Booked to stay for 2 nights without high expectations at all. Enjoyed our 2 night stay at Seal Cove Inn. Very cozy and homey... a great break from daily busy life. Place is very clean, quiet, staff are very nice. Stacy was very pleasant. Discovering this place makes me come back & stay often in Half Moon Bay. Breakfast is just right... what we needed. The fact that we have a choice to have breakfast in the room is SUPER!!! Thank you again for a great getaway.

The inn is located in the woods near the beach. The walking trail to the grove and the view looking down towards the beach, and the seals, is wonderful. Great staff and room, the breakfast was fabulous. Pricey but a lovely getaway.

Found online, we stayed one night here. Actually stayed in the room in the pic. Really clean! Moss beach bluff just steps away. Bikes available(2?), self serv coffee, soda, wine, frige down the hall, gas fireplaces, NO A/C if too warm; Kevin brought a fan for us, and explained the meteorology of the area to us. Was still warm in our room. LIGHT, but pretty, breakfast included, fresh OJ; cottontails and many birds in the garden. No restaurant/kitchen open for more than breakfast. Bring a corkscrew. Restaurants located just south of Moss Beach. If the entire experience was brought to the next level and the owners spent more time on the "attractiveness to travelers" of the place, the value would be better realized. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, but many caveats as noted in these reviews need to go away with the new owners. More bikes, maybe electric assist bikes, actual garden, so much potential.

Beautiful place, great room, complimentary wine 5-6pm, breakfast, coffee, snacks and beverages! Great value for such a busy and expensive time of year! Very nice staff. The grounds around it and ocean are breath taking! There are seals at low tide. Would stay again 100%

For a weekend getaway, this place was perfect. Loved the warm welcome cookies & coffee/tea, the garden with the flowers and the cosy fireplace in our room. We could chose to have breakfast served in our room. Also, the beach, hiking trails in the forest and fabulous restaurants are close by. We will be back soon!!!
