This was our second time staying at this hotel located right on the water. It can be a bit pricey but worth the money. The rooms are not that big, but with the views, it is well worth it. They have a restaurant on premise and while we haven't eaten there, the food looks great. If you are traveling in...

Been here several times, the food is fantastic. Below is a pic of our desserts, tiramisu and cappuccino ice cream. Very relaxing, lovely view. They've changed the access from the fwy, you can now only get there from the N, driving south. Well worth it!

We've driven by this place dozens of times and so on a recent trip back home, we decided to stay for one night. The property and rooms are definitely dated, but you can't beat the location and the view. They have a nice pool that is just steps from the ocean (no beach) and there are plenty of lounge chairs...

The Cliff House is older, quaint & great for getting out of the heat and out of the city. The rooms are adequate, clean not TOO small. At night, you can open the window and listen to the ocean as you go to sleep! The is no A/C but an open window on the opposite side of the room offers...

There was a graduation party on the grounds that lasted until midnight. They were very loud. In the morning stomping feet in the room above provided an early wake up . The view was very nice as was the pool but we did not have use of it due to the party

Set in a charming cove, this unpretentious motor lodge has outstanding views. We stayed in the one suite, room 12, and it is worth every penny. We could lay in bed and see the moon rise over the sea. Magnificent. Don't expect luxury. It's perfect just the way it is.
