This part of California is so beautiful, and this hotel sits in a prime position up on a hill overlooking Ocean - great location!

My familie stayed here on holiday and we had much fun in mendocino. The garden was very nice. Our room was good but the colors and furniture were not very beutiful. Brekfast was good. The man working there spoke german!! He made our stay very nice. Whenever we are in mendocino, then will we stay there.

Beautiful weekend and weather was great. The morning breakfast was fine and the weekend stay was great. Great location. Not in the village, but a block away is an easy walk. Quiet location and beautiful gardens.

Place is very easy to locate. Clerk was nice, had paid for a room with an ocean view but they were booked up. Room that we were staying needs an update. Bed was not comfortable and they have music on Friday nights but it seems that includes the parking lot. Had individuals at their cars playing loud music and talking loud also. Could'nt even hear the tv program we were watching. I thought this was a coastal town but they sure like to party.

This hotel lacks polish; it is comfortable yet a shame that detail is overlooked. On Saturday the desk clerk was friendly but appeared to have just come in from the beach in dungarees, tennis shoes and a v-neck top. The manager and wait staff at breakfast were rather professional looking in contrast. The following day, Sunday, a more appropriately dressed desk clerk was a pleasant change. The breakfast room was too small to accommodate all guests although a second room was opened up but it was only partially made up and rather dark. The manager on duty was cordial and helpful in seating us. The wait person was helpful in providing directions to a site we found to be a beautiful walk. She was took time to time to provide us with directions which turned out to be the perfect answer to our hiking adventure. In fact the manager and wait person where the highlights of our encounters with staff at the hotel. Our room was comfortable but dated, particularly the linens which were rather dingy. Walking past the breakfast room later that day the floor had not yet been vacumed of crumbs. Slow housekeeping was also evident in the women's restroom and the sign on a dispenser (hand written and taped to the front) provoked the question....would a guest truly ask at the front desk? Amenities are at a minimum at this hotel. We would recommend this as a hotel that appears to see little care taking, employs a minimum of professional staff but probably retains its appeal because of its proximity to the village of Mendocino.

Constructive comments are always appreciated and offer our hotel an opportunity for improvement. New linens have already arrived and more improvements are on the way.
