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 were not presented with a bottle of wine upon check-in. When I remembered the next day and inquired at the front desk, I was given a bottle and two wine glasses, no questions asked.

The musty smell in our room, armchairs were visibly worn, drapes were dusty at the top, cobwebs in the chandelier.

We arrived at garden suite it looked like a small cottage. 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. Then we went and have a lovely dinner in the hotel. Waitress was very nice, meal was excellent. Back to our room put the fire place on just perfect end of evening. Morning we had a nice breakfast again the waiter was so nice. Over all everything was perfect. Thank you we will go back
