    « OK for a layover. »

    My daughter and I stopped here to break up a trip from Big Sur to Orange County. The room was large; the bed was comfortable. There were not enough blankets and we had to request more. The heater settings were confusing. The housekeeping was slipshod. Lampshades were askew; bed skirts were off center, giving an impression of indifference. The free breakfast was standard with little imagination. The breakfast room did not have enough seating. The Casa Grande was my first choice after a fondly remembered earlier visit. It is not now.

    « We stayed here because it was dog-friendly »

    We had googled the property and saw that it had an very nice dog walking area out back. We were unable to reserve one of the rooms near it because those rooms did not allow dogs. The desk clerk was helpful in showing us how to get to the area via an elevator so we were OK getting our disabled dog out to the area. The employees here do a very good job, the groundskeepers, maids, and woman in charge of the breakfast were terrific. Our room was just OK. It did have a slight smell from having been a smoking room up until a year ago but it wasn't awful. We may or may not stay here again. We spent some time investigating other dog friendly properties in the area.

    « Excellent Place to Stay »

    We have stayed at this hotel many times and have always been well pleased. It is clean, well decorated, and pleasant staff. Convenient right off the 101. We have never had an issue on any of of stays but, the particular room we stayed in this last time happened to be right at the staircase and it was very noisy as guests came and went. On future visits we would be sure not to get that room. Other than that this is a wonderful place to stay.

    For my birthday, my family and I decided to go visit a city near the ocean. We found the best, beautiful hotel near Pismo Beach at Arroyo Grande. I had the most wonderful time celebrating my birthday with my family and accommodating hosts. Thank you staff of the Best Western Casa Grande Inn. You made my day brighter....

    Not bad. Old but clean. Needs some remodeling but clean and quiet. Rooms are a little small and should be updated. Bathrooms need some tender loving care. The person who checked us in was very nice and the breakfast was good.

    Spent overnight at this great place. It was not like the newest place, but it was clean, and staff was very, very nice. Now that we have found this place, I would definitely go back. So close to Pismo!

    Good jump off point for central coast. Short drive to some excellent restaurants (Jockos, AJ Spurs, McClintocks, et.al.) and wineries. Shopping within walking distance. Beach fun at the dunes or Pismo. Golf is a short drive. You can stay at the hotel for the heated pool and spa or go dancing in Pismo or San Louis. The hotel is an easy on and off the highway. Has become more popular since we began staying there 15 years ago.

    we recently stayed at the Casa Grande, and really enjoyed the visit. Grounds are very pretty -> spanish look with nice landscaping. Rooms are recently renovated. we had a suite with sitting room that was spacious and comfortable. Great Location for exploring the coast. Arroyo Grande and Grover Beach are nice places, and you're minutes from Pismo and Avila Beach

    « stay in the hotel »

    The front desk person was not there during the check in. he came and checked as in and did not give the key cards and went away. we called him again . he gave us the keys . i reserved 2 separate rooms. the first one was the right key, the second key was wrong and did not open the room. this room was in front of the elevator and all night long you can hear '' going up'' , ''going down''

    « Satisfied For The 2nd Time! »

    This is a quite hotel just a bit up the hill and far enough from the busy main streets and strip mall action that you won't hear any noise. Compare that to the Hampton Inn (another brand I often stay at) which is right on the busy street. This property is a well-maintained Spanish Mediterranean style. I took the King room overlooking the swimming pool on the top floor. The room is very big and has a separate sitting area where the kitchenette is and a second television. This is where we set up the 'baby room' and it all worked out great!

    « Unable to shower or bathe »

    Handle for shower was missing and stopper for tub was broken. for almost $200 per night this was very unacceptable. we asked for another room and was told there were any vacancies, yet I was able to secure another reservation on online.

    « Tranquility at Pismo Beach »

    Beautiful landscaping & comfortable rooms at the hotel. Staff was polite, and helpful. We only spent one night, wish it was longer. The pool area was nice. You can see they were fixing the hotel. Cannot wait to see it finished.

    Stayed a couple nights here. Clean, quiet. Nice free breakfast in the mornings. Close to freeway. Really nice staff. A little pricey on the weekends but not too bad for a weeknight stay. Would totally stay here again!

    My wife and I researched housing in this area and used your motel as a base for phone and internet communications. We especially liked the location for easy driving and entertainment options. We will use this BW again in October when we return to complete real estate negotiations. I also like accruing guest reward points for all travel options. D Marshall

    « Happy in Arroyo Grande »

    It is close to golf courses and great restaurants that we enjoy. So close to the highway with easy access in both directions. Staff was very nice. Breakfast in the am was more than I hoped for. Able to fill the need for that meal right there.

    « Very attractive property along the coast »

    The property is very nice with a pleasant pool, decent breakfast, not far from good restaurants and a short drive to the beach. The rooms are clean and comfortable with a fridge and adequate work space.

    « Convenient overnighter »

    We landed in LA the day we checked in and found this place a convenient location for our first stop on HW1 on our way towards San Francisco. The room was rather large with a good sized shower/bath combo, the beds were comfortable and the room itself was clean and easy to access. There was a walmart just up the road for our road trip necessities. We ventured to Pismo beach for world famous clam chowder and a walk along the pier which is only 10 mins up the road. The breakfast was ok but not great and this was our first taste of American coffee. If you can call it that??. Over all its a good spot though and would stay again.

    « Arroyo Grande Best Western »

    We selected the hotel because of it's location and we have stayed at some nice Best Westerns. The staff at this best western was pleasant, helpful, and polite; The property however was tired and in desperate need of updating. The property looks worn as do the rooms. The bathrooms were old and some mold- clearly needed to be replaced. The beds were ok but about 3 years past their replacement date - old and somewhat lumpy.

