Discover how Shore Cliff Hotel Conserves Water
California is currently experiencing a drought and we are taking measures to help conserve water.
We invite you to join us by using the following conservation solutions. We strive to be one of the best Pismo Beach hotels by focusing on the environment around our beachside hotel, so future generations can continue to enjoy the lush scenery.
Here are some of the ways we've implemented water conservation at our Pismo Beach hotel:
- Placed non-washable biodegradable cups in your room.
- Placed non-washable dishware in the breakfast room.
- Our policy is to change the sheets every third day of your stay and replace towels left on the floor.
- Converted from high water-using lawns, trees and shrubs to water efficient landscapes
- Installed artificial grass and rock paths to replace large grass areas.
- Reduced water levels in toilets, shower heads and washing machines.
- Made enhancements to pool filters and systems.
- Increased employee awareness of water use efficiency by offering a housekeeping bonus for lower usage.
- Ask the front desk how you can earn a $10 housekeeping credit.

So far in 2016 Shore Cliff Hotel has distributed 1,370 bars of soap.
In addition to conserving water, Shore Cliff Hotel is a proud partner with Clean the World, to collect and recycle soaps, shampoos, conditioners, lotions and gels that help fight the global spread of preventable disease. These efforts reduce unneeded waste from entering local landfills, while providing new hygiene products to impoverished areas that otherwise would not have any.
During the summer months, annual migration brings additional bird species to the area. In total, 350+ species live, nest, or pass through the area during any one year. Birds generally choose lush locations with high tree density and for some reason they seem to love checking into the Shore Cliff Hotel. Unfortunately, severely cutting, or trimming trees in the spring and summer can destroy their nests. There are laws that protect birds, their nests, eggs, and young from being removed, destroyed or harassed - which takes us to the lovely presents they leave behind. Because of our drought, we are limited in the amount of water we can use to clean up behind our feathered friends. We’re very sorry if this may have affected your stay, but with your understanding, great numbers of birds may be spared the destruction of their nests and young each year. In turn, our birds can achieve healthy populations, and continue to provide ecological and aesthetic benefits to humans. More importantly, it will ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy the bounty of birds that call Pismo Beach home.
