“Nice find!”
Reviewed July 5, 2006

After reading the reviews here, we decided to book at the Sonoma Creek Inn. It is, indeed, a nice (and reasonable) find in the Sonoma area.

Our room was clean and nicely decorated. It is a motel set-up but has some charming features that make it welcoming (like the great power shower!). It was very quiet (particularly since we came on a Nascar weekend and all the rooms were booked). Location is only a 5 minute or so drive into Sonoma and is certainly not as bad of an area as people have said in some of these reviews.

Definitely a step-up from your basic motel chain.

Had another great stay at "the Inn" ~ my 3rd multi-nite stay this crush season! Great value alternative: rooms well-appointed, clean and craftmen style with high ceilings that appear newly reno'd, friendly staff, comp wireless internet access which was great for business (though signal inconsistent), and the best "real" Mex food in the wine country at La Hacienda only a block away. Purpose of my stays have been business travel for which the SC Inn was a great hospitable respite and central location for Napa and Sonoma wine travel. I highly recommend for business stays in the area or for casual wine travellers looking to experience locally run inns with quaint character and caring proprietors. Don't let the slightly suspect neighbourhood fool you. This is a great find beyond its bargain value. In fairness also note: (i) not necessarily the place for those desperate for a $$$$ romantic romp (then blow your wad up in Healdsburg); (ii) the heater/AC can be a bit noisy; and (iii) the Boyes Blvd traffic noise can creep up on the patio at times in daytime ~ but when you are in wine country who in their rightmind would sit in the hotel room - unless you are working like me ;(. Hope some of you value my insight and try this place. I'll return if nothing else b/c all the staff were so nice. Ask Shana for directions to the beautiful backroad drive through Glen Ellen!

We stayed at the Sonoma Creek Inn the week before Christmas 2005 on a rainy night in a patio room facing the two-lane street. This is the nicest most charming place we have stayed on this trip. We will stay here next time we come to Sonoma.

Things We Loved:
* Rebuilt from ground up in 2001 with "new house" feel
* Beautiful interior design & mosaic tile work
* Marble walkways
* Restful fountain in our walled patio with furniture
* Big 27" screen TV with all the basic cable channels
* Big tub/shower combo for long soaks
* Quiet fridge under long bathroom sink counter
* Soft comfortable bed
* Quite wall heater with wall mounted control
* Helpful friendly woman at the office
* The Best "Simply Burger" at the Creekside Cafe
* A short drive to the Sonoma Market Deli & Square
* Opening glass patio door and windows to our patio
* All phone and emails were clear and professional

Improvements Needed:
* Manager said she would replace old green stained shower heads that did not match the 100% new look of the entire place
* All patio rooms face the street and some of the traffic noise gets over the 6-foot tall solid wall until it dies down in early evening
* The yellow city streetlight poured in over the wall so we just closed the Venetian blinds a bit for a great night light effect
* Buy a microwave for the long bathroom counter

My mother and I spent two wonderful nights at the Sonoma Creek Inn. They graciously provided a twin size rollaway when we checked in and realized that the room only had one queen bed. The front desk gave us wine tasting coupons and suggested restaurants and arranged dinner reservations. We were delighted with our patio room, the decor is bright and cheery, the bathroom was sparkling clean, spacious and probably the best lit I've ever come across in a hotel. I highly recommend the Sonoma Creek Inn for it's charm, service and affordability.

This hotel was so noisy and not comfortable. The noise from the street cars is bad (very loud). The noise that came from the heater alone will keep you up all night. It's a very loud old heater. And when it stops it really wakes you up. I didn't sleep all night. The bed was very uncomfortable. If your partner moves the slightest you really feel it. Black Mold inside the toilet. It appears to be clean until I took a bath and looked up into it from the tub. Yuk!!!! I am sorry to say I do not recommend this hotel unless you don't mind the noise and you can sleep on most anything. Couples interested in having a romantic getaway. Spend a little more. That's what a vacation is all about. Make sure you ask the hotel if the room is facing the street.
If they say yes then don't ever take a room like that unless it is in the sticks and there are no cars.

, Director of Marketing at Sonoma Creek Inn, responded to this review, December 29, 2005
I was shocked to read this review regarding this guests stay at the Sonoma Creek Inn. Unfortunately, the guests never notified the innkeeper about their experience at the Sonoma Creek Inn and once we saw this on tripadvisor.com we attempted to contact the guest via email but have never heard back from them. In contacting the guest, it was our hope to make the situation up to them. Unfortunately, we were not given this opportunity.

We take this guests comments very seriously and immediately had our maintenance department look at the heater and our housekeeping review the bathroom. All problems in the guestroom have been corrected.

Please know that Sonoma Creek Inn is indeed best for a traveler seeking a welcoming place in wine country without the wine country prices. In no way do we refer or want to convey that the inn is a romantic getaway and we are so very sorry that the guest had this impression. The Sonoma Creek Inn is truly a wonderful option for anyone looking to go to Wine Country but not spend a fortune on a hotel.

It sounds as though the guests were looking for more of a three-diamond or four-diamond hotel for their stay which there are plenty of options in Sonoma. We pride ourselves on being a great alternative to these pricey accommodations in town and being able to offer charming rooms at the same time!

Again, we are so sorry that Sonoma Creek Inn did not meet this guests expectations.

Although not directly in Sonoma, the Inn is located in Boyes Hot Springs which is only 2 miles north. We loved Sonoma Creek Inn - our room was decorated just like on the website, and it had a cute little private patio with a fountain. Also, next door is a wonderful breakfast and lunch place - the meals are original and tasty. We enjoyed our stay, and you will too!

Maybe a little noisy, but the decorating is so charming.
A great bargain among all the pricey wine country accommodations.
