiful reward. If you are travelling from S@n Francisco to LA, this place is a half way haven xx

  • Sep 26, 2018 by jlovesjef...

    everything good except heater, heater was bit old. beautiful view,good location and good service, staff was friendly, if hotel provides breakfast was superb.this hotel needs little upgrade in the room

  • Sep 26, 2018 by Steven932...

    Nice clean comfortable room with a great view. The beach there is never crowed. They have fire pit where you can stay warm and listen to the ocean after sunset. They have a very friendly and helpful staff.

  • Sep 25, 2018 by The_Boy_o...

    I grew up an hour away from Pismo, so our family has been making regular trips to Pismo Beach for short summer getaways all throughout my childhood. We'd usually stay further in town, at a local motel or something more economical. We had originally booked a traditional room, but upgraded upon checking in to our reservation. Our upgrade was worth the extra splurge; the room was large and beautifully decorated. A large sliding glass door opened out onto a balcony that overlooked a patio area below that sat bonfire pits and comfortable seating. Ahead, the cliff overlooked the gushing waves below. We slept with the balcony door open (we were on the second floor of the building), and fell asleep to the sounds of the soothing waves below (it was magical!). We did eat at the restaurant for both dinner the night of our reservation, and for brunch the following day. The food is very tasty, and we enjoyed the patio seating on both occasions. I have nothing negative to say about this hotel, other than the fact that you must pay for the WiFi (we are living in the 21st century, after all!). Will be returning to this location for each and every trip to Pismo Beach!

  • Sep 24, 2018 by ricknett

    I like the upgrades to the rooms, new décor with big screen TV, great bedding. However, the bathroom tissue felt like sand paper. The restaurant is average at best and no room service is offered. Check-in was OK but insisted on license plate number all other info was listed. I have not memorized my license plate number. Had to return to the front desk as keys were not programed.

  • Sep 24, 2018 by shelngav

    Beautiful ocean view with 3 gas firepits available (if you get there in time) while enjoying your ocean view. They even sell s'mores kits (for $10) or bring your own and enjoy a campfire dessert while listening to the ocean waves. The front desk staff was great and got us in to an early check-in and texting to let us know when the room was ready. We stayed in the King room. The room is very spacious and the bed is comfortable. They also have goose feather pillows. The room has a fridge and Keurig type coffee maker, which I didn't use. It was quiet at night after everyone settled in. My two complaints were this. 1. Evidently they had shampooed the two fabric benches in the room, because I sat on one and my jeans were wet. No note and actually they should have been removed until dry. 2. In the shower, the maid obviously dumped the mop water in the tub just before we came as there was foam and dirt around the drain in the tub. Thankfully, I hadn't planned to soak in the tub. If you plan to eat at the restaurant...I would highly caution against it. The two times we went to get something there, we could not get service. We were sitting outside, however they would ask people next to us and behind us if they needed anything, brought them food etc. and said nothing to us. We had to get our own drinks, ask for menus, and even after getting a menu with nothing on the table, they just dropped the menu and walked away. We waited with no one returning and decided we would spend our hard earned money elsewhere. This isn't the first visit that has been this way. They need new management. They are pretty reminiscent of their sister restaurant Rose's, which we will never patronize again either.

  • Sep 24, 2018 by Christina...

    There is a walkway behind the hotels that are shared and the views are simply beautiful! Our room was average, no fireplace or AC (we were warm after our walk down to the beach) but the beds were quite comfy! Staff was very helpful, Greeted us with cookies. Loved the fire pits along the beach and purchased a s’mores lot from the front desk. Pool was nice and warm. Would love to stay again with an ocean view and fireplace.

  • Sep 23, 2018 by Aleah K

    Brought my sister to stay while I worked. Close to everything you need. Clean(I’m picky) Alicia our housekeeper was great!!! I was impressed I travel weekly and this was a great place to stay. For fun or for business really a relaxing time.

  • Sep 23, 2018 by nannyambt

    We decided at noon to take a drive over to the beach on Saturday from Bakersfield so I called and booked a room. Way over priced but it was a Saturday night. Great view. The staff was super friendly and the room was nice and the bed was a comfy high bed. There was a fridge and coffee maker, I was excited until i saw they only had half and half, not regular creamer. The fire pits outside was a nice touch with a push button starter. They told us to try the breakfast special at the spyglass restaurant- bad mistake- won’t do that again.

  • Sep 23, 2018 by huero1963

    Online it says ocean view, our room was in the opposite side. Rooms were clean but had ants. Service was good. No AC in the whole hotel but had ceiling fans and if you asked you can get a box fan. I believe we should've paid less for the location of our room, because online it said otherwise.

  • Sep 22, 2018 by frannyhix

    We stayed only one night. Bed very comfortable and room nice and clean. Wish we had more time to spend there.No air condition so I would not recommend heat of summer but ocean breeze was wonderful. Breakfast was good.

  • Sep 22, 2018 by DK S

    If you want to walk out and put feet in sand it's not the place for you, but if you want a gorgeous cliff view of the ocean from your bed it's perfect. I had a bad cold and didn't get out much, but enjoyed it immensely. The restaurant is good too.

  • Sep 22, 2018 by dowlady

    Wonderful relaxing stay . Bed was soft warm comfortable. Location perfect from amtrak grover beavh and uber day and night. Close to everything including farmer’s market san luis obispo. I will be back

  • Sep 22, 2018 by rosie1982

    We found this to be a much nicer location than the centre of Pismo. We were very lucky and were upgraded to a suite for our 2 night stay which was excellent. The rooms overlooking the ocean have spectacular views and you can watch the sunset. The firepits are a real bonus for toasting marshmallows in the evening. The restaurant is a little tired but the happy hour is good value.

  • Sep 21, 2018 by Sue L

    Easy check in. We got a great rate on Hotels Tonight. The room was nice, beds very comfy! Small room fan was very powerful- we used it! Had refrig, Keurig coffee maker. Liked the restaurant- nice Happy Hour!

  • Sep 20, 2018 by steveemon...

    Love the location. The staff was excellent. We have been coming here since the remodel & have enjoyed each visit. The only criticism I have is the conditions of the furniture & rooms have really went down hill. The furniture very worn the ottoman was very stained as well as the rug in the room. Needs some TLC

  • Sep 20, 2018 by milansere...

    I have to say that this is a beautiful place to stay. The first time I went for an ocean view room, which was well worth it. The next time I was just passing thru for work so I opted for a regular room and again, I was not disappointed. This hotel is very clean - which is the most important aspect for me. Another bonus is that I had booked for 2 nights and they let me change with no charge the next morning when plans changed. Great hotel!

  • Sep 19, 2018 by jessejaci...

    We enjoyed our stay at the Beautiful Spy Glass inn . It was filled with awe inspiring views , calming sunset , well manicured landscape that tied in to the natural cliffs and of course I the warning fire pits. . We topped it off with a hot soak in every warm hot tub .will definitely Visit again . Thanks

  • Sep 19, 2018 by jessicama...

    Was a quick trip up the coast they checked us in a little early and we got an upgrade to an ocean view. Well worth the money. Rooms were very clean. And quiet lots of restaurants in walking distance. Like 5mins there are more in pismo but you need to drive a mile or 2 down the road.Would book again!

  • Sep 19, 2018 by Safari319...

    Room was clean, but mattress has seen better days.The restaurant was awful, dirty, staff not knowing how to make a cocktail. I believe the hotel is trying to buy it back as its run by a 3rd party - they need to do this soon!

  • Sep 18, 2018 by 0525kaye

    Over all stay is great, except for when I presented the breakfast voucher, it was a not honored by the restaurant. It was a shame:( However, the waitress was nice enough to call the office to clarify. Office staff gave me a credit $ 40.00 for the hassle. That was nice though, but I hope next time, whatever on your website should match, so customers will not encounter inconvenience like what I have encountered.

  • Sep 18, 2018 by Theresa R...

    We have stayed here before and loved it. This time it was overpriced and one day our room was not made up. We had to track down a maid at 4:30pm to make it up. We were also disappointed with the restaurant service. We sat at a table for 20 minutes. When no one came to give us service, we left.

  • Sep 17, 2018 by paviolas

    Really bad motel where the views from select rooms are awesome but hotel itself is old, no air conditioning, average to not good room conditions and highly priced. There are no upscale amenities and if you do not have a view....you are staying in less than a Motel 6. Poor lighting, trying to get ready for an event with no air conditioning. Entitled staff

  • Sep 17, 2018 by 73troyl

    We loved the place. We would have loved it better had we been in a view room with the big prices paid, but overall it was great. Everybody jacks their prices on the big Cal Poly weekends, we know that.

  • Sep 17, 2018 by mariej0ur...

    Thank you for a terrific stay at your facility. Our family enjoyed the fire pit and s’mores. We hope the resturant improves their food. Beautiful facility. Our grandchildren loved it there. Avila Beach had a cleaner beach.

  • Sep 16, 2018 by Mark Morales

    We loved our stay here the room was amazing with a great view of the ocean. Fire bowls were nice to have to end our night. Overall a great choice. Our only complaint was having to wait an hours past check in time to get our room but we loved our stay.

  • Sep 16, 2018 by jennablai...

    Newly renovated rooms, very comfortable beds. Easy access to beautiful views along the cliffs and an easy walk to the beach. Serene and tranquil. Excellent staff and a nice restaurant with good values.

  • Sep 16, 2018 by beccas402...

    Had our wedding here. The suite was nice and roomy for all of the wedding decor, and perfect for my "grand" entrance. The suite was clean. Only down fall, no air conditioning. As long as the window and sliding door were open and ceiling fans going, the room was cool.

  • Sep 16, 2018 by Sue B

    Always enjoy coming to SLO/Pismo area, its been a few years since our last visit.We've stayed at the Spyglass before and booked several rooms for my daughter's wedding at Dolphin Bay in 2012.The rooms seem to be upgraded and was actually very comfortable, plus we got an upgrade to partial ocean view.My only feedback would to add a lamp on the desk, as it was hard to work on the computer there after dark. Also the light bulb over the outside sink needed to be replaced as it was also dark there. I already told the front desk so hopefully they will take care of it.

  • Sep 16, 2018 by maureenin...

    Our room was on the second floor with balcony with a fabulous view of the ocean. The gardens around Spyglass are kept beautifully which added to the view from our room. My only complaint is that there were no towel bars on which to hang our used towels. Staff is very nice and the restaurant service excellent. Our dinner and breakfast were delicious.

    We loved our room with balcony! Room was very clean and cozy. We absolutely loved watching the ocean and being right on cliffs. We had a little trouble with tv, but we weren't really there for watching tv. We loved Spyglass Inn and hope to come back someday!

    Great place to stay in Pismo Beach. Had a second floor room with balcony overlooking the ocean that was fabulous, so comfortable. Then there are the gardens absolutely beautiful tropical flowers everywhere & fire pit seating areas perfect to enjoy morning coffee or watching the sun set.  The restaurant has excellent entrees as well as service. Will return again

    Was upgraded to an ocean view room and it was incredible. Front desk was friendly and recommended some places for us to check out. The bed was unbelievably comfy and the room was spacious and clean. Went to happy hour at the restaurant and enjoyed the fire pits during the epic sunset. Wasn't expecting much because the rates were much cheaper than some of the other ocean front hotels but I was pleasantly surprised and would definitely recommend this place. The views alone are perfect!

    The location was fabulous. The food at the restaurant was amazing. The hot tub was great. The shower was nice and hot as well as the hot tub. The staff was very helpful. Will be back soon for another vacation or celebration

  • Sep 13, 2018 by m0mmashar...

    The Front Desk was very helpful & courteous. This is our 3rd time visiting Spyglass Inn. Perfect location to wonderful restaurants. Never disappointed Love the ocean view fire pits for roasting marsh mellows or enjoying friends & family

  • Sep 11, 2018 by Kevin Garcia

    Great location next to the ocean. Clean comfortable room. They did a good job renovating the place. Its not a cheesy makeup job by any means. Its a couple miles from the ruckus downtown. Beach access is kinda a walk down the sidewalk and a long set of stairs but still walkable.

  • Sep 11, 2018 by marthajqu...

    A great stay very clean very nice view. Would stay again. Had everything there, shampoo, body wash and conditioner. Everything very handy in room. Eric was great at front desk. Very Helpful when we had to move to another room. We Love this place Lots. Thank you again. Thank the whole staff.

  • Sep 10, 2018 by bsmith325...

    The bathroom floor looked like it wasn't swept or mopped..the room was somewhat dated. The bed was comfortable and clean, but still didn't sleep very good because of the stomping of our neighbors above us!The fireplace could have worked better..The location and view was amazing! The firepit outside was dirty but we enjoyed it anyway!

  • Sep 10, 2018 by Tom R.

    Our weekend in Pismo Beach started out terrible in a rundown hotel with a smelly smoke smell room and not happy about this room! THEN we called Spyglass Inn hoping to find a nicer room at such a short notice. They were just down the street from us so we called and talked to a very nice guy named Mitch. He found us a room for two nights in his hotel. When we got to the hotel we explained that we also had two electric bikes with us. So Mitch, along with Jennifer, put our bikes in a room behind their office so they could keep an eye on them for us. Jennifer then upgraded us to a better room because our day had started out so poorly. We highly recommend this hotel and would like to thank Mitch and Jennifer for all of their help and being so courteous! Tom

    Spent two very relaxing nights at the Spyglass and were lucking enough to get an upgrade to a Seaview room which made the holiday. Simply stunning, waking up to the sound of the sea and sea birds was wonderful. Very convenient location for Pismo Beach and local eateries

  • Sep 08, 2018 by mazermail...

    My husband has cancer and I have extreme chemical sensitivities. They assured me that we would be happy there because they were right on the beach. We had just checked out of a hotel that promised us an ocean view, but didn’t mention there was a parking lot between the ocean and the hotel.I confirmed with the Spyglass people that there weren’t going to be any chemicals used to clean our rooms. And there would be right on the ocean.We got to our room and it was ok. I quickly discovered there was no air conditioning and our room was overlooking a fire pit. My husband was too sick to move hotels again so we stayed.It wasn’t fun breathing in the gas fumes from the fire pit in the evening. And the hotel personnel were unapologetic. They should have told me about the fire pits before we checked in.

  • Sep 08, 2018 by stephenme...

    Great location close enough to the center of the Pismo action but far enough to step away from it. Easy access off the 101 and even the partial ocean view was gorgeous. Fire pits on the bluff overlooking the Pacific are a nice touch!

  • Sep 07, 2018 by dp1955201...

    Problems were - 1) no ocean view when I booked it 2) mattress terrible 3) sheets dirty 4) shower dirty 5) no tea on property 5) very thin walls 6) Kleenex box “refreshed” w/tissues from other boxes. Need I say more? I will not be back.

  • Sep 07, 2018 by reetzaroo

    We had an ocean view with a balcony. The grounds were amazing and the view was stunning! The room was very comfortable and super clean. The restaurant had excellent food and was next door, outstanding

  • Sep 05, 2018 by sconnor82

    Check in was easy, had a great view, and the room was clean. We asked about upgrading to a view and the gentleman checking us in was extremely helpful. He didn't have a Ocean view but was able to find a partial ocean view which was still amazing, that made our stay so much better! Thank you! My girlfriend left a dress which is a bummer though. Total accident and did not notice until we were home.

  • Sep 05, 2018 by anagnyc20...

    It’s only worth staying here if you get a room (or suite) facing the ocean. The hotel has a small but nice reception with a handsome chess set, Granny Smith apples and fresh cookies. The room was not worth $340/night (Labor Day weekend prices), but only $169; no down comforter, few stains on the ottoman, rips in the carpet and curtains, the king size bed was 7/10 comfy. The Wine shop next to Shell gas station is tremendous with a large variety of cheeses, chips, chocolates, fresh fruits, even baked chicken. One cannot walk anywhere except to Kanpai, the Japanese restaurant, 100 feet from Shell and the Wine shop. A car is a must to go downtown Pismo, Oceano, Grover Beach, Avila and/or SLO. Pool is quite small, and also the jacuzzi. Fire pits a plus, with an available Marshmellow kit for $10 extra, so fun for kids!

  • Sep 04, 2018 by lmodic

    Great location and room! A little noisy from our neighbors next door because of the open balconies. But they quieted down by 10:30pm. If the balcony was enclosed on each side with partitions, it would have been quieter. The happy hour drinks and appetizers were great! Loved the cookies upon arrival. Definitely will be back!

  • Sep 04, 2018 by ceosborne...

    Didnt get a ocean view, friends of our were upgraded right away upon check out we had ants in our room (thank you for comping 1 night) but still during peak prices please be on top of your game. or strive to make it better

  • Sep 04, 2018 by tamarrae2...

    The place was nearly perfect. The only down side is being close to the freeway. I would not bother to stay in a non-ocean facing room. It really is as pretty as the pictures. There are 4 restaurants within walking distance, plus a deli.

  • Aug 28, 2018 by fishinwal...

    Check in went well. Walked into the room and it smelled musty. The carpet felt damp, after taking off my sandals. Almost stepped on something between the beds. I picked the item up and saw it was a disposable personal dental hygiene tool. Yes, I washed after disposing of it. Not sure how that could be missed when the room was cleaned. Had a nice anniversary dinner at the Spyglass Restaurant and walked back towards our room. In the parking lot in front of our room, my wife saw an object on the ground. It was a cd case. Inside the case was a loaded pistol with additional ammunition. I gave it to the desk attendant, who seemed confused. I suggested he call the police and let them know a handgun was found. Not sure what the outcome was. I don’t really care about hotel prices, but didn’t feel the stay was worth the cost.

  • Aug 28, 2018 by Relax2782...

    The location is great. But this is clearly an old motel that was updated. No elevator, the quality of pool you'd expect at a motel. The rooms had had a facelift. The bed was comfortable but the wicker headboard was strange. I think the most strange part of the room was that there were 2 sinks - but one was outside the bathroom and was not updated (older granite and cabinets) and an updated sink and tile in the bathroom itself. Just not sure what the point of leaving them intact and mismatched. If there was an air conditioning unit we couldn't figure it out. Lastly we never had our room serviced and we were there 2 nights. We had left the room for a good 3 hours and came back to a non-serviced room.Pros: location, nice ocean front fire pits you could make smores at, balcony you pay extra forCons: no elevator, overpriced for an updated motel

  • Aug 27, 2018 by Marlan A

    The lighting was so bad in the bathroom areas that you could not even do hair or make up. No towel racks for hand towels and limited for bath. It was beautiful... but just very difficult to do basic get ready tasks. What a shame. I would highly recommend the location - (Bring a make up mirror and a reading light. - there are none!)

  • Aug 27, 2018 by robinpowe...

    I loved my stay at the Spyglass so much. The service was amazing, I received a complementary upgrade on the room that made the stay 100 times better. The cookies, the coffee, the apples, the firepits. Everything was extra special. I will be back soon.

  • Aug 27, 2018 by 145jaimev

    the hotel is very easy to get to from the freeway. Access back onto the freeway is just as good. The room we were given had a very comfortable bed. The bathroom and closet are a bit tight, but not bad for a few das stay. Great view of the sea from the restaurant and the food is good, at a fair price.

