Brewery Gulch is regularly rated as one of the best hotels in the world and it deserves that reputation. It is a small building with about a dozen rooms perched high above the coastline just south of Mendocino. During COVID they have been serving both a full breakfast and a full dinner to all guests - the food has been excellent and the service great. There is an outdoor deck where you can eat, have a drink, read a book or just contemplate the view. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Rooms on the upper floor have great views of the ocean and coastline.

My wife and I just stayed at Brewery Gulch for five nights and we never once had even the smallest concern about Covid-19. Your room is UV’ed before you arrive and no one ever enters your room after you check in (which you can do by email or phone). Masks are worn by everyone at all times except in your room. We had a very safe breakfast in bed everyday where again no one enters your room. They have reconfigured their happy hour and dinners so they are very safe but without losing any of their magic and quality. And all of their free extras are still available to you like coffee, tea, pastries, newspapers, games, magazines, books, and the biggest DVD collection of any B&B in the US, and they are made safe by having hand sanitizer at every location. And best of all, even with all of this in place, Brewery Gulch has not lost any of its warmth and charm- a truly wonderful stay! Mindy and Fred Meitz

Even without an ocean view, we loved our room. Quiet and comfortable. No AC but with provided fans and windows opened it cooled off well enough even in September. Soft beds and very good food for breakfast and wine hour. The wine hour serving was dinner enough for all but the largest appetites.

I agree wholeheartedly with all the other reviews. This place is a gem. The rooms and beds and pillows are very comfortable. The towels and amenities are better than average. Let me tell you about the food- Guests are treated to a 3 course meal in the evening. Salad and bread, then the main dish and finished with dessert. The 2 nights that we were there the dinner was excellent. In the morning you have a choice of about 8 unique dishes. The 2 that I had were both delicious. Kudos to the chef! Not only the meals, but the owner graciously offers Tasty wine and beer before dinner. You can eat inside or outside on the deck with all the beautiful birds Flying from tree to tree. The grounds are immaculate and very peaceful. Views are exceptional. Staff were all welcoming and very friendly. Lots of books, games, magazines and DVD’s available for use. I recommend this place to anyone. I hope to get back here someday.

I have been visiting the quaint coastal town of Mendocino since I was a kid and have stayed at most of the finer lodging(s). Having said that, BGI has raised the bar to beyond a 5 star rating! Both my husband and I enjoyed the quiet atmosphere, stellar view, the thoughtful room touches; including the high quality Molton Brown bath products and lush towels. The staff are cheerful, engaging and the entire property adheres to the strict guidelines put into place due to CV19 which gave us peace of mind. The owners are generous beyond measure- they pour 4 to 5 different wines and beers each evening which is followed by a three (3) course (complimentary) sit down dinner. We are foodies (see our TA restaurant reviews)..and we enjoyed two very memorable dinners and breakfast prepared by their talented in-house chef. Did I forget to say how delicious everything tasted? We have found the Mendocino coastal gem and if you are looking for a wonderful place to visit - BGI will deliver the hospitality and more; it is more than just a place!!!
