We enjoyed staying at the Ohana House which had 3 bedrooms accommodating my husband and I plus 2 daughters and one boyfriend. We had our own hot tub and fireplace-full equipped kitchen so we were able to prepare dinner at home one night and then enjoyed a magical dinner at the Albion River Inn the other night. It was very...

We stayed in the "Sears Tower" and it was interesting. The kitchenette was really tight, the shower was cramped and the down stairs bed shoved against the wall, so you had one exit. Had a closet but no bureau, so we lived out of our luggage. The upstairs loft room was much more charming, but we let our daughter have...

Nice place. Location wise very convenient, close to sea and downtown. The staff was ok, rooms are clean. All in all, worthy of getting a 3. The spa and the hot tub was one of the attractions, but when we went there we found that the main spa has been lent to the locals for some events. Although, the staff...

We really enjoyed our stay at Sweetwater Inn in Mendocino this March. Everything you need is provided, and the grocery store is a short 2 blocks away. We could only go rooftop once because of the rain this time of the year, and we were able to take a few pictures of the stunning view of the ocean and town....

Built in 1872, the Sweetwater Tower was lovingly reconstructed in 1983, creating one of Mendocino's most unique accommodations. This sunny and private room is prized by those seeking romance and renewal. The downstairs bathroom and spa area which is shared with other spa guests from the hours of 11 am to 10:00 PM is private after hours and mornings. Robes...

Mendocino was a pleasant surprise. A beautiful town by amazing coastline. The Sweetwater is a lovely inn with ocean views within walking distance to the town centre. The staff were very nice, especially Diana who was lovely. The spa tub was wonderful, great for a relaxing (naked) soak. I could've stayed for a week. The breakfast muffins are a delicious...

We had a great time at the Sweetwater Inn. We were in the garden cottage, a room with a private garden and a private hot tub. The room was exactly as described in the web site and if the bathroom was a little small, the garden and the hot tub more than compensated. We used the complimentary spa both days...

This was my third visit to Sweetwater and it's starting to feel like home. We so enjoyed our stay in the water tower (our usual room). A pleasant surprise was the lovely remodel of the spa area and especially the indoor facilities. The room is always clean and comfortable. Another new surprise was the delivery of warm baked goods to...
