Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

We were in town for a wedding so weren't going to be doing much at the hotel except getting ready and sleeping. The staff was courteous and accommodated an early check-in, which was great for our schedule. Not the newest or fanciest in the neighborhood but what we needed for the occasion (and cheaper than many of the other choices).

I was originally excited to stay at the Hill House Inn. With all the history I was thinking it would be better than it was. Room was moderate. Nothing special. Needs updating. The gardens are beautiful. I don't understand why they are not serving a full breakfast here. The facilities are all there--full kitchen, ample rooms and seating, even a...

Large rooms furnished with older furniture. Reminded me of my grandma's family home in a good way. Very clean. Large bathroom, all amenities (soap, shampoo,etc) a short walk to town but there are no street lights so not for everyone. Gal coed me in was a bit surly but not really an issue.

Ok..so for some people the old world feel to the place might not be appreciated. However if you are looking for a warm, relaxing place to stay this is the place. We spent two nights, thoroughly enjoyed the experienced. The bathroom while small was functional, the room clean and the bed comfortable. We had a garden view room and found...

We got special deal on the place, other wise I never would have thought to stay here. Nice room, no refrigerator, We had a gas fireplace, which kept us plenty warm. Got a 10% off pass to a great breakfast at Mackellum House in town. I would recommend. Oh Yes, they are "pet friendly"

Arrived at 7:30pm and greeted with note on door to go into town to get key at other hotel which took awhile to find due to very poor signage and pouring rain. Unfriendly staff while getting key. Room had sagging King bed (oddly comfortable however), old beat up furniture and poop stains on toilet seat. No number to call and...

My husband and I have made the greatest memories here. From our first getaway together and getting married here. Although it has been 22 years we still love stopping and/or staying here when we visit Mendocino. Staff is always nice. Great location to town and short walk to the beach.

The grounds and the building are nice enough. The Inn is a short way out of town. Sidewalks or a path are not provided in order to safely walk into town. Not the the Inns responsibility to provide them, but it would be nice to know prior to making a reservation. Walking the narrow road into town is hazardous. Restaurant...

First let me apologize about the walk into town. As you stated there are no sidewalks and it is the town's responsibility. The town wants to keep everything like it was all those years ago, natural and unspoiled. I will bring this to the attention of the appropriate department and let them know it is something that should be mentioned...

We travel to Mendocino for business and pleasure. The price was just right. This location at the top of hill is a place we have wanted to stay and booked it this last trip! We will return. The rooms are large, the staff was wonderful and I highly recommend it.
