Fodor's Expert Review Seacliff Motel on the Bluff

39140 S. Hwy. 1, Gualala, California, 95445, USA

Wedged in back of a small shopping center, this motel is not much to look at, but you'll spend your time here staring at the Pacific panorama because all rooms have ocean views. The rooms' interiors are strictly standard issue, but surprising extras ice this cake: take the binoculars out to your balcony or patio; stay in and watch the sunset after a long soak in your jetted tub; snuggle into a robe and relax in front of your gas fireplace. Upstairs rooms have cathedral ceilings; Wi-Fi is available throughout.

PROS

  • smart budget choice
  • Trinks restaurant next door for creative breakfasts (lunch served, too)
  • clean rooms with gas fireplaces, free Wi-Fi, and binoculars

CONS

  • nondescript from highway
  • standard-issue decor
  • sometimes foggy in summer