  • Aug 26, 2018 by Tracy L

    The spyglass inn is centrally love cated on Shell beach. Your stay and experience will be completely dependent on the room you book. We, did not book a room with a water view and therefore we looked out onto a common outdoor hallway, overlooking the parking lot. However, the rooms on the water have unmatched ocean views. Our bed was super comfy and the inside of our room was nice. The outside & grounds by the water are very nice. The outside, by any of the other rooms and pool area are “Meh” - reminiscent of an old motor inn/ motel from the 1970’s. However, rooms were very comfortable & had very nice beds. Sushi place & market across the street was amazing, the location was perfect for us- we were traveling locally and this hotel was so central. Management and staff were very accommodating and professional and did everything they could to make our stay pleasant and we sincerely appreciate their efforts.

  • Aug 25, 2018 by kmiller13

    Wonderful rooms, beautiful landscaping and convenience all add up to a great experience at the Spyglass Inn. The rooms were more than comfortable with nicer amenities and a wonderful balcony where we could watch the waves. Firepits are available in the evenings but get claimed pretty quickly. Probably a better place for couples than kids as there is no true beach to play on.

  • Aug 24, 2018 by kellyboca...

    It's a fantastic view and the front office was very helpful. We found the food in the restaurant to be ok...nothing special. One day we went back to our room and they had done other cleaning but did not make the beds. We weren't sure why. The office sent someone to take care of it. The rooms could be updated and hopefully a mirror in the main room would have been nice. There were small black bugs flying in the room and bathroom the entire stay.

  • Aug 23, 2018 by londonlad...

    Stayed whilst on a trip down the coast. Front desk staff very friendly. Had an ocean view room which to be honest are the only ones here I would consider staying in unless you want to be in a car park or on a busy road. Looks a bit shabby and rundown from the outside, but the rooms are well decorated and very comfortable. There is a bar and restaurant attached and a food and wine shop across the way. Watching the dolphins play from the balcony was a real treat. Very quiet and peaceful at night and a treat to sleep with the balcony door open and drift off listening to the sound of the waves. Would happily stay again.

  • Aug 21, 2018 by Layla Ali-Ahmad

    The Spyglass Inn is such a gem! It’s dwarfed by the Dolphin Bay, next door, but has twice the charm for a fraction of the cost. We booked their corner first floor suite, with a gorgeous view of Pismo, Shell and Avila Beach. Meesh was such a gracious host! She made sure all of our needs were taken care of. The room was spotless with plenty of natural light and a comfortable bed. We will definitely be back soon. My husband and I plan on making a yearly trip to stay at the Dolphin Bay, since it’s such a quick trip from LA. Don’t waste your time with other hotels in the area.

  • Aug 21, 2018 by Christine...

    Wonderful view, great rooms, small but fun beach with tide pools. Restaurant was not the best but Shell beach offers some better restaurants. Avila and Pismo beaches are a quick drive making this hotel ideal.

  • Aug 21, 2018 by evelynalc...

    Great time. Wanted to stay an additional night but was fully booked. That says alot from the place. Great location off freeway and beach front. Rooms were clean and modern. Bed was superb. Will definitely recommend to all friends.

    This hotel does just about everything they need to in order to be a really wonderful place to stay.We wanted to get out of town and go somewhere where even though we had to work we could enjoy the setting.We got a partial ocean view because the photos made it seem like we were on the row facing the beach, but we were on the third floor facing a parking lot, then a building and then a beach... if we turned our head just so. the pool that was below us was not very attractive to look at as well. We felt like we were taken advantage of and very disappointed. We checked out the next morning. The worst thing was that this place could have been so nice, but they took a liberty with our expectations. Cannot forgive them for that

    After the smoker next door left and we could finally open our sliding door again (complaints to the office didn't deter his smoking), we were overrun with ants throughout our entire room. The food we brought was compromised, and you've never seen a family pack up their belongings so fast to get away as quickly as we could.

  • Aug 20, 2018 by 950robinl

    love everything about this place. only thing is would like to see changed is a microwave in the rooms, ceiling fans or air conditioner would be nice. a private patio. I felt like we could not use the patio because the guest next to us was using theirs and it made us uncomfortable. the fire pits are such a nice touch. all in all we enjoyed our stay and will return again

  • Aug 20, 2018 by Rachelle...

    Seriously, I travel A LOT. Unfortunately, despite making ADA room reservations I often show up with no ADA room available, because hotel stall doesn't read the notes and gives away the room. My husband has slept in recliners, and my children have been forced to sleep in roll-aways because hotels can't get their acts together. Spyglass was incredible from the very beginning and we will DEFINITELY stay there again. Keep it up!

  • Aug 20, 2018 by kate m

    This hotel is right on the beach. They have a very old school vibe here. The restaurant has basic seafood dishes that are really tasty. The bartender makes very strong drinks (amazing) and the price is right. The only thing I think they should think about is maybe redoing the carpets in the room. They kind of smell like mildew. The staff was kind and lovely.

  • Aug 19, 2018 by LNKlovesd...

    Pismo is a wonderful place to visit, so many cute shops and amazing restaurants. Our stay at the Spyglass Inn was perfect! The area with the fire pits looking over the bluffs is awesome. Will definitely do it again!

  • Aug 18, 2018

    Nice place to stay! Staff was very friendly. Service was great. In a beautiful location. Nice amenities, especially the fire pits which had an ocean view. Rooms were large, although the decor was a little outdated. Would stay here again...

  • Aug 16, 2018 by Valerie C

    Outstanding view of the coastline from Shell Beach to Avila Beach. Nice groundsl; love the fire pits and pool. Great location with a coastal walkway, beach access, and nearby neighborhoods and restaurants. Rooms are spacious and well kept. However, the mash up of furniture styles does not offer the beach feeling this motel should have.

  • Aug 16, 2018 by DKmedan

    Great location With a beatiful view on the océan. Friendly staff at reception and at the restaurant. Very comfortable beds. Bathrooms well renovated. We didn't feel like going to the pool in the middle of the parking lot.

  • Aug 16, 2018

    Greeted by a friendly girl in reception. Our room was large, bed super comfy, view over the ocean and sunsets stunning. We enjoyed our s'mores by the fire pit great idea. We wish we could have stayed longer.

  • Aug 13, 2018 by Drake B

    I was very disappointed when I arrived. Check in time was 4pm and we had to wait another 45 minutes to enter our room. I was in room 110 and when we entered, there was an odor coming from the carpet and the carpet looked really old. The ceiling was painted two different colors and you could REALLY tell the difference. The furniture was chipped and old, the let out sofa bed was really old. I was scheduled to stay two nights at $330 per night but I checked out after one night. The only reason that I stayed the one night was because it was too late to cancel. My children even stated that the room was not worth $330 per night. My children really enjoyed sitting out by the fire. The view was very nice and the patio was nice but overall I was very disappointed. I probably will not be back.

  • Aug 13, 2018 by ipipeit81

    This is the only place we stay on our trips to Pismo The balcony rooms are just terrific ,peaceful and a great view.We are always met with a friendly greeting and the service is always great. We have made this our go to place, for sure.

  • Aug 11, 2018 by bj0hnst

    Had a fantastic trip. Traveled over from Scotland to visit family in San Jose. Loved our time in California traveling along the West Coast with Spyglass Inn being one of our stops. Really enjoyed our stay and the views especially. Many thanks! regards Brian

  • Aug 10, 2018 by ceds0n

    The location was spectacular, the scenery was gorgeous, and the fire pits were a hit! I highly recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to cool off from the heat. We loved it and look forward to coming back!

  • Aug 09, 2018 by gnamouse

    Very accommodating with location of room we had requested a ground floor because of unexpected injury and could use the stairs, the fridge was nice and I didn't think that the was listed as one of the room description and late check out was not an issue the pool was a bit small & crowded.

  • Aug 09, 2018 by pringlePl...

    The room was small but adequate doe the 4 of us for one night. The restaurant food was very good, highly recommended. The downside was breakfast. Absolute shambles, firstly being sat outside on wet furniture, then the length of time being served. Final insult was having my coffee knocked over by the waiter who mopped the coffee with a napkin and left 70% of the coffee slopping around the table. All things said, the room and food were amazing and would thoroughly recommend.

  • Aug 09, 2018 by Richard D

    This hotel was booked by Trailfinders despite us requesting a 4/5 star hotel. It is no more than a shack on 2 levels, very noisy with lots of families partying at all hours outside your door. The rooms were not soundproof in the least and anyone walking above sounded like the ceiling was about to cave in. The decor was dated and tired, but bed was comfortable. Pismo itself is a dive worth missing and Trailfinders should not have recommended to us knowing that we didn't want to have a Butlins-style holiday in the US.

  • Aug 09, 2018 by bossladyc...

    We just stopped in for one night stay we found that the rooms were very comfortable and clean have a nice Oceanview at dinner and breakfast at the restaurant the food was really good at good prices we will definitely stay here again

  • Aug 08, 2018

    I stopped in with no prior reservation on a Monday night and had a good night's sleep even though I was on the highway facing side of the hotel. Bed was comfortable, room was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. I would return.

  • Aug 06, 2018 by Mario D

    My son had a 21st birthday party and I had to work the next day so I needed a local place to sleep by midnight. Every place was booked on Sunday. I called spyglass and left my number. They called me back and had a room that was cancelled. The guy on the phone was so helpful. I made it there in 20 minutes. He set me up with a great room. Really clean, big and reasonable. I was also starving and he said try the restaurant. The host, who's name was Carson, saw that I was starving and sent me to the bar so I could eat right away. Super great guy!! I had a great clam chowder. service was fast and friendly. Im going back for a local vacation!

  • Aug 06, 2018 by sbizz2017

    Our ocean-view room offered a spectacular and relaxing vista. We loved sitting on the balcony enjoying the scenery. Beds were comfy; pool was warm; staff was attentive and really helpful. We will definitely return...soon!

  • Aug 06, 2018 by dstock704...

    Beautiful spot! Traveling with friends on a mother/daughter weekend trip. This was my first trip to Pismo Beach and I enjoyed our stay. The on-site restaurant was very good. The public fire pits were a nice bonus. The beach access was only a short walk away and there were tide pools to explore! We do wish the pool was open later than 10:00 p.m. Also, the lack of air conditioning was a bit of an issue, especially because the ceiling fan on the room was loud. All in all, an great place!

  • Aug 06, 2018 by amadour55

    I enjoyed my stay. I especially appreciate the service and curtesy offered by the staff. The view overlooking the ocean was majestic. I will tell all my friends and family about your location. This survey has been the most troubling part of my experience.

  • Aug 05, 2018 by Snomanee

    We had an excellent time. Location is good and convenient. Service is good. Swimming pool and restaurant are conveniently located. Room is clean, sleep was pleasant. We had an excellent time. We arrived at 230 but they didn't allow check in.

  • Aug 05, 2018 by rlmoffett...

    Anniversary Trip - this was one extra night following our week in Monterey. The stop in Pismo broke up the ride home to San Diego. View from the room was better than expected. The grounds were pretty and the sunset spectacular. The best part was being able to hear the waves hitting the shore from our room. It was great!

  • Aug 05, 2018 by sparkythi...

    The ocean view rooms were great. Really big. Staff at front desk were all really friendly. The restaurant is poor. Staff going through the motions and food not great. But there are plenty options elsewhere. Hotel is recommended.

  • Aug 04, 2018 by Silvia S

    Flew to CA for a short weekend trip for a relative's bday. Selected Spyglass Inn as it looked great on the website. Was looking forward to comfortable, well appointed rooms. Sad to say, as soon as we drove up, I was hugely disappointed! Feels like a Holiday Inn. I've given it an average rating, which is generous, because of the staff we encountered and the view of the ocean by the 3 fireplaces in the back of the property. Loved the walk along the walkway area that goes straight to beach. It's definitely time for a refresh of this hotel! Note: Breakfast at the Spyglass Restaurant was good. Staff was clear that both businesses have separate owners. We will not stay here again.

  • Aug 04, 2018 by megmoon55...

    We got an unexpected upgrade to a beach veiw room for FREE! Everything was great, although it would've been better if we had AC it got really hot in the room! But the pool was great, the veiw was amazing and love the fire pits and restaurant onsite! Love staying here!

  • Aug 02, 2018 by Paulrache...

    We were given an ajoing room which with two teenagers was ideal. Excellent location and we dined in the restaurant and had lovely meal whilst watching an amazing sunset would recommend staying here to anyone.

  • Aug 02, 2018 by sacko2018

    Great location. The beds were comfortable. They had a nice frontal beach walk area with access down a few hotels to a private beach. The large TV in the room was awesome. The restaurant had two great servers. Desiree & Shamiah.

    Nice manager and great customer service thank you soooooo much to upgrade our room, very quite clean, we did not stay for long but the ocean views and nice treat from management, we will come back, Resturant next to hotel is good food.

  • Aug 02, 2018

    Very disappointed with this place for the price especially the bathroom. The bathroom wasn’t big enough to swing a cat! The staff in the lobby were very nice. The best thing about this place was the coffee. As I said before very disappointed and overpriced for this accommodation!

  • Aug 01, 2018 by Carlos M

    Great family time, Nice amenities nice views nice everything very pleased thank you Hope to see you soon maybe next year for next summer Thanks again Rooms glass clean great Would like to view mostly the weather

  • Aug 01, 2018 by Diana C

    If you are looking for a peaceful getaway where you can overlook the ocean, this is the place. The ocean view rooms look over beautifully manicured gardens with the ocean view beyond. You can sit by the outdoor fire pit while the sun goes down. The attached restaurant has excellent food. We were able to sit on our private porch and watch the pelicans fly by!

  • Jul 31, 2018 by Selita G

    We love the ocean view room, fire pits and the entire property is beautiful! We were there a few weeks ago and we are going back again next week for our last summer trip. I can't wait!!!! Our grandkids loved watching bunnies run around on the lawn area.

  • Jul 31, 2018 by Rugger Hu...

    We stayed at Spyglass in July 2018. Our room was comfortable and very clean. The office staff was friendly and helpful. We did not care for the on site restaurant, however. We went for the evening happy hour, and service was spotty, and the appetizers so so. The view from the back deck was very nice, tho. Our room had a balcony, which had a partial ocean view, which was very nice. However, the room next door's balcony was attached to ours, and we felt very uncomfortable having a conversation with the guests next door sitting literally 2 feet away from us.

  • Jul 31, 2018 by cisneross...

    The sink outside the bathroom hadn’t been cleaned. There were used plastic cups and a coffee travel mug that was there that wasn’t ours. Everything else looked clean though. The balcony was nice and the beds were comfortable.

  • Jul 31, 2018 by L5859QBka...

    Love the Spyglass Inn. Easy to get to and completely relaxing. Great views of ocean. Sitting at the fire pits was great in morning with coffee and evening with glass of wine. The restaurant is great also.

  • Jul 30, 2018 by sueK2031C...

    Our stay was wonderful! The grandchildren loved the pool, the outdoor fire pit and the restaurant. The beach was just a short walk away. Please remember to watch the sunset from the firepits! The sunrise must be spectacular also.

  • Jul 30, 2018 by Courtneyf...

    We stayed in room 242 this weekend and I just wanted to let you know of a few concerns: there seem to be leaks happening in the bathroom and around the toilet, the bathroom fan does not turn on, and the bath mirror vanity under light does not turn off (unless we couldn't find the switch, or is it meant to be a night light?). It also could be cleaner, if you look around the lower parts of the bathroom there were stains, also the caulking around the vanity could be better. Lastly the rooms do stay pretty warm even with the window open all the way and fan on, and this wasn't a hot weekend, so AC would be a nice addition to consider. I am a local, just was staying for a staycation. The service and staff were great. One time the room was cleaned they didn't replace additional coffee pods etc, but everything else was great. Just thought I'd give a little feedback, since I know the property was recently remodeled. Thanks! :)

  • Jul 29, 2018 by David B

    We paid extra for a suite upgrade. If this is the upgrade I shudder to think what the base room looks like. The carpet was filthy with stains and threads sticking out. The foot rest in front of the couch was likewise dirty. We cringed at the thought of walking barefoot. The wood trim around the wet bar was peeling. Sure the view was decent and the bathroom appeared remodeled, however the living space itself was completely unacceptable. The room was not ready at check in and when we came to the room a technician was still working on making the phone work. The electric outlets are worn and our chargers kept falling out. The receptionist, while not rude was not particularly warm either. I would NOT stay here again. For the price you can do better.

    Erick and Debbie extremely helpful and polite on phone and in person. Much appreciated. Very pleasant stay. Wanted ocean front view. Booked too late for top floor, so got ground floor where hedge partially blocked view. But still very nice. Restaurant casual with excellent view and food. Fire pits on property wonderful for warmth and socializing.

    So my wife and I were excited for a one night get away. We were celebrating our 22nd anniversary. Unfortunately, that did not happen. After we checked in, we were given our room. We were in the room for about an hour, my wife had gotten out of the shower and I was getting ready to head out for dinner. We had the door locked and someone was trying to get in our room. I quickly ran to the door to closed it. The individual apologized and the headed to the office. A few minutes later, someone called from the front desk. I was trying to explain to them what happened and they were very rude. She asked,

    Customer service was on point, quick, efficient and courteous. Our stay was perfect. Spyglass Inn is just beautiful! Our 2nd time there and will visit again. Pismo Beach is our favorite place to visit.

  • Jul 27, 2018 by Hamed S.

    Great location right in the middle of the nice beaches. The ocean view rooms are awesome with a nice view. Room was modern and clean. Will definitely stay here again.

  • Jul 27, 2018 by nritzke

    Both the locals and the staff were extraordinarily welcoming and made us regret we couldn’t stay longer. Terrific view and quiet surroundings. Our only complaint was some quirky management errors in the restaurant.

  • Jul 26, 2018 by dawnwilts...

    We stopped at Spyglass because of its location, but it turned out even better and more beautiful than we expected it to be. I would stay here again, the manager Jennifer was so extremely nice aent is on a delightful walk overlooking the coast!

  • Jul 25, 2018 by flora r r

    Great place great location will keep coming back the rooms are always nice and clean first time getting in the pool and it felt great ... take a walk in the morning can’t get a more gorgeous view or enjoy the evening by a fire pit

  • Jul 24, 2018 by emberlysm...

    Spyglass Inn sits on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The front desk staff are friendly and courteous and go the extra mile to be sure the guests feel welcome and cared for. The restaurant is nicely decorated with indoor and outdoor seating with views to die for.

    I live locally on the central coast. I love to take Staycations as often as I can. I’ve stayed at many locations along the coastline in Pismo. This location has to be a favorite. Spectacular views, comfortable beds, clean rooms, loved the fire pits on the lawn in the evening. It was a warm weekend so I wish there had been air conditioning in the room. Other than that, the stay was fantastic and I can’t wait to return!

  • Jul 24, 2018 by Geri P

    My husband and I have not been away for a while with children finally off to college, this was a perfect getaway. The staff, extremely helpful gold stars all around! I travel much around the globe for work, so when I stop and give a review, it means this property went above and beyond. Geri

  • Jul 24, 2018 by fishx5201...

