A lovely motel-like inn with stylish decor and extremely comfortable bed. The grounds are beautifully kept (a guest was taking photos of the roses at the entrance as we arrived). Very handy to several nearby vineyards. Stayed only one night and wished we had time to see the State Park. Definitely recommend.

Spent two nights in the Warm Springs Cottage and then two nights in the hotel after our family weekend had ended. The cottage was fantastic (just need non decaf coffee). Six of us stayed there very comfortably and the kitchen is well equipped. Beds were comfortable and a great layout. The Lodge for it price point is very nice with... More

This place is "motel- like" so adjust your thoughts. But, it's at the edge of the Sonoma Mtns at the foot of Jack London State Park, a lovely break from the wine trail some morning! Kim, at the front desk, is welcoming, and the location is perfect. The Glen Ellen Grocery is across the street, which has a fab. deli... More

Stayed here one night on a little birthday getaway with my husband via an Amazon Local coupon for a mid-week stay. Great price for the king bed room that was upstairs. I thought this place was very quaint, extremely peaceful, and relaxing. The woman at the front desk was very nice and accommodating. Also, an excellent location! The Glen Ellen... More

I read another review on Hotels.com that this lodge should modernize. I found it to be very quaint, extremely peaceful and relaxing. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The pool and hot tub area were very clean and the landscaping beautiful. The only drawback which I don't really consider as such is no elevator if you have a mobility... More

... an okay place to crash for one night only. The price for one night's stay does not match what you get, but the location is key. This lodge is really a motel. The restaurant on site is a pub. This is not a place we will return to.

Received a one night stay as a gift on Groupon. Checked in Monday which only took a few minutes. The grounds are clean and tucked in some trees next to a creek. The room was large and beautifully decorated. Nice vanity, good size bathroom, flat screen tv, fridge, coffee maker and blow dryer. The vanity even had cotton balls and... More

Very reasonable, clean motel near fine Glen Ellen Market and some good restaurants. Close to Sonoma without the wine country prices and near Jack London State Park. Friendly and thoughtful manager made for a great check-in experience. We were very happy with our corner upstairs room. The bed is comfortable, as others have said. The outside light does shine in...

Jack London Lodge is going to become a yearly tradition. The hotel is located just next to Jack London National Park which offers some amazing history, information and views. The hotel is also located right next to Benziger Winery, a winery focused on biodynamics and my new favorite. The hotel itself is so cozy and quaint and the attached bar... More

This is an old motel with very bare essentials. There really wasn't anything impressive about it other than the fact it's located in a great area. It needs an update, but did the job. I wouldn't stay there again. The staff was nice.
