glad to see that over the years the landscaping has been developed, and I have to say they have a lovely Victorian garden. We had room 322, which was a garden suite. It was very quiet, and we enjoyed our private porch that was surrounded by greenery. It was a bit of a challenge getting the doors open, as they... More

Stopped in twice for lunch and fell in love with this magnificent historic old hotel. Love the decor and the wait staff were most pleasant. Had the crabcakes and for desert was french vanilla ice cream with Ollie berry syrup - delicious!

We have always stayed at the Little River Inn, but could not pass up the deal to stay at the Mendocino Hotel. We had a room in one of their garden suites which was... More

Excellent location near the ocean. We had a garden suite room, which was large and comfortable. Helpful reception staff who were empathetic to our needs. Dining area and public rooms decorated in Victorian style.

We enjoyed our stay. We had an upstairs room in the "garden" section. It was quiet and cozy. I can't remember ever having stayed in a hotel room that has lace curtains. I liked the old-fashioned decor. At age 62, think I was one of the youngest guests. Loved the bar area; we enjoyed a martini and a manhattan. We... More

Used a Travelzoo coupon for a very good rate in a Garden Suite. This is in a separate building behind the hotel. We had room 311, upstairs, very spacious, king bed, sofa and two chairs and fireplace. All the furniture was worn. Small view of the ocean. Note rooms in the hotel are "European" = shared bath in the hall.... More

I was recently at the Mendocino Hotel and Garden Suites to celebrate the 40th wedding anniversary of my partner's parents. This is a short and to the point review. 1. The only reason to book a room of the hotel is to book a room with a view of the ocean. There are not that many, so book early. My... More
