This place is amazing!

This place is amazing! My husband and I went there for our Valentines Day weekend and had a blast. We “rented” the FREE bikes from the hotel and rode all over town, including through the state park, which was absolutely beautiful. We hot tubed (late at night because it’s open 24 hours), swam and ate,…

This is a great find! We’ll be back!

My significant other and I recently took advantage of the winter special to celebrate his special birthday. I couldn’t have chosen a more perfect place to spend two nights. We went on a recommendation and now we are raving about them. The package included dinners both nights and the food was absolutely wonderful–delicious, artfully presented…

We loved this place

My BF and I wanted to drive up and take a tour of Mendocino and Humboldt so we decided to stay one night here and the next night in Humboldt. We loved this place…we walked in the room and the fireplace was all ready for us, all we had to do was light a match….

A great value, and a very welcoming venue for a romantic getaway

Stanford Inn is a great value, and a very welcoming venue for a romantic getaway. Hosts and owners, Jeff and Joan Stanford, go out of their way to make you feel at home. Best of all, they welcome pets, and made our three dogs (see photo) very welcomed, including dog treats each night. The vegan/vegan…

Luxurious in an earthy, unpretentious way

We’ve stayed here a couple of times with our poochies. I’d describe it as luxurious in an earthy, unpretentious way. What I liked best: Dog friendly! Free bikes. Free organic veggie breakfast every morning (always ask for a scone with your breakfast – they are the best I’ve ever tasted). Llamas, horses, dogs and cats…

The most beautiful vacation we ever had

My husband and I stayed at Stanford 2 years ago… The most beautiful vacation we ever had. After Stanford tried couple of other places and decided if go to Mendocino, then only to Stanford. Very cozy rooms with wood burn fireplaces. The featherbed is very soft and comfortable. The first night we [thought we'd go]…

Stay at the Stanford Inn by the Sea at Mendocino

When crunchy granola types win big in a tech IPO, they stay at the Stanford Inn by the Sea at Mendocino. Stanford Inn is more a resort than a simple inn, and its expensive, but mostly worth every penny. There is a 4-star all vegan restaurant, a secluded spa, and warmed pool with sauna and…

Came for the Vegan/Wellness Package…eliminated all animal products from the menu

Let me tell you up front: I am biased when it comes to the Stanford Inn. My husband and I were married here over a year ago, and we just went back for our first anniversary. Simply put, the location is gorgeous. All rooms have ocean views, fireplaces and overlook the inn’s organic gardens. Better…
