An oceanfront bargain near Pismo Beach.
Although not quite as attractive as its sister hotel, the Best Western Shelter Cove Lodge, every guest room here at this upmarket Best Western property has brand-name bath amenities, a coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, cable TV with pay-per-view movies, free high-speed Internet access, and either a king-sized bed or two queens. Many rooms also have ocean views and either tiled balconies or patios, letting you fall asleep to the sound of the surf. Otherwise, the rooms are fairly well soundproofed, so you shouldn't overhear much noise from your neighbors. There's an outdoor heated swimming pool, whirlpool spa, and glass-enclosed sun deck with ocean views at the back of the manicured property, as well as nature paths for enjoying the Pacific Ocean vistas. Extra amenities include a small fitness room and a casual on-site dining option, the Pelican Point Restaurant. Downtown Pismo Beach, with its boutique shops, eateries, and outdoor activities, is a short drive away.
