“Good place to relax in gracious surroundings”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

We've stayed here several times in the rooms with private deck outside the main house. The view from the deck is wonderful. Heat is from a thermostat-controlled fireplace. The room decors are all themed and fun. It's very quiet and gracious - bathrobes, wine in the room, jetted oversized bath. The chef who cooks breakfast is wonderful. Coffee is available at 7am for those who need to wake up early. We stay here on business trips and it is very nice to decompress here after a tough day. Jerry and Tina, the innkeepers were born to do this. They are wonderful hosts. We will continue to stay here when in Occidental.

Room Tip: Check with the innkeepers if you aren't comfortable climbing a lot of stairs with your bags. So...

The Inn at Occidental is a hidden gem. Very lovely B&B and close to the ocean as well as the wine country. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: We stayed in the cottage. Spacious and rooms decorated in very unique styles. Excellent condition...

We drove through the most beautiful county to arrive in a lovely 2 block town were everyone knows everyone. The room was delightful, food wonderful and the owners were extreamly helpful. We tasted wine, ate like royalty, walked in the Redwoods and lunched at the ocean. It was all wonderful we will be back.

I've been meaning to write this for ages - since we've stayed twice at the Inn. I've been putting it off because I wonder if I will do it justice. Firstly Occidental is a quirky little places with a couple of lovely places to eat and gift stores. The places nestles in the countryside and is a lovely base for surrounding the local countryside or nearby vineyards or spas. I love the inn because the rooms are beautifully decorated, complete with everything you need - ours had an amazing shower, even a music cd player, logs to burn in the stove. The hosts - Jerry and Tina are very warm and offer good advice without being intrusive. There's now free wi-fi in the hotel too. A free wine reception completes things - oh and the breakfasts are to die for! We'll be back...

This was our first trip to Sonoma and wine country and we wanted to make it special. Part of this was finding just the right place to stay on our trip. And we found it at the Inn at Occidental. Jerry, Tina, Marilyn, Victoria and jodie all made us feel right at home. Comfortable, quiet and one of the most beautiful settings we have experienced in our travels.

If you're going to Sonoma, you should definitely spend a night (or more) here. You will be glad you did.

My husband and I stayed here with a cycling group for one night of our tour. The town is tiny but lovely. The Inn is a delightful jumble of main house and building joined by walkways. We stayed in the Wine Country room which was lovely and spacious. The big jetted tub was just what we needed after our day of cycling. We enjoyed the wine and cheese before setting off for dinner. The hosts were very attentive. Breakfast was okay. The frittata served was quite a tiny serving and not super tasty but there were a number of other items at the buffet that were good and my appetite was satisfied. A lovely little place off the beaten track.

Delightful inn, with charming rooms and a lot of comfort. The decor focuses on American folk art, filled with some amazing, beautiful and quirky pieces. Breakfasts were terrific; my only suggestion on that front is that an option for those of us trying to eat a little less would be nice. On the other hand, everything was so delicious and well prepared, it was totally worth it. The wine and cheese in the evening was nice and the innkeepers could not have been more gracious and helpful. Their restaurant recommendations were awesome. Will definitely send friends and relatives and, I hope, ourselves!
