Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The Pacific Coast Highway, also known as Highway 101, is famous for its craggy, winding ocean views. The Best Western Plus Shore Cliff Lodge is perched cliffside along the famed rocky route about halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles.

Every room and suite comes with a Pacific Ocean view that stretches for miles and a private balcony. Have a seat on the private balcony, and take in the sight and sound of the crashing waves on Pismo Beach below. Once known as the Clam Capital of the World, sea otters can sometimes be spotted frolicking in the water and searching for fresh Pismo clams to snack on.

Typical guests fall into one of three categories: oenophiles who want the easy 15-minute drive to the Central Coast wineries, outdoors lovers who want to spend their time on the beach or the adjacent hiking trails and travelers with furry friends who make good use of the hotel’s dog park. If man’s best friend is your enemy, this is not the place for you.

The room setup encourages longer-term area exploration with kitchenettes in each room and a free hot breakfast daily. The décor here is updated traditional, albeit a bit bland. Blond and cherry wood furniture and trimmings make up the bulk of the design. There’s a few pieces of framed art on the walls and wall-to-wall carpeting. The lobby has more pizzazz with two-story floor to ceiling windows on either side to highlight the endless ocean views.
