Great stay at the Inn
The inn is immaculate, charming, quiet, and beautiful! It’s walking distance to everything in town, including the grocery store. There’s a shared fridge and microwave available to use on site, but there are no utensils, bowls, etc., so you’d have to bring your own. The owners are lovely and so helpful. And Jemma the sweet little cat likes to hang out and is slowly beginning to warm up to guests. Oh, and breakfast is yummy! It’s the perfect place to stay during your trip to Mendocino! WiFi works great too!

The Joshua Grindle Inn is a gem in Mendocino. The owners/staff were friendly, and helpful. The breakfast was very good including home made granola, fresh fruit, yogurts and wonderful fresh baked scones.

8/10 Very good

The history of the inn is fascinating and the location is convenient to the town of Mendocino. The furnishings are comfortable, if dated, and the accommodations for Covid were comforting. We enjoyed talking with the inn's owners who were very friendly and helpful.
