We stayed at the Hill House on 1-16-2016 for a quick trip to scope the Mendocino area for a wedding venue. My wife and I have stayed at the Hill House before, many years earlier. Hill House has a great location in the town of Mendocino and the room rates are reasonable considering what other hotels in the area are... More

As other reviewers have said their intentional antique decor realistically translates to wondering how long the bedspread and carpets have been around. The Wifi didn't reach my room so that was disappointing, but not that much because I didn't want to spend that much time there. I think the lobby could use a huge spring cleaning. On the good part,... More

We stayed in the Hill House Inn for Christmas eve and day during our roadtrip. We wanted to spend Christmas in nice, atmospheric place and we were lucky to found this gem from booking.com. The Inn is located only few hundred meters away from the Mendocino town center, on a hill with great scenery. It’s 5 min walk to nearest... More

Arrived at 2.55pm (check in at 3pm) to be told to hurry as they were closing up. We were essentially handed our key to fend for ourselves. We found the room and were greeted with a smell best described as a bad thrift store (opportunity shop). Although the room was spacious it appeared that it was last renovated before we... More

They were friendly and welcoming, even to our small dog. Everything was updated, yet antique decor and kept clean and comfortable. They offered us a reasonable rate, even lower than what was listed at hotels.com. Great choice!

This hotel is next to the cemetery. I like the old Victorian style feel to it and the rooms were big. Even on the first floor you still have a view of the beach. It seems they only have double beds so that's a disappointment..and my boyfriend was complaining of the haunted feeling it had and I had some pretty... More

We have stayed here a couple of times. The rooms are huge and bed very comfortable. We danced to oldies in the nightclub which is perfectly situated as not to be heard from the rooms. The staff is very helpful, and the proximity is close to shopping and walking. We'll be back (check for online specials before you go)

kind of dated rooms. clean and decent size. Not the most romantic place in Mendocino but fine for a night. The restaurant had an ok menu at reasonable price and a good local wine list. Moderately priced and a couple of blocks from downtown. We had a "garden view" which was really a view of the parking lot. If you... More

This Victorian style inn was beautiful. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The dining area was not available during our stay so we ate in town. The flowers surrounding the Inn were well tended and the hydrangeas were blooming. There were several sitting areas where you could sit and enjoy the flowers. We did have a continental breakfast upstairs... More

I loved my stay at Hill House Inn earlier this year, I stayed for a weekend in June and was very pleased with my overall experience. I booked my stay through Groupon and was pleasantly surprised when they upgraded my room when I arrived. We stayed in an ocean view room. The room was clean and comfortable. The vintage décor...
