After tons of research on wine country, I settled on El Pueblo Inn. It sits about a mile from the main plaza in Sonoma which might seem off putting, but a quick drive to the free parking in town is a breeze. As others have said, when you drive up, you might be unimpressed, but that first impression is misleading. We had a quick check-in, were directed to a nearby room which was very spacious, with a full sized sofa, and a recliner (when did you last get that in a room?). The room opened up to a patio fronting a tropical garden. The room was very comfortable with a spacious bathroom. A quick walk led to the pool and hot tub area. Free pool towels are available at the front desk, along with an endless supply of chocolate candy! The continental breakfast was very satisfying with pastries, quiche, fruit, cereal, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea and juice. The price was very cheap by wine country standards, and we are really glad we stayed I Sonoma instead of the town of Napa. (If you go to the town, you will see what I mean.) I highly recommend this place. It is not a luxury resort if that's what you seek, but it is a fantastic value.
