My husband and I stayed here for one night on our drive up the coast from San Francisco to Portland. All the rooms are little cottages with a beautiful view of the ocean from the bluff where the inn is located. Bed was comfy, little stove in the room took the chill off and there were a pair of comfortable... More

This was the most amazing view ever! We stopped here when we got tired of driving up the coast, and it ended up being an amazing experience. Beautiful room and views with your own deck. The restaurant is spectacular as well. Highly recommended :)

A step back in time with modern amenities, the Albion Schoolhouse Inn is a too cool for school abode to bunk up with some family and friends. There's a funky cool vibe as soon as you walk through the front door, entering the grand foyer which opens to the spacious library and stage. Practice your musical talents on the full... More

The Albion River Inn in a wonderful getaway. The property is lovely with amazing landscaping and incredible views. The rooms are well appointed and most have private decks on which to relax and soak up some sun and the sound of the ocean below. I've been coming to the Albion River Inn for 15 years. It never disappoints. Some people... More

Our room cost a bit more than we had planned on spending, and it was so well worth it! We were so very happy with our room, the complimentary wine, and the spectacular view of the bay, the waves splashing over the black boulders, and the hillside on the other side of the bay. The view was fantastic. We were... More

My husband & I recently road tripped from San Francisco to Seattle. We came across the Albion River Inn by pure chance & what a great find it turned out to be.

I thought the Albion river Inn was really lovely. The rooms were quaint but very clean and extremely comfortable, the beds were great, the restaurant served delicious meals. Most of all the views were quite spectacular from all the rooms! Two things let it down for me - slow breakfast service, on 2 of 3 days it was ok, but... More

No TVs - the rooms are meant to inspire relaxation and romance and they fulfilled those perfectly. We had our own deck which looked out onto the ocean and Albion River bridge. GORGEOUS scenery we never tired of. And there was a wonderful fireplace we sat and relaxed/read by and a huge soaking tub that also looked out to the... More

Individual bungalows with in-room jacuzzis ... on grounds reminiscent of a botanical garden ... and a gourmet restaurant ... all overlooking a rocky Pacific cove where the river meets the sea. What more could we want? Our bungalow was spacious, well maintained, comfortable and quiet. The fireplace was a great touch, and we appreciated them stacking the kindling and firewood... More

Right on the coast, the ocean views and fireplaces make a tv unnecessary. The rooms have comfortable easy chairs and very comfy bed and bedding. Rooms have coffee makers and small fridge, ice is readily available as is wood. The decks are private and set amidst lovely landscaping which is evident throughout the grounds. A delicious alacarte breakfast is included... More