    « Nice accommodations »

    The hotel was clean and our room was large. It was nice to be able to do laundry while there. It was close to Pismo Beach. The front desk provided some quick instructions and a map of the area so Pismo Beach was easy to find. Breakfast was what you would expect for this type of hotel. We follow a vegan diet so our choices were limited, but we expected that. A sign did say they had gluten free items and non-dairy milk available. We had showed up for breakfast with our carton of almond milk, so we didn't inquire about the non-dairy option. There were slivered almonds, raisins and granola for oatmeal toppings, which was a nice treat. We had to ask for peanut butter for our toast and we were each given a single-serving package out of a drawer, as it wasn't sitting out with the jams.

    « A pleasant surprise! »

    We were on our way back from San Francisco to catch our plane from LA the next day and chose this hotel more for its proximity than anything else. But it turned out to be one of the nicest hotels we stayed at. The rooms were large, clean and well appointed with a big bathroom. The free cookies and tea and coffee in the foyer were an unexpected bonus and the staff were lovely. Breakfast was included and there was a good choice. It also turned out to be ideally located to nearby outlet malls and stores for some last minute shopping. Not the cheapest hotel but a nice way to end our trip.

    « Comfortable, great price, but needs upgrages »

    Great prices overall, especially for location. However, hotel needs bathroom, carpet and bed upgrades. Ease of check-in and pleased with amenities. Great for a quick stay and not planning on staying in room for a lengthy period of time.

    « One night stay »

    Fast reception, explained everything, gave us all information we needed, room needs more lighting, to dark, old furniture has specific smell, a lot of parking spaces, breakfast was good. Great location, close to highway 1, easy to find.

    « Hacienda style »

    As intermediate step between San Francisco and Los Angeles, we spend 2 nights here. It looks like a hacienda, but tends more to a motel like hotel. Some might consider it outdated, others call it cosy. Helpful personnel.

    « Old »

    Beautiful buildings but old and slightly musty rooms. Check in was unfriendly. Bed was softer than I liked. We had corner 2br suite that was spacious and reasonably priced but I'm not sure I'd stay here again. Nice pool and hot tub. Hot tub was foamy though and there were not enough pool towels. Someone stole mine ?? Breakfast was usual free crap

    « Location, Location, Location »

    Arroyo Grande and Pismo are gorgeous! Favorites of mine and we had accumulated enough Best Western points to get a free room here. The only hotel in the five citys that would honor our points in summer peak season. A big bonus considering its a 300 bucks a room place. I should say, they charge that much. The room was not worth that. Kinda old and outdated and badly in need of a modernization, with no extra towels or soap, not even a phone book, which we though was weird. Maybe someone stole it. Now, Im not saying it was bad, Not at all. Just not a 300 dollar a night room. That said the hotel and grounds are spectacular! The lobby is extravagantly beautiful, and the pool is awesome. And Breakfast was very good! The check in staff here was fantastic! We had booked trough headquarters and the wrong date was booked. The hotel was near sold out and a great effort was made to ensure we would still be able to stay. I was VERY impressed with the staff. I feel the most impressive charity is done when one thinks no one is watching, and I equate the staff here, just about bending over backward to, essentially give us a free room. They in fact, turned away potential paying customers to accommodate Best Western Rewards members.Top notch!

    « HORRIBLE!!! »

    Had to find a local hotel because we were having work done in our house. This hotel was close and a better price than others in the area -- I realize it is high price summer rates but it was ridiculous what this place charges! It had dirty, stained carpeting, molding shower doors, poor quality linens, air conditioning and bathroom fan EXTREMELY LOUD! UGH!!! I didn't even bother taking a shower it was so bad! Plus the rooms -- bathroom in particular is SO cramped!!! It's really sad because from the outside and the hotel lobby you would think it would be a nice place! Desperately needs renovating! Would NOT recommend! WAY overpriced!

    « Beautiful Little Retreat »

    This place was a nice get away. They had a beautiful courtyard with a walkway surrounded by flowers. The running water fountains added a nice ambiance. The rooms were nice, a little worn, but very clean. They had a nice free breakfast. Cereal, fruit, eggs, bacon, and waffles. The staff in the breakfast room were attentive and friendly. The hotel is close to the shopping outlets and all the fun in Pismo. We are definitely going back!!

    « Good for the Price »

    They have good prices and staff at this location and I will most likely stay there again when in the area. However if you have allergies to animals there was need for allergy meds for our son and an more then we are used to needing when so close to the ocean. I think it is great they let people stay with pets because they are part of a family but think they should set aside rooms that do not allow pets for those that have allergies and breathing problems.

    « Very beautiful »

    Expensive but very beautiful hotel with great service. Bed was not the most comfortable and shower left some to be desired, but clean, with helpful staff. Would consider staying there again but given nature of the trip might look for a less expensive option.

    « Conveniently located, friendly staff »

    This BW is conveniently located right off the 101. We had a double family room which consisted of a large living space with king bed and pull out sofa sleeper, a separate bedroom with a queen bed, and the bath. Bathroom had only a shower which was kind of a bummer with the kids. Our room comfortably accommodated 4 adults and 3 children ages 1, 1, and 4. The staff provided two pack & plays for the little ones. Living space had mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker and sink. Not bad. A couple things we didn't really like was that the sofa sleeper was very very old and uncomfortable. Fortunately though, it was good enough for the 4 year old but i really can't see how a teenager or adult could sleep on it. Also, the wi-fi is awful. You are better off using your own data. We couldn't even play games on our phones and I wouldn't even bother trying to stream any movies or shows off of Netflix or YouTube. BW definitely needs to upgrade this feature. Shower was large with bench seating, a plus. Continental breakfast was about what you'd expect although more fresh fruit would be nice. "Cookie hour" in the lobby from 4-6 is another nice touch. All staff interactions were friendly and the housekeepers did a good job servicing the room. The price point was competitive with other hotels in the area (a bit pricey), but with the breakfast, fridge and microwave, we felt it was a good deal. The pool looked nice but we didn't use it. Overall, a nice place at a fair price. I would definitely recommend to others.

