4/10 Fair

For the price we paid we received NOTHING to be worth the money.Fridge was empty. Fire place was broken down. No maids coming to clean the room,which in the case of Covid, its understandable. However, the hotel could always compensate other things for the room to make the clients happy. VERY DISAPPOINTING.

8/10 Very Good

Overall it’s a lovely place. It seems to be tailored for older people without families. It would be perfect to come back by myself without my family. Or for a couple to come that is health-conscious. Our son enjoyed seeing the horses, donkeys, llamas. And we enjoyed being able to have our dog on the property. There are a few strange things that we experienced. For example, they seemed strict about having reservations for the restaurant but when we ate there hardly anyone was there. Also on Saturday night there was atalented pianist playing serious Avant garde, moody music. It seems like the place could be lightened up a little as I saw a few families there with kids. Also the hostess on Saturday evening at the Ravens restaurant was rude and unwelcoming. She looked at us and asked if we had a reservation and we said that we did and we apologized for being five minutes late and she looked at her book and said yes, you are late. It just seems like a family owned inn would be more warm and welcoming than that. There was no smile or her saying welcome. Also, the vegan restaurant menu was delicious. I would ask the owners to consider that there are a lot of people with autoimmune diseases today- autoimmune diagnoses are at an all-time high now. This means that many people now have food allergies for which gluten, beans, and soy are unhealthy. Overall, the property is lovely. We enjoyed the gardens and the farm aspect. And the other patrons were quiet and kind.

The rooms looked as great as the pictures on the website. Spacious, clean, and the decor was fabulous. We loved the plant-based restaurant. You must have the sea palm & root vegetable strudel. Dinner and breakfast were great -- and great views. I appreciate the attention to the safety of hotel guests - masking on the property and vaccination required to eat in the restaurant. I felt so safe throughout my stay.

Wonderful Stay at Stanford Inn
It was a very nice place to stay in the area, probably top 1 or 2. The rooms very were very nice and warm as it was cold there. I have stayed at many other places in Mendocino and this was by far better than any others I have stayed.
