Had been one of our favorite places until last April. Have to agree with long time visitors, not what it once was. Rooms desperately are need of attention. Things have worn out and need replacing. Office staff were not the welcoming hosts we were used to dealing with. My husband and I wondered if ownership had changed. We had planned... More

I stayed at this hotel last week and all, I can say is WOW, what a view! I spent a couple of days here and I can say that the staff is A+ and that the rooms are very comfortable. I missed having a TV in my room, but they have internet, so no big loss there. I had room... More

My partner and I live on separate coasts and get to be together and a few times a year. So we want these times to be special. My partner found the Albion Inn and it was a perfect choice. The restaurant was absolutely excellent. Loved the room and the fireplace.

My husband and I have stayed in room 20 for the Christmas holidays at least 10 times since our first visit about 20 years ago. The Inn has the best views in Mendocino and room 20 offers privacy as well as the magnificent view. When we first stayed in room 20 it was gorgeous, everything was in tip top shape.... More

My wife and I spent a few days here during her 'baby on' when she was about 7 months pregnant. The room overlooked the river, was super clean and cozy with a small fireplace. We had an excellent dinner at the restaurant at the inn and both my wife and I are 'foodies' and we were impressed. If you are... More

Have been a patron of the Albion River Inn since before they had cottages and were just a restaurant on the cliffs overlooking the cove. Have always enjoyed the hotel and its restaurant, but was quite disappointed on this last trip. One of the two rooms had been renovated a bit, but ours was tired and worn. What was worse... More

My boyfriend and I loved this little place. We usually stay in a little B&B in Elk, but since we waited too long to make our reservations we were able to book a room at this delightful inn. We stayed in room #15. This is their ADA room. Just a few quick issues we had with the room 1) the... More

The northern California coast is spectacular. Unfortunately, this hotel does not match the views and is in need of a major update. I stayed in the "Ocean Room" in a part of the hotel that appears to have been built around the 1930-40s. Decorated with 1950's thrift store and yard sale furniture, the room's gas stove (the source of heat)... More

Peaceful, serene, quite and with our own front yard looking out into the Pacific. Absolutely beautiful, even on a rainy day and night. The room was big and roomy with two leather recliners for relaxing in front of the wonderful and warm fireplace. Perfect for a book, glass of wine, newspaper and coffee or a nap. Nice big jacuzzi bath... More

the setting here is beautiful. It sits on the mouth of the Albion River and the Pacific Ocean. Our room #8 was great. It faced the ocean. It was spacious with a gas fireplace. The bedroom opened up to a wooden deck with Adirondack chairs. It was so peaceful. The restaurant that was attached was wonderful. They have a happy... More
