“Nice Hotel in Pismo Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

This was a reasonably priced hotel close to Pismo Beach. On a cliff above the water with great views and sunsets! Nice, big room and very clean and quite. Not right in Pismo Beach - but not a bad location.

Room Tip: Ask for a 2nd floor room...I believe the ground floor rooms don't have much of a view

Dont be fooled by the "Plus" in the Best Western name, doesn't mean anything. If you are used to upscale hotels, you will be very disappointed here. Staff is fine, the hotel is just old, out of date, and noisy if you are anywhere near the breakfast and/or weight room area.

It looks great on the brochure, but don't get your heart set on any of the amenities offered -- from the wifi to the complimentary b'fast to the in-room hair dryers, we found the "extras" disappointing. That said, the view was great, the room was clean and comfortable and the staff helpful.

Big rooms with a small kitchen, breakfast was included and parking in front of the door, beautiful view on the Cliff when you enter the reception. A bit of a smell because of so many birds living on the cliff but we got used to it. We were happy with the laundry room in the hotel, as we were traveling up north not having a lot of time. Next door was a very nice restaurant walking distance.

I recently stayed for several nights, my nephew was getting married. This place was a few miles away but really worth the short trip. The rooms over look the sea, you can hear the waves. The staff is very helpful and courteous. I defiantly would recommend this place to anyone.

The staff was friendly and the room was impeccable. Our stay was amazing. Would stay here again. Ocean front view room with private balcony on the 2nd floor was perfect for us. It was our 20th Anniversary and the staff even left us a card signed by all the employee's on duty that day. Our room was clean and ready by check in and we had an excellent view of the ocean.

The Shorecliff in Pismo Beach can not be beat It is the nicest place to stay. It is so relaxing and the grounds are beautiful. You wont find a better view of the ocean. All night you hear the ocean crashing against the rocks. The staff is #1. So kind and friendly. They really go out of there way to make your stay the very best. This place can not be beat for comfort, relaxation, beauty.
