I stayed only one night in early August. This is a small, quaint inn in a very quiet location along Patrick Point Road. Bob, the owner, is very personable and helpful regarding restaurants and things to do and see in the area. The room was very clean and comfortable. My only regret was not being able to stay longer in... More

My wife and I stayed in room 4 for six nights with our two kids. The room was great, with a little kitchen (which saved us a ton; we ate out only twice during our stay), a living room where the kids slept on a couple twins, a relatively large bathroom (with fantastic water pressure) and a very comfortable queen...

We selected this place based on tripadvisor reviews as a two night launching point for our visit to redwood natl park. We arrived about 5:30 at hotel. Bob met us. He is a unique talker. Pretty dated place. Room 2. Small, almost, but not quite musty smelling. Bob commented upon checking in that this place is "quiet " and I... More

Hello appalachiantrailer, Thank you for the review, and regret that that you were unable to hear The Sea Lions or the ocean waves during your stay; unfortunately, we have no control of that. We do hope everything else was good for you. We do not claim to be on the ocean side of the street, but if you Google Earth,... More

Sea Cliff Motel in Trinidad, CA has been one our best motel stays ever. Cozy, homey room, nice property to walk our dogs. Quiet and secluded. Friendly managers. It was a wonderful end to a good vacation. We would definitely stay there again.

We were visiting Redwoods national and state parks and wanted a simple place close to the parks. This location was ideal. Small mom and pop motel where service is excellent and everyone minds there own business. Rooms feel like cabins with redwood doors, trim and walls. Owners/hosts were very informative about restaurants, hiking, and general activities. Room was perfectly clean... More
