Irvine, CA (February, 24, 2016) – Pacifica Hotels, the largest operator of boutique hotels on the California Coast, announced today the ground breaking of the highly anticipated Inn at the Pier in Pismo Beach. Located just steps from the famous Pismo Beach pier and boardwalk, Inn at the Pier is slated to open in early 2017 at 601 Cyprus Street in downtown Pismo.

The owner and developer, Somera Capital Management, has retained Pacifica Hotels as the management company. The Inn at the Pier joins Pacifica Hotels’ four other managed Pismo Beach hotels: Sandcastle Inn, Spyglass Inn, Cottage Inn, and The Tides

Inn at the Pier will feature 104 well-appointed guest rooms, 1,500 square-feet of meeting and event space, a roof-top bar, swimming pool, fitness center, lobby bar, retail shops, an upscale restaurant with indoor/outdoor dining, and an underground parking garage.

Reminiscent of a luxury beach home, Inn at the Pier has been designed in the community’s charming beachside craftsman style. Within walking distance to the pier, beach, boutiques, surf shops and cafes, as well as close to the Oceano Dunes Nature Preserve and the Monarch Butterfly Cove, Inn at the Pier will provide an ideal spot from which to explore this classic California beach town, or to simply sit back and watch the sun set.

“We are thrilled to have officially broken ground on this new project,” said Todd Moreau, Chief Operating Officer of Pacifica Hotels. “We have been operating hotels in Pismo Beach for 40 years and are excited to be able to offer the community and visitors alike a new way to experience this destination.”

Over the past three years, Pacifica Hotels has seen positive growth through management acquisitions. Pacifica Hotels has proven to be a key player in West Coast hospitality with industry-leading performance and outstanding guest experiences. The development of the Inn at the Pier in Pismo is an excellent addition to its portfolio as well as a strong expression of the company’s future growth.
