Great staff and view was much better than posted on there website. We also lucked out with some of the best weather to enjoy some wonderful sunsets. I would highly recommend this piece of heaven to anyone that is looking for a nice getaway weekend with a love one.

The Sea Rock Inn is often referred to as a 'romantic couple's' property. We do have intimate individual cottages, fireplaces, private decks and a spa that all add up to a very cozy romantic weekend. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and thank you for your 5 Star recommendation.

Sat on the porch for unobstructed view of the smashing bashing waves across the road. When it got cold, we moved inside to easy chairs positioned with the same view. Gas fire, complimentary wine, DVDs at no charge [some featuring Mendocino in them.] But best of all, we were greeted by people who were delighted to have us there, who chatted with us as much or as little as we wished. Am dreaming of a return visit for several days.

Of course we are delighted to have you with us! We love sharing our little piece of heaven! AND, a great description of winter wave action on the Mendocino Coast! Smashing and bashing! From the mountains to the ocean....what a contrast. Thank you for your wonderful comments and Five Star rating. We would love to see you again!

My husband and I have stayed here twice in the last 3 or 4 years and it has been a great experience each time. I would say part of your visit to Mendocino should be a little down time at this resort if you are staying here. It's a lovely property to sit in a chair and stare at the ocean. Rooms are comfortable and cozy. We stayed in cottage #1 this time and now we're spoiled! Being able to sit up in bed and see the ocean first thing in the morning was worth every penny! Breakfasts are more food & variety than you can ask for. If you don't like sitting with the other guests, they have trays and you can take the food back to your room. I received a massage in their on-site treatment room and then just walked back to my room in my comfy robe and hung out on the porch. Simply devine!

What a "simply divine" review of your stay with us! Cottage #1 is one of the favorites as it does afford a picture perfect wake up view. What better scene to wake up to than the expansive ocean in front of your window! We are so glad you took advantage of the spa services to help you relax during your stay. Thank you for coming to see us again and the 5 Star comments!

We have visited the Mendocino area many times over the years staying in different B&Bs' but for some reason never stayed at the Sea Rock Inn, which turns out to have been a big mistake on our part. It will now be our first choice in trying to get accommodations in Mendocino. Why, you ask. Because the genuine beauty of the people and setting are a real treat in today's world. Susie and Linda were very pleasant and, although busy, never made us feel ill at ease and were always eager to help or please. The view is one of the best because, from most rooms, one can view the coast line and the Mendocino headlands. We feel it is one of the best values in the area.

Room Tip: Most rooms and cottages have views. We stayed in cottage number 2 that didn't have the views the...

What a lovely review; thank you very much! And thank you for making the Sea Rock Inn your first choice of Mendocino lodging. As I look out of the breakfast room window I am blessed with a view beyond words on this absolutely gorgeous day. It is such a joy to be able to share this awesome panarama with our guests!

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!

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.
