We didn;t book ahead so I felt we were gouged at the price of the room, the room despite overlooking the Ocean was not worthy of almost $200, the towels were antique pieces along with the many pieces adorning the walls. And as for the person at reception (the evening shift), all I can say is she should not be... More

This is a wonderful, charming, old-European style hotel, right on the waterfront in Mendocino, and within steps of restaurants, galleries, a bookstore and shopping. The grand staircase takes you up to the balcony level and rooms, many of which have shared bathrooms. Old and/or antique furniture contributes to the warm ambiance, and Persian carpets capture the era of sea captains... More

The Mendocino Hotel offers a wonderful low rate for students taking a class at the Mendocino Art Center. For the price $59 a night, it was excellent! The staff were very nice and helpful. Everything was clean and working. Mendocino is very quiet, so there was no problem with noise. I felt very safe. The Mendocino Art Center is terrific... More

Dierect view of the ocean. It's is a gorgeous hotel. Feather bed on the mattress. Feather pillows. The shops are so cute. Really good food in the restaurant. Ate from the lunch menu for dinner. Downside: there is very loud music out front. It's 11pm and no signs of the music shutting off.

This was our second stay at this hotel. We came last year and had such a great experience that we had to go back. While this location is out of the way and a long drive from the Bay Area, it is a wonderful place to get away from it all and to stay right next to the ocean and... More

On our arrival, we were taken aback by the old world charm this hotel offers, and the amazing view of the bay opposite. However a little more charm would have been appreciated after our long journey. We arrived at 8.20pm, and it took just over 10 minutes to check in. We asked if we could eat in the dining room,... More

stayed at this hotel for two nights with my husband. Found a great deal on the price. Room was very comfortable, nice towels and linens, very comfortable bed, small patio outside our room. The flowers throughout were amazing. Wonderful antiques in the rooms and in the main hotel. We did not eat there, so cannot comment on the food. The... More

This was our third time staying here and we loved it just as much as we had on our previous visits. The staff was warm and welcoming, the hotel itself is very charming and the location is fantastic. Our room aes lovely and the bed was very comfortable.

We just completed two nights in a dog friendly suite, room 309 in the garden section. The hotel is a late 1800's era complete with antique furnishings and motif. The room itself was spacious, with fireplace, full bath, and couch set in a bay window. The bed itself was rather hard but for two night it was tolerable. We were... More

A step back in time. This lovely old hotel depicts all that is great about Mendocino. Gracious, welcoming and so so interesting. The staff were fabulous from the young lady in reception who took time to show me the garden suite to decide if I liked it to the staff in the restaurant and the barman who prided himself on... More

We definitely are a step back in time. Old fashioned courteous service by a caring staff is what we are known for. Next time try our garden suites as they all have "marble" bathrooms and are more spacious than the historical rooms. Looking forward to your next visit! More
