This place is such a gem! I love the setting- right on the water! You can't be any closer to the ocean, unless you are on a boat. Almost all the rooms are a little different, which is a nice change from the usual cookie-cutter layouts. The Presidential Suite has a tub for two with ocean view. I haven't stayed... More

The Inn at Sunset Cliffs was one of the best places I've stayed on any vacation. The location is perfect, with the ocean steps away. The best part about our stay is the intimate feeling you have when staying. It is not your typical large commercial hotel. You get to know the staff, which are extremely pleasant and happy to...

We took short to La Jolla, Sea World, Coronado and LegoLand. The staff was friendly and helpful. Grounds were beuatifull with rose gadens... More

I had heard great things about this place and decided to go for a few days. I will definitely go back. The staff is so accommodating and friendly. The pool area is stunning with the owner truly caring for the flowers around. The patio watching the sunsets every night was amazing. It is a great location so close to everything... More

Ive never felt like I had a second home. Since the first time I stayed at the Inn I have felt this way! Not your typical corporate hotel, this is what makes it great! Anyone for the manager to their gardner is top notch, extremely personable. Your room will make you feel right at home, no doubt. Fishing 20 steps... More

Don't get me wrong- this is a SUPERB location!! Location, Location, Location is what this hotel is about. The view is amazing, we sat on their rocking chairs for over an hour just drinking beer and it was great! The hotel is very cute. Downers- the rooms are small- the door and bed have about a foot inbetween. And in... More

If you are looking for all the frills and amenities of the Hilton, this is not the place for you. If you are looking for a charming place to stay that is right on the water (no beach) consider it. We had a large group, so had the opportunity to see various room types. The poolside queen is a little... More

The location is the best part of this hotel. On the cliffs in a quiet neighborhood. The hotel itself was passable.I'm told that it was recently remodeled, but I couldn't tell. It's basically a half step above a motel 6 on the water. My room was on the first floor (pool queen) closest to the water, so I had a... More

Stayed here to visit with some friends that live at Sunset Cliffs. My sister and I stayed in a two bedroom with a little living area. The furniture was a little dated but everything was clean. Refrigerator and microwave was very convenient. Great area to sit and watch the ocean... Very peaceful with absolutely beautiful flowers. The only thing I... More

We stayed here for a few nights with our family, including 2 kids (teen and tween), primarily because the views looked so beautiful online and also because the TV series, "Veronica Mars" was filmed here and we are big fans (was a nice surprise to the kids who realized it immediately upon our arrival). We stayed in the 2 bedroom... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Inn at Sunset Cliffs located in historical Point Loma, California. We are one of only a few San Diego hotels truly located on the Pacific Ocean, just steps away from Ocean Beach. Originally built in the 1950′s, we have RECENTLY COMPLETED REMODELING the 24 room inn thus creating a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere to accommodate any San Diego visitor. Almost a brand new hotel! No other San Diego hotel offers a view as breathtaking as from our spacious terrace overlooking the Cliffs, Ocean Beach and as far as La Jolla. The Inn at Sunset Cliffs is truly one of the only San Diego beach hotels that is actually a waterfront hotel. Oceanfront suites with the sea breeze just outside your door. Sunset Cliffs creates scenic atmospheres all year long, with million-dollar views everyday. Being a quiet privately owned San Diego hotel, we support our locals and want to help our community. San Diego Beaches are near, being just a few blocks away from us. Experience the great San Diego surfing with an awesome location to scope where to ride for your session just a few steps away from your room. Wake up to the sounds of the waves crashing onto our property. Look out at the Pacific Ocean to see the beauty San Diego has to offer. When you feel like relaxing, our two ocean view terraces allow you to view out over the horizon of the Pacific Ocean. Kick your feet up and let the waves take you away… ... more   less
