We stayed at the Blue Heron Inn in december 2005 and it was no problem to get the "Sunset Room" for just one night, even from Friday to Saturday. The Sunset Room is really nice, and you have two windows from which you can see the cliff and the ocean. 115US$ in off-season for a room with a shared bathroom may seem much but I guess that's Mendocino, but I'm sure compared to other B&Bs in that little city, you will stay on the cheaper side in the Blue Heron Inn. The bathroom of the Sunset Room is shared only with one other room, so it wasn't a problem to use the bathroom anytime you wanted. The Lonely Planet says the rooms would be spartan. That's true in the sense that they aren't as over furnished (Victorian Style) as many other B&Bs in Mendo, but as posted before, lovers of the european style will really like it here, and the linen are fantastic. The only thing is that there is a restaurant below the guest rooms and you will here the sounds of people talking and eating till 10pm in the evening. So if you like to go to bed early, that may be a problem. Otherwise I think that the Blue Heron Inn is a great choice and, for Mendocino, surely is a best buy! I would certainly come back!
