“Great stay!”
Reviewed 27 March 2013

Loved our stay at the Gualala Country Inn and we'll be back! This is a great place to get away and relax. We enjoyed spending time in our room watching the beautiful ocean. In the morning they serve nice spread of breakfast items in the lobby (this was really helpful when traveling with a family) . The staff was really helpful and very accommodating.

I had room 101; 2 queen beds and corner gas fireplace. Window faced the highway and ocean beyond. It was musty, WAY outdated, corny decor (think 1980's crafty themes) and worn out carpet. Bathroom had toddler sized toilet, 1 sink in stained fiberglass and toilet paper that felt like sand. I sneezed often because of smell. I realize this is out of the city but in my opinion, it missed all the basic comforts. Lobby was full of yard sale nick knacks covering the floor. This is California; we should get a decent cup of coffee. Nope, for "breakfast" the offering was COSTCO muffins, lousy carafe coffee with powdered creamer, oranges and apples with the sticker still on it. All this for just $150.00 a night!!

Room Tip: Ask for 2 sinks, a regular size toilet, and the most updated room they have.

Mike B, Owner at Gualala Country Inn, responded to this review, 23 March 2013
First I want to express my concerns that you had an unpleasant experience while at our Inn, I wish I had been told this, while you were here. We would have tried to resolve things at that time. Your review has caught me by surprise, because almost everything you found as bad, others tell me is a plus. I will take to heart your comment about the children’s corner as “yard sale nic nacs”, and change it.
We advertise a Continental Breakfast, we do not advertise hot cooked. There are pictures of it, online, and with most online booking companies. The breakfast is even more extensive than our pictures show. Muffins, bagels & cream cheese, croissants, boiled eggs, yogurt, instant oatmeal, whole grain & gluten free breads, three types of fresh fruits, juice and a choice of 15 plus Stash Teas. Coffee & hot water in thermal Airpots is an industry standard. We always have three choices of creamers, individual serve liquid half & half or French vanilla & yes, a powdered creamer also. Your dislike of “Costco”, products has me puzzled. Others love and compliment it, saying it was the best they have had on their trip.
Our toilets are standard height; however, we are in the process of upgrading all of them to elongated, handicap height toilets. Our rooms are individually decorated with some antiques. We do not have cold, modern, cookie cutter rooms.
When you book rooms on line; lodging properties pay 10% to 20% booking fees to online booking companies. Our control of what rate structure they choose to show or charge you is minimal. Your reservation was an online booking by the price you indicate you paid. Booking in person, or over the phone, we can describe what you are getting and adjust rates, depending on seasons and availability. With that said, if I had been informed the room odor was unpleasant or not clean, I would have moved you immediately. We strive to keep our rooms clean, fresh, well maintained & ventilated; normally we are very successful at this. I am sorry we failed to fulfill your expectations. Your review has made me aware, I have to be even more vigilant in making sure we do not disappoint others.

The Gualala Country Inn gives a great first impression. A charming yellow and white old style house across the street from the Pacific Ocean. It looks like it's going to be something special. When in fact, it's just ordinary. The rooms are pretty standard hotel fare, with an attempt at charm. The corner gas fireplace is a nice touch,, and the bedroom is large, , but the carpets are worn and dirty looking (although probably not dirty...just looks that way). Once inside the room, you could easily be in a standard motel room.

A decent continental breakfast comes with the stay. Standard fare again....in a lobby that once again could be charming, but just feels worn.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the rooms with a view. Otherwise, your stay inside the room could border on the de...

Quite a classy place. The view, free wifi, awesome breakfast, and even local tourist info was absolutely charming. If I ever pass through Gualala again, this place is absolutely my choice again. Plus, it was less expensive than I thought it would be. Very budget-friendly.

We stay 3 days in room 102 which had a King size bed with an ocean view. The Inn is pet friendly with a very reasonable pet charge. $10 per stay! The room was clean and cozy. We enjoyed the fireplace at night. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.

After Mermaidfest My partner and pug and i decided to just drive and take our chance on a room in Gualala . First place you come to is The Gualala Country Inn. We were tired and needed a Spa Room that allowed dogs. These people were so accommodating!!! The room so purrrrfect . View amazing for being on opposite side of the road to ocean front. Walking distance from everything you might need. Incredible breakfast buffet. I was thrilled with beach access. The price incredible!

Room Tip: Just go there

Gualalla was a blast. Beautiful weekend in the woods on the Pacific Ocean. Great town with nice people.

The hotel was centrally located and reasonably priced. The room seemed pretty small but was nice enough. Amazing views across the street of the ocean. Too bad there is no deck on the room to enjoy the ocean and river view.
