The Seal Cove Inn is a beautiful 10-room inn in a quiet, nature setting. Our room was quite large and the bed extremely comfortable. In the corner of the room was a fireplace - a nice touch for cool evenings. The patio door overlooked a lovely garden, and we enjoyed watching rabbits and quails frolic there. We were pleasantly surprised...

There's little doubt that the Seal Cove Inn offers a fantastic setting. Although the "ocean views" are hard to see from the inn itself, they're only a short walk away, down to a the beach cove that really is a seal habitat. The garden is well-kept, and the adjoining woods make an ideal location for a wedding. Which is exactly...

My wife and I took a quick weekend trip over to the coast. She found Seal Cove Inn online and liked the look and we were familiar with the location. We live in the central valley and were hoping to get out of the heat. The pics and reviews from their website do not do this place justice. It is...

My wife and I went for a little weekender to the Seal Cove Inn in Half Moon Bay and absolutely loved it. What a wonderful and peaceful setting with very nice gardens surrounding the back of the building. The staff was so friendly to give us a little tour and set us up with real firewood for our little fireplace....

A lovely inn, a decent value for the money. Clean, spacious room looking out over a beautiful garden - we awoke to watch the quail and hummingbirds skittering about. Didn't use the fireplace, but we will next time! The breakfast was healthful and tasty. Free bottle of wine a nice touch. Within walking distance are lovely tide pools, easy trails,...

Spent the first four days of our holiday at Seal Cove Inn and it was wonderful! After our long flight from UK it was short drive and we were soon immersed in the peace and quiet of the inn. The breakfasts are excellent and the beds so comfortable. We wandered the gardens and down to Seal Cove and just relaxed...

We loved this place. They have really beautiful gardens at the back, and our room was huge. We liked the way they didn't clutter it up with furniture, but it had everything you need, including a desk, a sofa and a fireplace, while still seeming spacious - and a view of the gardens. We made use of the fireplace too,...

We made a last-minute reservation and stayed here with our two small children. The staff was extremely friendly and accomodating and the kids were given adorable trundle beds with Disney sheets that they just loved! The interior of the resort is clean and charming and the location is just a very short walk to the beach. All in all, this...

You can't beat the location and nearby ocean view walks under the cypress trees. As you drive up to the Inn it looks like something out of a Conde Nast 10 best Inns of the world - quite breath taking. The outdoor patio and garden area look like something from an Italian Villa. The lobby and adjacent lounge are very...
