Excellent location and we were able to walk all over the town. We stayed in the Driftwood Room. Very Cozy and the Fireplace kept us toasty warm. The Breakfast was very Good as well.

Enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving and "Black Friday" that was anything but black... sunny, crisp weather, ocean and shops just steps away and a sweet little place to call home for two days. Lovely hosts and cozy, comfy quarters!

Wonderful and Quaint!

On a trip down the coast I spent the night in the "Garden Shed" room. It was just as charming as described and shown on the Inn's website. Really wish I wasn't just passing through as I could easily have spent several more nights at the Seagull Inn. Breakfast was really nice as well. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!

This is a charming and affordable B&B in the heart of Mendocino. My wife and I stayed for two nights, last week and 24 yrs. before that. The owners are sweet and helpful, there is a beautiful garden and cat, and it couldn't be in a better spot.


LOVE the Sea Gull Inn!!

Upon arrival, Jim the owner was there to greet us, he was super nice, checked us in, gave us a map of the area & told us good places to eat :) .......then showed us to our room, which was the "shed".......looked exactly like the pictures online!!.....so CUTE!!! the bed was super comfortable and the bathroom was roomy......loved the fact that there was always a little shelf or a little table to set your necessities on :) They served a continental breakfast each morning and it was yummy!!!.....consisted of coffee, juice, warm homemade muffins, fresh fruit, & yogurt....all delicious!! They also provided umbrellas in the front office......for those of you who forgot to travel with an umbrella (which we did!!).... The Sea Gull Inn was perfect for us and we would definitely stay there again!!!


The Shed

We stayed in the Shed for 2 very enjoyable nites. Comfortable. "Secret Garden" behind the Shed and the resident cat added to our enjoyment.

Booked earlier this year for our first trip to Mendocino. We were both really happy with our room, The Shed. Staying at The Sea Gull made our visit memorable. Friendly and very helpful hosts, excellent service and brilliant location. We will not hesitate to visit again!
