Great complimentary breakfast. Terrific outdoor games (badminton, putting green, ping pong, etc). Easy access to the beach.
Very nice hotel, on a cliff top over beautiful Pismo beach.... The beach is easily accesible via a wooden stair structure shared by a couple more hotels... ( Lighthouse Suites is at the end of the line of hotels, so no neighbours wondering in front of your hotel rooms!) Great and helpful staff, in general a very joyful and relaxed atmosphere! Rooms are large (very much so) and clean, beds are comfy. Breakfast is, howeve,r not up to par.... Not bad to be honest, but just a few bread rolls, jam, butter, 3 types of fruit and yoghurt (coffee and orange juice too), are way far away from the promised "Continental breakfast"!! Plastic cuttlery and cups further support this case.
My husband and I stayed at the suite for his birthday weekend. The suite was very nice, clean and comfortable. Bigger than what I expected....breakfast was amazing I will return the summer with my kids next time because it was very kid friendly. I requested partial view of the ocean but that may be misleading since I really didn't see the ocean view from my window
Great location, with private beach access. Every room is facing the water and has a balcony so you have the most relaxing and amazing sunset/sunrise views. You're a short drive to the shell beach restaurants and to grover beach's downtown area with more great bars and restaurants. 10 minutes to the dunes. Highly suggested, we will definitely be back :)
Schöner Pool mit Whirlpool. Zum Einkaufen ist gegenüber ein Outlet. Das Frühstück war in Ordnung. Dieses Hotel war das Schlechteste, was wir in unserem dreiwöchigem Urlaub in den USA hatten!! Das Zimmer war dunkel und häßlich und hatte eine dünne Verbindungstür zum Nebenzimmer und man hat jedes Wort vom Nachbarn gehört! Es war klamm und überall war Schimmel. Der Komfort entspricht auf keinem Fall einem Hotel!
Das bequemste Bett, tolles Personal und toller Whirlpool mit Wasserfall
das motel liegt direkt am highway 1 mit tollem blick auf den pacifik. das personal war sehr nett und hilfsbereit. sehr grosszügige Anlage. Shop gleich nenenan. Restaurant und kaminzimer zum Relaxen. Das Zimmer naja. Das Bett, die Hölle, war meine erste schlaflose Nacht seit ewig, vor Grusel (weiss nicht wer schon alles in der Wäsche geschlafen hatte)
This place was awesome they upgraded me to an oceanfront view. The beach access is very convenient.
Loved it The lighting No plugs
The view of the ocean was spectacular. Location and beach access was great. The pool and the three hot tubs were very nice. The people staying in the room on top of ours. They woke up around 5 am and made too much noise.
Rooms were clean, well appointed and recently renovated. I left my phone charger in the room. Staff committed to look into it with housekeeping and get back to me. It has been 6 days and I have not gotten the follow up promised.
The ocean view also included construction site. Our last visit was in August with my husband, he was ill but he enjoyed the view from our room, it was perfect. He passed away in November. This trip was meant as healing and remembering. I was so very disappointed in my stay.
Everything. From l, lovation, cleanliness, staff, view. Everything was amazing. There are a lot of hotels on the same street but this one looks and feels like a resort for a fair price. Defiantly going back!
The location was good. Our fire alarm went off in the middle of the night, the air conditioner was super noisy, the walls were super thin we could hear everything, and there wasn't any counter space in the bathroom. I notified the staff and they just said, "i'm sorry." We won't be returining.
The view was spectacular, and the hot tubs/pool/patios were excellent. Very relaxing evening by the ocean. The walls were a little thin, could hear the neighboring room's TV at 7am, and I do'n't think it was turned up very loud... So this really depends on who's next to you.
Great location...Beautiful ocean views... Get an ocean view room or you room will feel a little bit dark & dreary.
Hotel staff was great... rooms where great and the view was amazing
View from our room was fabulous. The outdoor area beautiful with lots of seating and they had fires going morning and evening. Every person who worked there were happy to be of service. Continental breakfast was good and kept replenished. Will definitely stay again. Not really the hotel's fault but when tide is high you can't access beach from their stairs but you are able to walk a couple of streets over to access a public staircase.
