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

This hotel is right on Main Street facing the cove an easy walk to the ocean. Lots of shops and nice restaurants close by. Hotel was built in 1878 and it has a lot of Victorian charm but a bit dark. Our room 208 was in good location but very Spartan. Showing its age a bit with small rooms and... More

First and foremost - this is a charming location right across from the park and the water, an easy walk to anywhere in town, with expansive views from the restaurant and lounge areas. 1880s historic styling, well-preserved in the woods and design elements for this inn. Well done and attractive. Drinks service was very good, nice bar, parking a breeze... More

Had beers in the hotel, very nice, and a good sandwich to go. Walked around the small guiet town then went to my 2nd floor front room. When I woke,... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for one night on valentines day. There was a whole reservation debacle after we booked on booking.com. They told us that the hotel was overbooked and we were transferred to their sister hotel the Hill House Inn with not much of an explanation. This was of course upsetting. After a bunch of emails over... More

This is a historic inn. As such, it has atmosphere but one has to tolerate the rather small rooms and dated plumbing. It's robutness left something to be desired - a windstorm knocked out the electricity, water and Internet ! In fact, the whole place felt like a fire trap waiting to happen.
