“Fabulous views”
Reviewed 6 December 2011

This Inn just south of Mendocino, CA, was a good choice for 2 nights and sightseeing in this area. Like most of the Inns/B&Bs in this coastal area, it has been there for many years. The spectacular view is certainly a main reason for choosing it, can't be beat. The accommodations are spread out along the cliff line with the views in glorious sight from the patios and sliding glass doors. They are very clean. The majority of accommodations have either a gas or wood fireplace, the rooms are cozy and cottage-like. Perhaps there could be some updating with the heating system (which is noisy), but the beds are new and comfortable as was the rest of the furniture in our Room #7. Their website gives a true description of the rooms. A restaurant is located on the property and breakfast is included for ARI guests and it is open to the public for dinner. For a Saturday night in late November, it was plenty busy. Staff is very pleasant and want everything to be perfect. My cell service was spotty in the area and there is Wi-fi available (a bit slow) in your room. No televisions are available in the accommodations, a fact they make perfectly clear on their website. It was lovely not to have them, in my personal opinion.

Great views from our own porch. The restaurant is accommodating for special diets including dinner and breakfast. We will be back time and time again.

Room Tip: The gas stoves are better than the wood stoves.

This was our third trip to Albion River Inn & we had friends that had not been there before. The views fro our room were spectacular. The food at the restaurant was excellent, as was the service. I would recommend Albion River Inn to anyone wanting to see the beautiful scenery and enjoy some gourmet dinners with exceptional wine choices.

The Albion River Inn just south of Mendocino, CA has spectacular views of the coast, charming and very clean accommodations and a gourmet restaurant featuring local wines, fresh fish and organic vegetables. After a smooth check-in, we enjoyed the ocean's roar and gorgeous view along with a complimentary bottle of wine on our private patio. Dinner was divine, the bed comfy and delicious breakfast the next morning was included. The staff made excellent recommendations on nearby sites of interest, including several state parks, light houses and the Botanical Gardens with coastal walking trails. We hope to return with friends and family!

Room Tip: Our room was one of the least expensive but was perfect for us.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary. The rooms were cozy, the view outstanding and the restaurant exceptional. They provided a nice gift basket for us in celebration of our 25 years of marriage. I cannot recommend this place enough. Oh and by the way, the view is pretty darn nice too!
