With our most recent three night stay at the Occidental Lodge located in the historic town of Occidental (3610 Bohemian Hwy, 95465) my wife and I experienced a relaxing stay in the heart of the Redwoods, 4 miles from the Russian River and a few more miles to Jenner by the Sea and scenic ocean HWY 1. The Lodge is... More

The town is absolutely delightful; a place where time has stood still and the town is very proud of that. There is a feeling of true community spirit where people look after one another. And such is this hotel; not pretentious in any way, quite basic but with very friendly and accommodating staff. We had asked for a quiet room... More

This hotel/motel is a very chill spot to stay in Occidental. Walking distance to everything that you need and still surrounded by the natural beauty of the area.The front desk people are very nice, and most rooms have great views of the surroundings. Plus they have a pool which might come in handy if you are there during the really... More

Hi USJ13, Thank you for the review and providing your input to the Trip Advisor community. We are especially happy you mentioned our pool as it is one of the best kept secrets in all of West Sonoma County -- large in size with an expansive deck with views of the redwoods --a great spot for a morning cup of...

This was a saving grace after some real issues with a house we had rented. The location is good and they are a clean 3 star hotel right in the middle of Occidental. They include internet so depending on your carrier you may not have a cell signal in the town. Rooms are clean, pool onsite, staff friendly, some great... More

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
