A delightful night in Mendocino

4.4 on August 19, 2017

We spent a very good night in the charming Sea Gull Inn. Friendly and helpful hosts, a very pretty room, comfortable bed, gorgeous garde, and outstanding oat/berry scone, juice fruit, and coffee delivered to our room exactly at the time we requested. The only thing missing from the room was a tv, but we considered that a bonus. ;)


Cozy and welcoming

4.2 on August 14, 2017

We loved staying here with our 2 young girls. The delivery of breakfast to our room every morning was a unique, wonderful touch that made things so much easier for us with our kids. (And they loved the hot chocolate and huge muffins). Ideally located within walking distance of restaurants, and a charming, quiet place to stay. Thank you!


Wonderful weekend!

My wife and I stayed at the Seagull Inn for a weekend in June 2017. Loved the place and will return. Great location and very romantic. The in-room breakfast is a great touch and delicious!


Quick stay at the Inn

5 on August 10, 2017

My wife and I needed to make a quick trip to Fort Bragg and thought it might be nice to stay in Mendocino. We were lucky enough on short notice to see that the Sea Gull Inn had a room available. We liked the reviews and the fact it was right in town. It was everything the previous reviews had said...very quaint, clean, quiet and right close to town, restaurants, shops, etc. It was easy to find and the room was excellent. We very much liked the old, historic nature of the building and the relaxed setting. Great short visit...just need to stay longer than 1 night next time!


Breakfast at the Sea Gull

4.2 on August 09, 2017

The Sea Gull is a very nice and quaint B&B, my husband and I had a very nice time, our only complaint is in regards of breakfast, even though it was plenty and really delicious, it only included sweet things, we wish to have had some savory items.


Anniversary

5 on August 09, 2017

This was our 6th visit here and not our last. Champagne was brought along with our breakfast to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary. Always love our time here and staying at Sea Gull is the reason, walking distance to everything. Highly recommend.


Another anniversary

4.8 on July 29, 2017

This was our 6th visit to Seagull and we were not disappointed. Our breakfast on our first morning included champagne which we made mimosas out of our juice. Food was delicious and Jim and Ayla were very cordial as usual. Would highly recommend this place (and I have many times). Walking distance from everything we want to see and do.


Amazing stay

4.6 on July 27, 2017

The Sea Gull Inn is a beautiful place to stay with gardens surrounding it and many places to sit outside to eat or just relax. It's in a great location to walk to the headlands, shops, and food. The breakfast is the perfect size and delicious. The staff are also very helpful when giving recommendations. Would definitely stay here again.


Charming old home, great location, friendly staff

4.2 on July 15, 2017

This b&b is in the middle of the cute village of Mendocino. It's an old house with quirks like uneven floors and tiny showers, but it's very clean and charming and the owners and staff are beyond friendly and cheery. Breakfast is served in your room and consists of a giant delicious muffin, fresh fruit, juice and a hot beverage. Location and charm are excellent. Room is sweet and good size. Shower with minimal flow is only low point.