Scenery & Wildlife!!! People in general, :)
Luxury, Privacy, good food, friendly staff and beautiful location. Not very occupied although the surrounding hotels appeared to be very busy. In time this find will be discovered and we will have to share, will definately travel to this resort again. I understand the units were originally intended for sale but have changed to this resort, wish we could own one. One problem that the Hotel did straighten out was a deserved change of rooms, our selected room was a 'partial view' you would have had to walk out onto deck turn your head over to the far right and then you could spot the ocean between 2 buildings. They said it was a mistake and was being corrected that department, which I did not feel was my problem, so they were willing to honor what I felt was the proper view for the rate I agreed to. This started the trip off on the right note and the rest of the stay was a pleasure.
While looking for options to spend our third anniversary night (which happened to be on a weekend this year) one of our friends suggested we try out Dolphin Bay Resort. Looking at the website, we decided to give this a try. We made a phone call to book a reservation for one night and happen to talk to the Manager, Erica. She was very helpful with the reservation process & after hearing that it was our anniversary she said she would make our stay special. We spent one night at the resort and we were very happy with our stay. Erica even had the room ready couple of hours before and arranged some special stuff for our anniversary. We got the best 1BR suite and the views were ecstatic. We would highly recommend the resort to anyone who would want to spend a day or two with their special one.
On our friend's recommendation, we decided to spend our third anniversary night at The Dolphin Bay Inn Resort. We were initially bit skeptical on the price, but the comfort, reception and the wonderful time both me & my wife experienced is worth mentioning. We got in touch with Erica who is the Manager at the Resort. She ensure in every possible way she could that our stay would be memorable. From getting us the best 1BR suite, to having it ready before time, to patiently attending all our requests, she was phenomenal. We would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to spend the special night with your special one. We would definitely love to come back again Thanks, Debopriya & Abhijit From Mountain View, CA
We're seasoned first class travelers, and we LOVE this place! We've been 3 times now, in the last year. Dolphin Bay has so much going for it: The rooms are casual/chic/comfortable (we always stay in the 3rd flr corner penthouse) and it feels more like a home than a hotel room. The location is super-relaxing, gorgeous views, and we love watching the dolphins swim by, the surfers surf, etc., from our balcony. All the food we've had was excellent, and customer service has been great as well. It just has a great vibe-I don't know how else to put it. And we've been to the 4 Seasons, the Wynn, The Ritz-all kinds of stellar hotels. We love the Doplhin because it feels like home! Check out the killer gourmet grocery store half a block away, and drive onto the pier (yes, onto it, and park there) at Avila Beach. (you can see it from the hotel) Tons of marine life-sea lions, etc, live around the pier, and under it; there's an old-school restaurant and fish market there, etc. Just a fun diversio...
This hotel made me feel at home and not at a hotel. From the moment we pulled up at he door to the time we left we were treated as guests should be treated - welcomed and appreciated. The rooms were well cleaned and maintained. This is the place to stay for someone who wants to relax and be pampered.
We drove through Pismo during a busy weekend and were fearful that this hotel would be in the heart of the busy section. As it turned out the hotel was just to the north of the action and ended up to be quite the oasis, away from the hectic Pismo Beach area. The room was amazing. One of the best suites style rooms we've stayed at. The hotel staff was great and very helpful. The rooms have relly nice full kitchens so you can eat in if you choose. I suggest finding the large grocery store about 1 mile south off hwy101 if you want to buy groceries. There is a small refined grocery store about 2 blocks from the hotel but it's very....very expensive. Great areas to explore if you drive north towards Ragged Point.
By far the best hotel on the central coast. The rooms are immaculate and the hotel in general cannot be beat.
Came here for our anniversary and was very pleased with the luxurious apartment-like room we had, amazing view and top notch customer service. The surrounding area offered plenty to do when we weren't enjoying the view from our amazing room or walking along the beach. Will most definitely stay here again!
My wife and I really enjoyed our room and the oceanfront view! We were so close to the ocean we left the sliding glass door open all night and fell asleep to the sound of the waves crashing and seeing the moonlight reflect off the ocean.The staff where very friendly and accommodating, I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who is looking for great customer service and great views of the ocean without breaking your wallet! The seagulls can get pretty loud but that comes with the territory of being next to the ocean!
The views were amazing. the grounds were very clean and well kept. staff was very nice and accommodating. it was a perfect get-away from the city. I booked the trip through Kayak but the hotel staff charged me for the stay when i checked in. i am still waiting for my refund from the hotel.
The location was great. The first room they gave us was not what I consider an ocean view. It was more like the view of the hotel to the south, a palm tree and a sliver of an ocean view. I paid for a room with an ocean view. The second room was great. Full ocean view. Yay!
