Room is not modern but then it is not meant to be a modern hotel. It is clean and comfortable and staff helpful. Had dinner in Shoals restaurant which was delicious and sat outside with spectacular view of the ocean. Nice continental breakfast in the morning.

This hotel has a great view, an awesome restaurant and a nice pool. The rooms were so so. It kind of seems like it's a Motel 6 in an awesome location. The continental breakfast was just that, a continental breakfast. My husband I actually drove down the street to get something else. The rooms were quiet. Parking was hard.

This morning it was high tide and the ocean waves were crashing 50 feet from my window! No coffee pot. Bring your own. Yes there is coffee at breakfast – a continental breakfast. Beware of the old door locks. If you turn it too far, the door remains unlocked when you leave the room. Some rooms have little refrigerators. Good...

The location is stellar- all rooms face the ocean- on the oceanside, you can sit and enjoy your own private beach- it is not a large place- I think 24 rooms- The room was CLEAN-thankfully which means a lot to me- but worn around all the edges- my door had a piece of wood on it- just replace the door-...

We stayed here for one night in November during our pacific coast highway trip. Doesn't look much from the outside and its very close to the freeway but WOW the views on the other side make this so worthwhile. The room we had was on the second floor, it was basic but clean and well equipped for what we needed...

We stayed here because of being close to the water. Our room was on the second floor with a great view. The room had been recently remodeled and was very clean, however it is still an older hotel. The staff were very friendly. The pool was great. The breakfast was delicious. This is a great hotel to stay if you...

Our second visit here was even better. We stayed in unit 25, the only one on the bottom floor, has a private patio and two rooms and only a bit more than the rest. Right on the ocean, meaning within feet!!

If you are expecting fancy... stay away. This is a basic hotel/motel with small rooms and not a lot of frills. It has the best view and sounds in the world (IMO). Only 24 rooms, right on the ocean. TV, iffy (but you don't come here to watch TV), internet even worse than TV (but who cares).... Great staff and...

I love the Cliff House Inn. It was built in the 40's so it is not the fancy oceanfront hotel, but the beds are very comfortable, the view from the room (No. 6) was spectacular and the rooms are clean. You can hear the ocean all night and it is very peaceful. Has a great pool, comfortable lounge chairs the...
