My husband and I along with our two dogs had a wonderful stay in the Shangri-la. It was a gorgeous view from our cliff side suite. The dog supplies were waiting for us upon arrival in our room. Bedding pillows, bowls, and treats were all provided although we had come prepared with our own dog beds and etc. This is...

This is our all time favorite spot on the Mendocino Coast, and we've stayed there so often -- at least a dozen times -- that it feels like home. Last weekend, we stayed in the Captain's Watch for the second time. It is spacious, bright, and airy, and includes a comfortable bed, a coffee maker, a nice spa tub, and...

Very cute and inviting place! Our room was extremely clean and welcoming for us and our pup, with a small bottle of wine and wonderful dog accommodations including bowls, treats, and a dog bed. We booked late (the weekend before) so our options were limited but our ocean front room was very nice with a fireplace and nice size balcony...

Was very impressed with the cleanliness of the place considering it was pet friendly! Very friendly and helpful staff. Locally owned so they can tell you the ins and outs of the area!! Rentals are up to date, quiet, clean which matters to us. Great views from the Whale Watch and Captains Rooms!! Would go back!!

My husband and I stayed one night at the Inn at Schoolhouse Creek this February. The location was convenient to Mendocino and the State Parks, the view of the ocean was excellent, and it was quiet. However, I was quite distressed to discover the floors in the bathroom of the Rose Cottage. The linoleum was soft and gave underfoot --...

Originally, I had booked a 2 bedroom with a kitchen and fenced yard. Shortly after, I received a call from the Inn at Schoolhouse asking if I could consider changing rooms to a smaller room ( a studio) with a fenced yard, but no kitchen. It was added “the room has a hot tub, and we wont charge you extra.”...

I received a massage that (at least in large part) relieved chronic pain in a knee that had been prevalent for years. The views, service, and every part of the experience was wonderful! I'd recommend staying here for a romantic weekend away.

The Schoolhouse In is everything you (or your dog) could hope for in a California coastal inn(or anywhere), but it has, hands down, the best breakfast anywhere in CA, or perhaps the USA. The raft is to die for, and if you have a sweet tooth and are really hungry, don't miss the french toast!

Stayed here in April 2015 with a family of four and our dog - the reason for picking this hotel, as they are dog friendly. I found it a wee bit worn-looking... but not much, and that was more than made up for by the friendly service, especially in the restaurant. They have a separate dining room where dogs are...