    « unclean and unsanitary »

    carpet was filthy and our bare feet were black. there were stains all over. linens were stained and had holes. room had odor and toilet repeatedly clogged. there was no tv channel list and only one children's station with one or two programs per day. no "do not disturb sign" and no laundry bags and insufficient towels for number of people staying there.

    « Interesting place with some character! »

    I recently stayed here for 2 nights while traveling for work. The lobby of the hotel is very nice and not your typical chain hotel. I had one of the 5 rooms that are upstairs in the lobby area. There is no elevator so you must go up and down the stairs. I liked the room location because there were only 5 rooms here so it was very mellow and quiet. I never saw another guest in the hallway or stairs. The room was up against the road but it didn't bother me because the a/c drowned out any road noise. The room was larger than average. It was old but it appeared to have been renovated recently. The carpet seemed clean and new. The room itself seemed clean! The bed was comfortable and the linens and pillows were very clean and fresh. The room had 2 bathroom sinks which was a nice upgrade. The people working at the front desk were friendly and always said 'hello' every time we came and went. I could see some people not liking the location of the room because of the steep staircase, but it didn't bother me. The pool was loud and filled with kids/families every time we walked by going to the car. The cookies and coffee in the lobby was a nice touch. Great location... very close to Pismo Beach which is just a few miles away. My biggest complaint was the absolutely horrible water pressure in the shower. Probably one of the worst showers ever. It was impossible to take a quick shower because there was so little water. It was so bad that I would probably stay somewhere else to not have to deal with the lack of water pressure and that is pretty sad because I did like the rest of the experience here.

    « Really nice experience at this hotel! »

    We were very happy with this hotel. Our room was nice - king size bed, couch, desk area, coffee table, frig, microwave, & mini coffee maker. Staff were very friendly and accomodating. Loved the free continental breakfast in the morning with lots of choices - eggs, bacon, waffles, bagels, muffins, cereal, toast, fruit, yogurt. There's free coffee/hot tea all day in the lobby and they have cookies from 2-4.

    « Beautiful Hotel »

    My family and I stayed at this hotel for one night on our way up to San Francisco. We arrived late and left early the next day, but we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is modeled after a Spanish hacienda and is beautifully decorated!! Our room was clean and comfortable, with adjustable A/C and a nice TV. Wi-fi is free and fast. The only complaint I have about the room is the low water pressure in the shower, but this was a minor issue. Although we didn't use it, the pool and hot tub looked clean and fun. The continental breakfast in the morning was delicious and offered several options, including eggs, bacon, waffles, breads, and coffee (and much more). The price we paid was reasonable (I booked through Hotels.com) and our stay was very comfortable. The hotel is located in between Grover and Pismo beaches, and is close to several restaurants and tourist attractions, including the Pismo pier. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, from a quick 1-night stay, to a longer period of time!!

    « Old but very nice »

    This is a great place to stay. Away from the busy part of beaches, yet close. We stay here every year while visiting friends at Pismo Coast Village. Golf is close. Cookies at 4 are a nice touch. Coffee always out and breakfast has a HUGE variety to choose from.

    « Pet friendly kennel hotel »

    Although the hotel is pet friendly, the hotel will charge you a $20 fee to put you in a room that has not been remodeled and smells like a kennel. We let the hotel staff know--via a call--that we where traveling with a small dog. Upon checkin, they wanted me to sign an acknowledgement there would be a $200 fine if I smoked in the room or had an animal in the room. The exterior of the hotel is appealing and I'm sure the remodeled rooms are nicer.

    « Relaxing »

    My experience with the hotel and the room were pleasant I enjoyed the pool and hot tub. It was sometimes busy in the breakfast room, but the breakfast was good. The room I stayed in was clean and nice. The front office people were nice, friendly and helpful, and it was convenient for me.

    « A perfect location »

    We have stayed at this motel several times in the past few years and have enjoyed it each time. It is located in the middle of all the fun things to do in that area. Pismo Beach, Morrow Bay Avalia Beach all within a short drive. Arroyo Grande itself has improved its downtown area to include many nice wine tasting places, coffee houses and great eating establishments. If you are going to visit that area don't forget the Casa Grande Inn.

    « Awesome »

    One of the best BW in which I have ever stayed. Very well kept. Very clean rooms and surroundings. Breakfast was OK. Could have been better but it's better than nothing. Parking is small. It gets pretty crowded. Anyways, We loved it. Our only regret was not having more time to spend in this area and this hotel.

    « overall had a good stay »

    The hotel had a very good breakfast selection, with many food choices to choose from. The desk service people were very helpful and nice they went out of there way to be nice and helpful. The location was in a good area next to some nice restaurant.

    « Relocation Exploration »

    This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this BW. Our room appeared to be one of the recently updated and very comfortable. We travel with our Dog and so we have to take whatever dog friendly room that is available and always is just as good as any other. We had a problem with the Shower and received a discount as a result, we were surprised and grateful. This hotel is in a great location for restaurants and access to Pismo or Grover Beach. If you want to swim, they have a great pool and spa for your enjoyment.

    The grounds are so pretty and the location is just great for roaming around that area. Only stayed there one night this time but the room was nicely furnished.

