Hill House Inn
Ranked #18 of 25 Mendocino B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 30, 2007

Clean and pleasant room that was larger than expected. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. Watched the sunset from second floor balcony in front of the restaurant. (Restaurant was closed Sun and Mon when we were staying at the Inn).

Walking distance to the town of Mendicino, although there is a short distance you must walk on the road without a sidewalk. The town was quaint.

We used this as home base to tour Medincino wine country.

Would stay there again.

A couple of the locals recommended this hotel to us. For Mendocino, the rates were fair and the location at the top of the hill was beautiful. You can easily walk to town from the hotel. The bed, an important factor for us, was very comfortable. The desk clerk, the night we checked in was very friendly and helpful. While it is not on the ocean, its not far from it, including a beautiful cliffside view just around the corner.

Won't be back there--a wedding party was booked in all but 3 rooms of the inn. We weren't advised of this beforehand. The walls are a bit too thin. Lots of children running up and down the stairs, guests talking in the courtyards, etc. as the wedding broke up around 11:30 p.m. made for a noisy, sleepless night. Also, we had a big, nice room in #101, but a walkway light shone right in the window over our bed all night long.

A lovely setting. We could not afford the rooms with a direct ocean view, but there was public seating that gave nearly the same views. Just a short walk into Mendocino. Room was large, with a small balcony, and well above-average room decor. Nice garden and grounds. We had serious problems contacting them. The phone was not always answered even during normal business hours; e-mails were not always returned. To be fair, it was the end of the season. Restaurant was closed even in early October, finding breakfast in the village was a problem. Price paid $95 plus tax.

As always, our stay was a delight! Amanda & Sabryyah went out of thier way to make sure our first Anniversay was perfect! (We were married in Mendocino & had our reception at Hill House last year!) We stayed in the Bette Davis Suite which overlooked the grounds & ocean...we will definately be back next year, if not sooner! And make sure at breakfast you try the Indiana biscuits-YUMMY!

I recently Visited Mendocino for a small vacation with some friends. Being from Ohio I enjoyed the Great Surroundings of the Inn. I was treated with GREAT respect by the Employees and they very much made the stay enjoyable. We were greeted by a very respectable and very pleasant Levi at the front desk. He made sure that everything was to our liking and made sure we were informed on the many activities available to us. My stay was very much enjoyable and I plan on returning to stay with them very soon!

We've stayed in Mendocino before but this is the first time we have stayed in a hotel. The decision was a good one as we totally underestimated the time it would take us to arrive here from oregon and didn't get in until 11pm. This wasn't a problem for this hotel but a B&B might have been a different story.

The hotel is beautiful with lots of antique furniture throughout public areas and rooms which were massive. The hotel is located at the top of one of the main streets, no doubt within walking distance but if I recollect correctly the path runs out one block short of the hotel so it might be a walk in the dark. Perhaps this was why there was a torch in the room.

We had a fantastic breakfast in the hotel which enjoys nice views over the sea in the distance, perched as it is on a slight elevation.
