Why We Love It

  • The hotel is right by the ocean and only a half-mile from State Route 1
  • It is located in peaceful downtown Mendocino
  • There are three restaurants on property to choose from -- two casual and one fine dining option

Mendocino is "the premier destination on California's Northern Coast" -- Frommer's

"How quiet the room was. I know we had 'neighbors', but I couldn't hear them! The gardens are just spectacular, too. The food was very good, three places to eat - the garden room, the bistro, and the main dining room. And the hotel is located in the middle of town so we could walk everywhere!"

Overview

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

PERFECT ESCAPE FROM THE HEAT

The location and the lobby of the Hotel are nice, but it didn't make up for the dingy rooms.
Other Comments
The room was very poorly maintained, even in the luxury garden suites. Holes in the drapes, cobwebs everywhere in the room, old dingy bathrooms.

Location of property within the town of Mendocino.

The hotel and garden suites are in desperate need of refurbishing. The cleaning staff performs the best they can with fixtures and furnishings that are in shabby condition. Think twice before booking this bargain! Travelzoo staff should take a look at what you are offering, trust is valuable and now I must do further research prior to booking a "Travelzoo Deal".
