We enjoyed our stay. We had an upstairs room in the "garden" section. It was quiet and cozy. I can't remember ever having stayed in a hotel room that has lace curtains. I liked the old-fashioned decor. At age 62, think I was one of the youngest guests. Loved the bar area; we enjoyed a martini and a manhattan. We...

Used a Travelzoo coupon for a very good rate in a Garden Suite. This is in a separate building behind the hotel. We had room 311, upstairs, very spacious, king bed, sofa and two chairs and fireplace. All the furniture was worn. Small view of the ocean. Note rooms in the hotel are "European" = shared bath in the hall....

I was recently at the Mendocino Hotel and Garden Suites to celebrate the 40th wedding anniversary of my partner's parents. This is a short and to the point review. 1.

I stayed in one of the suites at the Mendocino hotel. My sweet was decorated very nicely and included a sitting area and a fireplace with Duraflame logs provided.

We're here for 2 nights in a terrific coupon. About 100 per night. We have a very large room with a king bed in the Garten area, which is a block from the actual hotel. This part was probably built in the 70's. It still had the Victorian theme. Nice fireplace with 2 presto logs each night. Smallish flat screen...

Conveniently located on the main..with many walking trails and spectacular views of the ocean. It has the advantage of being surrounded by stores and restaurants .. all within walking distances. The only negative was that the room was pretty dated and cleanliness ( behind end tables etc) was not upto the mark.. patch wifi too
