I pride myself on being very adventurous traveler, willing to try all sorts of accommodations, so when I made last minute reservations for the Mendocino Hotel and was told there was only the European style ( it means a shared bathroom down the hall) rooms available, I was game to try something new, now of course the whole way there I was thinking how is this going to work ?? is there going to be some hairy guy shaving at the bathroom sink while I am showering or what ? ( insert clip of National lampoons European vacation here ;) ). when I arrived I found a wonderful Victorian Hotel, the lobby was large yet cozy and boasted a grand fireplace!. I checked into my room and was delighted to find that all though the bathroom was in the hall it was totally private and clearly marked when it was in use, plus there were 4 to choose from. (no random walk ins or door knocks.) I was delighted to always find the bathrooms available and freshly cleaned. The room was not huge but was perfect for a couple who spend a lot of their time out sight seeing or relaxing in the lobby bar area, I was perfectly content to lounge in bed ( very comfy by the way ) and read my book I love that the french doors opened on to a wrap around porch and allowed cool ocean breezes in, I even had breakfast delivered and had plenty of room to enjoy it with out feeling cramped ( try the eggs Benedict it's fab!!) I can imagine that the euro rooms aren't for everyone but if you are open to a new experience and not looking for a huge suite style room then you are in for a treat !
