“Front desk staff leaves a lot to be desired!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2011

After traveling 23 hours the day before & arriving on Santa Rosa at 12:30 pm, we just wanted to dump our luggage & freshen up before a 2pm b-day party, we hoped for some empathy. Yet when I went to check in, the first words out of the clerk's mouth wasn't welcome to put hotel but "check-in is not til 3pm". I understood that but as there were only 3 cars on the parking lot, we said we'd take anything. She said to come back in an hour which I did. Found another couple waiting there, they'd rang the bell 3 times @ finally chose to go elsewhere after waiting 15 minutes with no response! We got our room at 1:50, making us late to our party. And the value club card says "free room upgrade" - HA! We got the smallest room/bed they had but at least we got a room before 3pm. To the management, your front desk person makes the 1st impression. Wrong person to have there! Also, they advertise an expanded breakfast & the office was locked at 7:25 on Sunday morning. Couldn't even get coffee! Trip Advisor has always helped us in our travels - skip this hotel, pay a little extra & stay at the Extended Stay across the freeway. We stayed there on our last visit to Santa Rosa & they were great.

The room reeked of cigarette smoke, even though was in a non smoking room. People smoking pot right outside. Outside entrance . TV didn't work. Had to pay for coffee at the "free" continental breakfast ! Only had cold cereal at breakfast . Will not stay here again .

We liked this place enough to stay there twice on the same trip. we were touring central California between Santa Rosa and Santa Barbara. This was the best deal of the whole trip. has everything the pricier places have except for a hot tub. I even used the unheated, seasonal pool to dunk my hot, tired feet after dancing. sat on the edge and cooled them under the stars. They even had an ironing board. Two Queens for $79 at the end of October. When it came time to come back through Santa Rosa on the way back, we stayed there another night. Comfortable beds. 4 big towels. Walls must be good because I didn't even hear the engines of early risers in the morning. Big screened window you can actually open. Good darkening curtains. Get room 216, or was it 116? on the first floor, at the end near the pool in late Fall, Winter, early Spring because no one goes to the pool anyway. Nearby are Carrows restaurant, Trader Joes and a dollar store. not far from 2 Malls and downtown shops. The Luther Burbank house/gardens with a docent tour was actually very interesting. Dancing at the Flamingo Hotel. The California Old Faithful Geyser in Calistoga is one of only three like it and more faithful than the more famous one in Yellowstone Park.

Room Tip: Stay in the end room near the pool in Spring, Winter, Fall

Close to freeway. 15% off if you get hotel card (at least bring photocopy of email if you don't get card in time). Allow dogs, but no sign of dogs having been there - good clean up. MW, frig, TV, internet, nice people run the place, kept it clean.
No amenities like spa, workout space, pool. Bare-bones, but I came here knowing that. Suits me fine.
Breakfast only from 7:30-9:30 so I missed before work, and just generic wrapped Danish roll.
Served by purposes, safe, clean and close. I stay here everytime work takes me to Santa Rosa!

If you want a place to just get some rest and get back on the road, this place is fine. The hotel is basic, but clean and in a good location. I wouldn't use it for a vacation.

We stayed for 2 nights with our young children, and it was nasty. The curtain had what looked like blood staines on them, and so did the box spring matress. I was a little scared. The bathroom was nice, but that was about it. I wanted to have a cup of coffee but there was no coffee just sugar. we stayed upstairs and the walkway was made of wood and was falling in. On the second night we saw a cockroach above the doorway in our room. I have never seen one before, so needless to say I wasn't taking it too well. I feel bad giving bad reviews we are not wealthy people and we cant afford to stay at the 5 star places, but this was bad. I think they should try renovating the rooms. i would not recommend taking your kids to stay there. Mine were terrified.
