Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The typical hotel look these days skews towards trendy and ultra-contemporary décor. But if quaint charm is more your style, the Cottage Inn by the Sea has it in abundance. The boutique oceanfront hotel takes its inspiration from the English countryside with rustic-chic décor and cozy extras, like a gas fireplace in every room.

Request an ocean-facing room to wake up to the sounds of the Pacific Ocean crashing into the bluffs below. Wrap yourself in one of the hotel’s plush robes, and have a leisurely start to your day. With an in-room coffeemaker, mini-fridge and microwave you could cuddle up all day in front of your fireplace if the mood suits you, and never leave the room.

Head downstairs to fill up on the hearty continental breakfast. Calories don’t count on vacation, so go ahead and make your own waffle one way, then go back for a different combo. Leisurely ways to burn it off include swimming in the heated pool overlooking the ocean or taking a 15-minute stroll along the beach to downtown Pismo.

The 1,370 foot long wooden Pismo Beach Pier is where most of the activity is, with boutiques and eateries clustered around the base.
