“Wish we could have stayed longer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We stayed one night during our honeymoon in March 2012, and absolutely loved it! Unfortunately we arrived at dusk, which was very disappointing given the view from our room was incredible! The room was well appointed and comfortable enough. Dinner at the Ventana Grill next door was great, but managed to be outdone by breakfast, again with spectacular views over the cliffs and down to the beach. The only issue we found was that the walls were quite thin - we could hear the children in the room next door, however the hour was reasonable so it wasn't really a problem. Of all the places we stayed in the US, this was amongst the hardest to leave! If and when we return to Pismo Beach, we will definitely stay at the Best Western Plus Shore Cliff Lodge.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with no "neighbours" as the rooms aren't very soundproof

Paid extra for a sea view which I thought would be looking straight out to sea. Unfortunately not - many of the "sea view" rooms look sideways. Very basic BW apart from the location and thus a bit over-priced. Nice dinner next door at the Ventana.

Room Tip: Careful of "sea view".

Thank you for your feedback! I am sorry that you did not like the view from your room. We just finished a full remodel on our "ocean front" building. These by far have the best view in the house. We will have some specials running in the near future on these rooms to promote the upgrades. We would love to hear from you again!

The view from our room was amazing, such a great location! The pool was nice and our rooms were spacious and clean. The beach is nice too and you can get onto it through one of the hotels down the road.
Not much to do in Pismo but San Luis Obispo is about 20 minutes drive away.

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!
