I had to cancel my first attempt to stay here at the last minute. The staff could not have been more accommodating - applying my funds to a future visit. Beautiful, comfortable rooms with every amenity. Great location for hiking, dining, and the beach. I can't say enough about the attentive service and the fresh, innovative food. The evening wine...

We had to cancel our visit. (It would have been our second trip here.) The cancellation policy on our reservation says we MUST get a cancellation number from the inn keeper or the cancellation is not valid. When I asked the innkeeper over the phone for one, he argued with me that it was unnecessary. I read him the document... More

Have stayed here a number of times over the past 10 years. Everything is beautiful and serene without being overdone -- grounds, public areas, rooms. Great owner and staff, good wine at wine hour, wonderful breakfast. A great place to relax, read, unwind.

Beautiful, classy Inn. Friendly, attentive staff. Quiet, serene surroundings. Delicious espresso and even better breakfast. Bed was very comfortable and the gas fireplace was nice and warm. Can't wait to get away here again!

My boyfriend and I stayed at this adorable inn this past weekend. From the first moment we walked, we felt welcomed by the friendly staff. We were shown to our beautiful suite where we were able to enjoy the quiet environment with the beautiful view from our balcony...ultimate relaxation. Being from the Silicon Valley, that is very hard to come... More

Seal Cove Inn at Moss Beach is a wonderful 10 room bed and breakfast that is more like a hotel then a house. The staff are delightful and accommodating, and they offer breakfast with your stay. They also offer wine and appetizers in the late afternoons. The grounds and gardens are well tended to and it's clean. The front desk... More

I hate to write a negative review of this place, but my experiences have led to that. A couple of hours before check out, housekeeping entered our room while we were inside. While it was an honest mistake, this was frustrating because: 1. the do not disturb sign was on the door 2. we had not checked out, and it... More

Dear Andrew, You told us several times that you would be leaving early, and we even packed you a breakfast to go. Given that you requested an early checkout and you left your door unlocked, the housekeeper thought the room had been vacated. We're sorry to hear this incident impacted your stay, especially given how much you seemed to be... More

Before even entering the Inn, the lavender-filled garden and the quaint view of the inn itself set the perfect stage for a relaxing getaway. The Inn is under the care of a small but attentive team. Everyone was welcoming and accommodating while still allowing for privacy. Enjoying the delicious breakfast prepared by the hostess herself, Kelley Dayan, followed by a... More

My girlfriends and I came here for a short weekend getaway. First off, the location is outstanding. Right on the Fitzgerald Marine Preserve, you feel like you're in the French Countryside on the California Coast. Jane checked us in and was professional, friendly and made us feel incredibly welcome. She informed us of the complementary breakfast (three corse meal) and... More
