The Sweetwater in is located very close walking distance to the center of Mendocino. Offers a number of unique rooms and suites. Their Redwood Tower is a great option for families due to the large size of the space - stayed there previously with my two teen boys and it worked perfectly. Even has a panoramic viewing deck on the... More

Our family stayed in the Garden Cottage. They gave us a deal for booking last minute. Friendly staff. Very clean, private hot tub, full kitchen, most comfortable bed, actual woodstove for cozy fire in the evening and secure backyard for the kids to play safely. A short scenic walk to beach, bluffs, shops and great food. Could not improve upon... More

My wife and I were looking for dog friendly lodging in Mendocino and came upon Sweetwater Inn. We had a really great time here and found that Sweetwater held true to the old bohemian legacy of Mendocino before it turned into Carmel. In fact we love Carmel too but there is something nostalgic about the easy going roots of Mendo... More

Me and my girlfriend went to sweetwater to get some time away and reconnect romantically. Everything seemed really nice at first. We stayed in the sweetwater tower which was a sweet view and they let us have one night instead of their minimum two nights stay. That was cool.However, there was a lot that was not communicated and even some... More

We stayed in the "View West" room. I'd give it a "C-" - ok, but nothing special, especially for $295. On the plus side, it was large and clean. On the negative side, it was described as having a view of the town, when it actually looks down on a road. The bathroom was pretty, but not very functional -... More

My husband and I visited the Sweetwater on our recent vacation and couldn't have been happier. We stayed in the Flower Cottage - a cute, clean, and well-appointed room with a comfortable bed. The inn grounds are beautifully maintained and dotted with several unique flowers we had never seen before. The Sweetwater is only a few steps from Mendocino's main... More

We stayed in the Redwood Cottage which is on the other side of the highway. It was quiet. We had a lovely outside area that was fenced in with its own hot tub. The inside was charming. The bed was comfortable. A dehumidifer needs to run as the room does have some mold smell. The hot tub water was clean,however... More

The inn grounds are lovely and the staff accommodating. We stayed in a tower room which was sparkling clean and had everything we needed. I can't complain really as it was a fun place to stay. I can, however, offer some suggestions. The rooms need plush mattresses. REALLY this is a necessity for a spa type resort. The kitchens are... More
