Situated next to the quiet, scenic surroundings of Sutro Heights Park and Land's End, we are located away from the noisy downtown traffic and crowds, yet still in the city in a resort-like location. We are just a block up the hill from the historic Cliff House and a few steps further to miles of beach along Ocean Beach. Enjoy a wonderful breakfast or lunch at our own restaurant which serves all day and every day. Our spacious guest rooms, many of which have excellent park and ocean views, provide our guests with many amenities including free high-speed Wi-Fi , cable TVs, dual-line phones with voice mail, free locals calls, in-room iron/ironing boards, and hair dryers. Other hotel amenities incude complimentary but limited covered parking, a private patio with swimming pool, ping pong and badminton. All our guest roomsrooms are non-smoking and some with fireplaces. So if you are ready to try something different in San Francisco then consider us as your home away from home along San Francisco's ocean front.

First, my wife and I think the Seal Rock Inn is in the best location of any hotel in the SF Bay area - period. It's located right at Land's End and next to the Sutro Baths. It is a block from Ocean Beach and...More

I love hotels like this; practical, a little bit of flare, not overpriced, and charming. My husband and I were traveling with my younger brother, and it was a perfect 'somewhat private' separation that the laminate sliding wall provided. The room has everything you need:...More

We called in here en route to Lands End. We were welcomed by friendly staff and pleasant surroundings and, more importantly,a busy restaurant. We opted for the corner beef hash and Canadian bacon with eggs. The sourdough toast completed the picture. The food was lovely...More

You perhaps thought that the Seal Rock Inn was a four star hotel. It is not, but it is a superb place to stay at a reasonable price.

It's an unusual elevator. She will probably need someone with her to deal with the doors and to maneuver in and out. I wouldn't rule the place out, just know that it's a little different and not your usual elevator. Good... More
