Overall, hotel is good - right on ocean near Pismo Beach CA. Beautiful location. Rooms are spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed. Grounds are walkable and lovely. Breakfast is very basic. The pre-made, reheated eggs and bacon were very low class. Couldn't understand why such a nice hotel had poor breakfast. Plus, guests and their dogs used this room as short cut... More

There are not many choices of quality hotels in Pismo Beach. Therefore, you will pay high rates for what I consider to be mediocre quality. The Shore Cliff Lodge is a 1970's era basic motel fronting the ocean up on a cliff (so no access) with great views. Our room was clean and had a nice view of the ocean.... More

Perfect location facing the ocean, left the window open at night to listen to the waves crashing into the cove. Morning breakfast was great, plenty of everything you want to eat. Took a tray back to the room and sat on the patio looking at the ocean. Awesome, will be coming back

I traveled solo in January, a surprisingly good month for traveling in mid-coast California if you don't mind rain now and then. Everything was good to excellent. The location, about a hundred meters from the Pacific cannot be surpassed, with the California coastal hiking trail running just in front of the property. My room, #125, had a balcony overlooking the... More

We so enjoyed our stay at the BW in Pismo Beach. We were unaware that the pool and area by it was under construction and were a bit disappointed, but, we made the best of it and so enjoyed our stay. One recommendation would be to add a fire place and sitting area in the lobby for when the weather... More

Beautiful location overlooking the ocean, but rooms could be refreshed. Old lamps, no place to plug in electronics, old desk area that is too big for the room. Definitely could use a facelift. Staff was friendly and hotel offers free breakfast.

My husband and I visited BWP Shore Cliff Lodge in October for an intended get-away from road construction noise near our home. We arrived a little bit early and were grateful that our room was ready. My husband had just laid down to take a quick nap when we heard the all-too-familiar "beep, beep, beep" of a truck backing up.... More

For a beach front, well cliff side hotel it's very nice and well laid out. There isn't any beach access because it sits on a shoreline composed of sheer cliffs. Excellent unobstructed ocean sunset views, a nice restaurant/lounge next door with the same views. The rooms are very nice but I had a ground floor room that had a connecting... More

Overall: We chose this hotel for the view, location and the overall vibe that we had while doing our research. Had some really high hopes, maybe too much. Most of what I anticipated came to fruition except maybe the views from our room was a big disappointment. In hindsight I would not have paid any extra for such as room.... More
