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.
