“Good stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Stayed here more than a week.
Friendly staff, lovely outdoor heated pool, very warm hottub, yummy restaurant, comfy beds, good wifi signal, a fridge on the room is always a +,...

Make sure that breakfast is including in the prize u pay, its quiet expensive, i ate better for cheaper.... Thats the only downside i can think of right now :)

If you can avoid it, do. The front desk service is slow and the rooms are outdated, but they have tried to update them the best that they could.

I arrived at 3pm from all the way across the county (east coast) and had bee up for close to 24 hours. I needed to freshen up and go to a place I was in town to consult with. I was told no rooms were clean because they had sold out the night before so they were getting a slow start to turning over the hotel. I changed clothes in a small lobby bathroom. When I returned around 6 I came in while a wine tour bus was unloading with several drunk individuals. I had to wIt close to 30 minutes then to check in.

I reserved a king room, but was given a double room. All of the windows were street level and the shades did not close all the way, so I couldn't block out the light. The tv didn't work. That group of drunk wine seekers I mentioned....right next to me. Lucky me. I will not be returning. If you are looking for a ice quite night, not here. If you're looking for amenities, not here. It was a one night and done stop for me!

This hotel is centrally located with easy access to Highway 101. We stayed 2 nights and our room was located in the building with the convention center. It was great the first night, but not so great the 2nd night with the noise from the banquet attendees standing around drinking and smoking. The management puts a note in your room "advising" you that a function is taking place that night and they "hope" it will not disturb you. I recommend you ask what might be going on before you let them put you in that building.
The WIFI is free and works very well. You will find tons of restaurants in the area ranging from fast food to 5 star.
Aside from our room location we found the room to be clean and comfortable.

Arrival 2/5 - we stopped at the Tourist Information to ask about rooms for the night. We wanted somewhere quality with an outdoor pool. The helpful lady phoned a few places and got rates for us. The Fountaingrove fitted the bill. The hotel is not well signed from the road. We drove straight past it a few times. It is on the corner of Mendochino Ave and Fountain Grove. It's there as you turn into Fountain Grove. Blink and you'll miss the entrance!! From the car park there are no signs for reception. Check in was fast and friendly. You can drive to the upper car park if your room is on that level. Again there are no signs to direct you. there is a door to the room, but no signs. One of the worst signed hotels I've ever stayed at. Rather strange.

Room 4/5 - a good size room with king bed, large comfy chair, fridge, board/iron, plenty of storage space. Good quality linen and pillows. Very comfy bed - we slept well.

Bathroom 4/5 - a good size with full size bath and shower above. Separate outside sink with coffee machine and hair dryer.

Location 3/5 - a short drive to downtown Santa Rosa.

Other 3/5 - there is a nice, though small pool with a seating area. The gym looked ok. There is a restaurant. Free wifi. The hallway carpets looked dirty and in need of a good clean.

Value 3/5 - we paid $204 including tax. On the high side.

Overall 3/5 - nice room, pleasant staff, but awful signs and dirty carpets mark it down. Easy to sort out with a bit of thought.

Stay here for our 4 day weekend visit to Russian river valley and dry creek valley. We stay on the first level in order to avoid the second floor, per notes on tripadvisor and yelp. Room was clean and great for sleeping. Had to keep the fan on in the room all night to fight the dampness/musty smell... But understand basis the recent rain and the room being built into the mountain. Did not eat at the restaurant but caution that there is better places both in this and surrounding towns basis others we met who ate there.
Would stay again for just a bed but might try the Hilton behind it for a step up in room grade..

Loved the style of this hotel from the outside. Large room and very clean. It has a great pool and hot tub. Nice bar but very noisy. We didn't sleep well as the beds rolled to the middle, we think the mattresses need to be replaced. Very difficult to get to your room with your luggage. You can either drag your suitcases up a steep stairwell or park your car on a steep incline and struggle to get your bags into the hotel as all rooms open to the inside hallway. Room numbers were not marked on the outside of the buildings. We were exhausted by the time we got all of our luggage into our room. No breakfast was included. We would not stay here again.

Room Tip: Always get a room on the first floor. This hotel is very difficult to enter otherwise.

We really liked this Inn. It is a very, very nice 3 star hotel. The room we had which was in the convention center building, was large, clean, and quiet. The bathroom could use a little more light, but we found having the sink was outside the bathroom was a nice feature. It is near the rte 101 highway and a short drive to downtown Santa Rosa. The main part of our visit was to spend a day at the Charles Schultz museum and wanted to stay nearby so we could explore other places of interest in the area. As part of the hotel package we were able to have "free" breakfast. The breakfast buffet was better than average. The coffee was really good. The other items were eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries, french toast, and fresh fruit. The bacon, eggs, and fruit were good. The french toast was horribly dry - do not eat. The bar was fine and had a decent selection of beers, it was pricey, and cold place to sit. The Inn also has an outdoor pool and hot tub which was a nice area to hang out in. I'd stay here again and would recommend it to others.
