“It's the view, stupid”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

My wife and I have stayed here many times on our way to or from LA. It sort of our reward to ourselves for suffering through southern Cali. The room interiors are pretty average, but clean and functional. However, the view from the balconies are beautiful. Make sure to check in early enough to kick back and enjoy it. The grounds on the ocean side are also pretty to walk, with a nice viewing spot. The front desk is fine for general service and travel assistance. There is a place to rinse your car off in the morning, which is thoughtful of them. You will need to drive to get to a good eatery, but not far, and there quite a few good variety places covering all tastes.

Room Tip: Upper floor.

It is always a pleasant surprise when you find out just how comfy a hotel bed is, mattress, pillows, bedding , wonderful. After a long flight from Australia, followed by a 4 hour drive from LA, I wanted to kiss the staff for such a wonderful room. Wow what a view! To top it off you can walk to the property next door to a beautiful restaurant with yet more incredible views! Loved Pismo beach.

Room Tip: We were on the third floor, has an elevator.

The hotel is in the best location in Pismo Beach. The view from the rooms and the pool deck is one of the best we have seen on this three week trip to California. We booked only one night as a stop over on the way home and stayed for two because we enjoyed the place so much.

On a recent drive to Palm Springs from the San Francisco area we decided to stop in Pismo Beach, we had stayed there many years ago and it was a nice hotel then. We did not have a reservation and hoped for the best, Justin could not of been more welcoming he had us set up in a wonderful room with a view to die for in no time at all. the amenities were great fridge,microwave, and coffee maker and to have "real " glasses and coffee mugs so nice. We settled in with a bottle of wine and sat on the balcony and watched the waves etc, very relaxing. There are at least 4/5 restaurants within walking distance, and a nice continental breakfast at the hotel. On our drive back we decided to stop again and Justin gave us the same room as it was available,again wonderful. The views are amazing from nearly every spot and all rooms have been updated recently, close to freeway but you only hear the ocean ..... bliss

Room Tip: All rooms have great views

Combine this property with the fantastic restaurant next door (The Ventana) and the gorgeous view -- we give Best Western Shore Cliff Lodge 5 stars! We stay here every trip when we are in the area. It also has paved walkways for our morning exercise walk, and San Luis Obispo (one of our favorite towns in that area of the California coast) is right new door.

This is a just great Best Western, the ocean views are excellent and it has facilities for everyone, including retired couples, families with children (both big and small), and those trying to sneak away. The staff are very helpful plus it is within walking distance of lots of activities. Great value, unless you want to pay a lot more, why spend the money elsewhere.

Room Tip: top floor ocean view with balcony are super
