Probably the best value on El Mar Drive. This is an older style motel that has a great staff (Rosetta & Shirley) and all the comforts of a vintage hotel. It is not the Ritz Carlton, nor is it meant to be. We enjoy the separate bedroom and the beautiful views of the ocean across the street.......

Our room (103) was well located on the ground floor a few feet from the pool. The facility offered a cooker, microwave oven, fridge/ freezer, coffee maker and kettle. Very limited counter space but we managed perfectly well. I was a little concerned by some previous reviews but towels were changed daily and beds made if required. This is not... More

I stayed here in January of 2015 because my parents wanted to stay here and my family rented our own room to be with them. While this is not my type of place I usually stay at it was fine. There are only 12 rooms at this Hotel with one free parking spot for each room. The rooms are small... More

We have stayed here yearly for about 12 years, and it has been slowing going downhill. For me, this year was the last year. Although the room is quite large (1-bedroom apartment with kitchen) it was filthy. I mean floor to ceiling bad, including things left behind from prior guests. I do think the manager tries her best, but I... More

I have to beg to differ on the bad review "Stay Away" I have been coming to Sea Cliff since the early 70's. The management and the regulars that stay at Sea Cliff are like family. My husband and I have met some wonderful people here. Our children have spend most of their vacations here at Sea Cliff. They are... More

I'll keep this simple: A) only plus to this resort is that it is across the street from the beach. B) pool not maintained. Pool surround cluttered/messy. No one takes the time to keep things in order. C) rooms only surface cleaned, by that I mean: - dirty sheets on pull out couch - beach sand all over - bedroom... More
