Mid coastal stop

The hotel is very attractive and very convenient to the freeway. But we had 2 rooms and one had a "view" of a wall! Paid the same for each and feel that room should have been considerably less in rate! The dining area seemed like eating in a lobby. It was too plain . The server was very nice though! Also, thought the decor could have been brighter in the rooms. Maybe some blue or green tones instead of drab terra cotta on the wall.

Good family get away

The room was very comfortable and neat. However, our shower got the floor wet, and when I mopped up the water with a towel, the floor was not clean at all. I liked the idea of the light bar next to the door for house keeping, door bell, and do not disturb. I set the house keeping sign at 10:30 AM and they had not come by 4:15PM. Pool and spa were great. The front desk were very pleasant and helpful...directions;food suggestion, and answered all our questions.

Weekend getaway

My boyfriend and I wanted a quiet scenic getaway for the weekend, so we made the trip up to pismo beach. This hotel was affordable an clean and the location was great. Since we were only going to be there a few days we didn't want to make a big fuss but the only negatives about this experience were the noise/noises coming from approve and the staff. We weren't greeted or acknowledged when we would enter/leave the hotel throughtout the day, not once. The only time we spoke to someone was upon check in. We dont need to be greeted everytime but at least once or twice, a quick "hello" would have been nice. As for the noise, it sounded like someone was throwing boxes on the floor. This went on throughout our time there and there was another noise coming from the pipes/plumbing. We could've complained but we didn't want to be a bother especially since the staff wasn't exactly inviting or welcoming, so we just dealt with it. It wasn't so unbearable. We would recommend this place simply for the location and cleanliness.

family visit

We stayed 1 night and arrived a little later due to bad weather. The regular coffee in the lobby was gone as well as anything else that was available at check in. I thought the stay included a breakfast so I will be sure to keep a copy of all amenities next time I book. The room was clean, quiet and pleasant. The hotel is located on the east side of the freeway so you do have to drive to eat, shop or sight see. I would stay again.

Hilton Garden Inn Pismo Beach

We spent one night at this Hilton while visiting nearby colleges. It was comfortable, clean, and the staff was helpful. The hotel is fairly new and it's well kept. I would definitely recommend a stay here.

Great Weekend Getaway

My wife and i wanted to get near the ocean. We really enjoyed our stay, especially the bed. Very comfortable, one of those beds you can adjust the firmness to your individual needs. We will be back. Very clean and great quiet location right off the 101 highway.

Family Getaway

We only stayed a short time -less than 24 hours but staff was curteous and friendly. Rooms were very clean and spacious. If you are going for relaxing day by the pool I might not reccomend as the freeway is right there but otherwise a great experience.
