I am saddened to have to retract my former glowing review of this once-loved ocean-side motel, following our most recent stay there last week. We have considered Cliff House to be our favorite Pacific coast getaway for over 30 years. In spite of its down-market accommodations, the advantage of a splendid location right on the surf, its formerly excellent restaurant, and its reasonable rates have won the place many kudos from us and other guests over the years. However, our last visit (and I do mean "last") has discouraged us from ever staying there again. The management has slipped from casual to negligent; facilities that used to be kept in at least acceptable condition are now suffering from lack of any attention or upgrading. Our disappointment in the quality of the restaurant will be reviewed separately; suffice it to say we will never go back.
