“Nice stay but a few frustrations.....”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

The West Sonoma Inn is a rustic spot ...very moderately priced for the California wine region. Our room was very large and connected via a small kitchen to another room occupied by our travel companions. That was quite a nice arrangement for us and allowed us to prepare light meals and snacks during our stay. I can share a couple of things:

1. The rooms are not air conditioned...but have fans. Our room had a malfunctioning light, a broken hairdryer and non functional remote control. Not a big deal but just enough to be annoying

2. The town of Guernville is very, very quite. Besides a full service 24 hour supermarket there isn't much there. So depending on your expectations you might be disappointed

We bought a groupon for the West Sonoma Inn and spa which was advertised as a $400 plus value. Rooms were run down, but clean. Views were not what they were advertised to be. The town was run down, many transients, and very outdated with nothing really to do. It was close to many vineyards and pretty landscape. We did not feel safe to wander after dark.
The staff at the Inn were very kind and friendly. The groupon included "wine passes to 16 vineyards". However, many of the vineyards were free anyway, so I don't think that should be considered when calculating a "value" for the groupon!
Although the Inn was acceptable, it was definitely not what it was advertised to be!

My fiance and I only stay at West Sonoma Inn in Guerneville. We have probably stayed more than 25 times there and they treat us like family. They have a great spa and an area that you can sit outside and look at vineyards and beautiful mountains and Redwoods. It is really breathtaking. They have all kinds of rooms, most with fireplaces and some with hot tubs. We have probably stayed in every room now that I think of it (even the pet friendly rooms) and none of them disappointed. I am a musician/singer/songwriter and I often go out to the picnic tables outside and find so much inspiration in this atmosphere. They also have the absolute most COMFORTABLE beds you will ever sleep on. It feels like home. It is also within walking distance of the small, cute downtown area with all of the restaurants. Many of the hotels in this area are nice but this one is the absolute best. They also have a great spa, we only get massages here because we love them so much. Stay here and you will not be disappointed!

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, A lot of the rooms have a vineyard/mountain view, there is a pool/spa, visit th...

The main bad thing that I have to say against West Sonoma Inn & Spa is that we couldn't stay longer to appreciate it more. We stayed one night while exploring the Sonoma Valley.

The hotel is actually more like an upscale motel: each room leads outside on the ground floor. The room we had was very large with a gaz fireplace and a separate lounge-kitchenette. The bathroom was standard, but everything was clean and top-notch. However, the walls are a bit thin and we could hear the neighbor guests talking.

Sadly, no time to try the pool or the spa services.

The staff was very friendly and helpful for suggestions and recommendations. We had dinner nearby at Boon Eat + Drink, which is an amazing restaurant, the best in our vacations. A visit to the Armstrong Redwoods State National Reserve is a must since it's only a 10 minutes drive. You prefer the ocean? It's just 35-40 minutes drive west. And of course, there are wineries all around.

In conclusion, it was a great surprise to have such a nice place so far in the valley.

Only stayed for one night but took full advantage of the patio. Great staff but a little funky carpets. The rooms were pretty but we didn't spend that much time there.....the town was a little crazy and busy but we ran across a pedestrian bridge to a little more quiet area to go for a run. All in all a nice stay.

Where's a San Francisco start-up company with 45 employees to go for a two day company retreat? Why to the West Sonoma Inn, of course!

After searching numerous locations throughout the bay area we stumbled upon West Sonoma Inn. We were quickly charmed with the staff's willingness and ability to accommodate our large group, assist us with hosting a gathering in a their gorgeous lobby and outdoor garden area, and with their flexibility and patience in answering every last minute question and concern we had.

We couldn't have had a more amazing experience. From the lovely hotel rooms, to the excellent pool, to the local town nearby, everything went perfectly. They even allowed us to bring a local Taco Food Truck on the property to host a dinner for our employees.

I can't recommend the West Sonoma Inn more. Especially the awesome Jenny, who manages reservations. She was a pure delight to work with.

I was originally taken by surprise at the price for the room, but when I entered the room, I was overcome by the size, the cleanliness, and the decor of the room. The room was huge and even had a fireplace in it. The surroundings and the serenity of the property made the night very pleasant.
