Exceptional Bed & Breakfast

5 on October 01, 2014

We stayed one night at the Victorian Inn in Ferndale, CA, and found the experience outstanding. The rooms were quaint and lovely decorated in the Victorian style. The bath towels luxurious and the bed quite comfortable. The wait staff was gracious and top-notch. The breakfast menu offerings were very delicious and it wasn't easy to make a selection. We highly recommend the Inn and the town has numerous and eclectic shops and boutiques for your shopping pleasure.

Great stay in a beautiful inn and town

We stayed one night in this beautiful inn which I would definitely recommend.

The Heart of Charm

This lovely old building is one of the most architecturally interesting structures in a town full of historical buildings. The doors and ceiling heights made me feel like a child again (I'm 6' 7"). Friendly hosts and a good breakfast rounded out our pleasant stay.

Lovely place.

Really nice building and pleasant staff. Quite pricey but nice for a special time. They let us park our motorbikes in their pretty small back entrance to get them off the street.

A lovely little redwoods retreat.

I feel like my ratings here don't reflect the real quality of the Victorian Inn, because there's no category for "character" or "location." This little antique inn is tucked away in a great little town within access to many of the best redwoods and coastal hiking sites, with a fine park right there in town, and a drive to the coast that winds through remote forests and hills that's just spectacular. Great old rooms, and it may be the quietest place we've stayed; though there is some traffic noise beginning at around 7 am, it was marvelously silent the rest of the time. I'll definitely be coming back!

Must stay historic Inn

Wonderful and charming place to stay for one or more nights. It's a must to visit and to overnight. Great Service and very good food.

Would have loved to stay longer

Just an overnight stay in Maren's Suite but the room was lovely, the beds and pillows were comfy, and the staff was so friendly and accommodating. We had dinner in the VI restaurant and it was wonderful! The complimentary breakfast was simply outstanding as well. I'd like to try everything on the menu! Steep stairs but I counted them as good exercise in working off the meals.

Lovely Stay!

Ferndale was a small, very characteristic town that had a lot of home-town love to share. The Inn was especially nice. Had old-time charm however was kept up incredibely well. The rooms were very clean and up to date. The restaurant had a great variety of food and was very good. Nice bar selection as well. Thanks for a great stay! I would definitly recommend this place to others in the area. It's not too far off Rt.101 for those travelling down (or up) the coast looking for a nice place to spend the night.

a little stuffy

3.2 on August 22, 2014

The Victorian Inn was charming with wonderful original details to the building. Our room was clean and comfortable with the exception of being a little stuffy. We visited on a warm weekend so we needed some air circulation. They did provide a portable fan in the room, and the window did open. However, with the window and curtains open you lost a lot of privacy.

If the walls weren't paper thin...

It's cute and quaint. It is clean however I could hear the couple next door to me laughing and talking into the wee hours of the morning. I could hear every time they went to the bathroom, slamming the door each time. People staying there didn't seem to think anyone else was in the hotel. It's clear this is a problem for them as they have sound machine to "relax" you as you slumber. HA! For one I don't sleep to any sound, it's disturbing even if it's a babbling brook or rain forest sounds. Secondly you have to crank it up all the way and even then you could still hear the conversation next door. The couple was thrown off by the babbling brook they heard which spurred on another conversation that lasted quite a while. Again, cute, clean but not for sleeping unless you take ear plugs but be prepared to be jarred awake by the slamming doors. Oh and staff....what staff, some guy behind the endless counters of jewelry (which makes you feel as though you entered the wrong establishment) who says his bit as though he has said it a thousand times and that would be it for contact with "staff." The restaurant is okay, nothing to write home about however it is one of the only 3 or 4 places to eat there - the pizza joint was much better.
