Spacious, well-appointed room with free extras (HBO and Internet) A review of Hilton Garden Inn Pismo Beach
Through Travelzoo.com we got a wonderful rate of $89/night, including two queen beds and breakfasts for the four of us.
The room was spacious, clean and tasteful. Normally we would pay around $200/night for this kind of room, naturally depending on the location.
Our kids liked the free HBO movies, and we adults appreciated the free Internet access. These kind of additional services, that are rarely free, added to our pleasure.
As is usual for our family, we arrived late at breakfast, and the selection had been picked over quite carefully. However, the selection was pretty good, with eggs, bacon, home fried potatoes, and an assortment of breads (bagels, wheat bread, etc.).
A bit loud were the bathroom upstairs and heating/HVAC system in our room - the true signs of whether a hotel has been built well or cheaply.
We were glad that we did not pay extra for the "ocean view" as this view is actually right on top of 101.
All in all, we would definitely go back there if we returned to Pismo Beach.
However, we probably won't return to Pismo Beach because this town is not nearly as nice as SLO or Cambria, also as reflected by the clientele.
