“The Little River Inn With a Big Heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2009

What a fabulous way to wind up our business trip to the coast. The Little River Inn has it all.
We were pleasantly surprised to find such a jewel amongst all of the lodgings that are offered in and around the area.
Our room was on the coastal side with a fanstatic view of the ocean. We ordered dinner from room service and the food and the service was outstanding.
We will definitely be back and we are telling all of our friends and family what a great place to stay, just wished we had more time to use the other facilities (golf and spa).
Thanks to the staff that helped us find the right room at a great price. David and Patti Bonti

We have returned to the Little River Inn many times and each experience has been wonderful. A perfect blend of the best of a good hotel and a small B&B. It's warm, comfortable, well-appointed, personal, and the staff are there when you need them. Our room had a wonderful ocean & beach view complete with rockers on the porch and a fireplace which we really enjoyed on this sometimes stormy weekend. When we wished to get out, there was the beach across the street and Mendocino only 2 miles away. The Inn has one of the best bars - fantastic ocean view, favorite with locals, great bartender, and yummy food & drinks - loved the brie fruit plate and save room for the Olalllieberry pie. Dog friendly too - we had a great experience with how accommodating and welcoming to dogs they are.

Enjoyed the ocean view off the deck and the simple but clean accommodations.
Although we didn't ultimately have to change plans, the staff was flexible and understanding regarding a personal family emergency that arose back home.

The fresh air and ocean drive down Highway One added to the enjoyable trip.

View from deck rocking chairs was SPECTACULAR!!!! Room was Very inviting, extremely comfortable bed, and the fireplace separates the good from the exceptional Inns. Arrive at the dinning room early so you are able to be seated in front of one of the 3 fabulous garden views. Service was unparalleled. A perfect setting to re-kindle your romance for your loved one.

Its a one stop that has it all, great rooms with view and fireplace, massage for total pleasure, dining always delicious, drinks to watch the sunset, and service that always pleases. Many of our friends always agree and always return for more relaxation.

My wife and I live about 15 miles from Little River, and the inn, but it might has well have been another planet we went to- as we felt we were able to escape our busy lives with an incredibly romantic setting, amazing view, excellent service and fantastic food! The room service was wonderful. The breakfast was memorable, and I cannot wait to go back!
