The view is so spectacular that even if the rooms had been average we would have loved it. However room #8 was perfect! The bedding was so comfortable and cozy with high end linens. Wood burning fireplace causes the room to smell like wood smoke, but we even liked that. There is no kitchenette in this one, but more seating in the living. The breakfast was excellent both mornings. Very filling with plenty if choices. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend and return if in that area again.

Absolutely beautiful location. The staff was wonderful, and the spa services were great! Loved the room and everything was set up perfectly. My girlfriend and I had a perfect romantic weekend and we are already planning on going back. I would highly recommend this place to any close friend.

Such a wonderful place to stay! Even though we only stayed one night we were able to relax and soak in the BEAUTIFUL views! The staff is WONDERFULLY friendly & the setting of the cottages couldn't be any nicer! The views to the Pacific Ocean are incredible!!!!!

Room Tip: Spend the extra $$ for the suites on the 2nd floor - the views are incredible!

We've stayed here twice now. Once in December and once in July. It's really the perfect place to stay in Mendocino. Just out of town. Lot's of space in very nice rooms. Friendly people. Truly an amazing view.

Not cheap, but excellent value-- rented cottage #1 with ocean views and sounds of sea below (you are on a cliff across a road that was not too busy when we were there). Wine waiting in the room, kitchen with ocean view for a cozy dinner, and breakfast above and beyond: yogurt parfaits, warm zucchini tarts, chocolate croissants, boiled eggs, all self serve and you can take back to the room. Laid back friendly staff--redwoods a few minutes away. Pretty much cited when we had to leave. Will be back!!!

We spent three nights at the Sea Rock Inn and loved it. The views are spectacular, and the staff was incredibly welcoming. They helped us to book restaurants and excursions, provided excellent recommendations for what to do in the area, and even helped to sort out a hiccup that arose with one of the activities we planned.. We liked our cabin (in fairness, we go for rustic -- though it did not really lack for comfort), and did not really notice any noise from Highway 1. The breakfasts were awesome (lots of fresh baked goodies for a local bakery, homemade yogurt parfaits and tons of fruit).

This was our first time in Mendo, but we have spent a fair amount of time in similar destinations, and our experience with this B&B ranked near the top. We usually don't mind paying a bit extra for places to stay, but are very focused on value, and came away from this experience feeling completely satisfied.

Room Tip: Cabin 3 is a little less expensive, and still has ocean views.

We stayed 3 nights at the Sea Rock Inn over the Fourth of July. We live in Napa, know Mendocino well and knew what to expect regarding the ever changing weather. However, regarding the Inn itself:
We paid $265. night and, in retrospect, the website pics are accurate, however, they're nicely touched-up, if you will, and overly compliment the pricy Inn -
1) Cottage 10 is tired, worn and, even tho it's a beachy location, we expected not so shabby.
Mendocino has lots of choices.
2) The windows do not have screens so if you want 'fresh ocean air' leaving them open can mean flies, etc., and, of course, this couldn't be done when one is away.
3) Little things like - the shower floor is very slippery, the towels had huge amounts of lint and the Keurig coffee table/refrig area had no trash basket for stuff. Only trash is up in the bathroom.
4) Our last day we woke to NO water. The units water tank had drained/broken. The management was cavalier, almost as tho they couldn't give a hoot, told up to use the bathroom in the Spa up the hill. However, in the meantime, that meant no coffee, no sanitation, I wear contacts so no fun, etc., etc., everyone knows that a home without water for even an hour is a mess. No shower, no getting a 'clean jump on the day', so to speak. The Spa is a block walk-up-the-hill so one had to walk in their robe in front of other guests.
Yikes, not what we expected for $265. a night.
PS It's not a bottle but 1/2 bottle.

Room Tip: Check it out before you stay.

Thank you for reviewing our inn. We certainly take all the feedback into consideration because we want to make sure that everyone has a great stay.
1) Cottage #10 was recently photographed in April of this year 2014 and the I’m glad you agree the web pictures are accurate. Not much has changed. It does have a knotty pine ceiling and lodge pole trim which is unique to the inn.
2) We do have screens for the windows. Our guests do remove them so they may see a clear view of the ocean.
3) I agree an additional trash basket would be more convenient than the one in the bath.

Lastly, I am so sorry I did not get to speak with you during your stay or at check out as I had expected. Unfortunately the hot water heater for your cottage did fail so we had to turn the water off as not to flood the room. I was extremely apologetic to the gentleman when asked about the not having water in the cottage. He said he had bottled water for the Keurig coffee maker. I am sorry he relayed to you that I was cavalier. The only alternate bathroom and shower we had to offer the morning of your departure on a busy 4th of July weekend was in our spa facility in the deluxe accommodations.
Yes, we do offer split bottle of complimentary Husch wine upon arrival.
Please accept our sincere apologies.
