The Shore Cliff Hotel is a fantastic place to rest and relax and enjoy a gorgeous view of the central coast. Our room was well-appointed, spacious, and immaculately clean. We particularly appreciated the commodious bathroom with its double sinks and large counter space.

View, room, staff and location were all wonderful. Loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the surf. Our favorite place to stay. Always hate to leave. Looking forward to a return visit in the near future.

We liked everything about this hotel, esp. our balcony that overlooked the pool and the ocean, and faced the gorgeous sunsets. It would be nice to have beach access from the hotel property - stairs down the cliff, like some other properties - and we look forward to completion

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.

Is there walking access to the beach? Thank you
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.
