When we got to the Pismo Beach resort, the parking lot was cramped, so I parked on the street until we checked in. Check-in was at the SeaVenture resort. It was quick and painless. I told her my name and received the keys and parking pass. We walked over to the resort where I moved my car into the parking lot. There are only 1-bedroom units at the resort. I had unit #105. There are only a few units with an ocean view, but that wasn’t necessary since I would much rather look at the ocean on the sand or the pier rather than the room.
I found the bathroom disconcerting. The shower-and-tub unit is next to the toilet, placed near the washer-and-dryer unit. I have never seen a washer and dryer in place of a sink. The sink was placed outside in the vanity mirror area. I did not like having to go outside to wash my hands after using the toilet, but I guess that was necessary to save space in order to put in all the desired amenities.
The kitchen was fully stocked. There was a self-cleaning oven, a microwave, and a full-size refrigerator. We went to Scolari’s, the grocery store nearby, and cooked a pizza in the oven. Some resorts do not provide ovens or cookie sheets. This one had everything.
The bedroom had a TV and mirrored closet doors. The closet contained pillows, blankets, an ironing board, and iron. There was a Murphy bed outside in the living room, but we did not utilize it. The Murphy bed would have pulled down on top of the dining table, so the table would have to be moved in order to sleep there. Our particular unit seemed a bit cramped, but it was obvious that it used to be a motel that was reconfigured to become a timeshare resort. The pieces of furniture were a little too big to be in the room. I did enjoy the amenities as cramped as they were.
There was a coupon for $10 off a massage. We did not try it out. There was also a hot tub, but I neglected to bring my bathing suit. The temperature of the water was fairly warm, but not the proper temperature of a hot tub.
From the beach, you can walk up to the SeaVenture which is the first hotel from the beach, then behind it is Worldmark Pismo Beach. It’s also close to wineries, an outlet mall, and Hearst Castle. I would definitely return, but I hope to get an upstairs unit next time.
