“Gorgeous!”
Reviewed 11 August 2009

We happened upon this place whilst driving up the West Coast. We didn't have anywhere to stay and this was the first place we checked out-lucky!!
We got a great deal (and a warm welcome unlike other places we checked out the next day), as it was 7pm and they still had empty rooms and got a king room with a sea view. The rooms are spacious and clean, with a tiny kitchen area. The bathrooms are huge with lovely bath and body works toiletries. We had a balcomny overlooking the beach and Pacific-stunning.
We ate at the hotel restaurant while we were there-prices were reasonable, food DELICIOUS and the view stunning!
Sadly, we only got one night here but I'd highly recomment it to anyone wanting a stay in the area.

I stayed here for only one night but wanted to stay longer. I had a 2 qn ocean view room that was absolutely beautiful. I had a clear view of the garden and the pier/ocean directly from our bed. Room was clean, restroom roomy, plenty of towels, amenities, very comfy beds, and courteous staff. There was a wedding taking place as well and I know they had gorgeous photos at this hotel. I definitely would recommend for a romantic getaway. Yes a bit pricey but very well worth it.

Great room rate for such a busy weekend, the rooms that are ocean front have an beautiful bluff and coast view. AMAZING SUNSETS.On Saturdays there are a lot of weddings, at least 4 a day so if you get a room with an ocean view and don't want to look at weddings all day ask for a room that does not face the wedding area. Since this hotel is along the cliffs there are a ton of Pelicans and Seagulls which will annoy you at the pool. You can't really relax at the pool because of the fear of getting pooped on(that was the only disappointing part of the hotel) The seagulls get a little crazy sometimes and you can hear them almost all day, they die down at night, but if your a light sleeper you probably won't be able to sleep with the window open. All in all, If your looking for a upgraded hotel, with nice rooms, all the amenities, and a ocean view give this hotel a shot! The hotel also has a restaurant within walking distance-dinner starts at 5pm, if you get there early you will get a full ocean view (the hotel includes a free appetizer or dessert with your purchase of dinner coupon in with your key) Dinner was romantic and recommend if your looking for more upscale dinning.

We were very happy with our stay at Best Western Shore Cliff. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. We decided to stay another day in Pismo Beach butn changed to this hotel. We arrived early because we wanted to go to the beach. I asked the front desk if we could change into our bathing suits using their faciltiies. Instead she checked if our room was ready and allowed us to check in early. I was so grateful to unload our belongings and allow my children to relax before going to the beach. I was really impressed with the staff. Breakfast was also decent and located at the restaurant close the hotel (short walk across the parking lot). We will definitely stay here when we go to Pismo Beach next summer!

We stayed here for one night on 3-day drive from San Francisco to LA. We arrived around 6pm, and the town part of Pismo Beach did not look appealing, so we drove back up to the row of hotels on the cliffs. The only room left was wheelchair accessible, and I'm not sure if that is the reason, but the room was absolutely huge. Although we were on ground floor, we still had views of the ocean. The grounds of the hotel are amazing, right on the cliff edge, with lots of cormorants, pelicans and other birds nesting on the cliffs below. The restaurant is in a separate building, again on the cliff edge, with amazing panoramic views of the sea, but the food was not not good at all. Overall though, this hotel was perfect for our one-night stopover.

We stayed in a two bedroof suite with the ocean view. The view was fantastic. The rooms were well apointed, clean. The kitchen included all necessary basics, including wine glasses! Three TV's were a bit much, but satisfied all in our family. The suite has a balcony with chaars at each bedroom and the main room. Everything worked in the room. It did not have "that stale hotel smell". The hotel grounds are well maintained despite the numerous sea gulls.

The included breakfast could be improved with inclusion of a make your own waffle machine - an addition becoming more prevelant in hotels offering a basic breakfast "for free"

Stay here for the great views, clean comfortable courteous hotel.

Only negative is the walk to the beach - the hotel is on top of the cliffs.
