“Nice rooms, nice location, nice people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2007

The Sonoma Valley Inn is about two blocks from the Sonoma center. The
inn is best described as a motel with perks -- definitely not a hotel, which was fine with us. There's plenty of free parking, an attractive center courtyard with a small pool and even a steam room, and fridges and of course wine glasses and corkscrews in the rooms. We paid $140 a night -- reasonable, I thought. We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful, and the location was great. We hit the wineries by day, returned to Sonoma for dinner, and walked back to the motel with no worries about drinking and driving. We'd stay again.

Sonoma was a pleasant surprise. We arrived early, but our room wasn't ready, so we toured a few more wineries before checking in. When we did check in, the lovely lady at the front desk informed us that we had been uprgaded to a Suite. Wow, what a surprise! We not only now had a King bed, but an open fire place, a balcony, a jacuzzi, and a bathroom fit for a king! We didn't get the opportunity to enjoy the outdoor pool, sauna and spa, but there were a few people around the pool, and it was a very peaceful area. Wish we had stayed here for longer. The only downside to this accomodation, was the internet in the lobby. It was exceptionally slow, and would not open several websites, such as simple search engines, and several Australian websites. However, we were shown where there was an internet cafe, around the corner, and they were exceptionally helpful there.
Would we stay here again? Definitely. Vey handy to everything,
and within walking distance to the Plaza.

  • Liked — Being upgraded to a Suite! Wow!
  • Disliked — The exceptionally slow internet

My husband and I stayed at the Sonoma Valley Inn during our first anniversary trip. For the price, it was a very pleasant surprise. Our room was large and clean, with a nice wood-burning fireplace. The staff was pleasant and helpful, and the breakfast was a nice plus. Coffee and refrigerator in the room, and everything you need to enjoy some of the wine that you pick up during the day! Great experience, we will stay there again.

My Sweetie had never visited the wine country, so I took the opportunity to show him Sonoma and Napa valleys in the Spring with just the beginnings of buds on the vines. The Sonoma Valley Inn is absolutely stunning for the price, the wonderful bed, morning breakfast brought to your door, etc. All the little luxurious touches that make a good vacation great. I highly recommend walks through the Sonoma square, driving through Valley of the Moon, Russian River Valley. Lots of wonderful local history, not to mention fantastic wines and food. Solo private time together, matched with comfort, and a warm jacuzzi soak in the evenings made it a very memorable escape. Enjoy this! The absolutely best value for your $ in town.

We stayed in Sonoma for one night driving through on our way to Tahoe. Great location - walking distance to all the shops and restaurants on the square, and 1/3 the price of the other lodging on the square. The desk manager was extremely helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations, etc. Felt like we were staying at a small Inn, not a Best Western! Our room was confortable and quiet, and the included breakfast was delivered to our room in the morning. Free internet access was also a definite plus. We were pleased with this Inn, and would return again for sure.

  • Liked — included breakfast, friendly staff, & comfortable bed
  • Disliked — breakfast arrived 10 minutes early...
