"Great location, great view, convenient restaurant"
Checking into this hotel is a cinch and I highly recommend the Ocean view room through Expedia as the price is very good. The bottom floor opens up on to a patio that sits right off of the walkway down to the beach. This walkway is very manicured and nicely taken care of and lots of people, local and out of town, walk or exercise here with their dogs. It overlooks the ocean and you can hear the surf. You can also see Avila beach.
The room has been updated/remodeled however you can tell that some corners were cut as there was mold on the ceiling under the paint and a few other questionable things, but the room is overall very comfortable with a fireplace and great amenities.
Best Western Shelter Cove was our 2nd hotel stop along a road trip from San Francisco to LA. It was the end of July and there was very thick fog so it was hard to see the surroundings at night. However, it was an excellent place to stop for the night - we actually wished we would have given ourselves more time there! We thought the price we paid was a bit high for a Best Western, and after our stay we still wished it was cheaper (only for the sake of trying to keep our trip on budget) but we could understand it. Our room was quite large, and very clean. It was up-to-date, and the balcony overlooking the pool and ocean was nice to have. We did have the breakfast, and found it to be exactly what we needed. The staff were friendly, and represented the hotel very well.
This hotel is a great find in the Pismo Beach area - what a steal of a deal! It is literally steps from the ocean. The rooms are very clean and nice, with a flat screen tv, microwave, and fridge! The staff are also very pleasant - no complaints. In the morning, there is free coffee, tea, fresh/moist muffins, and fruit (oranges, apples, etc). It's not 5-star luxury but, this place is beyond worth it for the price. I would stay here again!
It's not just some highway motel--the rooms have been modernized with all the furniture and carpeting being new. They have a nice flat screen TV and HBO! There is also a nice grassy picnic area with benches. Best of all, it is walking distance from the dining/shopping area. I wouldn't depend on the breakfast too much--just some cereal and pastries, but the in-room coffee and free coffee at the office during breakfast hours were satisfying. Also, free Wi-Fi and a table with chairs in the room for those who want to eat in or set up a laptop.
