The beauty of the Central Coast is epitomized here at Shore Cliff, complimented by lovely amenities and ocean views in every room with incredible sunsets. It is the perfect resting place between Northern and Southern California. We love it here!

An ocean view room is a must. Continental breakfast hits the spot. Employees are very friendly and very accommodating. They found out we were on our honeymoon and gifted us a bottle of wine. We enjoyed our stay; the view is everything.

Very nice staff and excellent service. The rooms were very nice and clean, located in a perfect area. Room service would come right after we called. Continental breakfast was very nice and came in handy to start our day. Would recommend staying here to anyone who is looking for great staff, service, and clean rooms. Great place to stay for a relaxing time!

We've never stayed in an oceanfront hotel before, but we decided to this time because we were celebrating our wedding anniversary and our son's birthday. IT WAS AMAZING!!! The staff is all very friendly and professional. They even prepared a heart with rose petals on the bed for us and a super cute elephant made of towels for our son. The room was spotless, and the view was awesome. We could hear and see the waves the whole time which made it so relaxing. We enjoyed breakfast each morning in the garden and a nightly beach walk to the pier. Never having to think about finding parking added to our no-stress weekend, because we just walked everywhere. The property is so pretty and well maintained. This was the best beach vacation we've ever had! We plan to save up our money and do it again ASAP!

Came here for the first time, and won’t be the last! Great hotel with an amazing view. Beautiful and modern room with a balcony. Great photo opportunities. The helpful staff makes you feel important and right at home.

My family of six stayed at this hotel in July 2021. It was our first time at Pismo Beach, so I had no recommendations for hotels - just internet reviews. There was no availability online, but I called the hotel and they promised to call me if anything opened up-and they did. We stayed in a two-bedroom suite overlooking the ocean. Both rooms were spacious, and they also had a large living room that served as an additional sleeping space. Hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen was stocked with plates, cups, wine glasses, utensils, water, coffee, tea, etc. Both rooms and the living room had large balconies with seating - very nice.

My husband and I visited the Shore Cliff Hotel for our 10-year anniversary since we got married there! It was even better than 10 years ago! The room was sparkling clean with all the usual amenities (coffee, tea, fridge, etc). I loved the wallpaper, the chairs on the balcony, and the blinds on the patio door. The bed was comfortable, desk with two chairs, a sofa, large TV. Breakfast is served daily and it's delicious! The beef tamales were easily the best I've ever tasted! They are now using an SMS-based service (vs. 10 years ago!) ... just text them if you need anything! I loved it!!! We will definitely be back and we won't wait another 10 years, either!

Nice and friendly staff. Beautiful setting and views. Very relaxing listening to the ocean sounds. You will sleep like a baby listening to the waves at night. Nice little breakfast in the morning. Easy beach access for walks on the beach. Great dining choices nearby. Rooms have great balconies or patios for watching the ocean and listening to the surf. Nice heated pool for fun or swimming laps.

Shore Cliff Hotel did a great job in this difficult time we are having in the world today. The staff did an excellent job offering us breakfast every morning with a smile. The food handlers, housekeeping, and front desk were all very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. Thank you to all your staff. You made our 50th anniversary a very happy stay with you.

-Tbillecci, TripAdvisor


Beautiful Ocean views, great room with a view of the pier. Terrific breakfast and a fabulous walking path. Nice pool and hot tub. Restaurant next door with an ocean view had great food and was very convenient. Easy check-in and checkout. Will definitely be back.

-Mjmatetich2022, TripAdvisor


Gorgeous views from our room right on the cliff overlooking the ocean. Very friendly staff with attention to detail — from providing a charging station for our EV, to serving up tasty hot tamales at the daily breakfast. We will definitely return.

Best birthday weekend ever! Had a wonderful stay! The staff was very friendly, courteous, and attentive. Made me feel special by adding the cute little towel elephants, candy, and a birthday card in my room. Can't wait for my next trip back!!

This is our third visit to Shore Cliff. We go whale watching in Avilla Bay, and the location of the hotel is great. Also, you can walk on the beach from the Hotel to the Pismo pier. Rooms are clean and well kept. They have a great breakfast every morning. We highly recommend Shore Cliff Hotel.



EXCEPTIONAL experience!! First time in Pismo Beach and we booked an oceanfront room, and we were so glad we did! They didn't originally have a king bed, only 2 queens on a 3-day Valentine's Day weekend. I called and requested a king bed if it becomes available and they were able to accommodate me. I also paid for rose petals on the bed, and OMG.... they did an AMAZING job!! So beautiful!! Even during COVID, they provided a variety of choices for breakfast and had staff serving hot breakfast. The resort itself was very nice and clean, and the view..... OH MYYY GOSHHH!!

Went there for a wedding anniversary and the hotel went above and beyond to make our stay feel personalized. Friendly staff, fair rates, beautiful location. Would highly recommend it and we will definitely stay again.

My husband and I had an unexpected kid-free weekend and decided to do our favorite thing, a staycation at one of our favorite hotels. Beautiful view, affordable cost, clean, comfortable room. Just what we needed before returning to reality. Can’t wait to staycation again soon! Thank you!

We needed a getaway and found it at Shore Cliff. Beautiful balcony view at an affordable price. Quick check-in and great service. Will definitely go back! The daily breakfast was another bonus plus the kids enjoyed the heated pool. There’s something about the ocean that just calms and restores your psyche.

-Francis A A, TripAdvisor


Great reasonable-priced hotel. Nice clean rooms with wonderful views of the ocean. Beautiful clean pool! Tasty breakfast included, can't beat that. Walking paths all the way down to the beach and close to the pier where there is shopping.

-ShellM0917, TripAdvisor


This place is oceanfront with ocean view rooms. We booked this place because of the following reasons: 1. The location is just perfect... the view is wonderful and just a walk away from the beach. 2. The breakfast is good. They had fruits, waffles, bagels, cereal, etc. 3. Parking and Wi-Fi are included in the room rate. You don’t have to worry about it when you check out wondering how much you’ll be paying. 4. The staff is courteous and welcoming. They are always ready to help out. 5. Just a walk away from a good restaurant. 6. The room is spacious and has a fridge and microwave. We will definitely come back here sometime soon. Thanks for the wonderful service.

The staff was super nice and helpful my kids enjoyed the pool and had a lot of fun. The room had a beautiful view and the room was clean. The staff was nice. I would really recommend staying here!
