We were attending a concert at the Occidental Arts Center and didn't want to drive back down winding roads in the dark. We didn't want to pay for luxury, and the Occidental Hotel was just what we needed. The staff was friendly, the room was large, clean, and well laid out. The bed was comfortable, and there was plenty of...

I had trouble sleeping or even being in the room during my stay because of noise. I have traveled around the country and have never experienced walls like these that amplify the noise of other rooms (TV, people talking, etc). The noise was actually louder between rooms than outside the rooms when I walked the hallways to figure out where...

Hello nypI2001, Thank you for providing your comments on what looks to be a less than satisfactory stay with us. It is rare for us to receive a two star rating. Our goal is for every guest to have a positive experience. We have reviewed the record of your stay and would like to apologize for any noise problems you...

This is a nice motel, clean and with all the standard features. The location is remote, beautiful and close to Alliance Redwoods and Sonoma Canopy Tours, a great place to zipline. But there is nothing outstanding about the property itself. If you're on a tight budget, I recommend staying in Santa Rosa and driving to your destination in the Occidental...

Quaint little motel from the 60s is clean, with a very nice staff. Beds were very soft, toilet paper was like tissue paper, towels were thin, heater old. In room fridge was handy. Hundreds of TV channels. Location is the draw, as the tiny town of Occidental couldnt be any more charming. As I said, hotel staff was very down...

Really enjoyed our stay here. Only downside was not so friendly staff. Room great with all the needed amenities. Great location and lovely town. Not cheap but no more expensive than the nearest chain motels.

Clean, pleasant, and very standard motel-type lodging. Price seemed way too high for the quality of the room and the hotel' severe few amenities. We figured that the price point was because this is a fairly out-of-the-way town and there's no competition.

Hi Dorrit G, Thank you for your stay and feedback. We value every guest and all the comments we receive. We are more than a bit concerned about the impression you came away with of our Hotel. We reviewed the pricing of our rooms on the nights of your stay and found our rates were below those of competing, similar...

Great hospitality, comfortable well-appointed rooms at a reasonable rate! Paid TWICE as much for a room of inferior quality in Healdsburg the prior night. Nestled in a cute town in the saddle of the coastal range, a fun place from which to explore and enjoy either (or BOTH) the wine country or the beautiful north coast Bodega/Tomales Bay area. Delicious...

Way off the beaten path but clean! Very nice staff and the town, as the highway name states, is very bohemian! The town is only a few blocks but it has character. Bohemian Market reminds me of Trader Joes years ago.

King bed, spacious room with fridge and microwave. Town is cute-restaurants, grocery stores, bar and shops all within a couple of blocks. Nice place to stay for a romantic getaway and it was a pretty drive getting out to this little town.

We stayed at Occidental Lodge for three nights at the end of August. We were impressed right away about how clean this hotel is kept. The staff were very friendly and always helpful. Thumbs up to the lady that cleaned our room. It was always spotless when we returned from our day trips. The hotel is in a nice location...
