Overall experience was brilliant, views to die for, rooms spacious. We were travelling from LA to San Fransico up the PC1 this was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a break from driving. The staff were good and were very helpful.

Typical Best Western Plus in terms of amenities and comforts. Maybe larger space overall with a little nice touch of interiors + balcony. Rather than that, it is Best Western Plus. Don't expect too much. If complaining of breakfast, you are pathetic. Again, it is Best Western Plus with basic necessities. Helpful and friendly front desks were also as expected... More

Reasonable walk in price, the heated pool was very nice. The room was clean however (the room was a bit stinky, like body odour). Full ocean view Amazing, smashing waves loved it. Free,WiFi and free breakfast very good value. The first staff member we had was confused, quoted a pretty high price, we went to find another hotel because of... More

This hotel has (almost) everything going for it - stunning location and views, beautiful rooms with balconies, fab pool and good breakfast - but (and its a big but), it seems to be set within a seagull colony! The smell of guano was constant, there were loads of flies in the room and lobby, and feathers everywhere (on our balcony,... More

While I paid top price for this hotel and the location was excellent and it was pet friendly, the room smelled bad had swarms of flies, my dog wouldn't even lay on the carpet. The ocean view balcony was dirty with bird feathers and bark and looked as if it had never been cleaned. We were very disappointed with this... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here. The first time was our anniversary, this time was just a well needed getaway from the heat of Bakersfield and a re-energizing getaway from work. The Shore Cliff Lodge is a little pricey but the oceanfront rooms all have balconies that make it worth the money. Front desk... More

We loved the hotel's location right on the clifftop over looking the ocean. Yes, the roosting seagulls and brown pelecans were a bit smelly (although the smell wasn't overbearing) but they were great to watch. We also spotted a few whale spouts and what we think was a couple of dolphins whilst sat on our balcony enjoying the view (and... More

Stayed in Pismo for two days for business. I stayed the first night at the Cliffs hotel which was beautiful. The next night I decided to try another hotel. The Best Western was a bit more expensive but I decided it might be nice being closer to town. I was wrong!!! The hotel is old and run down. When I... More

The hotel is in a nice spot on the cliffs, but the smell from the roosting pelicans and other sea birds is a bit much. The hotel rooms are okay, but not up to par with the price paid. The rooms all have wall air units that are noisy and there are no wine or glassware of any type in... More

The Shore Cliff is nicely situated along the cliff-section of Pismo Beach. (No direct beach access; you have to drive to the beach.) The hotel is a fairly standard style beach hotel, with most (perhaps all) rooms having some ocean view. Ours had a wonderful ocean view, also overlooking the pool (nicely heated, with an adjoining hot-tub), including a balcony... More
