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.

While 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, upgraded Luxury Garden Rooms are much more spacious. These upgraded rooms were renovated back in 2006 and feature views of the lush greenery outside. Many also have pullout sofas, fireplaces and porches. Wi-Fi is complimentary in the guest rooms.

There are three restaurants to choose from on the property, 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

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".

I enjoyed the hotel because of its historical beauty, built in the 1800s, antiques and wonderful atmosphere and ambience. You could sit in the bar, at a table or by the fire and just relax and take it easy. Bring a book you may just want to sit and read. I loved the fact that it was on Main Street and all the stores, restaurants, cafés are within walking distance. We had the suite with a balcony with a million dollar view of the bay, the ocean, and the cliffs. Service was excellent and everybody went out of their way to please you and make sure you were satisfied.
