Hill House Inn
Ranked #18 of 25 Mendocino B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 27, 2012

This is a charming inn in northern california in the village of mendocino! My parents, sister, brother-in-law, their dog-rudy and i stayed there over this past Thanksgiving holiday. The rooms are furnished with lovely antiques. The staff was very attentive to our wants and needs from a mini fridge in my sister and brother-in-law's room to a space heater in the room I shared with my mom and dad. The only thing that I think they can improve on is their continental breakfast. They just need add a selection of cold and hot cereals for people to choose from.

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the ocean!

Our stay was made more memorable by the friendly helpful staff, particularly Menthie, who directed us to excellent restaurants and sights. Room was comfortable, although there were NO drawers for clothes. Breakfast could have more variety, but good.

I spent this Thanksgiving here with my friend, her 13yr old son, and our 2 small dogs. Kathy greeted us with great warmth and hospitality. She also pointed us in the direction of the best dinner table from which to enjoy the concert. Her banana muffins were delicious.

We booked two rooms over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. We got a dog friendly king room for ourselves and a 2 bed room for my parents and sister. We were put right next to each other and shared a deck area. Twas easily accessible for aged folks! KATHY was SSOOooooo accommodating. We got a refrigerator in our room and a space heater for our folks. When the ice in the ice machine was out - she went and filled a bucket for me. The breakfast and eating area were fabulous! Rooms were clean a decorated quite nicely! We have been to the area several times before and tried different places. Our search is over! We will return only to Hill House from here on out!

We spent our Thanksgiving Holiday at the Hill House Inn, Mendocino. Once again I can't say enough great things about this wonderful inn. The room are quite comfortable, extremely clean, quiet and that old charm in every room. The staff each and all are terrific, Kathy from the front desk, Monsoor (refills the candy dish...)one other young lady whose name escapes me at the moment (Jennifer, April (?) all great. The fellow at the breakfast, he certainly was working hard this weekend. The housekeeping staff. All in all, thank you for another wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Corner Suites are perhaps the best, but all rooms are great.

This hotel is in a beautiful locale in Mendocino, CA. Our room was very spacious, with a very comfortable bed. The room was kept very clean, and well supplied. Good maintenance. The staff was very friendly, and very definitely service-oriented. We would definitely return for another visit.

Don't bother. We were excited about our trip to the coast and although we had a great time it was not because of our accomodations. The Inn is tired looking and our room looked like it had not been updated since the 70's, it smelled musty, had a broken VCR and a TV that was a good 20 years old. There had been a tile repair in the bathroom that was done with unmatched tile, the bed sagged in the middle and the worst offense was the body hairs I found in the shower. The location and view were nice, but did not make up for all the other issues. Sorry, I have to be honest and I wish I had this information before we booked our room.
