“Great Mendocino Location”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

My GF and I began a Northern California Road trip by driving up from Berkeley to Mendocino, we stayed two nights in the Nicholson House Inn.

The room was clean and well appointed, the bed comfortable, and the location perfect for walking the streets of Mendocino, hiking on the headlands, or going out for morning coffee, afternoon drinks and dinner. Located two steps away from the Sweetwater Spa and Hot tubs, right across the street from Cafe Beaujolais, we parked the car on Saturday and didn't move it again until we left on Monday afternoon.

Although "breakfast" is included in the room price, unless you're content with the food at Holiday Inn Express, you may want to make other plans for the morning. The only down side to our experience was the smell of burnt toast permeating the building between 8:30-9:-30 AM.

Over-all a good value.

Pulled in without a booking. Was shown to a room straight away despite disturbing the owner out of hours. The room was comfortable, smallish, very cutely decorated, and with a small private bathroom. Bed was tall, four poster and comfortable. Breakfast was a tasty continental with the added bonus of boiled eggs (which i liked). We received helpful recommendations for our evening meal (ate at the pub; great choice). Would definitely stay again.

After the long pretty drive up from SFO on a beautiful day, Brent(?) was very helpful with location info on groceries, restaurants, and all that is Mendocino. The room was comfortable and affordable. Two days in the area followed by the drive down to St. Helena via 128/29 was a very nice escape. I wish I could articulate on the breakfasts but I was out about (Ft. Bragg and state parks) before and during meal time. I did my homework on prices and found The Nicholson House to be one of the less expensive B&B's in the area. I did have a partial ocean view from my room...

I take a trip with my boyfriend every year to Mendocino. We have stayed at four different places and Nicholson House Inn was by far the best place. We had one the suites where you get a kitchen and living space which was located on the first floor. The Inn was centrally located to everything and the breakfast spread is by the far best I have seen in my life time. Plus the suite was pretty affordable.

The owner of Nicholson is such a nice man, but I think it's worth mentioning that the breakfast is continental-style and it starts later in the morning. It was a big spread and the scones were very, very good but I'm used to warm breakfasts at B&Bs (in fact to me a warm breakfast is the biggest selling point), so I was disappointed on that front. In addition, our room shared a door with another room and there was no soundproofing. We had light of it, but man it could make for an awkward situation if you're there with family!

We stayed for a weekend at the Nicholson House. We booked Grandma's room. The room is cute, clean, and small with a private bathroom. However the bed is very tall and we had to use the stepper to get in and out of it.
Breakfast is good, and it is served by the owner between 8:30AM and 9:30AM in the living room which is a small area. The location is in town, and we walked everywhere. The price was very reasonable.
