We stayed at the Best Western Plus Shore Cliff Lodge for one night on our way from San Fransisco to Los Angeles. The hotel was very welcoming and the view was stunning. You don't want to miss the sunset. Its amazing. We had a room on the second floor facing the ocean and it was definitely worth the extra money. We truly enjoyed the the view. The pool has a great size and the water was nicely heated. The whole family had a fantastic time and next time we will stay more than just one night.

This is a must if you are looking for a place to stay in the area of Pismo Beach, CA. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the view from our patio (Room 111) was very nice. The staff was very accommodating. There are a number of good restaurants in the area and it is a quick on and off to Hwy 101 N. We will definitely stay here again!!!!

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
