April 24, 2015 My wife and I are visiting family in the area. They wanted us to dine at their favorite local restaurant! Well! It was probably the best overall experience at a restaurant, from excellent food, excellent service at the appropriate pace. The menu selection made it hard to make a final decision. We all ended up with different... More

Village Inn was our 2nd stop during Restaurant Week. We had never been but the Restaurant Week menu looked very appetizing so off we went. The hotel - restaurant in in the tiny village of Monte Rio. It's off the main road (116, River rd) tucked in on the bank of the Russian River. Surrounded by huge redwoods, it is... More

The Village Inn is quiet and quaint with views overlooking the Russian River. Some scenes from the movie Holiday Inn were filmed here. One of the best things about the Inn is the beds. They have latex beds and pillows. Our bed was so comfortable that we ended up buying one when we got home. Room 22 has a little... More

My wife and I visited the Village Inn in Monte Rio on 12 March, during Restaurant Week in Sonoma County. Restaurant Week is a great opportunity for locals to visit eateries off the beaten path and to expand their list of go to restaurants. The Village Inn is a tad difficult to find as it is tucked in the redwoods... More

Great inn, great people. Owner was very friendly and the place has everything you would need. We stayed one night and they upgraded us to a waterview room. I would stay again if in the area. Jasper woods near by! Oh and the restaurant was delicious!

This a wonderful setting anytime of the day or night. The larger room to the left as you enter with the feature fireplace is a more comfortable room for dinner after dark, whilst the long room with the river views works best during daylight hours. Great food, wine and service.

This little bed and breakfast along the river has deck and inside seating. I would suggest rooms across from the main house is best. Rooms were small. Shower is made for 6 ft and shorter people. Food was ok considering the area. A bit pricey and breakfast was coffee, hard boil egg and toast. No wifi coverage. Views were beautiful... More

My partner booked us a zipline trip in Occidental with Canopy Tours, then a night at the Village Inn in Monte Rio for my 72nd birthday. Ziplining through the Redwoods was exciting and our dinner and stay at the VI was wonderful! The owner, Mark, was friendly and charming, our waitress, Sarah, was excellent, and the food couldn't have been... More

My husband and I were there for a triathlon, which was w/in walking distance to the start of the race. It was well known around the area that there was going to be a race, however, when we asked the manager (?) if there was any place we could store our bikes, he was very rude, and just said no....

The idyllic setting of this hotel deep in the forest on the banks of the Russian River makes it a great place to stay for a night or two. This hotel featured in the film “Holiday Inn” in the 1940s and has still retained its period charm. The owners were very welcoming and our room was comfortable, clean and had... More
