Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


The second you enter the Mendocino Hotel's mahogany-filled lobby -- complete with a crackling fireplace, stained glass windows and a number of antiques -- you are transported to a different era. The building was constructed in 1878 and dates back to a time when Mendocino was a happening port for the logging trade. The hotel is right by the ocean, a half-mile from State Route 1 and a mile from Mendocino Headlands State Park and Mendocino Bay.

The European rooms (this room type is not offered in our deal) are quite small and have an in-room vanity and sink and shared restrooms across the hall. The garden suites are much more spacious. Many of these rooms also have a foldout sofa, fireplace and porch. These rooms were renovated back in 2006 and feature views of the lush greenery outside. Wi-Fi is complimentary in the bedrooms.

There are three restaurants on property to choose from, whether you feel like something more casual (Garden Room or Lobby Bar) or a finer dining experience (Mendocino Hotel Restaurant). The hotel is right in town too, so there are plenty of dining options and shops within walking distance.

From the press:
  • "It's easy to see why artists were -- and still are -- attracted to this idyllic community, a cluster of New England-style captains' homes and stores on headlands overlooking the ocean" -- Frommer's

We went inside beautiful large suite with nice fire place king size bed, we put our stuff then went out for a walk, drove to the edge of the cliff sat and watch whale migrating we saw a family mom, dad, and a baby whale just beautiful.

Enjoyed Most: Location
Other Comments: Staff was rude, price I paid through travelzoo was much more than expedia. Rooms were horribly dated, I understand vintage, but you can buy new matresses...I had a spring poking me in the back.
