“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2009

August 13th. Great place, very clean, quite and really nice people. Good referral to the restaurant across the street for dinner, Dawn Rance Lodge. We would love to live in this small town. Check out the local coffee shop and ice creme store. Its a town where everyone says hello and everyone knows their neighbors. Armstrong woods just up the street from the coffee shop, much nicer than Muir woods.

I traveled with my parents and children (8 and 4). The area is wonderful and the hotel service was outstanding. The private cabin like accommodations make for a great spot to get away from it all.

My spouse and I went to the Russian River Valley this past weekend to ride our bike through wine country. We booked the Jr Vineyard Cottage Suite since it had a hot tub and a private deck over-looking a vineyard. When we got there we saw that the hot tub was in the room and not on the deck. It was the only suite where the hot tub was not on the deck. We spoke with the manager and he apologized and upgraded us to a larger suite with a hot tub on the deck with no extra charge. The larger vineyard suites are large and loaded with lots of extras. It has a full kitchen and the view from the deck is great. The staff was friendly helpful and made great recommendations for wineries to visit as well as local restaurants. The second night we had to move to a suite without a hot tub, but it was also spacious, quiet and relaxing. The people in Guerneville are all so pleasant and friendly. We will definitely go back as we live in San Francisco, only 2 hours away.

As a travel writer (international) I come across all types of inns, hotels and resorts. I'm particularly familiar with the Russian River as when we lived in the Bay Area before becoming expats, this was a frequent getaway spot. It's been nearly 15 years since
we've been back, and had remembered Guerneville's hotels as funky little B&Bs with little going for them. Needless to say, I was amazed at finding the West Sonoma Inn right in Guerneville. The hotel, set on the grounds of an old hotel with the back side facing a vineyard, has been completely remodeled by new owners who've poured their hearts into an impressive upgrade.

Every detail has been attended to - fireplaces, wonderfully comfy beds, nice fixtures, granite in bathrooms and kitchen, decks with Adirondack chairs to sip a glass of wine
while watching the vines grow outback. The owners have done a superb job of sharing
their sense of taste with those travelers lucky enough to find this little gem in the heart
of the redwoods. Enjoy!

My boyfriend and I came up for a long weekend and enjoyed ourselves very much. I admit, at first I was a little disappointed by the half view of the vineyard from our room (it was cut in half by the room next door), but whatever, no biggee. The people are FANTASTIC! (Might I suggest the couples massage w/ Kesu and Terry) And the in room two person spa tub worked out wonderfully. The bed was like a big soft cloud, so comfy. And the fireplace made it really cozy and romantic. There are some great restaurants in the area and my baby loves to eat, so that was good. We grabbed a picnic basket from The Applewood Inn across the road and drove to Jenner to have a picnic on the beach. It was great!!
Eamon, you really helped make our weekend great. Much appreciated!!
All in all, Aaron and Dre from Oakland had a wonderful time. Thanks Guys!

We first came to the West Sonoma Inn and Spa in February for a special anniversary celebration. The service we experienced was fantastic!! The inn keeper's and staff gave us superb service. We found them extremely kind and helpful!

We have since returned 3 other times within the last few months and have stayed in various rooms. We found them all to be very beautiful!! With King size bed's, white and burgundy bedding, down comforters, lots of pillows. Nice gas fireplaces, ceiling fans and various other fans/space heaters at your disposal. Nice big bathrooms. Very nice bathroom amenities and towels. Clean kitchenetts, with nice dishes. We have found all the rooms to be clean and extremely comfortable!!!

This by far is the absolute best spot in all of Guerneville!!! The price of the rooms are reasonable. The grounds are beautiful. The location is with in walking distance of all downtown Guerneville. It's close to Northwood Golf Course, and the fantastic scenery of the Bodega Bay coast.

There isn't anything we don't like about this Inn and Spa. We have visited various other hotels and resorts in the Guerneville area for the past 30 years, but there is no other place we would rather stay then the West Sonoma Inn and Spa.

Thank you West Sonoma Inn and Spa for making our stay in Guerneville a very pleasant one. We look forward to experiencing your hospitality again soon.

We decided to head to the wine country for Valentine's weekend very last minute. Called West Sonoma Inn, who informed us that given it was a very busy weekend, the only accomodation they had available was a basic room. We jumped on it since the price sounded right and the place had some excellent reviews.
We loved every minute of it. First off, the location in the quaint sleepy town of Guerneville is excellent: the place is very close to some stunning wine country drives that featured some of the best wine tasting experiences we've had. Some really good restaurants near by as well.
The room, even though basic, was very comfortable, clean, and - we felt - a good value for the price we paid. The staff was quite friendly and helpful in pointing out restaurants and wineries.
We had initially planned to stay a night, but enjoyed it so much that we decided to stay for two nights.
