Small B&B close to town centrePosted Aug 1, 2014
Pros: Comfortable and central
Cons: A more friendly and outgoing approach from the staff.
Location: Mendocino is a charming town with some lovely shops
This suited our need for a one-night stop in Mendocino. We particularly enjoyed meeting new people at the communal breakfast table.

Lovely Inn in Mendocino!Posted Jul 20, 2014
Pros: I loved the furnishings. The very comfortable bed and roomy bathroom. It was on a nice quiet street, yet close to downtown. Very convenient location
Location: Very close to downtown Mendocino, shops, art galleries, and the beach. Also the music festival was happening! The beach is about two blocks away.
The Nicholson Inn is a lovely bed and breakfast. My room was beautiful, very nicely appointed, with lovely furnishings. It had lots of space, with a dresser, bed, and two arm chairs. The bathroom was spotless and had good lighting and plenty of space. I loved it and will definitely return. A great place to relax and enjoy Mendocino. It is conveniently located to all the shops and the beach. A great place to stay!

Fine place.Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: Location is good. The breakfast was excellent.
Cons: It's an old building, that has been fixed up. It will never seem modern, if that is what you want... But it was very comfortable.
On-street parking was not a plus, since we had bikes on the back of the car overnight. But there was no problem. The stairs to the upper story are steep. Not for the old and feeble. But those are the rooms which are guaranteed to have been pet-free. Because of lung allergies, that was a requirement for us. The wi-fi was located in the adjacent office building, and the signal was weak in the room. The data rate was low, but fine for e-mail. Overall, the place was excellent.

The room was very small. Heard the people in other rooms. Very concerned about our pet in the room. So not to be charged for more costs. The manager that accepted was very short. My first experience in a bed & breakfast was not the best.

Wonderful Couples RetreatPosted Jul 1, 2014
Pros: The location was awesome. Quiet, but within walking distance to everything. The breakfast was wonderful. There is a great deck on the back.
Cons: I didn't find the guy behind the desk to be very personable and the walls were a little thin, but otherwise it was great.
Location: Mendocino is quaint and picturesque and there are wonderful restaurants and fun shopping. It is a great place for a romantic weekend.
We had a wonderful weekend. This was a great place to stay. Quiet and peaceful, but within walking distance of everything in town. The breakfast was wonderful with lots of options. Not really a place for kids, but a nice place for a couples get-a-way.

A cheaper place to stay, but at a cost.Posted May 29, 2014
Pros: Overall charm.
Cons: Windows: they were either stuck or misshaped.
Nice staff. Hotel itself is basic. Thin walls. [Expedia is asking me to add more to my review but I do not know what else to say so I am including this sentence just as filler.]

Excellent stay at nicholson bed and breakfast innPosted May 28, 2014
My son and i stayed one night at nicholson inn. Brent, the manager was welcoming and informative, about places to eat and where the art center was located. The breakfast buffet had fresh strawberries, blueberries, and bananas on the large table in the office where it was served. A basket of warm scones, and assortment of whole grain bread, bagels, hard boiled eggs, salami and sliced cheeses and yogurt, as well as coffee and orange juice were in the breakfast area. All in all, this is a nice inn to stay.

ConvenientPosted May 23, 2014
Pros: Convenient to restaurants.
Cons: Newer mattress.
Location: Mendocino is, of course a great place with a good variety of restaurants. Close to ft. Bragg, Point Arena. Driving up through Anderson Valley, nice!
Room was quite small, not even a small table. Bed was not very comfortable. Signs all over the place asking to conserve water but had no low flow devices. Shower was so forceful it actually created a breeze. No TV in room. Parking on street.

Our Stay at Nicholson House InnPosted May 20, 2014
Pros: Location, owner, dogs, views.
Cons: Sound proofing....the walls were paper thin. We could hear everyone, and they could hear us!
Location: Shop downtown Mendocino, drive to Fort Bragg and go to Sea Glass Beach (awesome), run along the bluffs(trails everywhere) rent kayaks at VanDamme Park
Very convenient to downtown Mendocino. The owner was very nice and helpful and we loved his dogs. Breakfast was delicious, fresh local fruit, granola, eggs, scones(very good) everything you would want. The view from our room was great, as probably was every room's view. It is right next to restaurant "955" which we made reservations for on Friday night. We enjoyed it very much, also convenient. Overall, a great stay.

Needs a woman's touchPosted May 19, 2014
Pros: Good condition. New coat of paint. Modern bathrooms.
Cons: We stayed two nights. There was no housekeeping service, so the room wasn't cleaned. Breakfast was so-so.
Location: B&B is at the far end of town, but Mendocino is not that big, so it only took a few minutes to walk to the shops and restaurants.
B&B is run by two brothers, only one of whom is onsite. While friendly, we were not shown to our room or around the facility as most hosts do. After spending the first night, we were disappointed to come back and find our room had not been cleaned. Breakfast was some breads, cold cuts, fruit, and soft/hard boiled eggs.
