We have stayed here many times in many different rooms, including Room 13 in which we stayed this time. The location of this room is perfect for the Music Festival with a view of the tent and the ocean, and we could hear the music from those concerts we did not attend. However, we left a day early because the... More

The hotel is beautiful from the outside. The lobby is warm and sumptuous and lulled us into thinking we were onto a good thing. We were travelling on a budget and stayed in the cheapest room available which was a hot little box with a smaller than standard double bed. What a squeeze! But we made exceptions for the price....

The unenthusiastic attitude of the receptionist did little to enamour us to thus property, she couldn't have cared any less that we were checking in. We were in a garden suite which was incredibly basic, coffee machine placed in the bathroom area, no spoons to stir your coffee if you gad been inclined to make it and very thin washed... More

I have been to numerous historic inns but this one is by far among the best. You can trust the photos on the website. It really is all that the photos show. Have dinner in the lounge instead of the dining room ...it will feel like you are in someone's living room in 1870.if you have more than one night... More

We booked this Hotel primarily because of its location as it is great. Mendocino is a lovely place to spend a few days, a good variety of shops within walking distance from the Hotel and places to eat (recommend the Mendocino Cafe near the Fire station as reasonably priced and excellent food). The view from the Hotel is breathtaking and... More

My husband and I had a great two night stay in room 325 (Prentice Room) in the garden suite part of the hotel, which is located behind the main building, on the corner of Ukiah St and Kasten St. We really loved the hotel's central location and historical ambiance. It feels as though you're in a wild west saloon while... More

The title gives the positives and we would definitely stay there again. The negative is that bits of the hotel are a bit faded and need refreshing, so might not be to everyone's taste. Having said that, we were charmed by the building and the public rooms that we used. We slept comfortably, the shower worked fine, the staff were... More

Room 25-A had a great view of the ocean (balcony shared with another room). However the facilities are badly outdated and in need of maintenance (strong smell of mildew in bathroom and visible damp on room walls). Housekeeping did not clear away our dirty glassware from the previous evening. Most importantly for other travelers, Wi-Fi did not work on top... More

This place reminds me of a hotel that would or could be haunted. The decor is reminiscent of old Victorian times of the early 1900s which I quite enjoyed. We stayed in a European room so it was small. The bed was creaky, but comfortable. I liked that the windows in the room opened up onto a deck. It was... More

The big disappointment at this property is the front desk staff. They need basic customer service training. Upon check in we were told " I don't know where the Trillium Restaurant is" and she wasn't going to find out in spite of it being less than one block from the hotel. The employees need service training as they are unfriendly... More
