We stay at this motel a couple times a year, because we love the price and the fact they don't charge a high fee to bring our dog. The rooms are clean and the service is helpful. The breakfast is simple, but good. The price is reasonable plus they offer a AAA discount. Our dog is always welcome and he... More

For a quick getaway to the coast, my wife and I chose this hotel because of their dog-friendly motto. We were not disappointed. Our dogs were welcomed everywhere on the premises, even inside the front lobby. The lobby even had photos of many of their doggy guests. There was a grassy area in the back of the property to walk...

This was not my first choice of hotels in town but it was available for the night so we rented a room for the night. It is an older style motel with an entrance on one side of the room and a balcony other side of the room and really it is designed for you to stay there several days... More

Very nice - large rooms - table and chairs. "Expanded" breakfast is just coffee, muffins and yogurt but o.k. at the price. Quiet in the back rooms but we were here in really off season. Clean but could use a bit of vacuuming in the corners.

Glad that you enjoyed your stay at the Seabird. Why pay Mendocino rates when you can stay at the Seabird and save your money for other activities, souvenirs, meals or great chocolates from Mendocino Chocolate Company!!! Hope to see you again soon. More

I arrived in town in the late afternoon, saw this place and decided to stay. The ladies at the desk were so welcoming, and I instantly felt like I was in a home visiting a friend. The room was clean and very comfortable. I was able to do laundry, walk to a restaurant for dinner, and enjoy free WiFi as... More

Bed was ok, room was clean and spacious. Did not like the interconnecting room with a strangers room. No dead bolt or secondary locks on main door. Property seems run down and needs some maintenance. Hotel seems to caters to dogs, lots of dogs. Lobby was very cluttered with stuff and uninviting. It was an ok place, but with all... More

It was nothing special, but comfortable and clean, and we slept well in the bed. One drawback was having to lug our heavy suitcases up the narrow outdoor stair and... More
