Very basic accommodations. Clean and good value, and the owners were very friendly. Located centrally for wine-tasting, but the entire valley is only 15 miles long or so. Only real complaint is the traffic noise from Highway 128, which was surprisingly loud.

Did a two night stay here and loved it! Very affordable, especially when compared to other options in the area. The owner was very kind and let us check in well after the cutoff check-in time. He made coffee in the morning for us, and even lent us his iron & ironing board before the wedding we were attending. It... More

We stayed at the Anderson Valley Inn for one night after a long road trip from Crescent City. The room was small and dark and very lack of facilities. No TV, no coffee or tea making facilities, no shampoo, no hair dryer and the wifi has a mind of its own...very intermittent!

Stayed one night here and it was a perfect in between location for wine tasting and even a quick trip to the coast. The area is very scenic and the locals are very nice. I was checking in late and they had no problems accommodating that. It is a small establishment so don't expect too many amenities but the charm... More

We stayed at the Anderson Valley Inn for one night while visiting wineries in the area. The location for visiting the wineries around Philo is excellent. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The room was small and simple, but impeccably clean. It was 97 degrees the day we arrived and the rooms do not have air conditioning. However, it... More

We found the Anderson Valley Inn on TripAdvisor while looking for a place to stay for a two day trip to Anderson Valley. We were intrigued by the description of "no tv or phone", "intermittent Wi-Fi", and the thought of sitting around the fire pit sharing a good bottle of Anderson Valley wine. And that is what we got. The... More

We spent two nights at the Inn and enjoyed the quiet and attention to detail. We had a unit with a kitchen, which was great for coffee and cheese and crackers. There was big fridge, but no stove. The owner was great--friendly and informative. They use compact fluorescence bulbs and seem concerned about the planet, which we liked. The nearby... More

There seem to be a lot of reviews here lamenting the fact that AVI has no TVs, but for me that's the draw. No phone, no TV, perfect. Lovely rustic rooms, comfy beds and great places to sit outside, read a book and enjoy the sunshine. Spotty cell service is another plus! Spending time in Anderson Valley is about exploring... More

We stayed here on a last minute impromptu trip to Anderson Valley -- our first visit in late October. Bob was very helpful in getting us set up and leaving a light on as we arriving late and even turning up the heat so it would be warm and cozy when we arrived. The Inn is basic and comfortable accommodations...and... More

My wife and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary. She'd always wanted to go to Napa. I had originally booked a ridiculously cheap Comfort Inn in Fairfield. "Comfort Inn?" she asked, giving me the look that's become so familiar in 2.5 decades. "It was a great deal! And it's really close to a lot of vineyards." The look again. I... More
