We had a great room in (13) overlooking the ocean. Very clean and great bed. We only had some Clam Chowder to eat which happened to be adequate at best. The downstairs is really. Ice to sit by the fireplace, however, my gal and I were the ones keeping the fire going..mostly the fire was coming from the gas pipe,...

We had a room in the garden suites which is a separate building from the historic hotel to our surprise. The room was fine, bed very comfortable, everything has character, if not a bit worn down. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The location in the middle of Mendocino is fantastic, everything is in walking distance. Pricing is a...

Dating back to 1878, this hotel has loads of character and is within walking distance to everything in Mendocino. The furniture is antique and the walls and light switches are all covered in wallpaper. We arrived late at night and were happy to find a room even though it didn't have a bathroom, just a sink. The room had a...

First of all Mendocino is gorgeous but the hotel is a curates egg. Lobby is wonderful but the rooms are vintage in all senses of the word. We were lucky that we had a en- suite facilities But if you want a TV or coffee facilities your out of luck. It also has a bizarre feature in that all the...

It's a Victorian building, with Victorian scale. Main building, on Main Street, is four shared bathrooms. Rooms have sinks. Clean. Warm duvet under the bedspread. Heat was fantastic. The balcony is shared with all rooms. Clear views of Mendocino Bay with craggy headlands. Good breeze. Off Albion and Ukiah streets, the garden suites offer more typical accommodations. Some chatter in...

So much character. Gorgeous place and scenery. Decent rates if booked online. The rooms in the back (9-10) are above the kitchen fans so things will start vibrating in the AM. Brunch at one of the two restaurants was top. And if you're a guest the coffee is strong, bottomless and on the house!

I have been to Mendocino several times but never stayed here until now. I have always loved the look from outside looking in and always wanted to stay. I booked a couple of rooms for myself and my mother-in-law. I thought the location was great since it's walking distance to everything. Check in experience was fine. Disappointment came when I...

Great location for exploring Mendocino. Very Victorian. We had a room in one of the houses behind the hotel. Large and comfortable. It had a fireplace which was great because we were there in the heart of the February storms. We would come back.

We didn't stay in the hotel. We had lunch. It's the 2nd time I've had lunch there. The decor is from another era, sort of Great Gatsby-ish. It's cool. Like my previous visit I had their French Onion soup- soooo good! My party of 5 had clam chowder, an Asian cabbage salad, wedge salad, fish & chips, hamburger and sweet...

This was our second stay st this classic hotel. It has a lot of history and charm. The regular rooms in the main hotel are very small and need refurbishing. However, the lobby is very inviting and their restaurant serves very good food. The huevos rancheros for breakfast were excellent. Staff is warm and friendly.
