“Beautiful views from every room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

We loved our stay here in Oct. 2012. The weather was perfect, and the hotel was awesome. Our room with a king size bed was a bigger than a normal hotel room. Each room has their own balcony with two chairs. Our room was pet friendly and when we arrived our dog had a Sherpa blanket, a dog dish, and treats awaiting her. The grounds have a lot of grassey area which is nice when you have a dog, and also adds to the beauty of the property. The grounds were well maintained and the views were awesome from everywhere in the hotel. The continental breakfast was very good and they offered a lot of different items. We loved the pancake machine! We never heard the freeway noise from our room and we were on the first floor right accross the street from the freeway. We did hear the wonderful sound of the ocean waves. The only complaint we had and the reason I didn't give it a five star rating is because where we were in the hotel we had a very weak wi-fi signal. We were not able to stay connected to the internet which was very frustrating. The hotel management did compensate us for our lack of wi-fi which was very nice of them, and said they were looking into the problem and working with IT to get the problem corrected. The hotel does not have beach access as it is on a cliff, but you can walk down a few blocks and access the beach via the Sea Crest motel.

Room Tip: From what I could tell all the rooms had beautiful views.

Had a 3 night stay here and to be fair the room was very nice, king size overlooking the sea with a balcony. The noise from the 101 is intrusive, you can hear it in the room and on the balcony. Forget the breakfast, just a bun fight for the toasters, not enough seating by far, we paid for breakfast elsewhere. For the money this hotel should do better.

Wow! top floor room with a breath taking view of the ocean....very, very nice decor...clean and downright pleasant. Wedding taking place out on the point to the left of our room....dophins leaping in the ocean and great seating on the balcony. Great Feng Shui going on here! Yummy chocolate chip cookies (Otis Spunkmeyer) upon arrival. I would come back here in a heart beat. Steamers restaurant is within walking distance. Am going to enjoy the beautiful sunset this evening. Don't hesitate to book a room here...h

Room Tip: Best always to choose a top floor room...

The view from our room was spectacular, make sure you watch the sunset. The room was clean and tidy. The included breakfast was adequate. I would recommend the Best Western Plus Shore Cliff Lodge to families or couples. The Pismo Outlets were an added bonus!

We rounded off our adventure in CA with 3 nights at the Shore Cliff Lodge.

We were in #231 overlooking the ocean and lawns. The room was well laid out, clean and had a comfortable bed. The bathroom was basic but had a respectable shower and again was immaculately clean. The outside balcony was a little weather worn and had quite a bit of bird poop on it together with the large seagull that left it. All in all the room was comfortable.

On the downside the breakfast was something of a scrum down with what is described as a European buffy which wasn't great but was rescued by decent coffee. We used the Cinnamon Rolls shop in town after the first morning. Given that we didn't realise breakfast was included its probably a little crass of us to complain though. The reception staff were a little worn around the edges one with a dirty blouse. During check in there was no eye contact which was a little disconcerting and despite having to walk through reception throughout the stay not once did any of the reception staff look up and acknowledge us.

This is a nice hotel. Sort the breakfast and the staff put and it could be a great hotel

Hi,

Thank you for your comments. I am glad that you enjoyed our newly appointed guest rooms. We are now in the process of painting the exterior along with the patio railings.Unfortunately, we were not able to complete this prior to your stay. Providing superior guest service is our highest priority and greeting our guest within 10 feet is expected by our employees. I am sorry that the guest service agent did not acknowledge you during your stay.
I hope that you give us another opportunity to serve you in the future!

Regards

We chose this hotel for our wedding because of its beautiful scenery overlooking the ocean. There is an excellent restaurant The Ventana Grill located next door in walking distance with the same beautiful scenery perfect for catching a sunset. The property is at the North end of town to Pismo so you are not is the hustle of the tiny town but just close enough to walk into town if needed. The staff was very helpful with all of our needs. We will definitely be back to visit again.
