Nice enough room with a view. Owner and staff hardly ever there. Inflexible and late breakfast although they will pack a couple of things for you. When we took breakfast it was 'unusual' small and no choice. We payed what must be a premium price for a 5 nights stay. Not good value.

Mr. Martlew, I am surprised at such a poor review. We thought you had such a nice time here. You never expressed any dissatisfaction during your visit. We prefer to address them at the time of your stay versus online. We received another and typical 5 star review the very same day as this one. It is hard to imagine... More

This was our second visit. We love this luxury b & b. Don't be put off by the location in Moss landing. It is right on the edge of one of the most important nature reserves in the U.S. and very close to Monterey. This is a great place for peace, tranquility and most of all nature. The boathouse has...

What a great getaway. People use that term a lot, but this Bed and Breakfast actually makes you feel like it's true. Just up the coast from Monterey, we were amazed at how fantastic the room was. Make sure you ask for one of the rooms in the Boathouse because they look out onto the waterway and the bird sanctuary.... More

Not much to do in Moss Landing but made the best of it as I was just passing through... My room was wonderful, clean, comfortable, and so quiet that nothing woke me up. Just nearby was a good restaurant called Haute Enchilada, kinda of Peruvian food, and I found where the locals gather for Karioke at night (just behind the... More

Rooms seem smaller than the pictures but very comfortable with fast WiFi. We stayed 2 nights. The bedding was so luxurious that I had to look it up online and will be ordering for my own bed at home! We loved the tub which filled with hot water without turning cold. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, really quite impressive. One... More

The term 'hidden gem' gets thrown around a lot, however this qualifies as one of those places. I normally drove past Moss Landing not giving it much thought, but staying here for several days allows one to go whale watching (we saw MANY Humpbacked whales, dolphins and sea otters), travel the Elkhorn Slough if you are into bird-watching, walk the...

We stayed on the waterfront and the view is so quiet and peaceful with chairs to sit in at the windows. Also a charming fireplace. And the two little oatmeal cookies in the room were delicious--only wanted a couple more! The room was clean with an almost too large shower; only did not like the shower curtain that allowed water... More

Thank you for your review. I do so love the view from the boathouse rooms and our big comfy beds. However, I was sorry to hear your breakfast portions were sparse. Normally we serve healthy portions. We do encourage our guests to get seconds or even thirds if they are still hungry. Hopefully this was a one-off event and when... More

I stayed here on a Living Social deal that included an Elkhorn Slough safari. Both the hotel and safari were great. We stayed in one of the boathouse rooms. The theme was nautical including the bed being mounted on a boat trailer. The bed was comfy, the shower huge and the ambiance retreat like. The best part was looking out... More

My husband and I throughly enjoyed our stay at Captains Inn. The sunset from the High Sea room at sunset was spectacular and the ambiance unique. Every detail was taken into account and the service was impeccable.

This is the best place if you're interested in the slough and its wildlife, as the rooms in the boathouse feature huge windows directly overlooking the wetland. You can spot birds and sea directly from the bed! It's expensive but it's worth the extra money especially if you're a bird-watcher. We had the (upstairs) Sail-Away room, which is spacious and...
