ZAGAT Survey 2010
2013: “Be sure to stop at this gorgeous hotel with hearty bistro eats in the oak and Victoriana Lobby Lounge, locally sourced Californian cuisine and in the quiet romantic dining room—Old World charm throughout. It will take you back in time with enjoyable service and not-too-expensive prices to boot.“
2011: “Excellent.”
2010: “Sets the scene for the local ‘in crowd’,
and well worth the price.“

Upcoming Events

  • May 16 at 7:30 pm: Mendocino Stories and Music Series presents “Oster, Daley & Adrianna Trio” The Oster, Daley & Adrianna Trio will be featured in Mendocino Stories & Music Series on Friday, May 16. Influenced by traditional bluegrass and the more contemporary styles, the trio is a blend of close harmonies and fancy pickin' with a uniquely Northern California/Mendocino County sound. Music starts at 7:30PM at the Mendocino Hotel. The musical flow of these talented multi-instrumentalists covers a wide-ranging repertoire of tastefully realized traditional tunes, creative contemporary covers, and inspired original songwriting. Equally sharing lead vocal duties, the father/ daughter harmony of Kenny and Adrianna reflects the classic traditional family harmonies of the past. The addition of Bob's voice to this family sound offers a sweetly satisfying blend. The Oster, Daley and Adrianna Trio captures the blue-collar sound of the vineyard and winery lifestyle unique to Northern California. All ages are welcome! Doors open at 6:30 PM for bistro menu and libations. Reserved table seating $15, $10 general admission. Call Pattie at 937-1732 or check online at www.mendocinostories.com for further information.
