More of an upscale motel with a lobby located in two different buildings. Room was ok, the view was great. Exterior could use a facelift. The breakfast that was included wasn't very good and really not necessary. The two story building does not have an elevator, so you'll be

Very nice and comfortable hotel... but watch for credit card fraud. Right on the ocean. Great ocean views. Beautiful grounds behind hotel. Short drive for beach access. Rooms are clean and comfortable with helpful amenities... frig, microwave, etc.

I recently spent 2 nights in August at the shore cliff inn this past year, and it was no problem booking the oceanfront room. I actually got lucky and made reservations less than a month in advance and still received the desired room, so I think you should have no problem. Honestly, every room has a view of the ocean, but the ocean front rooms just don’t have any obstructions as opposed to having to look over the pool.

No, it is on a very high cliff full of amazing sea birds. A quick drive down the coast and there is a large beach.

"All rooms have a sea view, bonus..."
"Get an ocean-view room."