    Great Stay!! Beautiful views! Awesome Sushi place across the street. Enjoyed Pismo Beach❤️ Thank you for great service. Highly recommend the Ocean View room. Worth the price. Would definitely stay here again

  • Jul 24, 2018 by DaniRBW

    Spyglass is a great place to stay. The location couldn’t get any better. The service was very helpful, anytime we needed something they brought it immediately. The rooms were clean and comfortable. A very convenient location!

  • Jul 23, 2018 by bhersh201...

    Overall our stay was a pleasant one. Two drawbacks, the first is with the restaurant, they served cold coffee to go. The second is that when turning on the hot water for the bathroom sink it seems to take too long for the hot water to flow.

  • Jul 22, 2018 by tindallfa...

    Views were breathtaking, staff and room were excellent. The food and staff at the restaurant were amazing as well. The pool was warm and clean. The room was clean and spacious. The beds were comfortable and everything had a very relaxed feel.

  • Jul 21, 2018 by Marcy S

    The view from an ocean view room was breathtaking. We were supposed to move on to an inland hotel, but decided to cancel that and stay here another day. You can't beat the view! There is the greatest little store across the street that makes wonderful sandwiches, desserts, and other foods too. We could have stayed here for a month, but the only bad was that we couldn't find an air conditioner. You don't really need it with the breeze though.

  • Jul 21, 2018 by Debra H

    When I booked your hotel room I was under the impression I was getting ada-compliant room on the first floor with an ocean view. Instead we got stuck in the middle of the complex where we couldn't see the hotel nor could my mother-in-law walk down the steps to get to the backside of the hotel to see the ocean or the flower garden. Her whole joy in these trips is that she can sit on the bench and watch the ocean. In addition to that the toilet was not ADA Compliant and too close to the wall.

  • Jul 21, 2018 by jaimecosc...

    Charming little stop in a very convenient location. Extremely sweet, courteous staff. Food was wonderful at restaurant on site. The scenery and beach was amazing. First stop on our road trip and was not disappointed

  • Jul 20, 2018 by Lions38

    Great place to stay! The location is amazing and the beds are absolutely incredible. We really enjoyed the hotel and the beach access was within walking distance. If you are looking for a reasonable hotel with a great restaurant, this is it.

  • Jul 20, 2018 by T L

    Booked a room the day before and happy to get "The Manager's Special" discount. Comfortable and quiet room (chose non-ocean view), VERY friendly staff, free AM coffee in the lobby, EASY and close parking. In the evening, took a stroll on the bluffs overlooking the ocean: Beautiful. EASY access to the freeway! Would definitely stay again!

  • Jul 20, 2018 by Alyssa N.

    Our first stay here was last night and it was great! They gave us an ocean front room on the first floor which was perfect! The view was absolutely stunning, the fire pits are awesome and they sell s'mores kits at the front desk which was great for our kids! The front desk was very friendly checking us in. We will definitely be back!

  • Jul 19, 2018 by beth c

    Love the view, we stayed in suite. King bed extremely comfortable but the bathroom in rm 211 had an overall urine smell. I smelled it when we first walked in. Even after the room was cleaned everyday but everything else was nice and clean. Love the food at spyglass resaurant and the view too! Enjoyed the nice walking path between the hotels. Nice close locationto pismo beach .

  • Jul 19, 2018 by fugoakbay

    Very good, our room 225 was perfect location. Service was good, friendly. Property was perfect with seating and ambience. It was all about our room location which was perfect, any other location would not have been satisfactory because of noise or kids poolside activity. I was here for couples retreat.

  • Jul 18, 2018 by Michelle G.

    Awesome hotel! Loved it! Amazing ocean view, great bed!! Very quiet and clean! We will definitely be back!!

  • Jul 18, 2018

    The room was great! Enjoyed the beautiful view from our balcony.. Bed was awesome! A little walk to the beach, but so worth it! My 3 year old loved it! Only complaint, nothing to do with hotel, it the restaurant. Ordered 1 oyster shooter, that was not ready when my food was ready? Then they left it next to my room door, which I wouldn't have found until the next morning had I not been going to check on it. It was one oyster is a bunch of cocktail sauce, yucky! But other than that the room was great! Definitely going again, just not eating there :)

  • Jul 18, 2018

    Only stayed for one night but was a lovely hotel in a beautiful position. Pool and hot tub were lovely as was watching the sunset around the fire pit to keep warm. Food was good as was the breakfast deal. Would definitely recommend and stay again

  • Jul 17, 2018

    I have stayed at Spyglass Inn many times and always enjoy myself. I received a text message prior to my arrival asking if I had any special requests (which I did) and found this to be a great service! Janae made sure I had what I needed. I called down two mornings when I was going out and requested my room be serviced while I was out and that was done in a timely manner. I believe I spoke to Debbie and she was very pleasant! Upon checking out I called to let front desk know we were leaving and had an emailed receipt on my arrival home! Love it here and will be back again soon!

  • Jul 17, 2018 by mwilliams...

    Great for families or even for a romantic getaway. My room had a balcony with a view of the ocean. Room was clean and spacious. Swimming pool and hot tub as well as bonfire pits stayed open until 10pm. They also have smores kits at the front desk for $10 and they have a restaurant at the premises which made it convenient. Will go back again

  • Jul 16, 2018 by Ted H

    There is no AC in the room. We have to keep the window closed because of all the noise from the neighbors, so it gets stuffy in the rooms. We can hear very clear and loud conversations like people are in the room since the walls are so thin. There are no dampers on the doors, so obviously people dont' care and slam doors shut at 7am. We can hear every neighbor on both sides, above, diagonally and at the pool. Will not stay here again.

  • Jul 16, 2018 by rcaldera5...

    this was our first stay with you, and we enjoyed it very much. The close proximity to beach, fine dining. We especially enjoyed the sunset view at the fire pits. Room are spacious, bed very comfortable

  • Jul 16, 2018 by NYtoSF99

    Fun swimming pool for whole family during late afternoon. Thank you for that. Fun campfire s'mores during sunset time. Getting breakfast over at Spyglass restaurant is okay. Dishes are so-so. Beach is about 3 buildings away, using the coastal access walkway, going down on the cliff edge. Overall experience, it was a nice simple place to go. Will go ahead next year.

  • Jul 16, 2018 by luis388

    The hotel is not worth the money. We had a basic room and paid $380. The room had no balcony, no view and had no room service. I think it's expensive. The only thing we loved was the heated pool for the kids and the restaurant they have the view is amazing and very delicious.

  • Jul 15, 2018 by Amanda G

    I loved my bed, coffee, furnishings, the view out my window, the updated bathroom, the living area, the ability to walk along cliffs and on the beach, and the breakfast in the restaurant. The restaurant service at night was slow and veggies should be seasoned and more appealing. The room was warm at night and when downstairs, one can hear every footstep above. Check in should be at 3:00, not 4:00. A microwave in the room would be lovely.

  • Jul 15, 2018 by sleppypie...

    Love this place! We have been visiting for many years now. Beautiful rooms with the view to match. If possible choose the ocean view, its amazing! Excellent customer service! Resuarant on site was delicious as always!

  • Jul 13, 2018 by J

    Very nice place but quite a few noisy families and barking pets at all hours. When this was brought to the attention of the staff we received nothing but a shrug and nervous laugh!?! I suggest trying a smaller privately run place if you want a more romantic atmosphere!

  • Jul 13, 2018 by debbielan...

    We had a wonderful time at the Spyglass Inn. A friend recommended it and I will be thanking her when I get home. Overlooking the Pacific, you wake up with The ocean at your feet. We upgraded to an ocean view and it was really worth it.

  • Jul 13, 2018 by MRodeybo

    We spent one night here while visiting the Central Coast. Loved the cookies at check in, and the fire pits. We couldn’t figure out if s’more kits are still being sold - if they are, better signage would be helpful. Also, our room had nowhere to dry wet bathing suits. A retractable clothesline over the tub would have been very helpful.

  • Jul 12, 2018 by timminate...

    A Quiet Place to Relax, my Spouse and I have stayed here 5 times now and we really have a great time, it’s centralized in Pismo with its own exit, Avila Barn and Avila Beach is close, pretty sure we are HOOKED, Thank You’s to the Friendly staff and Spyglass restaurant.

  • Jul 12, 2018 by cameron f

    This place had the smallest room on our US trip and it was the most expensive. We stayed for one night on our way to Santa Monica. Here’s my weird story: There was a light underneath the bathroom mirror that I couldn’t find the switch for. After searching for about 5mins, I went to the front desk and asked the nice fellow. He said “it’s a night light, and some people prefer a night light for kids”.... Unfortunately our bathroom had NO door on it so we were stuck with a lit room for the night. ‘Man behind desk’ suggested we shove some hand towels underneath the cabinet against the light to stop it leaking light into our room, which I did. But I was kinda worried I was going to start a fire!!! I’d suggest they at least put doors on the bathrooms. Who are they to choose whether we have a night light on or not...... Crazy when it was (roughly) $280 for the night.

  • Jul 10, 2018 by maria vit...

    Hotel modello inn molto basico. Ad eccezione delle poche camere vista oceano, le altre guardano sul parcheggio. Arredo basico e piscina nel bel mezzo del parcheggio. Pulizia media. Non vale il costo. Le foto ingannano, si immagina un hotel molto grazioso con vista su oceano ma in realtà non è cosi. Il ristorante adiacente per di più manda odore di fritto dalle 7 di mattina a sera inoltrata. Staff gentile ma...a quel punto...

  • Jul 09, 2018 by Al Gonzalez

    High priced food items. Excellent service with optional patio seating. Halibut fish and chips are delicious. Calamari is good. Ocean views are incredible.

  • Jul 08, 2018 by Veronica P.

    Not a pleasant stay at all. Very mediocre cleaning - long hairs from previous guest all through out the bathroom. Dirty sheets? Detergent they use? Bed bugs? I don't know but I itched all night in the bed. I get we're close to the water, but no AC, no bueno. No privacy on the balconies. Def wouldn't stay again.

  • Jul 05, 2018 by ds0l0m0n

    As always with hotel rooms, the website pictures make the rooms appear much larger than they really are. Our room was a two queen partial ocean view. The room was very small (400 s/f for the room/bathroom is a generous estimate). On the other hand, the cleaning/maintenance staff was very friendly and accommodating. Overall the value wasn't terrible. When travelling to Pismo you have to be prepared to accept small room sizes. That's just how it goes. Sleep quality is also really bad as there were trash pickups on Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday was at 6:45 am.

  • Jul 05, 2018 by vintina18...

    It was our first stay here. Great views and patio. Bed wasn't that comfortable. Might have been the pillows, but overall would stay here again.. loved the restuarant!! Would recommend to friends and family.

  • Jul 05, 2018 by rhondajha...

    Enjoyed staying at your amazing hotel, would be planning to stay again!! Wished we had tried you sooner, next time will try your restrarount also!!! my grandchildren enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi also!!!!

  • Jul 03, 2018 by Erika B

    I think the Spyglass Inn was a wonderful place to stay. It was close to everything. The pool was warm although there only was 1 towel left during the afternoon. The rooms were clean however the fan never went on in the bathroom. There was a really annoying

  • Jul 03, 2018 by Oscar L

    I recently stayed here with my family on a quick summer weekend getaway and had a nice stay at this hotel. It's nothing too fancy, in fact I believe it was a Best Western many years ago, so it has that type of layout but with a beach style facade. It's a short drive to downtown Pismo, which has it's positives and negatives. The rooms are your standard rooms, but with nice furniture and decor. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were fairly spacious. There was no A/C and only a ceiling fan to circulate air, so the room got a little stuffy at times. They offer some rooms overlooking the bluff and others with ocean views, but for a premium. We paid over $300 a night and got a bottom floor room near the highway with a view of the parking lot. I couldn't believe that for that price we couldn't even get a view of the ocean. There is small and relatively shallow pool (5 feet at max depth) and a hot tub. Both are heated year round to comfortable temperatures. The pool never got too crowded, despite the great weather and the hotel being at near capacity. However, they did struggle to keep the pool area stocked with fresh towels. They have a large area with three fire pits on the bluff overlooking the ocean that are great for groups and families to share a sunset or evening overlooking the ocean. We spent a very pleasant evening out there making smores and sharing laughs. There is a path along the bluff that that connects the nearby hotels and leads down to a semi private and family friendly beach. The beach is very nice, clean and has calm waves. If you go at the right times you'll be able to see the tide pools with plenty of crabs and urchins. We also saw sea otters and elephant seals. There is a restaurant on the property. We went for breakfast a couple mornings and the food was decent, but the service was slow. It wasn't even very crowded, but they were way under staffed. I felt like our waiter was also the greeter, cashier, bartender and cook. All in all it's a nice quiet family friendly hotel that's located right off 101 and a short drive to downtown Pismo and San Luis Obispo. It offers nice amenities and it's right above the ocean. My biggest complaint is the value for what we paid, but if you can find a good deal to stay here I think it's a good option.

  • Jul 03, 2018 by Julia B

    We had a wonderful time at Spyglass Inn. The location was amazing right on the Beach with a beautiful view. Close enough to easily get to Pismo, Avila Beach and surrounding areas. The rooms were clean making it nice to come back to and spend time at.

  • Jul 02, 2018 by Felicity L.

    dont go for the food fabulous views

  • Jul 01, 2018 by Alex Holt

    It's a decent hotel, had some problems with our original room and water damage/leak. We got put into a new room, on the bottom floor which didn't even have a back window, the front window was right in front of the parking lot, which wasn't pleasant with the fumes and people traffic. I'd only recommend this hotel if you're in an ocean view room , there's much better places for the price to stay in the area if you get stuck in one of their less desirable rooms. The staff was nice and I've been a frequent visitor over the years, but it's not worth the chance of getting one of these lesser rooms, so I'm going to avoid it for now, especially when you're spend 200$+.

  • Jul 01, 2018 by Alex H

    The first room we got had terrible water damage in the back, the carpet was wet through the wall, and the wall had visible damage. We then after a long road trip, got put into an even worse room. I've been staying at the Spyglass in for 10 years and have had a great experience in their ocean view rooms. This last stay has left a horrible taste in my mouth and a feeling of being completely ripped off. We weren't able to get one of those rooms. Little did I know how horrible some of the other rooms are in this establishment. I ended up spending 250$ for two nights, it was very loud and noisy, only one window right by the parking lot and near their maintenance shed, which created loud noises, and car exhaust in our room. The room was stuffy, dark (no fans, AC, or central lighting.) So we had to keep the window open and hear every visitor walk by, as well as smell every car that came up to their front office. The room itself was unacceptable for the price level, I would've rather chosen many of the other great hotels in the area for that higher price level, then this motel like experience. The room itself was in decent condition and staff is nice, but the fact they can put people in some of these rooms at that price point is disturbing, to say the least. I'm never returning to this place, after being so happy with it through the years, it breaks my heart to write this review. I'd avoid this place, at the chance of getting one of these rooms.

    Will never stay here again! Beautiful locaation but too expensive accomodations for the older building with cheap fixtures. Upstairs toilet flushing loud noise just above our bed kept us awake all night. I will discourage our club members from stopping here. The restaurant served me an Eggs Benedict that was truly a cheap inedible fake.

    If you have ever wanted to sit by a fire in the early morning and watch the fog roll out, this is the place. Situated on a cliff overlooking Pismo Beach, the view from the gardens is like looking at the coast of Ireland. The sunsets are gorgeous and the setting is so relaxing. The sound of the waves on the cliffs below is mesmerizing and you will sleep like never before! Everyone we met at the Spyglass Inn was cordial, and kind. On checking in, we received fresh baked cookies! Green apples are always in the Lobby and there is a huge chess set to while away an hour. Walks along the cliff, wine around the fire pit in the evening—this Inn cannot be beat for the best vacation ever! The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spotless! I can’t say enough good things about our stay. You just have to try the Spyglass Inn for a week-end to know that you will be coming back again and again!

  • Jun 29, 2018 by susanbeth...

    My family and I stayed here for a night during our road trip down the California Coast. We loved absolutely everything about the hotel. Check in was a breeze and included free cookies and beach toys for my kids. Our room was updated and clean with an amazing ocean view. We booked a partial ocean view, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, but is was great. We had dinner at the restaurant and walked along the water and saw the fire pits too. Beautiful and relaxing place. We can’t wait to return!

  • Jun 28, 2018 by pprzek256...

    Highly recommended. Nicely located - just a few feets form the ocean, nice ocean views. Room very clean and well furnished. Kids loved heated swiming pools and. Nearby Spyglass restaurant offering a variety of menu items.

    As Bay Area folks, my wife and I were leaning towards a couple of nights in SF at a boutique hotel, dressing up and going for dinner, seeing a show... the trip was running me $1500 or so by the 2nd night. Decided to return to the coast, so as we often like Mendocino or Pismo, we picked Pismo this time because of a quick meeting in San Jose on the way down. We've stayed at the Inn at the Cove before, but it remains pricey for a very similar environment. Called Spyglass and spoke with Jennifer who gave us great rates (as good as any discount site) on a perfect room. It's the only hotel I've stayed at with water views in which first and second floor makes very little difference, first floor made unpacking the car easier and access to the fire pits easier. We were able to return to our room for drinks, snacks etc... as needed. I even flew a kite! Room was perfect, we used the fire place a little, more ambiance than anything, the upstairs doesn't have fireplaces. We called early the day of check in and got a microwave. The front desk was helpful from my first call to Jennifer to check in with two other very friendly staffers who nursed me through my panic of making a last minute choice to go upstairs or downstairs, we stayed down stairs and loved it. Rooms have large TV, never turned on. Patio is solid, views are great. Short walk to stairs to the beach to see tide pools. If we were "sit on beach" type people it would have been great, but we just wanted to see the tide pools which we enjoyed. Not a complaint, but only thing about the hotel less than perfect... pool location, and not really anything they can do. A couple of other places have pools closer to water, better views, not just of parking lot. I'm the pool guy, my wife doesn't care... but would have no impact on decision to stay or not again. Didn't go to the restaurant, heard it was solid. We enjoyed Ventana Grill for our 20th anniversary and hit some local coffee shops and restaurants for lunch in Pismo and Avila. Didn't go to Shell Beach Brewhouse this trip but it's a great joint, try it for something easier and cheaper. Spyglass was an outstanding choice for our 20th anniversary and I expect to become regular customers now... well done!

  • Jun 27, 2018 by J Sandy

    This is a motel not a hotel. No air conditioning and the rooms are small. Our room was updated/remodeled within the last 5-6 years. We had a bottom floor and could hear the folks above us walking in their room throughout our 2 night stay. Views were great! Fire pits are a nice touch; The staff was very good! The "beach" is at least 300-400 yards away from the motel and accessed via a long stairway leading down from the cliffs. Not wheel chair accessible. Pool/spa area was very nice.

  • Jun 27, 2018 by jeff s

    We were upgraded to an ocean view room because our 3rd floor partial ocean view room was not ready at the 4 pm check out. Great customer service! Rooms are small; sliding screen door broken room 116. I was awake most of first night due to the people above us. There is no floor insulation between fllor and you could hear every foot step! It didn't help they also had kids racing around their hotel room. The fire pits are a nice touch. Disappointed the rooms didn't have AC. Very stuffy at night, even with the ceiling fan running. We had an emergency and need to check out a day before our reservation. Your staff was very kind, and did not not charge us for the night despite alerting them at 1:30 pm.

