A lovely adventure!

4.8 on August 30, 2015

We were greeted by the very pleasant and helpful proprietor and shown to our lovely room. Everything was clean, the bed was very comfortable, and the room was quiet. After a lovely night's sleep, we enjoyed our breakfast and fresh coffee in-room. It is an excellent value for location and comfort.

Great stay in Mendocino B&B

4.0 on August 16, 2015

Great room with very little noise from upstairs guests. Comfortable bed, small bath with shower; had everything one needs for a hotel/B&B. Outstanding service from staff, who were able to get me an earlier breakfast due to an early checkout. I really appreciated that! Amazing breakfast: OJ, hot chocolate, fresh fruit and a large muffin with cream cheese.


Sea Gull in Mendocino

The Sea Gull Inn couldn't be better situated. Park your car and forget it. Walk everywhere, views are spectacular. If you are looking for the typical Parlor type B&B where you gather for breakfast with others to share experiences the Sea Gull doesn't have that but your breakfast is served directly to your room.


Peaceful

4.8 on August 13, 2015

The bed was very comfortable, and the room was quiet. Each morning a delicious breakfast was brought to our door. The muffins were absolutely the best I've had, but the coffee was week. We stayed in Lookout one so we had a porch to sit and read on. It would have been nice to have a small blanket for the cool nights and mornings. Staff was excellent.


Wonderful Anniversary Visit

4.8 on August 06, 2015

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Sea Gull Inn for our first wedding anniversary. We stayed in the shad, and were very pleased with the room. We loved that it was a bit separate from the house to give a little privacy. We also loved the gardens, and took full advantage of them - enjoying a glass of wine out there at night was amazing! Breakfast was also delicious; we also enjoyed the garden during breakfast. It was awesome to have a home cooked pastry and fruit every morning - it was a great start to the day!


A Fine Stay

3.0 on July 29, 2015

We enjoyed our stay in our little room in the shed. We were told it would have an "earthy" smell and I wonder if I'd have noticed if that suggestion hadn't been planted in my brain! The breakfast was simple but tasty, brought to our room. I actually would have preferred being able to have it delivered earlier than was allowed so we could head out and investigate the area, but we dealt fine with it. The people running the B&B were friendly when we encountered them, but of course it's not the sort of place where you sit around in a room together and chat. It's more of a private sort of stay place.


Very Pleasant, Close to Everything

4.6 on July 25, 2015

We stated two nights and felt right at home. Comfortable room and excellent breakfasts, which we enjoyed on the porch. Laura, Jim and Ayla were exceptionally accommodating and helpful. Walking distance to anything you'd want to visit in the area. It was built some time ago and as has the feel of an old-world New England Inn. We'll stay there again next time we visit.


Best B&B in Mendocino

4.2 on May 05, 2015

This was our 6th visit to this B&B and 2nd stay in this room, love this B&B and the hosts are most welcoming which is part of why we return almost yearly. The Hosmers


A perfect stay!