    « Large room, heated pool »

    Stayed here on a Saturday night with family. I booked the room through Expedia about a week in advance and it was pretty pricey. We were in an ADA room that had a separate sitting room and a balcony overlooking the pool that had a table and chairs. The room had a fridge, microwave, and sofa bed which was pretty worn on the outside and uncomfortable to sleep on. The bed was fine and the room was clean. There was only a shower. Free parking, wifi, and breakfast. There were 2 breakfast rooms. We got there a little after 9 AM and got a table. They had eggs and bacon which were not that good. You could make your own waffles though, and they had cereal, muffins, bagels, yogurt, juice, and coffee. The pool was heated and they had a good size hot tub. Easy access to the 101 and Grover Beach was a 10 minute drive away. Stores and restaurants nearby. Recommend to book in advance, mid-week, and/or off season for more reasonable rates.

    « Great Experience »

    We stayed there in June for one night. Close to Grover Beach. The hotel is very nice with a spanish look. Front desk clerk was very nice. Room was very nice with plenty of room.

    « Very accommodating and affordable »

    We arrived late and left early. The room was very well equipped, comfortable and clean. The grounds were very nice and well kept, beckoning a walk. The breakfast room was busy and for good reason. Our only regret is that we wish we would have planned on staying here for more than one night just to get some R&R. Maybe another time..

    nice property, clean room, good bed, great breakfast in small room, we encountered a couple of issues which were all resolved quickly and with no hassle, easy freeway access and close to Trader Joe's and food

    « Good quality for a good price »

    This hotel is just off the 101, but it is far enough away from the freeway, there is no noise. It is beautiful. It has a mission look and feel. It's in the town of Arroyo Grande, but it is a few blocks from Grover Beach, which is practically Pismo Beach. It's close to everything...shopping, restaurants, the beach. I had business at the San Luis Obispo Airport and SLO hotels were much more expensive. This hotel was only a 15 min drive away to the airport.

    « Not your usual Best Western... »

    ...this place is unique. The room was really big and had a separate bedroom. There were two breakfast areas and a nice pool that you could sit by. Coffee, tea, and water in the Lobby at all times. Plus they put out cookies in the afternoon. Nice touches that gives this place a feel that someone has pride of ownership.

    « Expected as per price »

    Looks good from the outside. Room is pretty average though. You get what you pay for. Has a pool but didn't get time to use it. Also, was full of children. Parking can be a concern specially if you arrive late at night. :)

    « Better than Expected »

    Better than I expected for a 3-star property. Check-in gentleman was super accommodating, informative, and funny. Nice big lobby with waters, coffee, cookies in the evening. Room was clean, the AC worked quickly, refridge, ice machines close by. All was very, very nice. For one of the lower priced hotels in the area, this one was delightful. We were there for a wedding fairly close-by, all worked well.

    « surprising hotel gem »

    My husband and I booked via TripAdvisor and were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. This BW had the feel of a western/Mexican theme. The bed was really comfortable, the room very clean, quiet, breakfast was good. It was also just off the highway so easy to find. There was an excellent restaurant that we walked to that the hotel staff had recommended. We were going to the Pismo Beach car show-which was only a 10 min drive away so very convenient too. We highly recommend this hotel and would return ourselves.

    My great grandson just loved the clean pool and I enjoyed the hot tub!! The beds are so comfortable and its very clean !! We go to Pismo every year for my birthday in June and I wouldn't stay any were else. Even if its a little far from beach it's worth it's just nice there!! I've told a lot of my friends and they too stayed there and they say they like it there!!

    « Best Western Casa Grande Inn »

    Have been here many times and it is good quality at a reasonable price. Will stay again in the future as we have family in Arroyo Grande. The complementary breakfast had a variety and was served in a comfortable room.

    « Restless Night »

    Booked this for one night and was impressed with the attractive courtyard area and the western-themed office & commons area, where we ended up having a nice breakfast in the morning. Our room was another story. Although clean, it was small and dark, with a bed that was not comfortable. Our sleep was frequently interrupted by some sort of electric transformer sort of noise that emanated from the bathroom area. Perhaps we were near a mechanical room; can't say. Best part of our stay was leaving in the morning.

    « Nice place, but not ADA compliant »

    We stayed here as a couple, along with my 94 yr old dad. It's a nice place: clean, comfortable beds, you can open a window for ventilation rather than use the below- window AC box. We all slept well. The breakfast was OK; very tasty scrambled eggs, three kinds of fruit, they had raisin bran so there was a carb choice beyond low fiber sweet muffins and sugary cereals. We've stayed here three times before, while visiting relatives nearby. The con: it was probably built in the 70s or early 80s, and hasn't been updated to meet current ADA guidelines. If there is a trip hazard, they don't fix it, they just paint it red, trying to warn you (and acknowledging liability). With my dad's increasing age and frailty he doesn't lift his feet as high as he should. He also doesn't like to acknowledge that he's had any physical decline. So he tries to go up the step to get to the main entrance for the Sunday breakfast room: he trips, falls, skins his knee. The usual breakfast room didn't have enough seats for the 3 of us Sun am, so we went to use the alternate breakfast room on the 2nd floor, where we find there is no elevator access for a man with mobility problems. He struggles up the stairs. We were happy a bathroom was adjacent to that breakfast room for quick access, though. What is needed is remediation of the trip hazards and more designated disabled parking spaces in the back of the lower building. And probably two or three designated disability breakfast seating areas in the lower breakfast area on Sundays. They need to do this ASAP before 1) anyone else gets hurt and 2) the notorious litigation- happy ADA advocates profiled recently in the news find this place and file a lawsuit, costing this establishment tens of thousands of dollars.

    « Best thing about it: the first glance »

    Best thing about it: the first glance. It looks very inviting and is quietly located assuring a silent night. Parking is convenient, too and rooms are large enough by far. Well, on the other hand, there is nothing that you could do in walking distance. Breakfast is rather disapointing. Pricy for what the deilver. Pool looked nice.

