    One of the best

    Rooms are large and lovely with astonishing views. The coves is heart and soul settling with a private beach for your dog.

    My favourite place for Fido

    Omg. I can’t say enough good things about this place. My pups were treated like royalty: photos upon arrival, a dog bed and bowl, love and adoration from all staff. Sometimes you stay in a place and you feel like the staff just tolerate the pups, well this place genuinely loves ALL the dogs! If I could give it ten bones, I would! I can’t wait to go back and enjoy the cliffs, the bird life, the incredible views and the peace away from bustling Pismo.

    Happy Corgi

    Ranger the corgi enjoyed his stay. There were plenty of things to sniff like bunnies, ground squirrels and the roosting pelicans with their guano breezes. The walk along the seaside bluffs towards Shell Beach were perfect. Sad to see rat poison bait boxes on the property though and right next to the bird preserve.

    They love dogs

    We chose this hotel because of it’s canine friendliness reviews. We weren’t disappointed. First off they have a white board in the lobby with all their furry guests names on it. Our room had a welcome card covered in paws prints welcoming our puppy. They had a dog bed to borrow and a food bowl to keep. Located within a short distance of our room we’re two separate potty areas, complete with bags and a trash receptacle. A+

    We (the pups) took our moms to celebrate one of our mom's big birthday! They loved it just as much as we did. The staff was super friendly to us too. Our room had the best ocean views! And we could walk to so many dog friendly places. We love the Dinosaur Park. The Inn at the Cove is right next to it.

    Restful stay

    We had a great room with a wonderful view. They gave us a dog bed and food bowl, but we didn't use either of them.

    Great views!

    We had room 808 which is an end room on the upper level. Very convenient since that is the parking level also. Nice little balcony to watch the waves and birds and they even provide a set of binoculars for when the dolphins come to visit the Cove.

    Loved it

    Amazing room with balconies overlooking the cliffs and Pacific Ocean. Great staff,breakfast,pool and a private beach. We stayed for a week so the $100 one time pet fee was very reasonable. Definitely a new go to hotel for us.

    Good spot

    Booked through BringFido and everything with the reservation was fine. The room was good and the location is great along the path and right at the Cove. They had me sign a bunch of forms about the dog, saying I wouldn't steal the dog bowls or dog bed in the room but when I got to the room neither was there.

    Inn at the Cove is perfect if you are traveling with pets, the staff is TERRIFIC, really petfriendly, thanks bringfido for the recommendation.

    The rooms have a wonderful view and there are plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy the ocean and wildlife.
