“Fabulous stay, friendly vibe.”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

My husband and I stayed at boon for a little baby moon weekend getaway. We brought our dog and were made to feel so welcome. Staying at Boon felt like staying at a friend's because the pool was such a "hangout spot" complete with a help yourself honor bar and great tree and garden views. We loved it, the service and pool were highlights. I only wish they had a poolside wine and cheese happy hour to go along with the great evening pool lounging and drinking.

Pros
+ very clean
+ very friendly and helpful staff
+ thoughtful in-room amenities like wine corks, board for cheese and crackers, etc
+ comfortable bed & cute decor
+ very reasonable in-room bar prices, cute honor bar at pool
+ nice pool area
+ free breakfast included
+ nice bath products
Considerations
- No AC. Probably not an issue on most weekends, but it sort of felt like for $250/night there should be AC.
- There was no couch or coffee table in the room. Would be nice to have a place to put things/sit and relax. Other decor of the room was nice and fashionable.
- deck in the front of the room is shared. They have grown bushes to try and shield you from foot traffic of other guests, but it is still a small motel so fairly close together. Not a bad thing - just depends on what you are looking for. Noise from other guests was not a problem at all, and the place still had a quiet, relaxing feel.

It's a long walk to town and I wouldn't want to do it in the dark. But the benefit of this is that you are out of the fray. Close to the road but this didn't bother us (and we're pretty sensitive) - not much traffic at night.

Overall pleasant stay. We were here for a wedding so we didn't spend a ton of time in the room/at the resort, and it was just what we needed.

Stayed one night there recently and really like the setting and the set up of the hotel.......the place is clean and has a modern style. The pool area and rooms seem well designed and simple.... I was able to get one night by calling when the online reservations would only allow a 2 night min.
We checked in late (after 6pm) and the reservation area is closed but they called us and the key was in our room. The room was #13 and was closest to the road where you would hear road noise .... the bet was comfortable and the room had a small modern fireplace which was a nice addition.

There was a nice "honor" bar near the pool which had great priced drinks such as beer wine sodas.....Nice pool with lounge chairs and a small hot-tub....... The place is really nice and I would recommend.

Pro: Clean and modern design friendly staff on the phone. Comfortable room with fireplace

Cons: a long walk from town (the do have bikes) and our unit one could hear the road noise in the morning.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the road and or parking area ..... one facing the pool would be nice ....

We brought our two dogs with us to the hotel. The room had dog bowls and treats. The room we stayed in had an outdoor area which was great. The could stay outside and play. The area had small rocks and was very secure. The hotel also has three areas which the dogs could play.

The room had hot water issues and the manager moved us to another room which was very nice! They serviced us breakfast each morning which was yummy. The manager of the hotel was outstanding! He was on top of everything! They lite candles each night around the hotel, many pool towels and a bar with alot to choose from.

Next time were in the area we will be back! Thank you to the hotel for mailing us our dog ID tag which feel off during the stay! Thanks again!

My partner and I just spent a truly lovely weekend at Boon and recommend it highly. A great oasis of simple design and nice touches (such as candles in lanterns throughout the property at night). Tom, who manages the place during the day, was extremely helpful with tips on wineries to visit and checked in a few times to ensure we had everything we needed. The breakfast brought to your room in the morning is a great luxury. Yes, the food is simple, but it's good and the coffee rocks. We also ate both nights at Boon's restaurant in town and once at their market (Big Bottom Market) and were equally impressed with both. Will return as soon as we can!

Room Tip: We found room 9 to be a good one - about mid-way down the property with a nice deck in front, good v...

When I first walked into our room, I was disappointed. Ratty looking carpet, bad tile job, ikea stuff scattered throughout. However, as the ambiance of the place sunk in, I fell in love with the cool vibe and particular vision of the place. First off, for those who hate eating breakfast with strangers, this is the bed and breakfast for you. In cooler months, the tray with french press coffee and a light continental breakfast is delivered to your room. Ingredients are excellent (eg. delicious yogurt, fresh berries, boiled farm egg), but there are no "choices", so if you are particular, this may not work for you. The stoves (firelog only) are fantastic at night and in the morning. The outdoor area is a blend of whites, blues and weathered wood, with the occasional injection of the places' trademark orange. The saline pool is FREEZING like a plunge pool (we were there late October). However, sitting out in the saline hot tub under palm trees and redwoods is emblazoned in my mind as one of those lovely vacation moments. Also, the place is practically in walking distance of an amazing redwood forest, which just adds to the magic. Staff are friendly, but not on-site all the time (you can call them if need be), so don't expect hand-holding, concierge service etc. This place is almost a whole different model of running a hotel, so if you're up for that, I think you'll love it. I can't wait to go back.

The Boon was over priced, the room was too small and out dated, but breakfast was good. The room was clean however, but TV was sooo tiny that it was hard to watch. If you are looking for luxury steer clear.
