We drove up the coast to stay for a few days to explore the area beaches and towns. The beautiful secluded spot has a private cabin feel (knotty pine walls and pretty earth toned carpet, oak antique furniture) with coast views (including whales spouting offshore) and is easily reached by good roads. We found we had our own attached garage... More

My wife and I had been traveling across the country, staying at various places and we decided we wanted to stay in Trinidad for a bit. After checking out all the local places to stay we decided on the Sea Cliff. The rooms were quaint and beautiful, competitively priced, and they allowed us to bring our cat too!The owners were...

Bob was excellent and went above and beyond what I expected from a motel owner. Due to an emergency, I had to contact my parents who were staying here. I was unable to get ahold of them, so I called the motel. Although I woke him up at 1 in the morning, Bob was very polite and was able to... More

We stayed here for three nights in late June of 2015. Part of the reason I waited to write my review was that I initially felt a bit guilty -- the proprietor and his wife were certainly very welcoming and chatty. Before I begin, let me state that my family frequently stays in smaller/off-the-beaten-path places, and I know not to... More

We absolutely loved these sweet little cabins!! They are going to be our new long- weekend getaway. Bob, the proprietor, was so helpful with directions to beaches,etc. The cabin was clean and cozy. We can't wait to go back!!

My wife and I stayed at the Sea Cliff Motel and we had a pleasant experience. The room was cozy and the bed was comfortable. They are also pet friendly, so you can bring your fuzzy family members too. This motel is in a good location and really easy to get to the beaches, parks or Arcata/ Eureka.

My best friend and I were on a roadtrip from Seattle to Phoenix and just came through here. It was like reviews had said... quiet, across the street from the oceas, a little dated but who cares! If you are visiting that area and want an awesome little place to go either North or South from and explore the Redwood... More

We read several reviews and thought this place would be much different than it was. We had envisioned it being on a hillside overlooking the ocean, with breath taking views and sea lions, when, in fact, it is tucked up in the forest on the opposite side from the sea, and we didn't even hear the ocean. Guess we should... More

Trinidad is a small town,approx 300 plus people. Hence, not many accommodation choices. Bob, our host, was so friendly, very helpful and genuinely wanted us to enjoy our stay. Our room was very small, ie no chair. It was clean. Seemed tired. The flannel sheets were covered with little balls, indicating, much use. Pillows seemed small. the towels are threadbare.... More