    « I expected more for the price »

    The rooms were clean but small. The bathroom didn't have a tub. In general, the room was very dark. The lighting in the dressing area outside the bathroom was very dim and yellow in color. Not good for getting dressed and make up. Parking was a problem. Our room was on the front of the hotel, but there wasn't enough parking. We had to go around back and walk a much farther distance to our room. The parking area was only one way in, so when we found that there weren't any spaces, we had to back out ... not good! Overall, OK but not great. The staff were very friendly.

    On my way to see my sick father and had to stop for the night. I saw this Best Western and knew that would be the place. Best Western is one of my two go tos so that was the way to go. I used my points and had a great room and cookies too even though it was after the time. Nice place to stay even though it is very large.

    « Ok for an overnighter »

    The staff was friendly, especially Mark. He was helpful on the phone and greeted us warmly when we checked in. This is an older motel, but the room was clean. The beds were hard as rocks though. (Glad we were only there for one night.) Complimentary breakfast was the usual dry cereals, powdered scrambled eggs, bacon, yogurt, assorted breads, and a waffle maker. It's good if you're not picky or are famished. We were in town for a wedding, so it served our purpose of needing a place to stay overnight. I don't think we'd stay here again though. This is a good motel for families because the rate was decent, there's a pool and breakfast is included. TIP: We stayed here in May. The weather in Arroyo Grande was very chilly and breezy. Bring coats and jackets. Don't let the sunshine fool you that it'll be warm. The front desk staff said the same thing!

    This wonderful hotel gave us two rooms in one.

    We have stayed here before and found it to be clean, comfortable and the staff are polite. It is close to our purpose of being here. We will continue to stay here. My suggestion would be to change breakfast times until 10:00 AM. Not a deal breaker but we wouldn't have to hurry to make it to breakfast before it closes at 9:30 AM

    « Enjoyable stay for a quick visit »

    This was a one-night stay for us as we were passing through. The hotel was well-appointed and maintained. We had limited interactions with the staff, but they were always pleasant and helpful. The breakfast bar was nicely laid out and had a little something for everyone. We would stay here again.

    « Simply Marvelous »

    I was extremely tired when I arrived at this hotel and I was met with caring and warm people. I am a Red Cross volunteer and I had traveled a long way after working a disaster; hence the tired aspect. Everyone was so kind upon check in and check out. The accommodations were wonderful and I felt safe, refreshed and ready to attack another day after spending it with you all. Thank you.

    « Disappointed this time »

    I have stayed here at this hotel a few times now. Unfortunately each time has become increasingly disappointing. The first time I enjoyed a beautiful pool view room with a balcony and the most comfortable bed of any hotel bed ever. The next visit was a pretty standard room experience and worth the price but nothing special. The third stay was a strange room that had two bedrooms, not sure why I was given that room but it was ok other than the old sofa and the bed being old and uncomfortable. This is my forth stay here and this is by far the least desirable room I have been paid for... Old furniture, no outlets convenient for electronics, a bathroom that needs remodeling... And the bed less than the comfort I expect at Best Western. I know they are in the process of remodeling so there is hope for future stays to be better. I can't wait to see if my next time here will come close to the expectations set for me when I first visited.

    « Spacious Accomodations »

    We have been staying at the Best Western Casa Grande Inn for many years. This hotel is convenient to San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach and the wine country. We stayed in one of the family suite rooms that have two separate rooms. This hotel is a great value for the two room suites as compared to others on the Central Coast. Another couple shared the suite with us that had not stayed at this hotel before that weekend. They were very impressed with the accommodations, the buffet breakfast and location for the cost. We plan to return to this hotel the next time we are in the area.

    « Wonderful service, great value hotel »

    We stayed here overnight on our way up the Pacific Coast highway and were very impressed with the level of service and value we got for the price. Upon checking in, the staff were warm and friendly. Our room was large, with a comfortable king bed, coffee maker, fridge, and microwave. The pool looked nice, although we did not get a chance to use it. Parking near the rooms is plentiful and made loading and unloading the car easy. Breakfast, included in the price, was excellent - juice, coffee, breads, pastries, plus eggs and bacon and a waffle maker. A great value for the price that I most definitely recommend.

    « A Wonderful Stay »

    The Casa Grande Inn is a beautiful hotel located very near to several beaches and hiking spots, and only about an hour away from places like Piedras Blancas seal viewing point, and Hearst Castle. The staff is friendly, complimentary breakfast is delicious, and the pool is great. Despite being just off the 101 freeway, the hotel grounds are quiet and well manicured. We would definitely recommend this hotel experience.

    « Unsatisfied »

    this hotel needs new accommodations; bedding needs to be replaced, the rooms need renovation; the smell is old; The cleaning staff needs to be educated on the timing of a persons stay; They should not be disturbed before the actual exit time automatically. Hours of entering and existing a room is getting way to long. Not being able to enter a room until 3 or 4 in the afternoon is a rip off! The cost of renting a room for the night is really getting out of control and without the value.

    « Old motel, not worthy of the price. »

    This is an old motel, and not what were expecting for the price we paid. Check-in was super slow. Why couldn't they have keys ready like other hotels do? There was no elevator to our room; this is a motel with outside access to the vast majority of rooms. Our room was dated, and the furniture was extremely worn. The room smelled musty and old, like the dated furniture. There were smashed bugs on the walls; you'd think housekeeping or maintenance would care enough to clean them off. The bed was lumpy and overly soft. There were no power outlets on the nightstand. In this modern age of electronics, all hotels should have a simple solution of power hubs on both nightstands for charging phones and devices at bedside. I guess to be expected, since our room was a step back in time--and not in a charming way. The room did have a refrigerator and a microwave. The bathroom had a shower only, which had some mold on the caulking and grout. Housekeeping needs to apply a bit of elbow grease there. The water pressure was OK and the hot water stayed good and hot. The towels were hard and crunchy. The free WiFi worked very well. The hotel had a free, open-air parking lot. I'd only stay here again if desperate. Maybe it was just the night we stayed, but this place is way too pricey for an old, chintzy motel.

