We enjoyed our two-night stay at the Raku House which is part of the larger Alegria Oceanfront Inn across the street. We booked practically at the last minute and felt lucky to have found affordable accommodation over a Friday night in Mendocino. Although we were somewhat skeptical since it was still available when not much else was, there was no need to have worried. Situated in a well-kept garden, the Raku House is a charming craftsman bungalow that has been renovated into four guestrooms. Our room was comfortable, super clean and somewhat quirky (huge bathroom with clawfoot tub/shower shared with microwave and kitchen things.) The innkeepers are delightful people who personally toured us around the entire property: one of the few properties in Mendocino that has direct access to a large white sand beach. Breakfast, delivered to our door, was warm homemade muffins and scones with juice and coffee and there is a nice outdoor sitting area should you choose it. (The breakfast was tasty, but we felt that it could have easily been improved by including some California fruit.) Everything in Mendocino is an easy walk away and we never had to use our car. We'd stay here again but next time we’d book ahead for the room with the front porch.
