We stayed here just one night as a side trip on our Napa wine tasting vacation, and loved it. We were 3 couples and all had a wonderful time. Bill, the owner, was quick with great advise on where to dine and what to do. He set it up so we could have wine after dinner at the fire pit... More

I am a travel agent and just had clients' return from a trip to northern California. They described room 5 of this place as, "decrepit, old, smelly, kitchen drawers that wouldn't open, floor with dog hairs and circular stains on the carpet which could only mean dog urine." We had booked three nights there but they only stayed for one.... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. It has a B&B kind of feel: rustic and some mismatched furniture with very nice grounds. We moved to three different rooms (because we booked late), and they were all just fine. Numbers 2 and 3 (with no kitchenette) suited us well. It's very quiet and peaceful. As a special bonus...

I really loved staying here for 3 days. After hiking in the Redwoods I felt very comfortable coming back to Sea Cliff. So glad I picked this place. It made traveling alone so easy. With a fire pit outside its super easy to make new friends. Or you can stay in your room if you want. This place isn't fancy... More

The hotel is small, very clean, and very comfortable, with a cute resident dog - The Coconut - and a fun, quirky owner :). The rooms aren't cookie-cutter hotel rooms. There's wood paneling, nice sheets, a down comforter, and nice fluffy towels. The prices are really reasonable for the area. We've thoroughly enjoyed our two nights here.

I booked this location for the simple proximity to the Redwoods in all directions, but I and my handicapped mother fell in love with this hidden nook of a gem secreted just far enough amongst the trees west of Highway 101 to have the forest deaden the traffic sound and a few minutes north of all the conveniences of Trinidad...
