Reviewed 29 September 2016

We stayed at the Seal Cove in for our anniversary. Beautiful, cozy, quiet stay. Close to the ocean with walks to the beach. The building is a 10 room B&B. Our room included a fireplace, and a view of the garden. The bed and furnishings were beautiful. Elegant stay overall.

We planned this trip for our 20th wedding anniversary, and it fulfilled and exceeded our expectations. The Inn is beautiful, the staff warm and helpful and our room both spacious and cozy at the same time. We loved the balcony and the fireplace. Friends of ours had called and arranged for champagne to be left in our room, and Stacey...

The Seal Cove Inn is the Jewel of Halfmoon Bay. Friendly and helpful staff. Just a great place to relax and in the early evening the staff find just the perfect time to offer you a glass of wine. The rooms are spacious and have a feeling of home. This not a full service hotel but more a guesthouse at...

The inn itself is gorgeous, our room was luxurious, and the breakfast was wonderful. The staff is outstanding and is very attentive. Our room had patio access to the lovely gardens out back. Just steps from the Inn, a short easy walking trail leads to the beach where my wife and I explored the tide pools. We loved our stay.

Coming from the Eastern time zone, we got up our first morning quite early (and hungry). After getting complimentary coffee and before taking a walk at 7am, my husband asked if we could have our breakfast (yogurt and pastries) at 8 instead of 8:30. The kitchen associate said that we could. We were not served until almost 8:30 after my...

Hello Tammy043, Thank you for your feedback. I believe it would help to clarify - it is not a policy, our dining room does not actually open until 8:30 AM as we explain at each check in and in all four pre-stay communications we send. We happily asked the kitchen staff to accommodate as early a breakfast as possible when...

I really enjoyed this place. It is cozy and the staff has lots of details with you. It is the best included breakfast I have had in two months traveling in the US. The hotel is just minutes away from the beach but you can't see the beach due to the trees. There is fresh and free coffee at all...

Adorable accommodations and excellent service. Close to hiking and biking trails, yet tucked away to feel the peace and beauty of the San Mateo Coast. We received personalized service the moment we walked into the front door. I felt like I was staying in someone's home. Very relaxing and comfortable.
