This was not an impressive inn on the outside, but the views from every location were amazing! We enjoyed a good nights sleep because the bed was incredible, much to do with the sheets. Were they starched or pressed? Breakfast fare was fair and Internet unreliable.

Very spacious and comfortable rooms with nice views. Charmingly designed. Clean and spacious bathroom. Nice electric fire for both lighting and heat. Friendly staff, who gave us a great dinner recommendation (the local casino's dining room), given the holiday period. Located near the shore, so open a window and listen to the sea while you sleep. Biggest downside is the...

Stayed here for 2 nights after Thanksgiving weekend. We were able to check in early, our room was clean and spacious. "Eco-friendly fireplace" translates to a heater with a flame, but the ambiance of it was ok enough to get over the lack of a real fire. The in room jacuzzi tub was darling. We kept the balcony door open...

Room is dated and as cold as a meat locker. We arrived over 30 minutes ago and the Electric fireplace is not making a dent in the temperature. The furniture is worn - the desk I am sitting at looks like a flea market find. The Electric fireplace is about 6 inches from the wall and there is trash and...

The Inn is a bit remote on this small cove away from Point Arena (though, there's very little to Point Arena). We had a very nice stay and the place is pretty cool. The Inn is up a hill from the water and pier area. It's a place that appears to suffer from the salt air but also it looked...
