The location and (occasional) smell of a ranch takes nothing away from some of the best red meat found on planet Earth. Every few months a good friend and I fly up from San Diego in his private plane, land at the airstrip at Harris Ranch, have dinner and (sometimes) spend the night. My buddy needs the flying hours and... More

While traveling on I5 we stayed at Harris Ranch. The price of the room was $189.00 but they gave us a $40.00 credit for dinner. The rooms are excellent and the restaurant is first class. If you like meat this is the place to stay and eat. After dinner we went to the bar so I could watch a basketball... More

It's a nice getaway for the weekend, the grounds are impeccable. The hotel is nice, a little on the older side, but well maintained. If you leave a balcony door open, don't be surprised by flying insects. It depends on the time of year. They are harmless. It's a short walk to Eat, Drink and be Happy Time. Gorge yourself... More

Whenever we travel between Southern California and Oregon I make sure to schedule a stop at Harris Ranch. We have stayed closer to the restaurant, within the Inn. This time we ended up on the farthest corner looking at the parking lot. Still, clean rooms, Keurig drink makers. Huge pool and nice sized hot tub. We will keep making it... More

I am currently staying for the first time at the Harris Ranch Inn. For many years I've stopped here en route to Los Angeles or San Francisco. What I glimpsed of the colonial architecture and gracious setting and the sparkling pool always tempted me to try out this hotel. Tonight, traveling alone on business, I did elect to stay here,...

We stay at this Inn every year when we travel to Sonoma County. The rooms are spacious and clean. The rooms except for bedding is dated but this gives it that old fashion charm. Staff are friendly and very guest focused. Upon check in they offer guest home made cookies and a bag of their almonds. Quiet surroundings with beautiful... More

Just headed out for Big Bear a week ago from the San Francisco Bay Area. This place is the perfect stop about halfway between and is such a nice stop! The restaurant handles many people with quality food and speedy service, so don't be put off by a "sit-down" restaurant in lieu of fast food. Their meat is fabulous and... More

Always wondered what this place was like; Now I know. Passedc it dozens of x's off the I-5. this time I stayed. Looked on their website first. Got confused at the reservation page, no clear explanations. And seemed kind of pricy: $159 basic room/rate. At the checkin desk I saw a placard touting a AAA 4-star award/rating. I thought: "oh...

terrific food and service. pricey, but only acceptable option between Bakersfield and Sacrament. Has a Filet and a Wet Spinach Salad. Was not enamored with the salad, but the steak was cooked perfectly. Offered wines by the glass, which again were pricey but had a good selection. Ate in the Steak house because the bar was full.

I expected so much more from Harris Ranch Inn. Brought my family for 2 night stay, assumed housekeeping would at least make beds, bring TOWELS, but nothing!! So the only good thing about this place was the cookies upon check-in. I'm from Coalinga originally, grew up there, and just expected so much more from Harris Ranch Inn
