Mendocino Stay ... Advice please

We are planning to spend a couple of days in Mendocino at the end of June. I am trying to decide between:

Headlands Inn

Joshua Grindel


John Dougherty inn

Which is closer to the Ocean?

Which is more "romantic"?

How is the fog situation at this time of year?

Thanks for any input!!

Alegria is most front and center to the ocean, as you will see from the photos on the websites. If an inn is in the "village" it is usually a short walk to the ocean, you can walk across the village in ten minutes. The fog is usually pulled in by high heat inland. Often this is July and August when the inland temps are 90 to 100 degrees. People love coming to the coast to cool off with our moderate temperatures. June should still be clear and sunny depending on global warming... If it is sunny here it is often windy, if it is foggy there is no wind.

I have a feeling that the Mendocino area would be beautiful, even with the fog. If we can't fit it in this trip, definitely next. Thanks for the input!

Actually, I am seeking advice in this forum about Mendocino.

I am planning a trip north from San Francisco to Portland in Lae June. I'm wondering if I should take a more inland route via Napa valley for wineries and hot springs or a more coastal route via Mendocino for seascapes and giant trees. As time is an essence, I can only allow two days in either region.

Heard that there is a garden in Port Briggs. Is it worth the visit? Does this stretch of coast rivals that of the Oregon Coast?
