We meet the new owners (been there six weeks). They seem very anxious to get this place in shape. The rooms were very clean and neat (balconies, coffee makers, nice linens). Nice selection of wines and drinks in the lobby. I think this place will become better as they add their touches. The breakfast room seemed new/remodeled and making your... More

My husband and I stumbled upon Point Arena and The Wharf Master's Inn from a guide that we had purchased and so glad we did! We were beginning our long ride back to San Diego after spending a week camping up north. Our room was very clean and comfortable, with an amazing view. I always check out the reviews on... More

First off, if you are using Googlemaps from SOUTH, don't go the way they recommend! Drive up the coast through Bodega & Jenner & Ft. Ross. Second, it's easy to find and a great location. Hotel was under construction, but our visit was still wonderful. Jeff & Debbie, the hosts are super nice, it's Pet Friendly though there is nowhere... More

We were visiting from the east and my cousin recommended this place. We booked the Whitewater room and couldn't have been happier. The view was wonderful from our private balcony. The room was a little run down, but was clean as a whistle. We slept with the balcony door open and felt like we were in heaven. The inn keeper... More

We stayed a night in the Wharf Master Inn in Pt. Arena during a 4 day trip along the Sonoma-Mendocino coast. Our stay was in the middle of March, which in that neck of the woods is off season so if you’re coming on season your experience may be different. The motel itself is up on a hillside overlooking a... More

I recently stayed at the Wharf Master’s Inn, which is well located next to the pier and very close to town. From my deck, I had a view of the parking area and the front part of the hotel, not the ocean, as I booked the most economical room through a discount deal and knew I would not have a... More

This place is fantastic -- the room is a wonderful value, the bed was comfortable luxuriously appointed, and the room had a fantastic huge jacuzzi tub. The ocean view was great, and there are lots of good restaurants nearby. The staff were attentive, accommodating, and super-friendly. We can't wait to return!

We arrived late at night and found the signage lacking. Finally we saw a tiny sign and realized we were at the right place. Although the buildings seem to be dated, the interior was well furnished and didn't feel dated at all. Lovely linens gave a feel of luxury. The spa bath is a great addition for some respite. (No,...

We love this place! We weren't here long enough, nice cozy area. The Inn is very friendly, lovely view of the ocean. We were in the older area this time, liked the newer building better, facing the ocean. Nearby lighthouse is a gem. They were serving clam chowder the day we visited, and they had a huge kite show outside,... More

Stayed in the wharf masters house overlooking the pier and ocean. So peaceful and the view is beautiful. There is a balcony to sit on and enjoy the view, the people that work there were very pleasant. For a nice relaxing stay I recommend here!
