“Never disappointed!”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

I continue to book friends and family here every time I have the opportunity - and even though I live a few blocks away, I end up spending a lot of time at the Inn because the property is so fantastic! Large groups have always been comfortable here -- if you're in town for a big event and have all sorts of smaller groups (people with or without kids, older relatives, etc.) of people to accommodate, this is the place! The manager, Gavin, takes such pride in the property -- it oozes out of him and makes each visit that much more enjoyable. What a gem for our little beach town.

Room Tip: I prefer the second floor on either side

Had the pleasure of spending two nights in this lovely inn. Nice comfy bed overlooking the beach, close to some good bars and fun shops. Try OB's Smoothie bar absolutely amazing breakfast drinks, shots of wheatgrass and delicious Acai berries. Receptionist was very pleasant, room well serviced. Good waves too!

Found this place via reviews on Tripadvisor and couldn't have been happier with our choice. Although it wasn't slap bang in the centre of San Diego, the location was perfect for our short visit to the city. Only a short taxi ride into town, but we preferred being by the sea. There are also lots of things to see and do on the doorstep (seaworld very close, as well as a worthwhile drive along the cliffs to the nearby national park area).
Our room was a bit on the small side, but the bed was large and very comfortable and the decor was contemporary and very clean.
By far the best thing, however, was sitting on the deck watching the incredible sunsets - spectacular!

Living in San Diego is treasure enough, however we do get creative from time to time and enjoy a "night away" in our very own backyard. The Inn at Sunset Cliffs was an excellent place to celebrate our "stay-cation."
We had arrived very close to midnight and were met with a welcoming smile (no yawns) at the front desk. The hotel is Santorini-esque with its blue and white exterior, beautiful manicured garden, pool and two decks overlooking the ocean. If you could get any closer, you would actually be swimming.

Insert sex, drugs and rock and roll....oh wait that's Vegas..... The Inn is cozy, clean and an excellent place to relax and enjoy the, well you know what I am going to say, sunset. The room we had was located in the back of the hotel and felt as if we had our own bungalow. They have recently renovated their rooms and did a wonderful job while paying attention to detail. Although, my only complaint, and I blame them not me, the shelves are located right above the toilet.....and my face soap and lotion was sacrificed to the toilet gods. I imagine any other functioning human being that is not, well me, will not have this problem.
Overall, I would absolutely recommend this property to visitors and residents alike, there are great views, quiet rooms, walking distance to restaurants and beach shops. We really enjoyed our stay and looking forward to our next visit, although we plan to upgrade to the president's suite, which I hear has a jacuzzi that overlooks the ocean.

I recently stayed at the Inn at Sunset Cliffs with my two young sons, my nephew and my parents. The property was is a great location, with beautiful views of the Ocean. They had everything we needed; it was clean and within minutes of Sea World (which was our main reason for the visit). The staff was accommodating, we had the pleasure to meet the manager Gavin and several other employees during our stay and they were all very friendly. We know where we plan to stay on our next trip back to San Diego!

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
