Nestled among the redwoods, this is a definite sleeper hotel. Occidental is a wonderful town and this hotel while no frills, does have a pool, is clean and you can't beat the price or location. It's worth the drive.

Desk person was friendly and very accommodating regarding helping me choose the right room as I need quiet to sleep. Room was dated but clean, comfortable and a nice size. Loved the location in a small town where everything was in close walking distance. We were able to get dinner and a beer next door after we arrived and breakfast... More

We got a room with a kitchenette since we like to go to farmers markets and then make simple dishes with locally procured items. But the kitchen had no plates, silverware, cups, mugs, kitchen towels, kitchen detergent, pans, and pots. It did have a coffeemaker with coffee and tea fixings, coffee mugs, microwave, and refrigerator. But nothing else. It was... More

First of all get this straight: this is not a quaint, boutique or luxury inn like many expect in Sonoma County. This is a straight forward, old-fashioned motel that has been nicely updated. It is very clean. The beds and pillows are comfortable. There is plenty of hot water. There is a microwave, mini-fridge, and coffee pot. It is a... More

We stayed in room 184 during the Thanksvigiving weekend. On the plus side, the hotel is clean and the outside grounds are well kept. The location is great, as the hotel is located in the small downtown area of occidental so we could walk everywhere. The negative issues were that the king bed mattress was really firm. For others this... More

Checked in here Fourth of July Weekend and really enjoyed our stay. Be sure to ask for one of the remodeled rooms as they are decorated nicely, very clean and spacious. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again when returning to the area. All the wonderful Occidental restaurants are just a very short walk... More

We generally stay at the Inn at Occidental, a charming and very expensive B&B nearby. But we were with a group this time, so opted for the Occidental Hotel. It wasn't a "special occasion" place (Stay at the Inn at Occidental for that special celebration), but a totally acceptable hotel with very good rates. It was off the main road,... More
