... then climbed up again to about 4000ft through the most amazing rocky outcrop that I have seen the mountains were just like huge piles of big rocks.
We arrived at the hotel and settled in, the hotel is an old bank which has been converted to the hotel after a bit more shopping in the handy Westfield's shopping mall ( I can't believe how much we get ripped off in Australia for clothes ...
... with camera in hand composing my photo, and some knucklehead just walks directly in front of me (as in, quite literally within 5 feet of me) for his own photo. I stood there in silent disbelief for about two seconds, and decided he needed a little New York piece of my mind. "Ahem! Are you KIDDING me?? What the h*ll do I look like, the 300-lb invisible man here?? Are you REALLY that self-absorbed that you ...
... are fabulous (try the breakfast burrito with chorizo), but get there early. It is very popular and a line forms quickly. There is also a coffee place next to it if you only want coffee. After returning to our room, we quickly unpacked and went to Ralph's grocery store for snacks and beverage. Since there is a kitchenette in our room with a refrigerator, we can store yogurt, drinks, fruit, etc. easily. The rest of the afternoon was spent ...

We head for Balboa park in San Diego for some sunshine, fresh air and a wander. The park is huge and really cool. It has loads of museums, entertainment, and interesting buildings alongside the green space. We enjoy one street with lots of stands. Dylan chooses a model balloon from lots of options and the man makes it for him. He, of ...
... smaller sea-side towns are the best. They are un touched and beautiful. We wandered along the beach catching up and enjoying the sun, before driving round.. and round.. and round La Jolla to try and find the Seal Beach. Hundreds of Seals bathing in the sun shine right next to us, and protected nature area and lovely lovely walk.
Next on the tour was a drive up the coast line, and lunch at Pacific Coast Grill in Cardiff by the sea. Never did ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Inn at Sunset Cliffs San Diego
We took the advice of other reviewers and stayed at the Inn in early February 2005. How much you enjoy your stay may depend greatly on which room you pick.
We stayed at the Inn at Sunset Cliffs for five days from January 1 through 6, 2005. The location is simply spectacular, with an incredible view from the inn's private patio overlooking the Pacific Ocean. San Diego's downtown is about 10 minutes away via the freeway. The place was probably built in the late '40's or early 50's, but it's in impeccable condition, and the room was quite comfortable. It had a small color tv with basic cable, as well as a small fridge and microwave. I would recommend, however, that you book a suite for an extended stay, since there isn't any lobby or common area, per se, and the room can get a little claustrophobic. There is a nice (if small) outdoor heated pool located in the beautiful courtyard that's just a few steps away from any guest room. We swam in it on January 2, which was quite a treat for us New Englanders. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and complimentary coffee and the local paper are provided each day. On weekends a "continental plus" breakfast that includes waffles made to order is provided, as well. I own a bed and breakfast in Maine, so I know what to look for when it comes to such things as cleanliness and professionalism. The Inn at Sunset Cliffs hits all the marks.
We stayed in the one-bedroom kitchen suite November 25th thru 29th. Step into a living room that has a sofa bed. Charming little kitchen fully furnished including coffee makings. Bathroom has double shower head and very roomy. Bedroom is in the back with queen-size bed. T.V. in both living room and bedroom.
Really Lovely Hotel
We stayed at the Sunset Cliffs for two nights in November. The Sunset was recommended to us by friends who have stayed there before. We were not disappointed. We had a two bedroom suite, plenty of room. The views from the deck were wonderful. My husband and I sat on the rocking chairs and watched the sun set.
Very convenient location for Sea World, Gas Lamp and the Zoo. Also easy to reach Ocean Beach.
We would stay here again.
Stay There Please!
An unbelievable place! Absolutely fantastic. Extremely comfortable rooms with extremely comfortable beds. The grounds are so well maintained. The views are unbelievable. Stay here please. So worth your money.
All I can say is that this hotel is even better in person!!!
Stayed here April 11th to the 14th of this year. What they say on their web site is true and then some. Great views of the ocean and coast line.
The grounds are well maintained with many flowering plants. The suites are large and comfortable. In a nice residental area with a good sandwich shop and restaraut a block away. And the staff are great, helpful, pleasant and so nice. They made it a wonderful stay. Thanks again.
We recently stayed at the Inns at Sunset Cliffs in Ocean Beach, San Diego. It is located close to our son's apartment and we had seen good reviews at this site. It turned out to be quite a nice place. The location is excellent, right on the cliffs in Ocean Beach with beautiful views up and down the coast line. Our first room was in our price range, a little small, but perfectly fine for the two of us. It also had a refrigerator and microwave. The second room (which we had to move to because of advance bookings for the last night we were there) was much bigger (a bedroom, livingroom, kitchen, bathroom unit) and nicer but also much more expensive. Still, it was nice to be able to have our last breakfast with our son in the unit before we left San Diego. We would definitely stay there again.
Wow pretty much says it all. Fantastic might work,too. Very clean!!
Great ocean view..nice pool
When we were there last, the owner had 3 room suites with kitchens which worked out well for families and the fact eating establishments were a little distant. I believe the new owner is converting the suites and slowly getting rid of the kitchens which I feel is really too bad. The previous owner, Mr Garvie, kept the area clean including the pool area. Maybe you have more on this.
