Seal Cove Inn Discover Seal Cove Inn
an exclusive half moon bay hotel



Seal Cove Inn is seated 30-minutes south of San Francisco, in tranquil Moss Beach near Half Moon Bay. The hotel is situated on a bluff at the edge of the Pacific Ocean and surrounded by an imposing grove of cypress trees. The community of Moss Beach is nestled between forested hills and pristine coastlines. Direct access from Inn to the Dardenelle Trail which leads to the J V Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. Although the San Francisco Airport is just 25 minutes away, the serene San Mateo County community of Half Moon Bay is sheltered from the steady cacophony of sounds and commotion that is stereotypical of San Francisco and the Bay Area.


Our Moss Beach Inn provides guests with special amenities and services to ensure an extraordinary experience. We provide a complimentary signature ‘Be Replenished’ breakfast daily that may be served in your room, or enjoyed in our dining room. Complimentary tea and locally roasted organic coffee is also available which is brewed in our self serve espresso bar. Bottled water and soft drinks are always available at any of our beverage stations that are conveniently arranged on each floor of the hotel. We also provide a complimentary glass of wine or beer in the evening to our guests. If cycling through town is your preference, we offer complimentary use of our bicycles that are available on a first-come-first-served basis before dusk. We also provide complimentary beach chairs and towels available at our front desk for a relaxing afternoon on the shore. Another popular service is our “I Forgot” list of guest conveniences that are also available to guests at the front desk. WiFi is complimentary and available throughout the property. In-room amenities include Gaia Essentials handmade moisturizing bath and body toiletries in our signature scent, luxuriously soft sheets, premium pillows, and warming one-touch gas fireplaces in each room. Custom works of art and photography created by local artists are placed in each guest room and throughout the hotel, for all to enjoy.


Within Half Moon Bay guests of the hotel can enjoy boutique shops, art galleries, pristine beaches, golf courses, farms, and fantastic restaurants. Depending on the time of year you visit, there are many annual festivals that draw visitors from around the country. Half Moon Bay offers a welcoming and laid back experience for the people who live here, and visitors to the area. Whether you want to go for an easy bike ride, stroll through local art galleries, share the day shopping for antiques, or take in the salty air as you ride horseback on the beach, guests of the Seal Cove Inn are promised an unforgettable experience.
