“Awesome in Every Respect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

We discovered this place quite by accident and Justin at the front desk really helped us with some nice room options. During our two week stay, front desk manager Valerie and front desk professionals Justin and Katie proved to be solid ambassadors of both the Best Western Shore Cliff Lodge and also Pismo Beach / surrounding area, culture, and vibe as a whole. Bravo to a front desk team that gets it right and continued getting it right during the two weeks we were there. And the views are wonderful, thanks to the scenic oceanfront beautifully landscaped grounds. We'll be regulars from now on.

Room Tip: There are many different room views and different buildings. Check for your preferences.

Beautiful hotel, great location, private decks overlooking the ocean, with a very attentive staff. Highly recommend this hotel. High quality linens and towels, which is always a plus for me. No beach access from this hotel but the most amazing views of the entire Pismo Beach area and ocean views. We saw dolphins and seals from our deck and we could see the entire Pismo Beach State Park Beaches.

We have been staying at the Shore Cliff for 30+ years and it is now better than ever. The location is conveniently located to a number of dining alternatives and attractions and the views of the Pacific are spectacular. The rooms have recently been renovated, the facilities and landscaping are extremely well maintained and the management and staff are attentive a caring. Whether traveling for business or leisure, we highly recommend the Shore Cliff Lodge when visiting California's Central Coast.

We had a very enjoyable stay the motel. They have late check out of 12 pm and check in is at 4 pm. The facilities are very nice and well kept. They call it a continental breakfast but do have pancakes and some sausage, eggs and biscuits sandwich. However in our opinion the biscuit was soggy -- the sausage and egg by themselves were fine. We had a room overlooking the ocean it the weather was nice enough we could leave the sliding door open all night to listen to the waves. Having a balcony to sit on was very relaxing. The biggest drawback, was that the light is very dim even in the bathroom. I see they had fluorescent lights -- but they need to be updated for higher out put.

Room was clean and comfortable and had a nice ocean view. The hotel grounds were very nice and had great views as well. We saw dolphins from our balcony a few times. Dogs are made to feel welcome and received a treat when arriving to their room along with a bed and bowls. The daily breakfast was just ok compared to all the other hotels we stayed at over this long road trip. Go into town and there you'll find a choice of food options. Maid didn't show to clean room our last day there.

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view.

One night stay for a business trip, weather was great, sunset was picturesque, sunrise equally dazzling, great food nearby. Rooms recently updated..I LOVE THIS PLACE. Ask for rooms on the second or third floors with interior corridor for the best ocean views.
