I found Cardiff by the Sea online and decided to stay overnight there on my return from Mission Viejo. I got the Country Pine room which was spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable. The place has a parking area beneath the building and is an easy walk to the beach. Brooklyn (sp?) was super nice and friendly during my stay -... More

Ok, yes the property is a little dated. But it is kind of quaint and charming in a dated kind of way. The girls at the front desk were very nice. Our room was clean, the AC worked very well, and there were plenty of towels for the 2 of us. When it comes down to it, that is all... More

I booked this hotel through hotel tonight.com. I chose it because of it being so close to the beach and mostly because of the rooftop hot tub. Upon arrival I found out that the room I received did not have an ocean view so I asked to tour the available rooms. Krishna took me on the tour showing me all... More

Very quiet for a beach city. 5 minutes from the ocean, beautiful beaches. Rooms are very spacious, continental breakfast is only mediocre. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Parking is underground and limited, some street parking is available.

My husband, daughter and I were passing through Cardiff for an evening to visit a friend. We decided to stay at the Cardiff by the Sea Lodge as it was quite close to her place. It is in an amazing location right near some great restaurants and the beach and also has its own dedicated parking garage. The rooms are... More

Upon arrival the hostess offered us coffee, tea, water and delicious lemon cakes.After taking us to our amazing room she lit the firepit, offered to make us smores and brought us wine glasses.Needless to say, the service was second to none!

We are so happy that you felt comfortable - and we would love it if you... More

My wife Kathryn and I stayed at this hotel (B&B) from 05/25/2014-05/30/2014. The business was just purchased by a new firm. The service was exceptional. The hotel has a rustic charm with rooftop garden, fountain, fire pit and a hot tub and of course a view of the pacific ocean, that is one block away. The room that we stayed... More
