Everyone is correct the property is beautifully situated right on the ocean and the restraunt will never disappoint. However me and my new bride booked our suite in December 2014 for our March wedding. The day after our wedding we're hanging out at the hotel when someone decides to recarpet the two rooms next to ours. The crew placed all... More

All of the previous reviews are quite accurate. A bit outdated, but clean; beautiful setting; small inn; small rooms, really small bathroom and shower area; no hair dryers, balcony overlooking the ocean (well, not really a private balcony, but a walk-way to the rooms, open the windows and listen to the ocean below. Nice sitting area on the lawn and... More

First let me say the reviews are right, it IS old & the rooms could use a little updating. The walls are thin. Theres nothing like listening to the people above/next to your room having a marathon romp. We were in room 11, I say it was next door, my husband said it was one of the rooms above. Either... More

We love Cliffhouse Inn. We go several times a year. it's no the Ritz, but it's an awesome getaway for couples and the food is awesome. The view cannnot be beat. Dan at the front desk goes out of his way to accomodate any requests and is always super friendly. See you in July !!!

Perfect location, beautiful views and rest, but I cannot give 5 stars for location. Bad news one, no hot water, all morning, tepid water, could barely take a shower. Internet dead most of the morning, and the staff could not help untl late morning when management got there. But would I go again? yep.

I think most of the previous reviews are reasonably accurate. We stayed three nights and would stay again, Don't expect the 4 Seasons at these prices (Dec weekend special) but the location was great. Service and food in the restaurant was good; nice complimentary breakfast. Staff was particularly helpful and nice. Rooms and common areas were a bit "long in... More

we really loved it. several couples stayed here with us. The rooms are okay. The setting is magnificent. Restaurant was pretty good too. One caveat, you can only access the hotel while southbound on US 101,so if you overshoot it circle around and try again.

Stayed 2 nights. Rec'd room 17 very outdated furniture and not very clean. ASK!! for a newer room. By looking at the website it LOOKS perfect, the pool was nice, the view is fantastic! Breathtaking! I was not aware that a restaurant is open on the patio next to the pool that is provided and it is crowded all the... More
