We planned two days in Trinidad so we could explore the Redwoods and Sea Cliff was the perfect way station. We stayed in the small and comfy Room #3 and thoroughly enjoyed our visiit... 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

We were met at the door by Mr. Cody, a Shepherd mix of a certain age. He and our pup hit it off right away. Bob, the owner was friendly and helpful. Our room was... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Sea Cliff Motel on a recent road trip through the Redwoods. The price was right and the room was very quiet and clean. The owners were friendly and even went out of their way to mail a library book that was inadvertently left behind.
