Made our 25th anniversary dinner request online. They had a beautiful table waiting for us by the window to enjoy the sunset views. Jennifer B was a wonderful server. The claim chowder was the best with claims in the shell and made to order! They had a parting gift with a box of truffles. It was a delightful night to...

We visited Mendocino in early April for our anniversary and stayed at the Little River Inn, in the rooms across the street from the hotel overlooking the wild pacific ocean. The room was large and comfortable with a hot tub on the deck looking our over the ocean. Just watching the ocean and changing sky was great. Very quiet, except...

Many times I have passed this beautiful Inn and hoped one day to stay here. This trip, my husband surprised me. The room was wonderful, overlooking the gorgeous view of the sea. The fireplace in the room was an added touch. The gardens were so lovely. Breakfast was great, service was great. We'll be back.

Its hard to find an affordable breakfast in Mendocino. Breakfast here was fast, tasty and affordable...all with your choice of a great garden view or a view of the ocean! Loved the raisin bread too, my new goto breakfast place.

My husband and I have been twice, and each time it's better than the last. We stayed in the bungalows overlooking the water. Amazing view. They have an onsite restaurant and bar. The place is historical, homey and everyone who works there was helpful and nice. They had a lovely cat who came to visit us every day. Our room...

We recently hosted a dinner for family of nine celebrating my decade birthday. We enjoyed cocktails in the bar overlooking the ocean and the servers didn't miss a beat accommodating our large group in a cozy bar. Everyone was happy with their dinner choices from cassoulet to seafood stew. Service in the dining room was warm and polished. It was...

Our first stay at the Little River Inn was during our first year of marriage in 1968. A lot has changed over that time. You no longer register at the bar. They now have TV, phones in the room, and locks on the doors. They don't serve abalone on the menu, but the meals in their wonderful dining room are...

What a perfect way to end our vacation. We hit this place twice both being by accident. The second time was in 2014 after retirement with the 50-State Quest having been completed in 2001. But this review will be the first time 2 decades earlier in May of ((1994 not 2016)) being our anniversary. This was on our way back...

My hubby and I took my mom here for dinner at her recommendation as she lives in the area. The inn restaurant is quite stunning with the small bar area overlooking the sea and the main dining area looking over a beautiful garden. The food was fresh and delicious. We had the Salmon with polenta and creamed spinach and the...
