I can't believe I've never noticed this hotel. I always stayed in Avila at the other two hotels but after recent disappointments, went on the hunt for another location. This is it and so much more. You will get ocean views, a beautiful park like manicured backyard with a spa and dining available without having to get into the car. It's away from the more scudzy part of Pismo, it's more toward the Avila high end crowd, so don't worry about the stigma of staying in Pismo. We didn't want to leave campus. It's more of a relaxing destination place because you won't want to leave. You don't need air conditioning because you are right on the Pacific! Only 64 degrees when we pulled up at 2 in the afternoon - Napa was 106 degrees. Enjoy this coastal treasure with the peace to match.

Dolphin Bay is a great place to stay for families. The on-site restaurant Lido is so good, we would go whether staying here or not. Staff and service is very friendly and helpful! Splurge on an ocean view...

Hotel rooms with washers/dryers and full kitchens are going to attract families. We brought ours. First thing I noticed was the glass decorations everywhere, corded shades, sharp corners etc. in the room, exposed wires and plugs -- no thought to child safety. We made do, but that was disappointing especially since they had a pack-n-play waiting for us in the room which told us they saw we had kids. Other hotels address these issues. The next shortcoming was the staff. I always appreciate the hard work of those performing staff services, but I got the impression that they were short handed. A lot of little shortcomings that added up: When we had a glass break in our room, it took 2 hours and 4 calls to get housekeeping to sweep up the mess. When we ordered room service, our $3 "toast" was 2 un-toasted slices of bread with no butter or jam -- and our $12 "carafe" of coffee was 1/2 full. We were next to the restaurant; yet, room service took 1+ hour... There were no sand toys provided upon checkin (cf. Ritz Kids); yet, we met people who received such toys at checkin (meaning we were short-changed)... Given the price and limited amenities, I would expect a better staffed and nicer facility. I would also point out this is not really a resort. It is a small hotel with a single pool and a single restaurant that closes at 9 p.m. on weekends.

With two students at Cal Poly SLO, we are frequent visitors of the area. Our #1 choice of places to stay Is Dolphin Bay. The service is fabulous, the rooms are beautiful, the views are breathtaking, and the restaurant (Lido) and spa are definite musts. Located 15 minutes from the campus and downtown SLO, and 5 minutes from Avila Beach, it is perfectly located. The rooms are all suites (one or two bedrooms), with full kitchens and living rooms (including a sleeper couch). They are even pet-friendly! If you are planning a special trip to the central coast, this is the place to stay!

We've stayed at DB Resort before and always enjoyed it. Great room (we had a suite), great views of the ocean, fine furnishings and amenities (our coffee maker died and was replaced immediately), good beach access, and very comfortable overall. The staff are attentive and very polite. We haven't dined at the onsite restaurant, but will one of these days. I'm sure we'll be back.
