Mendocino Headlands State Park
Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens
Location Beautiful gardens - flowers Sound of the ocean They putting on a new roof - construction started too early and included our deck and deck chairs. Deck chairs were taken away and at one point plywood sheets leaned against our sliding glass patio door. They told us about the construction when we checked in but said we would not be bothered. There is however a new roof for future guest. We also wished the windows and the sliding glass doors had screens so we could open the windows and not worry about bugs or critters.
The proximity to town is wonderful. The gardens on the property are also lovely. My guess is that the property is just too much to maintain (the place is huge). The room was dark and smelled of mold. The wifi also did not work!!! I couldn't sleep a wink here. Done tv show was filmed here 20 years ago and the hill house has not updated since then. Not worth the money. For $20 more my companion and I went to a much nicer place with beach views and a fireplace the next night.
The room was beautiful. Very modern, clean, well laid out and comfortable. Staff was welcoming, helpful and efficient. Wait staff for both meals were friendly, well-informed. Food was very good and reasonably priced. The grounds were not as well kept up. There used to be a lovely "green garden" open to the public showing their home grown produce. I miss the unplugged feeling--no phone, etc. Everything was so luxurious but the towels in the bathroom were unraveling. When I I told the front desk, and showed them the picture, their reaction was underwhelming.
Views, room size, bed comfort, location. Such a beautiful place but requires upkeep. And that is not happening. Understaffed so no housekeeping. Had to call 3 times to get towels and never got our room cleaned. No maintenance staff so bathroom doors off the runner, freezer door fell off in my hands and broken lightbulb with glass shards left in lamp.
I liked that it was set back a bit and not right on the highway. It was quiet and the beach access suburb. Enjoyed a wonderful sunset!
Easy to find. Easy beach Access. It was run down and dumpy. First room we were in looked freshly painted, but musty. No phone, no cell service and wifi didn't work. Completely issolated in uncharted territory was a bit frightening. Second room we were in, the bathroom was so tiny I was claustrophobic. You couldn't even dry off without stepping into main room. Wifi somewhat worked but still no cell service and the room phone wouldn't call out. There was also ants everywhere. Bed had a pee pad under the sheets and was gross. The Thai food was disappointing as well. I asked for it to be cooked a little spicy and it was bland and mushy. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone. Would have rather gotten all my teeth removed then stay ever again