    « Think twice before staying here... »

    The exterior of this hotel appeared nice, and so did the pool (which we didn't get a chance to use) but when we checked in, the front staff were rude and distracted. When we got into our room there were dirty used towels on the bathroom floor, and the toilet didn't flush. After THREE phone calls to the front desk (and several hours later) the front desk girl came to our room with a plunger in hand and told us that maintenance had left already. Of course the plunger didn't work so we were switched to a different room (slight upgrade). The new room was cleaner, but the decor and microwave looked as though it was straight out of the 80s. The bed was weak and squeaky, and there were several bugs (on the ceiling) which I had to kill that evening. Fortunately we only had to stay there the one night but I was SO glad to get back to my own bed after this experience.

    Spent one night. A real coffee pot (tho small) was a surprise, since most BW have those dumb single cup hot pots. We only do BW. Bed was comfy. Breakfast was worse than most BW hotels we've stayed at. But we don't choose a place to sleep for breakfast. Very nice western decor.

    Just stay here instead of spending $300 to $700 a night in Pismo Beach. better quality of staff, amenities and very pet friendly. The staff alone from the time you check in until you leave are extremely friendly and if you need anything extra the do not hesitate to get it for you. The 2 queen bed room that I had was very comfortable, clean and even though I was on the first floor I couldn't hear people above me or outside.

    « Pet friendly rooms are filthy and unkempt »

    The hotel is nice in most ways, unless you are traveling with a pet. Then you are stuck in a "pet room". In our case, there were at least a dozen stains on the carpet floor from pets soiling. The furniture is old and tired. It sounded like people were playing basketball upstairs. Since you are paying $20 a day for your pet, the least they could do would be to shampoo the carpet from time to time and give you a room that didn't look like it had ten year old furniture. It was very disappointing considering the premium I paid to have a pet with me.

I won't even mention the hair that also resided in the shower with the above containers. Second thing I noticed were the ants in the bathroom that had my 4 year old screaming like crazy. ?????? The bed was nice and comfortable. I had enough pillows for my family. One had a nasty stain on it brown spots from who knows what!!! ???? Now I had not been in my car for the past 14 or so hours I might have packed all the luggage back up so we could change rooms but I was exhausted.

    « Pick the right room »

    We have had a good experience with this hotel, but this time we were in room 108. The furniture looked to have been salvaged from a dumpster. The bed was rock hard and I think that the pillows were stuffed with golf balls. We could hear the people upstairs chatting, rolling luggage around maybe even bowling by the sound of it. The clocks were all wrong (how irritating is that!!). The room was not clean and had nasty smell. The breakfast room was crowded. We later found that there are two additional breakfast room and it would have been nice to be told that at check in. Not the best BW experience.

The pool and Jacuzzi area was very clean, had access to clean towels, bathrooms, and sauna. The room was pleasant, nothing fancy, but well maintained.

    « Great Choice for Pismo Area »

    We have been coming down to this area for many years and have stayed at various locations from Atascadero down to Pismo Beach. Being best Western Platinum members, we decided to try the BW Casa Grande. It was an excellent decision!. We spent two nights here the weekend before last and most everything was spot on. We booked a suite next to the pool. It is very large with a separate sitting area, with fridge, and large windows looking out onto the pool area. We had the corner, first floor suite which we did not mind at all. There were people above us, but we really didn't hear them at all. The suite has a nice outside patio with tables and chairs where you can enjoy a refreshment. The only thing I would change with that patio would be to put a gate on the small railing which would give us direct access to the pool, instead of having to go out the front door and around the building to access the pool area. The pool was nicely heated and the jacuzzi was good and hot, and the best part is, it's not a small jacuzzi. There is enough room for many guests! The pool area is very attractive. It has great potential if they wanted to build it up even more(music, outside bar, etc). Check in was very easy. The young lady was very pleasant and acknowledged us as BW members. Check out, too, was taken care of in 5 minutes. The only "not perfect" area was the breakfast room. It is fairly small, and on a busy weekend, like ours, it was very crowded. They did, though, anticipate this in advance, and on the Sunday, opened up a second breakfast room in the lobby building-very good planning! Also, don't be a minute late as ice 9:30 came, the breakfast room was locked. It would be nice to open up a little later on weekends and stay open a bit longer. For us, a minor prob. I could still get coffee in the lobby. We come down here often and plan on making the Casa Grande our" go to" hotel. It is very close to Pismo, San Luis, and even Nipomo(Jocko's!).

    « A Gem In Our Own Backyard! »

    We had work being done on our home so had to move out for a few days. We needed to stay local and on advice from friends and reviews on TA, chose the Casa Grande Inn. It is conveniently located near the freeway, shopping and easy access to three South County Cities, Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach and Grover Beach. It is an older hotel, but well maintained, quiet and the staff is excellent. Nice breakfast- standard fare with a beautiful view overlooking the pool area. The rooms are clean and comfortable with abundant storage and seating /eating area as well as a comfortable desk area. The bathroom was updated and I really liked the handheld shower. Lots of pillows on comfortable beds. They have many ADA rooms of all types. There is a very large family play area over the lobby. We will definitely recommend Casa Grande Inn for visiting family and friends.

