This place rocks!

The location cannot be beat! You can walk on the silky sand for miles and it starts a minute from your door, that close! Walk down to all the happening areas: restaurants, pier, bars, ice cream, all within minutes! The staff was very friendly and the room was comfortable. Couldn't ask for more.


No matter how long our stay, it is always too short.

Sandcastle Inn is located right on the beach. The rooms are cozy, well kept and comfortable. The ocean view rooms with a balcony provide the perfect place to enjoy the surf. The staff are friendly and helpful and strive to provide their guests with a pleasant stay. The location is right next to the pier, dining and shopping.


Love this place!!!

Sitting on our private patio having coffee in the mornings and looking at the ocean was amazing. The service and staff are extremely nice. We will definitely make this our hotel for any future trips to Pismo. A very short walk to the pier and downtown makes it very convenient.
