We've been coming here for over 20 years and love the location and beautiful views! The onsite restaurant is outstanding! We had Thanksgiving dinner here this year and everything was cooked perfectly. Thank you to all the staff for another great experience. We will be back in 2017.

We arrived at the Little River Inn after a three-hour drive through rain that was torrential in places. There was a sign in the bathroom about conserving water because northern California was experiencing a drought which did not seem to measure up with the deluge outside. However shortly after we arrived, the rain stopped and we were treated to a... More

Our family had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner at the inn. It was a lively crowd and service was a bit spotty at times but the servers really cared about making it a nice dinner. The food was excellent especially the soup and the traditional turkey dinner. We are truly thankful we had our holiday dinner here.

A real home from home. On arrival, the first impression is, "What a lovely setting". Reception is efficient and welcoming. Our room is on the second floor above the reception, giving a view of the ocean from the comfort of two swivel armchairs. For eating you have the choice of the restaurant or a bar menu. Both are excellent. As... More

If you want the flavor of the rugged northern ca coast this is the spot. You can get a cottage type room with rustic fire place or you can upgrade to a more modern room with a jacuzzi and your own deck with a beautiful view of the ocean. The restaurant has a great chef and the food is great.... More

We stayed in Rosie's Cottage. Beautiful view of the ocean. Sat in the hot tub with some wine. Had dinner in the wonderful restaurant. Excellant service and food. Had a fantastic time. Only thing I might say is we could have used a microwave. but the room was absolutely clean and lovely.

Fantastic hotel with some of the best ocean views on the Northern California Coast. Recently stayed there for our 35th wedding anniversary. Since it was a special occasion we booked the Coombs Cottage. The standalone cottage is across the highway on the cliffs overlooking the ocean. Fantastic room! – Large semi private wooden deck with a hot tub and some... More

My husband and i stayed here for 1 night on a trip from Oregon to San Francisco. Our only regret was that we didn't book 2 nights!
