Stayed for two nights in August in a second floor. The room was very large, clean and well appointed. The balcony was a great place to enjoy a morning coffee with a lovely view over the ocean only yards away. Good wi fi for free too.

We were on a road trip down the PCH & stayed our last night here. The motel is actually 4 buildings with 2 units downstairs & 2 units upstairs each. We stayed upstairs & i would recommend upstairs. All the buildings are along the bluff, with each unit having large windows & a balcony facing the ocean. It was beautiful!... More

Just returned from our 3rd trip to Seacliff on the Bluff. Gualala is a great location to explore the Northern California coast as you are about midway between Fort Bragg and Bodega Bay, making for great exploring on day trips up and down the coast. We stayed downstairs on this trip, but would recommend splurging the extra bucks for an... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Seacliff on the Bluff for our babymoon over a long weekend. We had an awesome stay at this adorable seaside hotel! Each room has a romantic fireplace and a jacuzzi tub, along with a porch/balcony with beautiful ocean views. It's a short drive and a hike to the actual beach (since the... More

We were on a long road trip and this place was the best we'd stayed in by far! Great view of the ocean, loved the: bed, bath, fireplace, balcony, staff, location, EVERYTHING!! The vaulted ceilings were a nice touch! Even down to the chocolates and chilled cider- we felt so refreshed after staying there. In the AM at check out,... More

Just passing through on an adventure up the PCH. I completely agree with all the reviews. Staff: great. Views: great. Value: great. Clean and roomy. The large windows were great to view the moonlight reflecting on the ocean.

This is a very nice motel. I hate calling it a motel because it is so nice. It is very clean, you get sparkling cider when you arrive, and the whirlpool in the bath is excellent. We come here about once a year and it is the closest to the water with the best view.

I was on business in Gualala back in April and was booked into the Seacliff. Not my choice but I was so glad to be "stuck" here for a few days. The reception staff were amazing and efficient and the rooms all seem to have the most perfect view over the Pacific Ocean below. Every night I sat on my... More

This place has it all--- great view, gas fireplace, private patio. Not especially close to great dining places (except perhaps St. Orres), but all-around a very good value. Just remember that a second floor room has more privacy; and expect a little seagull poop on the windows. (Don't feed the seagulls!)

Wonderful location right on the bluff. Walked into our second floor room, but down our bags and looked out of the window - lo and behold two whales not 100m offshore. Wish we could have stayed more than the one night and disappointed it was a bit too cold to sit out on our deck. Staff friendly and helpful (I... More
