We drove into mendocino without rerservations and expectations. As we made the loop through the town a took in the lay of the land we chose the "Hill House" and were not disapponted. The 2nd floor room had a wonderful view of the sunset as we kicked back on our balcony. While the rooms need some updating, our King room... More

Thanks so much to the other contributors for your reviews. We also went on a Groupon and were delighted with our stay. Yes the walls were abit thin but this is something you would expect from an older establishment. The staff very helpful and friendly. The period funiture was gently used as described in other posts.

We are happy to know that the Groupon promotion was successful in creating new guests for Hill House that may not have had the opportunity to enjoy our facilities in the past. We also like to know when we fall short in regards to the ice bucket/housekeeping. We thank all of our guests for the kind comments and we hope... More

We stayed at the Hill House Inn for two nights (2/17/12 - 2/18/12) and were very pleased with the accommodations. The room was large and well furnished with windows on two sides and a pleasant view, While not in "downtown" Mendocino it is about a two block walk thereto and is convenient to everything in town. We have been going... More

We enjoy hearing from guests who appreciate the Hill House, the staff and the great location so close to shops and restaurants! Our guests have been using the 15% discount at our sister property The Mendocino Hotel for some time and they always come back to the Inn happy and full. Staying just outside of the village is peaceful and... More

For my wife's birthday, I treated her to two days in Mendocino CA at the Hill House Inn. From the moment we arrived to the day we turned in our keys, they treated us as if we were friends or neighbors. The room was upgraded to a suite and it was clean and comfortable...we stayed in the Bette Davis suite.... More

My husband and I booked this trip through groupon and were looking forward to a VERY relaxing weekend away from work. The deal was great, HOWEVER, had we known that there was a birthday bash going on this weekend, we would have cancelled. The booming music was thundering through our room (which happened to be right next door to the... More

This is our third bed and breakfast in the Mendocino area. We used a groupon discount which provided a fantastic cost savings and included a free bottle of wine. We got a corner room with an ocean view and gas fireplace. As others have noted, the hotel staff is very warm and friendly, but the place is a bit shabby.... More

We have just returned from a wonderful two-night stay at Hill House. The hotel is located within an easy walk of the village. If you do the Mendocino Headlands walk, it's about a 2-mile loop from the hotel, all along the bluffs, through the village, and back to the hotel--probably a bit longer when you walk all the trails. We... More

We stayed at the Hill House in for two nights in mid-January using a Groupon for an ocean view room. The staff were very friendly, and we were upgraded at check-in to a deluxe ocean view room (#222), which had a decent ocean view, a balcony and a gas fireplace. The inn is worth the discounted price, but I would... More

My wife and I enjoyed an early January two-night stay at the Hill House Inn. The weather could not have been better...sunshine the three days we were there (highly unusual for January). We had booked using a Groupon deal which cut the room rate in half and included a wonderful bottle of Zinfindel. Our room was an ocean view (really... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights between Christmas and New Years on a Groupon deal. We stayed in Room 226 and had a very nice ocean view and the room was larger than most places we have stayed. Loved being so close to town - no worry about parking when you can walk!
