We were probably the second wave of guests since reopening, so staff trying to work it out. Took a while to get into room as cleaning time has doubled, so don't plan for early or on-time check in. Room super clean and smelled great. Excellent location. No breakfast, coffee in common area. etc. but fridge, microwave, and individual coffee service in room, so plan accordingly. Assuming this is common at all lodging at the moment. Beds very comfortable. The only negative thing was that the refrigerator froze our boiled eggs.and avocado :-(. (Not a life crisis..haha) Staff seemed quite tense at check-in but more relaxed at checkout and very accommodating with request to split billing. Certainly recommend staying here and being understanding and patient about the rules Mendocino County has placed on lodging trying to re-open. Wear your masks!!!!

I loved this hotel. I had a perfect view of the ocean. The room was clean and the staff was very friendly. Everything was great! I just looking forward to a better breakfast. But I would definitely recommend this hotel. It’s right next to the popular glass, and not too far away from the restaurants.
