The small cottage we stay in is comfortable and likely as accessible as they have available. It has a partial ocean view from its lovely back porch – the main house has a beautiful view & rocking chairs set out, as well as a (steep) path down to the beach. Nice hot tub, excellent breakfast (my spouse is gluten free...

First of all, the owners couldn't be nicer. They are personable and go the extra mile to make sure you enjoy your stay both there and in Mendocino. They provide an exceptional breakfast. We had the Sea Breeze room and the view from the deck was lovely. The inn is the only one with a clear view of the water,...

Eric, Elaine, and Tovi (sp?), were such great hosts. I must say the pictures on their site don't reflect how much better it looks in person! The first thing I noticed that made it special, they had a great acoustic guitar in the lobby for guest to play, never seen that before, what a great touch. We rented both rooms...

My husband and I stayed here for a night while traveling for our honeymoon. The entire experience was fantastic. The staff is incredibly warm and friendly and the owners are lovely. The rooms are exactly as pictured and the private beach entrance is breath taking. Breakfast was amazing and we enjoyed talking to the owner while he served us. They...

If you visit Mendocino and stay with Eric and Elaine at the Algeria Inn you probably won't want to leave. The atmosphere of the place is relaxing and laid back, the breakfasts are heavenly and there is easy access to the beach. There is free wifi and a hot tub on one of the patios if you feel like a...

Alegria is the agent for the very isolated sea side 'Dolphin' cottage outside of town. To really 'get away' in a laid back place like Mendocino, you go here. The ocean pounds just outside the front door and when a good sea is running the blow hole in the adjacent cliffs goes off like a cannon. At a good low...

We've stayed at Alegria in Mendocino several times a year for a decade. The innkeepers, Elaine and Eric are warm, kind, accommodating and even will mail a hat left behind. The rooms and cottages are rustic and comfortable. You can hear the surf from each of them and the inn is in the village. Park your car and throw away...

Great rooms ( tree house room and raku house) and the warm hospitality of the inn keepers Elaine and Eric made for a wonderful getaway. We are vegan and the hosts were kind enough to cook us a special vegan breakfast every morning. The rooms were cosy and comfortable. The tree house was especially different, with its wood cabin feel...

The room we got was a bit rougher than expected but it had a wood stove and comfy bed. Adequate but no luxury for sure. Owners and staff were excellent, pleasant, inviting and welcoming. Breakfast was delicious. Nice view of the coast. I'd recommend this inn for sure.

We were here 30 years ago for our honeymoon and we were so thrilled to see all the gorgeous upgrades. The Zircon was so romantically sweet. We snuck into the jacuzzi at night and then to the kitchen to grab a few snacks and a movie before we headed back to our cottage in our plush robes they provide. It...
