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

If you haven't experienced sleeping to the sound of waves crashing against the shore you are missing one of life's sinful indulgences. When you are on vacation or traveling for work the benefits of having a quality comfortable room are so much more important that the expense. I am not saying this hotel is expensive ether. I paid less for... More

Nice employees, great views of california coast line "Pismo beach", hotel located on cliff area short walk to beach, little farther walk to down town Pismo. Nice swimming pool and hot tub. We prefer partial ocean view on third floor.

This was a very nice place to stay. The decor is a little dated but the room was excellent. I assuming since there hasn't been a good rain lately is the reason the bird dropping provide an odorous outdoor experience. The continental breakfast was good. Location was great- private.

We stayed here for 1 night on our ride up the coast. I booked it for the balcony views and was not disappointed. The hotel is right on the beach and only a 20 minute walk from Pismo. There is a lovely restaurant next door as well. Our room was a good size and very clean. We loved the views... More

Lovely King Room with a beautiful view. Location was easy to get to from Hwy 1. Walking distance to several very nice restaurants. The gardens were lovely, even in August. If you love wild life, the pelicans, and sea birds were great as well as watching the dolphins, seals and whale spouts out in the ocean from our balcony.

Thank you for the great review of your recent visit! I am glad to hear that you got to enjoy the amazing views, and the natural wildlife that abounds on the coast. Quite often whales and dolphins can be seen right off of the coastline, it sounds like you were able to catch a glimpse! We also host a variety... More

This hotel is great. Love staying here. The room is comfortable and clean and the views are great. We had a pier view and ocean view room. Priced right. Would have liked to have stayed two nights to have had time exploring the area. Would highly recommend this for anyone that likes to stay by the ocean.
