The physical location between a gas station and a school isn't great, but so what. You should be spending the days exploring the surround area.
Everything else about the place is fantastic. We had a fireplace room in the second building that was very comfortable and well appointed. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. We also enjoyed the daily breakfast and cocktail hour. It's a short walk from the downtown Sonoma square and shops. We will defintely be returning.
