“Excellent stay, beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

The hotel was gorgeous; we found a deal for a cheap King size (huge and comfy bed) with a fireplace and we loved it. The staff was excellent and very helpful for suggestions about wineries and dinner. The breakfast was above average, and there was a fitness room (nothing special though). It was a great deal in a great location- an easy walk to the plaza (where all the shops and restaurants are), and an easy walk to a bike trail nearby. There is a Whole Foods right across the street, and a gas station on the corner. I highly recommend the hotel.

A good place, not too expensive, in town and excellent service. We were able to get am extra night as well. And, the breakfast was adequately provided. Easy parking,boarding passes can be printed, everything covered and nicely done.

Room Tip: Well heated and quiet.

Our 3-day, midweek stay in this hotel exceeded our expectations, and we highly recommend it for anyone traveleing to Sonoma, especially if you're traveling with a dog. The staff was extremely friendly, and had great recommendations for everything we asked about. The complimentary wine (and olive oil tasting) at Cline, and Jacuzzi wineries a short drive away were an added bonus. The property itself is very attractive and well maintained, with a pool and jacuzzi in the courtyard and seating area with fountain and fireplace. We upgraded our reservation, and stayed in a king suite w/ jacuzzi tub and fireplace (and 2 televisions). There's also a stereo/cd, with speakers throughout the suite. Our suite was located was on the second story of the Krug Event Center, at the back of the property. I don't know if I'd want to stay in the suite if there's an event going on, because of noise/privacy, but if nothing's going on, it's a great choice. The room was large, very comfortable, and suited our needs perfectly. The bed, and pillows, were a favorite, as was the large tub! The hotel is centrally located near the Square, and has everything you need within a very short walk. There are many wonderful restaurants in the area, but there's a large shopping center right across the street from the hotel with a Whole Foods market, so dining "in" is a great choice. The complimentary breakfast had a good selection of items, and coffee, tea and cocoa are always available in the lobby.

My fiance and I decided last minute to elope in Sonoma, California. I was looking for a hotel near the square that was not going to cost a fortune. The Best Western fit the bill price wise and I honestly was not expecting much. When I booked I mentioned in the comments section that it was our Honeymoon and if possible could we be upgraded. When we arrived along with friends of ours who also chose to stay there I found out we were given a very large suite- they were given a regular (which was also nice). The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly. The only negative was the fitness center is more of a closet with only a couple of pieces of equipment, however, there are running/bike paths near by...I only went to the fitness center because it was raining- and ended up running in the rain :). The breakfast is your typical hotel complimentary breakfast. Not a lot of healthy options. There was a waffle maker (which my husband loved). But it is free and there is a Whole Foods right across the street if you need better choices.

This hotel was a pleasant suprise...with walking distance to the square with all of Sonoma's great shops and restaurants. . Thank you Best Western Sononma for the upgrade! You made us feel really special!

I was disappointed to return to this property after two years of not visiting Sonoma to find the rooms in need of some TLC. Wall paint & furniture chipped throughout the room which brought down the pleasure of staying in the room. Saving grace was the Front Desk, Housekeeping staff, and great location. I would have rated service higher but I felt that the lack of the upkeep of the property affected my view.

I ended up getting an express deal off of priceline for $56 + tax for this room. So i wasnt expecting too much. However when my boyfriend and i checked in we found out for $20 more we could bring in the dog. Then we got our room. She put us in the back i think in room 118 which on the hotel layout map looked larger than the rest. It had a kitchenette, the bathroom had a whirlpool tub and heat lamp. The pool area was sooo nice the jacuzzi had its own gazebo and there was a fire pit. The best part was the steam room out there too. The continental breakfast was a 5 out of 10. Also this was right downtown sonoma which is just a beautiful spot in california

Room Tip: Room 118 was a off from the rest and appeared bigger too.
