We are a working family who enjoy the ocean. We return to Shelter Cove over and over again. Every room has an ocean view. The rooms feel like your staying in a spa without the price tag. We have celebrated birthdays, family get togethers or just relaxation--much of our time is spent out on the balcony, enjoying the view and... More

This hotel was perfect for us. We are a family of 4 with 2 & 4 year old boys who have lots of energy! The room was big, the pool right at our door and the private beach is an added bonus. You have to drive into town but that is balanced out with a play ground near by. Def... More

It's a no smoking complex so I don't know why there was an option to pay a little more for the non-smoking room. Seems like every room had a view, only real option is lower or upper room. Room was clean, price was lowest for the area.

Awesome hotel! Rooms are spacious. Great location. Only wish they would put queen beds instead of double. Over priced in summer months. Our favorite hotel in Shell Beach/Pismo Beach! Most of the rooms are ocean view. Great poo/jacuzzi and superb landscape. Don't feed the friendly seagulls! They will not leave your balcony.

No complaints, but hard to see the fireworks it was overcast, I had to drive down the pier but you could still not see the display, but it was nice just to walk out of your room to your own patio or walk down to the private beach next to the best western and see the kayaks coming from shell...

Amazing hotel. Leave time to wander around the cove. Very accessible to get down the cliff.to the beach. Great feeling of beauty and isolation. Hotel very clean and well run. Has a certain homey feel to the layout.

Rooms were very clean, well equipped, comfortable and quiet. Staff were polite and helpful. Ocean views from each room are amazing. The hotel is not in the town of Pismo Beach but a few miles north in Shelter Cove. Short walk to the excellent Ventura restaurant.

We were amazed by the ocean view at this property. It far exceeded our expectations. It was a full view of the ocean with towering cliffs and rocks. The grounds were landscaped to enjoy the view with walking paths and places to sit and soak it all in. All the rooms have an ocean view. The room was very comfortable.... More
