8/10 Very good

Quaint little spot
Finding myself on my own for the holidays, I decided to make a short trip to Mendocino, and area that I love. I checked in on Christmas Eve, and stayed for two days. The bed was incredibly comfortable, and I was pleased to have a fireplace, sitting area, small refrigerator and coffee maker. The receptionist at the front (I wish I could remember her name) was incredibly helpful in advising me which places would hold Christmas Eve services, and made sure I had anything I needed. The service was personal and I felt right at home. There are a few things to note - check in timeframe is limited, so make sure that you are aware. The room itself is very large and comfortable, but not luxurious. I certainly would stay again, but it is definitely more "homey and quaint and comfortable" than luxe. I thought it would have a microwave as described, but my room did not. I didn't end up needing it, but still it would have been nice to have the room as described. The spa area could also have used some attention, but it was not my priority. The location is tucked away and it can be easy to miss the entrance; that said, it is far enough back not to hear any road traffic. I loved the location, and it was close enough (2.5 miles) to the town of Mendocino for my tastes. All said, the value was very good and would not hesitate to stay there again.

Anniversary in Mendocino
We came to Mendocino to celebrate our 41st wedding anniversary. Having never been to Mendocino before, we weren't quite sure where to stay. While this is an older property, it was very quiet and a great place to just unwind. The staff there are beyond helpful. While they do have a continental breakfast, it's a little on the slim side, but still nice.

Quick quiet get away at the right price!
Stay was just what my husband and I needed! A quick trip to the coast, one of my favorite places in the world. The front desk person, Kate, was very nice and friendly. I loved having a fire place in the room with complementary fire logs. :) The grounds of the hotel are quaint and they do have two hot tubs which I did not have time to check out, but might in the future. Would recommend for someone looking for a nice clean friendly hotel at a good price. It was just 2 minute drive to the main city of Mendocino where we ate and did some light shopping. You could see a sliver of the ocean from parts of the rooms. Of course once you get into Mendocino it's all ocean views- just gorgeous!

Wonderful staff, beautiful location
Upon check in we were shown around the inn by Kate, who also told us everything we needed to know about amenities, etc. We were also given an FAQ sheet, places to eat in the surrounding areas, and a map of Mendocino. All very helpful and with a personal touch. It was the off season, but the inn was very quiet and peaceful. We barely saw any other guests at all, let alone were bothered by any noise. The room was beautiful and extremely clean and the bed was SUPER comfortable. Every staff member we met was extremely kind and helpful. We very much enjoyed our weekend and will definitely be back if we are in the area!
