Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 5, 2009

We stayed in a two bedroof suite with the ocean view. The view was fantastic. The rooms were well apointed, clean. The kitchen included all necessary basics, including wine glasses! Three TV's were a bit much, but satisfied all in our family. The suite has a balcony with chaars at each bedroom and the main room. Everything worked in the room. It did not have "that stale hotel smell". The hotel grounds are well maintained despite the numerous sea gulls.

The included breakfast could be improved with inclusion of a make your own waffle machine - an addition becoming more prevelant in hotels offering a basic breakfast "for free"

Stay here for the great views, clean comfortable courteous hotel.

Only negative is the walk to the beach - the hotel is on top of the cliffs.

We picked this kind of at random for somewhere to stay halfway in between Napa and San Diego, and I was pleasantly surprised. This is the nicest Best Western I have ever stayed at, not even counting the view. The rooms seemed new, nice double sinks in the bathroom. The location is unbelieveable, right on the cliff and very scenic. I couldn't believe how inexpensive it was given the location. (do the rates go up in the summer?) We walked down to Pismo Beach for dinner. If I did it over I would be tempted to leave Napa a day early and spend another night here.

We booked Shore Cliff with a special, offered throught their e-mail club. I was surpised we could get a Saturday only, since it was the weekend of the Pismo Car show. It was a nice lower level King room, ocean view. Only real compalint is the pillows could have been bigger, but it was a nice room, and the view was awesome.
One note, when we checked out we were told a price that was about $30.00 lower than I expected to play. It was not much more than Motel 6 would have been.

The views from this hotel were just amazing. I can see why couples were getting married here - which may not be the first choice when you see the words 'Best Western' but when you see the view of the Ocean and the sunset, you see why.

The rooms were what you would expect of a 3 star. Service was pleasant.

The Pelican Restaurant next door, was a nice place to eat, again made better by the views whilst you eat.

The price was a lot. we paid $250 for one night of a holiday weekend. We felt this was a lot but there was not too much choice for Pismo Beach.

We would recommend this hotel if you are stopping in Pismo Beach. If you are driving from San Francisco to LA (like we were), then I would drive onto Santa Barbara and stay there - simply because there is more to see, do and eat at there.

This place is very nice with a gorgeous, cliff-edge view of the ocean and beaches including several little gazebos. It's nice enough that there was a very elegant wedding being performed when we arrived. The room was surprisingly well done and modern. The exterior is a little less flashy, but still decent. About the only thing keeping this place from a perfect score is a little road noise and a fair amount of guest noise (granted, we were in a room by the elevator).

We ended up in Pismo Beach due to a traffic accident in the area and the Highway being closed. We had no idea what to expect - we couldn't have asked for anything better. We got a room on the renovated side of the building on the third floor overlooking the ocean and pier. We got in late and couldn't see a thing, what a wonderful surprise in the morning. We enjoyed the view on the deck - the fitness centre - laundry - and complimentary breakfast. The staff was wonderful and made our unexpected visit amazing!

We stayed here one night when driving up to San Francisco. The room was spacious with a lovely bathroom and had nice views across the pacific. The room was basic but had all you might need (microwave, fridge etc). We were entitled to a free breakfast which did not have much of a selection with toast, cereals and some ill looking cakes. Would stay again but only for a night.
