We visited for our 33rd Anniversary because we heard this was a nice quiet place, comfortable and quaint to stay. They are like small cottages. Some have balconies that overlook the river. The staff is very pleasant and the owner was wonderful to us, very helpful with recommendations for food and attractions. It is a short drive to several wineries... More

It is a curious mix, Beautiful and appealing outdoor ambience.. nice patio, beautiful flowers and trees, meandering river.. Rooms are straight out of the 1970s or before, window A/C which was not real efficient, everything "older". The staff was very amenable and pleasant. I was attending an outdoor wedding which was BEAUTIFUL.. the vows had the river as a backdrop,... More

We thought this might be a fun stop on our trip between the Sonoma Coast and wine country and we were a bit disappointed. I wish I could be more enthusiastic but it was just ok in an early-sixties retro sort of way (which I'm totally fine with) but the pricing was all wrong. Positives? Sure: comfortable bed, peaceful balcony... More

Great old time Russian River motel with updated two-room rustic cabins. Good continental breakfast. Each cabin has deck seating and there are several very pleasant sitting areas on the way down to the river where you can picnic and swim. Can walk next door to deli and get picnic goodies.

We stayed there in May and we got the corner room. I think they call it the couple/romantic room. Our room was away from the street so it was quiet and also has a balcony with the view of the river. The room was clean although a little dated. Some of the rooms are being renovated and they look great... More

Came for two nights and stayed six, everyday we just couldn't leave. Couldn't be more adorable, great service, gorgeous, total relaxation. I'll definitely be back. I LOVE it here. The grounds are so beautiful, the trees and breeze are intoxicating.

We stayed at Rio Villa Beach resort for a girls get away! The front desk gals were very helpful as we were going to be early. They suggested we enjoy the grounds and river while our room was being cleaned.The grounds are beautiful and we sat by the river and my friend painted and I read. Very peaceful! Upon checking...

For all the times my partner and I have gone up to the Russian River, we never stayed overnight before staying at Rio Villa. The challenge has been that most places require a two-night minimum, so you have to either buzz up there after work or take advantage of a three-day weekend like we did on Easter. The website is...

My wife and I were there this past weekend for a quiet getaway. The front desk clerks are extremely friendly and helpful. When I asked for extra pillows for my pregnant wife, the clerk left her desk to get two pillows and delivered them to our room right away. The clerk was very knowledgable of the area, and offered dining... More

Stopped in late one night, and the staff ( new ownership ) were very pleasant and set us up with 2 rooms. We had a total of 3 large dogs with us, they were welcomed.
