Shore Cliff Hotel
Ranked #3 of 29 Hotels in Pismo Beach
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 May 2014

This property is in a great location, right on the shore cliff as the property name suggests. The room is basic but nice and provides everything you need and when you consider the price this hotel ranks among the best in Pismo. The pool/spa area was very nice and the staff was friendly and helpful, evening offering us fresh baked cookies when we checked in. The price included a continental breakfast so all in all this perfectly located hotel with breakfast included for 2 was under $100/night.

We usually like to make a pit stop in Pismo when he head down south to my in laws. This is the first time that we have stayed here. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The view from our balcony was spectacular!!! The Pacific Ocean in all it's glory. This is a great hotel if you need a place to stay for a night or two. There is a warm pool and hot tub for guests to use and it's located not too far from some fabulous restaurants and a cute little coffee house. Would stay here again......

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean.....

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at the shore cliff. We brought our 5 month old, and it was the perfect getaway for a baby. Pismo is very low key and baby friendly. They have cribs at the hotel and they'll bring you one upon request along with special kids bedding. The breakfast was nice, and the coffee was surprisingly tasty.

One thing of note, if you book at best western.com, they misrepresent their ocean view rooms. Unless you very carefully read the fine print, you'll see that there's a partial ocean view (which is more like you have to twist your head to see the ocean view), and the full ocean view. Make sure you get a full ocean view, it is so incredibly worth it. The ladies at the front desk were aware of this hiccup on the best western site, so they let me upgrade at a very discounted rate. This isn't their fault, but it's something their corporate office should really fix.

Have stayed before and it has been "ok" with low standards. Something has changed since last visit Oct 2013. Noticeable changes in staff at front desk and in breakfast area. Beds extraordinarily comfortable and while just off highway - very quiet except for the unattended children in the room below. Issues raised multiple times not fixed and that is frustrating and changes the experience.

We stayed at this hotel for one night . It was a perfect place to break up the journey. The views from all the rooms are beautiful of the pacific ocean. The rooms were lovely and clean and the receptionist Katie was so helpful and clearly really enjoys her job.

This is our second stay here at the Shore Cliff Lodge in Pismo.

Our room had recently been refurbished and was of an excellent standard. Overlooking the beach and out towards the pier it was spectacular to say the least. Comfortable, clean cannot fault the room.

Problem is that the hotel seems to be currently being refurbished AROUND the room!! Starting at 8 in the morning workmen wandering around banging, singling and generally doing noisy things sharp petered the peace of this previously wonderful place. We'd hoped on 2 days catching up on jet lag with afternoon naps.......no chance! We'd have perhaps expected an email in advance warning of these issue.

Security is an issue for us too here. No external doors are locked and anyone can walk in.

My last review of this hotel said this could be a really great hotel. It still could if more thought went into what makes a great stay for customers.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms near the gym

Views from poolside rooms are beautiful. ambient noise level from freeway and pool activity precludes leaving sliding door open at night however. seagulls are aggressive and have apparently been fed by past idiot guests. I found bed too hard and uncomfortable. Rooms with pier view are different story, almost like a different hotel - great view, quiet and no seagulls.
