Location is phenomenal. Great place to leave it all behind. No TV in the guest room was a welcomed change. We loved the fireplace and panoramic views from our room. Restaurant staff was extremely friendly.

Felt like we were on a retreat in a harmonious environment----lots of sitting, eating, reading, walking. Loved no distractions of TV and radio. Saw a seal pup being born on Shell Beach, a high point experience of our trip. I can't envision a more beautiful place.

Our stay was a Christmas gift to my husband (and me!). The weather was perfect, staff was very friendly and the complimentary breakfast offered anything from a full, delicious menu, nice touch. My only comment is that the two weddings' dinner was pretty close quarters to dining guests. It didn't seem to affect our service but I did feel a... More

A great stay with very friendly staff and great walks in the area - early April and we saw abundant wildlife: Whales, sharks, seals, cranes, vultures, pelicans, deer, rabbits etc. The room was very comfortable with a great view and a fireplace. Loved it.

Customer service excellant, although at check-in clerk had problem finding on computer that we had paid already for 2 nights. He researched it and came to our room next day, to notify us that error was found. Food was wonderful and I could eat the cinnamon walnut french toast every am. I especially liked Sylvia, the morning waitress. Every room... More

Very nice lodge/hotel. Beautiful views from the lodge and nice area to walk down to the beach and around. Loved the rooms! I would suggest this place if you are heading up or down the coast. I can't out for only a day or two and found that the drive was very curvy and location s bit secluded from any... More

The food was amazing! The clam chowder was one of the best ever, Kale salad was well done and suggested wine was terrific. I had both a very enjoyable breakfast & dinner. Walking along coast was a welcomed activity, in addition to whale sightings

My roll away bed had wire springs sticking out and the remaining springs worn and just under the sheet. There was no mattress pad on the rollaway. The food in the dining room was nearly inedible and the service was friendly but sloppy and poor, three people asking us for drink orders, confused that we had been asked, one waitress... More

I've traveled annually to SeaRanch for many years but this was my first stay at the perfectly positioned Lodge. Although a hotel, it has managed to keep a low key SeaRanch vibe with the emphasis on the spectacular coastline. We had a great experience enhance by perfect spring weather, the best food "in town", and pods of migrating humpback whales.... More
