“Clean, comfy and cozy...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

We arrived late and exhausted. The room was clean and big enough for us. Staff was friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was disappointing - oatmeal packets, fruit, danishes, coffee and tea. The price was right and it was a great location for us. It is a motel so you can park directly in front of your room!

Stayed at this hotel specifically because of it's proximity to Russian River Brewery, as well as it's reasonably rates. Really great value hotel for a clean room, with fast internet. Not much for a breakfast, but for the price I didn't really care. The walking distance to the brewery is what sold me on it.

Room Tip: Get a room near the back of the hotel as it is near a busy street.

This modestly-priced motel offered a spacious, clean, and comfortable room for the one night we stayed. The staff was friendly and recommended restaurants close by. The bed was comfortable, and the room furnishings were adequate. The continental breakfast was very minimal with no options for protein. The location was easy to find and not too far from downtown Santa Rosa.

We stayed here for one night when we attended a wedding in the area. We were originally given a room right next to the busy road which seemed quite noisy, but we requested a change and the room at the back of the u-shaped property to which we were assigned was very quiet. Although there was nothing fancy about this property, the room was large and clean. The motel is an older type one storey motel where you park outside your room - convenient! The front desk person was helpful. All in all we were happy with our stay here.

The motel lies along the Medicino road with busy traffic during daytime At night it gets quiet.

The room was big and basic but clean and so was the bathroom.

The TV had a reasonable selection of channels, lots of telsels. Free WiFi internet worked very good with a good speed for streaming media.

Breakfast was poor, just some pastries, fruit&nut bars, coffee, juice, etc. There is no breakfast area, you collect the breakfast items in the motel lobby. Nearby are some breakfast options like the Subway opposite the motel.

Nearby the motel are a lot of shops and a large supermarket

My mother and I stopped here for a night while on a road trip. Although it's an older motel, it was clean, super spacious and very comfortable. The manager was very friendly and quite helpful in making suggestions for dinner. In the past, I've paid a whole lot more to stay at fancy hotels and resorts, but on this trip, we decided to stay at "budget" motels since it was a long trip. After a night here, I was sold on the concept! You park right outside your door and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. I would definitely stay here again.

Excellently positioned for a route coming from San Francisco and entering the wine country, we chose this motel during our car trip along the coast. Having driven out of San Francisco in the late evening as hotels are incredibly expensive there, this offered much better value only 45 minutes away! Rooms are tidy, the hotel is in a quiet surrounding and I think they even offered a small breakfast although we didn't used it. They pointed out nicely some wineries to drop in the next day which have been excellent. Very convenient and inexpensive.
