The hotel is overpriced, rooms old and shabby. Would never stay again. One of the rooms smelled. Not an inviting atmosphere. I give it a one star rating. For the price, a breakfast should have been provided. TV didn't work and was never fixed or changed out as promised.

The Pacific Ocean ... up close... my room was no more the 100 feet from the waves breaking/crashing onto the cliffs and walls below! Wonderful staff... beautiful/blooming courtyard. Very nice outdoor heated pool. I will absolutely staay there again next trip to CA.

If you are looking for a fancy hotel with a room on the 25th floor overlooking the ocean, this is not the place for you. If you want a room close to the ocean with great views and sunsets to remember and if you want to actually HEAR the ocean at night, this is a great place to stay. We...

They only thing this hotel has going for it is location and view. The staff were nice as well but room had a lot to be desired. TVs in both rooms had issues; remote didn't work properly either. Attended a wedding on property that was so dark you could barely see the bride and groom.

Luke, at the front desk was extremely nice and helpful....The waves crashing on the rocks were enjoyable to see and hear and the sunsets are gorgeous. Very relaxing and close to ocean beach . Will stay here again in future.

I'll start off by saying that the views are stupendous. Breathtaking in fact and if the rooms were better maintained, this would be a true gem. Unfortunately the quality of the rooms greatly detracts from the overall enjoyment of this motel. I'm not a fussy travelor and like funky settings but this was funky in a not pleasant way. We...

We loved our two night stay at The Inn at Sunset Cliffs in mid-August. The colors (bright blue, white trim, abundance of flowers) drew us in, and the ocean views held us. The rooms are simple but sufficient, the staff helpful, and the location can't be beat. The grounds are well cared for and the property is spotless. Ocean Beach...

What a wonderful place! It's quiet and very quaint! What a neat place to stay! The ocean is at your doorstep. We had a great view from our living room. There's not a better place to stay. I totally fell in love with the Inn at Sunset Cliffs and can't wait to be back!

Outside of hotel and rooms a bit outdated but we had huge king ocean front suite on top floor and the views were amazing! Walked down nightly to sit on beach wall and watch sunset. Steps away from restaurants and bars and Shopping! Check in was fairly easy, small staff but friendly;)

Just spent a perfect anniversary weekend with my beautiful wife at The Inn at Sunset Cliffs. We travel to San Diego at least once every year since we have been together and the Inn is like our home away from home. The peace and serenity associated with your stay here makes relaxation a top priority as the rolling ocean waves...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to the Inn at Sunset Cliffs located in historical Point Loma, California. We are one of only a few San Diego hotels truly located on the Pacific Ocean, just steps away from Ocean Beach. Originally built in the 1950's, we have completed the hotel remodel in 2011, and the lower terrace in 2016 thus creating a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere to accommodate any San Diego visitor. Almost a brand new hotel and brand new oceanfront patio! No other San Diego hotel offers a view as breathtaking as from our spacious terrace overlooking the Cliffs, Ocean Beach and as far as La Jolla. The Inn at Sunset Cliffs is truly one of the only San Diego beach hotels that is actually a waterfront hotel. Oceanfront suites with the sea breeze just outside your door. Sunset Cliffs creates scenic atmospheres all year long, with million-dollar views everyday. Being a quiet privately owned San Diego hotel, we support our locals and want to help our community. San Diego Beaches are near, being just a few blocks away from us. Experience the great San Diego surfing with an awesome location to scope where to ride for your session just a few steps away from your room. Wake up to the sounds of the waves crashing onto our property. Look out at the Pacific Ocean to see the beauty San Diego has to offer. When you feel like relaxing, our two ocean view terraces allow you to view out over the horizon of the Pacific Ocean. Kick your feet up and let the waves take you away... ... more   less
