This motel is a good example of what can be achieved if you try that bit harder. Pleasant room, helpful staff and the fastest clothes wash and dry in the West. Breakfast was basic in spartan surroundings but a decent choice of food and good coffee.
I shall stay here again.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN PLUS Shore Cliff Lodge Pismo Beach
This hotel was out of a dream... the view from the pool and the room was exceptional!!!! I would highly suggest you go online to do reserve this hotel. We were told at the desk we would be reserving a room for $299.00 but when we called the toll free number we got it for $129.00.
The breakfast was excellent....
Best hotel I've stay at in California!!!
Wow. That's all I can say. AWESOME hotel. AWESOME view. I have not stayed at a better hotel in a better location this entire time of living in California. All rooms have a view...and they mean it. Ours was facing the Pacific Ocean on the 1st floor (it's a 2-story hotel). Waking up to the sunrise and hearing the waves at night...beautiful. We saw a wedding take place in the courtyard just facing our room w/the ocean in the background. It was sooooo nice. And the better part? We stayed on Memorial Day wknd...for $80!! Unbelievable!! I think hotels.com goofed because I never found this hotel for that low price since then. It runs about $200 any time of the year...but definitely recommended!! Would definitely stay at again! Perfect wedding spot for a small wedding as well!!
Fantastic! What a great location!!
The hotel is in an excellent location and the rooms are amazing. Our room has two large double beds, a fridge and microwave as well as all of the normal things. The views from the hotel are out of this world and every room has a sea view it is a little taste of paradise.
The swimming pool is great and there are plenty of sun beds round the side. The beach is just minutes away as well as some great shops including an outlet mall. Buffet style breakfast is also very nice and the views from the restaurant are also excellent.
We will definitely be going back to this hotel in the future!!!!
I booked a night at this fabulous hotel as a birthday treat for my wife while we were on holiday in California.
The pictures I'd seen in brochures and on the BW web site made the hotel look like the setting for a romantic novel, perched on a cliff top with crashing waves down below.
Well, in reality it was even better than that. When the guy checking us in saw that it was my wife's birthday, he upgraded us to a suite, which was incredible. We had two bedrooms (both with balconies facing out over the ocean), a bathroom, and a lounge/kitchen with balcony.
We ate at the restaurant attached to the hotel and, although it was a little expensive, the food was outstanding.
As we were travelling up the coast we were only there for one night...but we both wished we could have stayed for a couple of weeks. I have no doubt we will go back there in the future for a longer stay.
Beautiful, romantic and relaxing
This was a fantastic hotel. We paid about $90 a night for this place and we only wished we could have stayed for longer. I agree Pismo Beach hasn't got much to do but when you have the most beautiful, breathtaking scenes everywhere you look who needs to be entertained. The room was very clean and comfortable with a fridge, microwave and TV. The breakfast was more than enough in the restaurant that adjoins the hotel (Pelican Point). In addition we ate in the restaurant and it was really good and great value too. The pool is wonderful and looks out over the sea. Probably one of the best all round hotels I've stayed in and most definitiely has the best views.
What happened to customer service?
My mom was taking my Dad to Pismo Beach for a special weekend. I thought it would be nice to call ahead to the Shore Cliff and have a nice bottle of wine delivered to their room upon arrival.
I called the number to the hotel and Scott answered. I said, "Hi Scott, my parents are checking into your hotel tonight and I was wondering if I could arrange for a bottle of wine to be sent to their room"? Silence. Scott finally said, "You will have to talk to the restaurant, let me connect you" and he was gone. I was then promptly disconnected. I called back, "Hi Scott, I was just talking to you about the wine and you were transferring me to the restaurant, I must have been disconnected". Scott replied in an irritated voice, "I can't transfer you, you have to hang up and call the restaurant directly, here's the number". "Thank you, Scott", I said as he mumbled "Uh huh" and was gone again
