Just off the 101, Pismo Beach is the ideal pit stop on a California road trip. The Cliffs, perched on an oceanfront bluff, brings all the coastal feels to match this sunny situation.

The Cliffs is the kind of place designed for unwinding. You’ll feel it the moment you step into the lobby. Perhaps it’s the aromatherapy wafting from the spa. Or the easy-going atmosphere at its oceanfront restaurant. Or maybe it’s simply the sound of the lapping Pacific Ocean waves that bestows its sense of calm.
