I second Tyler's previous review and couldn't agree more- You couldn't pay me to stay here again! I have never written a bad review for any accommodations, but my bad experience here forced me to share my thoughts. I travel for work and have stayed in all kinds of hotels, motels, and B&B's in all parts of the world. The... More

This was our last night on the coast and it was highlite of our trip! Owners have only been there for about a year and yes, there are things that need updating and fixed,but our room had the most awesome view with a sitting area in front of a big bay window with fresh flowers. Bed was super comfortable and... More

This is the worst place I have ever set foot in! Please do not let the pictures fool you. The place smelled of cats and is not clean. The kitchen where we were to have our breakfast was extremely dirty. I would not wish my worse enemy to stay in this place. The lovely community of Elk in the Mendocino... More

My husband and I had a gorgeous weekend at this beautiful, historic B&B -- the hosts had put fresh blossoms in our room from the giant Rhodendron tree in their front garden, setting the tone for romance. The first time I'd seen the view from our bedroom was when it was featured on the cover of Sunset magazine about 10... More

Let start off by saying that the couple that run the b&b are great people. But they don' t know how to run a b&b . We had to ask for towels both days we were their. WE had to rewash the coffee cups before we could use they. The whole b&b needs a deep cleaning & paint job, But... More

This house is falling into the water, literally. The room was dirty (old, stale and possible mold), floor was stained and the windows wouldn't close. That being said the view from the room was unrivaled! The gal managing was friendly and kind. When this place is renovated We will try it again!

We were driving down the coast on our way to California and had enough for one day. Saw another gorgeous ocean view and thought it would be nice to be able to stay somewhere we could watch the sun go down on this fabulous scene when lo and behold - we rounded a corner to find the Sandpiper Inn. They... More

We were impressed with the charming Victorian atmosphere of this place. The backyard has a beautiful view of St. Anthony's Point. Very relaxing. The breakfast on both days was amazing and mouth watering.. We will return to Sandpiper as soon as we can..

Me and my wife stayed here during our 1year anniversary, and it was the perfect way to celebrate! Tracey was so nice and even greeted us with a little wine/snack platter when we arrived. She also took it upon herself to make dinner reservations for us for a really nice and scenic restaurant. As great as this place was, it's... More
