Loved Mendocino! We arrived on a sunny-blue late April afternoon, quite charmed by the town and scenery. We checked in at the Blue Door Inn, having been told earlier we had a room at Packard House. No, we were politely told to go to JD House. I assumed - NEVER assume - that JD would be perfectly fine (I had...

Overall nice experience but several significant problems - first, I'm reviewing Blue Door Inn because that's where I thought I was reserving, both through Tripadvisor at first, then checking it with the Booking.com reservation (confirming the address given was Blue Door Inn, not one of the other properties), but we found out the day before via email from them we...

Outstanding in every way: personnel, room comforts, cleanliness, creative breakfast basket delivered to room -- higher priced than others in the area & well worth it. The staff was naturally interactive and personable -- seemed to care about making sure we had a great experience. Their local recommendations were both accurate and matched our stated objectives.

We've been to this B&B two years in a row now, can't wait to return again this summer! Rooms and decor are so inviting and cozy- perfect way to unwind on the California Coast if you're looking to get away! The breakfast is delicious, and the hosts are so kind and gracious. It is perfectly located in the town... secluded,...

We stayed at The Blue Door Inn on March 12th and had an amazing night stay! We are from NH and it was our first time to California and coincidentally our first time staying at an inn/ b&b.

I loved the view from my room and the lovely breakfast basket each morning. The location was perfect, close to the ocean and very handy for shops and restaurants. The wine in the afternoon was also well received.

This was our second stay with the Blue Door Group, our first at the Blue Door Inn. We stayed two nights in the Kensington Room, which had an ocean view, a gas fireplace, and a whirlpool soaking tub. From the warm welcome to the "breakfast in bed" delivered to our door in a basket, to the afternoon wines and the...

We booked three nights in the JD building if the Blue Door Inn and stayed in the water tower room. It I was cozy with a freestanding fireplace for heat.
