Overall: We chose this hotel for the view, location and the overall vibe that we had while doing our research. Had some really high hopes, maybe too much. Most of what I anticipated came to fruition except maybe the views from our room was a big disappointment. In hindsight I would not have paid any extra for such as room....

Corporate has done a great job of updating this hotel As I have been a chief engineer, at a full service hotel, for over 10 years, I know of all the problems an older hotel can have, and I am very satisfied with ShoreCliff and plan to continue to...

The bathroom had wonderful lighting which helped for applying make up....

Incredible views of the pier and ocean. Clean facility with extremely friendly and helpful staff. Coffee in the room and nice extended breakfast. The restaurant next door, Ventana, is excellent and in walking distance. Short drive to downtown Pismo with plenty of places to shop and dine.

I stayed in Rm 101, which is at the far southern end of the hotel. There are six or seven rooms in that area reserved for pets. The room was nice, everything about the hotel was fine, and the view was fabulous. The room has a small deck / balcony that faces south, which means the Pismo Pier, Guadalupe Dunes...

Wedding venue on the cliff is part of the Shore Cliff Lodge, but the wedding venue and reception was run by the Ventana Grill next door. We wanted the bride and groom to share separate rooms, and we also had our kids and grand kids with us so...
