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.

As others have mentioned, this is really a 70s style motel. Had a Groupon deal so the price was right - probably wouldn't stay here again however. Bathrooms in need of serious updating. Pillows extremely hard. The location is very convenient to local wineries and near some great restaurants. (Avantine is nearby and has great food and service). The lodge... More

Didn't really want to write this review - would like to keep it a secret. Went there with a Groupon offer, not expecting much. What we found was an attractive, clean room awaiting us. Extremely comfortable bed with luxurious towels were very appreciated. Inn staff was very welcoming and helpful in suggesting places to eat and wineries to visit. We... More

We had two rooms, (12, 23). Check-in was a breeze, and the lady who checked us in was super nice. The beds were comfy, the chairs were handy, there was plenty of counter-space by the sink, and the market across the street was great. The Jack London Saloon is welcoming and unpretentious. Our TV (12) was snowy, but we didn't... More

As noted, this "hotel" is not much more than a 70's motel, but that's okay. The rooms are smallish, standard motel design. But it had two comfy easy chairs, which is unusual and the King bed was also good quality - no sore backs in the morning. The chain smoking receptionist could have been a bit more welcoming but not... More

Individual rooms in a motel-style design. Portable radiators make room warm in winter. Be sure to ask for more towels- they only give 2 per room. No breakfast provided off-season, but great little natural market across the street with espresso, coffee and killer chocolate muffins. Good base for exploring Sonoma, Kenwood and Glen Ellen wineries.

We spent a very nice November weekend in the lodge. The room was very spacious, the king bed comfortable, the sink area had a lot of space for utensils, and the room was clean. The creek side sitting area looked nice, even though we did not really use it. There are a few more real advantages to that place. First,... More

Quiet, comfortable, clean, cozy and without a doubt the best value in this upscale region of trendy boutique hotels and big super spas. Located in a quiet area close to good restaurants, wineries, and a neat little grocery and deli.

As other mentioned, this is not the fancy inn/lodge but nice clean accommodations for a great price with the addition of super clean pool and spa. We had a room on second floor with king bed and the room was pretty big. The bed was excellent. Room has small refrig and ceiling fan. Furniture was simplistic. We enjoyed our stay... More

What a little gem tucked away in wine country, within walking distance of some fabulous restaurants and nightlife at a refreshingly slower pace. The staff was curteous and the property was clean and well-maintained. The only thing that could be improved upon would be to update the bathroom. Other than that it was the perfect place to stay and at... More
