My wife wanted to spend a weekend (Fri-Mon) near Mendocino so I bit the bullet to pay this higher than usual resort area hotel price (we used Hotwire.com). But it was well worth the extra money! Our room looked like it had just been recently renovated since everything seemed brand new, carpet, beds, furniture, TV, walls, etc. Great shower, granite counters in bathroom, and the breakfast was the best free hot breakfast we have ever had in any hotel anywhere! I think someone complained about the food choices, but we could not understand why. Here is a list of what they offered (please excuse our memory in case we forgot something!) - boiled eggs (already shelled), scrambled eggs (or small omelettes on another day), bacon (ham slices another day), low fat or fat free milk, cold cereal, pancakes, toast/bagels, fresh fruit, juices, coffee, Yoplait yogurt, cinnamon rolls (these were really good!), hot water to make hot chocolate or cider or tea. The eating area might get a bit crowded at times during the breakfast hours (6:30-9:30am) but they had a few extra tables just outside a sliding glass door as well as additional seating in their lobby area.
This hotel even had a nice indoor pool and exercise room. Free wireless internet. Location was excellent on 20, just a few blocks east from Highway 1, but far enough away to avoid most of the traffic noise. Some convenient shopping just across the street included Rite Aid, Harvest Market, Papa Murphy, Subway, etc. McDonalds also very close by. Safeway and Starbucks also close.
If you stay at this hotel, you might ask if all their rooms are recently renovated. If not, ask for one that is newer and ask for a room with an inside hall access. I noticed some of their rooms opened directly to the outside.
