My friend and I stayed three nights at the Boonville Hotel during a tour of California wine country, and I wish we had stayed longer. The staff were friendly and helpful, evening letting us sample some local wines after hours. A light breakfast of yogurt, fresh fruit, homemade granola, and freshly baked scones was served each morning, and it was all delicious. The hotel is conveniently located in the center of town, with restaurants/shops all within a maximum of a two minute walk away.
If possible, make sure to book one of the rooms that are not located in the farmhouse part of the hotel. We stayed in one of the individual, cabin-style rooms, called the "Back Porch", which was divine. Our room was wonderful, with a private, partially enclosed patio. Comfortable bed, very quiet, and a really nice shower.
Now for the best part - the grounds. The property on which the hotel sits is GORGEOUS. I spent many hours lounging in the flower-covered gazebo, sipping wine and reading while hummingbirds buzzed around. Paradise.
