The resort is not on the water side but a great walk from resort to the water. We saw deer everyday and we walked everyday. Great walk and the view is outstanding. However, dinner and breakfast at the resort is outstanding, just outstanding. The owners are making steady progress in upgrading the facilities. The rooms are comfortable and now have wifi. Little cleaning in the public areas would be great, the cobwebs in the windows or clean the windows but you are not there much. Mendocino is great and we have stayed in other BBs in the area and this is our favorite.
