Since it was our 35th wedding anniversary and we were on our driving tour of Pacific Coast all the way to Los Angeles,we decided to booked at this hotel..its a little pricy but the ratings from Trip Advisor was very good.This was an excellent choice for stopover of 1 night of our trip. The hotel was nicely situated,beach front property with pool.They put us in a nice king bed room with oceanview and it was wonderful.The service staff were very friendly and helpful.The breakfast was o.k. and had varities.Definitely we will recommend this hotel to our friends who will do the pacific coast driving in the future.

It's a no smoking complex so I don't know why there was an option to pay a little more for the non-smoking room. Seems like every room had a view, only real option is lower or upper room. Room was clean, price was lowest for the area.

Awesome hotel! Rooms are spacious. Great location. Only wish they would put queen beds instead of double. Over priced in summer months. Our favorite hotel in Shell Beach/Pismo Beach! Most of the rooms are ocean view. Great poo/jacuzzi and superb landscape. Don't feed the friendly seagulls! They will not leave your balcony.

No complaints, but hard to see the fireworks it was overcast, I had to drive down the pier but you could still not see the display, but it was nice just to walk out of your room to your own patio or walk down to the private beach next to the best western and see the kayaks coming from shell beach

Amazing hotel. Leave time to wander around the cove. Very accessible to get down the cliff.to the beach. Great feeling of beauty and isolation. Hotel very clean and well run. Has a certain homey feel to the layout.

the Shelter Cove Lodge at Shell Beach is a nice, quiet hotel. the staff were all pleasant and the room was clean and well decorated. There are trails and steps down to the beach with beches along the way to stop and rest. There are plenty of areas to explore around the hotel, our favorite being Shell Beach to the north. There is another Best Western to the south and while it is nice, this one seems to be better decorated. I am not sure if the view is better or worse in other rooms, but ours was spectacular. We will come back again.

Room Tip: We had an upper unit, not sure the the good or bad is aout other rooms.

Rooms were very clean, well equipped, comfortable and quiet. Staff were polite and helpful. Ocean views from each room are amazing. The hotel is not in the town of Pismo Beach but a few miles north in Shelter Cove. Short walk to the excellent Ventura restaurant.
