It is a beautiful old building that is full of history and character. The location is magnificent but the rooms are small and only a few expensive ones have good views. The restaurant and bar are great as long as you don't expect anybody to know anything about your dinner reservations. The food makes up for the delays but some... More

This is truly one of our favorite places to stay on the Mendocino Coast, especially in the Garden Suites. But it hasn't been upgraded or cared for in 25 years. I am not talking here of 100 year old rooms. The suites were built in the 80s I guess. Now the paint is faded, rooms are drafty, sink nobs missing,... More

Heading to the coast for just 1 night to help support family friends through a loss - we were only able to find availability at the Mendocino Hotel - and now I know why. We booked a pet-friendly room that was in building 300 (I believe) and upon checking in, could immediately tell that it was an old, funky establishment... More

Mendocino in November can be cold and rainy. Our room was an oasis. Comfy beds and a small patio where we sat each night and had wine and cheese. Our chocolate Labrador was welcomed and also enjoyed the stay.

The room was clean, the location was great, and it was pet friendly which we needed. However, for a one-night stay at a quaint hotel I nearly croaked when the bill came and saw it was about 3 times more expensive than the other hotels we'd stayed at on the coast over our road trip weekend. If you are already... More

We stayed here one night while visiting Mendocino wineries. We got in late (8pm or so) without a reservation and the kind desk clerk gave us a very good deal on a room with a bath. Many of the rooms do not have a bathroom. We had a late dinner and the kitchen kindly stayed open for us. Our server... More

What a disaster of a room. Reeked of urine and mildew and was dusty with peeling wallpaper and worn furnishings. No shade for ground level glass entry door. We were told to hang a sheet over it until morning. Disgruntled staff member told me to write a complaint in the hope that management might fix the disaster that was in... More

I really hate to do this.......I understand what a negative review can mean. But our Garden suite did not look ANYTHING like the photos published here. I don't know where the rooms are that these other guests were staying? Peeling wall paper, large holes in the walls and sheet-rock, holes and worn out carpet and flies. That's what we found... More

Our stay in Mendocino was choreographed in grace. I'd never been to Mendocino, and hadn't planned on visiting. We were in the Sonoma Hills, where there's limited wiFi/internet connectivity, so I was having difficulty researching a place to stay for our visit to the coast. (I was fixated on bed and breakfastses in Bodega Bay and Jenner, and got some... More

My wife and I stayed overnight in a Garden Suite at the Mendocino Hotel whilst driving down from Seattle to San Diego. We had heard Mendocino's reputation as a centre of artists and for us it was an obvious stop off en route. We picked the Mendocino Hotel based upon Tripadvisor recommendations and were not disappointed. The reception area of... More
