5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

Traveling alone, I stayed 2 nights while exploring Healdsburg and surrounding area (hiking, mainly). Very friendly owners/managers. Homemade scones (!) with excellent coffee and OJ to take back to your room every morning. Quiet rooms even though pretty close to 101. Beds and pillows were first class. Would defintitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Room #18 is near the hot tub room.

Our family of four loved our 2 night stay at this motel - in a perfect location when exploring all the wonderful areas of Sonoma County. The rooms were clean & compact. The amazing service, price, location (5 min walk to Town) & motel grounds really impressed us. Wanda, her Mum & Zeus (the dog) are so friendly - Wanda gave us great tips on places to visit. Our kids got to toast marshmallows, pick apples & swim in the indoor pool - they had a fantastic time. A special part of our 4 week holiday that we will never forget!

We had fresh-cut herbs in our room and personal connection with the owner at a visit in their lovely courtyard. The mixed berry scones for breakfast were the best we've ever had. The location is perfect for overnight or an extended stay. When I asked where to get a fresh orange, the owners took us out back and picked oranges from their tree. Maybe it's more like visiting a member of the family. What a great experience!

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at the L & M. Wanda and Kim are lovely hosts and give good advice about local restaurants and wineries. The rooms are basic but have comfortable beds and are extremely clean. We liked the quirky, retro touches that make this family run place stand out from the boring chain motels.
Having breakfast included makes it easy to get started early, and yes, the scones are yummy!
Our kids loved the indoor pool after being dragged around wineries for a few hours, and having hot showers at the pool made it easy to get them washed and dressed for the night to avoid having to get it done in the room. We recommend the L & M if you want a clean, comfortable room, a friendly welcome, and want to save some money to spend on local food and wine.

In three weeks in California this summer, the L&M Motel was where we received the warmest welcome - and we had many pleasant welcomes! Wanda could not have been nicer. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she was more than happy to chat, to make us feel at home and to give us advice on what to do in our all too short one day and night in Healdsburg.

We stayed in more "up market" places but everything at the L&M was perfect from the very clean and delightful room with kitchen and bathroom to the beautifully laid out gardens and the colourful hanging baskets. There was so much thoughtfulness and attention to detail from the layout of the surroundings to the utensils provided in the kitchen. We were just sorry that we couldn't stay longer.

So many folks mention the breakfast scones that we were really looking forward to them - and, yes, they were superb!

If we are ever in this lovely part of California again (loved Healdsburg and the Sonoma Valley) we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

The location was perfect since it is only a 5 minute walk in to town. The outside decor is great. However, the room had wood floors that were not very clean and a clock-radio that would not turn off (until we just unplugged it).

We got up early for breakfast, but only were able to get some fruit and a cup of coffee since the scones were not out of the oven in time. However, everyone was very nice and attentive.

For the price, it is a great location and is overall satisfactory for Healdsburg.

This gem has roomy, comfortable rooms and awesome service! The host took the time to show us 3 different rooms to choose from, and even lent us swimsuits to use the indoor jacuzzi and pool after a long day's drive. The grounds are gorgeous with many tropical flowers and plants, and the breakfast was delicious. Would definitely stay here again.
