“Amazing view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

We loved the Inn, especially the view! We were in cottage #5 which looked straight out at the ocean. The room was cozy, nice fireplace, comfortable bed, coffee and a bottle of wine! The breakfast was excellent and the staff is very friendly. We hope to go back some time!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!

We feel so lucky to be able to share our view with you and are glad that you can enjoy it with us! Cottage #5 is located such that one has that straight on ocean view from the picture window or outside on the deck. Needless to say it is one of our most popular accommodations. Thank you for sharing your comments and for the 5 Star rating. We would be delighted to see you again!

This was a first visit to this inn in our many visits to Mendocino. Our previous inn is now closed, and innkeepers suggested Sea Rock. Since this was a brief stay on art business, our cottage was quite adequate, except for a stubborn door lock. Room was clean, warm, comfortable. Cottage 6 looks directly at the ocean, so we had great sunsets. Staff is friendly, breakfasts very good. We are staying again this month.

Room Tip: This cottage was OK for brief visit. It is small for a longer vacation.

We were welcomed each time as though we were close family coming to visit.
Rooms exceptionally clean and cozy. We have stayed in three different cabins
thus far and found all of them to be part of a wonderful ocean experience.
We will miss Hostess Linda as she is retiring this year. Folks, if you
want Primo' accommodations and a great staff, put this place on your list of
must stay and visit experiences.

Exploring the nearby city of Mendocino found us visiting local stores and cafes.
Nathan's Alternatives (wood) creations was a great visit and an unexpected
surprise for purchasing craftsman wood products. We'll be back.

Room Tip: All great rooms, at a cost to fit your budget.

Thank you for your kind words and wonderful review of the Sea Rock Inn! We like to think of all of our guests as family, especially those of you who come back to visit us frequently. Mendocino is full of unique shops, boutiques and galleries that it is hard not to find something to bring back home with you. I am so happy you found your beautiful furniture! On a personal note, Conrad and Sandra, I so much enjoyed our chats and will take you with me as a fond memory of our friendship here at the Inn. I know the staff will continue to cheerfully welcome you back to the Inn when you come to visit.

What a great Inn. We stayed in Room 18 and will definitely request this room on our next trip to Mendocino. The staff was very friendly, breakfast was excellent. We enjoyed sitting on our patio each afternoon and watching the whales after exploring the town and other areas of interest near by. The room was very comfortable and we really enjoyed the wood burning stove in our room. Jim & Terry

Room Tip: Rooms with a view are definitely worth it.

Hi Jim and Terry,
We would love to see you again on a return trip to Mendocino! And we will save your room #18 for you! Whale watching is a favorite pastime during the later part of December and our location on the bluff affords the best views around, especially on the benches across the street relaxing with a glass of your complimentary wine! Thank you guys for your 5 Star review and great comments.

Awesome place to stay! I hope to come back soon. The staff was very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed watching the sunset from our own little patio. The room was very nice with our own little fireplace.

Thank you Tracy for your 5 Star review! I'm so glad you were able to witness one of our super sunsets! Having ocean view patios or decks on all of our accommodation makes it so nice to just sit in the privacy of your room and enjoy the early evening of color. We would love to host another visit from you soon!

The staff, the location and the accommodations were superb. The staff was very friendly and helpful--they went out of their way to make sure our experience in Mendocino was fantastic. Our room overlooked the ocean where, on a daily basis, we watched migrating whales. The rooms were cozy, up to date and immaculate.
Overall, we could not have been more happy with the Sea Rock Inn.

Thank you Bob and Lisa for your wonderful review. The migrating whales in December are such a treat to watch! The ocean view rooms and in-room binoculars make spotting them and watching their progress so much fun. We are happy that we met our goal in making YOU happy!

We have been going to the Searock Inn at least once a year since 1995. It is by far our favorite place to stay in Mendocino. The view from our regular room #12 is just fantastic. We look right out over the cove at the Pacific Ocean. If it is a beautiful clear day you can go across the street to the Searock's small park and sit on the bench listening to the restful sound of the ocean breakers against the cliff's. It is truly an experience that we have enjoyed over and over again for several years.

Room Tip: No fitness center or swimming pool but the large soaking tubs in the suite is so relaxing with it...

Your favorite room #12 is very popular for its ocean view soak tub and yes how much more relaxing can you get?
