Location: right downtown, steps away from restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, bars, and the Farmer's Market. Convenient parking in city garage a block away. Very accommodating staff eager to meet dietary (gluten free) needs and to recommend local restaurants and sites to see. Breakfast cooked to order with fresh fruit was a real treat. Large rooms with private baths. Property is going dog free which will be a treat for guests with allergies. Location was amazingly quiet considering how many bars a just a block or two away.

Property is showing its age a bit. Carpets on grand staircase leading up to second level need to be replaced; table runner on stand in hallway had hole in it; sinks in the old wash stands are funky and nice but not terribly functional and should be upgraded. AC unit had a hard time keeping room cool during 90+ days. Rooms overlooking Garden Street can be noisy early morning as street sweepers and garbage trucks make their rounds.

This place is within easy walking distance to downtown and several decent restaurants. Although older, everything in the room worked okay.

The guy running the desk was fine registering us and taking our money but after that he avoided us whenever we tried to get assistance e.g unworkable cable TV which we ended-up fixing ourselves. The walkway carpet was old and torn and needed replacement.

The guy running this place shouldn't be running a motel - no people skills and completely unhelpful. The roadway running by the motel has plenty of traffic resulting in a fair bit of noise. The A/C unit worked well with temperature control that shut off automatically.

Overall quiet and the room had a refrigerator

Nobody at the front desk at 11 pm. Had to wait for someone to put pants on (literally) to let us check in. It's a small family owned 17 room hotel so i can understand it.

For the price you get a clean room with a fridge and a comfortable bed. It's small and family owned so don't expect the normal best Western experience protection but I've stayed at big chain Hotels that are much worse and cost more. It's barely a 2 star for sure but for -- bucks in California who cares if the guy had to put pants on before checking you in.

The friendly staff and the location were the most desirable with this hotel.

The price I paid for the hotel was not worth it. I paidxxx including tax for the least expensive room. The cleanliness worried me. Overall it looked neatly kept, but if you looked closely I found hairs in the towels and shower and the beds were hard.

Overall I would not pay what I did to stay here. The beds were very hard. I found hairs in the shower and towels. I might possibly stay for half the price I paid, but I had expected a lot more forxxxx a night.

The location of this hotel is so convenient. We could easily walk to several of our favorite places to eat and is also easy walking distance to beach. View from balcony was great even though telephone lines ran through it but Pismo downtown is old so therefore telephone lines. Hotel serves a more quiet crowd.

The balcony and the view. The room layout was also nice.

Everything was OK. The furnishings, specifically the chairs, could have been more comfortable.

Overall this is a great place. Three levels, with the top floor having great ocean views, although some angles are 'marred' by electrical highlines. Free DVD movies is nice, and closeness to the beach, pier, boardwalk, and eateries make this a place we will return to.

No wifi waaay in back of hotel. Every time you get a discount from this place they put you as far back as possible, even wifi can't come in. I've been going to this place as long as it's been open ,at least once a year, but last two times way back rooms.

Needs maintenance in rooms stat not even working, toilet leaks, tub cracked etc. Nuff said no more of this place.

Spent 4 days with our 7 year old granddaughter! She had a delightful time and wanted to stay longer. Lots of 'kid friendly' activities, pool, beautiful beach ( just right for boogie boarding), giant checker game....cute gifts shops, playground next to the complex and the pier provided enough for her to do. Lovely rooms - clean, comfortable beds...the kitchenette is a real plus when traveling with a child. We will definitely be back. Avila beach, though small... is beautiful!

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!

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.

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.

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

Our room was directly above the check in area and we were awoken many times during the night hearing people talking at the valet check in area. I do not think this space (room 301) should be used as a hotel guest room.

The dishonest $15 'facilities fee' (plus tax added to to that part as well) Really? Its OK to pay a premium for top rated facilities, but BS to be fooled into such a low class billing system. Never again for me!!

I thought this motel was clean and well taken care of. It was by no means a luxury hotel but had all the basics. When I asked to be moved to the second floor they accommodated me.

I wish there was a bit more security... all the windows face the outside, and there is no one monitoring the place besides one person at the front desk.

My overall experience at this hotel was poor. I've stayed in better hotels in Tijuana for the same amount of money. The front desk staff were very rude and disrespectful. My room wasn't ready when I arrived. My room was filthy when I checked in. I was told by the Indian staff that this was the only room they had available so I couldn't check into a different room. There was a huge stain on the carpet, my sheets and blankets had holes in them, my sheets were to big for the bed, the tv guide said I was able to access HBO and I couldn't. I will never stay here again.

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
