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 -... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We had a wonderful room with a fireplace, a picture window giving us a fabulous view of the sand, sea, and soaring birds, and a large Jacuzzi bathtub! My husband's favorite amenity, or should I say furnishings, were the two Barcalounger-style chairs right by the window, where we could sit and watch the surf. The night manager, Kathy, couldn't have... More

We stayed here for one night on our trip down the coast. Our room was spacious and comfortable. The jacuzzi tub felt great after several days of bike riding down the coast.

This is our third stay at Seacliff. Rooms are spacious, with microwave and frig. Staff is very friendly and most accommodating. View of the ocean and cove from every room. This is on the bluff walk and in a banana belt area. Just returned a few days ago and normally don't go in July due to coastal fog, but sun... More