    We wanted to get away from it all but stay close to home as our daughter is expecting. We now have a new favorite place. The ambiance can’t be beat. Luxurious accommodations in a beautiful setting. We took advantage of the fire pits and enjoyed the evening outside. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

    Took family here, it's got a great heated pool and spa. Awesome views, diner/bar, fire pits. We took a stroll down the walkways, listened to the crashing waves. Stopped at a gas fire pit and spent 30 minutes in pure R&R.

  • Jun 25, 2018 by Darrin Hackney

    Stopped in for a quick adult beverage and an appetizer. We asked to sit outside on the patio since it’s so beautiful outside. We opted for the Avocado Egg Rolls. Not bad but they were a little frozen in the middle. The peanut sauce they were served with was tasty.

    The patio is wheelchair friendly.

    Server was really friendly and helpful.

    Outstanding view of the ocean.

    As a young family we traveled up the coast on a road trip and book the Spyglass Inn on Priceline. The staff was really accommodating and nice. The room's view was amazing. It also was clean and updated. The pool is in the parking lot area but was fenced in and great for our young children to swim in. I was able to take a nice run in the morning along the sidewalks connecting the hotels then down to the beach. Later my family and I walked back and played on the beautiful cliffside beach. It was very private and had great little pool to explore on the rocks. We had an great experience.

  • Jun 25, 2018 by mostlymec

    The staff was very kind and accommodating. I loved the text communication. We were allowed an extra hour to check out to allow for a big family breakfast at the Spyglass Restaurant. We had a small glitch with the billing going to my guest's card but the issue was quickly and professionally rectified. We will be back.

    Loved Spyglass Inn, the room was well appointed and modern. I was overlooking pool but had a co-worker who had a ocean-side room. Those are gorgeous! Loved the gas fire-pits at night and the restaurant next door was convenient and had a lovely deck. Great location in Pismo!

    Room was clean, easy check-in even though I was a little early. Comfortable beds, all the amenities you need. Pool was warm and so much fun for the kids. Able to text and get more towels which was easy! Free WiFi for up to 5 devices, nice balcony.

  • Jun 24, 2018 by Belgin L

    We have been coming here for 20 years, and now the deluxe oceanfront rooms are brand new! Large TVs and beautiful decor, must come here again! Breakfast at the restaurant was so delicious too! Bedding is so comfy and room #226 is great!

    This hotel is all about the setting, fabulous sea view from our room. The room is comfortable and well appointed, surprisingly though only plastic glasses and although robes were provided no slippers available! The fire pits were beautiful but are turned off at 10pm. This is pretty silly really, all the people sitting around the fire pits were quietly chatting, not making noise.

    Incredible experience!

    You'll be amazed at the beautiful seaside cliff and endless views. The property features several outdoor fire pits to provide a romantic environment for a weekend getaway.

    There are several walking trails close by that take you to different parts of Pismo and the local beach.

    The interiors of the rooms are well designed and very clean. The staff is friendly and offers complimentary coffee in the AM and snacks, including home baked cookies in the afternoon.

    If you're interested in visiting the Pismo/SLO area, this location is idea as it's walking distance to the beach and 15-20 minutes from local wineries.

    We hope to be back soon!

    I went in to get dinner and all your people walked past me for about 5 mins and not a single one said hello , acknowledged me just flat rude and they all saw me including your bar tender several times. It was after 8 and I'm sure everyone had the thought of going home I guess . I run a very large company and I know people get busy and I'm pretty patient but just don't continue to walk past me at least 7-8 times and not way someone will be with you. I had a drink and decided to get dinner at a restaurant where they acted like they appreciate your business. very rude- and i'm not a complainer and never fill these out because everyone has bad days but it shouldn't be everyone . Your morning crew night help train the night crew because I came back the next morning for breakfast and they were very friendly.

    Everyone was really nice,we enjoyed the Room very much,and the grounds are well keeped,hotel next store seem to be their employee's parking lot,loud coming and going,Smoking,hanging out,besides that enjoyable stay,will be back.

  • Jun 21, 2018 by Giullermo...

    This location is one of the top locations on the cliff in Pismo Beach. It’s corner location on the bluff makes a desirable location to hang out and have a few drinks and enjoy breathtaking sunsets. If you have kids its a perfect location to sit there and let them run around with no fear of them leaving your site. It gives you the feeling like your on some island in the pacific.

  • Jun 21, 2018 by Maurice J

    Good service, location and friendly people. Rooms are decent, had no problems. Nice beach and restaurant access (food below average). Satisfied overall...had a good time and get proximity to a variety of things to do.

  • Jun 21, 2018 by gregandju...

    We've been to Pismo many times but this was the first time at this hotel. Everything was great and we will definitely be staying here again. We had a partial view of the ocean room and we did enjoy it...The next time we will either request an ocean view room or a room on a lower floor.

  • Jun 20, 2018 by John K

    Amazing walk out of the patio onto the cliffs with an amazing view! Loved walking to the different restaurants near by. Would definitely recommend for a romantic get away! Dont know if the kids are recommended with the ocean front as patio is shared with neighbors.

  • Jun 20, 2018 by almaavila...

    I always enjoy the stay and its always clean and neat our first choice when we visit ! ! We really enjoy the visit!! Thank you keep the awsome job ... next visit will be there!! The view was just amazing!!

  • Jun 20, 2018 by helensims...

    Lovely large room the bed is so big thought I would have to run and jump to get on and I am over 5 feet tall. There is a kitchen area, fridge, coffee maker I used it to run the hot water for tea. Ice machine not far from the room.. In the grounds lovely seating area with fire pits there is a restaurant and bar .Seating outside the bar on outside decking with patio heater nice to sit watching the waves. there is also a pool but did not use as only stayed 1 night on a coach tour all in all a nice place I would stop here again

  • Jun 19, 2018 by 689jerryw

    this place was great the room was super and there was a fire pity right out side the patio door that over looked the ocean, had a little hiccup in our room and the staff remedied the problem, great place I recommend it.

  • Jun 18, 2018 by naijhi

    The staff blew me away. In particular the assistant manager Debbie who went out of her way to address some issues we had during our stay. Because of this, I'm looking forward to a return trip to Syglass Inn. It's rare these days to find a business that truly listens to their clients and works hard to gain their continued patronage. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed. We loved sitting by the fire pits (a great feature) overlooking the beach. The restaurant was great and super friendly staff. I wouldn't hesitate to return and would recommend this hotel to anyon who asked.

    The room was nice. The upstairs neighbors must have been acrobats training for their next day show. I know that it is not the fault of the hotel but put kids down stairs. They jumped around until after midnight. Kind of old as well.

  • Jun 17, 2018 by Margaret...

    We stayed at the Spyglass Inn as part of our trip along the coast. What an amazing hotel, the staff we so friendly and super efficient . My brother and sister-in-law were also with us on the trip and when we arrived at the hotel they had upgraded our rooms to ocean view. Wow what a view. At check in they had just finished a fresh batch of cookies we just couldn't resist. The room was large spotlessly clean. My only regret was we didn't get to stay longer. I would most definitely recommend this hotel.

  • Jun 17, 2018 by wrenw00d

    We are driving the coast from San Francisco to San Diego and this was the best hotel so far. We were upgraded to a ocean view room and what a view. It was good to be able to watch the sunset sitting on the balcony.

  • Jun 17, 2018

    Great location! Well kept properly. It was our second time at this property. Since it was graduation weekend rates were twice the normal rate! We had to be there for a family memorial service. Wished we could have been there to enjoy all Spyglass has to offer.

  • Jun 17, 2018 by dperri970...

    My husband and I stayed here for one night. We were provided with excellent service from the moment we checked in. The room was comfortable, with a fireplace, very comfortable bed, and great water pressure in the shower. We walked out the patio to outdoor fire pits that turned on with a flick of a button. And the views are spectacular! I took a walk with some coffee along the boardwalk in the morning, and reflected on how great life is!

  • Jun 16, 2018 by splourd

    We had a brief but very enjoyable stay. Sliding glass door open and the sound of the surf to send you to sleep. Nice heated pool, smores by the fire and a very cozy room. We loved it. Our daughter loved the little bunnies that were hopping around and we had a great walk down to and along the beach.

  • Jun 16, 2018 by the4rasca...

    Cute hotel, great location, beds weren’t great - not the most comfy, probably time to be replaced. Rooms were clean, pool was great, the WiFi was pretty much unusable - so slow we didn’t even bother connecting.

  • Jun 15, 2018 by Diane R

    We love the Spyglass Inn! Staff very friendly and accommodating. We had an Oceanview room and sorry we were only staying two nights. Beautifully appointed rooms and lovely balcony to sit and enjoy the view that rivals Hawaii! Firepits are a nice gathering place in the evening. The restaurant serves a great breakfast and wonderful staff. At check in, you are given fresh chocolate chip cookies and midweek a discount for breakfast. I asked about group rates for a year and a half out and by that evening received a quote! Will definitely go back because Shell Beach is an oasis--great restaurants, wineries and a beautiful place to be!!!

  • Jun 15, 2018 by daneezamo...

    We have stayed at the Spyglass Inn a few times and enjoy our stay each time. Their friendliness is matched by the beauty of the grounds. Hoping the next time to stay in an ocean front room. We will stay again soon.

  • Jun 14, 2018 by johnfx01

    The Spyglass inn is so welcoming and friendly that you start to relax straight away then you done in their seafood restaurant where everyone is helpful and friendly with gorgeous food the views are amazing as you watch the sun go down either from the restaurant or one of the fire pits jf it's chilly then to top it off you sink into the most comfortable beds o have ever slept in it was heaven

  • Jun 14, 2018 by Anne Mari...

    pool was great, clean snd nicely heated with hot tub. gas firepits with beatiful ocean views. Friendly staff, great locale and a short trip to town and beach. Nice balconies with newer furniture. Can buy smores makings at office

  • Jun 13, 2018

    My husband and I had a wonderful time at this beautiful hotel on the ocean. Everyone was friendly and accommodating. Special thanks to Meesh and Mitch for making us feel extra special. The new text-to-front-desk system is super convenient, allowing us to make requests at any time, and resulted in 100% response and desired results every time. We'll recommend your hotel to all of our friends making trips along the CA coast! Hope to visit again soon.

  • Jun 13, 2018 by shawnafli...

    The rooms are very nice and the staff is super friendly. My husband and I were very impressed. We were even surprised with an upgraded ocean view room and it was just breathtaking. We took our kids but we can't wait to go back just the 2 of us!!

  • Jun 13, 2018 by rcd47

    We're glad we chose an ocean view room at the Spyglass Inn for our 2-day stay in Pismo Beach. The room was large and nicely decorated, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the view from our balcony was magnificent! We loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the waves. The staff was friendly, and check-in/check-out were a breeze.

  • Jun 13, 2018 by cacn56

    I had requested a room with a walk in shower when I made the reservation several months prior to my arrival. I also called to reconfirm this again. I am handicapped and unable to get in a tub. I got to my room and it was a tub. When I called to the office the man said he'd see if there was the room I was promised available. I waited an hour, calling back a couple times to be told

  • Jun 13, 2018

    I was pleasantly surprised. Our room was ocean view and even though the hotel is close to 101 we only heard the ocean. Large towels a plus. Staff were great. Gorgeous view, comfortable bed although I thought the sheets we're scratchy. Needs a sun umbrella on the patio.

  • Jun 12, 2018 by RubenPere...

    This location was absolutely beautiful. The view was perfect. From the private patio & fire pits, the set up of the hotel couldn't be any better. The room itself was nice and clean & not to mention the flawless landscaping job. Great job Spyglass Inn, the wife and I definitely enjoyed ourselves and will be back!

  • Jun 11, 2018 by jeannef18...

    My business trip was very enjoyable due to my lovely hotel room, comfortable bed, clean room, ocean view and the restaurant adjacent to the hotel serving delicious food. I'll return for sure! Thank you.

  • Jun 11, 2018 by Maggie A

    We have now stayed at this hotel three times in the past six months. We live locally, but love that is provides a nice getaway where we don't have to travel too far. It is close enough to Pismo to head into town for dinner and entertainment, but it is removed enough to enjoy some peace and quiet. We have enjoyed staying here both with our children, as well as just as a couple. We especially love the pool and spa, outdoor fire pits in the evening and early morning, and the walking path the overlooks the cliffs. We highly recommend this hotel for any family or occasion.

  • Jun 11, 2018 by 6joey5

    Perfect anniversary weekend getaway. Room had a beautiful ocean view, the room and beds very clean and comfortable. Will most definitely book a room in future. Would recommend to friends. Friendly staff.

  • Jun 11, 2018 by mdknibbs

    It was a perfect weekend. We all had a great time. The Hotel was in good condition and kid frendly. The pool was heated to 87 and we used it. I am not happy that my review has to be 200 worlds. Other than that and that the internet was not great it was a good stay.

  • Jun 11, 2018 by dkcaines5...

    Great service! The bathroom sink was slow to drain and the right side of the closet door was stuck shut. We notified the front desk upon departure and they indicated it would be promptly repaired. Great service!

  • Jun 10, 2018 by 419dianna

    clean, cute rooms, friendly staff, love the complimentary coffee and water in the lobby. great view of ocean. only downside was no air conditioning in the room, it got stuffy even with the sliding door open.

  • Jun 10, 2018 by 251sherit

    I look forward to this stay every few months when I come out to Central cal for business. It is a beautiful break in my busy work life and an opportunity to just breathe and take in the overwhelmingly beautiful scenery that Spy Glass Inn offers. The rooms are beautiful,l comfortable and first class. I always enjoy the evening with a fire in the fire place, a glass of wine, the sounds of the ocean and the view. And always always always a smore's kit at the fire pits at sunset. This is absolutely one of my favorite places to unwind.

  • Jun 09, 2018 by arthuang0...

    I was in Spyglass Inn Pismo Beach around 2 and half weeks ago and there's a reason I brought my wife back this time. It's simply a incredibly beautiful place to be. It started with the wonderful people we met when you check in whom made everything easy. They even texted me the afternoon before I arrived to see if there's anything they could prepare ahead for us. We have booked an ocean view room and the view from the room was breath taking. There's a walk way outside you could walk, listening to birds and waves. The room is modern enough. I mean, it's not grand but it's just right for me. I mean, if it's any more modern would probably take away the beauty outside than adding to the experience. It's a good place to be. Oh, one last thing, the bed... my goodness, it gives me the best sleep!! It's not on Avila or Pismo but it's perfect where it is. Pick here!:)

  • Jun 09, 2018 by tbos76307...

    Rode our Harley over for a one night getaway. The hotel is wonderful! We did find a one hundred dollar bill on the floor at check-in. Gave it to the hotel thinking that someone who just checked in might have dropped it. No word back on return to rightful owner. Not sure what the hotel did with it.

  • Jun 09, 2018 by tomngeri3...

    Great location to travel north or south n east for wine tasting, touring n great restaurants This is our 2nd stay n will ne back again for sure with friends for wine food and fun with friends. Great views!

  • Jun 08, 2018 by Shanghype...

    My husband and I very much enjoyed our recent stay at the Spyglass Inn, conveniently located right off the 101. Our room was quite spacious and very comfortable, with everything we needed: wi-fi, fridge, coffee maker, bathrobes, iron & ironing board, TV, plus a very nice onsite bar and restaurant. We made good use of the pool and hot tub too -- it was chilly during our stay, but the pool was nicely heated and not at all crowded when we went in the evening. Staff were friendly and courteous. The property is well maintained, with plenty of free parking available. We would definitely stay there again if we are in the area.

    I’m taking the review so I guess my secret is out. This is my favorite place to stay and we have been coming here for years. The property is well kept and beautiful. It’s always been quite, maybe we’ve been lucky on that part

  • Jun 06, 2018 by chicoread...

    nice location for the price, pool was nice and warm. We enjoyed the stay. why does this have to be 200 characters to submit this review. Trip advisor needs to fix this review system so you don't have to submit 200 characters.

  • Jun 06, 2018 by kit48kat

    Just a weekend getaway not too far from home. Awesome front desk service and the room was beautiful. The food was good at the restaurant but we mostly enjoyed the deck outside with the beautiful view.

  • Jun 06, 2018 by L1846OBjo...

    The hotel is in a great location, and the room was as expected and clean. Everything about my stay was great, except the bed. I could not get a great nights sleep due to the extra soft beds. Also, no air conditioning in the room, but you probably would never need it considering it's right on the coast.

  • Jun 04, 2018 by Lori J

    Our family has been enjoying the property for over 40 yrs. Dad brought us here as kids and now I bring my spouse here for our own get away retreat. Always a quiet beautiful place, very hospitable and friendly staff. Already making plans for a return trip. Thank you again for helping us to relax and get some much needed rest.

  • Jun 04, 2018 by dreamysr0...

    I’m a big researcher when planning vacations. I like certain ambiance and various boxes checked. This place hit the mark. PERFECT views; fall asleep w door open to sounds of waves crashing. Wake up to gorgeousness. Discounted guest breakfast at on site restaurant was great. Perfectly located for adventures to SLO and other areas. Night time wine by fire pit. Lovely walking paths all around. Nearby cute little coffee shops. Downtown has some fun little locations. But everything in area shuts down early FYI. No late night dinners etx. Which worked for our day-trippin, early exhausted nights in. Did I mention the pillows? To DIE for. Hotel is R&R and beauty all the way. This actually was my second choice, first choice up the way in Cambria did t have vacancy. What a stroke of luck we wound up here. Actually went to check out other place and SO GLAD we wound up at Spyglass instead. Will ABSOLUTELY return again if in area. Oh, ps. It’s a MUST to upgrade to ocean front room.

  • Jun 04, 2018 by miname63

    Nice, clean rooms. Wonderful location. Mitch was AWESOME!! Perfect weather and the fire pits were a nice touch!! Beds were so comfortable I didn't want to get out of them. Fresh baked cookies & green apples were a very nice touch. Thank you fir an excellent stay!!

    It's our second time in Pismo beach after visiting 9 years ago. This hotel exceeding our expectations. The rooms were great and the beds were so comfortable. Lots of space compared to UK hotels. The tv in the room was huge however we never even switched it on. For the sunset we went and sat around the firepit and enjoyed the warmth along with the great sunset. Lots of wildlife about which was great for our two little boys. Short ride into Pismo downtown with lots of stores and the beach of course

  • Jun 04, 2018 by lostnthes...

    From the moment we arrived this hotel felt like complete luxury. There were fresh baked cookies and apples in the lobby and the manager surprised us with a complimentary ocean view upgrade. The room itself was pristine and had the most stunning view. Thank you for a most relaxing stay. We can’t wait to come back again.

  • Jun 03, 2018 by Andrew B.

    The staff, especially Mitch, were extremely friendly and helpful.  We thoroughly enjoyed the access to fire pits where we enjoyed a bottle of wine and the beautiful sunsets. The rooms are plenty spacious and well kept too.

