Four of us stayed one night here and made our reservations online two nights before we arrived. We all had seperate rooms and all the rooms were very nice. The decor is shabby-chic but very comfortable. You are right upstairs from the Rocker Oysterfeller's Restaurant but that is a good thing! We ate dinner there after hanging out in the... More

Four of us went for dinner and enjoyed the food and service. We had fried chicken, fried fish tacos, a fried oyster po boy, FABULOUS onion rings and an exquisite butter lettuce salad with asparagus and grilled shrimp. The hotel dining room is part of the Valley Ford Hotel which was built in the mid-1800's. The service is friendly.

This is a quaint 1867 hotel that has been modernized for today's visitors. It was a lovely stay very close to the activity that we did in the area, Sonoma Canopy Tours (zip lining). The room was just the right size for my husband and I. I love that the decore was old time. The sitting room downstairs had comfortable... More

It is a small but charming old hotel that has been updated but within keeping of it's 1890's character. Clean, and peaceful (mid-week anyway), except for the road crew who started early, restripping the highway, and parked their generator/pump truck right out front. =( There are no TV's and wifi was iffy. No breakfast (except perhaps weekends); although the cafe... More

Things I like to know when planning a place to stay: What time is check in? Anytime after 3. Can you drink the water? Not recommended so they give you a carafe in your room to fill at the filtered water cooler right outside your room. There's also a Kurig there with a good selection of coffee and sugars to... More

Very charming hotel. We stayed over night midweek so all was class except the rooms. Not to worry, wine, cheese, snacks are available across the street. Sat around patio and had a great snack dinner with other guests. Word of warning, there is no elevator. Expect to haul bags up the stairs.

We stayed here on our drive up the coast line. The tiny town was so peaceful. The hotel staff is very friendly. The room was quaint. If you are looking for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle, this is it. We walked across the street for breakfast. It was a nice night.

Starting from Monterey, we drove north, hoping to get somewhere north of SFO on the coast by nightfall. Alas, traffic in San Francisco, and a side trip to the top of Mt. Tamalpais (highly recommended) put that plan to bed. Thank goodness for this hotel - it was exactly where we needed it to be! It's an old building which... More

After a day of serious hiking through the beautiful Pt. Reyes National Seashore, we headed for Valley Ford Hotel, having made reservations for a room several months in advance. The check-in process was not a smiling face behind a polished marble countertop, but an envelope left on the front porch bench with our name artistically scribed in perfect calligraphy. Our... More
