New, Clean and Comfy A review of Hilton Garden Inn Pismo Beach
You never know when you book online, but the Mission Inn was a happy surprise. This new (Jan 07) hotel is on the east side of Hwy 101 bordering a very nice residential neighborhood. The drive to the beach or the outlets is under 5 minutes so the location is good.
The hotel is immaculate. Lovely lobby, super clean and comfy rooms and a snack shop that charges grocery prices for snacks and juice (instead of inflated hotel gift shop prices.)
The nicest surprise was that the stay included free breakfast - a hefty buffet (no continental here). There were eggs, bacon, biscuits and gravy, potatoes and all the other breakfast stuff. The breakfast crew working was incredibly attentive - nothing ever ran out. Plus, each adult in the room gets coupons for two free drinks in the lobby in the evening (5:30-9:30).
The rooms smelled, looked and were super clean. Staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Parking is easy.
