I had lunch with some girlfriends at this restaurant the other day. Because this was for lunch and mid week we had to order at the bar however our food was delivered to us at our table. My salad was very good and prepared exactly as requested. My friends also liked their choices. I was disappointed to find that the... More

Good value and the rooms have been renovated. WiFi did not work well. Nice location for wine tasting. The hotel provided coupons for winery tasting rooms. The staff also had suggestions for restaurants.

We didn't know exactly what to expect but I must say we were amazingly surprised. You definitely need a car as the motel is located in a back country area, although almost at walking distance from Benziger Family Estate. The room was clean, a nice breakfast is included and served outside in the backyard patio of the neighbour pub. There... More

Clean room, great deal (nice bottle of wine in our room and free cocktail at the saloon with Groupon). Nicely maintained grounds, great old bar. Walked to dinner at Glen Ellen Inn and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for our all too brief escape. Missed breakfast, but Sonoma town is so close. We will be back.

We stayed here for our first anniversary and were so excited to be back in the area, as well as our first time to stay in wine country vs SFO. Upon check in we were told the rules, not welcomed. When we asked questions the lady was annoyed and abrupt. The property reeked of weed. When we went to the... More

The location cannot be beat. The price is reasonable for the area. It is essentially a nicer motel. The rooms are nice, but the beds leave a lot to be desired. The bed itself is fine, but the 50% cotton/50% polyester sheets are very uncomfortable. The fiberfill pillows were way too fluffy, and made our necks wrench. The "Good" about... More

We love any and everything about the Jack London Lodge, and recommend it to everyone we know as a wonderful place to stop for lunch while wine tasting or for a comfortable weekend in the heart of wine country. My husband and I were married there in September 2015 and could not have had a better experience. Elaine is the... More

Beautiful location. Convenient to all wineries and tours. Nice continental breakfast. My new husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and loved it. Very quiet, tucked away location. Very economical for the area. Would definitely recommend for anyone.

Two levels of quaint rooms, reasonably priced, very short walk to the best grocery store in the state and a wonderful night's sleep after a hectic travel day! All reasons to enjoy now and return someday. Continental breakfast served outside overlooking a creek. Good selection and friendly. Top location to stay for local wineries. Enjoy!
