I received a massage that (at least in large part) relieved chronic pain in a knee that had been prevalent for years. The views, service, and every part of the experience was wonderful! I'd recommend staying here for a romantic weekend away.

The Schoolhouse In is everything you (or your dog) could hope for in a California coastal inn(or anywhere), but it has, hands down, the best breakfast anywhere in CA, or perhaps the USA. The raft is to die for, and if you have a sweet tooth and are really hungry, don't miss the french toast!

Stayed here in April 2015 with a family of four and our dog - the reason for picking this hotel, as they are dog friendly. I found it a wee bit worn-looking... but not much, and that was more than made up for by the friendly service, especially in the restaurant. They have a separate dining room where dogs are... More

First, I would like to say that I made my feelings known to staff before leaving (I tried earlier but got a disinterested response), and they did credit me some of the pet fees and also a ten percent rebate, which I appreciate. I still feel compelled to write what I believe is an honest review, given the marketing and... More

We stayed in the watertower suite at the Inn during early November for two nights. We had great weather and watched the sunset from the top of the water tower. The suite includes a private jacuzzi in the water tower. The suit itself is cozy, with a comfy bed and a fireplace controlled with the thermostat. The spa is great-... More

Can't say enough wonderful things about our stay. The staff was warm and helpful. We stayed in the Heather cottage, which was charming, comfortable, and hosted a lovely view of the ocean from the deck. We also enjoyed watching the sunset from the hot tub and sauna. Location was just a short drive to Mendocino, and the best breakfast place... More

We have stayed at other destinations along highway 1 in California. Recently we celebrated an anniversary and found the "Inn at Schoolhouse Creek". It was a most delightful, friendly, and quiet environment. The restaurant is outstanding and the ambiance welcoming. Courteous staff, reasonable rates. Highly recommend. James and Bettina

We spent three nights here with friends. Cottages were rustic but clean and comfortable. Outstanding breakfasts at the Circa 1962 restaurant, with generous portions of innovative food. The morning show of quail, chipmonks, and Stellar Jays competing for free food was fun. The Inn and restaurant are pet friendly - you can even order gourmet dog food at the restaurant.... More

This place is really interesting! The rooms are small but quite comfortable, there is a limited view of the Pacific, but it is romantic and inviting! I would definitely return! There is a breakfast area that serves fantastic meals, a complimentary bottle of wine greets you in the room, and there is a hot tub and steam room to enjoy.... More

Checked was friendly and easy. View from room was quite nice. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable (good beds). Great Sunset from the little balcony area with 2 chairs and a small table. Small refrigerator for wine and sundries. Breakfast at the restaurant was quite nice. Don't miss the walk down to the "private" cove.