    « Facade »

    The forced Spanish facade only serves to hide some flaws. Let's start. It took 25 minutes to check in. Only one employee at the desk despite a line of people waiting to check in. When I finally was served I asked for a receipt. Nope. I was told their computer system does not give you a receipt and that I'd have to come back tomorrow. Room 302 is pleasantly adorned. Bed was fine. Water pressure in the shower was ok, but the shower had rusted hinges and mold at the bottom of the sliding door. The complimentary soap is awful. Wifi was ok, but slow. Dish TV was standard. Microwave and small fridge in room. For $111 not sure of the value here and for a bit more I think the Hampton down the street offers better value. BW is ok, but it's not worth seeking out, but it's a viable option for a short stay.

    Very beautiful and nice place to stay. Great customer service with Elizabeth and crew. Loved the cookies and beverages that were accomadated to us. As well as all you can eat free breakfast. Close to the beach and lots of great shopping areas there.

    « Family Oriented »

    I picked this hotel because of the two room suites with non-pullout beds in both rooms. However, that also made it a family hotel and the noise levels were unreal in the early morning. The hotel was fine but the other people staying there woke me up way too early. Not the fault of the establishment and I do recommend it for families.

    Kind and professional staff. Beautiful facility. Value for your dollar unbeatable in this area. Breakfast was included. Heated pool and hot tub in a nice setting. This is a nice setting and probably the best experience I've had.

    I enjoy staying at this hotel when I come to the area. Great breakfast too. We've stayed here before and will every time we visit the area. We like Best Western better than other hotels. The location and value suits our needs when we are here visiting family,

    « Good value for my dollar »

    Met our expectations and breakfast was included so we feel like our business was appreciated. Pismo Beach is close by, but not close enough to walk to. Lots of big box stores close by for amenities so you can easily get your stuff that you forgot to pack.

    Overall great experience in this hotel. My husband left his backpack and the employees took care of it for us. We got the backpack back in few days. Room and other facilites are clean. Employees are courteous. I couldn't be happier.

    It is unfortunate the location of this hotel is a beautiful area and exterior look of the hotel is nice; however thats decieving the guest room was musty and smelly odor, old and dated room furnishings and linens,

    Exterior and landscaping were beautiful but room needs remodeling & the bed was horrible. Average breakfast. Would stay here again if the rooms were remodeled, but we will probably look elsewhere the next time for the price we paid. Location was handy to the downtown and only 9/10's of mile from our son and his wife.

    « Bring your own blanket ! »

    The motel is clean and friendly , hotel rooms are small , towels and accessories are adequate . The problem starts when the weather is chilly, the temperature is LOCKED at 63 degrees. The bed offers double sheeting between a thin Cotton blanket . We literally froze on a less then comfortable. Bed. No return visits for us .

    « One Of My Favorite Hotels »

    I've stayed at this particular hotel twice now. In March 2015, I stayed here to meet family so we could celebrate my birthday. My latest was a last minute, walk-in, "Do-you-have-a-room;I'm-too-tired-to-drive-further" stay. Both stays were wonderful. The staff is helpful and so pleasant I was astounded. I've stayed at Hilton and Marriot hotels (and a Palm Springs time share) that don't have anywhere near the outstanding staff. I love the architecture == this hotel has a kind of hacienda/mission style architecture rather than the boring, beige rectangle box style of most hotels. The lobby is beautiful -- especially during the end of year holidays -- full of local history. The grounds are lovely; the swimming pool and jacuzzi are clean and fresh and relaxing. They provide DELICIOUS coffee (including decaf) and tea in the lobby 24/7 plus fresh cookies at 4pm. There's a good breakfast bar that offers juices, waffles, muffins an other yummies. Full disclosure, I'm vegan so only partake of the orange juice and fruit but heard from non vegans that the breakfast was fine). This is a good value hotel with a lovely ambiance, great staff where middle income and retired folks can spend a restful, comfortable stay (the beds are great) -- and they're dog friendly ($20 fee).

    « Good value for the Pismo area »

    This location is just minutes from the beach but you can save a good amount of money here vs staying at the beachside Best Western. The outside of the Inn is very nice with a pool and a fountain and Spanish-style influence. The lobby was beautifully decorated for the Xmas holiday. Our room, however, was underwhelming. PROs: Clean, remodeled shower, free HBO, blackout curtains, decent free breakfast, in-room microwave CONs: musty attic/old smell, thin blankets, broken heater? Overall it was just ok. We had just stayed at another BW in Northern CA the night before so I couldn't help but compare. I might stay there again but if I did I would insist on a room without that odor (it just makes me feel like the place isn't clean).

    « Friendly staff »

    Good sized room, facilities and friendly staff. Breakfast was nice, pretty standard but to be expected. Would have been a 4/5 but room walls are thin and could hear snoring which lead to other guests banging on walls and doors. Once settled it was fine. Close to pismo which has good beach and nice local shops and restaurants. The steak house restaurant 'A J Spurs' across the road is also great - huge portions!

    We have stayed at the Best Western Casa Grande Inn several times and it has always been a pleasant experience. Easy access, close to local businesses and services. The hotel is also conveniently located to access to local attractions in Grover Beach, Arroyo Grande and Pismo Beach.

    « Best Western Casa Grande Inn, Arroyo Grande, CA »

    This hotel will meet all your expectations. Also, the town of Arroyo Grande, CA is one of the friendliest places we know. Attended the local Christmas parade the evening of Nov. 29th and enjoyed it immensely. We had dinner at McClintock's. The best steak ever and the service is great. Recommended by the locals.

    « Pleasant enough »

    Stayed here for one night on route up the Pacific Coast. The hotel was pleasant and the reception staff were very helpful. The room was a reasonable size, clean with a large comfy bed. Breakfast was the usual offering, nothing out of the ordinary. There was only a small eating area which could easily become fairly crowded. There are a couple of restaurants close by and there is a large shopping mall further up the road which no doubt included other restaurants. We approached Arroyo Grande on Route 1 and found the hotel a little difficult to find, however if approaching on Route 101 the hotel is much easier to locate. We would certainly stay here again if we were in the area.

