“A Lovely Way to Beat the Heat”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

We live only an hour from this hotel and booked our room at the last minute to get away from the 101 temp. in our town. We were surprised at how big and comfortable our room was and the pool was perfect. We had a view of the ocean from our room and from the pool. We'd definitely stay there again.

Enjoyed our stay, the rooms have been recently renovated,and were very nice and clean. The views were spectacular, but no beach access from this Lodge, you need to walk or drive in order o reach the beach. Staff was courteous and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

Good Experience. Nice views and location. Breakfast mostly bad carbs and sugar. Hard boiled eggs was the only protein. Clean room. Nice balcony overlooking grassy area, beach and Pismo. That is about all I have to say, but the review has to have a minimum of 200 characters, so I guess, I will keep typing away here until it tells me that I have typed at least 200 characters for this review. Found conveniently close to Pismo Beach, the Best Western Plus Shore Cliff Lodge is located on Price Street. The hotel is also found close to the Pismo Beach Prime Outlets and the Pismo Beach Pier. The three-storey hotel is a three-star smoke-free property with a hundred rooms. Free breakfast is served to guests everyday. For recreation, guests can spend time at the hotel’s swimming pool, onsite gym, and spa tub. Tour assistance may be provided and guests can partake in a number of activities including boating and bicycle rentals. The rooms feature a balcony and are equipped with complimentary toiletries. A coffee maker is in the room and so is a microwave and a refrigerator. Internet access is also available.

I spent my 60th birthday at the Shore Cliff with several friends. We needed about 9 rooms, each reserved and paid for individually and the hotel took care of it so the process was easy for all. Our rooms were great, with wonderful views. We celebrated my birthday with champagne and presents in the lobby before walking to the Vantana for dinner. Great fun for all!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with the best view.

We recently spent one night here and are already making plans to return. Front desk was helpful and friendly, when I requested a different room because ours was on the ground floor it was no problem, they cheerfully moved us to the third floor. The room was clean with double sinks in the bathroom. The room was well insulated and we never heard any noise from the hall or other guests. All of the rooms have balconies with a view of the ocean; we left our door open and listened to the sound of the waves all night. They have a check out time of noon instead of the usual 11:00. They even have pet friendly rooms if you want to bring your four legged friend.

The hotel sits on the cliffs overlooking the Ocean and the Pier, it very clean and has some beautiful views. Coffee on the on the private patio in the morning or evening is very relaxing. I'd highly recommend staying here if want as great place to just relax. It very easy to enter and exit the freeway and the little town of Pismo Beasch is very close by - dinning out is no problem, many fine restaurants are very close and easy to get to!

Panted ourselves at this hotel for 3 days in March during spring break. With two teenage boys in toe and mom flying soloed our first tea road trip, I was a bit nervous. The hotel was clean, safe and the staff friendly. Allowed me to give the boys some freedom to go to the pool by themselves while I dealt with the business issue I came to California to deal with. The view from the room ( we had an oceanfront room) was amazing. We loved our stay and if I find myself back in Pismo Beach I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Btw, don't mix this hotel up with the other Best Western down the road as I think that one looked a lot more dated and dirty...but the price reflects that and I happily paid the higher price here to stay in a great hotel.

Room Tip: The oceanfront rooms are worth every penny.
