...if you like B&Bs, I can't imagine finding one better than this. It was my understanding that one of the owners worked for a luxury hotel or hotel company. It shows, everything about this place is right. It's charming without being cutesy, elegant without attitude and the staff was great.
Every detail was perfect: The linens, decor, bathing products, and furnishings were all top quality yet subtle in there presentation.
Nan who manages the Inn is delightful, smart, funny and attentive. She treats the beautifully restored house as her home and treats her guests like close friends. The breakfast was spectacular and one of the best I've ever had. All cooked and served by Nan.
I was fortunate to book last minute and got a canceled reservation. Probably the simplest and smallest room but everything was perfect. I suspect this place is constantly booked and every other guest I met was loving it. I hope to go back. Other Mendocino hotels and Inns could learn a few things from the Packard house. If you read my other reviews, you won't see many like this one. This inn, management and staff are rare.
