On a month long drive-about on the West Coast, we rolled into Mendocino after dark without any advance planning. As a small coastal town with no street lights I had to resort to a google map search on my phone to locate a hotel and that's how I found this place. Mendocino has 24 B&B's and 1 or 2 hotels, therefore Mendocino Hotel's rating as the #1 hotel is achieved with little or no competition in its category. As a seasoned traveler, I appreciated the old vintage look and feel of the place from reception to the antique furnishings of the room. The room was smallish -- which is authentic to the period the hotel was built. I was grateful to get a room at night without a reservation and the woman at the front desk was welcoming. The hotel is well placed on the town's main street and near to a beautiful ocean cliff walk. If only the hotel room rates were lower I would find it a better value and be more inclined to give it a more enthusiastic review. The next morning we had breakfast in the adjoining restaurant -- my feeling was the menu was rather uninspired and our waitress was a bit rough around the edges. Improvement in the restaurant would serve to better complement the hotel.
