My guy and I stayed here for a long weekend following Thanksgiving. The Inn is located just about four miles north of downtown Fort Bragg. Cleone itself contains a small grocery store (just down the block from the Inn) and a Mexican restaurant (we didn't try it - but it looked promising). You will have to drive into Fort Bragg to access coffee shops and restaurants (but it's a short and lovely drive). It is also a very short drive (longer walk) to the beautiful beaches.
The Inn itself is in right on Route 1 - which is great for getting on and off the highway for excursions south to Fort Bragg and Mendocino - as well as north for some great hiking in the Redwoods.
Our room was facing the lovely garden - where you will find an outdoor hot tub (which was very clean and located in a tranquil setting), some cozy adirondack chairs and even a small little trail (which I would recommend taking early in the morning). We took the trail our last morning there and as we were approaching it saw some deer right outside the Inn.
The room we had was terrific - the bed was comfortable - well-heated for winter - everything was clean - there was a fridge, coffee maker (and coffee), plenty of hangers for our stuff and a great bathroom with a nice shower (great hot water & pressure) - everything we needed was there for a romantic weekend.
If you are a member of the LGBT community - this is a great place for you as well :)
