We spent a night here earlier in August, 2012, with a grandchild, having things to see and do in the Santa Rosa Area (Charles Schulz Museum, Safari West - see those reviews). The room had two queen-size (or was it king-size?) beds, anyway, quite adequate. It was clean and even had a small refrigerator. The beds were separated by a nightstand and each bed also had a nightstand on its "outer" side. That was a nice touch. We slept well. Only negative was that the main room ceiling lights, illumination reaching the bed area, was (as far as I know) controllable only by a switch near the room door going out. (I think there may have been one or two lamps on bed nightstands - don't remember for sure.) It would be nice if ceiling lights could also be controlled at the bedside, a plus if you're in bed. Though the Inn location was not far from highway 101, there was a wall beyond some landscaping outside our room window (probably extending across the outside of other rooms), that blocked any freeway noise, We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel's Equus restaurant (separate review).

We stayed here for three nights using Living Social vouchers for a junior suite. We knew this, and you should, too - the location is excellent for visiting wineries and other towns like Sonoma and Healdsburg, but the hotel itself is not located in a "cute" area. This was in no way a problem, but just fyi - it's located in kind of an office park type setting, right near the 101.

It is the staff that makes this place. Before we even arrived I had several super positive interactions with the staff, from calling to ask some questions about the Living Social deal (they were notably welcoming of us taking advantage of this deal) to phone and email conversations with Justin, the hotel manager, regarding arranging a wine tour and asking about where we could do our laundry from the first part of our trip. To a person, everyone was enthusiastic to be of service, and had a very casual, friendly demeanor. We did have some confusion figuring out where our room was upon check-in, and it turned out to be in a different building and we needed to drive behind it to avoid lugging suitcases up stairs - the front desk person tried to explain this, but it would have been helpful to pull out a little property map and mark where we should be headed.

The physical elements of this hotel are its weakest attributes. Some of the upholstery in both the lobby and our suite was a bit worn. Although clearly cleaned every day, our suite had some dark stains on the carpet. It was very hot in Santa Rosa while we were there, and the air conditioner worked but only blew cold air towards the bedroom and there wasn't any coolness to the living room area of the suite, so although we had a junior suite, we basically couldn't use the living room area because it was too hot. The chocolate brown and rust color scheme permeated the hotel, all the way down to the shower curtain, which served to block out the light in the bathroom so you kind of shower in the dark - I'd rather be able to see my bottle of shampoo than be so concerned about the colors. We also had some problems with the WiFi.

The Equus restaurant on the property is worth visiting - we had a surprisingly delicious dinner there our first night. I mentioned how the staff was welcoming of the Living Social vouchers - the hotel was very organized about them, down to sending us an email before our arrival explaining what was included in the package - a very nice touch! They also had printed breakfast vouchers and restaurant credits for us to easily redeem as part of our deal, so there was no awkwardness in making sure to receive what we had bought.

In spite of the physical plant issues, we would go back because of the staff and the location, hoping they attend to some of these fixable issues.

If you need a central location to visit many wine country locations, I found that Fountaingrove Inn to be a good choice. My trip was geared towards exploring the vineyards and wineries . Alexander Valley in Healdsburg (about a 20 minute drive or less) was a pleasant surprise of outstanding vineyards and an off the beaten track scenic drive. This is definitely the time to lease that convertible! Most great destinations; Napa, Russian River, Sonoma Valley, and Bodaga Bay are all within a 45 minute drive. I had a Jr Suite in the main building on the 2nd floor; corner unit with lots of windows and tree views. If you can, try to get a Jr. suite in the main building on the 2nd level because you will be able to easily transport all luggage from the parking area to your room without going up and down half flights of stairs - there are no elevators! In keeping with Frank Lloyd Wright's architectural signature style , this multi level designed Inn is easily navigable if you don't mind a few steps here and there. The suite was one large room, nicely decorated with a very comfy bed, clean, and quiet. The bathroom was fine - I liked the lighted magnifying mirror. If you need to have access to a grocery market, Safeway is a short drive away. I didn't spend a lot of time at the Inn, but the time there needed to really rest and relax fully from a busy day was greatly appreciated. The staff was very helpful and friendly.

I was visiting Santa Rosa to surprise my sister for her birthday and see my nephew perform in Santa Rosa Junior College Summer Repertory Theater's production of "The Mousetrap." (It was awesome.) The staff was extremely helpful in assisting me to make my sister's birthday surprise memorable. The bellman even helped me decorate her room prior to her arrival. The delux King rooms were large, (325 square ft), clean, very well appointed and a bargain at the AAA rate of $125.10/night. They are equipped with a small refrigerator conveniently tucked in the closet, a complete coffee set up, tons of counter space both in the bathroom and the bedroom, and free wireless internet. This is a beautifully decorated small boutique hotel with a courteous, competent and classy staff. I will definitely return to this lovely property.

Although we were expecting more of a resort with spa facilities (which they don't have), the Jr Suite was a perfect hotel to get a good night's rest in the quiet rooms. The Jr Suites are small for such a designation, and if the prices are as good as we were able to get for three nights, go for this type of room for a little more space. Bathroom is tiny but adequate. Room is clean, firm beds, no view.

The pool area which includes a lap pool and whirlpool were perfect for our weary bones after biking for two days further north.

Restaurants in town are many, but if you are looking for a little more atmosphere, head up to Healdsburg for a wonderful afternoon of shopping and great dining.

In Santa Rosa, Nonni's was great for Italian Food. Petite Syrah disappointing and much more expensive.
