Eric, Elaine and the innkeepers are always welcoming and friendly. In April, 2017, I stayed for three days in the Porch Suite at Raku House. The room is picturesque with a very comfortable bed. The cinnamon scones provided for breakfast were the standouts; all of the scones are great, but these were a taste of paradise.

Thank you, Marion! I'm so glad you enjoyed the the scones and the room. We hope to see you again before too long! (I'll schedule those scones to be made again while you're here😋)

Very peaceful and welcoming place. There is a pat directly to the beach, and breakfast overlooks the ocean. Cute little town- you can walk to the grocery store. The bathroom is very cold in winter, unless you remember to turn the heater on first. Hosts are gracious and breakfast is delicious- even edible flowers to garnish the plates. Definitely walk...

This place is not fancy. If you want luxury, you are in the wrong place. Our bathroom was small but functional. About on par with a Motel 6. Our mattress was a little hard. The carpet could use a good cleaning. BUT....... This place IS Mendocino. It is what the town is. Super-friendly, uber-charming, quaint, warm, and......special. In addition, it...

You will not find more attentive, gracious, kind hosts than the ones here at Alegría Inn (Elaine, Eric and their entire staff.) Coming here is like a dreamscape of joy, peace, love, unparalleled beauty, sunsets, beautiful mornings with yummiest breakfasts and coffee before you walk outside to explore Big River Beach, to fish, to hike the bluff on the Mendocino...

Received warm greetings on arrival with a personal tour of the Inn by Elaine. The main living room area included cozy seating in front of a fireplace. Lemon bars and chocolate, chocolate chip cookies were on the sideboard. There were bookcases full of books, DVDs, local info and a basket with toiletries guests may have forgotten. Our room, Sea Breeze,...

A small lovely bed and breakfast inn in Mendocino. Conveniently located on Main St. just a short walk out the back door to the beach. Cafes and shops are just a short walk as well. The innkeepers are engaging and attentive. Chocolates and cookies are in the lobby. Our room has a gas fireplace to keep us warm and comfortable....

Just got back from a wonderful weekend at the Alegria. We stayed in the Village Farm Retreat, which is just up the hill from the main office. It was great for us because it had a kitchenette. Everything was comfortable and clean. The beach and gardens were beautiful and the main building is lovely and historic. Innkeepers were so sweet...

We stayed here in March with our 2 year old daughter. The staff was delightful, the breakfast scrumptious, and the accommodations cozy and unique. We stayed in the Driftwood cottage. Our daughter had a blast playing in the loft, and the kitchen was nice to have; we stayed in one evening and cooked dinner. We also enjoyed the private path...

We happened upon this wonderful B&B by accident - on our Northern Californian road trip, we arrived in Mendocino. Tourist office pointed us to the Alegria. It has everything to provide you with a magical stay. We so enjoyed sitting on the terrace looking at the Pacific Ocean. So special. Fabulous hospitality.
