When arriving at the El Pueblo Inn, my first reaction was "Oh wow... I can't believe I'm about to pay more than $200 for a night here." It looks like any one of the thousands of roadside motels anywhere.
And while it is pricey, the rooms are decidedly HOTEL, not motel quality. The rooms are sparkling clean. The bathrooms feel like they might in a hotel built in the last ten years: plush linens, a powerful shower head, shaving mirror, clean tile.
The setting is nice and the 24-hour pool/hot tub is a great feature (24 hours with a note requesting quiet after 10 PM). Breakfast is fine but not great.
I enjoyed the very firm beds, but others might find them to be uncomfortable. They are substantially firmer than any national chain's beds.
The hotel provides free wireless internet access but it is very slow. Be prepared for dial-up speeds.
TVs are small but each includes a DVD player.
Rooms include two comfortable recliners, which I greatly enjoyed.
As other reviewers have said, the Inn is not really within quick walking distance of Sonoma Plaza. It's a very quick drive, or an extended walk.
All in all, the El Pueblo Inn is a solid choice, but because of the price, I would recommend that you try to book other places first if you're quoted a rate above $200. I would gladly return here for $150/night.
