This was a very nice stay that we did last fall. The inn is very nice and staff friendly. Our room overlooked highway one and the ocean, but was far enough away to avoid any road noise. Inn needs some loving care, as exterior in spots need painting especially in the harsh

fjzelko, Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. It was nice to hear how much you enjoyed your room and the view as well as hear some of your feedback. We jokingly say that the maintenance is like it is for the Golden Gate Bridge...you start at one end and by the time you are done, you are starting again. Our maintenance staff is always busy with painting and other projects, as you commented, the coastal salt air can be harsh on buildings. I am sorry to hear about your fireplace not functioning properly. We have recently conducted an inspection of rooms to make sure everything is working properly and if there is an issue, our maintenance staff is ready and able to make sure to take care of it right away. We look forward to welcoming you back again. Sincerely, Terra Wagner Lodging Manager

Soon after checking into our cottage (Abbott) at the Little River Inn, Jonathan - a Western Gull - greeted us, landing on the decorative weathered divider that separated our deck from adjoining cottage rooms. He wanted to see what we had to share with him. Unlike California

Little River Inn is an outstanding Inn. The staff is friendly and helpful. We only had breakfast, which is terrific. The room (Alice Abbot) was super clean, roomy, and it was totally worth upgrading to the oceanfront room with a hot tub. I can't wait to return to the Little

Friends told us of this place and they were right. It is a great place to enjoy the coast. Plus not being to far from Mendocino & Ft. Bragg makes enjoying the area even more fun. We will definitely visit there again & stay a little longer.

Ask for one of the rooms along the front of the Gardens. Most are in groups of 2 or 3 away from the main building. These all face towards the sea and have balconies and patio doors. A nice place, and Mendocino only a short drive away Best wishes Roy

I cannot tell you much about the cottages. We booked very last minute so I did not know they even had cottages. We stayed in a fire placed room just off the main building. The views were spectacular and we could sit on the porch in the morning with coffee and at night with wine. It is a very special spot. Our room was not what I would consider "updated" but the location and setting make up for it 20 fold.
