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

It was everything we hoped for; not fancy,but clean, a place to relax after hiking,biking,touring all day with good beds,very nice linens to end the day. A knock on the door in the morning announced the arrival of warm muffins/pastries on the doorstep. Yum! The location was... 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 The cottage itself was very outdated, reminded me of someones granny's house.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

The River Gate room is very comfortable with a fireplace, heaters, full bathroom, very comfortable bed and two windows on Main Street with a view of the Pacific. This place is known for its private spas and its proximity to the "community" (read open to the public) clothing optional hot tub. We didn't use either but we found our location... More

We returned to the Redwood Cottage again this year. It's a lovely little cottage hand-crafted with love. The kitchen has good pots, pans and knives. The best part is the private deck with a large hot tub. We bring our dog. They provide a basket with dog cookies, dog towels, .. especially for their canine guests.

This place is a great little place in Mendocino as well. The home feels nice and comfy. My room had a great view of the ocean and church with a nice fireplace in my room and my own bathroom. On the property they have a community hot tub or a private hot tub. The community hot tub is included with... More
