5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

We are a working family who enjoy the ocean. We return to Shelter Cove over and over again. Every room has an ocean view. The rooms feel like your staying in a spa without the price tag. We have celebrated birthdays, family get togethers or just relaxation--much of our time is spent out on the balcony, enjoying the view and the ocean air. The staff is always so accommodating. Great food and fun recommendations. They even took care of a birthday cake for us. We've booked online and directly with them--service was exactly the same. They will tell you which way to book to get a better deal. Breakfast is free and it's what you get at most hotels, There's always something there that will give you enough fuel to last til lunch. Very quiet and nice pool /hot tub area. We just spent the 4th of July weekend there and we're ready to go back.

Room Tip: The second story is ground level(especially nice for those with mobility issues)

This hotel was perfect for us. We are a family of 4 with 2 & 4 year old boys who have lots of energy! The room was big, the pool right at our door and the private beach is an added bonus. You have to drive into town but that is balanced out with a play ground near by. Def would stay again.

Stayed July 2014

Since it was our 35th wedding anniversary and we were on our driving tour of Pacific Coast all the way to Los Angeles,we decided to booked at this hotel..its a little pricy but the ratings from Trip Advisor was very good.This was an excellent choice for stopover of 1 night of our trip. The hotel was nicely situated,beach front property with pool.They put us in a nice king bed room with oceanview and it was wonderful.The service staff were very friendly and helpful.The breakfast was o.k. and had varities.Definitely we will recommend this hotel to our friends who will do the pacific coast driving in the future.

It's a no smoking complex so I don't know why there was an option to pay a little more for the non-smoking room. Seems like every room had a view, only real option is lower or upper room. Room was clean, price was lowest for the area.

Awesome hotel! Rooms are spacious. Great location. Only wish they would put queen beds instead of double. Over priced in summer months. Our favorite hotel in Shell Beach/Pismo Beach! Most of the rooms are ocean view. Great poo/jacuzzi and superb landscape. Don't feed the friendly seagulls! They will not leave your balcony.

No complaints, but hard to see the fireworks it was overcast, I had to drive down the pier but you could still not see the display, but it was nice just to walk out of your room to your own patio or walk down to the private beach next to the best western and see the kayaks coming from shell beach

Amazing hotel. Leave time to wander around the cove. Very accessible to get down the cliff.to the beach. Great feeling of beauty and isolation. Hotel very clean and well run. Has a certain homey feel to the layout.
