I was very disappointed in the steak I ordered. For $32, I got a nicely seared steak that was very tough, good mashed potatoes and al dente green beans with no seasoning. It was like the meat had been rapidly defrosted, w/no tenderizer/marinade and grilled to a slow death. I asked for medium and there was no pink at all.... More

We've been staying here almost every year starting 2012 with our kids. The kids request the same room every time because the staff said it is a room that is reserved for not pets. We do not have any objections to pets, but one of the kids (including me) have severe allergies to cat and dog dander. The room(s) is... More

We stayed in one of the older rooms facing the Pacific. Great view from the porch as we finished a bottle of wine before dinner. The room was large and clean. The gardens and shrubbery are well maintained. One of the nicest places we have stayed at.

Excellent stay when visiting coastal Northern California. Very accommodating for staying with your dogs. We don't like to leave our dogs unattended so did room service. Breakfast and dinner were very good. The beach is a short walk and the wineries are a short drive away, many that allow dogs on the patios and lawns.

The Inn itself was decent. We had a clean, well appointed room. We were extremely disappointed with all of our interactions with the hotel staff. When we checked in, the lady did not crack a smile or welcome us at all. She was all business - and not in a friendly manner. Later, I went to the front desk to... More

The property is so well kept. Our room was spacious with a fireplace, small fridge and everything we needed. Pro shop well stocked and affordable. Restaurant was great and especially loved the breakfast. Definitely going to plan another get away. So close to Mendocino and Ft. Bragg.

I was heading up north for business and this was the only place that had a room left. The hotel overlooks the ocean with amazing landscaping. It is has everything to offer, a dining room, bar, spa, golf course and yarn shop. Everything that one needs. The views from my room overlooked the ocean and was amazing. Dinner in the... More

We had spent the day driving north on Highway 1 and our original plan was to make it as far as Fort Bragg and stay in a chain hotel. Thankfully we were off schedule and sought lodging around 9:30pm at the Little River Inn! What an absolute gem! Although the original property has been updated to meet modern expectations, the...

We go to the Little River Inn when we are in need of some rest and quiet relaxation, and it never disappoints. The cottages have hot tubs that look out over the cove, and it is a wonderful setting in which to turn off the phones and computers and just be still for a while. The staff is always welcoming...
