Disappointed I didn’t get a room with a view when I made reservation monthins in advance and was there early to check in. Would be nice to know which room you have so as not to be disappointed.

Calif. vacation

Pros: The size of the room, the location and the great, helpful staff.
Cons: Not a thing!
Location: Pismo Lighthouse Suites is in a great location for access to the beach, local restaurants and many Central California venues.
We stayed at 5 different hotels during our vacation and The Pismo Lighthouse Suites was by far the best of the 5! Not only is it a great, beautiful location, but the room was larger than we expected (2 bedrooms AND 2 baths!) gorgeously decorated, great amenities and super nice staff. I can't wait to stay here again and next time for MUCH longer! We travel a lot and it takes a lot to impress us, and we all were very impressed with this facility!

Great Location

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
We stayed here for our anniversary, and it was perfect. Great views, huge room, nice comfortable bed. Could work for a romantic getaway, but also worked well for a family with the size of the rooms.

The hotel was convenient and close to everything, when traveling with two little children.

Pros: Close restaurants
Cons: Poor breakfast
The staff was friendly, and helpful. The location was conveniently close to restaurants, and walking distance to the beach. My only criticism would be that I expected the free breakfast to offer a better variety, especially for the price you pay for a suite. Quality inn has a better free breakfast.

Nice hotel, but excellent if you splurge for an ocean-front room

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
Cons: Noisy
This was a very nice hotel, and I enjoyed having two separate rooms for sleeping. However, we did not splurge for an ocean-facing suite and wish we had. One bedroom in our suite faced the game area and was fine. However, the other bedroom faced Hwy 101, which is a very busy stretch of road and quite noisy. We had to keep the window in that room closed all night so we were not subjected to road noise. It's too late now, but I wish this property had been designed to give more rooms a direct ocean view (like the Best Western next door) instead of only 1/3 of the rooms. The game area looked fun for kids or groups. The pool was on the small side, but faced the ocean. The free breakfast was a nice perk.

Great Family Hotel!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants
Pismo Lighthouse Suites, is a great family hotel, with suites large enough for families, and lots of great activities available on site for children. There is miniature putting green, ping pong tables, badminton court, life size chess board, and swimming pool. There's also easy access to beach from the cliffs, but you do have to climb up and down a lot of stairs. Great location!

Great Hotel, But...

We loved the hotel...location was awesome, rooms were spacious (we have 4 kids so you can believe us!), breakfast was pretty good...the ONLY draw back, although major, was housekeeping left our door open after cleaning. When I went to management to let them know so they can alert housekeeping, the frontdesk clerk became defensive and was very apathetic to our concern, giving excuses like, "Oh, the door gets stuck like that." My husband had several hundred dollars worth of stuff for entertainment in the room. No apology or feeling like they cared. I even sent a notice to the property managers and never heard from them. They don't care about my stuff, why should I care about theirs?

Stayed at the hotel with my family. Long story short, when we left someone slid the window to our room open. The window lined a main entry hallway. Even though the window was closed and the lock was in the locked position, it would not lock. We notified hotel night manager and showed him. We filed a police report. Filed claim with hotel's insurance. Hotel manager told insurance company window worked fine. They claim no responsibility for the integrity of the hotel. I would not recommend staying here. Dead bolt did not lock and window did not lock. Very poor response or regard for safety by hotel management.
