Within 25 minutes of checking into the room, our 2 year old found a red capsule which turned out to be a muscle relaxer. Anyone want to guess at what the consequences could have been if this child had ingested this pill without anyone seeing him? The reaction from this hotel was pathetic and disgusting - They blamed their former...

There were three medical appts. scheduled for over 2 days and late on the first day , staying in SF is such an ordeal so we usually stay on the other side of the Golden Gate , but I just did not want to drive back & forth , since the appts were at VA , I looked for the...

My husband and I spent 5 days this past week at the Seal Rock Inn. If you are interested in a nice, quiet, clean, low keyed place to stay this is your hotel! It was built sometime in the 50's from what I am told and still has the old charm. It is located at Land's End and right across...

This place is awesome! We stayed here for a week on our honeymoon and they catered to our every need. Ocean views, peaceful and all around great price! The housekeeping is fantastic, the bed comfy and it's like a studio apartment :) if you are in San Fran for more then a few days stay here! It's beyond affordable and...

It isn't a five star downtown hotel with ridiculous prices. What it is, is a reasonable alternative. The outside appearance isn't great but the room we had (Ocean view) was large and comfortable if a little dated. There is no air conditioning which didn't matter in early October,and it had a good bathroom along with the usual mini-fridge and coffee...

We had a terrific experience at Seal Rock Inn. The location is five star - just a short walk down the hill to the attractions (Visitors center, Coastal Trail, beach, Cliff House). We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. The rates are reasonable (hard to find in SF). Rooms are spacious with comfortable bedding, small refrigerators and...

Been to SF many times, probably 25 since 1990. I have family in the Richmond district. We have stayed in hotels all over the city. Seal Rock Inn is by far the most convenient for our family. We always rent a car so the free parking is a perk in a city where you can spend $45.00 per day for...

Spent weeks researching for this place as accommodation with kitchenettes are rare in San Francisco. I happen to be a celiac and relied on preparing my food.

This was the 4th hotel on our 6 hotel road trip round USA. The staff were really friendly and did try to do everything for you but the hotel itself was not the best we had stayed in. The view across the San Francisco Bay was gorgeous although it was foggy most mornings that wasn't the hotels fault. We never...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
