This isn't the kind of place that necessary blows you away on first impression. The historic building is cute, but the railings are bit run down, and the rooms look like a standard motel room at first glance. but then you start to realize some of the little touches that really make this place stand out, like the high quality...

I love staying at the Rio Nido Lodge because it feels just like home. The rooms are spotless and the homemade breakfasts are wonderful. Armstrong Woods is just a 5 minute bike ride away, and with access to the Russian River just across the street, and with a fine assortment of wineries and restaurants close by, this spot can't be...

Arriving after a long rush hour drive out of the city, the owner Brett welcomed us with big smile & even personally showed us our room. The facility is very clean, updated, practical and has that comfortable home feel. The breakfast that's included with the room rates was delicious & loved the homemade jams! The bed was indeed big &... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. After a great nights sleep in a clean & comfy room, I enjoyed the simple but delicious breakfast. We enjoyed being so close to the wineries & also enjoyed live music just across the way. Fun weekend. Great hosts! Thank you.

We love staying at the Rio Nido! Brett and Yulia are always so welcoming. Rooms are clean and cozy and breakfast is delicious. We love staying at the Rio Nido, we consider it out home away from home. Annie & Pete

Loved this little place. So peaceful and nice. Rooms were cozy and comfortable. Breakfast was extremely good. Price is good. This place is close to many wineries and town. We could walk over to Korbel. Would recommend.

We only stayed one night but the room was comfortable. A little small but we knew that from the description. The owners are very kind. Breakfast included. Complimentary toiletries are a nice touch. The walls are a little thin so you can hear your neighbours once in awhile but once it's dark, it is absolutely quiet. No street noise. Some... More

S B, Thank you for your review. Our Forest King rooms do have shared walls and unfortunately not all of our guests are aware of their surroundings. For your stay it seems this was the case. We do hope you give us another chance if you return to the area. Brett Gibbs- Owner More

I wanted to stay close to the Armstrong Redwood Preserve and I found online this wonderful small hotel. It was quiet, clean, cozy; breakfast was lovely and the owners very attentive. Highly recommend it and we hope to go back soon!

I love this place! I found it in the last minutes and what a nice surprise! The lodge is surrounded by beautiful redwoods. In the morning you can smell the redwood and feel the mist. There is a nice big sitting area upstairs giving a homey feel. The room is new, clean and comfortable. We stay in Rm22 and the... More

A fantastic place nestled within the Redwoods. We stayed for one night during May, whilst on a road trip, in one of the Forest Rooms. It was very clean, comfortable and quiet. There was an amazing choice for breakfast which was home cooked by the owners. The owners were very helpful and provided recommendations for where to eat and place... More
