“Affordable Sonoma”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

A lovely motel with a great diner attached in a residential area. We had courtyard rooms which were large with a good sized bathroom. These are located next to the parking lot but seem to be well insulated. The only outside noise we heard was talking when people entered/exited the car. They provide a small refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. Beds were comfortable. The only drawback would be for light sleepers--the wall heater can produce intermittent noise. The room was <$100--this can't be beat.

There was a bed, but no breakfast. We went to the square for that.

The motel is near enough to the square, and we were able to book a single night on a holiday weekend. The place was clean, but needs some renovation. We used the heater which loudly clicked on and off all night which made sleep rough. The place also backs up onto a road that gets a lot of traffic early in the morning, possibly from people working at the Fairmont nearby. The traffic was quite noisy and made sleeping difficult.

The staff at check-in took care of getting us checked in, but weren't exactly friendly. The check-out staff was more attentive and said they would take my comment about the heater to the owner.

Really nicely decorated but not a very comfortable bed. Prefer sink to be outside of bathroom so we can both get ready at the same time. Excellent restaurant around the corner. A bit out of the way but I chose the less expensive rate over being closer. If a light sleeper, definitely get an inside room.

Room Tip: Definitely pick an inside room if you are a light sleeper.

Loved this place. Stayed here for two nights by myself to just relax, meditate, downshift - a mini retreat. Stayed two nights midweek in winter and it was peaceful, quiet, and very comfortable. Private patio was cute and included a fountain which was a nice touch. Bit of road noise(residential street) but I kind of found that comforting (not too isolated). I loved the room decor - very charming, almost country 1930s feel with bits of art deco and art nouveau mixed in. Spacious bathroom, felt updated (but old-fashioned and cottagey), all necessary modern amenties for my simple needs. Cat does come by to visit which I loved (don't let him in the room for folks that have allergies, though). He was not a problem but a plus for me. Restaurant next door was tasty and reasonable, good service. I'm very happy with my stay in every way. Will definitely recommend and return.

Room Tip: I stayed in a private patio room which I liked as I wanted a little outdoor access - it was great fo...

Nice cozy clean friendly and quirky property, more of an old motor lodge than B&B with ample parking. Staff is friendly, helpful and efficient and more than willing to share their knowledge of the local area. Rooms have been recently renovated with period art work. Our ground floor room had a comfortable bed; large bathrooms with small fridge, and came with small private patio. Room was fairly quiet despite being next to a busy road slightly masked by aging AC/heating system that works but is a bit on noisy side. Well situated near downtown Sonoma but in a nice suburban setting, making for a great place to explore the Sonoma area from. Beware - there is a neighborhood cat that will attempt to sneak into your room (there are warning posters in room.) The little diner around the corner is a gem with great breakfasts!

Room Tip: Ask for room with patio or porch

Stayed here for our 5th anniversary at the beginning of November. Nice, clean motel, NOT a bed and breakfast (the word "inn" does not mean B & B). The attached restaurant is great for breakfast at a reasonable price. Few frills, but you aren't paying for frills. The owner was friendly and helped out with tasting coupons, wine glasses (plastic, but serviceable), a corkscrew (which we somehow forgot to bring) and maps. Huge bathroom with a nice size fridge, perfect for chilling wine or the 2 gallon size spring water bottle we bought. The porch did lead onto a busy road and the heater was a bit loud, but you still felt like it was private. On a convenience level, only 10 minutes to downtown Sonoma where there is a host of tasting rooms and restaurants to check out. I'd highly recommend using this as your home base on a trip to Sonoma, and plan on using it again on our next trip out.

Nice little hotel in Sonoma, manager was very kind and helpful! Rooms are smaller but clean and have everything you need (ours even had a nice little patio in the back). Bathroom was huge! Parking only steps from door to room which was nice. We wanted to get away from the big resorts and hotels for a night and this was perfect...if you want to be fed with a silver spoon in wine country try another location, but if you are a fan of great value and cozy friendly atmospheres then this is the place! Highly recommended.
