We stayed in that hotel for 2 nights. It's old but stylish. We like the atmosphere and the old building itself. You don't feel like it's a hotel but a family home. Their breakfast is simple and tasty. I like everything there except the wall is too thin. You can hear every squeaky sound and snoring from next door guests.... More

Good location. Hotel has canoes you can use, which is really fun to go down the river. We had room with balcony which is only way to go. Rooms are very small with no frills. No coffee in room. Breakfast was good. Restaurant was closed.

This inn is right on the river, just steps out the lobby door down to the dock, where you have access to the hotel kayaks. This was an added plus. Breakfast is self-serve and simple. Cereal. Bagels. Eggs. Bacon. Sausage. Juice. Our room was clean and, while not luxurious, quite comfortable. It included a fridge and a sitting area inside,... More

The lodge has been nicely kept up, it dates back to the 1800's. The family that runs it are very nice, and they serve a tasty breakfast in the morning. We enjoyed our stay here. The location is great for exploring the Russian River area.

We had a great time at the Highland Dell celebrating our friend's birthday! The team was friendly, food was great and the beds were SO comfortable. The property is very peaceful and beautiful, definitely recommended if you want to get away in Northern California!

The lodge is from 1908. Got renovated in 2006 which is great. It looks great. I love the "lobby" which means the living room ouside. This place is actually a big house. It is classic and very nice for a weekend getaway. The place looks a bit old but i believe it supposed to be like this. (+) *the bathroom... More

We took our anniversary trip to the Russian River area this year. We stayed 2 nights at the Highland Dell Hotel because it was dog friendly with a very reasonable pet fee! $10 per night!! The owner is very accommodating and friendly. We were given a 2 bed suite that overlooked the Russian River. The room was very comfortable. There... More
