Lots of seaside four star resorts in Pismo. This is a pretty good one for the price. Pros: + comfy beds + great showers and bathrooms + beautiful full wall windows and views + very convenient next door beach access + pet friendly (fee required) + excellent free wifi Cons: - limited parking - Pismo Beach is expensive in general...

Had a really lovely time here this weekend. Our ocean view room was very well appointed and spotlessly clean. Every staff member we interacted with was friendly, warm, and helpful. Our only issue was that the hotel was full of families with dogs and young children, and large parties of adult friends. As such, the pool was very splashy/noisy and... More

Great location, beautiful boardwalk in front, great restaurant and outdoor cafe We stayed only one night, they were very helpful with recommending must-sees in the area. The location is great, beachfront heated pool and steps down to a wonderful private beach. We would return for sure.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we departed, the staff was amazing (Lena rocks!) and our room and accommodations were fabulous! I would definitely recommend ordering In Room Dining service from their restaurant Marisol at The Cliffs. My wife and I enjoyed a delicious filet mignon and salmon entrée on the balcony while taking in a gorgeous sunset... More

Enjoyed staying at the Cliffs recently for four nights during a business trip. The best part is the absolutely stunning view of the ocean and the property, along with a pool/whirlpool and plenty of outdoor seating next to fire pits and heater lamps and blankets to keep you warm at night and poolside drinks you can order. There is access... More

We met up with friends at this lovely hotel while on vacation. We were glad to find that our room was spacious, clean and cheery. We had a partial ocean view room which was very nice as the weather was beautiful and clear. Staff were helpful and friendly.

My husband and I came here for the first time to celebrate our anniversary. Everything was absolutely exceptional. The attention to detail and customer appreciation extended well beyond my expectations and was evident everywhere we looked. There is nothing “plastic” or cheap about this place. From delicious baked cookies unexpectedly found at the check in counter, the wine reception with... More

Had a great time staying at the cliffs. Went over the valentines day weekend, booked the special. Was little disappointing having our room right next to check in, but thats where the "special" rooms were located. Bottle of wine was delivered upon check in which was also very nice. The included meal was absolutely delicious. The entire stay was good,... More
