This place has it all--- great view, gas fireplace, private patio. Not especially close to great dining places (except perhaps St. Orres), but all-around a very good value. Just remember that a second floor room has more privacy; and expect a little seagull poop on the windows. (Don't feed the seagulls!)

Wonderful location right on the bluff. Walked into our second floor room, but down our bags and looked out of the window - lo and behold two whales not 100m offshore. Wish we could have stayed more than the one night and disappointed it was a bit too cold to sit out on our deck. Staff friendly and helpful (I...

What could be better than falling asleep to the sound of the ocean? The desk staff greeted us promptly and was very friendly and helpful. All of the rooms have an ocean view,perfect for catching the sunset. We loved te gas fireplace and the jacuzzi tub.

From the moment Susan made our reservation to the moment we checked out it was fantastic....We arrived to check in and was greeted by Night Manager Kathy. She was so awesome on telling us about the area and where to get good clam chowder. We had an upstairs room with an awesome view. You could sit for hours listening and...

Our very clean and comfortable room had two recliners in front of a picture window on the ocean, and a set of binoculars provided, a nice deck, and is in the heart of town. We walked to breakfast and dinner. We will...

We had a wonderful weekend here in an upper level oceanfront room. Really comfortable bed, gas fireplace, and HUGE windows with breathtaking oceanfront views. Great recliner chairs to relax in while enjoying the views too. Extremely nice staff and just down the street from some good BBQ (Bones BBQ). It's quite a haul to get here to SF, but if...

My husband and I had never been to Gualala before and were looking for a new place along the Mendocino coast for our 35th wedding anniversary. We were drawn to the Seacliff because of all the positive reviews. Our stay was better than we imagined. We LOVED our stay from the minute we walked into the lobby to check in...

On a random selection, my wife and I stayed overnight at the Seacliff on the Bluff hotel on our way to Fort Bragg. First impressions are indeed important and ours was being met in the lobby by the smiling face of Cathy--welcoming us to the hotel and to Gualala. Our room was spotlessly clean and offered us a panoramic view...

This place was great. It was very clean and had everything for a nice couple getaway - fireplace, spa tub, ocean view, private deck, and a big king-size bed. Susan was very helpful when I called on the phone and continued the great service when we arrived. We left the deck door open all night (March) just to listen to...
