friendly staff, and great view.

Only steps to the Pacific Ocean, with beautiful views from your room. The only down fall is they charge 70.00 if you lose your key the need to update that part to keyless entry.

Fairly nice room, two streets away from ocean.

Posted Aug 28, 2017 on Hotels
The room was fairly nice. It needs updating, which we were told will happen next year. The staff was friendly and helpful with ideas on what to do, as well as driving directions. Breakfast was basic. The makings for s'mores were provided each evening as the third floor balcony had a fire pit. We enjoyed meeting other guests there. I expected we would be given a "view" room, but only about one-quarter of the ocean was seen from our room which was situated just behind the lobby. There was a bit of noise. The response to inquiry to move to a higher floor was that it would entail an increase in the room rate.

We are sorry you did not have a good experience. In the future if you decide to stay with us again, we will be more than happy to see if there are any other rooms available. We also would like you to know we are doing a full renovation at the end of 2018 and hope you will be back after the renovations.

Unique and fun hotel!

Posted Aug 10, 2017 on Hotels
Cardiff by the Sea Lodge is a unique Hotel. It has themed rooms. Our room was the Sante Fe room. It was spacious and had a gas fireplace and a view of the distant beach/ocean. Be careful the shower - it has slippery and sloped tile - the shower was the only "negative" I can think of. We loved the roof top with it's amazing views, fire pit and hot tub!! :)) The continental breakfast and coffee were nice -- nothing fancy however it gives you a little something to start your day if you don't want to go out for breakfast. I enjoyed the front garden seating area with my morning coffee watching the birds, the ocean view, and the beautiful flowers/trees/plantings. The staff was friendly and helpful. Cardiff Lodge is nice for a romantic get-away or any relaxing visit to this sea-side community. We will stay here again.
