We read the good reviews on Tripadvisor and I figured this place would be nice enough for a one night, quick trip up from the East Bay to Healdsburg. We were so disappointed. We pre-paid $227 for a two queen bed room. I didn't figure it was going to be spectacular, but the pictures looked so nice. I guess I didn't realize there was a renovated section of the hotel and another "run-down" section. We had a "Wine Tasting Room." Can't imagine how much the renovated - think they call them "Tuscan" rooms - must have cost for the night we stayed.
The room was not much more than an old motel room. The room had no natural light whatsoever, but a bright hallway light peeked through the shades all night - making me think it was 8 a.m. at 4:30 a.m.. I would say the room was quite clean, as it generally was, however we did find rather bright red looking bloodstains on the sheets, along with an unknown dark hair. That was pretty disconcerting. The furniture was old and ugly - the chair reminded us of those chairs you see in an oncologist's office where patients get chemo. The bathroom sink, counter, and toilet could have used an upgrade. Just a bummer of a room.
For $227, I was really disappointed...oh well. At least it was just a one night stay. I didn't actually see any of the renovated rooms, but if you were intending to stay here, I'd be sure you are booked into one of those unless you don't mind getting a low budget motel room for your good money.
