Out of respect for our guests who may be sensitive to pets and to allow easy access outside for you and your furry friend, our pet-friendly rooms are located on our first floor only. So, when you make your reservations, please let us know that you are bringing your dog so we can provide the right accommodations. All dog-friendly rooms must be booked over the phone with one of our reservations specialists at 805.773.5000. There are a limited number of pet-friendly rooms and suites and we cannot allow pets to check in if they are not confirmed in these rooms.

Please be aware, if you choose to leave your dog unattended in the room, it must be crated. The Cliffs Resort reserves the right to assess noise fees to a room in the event that a dog is disturbing other guests (barking, etc). The dog may be removed from the room if we are not able to reach the owner.

There is a nightly $50 fee (maximum of $150 per stay) for the deep cleaning of your room upon departure. The Cliffs Resort is excited to make a difference by donating a portion of this pet fee to Guide Dogs for the Blind. Started in 1942 with a dog named Blondie, this school has helped fund the guide dog program for blind people across the West Coast. Now with two campuses, Guide Dogs for the Blind assists in breeding and training dogs, then works to match partners with the dogs and support their relationships for a lifetime. With everything from retraining to veterinary expenses, a successful guide dog is a big investment, and we are happy to be a part of such a meaningful organization. For more information, please visit and learn about this amazing group of people and dogs!

Pet-friendly rooms are for dogs only, please, and must be made by phone. For reservations, please call 800.826.7827.

Restrictions may apply and pet-friendly rooms are subject to availability.

“From the very first moment we arrived, every staff member treated us AND our dog as welcome guests. The dog bed and dog bowls in the room were more than large enough, even for our St. Bernard. We were allowed to take her with us to the restaurant, at one of the outdoor tables. Water bowls were readily available, and if we wanted, we could even order something from the doggy menu for our furry companion.” – pjmorrison 

“I went on a getaway trip alone (well with my dog), to write, visit the beach, just relax. This was the perfect spot. I splurged and got a King suite, they had to put me on the ground floor because I had a dog with me, but it was a great room, beautiful bathroom, beyond comfortable bed, great small patio overlooking the ocean, even on the ground floor. And they have a special for travelers with pets, perfect, treated my furry friend like a guest too.” – gypsytravellerca

“The hotel has been just recently renovated and the improvements are ongoing. If you have pets bring them along! The hotel has first rate accommodations for both four legged family members and you. They even have a pet menu with gourmet selections… what else can you ask for?” – frostedflakes1
