Sea Cliff House Motel

Traveller (59)
Room & Suite (21)
Pool & Beach (6)


The Sea Cliff House Motel is a beachfront property that has been under the same ownership for over 30 years. We renovated the 3rd floor of our main house building in 2012 adding 2 new suites! We now have 3 luxury suites on our property ... the Grand Suite, the Penthouse Suite and the Honeymoon Suite. Our property also has kitchenette units, Jacuzzi rooms and of course, ocean view rooms that will take your breath away. We are a beachfront property offering a seasonal outdoor heated swimming pool for the entire family (children & adults) to enjoy and we offer a seasonal outdoor hot tub spa for adults (18 years of age and over). Bring your hamburgers and hot dogs because the grills are located poolside for your convenience. All rooms have a mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker along with free Wi-Fi and nationwide calling. The suites and kitchenettes are fully appointed ... just bring your clothing and food.

We stayed at the Sea Cliff House last night. Although it was off season, there were several guests at the motel yet we didn't hear a sound. The motel is on the beach, the room was actually a suite with a kitchenette and separate bedroom. The bed was very comfortable and more

I choose the sea cliff due to the positive reviews & close proximity to the beach. I made reservations for two nights Monday & Tuesday. My expectations were high, but once I arrived I was disappointed. Check in staff member wasn’t friendly at all. I didn’t feel welcomed. I was

The guestrooms, suites, and entire property of the Sea Cliff House are regularly maintained with meticulous attention to detail. And while our beach house style and sea inspired motif may not always appeal to the tastes of those who prefer the typical business standard interior of corporate chain establishments ... there isn't any aspect of the Sea Cliff House property that is battered, broken or outdated. Our objective is to provide a distinctive, charming, and serene "home away from home" experience against an inimitable ocean backdrop. In addition, although heavy traffic can affect the performance of any WI-FI system occasionally during peak times, the consensus from most of our guests has been that the updates that we've made to our network have been favorable. Still, it doesn't make us happy to hear that any guest is unhappy with their stay for any reason. Therefore, this review will be forwarded to management.

Came up to visit daughter at UNE for the long weekend. The motel is very quaint and nostalgic. Right on the beach, clean and has a pool. Easy directions and close to the school. I recommend staying here if your looking for a throw back era motel. If your into glitz and

My daughters and I just had a really nice time at the Sea Cliff House. Very friendly staff, accommodating and helpful. The room was quite clean and comfortable (and I am picky about beds and comfort). The room was one of the basic ones--it was cute, had a bedroom in the back,

We stayed there during Labor Day and the day after. The room was ok. Small and outdated. But clean. Jacuzzi room which was all jacuzzi and not much table space or sink space for my wife to put stuff. Parking was good. The beach access and pool were also awesome. The deck/patio

The Sea Cliff House takes great pride in the family and child friendly environment that we have provided for over 30 years with multiple generations of annual returning families. For health and safety reasons due to the high temperature of the hot tub ... we have a strict policy prohibiting children under the age of 18 from entering, which is posted off and online for all prospective and booked guests to see, including upon a large sign at the hot tub to avoid this type of confusion. However, our swimming pool maintains an average heated temperature of 83 degrees Fahrenheit and is spacious enough for all of the children to enjoy. Our establishment is an oceanfront beach house property with a relaxing "home away from home" setting. While we offer an array of modern features and amenities including daily housekeeping services ... we do not have a kitchen on premises, therefore we cannot provide meals. However, there are a number of year round locations in the area with breakfast options, as well as lunch and dinner selections plus several open stores with available ice for those who require larger amounts for coolers, etc. Coffee makers are in each guestroom or suite with caffeine and caffeine-free coffee to ensure our guests can enjoy a nicely brewed cup each day. Additionally, regarding the unruly guests mentioned by the reviewer ... we have a zero tolerance regulation against any violations of motel policies, combative or illegal behavior, harassment of any kind, lewd or lascivious acts, or any other disruptive conduct toward or at the expense of any other guests and staff. We stand firmly behind this policy and we will not hesitate to ask a problematic guest to leave the property immediately, to maintain the integrity of our family friendly atmosphere and to preserve the peaceful enjoyment of our other guests. We're never happy to hear about a dissatisfied guest for any reason and we're sorry that you did not enjoy your stay. Your comments will be forwarded to management.

It is .8 miles, flat and direct but a stroller would probably be good. Enjoy OOB!

Are the grills gas or charcoal?
Hello and thank you for your inquiry. I am the public relations manager for the Sea Cliff House. In answer to your question ... our grills are fueled by gas. The grills are a convenient alternative to going out when you just want to stay in beach attire and hang out by the pool or if you don't want to spend too much money going to restaurants every night.

Are pets allowed?
Thank you for your question. I'm sorry, but no ... we do not allow guests to bring their pets onto the Sea Cliff House property. While we do understand that our furry friends are valued members of the family, this has been a standing policy at our motel for many years. Our establishment is not set-up for pet-designated amenities or accommodations and without the appropriate provisions, containment, and capacity ... we don't want to risk any possible conflicts between incompatible or spirited pets. If you are able to make other arrangements for your pet(s), please give us a call and we'll be happy to tell you about our guestroom and luxury suite options, as well as any current special promotions, check the availability for your desired visit, and answer any other questions that you may have. We look forward to hearing from you!

If the conference were at Sea Cliff House you would be better off staying someplace else. At $250.00 a night (lodging plus loss of your deposit) is it worth the risk?
