My husband and I spent a magical 2 days in this dream spot. We stayed in one of the garden suites - a spacious living room, comfortable bedroom and enormous marble bathroom - in a historic building (with a landmark water tower outside the entrance). It was a short stroll through the luxuriant gardens (Mendocino gardens are incredible, and this one is exuberant) to the main hotel building which housed the lobby, restaurant, cafe and bar. In this building we realized that the Mendocino Hotel is not only a haven for travelers, but also seems to be at the center of community life in Mendocino. Visitors and locals alike enjoy the elegant yet very friendly hospitality of this hotel. The innkeeper, Tom, was an active presence, welcoming people and moving through the lobby making sure that everyone was well taken care of. We ate all our meals at the hotel, as the atmosphere was so convivial and the food extraordinarily delicious. Even simple things were made with great flair - for example, I enjoyed the 8-grain porridge at breakfast, served with fresh fruit and cream. It was a delight to eat lunch up on the deck looking out over the coastal headlands. The hotel is right on the coast - one can walk out from the gracious and very civilized lobby and cross the street to a wild stretch of rock and water that must be one of the most beautiful spots on earth. I had never been to Mendocino before, but after this serendipitous experience, I hope to return often!
