“Great hotel and doesnt feel like a 3 star hotel!”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

My husband and I stayed overnight at this hotel. I had never stayed in a 3 star hotel before and was a bit apprehensive about it. But there was nothing to worry about, the hotel room was spacious, clean, had a great view and just perfect for a short stay.

We arrived at this hotel late and even then they upgraded us to a beach view room. What a view in the morning. The other guests were extremely friendly and gave us tips on our onward journey.

The bed was comfortable, the shower was ok, the bathroom was of a good size and even though there was no kettle facilities in the room, they was a coffee machine and a microwave which did the job of warming water.

The buffet was adequate and sufficient for us. Hot and cold foods. Fruit, breads, muffins and cakes and sausage/ egg snacks.

Plenty of parking and even great for doing laundry. They have a DIY laundry room with a washer and dryer. Washing powder is avaiable from the reception desk (at a $1 per pack- though the pack is only half filled so best to bring your own).

NB if your travelling from the Big Sur, this is a great stop over before embarking on LA. Also, do not attempt the Big Sur at night- we did and we were pertified to say the least. The cliffs dont look great at night (beautiful in the daytime and a must) and the national parks are definitely scary at night.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a beach front

The view at this hotel is fabulous. There is a beach path located right next door that you can walk to town along the beautiful beach! Great shops and eats in town! The staff, especially Valerie, is great and will help with all of your questions regarding places to go and see. Great stop along the central coast of Cali!

The views from the hotel rooms (get a pier view or ocean front room with a balcony) are beautiful, and the grounds are well kept and inviting. The bathrooms have been updated, and the rooms are large and comfortable. The breakfast room is pleasant if somewhat small for the size of the hotel. Breakfast items are limited. Considering the proximity to the ocean, the hotel is a bargain.

I love this hotel. The views are spectacular. The service is excellent. The room was very clean and well done in decor. I recommend it to anyone. It was the wrong time of year to see the pelicans but I'll be back again for sure later this year. Great place to stay. Lots of great things to do in the area.

Put us next to Buffet, we were woken up at 6:30 each morning with the staff preparing the area. By 8:00 am people were filling the room and with the tile floor, it was incredibly loud. Not exactly what you want on vacation! Told the lady at the front desk and she basically said too bad. Would never stay there again.

Dear Lesa,
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience with us. Please know that your comments regarding your visit are important to us. I am dissapointed to learn that your stay was not as relaxing as you had hoped for, as we do have many room options that may be located further away from our breakfast room. I am sorry that you did not receive the level of customer service you were looking for when you addressed the issue with our front desk. I will be working with our staff to better accomodate our guests in the event that a situation like this occurs in the future. We do hope that we will have the opportuntity to WOW you during a future visit with us.

Thank you again,
Barbara

The Shore Cliff Lodge in Pismo Beach is in a great location. Right on the cliffs overlooking the ocean, with great views of Pismo Pier and the beach. Large clean rooms with large flat screen tv, in-room internet that works!, and continental breakfast is nicely presented.

This best western plus is outstanding. I consistently use this chain because of value and cleanliness. But this hotel is over the top great. The staff are all wonderful....friendly and helpful. Sandy M was in the breakfast room and made me feel like everything was set up just for me. She was so warm and welcoming. I felt very special just because of her. She is a huge asset to this hotel and is perfect for her job. The bed linens, which I am particular about, are top quality and so comfortable as are the beds themselves. And the location and view....OMG. If you want a beautiful experience stay here!!!!
