Hotel at a Glance: Mendocino Hotel & Garden Suites

A few things have changed since the Mendocino Hotel & Garden Suites opened for business in 1878. For example, the surrounding community has transformed from logging town to artists’ colony. But there’s at least one thing that remains unchanged: the sunsets around here. The hotel sits on a bluff overlooking the ocean and is within walking distance of Mendocino Headlands State Park, which has served as a vantage point for 50,000 vacation-worthy sunsets since the hotel welcomed its first guests.

  • Enjoy complimentary coffee or tea all day at the lobby bar.
  • Spend the night in luxurious rooms; the luxury garden room features an Italian marble bathroom and down comforter. Some rooms have small porches. Victorian rooms boast antique furnishings, lace curtains, and blackout drapes.
  • Put your feet up and stay in for indoor amenities like cable TV, high-speed WiFi, and a selection of newspapers.
  • Go hiking on the coastal cliffs of Mendocino Headlands State Park, just a mile away.

Mendocino, California: New England Look-Alike on Scenic Pacific Headlands

In the mid-19th century, Mendocino rose to prominence as a redwood-logging hub along California’s northern coast, attracting a number of lumberjacks from New England. These West Coast pioneers brought East Coast architecture with them, building their new homes in the Victorian and saltbox styles. The town has such a New England look that it stood in for a Maine fishing village during the filming of the TV series Murder, She Wrote. For a peek at some of these picturesque old buildings, head to the Ford House, which serves as the official Visitor Information Center of Mendocino Village, and the Kelley House Museum, which preserves 19th-century photographs and furniture in a house built in 1861.

In the 1950s, when it was in danger of becoming a ghost town, Mendocino was thrust back into the spotlight thanks to painter Bill Zacha’s Mendocino Art Center. Still open today, the art center has taken advantage of its scenic setting along the town’s coastline, which has been the inspiration for several watercolor and oil canvases. A quick stroll south will bring you to one such scenic spot, Mendocino Headlands State Park, where waves crash along carving arches, grottoes, and stony bluffs.

The bed was a double. VERY small. Room was in terrible need of a face lift and was stifling hot. Terrible pillows. Bathroom was nice at least and staff were very welcoming. And when I looked on the website I saw I could have booked the same room there directly for slightly less. Also, dining room and bar are no longer open.

This place isn’t bad but it isn’t great either. The main appeal is the in house restaurant and it’s currently closed. The ‘free’ WiFi only reaches one half of the building, the pillows are flat, and the phone doesn’t work. There’s no niceties like a baby fridge or a ceiling fan and most of the rooms don’t have the ocean view they advertise. Unless you are really into ‘historic,’ skip it.
