“Great Place to Stay”
Reviewed 5 April 2014

We recently stayed for three nights at the Jack Londonge and it was a great experience. The rooms were clean, the towels fluffy, and there were complimentary sundries and coffee in the rooms. The grounds are beautiful and include a nice pool and hot tub. Excellent restaurants are within walking distance. We had an exceptional meal at the Glen Ellen Inn. The Glen Ellen Market has great fixings for picnics. The food at The Jack London Saloon was good. The innkeeper, Kim, was extremely helpful. She offered great suggestions on exploring, dining, and wineries. Jack London State Park is nearby and is not be missed.

In a world of too many spa resorts it's nice to find this simple little place. It's clean and has a nice pool and hot tub. Walking distance to all eating establishments. No muss, no fuss. If you want high-end modern this is not the place for you.
Reservations a must. They were full even on a Sunday night.

The purpose of our visit was to spend time at Jack London State Park, so we chose our lodging based on the name and the great review. During a 4-night stay, The room was very quiet and contained lovely matching furniture. Late in our visit we discovered that the beautiful chairs were also recliners. After a full of hiking this was heaven.

The grounds were beautifully maintained, and we took advantage of the hot tub one evening. Great location and experience.

I was a little worried about staying here as it is only 2 stars with AAA, but my worries were non-existent when we walked through the door to our room. It was very clean and cute. The bathroom shower was sparkling clean and the shower head was great as you could adjust the water spray - plus the water was steaming hot which is rare to find in a hotel these days.

Pool and spa were great and everything was very clean. Definitely would recommend this place to others.

We stayed in Room 9 this past weekend and had a very pleasant stay. Nice king bed. No frills room but clean. Shower / bathroom is pretty old school, but functional and fine (open the window above the shower because there isn't any ventilation so it gets steamy!). Walk next door to the bar and get treated like an old friend. There is a nice hot tub too. Quiet location. Best fresh air! Walk across the street to the nicest grocery, deli, wine store that has everything you could need and then some! This is our second stay at this lodge and we would stay again! Two great restaurants are close bye too - The Glen Ellen Inn and the Olive and Vine. Would recommend both!

Room Tip: We liked room 9

Stayed here on a Friday night via a Travelzoo deal. The lodge is basically a converted motel but well done. We really enjoyed the jacuzzi, but the pool was too cold to swim in. There is a bar next door that is open till 2am, so that was handy. There were a couple of nice restaurants within walking distance, so that was also handy.

OK, so this property isn't new. It's in a unique period-setting location, steeped in in history. It's close to some great wineries. Fairly well kept, flat screen, nice folks, clean and comfortable. Pool and hot tub by the running creek. They know what is going on in the area and have some free tasting passes. But, be ready because it IS your mother's lodging. Shower was hot, HVAC is different and no complimentary breakfast. But a fabulous little market with an awesome buffet just across the street, open whenever you should be awake and about. I have mixed feelings because it was not a bad experience, just don't get too picky and enjoy the price and what's good about this historic area. Adjacent Wolf House restaurant is not a tourist place in my opinion.

Room Tip: Second floor toward the back.
