“Faultless”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013

Great hotel in a lovely town. Really friendly and helpful staff. A beautiful spot with pool, free bikes to borrow (5 minutes to town, 10 minutes to Armstrong State Park (beautiful)). Great breakfasts at poolside. Room and bed very comfortable with all amenities, private deck a nice touch. Fireplace in room. The Boon restaurant in town serves some of the best food I've ever tasted and such great staff there too! All in all - the best. Just go!

Room Tip: Room 8, nearest the hot tub is great with a private deck at the rear - it's a detatched room too...

When we drove up we were concerned traffic noise would be an issue. We walked through the gate and realised this was a gentle oasis in the middle of a river resort town. Minimalist decor, spa feeling. The pool and hot tub give you a sense of escape. The honour bar a nice touch. Bikes free to use although we drove in to the restaurant affiliated to the hotel.....(Fabulous meal) Next night we will ride out Brommies in (Very Brommie friendly)

Room Tip: Book away from the road.

Stayed here for 5 nights for a party event in Guerneville. Wonderful hospitality. We staying in a standard queen No 5 at the rear is no problem with traffic noise. Rather pointless back yard. Lovely breakfast slightly different each day but usually with fruit and high end baked items. Good coffee and juice each day. Takes about 15 mins to walk into town. Would be nice if the pool and hot tub were clothing optional even if only at limited times. Pity that reservations couldn't be made of the restaurant in town - would be a lovely perk of staying at their hotel. Staff very caring and attentive to their guests.

Boon Hotel is a charming inn in a charming town. The staff is friendly and helpful and the homemade biscuits at breakfast are not to be believed. Go just for that! We took the hotel bikes to Armstrong Woods and to town. Was great not to have to get back in the car while we were there. The rooms are simple but stylish. I was concerned about traffic noise out on the road but it dies down at night. Would definitely go back.

Spent three nights at the Boon and recommend it highly. This is a laid back, comfortable place to stay. We stayed in #7, the far end unit with a living room and bedroom. The king bed was very comfortable. There are two small flat screen tvs. The bathroom had a shower only which we prefer. The pool is clean and refreshing. The grounds are well maintained and attractive. We used the hot tub as well when it wasn't too hot out. The boon does not have air conditioning but it isn't needed. Our room was cool and comfortable at all times. They serve a continental breakfast with fresh fruit that we enjoyed. The quality of the baked goods was excellent. The staff was great...friendly and professional. The hotel is dog friendly and we loved meeting Boon, the dog host....such a mellow guy! The only change I would make is to add coffee makers in the rooms. Breakfast is not available until 8:30 so we had to run into town and pick up coffee when we were up before then.

Room Tip: Room 7 is a two room unit with a comfortable sitting area and small table and chairs. It is at the...

My husband and I stayed at boon for a little baby moon weekend getaway. We brought our dog and were made to feel so welcome. Staying at Boon felt like staying at a friend's because the pool was such a "hangout spot" complete with a help yourself honor bar and great tree and garden views. We loved it, the service and pool were highlights. I only wish they had a poolside wine and cheese happy hour to go along with the great evening pool lounging and drinking.

Pros
+ very clean
+ very friendly and helpful staff
+ thoughtful in-room amenities like wine corks, board for cheese and crackers, etc
+ comfortable bed & cute decor
+ very reasonable in-room bar prices, cute honor bar at pool
+ nice pool area
+ free breakfast included
+ nice bath products
Considerations
- No AC. Probably not an issue on most weekends, but it sort of felt like for $250/night there should be AC.
- There was no couch or coffee table in the room. Would be nice to have a place to put things/sit and relax. Other decor of the room was nice and fashionable.
- deck in the front of the room is shared. They have grown bushes to try and shield you from foot traffic of other guests, but it is still a small motel so fairly close together. Not a bad thing - just depends on what you are looking for. Noise from other guests was not a problem at all, and the place still had a quiet, relaxing feel.

It's a long walk to town and I wouldn't want to do it in the dark. But the benefit of this is that you are out of the fray. Close to the road but this didn't bother us (and we're pretty sensitive) - not much traffic at night.

Overall pleasant stay. We were here for a wedding so we didn't spend a ton of time in the room/at the resort, and it was just what we needed.
