We stayed during the 4th of July long weekend at this place. I have been going to Mendocino for over 8 years now, this place is super pricey for basic amenities.
We arrived on the day of check in at 3.30pm(as the check in was stated as 3.00pm), the room was not cleaned. Cleaners were just walking in. The guy at the front desk was fairly rude and said that the rooms need to be cleaned and we have to wait for an hour. No apology or even a remote sense of professionalism, He was telling us off saying that it was a busy day and the rooms are not ready.
Wonder if the same excuse would apply if I checked out 2 hours late and don't plan on paying for my delay?
Delays happen, the least the hotel is to do is be apologetic, I was ticked off after a long drive with my young child.
Kitchen utensils were not cleaned properly, a lot of the vessels had scrap food...certainly did not appreciate this.
We asked for dishwashing soap at least 4 times in our 3 day stay, it is yet to be provided. We bought our own.
They claim to be "going green" by not doing house cleaning everyday in the hotel room - just imagine how dirty the rooms would get with a beach near by, with young kids and a dog.
Every time I requested their service, the cleaners would change the towels and would not even mop the floor. The floor was filthy with beach sand throughout our stay.
The place seems to be skimping on money and call it as going green
All this would have been tolerated to some extent if the room rate was reasonable.
I paid 290$ per night + 75$ pet fee. The total was about 340$ per night.
I stayed at Hyatt Hotel in Times Square NY last year for the same rates and world class service.
I know Mendocino is expensive, but 340 for such a mediocre place is ridiculous !
