The ocean view and location is excellent. Since there is no AC, there’s no privacy if you open the windows/blinds in the room where we stayed. But overall the place is good.

I’ll start with a couple of positives. It was dog friendly, $25 per night for pup. Great location just a short walk down to Pismo beach and close to the Pier. Now the negatives. The room was scorching hot and no AC or ability to open windows. Thought I was gonna pass out. The shower was clogged so I couldn’t shower for too long without it overflowing. Didn’t realize they unplugged the fridge so when I put some food in it and got it out the next day it was spoiled and stinky. Toilet seat was stained. Didn’t make me feel clean with all of the things going on.
