“Pleasant but a little noisy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Our room had all the basic amenities and plenty of room, but we were placed one room away from the lobby, making for loud nights and early mornings as late night revelers returned and early departers checked out. We told them in advance it was our 25th wedding anniversary, which I guess I assumed they would understand to mean we wanted romantic and quiet. The view from our window was sad, too, as it faced an ivy-laced wall leading to the parking lot (also noisy). The windows had blackout drapes, but they wouldn't fully close, so early morning sunshine peeked through a crack right into our faces. Too bad, cuz they could easily move the drapes to open from the other side. The restaurant was very good, however, and breakfast buffet was hearty and reasonably priced. The facility itself is quite pretty, and the wine tasting on Friday evening was a nice surprise. Location is on a hill with not a lot within a short walk, but one could drive to the other side of 101 to access Trader Joe's and some restaurants. We walked up the hill past the Round Barn and ran into Paradise Ridge Winery with a lovely art garden well worth visiting.

Room Tip: Request a room away from the lobby

I really enjoyed my stay at the Fountaingrove Inn. The rooms are clean, semi-updated and quite roomy. The beds are comfortable. The staff was always so friendly and helpful. I was married at Paradise Ridge Winery, just a few miles away which was SO convenient! We had a block of rooms reserved for wedding guests and the hotel was quite accommodating with that as well! Overall I would definitely stay here again...maybe next year for my anniversary!

Room Tip: All of our wedding guests stayed at the hotel and were in the main hotel building, while our room wa...

We stayed here for two nights during a family visit to Santa Rosa.

The hotel was quiet, professional, clean, and well set up. There is a breakfast in the restaurant each morning with plenty of coffee and fresh fruit. We found huge California strawberries that were just wonderful.

Conveniently located on Mondocino about 10 minutes from downtown.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the back side to avoid road noise, but honestly the noise wasn't bad at all.

From the exterior, driving up, this place looks like an upscale office park. It's really three buildings, one with restaurant, the other two with hotel rooms. We stayed here with friends on a special weekend deal. The rooms are spacious, with a separate sitting area and small but well-decorated bathrooms with separate sink and vanity. The breakfast buffet was excellent and the coffee divine. Service can be slow in the restaurant but the food was generally pretty good. We definitely would stay here again. It's a good location for visiting Sonoma wine country.

Myself and partner stayed here one night in June '12 whilst touring California. We arrived quite later and boy was this place hard to find, satnav kept taking us toward the nearby Hilton and we were up and down the same stretch of highway I don't know how many times! Ps - the Hilton are happy to direct lost guests! When we eventually arrived there was plenty of parking right outside the door and a very nice contemporary loby area on arrival with fruit and water available. Check in staff very pleasant and gave us a ground floor room down the main corridor off reception. Room was spaceous, contemporary and very clean. Large TV and free wifi ticked the media boxes and my girlfriend appreciated the massive bathroom! We had a wander around outside, there is a small outdoor pool at one end of the hotel which looked very pleasant but it was a little cool by the time of our evening arrival. We went over to the bar/restaurant building opposite the lobby and spent an enjoyable evening in the bar where they had some good "happy hour" deals on drinks and bar snacks, staff very efficient.

Overall, the hotel has the feel of a business stopover in the styling and the location but that suited us perfectly and we found it very homely for a night off the highway.

Picked this hotel on a Travelzoo special because we wanted to do some wine tasting. Did not know what the expect but were very pleased when we arrived at this nice place. The place is very different from your usual hotels and we loved the unusual design and the fact that it is located right off the highway. Our suite was extremely nice. The staff was very friendly. The Keurig coffee maker was a wonderful extra. The Equus restaurant served a very nice breakfast which was included in our stay. We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the east probably would be a little quitier as they would be farther away from the highway

Passing through Santa Rosa on the way north. Decided to stay one night. Picked this off of Hotwire and got a good deal on the room over the rack rate. This is a conference style hotel, in terms of layout. Rooms are nice, hotel size, beds comfortable, quiet, and our bath had been redone with granite counters, stone tile floors and bath surround. All in all, a good deal and a nice stay.
