Wouldn't have wanted to stay anywhere else in Fort Bragg/Mendocino. HCR has character. Willow is dark, but it was right for us. Breakfasts were delish and filling. Plenty of places to sit/read/walk. It was freezing and foggy, but heaters in room kept us warm. If you want sterile, stay away! If you want to get away and enjoy the coast, a stay here will fulfill. So glad for the experience. Theresa was a bonus.
