We travel to Mendocino for business and pleasure. The price was just right. This location at the top of hill is a place we have wanted to stay and booked it this last trip! We will return. The rooms are large, the staff was wonderful and I highly recommend it.

I spent two nights in this hotel. The hotel lobby and grounds are charming and the room was large with a nice bathroom and extra sink. The room was clean and tidy but the shower was very difficult to use and water filled the tub. The door locks were rusted. In short, the hotel needs a handyman. It is important...

We visited in the winter, got a great room rate and enjoyed having 15% coupons for meals at the Mendocino hotel. Property has very minimal view of the ocean so don't let that claim fool you. It is at the top of the hill so maybe a little far for some to walk downtown. But I like not being in...

Beautiful hotel from the outside but the inside really is still stuck in the Cabot Cove era. The room was large and clean but the mattresses and furnishings all seemed really old & worn & very floral. Appreciated the large bath room sink and close parking. For the price, it wasn't bad and we took a nice walk around town...

The inn sits atop a small rise so it feels very much like driving up to a wealthy relatives home. The lobby area was decorated nicely for the holidays. There is a garden out front that had some blooms despite it being Dec. We had a room on the second floor, there aren't any elevators but easy walk up one...

I stayed here one night, visiting from Los Angeles. The Inn was great, beautifully decorated and a breath of fresh air from what I'm used to. The room was clean and large. I stayed in a bunch of hotels and inns along the coast during my trip and this was the largest. It has a very warm feeling to it,...

I just stayed for one night and I would have liked to spend more time there. The hotel is very pretty. The room was very big and clean, the same as the bathroom. There wasn't fridge or microwave. Because it was low season the restaurant was closed. I would stay again.

Stayed here for one night on our way from the Redwoods area to Napa. The inn consists of a group of houses. The house with the office/lobby/breakfast room was nicely decorated with period flavor.

I think this hotel is priced too high for what you get. The service was actually quite bad when we first checked in. We stayed for a few nights, so I can safely say that it wasn't uniformly horrible, but one does expect a bit more professionalism. The room was fine and the view was superb. The bedding was comfortable....
