Steps from the beach and downtown Pismo Beach’s pier is the Sandcastle Inn. Providing 69 guestrooms and six oversized suites, the hotel boasts amenities like complimentary breakfast, free Wi-Fi, and rooms outfitted with flat-screen TVs, mini refrigerators, Keurig coffee makers and oceanfront patios. A third floor rooftop deck provides a relaxing place to take in the ocean views, with a cozy fireplace to keep you warm. Bike rentals are available through the hotel to enjoy along the beach. Guests will also find coffee, fruit and freshly baked cookies in the lobby daily. For traditional guest rooms, families will want to request a two queen room. Some of these come with ocean and pier views, and some come with patios or balconies. Suites are studio style with king beds and a queen pull-out sofa in the living space. These have fireplaces and balcony views.

Pleasant beach front hotel. Quick, easy check-in by polite staff. Amazing ocean front view. Hotel is small but cozy. Good size ocean front room and balcony. Small cafe with variety of food with relaxing seating on-site.

My wife and I took a quick get away and stayed here at the Sandcastle. The room was clean and the staff very accommodating. The first night was okay as we did have some noisy upstairs neighbors, but it is what it is. We got up in the morning and went to get some coffee, but the coffee/espresso machine was not working :(. So, that prompted us to take a walk which turned out to be great as the Sandcastle is centrally located and many shops and restaurants are a short walk away.
We came back to our room and saw that they were about to clean our room as the cleaning staff was next door. As we left we said they could clean. Apparently they did not speak English as when returned a few hours later the room was not serviced. However, I did contact the front desk and a cleaning woman came within 10 minutes to service the room. This was a bit inconvenient but not a huge one. We really enjoyed the area and the Sandcastle was okay. Hopefully, they can tweak a few things and this place would go from good to great. Overall though it was a clean room and was right next to the beach and businesses.
