“Off the beaten path for sure! But worth it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013 via mobile

Way off the beaten path but clean! Very nice staff and the town, as the highway name states, is very bohemian! The town is only a few blocks but it has character. Bohemian Market reminds me of Trader Joes years ago.

King bed, spacious room with fridge and microwave. Town is cute-restaurants, grocery stores, bar and shops all within a couple of blocks. Nice place to stay for a romantic getaway and it was a pretty drive getting out to this little town.

Room Tip: 36 is upstairs, most private since no one walks by your room.

We stayed at Occidental Lodge for three nights at the end of August. We were impressed right away about how clean this hotel is kept. The staff were very friendly and always helpful. Thumbs up to the lady that cleaned our room. It was always spotless when we returned from our day trips.
The hotel is in a nice location in the small quaint town of Occidental. There are many restaurants within this small town as well as a grocery store for those who prefer to eat in. There is a microwave and small refrigerator in each room. It is an easy drive to Bodega Bay or to Guerneville and Armstrong Redwoods which is a great location for a lovely picnic.
Keep in mind this is not necessarily a fancy hotel but it is clean and well kept. You can stay at fancier hotels along the coast but you will pay double if not more and there will be no microwave in the room. And you will miss out on this quaint little town.
And if you do decide to stay here, don't miss out on taking Coleman Valley Road to the coast. You will have a spectacular view from high above overlooking the coast and the road will take you down to highway 1 just beyond Bodega Bay.
Give it a try, you'll be glad you did!

This hotel staff has done a fabulous job keeping this old hotel up-to-date, clean and comfortable. Our family loves the charm of Occidental and surrounding areas for exploring. It's a great getaway spot.

We used this as a jumping off spot for wine country, Bodega bay and coast, and Russian river area. We stayed in the upstairs LARGE double queen room. Absolutely fantastic. The staff was friendly and really helpful. Very quiet and beautiful property. Less than an hour away from everything. Would definitely stay here again, and would recommend this to all. Two big Italian restaurants, and a great breakfast place are all a two minute walk. It was a great trip, made better by this wonderful little property.

Room Tip: Try the upstairs large queen.... fantastic

I thought this hotel (really more of a motel) was a great choice for our weekend overnight while we visited the Osmosis Day Spa in Freestone. The room was very clean and quiet - and the location was great with the Friday night Farmer's Market right across the street.

Highly recommended - good location, clean rooms and good value!

Right in the heart of it all. Very friendly hotel staff, clean rooms, good room amenities. If you have reason to be in Occidental, this is the place to stay!

Within walking distance of a great little Mexican restaurant, fantastic breakfast joint, and two Italian places. There are also several bars close by.
