Hill House Inn
Hilltop Inn in Mendocino
Well located in Mendocino, but the accommodation has a chintzy feel, albeit that this may appeal to others. The room is clean and comfortable, but quite expensive, although this reflects pricing in Mendocino, generally.We just about managed to get wifi connectivity in our room, but the signal strength was weak (but wifi can be accessed in the main house) The continental breakfast was fairly basic.

Looks and location only!
The hotel has looks and location only. The curb appeal is very nice. But that's where the appeal ends. Since the hotel did not serve breakfast, we stop at one of the local bakeries and picked up some muffins. Woke the next morning, anxious to eat our goodies, only to find them covered in ants and roaches. When I reported it to the front desk, the attendant's attitude was nonchalant, as if it was an everyday occurrence, no apology, no offer to pay for the cost of the muffins, nothing.

Perfect location, great stay
Stayed for 2 days at their deluxe oceanfront view room . Large room, bed a little hard but it didnt bother us. Location perfect ,5-10 mins walk to town. No restaurant in the hotel but there are many restaurants to choose from when you are in town. They give you a 15% coupon to eat at Mendocino Hotel restaurant. Enjoyed their food a lot. We ate there 3 times.

Definitely a good stay.
Beautiful spacious Victorian style room. Perfect location to explore Mendocino and Fort Bragg. Food/coffee stops near-by were all cool as well.
