The Inn at Schoolhouse Creek, Little River
Housekeeping every other day is no good
When I spend $250 a night, I expect the bed to be remade, room tidied, and towels changed. In the name of being green, this inn doesn't do that every day. The cottage is quaint and the staff friendly, but when I asked for fresh towels, I got them, while leaving the old towels on the floor still laying there! $500 for no service! Instead of drapes we had shower curtains you could see through. Luckily we had an isolated setting so privacy was ok, I think. The readtaurant was fantastic with great food and good staff. Maybe I am being too harsh but the econo service obviously bugged me.

Got there and no one at office even though they say they are open until 7 pm. "Ocean View" was horrible. Had to look through many power lines to see ocean long ways away. Had to call "only if needed" number for someone to come light pilot light on heater. Had family with kids next door who decided to stay very active until almost midnight. Very loud through the thin walls. Was to get breakfast in our cottage but found out restaurant was closed on Tuesdays the day we were there. We cut our stay short and were refunded the balance of our stay. They apologized.

Second time staying here. Lovely area, friendly staff and great breakfast. Each cottage has its own personality and decor. Most can view the sea and peaceful at night to sip wine and watch sunsets or enjoy watching the chipmunks and rabbits run by. Good location to access Mendocino or wine country or just tour the wonderful scenic landscape of the coast
