When I bought a Groupon for the Mendocino Hotel, I thought we were staying in the back of the hotel on Main Street where I assume there was some garden. I was actually concerned that I'd have trouble finding parking with all the tourists that converge on Mendocino on the weekends. Imagine my delight when it turned out that we scored a large room in one of the guest houses two blocks away on Ukiah Street. You can barely see the driveway from the street since it looks like you're entering someone's private property, but lo and behold, there's ample parking and even a garden walkway on the side of a blue house.
Even though it's obviously not that old a building, the spacious rooms are decorated in the same Victorian style that the main hotel showcases. The furniture looks appropriately antique like you're a guest at the Shady Rest where Uncle Joe is movin' kinda slow, but it doesn't feel tired. King-size bed, lace curtains, big armoire, drawing room sofa, marble fireplace, the works (see photo). The bathroom is huge, and even if it didn't have many modern touches, it was comfortable enough. By the way, I had no idea how quiet Mendocino gets at night. Unlike Fort Bragg, it's as still as a tomb and can be unnerving if you are looking for some nocturnal entertainment. By the way, the Groupon allowed us two nights for just $242, which is quite a deal for these parts. I say go for it if you can get a deal.
