Comments and Review on The Blackberry Inn

5 of 5 starsReviewed August 2015

Small motel, with probably a dozen rooms. All rooms are unique. We stayed in "sweet shop." Room was quite large. Very tasteful decorations. Refrig and micro. Nice front porch. Small view of the ocean. 3 minute ride to center of tourist town; we enjoyed Dick's bar. No breakfast, but they offered lots of fruit to have with the coffee supplied in your room. Internet somewhat intermittment. We highly recommend.

We found this whilst on line in the UK looking for a B&B in the Mendocino area. It was difficult to know exactly what we were in for but when we arrived it was a beautiful peaceful replica of an old Californian one street town. Each room is styled as a different building and we stayed in the Gazette, the newspaper printers. It was clean with plenty of room for our family of four. Many of the B&B's in the Mendocino area weren't too keen on having a six year old staying but this was perfect. It may not have a pool or a games room but my six year old loved it as it does have space, freedom (no busy roads surround it), friendly staff and humming birds. My wife and teenage daughter enjoyed relaxing in the sun in the gardens and a good wifi signal! We used this as a two night stop on the way north on a Californian road trip. I would recommend Mendocino as a stop over, it is a beautiful old town and the people incredibly friendly without being at all overbearing. Although the Blackberry Inn is outside the town of Mendocino with a car it is a convenient base for the area. Just make sure you check out the website to understand the delightful quirkiness of this motel as it won't suit all types of visit, but if it is a couple of peaceful nights in a unique setting to explore a beautiful area then you won't be disappointed.

Located just outside of Mendocino, at first the place seems hokey. Built like a little western town, each room has a theme. We were in the saloon. The furnishings were western but not in a clownish way. We had no problem checking in. The room was neat as a pin. You could see the ocean from our window. We had it all: snacks, Wi-Fi, big screen TV, frig, and privacy. One word: magical. And best of all: not that expensive for Mendocino. Cant' wait to come back.

You won't be disappointed if you stay here. Each rooms entrance is a theme--sheriff, barber, bank, etc. I loved the quaint feeling of all of the rooms. I stayed in the millinary room. It had a little walk out where we could sit and look at the ocean and just hang out. We loved every inch of the place! It's location is amazing--close to downtown Mendocino, Russian Gluch state park (amazing hike!), and Fort Bragg's downtown. 

The guy checking us in was just amazing too! He baked fresh cookies for all his check in guests and they were amazing! 

Don't miss out on this hotel experience. It'll be one of your best decisions ever! :)



“Always Good”

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

My husband and I have stayed here at least 3 separate times in the past few years. It is an older establishment, but well kept. It is always clean, and everything is always in working order. The staff is friendly and helpful. The prices are very reasonable, and they have rooms for all budgets. The decor is a bit eclectic, but charming...kinda like grandmas house, comfortable. The goodie basket is always a welcome addition for the evening or breakfast. Every room has a mini fridge, microwave, and small coffee pot. It isn't in town, but is very close, just a couple of minutes drive to town. Belles place is our favorite room, but this time we stayed in the School house which was still very accommodating. We will definitely consider this inn any time we visit the area.


“Anniversary Stay at Blackberry Inn”

My wife and I celebrated our 53rd anniversay at the beautiful Blackberry Inn. We were going to stay for four days but extended for another two because we were treated so well by staff members.

Our unit called the General Store was roomy, clean and decorated beautifuly. The Mendocino Coast was spectacular! We plan to stay again soon.


“A Great Value”

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

The room was large and extremely clean. Bed very comfortable. Baked goods in basket were a really nice touch and the check-in personnel were friendly and helpful with all our travel questions.The theme of the Old West was unique.



TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

We arrived and were upgraded from the Saloon to Margerite's Millinery. This was a large king room with a fireplace, patio and jacuzzi tub. The fireplace was all set up and when we lit it, the fire burned perfectly for a long while. There is a view of the ocean from the tub and from from the bedroom which has two comfy sitting chairs. The staff is friendly and helpful about what to do and see in the area. The location is a bit away from the town, but any easy enough drive or walk. We liked the Blackberry Inn and the Mendocino coast so much that we opted for an additional night. We would stay again.


“Little Jewel”

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

We stumbled on to Blackberry Inn and it was wonderful. The people at the desk were friendly and responsive. They gave us a cute little basket with yummy cookies and muffins and even a bottle of wine which we had for dinner. The room was cozy and clean. It had a hairdryer and other welcome bathroom items. It was the best buy of our visit up the coast of Calif and Oregon.

Pampering, with Spa Quality Amenities…

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

We feel so pampered each time we stay at The Blackberry Inn. The first thing noticed is the attention to detail. Fresh cut flowers, fluffy, bright white towels, spa quality soaps and lotions, and art adorning the walls. The beds are extremely comfortable and cozy. Watching the fire while we drift off to sleep with the calming sound of the ocean is priceless. In the morning, the yummy basket of goodies sitting on our table is quite welcomed, as is the coffee brewing in our pot.

The large, oval bathtub is very inviting after a day on the beach and walking through the redwood forests. We have our favorite room, however the wonderful managers, are always thrilled and proud to show all the other rooms when they are unoccupied.

The gardens and architecture of The Blackberry Inn are truly unique. Thankfully, there is an outdoor sitting area in the midst of it all for quiet reflection, a cup of coffee, a glass of wine, or some peaceful reading. We look forward to our next visit.


Beautiful Countryside and Ocean from our Window…

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

We were absolutely delighted with our stay at the Blackberry Inn. The room was large and well equipped. We looked out our large, back windows to see beautiful countryside and the ocean. The managers and owner were so welcoming and helpful; they were totally committed to making our stay the best it could be. The beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept on in a hotel or inn. The 'Old West' building facades were adorable and added to the experience and the homemade baked goods were heavenly. We highly recommend the Blackberry Inn.

Positive Reviews and Dog Friendly…

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

We booked the Blackberry Inn for one night to celebrate our 45th anniversary. Our choice was based on the very positive reviews - and also because they have rooms designated as dog friendly. As soon as we checked in, we really liked the place - and they had provided us with a bottle of wine to celebrate, as we had requested. So we immediately asked for a second night, which they gladly arranged - with a second bottle of wine! The room was immaculate; all the amenities were provided, including chocolate kisses on the pillows!


A Romantic Sanctuary…

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blackberry Inn is where my boyfriend and I took refuge before and after camping at the three day Sierra Nevada World Music Festival nearby. The Innkeeper is very warm and hospitable. It truly is a romantic sanctuary.


Ocean View from the Bathtub…

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

We came up to Mendocino for a romantic getaway. We cannot be more pleased with our stay at the Blackberry Inn. We stayed in the Sheriff’s room and it was fabulous. We had a beautiful ocean view from our bathtub, sliding doors and a great fire burning in the fireplace.

Very Cute and Good Value…

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Blackberry Inn is very cute and a good value. The complex is set up as an old Western town. When the fog lifted we even had a view of the ocean! My friend went for an early morning walk and saw wild turkeys and a small herd of deer.

Helpful and Willing Staff…

TripAdvisor traveler rating: 5 of 5 stars

We stayed in the honeymoon suite, Belle's Place. I was a little afraid that the theme would cross the line into tacky/cheesy, but was pleasantly surprised when we checked in. I really appreciated their willingness to help when we woke up the next day with a flat tire. Not only did they allow us to use their phone, but they let us back into our room after check out to wait for the tow truck. They made what could have been an awful morning into a minor inconvenience. The staff was great, the hotel is clean and quiet, the grounds are beautiful, and the price can't be beat in that area. I highly recommend staying here.
