Great location, charming rooms

3.2 on October 14, 2014

We stayed here for a single night, in a very pleasant room that opened onto a garden courtyard. Our only complaint about our experience was that the management disturbed us multiple times in the morning about the breakfast tray, and rushed us at checkout, coming by to get the keys. Other than that it was a nice and very comfortable room in a great location right in town.

Innkeeper Response
Ayla and I, Jim, (the owners) would like the reviewer to know how much we regret that our staff disturbed and rushed them. This is not how we wish our guests to be treated and it is not how we have trained our staff. However, the situation has given us pause and opportunity for re-education with a renewed focus on our customer service. Since reading this review the day it was posted, we have gone back and rewritten our training guidelines and sat down with each of our staff members to emphasize what Ayla and I expect of staff, that being: the happiness, comfort and well being of our guests from the moment they arrive to the moment they depart.

We were looking for last minute places to stay and found a gem. Breakfasts were delicious and hospitality was spot on! Would stay again if we ever find ourselves in Mendocino.

Good food and coffee


Love the Sea Gull Inn!!!

4.0 on July 30, 2014

I decided to take a last minute weekend trip to Mendocino for some R&R. I could not find a place to stay. So I found the last room at the SG B&B. Great price and location. Oh my gosh it is an awesome place to stay. The beach was across the street and restaurants and walking distance. I stayed for 2 nights and I loved it. The room was gorgeous and so clean. The bed was heavenly! I can't believe that breakfast was included and delivered to my room. I would definitely recommend the Sea Gull B&B. The Inn keepers are so nice and helpful. I give this place 4 stars!!! Thank you Jim and Ayla! MO


Sea Gull Inn

4.4 on July 26, 2014

Usually I'm not a fan of Bed and Breakfast Inns, that said, we were surprised and very happy to find that we were wrong in this instance. The Sea Gull Inn from start to finish is a class act. Our room was exquisitely decorated and super clean and the bed gave us the best sleep ever. Breakfast was delivered to our room and was perfect. The hostess is casual friendly but not pushy. I would say that if we are going to Mendocino again we will definitely stay at the Sea Gull Inn.


ENCHANTED TIME

5 on July 20, 2014

We had an enchanted time in the Shed. It felt so far away from ordinary life, and we thank Ayla and Jim for this experience.


July 4th Weekend

4.2 on July 07, 2014

Our second stay at the Seagull Inn. We have not stayed in the main house because we enjoy the separate cottages called the Shed and the Barn. Both are nice and extremely comfortable. Both have televisions with cable channels. The staff has always been welcoming with a satisfying breakfast delivered promptly to the room. The gardens are what I truly appreciate which are beautifully maintained. Having breakfast in the garden on one of several outdoor tables is truly enjoyable. The inn location is great, close to the Main Street businesses. Moody's coffee shop is a short walk for a morning latte. My only request would be a source for hot water for evening tea. Access to a microwave or water dispenser would be nice. We would highly recommend the Seagull Inn


A Different Experience

2.8 on July 05, 2014

For a short stay of one day, this hotel will do. Amenities are lacking. No tv in rooms, bathroom is very small, breakfast is adequate and service is good. Innkeeper us very friendly and helpful. Location is very accessible to all the quaint shops around town.
