Weekend of kayaking and whale watching here. The inn was perfect. Friendly, helpful staff. Walk to restaurants. Room overlooking the bay. The garden was splashed with nautical items that made it quite interesting. Breakfasts were creative, but a little small for those going out for an active day.

Thank you for the nice review. We pride ourselves on having a friendly, helpful staff, and our location to all attractions in the area. Our exterior decor reflects the harbor town that we reside in, and gives the feel of being just steps away from the ocean (which we are). We are sorry that you felt the portions were small,...

We stayed in the secondary building right on the slough. We were on the first floor in the most private room called Cast Away. The decor is very nautical, funky but fun. Our bed was on top of an old boat so we had to climb on a crate sized box to get in. It was actually nice as our...

We were three couples booked in for a 2 night stay. (7th & 8th September 2016)On arrival we were warmly greeted by Pam. The rooms were quaint, homely and extremely clean.

We were at MBARI in Moss Landing for a workshop and just spent 4 evenings at the Captain's Inn Bed & Breakfast. It was delightful, charming and refreshing, and within walking distance to the meeting, as well as several popular and excellent restaurants. Our group enjoyed quaint and comfortable accommodations with private baths, each uniquely decorated. The Inn's key staff,...

On the edge of the bird sanctuary our room looked straight out over it. The decoration was creative, our bed-frame was a boat trailer. There were lots of small details that made it special. There was a gas-log fire and also a proper heater. The shower was great and could take two persons at a time. The breakfast was superb....

Thank you Nickdeb1949 for the nice review. Sounds like that was the perfect room for you. All the rooms in our boathouse rooms have exquisite views of the sanctuary, done in a water theme, and have been decorated to match the views.

We stayed at the Captain's Inn in July and had a wonderful weekend enjoying our comfortable room, the beautiful location, and the hospitality offered by the Innkeeper. The breakfasts were outstanding. I highly recommend the Captain's Inn for a great getaway in a unique location.

Thank you for the nice review, its always great to hear that our guests have enjoyed their stay. Our location is unique, a small fishing town between Santa Cruz and Monterey. The laid back feeling of this town and our inn, is the best for that romantic getaway or weekend escape. We hope to see you again sometime. The Crew

We had a wonderful stay at the Captain's Inn B & B at Moss Landing. My husband and I will definitely be back.

This lovely inn was perfect for our mini get away. I told my husband I wanted to have our anniversary dinner at the Whole Enchilada and surprised him with a night's stay at the Captain's Inn. We had huge windows facing the Bay and wetlands with an incredible sundown. It's a wonderful place to relax and peacefully unwind!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
If you are looking for a romantic and cozy getaway, we are the place. In the evening, you can capture the beautiful sunsets from your room in the Boathouse or on one of the 2 decks. The waterfront view is breathtaking. There is always an amazing array of wildlife including sea otters, birds, harbor seals and wild turkeys nearby. You can take a brisk walk on the local sandy beach or take a relaxing stroll through our little community. Almost everything in our community is within a short walking distance. We are located in a very peaceful and relaxing setting. Away from the hustle and bustle of the nearby cities. We are centrally located between Monterey and Santa Cruz, 1 block off Hwy 1. ... more   less
