It’s in a pretty location with rooms each having a deck overlooking the ocean or river. All except two rooms have a designated parking spot. The other two rooms have to fight for parking with the adjoining restaurant (those being the least expensive rooms). For these two rooms it means you can’t park anywhere near your room. The room was small but had a comfortable bed but only one nightstand. They had three types of pillows to choose from. They offered bathrobes. The room had a gas fireplace (like a wood burning stove) which was nice. Two comfy chairs could be turned to look out the large windows at the water. There was also a complementary small bottle of wine. A small deck outside had two chairs. There was a small fridge but no microwave. The only two negatives were that there was only one nightstand and the wi-fi did not work most of the time. Breakfast was included at the onsite restaurant but you had to pick a time for breakfast when you register. At the restaurant the choices were presented on a small tag where you checked off what you wanted. They offered one chef’s choice hot entrée which varied every day. Also available were juices, fresh fruit, oatmeal, yogurt, pastries and croissants. It was all good except the pastry they severed the day we were there was a banana bread (not what I’d call a pastry) but it was extremely dry, not worth eating. They presented a “bill” at the end of the meal stating the valued cost was $25 each but was zeroed out (as it was included) but they did expect you to tip on that value. The restaurant is not open to the public for breakfast so it was just Inn guests who were dining. The view from there was very nice.

We enjoyed one night on a recent trip up the northern California coast on our way to Anderson Valley and Healdsburg. We have stayed here before and the location/view remain as beautiful as always. We enjoyed the complimentary bottle of wine while sitting on the two chairs on the patio outside our room and taking in that view. The complimentary breakfast the next morning was excellent as was the service. Glad we returned and will come back.

We spent two nites here in Sept and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Clean , tidy, quiet. We were celebrating our anniversary and they left us a congratulatory note with free drinks at dinner. Very thoughtful. We were in cabin 5. The bed was so comfortable and being able to leave slider open at nite to hear the waves was the best sleep aid.

My husband and I stayed at the Albion River Inn in April 2022 for 3 nights. We were in room 7. Our room has a great view but our room patio door has some blurry areas. Not sure if it is dirty or scratched. So the view is not as great as it can be when we are sitting inside as we have to look through a somewhat blurry patio door. There are a couple chairs out on the patio to enjoy the great view. The room is spacious and pretty clean. It is an older room like it is harder to find plugs to charge our electronic devices. More modern rooms have plugs or usb ports right on the nightstand.  Breakfast is included. We also ate dinner at the restaurant one night. The food is fine, not great but not bad either.

The Albion River Inn is in a very special and exclusive category -- it offers a classic Northern California experience that sadly is becoming difficult to find. Reminds me of the old Heritage House from 20 years ago, but the Albion is a lot better. The accommodations are very comfortable with lots of thoughtful touches, exactly what you'd expect from a mid-luxury hotel. Extremely clean. The views are spectacular, and the ambiance and small scale of the property provide an intimate atmosphere for guests to enjoy nature and relaxation. We held our daughter's small wedding at the Albion during our 5-day stay, and the hotel staff (in particular Chelsea Strupp) did a wonderful job pulling it all together for our out-of-town family while making sure the big day went off without any glitches. We also held our wedding dinner at the hotel and the wonderful chef produced a 5-star experience for our table of 10. On another night, the bride and groom loved the whiskey tasting while we sampled the wonderful wine menu. We and our guests all enjoyed the delicious hot breakfasts each day that are included in the room charge. Albion River Inn offers a top-drawer experience, a beautiful location and unlike Napa Valley, is still within reach of the average traveler's splurge budget! A very, very special place and we can't wait to return!

Still a delightful getaway even after a very unsettling couple years. Covid, the death of beloved co-owner Peter Wells, and the departure of long time chef Stephen Smith. Flurry still holds court at the bar, ably assisted by sommelier and spirits wizard Mark Bowery. The kitchen continues to put out wonderful, eclectic selections despite the stressful transition from Chef Steph. The views remain extraordinary from the cottages.

We Enjoyed our stay as the views were fantastic and the restaurant superb. Unfortunately we were in room number 9 and the room reeked of cigarette smoke. This clouded our enjoyment. We would definitely go back, but we would preview the room first.

We were able to stay only one night in our journey up the coast but could not have envisioned a more perfect spot! Amazing unimpeded ocean view with the beautiful sounds of the waves, a private deck and beautifully kept garden. The accommodations were clean, spacious and contemporary. LOVED THE NO TV and quite/peace of the property. Unfortunately we were not able to try their fabulous restaurant due to not having a reservation..maybe next time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this beautiful location for those that want to hear/see the ocean and have some peace in a special place.

In the past my wife and I have spent many wonderful and romantic stays at the Albion River Inn but our recent stay was very disappointing. Still the beautiful views but the cabins have fallen on better times. The units have not been kept up. Paint chips throughout the interior, dry rot faded and peeling paint on the exteriors , a door on the fireplace broken, the linoleum in the bath area stained and possible mildew. The food in the restaurant was wonderful but the wine prices were very high and the overall ambience of the restaurant was dated. We were looking forward to another exciting stay but came away disappointed especially considering the nightly rate.
