So much character. Gorgeous place and scenery. Decent rates if booked online. The rooms in the back (9-10) are above the kitchen fans so things will start vibrating in the AM. Brunch at one of the two restaurants was top. And if you're a guest the coffee is strong, bottomless and on the house!

I have been to Mendocino several times but never stayed here until now. I have always loved the look from outside looking in and always wanted to stay. I booked a couple of rooms for myself and my mother-in-law. I thought the location was great since it's walking distance to everything. Check in experience was fine. Disappointment came when I...

Great location for exploring Mendocino. Very Victorian. We had a room in one of the houses behind the hotel. Large and comfortable. It had a fireplace which was great because we were there in the heart of the February storms. We would come back.

We didn't stay in the hotel. We had lunch. It's the 2nd time I've had lunch there. The decor is from another era, sort of Great Gatsby-ish. It's cool. Like my previous visit I had their French Onion soup- soooo good! My party of 5 had clam chowder, an Asian cabbage salad, wedge salad, fish & chips, hamburger and sweet...

This was our second stay st this classic hotel. It has a lot of history and charm. The regular rooms in the main hotel are very small and need refurbishing. However, the lobby is very inviting and their restaurant serves very good food. The huevos rancheros for breakfast were excellent. Staff is warm and friendly.

Absolutely one of the most charming places in Mendocino to stay. I love the atmosphere and the restaurant which is part of the property. Mendocino is a charming seafront village very much like what you would find in New England. The hotel is located in the center facing the ocean , and within walking distance of everything. The shops were...

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...
