We drove into Little River Inn not expecting there to be any vacancies......thankfully there was! The welcome we got from the ladies on the front desk made us feel like family returning home. The bedroom was exceptionally clean, well decorated / furnished. There was a wide choice of meals on the menu for dinner in the restaurant - which turned... More

Midway through a road trip spent mostly in functional chain hotels, the Little River Inn was an absolute delight. Not least because our room opened onto a lovely decking area, which looked straight out to the ocean just a few yards away. After a busy day (which I know most people who stay here won't have had), being able to... More

This isn't an inexpensive motel by any means, more like little cottages, especially if you travel with your pet. They have wood burning fireplaces, a small kitchenette, decks, spectacular ocean views from many of the units and very friendly staff. You can take a private path over to Van Damn Park and take walks and hikes from there, or scoot... More

Little River Inn is by far one of the best hotels on the entire West Coast. We had not been at Little River for awhile. My wife and I needed a quick get-a-way as we only live 1.5 hours away. The rooms, food and beverages are the best. Good quality products, selection of menu items and very well prepared. The... More

Spent 3 nights last week and it was phenomenal. Since the weather was so beautiful (in the high 60's and sunny) that added to it. The rooms like right out onto the ocean about 200 yards away so the view was exceptional. The rooms were a tiny bit "tired" but it does look like they are doing some renovations. I... More

We arrived just as the sun was going down and we had the perfect sunset over the ocean to enjoy from the deck off our room. The views were fantastic. We loved our extra large room. It was very comfortable and had ample sitting area and lighting for reading and a small bistro table to eat our breakfast at the... More

This is convenient to the town of Mendocino, as well as a couple of excellent restaurants in Albion. About 20 minutes south of Fort Bragg, which is getting better and better. Check out the Pacific Star Winery about 10 miles north of Fort Bragg. The restaurant at the Little River Inn is very good. For less expensive meals you can... More

Wonderful, large inn with beautiful grounds and gardens. I had no real qualms about the stay or decor, but my spouse did with the latter, which is why I gave TLRI 4 stars.

My wife and I have visited many places on the coast of Northern California and the wine country, but without a doubt, Little River Inn is #1. It's true, some of the furnishings are a little dated, but the hospitality is first class, and the views spectacular. Our favorite past time is sitting on the deck, first thing in the... More
