“A terrific find”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Real character, the friendliest possible service and an authentic rustic charm throughout. We were hugely impressed by the small touches in our cosy cottage, and the delicious home baking at breakfast.

What a sweet review from our guest who comes from the UK where Bed and Breakfasts originated. It was a pleasure to host a visit from you!

The most exquisite sight right from your bed...the Pacific Ocean. Amazing sunsets! Wonderful friendly hosts, delicious breakfasts, wonderful places to sit and just relax and take in the views of the ocean have been created by the owners...this is the best Bed and Breakfast with a a full kitchen we have ever stayed in! Very clean, quite and comfortable! The bedding was amazing...in fact so amazing you won't want to get up! The location of SEA ROCK is so close to downtown Mendocino you can walk, and we did! It's a very short ride to Fort Bragg as well...I highly recommend SEA ROCK INN for anyone who wants to escape from daily life.....the beauty of the ocean and the sounds of the waves...paradise.

Room Tip: Room #1...with a full kitchen, called the "Family Suite"...right in front...nothing in the...

You didn't even have to mention the number of your accommodation to know that your description of waking up to the view placed you in one of our most popular cottages, #1. With the bed facing the ocean view, snuggly down feather bed mattresses and pillows who would want to get up?! The kitchen is a nice addition to this cottage as it affords the choice of eating out or dining in :) Thank you so much for your 5 Star review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay!

Our friends from Toronto, my husband and I spent two nights at the Inn and were very impressed. We thought it was a new property because of it's clean, updated look with all of the amenities, but it appears we just never knew about it. We will be back. We stayed in two cottages that looked out at the ocean from their front porches. There was a great bottle of wine in our room when we arrived. The breakfasts were great, too. We would highly recommend this property.

After a long drive northward, we came around the corner of Agate Cove on the Mendocino Coast....the waves were splashing and the scene was absolutely breathtaking! We checked into Sea Rock Bed & Breakfast Inn, stayed for two nights, and enjoyed that exact panoramic view from our suite there. Not just the view, but EVERYTHING about our stay was so special. We felt pampered in every way....TOPS on our list of places to stay! I have celiac disease, so eating when we travel can be challenging. However, at breakfast I was able to enjoy a special gluten free granola, as well as gluten free quiche. We received great suggestions on places to see in Mendocino, as well as lunch/dinner restaurants. Don't miss going to Big River Beach....enjoy wandering on a wide sandy, driftwood-scattered beach.

Room Tip: My husband and I were very happy with our Junior Suite. We didn't need a kitchen for the 2 days...

Pampering is our specialty here at the Sea Rock Inn! We are so glad that you felt special and that we were able to accommodate your needs at breakfast. We do try to make sure there is at least one item that would suit a special diet at all times. Thank you for your kind words and the 5 Star review!

We ended up staying here at the last minute, since the other inn that we had booked was not very clean. By the time we found Sea Rock Inn it was dark out and we were very tired after a long day of traveling.

What a pleasant surprise when we awoke in the morning to the most incredible view of the ocean we could have imagined!

Thank you to Linda and everyone at Sea Rock Inn for making a potentially disastrous stay in Mendocino a wonderful experience. We really enjoyed the Inn and the entire area. The Inn was very clean and well appointed. Breakfast was simple but delicious with locally made pastries and quiches. And, as I mentioned, the view cannot be beat!

We are so glad that we were able to accommodate you at our Inn, avoiding a potentially disappointing experience after a long day of travel. Many of our guests are soooo pleasantly surprised to wake up to the beauty of the ocean after arriving during the dark of evening! Thank you for your 5 Star review; it means a lot to us especially from such discerning travelers as yourselves.

This was probably our best stop on our trip up the coast (and we stayed in 9 different hotels). This wonderful B&B in Mendocino has fantastic views of the ocean and is close to downtown Mendocino. The front office staff were all friendly and welcoming. The room was well furnished and very comfortable. We melted into those beds - soooo comfy. I thnk it was the best night's sleep we had on our entire trip. Get a balcony if you can - worth every penny for the view. And the breakfast was as good as everyone else posts on this website. All homemade and local - which is what we were hoping to experience on our trip. We'll be back for a longer stay next year for sure!

Room Tip: Get a balcony if you can. Room #17 had a great view from our balcony!

Wow, to be placed at the top of 9 different stays is quite an honor! Thank you for your generous review. It is so important to get a good night's sleep when on the road; it makes a trip so much more enjoyable. So glad you were able to snuggle into your bed here at the Inn and experience sweet dreams! We look forward to hosting a longer stay for you next visit!

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in early Sept 2013 @ the start of our trip to N. California.
We had Cabin no 6 which we loved.
Have to say it was a delightful experience and very hard to fault in anyway.
The cabins are on the small side but very well appointed and immaculately maintained. All the staff we had dealings with were just great.
Breakfast was a buffet style set up (fruit/cereals/bagels/muffins/toast etc plus a couple of daily hot options) and suited us perfectly - for those who want the full bacon/eggs etc etc it may not tick the box - but as I said, for us it was great.
The setting is brilliant with great views across the ocean to Mendocino headlands.
Mendocino is a great little town with all the facilities you could possibly need - and a good base for exploring this part of the Cal coast.
Cons?
Well being picky - it was little further out of town than I'd anticipated - would be a 20-25 mins walk to the restaurants etc in town - and along an unlit road (not busy though) - so for those who like a bottle of wine with dinner (that's us!) could be a slight issue.

Other than that I couldn't fault it - compared to other places we stayed I think the pricing was good for what we got.
Highly recommended.

Thank you, United Kingdom guest, for your warm comments and kind review of the Sea Rock Inn. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us as we are always excited to get 'overseas' guests and be able to share our Pacific Coast and surrounding area with you.

Our location on the north edge of town is what affords our guests the most spectacular of views. The road into town is rural and unlit at night so we really try to advise our guests not walk it 'after hours'. It is only a one minute drive to the center of the village so no great inconvenience to drive.
