My husband and I have been meaning to return to the Cottages on River Road and we finally made it this past Sunday with our son, young niece and nephew. We had great memories of our first stay here a few years ago so we decided that another visit was in order. This time we checked into a River Cottage... More

We recently stayed here over 4th July weekend. We have a 6 month old so we opted to stay in one of the two bedroom cottages with a mini-kitchenette. The hotel was perfect for us. First, the price is right...you got a lot more than you would get another place. Second, it is super casual...nothing fancy, the cottages are basically... More

Arrived in Guerneville and we were nicely greeted at the front desk. Cottages are basically double wide trailers. Units were clean and well stocked. A very nice greeting for our dog, Sandy. The grounds are beautiful. We appreciated the Continental breakfast. Our disappointment was in the surrounding residential area and the city of Guerneville. This town is not as quaint... More

Having visited Guerneville many times from Colorado, I have never stayed outside of main business area. I decided to try someplace new and was pleasantly surpised how welcomed I felt as soon as I walked in the front door. All the staff were wonderful and very accomodating. There was a nice mix of couples, families and pets. I had a... More

We stayed here this past weekend for one night with our children ages 9 and 12. It's not the usual type place we stay at, which are mostly bigger hotels. We enjoyed the quaintness and how welcome we felt. It's the type of atmosphere you would just never get at any type of larger hotel (which there are none in... More

What a fabulous little oasis tucked away in Guerneville, Ca. We stayed 2 nights in a one bedroom cottage and it delivered exactly what was promised. The garden setting in the middle of the cottages is lovely, and the continental breakfast every morning was a welcome treat. Evenings by the fire with S'mores was big fun and the adult company...

Terrific place to stay in the area. We were two women and were very comfortable in our very cute cottage with each of us having our own bedroom. It was decorated as we would have decorated it. Very comfortable sitting room with sofa, coffee table and tv. Really good coffee in the reception area in the morning with items like... More

We have stayed at the Cottages sister property in Napa where we had 2 wonderful experiences. This time we decided to give Guerneville and the cottages a try. We had so much fun at this hotel. My wife and I enjoyed massages which were out of this world good, followed by some pool time and capped our evenings off with... More

On Wednesday May 7th we checked into this motel for our 4th wedding anniversary. We were only in the room for about 25 minutes. With most of the time bringing in our luggage. I was on my way to the lobby to get the WiFi code when I stepped down the steps of our room and turned a corner. I... More

rrcottages, Owner at Cottages on River Road, responded to this review

The goal at our hotel is that every guest who walks out our door does so feeling completely satisfied with their experience. Toward that goal, we work extremely hard each and every day. The best part is, we enjoy our work and we enjoy our guests. This review is very distressful to our staff. It came as a complete shock... More
