So glad my husband and I discovered this place! We stayed in the one of the queen rooms that over look the garden, pool and GIANT redwoods! I'm not used to seeing trees so big! The pool area was really nice and I like how there was plenty of room to spread out. Plus the pool is big enough to... More

Old style motel...small rooms. But, great location....between Guernville and the Pacific coast. Beautiful swimming pool. Golf course, yes, 18 holes, surrounded by stately trees. Easy access to river action and to the awe-some beaches. Our room was clean and comfortable. Will return.

If you took this motel and put it anywhere else it would be less than $100 a night. But place it in Sonoma County in the Redwoods and immediately the price jumps. The property is nicely landscaped, has been updated-some- but the rooms are still small and pretty minimal. Pro:The wifi worked well. Con: the in-room refrigerator was NOISY to... More

My wife I stayed here while visiting friends that live in Monte Rio. After much research we chose this place mostly because of the location and our choice was rewarded. The room, pool and grounds were clean, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the setting was quiet and peaceful. There is a small cafe and restaurant a very sort... More

Close to Bodega Bay, beautiful location along Russian River, older motel but in great remodeled shape, nice pool, some nice palms which were rare for the area and which I like to see when I leave Idaho. Very nice close restaurant dining area and post office. Close to Guerneville and a Safeway store.

You are rather limited on choices of where to stay when in the Russian River area. Most require a two-night stay which is understandable considering their livelihood is dependent on tourism. However, what isn't understandable or acceptable is a dirty room. The room was not attended to the entire time of our two-night stay. If you can any other place... More

Stayed here early August for a few nights. This is a motel not a resort. It is somewhat unloved and in need of a refurbishment. The pool needs cleaning (and tiling). The bed linens are tired and need replacing. The walls need painting. The drawers had not been cleaned in a long time. Our fridge was too noisy and reception... More

After a round of golf at what other reviewers have accurately described as the exceptional golf course next door on a warm afternoon I was looking forward to a dip in the large pool which is also accurately described as being in a nice setting. I noticed what I thought was a lot of dirt on the bottom of the... More

My husband and I loved this place. Northwood Golf Course is one of our favorite places to play golf among the giant red wood trees. We had a nice room with a private deck attached. Good place to sit and relax after golf with a glass of wine. Our deck had a great view of the beautiful redwood trees.
