Sea Gull Inn Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #5 of 25 Mendocino B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 20, 2012

My sister and I stayed at this B & B for two nights, it was a wonderful experience. Jim greeted us upon check in and was most helpful, especially with places to eat around town. The room we had was very well decorated, clean and comfortable.
Breakfast was fantastic, it was very evident time, care and effort had gone into the preparation. It was also very nicely presented.
We would certainly recommend this B & B.

I wasn't as charmed with the Sea Gull Inn as other reviewers. It is in a good location and the breakfast was good, but the queen bed in the Geranium Room was horrible (at least if you're used to sleeping on a decent mattress). Also, as we were on a road trip we had more than just a weekend bag for luggage, and it was inconvenient to get wheeled luggage to the room (the dirt path did not work well).

The flowers around the inn were lovely, and a cut arrangement was in the room.

All in all, this room made me appreciate the hotel chains with good mattresses, pillows, and linens.

I should probably mention that I like modern much more than Victorian and that the weather was very cool when we were in Mendocino; nevertheless, I stand by an average rating and think that is kind.

While we are delighted that this guest found our location and breakfast to be good, we are disappointed and surprised to hear the bed was not to their liking. Since May 1, we have entertained guests in this room 3 out of 4 nights and of those guests, only two have commented specifically on the queen bed. One found it too hard, one found it too soft. Whether this guest was one of those or not we do not know, but so many others have commented on how well they slept and that the beds were ‘great’. With regard to the sandy driveway, while guests are certainly welcome to access their room via this alternate route, we encourage luggage to be brought through the (longer) main route with a brick pathway to avoid such difficulties. We regret this guest was not as charmed as others, but should they advise us as to their specific concerns, we would be happy to do our best to address them.

This was such a charming B&B! We stayed in the Geranium Room, and were completely enchanted. The room was so charming and well-decorated - and so large! The gardens outside the door were just as charming. It was so nice to be in a room without a TV; before bed there was just reading and peace and quiet. This is the quietest place I have ever, ever slept. The bed and the pillows are very comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and satisfying. I really enjoyed staying at the Sea Gull Inn.

I had a truly enchanting experience at this unique B&B. It is conveniently located downtown and is close to the local shops, galleries and restaurants. The hotel is surrounded by the beautiful and peaceful garden that attracts different singing birds. Stayed at the "Barn" suite that was very clean, cozy, spacious and private. The owners, Jim and Ayla, were very helpful and welcoming. In the morning they served delicious and healthy breakfast that you'll remember. Wish could of stayed longer than two days to enjoy it a little bit more. A special place with very special people.

This place is wonderful. I lived in Mendocino years ago and remember this place as being rundown. The new owners have done an amazing job of refurbishing the place. The gardens are amazing, the rooms are clean and quaint, the food is fantastic AND it's one of the least expensive places in town.
I'm so grateful to these people for making an affordable yet nice place to stay for those of us that can't afford a fortune, but still deserve a pleasant weekend away in a beautiful spot.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights and loved every bit of it. Great location...a very short walking distance to downtown and restaurants. Breakfast was served every morning to our room and was absolutely delicious...everything homemade. Jim and Ayla are very nice and the ladies that clean the rooms and work on Sundays were great. We had the best vacation in a long time, so relaxing! Thank you Jim and Ayla, we WILL be back.

Room Tip: Some rooms only have double beds...kind of small for 2 adults.
