My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. It's an older hotel but updated and quaint atmosphere. Room and bath were clean, staff friendly and helpful. Pool was sparkling clean. Beautifully set in the woods. And great restaurants a shirt walk away. Definitely recommend!

The photos do not do justice to this motel: the rooms are big, the beds really big and everything else is well appointed. The desk staff is very friendly and helpful, and gave great recommendations for dinner and breakfast. And in a town with no cell phone nreception, free wifi is really appreciated.

$277 may seem a lot for an upscale motel room for three guys on a motorcycle trip but this was TWO rooms each with queen bed; shared bath and separate living room and a real kitchen! No tripping over each other here! Ground floor and hear overhead guests walking about, FYI. Gorgeous location in a small town that really feels... More

This is not a 5 star hotel, but is so neat and clean that you would think it is. The front desk was very accommodating. Occidental is not so large and the hotel is within walking distance of all restaurants and shops. I stayed in the 2 room suite which was reasonably priced and well outfitted with a kitchenette, sitting... More

If you're headed to the ocean from the Santa Rosa area and are getting hungry, you won't do much better for a sit down family style Italian meal. The food is always great and has that genuine home cooked flavor. They will even make pizza ... I know kids would prefer that to other choices. Lots of little shops near... More

My wife and I stayed three nights over the Fourth of July weekend. We'd been through Occidental many times, as our kids have gone to a nearby summer camp for years, but we had never stayed. The Occidental Hotel overlooks the small town of Occidental. It's a motel-style establishment, nothing too fancy, but a very nice place to stay if... More

Quaint old-style motor lodge with charming colorful outdoor pots and hanging plants, located in a gorgeous woodsy setting, with a friendly staff. Since the building backs up right to a mountain, I don't believe there are any private decks or balconies, but there is a very nice outdoor pool in a quiet, serene setting with comfortable seating choices. Our room... More

We really like Occidental Hotel, because it's clean, affordable and the staff is always pleasant. Although a big wedding group filled the place, it was still quiet the Saturday night we stayed there. The town is so quaint and friendly, and there's a great breakfast restaurant across the street.

My son and I spent two days in this sleepy town, a getaway from the East Coast for me and respite from San Francisco for him. What a charming little town, a walk back in time with new and not so new Bohemians, dreds, pony tails, frisbee catching dogs, music, herbal shop, bakery, organic grocer, a few nice gift shops,...

This was an average hotel with a rock hard mattress and the thinnest walls ever. It was very clean however and I appreciated that. It was reasonably priced but I think for 3 nights over a $400 bill is a bit much for such a small room and not very many amenities.
