Stayed at the Lodge at Sonoma on Saturday, Feb. 18 as part of a bachelorette weekend. When we got there, the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful, and the concierge gave us great advice, coupons, and made dinner reservations for us. We stayed in one of the cottage rooms, which was great for 4 people. We had a sitting area and fireplace, where we spent a few hours relaxing and sipping wine before dinner. The room was beautiful and very clean--no complaints. We took advantage of the The Cellar (the hotel's tasting room), and had a great time wine tasting with other guests.

Contrary to some reviews on this site, I did not find this to be a glorified motel--it is understated and simple, yes, but that is the spirit of Sonoma. A high rise resort just wouldn't fit in. Our room was nothing like a motel, it was much more high end.

We all loved it and would definitely stay here again! A great option for a girls' weekend or a romantic getaway.

We stayed at this hotel for two nights Feb 17-19. We absolutely loved our cottage room which looked out to the pool area. The bed had a feather bed topper and very nice linens. The bathtub was a deep soaking tub which looked into the living room/fireplace/tv area through shutters that could open in the bathroom. So nice at the end of a long site seeing day! There was a separate shower with a large rain style shower head which was great. Very nice bath products. The fireplace was so romantic especially during the cold spell the weekend we were there.
Great location near the square and convenient to the wineries. We did not use any of the facilities or restaurant as we toured both days and returned just for bedtime. Would love to stay here again. One of our favorite hotel rooms ever.

Stayed for one night 15 Feb 06, and really enjoyed our stay. Everyone on the staff seems sincerely glad that you're there. The room w/king bed and pullout sofa bed was large and clean, and very nicely appointed. We had a 2 year old and a 7 month old with us, and the staff was accomodating and helpful with bags, turning the sofa into a bed at night, extra pillows, towels and blankets, and so on.

It was very cold that day, but the room was perfectly warm with digital/modern climate controls and super fireplace. Rooms are very well insulated and we heard no noise from other rooms or the nearby street.

The bath is large and came with plush robes and bath salts. Note: Rooms with king beds have a shuttered window between the bath and bedroom areas that really opens up the space. Rooms with two double beds do not have that neat feature.

A great place to stay. The shuttle runs back and forth to Sonoma center very regularly (5 mins away). Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful hotel with well appointed rooms. We stayed in the main hotel on the first floor and it was very quiet in the off season. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. We received a very good rate on Priceline but this was never mentioned by the staff who did their best to accomodate our request for a room with close by parking. The beds were very comfortable. It is not within walking distance to downtown Sonoma and other than the on-site restaurant not within walking distance to any other restaurant, either sit-down or fast food. A Pizza place recommened by the staff across the street had apparently recently closed. There is no continental breakfast which would have been nice. We would stay there again, at Priceline prices but probably not at the full rate on the hotel website.

My husband and I stayed at the Lodge at Sonoma for the first time this past October. The purpose of our trip was to relax and reconnect with some old friends on the West Coast. My husband is paraplegic with limited upper body strength, so finding a TRULY accessible hotel is a challenge. We found this one on a northern California access websire which actually gives room and bathroom layouts and dimensions, so we decided to take a chance with it sight unseen. We were delighted with what we found!

We stayed in a cottage, which I would recommend. I'm not sure what the architectural variations are in the cottages, but we had a ground-floor one and we, too, had a vaulted ceiling. The room was spacious, with a comfortable sitting area in front of the fire and a pretty, small terrace through one set of French doors. The entrance was off the parking lot-power station area that someone warned about, and ideally I'd want one directly off the courtyard, but the room is designed so that there is only one small window that overlooks the parking lot - the French doors overlook the terrace and rose garden. On the terrace we simply sat with our backs to the parking lot and looked over the roses to the courtyard. The parking lot window has a shutter, and we were not bothered by either noise or light. The bathroom is on the small side and not what I'd call luxurious, but the space was more than adequate for our specialized needs, and unobstructed.

Another word about cottage location: there are other cottages, I noticed, for which the heating and air-conditioning equipment seems to be practically on the terrace. Avoid one of those.

We ate 3 meals in the restaurant (2 breakfasts and one dinner) and 1 in the bar (a lunch). They were consistently excellent - the dishes were imaginative and the ingredients very, very fresh. The carafe of coffee at breakfast table was to die for - I'm surprised we ever slept.

We found the staff to be attentive, friendly, and quick to meet our needs, no matter what or where they were.

We didn't use the spa, but we checked it out. There is an attractive, walled garden area with hot pools and quiet lounging spots that you can use for the day if you make a $25 purchase in the gift shop (not hard - try some of the lavender-geranium bath salts), even if you don't choose to have a spa treatment.

I'd say that in the Lodge at Sonoma, room location is everything. There is a block rooms that are right on the highway - probably not a good choice. We are planning another visit next year.
