Location was beautiful! Some of the staff was great & others were not so pleasing. We were the only event that day but it was on a busy weekend apparently there was an event going on so it was difficult for my family and friends to get a parking as well as my vendors. They did not want to give them parking passes and told my guest to park 1-2 blocks away & walk :(
On day of my wedding I was told I could not decorate the gazebo when upon booking I was told I could. Make sure you ask all the questions when booking and get EVERYTHING in writing! (Housekeeping was more helpful than the office staff, Amber was the exception, Thank you Amber!)

Out of all of the vendors we had in the wedding process, this was BY FAR the WORST experience. You absolutely pay $1000 just for someone to set up 100 chairs and that is IT. And then you still have to pay for your hotel rooms, of which they have no bridal suite or anywhere to get ready for the wedding.

We had NO help we when arrived there the day before. No coordinator for the rehearsal or anyone even there to greet us. We had to figure out where to stand, where to hide me (the bride) and the bridal party before the wedding, how to even access the ceremony site all on our own. On the day of the wedding, we asked the front desk to not allow guests to walk through the downstairs pool lobby area because that was where we decided to hide. About every minute, one or two of our guests would walk through the lobby anyway and someone would go back up and, AGAIN, ask them to please direct them elsewhere. FIVE TIMES this happened until one guy said "well, where are we supposed to tell them to go??" THAT IS YOUR JOB TO KNOW THAT!

About four weeks before the wedding, my mom noticed that the wedding arch was rusting on the top and bottom. She spoke with a manager (whom I will remain nameless) who said they would "try" to paint it. A week before the wedding, it still wasn't painted. My mom asked to speak to the boss' boss. She said they would "try" to get to it. The day before the wedding we asked IN PERSON why the arch still wasn't painted and the lady working there (another manager) said we should have given more notice as this was the first she had heard about it...

From start to finish I never saw ANYONE other than the front desk receptionist the entire time we were there. No one seemed to care that we spent a grand to look at a pretty view and sit in their chairs. We only had the ceremony there. I can't imagine how awful it would be to have the reception there as well. I do NOT recommend Best Western Shelter Cove. Rude and unhelpful people.

If you want an beautiful wedding ceremony with a backdrop of the Pacific (mine included whales spouting in the distance and hummingbirds flitting in and out of the bushes--October is a beautiful time in Pismo Beach), this is the place for you. We worked with Margarita, who was very accomodating, and though she is not a wedding planner, she was very open to suggestions and worked with us however she could. Chairs for 100 people are available and there is a white gazebo... just add your own florals and voila! A gorgeous ceremony!

If I had to re-do my ceremony, I'd pick this venue again without hesitation.
