    Historical Traveler Reviews Spyglass Inn Pismo Beach

    Overpriced and overrated.

    from

    We spent three nights in a room that smelled of disinfectant. The phone didn't work, the stopper in the tub was broken, and we had to adjust the light bulb to turn on/off the single bedside lamp. For an average of $200 a night you can do a lot better in Pismo. We are there often, just decided to try a new place. Big mistake. Go to the Lighthouse and get your money's worth.

    Worst Ever

    from

    I spend at least 100 days a year in hotel rooms so feel well positioned to comment. The Hotel is Overpriced, Dirty and the Staff need a leason in customer service. We had just finished a Highway 1 trip and have stayed in hotels up and down the coast, this one spoilt our break. To be honest I will sleep in my car before I try this place again.

    Perfect Retreat

    If you want great views, good food, accomidating and friendly staff and our going to the pismo beach area stay here. Best hotel in pismo beach

    Noisiest Place Ever...

    from

    Apparently, if you are in one of the ocean-view rooms in the "front" the Spyglass Inn is a fine place to stay. However, we found it to be an exceptionally noisy facility. The walls have minimal or no sound-proofing and it is as if the folks in the rooms on either side of you are right in your room. We could have carried on conversations with them without any difficulty as if there were no walls. And, when people came out onto the neighboring little proches to use their cellphones, you became an unwilling party to their intimate or business conversations. Late-into-the night porch parties or conversations were something else you unwittingly became a party to. Further, given the configuration of the Inn, most of the rooms open on the parking area and pool area and that leads to a great deal of vehicular and people noise all hours into the night, coupled with a near by service station and Highway 101. All in all, a damn noisy facility.l

    Loved the Spyglass Inn!

    from

    After a long drive up the coastal highway, we arrived on a Tuesday evening, just in time for "All You Can Eat Crablegs" - ONLY ON TUESDAY - thank God it was Tuesday! The BEST crab legs I've ever had! The staff was nice. The views from the restaurant, great! Views from our room - awesome! The property is landscaped well. There was a little constuction going on to the north of us, but was not bothersome. The sound of the waves at night, from the balcony, wonderful! The moon was even shining on the waves rolling in, which really topped it off! Beautiful! I'm a cat lover, so naturally, I loved the resident cats on property. The room was clean, comfortable and well decorated. The toiletries in the bathroom, were a nice added extra touch. (not your average cheap stuff) Did not notice the "thin walls" I've read in some of the other reviews.

    I'm not an easy person to impress, when it comes to hotels - very particular - and I thought the place was great!

    Between the 4 of us, traveling together - we all agreed - it was a great place to stay! Would definately recommend it and would visit again.

    Oh my gosh!!

    While placing the reservation on line I requested an oceanview but didn't think much about it because the room was only $99.00. The staff was so professional and attentive. They wore matching shirts. Big red apples were in a basket at the front desk. As we entered the room and pulled back the curtains, we both looked at each other in awe-the most beautiful view of the ocean and a nice park. We became somewhat worried about the hotels nearby outdoor resturant patio but no problems arose. The crashing of the waves were powerful throughout our stay so we did not notice if the walls were thin. There were robes in the closet and chairs on the balcony. The bathroom was clean and the sheets were soooo soft-very important to me. No funky smells. A real nice place to stay.

    Pretty nice, but thin walls

    from

    Our stay at the Spyglass was overall very nice. Because the hotel wasn't full, our room was upgraded and we had a nice view of the water and the property. The room is nice and very spacious. There is free high speed internet also which I really appreciated. The only problem with the room was that the walls are very thin. When the family of four returned to their room, I could hear every word the children and the parents were saying. Luckily, they went to bed pretty early! Overall, though, a great hotel in such a nice location. Good cookies in reception also!

    Great view, smelled a little funny

    from

    This place had a fantastic view, and great "theming" with a wonderful garden and a neat old rowboat the kids really enjoyed playing in. But the rooms were a little grungy, the pool was placed unattractively in the parking lot, and the place smelled mildewy and ultimately we decided to stay only one night and go somewhere newer and nicer (and cheaper!) -- the Pismo Lighthouse Suites.

    Pismo Beach is a great place, though. Many people stop there one night on the way up or down the coast, but we recommend it as a destination.

    More than expected!

    from

    This place was absolutely perfect, very quiet, relaxing place. Restraunt was so-so but overall an excellent place to stay and not too expensive. From the outside it actually looks rustic, and old fashioned, but the rooms are very nicely decorated and beds are comfy :)

    Great View, Good Restaurant, No Soundproofing

    from

    Booked last-minute reservation here on 9/9/04. The room and motel are neutrally-seashore decorated with fireplaces providing the heating for chilly nights. The motel restaurant was good, especially for breakfast. Biggest drawback: no soundproofing-could hear every toilet-flush, amorous couple, barking dog, etc. If sleep is important: beware!

    Pismo Beach - a very cool quaint town just off the Pacific Coast Highway! We stumbled on this place as we needed to stop for food! We had some food and headed down to the pier to see if we could find some ice cream, boy did we find ice cream. Ultimate ice cream was found!

But its seems to be just as bad whether I'm doing something or not so I might as well "do something"! Walking and riding bicycles and kayaking are the favorites.

    So we started our road trip today, from LA to San Fran - the coastal road on highway 1 is just stunning - Lots of golden beaches!

    We drove until 3ish stopping at loads of places on the way - we stopped at Pismo beach where Rob was able to do his first lot of kite surfing - the beach is so big so we were allowed to drive right on there - we then sat and watched the sunset while listening to tiesto - lush!
