You can tell that the Mercantile Hotel is a labor of love for the owners, Kevin and Darlene. The work they have done to renovate this building is beyond impressive. On top of that, they are gracious and accommodating.
Each room has a character of its own. We stayed in the Arts and Crafts room. It is huge, spotlessly clean, and beautifully appointed. The windows face the back of the building with a lovely view of the trees. Rooms across the hall face the main street. This room is right off the common area (microwave, coffee, fridge, table, couches, games, small library). We liked that because it was convenient, but there is little sound proofing, so if you like it to be very quiet, then I would suggest asking for a room at the other end of the hall.
Things you may want to know:
There is no elevator and I did not find a hair dryer or iron. Wifi in the room is intermittent, but seems to work well in the common area. For the size of this room, storage was lacking. There was one small dresser and the antique armor did not quite cut it as a closet. There were no hooks and only one towel bar in the bathroom, and no shelving in the shower. For one night, this would not be an issue, but we stayed for five nights, so the lack of storage was kind of inconvenient. On the other hand, the decor, the double sink, and the amazingly comfortable claw foot tub made up for the missing amenities (and Kevin and Darlene said they would add hooks and a better closet).
The McCloud Mercantile Hotel is charming and so is McCloud. There is so much to do in the area or you can do nothing at all, sit on the porch, and watch the tiny world of McCloud go by. We loved this Hotel and we will definitely be back!
