The room was very clean. The bed was comfortable. Robes, coffee, view all an A+

Beautiful views of the Pacific, wonderful staff, great food and drink. Everything in the room was clean and well kept (no furniture dings or dents) the bed linens were soft and comfortable. Could use a deep cleaning of the hard water deposits from the shower head and faucet, the flow was erratic and weak with visual deposits on the fixtures.

The view was excellent! But i have to say the room needs a good update. I was not impressed with the coffeemaker in the bathroom with the cups/glasses above the toilet! I know that other hotels also have their coffeemakers in the bathroom, maybe to keep the odor of the coffee kept in the bathroom rather than the room. But the cabinet above the toilet holding the coffee mugs and wine glasses seemed unsanitary.

Wonderful location, large rooms and an excellent breakfast

I came here to celebrate my 30th birthday and I can't rave enough about what an amazing experience it was. If you're looking for some R&R, you shouldn't miss out on staying here. We were greeted with a perfect pet friendly room with a fireplace and an ocean view balcony with rocking chairs where we enjoyed wine we purchased on our drive up to Mendocino. Each night, we could hear the waves crashing from our bed if we left the sliding door open which was so relaxing! My birthday dinner was spent at the Little River Inn restaurant where we were able to dine with our dog in our own private little room with ocean views. It was perfect! Already planning our next trip and looking forward to making this our getaway place for many years to come.

Great location overlooking the ocean, accommodating staff, very nice room, good food in the restaurant, an overall wonderful experience.

Ours is a short stay for one night .. beautiful views of ocean in ocean view room.

My 4 or 5th time here. The location is unbeatable. The restaurant is lovely and Wild fish across the street was amazing!

Wonderful older hotel with private decks and ocean views. Lots of history here. We stayed in pet friendly room Staff provided water dish and treats plus a doggie bag with extra sheets for covering bed and furniture. Very thoughtful. Bar food was GREAT. Breakfast also is good. Not thrilled with dining room cuisine although fresh white linen with each use is very classic. My parents came here over 70 years ago and so I am thinking about how Little River was set up then. Good memories here.
