Came here for our anniversary and was very pleased with the luxurious apartment-like room we had, amazing view and top notch customer service. The surrounding area offered plenty to do when we weren't enjoying the view from our amazing room or walking along the beach. Will most definitely stay here again!

While looking for options to spend our third anniversary night (which happened to be on a weekend this year) one of our friends suggested we try out Dolphin Bay Resort. Looking at the website, we decided to give this a try. We made a phone call to book a reservation for one night and happen to talk to the Manager, Erica. She was very helpful with the reservation process & after hearing that it was our anniversary she said she would make our stay special. We spent one night at the resort and we were very happy with our stay. Erica even had the room ready couple of hours before and arranged some special stuff for our anniversary. We got the best 1BR suite and the views were ecstatic. We would highly recommend the resort to anyone who would want to spend a day or two with their special one.

Loved everything about the hotel room. Best part were the local winery's. We were referred to a local winery called Kelsey, upon arrival we saw the grounds were covered wih peacocks. They were beautiful. We were able to feed them and they came righ up to the table you are sitting at. It was a great experience. It's a very small vineyard but the wine was good and the view was lovely.

I didn't like how dirty the beach was. My husband and I wanted to take a walk along the water and there was seaweed infested with nats and bugs every step we took. ( I'm not afraid of a little seaweed or bugs. This was like something I have never seen before) we also saw a dead baby seal and the voltures were eating it and 4 big shore birds on the beach also dead. I'm not sure if that was all caused from the recent hurricanes but I think the hotel should have cleaned their beach for their guests. It was very unpleasant.

Mostly good experience overall. This hotel is undergoing some remodeling/reconstruction, so the lobby and breakfast room were mostly out of commission. So we just drove to their sister property for breakfast. The first room they gave us was completely torn apart, so that kind of unnerved us, but they immediately gave us a different room just down the way from the first, so no problems there. The ocean view was exactly what we wanted and very peaceful.

Everything was great!Just one thing....HBO was advertised as complimentary showing on CH. 2, however the number of days we were there, there was no HBO, just some weird religious programming. We told 2 of the staff members, but didnt see any movement. We are used to watching HBO at home, so it was dissapoingting not to have it in our room, especially after advertised. Other than that....great hotel! Spectacular views.

We arrived a bit early, but the staff was eager to assist us in securing our room in a timely manner. Our part of the building has been around for quite some time, but the maintenance has not been neglected. Everything was spotlessly clean, neat, and 100% functional. Parking was a bit of an issue, but not so much as to detract from our stay. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place, and we will definitely return.

I have stayed at many of the Best Western in the area and have been very pleased with my accomadations. But the B.W. Plus Shore Cliff Lodge was AWESOME. The hotel sits on top of a bluff overlooking the Pacific ocean and with an incredible view of Pismo Beach. We stayed in a room on the far south end of the property which gave us the incredible views. Our room had a balcony where we could sit out on and take in the beauty that surrounded us while sipping our hot cup of coffee. Having just lost my husband unexpectedly, this was exactly what I needed. My daughter and I spent time reflecting and talking on the balcony while we let our surrounding oceanview embrace us. Our room was very clean and it had a microwave, fridge and coffeemaker. very spacious room and large and clean bathrooms. The toiletries they supply are from Bath & Body Works. These rooms have been recently renovated. Gorgeous!! The staff were all very cordial and accomadating. They were pleasant and friendly. The price ...

The location of this hotel is so convenient. We could easily walk to several of our favorite places to eat and is also easy walking distance to beach. View from balcony was great even though telephone lines ran through it but Pismo downtown is old so therefore telephone lines. Hotel serves a more quiet crowd.

The balcony and the view. The room layout was also nice.

Everything was OK. The furnishings, specifically the chairs, could have been more comfortable.

Overall this is a great place. Three levels, with the top floor having great ocean views, although some angles are 'marred' by electrical highlines. Free DVD movies is nice, and closeness to the beach, pier, boardwalk, and eateries make this a place we will return to.

I stayed here with my family of 4 for three nights in August 2013.  We got a 'partial view' room on the second floor with a patio.  It was pricey but it seemed to be cheaper than other nearby hotels located right on the beach.  Not getting a full ocean view didn't really concern me much.  Everyone there was super nice and friendly.  They were very accommodating.  I thought the breakfast was outstanding, offing far more than I have seen at many other hotels.  The hot tub was hot enough, and even though the hotel was pretty booked I didn't think it was very crowded.  It it situated close enough to the main street area that we walked to the surf shop to rent surf boards and wet suits and carried them back to the beach area by the hotel.  They offered a rollaway bed for an extra $15/night which was really comfortable.

Spent 4 days with our 7 year old granddaughter! She had a delightful time and wanted to stay longer. Lots of 'kid friendly' activities, pool, beautiful beach ( just right for boogie boarding), giant checker game....cute gifts shops, playground next to the complex and the pier provided enough for her to do. Lovely rooms - clean, comfortable beds...the kitchenette is a real plus when traveling with a child. We will definitely be back. Avila beach, though small... is beautiful!

Though I generally prefer an updated modern hotel stay, The INN is a great place for a special moment, with a special someone, when just being together is an adventure in itself. Great location and awsome community outdoor patio area for enjoying the night sky. The stuff memories are made of!

If you are looking for a fancy place... this is not it. However the location is great and the relaxation area on the roof is really cool. We had an ocean front room. It was really nice to listen to the waves all night and day. The room was a bit pricey, but I would recommend staying here at least once.

Amenities include private hot tub on each balcony; fireplace in every room; excellent beds and linens; right on Pismo Beach. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and the bottle of Pinot Noir on arrival was a nice touch. There is a good gift shop area in the lobby with reasonable prices. The breakfast basket delivered to the door (order placed the night before) was fabulous, very well done, and what was supposed to be hot, was hot - for $5.00 - REALLY!

Prices are either the average per night price per room or first night of stay. You can select to display the prices with or without our estimate of taxes & fees (which may not appear on provider's booking page but will be charged at hotel checkout). Before you complete your reservation, verify the total cost on the provider's site. Prices and availability are not guaranteed.

Here's why:

We’re not the seller
At KAYAK we don’t set prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.

We aggregate tons of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we don't guarantee prices we find.

Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car rentals can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find on occasion that certain prices are no longer available.

More questions or if you have a bad price to report to us
Please send us an email and someone from our team will get back to you promptly.
