“Pismo Beach here come the Carr’s.”
This trip was one we had waited months for. You see initially our trip to Pismo Beach was planned for last fall, but due to the Parsaide fires (read more about it here) our trip was unfortunately postponed. Being able to finally take the trip we felt very thankful. We felt even more thankful for the people who made it possible. Our friends over at Inn At The Pier.
Inn At The Pier is a luxury hotel located in the heart of Pismo Beach. This beautiful hotel is located seconds away from the beach. I mean it’s so close you can listen to the ocean waves crash as you sleep. Which we did every night when we were there. The oceanfront hotel features 104 boutique rooms to choose from including suites and ADA accessible rooms with the most incredible amenities such as large comfortable beds by Simmons and large showers, flat screen TVs, mini coffee bars and fridges, modern day decor, private balconies and my husbands favorite Amazon Echo with Alexa. Aside from the rooms, the hotel has some other pretty cool options as well. An up to date gym for exercise, meeting rooms for parties or events and of course two of the best restaurants in the city. The Rooftop which is a bar adjacent to their sparkling pool that overlooks the entire coastline. With breathtaking views, you can order a drink and take it all in relaxing on their comfy seating or next to the fire pit. Then there’s Blonde. Located inside of the hotel adjacent to the lobby this restaurant features contemporary Pismo dining and mixes family time and fun time with their classic menu. items The hotel was perfect and we hardly ever wanted to leave the room. If it weren’t for our kids dragging us out to the beach every chance they got my husband and I probably would have stayed cuddled up in the room all day. Upon our arrival at the hotel after valet parking our car, we were greeted by the hotel’s manager Kevin He was extremely genuine and took a lot of pride in the hotel. He even took the time to speak to our girls as well. I can only imagine how much work goes into running a hotel so it meant a lot he took the time out of his day to greet us. We were then checked in by the sweetest staff ever. I mean everyone was so amazingly sweet. Our bags were brought to our room for us, we unpacked, explored our bedroom, the hotel then it was time to explore the city.
First stop? Do I even have to tell you? The beach of course. The girls couldn’t wait to get their tiny toes in the sand. The beach was gorgeous it looked really big and I couldn’t help but feel so lucky to able to finally see it in person with my family. It was definitely a surreal moment ill always cherish and remember.
After playing at the beach for a moment our appetites were worked up. The 4-hour drive down played a part in that too. Since we were already out and had heard a ton about Splash Cafe we decided to check it out. Though the line was out the door it moved fast and the food was yummy too. We walked a few blocks exploring and grabbing some sweet treats before heading back to the hotel and calling it a night. I think once we got back in I showered for an hour because the shower at Inn At The Pier was so amazing. The water stayed hot forever and I enjoyed every minute of it until it was time for bed.
