The Cliffs Resort, Pismo Beach, Ca.

Another real ‘jewel’ of a find, one block from the shops and restaurants in Pismo Beach is The Cliffs Resort. Here’s what I liked about this resort: First of all, the view. It sits on a bluff  right on the ocean; just about every room had a beautiful view of the water. Then, I found the staff  very professional. This California resort will dazzle you with exquisite details, from a heated outdoor pool to a relaxing spa treatment. You’ll love the first-class amenities, newly renovated accommodations, and alluring setting. Located on Shell Beach on California’s amazing central coast, it’s located halfway between San Francisco and Los Angeles. A scenic drive to Hearst Castle, and is close to nearby world-class golf courses, theatres, art galleries and more than 80 wineries. Many hotels are close to the water, but the oceanfront Pismo Beach California hotel sits on its very own bluff, overlooking its very own beach. Fresh from a recent guestroom and resta
