Favorite place in Mendocino

5 on July 01, 2017

Quaint, charming and delightful place to stay. The grounds and garden are beautiful. The breakfast tray presentation and food were a treat to see and eat. Each room is unique.....we stayed in the "Shed" and it was just the right size for both of us. The location is perfect, within walking distance of the center of town and the ocean. It had everything we wanted in a B & B. Will be staying there again.


Romatic Weekend

Such a great place to unwind and within walking distance of downtown and the coast line. We will make this a regular place to go.


Perfect Getaway

Lovely stay among the quiet garden. Perfect location for access to trails on Mendocino Headlands or strolling through town. The hosts are ready to serve your every need.


Beautiful setting, friendly people, excellent breakfast.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the gardens were lovely. The shed room was very cute but tiny, and if the weather had not been so perfect, this might have been a problem. The friendliness and the food were a big plus, and we loved eating breakfast in the garden. It's nice to be located right in town. A good choice if you are looking for something both affordable and delightful.


I would recommend you to stay there..

We stayed beginning of April at Sea Gull Inn Geranium room with my mom. We were very impressed with cozy room and welcoming service. Hotel is very near to restaurants and shops, but on same time has enough privacy. The room was tastefully decorated and had very comfortable beds. I would stay there again and I would recommend you to stay there..

I loved everything about this place: its location, its beautiful unruly garden, its kind and generous proprietors, and their staff. It's friendly and private at the same time. The breakfast was superb, and personally served with smiles.


FABULOUS

4.0 on February 17, 2017

One word: FABULOUS! I absolutely loved this place. I stayed just one night as a get-away trip and it was such a great experience. It was extremely quiet at night and I had very restful sleep. The room was cozy and pristine. In the morning, owner Jim delivered a gourmet breakfast right to my room. It was delicious and so neatly presented. All of the staff that I interacted with (Griselda and Julie and owners Ayla and Jim) were so courteous and hospitable. I am enthralled by my short stay at Sea Gull Inn. I wish I had spent more time there to enjoy the experience. Overall, the Sea Gull Inn gets an A++++ from me!!

Great location and friendly staff. It would have been good to have tea/coffee making facilities available. Towels were okay, bed linen was lovely. Breakfast was fine but nothing special. Overall it met expectations.
