I'll start off by saying that the views are stupendous. Breathtaking in fact and if the rooms were better maintained, this would be a true gem. Unfortunately the quality of the rooms greatly detracts from the overall enjoyment of this motel. I'm not a fussy travelor and like funky settings but this was funky in a not pleasant way. We...

We loved our two night stay at The Inn at Sunset Cliffs in mid-August. The colors (bright blue, white trim, abundance of flowers) drew us in, and the ocean views held us. The rooms are simple but sufficient, the staff helpful, and the location can't be beat. The grounds are well cared for and the property is spotless. Ocean Beach... More

What a wonderful place! It's quiet and very quaint! What a neat place to stay! The ocean is at your doorstep. We had a great view from our living room. There's not a better place to stay. I totally fell in love with the Inn at Sunset Cliffs and can't wait to be back!

Outside of hotel and rooms a bit outdated but we had huge king ocean front suite on top floor and the views were amazing! Walked down nightly to sit on beach wall and watch sunset. Steps away from restaurants and bars and Shopping! Check in was fairly easy, small staff but friendly;)

Just spent a perfect anniversary weekend with my beautiful wife at The Inn at Sunset Cliffs. We travel to San Diego at least once every year since we have been together and the Inn is like our home away from home. The peace and serenity associated with your stay here makes relaxation a top priority as the rolling ocean waves... More

We have stayed at The Inn at Sunset Cliffs on multiple occasions. It is our number one pick every time we come to San Diego. This charming, quaint little Inn has it all. It sits right in the water with an absolutely amazing view of the sunset every night. The rooms are clean and comfortable with plenty of amenities. We... More

The room we were given was was on the lower level towards the front of the property and smelt of mildew, remnants of beer, urine and body odor. We mentioned it to the night manager who did not seemed concerned and offered no resolution. Being that it was close to 10 pm we were stuck and made the best of... More

We took a two-family trip to San Diego this past weekend and stayed at The Inn at Sunset Cliffs in a two-bedroom suite. It was a perfect set-up for two couples with one small child each. We could put the little ones to sleep in each of our rooms and then hang out in the common room as adults. The... More

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!

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
