2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Liked the location of the property downtown and across from the ocean. Didn’t like the condition of the room with peeling wallpaper, cracked sinks, non-operating fireplace and worse of all ants in the bathroom. The bed was very uncomfortable with both of us waking up with sore backs. The entire place looked run down. The wonderful restaurant and beautiful bar were not opened due to Covid and didn’t appear that they would reopen in the near future. Not sure why they didn’t have outside seating for the restaurant like the other area restaurants provided. It’s a shame as this is normally a charming location. Such a shame.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Property is located in the middle of town, which is ideal. They do not have a microwave or refrigerator in the room, which is something I really prefer to have. No elevator, one flight of steps. At my age I probably will not do this again. It is a quaint charming place, and the staff is very good. Just does not meet all my needs

Friendly and courteous staff, great location in downtown Mendocino. Hotel is very old but quaint. Could use some upkeep but overall it’s clean and our room was open and spacious. Coastline just steps away from front of hotel and restaurants also close by.
