We stayed in the Drew suite. It's a big room and with a very nice view on the beach. But the room really needs a serious update - it felt like it was furbished in the 70s and then only minor repairs had been made. It's not about the "style", but rather about keeping it in good shape...and not everything...

It's kinda hard to find the tiny little village of ELK, CA on a map, but once you visit the area and discover Elk you will never forget you were there! Once you experience the stunning beauty of its unique and awe-inspiring coastline and visit the village with its simple, yet elegant ambiance, you will want to spread the word,...

I took my wife here for a Valentines getaway. We booked the suite that had large bay windows that overlooked the ocean with a big rock off the beach. I don't have anything to complain about. The breakfast they serve is just about as good as it gets, an all you can eat buffet. After which we hiked down to...

It starts with the location... nowhere from nowhere and that's how we like it when we want to get away! My wife and I have been several times. It's not cheap but sometimes you get what you pay for. Elk Cove Inn is one of the sometimes. Beautiful surroundings along the scenic northern California coast. PCH is a treasure to...

We actually had a cabin to ourselves with a huge window that faced the Pacific, despite appearing rustic everything was what you would expect from a nice inn experience, the bed was comfortable, the breakfast all that could be wished for, the people very attentive and helpful. My wife really enjoyed the massage that was her birthday present, you really...

The location is beautiful and it is very clean and well-run by friendly, professional staff. And the breakfast is really good. The views are breathtaking. We stayed in a cottage and while it had a certain rustic charm, the cottages all contain two rooms and share extremely thin walls with the neighbors. We could hear conversations, coughing, bathroom noises, footsteps...

My husband and I stayed here with our large breed dog and had a great experience! The walk down to the beach from the Inn was so nice and there was hardly anyone else there, so it was almost like having a private beach. We have a beautiful welcome basket when we arrived and even a dog basket with items...

Staying in Seascape room. Clean and well kept. Gas fireplace pretty and good heat source for room. Good breakfast buffet. Quiet and beautiful location. Very happy I chose Elk Cove Inn. Looked up multiple places and chose this one. Easy access to Mendocino and wine country inland. Staff is friendly, helpful, and not at all annoying. Love it.

My husband and I chose to stay at this little inn because it was located between San Francisco and Mendocino. It was the perfect location traveling up route 1 along the coast. Being from the east coast the vistas were spectacular to see. The moment we pulled into the driveway of The Elk Cove Inn we felt comfortable. The view...
