The Tides OceanView Inn & Cottages

Where Bright & Contemporary Meets the Coast in Pismo Beach

Ahhh, Pismo Beach… an enchanting little ribbon of California coastline framed by pristine beaches, towering bluffs, and majestic rolling landscapes dotted with vineyards and farms. Once you’re here, it’s like time stands still.

Amidst all this, located on top of the bluffs within walking distance to direct beach access, you will find The Tides OceanView Inn & Cottages. A contemporary throwback among hotels in Pismo, The Tides Inn offers affordable, immaculate, and dog-friendly guest rooms and beach cottages that recall the friendly beach inns of yesteryear.

You'll find little fluff and lots of fun here – our rooms are bright & contemporary, our hospitality is warm and genuine, and our rates, well, let’s just say they leave plenty left over for you to check out everything else Pismo Beach has to offer. Think surfing in the morning, wine tasting in the afternoon, and restaurant options ranging from family-friendly crab shacks to romantic oceanfront bistros.

Come discover Pismo Beach as it has been experienced for generations at the Tides OceanView Inn & Cottages.
