About Breakers Inn and Gualala

Breakers Inn in Gualala

The Breakers Inn was a vision that started in 1980 and was finally built in 1995.  Overlooking the mouth of the Gualala River and the Blue Pacific the Breakers Inn offers a variety of tastefully decorated themed rooms.  Each room will offer a breathtaking view of the beautiful scenery offered here on the Mendocino Coast.  Coastal birds such as Pelicans bathe in the beauty of the crystal clear water, river otters basking in the sun is a sure site to see.  Gualala pronounced ‘Walala’ translates from the Kashaya Pomo Indian phrase “ah kha wa la lee” which means literally “Where the river meets the sea”.  The American settlement of Gualala was first established by the construction of a hotel, saloon and a lumber mill in the 1860s, although Gualala has grown a bit since then, it still remains somewhat small.  Gualala thrives in the arts and there are many shows and festivities that take place every year. Whale watching, hiking, kayaking, beach combing and just plain relaxing is what brings people back every year to the Breakers Inn.
