Great Place to Relax

4.8 on May 30, 2015

The service was excellent. The staff was attentive and gracious. The room was spacious. It is an excellent place from which to enjoy that part of California.

Great B&B

5 on May 07, 2015

Only concern is the long flight of stairs you need to climb to reach the rooms. No elevator in an historic building. That said, our stay was great! Owner on site and always making sure we had everything we needed. Staff great, too.

Unique, historical hotel and town

4.0 on May 01, 2015

The historical Victorian Inn is nicely restored without changing the features to be expected from an inn of that era. For instance the wallpaper looks a little tired and the rooms are necessarily small. We were in a suite with a "sitting area:" two comfortable chairs at one end of the room with a table and lamp between and two queen beds, only one of which we used. The very comfortable bed next to the window was set too close to the windowed wall, and a heater along the floorboard made it difficult to make a nocturnal visit to the bathroom without tripping. However, the room did not smell musty, a real danger for such restorations. The receptionist was very helpful in fairly describing the various restaurant choices in town and made sure we were given a reservation when we decided to eat in the inn. Both the dinner and the provided breakfast were outstanding. The fish and chips selection featured succulent fish cut by hand in the kitchen and covered with a light non-greasy coating. One of the best we have tasted. The breakfast offered a variety of choices. The hash brown potatoes were not dry and tasteless, as so often the case, but were moist and savory. The eggs were cooked perfectly. Be sure to leave yourself time to walk the town for the period homes, storefronts and landscaping. Around the corner from the inn and set into the hill is a wonderful terraced cemetery.

Truly lovely B&B

We spent 3 nights at the Victorian Inn and loved it. Great room (enos room), great breakfast, friendly staff and gracious on site owner. Dinners were very good, and the on site tavern was fun! One night there was live entertainment. The only possible drawback is there is no elevator in this historic building, and there are about 26 steps up and down from all rooms. We managed, but if you have health issues it is something to consider.

wonderful getaway to the coastal redwoods area

4.8 on April 23, 2015

This hotel was amazing from the beginning!! Staff knew who we were and where we were from making it feel comfortable to be there. Rooms were beautiful with the high ceilings, outstanding wood molding. Also down the street 20 minutes or less your right at the beach. Would visit again. .

A Writer's Dream

Our stay was even better than expected! The room was ingenious mix of classic Victorian and modern conveniences. King bed gave the best sleep we ever had. My wife writes romantic novels and was motivated by the Inn and the town. We are returning in August to stay at the Inn for 2 nights! Highly recommended!!

Awesome weekend at the Victorian Parlor Room

5 on January 26, 2015

We stayed just one night at the beautiful Victorian Parlor room. My favorite color is red and this room was perfect for this romantic weekend get way with my wife. Checking in was quick and the front desk person was very friendly and helpful making the start of this experience already wonderful. The room in the picture looks a little bigger than it actually is but that did not bother us at all. The bed, king size, is amazing and we loved the velvet couch by the window where we enjoyed the handmade chocolate truffles the Inn offers as part of a package. If you are looking to stay in the room to watch TV, the TV size is smaller than I would have wanted to be but was enough for me to watch the football game that night. Breakfast was really good and it is at the VI Restaurant and that in itself is already a very good experience even if you don't stay at the Inn. And to finish our stay with a gold medal, the owner came to our table during breakfast to say hello and knew where we were from before we even told him, leaving us with the feeling that we were old acquaintances.

Lovely Hotel

We stayed at the Victorian Inn the night of the tractor parade in downtown Ferndale. It was a wonderful evening full of the most beautiful lighted tractors. Such imaginations. It was so nice to be able to just step outside the hotel to watch the parade. Our room was comfy and cozy. The restaurant had a great menu and good food. The breakfast the next morning was delicious. I would recommend staying at this hotel.

Great stay
