Stanford Inn & Raven Restaurant in Mendocino, CA
My wife and I stayed at the Stanford Inn over the Christmas holiday 2013. They had a Christmas dinner with a fixed menu at a high price of $65 per person. The service at the restaurant Raven was bad as we had hard time getting our waitress's attention to come over to our table to talk about the problems with our food. They didn’t come over to see how our food was after serving us. The starter of Red and green ravioli stuffed with squash, served with a beurre blac sauce which sounded good, but lacking much flavor. The entrée we had was the Encrusted Tofu, which was very dry without much flavor.
Our room Forest Executive had a broken chair next to our bed and very large air gaps from the porch door, which made our room cold at night. We had a very hard time booking the Inn during Christmas for two nights because they said the have a three night minimum, but on their website you can book the inn for two nights for the Christmas holiday, but you have to wait till later in the year to do so. They seem to make such a big deal about booking three nights only even though for two years we’ve been able to book two nights during the Christmas holiday.
