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, with Sea World just a few minutes drive. Originally built in the 1950's, we have completed the hotel remodel in 2017, thus creating a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere to accommodate any San Diego visitor. 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. Sea World is just a few minutes from us! 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...

This place is amazing! The room was very nice. We loved having the option to book the room with a separate bedroom and kitchen like a small apartment. The location is incredible and we loved eating while watching the ocean waves which we also could hear all night long! Thank you!

This quaint little hotel was a great find. Ocean views are spectacular. patio and pool over looks the ocean. Clean and quiet. My only negatives are they could have some heaters on the patio for cool evenings and mornings. We will visit again.

The location of this place is incredible. Leaving the window open and being able to hear the surf in the morning was just amazing. The rooms are a huge plus too. If you are the type that likes to cook on vacation to save some extra money they have suits with kitchens! If you come to San Diego and want to have a well priced ocean front place to stay this is it.

Love this little jewel. Hubby and I have stayed many times and always enjoy our time! We have stayed in the one bedroom as well as the studio on the ocean with floor to ceiling windows. My best friend was married here and the setting was beautiful! Great as all guests can stay on property. I highly recommend!!

Recently my partner and I had the pleasure of staying at the Inn. From the four poster bed and wrap around windows (OH WHAT A VIEW), to the crashing of the waves and the spacious decks, it could not have been a more perfect setting to just relax! I especially loved the set up of the room and the island feel it gave me every time I entered. Rooms were very clean and well supplied with everything one needs for an extended stay. The staff was very helpful and extremely articulate on any and all aspects of the surrounding area such as attractions, restaurants, or areas to take a walk. The sunsets are some of the best I have ever seen, weather from our room or the deck. An EXTRA SPECIAL shout out to Gavin (manager) for making sure we felt as if we were the only guests there, although the Inn was quite full. Also for telling us about the BEST Mexican food I have ever eaten!!! All of the staff at the Inn were quite helpful, with a special Thank you to AJ for all he did to make our stay that much more pleasant. WE WILL BE BACK VERY SOON!!
