Decided to book the Whale Watch room after reading reviews on trip advisor. Was looking for a sweet, low-key,quiet atmosphere for a much-needed weekend getaway. The staff was super-friendly and even asked us if they could make a reservation at the Little River Inn restaurant for dinner. The room simple - very clean and had all the amentities. We loved hanging out on the deck which had an awesome view of the ocean and there was even a telescope for viewing the stars at night. We loved the grass area for the dogs to run around. Hot tub was a bonus. Great way to end a day of beach hopping and walking. Can't wait to go back. This is definitely a place we could see ourselves returning too regularly. Cheers.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our all too brief stay at the Inn. The Water Tower Cottage was quaint and has its own private Hot tub (sweet!). Asha, Leddy, and Sandy were great and very accommodating. We both highly recommend this respite.

It's always such a relief and a pleasure to know that little jewels like Schoolhouse Creek are dotting the hotel landscape. It's a lovely, comfortable inn (a series of cottages and bungalows) just kind of strung out above Highway 1. Our family stayed in "Captain's Watch," near the top of the property, and we totally felt on top of the world. On the Mendocino coast, we weren't really looking for the "luxury" experience. But Schoolhouse has plenty of the welcome amenities - and though our doggie wasn't with us on the trip -- Schoolhouse has things set up for canine comfort too. There was a huge dog bed available in the corner of the room -- plenty clean for our human little one to curl up in. Mendocino itself is a few miles down the highway -- so if you're needing late night beverages / snacks / excitement --- just note you'll need to hop in the car. But places like Schoolhouse are meant for staring at the sea and the mist -- so I wouldn't change a thing. We'll be back.

Room Tip: No surprise that rooms higher up the hill are a better choice -- though a little more pricey and wor...

My sweetheart and I have been traveling up Highway 1 from the L.A. area and decided the Inn would be our destination a three night stay. We were NOT disappointed by anything! Breakfasts were excellent! The view from the watertower (we stayed in the Watertower Room) was perfect this time of year!! The marine layer can obscure sunsets in the summer, but the spring is definite the time to plan a stay! The BEST touch: our own private hot tub! What a pleasure at the end of the day!
Thank you to the Inn Keeper and the entire staff for a very pleasant stay!

My husband and I just returned from Inn at Schoolhouse Creek. What an unforgetable experience! We stayed in the Fushia Cottage and it had a wonderful view of the ocean from the deck . The cottage was so nice. It had a little kitchen and a claw foot tub in the bathroom, a separate bedroom. The inn keepers Kevin & Sandy were the best. On arrival they made you feel like family and treated us that way for our entire stay. The breakfast is wonderful and all prepared on site and is fresh daily.They also have a waiter named Noah who was so attentive I wanted to bring home with me ! We will definatly be spending more time at the inn. It is just like going home.

We stayed for 2 nights and it was wonderful - enjoyed the hottub, had phenomenal massages (Eva and Gaby - ask for either one and you will be happy!!) breakfast was great, but more than anything it is the staff there, they are warm, welcoming, and just wonderful. On our way back to the Bay Area we changed our last night plans and went back to the Inn, felt like returning home. We were so happy to be back! and greeted so wonderfully as returning guests (one day later!!). We kept saying how we wished we had more time to stay another couple of nights, get another massage, hottub some more and have another one of their great breakfasts!

Room Tip: I rated the swimming pool however it is the hottub I am referring to. I have only stayed at one ro...

This place is AMAZING!! My husband and I stayed here (in the Thyme cottage) in April of 2012, and will be going again in March of 2013. The property is beautiful, the room is very clean, and very comfortable. In the Thyme cottage there's a two person jacuzzi tub which is the best part!

The breakfast is fantastic as well. There is a good variety, and the prepared food was good quality.

The one slightly negative thing I will say is that there aren't enough towels for being a room with a shower and tub, but we just asked for more and the problem was solved. Similarly, the staff is great.

I can't say enough good things about this place, and I plan on going twice this year!