  • Jun 03, 2018 by jpederson...

    This is my favorite hotel in Pismo. I have never stayed anywhere else due to the cleanliness, the friendliness of the staff and of course the view! I love the addition of the fire pits also, great touch!

    Had a room overlooking the ocean. Second story, so nothing was blocking our view. Rooms are a good size and the beds are super comfy. Keurig machines in every room. Bath robes are available to use during your stay. They have an adjoining restaurant with a bar. Say hi to the bartender Jeremiah. He makes a wicked bloody Mary. Definitely will come back here.

  • Jun 02, 2018 by Eric A.

    Had a issue with cleanliness , but your manager was great she took care of the issue very quickly took $50 off on bill.and She made us feel very comfort at our stay at your Inn. We enjoy our stay. When were in the area, will sure stay at your Inn.

    The stay was great and would tell all about it, and would recommend to all, we definitely will come back to stay, a great restaurant with a great view and great food,a great view of the ocean and easy access anywhere, easy parking,nice area to walk and the fire pits are really cool, very nice and friendly people working there and staying there very enjoyable

  • Jun 02, 2018 by okaneddj

    What an experience, to open curtains and view the ocean from our bed! The view was spellbinding. We try experience this at least once a year. Absolutely beautiful! Also enjoyed sitting by fire pit and watching sun set.

  • Jun 01, 2018 by Daveperry...

    Get a room with an ocean view of possible. Beautiful views, plant life, and cozy fire pits just steps off your balcony/patio area. Very comfortable bed and furniture to rest and relax on. The discounted breakfast at the restaurant attached to the hotel was very good for the price. Our experience may have different if we’d had a room over looking the parking lot. Overall great stay, and would return in the future.

  • Jun 01, 2018 by amsamslee

    Don't be fooled by the proximity to the freeway or the exterior. The rooms and breezy and modern. They are quiet with nice anemities such as bathrobes. Comfortable beds! The firepits outside are romantic, private, and very warm! The front desk people are courteous and friendly! Special thanks to Eric for making this stay memorable for my mom on her 79th birthday!

  • May 31, 2018 by JeanneB75

    We loved the spacious room, the ocean view, and the friendly staff. We also really enjoyed the promenade that stretches along at least three properties overlooking the ocean! The fire pits were lovely - they offer s’more kits at the front desk.

  • May 30, 2018 by Maritza L.

    Checked in today and disappointed to find out that the beach access is closed nearest to the hotel. I called the front desk to let them know it was disappointing as that is one of the reasons we chose this hotel. I was told "I could check out if I wanted to" by front desk lady named Meesh. Very disappointing response, I think this should not be advertised and they should let you know when you book the hotel.

  • May 30, 2018 by emmalou81...

    My first stay at Spyglass Inn was impressive. Fifteen minutes after checking into our room we realized there was going to be a bachelorette party in the room above us. We'd been hoping for a quiet stay, so I phoned the front desk and nicely asked if they had a similar room a bit further from the party. Not only did the person at the desk say "no problem!" but a hotel employee was at our door with the keys to a new room within 5 minutes. I have stayed in dozens of hotels and that kind of service is rare! I was stunned and appreciative. So we moved three rooms down to a gorgeous king-bed room with a view of the ocean and a fireplace (just like our first room). Our stay was relaxing and restorative. Loved the fire pits at night.

  • May 30, 2018 by thackreyc...

    Had another great stay at the Spyglass Inn! Room was clean, bed was comfy and we were right by the pool so the location was great for our daughter. The staff was super helpful every time we needed something. And the housekeeping was amazing!

  • May 30, 2018 by towersbea...

    This is a great hotel with such nice and accommodating staff to welcome you and help you through out your stay. I would highly recommend staying here for any occasion! The pool, jacuzzi and fire pits are a great amenity (and the pool is heated which is amazing!).

  • May 29, 2018 by M S

    A little cute Inn, that has a home away home feeling. We only stay over night heading to LA. I definitely I want to come back and try their pool and their room with the view. I think you get the value of the price. The only down fall it is out dated a little and the room, we have was closer to the highway, so we hear the cars all night long. The wall is thin, so we hear others. As long there's no loud party going on, I think it's fairly to say it's ok. But if you want a super quiet room etc then this not the place.

    I love staying at The Spyglass. However, 2 out of 4 times we have had problems with our room This time the shower head would not work!! While it isn't the end of the world, I would expect everything to be in working order in this quality of an establishment. Also there was a fair amount of dirt/dust on the plug-in in the bathroom. :(

    We were in town for a wedding and enjoyed out stay at the Spyglass Inn. The views were spectacular from our room and the stay was very nice. The room was cozy and had a fireplace that added to the atmosphere.

  • May 29, 2018 by Anneli R

    Trevlig personal som bemötte oss, vi är återkommande, det är jätte sköna sängar, lite lyhört men klart bo vänligt för 1 natt. Finns även liten mat/vin affär nära. Tanka bilen är rakt över gatan , samt trevlig restaurang med otroligt vacker utsikt...

    Growing up in the area I’ve always wanted to stay at the Spyglass Inn . I finally got that chance. It was amazing. A real treat for my teen boys, to stay at a beach hotel. Great sleep then a beautiful hike on the beach in the morning.

  • May 28, 2018 by chariswil...

    My husband and I decided to take an impromptu trip to Pismo Beach and were pleasantly surprised by the staff and the hotel room. Beautiful scenery and view at the restaurant as well. Looking forward to our next trip!

  • May 27, 2018 by brendayam...

    The weather in May 2018 was great! The bed in our room was comfortable and warm for the chilly evenings. Plus, Spyglass Inn is located within minutes of several other beaches and downtown Pismo Beach. Excellent and professional staff made our visit enjoyable. We've stayed at SG over the last twenty years and have always been delighted. Only thing I would suggest is to add a small microwave in each room. The restaurant food and view were fantastic too.

  • May 26, 2018 by h0llyw00d...

    My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Spyglass Inn. The staff was very accomodating for our special day. The views from our room were beautiful. We highly recommend this hotel!! Can't wait to come back.

  • May 26, 2018 by 6062smith

    Couldn't have made a better choice for a peaceful getaway in a popular tourist destination. Located between Pismo Beach and Avila Beach, we were close to everything, but far away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy areas. Very nice room overlooking the bay, grounds were beautiful, staff was very pleasant and helpful. Sitting on our balcony and watching the sunset --- can't beat that. Even if you don't have an ocean view room, there are areas to sit and enjoy the million dollar view. Be sure to also visit DePalo and Sons Italian Deli and Store adjacent to the hotel. We got breakfast and dinner items several times (incredible selection of prepared food and great choices for beer and wine!) and enjoyed a quiet meal on our balcony with beautiful waterfront views...we will definitely return!

  • May 25, 2018 by robram8

    Staff very friendly from front desk to maint and all other staff. Only problem were heavy foot steps in upstairs room. Food and service was great. Will be enjoying a romantic get away soon. Very nice views.

  • May 24, 2018 by Jerry W.

    so we check in, the people are nice enough, we get to our room its really nice, great views and a fire pit, so cool, patio furniture the works, there was a little hiccup, the sofa sleeper needed help, so we called down to the front desk and they made it right, that's important to me if there is a problem and you make it right, how ever you do it, a bottle of wine, an air mattress, or even breakfast at the restaurant, do what every you can to satisfy the customer with in reason, and wow these guys did just that, they made it right. thanks Guys you did a great job. we will be back

  • May 22, 2018 by jstanwats...

    Great Facility in a Great Setting overall, Staff Hospitality was very good...…..maintenance details in the bathroom of our room, ie; caulking and paint, displayed budget over workmanship to be the guiding factor of repairs that had been made over the years. Outside that, I highly recommend this site.

  • May 22, 2018 by mmillis36...

    The first activity we hoped to do upon arrival was walk to the beach. Reservation had said the path was accessible but that was not true. The ocean side of your property is very pretty, the back side not so much with the gas station across the street from your lobby and your garden view rooms not so great. The rooms appeared larger in your pictures than they actually were and were a bit outdated. Finally the restaurant needs a complete overhaul from the greeters to the food. If you get there to late to sit outside the inside is small and unappealing and the food is average. So all in all we were disappointed in our stay at Spyglass Inn.

  • May 22, 2018 by Nevpalm

    This property is perfectly located in Shell Beach. A short drive to Pismo Pier or Avila Beach. The rooms are clean and very up to date. The beds are so comfortable too. We spent a few hours at the properties fire pits which look out over the Pacific Ocean with no obstructions. The staff was most helpful and even had coffee and complimentary cookies upon check in. We ate at the onsite restaurant for breakfast, which was delish.

  • May 21, 2018 by Arthur H.

    I stayed in this hotel last night and tonight. The standard room was very standard but the bed... was amazingly comfortable. The staff at the front were all wonderful. Today, I have an ocean front room... guys, this is why you are here. The room is generously spacious, the outside balcony faces right at the ocean with path ways that are splendidly private. It just doesn't get better than this. Thank you Debbie and all the wonderful staff!

  • May 21, 2018 by nancygmil...

    Rating would have been better if we had housekeeping services everyday with at least clean towels and the trash taken. The room was cleaned one day out of four. It was cleaned after the first night then none.

  • May 21, 2018 by Rory H

    Great location! Unfortunately, we were the only ones in our group without an ocean view. Rooms are somewhat dated. Staff was excellent. There is an awesome deli next door Depalo & Sons. Also Shell Beach Brew House has great atmosphere and food/beer.

  • May 21, 2018 by Paul O

    We had a real good time, we stayed in one of the rooms with ocean view and really enjoyed it. Worth it to pay a little more for the balcony with beautiful view and sunset. very clean hotel. Was surprised that there was no air conditioner though. The only thing I don’t recommend is the restaurant , service took to long, food was not good and my meal didn’t even came complete.

  • May 19, 2018 by dahmann44

    I can't say enough good things about Spyglass. The staff was great and very helpful. The first room was great but we soon found out there was an issue with the toilet. The young lady at the front desk quickly moved us to another room without a blink. GReat stay

  • May 19, 2018 by Erica A.

    So we're here for a wedding the rooms are nice an clean we got here at night an our family stayed out by the fire pits all night we had alot of fun i would like to stay here again the beach side is beautiful an the restaurant is so good

  • May 18, 2018 by nancyvasq...

    The ocean view rooms are amazing! I have stayed in several Pismo Beach hotels on the ocean but the Shell Beach ocean front hotels outshine them all. The view, the restaurants and amenities are the best.

  • May 16, 2018 by mrclubmak...

    Had room 222, Great room. Took advantage of the firepits behind the hotel, awesome. Staff was excellent. Bed was very comfortable. First time to stay here. We will be back and will recomend to friends.

  • May 15, 2018 by Rosemary Ceja

    The hotel is located near the ocean and has beautiful views. The ocean front room I stayed in was very nice with a fireplace and a comfy bed. The staff was very accomadating and helpful. The restaurant next door had great food.

  • May 15, 2018 by msedelste...

    My husband and I started our honeymoon at the Spyglass Inn. The manager was so sweet and surprised us with a free upgrade to a full ocean view room and a bottle of pellegrino. It was such a wonderful gesture!

  • May 14, 2018 by antenet20...

    My Daughter & I enjoyed your hotel, loved the ocean view. Our complaints are there are no hooks or towel bars in the sink area, no place to hang wet bathing suits and no place for towels. A few extra hooks, even the kind that go over the door would be so helpful & better lighting in the sink area is well needed. Other than that we loved the hotel.

  • May 14, 2018 by rajeshpat...

    The Staff is not honest with customers and they plainly lie to customer face...I canceled my booking in the mid of the stay and moved to another hotel...I would never stay at this hotel again. I asked for an upgrade to Ocean view and I was told that it was fully booked..I offered to pay for the extra but they told me not available..when I threatened to cancel my booking then they told hotels.com they they will give me free upgrade... This hotel cares only about money and has no respect for customer requests...they forget that if customer is not happy they move on even if they have to pay extra...

    great views. fire pits a nice touch. staff was very accommodating. quite . a little disappointed with the appetizers the servings were huge but the quality and preparation needed work. did not have any other meals.

  • May 11, 2018 by Michele Anderson

    Already gave this a rating. Please refer to previous post. I will note for the record that I was beyond displeased. If you're going for food hey, forget about it it's going to be dry overcooked or cold. If you're going for the view forget about it because you don't get to go on the patio to enjoy The View. If you're going for atmosphere you're going to be treated in a Curt and discourteous manner. You'll be made to feel like you have Disturbed the wait staff. Other patrons what few there are will take precedence over you. Especially if you're sitting at the bar! Will not go here again. Would not recommend this place again. I think the word disgusted by the whole experience would be appropriate.

  • May 08, 2018 by 120joyce

    Your rooms are beautiful but I have one suggestion. We did not have enough Light in our room to make it comfortable in the evening or during the day when the drapes were drawn. Perhaps two or more lamps in the room would have made the difference. We will visit again!

  • May 08, 2018 by johnborks...

    Check in was quick and friendly. We loved staying at Syglass. Room was great. Walk above the Ocean offered a beatiful Ocean View. - We appreciated the $6.96 breakfast. The Eggs & Sausages were great but, the pancakes tasted like cardboard.

  • May 08, 2018 by clewis93

    3rd floor quieter(no people in rooms above as is top floor), but the rooms seem to let in a fair amount of outside noise. Bed was very comfy, room was pretty and clean, nice view of the ocean. Also nice little patio, shaded to sit outside! There are a few flights of stairs you need to haul your luggage up. there may be a ramp or elevator somewhere, but we didn't see/use it.

  • May 08, 2018 by gionnarog...

    From the staff to the pillows everything is excellent! 5 star rating no doubt! Beach access, next to the freeway, and super close to down town Pismo. This is my family's favorite spot, that we will always come back to !

  • May 08, 2018 by travelswi...

    We stayed three nights here and were disappointed to find that we had no view, as we thought we had reserved a room with a view. Then we discovered that the walls are paper thin. A family with small children arrived about 11:00 pm and moved in upstairs form us. The noise was deafening. My husband called the front desk a number of times as it got later and later and the noise never abated. And they were up again at 6:00 am--it was a nightmare! Invest in some insulation and soundproofing!!

  • May 08, 2018 by ktah1999

    We only stayed one night, but it was a great stay. It was easy to park near our room, the room was clean and tidy, and breakfast at the restaurant was delicious. Friendly staff, nice location. We'd stay here again.

  • May 08, 2018 by solmadhat...

    The room was great and the staff were as well. The food was not up to par at all though. I had the steak and it was a poor quality cut of beef and my vegetables were raw,and cold, carrot, zucchini and cauliflower

  • May 07, 2018 by bklavon

    Service was excellent. The improvements in the landscape (paver walkways) and cliff fence added to the ambiance. The room was neat and clean. The housekeeping and front desk service were excellent. On the negative side, one of the cabinets didn't open or close properly (broken hinge). The bi-fold closet door was difficult to close because the doorknobs were not mounted in the proper place.

  • May 07, 2018 by Marcella...

    Friendly service from start to finish. Brought the family and booked two rooms. Decided to stay here because we have had quite a few lovely meals at their restaurant when we pass through town but have never stayed an the hotel. The rooms are clean the service was prompt and the food at their restaurant was great. We had breakfast there one morning. It's in a great location and the path that stretches from Spyglass to The Cliffs is AMAZING. The only problem we encountered was they don't have elevators. I had my 91 year old Grandmother with me and she uses a cane. They were quick to offer to change our rooms.

  • May 07, 2018 by klein26

    This was our first trip to Pismo Beach and it was not disappointing. The staff at Spyglass Inn are very friendly and the restaurant staff are equally inviting. The rooms, although a little dated, are very comfortable. We would come here again!

  • May 05, 2018 by Chris K

    For a motel located on the road side, it’s excellent. For a 300usd a night hotel... hummm... not really worth it. The pictures on booking and Expedia look amazing. These guys have invested in a good photographer. But it looks and feels like a motel. So unless that’s what you are looking for.. Oh yeah, the pool: hahaha. It’s a joke. It’s heated. And that’s all I can say about it. Now having said all that, They have fantastic views over the sea, so book a sea view room if you have to stay here. The restaurant is meh, the rooms are clean but rather dark with low ceilings. I am not thrilled. The hotel next door looks much better and, if I had booked at the right time, would have even been cheaper. The internet speed is abysmal (2-3mbps). Yet the view is amazing. So I’ll enjoy it. And swallow my pride for booking the wrong thing...

  • May 04, 2018 by Oscar L.

    This is the third time staying at Spyglass Inn. The service and rooms are always top tier. There are many other hotels in the area but as far as location this one is the best. Mitch at the lobby was so helpful from the time we got there to our check out time, really deserves a raise! Definitely recommend the king room with fireplace and an ocean view! You won't regret it.

  • May 03, 2018 by Sandy M

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Spyglass Inn! We booked an ocean front room on the second floor and it was so worth the extra $ Sitting on the balcony and looking at the amazing view was wonderful! The room was great and the bed was super comfy too! We Loved our stay!

  • May 03, 2018 by MariaRose...

    Great relaxing hotel. Been there several times. Fire pits in back overlooking ocean. No problem with my maltese service dog! Spyglass restaurant attached to it. Very convenient. Service great. The front desk pleasant and helpful

  • May 03, 2018 by gusgarvin

    A wonderful way to end the day is looking out at the ocean from the deck of a room from Spyglass Inn. The staff was friendly and helpful providing directions. Breakfast in the restaurant was fine. The bed was great.

  • May 02, 2018 by amnaimo

    staff was friendly and helpful. our room had a great partial ocean view and the location of the property is close to a lot but not in the middle of anything. we did short trips to Avila, SLO and into Pismo. best value around!!

  • May 01, 2018 by Pete S.

    If you're looking to enjoy some scenery, book a room with an ocean view. Without, you'll be looking out at the parking lot. The room was clean and priced fairly for the location and amenities. The restaurant connected to the hotel looked somewhat dingy and out of date. It has a great view and is a short walk from any room, but that's the only real plus to eating there.

  • Apr 30, 2018 by Brad Vorhees

    Very nice experience and very reasonably priced. Haley at the restaurant was SO welcoming, the food was great and very reasonably priced, Mitch at the hotel desk was REALLY nice, and the view and weather can't be beat. Will return!

  • Apr 30, 2018 by graceh715

    The Room was not very clean upon check-in. Notice urine stain on the toilet seat. The room is not sound proofed. Can hear everything from next rooms/even the room below. The location of the inn is very good and beautiful.

  • Apr 30, 2018 by rachaelm5...

    Great location, beautiful grounds. Very close to the ocean and a playground for our children. We enjoyed our stay and will stay again. Love the breakfast deal in the morning at the restaurant as well!

  • Apr 30, 2018 by France F

    Everything was handled with such wonderful care. Our reservation, check-in, the room and check-out. Eric was extremely friendly and informative. And the lovely woman who checked us out was sweet as well. We loved the view, the grounds and the fire pits! The text msging before and during our stay was great as well. Thank you for our lovely one-day stay-cation!

