This was a gift from our daughter and son in law which they purchased on the Groupn special recently. On our arrival we were greeted by one of the staff who was tending to the garden. We had a very nice chat with her and then entered the foyer where we were greeted by the concierge. Everyone was so friendly answering any questions and giving direction etc. As we picked out a bottle of complimentary wine, got our key and walked to room 221 what a pleasant surprise to find this beautiful room with a fireplace, king size bed, couch with 2 side chairs and a table with 2 chairs sitting in front of a bay window looking out to the ocean. We just stood there taking it all in. The large bathroom had washclothes folded over the large bath towels in the shape of bows. What an unexpected touch to this beautiful room. We made a fire in the fireplace one night as we watched the sunset out the bay window and drank our wine. The cleanliness of the room and bathroom where that of which I have never seen before. Not a speck of dust even on a picture frame. The bed was very comfortable and cozy as were the pillows. The room was very quiet and we slept great. You are within walking distance of the main street in Mendocino and all the restaurants, shops and the ocean beach. We parked our car at Hill House and never drove it again until we left for home. Our over all experiance was excellent and we will be going back and encouraging others to go for a peaceful,romantic yet exciting weekend get away. Thank you to all the Staff for making this a time to remember.

I've stayed in some flea-bag hotels, but this one takes the prize because they're soooo dishonest about it. This place actually had centipedes falling from the bathroom air vent on our heads while we sat on the john! There's no manager on duty, so don't bother asking for one. The "towels" are torn dirty rags. If you have a coupon or a Groupon and you call for a reservation and they tell you that they're fully booked except for a way more expensive room, don't believe it for a second! In short, go to a Motel 6 before you try this place, and if Hill House is the last place with an available room, go camping.

Room Tip: Stay in a Motel 6 for better quality. Or go camping in one of the beautiful state parks in Mendocin...

. I used a groupon for a two night stay, ocean view, wine, and breakfast. I brought my daughter, and grand daughter with me. we all enjoyed the stay. the staff were very nice and helpful i felt that this was not like a big hotel, but like a more family run place. which i enjoyed. yes it is an older place but part of the charm..

My lovely wife and I just returned home from a two night stay at the Hill House Inn, Mendocino Ca. The Rooms were clean and our ocean view was great, the staff were wonderful knowledgable especially Kathy. I met Kathy this morning, she was very gracious and personable as we talked about the local interest in the area. Kathy spoke of wonderful eateries and points of interests. Her mannerism was warm and accommodating which made it a pleasure to of met her. I must say the rooms are dated but very comfortable. We are looking forward to our next trip to the coast which will include a stay at the Hill Top Inn. I want to Thank the staff (especially Kathy) for their contribution to our wonderful stay in Mendocino!

The staff were nice and helpful. The grounds were beautiful and kept up well. Rooms were clean but older - could use a refresh and new comforters. Location great - we are walkers so walked to ocean and into town multiple times.
