Not the most modern rooms, but large enough and comfortable. Great place to stay while experiencing wine country. Glen Ellen is small, quiet and beautiful. Nice breakfast outside on the patio. Wish we had time to go to the Jack London Park.

This is a lovely, quiet little place. Everything is kept well and you can tell that they pay attention to detail and their guest's comfort. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is not a luxurious, modern room but everything works well and it is charming and cozy. You get a continental breakfast and the grounds are beautifully kept. It... More

This hotel is one of a handful of buildings that comprise the quiet corner of Glen Ellen, and it is the perfect spot to capture the true beauty of wine country. A staff member at a local winery told us Glen Ellen reflects what wine country used to be like, before the popularity and traffic.The location, grounds, and solitude are... More

My boyfriend and I came for 2 nights, and definitely enjoyed our stay. Rooms were spacious and clean. The hotel itself is charming, and has a pool and hot tub. There is also a gorgeous patio to sit and have breakfast. The staff were most helpful when it came to choosing wineries in the area. The bar next door always... More

A friend & I came to the Sonoma area for an overnight trip. We decided to stay in Glen Ellen outside the buzz of downtown Sonoma. The Glen Ellen Lodge is situated next to a quiet stream & has a wonderful peacefulness about it. We checked in around 5:00pm & shared a glass of wine out by the pool &... More

This lodge is charming and intimate. What I loved the most were the beautiful flowers and trees that surround it. The room was clean and comfortable enough but as others have mentioned, a little dated and definitely not luxurious. It did have the modern hotel in-room conveniences like a coffee maker, plenty of wonderful towels (6), plenty of hot water,... More

We stayed here last weekend with another couple and really enjoyed ourselves. It's an old motel that has been upgraded (and the management is still working room by room to make it better). The room we had was nice and big and had a comfy bon ed. There was wonderful smelling wisteria hanging off the railing of the second story... More

We just got back from a 2 day stay at the Jack London Lodge. This is a very relaxing place. The flowers all around are just beautiful and a light breakfast is served in the courtyard with all the flowers and trees. The pool area is very nice and the pool was very enjoyable. The place is kept very well... More

My husband and I spent three days at the Jack London Lodge while visiting Sonoma Wine country. It was a great location to go both north toward Santa Rosa and south toward Sonoma to visit the many wonderful vineyards and tasting rooms in the area. It is just off of Hwy. 12, the main north and south route in Sonoma... More

Other reviews talk about the Jack London Lodge character and proximity to this and that. To me it was a clean and affordable place to stay. That's all I ask for. Would we return? Yes we will and look forward to exploring the area again.
