Couldn't have had a better 29th anniversary in central coast than we had at Shore Cliffs. The rooms have been upgraded wonderfully, the views are stunning, and the location is perfect for accessing all the central coast has to explore.

The overall experience was fine and a good value. But why would you build an ocean front hotel in a way that many rooms that have the ocean view have a section of the hotel blocking their view of the sunset? From the highway the hotel looked like all rooms would ave a sunset view but inside the room we...

Thank you for giving us your feedback about your stay. Yes we do have 3 different room views available. We offer our ocean views (which consists of looking over the pool area, ocean and can see the sunset), pier side views (which you can look down south into the Pismo Beach area, the pier and watching the waves crash along...

We only stayed here one night as part of our California road trip and wish we'd been able to stay longer. The room was comfortable and had a sink, fridge and microwave. The bathroom also had a double sink ie one each. We were on a timescale, but we'd wished we'd had longer as the swimming pool area looked great...

There is an excellent ocean view from the room we had, and since we were on the second floor we could leave the sliding door open and listen to the surf. Wonderful experience. Some of the other rooms don't have such a great view.

We have stayed at this place many times but this time it wasn't as clean as we would like it to be and the heater positioned right on the bed air blowing to our face thats why we couldn't turn it on so we have to stay under the blanket all the time While we were in the room

While the hotel is being converted from a Best Western property to a local chain, the roadside appearance is less than inviting. Oceanside and inside our room, however, it was a totally different experience: the room was roomy and clean, the decor simple but elegant, and the bed extremely comfortable. We had a restful and relaxing stay.

Excellent location on the cliff overlooking Pismo Beach. Room was well appointed, bed very comfortable, nice view over the pool with ocean vistas. Breakfast was OK, nothing special but good selection. Construction going on with one wing & the lobby was shut down so checking was in a small room by the laundry. Nice restaurant, the Ventana Grill, only a...

I had a good stay at the Best Western in Pismo Beach. The swimming pool which overlooks the Pacific Ocean is very nice. The spa is very nice. Since it gets dark early in November, I opted for a partial ocean view (instead of ocean front which is slightly higher in price.). The room was nice. The bed was comfortable....

This is a Best Western so you know what to expect, and they met the test. The room was clean, and the bed comfortable. WiFi worked well. The staff was helpful. Breakfast was super. The location is good.

Great place! beautiful location right on the beautiful rugged coast of Central California! Close to the wineries of Paso Robles, San Luis Obispo & Santa Barbara! Great restaurants close by in Pismo Beach (Splash Cafe) for their award winning New Englang Clam Chowder & Nipomo (Jocko's) for the best steak I ever had!
