We did the Romantic Getaway package they advertise with an extra night - they were nice enough to make sure we were in one room for all three nights, but they forgot the champagne & strawberries that was supposed to be in our room waiting for us. When we called about it they said oh yeah you got that package....

We stayed overnight at the Inn on our way up the coastline. We found this place to be charmingly historic and unique. The staff was very helpful and it was a breath of fresh air from the chain hotel stays we have experienced. Loved the historic feel and it is also close to town. Breakfast was good, standard continental food...

Mendocino definitely is a break from "chain" anything as we have a very strict historical review board that allows us to keep our village pristine. The guest's experience here in our village is peaceful and the relaxation that they get is so worth the drive. Our staff is always glad to hear that their friendly and courteous service is appreciated...

My husband and I stayed at the Hill House Inn for 2 days. Our room had a balcony with a view of the ocean. It was very pleasant and peaceful. The room was spacious and comfortable. I enjoyed the "retro" feel of the place. The breakfast was basic, but good enough to get you going. The breakfast room had a...

We made an impromptu visit to Mendocino midweek and got a good rate at the Hill Haven Inn. The decor was okay, a little worn, but clean. There was a coffee maker, but no other amenities. If you wanted a refrigerator they wanted to charge you another $20. If you lost your key it was another $50. Staff was nice,...

Decided to take Travelzoo up on a two-for-one weekday offer. The room was quaint and a visual experience. The carpet, wallpaper, couch, chairs and bedspread were all different patterns. The room was clean and quiet with a large porch facing the Pacific to the north. The commode was an experience. It was a pneumatic type in which the bowl water...

First, a couple caveats: 1. We traveled to Mendocino last week and stayed at the Inn on a Wednesday and Thursday evening and before any holiday traffic, and 2. We stayed at Hill House Inn with a Living Social voucher that reduced the cost of the stay considerably. Both my husband and I normally have difficulty sleeping the first night...

Stayed here for one night on a long road trip with our 3 children. On arrival I was greeted by 3 ladies at reception who reacted to me as if I was disturbing them and were not welcoming at all. Our keys didn´t work as they had muddled them up and given us the wrong ones. The rooms were fine...

My sister and I went to Mendocino for the weekend to celebrate our birthdays. We paid for a room with a view of the ocean, only to arrive and find the windows so filthy that you couldn't see much of the ocean at all. Our room was next to the stairway, so you could hear people walking up and down...

The staff at the Hill House is concerned when our guests are not happy with their stay. This summer we have experienced a lot of fog and drizzle and window maintenance has been increased to a higher level with new longer handled window washing tools. We hope that this guest will revisit us in the future and enjoy our hospitality...
