We stay here every year for the Wine Festival (25+). Melody Ranch is only 2 blocks from the Park. It has just what you want, clean rooms, friendly staff and great value. Over the last several years the rooms have been updated (new beds, carpet, installed new shower). If you are looking for a nice place to stay with the... More

We were a bit surprised after reading the reviews. This is not a nice place. The lobby was the first clue as it needs some new carpet and updating. Maybe I am just not getting the point of the 'nostalgic' decor. The room appeared clean. But had a musty dusty smell. The bed had a blanket and a bedspread which... More

My husband couldn't wait to be able to stay in this old style one story highway motel with original tile and room layout. Some updating has been done, including very good mattresses. Extremely good value. Very clean. The heater in the wall between room and bathroom is a well-maintained original that is very comfortable and quiet in both rooms. Next... More

Perfect location. Very friend staff. Rooms are old, but clean. The bathroom and show is very clean. The room does not have a frig, but the staff will gladly keep some items in their frig for you. I would definitely come back.

Good enuff for a overnight rest stop. Deco may seemed dated but the room was clean. Same for bathroom, the shower closet is great for winter. Whilst checking in, we had the good fortune of smelling their dinner of bbq ribs. Staff were very friendly.

The good: Inexpensive, very friendly staff, clean room & central location -walking distance to downtown shopping, winetasting & dining. Bed was firm, but comfy. The bad: Needs a bit of an upgrade. Carpets & furniture look pretty dated -grey/brown carpet & muted color furniture (I think both meant not to show dirt/stains) only serves to look dirty when clean. The... More

Luxury this isn't, but it's a fun way to save a few bucks and flash back to times gone by. As others note, it is very clean and well kept, like a time capsule, BUT it is a budget place, so I suggest you bring your own soap, shampoo, etc. Those things are provided (no hair dryer though), but the...

Very clean place, and the location is fantastic. Close to the park which is ringed with places to eat and try some of the great local wines and brews. Easy off and back on to the freeway. We will stay here again for sure, the price is great.

Charming 1960s style single story motel with kidney shaped pool. Rooms are dated but totally adequate and very clean. Location is wonderful, one block off the square within easy walking distance of the best restaurants and numerous wine tasting rooms. I love this place and stay here often.

After reading about this motel in an article in Conde Nast Travelers magazine, we decided to give this little throw back motor lodge a try and were not dissapointed. Nothing fancy for sure but the rooms were comfortable, quite and clean. You can tell this family run motel is well taken care of. The best part is that after a... More
