Blackberry Inn
Ranked #8 of 25 Mendocino B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 26 January 2009

We had our wedding weekend in Mendocino at the MacCallum House (see other review). This place gave additional options to our guests that couldn't afford the higher priced inns in Mendowcino town. It's only a short 1 min drive into town - so it was no issues for our guests staying there. Also, they were all very happy with the accommodations - only said positive things about their room.

I also stayed here for my visits prior to my wedding, and days before my wedding. Infact, we had our entire family stay the day before our wedding event. The rooms are quaint and clean - with loads of character. Each having it's own name and theme - wonderful for kids.

Wonderful views from each room of the ocean. Although a bit far away, still very beautiful and lush.

I would highly recommend staying here if you are on a budget - or if you just want a different place to stay for a few days to get a different flavor of Mendocino.

Friendly staff, excellent service, and reasonable priced. Highly recommend it!

We came up to Mendocino for a romantic getaway. We cannot be more pleased with our stay at the Blackberry Inn. We stayed in the Sherrif's room and it was fabulous. We had a great ocean view from our bathtub, sliding doors and great fire burning. The room and grounds were immaculate. The hotel was a an old western town theme which was very quaint. The staff was friendly and it was quiet which was just what we were looking for.
In the am we had a basket of homemade muffins and fruit that went great with the coffee and watching the ocean. It set the tone for our day.
We will return here in the Spring and stay in this exact room.

Thank you to the staff for a wonderful weekend!!!

We were very happy with our experience with this hotel. After enduring rainy weather and a sub par exoerience of the town, curling up in front of the fireplace in our little cottage made everything better. Also, when I forgot my jacket in our room after we had checked out and left. the staff was very helpful and mailed it out to me the same day. Thanks!

Ok. I admit... I was turned off just a tiny bit as we drove up to see some very "Disneyland Mainstreet" sorts of repro housing... but the price was good and they take dogs. It ended up being a little gem and we intend to return.

Wonderful getaway for us -- and for our little dog. They explained the rules on check in. (No dogs left in the rooms or in your car... fair enough.) Lots of grounds to take nice walks (with or without the little dog.) They left some doggie treats in the room. (only 2 rooms take pets... "Gen Merch" (1 bed & fireplace- ocean view from the comfy chairs) or "Land Office" (2 beds, no fireplace but you can see the ocean from the beds.)

We felt very welcome and our every request was met with a smile. (more wood... check-out time...) They left a rose and a small bottle of local wine in the room. Very clean. Good heater for night. Clean windows that open for day. spacious room. Quiet, quiet, quiet.

One thing we appreciated was the way they used good local products (such as the shade-grown locally roasted coffee) in the room. The continental breakfast situation is different from any we've encountered, with the basket in the room when you arrive (homemade cookies, breakfast breads, various fruit) but it's just different-- not bad. One little bit of protein would have made it perfect. (cheese??)

It is across the highway from the town of Mendocino, but just a 3 minute drive to get there. It's a sliver of a distant view of the ocean, but still just gorgeous... especially at sunset.

We loved the Blackberry Inn and will return.

We stayed in the honeymoon suite, Belle's Place. I was a little afraid that the theme would cross the line into tacky/cheesy but was pleasantly surprised when we checked in. Our room was spacious, very clean, and had great amenities. The staff had been extremely helpful when I made my reservations and also helped me find a local restaurant for dinner. By the time we checked in, they had already gone out of their way to help me. I really appreciated their willingness to help when we woke up the next day with a flat tire. Cell reception is spotty at best in that area and we needed to use the front desk phone. Not only did they allow us to use their phone, but they let us back in our room after check out to wait for the tow truck. They made what could have been an awful morning into a minor inconvenience. The staff was great, the hotel is clean and quiet, the grounds are beautiful, and the price can't be beat in that area. I highly recommend staying here.

Situated a mile out of the town of Mendocino, so a short drive (not very walkable as on highway 1). Room was lovely and large with two double beds. Bathroom not so great but ok. Breakfast is just fruit and a small muffin./cookie but snack kept us going til brunch in mendo.

Our family (2 adults and 2 young children) traveled up the Northern California coast and wanted to visit Mendocino. A lot of the hotels and bed and breakfasts in Mendocino are not friendly to families with young children, or are very expensive, with high charges for rollaway beds and/or small rooms. We saw the Blackberry Inn advertised in the AAA book, then checked their website. Although it does not provide a full breakfast like many of the B&Bs or hotels in the area, the room price was reasonable for the area and it gave us the opportunity to check out some restaurants in Mendocino for breakfast..There also was a small basket of baked goods and fruit in the room, which was replenished each day.

We stayed in a large room with a King bed. The hotel staff was very courteous and helpful. The rollaway beds were only $5 each for the entire stay. The room was very clean. Surrounding the inn were grassy areas that our kids liked to run around in.

We highly recommend this inn and would stay there again.
