  • Blanketed by bountiful Victorian gardens and towering cypress trees
  • The inn and its surroundings were often showcased in the TV series “Murder, She Wrote”

Get away to coastal Mendocino, a remote escape located a little over 150 miles north of San Francisco. A major artist community, downtown Mendocino is filled with charming shops and funky galleries.

Hill House Inn is a quaint Victorian-style property best known for its location in the village. The country atmosphere is accented by rooms featuring brass beds and lace curtains. Rooms are fairly large and have a bit of an older feel with floral bedding and carpets -- some boast ocean views.

The restaurant at the inn has a wide selection of Mendocino, Sonoma and Napa wines. Over 40 movies were filmed at this iconic 19th century property, along with the well-known television series "Murder She Wrote."

Enjoyed Most: I had a great night sleep
Other Comments: We did not get the continental breakfast that was advertised with the deal and the hotel is all but closed down. They offered coffee in the lobby, but it was so strong you couldn't drink it

Enjoyed Most: The room was very large, the bed was quite comfortable, it was very quiet, and the grounds were filled with flowers.
Other Comments: The wifi was quite pathetic, almost unusable in our room. The tub was very slippery and there was no mat or handrail.

Enjoyed Most: Location was great. We got an upgrade to deluxe king (with patio and a large room) and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was very helpful and smiling - just what you want in a hotel stay.
Other Comments: The only problem was the pillows were a little musty. The smell woke me in the middle of the night.
