We tend to visit Little River Inn every year at the beginning of the year. No different in early 2017. You can't beat the view from Little River Inn; the reason we keep returning. We've looked at rooms in other nearby inns but nothing has come close to the views from Little River. The proprietors keep the Inn clean and...

My wife and I spent two nights here this week after braving the torrential rains to get there. The only road open was highway 20. We arrived after lunch were able to get into our room. A very large Ocean View room with a spa and fireplace. The room was very well appointed and clean. The room was on a...

Just needed to get away and chose this little gem for an overnighter. We have eaten in their restaurant before and was never disappointed so decided to stay in the hotel. The front desk staff were very friendly and knowledgable about the area and very accomodating. We were given a traditional oceanview room and were not disappointed. Rooms are spacious...

We stayed two nights, in a room in a cottage with a lovely ocean view. A large room with two beds, a gas fireplace (very welcome in December) and a nice bath (with a strangely child-sized toilet, however). The beds were very comfortable, housekeeping very good. We ate one dinner and two breakfasts in the restaurant, which was beautifully decorated...

Stayed here for 1 night and hope we can come back to stay a bit longer. We got one of the pet friendly cottages. We absolutely loved it. It had a gas fireplace and the shower also was a steam room. We ate at the restaurant and the food was really good. The only thing that was a bit irritating...

Decided to try the Little River Inn restaurant for breakfast. The hostess asked us which dining room we wanted to sit in -- garden or ocean view? We chose the ocean view and what a view it is. We had a very nice breakfast with eggs, ham and the best hash browns, done to perfection. Because we liked the breakfast...

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...
