We stayed here on April 17-19 2014. It's a nice hotel, decent price we got a rate for $118 for those stays. friendly staff, it's not bad at all unless you wanna drive all the way to Santa Rosa (med size town) and get a Marriott / courtyard. This is only for someone who appreciates the small town experience and... More

What a nice clean and reasonably priced hotel in a great central location. We used Occidental as our staging point for several trips out to Salmon Creek, Shell and Goat Rock beaches as well as trips to Fort Ross and Bodega Bay. The hotel is right in downtown Occidental and has access to several good eats places too. I had... More

We were attending a concert at the Occidental Arts Center and didn't want to drive back down winding roads in the dark. We didn't want to pay for luxury, and the Occidental Hotel was just what we needed. The staff was friendly, the room was large, clean, and well laid out. The bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of... More

I had trouble sleeping or even being in the room during my stay because of noise. I have traveled around the country and have never experienced walls like these that amplify the noise of other rooms (TV, people talking, etc). The noise was actually louder between rooms than outside the rooms when I walked the hallways to figure out where... More

This is a nice motel, clean and with all the standard features. The location is remote, beautiful and close to Alliance Redwoods and Sonoma Canopy Tours, a great place to zipline. But there is nothing outstanding about the property itself. If you're on a tight budget, I recommend staying in Santa Rosa and driving to your destination in the Occidental... More

Quaint little motel from the 60s is clean, with a very nice staff. Beds were very soft, toilet paper was like tissue paper, towels were thin, heater old. In room fridge was handy. Hundreds of TV channels. Location is the draw, as the tiny town of Occidental couldnt be any more charming. As I said, hotel staff was very down... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. Only downside was not so friendly staff. Room great with all the needed amenities. Great location and lovely town. Not cheap but no more expensive than the nearest chain motels.

Clean, pleasant, and very standard motel-type lodging. Price seemed way too high for the quality of the room and the hotel' severe few amenities. We figured that the price point was because this is a fairly out-of-the-way town and there's no competition.

Hi Dorrit G, Thank you for your stay and feedback. We value every guest and all the comments we receive. We are more than a bit concerned about the impression you came away with of our Hotel. We reviewed the pricing of our rooms on the nights of your stay and found our rates were below those of competing, similar... More

Great hospitality, comfortable well-appointed rooms at a reasonable rate! Paid TWICE as much for a room of inferior quality in Healdsburg the prior night. Nestled in a cute town in the saddle of the coastal range, a fun place from which to explore and enjoy either (or BOTH) the wine country or the beautiful north coast Bodega/Tomales Bay area. Delicious... More

Way off the beaten path but clean! Very nice staff and the town, as the highway name states, is very bohemian! The town is only a few blocks but it has character. Bohemian Market reminds me of Trader Joes years ago.
