“Best place EVER!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

My husband and I have been staying there for 5 yrs. We were married there 4 yrs ago in August. We love it. this year we were there for almost 5 wks and it was just like being home. Gavin and staff are like family and were fabulous. Clean rooms and excellent service everyday! But nothing is better than the view right outside your door and beautiful gardens in the courtyard. Love waking up to the sounds of the waves each morning. We always bring bikes because everything is in biking distance and rarely use our car to go anywhere. Can't wait for next summer, each year is more amazing! LOVE IT!!!!

We have been staying at The Cliffs for about five years now. We consider it to be our second home. We loved it so much we got married there two years ago and our whole family comes back now to enjoy the pristine views, spotless rooms, and excellent service. Gavin and his crew really know what they are doing. They always go above and beyond for us and make us feel like family there. Definitely beats a bustling large chain hotel! Just a few steps out of your room and you have one of the most amazing views of the cliffs. Can't wait to go back and would never dream of staying anywhere else!

This is our third time at the Inn and love it, and the staff. Hotel grounds are beautifully landscaped, great deck areas to sit and chat, play games, eat, or watch a sunset. Rooms are clean and LOVE the double headed showers big enough for two. Biking/walking distance to tons of restaurants and beach. Other family members also stay here and it's like a family retreat! So much fun.

The hotel is in a beautiful location. Easy to get to restaurants in Ocean Beach and other sights in San Diego. While the kids swam we sat and admired the view of the Pacific. The suite was spacious. Only complaint was our room was near the front of the hotel and the street noise was a little loud.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street front.

Great hotel with the best view in Sand Diego. Drove from las Vegas that morning and had the best arrival. The gentleman at the time in the office let us check in early with was so great. He was so helpful with information and gave us so much time too. He ran circles around us to give us the roll away beds and extra sheets that we needed. You don't wait for anything there. Thank you sunset cliffs for being there. Very clean hotel!!!!

Cozy, beautiful little rooms. Nice showers, comfy beds! Gorgeous gardens, colorful flowers everywhere!! Big beautiful wooden deck with tons of nice wooden chairs, couches, rocking chairs and tables, right on the ocean! Sat outside early one morning and watched the dolphins swim and some big seals on the rocks, just laying in the sun. So relaxing and peaceful. At night after being at the beach all day, on the deck they have a big fire pit. Went and got some wood and a couple bottles of wine (across the street at a little market), had an amazing evening! If you want to, you can go and get some food to grill, they have a gas grill out on the deck, saw some people grilling steaks and shrimp, then ate on the big deck, overlooking the ocean! Inside the little office they have all kinds of coffees and teas, to take out and relax. Our kids got us three days for our 25th wedding anniversary and we will absolutely go back again, and again!

We chose to stay here during our recent trip to San Diego and we are very glad we did!! I wanted to stay on the water with view and access to the ocean and this is the perfect place for both!! We drove to Ocean Beach for local breakfast and dinner and into San Diego for the specific activites we booked. Just fantastic!!! Great place to stay and we will be back!!!

Room Tip: Book a upper room with ocean view...you will be glad you did!!!

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
