We were fortunate to be in Jenner on a sunny day and had a nice stop at the Jenner Inn. Each room is different and ours was very large with a great view of the Russian River where it meets the ocean. The place was comfortable and mostly clean, although there were dog hairs in the room. Staff was very...

Our kids rented a 1 bedroom house about 2 blocks away. So they had TV and a kitchen. We basically just needed a place to sleep. The staff were very polite and helpful. The room was clean and freshly painted. It had a nice bed, sofa and a sun room overlooking the Russian River. No TV if you need one...

We had a great 'cabin' with a great view where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean. Great room, comfortable bed, gas fireplace. Staff very helpful. Good continental breakfast but no real restaurant open in town. Saw many seals & sea lions, only a few miles from Sonoma wineries. Great spot for a quiet, restful visit. The Pacific coast is...

We stayed here on our way north from San Francisco. The grey whale cottage was beautiful. It was cold outside but the cottage was warm as we arrived. The restaurant wasn't open so we drove back into Duncan mills to get food which we heated up in the microwave. Tea and coffee provided as well as breakfast. The view was...

Thanks for your comments. The whales and their calves are visible and on the move north, abalone divers are having a good season and seals are swimming by our riverside rooms every morning. Please return soon.

Stayed here in April when everything and I mean everything except the local Gas Station/Market was open. The Jenner Inn itself is advertised on Booking.com as having a bar and restaurant. They forgot to mention it is closed for some of the year. No cell coverage but did have internet. Room itself did not feel very secure. The inn is...

Thank you for your input. We note that there is an ambiguous reference in the details about our restaurant on site. This is where we offer our complimentary continental breakfast for our hotel guests (breads, bagels, jellies and cream cheese, 2 cereals, several yogurt choices, fresh OJ, boiled eggs, fresh fruit and gourmet coffee). We always respond to dinner requests...

My husband and I went there for my birthday celebration and it's my husband's idea to bring me there, wanting to stay at Jenner Inn since this is near to the meeting point of Russian River and the ocean.

The Jenner Inn is a great place to stay. Our room was quite clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the free continental breakfast was nice. The inn is clearly well managed. We went for a weekend away and to check out the wildlife. It was incredible. We saw seals, 2 eagles, several deer, river otters, and a whale!...

The Jenner Inn is only a few feet off the pacific Coast Highway, where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean - awesome setting, very relaxing. The inn has cabins and cottages right on the banks of the river with a wonderful view of the ocean.

Ms. Fowler, The condition of the property you describe was under prior ownership, more than a year ago. We did not witness the conditions at the time of your stay, but it is certainly not what our guests encounter today. We have made extensive renovations and amenity improvements. We did appreciate you wanting to return to the property. New ownership...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
NEW OWNERSHIP AS OF FEBRUARY 2016. Where the scenic Russian River meets the crashing Pacific, the landmark Jenner Inn is being reborn. Its new owners are painstakingly restoring the historic inn, room by charming room, transforming the hostelry into a destination worthy of its breathtaking setting. Charlie Coyne, along with wife Katie and his cousins Marty and Tom, are the principals of Dublin Square, the family-owned company that is behind the renovation and rebirth of the Jenner Inn. The Coyne family has demonstrated its ability to breathe new life into historic properties and create superior hospitality experiences. A native Northern Californian, Charlie was practicing law in the 1980’s in San Rafael when his brothers brought him on board to join them in resurrecting the foundering Delta King stern-wheeler that used to ferry passengers across the San Francisco Bay. Under the Coyne family’s leadership, the Delta King is now a thriving hotel and restaurant operation moored on the Sacramento River in Old Sacramento. Tracing its roots to 1904, the Jenner Inn began life as a lumber mill, and played a critical role in the rebuilding of San Francisco after the 1906 earthquake and fire. The mill closed in 1914 when the town consisted of some fifty buildings, seven of which are today part of the Jenner Inn. After the original hotel on the site was destroyed by fire in 1948, the current main structure was built—a one-of-a-kind redwood building with galleon windows, wheel beamed ceilings, and solid oak floors—its design reminiscent of a sailing ship (not surprising since the craftsmen who constructed it were Swedish boat-builders). The building is believed to have been designed by an associate of famed architect Julia Morgan. Today the Jenner Inn is a collection of 21 rooms and free-standing cottages scattered throughout the village, many of them dating to the era of the town’s founding. The Coyne family’s vision for the property is to maintain the inn’s legendary charm while updating its decor, furnishings and amenities. Most important, the inn aims to meld seamlessly with its setting, capitalizing on the surrounding natural scenery, quaint village atmosphere, and proximity to Sonoma Wine Country. Because each room is unique, prices will vary, but the goal is to offer a romantic destination emphasizing the natural beauty and activities of west Sonoma, including kayaking, whale and seal watching, abalone diving, fishing, bicycling and the world class Sonoma wine and food bounty. Several rooms are being designated as pet friendly. Renovation of the inn is occurring in stages, one building at a time, with the hotel continuing to operate throughout the process. Guests may choose from any of eight lodging types, ranging from the cottages with waterfront, meadow or grotto views; to the Jenner House’s comfortable creek side rooms and suites; to private studios. Many have kitchens, most have water views, some have private decks, and all offer comfort, privacy, and charm. In coming months the Jenner Inn’s dining room will include a full bar, and restaurant, beginning with full made-to-order breakfast for guests. The Coyne family’s vision for the Jenner Inn grows from Charlie’s experience as general manager of the Delta King Hotel and Restaurant for twenty-two years, as well as involvement in other hospitality projects in Northern California. An avid abalone diver, Charlie happened upon the Jenner Inn while returning from a diving trip. Dublin Square LLC purchased the Jenner Inn in February 2016, opening the door to another adventurous chapter for the Coyne family. Says Charlie Coyne, “ Our attraction to the Jenner Inn mirrors what motivated our purchase of the Delta King. We will be guardians of an incomparable asset with significance that transcends our ownership. We view the Jenner Inn as a treasure of historic proportion and natural beauty that cannot be duplicated. Our emphasis will be to accent the inherent attractions of the Jenner Inn and west Sonoma County. We were elated at the opportunity to acquire such a unique property located so close to the Bay Area. “ ... more   less
