“Great place to celebrate an occasion.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We stayed here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The whole experience was incredible! Gorgeous views, beautiful landscaping and cottages nestled in the cliffs made this a fantastically romantic getaway. We had a wood burning fireplace and a jacuzzi tub for two. The bed was just soft enough to make you dream you were sleeping on a cloud. The staff made us feel very welcome and everyone was friendly. We had dinner in the restaurant that night. It was to die for! I had the duck and it was superb. Breakfast the next day was also delicious and filling. We were both so relaxed after our stay. I can't wait to go back.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights. We had a very nice room, king bed, fire place, jacuzzi bath tub for 2, out side deck with a 2 person jacuzzi spa. The room was very clean and fresh. There was a small fridge in the room, a coffee pot. It was very quiet in our room. We had neighbors on both sides of us and couldn't hear anything. Our private deck with rocking chairs was pleasant to be out there. The check in staff was very friendly and helpful, making reservations for us. We had a car pick us up for dinner so we didn't have to drive. I would recommend everyone stay here at least once. We came back after staying here 27 years ago. Beautiful grounds, restaurant, golf course and spa.
They offer dog friendly rooms.

Room Tip: We had room 258, it was separate from the main property.

We were on our way to San Francisco and ran across the Little River Inn. The view, service and food in the restaurant is unmatched. I would highly recommend this nice little venue to anyone. We will be making a trip back just to spend more time here!

This is one of the best inns I've ever stayed at. Even the lowest-priced rooms have ocean views and the place has all the right touches. Surprisingly, the food at the restaurant was outstanding (as evidenced by the many locals eating at the bar). You will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: Second floor rooms probably have better views and are more quiet.

Haven't stayed at the inn for awhile, and found it freshly painted and with red, white, and blue banners on the front. Charming. We were in our favorite room with fireplace and view of beach through a grove of trees. Food for dinner was not gourmet but very good. Breakfasts are superior and always a treat - yummy scones, wonderful scrambled eggs, and my husband devoured those pancakes in no time! We'll be back!

Room Tip: End rooms overlooking the ocean are very quiet.

We didn't stay here but we did eat at the restaurant one evening while we were staying elsewhere in the area. We learned that the Little River Inn is managed by the fifth generation of the family that founded it in 1939. It's one of those places in which guests brag about how many seasons they have returned for. We talked with a lady who was back for her 37th. That says a lot. The food was excellent - the crab cakes and clam chowder were particularly memorable. It has a pleasant bar with views of the ocean as well as a nicely appointed restaurant. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. We were really glad that we went to Little River for dinner and are eager to go back soon. All in all, we can see why people return year after year. It's just that kind of place.

Little River Inn is my favorite place to relax and let the Pacific Ocean rejuvenate me. I love this place. My sister and I stayed in the oceanview fireplace room with a balcony looking towards the ocean. We had a gas fireplace which worked well for us as we could turn it on and off and we came and went. It was clean, comfortable, and perfect. We took advantage of the restaurant almost every night that we were there. We stayed a week. When my husband was still alive, he and I played the golf course that sits behind the Inn. I love this place. We will be making this a yearly getaway. The staff is more than helpful and friendly. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner also.

Room Tip: I think we will rent one of the deluxe oceanview rooms next time. Little more expensive but I think...
