Not overly welcoming. Had just stayed in two places where warmly greeted, cookies, coffee, free wine/beer at happy hour, breakfast etc. - not at the Sandcastle. Instead: Coffee plus small bottle of water - 8 dollars. Small glass of mediocre wine 12 dollars. Nice place. Clean. Easy. But didn't feel the love.

Room was fairly clean. Bathroom needed a sweep and room needed a vacuum. Found hair under the plastic cups they give out. Other than that it was a good stay.

Good

My friend assumed a few things and she was wrong, or times changed. No Pool. No Hot tub. Parking wasn't free but $20 added per day. No free breakfast. The TV only played basic cable and HBO. The On Demand didn't work and the TV isn't blue tooth so you can't stream from your phone/iPad. The walls were very thin. Same with the ceiling. I could hear pounding feet after 10pm. And music from the room room next door. If you didn't get to the three fire pits by 4pm, I doubt you'd get to sit there at all. Seems like when one family sat there, they took it over for the night. Bring a space heater and a long extension cord for your own balcony instead! We liked that they had free bikes to use. The location is great. The parking was easy. We had to ask for toiletry refills and clean towels but that's not an issue. Easy walk to the beach, the pier and the main road for food and entertainment. I'd look abit harder for a place to stay that offered more amenities before staying there again, for the price they charge. But its fairly convenient. And they supply ear plugs.

Our Dad, Grandfather gifts us with trips. Our go to tour guide. Once again Pismo Beach Sandcastle Hotel was rigjt on with his excellent taste in accommodations..

I was expecting this property to be like the pictures. I was so excited and looked forward to my stay. It turns out the location has two buildings, the building advertised has nicer rooms and furnitures. The other building is worse than a motel. The furnitures are very old and the mattress would sink in when I laid down on it. I regret my stay and I’ll never stay there again. And you have to have for parking as well. Which I didn’t mind, but I was very disappointed in the room that we received. I should’ve read believed the bad reviews on here

I like the location and the cleanliness

Nice hotel. Great location. Clean and comfortable

Staff did not want to be there and showed it, charged for things that were not disclosed in advance

Loved being steps from beach and pier

Would definitely stay again.

The room and hotel were great.... a great location as well.... my only issue is.... if you are going to pay that much then the rooms should be in top shape. Our shower had mold on all corners. Paint chipping on the bottom of the bathroom door and when you shower and pull the lever to have the water head dispense, the bottom faucet is still pouring

Good choice for location. Bed was excellent as well as breakfasts. Only problem I can see is the bathroom was not handicap equipped.

We loved the location and the beach view. Will definitely be staying here again.

Hotel was beautiful and very clean, right on the beach.
