Verified TripAdvisor Reviews of the Tides Pismo Beach
Very nice place to stay. Updated smartly in the ways that count. Clean. Pretty. Extremely comfortable bed. Warm welcome. I enjoyed my stay.
The staff was friendly and welcoming. The room was clean, well stocked, and offered an affordable rate to stay right near the beach. I'll be going back very soon!
The firepits were great at night, listening to the waves and cooking smores. Couldn't have asked for a better night!
