We picked the Blue Heron Inn because it has the best of both worlds: (1) basic, comfortable and clean accommodations in an excellent location and (2) fine dining right downstairs. It is only one block from Main Street, with partial views of the ocean. The charm of the historic building and the friendliness of the owners and staff more than... More

They have three rooms, one with private bathroom, this is the one we had. 120$ including taxes. Perfect room with all the necessary, cosy, very good quality details such as towels, blank sheets, mattress. We had a very good sleep. What to improve? Breakfast, definitely, they should offer it. A good breakfast would immediately increase the caché of the hotel... More

The inn only has three rooms upstairs - two with a shared bath and the other ensuite. The rooms are simple with comfortable beds and great views of the ocean and/or town. It's an easy walk to anywhere in the village. The best part is the Moose Cafe located downstairs, one of the best places to eat in Mendocino. The... More

Everyone was cordial and did everything possible to make my stay satisfying..even when I appeared at the door three hours before closing time. The Moose Cafe was also delightful with great food and a fireplace!! A Plus!!! The room was spacious and the town quaint.

I do mean perfect. Inviting accommodations include simple, tastefully done rooms upstairs over a first-rate restaurant. My cushy bed/pillows/comforter looked out to the ocean so I left my window thrown open to hear the waves and breathe the exquisite air. Lovely location and view of the perennial garden and the ocean beyond. I liked sitting up there and hearing the... More

let me start by saying I'm not a bed-and-breakfast kind of guy. Give me a Ritz Carlton, a Grand Hyatt or even a Springhill Suites any day. My thinking has always been that If I'm going to leave my house, I prefer the place I stay to be as nice or nicer than my own home. I always imagined a... More

We had the B&B for ourselves as the restaurant closes at 10pm and the 2 other rooms were empty. 2 rooms including ours share a huge bathroom and the other one has en-suite. Lovely view from our room on the small flower garden below with the sea in the background . Room was a good size with nice furniture. Good... More

We arrived in San Francisco on our train 5 hours late and had to make the drive to Mendocino in the dark. The drive was difficult and we were tired, but the arrangements that the Inn made for us to check in late were so helpful. The room was beautifully decorated and simple and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Though... More

We were driving down the coast and needed some dinner, so we called the restaurant, Moosse Cafe, which was about to close but stayed open because we had called ahead. We had a very good dinner there, although it could have used a vegetarian selection on the dinner entree menu. While having dinner, the lady waiting on us left (I've... More

Simple but friendly continental style welcome and service. Of the two rooms available when we called by one had a great ocean view but no en-suite and the other an en-suite but no view so we opted for the Ocean view room and happily shared a bathroom with just one other room. Nice simple continental breakfast and a good restaurant... More
