My husband and I stayed at the Country Inn when travelling the coastal road from San Francisco to Seattle.
As mentioned by previous reviewers we arrived to an envelope with the key to our room and a note to say that the owner would be returning later and would discuss breakfast then - not a problem. We dropped off our bags and headed out to find something to eat, found somewhere just up the road which was okay, but nothing special. There wasn't much to see in the area and some local drunks sitting on a wall outside a bar shouted at us to give them some money, and when we didn't they shouted abuse. When we arrived back we made arangements to have breakfast in our room the next morning - as a previous review mentioned there was not a choice for breakfast, but we weren't bothered about that really.
We'd booked to stay in Granny's Attic, which, as the name would suggest, was at the top of the house. The decor was a bit tired, but it felt like it had been furnished with love. The sheets were brushed cotton - I haven't come across this anywhere for so long and found it amusing! The floor boards were very creeky as you walked around the room. Our room was steiflingly hot throughout the night, even though we left the window wide open, which also meant that you could hear trucks along the highway breaking as well as trains passing through he nearby railway.
Breakfast was served at the arrangedtime in our room, a breakfast doodle, some fruit, orange juice and coffee. Nothing to write home about but it filled a hole. The coffee was the worse coffee I had ever tasted I think - made worse by the fact that there was no milk, only creamer - a little touch that could have made a big difference.
Our host and hostess (she ran the show) seemed friendly, the room was a good price nad it suited our purposes, however if I had the choice again I would spend the extra and stay in Mendocino. I would also think twice about doing SF to Fort Bragg in one day - the map can be deceiving and although the rest of our journey ws pretty well spaced out we felt rushed on this section and weren't really able to appreciate the area and all it had to offer.
