So caveat... I came here on our honeymoon at the very last day of our stay. I had a friend recommend it and I was looking for some old world charm. While I think it would have been fine if it was just me or I had been prepared for it alas that was not the case. The room looked...

This hotel has old world charm. The accommodations were very comfortable for a one night stay. It is within walking distance to the rocky coast for a spectacular view. The staff was very friendly. Although we did not have the opportunity to dine at the hotel, the menu offerings looked scrumptious. We enjoy staying at smaller and/or refurbished hotels, so...

This is a quaint seaside hotel. From the front, there is a beautiful view of the ocean; however, we ended up in a separate building a block behind the original hotel. The hotel was renovated back to a version of it's 1800's character and is really quite lovely as are the rooms. The food in the restaurant is good but...

Stopped in while exploring cute town of Mendocino. Had soup of the day, butternut squash which was awesome. Not nutmeg-spicy, tasted like squash, super smooth and creamy. Also had local(ish) wine and beer. Shaved prime rib sandwich was great too. Awesome bread. Definitely recommend sweet potato fries. Service was good, sat in bar.

Our friends had planned a trip from SF to Mendocino for the weekend. We booked what we thought was an adorable little room for four and head to the hotel on a short road trip. We arrived and checked in, then moved all of our luggage to the room we were assigned. To our surprise, the room was filthy. Not...

The Mendocino Hotel & Gardens is a vintage hotel in the unique setting in Mendocino. There is the hotel proper, and there are separate properties within the proximity of the hotel. As luck would have it, we were located in the handicapped assessable room in one of the separate properties even though we are not handicapped. This was because Highway...

We had a great room in (13) overlooking the ocean. Very clean and great bed. We only had some Clam Chowder to eat which happened to be adequate at best. The downstairs is really.

Dating back to 1878, this hotel has loads of character and is within walking distance to everything in Mendocino.
