After searching online for B&BS My wife and I came across the Captains Inn at Moss landing..Immediately booked the High Seas room because of its uniqueness(visit online) We appreciated all the nautical nuances (decor) within the room, which helped explain some of the history of this area! The service was top notch, very clean and maintained room, the value well worth the perfect getaway! The best part of the day was the morning breakfast with Melanie (just perfect ). The team of Melanie and Yohn offered ideas for your planning of your day based on your interest. Moss landing offered the diamond in the rough for your dining experiences,just unbelievable food fare second to none ( the biggest surprise of all) Would highly recommend a visit at the Captains Inn and the great surroundings at moss landing , much to do and see and enjoy! sincerely Arlene and John Rogan

Stayed here for one night! The room was great, the service was outstanding! So much history in this house and town! It’s a place that you have to visit and stay a couple of nights! My room was great; the view from the tub was so good! Would love to visit every year! The area is so calm and peaceful! Moss Landing is a little town with so much charm and character! The walk in town and the beach after sunset was incredible! Thanks for everything!

6/8/12 - 6/10/12 First time here and it was wonderful. We realized everything was within walking distance, that was great. If you want they even rent bikes. So walk, ride or whatever your pleasure it's all here for you. As for the innkeepers, Melanie & Yohn, there is no words to say how welcoming they were. And so down to earth. Try it and you won't regret it...

We made The Captain's Inn our week's headquarters for exploring the Monterey Bay area. Most coastal attractions are within a half hour drive and Moss Landing itself has great restaurants, shops, and a convenient harbor from which Elkhorn Slough nature excursions and whale watching boats debark. You can also ride horses on the beach or rent a kayak. Nature photographers and birders owe themselves a stay here as the area is rich in wildlife. Best of all Melanie and Yohn run an exceptional B+B away from the hustle and bustle of the Peninsula and they make you feel right at home.

We stayed at Captains Inn in April of 2012. Melanie is a great hostess. The room we stayed in in the Boat House was immaculate. The decorations were really fantastic and the garden tub a fantastic touch. I had not taken a bath in twenty years but it was great. Melanie is an amazing cook, our breakfast each morning we talked about the rest of the day. Melanie took the time to tell us about lots of places in the area to go see and we took day trips to Pacific Grove, only twenty minutes away and then up to Capitola Beach, only 15 minutes away. Its nice to get out of the fast lane and feel like you went back in time to a slower paced world. I loved the view from our room and sat and looked out for hours. Three cheers to Melanie for a top notch experience.

We have stayed at the Captain's Inn many times and have always thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Melanie always makes us feel welcomed and special. Breakfasts are delicious and we like visiting with the other guests. We really enjoy staying in the Boathouse rooms. We can't wait to return.

Melanie and Captain make you feel welcome the moment you enter the Inn. Breakfast is warm and wonderful. From many of the rooms you can see wild life in action including a fluffed out Blue Heron, Snowy Egrets as they fly in and out of the slough and playful otters. Melanie has great recommendations for local activities and restaurants. I definitely enjoy staying at the Captain's Inn and recommend it to my colleagues and friends.
