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

The biggest factor was our room was very dirty. the floors and bathroom disgusting. We had to wear flipflops and put down towels on the floor of the bathroom. The glasses left in the room to... More

This is a hidden gem for sure. The hotel grounds are immaculate and adorned with beautiful flowers everywhere. Open the windows and you can hear the sounds of the waves crashing and feel the ocean breeze. The room I chose had a kitchen stocked with plates, silverware, pots, pans, glasses and anything else you might need to prepare any meal.... More

This was our first time staying at this secret hideaway. The first thing when you walk up is the smell of all the flowers that are planted on the grounds. You are greeted by friendly hotel staff that are eager to answer any questions and to make sure you enjoy your stay. The hotel is small and quaint and has... More

We enjoy ourselves every time we stay here. We experience new places while taking walks from the inn. The staff is always pleasant and eager to please. The rooms are always very clean and comfortable. We never stay anywhere else anymore.

You can't beat the sound of the waves crashing in on the scenic cliffs, and the hotel is the perfect place to relax and watch a sunset or two. We spent two nights, and did what other guests were doing, enjoying a picnic, bbq or fire pit, with a bottle of wine and beers out on the scenic patio on... More

I would like to say this place is my absolute go-to hotel in San Diego! The view is perfect! Rooms were clean and grounds are very well groomed. The gardens were beautiful, you can tell there is much time and love put into taking care of the flowers. Outdoor seating was very comfortable and inviting (my favorite part). We would... More

This place is right on the cliff, It has amazing views, I have been travelling to the west coast for years and tried multiple places that advertise ocean views. There is nothing like this place that is on the Ocean, there is nothing that separate the hotel from the ocean, no street, no beach, no nothing, you will be right... 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
