Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 June 2012

Hotel very comfortable, clean, pleasant, well equiped. Views from rooms terrific - small beach below cliffs (need to be nimble to get down). Felt very comfortable there as a single woman.

Room Tip: Room on a "look northwest" angle - better for sunset

Not only was the room large and beautiful and the hotel a great location, the service was great. Thanks Amber for making our stay at Best Western Shelter Cove a wonderful experience. We have recommended the hotel to several of our friends and co-workers.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. They all have ocean views!!!

My husband & I have dubbed this "our spot." Super romantic on the ocean front! SLASH of the waves on the rocks! What better way to wake up...or go to sleep than to the sounds of the sea? :)

Thank you for taking a moment to share with us. I love that this has become “your spot” and I hope you and your husband will have another opportunity to come enjoy it again very soon. If you didn’t get a chance to make your way down to the private beach during your recent visit you will have to check it out next time, it is a lovely place to watch the waves and enjoy the sounds of the ocean as well. We look forward to seeing you and your husband the next time you are in the Pismo Beach area.

What a wonderful place to stay! Right in between Avila Beach and Pismo beach. Balconies overlooking the ocean. Spacious rooms equipped to accomodate snacks and drinks. Gorgeous pathways to walk across the cliffs with stunning views. Immaculate rooms with more pillows than you can think of! Excellent guest service. Excellent place to go to relax and enjoy the views. The continental breakfast was a bit blah, but adequate. Got you going for your day. I absolutely recommend this place to anyone who wants a great getaway place, a place centralized to beach play, good eating establisments, fun shopping and browsing. Great pier close by. Wonderful place to stay!! Can't wait until we can go again!

Room Tip: All the rooms overlook the ocean, so they're all great. I would prefer one away from the pool u...

Great views of pacific ocean from balcony, 10 minute drive to beach. We stayed in room with 2 doubles, fairly large. Included continental breakfast was average in a small crowded room.

When we checked in badly needed coffee, but there was no sugar/creamer pack in room. When we called lobby said it would arrive immediately. However 15 minutes later still yet to show up. We finally had to walk to lobby to pick it up.

We only stayed one night in this hotel and we had great experience here.

The hotel is located on the cliff. You must not miss the room on seconf floor which offers a great ocean and cliff view.

The room is very big with a private belcony and a sun roof. The pool also looks nice.

Five minutes drive to the south, you will find a big shopping and dinning area. The japanese restaurant on the hill is great.

Room Tip: Order a second floor room with ocean view.
