We had dinner at the restaurant both nights we stayed at the Inn. The meals were delicious as were the desserts. The staff was excellent and made us feel very welcome. The breakfasts were also excellent-especially the muffins. I could have been satisfied with just two of those. Can't go wrong if you choose this fine restaurant

Arriving after a long day, I was a bit shocked by the price.(Just shy of $400) Coming from the south, and never having been here before, I inquired of the front desk lady ''Are there other hotels nearby, perhaps up the road a bit ?''. Oh, nothing till Fort Bragg. Ok it's getting dark, 20 more miles~~~on a winding foggy... More

This appears to be another Inn, not Albion River Inn. The writer mentions that dinner was included and no tipping allowed. Dinner is not included in the lodging price at Albion River Inn and tipping is definitely allowed. Also we have phone service and Wifi among other differences. Also we NEVER rip anyone off.

Just finished dinner and talking story with fellow Irishman and owner Flurry Healy. As always food, service and ambience are heavenly, including the "angel's envy" spirits from the bar. };-) 👍

The restaurant is okay. They serve a gourmet popcorn at the bar. They will gladly give you the recipe. Caveat; the bar serves as a kind of local pub and there are characters enough on the coast to not mind too much some very opinionated musings

My husband and I honeymooned here 15 years ago and keep coming back every 5 years. Time and time again Albion River Inn does not disappoint. We especially like Room 8. The price is right because it is below an upper unit. The decor is more to my style since it is appointed with an Asian style as opposed to... More

We've dined at Albion River Inn a few times over the years and are never disappointed. The food is always very good to great, creatively prepared, beautifully presented, and an amazing wine list (and scotches as well). We were here for Thanksgiving dinner, so the place was packed and service was a bit slow. But we were in no hurry,... More

Cabins are beautiful, staff is very friendly. The room comes with a full breakfast at the restaurant which is a short walk from your cabin. Our cabin had a wood burning fireplace and the wood was stocked every morning and the fire was arranged for you to start it as soon as you came back from breakfast. And the room... More

You can hardly ask for a more stunning setting than the Albion River Inn. The staff was friendly and the dining area is lovely. The seafood pasta dish I ate, however, left me feeling a little funny. Maybe I didn't order the right thing off the menu. I can imagine this would be a great place for a wedding or... More

We were staying here, but have on other trips driven to this special place. The views of the sea and lush garden on the cliff top are worth the trip. The restaraunt has huge windows and most tables are positioned along the windows--so there is not a bad table. The food was uneven over several days--ranging from good, but somewhat... More
