Each carefully designed guest suite features stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and downtown Cayucos, gourmet kitchens, fine furnishings, and upscale amenities including: bath and skincare products by Gilchrist & Soames, goose down duvets and pillows, custom spa robes, and a bottle of local wine with any stay of two or more nights. Fireplaces and jet soaking tubs are available in select suites. Our boutique hotel now offers mobile keys, 'virtual' check-in, and self-check-out via your smartphone.

We stayed at Pier View on our anniversary trip and I just cannot say enough about this beautiful hotel, gorgeous beach views, easy access to the beach (where we spent most of our time) great restaurants and all of the boutiques that are connected to the hotel. Just an amazing hidden gem.
The room we stayed in was the studio with a view, I’ll start with the view since that’s what I was looking forward to, it did not disappoint! The view from inside the room was just stunning, open the curtains and your backdrop is the ocean, for as far as you can see. The view from the balcony made you feel like you were right there, you could hear the waves crashing at night.The balcony was huge, had a huge sofa daybed with plenty of seating, the sunset from our balcony was breathtaking.
The room itself was amazing! It was the perfect size for an anniversary getaway, it had a full size kitchen that was not only functional, but beautiful, with everything you need to cook. The bed was so comfortable and roomy, the hot tub in the bathroom was the perfect way to end our very busy days. We loved the record player and the fireplace, the rooms seemed almost soundproof as we never heard anyone else while we were in our room.
The owner, Jason was so accommodating and nice, he wanted to make sure that everything was perfect, you don’t find that often. The staff always checked to see if we needed towels or anything and when they left towels, they would leave them in a cute basket with a note, I will attach pictures of the notes we got while staying there.
Customer service was impeccable from start to finish, we even decided to stay another night and Jason made it happen.
We will make that our annual anniversary getaway from this point on and we will definitely be renting one of their larger units for family vacations.
Well worth ever single penny.

We really enjoyed our stay here! The kitchen was incredible! So much room and fully appointed. When Sea Shanty delivered our dinner, we enjoyed our meal on nice plates and bowls with real silverware!
The bed was really comfortable, both my wife and I enjoyed a fantastic night's sleep.
If you order their cupcakes, be aware you're getting 12 of the most yummy cupcakes this side of heaven! Sprinkle a little bit of sea salt on top to make them even better!
They have an incredible florist on call that makes custom bouquets to surprise that special someone when you first walk through the door! She's amazing!
Although the room was spacious, the choices of where to sit was limited. The couch lounger out on the deck was nice, but once the evening turned cold, sitting on it was no longer an option unless you bring along real warm clothes as the ocean temp will lower the daytime highs very quickly. The nice robes that come with the room do in a pinch for awhile.
The seats in the dining area were only comfortable for a short time.
The water heater is set too high, a person could get seriously burned in the shower or even rinsing off dishes!
All that said, the question remains: would we return?
For sure! Cayucos is a wonderful place to visit and Pier View Suites is a great base to launch from!

This is a very nicely remodeled hotel with great rooms and the view from the balcony is excellent. Our room was a studio with a full kitchen and fireplace. The doors opened to a lovely balcony with seating and a beautiful view of the ocean for watching the sunset. The system is set up to be contactless with keys provided to your smartphone via Bluetooth. I never saw what you would call a front desk for the hotel. The folks cleaning the room did an excellent job and when we saw them they asked if we needed anything refreshed.

Parking is available both on the street and behind the hotel. During the busy season, street parking could be a problem, There are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance so once you park the car you really don't need it again until you are ready to leave.

They do provide a complimentary bottle of wine when you arrive.

It was seriously almost perfect. Across the street from the beach, with an ocean view, where we could relax to the sound of the waves at night. Easy walking distance to all the restaurants and cafes. Full kitchen and living room and a lovely oceanview balcony. Comfortable beds. Cutely and simply decorated. Dogs allowed (in two specific rooms called the bungalows, but I'm not sure why because they are not separate from the rest of the building). Contactless entry and check-out and a responsive front desk staff whenever we called. We were there at the end of August and it didn't feel crowded, busy, or noisy.

