My boyfriend and I had a great 4 nights here, the staff including Angie, Skye, and Kenny (?) were always professional and very willing to help.
Pro's: location......I don't think you can find a better value for the same type of room directly on Sonoma's town square. I'm not into lace doily decoration/turn of the century accommodations, if you are this place is not for you. Free Wi-Fi in the Kitchenette, free drip coffee and tea's in the mornings. Street parking right out from was not a problem.
Con's: The street side rooms are as loud as everyone else is dishing on. I was awakened at 6am by local traffic, however, we were able to switch to a new room (hence the 2 sets of room photos) with no problems courtesy of the staff. Tiny bathrooms, bad water pressure in showers, dim lighting, lack of dressers and small closets could be problematic for some tourists although we didn't mind.
Definitely eat breakfast next door at the Sunflower Cafe, have dinner at the bar at Girl and the Fig - great bartenders (can't recall names) and eat dinner at Harvest Moon Cafe's back patio. All are within one block of the El Dorado. The back bar at the Wine Exchange across the plaza was our nightly stop and had great tasting options for $1 as well as friendly locals.