    « Nice hotel, close to Pismo Beach »

    We had a nice stay at this Best Western during a surf contest we were participating in at Pismo Beach Pier. It was 5 -10 mins drive time to the Pier. The Hotel was large, nice, comfortable, safe. Breakfast room was a bit small and the breakfast was just average. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. There was a fridge and microwave in the room and that was useful. We were on the second floor and it was a little loud in the morning with the people above us. Overall we liked the hotel but I thought $140+a night was too much.

    « Pleasant Weekend in Wine Country »

    Stayed here this past weekend with ladies from my cycling group. Our room was large with two queen beds. The room was a little dated but it was really perfect for our purpose. There were two separate sinks which was really helpful with 3 ladies sharing a room. Also the beds were comfortable with clean linens. There was a microwave and fridge which were nice extras. The jacuzzi is large and perfect after our long rides. The breakfast was standard fare, waffles, eggs, bacon, all fresh, good coffee and many other items to choose from including fresh whole fruit. The staff was wonderful and very attentive. The price was okay but think we might have over paid a bit at $305.00 for 2 nights. The only thing I would say needs real attention is the elevator. We used the stairs because the smell was horrid. Other then this one issue, I would recommend this location. It was just minutes by car to Pismo Beach and wineries.

    « Comfortable and Clean »

    We just recently started staying here again after the free continental breakfast had continued to decline. However, things have picked up again! The continental breakfast has really improved. They have the waffle machines back. They also have great cookies in the evening. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. We are happy to be back.

    « Nicest BW I have stayed at »

    I have no complaints about this property. Staff was extra friendly, especially front desk-Elizabeth:) she gave us a room upgrade to all of our 3 couples traveling together. Rooms were amazing! Very clean. Just one suggestion: put some sofa covers or replace them because the plastic or leather is peeling off. Breakfast was ok but the location was perfect for us. Would definitely recommend and stay there again.

    « Very good balance of comfort and quality »

    I really enjoyed my stay here. the room was smaller, but very comfortable. they need some updates to their rooms, but everything was very clean and everything functioned properly. This Best Western seemed a bit on the pricey side to me, but by far the best hotel I've stayed in in this area for this price range.

    « Nice lobby+pool, rooms not so great »

    When you arrive, this place seems pretty nice. The lobby is very pretty, nice fountain on the grounds, pleasant pool area. The room wasn't very nice though. Bathroom (lacking a tub) needed a decor update, and there was no natural light other than to the outdoor walkway. The elevator utterly reeked, we had to hold our breath every time we used it, it was that bad. Breakfast was standard fare for these sorts of hotels. Overall, felt it was overpriced by about 30%.

    « Passing by »

    We try to stay at Best Westerns when we are on a roadtrip. This Best Western, Casa Grande Inn, has a great location, right off highway 101. It was just what we needed after a long day of driving. Large, very clean, nicely decorated, comfortable room. Very helpful, friendly staff. The grounds are very nice. I would have liked to stay more than one night so I could have explored and enjoyed the very relaxing landscaping.

    « Nice stay but expensive. »

    i called twice to check if i could book a room but it was full and there was no waiting list. i would love it if they have one. the 1 night stay was pleasant. the room was clean and large. everything was in place. i enjoyed their breakfast but would love it if the quality was better. the orange juice i had tasted like water mixed with orange flavor and the scrambled eggs tasted like it wasn't from fresh eggs. overall, it was a nice stay but i would think twice when it comes to $200+ per night. Will definitely go back if there were no other choices around the area.

    We loved staying at this hotel. We had stayed at others in the area but were very happy to find this Best Western in Arroyo Grande. It is kept very clean, including the beautiful pool and Jacuzzi area that are nicely decorated with a working waterfall and ample poolside furniture with towels available for all guests. Super comfortable beds in the suite rooms. We look forward to staying here when we are traveling on business in the area.

    This was our first night stay after a long flight from Australia, we really wanted to be out of LA. The hotel is clean, quiet and comfortable. Check in/out was very easy with no hassle as I had booked early. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Plenty of parking and free wifi to boot. I got a great price so we were very happy, highly recommended to anyone wanting a quiet nights sleep.

    « Excellent customer service »

    Stayed at this hotel on a Friday night back in September 2015. When I went to check in I discovered that I got a smoking room. Apparently I didn't check the box for non-smoking. My mistake. However, after some discussion with management they gave us a larger room that was being converted to non-smoking. The room was very nice. Parking is tight but the grounds are nice. Another major nicety was the fact that it was not next to the freeway like many Hotels are so it was very quiet. Definite do-again.

    A nice small town outside of San Luis Obispo! This motel sure knows how to treat their guests. I had a request to have an alternative method for a bed due to an acute medical issue. I couldn't have asked for such a more "we can do whatever it takes" attitude. The promise the clerk made during the reservation was spot on. The room was clean, large, and comfortable and although we were next to the stairwell it was quiet. The staff responded immediately to requests for additional linen, and any questions asked. There were knowledgable in the area in enable to direct us to restaurants, shopping etc. Shopping for that quick, " we forgot......" very nice stores close in proximity, not run down or dirty. Glad we pushed on past San Luis! Good job Best Western in Arroyo Grande! And thank you.......

    Located just off Hwy 101 (very near Pismo Beach) in the heart of wine country. Beautiful early California décor includes hand painted Talavera pottery and a beautiful pool with waterfall adjacent to the hot tub which makes it easy to keep an eye on the children. Good selection of breakfast items which is included in the room charge! Rooms are immaculate. Great value and location.
