Mendocino Hotel and Garden Suites
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Mendocino
Reviewed June 13, 2013

We visit Mendocino every year and love the town and the hotel! The atmosphere, decor, oldy-wordy feel, the staff and the food all make our time at the Mendocino Hotel feel special, and like we have stepped back in time. Would recommend it to anyone who wants a special weekend in a beautiful corner of California.

Room Tip: The European style rooms have more character but the Garden Suites have more space.

There was hair in the bedding. Not just one, but many. The pad between the mattress and bottom sheet was covered in hair. Housekeeping was gone, so the lady at the front desk brought us some "clean" sheets for our bed. The new sheets were just a filthy and the employee had to go get more.The room was rundown. Wallpaper was peeling off of the walls.

We arrived the night Friday night of Memorial Day weekend and needed a place to stay because of a scheduling conflict with the place we had rented. Dena and the rest of staff at the Mendocino Hotel were great. We had flown in from the west coast and were very tired and they were able to give a suite in the main building at a reasonable rate. If you are looking for new and modern, this is not for you. The rooms are furnished with beautiful antiques. We had drinks at the bar and had a great time with staff and other patrons. Only "complaint" is the bar next door that stays open until 2:00 and was quite rowdy being the start of a holiday weekend.

Guest's that enjoy our historical ambience are constantly in our lobby relaxing by the fire with a glass of wine or having a bite to eat in the bistro or dining room. Memorial Day weekend can be noisy at the local watering holes but all locals mean well and for return visits guest can choose to stay in the Garden Suites area of our hotel that is removed from the Main St activities.

What a great combination - a great old historic hotel with connected comfortable suites so you get the best of both worlds. Our deluxe garden room was comfortable with its fireplace, sofa, soft chair and lots of space. Such a wonderful place to base our stay while exploring the town of Mendocino. Dinner in the old hotel's lounge was a highlight of our stay.

Always warms our hearts when guests appreciate our hotel for the escape from the modern world that it is. A slower pace always helps to reenergize our guests and the fresh air and beautiful Pacific Ocean along with our top notch service is just the ticket to relieve the stress from their very busy lives.

Stay away from the European rooms. Extremely noisy, tiny room, no telephone or TV, and shared bathrooms in the hallway. Interior rooms have windows that face into a light well that is only a foot wide and look directly into other rooms. The shared bathrooms had poor water consistency. We stayed there as little time as possible.

We had been to Mendocino many times before but never stayed at this hotel.
Since we like our own bathroom, chose a garden room.
Our room was spacious, had a fireplace, good beds and shower/bathtub.
The location was great but then nothing is far in this quaint/funky little town.
Had our bottle of wine and cheese in the comfortable bar at the main house in front of the fireplace - very enjoyable !
The only "fly in the soup" was the neglected garden which we remembered as beautiful and uplifting.

We had a wonderful room in the garden suites. It had a fireplace, wonderful queen bed, antique furnishings and a large bathtub with shower. The hotel is right on the main street in town with many interesting galleries and stores in walking distance. We also ate in the hotel restaurant/bar and had an excellent bowl of clam chowder and some crab cakes. The hotel itself is quite old, and is fun to just walk around and see some of the old pictures of earlier times. We went on a special weekend deal through groupon. Highly recommended.
