Hotel is conveniently located. Rooms on the garden side are nice and comfortable. All the amenities you need for a night are there. The hotel is calm at night and could get a good rest. We wanted to stay on the California Coast, but pricing was too high. This hotel was a good value.

Excellent place for us locals to stay but way too expensive for summer rates when any other time of the year the same room is $89 yet because it was summer the same room was $200 for two people. That is a shame. The breakfast in the restaurant was excellent with great food and awesome service. The staff were all... More

Love this hotel because it has 2 pools. The back one is very nicely heated. Room is very nice, clean, pool is clean. The rate on weekends is pretty pricey though (exceeds $200 a night) and they do not provide continental free breakfast although there is a restaurant on site. Would love to stay more than one night if price... More

This was about what I would expect of a BW motel. It was clean and the staff was friendly. There are 2 pools, one heated and one not. The heated pool is in the garden area The restaurant service was extremely slow (It took them 20 minutes to bring me pancakes and it wasn't that busy (Less than half full).... More

I lived in the area 30 years ago but was amazed to discover how expensive lodging has become in the Santa Rosa area. This property was a little farther away from our event than I wanted but was definitely a better value than properties that were closer.

We stay at Best Western Motels quite often and are rarely disappointed. This motel has lovely grounds and a nice breakfast room with lots to offer. I like it that the rooms have the microwave and mini fridge that are so handy. The a/c worked beautifully and as we had to keep it on overnight due to the very warm... More

We rarely write reviews but wanted to make sure this hotel received recognition. Looking at the outside, it doesn't look like much but it is worth a stay. Our family of 4 stayed in the recently renovated Rm 123. It had a large main room with queen bed, a second room with two full size beds, and a bathroom. It... More

This property is a nice older style moter court style motel. It is well kept with nice grass, trees, and two pools. The room was large and clean, but a bit dated in decor. Breakfast is available, but not included with the room price, a little unusual for a BW. It is along an older stretch of highway on the... More

We seem to have good luck with Best Western because we have yet to stay at one that was subpar. This place is no exception. BW Garden Inn is at a great location, seconds from the nearest 101 freeway exit. There's a Costco mere minutes away where we were able to refill the rental. And it's just a short hop... More
