“Great value in Santa Rosa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

I stayed here a couple of nights. The rooms were nice and clean and smelled fresh. The conveniences included a mini-fridge, microwave, in-room coffee and a flat screen hdtv. The continental breakfast was good with some nice choices. The location is centrally located and I would stay here again.

This was our second stay at this motel. It is very conveniently located for quick and easy access
to the highway for getting to the coast as well as Napa/Sonoma. Parking, wi fi and continental
breakfast are included. Breakfast is cereal, toast, waffles, pastries, a limited selection of fresh
fruit, as well as hard-cooked eggs and yoghurt. Dining area is well maintained and you can eat
in the dining room or at tables at the pool area. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are
clean and quiet, although they could use a bit of updating. There are lots of restaurants in the
area. There are newer and fancier places to stay, but we found the value for the price is hard to
beat. Would recommend.

We booked this hotel at the end of September, 2013 while attending a wedding in nearby Sabastipol, CA. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and easily accessed. The breakfast included in the relatively low daily rate is substantial and has a variety of foods. A shopping center and a Trader's Joe are a few minutes away by foot. Also nearby by car are the Charles Shultz Museum and the Luther Burbank Home. I highly recommend these sites if you have the time.

Our car club stayed here during our trip into Northern California. The facility is quite large but the parking spaces were large which relieved us of having our cars dinged by those parked by us. The rooms are large and were very clean. I'd would stay here again if I find myself in Santa Rosa. The only downside was that there are few restaurants around.

Stayed here two nights on September 25th-26th 2013. Pulling up to the hotel we were a bit scared. It looks like a hotel out of the 70's or even 60's. Checked in and went right to the room. No elevator at this place so if you have a disability make sure you ask for first floor. Not easy to bring suitcases up a flight of steps, but we managed. Room was very clean but a bit small for the two of us with 4 suitcases. This is a green hotel which means the ac/heat is controlled by movement in the room. I found it to get hot in the middle of the night with no movement in the room from us sleeping. Room was also hot when we returned at the end of the day from not being there. Continental breakfast is nicely prepared, the only thing that was weird was the breakfast worker staring at you while you were eating. Overall a great value in a great location. There are a few places to walk to from this hotel, but none of them are rated very high on TripAdvisor so we didn't venture to any of them.

Initially I was surprised at how large a facility this is. From the photos one would think it is a small "motor court" type building. Wrong! It is quite large. We had booked as a group, but unfortunately our seven couples were split up among the four buildings.
The rooms were very clean and reasonably well appointed. The buildings are not new, but they have done a good job of maintaining the facility.
The only down-side for me is the lack of restaurants within walking distance. There is a Carrow's, but that just wasn't what the group was looking for on a wine country tour. We ended up going to a shopping center taqueiria that was just okay.

Stayed for 1 night and was impressed with cleanliness, safety, facilities, staff and the price. Wanted to stay another night but they were sadly booked up. Would definitely recommend to people staying in the area.
