Yes, the Stanford Inn is expensive, but you get your money's worth. One of the best doggie friendly hotels, your dogs get sweet potato chips every night and fresh dog sheets. Water and food bowls are in the room. Doggie walker bags and trash cans are spread throughout their beautiful property which includes llamas, donkeys and ducks. The Ravens vegan restaurant allows dogs in the outer dining area so when you make a reservation, mention that you pups will be dining with you. Yeah, the dogs are well taken care of, but what about me? You get cookies in your room every night, access to one of the best vegan restaurants around (open breakfast/lunch/dinner), a comfortable/peaceful room and the hotel is near outdoor activities. Right next to the hotel is a place to rent bikes or an outrigger canoe. Highly recommend the outrigger canoe and paddle up the river. We saw 2 sets of river otters, seals and blue heron all within an hour of paddling. Massage therapists are hit-and-miss - Ask the front desk for their recommendation on who to get. The hot tub is great! Nice and hot with pounding jets! One note about the restaurant, Ravens - I'm not vegan and I still loved the food. Excellently prepared, not a bad meal, ever.
Stanford Inn is my #1 choice to stay in Mendocino. Well worth it!
