“Nice spot in Sonoma”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

I wouldn't call this an "upscale hotel," but I do agree that it's nicer than it looks passing by. The staff was friendly, wine offered at happy hour, and the room we had was quite comfortable. The hotel asks guests to sign a "noise compliance" form, which I think inhibits roudy wine-drinkers, and the babbling fountain also provides white noise. You can't walk to the plaza, but this isn't a bad choice for Sonoma.

Very nice hotel/smaller inn&motel, in the outskirts of Sonoma, with big rooms, nice pool/hut top and good breakfast. Close to downtown, 20 min walk, 5 min in car, but nice location on the mainraod in/out of Sonoma. Clean and nice, with very serviceminded staff.

El Pueblo Inn seemed a little pricey by my standards, but since my significant other was paying (!) and it had great TA reviews, we went with it.
And I am soooo glad we did !
The room was immaculate, spacious, with a nice fireplace and ceiling fan, and the breakfast was great.
Good location, friendly front desk workers.
Did not disappoint, worth the money !

I reviewed El Pueblo before booking our couples getaway.......WOW! The Hotel was fantastic! Room was spacious, modern, very clean - everything we needed was there. The gardens were a bonus and added to our romantic getaway. The pool area was like our very own ....with the fountains and lush garden as a beautiful backdrop. The front desk staff was very friendly - ask for Willow if you need anything additional, she was there to help us. Free Breakfast was delicious and perfect for anyone. Cannot wait to come back and visit Sonoma - and we will be returning to the El Pueblo Inn.

Room Tip: The Adobe King was fabulous

This hotel is a very nice and clean hotel with big rooms. It has nice pool area with jacuzzi, gym and nice sun beds and groups with tables and chairs.
The hotel rooms are surrounded of a well kept garden, so it is very green.
To walk to the town square takes about 12 minutes and I can warmly recommend to do that. In the centre of town you will find a lot of wine tastings, restaurants and other nice places to visit. During our stay we were lucky to be there on the same day, Tuesday, as they had their farmer market in the park. A lot of food, people and live music.
I like Sonoma and El Pueblo Inn.

We went to the El Pueblo and we really enjoyed our stay. The room was accurate to the picture I saw when I made the reservation.
The room was big enough and clean. The bathroom was clean as well and very big(we had the room for disabled person). We had a nice view on the garden, and it was quiet.
The breakfast is good, and the pool area is great.

On the bad side, we found the room a little dark. But that would not stop us to go back.
Also, they it would have been nice to have a little recycling bin in the room. I had to make a bag for it, and hopped they did not pu it in the garbage.
