Points positifs: Complete relaxation in a quiet and secluded spot. A perfect place to unwind for a weekend!
The inn was great. I would definitely recommend it to others that want a calm, quite stay. We used GPS to get us there but it was farther south than our GPS thought. We arrived late and the inn keepers had fixed an hors d'ouvre plate for us. This was really helpful since it is not in town close to any restaurants. This place is best for a single or couple. Loved it!
Points positifs: I was amazed at the quality of amenities that was included in the price of the room.
Points négatifs: I wish I had known that the hotel was located on the east side of the road instead on the ocean side.
Points positifs: The Mac House (MacCallum House) is a wonderful, romantic, luxurious place to stay. Breakfasts there are the best in Mendocino. The rooms were well appointed and the stuff helpful and friendly. I highly recommend the Mac House.
Points positifs: Overall a good experience. The place was clean and the lady doing our check in was a world of help for the area. Secluded and off the beaten track, but the entire town is within walking distance. The place where we ate was only a couple of blocks away and was one of the best fish and chips I've ever had.
Points négatifs: I find it a little distasteful to find thick paint on everything. You wouldn't paint your house this thick so why would you do it to a house from 1905?
Points positifs: Location and service from the check in staff.
Points négatifs: Toilet in my room was a little cramped for space.
Points positifs: Perfect location for a romantic getaway surrounded by magical ocean! Rooms were comfortable - rustic Mendocino style, which we love. The couple running the place was super sweet and prepared a fabulous communal breakfast every morning. I would definitely stay here again.
Points positifs: Breakfast was okay. Enjoyed the folk music with Holly. Location was good.
Points négatifs: The room was small and dirty. The sink was next to bed with completely separate taps for hot and cold water. There were no toiletries provided except a soap bar. The bed wasn't clean and we could easily spot grey hair and dust. Overall this was our worst hotel/B&B experience in the last 5 years.
Points positifs: Staff is excellent and close to the beach and downtown. Little worn out place but if you are ok with small wear n tear then good value for money.
Points négatifs: They messed my booking so got a sub-standard room for the first night. Second night was pleasant.
Points positifs: Easy to find, convenient for walking tour of town, beach access right across the street. Very nice, friendly staff, delicious breakfast. Very dog friendly. Room was clean, nicely decorated. Bed was very comfortable.
Points négatifs: Stairs up to the inn and street parking made unloading the car difficult. The front entry hall was very cluttered and didn't give a good first impression. I am not a fan of Victorian style and particularly unrefurbished tired & soiled-looking antiques, so didn't want to sit on any of the chairs in the "living room" area.
Points positifs: The staff were wonderful and responsive. The breakfast was absolutely delicious - the best I've ever had at an inn or B&B. The other patrons were a diverse group of interesting folks. I would definitely go back, especially if I got such a good deal again.
Points négatifs: the place was a bit shabby - kind of the classic Mendocino funk with the added twist of the bottom part of the door being missing, so that we had to stuff a rolled up towel under it to keep the critters out (it was an outdoor-entry room).
Points positifs: Location- walking distance to Mendocino. The staff was nice.
Points négatifs: The beds were bad and the wi-fi was terrible.
Points positifs: Location
Beautiful gardens - flowers
Sound of the ocean
Points négatifs: They putting on a new roof - construction started too early and included our deck and deck chairs. Deck chairs were taken away and at one point plywood sheets leaned against our sliding glass patio door. They told us about the construction when we checked in but said we would not be bothered. There is however a new roof for future guest.
We also wished the windows and the sliding glass doors had screens so we could open the windows and not worry about bugs or critters.
Points positifs: We had a wonderful stay at the hill house, if I could change one thing though it would be the odor of the room. It smelled as if a poopy diaper had been lost somewhere in the room. We looked everywhere and couldn't locate the source.
Points positifs: Beds could be more comfortable, and the remote didn't work in our room. The sliding door to our patio was very difficult to open but the space was large and the property was peaceful.
Points positifs: The proximity to town is wonderful. The gardens on the property are also lovely. My guess is that the property is just too much to maintain (the place is huge).
Points négatifs: The room was dark and smelled of mold. The wifi also did not work!!! I couldn't sleep a wink here. Done tv show was filmed here 20 years ago and the hill house has not updated since then. Not worth the money. For $20 more my companion and I went to a much nicer place with beach views and a fireplace the next night.
Points négatifs: Certaines ont une odeur confinée.
Points positifs: Bien situé - à quelques minutes à pied de Mendocino, qui est de toute beauté. Le personnel est très gentil.
Points négatifs: Les lits étaient mauvais, le wi-fi était un cauchemar.
Points positifs: The staff was outstanding--friendly, cheerful, helpful. Right in town and across the street from trails through oceanfront headlands. We spent lots of time hanging out in the Victorian lobby with beautiful views of the ocean.
Points négatifs: Cleaning was mediocre. Hall carpets needed vacuuming as did under the bed.
Points positifs: The historic lobby and restaurant.
spacious room 308
Points positifs: beach, garden, old atmosphere in side. Restaurant very good.
Points négatifs: Didn't know that we were staying in building behind the hotel, the building was not well marked (only on the door) and keys had wrong number on the tag. Confusing.
Points positifs: I loved the Victorian decor, staying there was like travelling back through time. The bar/lounge in the downstairs is the perfect place to hang out for a night cap although the bar closes at 9:30PM. There is a great balcony you can bring a glass of wine up to and chill out while enjoying the ocean view. Would definitely stay here again when we visit Mendecino.
Points positifs: The fireplace and casual, quiet lobby area are without compare. Ideal place to spend time with your loved one drinking wine and playing cards or whatever. The upstairs deck serves the same purpose. It's old. It's beautiful. The food and staff are wonderful.
Points négatifs: Bathroom down the hall ... less than ideal. Rooms are small.
Points positifs: Seemed quint when we first arrived
Points négatifs: Our room had no bathroom, the hotel had a restaurant downstairs that we could he very clearly until all the patrons left at midnight, then all we could hear was the bar two stores down. Impossible to sleep, the hallway also smelled like old fish.
Points positifs: Great views. Cozey rooms for the adventurous.
Points négatifs: Definitely felt the age of the hotel. Room descriptions are misleading.
Points positifs: The location
Points négatifs: The bed was not comfortable at all, and was noisy if you moved on it
Points positifs: La réception historique et le restaurant.
Spacieuse chambre 308
