Amazing, as soon as we arrived the staff were helpful and friendly, our room was large and comfortable with fireplace and jetted bath (with ocean view if you opened the window). Huge recliner leather chairs in which to watch the ocean through a huge window, also a little balcony if you wished to catch some air. they even provide binoculars...

We arrived at night, and the desk clerk was very helpful. She was an hour from the end of her day/shift, and still very upbeat and friendly. Being nighttime, other than the sounds of the ocean, not much in the way of a view. But the giant room, large jacuzzi tub and comfy fire place, combined with a spotless bathroom...

The view is Amazing. I was able to kick back in a recliner and watch a winter storm blow thru during our stay, which was kind of "bucket list" for me. The gas fireplace kept the room warm, even with the small windows open (so we could hear the ocean). The two person, jetted tub was a real treat too....

This motel is an odd mix of budget and luxury accommodations. The building appearance and furnishings are average but the beds are comfortable and the view is unparalleled. Rooms include your own fireplace and a beautiful jetted tub. You have to ask for bathrobes but they gladly give them to you to use. There is no beach access here -...

This place was one of the high lights of our road trip. The hotel is set back from the street and there are only 4 units per building so it is very quiet. We were on the bottom floor. The ocean view was beautiful. The room itself is not fancy but is very clean, has a fire place, balcony, robes...

We had the top floor ocean view for one night......the room was lovely two big leather reclining chairs, To sit and watch the ocean all night! Wish we had at least another night here, the room is one of the best we have stayed in! Lovely private balcony, if you get the chance to stay here .....don't pass it by.

What can I say. The most amazing view from your room sitting in recliners with your feet up looking at the ocean and the stars at night. The frig and microwave and coffee maker is a nice touch. The 2nd floor is the best even though you need to cart your own luggage. The Seacliff is within walking distance to...

You won't find any 5-star hotels in Gualala, but that's not why you come here. You come for the views, the sound of the surf, and the uncrowded and unhurried pace. And whenever we need our ocean "fix" we stay at the Seacliff. Friendly, helpful staff. Each room has large windows with white-water views, king bed, and private balcony. Ask...

I recently stayed here with my girlfriend for a weekend. I made my reservation in July. When I called the day of to tell the staff that I would be arriving late, the staff told me that my room had been double booked. The staff resolved this by comping both nights for the inconvenience. The staff made sure that my...
