GAZEBO BY THE SEA - Pismo Beach

GAZEBO BY THE SEA

Best Western Shore Cliff Lodge: GREAT VIEW OF THE PACIFIC OCEAN Best Western Shore Cliff Lodge Review
Show Prices

Pismo Beach has a lot of hotel/motels to choose among, but in my opinion, none come close to the Shore Cliff Lodge when it comes to the view. Magnificent is all I can say of the beauty that is just outside your balcony. I didn't want to go out, that's how much I enjoyed the view.

The hotel has great sound proofing on the walls and the balcony door left open allows the full sound of the crashing waves able to fill the spacious room. The bedding is first class and sleep comes easy with the ocean breeze. This is a case of photos say more than my words, so I have a travelogue on the property as well as a movie of the ocean waves beneath the balcony. The staff are very helpful and cheerful. I felt welcomed from the first greeting until I departed. Only 11 miles to San Luis Obispo and within an hour to Cambria, Morro Bay, or Paso Robles wine country.

HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS RECEPTION BUILDING - Pismo Beach

HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS RECEPTION BUILDING

HOLIDAY INN EXPRESS GROVER BEACH-PISMO BEACH: NEAR THE PISMO BEACH OUTLET STORES

Location is key to this Holiday Inn Express. Within a couple of miles are the Outlet Stores of Pismo Beach, the main street of Pismo Beach, the smooth sand beaches, the fishing pier at Pismo Beach, and the Monarch Butterfly Grove. Within ten miles and you are at the Pismo sand dunes, San Luis Obispo, the start of Hwy 1, Avila Beach, and Edna Valley wineries. Many fine restaurants are located nearby.

The hotel has two separate buildings and a lobby in the center of the driveway. One building is next to Oak Park Blvd and tends to be a little noisy. Try to get a room in the 2nd building that is not near the street. I asked for a room in the 2nd building and it was very quiet at night. The room was spacious with an outside balcony but the downside is that the A/C unit was old fashioned and did not get cold enough for my liking. Price wise, it is hard to beat the nightly charge considering that this is a prime area near the beaches and the wine country of San Luis Obispo. The reception staff were friendly and helpful which made for a pleasant stay. Now, if the A/C could get a little cooler.


Unique Qualities: The bed was very comfortable and being king size even better. The pool and spa are a little bit of a walk down a hill but very private. The included buffet breakfast was very nice featuring a cheese omelet and sausage patty one day and scrambled eggs and bacon the next day.
