“Perfect location”
Reviewed 8 October 2009

Located on a cliff overlooking the ocean, almost every room in the hotel has a sweeping ocean view. Room is nice and clean, of reasonale size and a big balcony. Short drive to the town and beaches. Noticed many weddings took place at the property, I certainly understand why, seems to be a perfect setting for such specialy celebration.

Used the hotel as a base to tour the area. Older style, but refurbished and is clean comfortable and well appointed. Equipped with fridge, modern bathroom, comfortable beds, free wi fi, coffee making facilities, microwave and plenty of room. Great views over the bay from on top of cliffs, the balcony was a great place to watch a spectacular sunset.
Breakfast was included and was basic but satisfactory. Well worth the price and very convenient if touring on the PCH between San Francisco and LA.

This is my 4th visit to The Shore Cliff. That should say it all.
The rooms are clean and very comfortable. The ONLY negitive is the very slow, very SMALL elevator. But, you are there for a vacation.
The veiw is beautiful. Yeah, I'll be going back again.

Good accomodation with fridge and microwave oven, king size bed, large bathroom and a balcony BUT -------- we wanted a 3 night relaxing break after travelling from Vegas and LA so we booked this when we were enroute and thought it sounded quite nice and reasonably priced at around $140 per night. The quiet we were looking for wasn't really there due to the large number of seagulls which seem to love the hotel roof, pool, gardens, your balcony etc. The smell was aweful and with all the droppings I felt it could be a health and safety issue especially around the pool. It's definately ok for a one night stopover, but that's all. Pismo beach itself is a 3 min drive or 15 min walk and nothing special (seaside cafe's etc) although it is a beautiful long beach with surfers etc. We did have the best ribs ever at Mo's in Pismo - it was a really nice surprise !

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.
