We rented the Mill Cottage and we loved the quaint and pretty property and location. The bathrooms were renovated and clean. The furnishings and decor were older but that added charm. We only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed a bit longer. Yes there is no communication, but if you come prepared that isn't a big deal,... More

Location was wonderful, room was a dump! Very outdated, stained carpets, grungy furniture, plates, utensils and microwave kept in bathroom on a rotted out rattan shelf. Very unsanitary. Spiders in every room!

We apologize for the apparent discomfort that you experienced during your recent stay at the Jenner Inn. We recently reacquired our Country Inn by the sea; and, thus, we are steadily restoring the Jenner Inn's charm and splendor. Our upbeat housekeeping staff is vigorously cleaning each and every room, all the while mindful of insects that abound here in the... More

My family of 4 visited Jenner Inn & Cottages in Sonoma County in Northern Cal several years ago and decided to visit it again this summer via our home in So. Cal. It is truly a SPECIAL place, where the Russian River meets the sea (Pacific Ocean). You can visit here anytime of year, with the Fall and Winter being... More

This is quaint place to visit and stay. Plus it is pet friendly. Jenner hasn't change much over the years, which was just fine with us. Our room was very nice big enough yet cozy at the same time. The restaurant serves heathy organic food and the outdoor patio is the place to be to people watch. Access to the... More

I like how people on here are like ITS OLD, OUTDATED, NO COMMUNICATION! But they fail to realize a few things... 1.) This establishment is over 100 years old. 2.) They just changed owners within the past year- no excuse but I am sure they are trying to get a handle on everything. 3.) Your location is breath-taking, but you... More

We made a trip to Napa Valley and were having a wonderful trip UNTIL we arrived at our intermediate stay on the way to San Francisco. We booked a 3 day stay at Jenner by the Sea thinking this would be a nice little get a way. Boy were we mistaken. If you like to stay at a place with... More

The carpet is disgusting with stains. There is no phone in the room and no signal for your mobile phone either and they close at 9pm! So what do... More

It's not a bad place. I rented a suite there a while back. It's just not a 5 star accomodations. 3 stars max. Everything in the suite was old, crack in the walls, etc. Maybe it was the idea, but everything looks like it was purchased at a flee market. Not impressed at all. Service was good.
