“Wonderful Inn on the Water”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

My wife and I recently sayed at the Sea Rock Inn and couldn't have been more pleased. The property is very well maintained and the room was immaculate. Breakfast each day was great and we always left well fed. The view from the property is breathtaking and provides for a great place to see the sunset. The staff is also very friendly and super helpful at providing suggestions for things to do and where to eat.

I would highly recommend this inn to anyone who is planning to stay in the Mendocino area. The location is perfect.

Room Tip: We stayed in Cottage 2 and it was cozy and warm.

Thank you for the wonderful review, our guest from New Your City! We love to receive photos that our guests have taken during their stay and the pictures from your cottage #2 are great! Even our most reasonable accommodations have fantastic views of the ocean. Your recommendation to our prospective guests is very much appreciated.

I whisked my husband off on a surprise getaway to Mendocino. I didn't have any idea where to stay, so I checked online. I chose the Sea Rock Inn because I liked what I read in the reviews from guests who had stayed there. We were not disappointed! The inn sits across the street from the ocean, and provides bench sitting on the bluff along with various chair seating options on the property. We also had a view from the window of our cottage. Our room was very clean and we were provided with fluffy robes, a Keurig coffeemaker, complimentary wine. a flat screen TV/DVD, and gas log stove. The staff were all very friendly and pleasant, and were happy to provide us with tips on places to eat and visit. The breakfast was made up of many different selections, and obviously provided for those who like to eat healthy! The grounds of the inn are very well maintained and the succulents/flowers are incredible. We will definitely recommend the Sea Rock Inn to our friends ... and you too!

Room Tip: Cost of the room is directly tied to view available. The more expensive rooms have amazing views, b...

We stayed here for three nights as the final destination on our driving trip of the west coast. We enjoyed our stay here immensely. We chose Cottage #3 as it was the most economical option but it did not feel like we had chosen the poor cousin - we loved the cottage. While 'cosy', it had more than enough space for us, although a curtain or doors on the storage space would have let us keep our clutter out of sight. Although the view from the porch was not unobscured we were able to sit on the lawn in the comfortable chairs provided if we wanted the full panorama. We really enjoyed breakfast as there was a great range of food provided and we loved watching the ocean from one of the tables. The Inn also provides a good range of movies for you to watch and we took advantage of this in the evenings. We also found Linda particularly helpful and friendly. The other thing we were very happy about was that we had chosen Mendocino itself which we found particularly charming. Some reviews have cited Fort Bragg as a more affordable alternative and while this might be so in our opinion it was not nearly as lovely as Mendocino.

Room Tip: Cottage 3 (or 2) is a very good choice if you want to stay at this fantastic Inn and save a bit of m...

A great big thanks to our guests from Sydney, Australia for the wonderful review! We are always so happy to hear about how our 'out of country' travelers enjoy their stay at the Sea Rock Inn. Mendocino is unique and charming and always a hit with those who risk a visit to such a small destination. The quaint shops, fabulous restaurants and of course the coastal views and atmosphere never fail to impress.

My wife and I stopped here along the pacific coast portion of our road trip. We booked our stay solely based on the TripAdvisor reviews and the information on Sea Rock Inn's website - everything is as represented online.

The personnel at the Sea Rock Inn are very friendly and helpful. Can't say enough about the interaction with everyone and how much that added to our overall impression & experience. Dinner recommendations were spot on. We choose and had a great experience at Cafe Beaujolais in town. The breakfast offering had a variety of fresh and very tasty choices - was nice to be able to interact directly the individual who prepared the food as we have some items we try to avoid.

The property and grounds are well maintained and each room comes with an allocated parking spot nearby. The property is situated on a hill/bluff between CA-1 and a shoreline street that make for easy access. As other reviewers have stated, the rooms are very clean with fresh linens and updated. We thoroughly enjoyed the views from outside in the common sitting area for sunset with beverage in hand; utilized the lower sitting area for an extra cup of coffee in the morning.

We stayed only one night on this exploratory stop in one of the small cabins ( #2) which was an excellent introduction to the Sea Rock Inn & Mendocino. We plan.to stay at the inn when we return for a longer visit. Highly recommend!

It is so nice to know what specific amenities our guests favor as we try to provide something for everyone. Cottage #2 is so cozy for just a stop over as it is reasonable but yet provides all one needs for comfort. The view from the deck is as spectacular as anywhere on the property. We do have roomier cottages and rooms for a more lengthy stay as indicated on our website. We have worked really hard on the website to provide an accurate representation of the property and are glad that we have accomplished our goal. Thank you for taking the time to let us know what you liked about the Sea Rock and the great rating!

The Sea Rock Inn was such a pleasant surprise. We stayed in Cabin #6 and were delighted by the thoughtfulness of its design and amenities. The staff were warm and welcoming as well. But the best thing about the Sea Rock is that it is literally a 5-7 min walk to the Mendocino Headlands and a 10-12 minute walk from town. We loved being able to explore on foot right outside our door. Wouldn't change a thing!

One of the many nice things about staying at the Sea Rock Inn is that the property is very centrally located to where one can walk to cliffs, forests, the river and the village. I'm glad you were pleasantly surprised-----we love to catch our guests off guard with our view, service and
