Low Key Inn Near the Sea
Posted Sep 6, 2016
This is the second time I've stayed at the Gualala Country Inn and it was as low key and pleasant as before. The location is ideal -- literally a few yards off hwy one and across the street from the ocean. It is definitely the best option in the Mendocino area for the price, particularly for holiday/summer weekends -- high demand times, and particularly if you are bringing your dog and don't want to pay a fortune for it. The hotel is older, and needs some renovations and minor room fixes (missing hook on the bathroom door, etc.) but they do the best with what they have -- it is very clean and the front desk staff pleasant. Light breakfast has decent quality muffins, bagels, etc. though we wish the coffee were better, and that they used environmentally friendly cups (paper) instead of styrofoam -- we used our own mugs. The Gualala Bluff Trail, shops, restaurants, great supermarket for local goods, all within easy walking distance.