Our only requests for improvement were that the Wifi was really inconsistent and spotty, they don't have regular TV or cable so if you want to watch something you have to log into a streaming service with your own account, and I get the record player for the ambiance but a bluetooth speaker would have been better.

Loved the ambiance, price, and convenience of this small oceanside inn. It's comfortable and unfussy and a perfect match for this unfussy and comfortable beach town in central California. We stayed in Suite A, which was on the top floor. The room comes with a full kitchen beautifully maintained and tall chairs around the counter; the suite is large enough for two and features a comfortable bed (but soft, mushy, mashable pillows - if you're picky, bring your own). Accoutrements include a record player and a TV with Roku (tough getting real news). If you need TV, you'll fare better on your computer with your own cable provider, Netflix, Hulu, etc. The best feature in this room is the balcony and large canopied daybed. Get a bottle of wine, some snacks, a book and plant yourself here, watch the waves, read, snooze, relax ... this is the reason to be here. That and some excellent nearby coffee shops and the Lunada restaurant steps away. The only real downside to this hotel are the towels. They're old and thin and out of sync with the type of luxury this sweet inn aims to provide. Since there's no daily housekeeping, they can spend a bit on updating the towels and linens. Those little details, like their fresh, aromatic soaps and lotions, go a long way. There are some larger, two-bedroom suites here but I can't comment since we didn't get one or see inside one. Oh, and when the tide is low at the beach, you can walk for miles uninterrupted. It's all everything a low key beach getaway should be.

My wife and I stayed in Studio B for 3 nights on our 6th Anniversary. The remodel of the property is beautiful and it is more like staying in your own small apartment with an amazing view of the beach and pier. The outdoor spaces is a wonderful place to relax.

Check in was a breeze and everything was done perfectly so we actually needed no other service for our entire stay, with the exception of the convenient towel replacement.

The city is also the perfect launching point for exploring the area, including the Big Sur drive. You are close tothe convenience of Morro Bay, SLO and Pismo, while also being very close to the start of the Big Sur drive. Only Cambria is closer, but their beach is not like Cayucos.

All in all, a surprisingly great stay.

The only few changes I would make are:
1. The hot water, as another reviewer mentioned, is set way too hot.
2. The water pressure in the shower is too high, usually the opposite is the issue in a hotel, but this one is way too high.
3. Someone in their maid service must have washed the duvet because the down inside each square was formed into a ball. They should replace this.

I highly recommend this property to a couple or family.

The hotel location is super, our patio has a great view of the ocean waves and the smell of the ocean. the rooms are very clean and spacious, the only thing is that the master bathroom is very tiny, we all ended up use the downstairs bathroom instead. it is also nice to walk around the area, some cute bakery and small restaurants, it' s nice and relax. we loved our stay.

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in mid-July 2020. Given the COVID-19 situation, we liked that this hotel has contactless check-in/out and electronic locks controlled by iPhone. Also, after remodeling, they seemed to have added full kitchens in the rooms. This was something that we wanted to not go to restaurants. This feature is hard to find in any other hotel in the area. The location is excellent. The only reason for dropping a star was a not so appealing cabana on the balcony with the upholstery all spotted with wine spills. I would stay at this hotel again next time.

Our family of 4 had a very nice stay at the Pier View Suites in Cayucos. The location was perfect, had beautiful views of the ocean, and there was great information provided in the room about area restaurants and such. The suites were recently renovated, and although the cosmetics were very nice, several of the top outlets were not working, and the WiFi was a bit glitchy. But we dealt with it fine. Overall, our stay was lovely, and we would stay there again.

Pretty expensive, but the hotel is nicely appointed and kept very clean. Also, the staff really goes above and beyond to help you feel comfortable. Highly recommend and would love to go back anytime!

One thing is the additional price for kids is ridiculous, especially if you have kids under 2 who can't sleep on a rollaway - no cribs or pack n plays available.
