“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012

I was really happy with this place. The hotel was great value. The hotel also has pet friendly rooms (bookings required). We stayed two nights, a full continental breakfast is included, which was great, and the room was very comfortable. Great ocean views, lovely pool. Ask for an ocean view room. The hotel is not in town, so you really have to drive to town, unless you are feeling energetic. The hotel also has a guest laundry, which is very helpful when you have been traveling for 2 weeks! Food in Pismo Beach is great and inexpensive, I highly recommend Splash Cafe and Guiseppes. I also highly recommend having a massage at the spa associated with the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a ocean view room upstairs. If you get a ground floor room, you may need earplugs if you are...

Stayed here overnight. Great ocean views. Not in town which I thought was a plus. Nice room. Fair price.

Buildings are reasonably updated but of course the beauty of Pismo is that it's like California beach cities in the 60's.

Room Tip: The north facing rooms are about $20 less expensive and have great ocean views. Pay extra to look s...

This hotel has great ocean views We stay here every time we drive to San Pedro, Ca .where we go out on Mexico, or Hawaii cruises.. than return to the same hotel on our way back home to Northern Ca. Ask for a room upstairsm facing the pier...beautiful sunsets, a fantastic pool with ocean views, nice walking trails. Breakfast is served right next door at a restaurant...selection was ok. There are some good restaurants near-by: McClintocks is very popular for beef eaters.

Had a great stay, beautiful rooms overlooking the Pacific Ocean, clean and good value. We stayed in a suite with two bedrooms with unspoilt views from the two balconies, it was amazing.
It also included breakfast with a great variety to choose from for a continental breakfast.

Room Tip: I think our suite was room 312, definately worth it.

Thank you for your comments. Our suites, as you know are located at the west side of our property (ocean front). These rooms have the most stunning views, so I am glad you were able to experience it here with us.

We always stay at BW Shore Cliffs Lodge when traveling up the Central Coast. The rooms have spectacular ocean views and they are clean. The restaurant next door, Ventana Grill, is wonderful. Don't miss it!
