My wife and I trying to spend a quite weekend in Mendocino. Shock number 1: beware of the suites at Macallum House Inn. Just when you finally want to stop driving, you find that they are located 4 long blocks away of the main building almost outside of town. That means you walking out in the cold to get to your included breakfast, enjoy the bar, or the sitting room. I booked through Expedia and of course no one notified us about this. After paying over $200 for a night, I requested to be moved to a room in the actual building and that was a nightmare. We finally had to settle for a different room for each of the 2 nights we were there.
Shock number 2: if you like to dine in, make sure you eat early as their kitchen closed at 8:30 p.m. on a Friday evening. This, my wife and I found out, after a very long drive arriving in Mendocino. Not good.
Did I also mentioned: moldy walls in the Water Tower room, ants in the Jennie Blair, and $4 for a glass of orange juice (not included in the breakfast). How cheap can you get?
So, given the beauty of the property, this was at some point a great place to stay, but it was certainly our last.