  • Apr 29, 2018 by Will B

    We stayed here for one night in April 2018. The location of the hotel is perfect as it’s right on the cliffs above Shell Beach and also right off highway 101 so easy to access. Our room (305) was a partial ocean view and we could had great views from the balcony. The property has a few gas fire pits out on the cliffs with several chairs at each pit. They are great for the cool evenings! The bed was very comfortable and everything in the room was updated and clean. We loved this place!

  • Apr 28, 2018 by Steph M.

    Super comfortable beds, remodeled rooms, great view from the 2nd floor and lovely wine glasses available in the room. Basic patio furniture for a casual hang out on the patio. The front desk feels a bit older but they remodeled it really well! I slept like a baby with the window breeze and beds! The other reviews made me hesitant but sometimes you really need to experience it for yourself! I thought it was a gorgeous ocean view layout!

  • Apr 28, 2018 by maressato...

    The hotel was set in a gorgeous location on tye cliffs. The room was clean and comfortable, perfect for my getaway. Peace and tranquility were the sweet notes that accompanied the waves crashing below my room window. Staff was amazing, Eric, Mitch and Meesh were wonderful, professional and friendly.

  • Apr 25, 2018 by Nick Gupta

    Nice hotel, great staff at the front desk. The hotel is nicely situated by the water. We had a partial view room which was great in the morning. This hotel is very nice but we prefer the Cliffs Resort but would stay here if the price is right.

  • Apr 25, 2018

    Loved our night here. The view was amazing. Would highly recommend getting an oceanfront view room. Saw whales in distance while we waited for the gorgeous sunset. Room very nice as well... clean and updated. There is a small public beach you can walk to but probably not a good idea as the steps are being worked on by city. This hotel is on beautiful cliffs.

  • Apr 25, 2018 by cmenteer

    second stay here, but this time we stayed in an ocean view king room. it was gorgeous and worth the extra cost. on our first trip, we waited to the last day to try the restaurant. it was great and you absolutely can’t beat the convenience. also, it’s walking distance to what is now my favorite sushi restaurant. i’ll be back again.

  • Apr 24, 2018 by Shanelle Sumulong

    The only good thing about this hotel is the view. Everything else felt cheap; the bed, the furniture, the bathroom, the foundation itself. The walls and ceilings were so thin that we could hear everything the guests above us were doing. When we told the front desk, they said there was nothing they could do about it. The rates are definitely overpriced.

  • Apr 24, 2018 by svehlabro...

    I recently booked the Spyglass Inn when my daughter and I were going to be on a college tour trip to Cal Poly. Such a great place... the location on the water, proximity to Cal Poly, Avila Beach and Pismo Beach were great. The rooms were very nice and we appreciated the unique soaps and shampoos provided. The bath towels were generously large! It was very convenient to grab a quick bite at the restaurant... and the view (of course) was spectacular. Thanks for a great stay!

  • Apr 24, 2018 by grandmapr...

    We've stayed here many times love it. However, our trips to the restaurant was disappointing this stay. Wait staff not to friendly. And it took a long time for our server. Other than the restaurant service it was great

  • Apr 23, 2018 by jessmasti...

    The hotel was clean and new. Staff was attentive and quick to fulfill requests. I loved the text request system, it mad easy communication simple. Price was unbeatable and view was perfect. Very happy with everything. Stay could not have been better!

  • Apr 23, 2018 by Gurpreet...

    Nice clean and spacious room. Good location close to beach and amenities. Food was ok at the restaurant but plenty of other places to eat in the vicinity. Kids loved the heated pool and spa. Overall very good experience.

  • Apr 23, 2018 by June D.

    Oceanfront ....right up front and fabulous! The Spyglass Inn is easy....easy to find, easy to register and easy to enjoy. That sweet Debbie at the desk was so welcoming and informative.  The restaurant is a great place for a drink on the deck or a delicious breakfast.  Don't even have to start up the car!  You will be sorry to leave when you do.

  • Apr 22, 2018 by cherylker...

    The Spyglass used to be tired and aging, not any longer! The update done to the rooms is very nice, the beds were like a cloud that you disappeared into every night. We enjoyed walking the grounds, the fire pits and just the overall cleanliness. The restaurant is still a little tired but you can't beat the view and the food is still good.

  • Apr 20, 2018 by jshuler44...

    Great facility and great service. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Beds and bedding excellent. The staff went out of their way to take care of us. The meeting room was perfect for our group meetings. Thanks

  • Apr 19, 2018 by Hegmom5

    I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Spyglass Inn. The rooms are well appointed, spacious and clean. I took a few extra personal days to enjoy the views, walkways along the ocean and pool. I felt the hotel was a great value for the room size and amenities available.

  • Apr 19, 2018 by mustangal...

    Very nice rooms with a very large HD TV. Very comfortable beds and nice decor. Our room had a balcony that faced the pool and the ocean could be seen from the room. There is a nice lawn area with gas fire pits and chairs that face the ocean. The check in personnel was very nice and they had delicious cookies.

  • Apr 18, 2018 by davionisn...

    Hotel Room was amazing! Fire Place, Patio, and comfortable large bed..I will be back. The hotel sits on the back of the beach.. you can hear the water at night and it’s so relaxing. I will rate this hotel a 5 star

  • Apr 18, 2018 by pmande270...

    Highly recommend stay. Very nice rooms, facilities. We enjoyed the cosy and large rooms with breath-taking ocean view. The fireplace in the room was an extra touch to make our stay at the Spyglass Inn a memorable experience.

  • Apr 17, 2018 by Antony G

    Arrived late at night and although there was a mix up with my booking, they accommodated me gracefully and with ease. Wonderful, friendly staff. Restaurant was great, guest breakfast deal was an excellent value. Highly recommended

  • Apr 17, 2018 by Xavier A

    Came into town to visit Cal Poly. We chose the location because of the proximity to Cal Poly and Pismo Beach. We enjoyed the heated pool and walkway behind the hotel. Beautiful sunsets in the evening. The staff was very helpful at check-in, we came in really late. The front desk was helpful with providing a referral for dinner. Overall great location with friendly staff

  • Apr 16, 2018 by isenbergs...

    From check in to check out, this hotel was amazing! The room was gorgeous, the beds were very comfortable. The view....I could have stayed there staring at it for weeks. We loved the fire pits and the walking path below.

  • Apr 13, 2018 by Anthony Adion

    Very comfortable, and away from the crowds. The staff is superb, and the ocean views are amazing.

  • Apr 12, 2018 by Heather Lamb

    Exceptional! Was upgraded to a wonderful ocean view room! Beds are super comfy and the Linens were plush and soft. The view is absolutely stunning. Saw dolphins swimming offshore

  • Mar 30, 2018 by Matt M.

    We booked our room off "booking.com" for a Thursday. Our room was super cheap $200.83 for two queens. Beds were comfy. The pool was comfortably warm (heated pool) and spa was a nice choice. Rooms are wonderful. However location of which room you are at is important. I'm not complaining cuz our time was amazing and staff was excellent. But room 139 is right next to ice machine and electrical room (maybe that's why we paid less??). The fire pits are magnificent and are located at the edge of the beach which are connected to the hotel. We will stay here again. Fresh baked cookies yummy and some fruit for you healthy peps. Thanks Mitch.

  • Mar 20, 2018 by Shane S

    My wife and I have stayed at the Spyglass Inn several times, we love our peaceful escape to the Central Coast. The gardens are amazing, the view is relaxing and we enjoy our glass of wine on the balcony or by the fire pit. The rooms are comfortable, cozy and we love the fireplace in the room. We will be back soon Spyglass!

  • Mar 19, 2018 by Waldo380

    I had a one night stop in Pismo Beach mid-week and found this jewel of a hotel on the California Coastline. Nicely priced and by luck got an oceanview room, wonderful. An older property, but nicely maintained and interiors updated with all the amenities (well almost). And a friendly and efficient staff. It is freeway close (but not too close), and has a restaurant and bar across the parking lot, and two nearby resorts also have the same and are within walking distance along the coastal footpath for a nice evening pub crawl! ha ha. My particular room actually was suite worthy, with two separate rooms, a sitting room and bedroom, both with gigantic TV's with plenty of channels (though the last thing I looked at after my ocean views and strolls). They have gas fire pits on the ocean side of the hotel to enjoy and even sell Smoore's kits for that late evening snack. The Jacuzzi was clean and hot, with towels poolside, nice even in the California 'winter'. I would recommend a stop here after checking prices, and get there at check-in to enjoy the afternoon on the property and evening. Parking was also easy, many spots and most right by your room. The only thing missing in the room was a small in-room fridge, but only cost them 1/2 of 1% in my rating, ha.

  • Mar 18, 2018 by joebO6117...

    Our room was very comfortable it had all the amenities you would need. The views were fantastic, we had an up stairs room with a full ocean view. The restaurant had excellent food. Very nice place to stay in Pismo Beach, California.

  • Mar 18, 2018 by patrick s

    Stay started with an easy early check-in and the staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The remainder of the stay in a perfectly clean room with a spectacular view and a staff that made a late check-out as easy as pie. Love this place!

  • Mar 16, 2018 by bulgogs

    Room was updated and very spacious, very nice. Management of property is excellent, with very personable staff that go out of their way to help you enjoy the property. Nice pool and hot tub, really gorgeous grounds with automated fire pits and New England style chair/lounges. Awesome views of the water and seaside bluffs. Easy access (15-20 min drive) to downtown SLO and airport.

  • Mar 16, 2018 by linda1234...

    We stayed in the front row on the second floor,well worth the upgrade. The balcony overlooked the ocean and although it rained the whole time that we were there, it was still magical. The room is not spacious but well appointed

  • Mar 16, 2018 by Luckymoms...

    I have been to Pismo Beach many times and stayed closer the pier area. However, it was so crowded on my last visit that I decided to try something a little further away. Although it is just a few blocks away, this location was quiet and peaceful. The scenery from the hotel is amazing and there are fire pits on the bluff so you can sit and enjoy the sunset even if it is chilly. It rained when we were there, so didn't enjoy that, but the rain only added to the environment in my opinion. It was so relaxing. The service at the hotel was first rate. Everyone we met was professional, but very friendly and helpful. They offered coffee and cookies in the lobby in the afternoon and coffee in the morning as well. They do not have a breakfast service, but there is a restaurant there that offers breakfast at a very low price for guests. I will definitely be returning and this will be my new hotel in the Pismo area for sure.

    Can't say enough good things about the room and the staff. Will definitely stay again!! The restaurant is not the greatest but there are other choices nearby. We also went down the road to the hot tub place.

  • Mar 10, 2018 by Georgeann C

    The most amazing view from the ocean view rooms!!! gorgeous landscaping! recently remodeled rooms are very nice, bed very comfortable! This is our third stay here. We love Pismo beach and the surrounding area. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! Fire pits a plus! After a very stressful few months I told my husband I needed to get away to a deserted island. That didn't happen but honestly, this past trip was just what the doctor ordered!! Thank you Spyglass Inn and your wonderful friendly front desk personnel!

    El personal del hotel super amable y dispuesto a ayudar. Nos asignaron una habitación con vista, lástima que por la fecha que viajmos era bastante limitada.La habiltación miy agradable, lo mismo que el entorno. Nos alojamos solo una noche ya que estábamos en camino entre Los Angeles y San Francisco. Es un punto ideal para coratr el recorrido.Recomiendo este hotel

    We enjoyed our visit to Pismo Beach & this hotel was the best. Close to downtown & the views & grounds were amazing. The restaurant on site was very good also and had great views. Will definitely go back next time we are there.

    Das Hotel liegt in erster Reihe zum Strand and Stadtrand von Pismo Beach. Wir waren eine Nacht auf der Durchreise dort und haben uns für die mittlere Zimmerkategorie entschieden. Meesh war unsere unglaublich nette und hilfsbereite Rezeptionistin und hat uns noch auf die beste Zimmerkategorie geupgraded. Die Zimmer sind modern und freundlich eingerichtet und die Betten sind wirklich super bequem!!!! Wir hatten eine Terrasse mit uneingeschränktem Blick auf das Meer. Leider hat die Dusche dann nicht funktioniert, hier wäre es schön gewesen wenigstens die Option zu haben in einem anderen Zimmer zu duschen oder das Zimmer nochmal zu wechseln. Aber das war das einzige Manko. PS: Wer in diesem Hotel übernachtet, sollte unbedingt den Japaner auf der anderen Straßenseite hinter dem Deli besuchen!

    The Spyglass Inn is one of the most beautifully scenic places on the California coast. The room we spotless. The hospitality of the staff was unparalleled. We would certainly recommend this place as a great getaway destination. I wish I could give more than 5 stars on a rating.

  • Feb 22, 2018 by Dianna B

    My fiance and I live 10 minutes away from here but thought we'd splurge for a staycation last weekend. HOLY COW we were not disappointed!!! The hotel room was immaculate and really tastefully decorated, I LOVED the art on the walls and the knobs on the dresser were gorgeous. The view from our patio was amazing, obviously, 180 degree view of the ocean! The landscaping was beautiful and just set the scene. It was so relaxing and gorgeous, and the price to stay here is super reasonable (considering the cost of neighboring hotels!!). The restaurant was awesome, great deal for hotel guests for breakfast. The pool and hot tub were really nice too! We walked to DePaulo & Sons for a bottle of champagne for the room, and walked to Kanpai Sushi for the best meal of my life. I'd recommend everyone stay here- the view is amazing, the hotel staff are so welcoming and warm, the room is gorgeous and comfortable and you can't beat the price for all it has to offer!!

  • Feb 17, 2018 by Matt Olsson

    We got into the hotel after midnight after a 6+ hour drive and the service at the counter was incredibly helpful. Got us checked in quickly with no issues. Coffee in the room. A discount at good restaurant attached to the hotel. Perfect for a quick stop over on your way up and down the coast.

  • Feb 14, 2018 by Johnny B

    Paradise found! This location with outstanding customer service, courteous staff and quite simply a place full of sunshine, peace and happiness will now be on our list of must stay places when looking for quiet time. Really no reason to stay anywhere else on the central coast. Bravo to everyone at this property would rate this a 10+ if we could

  • Feb 13, 2018 by jlaws0n59

    Awesome ocean views & beautiful gardens. Clean rooms. Friendly staff. This vacation experience is our stress relief & relaxation time. Close to fun things to do like miniature golf, the Atascadero Zoo & Hearst Castle.

  • Feb 12, 2018 by Joshua C.

    My recent stay at the Spyglass Inn was great.  I was really surprised at the level of customer service this place provides.  The front desk staff are super attentive and very knowledgeable about the area.  The rooms are clean and well maintained.  They have a very nice area set up to catch the sunset including benches and firepits with unobstructed views of the ocean.  The beach is a short 5 minute walk away. All in all the Spyglass Inn is a great place to stay if you're considering visiting Pismo Beach.

  • Feb 12, 2018 by B Kay H

    This was my 4th visit and my boyfriend's 1st. He loved it as much as I do. The views are incredible, and the gardens and pathways are beautiful. We love the addition of the fire pits! The bed and bedding were so comfortable and luxurious we couldn't decide between taking a nap or getting out and enjoying the beautiful weather. The big bath towels and robes made us feel very pampered. The pool was the perfect temperature for a nice dip. Excellent service, too. We love this place!

  • Feb 12, 2018 by countryliving2018

    First time staying at Spyglass and we're coming back! My husband and I truly enjoyed out stay. The room was beautiful and the view of the ocean was amazing. Our Guest Service Agent, Meesh, couldn't be more friendlier and welcoming. Thank you for the cookies.

  • Feb 11, 2018 by jlayman12

    We always stay at ocean front room, location wonderful, rooms nice and you can’t beat view. The happy hour at the restaurant is great and runs from 4-6:30 so you can enjoy breathtaking sunsets! Staff at both hotel and restaurant/bar the best!

  • Feb 07, 2018 by Matt A.

    I brought my boo thang to Pismo because I can only afford to stay ocean side when the weather is shit. We like to make these little getaways as romantic as possible so we made passionate love in the rental prior to check in for fear of my card being declined. We were greeted by two majestic fellows whom I first mistook for mermen but it turned out they were  the hotel clerks. Eric and Mitch greeted us with open arms, open hearts and complimentary toiletries. I think they could smell the aroma of poverty that trailed me relentlessly and were ever so generous enough to upgrade us to a quaint little bungalow on the upper west side. I appreciate hospitality like this as it's become harder to find these days but I most assuredly will return to this sacred land again soon.  Thank u guys for being awesome, we genuinely appreciate it!

  • Jan 29, 2018 by timminater13

    Always a great time at Spyglass. We enjoy the Food,View and the comfortable bed, take the opportunity to see and stay here if you are looking to come over to Pismo. The Resaurant has a great atmosphere and the food is always fresh, try the pulled pork sandwich meal with Garlic fries, you won’t be disappointed.

  • Jan 26, 2018 by m g

    Nice room Great view. Good food at the attached restaurant, Sara our waitress at the restaurant was lots of fun. Beds are comfortable room clean. Nice to sit at the fire pits and watch the sun set over the ocean. Close to everything, the wharf was fun. We had a great time and will be back.

  • Jan 22, 2018 by Mike P

    We chose the Spyglass Inn after doing some research online. We booked with the hotel directly. The young man was very helpful on the phone and making the reservation was a breeze. The room was clean, spacious, and well-appointed. We were on the ground level a few steps from one of the fire pits. The fire pits offer a fantastic view of the ocean and serve as a gathering place to make new friends. We highly recommend the Spyglass Inn for its price, amenities, and location.

  • Jan 22, 2018 by Steve J

    From the view to the employees to the room and attached restaurant, everything was awesome. Great place for a weekend getaway. Close to great restaurants, movies and sightseeing as well as right on the ocean.

  • Jan 21, 2018 by Anthony Lazrovich

    I've wanted to stay at Spyglass Inn for a very long time but haven't had the opportunity until just recently. I've dined at their restaurant a number of times when I lived in Arroyo Grande, which I found out is actually independent from the hotel. So when I decided I would bring my girlfriend to Pismo for our anniversary, the Spyglass Inn was the perfect choice. I sprung for the more expensive "ocean-view" room that comes with a king sized bed, fireplace, couch, desk and of course the amazing view. Our room was on the 1st floor which was great because we had our own patio sitting area facing the coast. There are also 3 fire-pits for guests to use that are incredibly simple to operate.

    Aside from the hotel itself, the staff really made my stay enjoyable. They contact you by text message the day of your stay and I was surprised to discover that it was an actual person texting me, and not some generic automated texting system. Super cool. They wanted to know if there was anything I needed before I even got there. They also asked what time I thought I'd be checking in, and when I told them that I had arrived to town a little early (4 hours before check in time), I got a text saying that my room was already ready! I highly recommend this hotel. Good price, unbelievable view, wonderful staff.

  • Jan 19, 2018 by anitab431

    Excellent location with fantastic ocean views from the room and from the restaurant on site. Restaurant was excellent with moderate prices and great service. We asked for a straight back chair and at another time for some extra towels.Both times the response was very cordial and very timely. The room was large and comfortable. I admit the sofa was an usual design and we could not use it but everything else was wonderful. We return in a minute. The landscaped area by the ocean's edge was beautiful and functional.

