Very quiet which was nice. Of course we were staying on Sunday night in the off season. Got a great rate through Hotels.com for an ocean view room. Very nice hotel; staff very nice and helpful at check in. Lots of info about the TV show 'Murder, She Wrote ' as it was filmed in town and some of the...

Arrived at 7:30pm and greeted with note on door to go into town to get key at other hotel which took awhile to find due to very poor signage and pouring rain. Unfriendly staff while getting key. Room had sagging King bed (oddly comfortable however), old beat up furniture and poop stains on toilet seat. No number to call and...

My husband and I have made the greatest memories here. From our first getaway together and getting married here. Although it has been 22 years we still love stopping and/or staying here when we visit Mendocino. Staff is always nice. Great location to town and short walk to the beach.

The grounds and the building are nice enough. The Inn is a short way out of town. Sidewalks or a path are not provided in order to safely walk into town. Not the the Inns responsibility to provide them, but it would be nice to know prior to making a reservation. Walking the narrow road into town is hazardous. Restaurant...

First let me apologize about the walk into town. As you stated there are no sidewalks and it is the town's responsibility. The town wants to keep everything like it was all those years ago, natural and unspoiled. I will bring this to the attention of the appropriate department and let them know it is something that should be mentioned...

We travel to Mendocino for business and pleasure. The price was just right. This location at the top of hill is a place we have wanted to stay and booked it this last trip! We will return. The rooms are large, the staff was wonderful and I highly recommend it.

I spent two nights in this hotel. The hotel lobby and grounds are charming and the room was large with a nice bathroom and extra sink. The room was clean and tidy but the shower was very difficult to use and water filled the tub. The door locks were rusted. In short, the hotel needs a handyman. It is important...

We visited in the winter, got a great room rate and enjoyed having 15% coupons for meals at the Mendocino hotel. Property has very minimal view of the ocean so don't let that claim fool you. It is at the top of the hill so maybe a little far for some to walk downtown. But I like not being in...

Beautiful hotel from the outside but the inside really is still stuck in the Cabot Cove era. The room was large and clean but the mattresses and furnishings all seemed really old & worn & very floral. Appreciated the large bath room sink and close parking. For the price, it wasn't bad and we took a nice walk around town...

The inn sits atop a small rise so it feels very much like driving up to a wealthy relatives home. The lobby area was decorated nicely for the holidays. There is a garden out front that had some blooms despite it being Dec. We had a room on the second floor, there aren't any elevators but easy walk up one...

I stayed here one night, visiting from Los Angeles. The Inn was great, beautifully decorated and a breath of fresh air from what I'm used to. The room was clean and large.
