I stayed here with my Family for 2 nights. This a typical forest lodge in a beautiful setting in the redwoods. We had a room with a small bacony facing the river. Room was very clean and perfect for our short stay. We were visiting my parents who have a small cabin near by. We spent mostly all day and... More

Great room and historic too nestled in the peaceful woods. We found this lodge to be just perfect for our visit and after our overnight stay wished we had a few more days to enjoy there! Rooms were roomy, spotless and so comfortable with a great view of the river below. The breakfast was plentiful and so good....eggs, yogurt, sausage... More

I recently had the pleasure to stay at ths wonderful historic hotel for three nights with the wife and grand kids. The rooms were older( historic) small but clean, bathroom updated and had a balcony with a river view. Breakfast every morning was included with attention towards the children. The menu varied but mostly scrambled eggs, bagels, bacon and even... More

We loved the look and the location of the Highland Dell Lodge. The staff was friendly and always available to help. We were pleasantly surprised by the great food and enjoyed a lovely dinner overlooking the river. We only wish we had stayed longer.

Historic building with nicely updated rooms. The bar/restaurant/deck overlooking the bend in the river is very relaxing. The inn keepers are appropriately friendly and helpful. This is not a get-up-early-hit-the-road place with buffet breakfast at 0800. We were there early in the week. This is a sleepy, quiet out-of-the-way place. It is an entertainment and event venue, so check their... More

Staff very accommodating.. Sea food special very reasonably price and excellent. Home made Apple Strudel was very European and again excellent. Continental Breakfast included Quiche and warm bagels.. Setting of the Deck overlooking Russian River stunning. Rooms nice but old fashioned like one would expect from an Inn built at the turn of the century. We would go back if... More

Great little hotel. Took a river view room for $128 and it was good value. Comfortable beds, nice view, and a really wonderful breakfast. I suspect it would be a bit noisy if it was busy (it was almost empty when we visited) as the rooms are not terribly well soundproofed. Monte rio is a bit nil, not much to... More

The owners, Herb and Ingrid, are German expats that have made the Highland Dell their little alpine hotel. The friendly atmosphere, bar and restaurant more than make up for the "tiny" but well maintained rooms. The buffet breakfasts are really nice and when there aren't many people staying there, Herb will special order for you. The area is somewhat depressed... More

We stayed in two queen/balcony rooms for five days - a family holiday. We were the only people for four days during the week - it was like having our own home. Herb or Ingrid made breakfast each morning - eggs, bacon, bagels, english muffins, with a great selection of hot and cold cereals, juice, milk, coffee. They have a... More

This was a great hotel, they normally do not take new guest checking in on Wed but our travel dates changed and they allowed us to do so. We were the only guest in the whole hotel [we felt special]. The inn keeper was really friendly and made us a great breakfast the next morning. The rooms are small but... More
