“Loved it and my furry companions were welcomed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2012

Traveling with two small dogs can be difficult, but this hotel was not only clean and comfortable... it was very welcoming of pets. When we arrived, there was a special tray with a bowl, towel and treats! And the best part is that we had a room with ocean view. Loved it!

We've enjoyed every stay at this location. We originally found it by accident and glad we did. Since our last visit, the rooms appear to have been updated, breakfast room was great, but the real reason you stay here is the 100% uninteruputed view of the ocean.

Room Tip: The rooms are either ground level or level 1. If you request level 1, expect to pay $20 per night m...

I had a really nice stay there. The room was spacious and comfortable. There was plenty of light where it was needed. I had a great sleep every night because the bed was so comfortable. The hotel setting next to the cliffs overlooking the ocean is absolutely beautiful.

We had a great stay here. The view was great, we had a fireplace in our room and the price was very reasonible - $111.00 for an ocean view room. You can get to the beach by following the path but we stayed up on the bluff and enjoyed the view from there. We even got to watch a local fisherman. Breakfast was fine - we took ours out to the picnic table outside and enjoyed the view. This was a great hotel with a view - a much better choice than staying in San Luis Obisbo.

My husband and I were doing Highway 1 and decided to take it easy, so stopped in Pismo Beach, where we found the Best Western about a hundred feet above the aforementioned Sheltered Cove. A lovely little seaside hotel with multiple buildings, with every room having a balcony with an ocean view.Rooms are comfortable, staff wonderful, breakfast average. And if you're feeling in shape, you can take a hike down to the beach and search for seaglass.

We are frequent visitors to the Pismo/SLO area and have stayed in several locations. This trip was for both business and pleasure. Finishes are a bit dated but rooms are large and clean. The staff is extremely helpful, breakfast was average. Because of the limited number of rooms, location and beach access this is definitely a top choice for us.

Comfortable room with a great view. We loved everything about it! It is a little on the expensive side, especially on the weekend, but worth every penny. Nothing can be more romantic than sitting on the balcony with a nice glass of champagne watching the sun go down.
