Reservations & cancellations
Minimum two-night reservations are required for holidays and weekends (Friday or Saturday night).
As we are a small inn, we need 72-hour prior notice of canceling a reservation to avoid forfeiting your first night’s deposit. For deposits paid by credit card, there is a $30 non-refundable surcharge when cancelling a reservation more than a week before. For cancellations made four months prior to arrival, a check will be issued.
Due to the ongoing pandemic and labor shortages, we may not be able to ensure daily cleanings during your stay, especially during the weekends.
All of our guest rooms are non-smoking and California state law forbids smoking in our restaurant, our lobby and other common areas as well. Guests who wish to smoke are requested to use our outdoor patio and to respect requests from others who may be upset with smoke in the area.
Sorry, no pets are allowed in the rooms. Comfort and Emotional* support animals are considered pets and do not qualify under Title II or III ADA protection and are not allowed. However, service Animals are welcome. We recommend the first-floor rooms as they open up onto the open patio for walking your wonderful companions! (* Specific qualified tasks performed are exempt.)
Fear And Loathing on the Campaign Trail, 1972
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.”
—Hunter S. Thompson:
