We stayed in the Vineyard View Suite at the Cottage Inn. Upon arrival into the room my wife awed at the beauty of the room. When the large window doors are open the feeling in the room is very open and outdoorsy. This is important because there is no private outdoor area with this room. The staff is extremely helpful...

We stayed in the South suite for 3 nights. It had some great aspects and some annoyances that kept it from being superior. Positives: location was fantastic, close to square and running path, staff friendly, property is quaint and quiet, breakfast service is fun. The rooms would be great for a friends-group or family stay. Concerns: the South suite has... More

We just came back from a trip to Sonoma where we stayed at the Cottage Inn and Spa. The location was amazing just two blocks from the Sonoma Plaza where you could find shopping, restaurants, and coffee shops. We loved the accommodations with fresh pastries delivered to our door each morning at 8am. We also loved the fire pit in... More

The Cottage Inn and Spa was perfect from the moment we walked into the soothing courtyard. The room was beautiful and the staff was excellent. It is a very short walk to the square (shopping and restaurants) and to the bike/walking path. Favorite memory - relaxing in cozy oversized "chairs" in front of the sparkling fire. Can't wait to come... More

A wonderful place which we highly recommend. The facilities and service were excellent. It's centrally located and only 3 mins walk from the Plaza. It's worth the money and we'd definitely book again.

We spent two nights at The Cottage Inn and Spa in the Vineyard View Suite. It was the most expensive aspect of a three week tour of the state, that included several 5 * hotels. The location is, as others have mentioned, just brilliant - and we really enjoyed being able to walk to some of Sonoma's excellent restaurants in... More

Only stayed for one night in the studio and had a splendid time. We were able to walk downtown, listen to live music, eat dinner, drink, and listen to more live music and still find our way back. The location couldn't be better. Had our own private patio that we spent the morning on. The beds were very comfortable.

We reserved two rooms (South & East) for a Sonoma 50th birthday weekend. Everything about the Cottage Inn & Spa experience exceeded our expectations. The rooms were thoughtfully decorated and had everything from milk, orange juice, coffee, tea and water right down to bath crystals for the Jacuzzi tub. WiFi was available, but cell coverage was great and we didn't... More

Booked room at last minute and we're very surprised how nice it was. Staff was very helpful with all questions and the location to town square was perfect for walking tried to book a third night but no vacancy. Would definitely stay here if I get the chance to see Sonoma again!

My wife and I recently completed a trip to Sonoma for our 20th wedding anniversary. Using trip advisor I quickly narrowed my choice down to The Cottage Inn and MacArthur Hotel. We went with the CI and was not disappointed. Wonderfully attentive staff and the room was perfect. We chose the Fountain Room and felt it served the bill. It... More
