We have been coming here for years and recently stayed for 4 nights for our honeymoon. Let's start with the good: -The views. I could walk the property all day. Stunning views and surroundings and the beach below was very peaceful. -The food. We ate in the bar area and Joe, the bartender and server, was a great guy and fun to chat with. Being able to take a glass of wine and stroll the property at sunset was great. -The staff. Very friendly and accommodating. I get the sense the ownership is the issue as there is an obvious lack of needed investment to make this a 5-star place. -The spa. We had an outstanding couples massage after a 7 mile hike in nearby Russian Gulch state park. -Nearby attractions. Van Damme state park, also near by, has great hikes as well. Fort Bragg with glass beach and north coast brewery is a short trip. A little further up the coast drop in and visit Sally at the Pacific Star Winery, that property is gorgeous. Lots of nice restaurants in Albion, Little River, Mendocino, etc. Nearby lighthouses are a fun visit as is the overall wine country along highway 128. Now the not so good: -Many cabins and units on the property are in severe disrepair. Some of them have open doors and upon a closer look, you can see why: mold. I am sure the years of roof leaks are the culprit. It is like being in a neighborhood where every few houses, one is a junker. Shows lack of maintenance and investment by the owners. -Overall grounds and unit maintenance. When we arrived, we were in half of the Same Time, Next Year unit. For what should be a showcase unit for the property, we were shocked to see cigarette butts on the deck, in the decorative end table on the deck (It's like a table/vase that has holes in the sides), a dental floss stick on the grass right below the deck as well as a pile of cigarette butts. In fact, there were cigarette butts around the whole property. The same one was on the staircase going up to the bar every day we were there. None of this was picked up during our 5 days. Inside our room, the view was breathtaking. The problem was the windows were dirty. They looked like they hadn't been cleaned in weeks. We almost bought Windex and paper towels and did them ourselves. One window could not close unless someone was outside pushing it closed so the person inside could latch it. No screens on any of the windows as well. The TV was mounted on an adjacent wall so watching it from the bed was almost impossible. It simply needs a mount that can swing out from the wall. Many people have tried and failed to swing it out, as shown by the photo where the TV corner dug into the wall from people trying. We didn't care much as TV was the last thing we needed, but we have always enjoyed watching Same Time, Next Year on loop. But, that is gone now too! Used to be on channel 1, but the new cable system doesn't have it. You have to go get a DVD player and the DVD from the office. Funny enough, there is nowhere to safely put the DVD player. I balanced it on top of the TV and it was precarious. The rugs and walls were also stained, torn and scuffed. And, the door was missing the threshold so there was a 1-inch gap between the bottom of the door and the floor. Made for cold nights and bug visits. For the price, I expected better conditions. Housekeeping was spotty too. When we did have them in, dirty towels we left on the floor or when taken, not replaced. Same with wine glasses, dirty ones taken, replacements not left. Looky-loos. This unit is on the edge of the bluffs over the ocean and has a wall of windows. Other guests seem to have no issue walking by and peering in at any time of the AM or PM. There should be signs near all units on the ocean to keep people from disturbing the guests. It's like being in a fish bowl when they do. Overall: We truly love this place and are disappointed in the overall condition. We hope to go back but by the looks of it, I am not sure how much longer it will be in business. If you lower your expectations a bit, I think you will enjoy the place. The views, food and nearby attractions are excellent.

Nice cute room. They have everything you need. Coffee pot, frig, microwave.. Heated floors in the bathroom. Huge shower with two shower heads. A porch overlooking the ocean with nice chairs and a table to sit at and enjoy. TV was a nice size. Wifi was very good. No problems at all. WE ate in the dining room in the evening. Nikkii was our waitress and she did such an awesome job. She was not the regular waitress from what we understand but we watched her give her undivided attention to every table. Even though she was very busy. She went out of her way to attend to us. The food was awesome. The chef is doing a nice job. We also had breakfast in the dining room and it was good too!

Heritage House Resort & Spa We really enjoyed our stay at Heritage House! Mendocino is really laid back and is a great place to unwind and chill out from your daily grind. The coast is so beautiful and we really enjoyed sitting on our porch with a glass of wine listening to the ocean waves. Ahhhhhh, so relaxing. Now about this property: We reserved an “ocean view” room and received just that upon check in. Room 34 looked like it had recently been updated and was very nice. Unfortunately, it was also right below the windows of the restaurant and bar area. We asked for a change and they were very accommodating and we got moved to room 55, which is out in the “Deerfield Meadow” area. It was the perfect room for us! And although this room wasn’t quite as updated as the first room, the view is stunning and well worth having only one sink instead of two in the bathroom, and it had a few "dings" here and there. This room also didn’t have A/C, which was not a problem but I suppose it could be in the summer. There are some peculiarities about this property that I’d like to point out. There are some buildings that look like they belong in a ghost town. Not sure what is going on with those as we never saw anyone working on them, they are clearly not occupied and look derelict. Not a pretty sight for an upscale priced property. Lighting: If you are walking back from the restaurant to your room in the Deerfield Meadows area, bring a flash light because there is a strip of road there that is pitch black at night! When checking in we were informed that the only menu choices available that night were salad and pizza. The next morning, waffles were not available. Spa: We set up full body couples massages. The treatment room windows did not have window coverings that worked so the rooms were bright and it was weird undressing near an open window. When we arrived, one of the masseuses informed us that she would only do a back massage. We should have spoken up right then and there because one of us got less than we paid for! I mentioned that upon checking out and they were aware this masseuse does this. I said we were disappointed but they didn’t offer any discounts or offsets. Service: Very mixed. Like I said, they were very accommodating in moving our room. One day housekeeping visited our room but forgot to leave wash cloths. I called the front desk and she said they would be delivered but they never were and I had to go get them. With a four day stay, I had to go get more coffee and shampoo. Restaurant: We ate there a few times and the food was very good. Like I said, overall we had a very nice time there but be aware of the few peculiarities.

The location is amazing! The hotel itself has seen better days. Some of the units literally fall apart. Our room had a great views but 2 lamps didn’t work, the sliding door was broken and the glass door had mold traces. We had no WiFi connection in our room and no cell service either.
