Spa and Pool areas were well kept and the covered Spa was very nice. Rooms with patios with pool access in the Garden area are a plus and the entire property is well kept The restaurant on the property is consistently good, both in the quality of food and service. Lobby staff very helpful and friendly. Beds are very nice...

I would like to suggest that you change the parking policy. One space (somewhere) should be guaranteed to everyone paying for a room. People drive to get there so it makes no reasonlbe sense that there is not necessarily a place for your car... and ideally, right in front of your room as that's the way the parking lot is...

Thank you for your response, It is a common courtesy to not park in front of someone else room. I am sorry that this happened, Unfortunately we can not see where everybody is parking. I think some sometimes people bring two cars, and they do not declare them when they check in. Again accept my apology.

Facility was well laid out, well run and staff was great. On site restaurant was very helpful when we needed special diet items. The layout of the room was well done - lots of counter space in the bathroom sink area with indirect lighting separated from sleeping area.

Many rooms with small patio overlooking pool. Nice amenities. Within 30-45 minutes of Healdsburg, Sonoma and Calistoga and St. Helena. Located in a commercial area, but set back from main artery. Easy access to 101 freeway.

inn is a bit dated but very clean and adequate. the units are in a two storey row that is perpendicular to the road which makes it quiet. we only stayed overnight and it was pouring rain so we didn't really get a chance to use the nice pool....LOL

This was much nicer than the one in Monterey. Doesn't look junky at all. Rooms are nice and surround the pool and hot tub. Very nice place. I would definately stay again. Your on a main street but still secluded and quiet!

This is an older property built in 1958. It has been beautifully maintained and it is in a great location. It reminds us of the fine motels we used to stay at during the fifties and sixties. There is a small cafe on the property that serves breakfast and dinner. Wine and beer available. No room service, but you can...

Stayed with our German Shepherd service dog. We had a large room with hardwood floors. Large enough for her big crate & directly across from the "pet area". Walking distance to our favorite place for breakfast, Jeffrey's Creekside Cafe. 4 stars because I fell on the ice when walking around the pool area. We will definitely stay there again!
