“Reasonable place to stay for a night...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Comfortable beds. Room was clean and up to date. Area seems safer than it appeared at first. Friendly staff. Wifi in the north section wasn't working, but the staff fixed it. No breakfast is included, but they offer complimentary snacks in the room. Would stay here again. Water pressure could be a little more.

Room Tip: Check the wifi service in the north and south sections before choosing which room.

Don’t expect anything fancy, but it’s a clean, functional room for a reasonable price. Management had turned on the A/C before hand; so the room was comfortable on a very hot day. They even supplied a few snacks and soft drinks. We were a little surprised by the plastic-wrapped mattress, but it didn’t seem to affect our sleep.

We arrived in Santa Rosa on a US holiday weekend with no reservation.
Redwood Inn was the first place under $100 we found. The only room left was a fully handicapped room with 2 double beds. There was no shortage of hot water and clean linen. It was clean and quiet. It was occupied by several workers all of whom left their boots/runners just outside their doors. It was surprisely very quiet. The cleaning staff were friendly and very helpful. The owner/manager struck us as being a no-nonsence business like person. We would stay here again with no hesitation.

I spend a lot of time traveling for work and recently spent sever weeks in Santa Rosa. I visited many motels in the area and selected the Redwood Inn for my extended stay here. The rooms are bright and clean, and the furniture and bedding was new! Redwood Inn provided plenty of clean towels and room service every day. The Redwood staff and management are on sight 24/7 and keep the motel well maintained and noise free. I will stay here again on my next trip to Santa Rosa.

We stayed here mid September, Saturday night. We had a room (#21) that faced the street on the first level. I was surprised how quiet it was. The bed was nothing special, a standard, non-pillow-top, but fine for a night or two. The air conditioner heated/cooled quickly, the shower had plenty of hot water and the rooms were clean. The linens were fine. There was a fridge, microwave, TV. All that is necessary for a night or two touring the wine country.
This is an older motel that is independently run. It is a bargain in basic accommodations but not for someone who wants luxury. FYI, no hairdryer (but I did not ask at the desk, either). Our room was non-smoking; it did not have any "smoking odor". We would return, because it was a good value.

We stayed here for one night during a trip south. We checked in in the late evening and then went to dinner. When we returned, about 10:45pm, my wife pulled back the sheet on the made bed and found a bunch of pubic hairs. I was disgusted and went to the office to change rooms. Of course, there was no one there-a sign was posted saying they would be back at 9:15 the next morning. We slept in a sleeping bag on top of the bedspread.

The pubes in the sheets were disgusting and showed a definite lack of care on the cleanliness side. No night guy or property manager to answer the phone or office door is just downright irresponsible from the owner's perspective. If they don't care enough to have someone available, then I don't even want to think of what other corners they're cutting. The place was $75 before tax, but I would pay twice that for a room in a hotel that was at least marginally clean, comfortable and secure. I recommend you avoid the Redwood Inn.

RedwoodInn, Owner at Redwood Inn, responded to this review, September 9, 2012
The owner and entire staff sincerely apologize for the severe inconvenience and bad experience of our guests. Though not verified, the guests’ complaints are legitimate and efforts have been made to correct the deficiencies. While the linens are leased from an outside linen company and the bed sheets are always changed, unless otherwise requested by guests staying longer than one night, the responsibility ultimately lies with the on-site management and staff.

We are attempting to contact the concerned party to resolve the issue.

Very happy with our stay here. It's good value, especially compared to the exaggerated prices on the coast. We can only agree with the positive comments below. And indeed the owner does not appear to like smokers in his motel. Suits us fine.
