We made reservations on line. Not sure what we'd find we were a little cautious, but it was fabulous. The room was older, very clean and comfortable. The view of the ocean was breath taking. The staff was extremely helpful, caring and personable. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

If you are looking for a chain hotel, this place is not for you. But if you would like to stay some where peaceful with amazing views, then this is the place. With the Pacific right at your finger tips this place was very relaxing and peaceful. I saw guys and gals surfing and boogie boarding in the area. When... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. We stayed for 2 nights. I chose the place specifically for its setting (somewhere private, next to the water). Hearing the ocean waves in the evening when going to bed and in the morning when waking up was pretty amazing. The best part was opening up the curtains every morning and seeing the sun... More

So, as I am not unbiased about this location as my wife and I have been staying here since we started dating over 20 years ago (married 10 years now).... If you are looking for fancy, stay away.... if your looking for great amenities, not your place.... but if your looking for the best view and location for a reasonable... More

My husband and I were so looking forward to staying here for the night. We had some friends that told us about this place and that The Cliff House was running a special called the January Wave Special. They had a wonderful stay here and really enjoyed the restaurant. We made reservations to stay Monday, Jan. 27th and then we... More

Near 80 degree temperatures on the Pacific Coast in January sent us looking for someplace new near the beach. In exploring the coastline on Google Earth just north of Ventura, I spotted the Cliff House Inn, located right on the ocean. After reading reviews on Trip Advisor, and viewing the photos, we decided to check it out. Because of road... More

This was our second stay at the Cliff House Inn. The first time, we splurged on a deluxe room that had a huge window facing the ocean, but this time we chose a standard room and were not disappointed, as all rooms have ocean views. Our first evening, we were even able to see dolphins swim by! Both nights, we... More

I am a Californian and my wedded lover (wed to me) is from Austin, TX. He does not have much experience with the Pacific Ocean. I remembered this little place that I had come to in the past which allows the first over night experience to be wonderful all the way around. I found that it was just as good... More

My mother was in town and we were planning on the Grand Canyon...unfortunately the govt shut down and so did the Grand Canyon! The silver lining was that after living in the area for over 5 years, I finally checked out the Cliff House Inn. What a great surprise! It was like Hawaii only 30 minutes from home. My mother...

The motel is okay for a couple of nights. It is stuck between the highway and the ocean. The view is beautiful on one side but the rooms are very noisy because of the road. Also because my window didn't close at all and had to make do. Food at the restaurant is amazingly good and you can see dolphins... More
