We stayed at the Mission Inn on our way from San Diego to Sonoma. We drove a bit each day, without hotel reservations made in advance. Thanks to (my new love) the iPad we booked a room wherever we found ourselves on that evening. Since hotel rates are pricey in this area and we arrived early evening we used a discount site to book sight unseen. Like another reviewer I exclaimed "oh no" when I saw the exterior, but was quickly and nicely surprised with the interior. And the exterior patio and pool are nice, the facade is just an older style. The room was very comfortable, with new furnishings, comfy bed, flat screen tv, nice bath products, robes, and it was clean. The staff was very nice. We were even "upgraded" to a king balcony room. We had dinner at the Mission Ranch Inn, a very short drive, past the actual Mission. What a great place for dinner. So if you're looking for a budget hotel, a few steps up from the usual chains, this is a great place.
