“Nicest staff ever!!!”
Reviewed November 12, 2012 via mobile

We are traveling up the coast and needed a pet friendly hotel for the night. The woman at the desk, Karen, could not have been nicer. She was very welcoming to me and the dogs. The room itself was clean and basic, which is all that we required. There are muffins for breakfast. I highly recommend this motel.

Thank You! Thank You! I always like it when reviewers recognize our staff. The staff at the Seabird is indeed great--housekeeping, maintenance and desk staff. We have the friendliest staff at any inn on the Mendocino Coast!! Since I am the muffin man, let me tell you what kinds of muffins I made today: One of the favorites--Chocolate/chocolate chip. I also made Orange/cranberry. Another top favorite is blueberry -- but the Lemon poppyseed and Raspberry/white chocolate chip muffins are also near the top of the list. On occasion I make corn muffins with cheddar cheese and green onions-- a little different, but popular never the less. Next time you visit the coast please stay at the Seabird-- the place with the friendliest folks and friendly room rates, too.

Stayed here one night whilst travelling down the west coast in the summer. Rooms very "retro" and had a scent a bit like an old folks home but lady at desk very friendly, free internet and nice touches at simple breakfast like selection of homemade muffins. If you don't mind the style then it;s a nice place although a little out of town, plenty of parking along main street though.

Glad the reviewer had a nice trip down the coast. He seems, however, to have the Seabird and another inn scrambled together. We are in town, have plenty of parking, are not on Main Street, are not "retro"--but do have the friendliest staff and serve the best muffins around. We hope this reviewer and everyone else stays at the Seabird when visiting the Spectacular Mendocino Coast. See you soon!!!!

The 2 ladies at the front desk were excellent/friendly/super great. We stayed for 2 nights (my daughter & I) and the price was great and the hotel/room clean. They have a pool and spa which is inside. They don't have a full breakfast but what they do have it good -- homemade muffins & yogurt, juice, coffee and hot chocolate. The ladies there gave us day trip ideas and recommended a great restaurant in the area for dinner. Would stay again when in the area.

Room Tip: upstairs hwy 1 side to look out at the beach area

We are on a road trip with our 2 dogs. We are not fussy about where we stay. We want it clean, quiet and priced reasonably. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The room decor is dated but everything was very clean and nothing was broken or missing. The breakfast was continental with delicious home-made muffins, yogurt, OJ, coffee etc. The coffee was not very good. The pet fee of $10/room was very reasonable, a big plus for me. I definitely would stay again if in the area.

Thanks for posting a review of the Seabird. I enjoy making the muffins for our guests. This morning we are serving Chocolate/Chocolate Chip, Bran/Zucchini, Lemon Poppyseed, and the all time favorite Blueberry. Pets are welcome here--in selected rooms. We'll even take a photo of the pet with its master to add to our pet board. One of our most unusual pet/guests was a Eurasian Eagle Owl--Even though his visit was a few years ago we have kept the photo on our pet board. On your next visit be sure to check out the photos. As an additional note please know that our very dedicated housekeeping staff does an extra thorough cleaning of each room that had a pet. We charge the $10 pet fee to cover the cost of the added time houskeeping spends to clean these rooms. And thank you for mentioning the friendliness of our staff. We have the best!!! Hope to see you again soon.

I booked this on other reviews and was not disappointed, good size room and comfy bed. Nice choice of continental breakfast with coffee and tea. A little out of town where the best restaurnts are but not a problem. Only stayed one night with my wife but would certainly return again.

Thanks for the nice review! Glad you had a nice stay. Yes, the Seabird is a great value! Why pay Mendocino prices when you can stay here? Spend your saved money on a great dinner at one of the coast's many restaurants. See you on your next trip to this beautiful part of the world.

Stayed here for one night, on a spur of the moment road trip. Room was ready at check-in. The front desk people were all extremely friendly and helpful. We got to the room, which was pretty dated. It didn't look dirty, just kind of old. We slept fine and the price was right, so I can't complain too much. They take dogs which is great. All and all it was fine. The decor just needs some updating.

Maybe I am biased, because I am an animal lover and was greeted by a friendly dog when i walked into the office. So I started out smiling, and then learned that the women in charge do rescue work. The good folks who save dogs from death row and my heroes. The place was very clean, they pay attention to details. The room was large and had a small fridge and microwave and in-room coffee, and the coffee was organic. Nice touch! They don't advertise a free breakfast, so I was pleasantly surprised to see they offer complimentary muffins (many varieties), orange juice (the good stuff, not from concentrate), and yogurt.

Another pleasant surprise was a balcony with an ocean view.

Room Tip: ask for a second floor room facing the ocean.
