We started our spring break vacation in Pismo Beach which is 188 miles (303 kilometers) north of Los Angeles. Having a Best Western Rewards membership I booked Best Western properties for all three cities online. It was my first time at the Best Western Plus: Shelter Cove Lodge and definitely will not be my last stay. The hotel is located at 2651 Price Street – only a few minutes away from U.S. Route 101. Over the years I have stayed in all types of accommodations from camping in a tent, to sleeping in a hostel, to staying beachfront in a condo in Maui, and I have to tell you this hotel was pretty amazing for being so moderately priced.
All rooms have an ocean view that you can take in from your balcony! There are two floors on the property, continental breakfast was included, free parking, an ocean view pool and hot tub, and there was a little secluded beach just steps away from the hotel. Luckily we were able to take advantage of all of these amenities. Max and I were so happy with this hotel that it was the highlight of our stay in Pismo Beach. Our personal favorite moment of the day was going on the balcony in the late afternoon taking in views of the Pacific. It was heavenly… especially after a busy day exploring the area. Although we enjoyed the remainder of our trip in Santa Cruz and San Francisco each evening we thought back to our time in Pismo Beach, relaxing together at the hotel in the evening taking in the beautiful view.
This property is such a gem that I want everyone to know about it. Please note that there is another Best Western Plus property on Price Street so if you want to stay here be sure to book the Shelter Cove Lodge Hotel. Whenever we return to Pismo Beach I will not hesitate to book this property again.
This was our walk to the beach and hanging out on the shore.
Our balcony was a favorite spot for everyone, especially for the adults!
