“Great beach view, quality accommodation”
Reviewed 7 August 2011

The hotel overlooks Pismo Beach and the Pacific Ocean. The view from our second floor king ocean front pierside room was spectacular. The cost of the room was US$187. The room was spacious with quality fittings. Planning and researching our accommodation through Trip advisor, we found that Best Western/Best Western Plus hotels lived up to their descriptions and provided the best quality and value for money right through California, Nevada and Arizona. The hotel is quite a walk, maybe 20 minutes, from the Pismo Beach esplanade where you will find eateries to suit most budgets. There is a quality restaurant next door to the hotel and a number of hotels with good resaurants and excellent meals within a 10 minute stroll. We only stayed one night on a drive down the coast road from San Fransisco to LA but Shore Cliff Lodge hotel would also serve as a nice place to stay and relax for a few days.

We loved the place, the sound of the sea, the birds, the cliff. The rooms are good and have an amazing view of the sea and the sunset. Breakfast is included and good, but it's difficult to get a table to eat it and the waitresses are quite rude. From the hotel it's very easy to get to get to pismo beach, San luis Obispo, Avila Beach. We enjoyed very much staying here and would come back tomorrow if we could. We do reccomend this place

We broke our journey from S.F to L.A. here and were very disappointed. Although the rooms are clean and basic the restaurant facilities were poor. The breakfast was just basic and we had a fair walk from our rooms to the restaurant. Thank goodness it was not raining. A lovely spot to stop but the hotel did not live up to expectation.

My bf and I decided to take a spontaneous drive to the coast from the bay area. Once again, we four ourselves here with an ocean view room. Upon arrival, we dis not have a reservation and it was too early to check in. We were told they would call us as soon as the room became available. 4 hours later, the call had not arrived, sovi made contact. Apparently our room had been available for several hours and they forgot to notify us. Anyhow, the room and it's beautiful view made up for the poor service. The waves crashing, the sun setting, the seagulls landing on our balcony....NEED I SAY MORE? It was gorgeous. We planned on staying only one night and ended up booking a second night we were soooo relaxed. We slept with our sliding glass door and curtains open to feel the breeze. But it should be noted, we were staring out and noticed a young couple having sex in the pool and on the patio chairs both nights around 2 am. We were entertained to say the least. Lol! They were quite noisy...

if you pay for the ocean front rooms be sure to ask for the second level. our first level oceanfront room was blocked by shrubs while you sit in the chairs on the patio. you have to stand up to see over the shrubs. but the biggest complaint was the musty smell of the room...we understand that hotel rooms on the ocean do get that smell, but this was really bad...they need to invest in those room spray scent machines that a lot of hotels use. oh and expect a nice walk into Pismo Beach town...not as close as thought to be. overall...we were there for a wedding and it was a happy occasion.

Room Tip: oceanfront rooms-ask for second level for best view

We stayed here for 3 nites - 2 were for business and one was for pleasure. We had an ocean/coast/pier view on the third floor.

The room was very clean and attractive - attention given to detail (lovely "fan folds" on the top tissue in the tissue box, ice bag, bathroom linens folded attracticely, etc - Ammenities were from Bath & Bodyworks.

We so enjoyed the view from our room - and having our door open all day and night! It was wonderful to not only see the waves, watch the surfers and see the coastline and pier (and fog at times!) - but to hear the waves also. It was wonderful to have chairs on our deck to "just sit" - something we rarely have the priviledge of doing. Also, we asked for extra tea bags at the lobby and they graciously supplied those.

One draw back - was that with our door open, "neighbors" had a midnight meal - either near their open door or on their deck. That was disruptive and not a problem of the hotel, but . . rather the guest - but . . it was enough noise (talking, crumpling of foil and trash, etc) to wake us up. Also, someone was smoking on their deck several times during our stay and that smoke came into our non-smoking room - annoying (and allergy irriatating).

The contential bfst was "OK" - waffles, oranges/apples, cold cereals, toast, llimted pastries, and tea and coffee. We were disappointed that only the bar area was open for eating - not the dining room. There were lots of people and the bar area was very crowded.

If you want a super nice ocean view, this is about as nice as it gets. The room we had needed a little upgrading. The TV was older and blurry but we didn't watch it much so it didn't really matter, but compared to other hotels at similar price points, I think they need to work on a few things like that. The room was reasonable during the week, but the weekend rate was pricey and at the rate we paid, it should be a little nicer. The grounds are really nice. Great pool and hot tub. Laundry facilities were nice to have after a week on the road. The rooms all had fridges and microwaves which is also very helpful when you are traveling for long periods and dragging food along with you. Overall, I really enjoyed our stay and I realize that you are paying for the view, not just the room and the view was incredible!
