Great view, excellent restaurant

Would recommend Fri, Jul 10, 2015
Cliff House was right off the highway so it was a good stop over on our trip up the coast. The restaurant in the hotel is amazing! The hotel itself is fine. Nothing special.

Stunning views, comfortable snooze.

There's nothing like sleeping to the sound of the ocean. Especially being on a big comfortable bed. PROS: All the rooms face the ocean with the beach being about 100 feet away. If you open the window, you even get sea breeze in your room for free. Our room (#22) had a big, king sized bed that was very comfortable with clean sheets and soft, very warm blankets that let you sleep with the window open without getting cold. The toiletry kit provided by the hotel was of good quality. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. CONS: The room is VERY basic, aged and a little run down (but clean). If you're looking for any kind of luxury, find it somewhere else. The TV is from the 1980's, the volume on it would go from barely audible at max to insanity-nightmare-loud without notice. We had to figure out how to watch tv, having to work 2 remotes and the tv set itself. it was overly complicated. The bathroom was clean but tiny, old and run down. The framing around the ceiling light was missing revealing a gaping hole into the space above. The walls in the bathroom had dents and holes in it, the shower was barely big enough for an adult, the shower handle was broken and difficult to set to a comfortable water temperature. With all its faults, and even though we felt the upkeep was a bit on the negligent, we would stay here again. With a little TLC, this place could be legendary.

Attractions

For nature lovers only. Take the ferry out of Oxnard to the Channel Islands for a day hike or stay a couple nights camping. It's a very unique and seldom visited place. absolutely beautiful.

relaxing weekend

Would recommend Mon, Oct 24, 2011
being on the ocean saved this place. there was no in room coffee, no hair dryer. The curtains had wear holes in them in addition, it was no benefit to book thru you. the prices were the same for clients off the street. dining experience there was above average.

Shopping hint

proximity to santa barbara harbor and old town shopping was good.
