Oxford Suites Pismo Beach
Travel Blogs from Pismo Beach
Oh man, het leven is goed hier... Gisteren kwamen we aan in Carmel. Ik hou niet zo van het woord pittoresk maar het is met afstand het beste woord om dit stadje te beschrijven. De huisjes en straten lijken allemaal recht uit een sprookjesboek te komen. Alsof Hans en grietje elk moment achter de bosjes vandaan konden springen. Jammer genoeg kwamen …

What an interesting day, we started the morning all bundled up trying to warm up, by the middle of the day we were hot. The weather here changes very quickly as one moves inland. It was quite cool as we ate breakfast. I put on the terry housecoat to keep warm as I did not bring a sweater, while a few hous later it was 98 degrees. Due to the cool weather here we drove to San Luis Obisio. It was amazing to watch the temperature gauge climb. In a matter of minutes, the temperature ...
... few times to take in the scenery. We saw a beach full of seals. The smell was so strong and horrible. But what a sight - they look like jelly on top of each other! Never expected to see as many seals in one go. The hotel we booked is comfortable but we won't stay more then one night because of the weather. If the rain does not stop we will drive straight to Los ...
... into our hotel, the Sandcastle Inn. This hotel is right on the beach and our room overlooks the beach. We went for a walk on the pier, and watched the sun set over the ocean. Lucy checked out the water, which was very cold; apparently an assortment of surfers were not deterred.
Lucy, Gary and I then had a spa...or should we say a jacuzzi. This spa was outdoors but overlooked the ocean, so we watched the last rays of sun while we ...

Watch out for undisclosed fees!
The Oxford Suites is a dated motel, about what you would expect for the price. Agree with other reviewer that this is not the quietest place to stay. Booked through Expedia for $79/night. At checkout, was surprised by a $12 surcharge. The checkout clerk did not know why the price had increased and asked a coworker. Apparently they charge an additional $6 per child. This was not disclosed at time of reservation nor was it disclosed at check-in. I will be staying elsewhere in the future.
Overall, I would say that the Oxford suites are semi decent. This hotel is perfect for budget minded large families and Older people (50+) who desire a low key location. Breakfast was great, wake up really early, other wise the line is out the door and the sitting area is rather small. The evening reception was pleasant too. Staff served nachos, salsa, light dinner (macaroni and cheese, pasta, salad). The Bartender could have attempted to be somewhat more likable, but what she lack in personality she made up for with her bartending skills. She can make a killer strawberry margarita. Accomodations were adequate. Large living room and bedrooms, 2 televisions. Don't take too long of a shower, after 10 mins, the water turns scalding hot. The sinks, toilet and shower drain have the tendency to back up as well. Housekeeping lack communication with lobby staff. They knocked on our door 4 times a day, unaware that the room was occupied. The pool is very small, had about 6 kids with snorkeling gear the majority of the time. The jacuzzi also had it's share of snorkelors.This hotel is ok as last minute choice, but COUPLEs with no children, I suggest sleeping on the beach. You will get more peace, because this hotel is very very active with children and pets.
Great time at the Oxford Suites
We had a wonderful time at this hotel. We had a two room suite. We slept in one room and the kids slept in the other room on a sleep sofa. We had a great fresh breakfast in the morning of eggs, oatmeal, pancakes, etc. We drove off for the day to the beach. In the afternoon we used the beautiful pool and jacuzzi. Then we had free cocktail hour with more food there. The only negative for me was that there was not full curtains in the kids room so the street light came in at night.
Very Nice Little Place
For the price, this was better than I could have ever hoped. What a cute little hotel, with a beautiful courtyard, pool, flowers and a nice lobby, and a computer for leisurely internet use. The rooms were spacious, clean and enjoyable. There was a laundry room that was very convenient. There were even movies for rent in the gift shop and the staff was helpful and nice. I would definitely recommend this little gem in Pismo.
weekend travelling on the coast, no reservation, 10 pm,,,,,,,,we saw a "vacancy" sign. a very nice suite. quiet night. great breakfast. reasonable price. we usually look for something near the beach or shopping but the accommodations and price were worth the location.
Found hotel on Expedia. Spent 1 week in Pismo for a family vacation. We had our 3 children ages 15, 5, and 2. The room was great for all. The teenager slept on the pullout bed in the front area. Our room had 2 queen beds in the bedroom for the 2 younger children and my husband and myself. The cook to order breakfast was delicious and lot's of variety. Something different on the grill everyday. The pool area was great with a "kids: pool about 1 foot deep for the children. They liked the small pool so much that they preferred it over the beach! Last night was a bit loud when a slew of young baseball players and parents arrived. Had young boys knocking on the door at 10:30pm, parents partying in the courtyard, and LOT's of noise by all without much being done by mgmt despite several calls. Overall, great place to stay and would recommend to anyone, especially those with children.
Great vale - close to everything and lots of room
Stayed at the Oxford Suites for 2 nights with my 2 kids age 7 and 9. Decent place with lots of room. Breakfast was good and the happy hour with drinks and food was a nice touch. Pool was small but fine for the kids to play in and the hot tub was good. Close to Pismo Beach "downtown" and the shopping outlets. Right off the 101, convenient, but you might want a room in the back.
Excellent motel, enjoyed the stay
Very nice place to stay. We have a dog and needed a place that would take pets. Rooms were very nice and comfortable. Oh, if you like a big breakfast, enjoy the breakfast buffet. The staff is very nice and helpful. If your looking for a nice and affordable place to go, the oxford suites would be a excellent choice.
Oxford Suites in Pismo Beach. The rooms were spacious. The breakfast offered a good variety of foods (eggs, sausage, bacon, potatoes as well as toast or cereal). The happy hour food was pretty good, the drinks are beer or wine (Inglenook) but thought it was a great gesture of true hospitality. We took dogs with us and the usual rules applied, don't leave them alone in the room, pay for any damage they do and keep them on a leash at all times. I felt the room was clean and well equiped.
The location was convenient to the Pismo Beach Outlet mall as well as a grocery store - walking distance. Then within driving distance is the beach, the pier, other shops and the sand dunes. We had a great time at this location and will return again.
A Nice Alternative.
Spacious rooms with easy access to the main highway. Limited `happy hour but a nice complementary breakfast. Good value.
