This is a cute little hideaway town! The Occidental Hotel was very clean, standard room. The staff was extremely pleasant. The hotel is tucked in the side of a hilltop and close enough to walk everywhere in town. Pool area was very clean, crystal clear water.

Hello Teri H., Thank you so much for the kind words. We are glad you enjoyed Occidental. It truly is "a cute little hideaway town" as you described. In fact, the whole village is designated a County Historical District to ensure it will not lose any of it's unique characteristics. A visit to Occidental really feels like a true getaway....

With our most recent three night stay at the Occidental Lodge located in the historic town of Occidental (3610 Bohemian Hwy, 95465) my wife and I experienced a relaxing stay in the heart of the Redwoods, 4 miles from the Russian River and a few more miles to Jenner by the Sea and scenic ocean HWY 1.

The town is absolutely delightful; a place where time has stood still and the town is very proud of that. There is a feeling of true community spirit where people look after one another. And such is this hotel; not pretentious in any way, quite basic but with very friendly and accommodating staff. We had asked for a quiet room...

Hi USJ13, Thank you for the review and providing your input to the Trip Advisor community.

This was a saving grace after some real issues with a house we had rented. The location is good and they are a clean 3 star hotel right in the middle of Occidental. They include internet so depending on your carrier you may not have a cell signal in the town. Rooms are clean, pool onsite, staff friendly, some great...

Nestled among the redwoods, this is a definite sleeper hotel. Occidental is a wonderful town and this hotel while no frills, does have a pool, is clean and you can't beat the price or location. It's worth the drive.

We got a room with a kitchenette since we like to go to farmers markets and then make simple dishes with locally procured items. But the kitchen had no plates, silverware, cups, mugs, kitchen towels, kitchen detergent, pans, and pots. It did have a coffeemaker with coffee and tea fixings, coffee mugs, microwave, and refrigerator. But nothing else. It was...

First of all get this straight: this is not a quaint, boutique or luxury inn like many expect in Sonoma County. This is a straight forward, old-fashioned motel that has been nicely updated. It is very clean. The beds and pillows are comfortable. There is plenty of hot water. There is a microwave, mini-fridge, and coffee pot. It is a...
