“pros and cons”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2011

I loved the location and proximity to the ocean! The lobby and bar are beautifully appointed with a cozy appeal. The room we were in, a Victorian Room, was not what I expected however. There's certainly a charm about a Victorian room but for $180 a night, I'd like an upgraded version (it was a bit worn, light on towels, etc). The bed was pretty comfortable. Our room opened to a narrow, shared deck which eventually led to the view of the ocean which was lovely. The biggest concern of ours is that the substantial noise from the kitchen somehow made it to our room each morning and evening. It sounded a lot like someone moving furniture in the room above you, for hours. The kitchen was below us, but the sound transferred into our room. Upon our checkout, the front desk said that happens in all the Victorian Rooms...... I don't know if I'd stay overnight again but I'm quite sure I'll be having a drink by the fireplace someday.

Room Tip: Upon our check out, the front desk recommended a garden room if we didn't care for the noise com...

We didn't have terribly high expectations for the hotel based on the reviews but were initially pleased with the spaciousness of the gardenview room with bed and generous seating area + fireplace. However, the rooms wallpapers is peeling in places and the tiles are cracked. Also, we recommend asking for top floor room because we could hear everyone passing by outside and every step the guests took on the floor above us very loudly. No sleeping in for us... Excellent location in the heart of Mendocino but the town is so small that any accomodation in town is great.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor will be quieter (less overhead traffic)

Nice lobby and bar area. Mediocre service. Stayed in a king room with a nice fireplace and window seat. Room was a little worn, but done well. Bathroom was circa Super 8 motel--did not match the furnishings or decor in the main room at all. Would pass on this and try to find a B&B.

What a wonderful place to stay. The staff is excellent, the room was large and clean. The grounds are well kept, the food was good at the restaurant. The location is tops. Easy walk to the headlands, restaurants that have patios and are dog friendly are around every corner. Bear and I had such a good time exploring town. We can't wait to come back.

Room Tip: They have several pet friendly rooms in the garden suites. A downstairs room with a porch is very n...

Hats off to the chef for this dish! My friend had the scallops and was just as pleased. Service from Michelle was excellent. Our room in the Garden Suites was comfortable and quiet and this visit to Mendocino was just the break we needed. We will be back!
