We stayed at the Hill House Inn in 2004 and loved it. This trip, sadly, presented an inn in apparent decline. The restaurant is closed. The advertised robes were delivered only after a pleading request. Wireless works only in the lobby. Things in the rooms were broken (the clock) or well worn--on the edge of shabbiness. On the up side,... More

Picked this out because of price and description in AAA Travel Guide and were pleasantly surprised to see how nice it was and where it was located. We planned on staying one night while touring coastal California but liked the place so much we stayed 3 nights, 23-25 October. Beautiful place. Sabryyah was a most gracious hostess on check-in as...

We went to Hill House Inn because we had heard through a friend about how close it was to the town of Mendocino and the ocean...the room was large and spacious and the fireplace gave us just the what we needed in terms of our honeymoon. At ages 61 and 69, we wanted comfort and quiet and thet is just... More

Clean and pleasant room that was larger than expected. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Watched the sunset from second floor balcony in front of the restaurant. (Restaurant was closed Sun and Mon when we were staying at the Inn). Walking distance to the town of Mendicino, although there is a short distance you must walk on the road... More

A couple of the locals recommended this hotel to us. For Mendocino, the rates were fair and the location at the top of the hill was beautiful. You can easily walk to town from the hotel. The bed, an important factor for us, was very comfortable. The desk clerk, the night we checked in was very friendly and helpful. While... More

Won't be back there--a wedding party was booked in all but 3 rooms of the inn. We weren't advised of this beforehand. The walls are a bit too thin. Lots of children running up and down the stairs, guests talking in the courtyards, etc. as the wedding broke up around 11:30 p.m. made for a noisy, sleepless night. Also, we... More

A lovely setting. We could not afford the rooms with a direct ocean view, but there was public seating that gave nearly the same views. Just a short walk into Mendocino. Room was large, with a small balcony, and well above-average room decor. Nice garden and grounds. We had serious problems contacting them. The phone was not always answered even... More

As always, our stay was a delight! Amanda & Sabryyah went out of thier way to make sure our first Anniversay was perfect! (We were married in Mendocino & had our reception at Hill House last year!) We stayed in the Bette Davis Suite which overlooked the grounds & ocean...we will definately be back next year, if not sooner! And... More

I recently Visited Mendocino for a small vacation with some friends. Being from Ohio I enjoyed the Great Surroundings of the Inn. I was treated with GREAT respect by the Employees and they very much made the stay enjoyable. We were greeted by a very respectable and very pleasant Levi at the front desk. He made sure that everything was... More

We've stayed in Mendocino before but this is the first time we have stayed in a hotel. The decision was a good one as we totally underestimated the time it would take us to arrive here from oregon and didn't get in until 11pm. This wasn't a problem for this hotel but a B&B might have been a different story.... More
