My wife and I jumped into our car and decided to go up to Pismo Beach area.
While driving with our boxer she was looking for hotels for us and found a few different hotels in the area but we decided on Cottage in by the Sea, largely because they had a few "pet rooms".
We would have liked on of the ocean view rooms but we had our dog with us.
Upon arrival we checked in to a very friendly staff, our room was super clean and it even had a back door which led out to a small area for pets.
It was warm so the fireplace wasn't needed but Air conditioning would have been nice, there was a ceiling fan that worked well enough.
Great location, walk to Downtown Pismo along the sand or over to Shell Beach for dinner etc.
Would definitely stay here again
Our room was really nice, beautiful California decor and spacious, and view of the beach was wonderful. The included breakfast was good, served in the Galley with tables on the porch - very relaxing. I would definitely go back.
"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.
