    Pros and Cons

    The hotel is in need of a spruce up....curtains were tattered, sinks and tub worn, the exterior in need of TLC. Also, and I understand the challenges that the combo of a pandemic and extreme water emergency have created, but if you are not putting coffee makers in the room, you send a letter stating coffee will be in the lobby 25/7, then you have a sign on the door stating the lobby will be open at 6am but no one shows up until 7 for four days in a row you need to let guests know. On the plus side the room was spacious and the location excellent for walking to town and access to hiking.

    This is an older property but it is in a lovely area in downtown Mendocino. Get a room with a balcony. Certainly worth it. Plan accordingly. There are no refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms but they serve free coffee in the lobby.

    Very old decor through out and was pretty run down. Pillows on bed were thicker than any normal human head could tolerate. Could hear the neighbors through the walls. However, the location was very good and is a very short walk to the town. Lots of parking.

    So.we had a basic room garden view.Place was easy to get to.Grocery market with walking distance down a hill, if you didnt want to drive.Less than a 2minute drive from town of mendicino.If you remember the show "murder she wrote"from the 80's then this place is great.I saw a review 1 week before we left for trip that complained about the garden looking bad.What they didnt mention was at this time of trip they were and was in a drought situation.So I think its understable the garden might look rough.Only issues my wife and I had was there was no mini fridge that we saw.We were there for 2 days, no leftovers from dinners if we wanted to.Other thing was no screen on our windows, so if we wanted fresh air the window was wide open for bugs.Overall, it was a nice stay and give 3.5 of 5

    Pleasant Stay

    Staff was friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. My biggest issue is that trying to get dinner was a challenge upon arrival and breakfast in the morning was also a challenge. A restaurant that was scheduled to open nearby at 8am had a note on the door upon arrival that it wasn't opening that day until 11am. The Inn doesn't have a restaurant. Overall a pleasant enough stay.

    Been coming here since the '80's when it was upscale with a great restaurant. Slow slide to 'shabby gentile' Current owners/management amiable & working hard through pandemic, but no room service for our four day stay ! Rooms large, beds comfy, coffee, tea available in lobby. Will return & hope for some improvements. Hope accessibility improves too.

    Ocean view, open window and let the breeze it. Quiet, clean. No coffee maker in the rooms. Beds too firm for me but perfect for hubby. Would stay here again.
