“A great, affordable find”
Reviewed July 20, 2011

When we decided, at the last minute, to book a motel room in Sonoma, we stumbled upon the Sonoma Creek Inn. Considering the price (though located near the center of the town), we were not expecting a great place but we were pleasantly surprised. Yes, the beds are not top quality but as the one negative reviewer said, he understands the "get what you pay for." Having said that, this was not like a bunk on a navy ship or something. It is lumpy and a bit soft but it was not horrible. We slept fine. The people working there was very nice and helpful. The room and the surrounding environs were clean. The decor was fantastic and a little funky. This remodeled old hotel is a wonderful stay and a welcome break from the standardized large hotel chains.

Stayed February 2011, traveled with family

We were in Sonoma visiting friends, and selected at the Sonoma Creek Inn because of the location. It was a comfortable enough place to stay, but the customer service was amazing. They were kind and gracious when we checked in, offerring a free room upgrade and wine tour coupons, but the best part was after we had left. They called us when we were about an hour up the road, letting us know they had found our pillows which we left in the room. I was dismayed but didn't want to backtrack an hour, my husband said I guess they give them to the GoodWill or toss them - and when I told the Sonoma Creek Inn employee that, they offered to take them to UPS and send them to us. They had our credit card number to pay for the shipping (cheaper than buying new pillows!) and our home address, and didn't charge a penny for the extra service. Wow. We are impressed, and will definitely stay there again. (I wouldn't bother with paying extra for a courtyard room - as other reviewers have said, the courtyards are pretty tiny.)

We stayed at the SCI based off of the high TripAdvisor rating. It was our first time in Sonoma(we usually tour Napa) and thought we were going to be in the middle of the action. While we weren't that far away from Old Town, it felt like we were really removed. The property is a refurbished motel with cute, but pretty basic, rooms. The staff is cordial, but not very knowledgable about the local wineries. Noting that there are almost too many to be truly proficient, I assisted a fellow guest with their tour of Napa. The beds are not comfortable and the road noise can make a good night's rest a challenge. The adjacent restaurant, the Creekside Cafe, was absolutely wonderful! We would most likey stay elsewhere when we visit again, but appreciate the effort.

When I called for the reservation, the person that I spoke to was very kind.

She did not boast about the Sonoma Creek Inn and she should have!

It was really a lovely place to stay and one of the high points of our vacation out west. The rooms were very clean. The ambiance very charming. The price, very modest compared to the value of a sound night's rest in a clean, quiet, cool room.

I definitely recommend the Sonoma Creek Inn. April Gill Jacksonville, Fl.

Everything about Sonoma Creek Inn feels good, especially the incredible value!...the room size was just right, the bed was comfortable, the decor fun and comforting, the overall vibe was positive with a staff that wants to help you in anyway they can...Sonoma Creek Inn is just off of the main "strip" in Sonoma Valley which is perfect if you want to be close to the main drag yet want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the more trafficked streets for a relaxing sleep and private stay.

Room Tip: I used Expedia to book the room!

This was our second stay at Sonoma Creek Inn. The rooms are small, but comfortable and quaint - everything is clean and feels fresh. We continue to stay here b/c its one of the best deals in the wine country. You're only 5 minutes from Sonoma's downtown square. Get a room with a patio if you can. Also, the inn backs up to the Creekside Cafe, which has amazing breakfasts!

Number one complaint for us was the beds. Very uncomfortable and cheap. Rooms are clean and decorated in a boutique style.Patios very small and adjacent to street so lots of car noise. Management is friendly. Very good cafe next door for breakfast and lunch. Opens at 7:30am - 2:00pm. Parking is a challenge. Motel is dog friendly, but no place to walk or run your dog. Have to drive a few miles to dog park which is $6.00 per day.

Room Tip: All rooms the same. AAA, AARP discounts
