During one of the worst storms we have ever had, inn staff made every effort to keep us comfortable. This has always been our favorite place to stay in Mendocino. It’s peaceful, dog friendly, and convenient to downtown.

Great location right above the cemetery. Short walk to town. Very helpful staff. The surroundings are beautiful but the rooms haven't been updated since Bette Davis stayed there and are run down and drafty.

It was great value. I only wished the room had a microwave Avon and a refrigerator. Attendant should have volunteered the information about the microwave in the (lobby) common area.
