No onsite staff, except when the maids come through. Check in required in Mendocino town.. Good value for the $ in a pricey area. Will stay again,

Great location. Spacious suite, comfortable bed, amazing tub. We enjoyed our stay. Our only few complaints: the suite was very cold upon our arrival and the fireplace took most of the afternoon and evening to bring it to comfortable temp. The space heater provided was broken. The porch light motion sensor was broken and would come on when we were not at the door and turn off when we needed it to light so we could unlock. Also, we called to try to schedule a couples massage (twice) during our three night stay and never heard back, which was disappointing.

Heat not very controllable, beds roll around without much control, tiny space, not much area for walking, far from any conveniences.

Amenities were nice . We stayed at Inn at Buckhorn and drove to the top lodging area as directions were not clear. Helpful to let guests know there are two properties there.bottled water would be nice!

We had a little trouble finding where to check in, ended up coming in from the back side of Sweetwater Spa, but check in was easy and everyone was very friendly and knowledgeable. Having forgotten that I had already paid through Expedia, I inadvertently paid again at check-in, so make sure you have proof that you've already paid. We found the property and room easily, the view was fantastic, the room was clean and well stocked. We never used housekeeping. We brought our 9 month old Lab, and she was quite happy with the accommodations. Overall, it was a very nice relaxing stay.