  • Jan 19, 2018 by A TripAdvisor Member

    Great view! Nestled between grand resorts, this treasure is truly a find. Simple lodging with restaurant right there and trail to beach; gotta love the coziness. Not elegant or spa, but beds are really comfortable which is a plus. If you’re looking for a relaxing weekend where you can leave the door open and watch and listen to the ocean, this is a place for you.

  • Jan 16, 2018 by Furhath Arnob

    Staying 1 night is NOT good enough. At least 2 nights, doesn't matter if you have an ocean view room or not. They have ocean facing lawn with multiple fireplaces along seating arrangements. If not cloudy weather, you can see sunset just by standing on their lawn. Rooms are pretty clean also, and service 4 star easily. A good weekend get away .......

  • Jan 16, 2018 by Tamanna M

    Beautiful view of the ocean. Hotel nice and clean. Love those

  • Jan 14, 2018 by elbz2001

    All staff was attentive and front desk texted me to welcome us prior to our arrival. They also texted to see if we would like a late check out. We had a beautiful partial ocean view room with balcony. Hotel is a little older but very nice. The pillows were comfortable. Restaurant onsite had great Staff (Ryan) and good food. They also had heaters outside if needed. Would defiantly stay there again. Great location and great views. Weather was also great this weekend.

  • Jan 11, 2018 by B Manda

    Spyglass Inn is always an amazing stay. From the amazing cliff side overlook to the lovely and cozy rooms, we love every moment of our stays. 5 Out of 5, especially because of the top notch customer service of the staff ( Meesh espcially)!

  • Jan 10, 2018 by Kev D

    Beautiful location. Exactly what we wanted on our honeymoon from Ireland. The Spyglass Inn was perfect. Phenomenal view from our bedroom of the Pacific Ocean. Very welcoming and informative staff. Bedroom was a great size, loads of space, immaculately cleaned with a patio facing the ocean. Eat in the Spyglass Inn restaurant which is on the property. Food & Wine were amazing. Great size portions. Watched the sun set from our table. Couldn't asked for more. Visited near by Avila beach, worth checking out. Stayed for two night. Wish we had booked for another. Really enjoy our stay. Would recommend the Spyglass to anyone considering staying. You really get great value for your money here.

  • Jan 08, 2018 by Luis Garcia

    Excellent location right on the cliffs with beautiful views of ocean and Avila beach. Hotel has nice clean rooms with very comfortable beds.

  • Jan 03, 2018 by Jacelyn M

    We booked this just as a stopping point on a trip down PCH. I have told everyone how great it was. Nice people, beautiful grounds, stunning bluff views and a fabulous bed. I actually looked to see what mattress it was. I would definitely stay here again. Pismo Beach was one of our favorite stopping points. Cute little surf town with some beautiful views. It is on our “would visit for longer” list!

  • Jan 02, 2018 by Borys S

    Genialna miejscowka, widok na ocean powala! 5min spacerem od plazy, calkiem spore pokoje. Szczegolnie polecam pokoj z widokiem na ocean i kominkiem oraz tarasem. Piekny widok! Od strony oceanu przed hotelem bardzo fajne gazowe kominki z miejscami do siedzenia, w pokoju kominek. Jak na motel bardzo, bardzo przyjemnie. Oczywiscie musimy pamietac o “amerykanskim” stylu ale po za tym na prawde goraco polecam. Ceny bardzo przystepne: zaplacilem $450usd za 2 noce.

  • Dec 31, 2017 by Kyle Bechtel

    Room was nice, clean. Unfortunately the laundry faculties were directly underneath our room. So at 8am when the spin cycle kicks in, the entire room begins violently shaking like there was an earthquake. When we mentioned this to the staff, they told us, "oh yeah they normally don't rent out that room unless we're really full." Yet we still paid full price and weren't told about this at check-in. Not recommended.

  • Dec 27, 2017 by Sid's Reviews

    Very nice and cozy. The heated pools were the best features that I would look forward to if I came again. A slight walk to the beaches but the backyard has bonfires overlooking beautiful bluffs.

  • Dec 26, 2017 by Sidarth G

    Great and friendly hotel with cookies as you are welcomed. No beach access only bluffs unless you walk half a mile on a private paved path. The pool was awfully nice and toasty as it was heated. There is a great view of the sunset as there are several fireplaces overlooking the bluffs. Great place overall to explore, dine, and be diverse.

  • Dec 13, 2017 by MaryGT

    We stayed as a family of four for two nights at the Spyglass Inn. I would recommend paying the extra for an ocean view room on the top floor (2nd) with balcony. Our room was small, but clean with comfortable beds, updated bathroom and a balcony overlooking the parking lot / pool. The fire pit area overlooking the ocean was really nice - just push a green button to ignite the fire pit and enjoy morning coffee or afternoon wine with a lovely view over the Pacific. In addition to the hotel restaurant, there's a sushi place within walking distance (it was closed the Monday night we went to eat there), which looked nice, and an excellent market DePalo & Sons, which has fantastic options for warm meals, cheese and cold cuts as well as cookies and pastries, groceries, a large wine selection and local gifts. We ended up getting dinner and taking it back to our room and then coffee and breakfast the next morning. Overall, the Spyglass Inn isn't fancy, but is a good value in a good location. Staff was very friendly.

  • Dec 11, 2017 by Levi Hinton

    It was a pretty good. If given the chance, I'd eat at one of the normal spots in town.

  • Dec 06, 2017 by Jessica S.

    If I could give them higher stars, I would! Their customer service is amazing! We loved everything down to the soaps they provide you all the way up to the views of the ocean their ocean front rooms provide you. When we checked in, the gentleman was knowledgeable, curious and very nice! When we got to the room I was instantly happy when how clean the air smelled and the room was perfectly clean! You can also tell they remodeled it recently to make them more up to date! Very pleasing to the eyes. Their beds are seriously the best I've ever slept in! They have a Keurig in the room with pods of coffee and tea. They also have a mini refrigerator.. just no microwave.. We checked in at night so we didn't see the beach right away, but as soon as we woke up, I was taken back how gorgeous it all was. Very very very happy with my visit! I would recommend this location to all my family and friends! Check out was easy and pleasant as well.

  • Dec 06, 2017 by jnisson

    My girlfriend and I spend an extended weekend at the Spyglass Inn, the first weekend of December. The location was convenient, a bit out of town, we enjoyed that, much more quiet and relaxing, but still within walking or driving distance to shopping and restaurants. The pool was small, that was ok by us, we spent our time on the beach that was easily accessible with a stairway down the bluff from their sister hotel next door. Overall the room was very clean with the exception of bird droppings on the balcony, we placed blankets over the chairs that seemed to work ok. The bed was very comfortable, the mini fridge was useful and our television was very big, at least 50 inches, with plenty of channels. Our favorite part however, was the 180 degree amazing view from our 2nd floor room, (225).

  • Dec 03, 2017 by jack rogers

    Love this place. We brought our dogs here. We have so much fun here. Relaxing and enjoying the awesome view

  • Dec 02, 2017 by Rebecca B.

    This place is a gem!  It's probably the oldest of the three hotels adjacent, but it doesn't show its age. It is nicely maintained and modern with excellent ocean views and allows you to sleep to the sound of the surf.  Beds are comfortable. Sheets soooo soft! wonderful wonderful stay.  I think the vibe of the place is contagious because everyone was friendly and inclusive - beyond a simple "hello".  Will stay here again any time I can justify getting away.

  • Nov 30, 2017 by PaulTraveler777

    I come to Pismo every year in October/November to see a sunset in the Pacific and I always stay at the Spyglass Inn. They have clean rooms with wonderful views of the ocean (if you are on the ocean side). If you can't get an ocean view room, there is a nice paved path to walk along behind the hotel with benches and firepits so you can relax and enjoy the Pacific Ocean. There is also a convenient restaurant alongside the hotel to have dinner or breakfast in. This is a terrific Hotel. I also want to add that the hotel receptionist, Meesh Michel, was just awesome.

  • Nov 26, 2017 by Maru A

    We had a great time on our short stay at this hotel the day before Thanksgiving. Service is exceptional, everyone on the staff were very nice and accommodating. We booked a regular room online and when we got there we upgraded our room to an ocean view, the room was big with two comfy queen beds and a big balcony with great views of the ocean. My kids loved the pool which was heated to 85F degrees and very clean. You can walk next to the ocean and there are a few hotels on the way to the beach where we watched an amazing sunset. Very happy with our stay and will definitely be back.

  • Nov 20, 2017 by Chris Williams

    Attended a wedding there and the location was absolutely amazing. It is right on the coast and so it allows you to have a nice overlook of the ocean.

  • Nov 19, 2017 by Lyndsey S.

    Do not stay here,  I spent 5 days there for a conference and got BED BUGS the first night. I had red spots on my neck and towards the end of the week i got bites on my arms and chest. The staff moved me to another room on the second day but by Thursday i had more bites on my arms and chest. Upon checkout i explained to Jennifer (front desk) how bad my stay was and how i found a bug in my bed after the first night and then a couple spiders in the second room. I don't know if it was a nervous laugh or she really thought it was funny that i had red spots on my neck from a bed bug, but it was very frustrating that she bypassed my concerns as she said "I'm sorry" and handed me my receipt for the bill. Thanks but no thanks... save yourself hours of sanitizing your clothes and doctor visits... don't stay here!

  • Nov 15, 2017 by Jennifer W.

    Very comfortable. Staff were super friendly. The views are amazing. Great place to relax and the convenience of a restaurant being so close is a huge plus. The rooms were spacious and clean. Probably the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on.

  • Nov 15, 2017 by Julian M.

    Nice hotel ..great staff at front desk ..great location with heated pool and jacuzzi will definitely stay again .clean room ..

  • Nov 13, 2017 by Steven Sill

    We had a room with a great view, the room was very clean, not much to complain about, except for the plumbing. It's loud, can hear easily when someone next to you is showering.

  • Nov 08, 2017 by Cherie M

    My husband and I travel frequently to Pismo Beach and have stayed at a variety of hotels. We have always preferred the Spyglass Inn. We went for our anniversary in November, we booked in February so we could stay in room 226. When we arrived, Angela was waiting for us with a smile and cookies! Easy check in, she welcomed us like we were family. When we got to our room, towels in the shape of swans, kissing and rose petals on the bed. A few minutes later, a knock at the door, sparkling cider was delivered! We always like to stay upstairs, ocean view with balcony. In room 226 the bed faces the ocean and there is a neat sitting area with additional windows. The room was clean, well stocked and has a small fridge. When we checked out, Meesha was wonderful. We will be back...

  • Nov 05, 2017 by roger b

    We had called the front desk to let them know our TV was not working, we had been watching the World Series 5th game supper exciting. They imediatley gave us another room. The Astros won the game and The Spy Glass has a customer for life. Thank you for you going above and beyond

  • Nov 03, 2017 by hockeyaw19

    Not much to complain about here. The check in was very smooth, the room was cozy and comfortable for me and my three companions. The view in the back is beautiful and there is a gas station/convenience store very close. Restaurants and the main pismo beach drag are within a 5 minute drive. Would stay again!

  • Oct 30, 2017 by Jessica Vasquez

    We booked the hotel because of the pictures, close proximity to shopping stores and more. We arrived and were met by Angela and Meesh. This two young ladies as well as the whole spyglass crew have made our stay so far an unforgettable experience. We were greeted with a bucket of iced sparkling cider and two glasses to celebrate our Anniversary. Meesh recommended great restaurants, happy hour bars, etc. The room itself with partial view is spectacular as well as the fire pits and Pismo beach views.
    We're already planning a family trip in the upcoming new year. Thank you to all at Spyglass Inn for making this trip so special.

  • Oct 30, 2017 by meanderingpescado

    This is a great place. Very clean all areas! pool and jacuzzi sparkling! No bright lights on the ocean side!! I was able to sit next to the fire outside and enjoy the stars and ocean!! was amazing!! so relaxing! The reason I picked this area was to not be in the traffic of Pismo downtown and it was perfect! rooms are clean, beds are very very very comfortable, so cozy! (only issue in Pismo is highway traffic noise, which is how Pismo area is built near the 101 so it's unavoidable.) I asked for a microwave and they had it in the room for me when we got there My room had the patio with garden, butterflies and bunnies!! it was great! My mom is in a wheelchair and it was very easy easy to get around, I don't think they had access to top floors but first floor was fine. added bonus was their hotel group had a beach wheelchair at their other property for us to use at the beach. So grateful for that, was amazing to bring mom on the beach! she was all smiles!! thank you!

  • Oct 30, 2017 by Nuage490

    We walked into a warm and lovely office equipped with a fireplace, cookies and the warmest smile. It turns out that Angela was a wealth of information and got us set up for the weekend. I was celebrating something wonderful and she made sure our room was beautiful and went out of her way to make sure it went well. Great hotel from jumping one city to the next. I was surprised and feel that I would definitely return!

  • Oct 30, 2017 by Roland L.

    I couldn't be more satisfied with the staff and the venue. I was accommodated for a last minute stay, with a view of the Pacific Ocean when I informed them it was a couples getaway. Upon arriving, I was greeted warmly and was even provided with a bottle of Apple Cider on the house, in a sandcastle bucket of ice. thoughtful, classy and a true gem at Pismo. Walk along the rear hotel trail. Connect and have a good time with your loved ones.  The stroll is just breathtaking. I will return. Thank you Spyglass!!

  • Oct 29, 2017 by mileyc868

    My fiancé and I have had the luxury of staying at Spyglass Inn about once a month for a night or two every month for about the last year. We keep coming back because the Spyglass Inn staff goes far above and beyond on their customer service efforts. They truly have the heart of a servant there. I would like to specifically recognize Debbie and Jennifer whom always break their backs to accommodate our every request over the last year. People in the hotel customer service industry would do well to take notes from them! ALSO more recently in our stays we have had the pleasure of encountering a newer member of staff Angela Galvin who must be taking notes from Debbie and Jennifer because she far exceeded our expectations. So friendly, kind and knowledgeable! Every month I can not wait for our stay at Spyglass, I can always count on that Debbie, Jennifer and Angela will take care of me! Also one last thing, not only is the staff amazing but the rooms are always spotless, it’s my absolutel favorite views of the ocean, and Spyglass has the comfiest most luxurious beds! You simply can’t go wrong at the Spyglass! -sincerely Miley and Ashley

  • Oct 28, 2017 by Susan M.

    This was a great find. I was looking for hotels last minute and came across this one. They had two nights available online but only needed one night. I called the hotel directly and they were able to give me the one night for the online price. The hotel location is amazing. Great views. Our room was not overlooking the ocean but could not have asked for more being it was last minute. We took advantage of the fire pits overlooking the ocean. The rooms do not have A/C but with the cool temperatures the ceiling fans are sufficient. Centrally located to everything. The restaurant next door had a special for guests staying at the hotel. Had an amazing breakfast for a great price and amazing views sitting on the outside patio overlooking the cliffs and ocean. Will come here again!!

  • Oct 25, 2017 by juliamccabe72

    Our weekend at the Spyglass Inn was fantastic!!! We stayed in a King/Oceanview room on the ground floor and our patio opened up to the back terrace. Being able to walk out the back door to the walkway and fire pits was fantastic and the view was incredible! This was our first time visiting Pismo Beach, but it will NOT be our last!!! Our stay in Pismo Beach was great and we are very happy that we stayed on the Spyglass Inn!

    Our customer service experience was exceptional thanks to Jennifer. We were completely impressed with the hotel, our room, the view but mostly for how we were treated. Well done to all. Thank you for not only a great stay but for embracing customer service. Again I have to say a very big thank you to Jennifer, she made it her mission to ensure we were well taken care of. Wonderful hotel for the money.

    Loved the friendly attitude of desk staff and even the sweet maids. The restaurant was also very accommodating and service was impressive. Would recommend this place to all my friends and family. Thank you Spyglass Inn!!

  • Oct 16, 2017 by Carol W

    Our oceanfront room 226 was the perfect place to watch the sunsets over the Pacific, plus we watched humpback whales just offshore. Fascinating! The grounds are lovely, and the attached restaurant was perfect.

  • Oct 09, 2017 by Marie S

    While visiting college campuses in the area, my daughter and I stayed at the Spyglass Inn because it was conveniently located between Cal Poly and UC Santa Barbara. The location is wonderful..you cant get any closer to the ocean. The rooms seemed to be updated recently with new linens, flooring, decor and other amenities. It was a nice touch to have robes in the room which was unexpected as well as warm, freshly baked cookies for guests at check in. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful by recommending restaurants for dinner as well as explaining how to get down to the beach...which we would have not figured out on our own. We took advantage of low tide and was able to do some tide-pooling. The view was amazing. The one area that fell short was that it was a very warm day and our room was quite warm at night. There was a ceiling fan that we used but we ended up having to sleep with the window open which I was not happy about but the area seemed very safe.

  • Oct 07, 2017 by Ali Badawy

    This is a great place to get away and do nothing. The hotel is super comfortable. The rooms are clean and the beds are very relaxing. down side is there is not AC in the rooms and the pack and play bed for my daughter was broken. They didnt have another one to use.

  • Oct 07, 2017 by lowrider1993

    The hotel is excellent and that includes staff at front deck;restaurant is excellent food is very good the view from the bedroom and the bar are out standing you don’t want to leave any of them just one beautiful place

    We stayed here for three nights. The rooms are beautifully decorated. The beds were very comfortable, and the room was very spacious. The room had a sofa bed, but we didn't need to use it. The room had a small fridge and a coffee maker. The room didn't have air conditioner, but we didn't need it because the weather was great during those days. My favorite thing about this hotel was that only about 100ft from my room, you could walk to the back of the hotel and there was a walking path with amazing views. The last picture I included was the view from the path. Loved it!

    Pricey menu for the quality of the food. Good location and a nice view.

    The Spyglass hotel has been somewhat of a tradition for my husband and I the last couple of years. We have two anniversaries: our “real” anniversary in October, and our wedding anniversary in February. When we eloped in SLO a few years ago, we had been staying at the Spyglass. Our appointment at the county clerk’s office was at about 10:30 so we called the front desk and they were gracious enough to give us some extra time to check out. That’s just one example of the hospitality I can give you. In addition, the hotel room is absolutely beautiful. We get the ocean front room which has a fireplace, a patio, a little sofa, an ottoman, a regular chair, and a desk. From your room you can see and hear the ocean. You also have beautiful flowering shrubs, plenty of wild birds and bunnies to admire early in the morning, and gas fire pits to lounge at in the evenings. The location is great too. Just down the freeway there are the outlets in Pismo, antique shops in arroyo grande, and don’t forget to make a reservation at Jocko’s in Nipomo for the best steak you’ve ever had in your life. *all of this to say* we WILL be back, every February and October!

    Came just for one night on our way to LA. Awsome location, comfy bed, renovated room, fire place, big tv screens, parking place,free wi fi, many restaurants near by, the view from the window is priceless.

    Great stay as usual.  Everything was perfect -- we even were able to get the same rooms as our last visit. (Travelers should be aware that the Spyglass Inn is NOT associated with the Spyglass Inn Restaurant except by name only.  The two are owned by different entities and the high level of service at the Spyglass Inn is NOT the same as the poor service at the Spy Glass Inn Restaurant.)

