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

Going North on I-5, we needed a stop & found it at Harris Ranch. Had made the reservations well in advance & good thing too as it turned out to be Valentines Day and the restaurants were busy but as hotel guests, we did get seated when we wanted. For guests, expect blue jeans & cowboy shirts. We ordered a... More

Upon check in the staff offered complimentary nuts and cookies. The room was spacious and clean. We had a balcony that overlooked the Olympic size pool. Great view especially at night! The room theme was rustic ranch! We only stayed one night, but I will return!

John Harris' dream along the I-5 have dimmed. My companion and I visited the Inn and it's restaurant on our way through the Central Valley the night before Valentine's Day. Reservations were made for both our room and our dinner. I booked the "Country Classic" package which includes a "Triple Crown King Room" with a balcony and a $40 dinner... More
