“No cell phone service”
Reviewed 18 July 2007

There is no Cingular/AT&T cell phone reception at the inn at occidental. The inn itself is beautiful, the people are friendly, they have wireless internet. But if you need to stay in touch with the outside world, I would not recommend staying there. HOWEVER if you want to escape from the world THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT. It is an hour from Sonoma and about two hours from Napa. Secluded and beautiul. If I hadn't had to check out early because of my phone service, it would have been a great trip.

The Inn at Occidental guests can communicate with the outside world. Yes, we do have in room landlines to make phone calls. No, cell phones do not operate in Occidental, however they do within 3-4 minutes outside of Occidental. We do have WIFI, we do offer guests TV service if requested since our rooms have cable. Newspapers arrive each morning. We're 15 minutes from the Pacific Coast, one hour from the Golden Gate Bridge, 45 minutes to Calistoga in Napa and one hour to St. Helena.
Our first tasting room is 5 minutes away since were in the Russian River Appelation.

Welcoming hosts, magnificent accommodations, a serene and beautiful setting, outstanding ammenities....the perfect getaway. The Inn is located within a short drive from the wineries of Sonoma and Napa; a 25 minutes drive with world class vistas to the northern California coast and 20 minutes from Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve.

We did it all and reconnected with each other in our beautfiully decorated and comfortable suite. We were able to "come home " to the Inn and away from all the hustle & bustle of wine country. We relaxed, enjoyed the garden, sipped fine Sonoma wines with other guests each evening. It was absolutely the "perfect getaway" in the perfect location. We will be back!

My wife and I stayed at the Inn at Occidental for 4 nights recently. It was a wonderful experience. The room (the Summer Room) was spacious, sunny, and comfortable. Jerry and Tina, the owners, are as gracious and helpful as can be. They know the area well and are happy to give you as much or little help as you want in making recommendations. The town of Occidental is very small but has 4 or 5 restaurants in walking distance and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. There are many advantages to touring wineries in Sonoma rather than Napa County, particularly if you want to get away from 4 lane highways and heavily marketed wineries. The Inn puts all of Sonoma in reach, and as an added bonus is a beautiful 25 minute drive to the ocean. This really is a place worth staying and coming back to and we look forward to our next visit.

We had an oppurtunity to stay at the Inn at Occidental this week. What a great place. The setting is beautiful and quiet. Our room The Safari was very charming. From the comfortable bed, the fireplace and the relaxing two person spa you could not ask for more. It was very relaxing sitting out on our patio with a glass of wine. Breakfast was wonderful. Alana who greeted us when we arrived was very attentive to our needs and even made dinner reservations at the Union Hotel (bring your appetite). Tina and Jerry treated us like old friends. Thank you for a wonderful stay, give Kalua a pat on the head for us and we hope to see you soon

Staying at the Inn at Occidental was an experience we won't forget. When I started exploring places to celebrate my husband's special birthday , I had high expectations and special desires. I wanted a place within two hours of SF Bay Area, a place we'd never been before, and a place near a spa. With a friend's recommendation I looked up the Inn at Occidentai and it had everything. The experience more than fulfilled our expectations. We stayed in the romantic Cut Glass Suite featuring a private patio and full sized hot tub, even better than the website pix !. The Innkeepers are professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. The property is beautifully maintained, luxurious, full of art and very comfortable. We gorged on gourmet breakfasts, met fascinating guests during Happy Hour, and ate in fabulous restaurants personally recommended by the Innkeepers. Cal's birthday surprises were ongoing. Chocolate truffles (optional) greeted him on arrival and a (complimentary) chocolate cake surprised him on his special day. Services at the nearby Osmosis Spa are excellent. The Inn is conveniently located a few minutes stroll from town, close to scenic wineries and an easy drive to the ocean. We came back refreshed and and eager to share with everyone.

I was looking for a quick (five day) get away in the wine country for my wife and I on our anniversary that afforded us the opportunity to recconect with each other, while enjoying the beauty of the region. I couldn't have been happier; both with the region and the service & ammenities afforded us by the Hosts of the Inn.

Jerry & Tina (The Hosts) thought of every need. The breakfasts were wonderful, the accomodations warm & enviting and Jerry & Tina were so attentive to make our stay unforgetable. (Review with them the local cusine. It was sooo good!) I would encourage anyone thinking of visiting the wine country to visit thier website at www.innatoccidental.com and view the detailed activities that have already been planned to allow their guests an unforgetable time while visiting the charming town of Occidental and the surounding region. (There is so much to see, do and enjoy!)
