We stayed at the Mendocino Hotel Mendocino, Ca. on a road trip in late August. We had stayed there twice before. In the past it was a well maintained " late 1800/ early 1900 " period type hotel ( some with baths in the room ,some shared down the hall) with great gardens and a fantastic view. The view is...

This old hotel is highly reminiscent of the turn of the century with a dark wood paneled lobby and restaurant. The lobby is a lovely place to relax with a glass of wine gazing out the window toward the ocean bluffs or enjoying the fireplace. We stay here in the upstairs "continental" rooms for a lower price option in Mendocino.... More

While we did not have the chance to stay at the hotel(another time for that!), we did eat at their restaurant. The service was friendly and the food was very good. Nice atmosphere and we were very pleased.

We stayed in the garden rooms separate from the main hotel and to us, we liked that as the room was quiet although you could hear the people in rooms next to us. Still the guests were good and considerate so it wasn't a problem. Room seemed a bit old and musty but the fireplace was neat and the room... More

Historic lodgings were appealing, however the mattresses should be replaced and ventilation was very poor. There are no 1st floor rooms and no elevators, so pack light or muscle your bags or use the staff. Great ambiance, good morning coffee.

We booked our room for a special two for one night reservation and were immediately impressed with the hotel when checking in. Service at the front desk was friendly, courteous and efficient. Our room on the second floor - with a double bed, good-sized armoire, wash sink, toilet and shower - was both comfortable and pretty to look at thanks... More

Shared bath -- it's in the small print. That's fine; I can live with it. But the room has a bed that is tiny and tilts downward. Extremely uncomfortable. They should not give this room to a couple; it is too small. I wouldn't stay there again. Room 4.

My husband and I stayed in the Euro room which shared the bathroom in the hall. The room was tiny and had no dresser or night stand and the closet was about 3 feet wide. There was a French door that opened to a wraparound balcony but not the kind to sit out on. The bed was a double and... More

We had two night's reservations at this lovely historic hotel and I recommend it. The room was located in one of the garden cottages and had a porch with chairs and table to enjoy a glass of wine. Our bedroom was large with a very comfortable king-sized bed and two wing chairs flanking the fireplace. It had a very well-equipped... More

I'm really surprised at the high ratings for this hotel. Yes, it's charming, yes, it's quaint, and yes, it's in the middle of town, but I expect better from a property with such high ratings. We arrived on a Sunday with reservations for 3 nights. Even though the vacancy sign was out, we received a room at the very back... More
