Cliff House Inn - nr Santa Barbara

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 21, 2014

Ok it's not in Santa Barbara at all but this is where we stayed as a base to explore the area. It's located right on the Highway 5 miles or so from Santa Barbara to the north and at bit further, about 18 miles to Ventura to the south.

We arrived here at 5pm and thought that the view was spectacular, straight out onto the ocean. There are some rooms with a picture window and these would be excellent choices. Other rooms have a motel style walkway in front of them. There is swimming pool that was heated when we were there but we did not go in it, mainly due to modesty as in you are in full view of everybody.
Buffet breakfast is included, nothing heated but a good supply of fruit, cereals, bread and muffins. The breakfast needed to be restocked and sometimes we had to find staff to do the deed but hey, no big deal. You can sit outside to eat your breakfast although everyday we watched the dreaded seagulls try to sneak in to take a nibble, just don't leave your food unattended.

Rooms are standard although we were pleased to find the 4 bed room had a separate bedroom rather than to adjacent doubles. It's not the most modern of places but we enjoyed it all the same. The restaurant appeared to be popular but we did not eat there.

It's close to the road and the access to and from the highway resembles an aircraft carrier style acceleration and deceleration at times but if that is a real problem then I would think you were not confident of driving in California at all.

All in all a good stay here, very comfortable, great views once the sea mist has gone and staff friendly. Note you cannot get down to the beach from this place but then again no where do they say you can either. We noted loads of other places that were much more expensive in this part of the world

PS if you want photos with the sun out, wait until the afternoon once the mist has gone.
