    The Inn at the Cove is a quaint, boutique inn style motel that serves as an ideal getaway spot. The rooms are very nice and have enough creature comforts for an enjoyable stay, including a microwave, mini fridge and very comfortable bed. The views are great, but bring binoculars, the free-to-use pair that are in the room are no more than toys, and ours was broken to boot.

    We were there for the weekend just to relax during the COVID-19 thing. This hotel only has 52 rooms (which is GREAT), away from the city crowd, but yet close to everything you need - restaurant, park, gas station, etc. Beach is down the cove for a minute walk. Room is super nice & clean. Staffs are friendly, knowledgeable, and always there to help. We live in So Cal but I don't think we have a nice hotel like this place. I will definitely take my family to Pismo and stay there again!

    We spent 3 lovely days with a beautiful view of the cliffs and the ocean. Exactly what we were looking for. Easy walk to town and Shell Beach for dining. The staff was very helpful.
