Very quiet and relaxing hotel

Posted 14-May-2015
Pros: Great location and very relaxing.
Cons: Can't think of anything
Location: There are nice walking, biking trails right out the door of the hotel that takes you to the coastline and beach. Half Moon Bay is a short drive.
We really enjoyed this hotel. It was well situated near the ocean and in some coastal hills with beautiful trees and flowers. The hotel staff was very pleasant and the rooms were clean and cozy. If you are looking for a nice quiet getaway this is the place.

Quiet and Peaceful Location

Posted 24-Mar-2015
Pros: The Location, The Property and the staff were great.
Cons: I only wish we had a DVR to record a few shows when we were out.
Location: See Seals and sea life in the reef at low tide. Dinner at Pasta Moon ( The Lasagna - My wife said), has ruined all other Lasagna that we will ever eat
The Property is quite nice. Well taken care of and it appears to not be that old. It's only a 10 room Inn, so not too crowded. The Rear Garden was beautiful to look out our window at. We were able to take a short hike down to the coral reefs each evening at low tide and enjoyed that fact that we did not even have to move our car. The Breakfast was a lighter breakfast but great pastries and homemade granola. The room we were in was the largest room and was great. This was for our 30th anniversary and was a great weekend with getting to restaurants was just 10-15 minutes away. This a great place to unwind.

Wonderful cottage getaway

Posted 23-Mar-2015 on Hotels
The staff was supper nice/friendly. They walked with us to show us the best way to walk to the marina & to the Moss Beach Distillery for dinner that night. Speaking of the walk to dinner; the staff offered to make reservation for us in advance. Breakfast was wonderful the next morning. Even though we did not partake in the wine that they offered that night we did get to enjoy seating out back enjoying the view.

Hello Jeanette, We’re thrilled you so fully enjoyed your visit with us. We love hearing when our team goes above and beyond to take exceptional care of our guests, thank you. We’ll be sure to pass your praise along to our entire team; we know it will generate many smiles. A mouthwatering breakfast is the perfect way to kick off a day on the seaside, we’re glad you loved it. We may be a bit biased, but any evening spent relaxing in our garden, while soaking in the views, is an unforgettable memory being created. We hope to welcome you back soon for another coastal getaway.

disreputable owners

Posted 08-Dec-2014 on Hotels
i remember when google allowed you to choose your favorite place (in order to ensure that you wouldn't superfluous rank everything 5 stars). i wish a service existed where i could rank my least favorite place since 1 star is too generous. the location is nice, but the hosts are focused on profit rather than reputable service. i recall that the place is under the 3rd set of owners so i'm wondering if the 5 stars reviews are historical or contrived. save yourself the trouble and stay away!

Cozy getaway

Posted 24-Oct-2014
A beautiful inn in a beautiful location. You can walk to the beach and the Moss Beach Distillery (closed, alas, when I arrived at 8:00 pm). Breakfast is included, and was good but a little eccentric, consisting as it did of three all-starch courses: a raspberry pastry, followed by crepes, followed by a croissant. Still, overall, a good place to stay with friendly, helpful staff.

We stayed two nights with another couple and had a wonderful time. The Inn is amazing and the location is beautiful. The walks to the ocean will be remembered forever.

Warm, accomodating, totally recommended!

Posted 08-Oct-2014
Seal Cove Inn went above and beyond to make sure my husband and I got exactly what we wanted on our short vacation. Breakfast was delicious, staff was friendly and helpful, and when there was a misunderstanding with our room, the staff worked to make sure we were 100% satisfied and comfortable. I fully recommend Seal Cove Inn - it's worth every last cent!
