Decided to take Travelzoo up on a two-for-one weekday offer. The room was quaint and a visual experience. The carpet, wallpaper, couch, chairs and bedspread were all different patterns. The room was clean and quiet with a large porch facing the Pacific to the north. The commode was an experience. It was a pneumatic type in which the bowl water...

First, a couple caveats: 1. We traveled to Mendocino last week and stayed at the Inn on a Wednesday and Thursday evening and before any holiday traffic, and 2. We stayed at Hill House Inn with a Living Social voucher that reduced the cost of the stay considerably. Both my husband and I normally have difficulty sleeping the first night...

Stayed here for one night on a long road trip with our 3 children. On arrival I was greeted by 3 ladies at reception who reacted to me as if I was disturbing them and were not welcoming at all. Our keys didn´t work as they had muddled them up and given us the wrong ones. The rooms were fine...

My sister and I went to Mendocino for the weekend to celebrate our birthdays. We paid for a room with a view of the ocean, only to arrive and find the windows so filthy that you couldn't see much of the ocean at all. Our room was next to the stairway, so you could hear people walking up and down...

The staff at the Hill House is concerned when our guests are not happy with their stay. This summer we have experienced a lot of fog and drizzle and window maintenance has been increased to a higher level with new longer handled window washing tools. We hope that this guest will revisit us in the future and enjoy our hospitality...

Our recent stay at the Hill House was fairly good with a few exceptions. The bed and pillows in our room were very uncomfortable and gave me a neck ache. The building could use some much needed maintenance as the salt air and wear and tear are apparently taking their toll. We had an ocean view room with balcony and...

Grounds and location are nice but the Inn needs some T.L.C. because of the location and area it's not going to happen because they can get top dollar without any improvements. The breakfast was good ,nice comfy dining room cozy fireplace. Rooms could use new beds ,mattresses ,linen ,and Bedspreads.

I stayed 2 nights with a good friend and we both had the best, quiet, and restful sleep ever! I was glad I paid a little extra for the balcony room with a great ocean view. The room was large with extra places to sit. The decor matches the antiques in the room, like from the early 1900's. The faux...

We enjoy hearing that our peaceful and beautiful property was just the ticket for a relaxing stay. Mendocino is a wonderful place to experience that "down home" welcoming feeling that the staff members that we hire provide. These are not actors but real caring folks that truly care about our guests.

“The Inn is fairly far from the waterfront, so I can't imagine that "oceanview", though technically true, would be worth the extra $.”
