We wanted quiet, and gentle. Long drive to get there for us. The ambiance was just what we wanted even in a light fog. Yes, no one at the desk after 6P, but no problem. Two queen beds, and adequate bathroom facilities. TV had more than enough weather information channels! Lots of towels and bedding. Just nice. Parking easy. Complimentary... More

My wife and I are frequent visitors to Mendocino but this is the first time we have stayed at the Hill House. We chose it in part because of its history, location and pet-friendly status. We found the facility to be dated but comfortable. Because of a recent storm, in-room Wi-Fi was unavailable although it was accessible in the lobby.... More

We got a Groupon for this. We weren't sure as we have been to Mendocino numerous times and even with the groupons the places have been over priced and so so. But here we were delighted. Cassie the desk clerk combine our second night from a sister property and was very helpful with all the inn's amenities. Rick the bartender... More

Plenty of parking, quiet and 2-3 blocks away from the center of Mendocino town (which makes it quiet, yet only a 5-minute stroll to town center), ocean views from the upstairs dining room, nice staff, and a great value. While the FREE breakfast is very basic, it's still free but there are paid options in town. (I don't see why... More

We stayed for a weekend. I got a reasonably priced GROUPON for this place. This property needs some serious renovation. There were small spiders in the restroom. Floor was squeaky (we were in the 2nd floor). Breakfast is simply terrible ( breakfast area is nice though with an ocean view). No wireless internet in the room. Serious problem with the... More

We stayed here for less than 24 hours. They call themselves a Bed and Breakfast, but it's hotel...and very old hotel. When we were in Mendocino it was getting hit hard by storms, so electricity was out in most of the town, but they did have electricity, for a while. When the electricity finally did go out we didn't hear... More

We were very disappointed in our stay. We had reserved 3 nights for our anniversary, and left after 2 nights. The "continental breakfast" they advertise was bagel, toast, cold cereal, apples, orange juice that was never stirred so it was colored water when I pored a glass. The rate was good for weekend in Mendocino but the value was not... More

We have stayed here several times. This time was disappointing. It was reasonably price for Mendocino, but it needs some repairs. Their continental breakfast left a lot to be desired. We like Mendocino and the area around there, and we will be back to that area again. hopefully by then things well change. The dinning room is closed, so you... More

This hotel was quite reasonably priced for Mendocino, but it fell short in several areas during our recent stay. Dining room in the main house has a nice view when skies are clear, but the continental breakfast was sparse with only packaged cereal, pastry and bagels. Garden room was large, but had issues with the heating unit and it never... More

For many vacationers, Mendocino is off the beaten track. For those who don’t mind some winding roads to get to this fabulous North Coast oasis, the rewards are great. Walk around the bluffs west of town and you will enjoy views that will take your breath away. A delightful place to stop for a night or longer is the Hill... More
