This was our first trip to Mendocino. At fist when we got to the Nicholson House Inn it looked as we were in the middle of nowhere. However, it is really close and walking distance to everything. On another note, Mendocino is so small that everything is close. Even Fort Bragg is about 8 miles away. Here is what we... More

The Good - Walking distance from Mendocino downtown - Very comfortable (nice beds) - Nice entertainment area The Bad - Breakfast is cold and so so - Not much of a view, but then again, we were in the grandma suite.

We enjoyed our stay at the Nicholson House Inn this past weekend. We were in one of the newest rooms (The Russian Rose room) and it was quite comfortable and clean. The location is right off Highway 1 and a quick walk to food and shopping. We did not get a chance to meet the innkeeper but when I did... More

Although the photos look great, the reality of the Nicholson House is somewhat lacking. The junior suite was booked and the sofa bed in the living room was so uncomfortable the first night that it was never opened again - more comfortable to sleep on the sofa, which we certainly didn't find to be a great value. The bed in... More

I can't rate the Inn because I never got beyond trying to make a reservation. The Inn looks beautiful online and I certainly wouldn't discourage anyone from considering a stay there. My problem was with the Innkeeper, Brent. I E-MAILED him to inquire about a room for January. He PHONED our house to reply. I'm sure I am among thousands... More

If you're looking for anything other than a unique inn experience, go somewhere else. There's no in-room coffee, TV, room service or Junior Suite. It's a remodeled 6-bedroom inn with theme decor. It's not on the water and you really can't see the ocean from the rooms, so get outside. It's an easy two block walk to all the stores... More

A very attractive B&B, this is a house converted to bedroom accommodation. Our booking was replied to with a lot of information about the house, the room etc, very much individual attention. The room was fairly small but well appointed. There was no T.V. in the room but there was a guest lounge, however it only had seating for about... More

We spent one night at Mendocino on the way to a weekend wedding. The home was built in 1905 and is historic. It is set back from the coast by a couple of blocks and right in the town but further away from the point than other guest houses. We chose the Orca room for what we thought would be... More

We arrived here at 7:30 PM after driving up CA coastal route 1. The property is located in the middle of town, there is no off street parking. The Orca Room was small and the only view of the water from this room is from the bathroom. The room is very small. The shower head in the bathroom was very... More

The warm welcome is a good metaphor for the warmth of this place. Very cosy room, with a British countryside touch. Nice, huge bed. Excellent, fast wifi. Home-made scones at breakfast were delicious. An abundance of fresh fruits as well.
