This place has a great location and is a quaint little hotel right on the shoreline (although rocky so you can't easily get into the water). The view is incredible. Other than that, everything else was less than impressive, but it was a pretty decent price so I don't want to complain, but I'll state what we experienced. We got... More

I really, really wanted to like this place. I have driven by it many times and always wanted to stay there. I read other reviews, so I knew that the hotel was not going to be fancy and that it needed some updates. I rented a 2 bedroom suite on the pool level. I was told it was like a... More

We did not stay at the hotel. However, we celebrated our anniversary by having dinner at the on site restaurant and we were not disappointed. The service was impeccable, the salad, main course, and dessert were outstanding, and the view was breathtaking. We would highly recommend having a meal here! The hotel seemed really nice too! Thank you to the... More

I can't remember the last time I saw so many mis-representations from a Hotel. They list: Balcony-that's the wood rotted pathway to your room that makes you feel like you're going to fall thru (lawsuit waiting to happen) with string wired across to keep birds from hitting windows and pooping I gather. Patios-must be the cement area by pool. There... More

Stayed here one night as we wanted a spot on old Pacific Coast Highway 1 with views. The hotel is literally on a freeway (101) on one side and the edge of the Pacific Ocean on the back of the hotel. I really wanted to like this place but other than the views of the ocean it is just really... More

My husband and I have been coming to The Cliff House for a number of years. We love it! You can't beat the location- right on the beach. It is absolutely gorgeous. We have been here in all seasons and are always amazed at the views. We typically walk along the beach, going north from the hotel. It is so... More

My husband and i have been coming here for about 28 years now. It was the first place we stayed together and we always loved celebrating birthdays and anniversaries in the larger rooms with the huge windows. However, this last visit was a bit disappointing. Not so much because its looking a little ragged (we always accepted that as part... More

This was our special treat before we left the States to come home and I was searching for absolute beach front with a close experience with the sea. This hotel fulfilled my dreams. The hotel is right on the beach and has a large swimming pool in front, very private and all rooms have a sea view I think. Pure... More

The building has 3 floors. Entry is on the 2nd, at parking lot level, wheelchair accessible. Rooms are on the 2nd and 3rd. The breakfast room, restaurant and ice machine are on the 1st, along with the pool and extensive patios. There's no elevator, so the 3rd floor isn't handicapped accessible, but a handicapped entrance at the south end of... More
