Spent a week here with my family and we love it! Super friendly staff 24 hours a day. Perfect for everyone with walking distance to the beach if you don't want to let the staff drive you down there. It's 10 min driving to Sea World and short driving distance to Fashion alley and the best shopping in town. And... More

I enjoyed my stay at The Inn at Sunset Cliffs because the staff was so pleasant and helpful and the location is perfect. The ocean is the only sound I could hear at night and the community outdoor patio with a panoramic ocean view was the perfect place to enjoy the sunset!

I loved being right on the ocean. I could hear the waves from my room at night. My room was spacious and comfy. The courtyard was beautiful with all the lovely, colorful flowers. It was too chilly to use the pool but it looked very inviting. Hotel staff were very welcoming and patiently answered every question. It was only a... More

I was hear for Day 1 of a Domestic Violence Survivor Retreat. This lovely hotel graciously gave everyone in the retreat a room discount, so it was affordable for us survivors. They were so kind, and the setting was so healing. You could hear the ocean from your room, and there is a running trail that goes for miles on... More

I had the opportunity to stay at this amazing little hotel with a group of domestic violence survivors for a retreat together. Not only was the view beautiful but the staff was friendly and completely took care of all of us. On top of that we received a special rate because of our cause! How wonderful that we were treated...

Quaint inn located right on the beach in a quiet neighborhood. The views off their decks are stunning. Located close to downtown Ocean Beach. My room (2 rooms and a living room) was roomy and the bathroom looked to be remodeled. Very friendly staff and the property in a whole was very clean. They even offer yoga on certain days!

My first time staying here was truly an experience long in the making. A San Diego native but currently residing in the bay area; I have passed this gem many a times as I or with others would make our way to the Sunset Cliffs area to catch those classic California Sunsets. The location of the Inn is perfect in... More

A wonderfully comfortable inn located in quaint Ocean Beach, convenient to airport, downtown and seaside parks. Staff was very accommodating and helpful during our week long stay. There is limited parking on site and near great walking paths in Sunset Park along the shoreline cliffs. We stayed in a two bedroom suite with a full kitchen.

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 completed the hotel remodel in 2011, and the lower terrace in 2016 thus creating a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere to accommodate any San Diego visitor. Almost a brand new hotel and brand new oceanfront patio! 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
