We looked at the photos and different properties on-line and selected a rustic room in one of the properties. Our bad luck, it was the only house (unbeknownst to me) that does not host a wine hour. You have to "reserve" at one of the other locations, not just drop in, and then you're welcome to go to one of... More

Best in class inn. Wonderful caretakers, breakfasts beyond belief (hand made croissants, baked eggs caprese) and an easy walk to the paths along the coastal headlands or shops in the quiet welcoming town.

This is by far the best place to stay in Mendocino. The decor is amazing, the beds the rooms, the common areas. Everything is wonderful, clean, newly renovated, and well decorated. We had our wedding weekend in Mendocino and booked the entire The Blue Door Inn for the family. Well, nothing could have been better. The service was exceptional, with... More

Really great B&B, with a wonderful host who does all the great cooking. Delicious food! Mendocino provided very good shopping for my wife and good wildlife for photographing for myself. Really nice rooms and comfortable beds. Located only a block off the main downtown area.

This is the absolute best B&B in Mendocino. I almost didn't want to write a review for this place. It's so wonderful, I almost wish I could keep it a secret, but I can't. I'm convinced that any negative reviews are because they had similar inclings ;) The rooms are clean and comfortable. The decor is lovely -- like staying... More

We loved our stay here immensely. The bathroom was gorgeous, all the furnishings were exactly to our taste. The fireplace was so cozy in the evenings. The appetizers and wine and breakfasts were delicious. The location was fantastic for walking to dinner and all around Mendocino. We will definitely be back soon.

Overpriced for bed and breakfast. Hostess nice but seemed annoyed if guest wanted something as simple as a cup of coffee instead of an early evening drinks. If you don't want to eat according to her time schedule oh well.

Thank you for taking the time to review our Mendocino inn. I'm sure you'd find that we're very competitively priced for similar accommodations in such a popular California coastal destination. Please accept our apologies that our host did not meet your expectations. There's no excuse for bad hospitality and we've addressed your concerns with our staff. We pride ourselves on... More

A great choice. Victorian house w well thought out contemporary interior. Fabulous bed and bedding. Well located. Innkeeper was incredibly helpful, accommodating and friendly. Hard to believe there could be a better place to stay in Mendocino. We will be staying here again...

This was my first stay at a B&B, so I had some preconceived notion of a full house of strangers milling around a strange home. Needless to say, the entire experience was very pleasant. Upon arrival, a ring of the doorbell greets you with the hostess of the property, Nan. She is a very sweet and kind person and took... More