I then called the restaurant and said, "My parents are checking into your hotel tonight and I was wondering if I could arrange for a bottle of wine to be sent to their room"? Silence. Finally, the woman said, "You will have to arrange that through the hotel". I said, "I just spoke with the hotel and they said to call the restaurant". She said, "Well, you will have to come into the restaurant and arrange this". I said, "I live 200 miles away". Silence. She finally said, "Hold on" and again, I was disconnected.
I'm sure much to everyone's relief, I didn't call back and they did not have to be burdened with what was obviously a special request. If you decide to stay there, please don't ask for anything special.
Stayed here June '04. Absolutely Superb!
Incredibly romantic location with amazing sea views. Excellently finished, very spacious re-furbished rooms. Staff were really helpful and parking is free. A stop-off must on the Highway 1 drive.
If I had to say anything negative, it would be that there's not much to do nearby, but frankly, you don't need to. I wish I could have stayed for longer...
Room #114 Rocked!! The best yet!
My best friend was married there at the Best Western Shore Cliff Lodge this last Saturday, June 6th 2004. I must say that this hotel was the best hotel I have stayed in yet, in California. As much as I travel, having a pleasant room is important, but having a suite along the coast is just the best ever. At night hearing those waves crash against the cliffs were amazing. Our views were spectacular, and I will definitely be renting from you again in the future! I have also recommended Shore Cliff to several family and friends to check out. Your staff was exceptional at getting us things we needed promptly, and the wedding was just perfect. I must say it was the perfect event for the perfect friend, and it couldn't have been any more beautiful than that!! Thanks so much Shore Cliff Lodge!! I hope to see you all again soon! In March, we'll rent a suite for my birthday and go up and enjoy the view! Best wishes!
Room with a view but thats all!!
Room 225 had a great view, but that was it! We paid $127 for a regular size room on Dec 20th, the Hotel was rated as 3 starts by AAA in its current conditions I would only give it 1 1/2 stars. There is still contruction going. This place needs major renovation and updating. You can hear the ocean waves but you can also hear all the squaking birds living on the cliffs. They were loudest at 2 am in the morning. They were so loud I could hear them over the crashing waves! I would not reccomend this place at all, Try the Lighthouse, Sea Crest, Kon Tiki. I would only book this place again as a last resort. Don't get suckered in by the continetal breakfast. McDonals has better tasting food.
Breathtaking views but under construction
This hotel has some of the finest views of the Pacific in California.
Our room, #319, was quite large but sparsely furnished. Beds were comfortable and everything was clean. Nice balcony. The hotel is getting a little dingy - worn carpeting, dinged paint. The biggest problem currently is there is a lot of construction going on. There were workers putting up a new pool fence ( working until 7 at night).
There were three large cranes shoring up the cliffs and part of the property and parking was blocked by this. ( One night, we got back at 10:00 P.M. and there were only 3 parking spots left - far from our room. There is painting going on everywhere - along with wet paint signs. The Buffet Breakfast is poorly presented - more things than you need but not very appetizing. The juice machine is not nice - orange juice very thin and tasteless. Worth a visit but make sure they are through with their construction before you go. (Visited 23,24,25 July 2003)

... Glacier Point lookout is amazing! You are on a cliff that is over 3,000 feet above the valley below you. The thing I picked out to measure was a concrete truck, it looked like it was only a inch long. It was like being up in the Sears tower. Wish we could have gotten here when we planned on being here because we really would have liked to stay for a week.

Several wood carvers were brought in for the specialty work of hand carving the doors, beams, railings and the many other carved adornments.

Saw the campus of Stanford and Santa Clara. Both very nice from the fraction I saw. Stanford is pretty big and Santa Clara is pretty small. Can't go into Santa Clara without talking to security. Went to Chilis for the first time since 2007 I think, not much has changed there. Still unseasonable cold here in Cali. Hasn't got higher than mid 60s on the entire trip so far. Had to wear jeans and a sweater every single day so far. Pepperdine and LA ...
