Five stars for location, service, quaint accommodations. Stayed in the country suite. Cute room with small kitchen for snacks / coffee with fridge. Daily muffins at our door. Cute fireplace. View towards the ocean. Walking distance to town for shops and food. Housekeeper was great and she turned in my necklace to be mailed to me when I left it... More

We had a great time at the Sweetwater Inn. We were in the garden cottage, a room with a private garden and a private hot tub. The room was exactly as described in the web site and if the bathroom was a little small, the garden and the hot tub more than compensated. We used the complimentary spa both days... More

This was my third visit to Sweetwater and it's starting to feel like home. We so enjoyed our stay in the water tower (our usual room). A pleasant surprise was the lovely remodel of the spa area and especially the indoor facilities. The room is always clean and comfortable. Another new surprise was the delivery of warm baked goods to... More

A 3 hour drive from San Francisco, but totally worth the trip. Get past the winding road and you hit Mendocino. A quiet town but a town that is not stuck in time. The Sweetwater Inn, what a wonderful place to getaway. Our room was cozy- queen sized bed, fireplace, and a coffee maker. In the morning they deliver to... More

My wife and I went to the spa and really enjoyed ourselves. The outside grounds are kind of maze-like and are filled with creative pieces and beautiful flowers. The communal hot tub is free with a massage treatment and is really nice. We were alone there, which was a plus. All wood...perfect temperature...nice jets...high water level--very romantic and relaxing. Then... More

We stayed in the Sweetwater Tower. This is the little room above the big communal hot top. This room is kind of quirky in that your toilet is down in the spa and you share it with everyone using the spa while it's open. The cool thing is that when the spa is closed (think all night long) you get... More

This cottage in Australian dollars cost $311 for one night. The cottage itself was very outdated, reminded me of someones granny's house. The decor was old fashioned, the bathroom small,the water came from a well so the water had an orangish hue as did the bath towels. It had a second bed which is what we paid, but it was... More

The Sweetwater Inn and Spa is a great choice for a Mendocino visit. Sited on Main Street (but a block away from the retail commercial area), the location is convenient and quaint. There's a very short walk to all the retail, service (cafes, restaurants) and scenic opportunities (Headlands hike, beach access) Mendo offers. We stayed in the historic Victorian home... More

We stayed in Rosie's room for three nights. One short flight of stairs to the room. The Inn was so clean. An easy walk to all of the sights in Mendocino, restaurants. We did not have an ocean view, but for the little time we were in the room, no problem. The room itself is big enough for two, and... More
