I stand corrected.  I actually stayed at the Rose Garden Inn in Pismo Beach/ Arroyo Grande.  Sorry, it's been a while.

I did a little checking around, looks like the hotels start around $1400/month and the rentals start at $1500 for a 1 bedroom and go up from there.  Good thing the per diem is federal rate!

WOW!  It's went up.  I paid $600 a month for a hotel when I was there.  Good luck.

Any hints on places to stay for long term say > 1 year.  Entertaining the idea of heading out there.
Thanks for the help,

I would come out and get a hotel for a week or so and look around... some apartments come up that aren't routinely listed... and aren't apartment buildings. 

Things to keep in mind:
We get lots of tourists in the summer.  Avila and Pismo get overrun with them.  Tourists are fine, it's just the extra traffic that gets generated; makes it hard to just get around.

In June it will be easier to find a place to stay in SLO, the college students are leaving.  You could find a really nice apartment within walking distance of downtown, which is the arrangement I recommend.  SLO is a really nice town with alot to do. 

Arroyo Grande and Grover Beach are also good places to stay, cheaper than SLO.  You can get way cheaper in Santa Maria, Atascadero and Paso Robles but you're trading commute time for lower rent. 

What sort of things do you like to do?  When would you be coming out?

One more bit of info please.  I know this sounds a bit dumb but...If one were to map quest Diablo Canyon, what address would one use?
I know how to get to San Luis O. but am unsure of how to get to the plant.

If you google map it, look for Avila Beach, then follow Avila Beach Dr. As you approach Port St. Luis, you'll see a road that runs up the coast and appears to end at nothing. That's the plant access road - one of the prettiest drives you'll ever take!

Hey Fermione,
  Is that ocean fishing?  Or really any fishing?  My boss has a ginormous boat and loves to fish... you two should go out sometime.  I also heard that Lopez Lake is a good place for trout.  

Hi Batman,
  to google Diablo, try googling Avila Beach or Diablo Canyon California and zoom in.  To get there, from the 101, take the Avila Beach exit and head west.  You'll pass Avila on your left, you'll cross a bridge and will be along the beach... start looking to the right for the main gate.  Not sure if anyone told you, but the access road is about seven miles long.  It's a pretty drive, though.  The speed limit is posted, some areas it's 40, some it's 50.  I heard they were going to be enforcing this (you get caught speeding too much, you could lose your parking pass... which means you have to get a ride from the gate :o).  You might want to give yourself some extra time the first week or so- we've got alot of extra peops coming in and they are all on days right now... coming in at the same time.... some days there are long lines at the gate.  

Hope this helps!

There are some good outages over the next few years at SONGS and Diablo.  Now would be the time to look into it.  S/G replacements at both plants.  SONGS would be a 5 - 6 month deal I would be willing to bet, not as much $$ but if you do the travel trailor thing it would still be a money maker when compared to 5 weeks here and 5 weeks there.  Not a bad area to spend time either.

About 7 miles of winding 2 lane road, but oh so beautiful.
