We spent two nights in one of the garden rooms at Hotel Mendocino. The room was on the 2nd floor. The steps were steep so it was an ordeal carrying the luggage up to the room; however, the room was really nice and spacious. Our room was the Lansing, named after the captain of one of the ships that sailed... More

In summary, your experience at this place will depend on what you paid. We recently stayed on a promo rate (Groupon) and they are doing a lot of specials these days, as well as at their sister property the Hill House Inn. If that is the case for you, then you can expect a great location with fair accommodations with... More

We just had the best time here, it was our 22nd anniversary, and we come to Mendocino for a lot of our getaways, this getaway far outweighs the rest, we were so enamored with our suite we stayed in our room most of the time, carried back in time by the decor dating back to the late 1800 hundreds, magically...

Love this hotel! We always stay in the garden suites which we love! Beautiful grounds, beautiful hotel, great food and bar, perfect location on Main St. Can't wait for our return visit in a couple months!

Drove north from San Francisco on 101 to highway 185 in Cloverdale that would take us Northwest to Mendocino. Highway 185 had everything – from green hills and lots and lots of vineyards to steep hills and twisty valleys to stands of massive Redwood Trees until finally, after 65 wheel-gripping miles, we arrived at Highway #1 to go North 12...

Wall paper peeling in the sink area. Two spiders and a sow bug in the bath area. Black out curtain off its runner. T paper holder about... More

For a 3 star hotel this hotel is great. Historic, well decorated, beautiful gardens. Totally in keeping with Mendocino itself which is well worth a visit.. Beautiful. Our comfortable character filled room was clean and pleasant with creaky floorboards and doors adding to the atmosphere. Outlook onto beautiful old fashioned gardens

The late 1800s style gives this hotel a great historical feel. Lots of wood in the lobby, restaurant, and bar. We stayed in one of the garden rooms which are in cottages behind the main building. The room was very large and comfortable with a fireplace, sitting area, and marble bath. The facility is old but well maintained with abundant... More

The hotel is centrally located close to all shops/restaurants. The lobby is beautiful with upholstered antique chairs for sitting and sipping a beverage and looking out at the exquisite Mendocino headlands’ view and people walking by. I got a great deal on a garden suite room, but it might be better to get a room in the main hotel rather... More

The two great things about this hotel are the views from certain areas and its location next to shopping and restaurants. I have frequented this property for over 25 years, and was sad to see it in such run down condition. I have historically preferred staying in the main building (instead of the "garden suites"). However, during this stay, Room... More
