At Nature’s Edge
We are located in San Francisco next to the quiet and scenic surroundings of Sutro Heights Park. Some rooms have views of the blue Pacific and the Seal Rocks! We are away from the noisy downtown traffic and crowds yet still in the city. We are just two blocks up the hill from the historic Cliff House and just four blocks north of Golden Gate Park. The city is yours with the municipal buses at our door and we are convenient to San Francisco’s major hospitals. For the sportsman, we are near many municipal golf courses and just across the street are miles of walking and biking trails and beaches in Golden Gate National Recreational Area.

We have free, limited undercover parking in our ground-floor garage. Parking is limited to one car per unit and on some nights there may not be enough spaces for everyone. Parking is not assigned. But overnight street parking is available directly alongside the Inn on 48th Avenue. Height clearance is limited in our parking garage, so tall vehicles must heed the low-clearance signs of 6.5 feet. Parking is tight and each vehicle can only take up one spot. No vehicles may be parked in positions that prevent others from leaving.
The restaurant closed during the COVID pandemic and the owner retired.
The pool is OPEN. It is currently not heated.
Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the restaurant, lobby, patio and in the guest rooms.

We have free coffee service downstairs starting at 8 am until 11 am.
Dawn is coming up in San Francisco now: 6:09 am … at the Seal Rock Inn … out here at the far end of Geary Street: this is the end of the line, for buses and everything else, the western edge of America.
“… but I have a powerful aversion to working in offices, and when I didn’t show up for three or four days, they decided to do the only logical thing: move the office out here to the Seal Rock Inn.”
