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

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

We generally believe that online reviews are a means for consumers to communicate with other consumers - and we rarely comment UNLESS the review is so off-base as to be factually untrue. In this circumstance, this is a disgruntled guest who was asked to leave after smuggling in their dog to a room that we guarantee to be allergy-free. We... More

This is a wonderful gem of a place & Moss Beach is out of the bustle of Half Moon Bay. Staff was friendly & you felt at home. Seems like new owners are adding even more extra touches- new downstairs coffee bar, etc. Our room was a bit stuffy as it was upstairs & a warm day- but we left... More

We were looking for somewhere (after a Napa trip) near the SF airport but on the coast to spend a few nights celebrating our 40th anniversary. This place is brilliant! Quiet, delicious breakfast, beautiful gardens, well appointed and very near some spectacular scenery to walk around and see the "wildlife". We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, chatting with the new owners... More

Ok granted the place is quiet; I mean very quiet. No complaints there. However, it was also very hot inside the room and a ceiling fan would have been wonderful. No A/C so forget about that if you stay here. Also forget about the wine and hors d' oeuvres. First, it is not something they let you know about when... More

The Seal Cove Inn is so good that I almost don't want to post a review. It is in a very quiet area of Moss Beach and that is one of the things I loved most about it. It was literally silent at night. I slept like a baby. The hotel itself looks like a French chateau was plopped down... More
