Sweetwater Spa is charming in a 70's Mendocino sort of way. We booked an hour in the private hot tub and sauna suite. We enjoyed the charm of the outdoor hot tub and shower and the sauna was delicous, but the place could use a serious upgrade. The shower barely worked, and the tile and redwood was old and fusty....

The water, is, indeed sweet. We went to the public tub. Facility was clean - there was no privacy, clothing optional. Nobody opted to wear clothing. I'm glad I didn't go all body conscious and wear a suit - THAT would've felt weird. The other patrons were young, backpacker-type people, well travelled, with lots of experiences of faraway places to...

We booked the O'hana House thru Sweetwater Rentals. We chose to stay in the country for an easy access to all Mendocino County has to offer. 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a kitchen fit for a gourmet chef, what a stove!! Large living room with comfy furniture...outdoor fun patio with shower and hot tub. We wanted for nothing. Even with...

We were so happy to host you for a few days, so thank you for making us a part of your family's California getaway last month. We're particularly pleased to see that everyone really got to spend some quality time outside -- just another reminder how lucky we are to be around all this nature! We'll be looking forward to...

The private spa room provided a great romantic night bathing in the outdoors. Very simple, cosy layout that warmed and relaxed our bodies for a comfortable nights sleep. Good atmosphere in the public spa area too

This review is for the hot tubs and massage services at Sweetwater. Have been coming to this lovely hidden hot tub and spa location for years. The tubs are always clean, private and cozy, the settings lovely, with flowering vines crawling over weather redwood. Some have toilets and saunas attached. Rates are very reasonable. The communal hot tub is a...

Sweetwater is a collection of cottages and towers in Mendocino. We have now stayed at two towers - the Sears and Sweetwater. Both have points to recommend them - Sears is spacious and has a galley kitchen and mini-fridge; Sweetwater shares the bathroom with the communal hot tub from noon-9pm, but then has full access to the sauna, spa, and...

A friend and I stayed here in the Sears Tower primarily because of the separate bedroom areas. Although one is right off the main living space, it worked well for us. The other bedroom is up a spiral staircase. There is not a TV upstairs so if you want to be able to watch TV in bed, this is not...

What a great review! Your feedback is so helpful! We are very grateful and glad that you found the Sears Tower suitable for your lodging needs. We will consider putting a second television upstairs as others have mentioned it. You might want to book a private tub next time to enjoy the spa. Thanks again for taking time to share...

My wife and I have stayed at the Sweetwater Inn and Spa twice, both times in the Sweetwater Tower. I'll tell a bit about both stays. 1) I have lived in Mendocino County 30 years and just found this place in June 2014 and was so blessed. It's nestled in the middle of Mendocino and a hop and skip to...

Three of us stayed two nights in the Redwood Tower of Sweetwater Inn, and found it one of the most comfortable, clean, centrally-located, charming, and well-run hotels ever.
