We had a garden room literally set amid beautiful tall redwoods which consequently made the room dark, but still charming. Our room and bathroom were clean and bed comfortable, although perhaps the decor/paintwork could be freshened up. Breakfast was adequate and we liked the fact that all muffins and pastries were home cooked and delicious. The service in the restaurant... More

This small older inn is located right on the river within walking distance of the Monte Rio beach. The rooms show their age, but in a charming, quirky way. They allow dogs in some rooms and it is a great location for your quiet pooch with nice gardens and a pretty lawn overlooking the river. The included breakfast is more... More

This inn is perched right over the Russian River with beautiful views up and down the river. The riverside rooms are more expensive, but you have great views from all over the property. At night you can watch the fog climb up the river from the coast and feel the temperature change as it arrives. The restaurant is excellent, but... More

We ate here. There was no clear signs for restaurant, and hostess was surprised/abrupt when we asked where the restaurant area was. After that, the experience was very pleasing. The halibut was fantastic. My son had the salmon. Excellent as well. The cheese tray, with local cheeses was also good

This charming location nestled in Monte Rio right along the Russian River figuratively forces you to unplug from the frenetic, to relax and to ro-boot. Built in 1906, forever touched by charm left over from a bygone era, you can feel the history surrounding you. Does it have all the ultra-modern amenities common to the Four Seasons', the Hyatt's and... More

The room was very small and did not feel clean; desperately needs a facelift. Not a lot of people staying on night we were there; felt we overpaid for the accommodation we had. Continental breakfast was muffins, a bit of cereal and juice. Funny as their restaurant is superb; really the highlight of this establishment! I would definitely recommend having... More

This is a basic hotel in a terrific location, if you like quiet, peaceful, and beautiful scenery, that is. The river location is amazing. Really enjoyed sitting on the deck with a glass of wine. Not much else going on here, but it's fairly central to a lot of activities that you can drive to without much trouble.

My husband and I came here for our anniversary. We want to get FAR out of LA to somewhere with big trees and water. Village Inn on the Russian River looked perfect. We had the most relaxing stay. For 3 nights we barely left the property. We ate our meals here and spent the day lounging on the deck looking... More

Great Meal! Room needs work--carpet replaced, bathroom floor replaced, some updating needed. Cool location! Really awesome setting in the redwoods and on the river. Food was very, very good, and staff was friendly.
