This inn is very quiet; views of lagoon stretch of waterway. We could NOT hear the ocean even though it was a day with big waves. Staff super friendly. Breakfast 8:30-9:30. Our bed was on a boat trailer; so VERY high. Shore bird sightings galore; great white egret etc.

We stayed here on a weekend stay-cation: close to home and like going someplace far away. We had an ocean view room that came with a Jacuzzi tub big enough for two and huge wall-size windows looking out into the Monterey Bay. That said, this place was amazingly private and we felt right at home. The decor was cool nautical... More

We booked this hotel on our way to Carmel, kind of in a hurry, but were not at all dissapointed with our choice ! We stayed in the dolphin decorated room, the "Sanctuary" one. The bed was extremely confortable, and the room had a fire that made us feel so cosy. Unfortunatelly, it was cloudy and grey that day so... More

We fell in love with this charming bed and breakfast instantly. We met and chatted with the owner, who told us that the property was 100 years old. He recently refitted the place but preserved the charm. Our room was comfortable whilst our friends' room overlooked the beach. We watched the sunset and was amazed. The breakfast was simply delicious.... More

Pros: A great place close to the water, close to a few restaurants yet still very quiet, charming, has the relaxing element, comfortable sheets, appetizing breakfast, welcoming staff Cons: Check in time is limited but was not a big deal to us. Could only check in from 4-6 pM. There is a ton of creaking when you walk through the... More

Best place to relax and get away. We had a room with soaking tub overlooking the marine sanctuary, I highly recommend the sail boat room. We saw sea otters, heron, egrets, storks, harbor seals and many others! Staff is attentive and is relaxed..what u expect from a b&b! 👍🏼

Captain's Inn is a quaint and historical hideaway which comfortably frees you from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Rose, the lady at the front desk, was very accommodating at the Captain's Inn. She gave us a tour of the inn and b&b, providing tidbits of history along the way.

I was dubious about staying at Moss Landing while attending the Rennsport V reunion at Laguna Seca. The Captains Inn was a great place to stay and we enjoyed the quality rooms and quiet surroundings. Local restaurants were fine one very close.

If you're going to do nature explorations in Elkhorn Slough or Monterey Bay, this is an unbeatable location. The walk to the boat dock was five minutes and the inn was generous enough to let us leave our car in their parking lot for the day while we were out on a boat for whale watching.
