We arrived with our key and code to the secure parking garage in hand. Not being familiar with the area ... was very nice to feel secure. Hearing the ambient music playing on the exterior really set the mood for this Tuscan Villa style resort. Everything throughout was tastefully & meticulously adorned with lush landscapes. Our “suite”, which is actually a nice apartment with a kitchen, laundry facilities and patio, was equally wonderful …. and well done. There was obviously no expense spared from floor to ceiling. There is beautiful tile, wood work & paintings throughout. A photo journal of the history of Pismo Beach decorated the hallway, which we really enjoyed looking at. Regarding the town: There is so much to do and enjoy in Pismo Beach ... what a wonderful little beach town. The hotel is so close to everything .... we walked everywhere. Being an experienced traveler (maybe too experienced) .... for just a weekend or an extended stay …. I think we just found our new home-away-from-home.
