The Shore Cliff Lodge met and exceeded our expectations. Our room (315), while not a full ocean view, provided a north-westerly view of the rugged cliffs and cove as well as ample ocean. The staff was friendly and helpful, the room was fresh and clean and the overall property was picturesque and well maintained. An added plus is the Ventana...

Went to the Central California Coast for a change of scenery, did not disappoint. Lovely grounds, relaxing atmosphere, great staff. Rooms were nicely decorated and not at all cramped. Enjoyed the balcony.

This is a great place to stay. Good service, friendly people, but mostly the view is unbeatable. Ocean front rooms are incredible. Sunsets are beautiful with 180 degree views. Plus, walk to the best steak house I have been too, McClintock's. Guiseppe's (Italian) is also a 20 minute walk.

We booked an "ocean front" room. It was located on the second floor and the view was awesome. All of the rooms have balconies ,so we enjoyed coffee out there in the morning. The sound of the waves put us to sleep quickly.
