My husband and I love the Central California Coast. We live near the beach in SoCal but enjoy getting away from the busy beach area. We decided to do a pre Valentine's Day getaway to enjoy good food, beautiful scenery, and play a little golf. We booked an ocean view room at the Shore Cliff Lodge and it was lovely.... More

It was our special get away, and Shore Cliff was our destination. We have stayed here before and had high expectations. Our expectations were met and it was a very healing mini-vacation. Seeing elephant seals, gift shops, breakfast in bed, moonstones on the beach, it was all great.

We loved this place!! The view from the room was amazing, the waves crashing in the cove, the sunsets behind the gazebo on the point. The view from the pool and jacuzzi over the ocean….wow! Of course there are so many restaurants in the area, next door, Pismo Beach, Shell Beach and SLO is a short drive away. The only... More

We had a great time staying here with our dog. The hotel is very dog-friendly - lots of great suggestions for meals and hikes at check-in. Walking distance to a dog-friendly beach. We will definitely come back here.

Our favorite place to stay on the coast of Ca. Outstanding uninterrupted ocean views, sounds of waves are very soothing and dolphins playing just off shore makes it a real treat. The breakfast bar is heavy on carbs but the totally cool pancake machine makes up for the lack of protein.

I think that this hotel was probably the best that we have stayed in during the past three weeks, and, although a motel, it seemed more like a proper English-type hotel with a seamless transition from car park to hotel room,as opposed to the bedroom merely being an extension of the car park. The bedroom and adapted bathroom were terrific,... More

Beautiful views, & grounds, comfy rooms, beach access, good breakfast and pleasant staff. A short walk to town with lots of restaurants and a long boardwalk and pier. Fantastic beach. We look forward to spending more time here.

This property doesn't look like much from the road but the rooms are very nice, and the view of the ocean is wonderful. The seagulls and pelicans sit on the cliff just outside the fenced off garden and lawn. Bunny hop around in the bushes. The pool was warm and the breakfast was good and on real plates. You can...
