My family and I cannot thank The Cliffs Resort enough for opening their hotel up to the evacuees of the Thomas Fire. We booked four rooms for our family and all our pets. All of the staff was OUTSTANDING. They worked with us to help get my grandmother in a handicapped accessible room. They made us feel welcome, safe, and valued. They were comforting, friendly, and outgoing. Everyone including the valets and restaurant staff were just amazing. I wish I could remember the names of the women who checked us in, they were wonderful! The rooms were very comfortable and clean. We were on the first floor and it was so perfect to be able to go out our sliding door to take our dog for a walk. He loved the lawns and the beach. It was the perfect hotel to stay at for four nights with a pet. We cannot thank The Cliffs enough for truly being our home away from home during this challenging time.

We trek down here from Silicon Valley almost every year as we love this hotel but sadly this time, we didn’t feel the love! There was a hiccup with the room offered on TripAdvisor compared to the room we were actually assigned. I understand that happens especially during holiday season and the evening Manager, Louie, couldn’t have been more kind assuring us of resolution the next morning but the morning shift manager did not take care of us as promised and gave us the option to leave or pay a lot more for an additional room....! Even this would have been tolerable except the room he gave us had a fan filter that was so grim I didn’t dare use the A/C. The bathroom sink was cracked in 2 places, the door did not close properly, the TV was half the size. There were foam pillows on the not so comfortable bed and the shutter had 2 broken slats. I just felt fed up and ripped off after spending so much time out of my precious vacation at the front desk 2 days in a row to end up with such a tired room that clearly needed attention. And they were not sold out of rooms because I checked online when searching for an alternative for the rest of the stay. Then to top it all off, the room keys stopped working- all of them and it’s no fun waiting in line at the front desk again for keys to be reset. I had to prove they didn’t work! So - dear travelers, be sure to check your booking confirmation with a fine toothed comb and remind yourselves you are paying for the location. Also beware of the overpriced thanksgiving lunch at Marisol. Their daily food and service is really very good but the thanksgiving buffet did not live up to the price. But the sunset was glorious!

We were just there for one night, but the room was clean and comfortable for the 3 of us. The pool was great for early morning laps as well as playing in the pool with the kids. We liked the walk from the property to the beach. Before we left, we had breakfast in the Marisol restaurant that had a delicious buffet which was priced well - good value. All the staff we interacted with were friendly and helpful. We appreciated every aspect of our stay here and will definitely stay here again.

We’ve stayed at the Cliffs over a dozen times in the last few years and we love it. The people are always friendly, never too busy and helpful. The view from most every room can see the ocean. The pool side rooms have the best view for us though. You see the pool, outdoor fire pit, outdoor restaurant patio and of course, the ocean. We love it here. Rooms are nicely decorated and very comfortable. Beds a great. We’ve tried other places in the same range in Pismo only to be extremely dissatisfied. Try the Cliffs you won’t be sorry.

The room was very relaxing. It was decorated great! It was very clean. The pool was very relaxing. The restaurant was great for happy hour and for buffet breakfast in the morning. The parking was easy. I will be staying at this hotel every time I head to San Luis Obispo. It was much better than any hotel in the SLO area. I have staying in many of the hotels in the area and this will be my choice hotel while my daughter is at college.