    First time stay on a business trip. I have to say I can't wait to bring my family here. The restaurant is lovely with ocean views and an excellent happy hour. The fire pits overlooking the ocean are relaxing with an amazing view! Easy beach access with a cute walking trail. The rooms are clean and comfortable. This place does not disappoint. Cannot wait to come back for pleasure.

  • Oct 01, 2017 by Mdmozol

    The Spyglass is a great place to stay. Amazing staff; beautiful rooms and a great restaurant. The hotel is close to downtown Pismo and the pier. It’s one of the best values in the area. Not to mention the awesome complimentary cookies! Enjoy!!

  • Oct 01, 2017 by Celeste B.

    Rooms were clean, and bed was very comfortable. Enjoyed the fire pits and the beautiful view! Also enjoyed the hot tub. I did take a star off because you can't access the beach because the hotel is above on a cliff and we were under the impression that we would have access to the beach. Also took another star off because it is on the pricier side. Paid $300 for deluxe bedroom and did not have a beach view and check in was at 4, which in my opinion is fairly late.

  • Oct 01, 2017 by Laura W.

    Nice view...we had an ocean view room w/patio & a fireplace.  Warm cookies in the afternoon.  Didn't see any wine tasting in the lobby early evening.   Ipod docking station, nice feature

    Visited a friend in the area for the weekend - the location was central and perfect for stopping by the Pismo Beach pier, Avila, Arroyo Grande, and San Luis Obispo. We loved the garden/park walking path behind the hotels and the view of the ocean, and enjoyed some time sitting and reading near the fire pits. The room was large and clean. Our check-in experience was great - the staff member was very friendly and we had a good food discussion (and ended up eating at the place she recommended the following evening!).

  • Sep 27, 2017 by SargentTom

    I was travelling up from Los Angeles on my way up to Monterey after passing through Santa Barbara I thought I'd stop nearer Pismo Beach. I found the Spyglass on TripAdvisor with good reviews and it didn't disappoint. Fairly priced, with a great little hot tub and clean pool. We also made use of the restaurant which was good and enjoyed the sunset while eating.

  • Sep 27, 2017 by Adriana B.

    I am so pleased with my stay here! I absolutely loved this hotel! Of course it's a bit pricey but you are paying for the view of the amazing ocean so it made it worth it! Check in was a breeze and the gentleman at the front was so nice and informative. He told us a time to be back for our room and our room was ready right on time! We got ocean view room on the lower floor and this is PRIME location right in front with a great view and there was a fire pit a few feet away that was first come first serve. We were there for our honeymoon and opted for the romance package they have. When we arrived there was a cute sand pail bucket with sparkling apple cider and two spyglass inn wine glasses for us to keep, along with that was a $50 voucher for the spyglass restaurant next door. So cute! When I am paying good money I check out EVERYTHING in the hotel even down to the soap and shampoo they provide I was very pleased they gave us CO Bigelow brand lotions and soaps which don't dry out your skin! I am a heavier set girl and their towels actually wrapped around my whole body with some extra! Instead of those tint towels most hotels give. Also everything was kept very clean and housekeeping did a good job with up keep. I liked that the hotel was in the middle of everything, we were close driving distance to nearly everything we wanted to do. Check out was easy and I can honestly say I had NO issues the entire trip here which for me is a win!

    Stayed at the Spyglass Inn Sept. 12 to 16 2017. had a downstairs room with fire place, a King size bed and a seating area. The patio outside had a beautiful view of the ocean. enjoyed the nice atmosphere, and a relaxing time at the outdoor fireplace at night, with a friend enjoying the view and a glass of wine! Nice, friendly and helpful staff.

  • Sep 23, 2017 by Wendy Rees

    The rooms are clean and nice. The staff is friendly. The view is beautiful (from their 2nd floor ocean view rooms)!

  • Sep 22, 2017 by Forrest Cicogni

    Checked super late at night after a grueling drive. Great night auditor - no hassles, automatic late check-out, no pressure to leave the next morning.

  • Sep 17, 2017 by WBLLIENHART

    I was looking for a hotel on the ocean that was less than $400 per night and I found it in the Spyglass Inn. Clean, generously-sized rooms, and most important a full ocean view with balcony. Only drawback, no air conditioning, which is a factor in the late afternoon when the sun is setting and the room really heats up. Fortunately, I was given a fan, so that helped!

  • Sep 16, 2017 by melomaniacRED

    I had a quick trip to make from Los Angeles to Pismo Beach and made a last minute room booking at Spyglass Inn. (King bed with ocean view). I'm very spoiled living in Southern California with our beaches and perfect weather but I have to say these northern beaches are hard to beat. The view I had was phenomenal and the room was perfect. The room was large and I had my choice of both a couch or a large chair to kickback on. I also had a balcony which was perfect at night to just sit and watch the moon and ocean or the fire pit below. The bed was very comfortable. The area is very quiet and I had the pleasure of hearing the waves as I fell asleep. (Yes I kept the balcony door open) The staff was incredibly friendly and efficient so there wasn't the typical wait in a lobby when I checked in. Checking out was a breeze..I just had to simply send a text informing them I had left. I'll definitely be staying here again.

  • Sep 15, 2017 by Jessica S

    We needed a hotel close to San Luis Obispo on a busy weekend. We liked the Spyglass -- it was perfect for three adults who mostly just needed to sleep there. We did not have a "view" room. The beds were comfortable, the staff were uniformly friendly and helpful -- we needed to print out a document on a semi-emergency basis. You can tell that the hotel has been around for a while, but it has been updated in a pleasant way with a beachy theme. The little Keurig coffee maker was nice. We have reservations here again for an upcoming event.

  • Sep 15, 2017 by sandygreenberg

    Stayed at the Spyglass In on the 11th and 12th of this month, September. My best friend got a Groupon for a room with 2 queen Beds. We arrived and were immediately upgraded to a room with a small balcony with a "limited ocean view" We did not expect anything but a small glimpse. The young woman who checked us in was VERY personable and we liked her immediately,even before the upgrade. There were very nice cookies and apples at the front desk. I could have killed for one of those peanut butter cookies, but alas had the apple. We got to our room and immediately went to the balcony, which gave a very good view of the ocean and began to see breaching whales immediately. I mean full out of the water breaching. This lasted for an hour and a half, until dark. I have seen whales all over the world and these were spectacular sightings. We enjoyed a glass of wine and a great conversation with our neighbors. At around 8:00 PM we took a very short walk to the Spyglass restaurant and had dinner on their deck. Very convenient despite the glass of ice water dumped on my lap by the waiter. Back at the Inn the beds were SUPER comfortable with lots of pillows. The shower head was great and the towels could have wrapped around me twice and I am not small. Plenty of coffee with the Kuerig the next morning . Nice little fridge for our leftovers also. All and all , I will be staying here again. Was VERY pleased.

    I came to the area for business and had a wonderful two night stay at Spyglass. Great service, clean and comfortable hotel and beautiful ocean view. The restaurant next door for breakfast was wonderful as well!

  • Sep 12, 2017 by tkbezona

    Spyglass Inn is in a super convenient location with lots of restaurant options. Their on site restaurant was perfect with lots of dinner options. Short walk to the beach. Beatutiful scenery and views of the coast and tidepools.

  • Sep 12, 2017 by Dianne F.

    The view from the balconies of the oceanfront rooms is amazing. The landscape is also spectacular. The fire pits sit right along the cliffs and are very cozy in the evenings. The restaurant location is very convenient and offers outdoor seating with a ocean view as well. The beds are very comfortable, typical hotel room size wise, not large. The heat in the room was uncomfortable, there is no air conditioner. You can open the patio doors completely but if there is no breeze it's flat out hot. There is a ceiling fan that offers a little air but basically just blows the hot air around. Even after sunset it was still uncomfortably warm. The bathroom is nice with 2 exceptions, again the heat, no air circulates in the vanity area at all, when blow drying your hair you sweat like you are in the desert. The lighting on the mirror vanity is the only light in that area of the room and it is impossible to apply your cosmetics in there. I had to use a hand mirror and sit on the couch to do my makeup to be able to have light. The bath sheets are awesome but there are no smaller towels to wrap your hair out of the shower. If you use a bath sheet ( as I did) to wrap your hair, you feel like a huge bobble head lol. All in all it was a nice place. I would stay again but would probably do so when it's cooler and was better prepared. One last note. The restaurant, go someplace else for dinner. Breakfast is fine but dinner, with all the options around town, having dinner here will leave you underwhelmed.

    My girlfriend shopped for a hotel along the coastline since she went to school in SLO. Using some generic search like hotels.com or Expedia, she stumbled on the Spyglass Inn. Immediately after pulling up to the lobby area we were greeted by a lovely girl by the name of Meesh. Nothing what we expected at all! Bubbly personality, friendly and exceptionally informative, she answered all questions equally with formality. The facility is clean  refreshing and the walk on the front is exceptional. Thank you to all from the staff all the way up to the designers and architects. Brilliance!

  • Sep 08, 2017 by donnamA2432NB

    We got a Deluxe upstairs room with balcony & ocean view. Very clean, attractive room. Plenty of hot water, small fridge, nice bathrobes provided. The staff is friendly & helpful. Great location with good restaurants nearby.

  • Sep 07, 2017 by mimi806

    We checked in early morning just to check out the hotel. To our surprise the lady at the front desk upgraded us to an ocean view suite. I thought my husband had mentioned that it was our anniversary, but he didn't. When we checked in about 4 and saw the room we were happy and greatful for that gesture. Thank you ! We loved our stay at the Spyglass Inn, the bed was like sleeping in a soft cloud, I slept like a baby. We also enjoyed drinking coffee in the morning outside our balcony and our wine in the evening hearing the ocean and seeing it was amazing. We truly had a pleasant and lovely stay at the Spyglass Inn.

  • Sep 03, 2017 by T C.

    More like an older motel. Doors are all on the outside. One lock, no deadbolt or chain either. Overpriced for what you get. I have stayed at cheaper places that are more inviting. Employees were nice but I just didn't a homey feeling like at a lot of other places. We stayed at the hotel when of course it was record heat over 90 degrees. Our room had a wall air conditioner because it was an ADA room but they said all the other rooms had no air. Our friends were miserable on the 2 night stay. The room we had was spacious but it just seemed outdated. I thought they renovated? Cute little patio but they need a divider between the room next to us. Very weird and uncomfortable sitting outside and you can see other people right there. Also, as you can see in the picture, the restaurant is in front of the patio. It was full of people who I felt like I was staring at while trying to look over them at the ocean view. A plus was they had a mini fridge and you can walk down to the ocean from the hotel. It wasn't far. They didn't charge a parking fee which was nice but they charged other fees which ended up being about $30 more. For the price they are charging they need to have snacks in the front cookies, snacks,  or a free breakfast buffet or something. It's the little things like that that keep people coming back. I did like how they sent me a text before I checked in and asked if I needed anything. They said I can text or call them.

  • Sep 03, 2017 by Kameron Z.

    Worst hotel experience I have ever had! Bought the room for a managers special of $216 from Alan. After unloading the car and bring everything up stairs, we opened the door to find the room completely trashed. Towels everywhere, trash cans overflowing and seeping onto the floor, as well as sand everywhere. Walking down to ask for a refund I was given an offer of fifty bucks and they would bring up all new sheets and blankets, but my family and I would have to clean the entire room. Saying yes to this my family and I clean out the room and throw all the trash out into hallway. Just to end up being kicked out of the room due to the night manager switching to Justin. Clearly angered by the fact we cleaned everything Justin Just stood their and said "I can't confirm the price" and threw us out...

  • Sep 02, 2017 by Hans van Rietschote

    One star less because they do not have airco. Now usually you don't need that here but right now we have a heatwave. Ocean view rooms are superb. Fire pits on the beach till 10PM.

  • Aug 29, 2017 by Choppers San Clemente

    Super clean, great staff, beautiful location above the beach.
    Fire pits are unique added touch

  • Aug 28, 2017 by Pamydan

    Wir waren nur eine Nacht auf der Durchreise da, aber das Hotel ist einfach toll. Alles ist gepflegt und sauber. Die Zimmer waren geräumig und modern und - selbst wenn man etwas später anreist - ist das (Check In) schnell und freundlich gewesen. Sehr zu empfehlen ist auch das angeschoßene Restaurant. Die Aussicht sowohl von den Zimmern, als auch vom Restaurant aus war phantastisch. Schade dass wir nur für eine Nacht da waren.

  • Aug 22, 2017 by Tasha D

    We booked this room last minute & let them know we were celebrating our anniversary & were given an upgrade to a beautiful oceanfront room! Upon check in there was no mention of happy anniversary, but since we stayed at La Fonda in Avila the night before we were kind of spoiled on expectations. The staff at Spyglass were nice & efficient though. All communication to the front desk is done by text which I found very convenient, including checkout. Our room was amazing & were very thankful for the ocean view! We had a friend drive up to meet us & we enjoyed the beautiful beach walk & the awesome fire pits. The pool & hot tub were really clean but there was construction going on to make it even nicer. In the morning we took a walk along the beach path to the private beach below where we spotted dolphins, seals, sea otters, turkey vultures, rabbits & many different birds. We finished off our stay with a great breakfast at their restaurant ~ great food, service & views. Definitely recommend this hotel!

  • Aug 22, 2017 by Clare G

    I came in late after making a 10 hr drive. The front desk was so nice... Even giving me one of their fabulous home made cookies. I was upgraded to a second floor with an ocean view. When it was time for bed I was ecstatic! The bed was so comfortable . I wanted to take it home. There Iis access to the beach one hotel down. It's a smaller hotel with a pool, on the waters edge, and the rooms are well appointed. There are great restaurants all over or delivery

  • Aug 21, 2017 by B M

    Price for quality, this place is bar none. The rooms are comfortable, the grounds are amazing, and the staff is warm and welcoming (a special call out to Meesh for being so amazing). We came here after a terrible stay in Morro and decided to spend two days rather than one because we loved it so much.

  • Aug 20, 2017 by Br Macias

    We had a great weekend. We love staying at the Spy Glass Inn. Cant wait to come back. Super clean rooms Ocean front un believable views.

  • Aug 17, 2017 by João C

    The hotel is a typical Inn, in a good location by the sea and just next to a highway exit. Rooms are good with a nice balcony with sea views. There is a mix between new and old styles in the rooms, so I guess they are doing a progressive revamp on it. Restaurant is also good. A very good experience in general.

  • Aug 14, 2017 by Lesley P

    The position cannot be faulted, just wonderful, with views of pelicans and seals. I'd give 5 stars for that and for the staff. However, the website is somewhat misleading as it doesn't really make clear that over half the rooms have no view of the sea, and for us a view of the carpark would have been an upgrade. Ours looked smack onto the side of another building, making it dark and claustrophobic, and with no individual outside space at all ( like a good percentage of the rooms). The room itself was shabby. Holes where hooks had been moved and not filled in, hideous old disused thermodore outlet still on the wall and crooked, splashed paint on woodwork...lack of care in the facility. There were no glasses or mugs for water or coffee, just paper. The fridge was a nightmare, roaring into life on and off all night. Beds however were very comfortable. Staff were excellent and helpful but unable to move us. The new firebowls are wonderful, especially as relaxing in our own space was impossible The separate restaurant was great and good value, especially for breakfast, and the staff were brilliant. Views are spectacular. Would look at other options in the area before returning here. It seems the levels of customer experience are very different and inconsistent. Not what we wanted on our anniversary trip.

  • Aug 13, 2017 by summer818

    My best friend and I stayed at the Spyglass Inn. The minute you walk in you feel the great vibes. The staff at the front desk were amazing. Helpful, friendly and accommodating. We decided to move upstairs, they took care of the change with a smile. The restaurant is so beautiful and the food Was delicious. I recommend the Spyglass, you won't be disappointed.

  • Aug 12, 2017 by Gene A.

    Fish & chips for lunch was so exceptional, we ate there twice during our two week stay in San Luis Obispo.  Traveling with a small dog, it's often difficult to find restaurants that are accommodating with outdoor seating.  The wait staff was especially helpful in seating us where my wife and I and Wrigley were out of the wind and comfortable with an overview of the ocean.  On one occasion, a squall drifted in and we were allowed to move indoors with Wrigley safely away from the rain.  There are other food selections on the menu which other diners apparently enjoyed.  We highly recommend this place for food and view.

  • Aug 12, 2017 by Ronnie C.

    Beautiful location. Staff is helpful and friendly. Rooms are nice and comfortable. Would recommend!

  • Aug 10, 2017 by dutch016

    We stayed here for 1 night and couldn't of picked a better place. The beds were really comfortable and room was clean. We were offered a ground floor room with the benefits of a small seating area outside. It wasn't a sea view room. The sea view rooms would be worth booking though. Only criticism was that room got stuffy and there wasn't air conditioning or ceiling fan and we were a bit reluctant to leave sliding doors open as night. There was a pool you could use as well. Unfortunately we didn't have time. There is a lovely grassed area with seating and fire pits overlooking the sea which was very relaxing. The onsite restaurant is definitely worth a visit. We went for a lovely meal there and breakfast the following day. The views are amazing.

  • Aug 07, 2017 by Victoria M.

    This is a great location, friendly staff and the most comfortable bed EVER!! We had a less than stellar incident at the restaurant which has a different owner. While we were checking out we told the front desk attendant Debbie our story and she was so appalled she did what she could to make the situation right and showed showed true customer service! We can't wait to come back and stay here, but will just frequent another restaurant to eat and drink!

  • Aug 05, 2017 by bentota_29

    We stayed here for 2 nights on our California trip. We would have preferred only 1 night but could only book a 2 night stay. Whilst the setting is lovely only half the rooms have a sea view. We asked for a sea view but there were none available and were put in a ground floor room with a view of the car park and a wall. This made the room dark and oppressive, especially as we were there for 2 nights - really didn't want to relax in the room. Room was comfortable and the bathroom was new. We ate at the restaurant on one night which was nice, nothing to write home about. Nice setting but make sure you ask for a sea view.

  • Aug 04, 2017 by Michelle T.

    Our room is in an odd spot. Right next to an employee breakroom and laundry area. There are carts everywhere. Plus employees are chit chatting away. I can't open my window because of all the employee noise. My room is hot with no AC. Trash cans are full. Maybe employees should stop talking and get to work.

  • Aug 02, 2017 by gamelino

    I love the location as it's just far enough from the hustle and bustle of the center of town. I had a second floor ocean facing room and I have to say that is the only way I'd stay there in the future. If you have kids, a room close to the pool would probably be great but for me it was all about the view and being able to open my sliding door all night to hear the waves crashing. Comfortable, clean room, no complaints to speak of. My bed was very comfortable as were the pillows and linens. Simple bathroom amenities, nothing fancy or special. I ate dinner one night at the on site restaurant and enjoyed it very much. I'd highly recommend this hotel and I will definitely return!

  • Jul 30, 2017 by R. G.

    For everyone that's giving extra stars for the location, stop! This is a review of the hotel itself, not the beautiful view th
