“High School Reunion Road Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

This hotel is great. Love staying here. The room is comfortable and clean and the views are great. We had a pier view and ocean view room. Priced right. Would have liked to have stayed two nights to have had time exploring the area. Would highly recommend this for anyone that likes to stay by the ocean.

Fast and friendly check-in, room was nice and adequate and clean. Room was quiet and comfy. Breakfast area was basic but staff and selection of food was superb. Hotel gardens were lovely with great views and was just short walk to pier via beach.

Stayed here for 2 nights on a 10 day road trip of the PCH in August. Payed a premium for this hotel to stay Oceanfront. Upon arrival you are greeted with the unpleasant odor and sight of seagulls, pelicans, etc...thousands of them behind the resort. Every-time we wanted to sit on our balcony to enjoy our $$ view we were fighting off flies that swarmed our balcony and ended up in the room. So we only enjoyed the view from inside the room. We returned to our room one afternoon to find an invasion of ants. We had to throw out all our groceries and keep all garbage outside the room. We killed all the ants and requested room service to return to vacuum up any dead ants or ones we may have missed...never came. The breakfast was slim pickings as well. Save your money and stay up the road a bit.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. I am sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your visit. We strive to provide a clean environment and comfortable accommodations that our guests deserve. In order to do this we have brought in additional staff to clean our balconies and wash our sidewalks and pool area frequently. We do our best to clear the property of droppings and nests as they become abandoned, however as you can see, these natural residents stay very active and are difficult to keep up with. Additionally, we hire experts to clean the rooftops as well. We love our feathered friends, but they certainly keep us busy! I do apologize for the challenge you faced with the ants. We are working with our regular pest control service to take care of that issue as well.

We do appreciate your feedback and hope that we will have the opportunity to WOW you during a future visit!

We visited Pismo Beach as a mother-daughter weekend with my girlfriend and our daughters. I selected this hotel based on high ratings on Trip Advisor. We couldn't have been more disappointed. While the interiors are nice and the view is spectacular, the exteriors are not well maintained. This is basically a very tired motel with rusting ironwork and badly in need of a paint job. Bird poop on the walkways and stairs. There as so many beautiful and well maintained hotels in the area for the same price - I would NOT recommend staying here. I did walk up to the Best Western Shore Cove Lodge up the street and it was beautiful. It appeared to be very well maintained and more along the lines of what I would have expected for $350/night. I would recommend that management invest in upgrades to the exterior of the property as the views are spectacular and with renovations this could be a beautiful place to stay. If you are accustomed to business travel, you will not be comfortable here.

I love picnic area right next to the cliff, having breakfast there was so fresh and healthy. We are coming back here again for sure next summer. Its worth it, we booked 8 rooms and have no complaint. Great service at the front desk made us fell like at home. Thank you Best Western PLUS Shore Cliff Lodge, Pismo Beach, CALIFORNIA.

Nice facility, can't beat the view out of every room, very professional staff, easy access to downtown Pismo and the highway. The onsite breakfast bar is average, lots of carbs, little or no protein but the pancake machine is great fun

Loved the view and the birds. There were so many pelicans and they were interesting to watch. We also watched a school of fish for most of one day that had hundreds of birds on the water and circling the water over the school. We watched whales around the school too. At one point we think there were 4 whales playing around the birds and school of fish. The hotel is very close to the Pismo Beach and we spent one day just hanging there. One complaint was that we got there early and check-in is 3pm. They said they'd call if the room was ready early. It wasn't and I'm not sure why it couldn't be.

Room Tip: the breakfast room was really full at 9:30 and there wasn't enough seating. earlier is better.
