We loved our stay! Our balcony room looked out over the beautiful ocean! We also LOVED the new couples swing, we watched the whales swimming by. The office let us borrow a pair of binoculars. Our stay was so relaxing!!! I wish we could had stayed longer!!!

We spent the weekend here after driving up from LA. We asked for an upper level, ocean view room and that is exactly what we received. The room was very clean and well appointed and, because we had an end unit, there was a very large window down the side making this the perfect room for sunset viewing if you... More

My wife & I stayed at this Best Western recently and it was fine. The rooms are spacious and well-equipped; the pool isn't huge but decent-sized; the complimentary breakfast was fair; and access to the parking lot easy. Behind the motel are cliffs rising above the Pacific Ocean. The views are wonderful and the cliffs are impressive in spots. There... More

Room and staff met our expectations. Beautiful, well kept grounds. Unobstructed view of ocean from room balcony. Nice walkway along ocean. Second floor room preferred. Very nice breakfast room--no disposables or plastic wear.

Located on the ocean at Pismo Beach, this Best Western was one of the nicest I've visited. The building is nice, the staff cordial, but it is the view and proximity to the ocean that really sets this BW apart. Our balcony overlooked the ocean; we were so close we could throw a baseball into the waves (had we been... More

If you are going to Pismo Beach I highly suggest you stay at this location. Grounds are beautiful, and well kept, the staff is friendly and room is well maintained. Pool area is nice. You receive a free breakfast, but it is continental… This is a great Hotel, and my family was extremely satisfied.

Great view at this hotel. Nice rooms, beautiful area. Two complaints: 1) We wanted a roll-away and there was a LOT of room in the room for one. The staff said that the fire marshal wouldn't let us have one in the room. However, we stayed at the Shore Cliff (the other BW a 1/4 mile away) and they let... More

My wife and I come and stay here a few times a year and have never been disappointed. Very clean rooms, great service, and great accomidations with great views. The only criticism I would have is the distance from the pier but that's no big deal if ya have a car.

We had a lovely time sitting on the balcony with the ocean view. We saw whale spouts for the first time. We watched a sea gull protecting her two baby seagulls atop the rock near the hotel. We got a closer look when we walked along the trail leading to the ocean. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful.... More

I had to laugh at the "funky seagull poo smells" comment in a previous review. Having stopped at the elephant seal lookout point near Cambria (which you must do, if you are travelling through there) those seagull smells were nothing. There are two Best Western Plus hotels close together on the same stretch of road. Make sure you go to... More
