We stayed here one night and it was great. This is a lively old west hotel which is the place to go of a night time, but all finished by 10pm. They're are only four rooms upstairs and they are lovely Victorian rooms with claw foot baths, comfortable beds and very quiet. I would definitely recommend the Ivanhoe and would... More

We stayed 3 nights. The first night we had dinner in their restaurant and it was EXCELLENT! The mattress in our room was a bit hard, but we slept comfortably. It was quiet, well decorated, provided all we needed for our coastal vacation, and we LOVE Ferndale! We were within walking distance to cover the whole cute downtown and enjoyed... More

After reading all the reviews about this place, we purposely rerouted our North Coast trip to arrive at the Hotel Ivanhoe on Wednesday (they're closed Mon & Tues). Although not as impressive on the outside as some of the other Ferndale Inns, the Ivanhoe lived up to its reputation in every other way. The restoration and decor was impressive. We... More

This was like stepping back in time once you enter the lobby. This hotel is very much in touch with it's past but it's not outdated. Barb is a great host and made us feel welcome from the beginning. The Brice Room is a bit small as to be expected in many older hotels but very comfortable. Great bed and... More

After a horrendous trip over rte #36 from Red Bluff, CA to Ferndale, CA, we managed to get a gal on our cell who said she had a room available (this was around 9PM.) When we arrived there, we were shown a lovely room done in Victorian style with all the amenities, even including a coffee pot and 2 biscotti.... More

We travelled from Seattle to San Fran via HWY 101 and stayed in some nice places but our visit to Ferndale and our stay at the Hotel Ivanhoe was without doubt the best night of our whole trip. The town is so pretty and remains practically untouched especially Hotel Ivanhoe and its Saloon. It amazing, like stepping back in time... More

This painstakingly restored and delightful Historic venue is perfectly situated in the center of all the action in the Victorian Village of Ferndale. Dave and Barb, the proprietors, infinitely enhance the experience with genuine warmth and unpretentious hospitality. The location adjacent to the restaurants, inviting watering holes and quaint shops is ideal. There are many choices as to where to... More

This is a lovely hotel, once inside, the outside rather resembles a box, don't be put off. Inside it feels luxurious, dark wood and low lighting. The room we had felt like we'd travelled back to another century. It really encapsulated the view I have of old America. Staff were friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant and the... More

Wished we could have stayed a couple of days. It's a nice, comfortable 1 bedroom cottage atop a garage with a beautiful view from your own private deck. The owners were very pleasant and gave us suggestions as to where to have dinner in town. If you like privacy, and would like a change from staying in a hotel, this... More
