Seacliff is a small, unpretentious motel right off route 1 and right on the ocean. Our 2nd floor room was pleasant and roomy, with a high ceiling. Our window and balcony faced the ocean, and we could hear the ocean all the time! The staff was friendly and helpful. The motel is walking distance to a few shops, including a... More

It's all about the view. Looking out onto the bay into the ocean clear skies west facing full setting sun glistening off the water. Great hospitality and close by restaurants to walk to easily . Room has nice updated bath fixtures and big jet tub. Otherwise room a bit dated and funky bed covers and pictures more suited for a... More

The front desk staff were amazing, we reached the motel after the restaurant were closed, so they gave us fruits and granola bars to make sure we were not as famished throughout the night. Every room has a oceanic view and are very spacious for what the rates are. There isn't a need for AC in the rooms since there... More

When I told friends of mine in San Francisco that I was staying the weekend in Gualala, no-one had any idea where I was talking about. It seems few people go much further north on Hwy 1 than Jenner. Gualala is remote and it takes a strong stomach to get there. Yes, I mean stomach because of all the winding... More

This is a lovely property, well-maintained, with friendly welcoming staff. I had a second story room (worth the extra cost), with a vaulted ceiling, private balcony and stunning views of the ocean. I slept to the sound of the ocean on a comfortable king-sized bed. Enjoyed evening wine, morning coffee on the deck. Definitely want to return in the spring... More

Beautiful vaulted ceilings, in room spa, fireplace, private deck, combined with a stunning view. We'll be back. So friendly too. Clean. We motorcycled over to travel the coastline. About an hour from Mendocino and only 8 miles further to Fort Bragg. If you're traveling on 2 wheels try the Stewart Point Skaggs road over to Healdsburg. A lovely twisty road... More

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
