“4 Nights in Santa Rosa”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

This was our second stay at this motel. It is very conveniently located for quick and easy access
to the highway for getting to the coast as well as Napa/Sonoma. Parking, wi fi and continental
breakfast are included. Breakfast is cereal, toast, waffles, pastries, a limited selection of fresh
fruit, as well as hard-cooked eggs and yoghurt. Dining area is well maintained and you can eat
in the dining room or at tables at the pool area. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful, rooms are
clean and quiet, although they could use a bit of updating. There are lots of restaurants in the
area. There are newer and fancier places to stay, but we found the value for the price is hard to
beat. Would recommend.

We booked this hotel at the end of September, 2013 while attending a wedding in nearby Sabastipol, CA. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and easily accessed. The breakfast included in the relatively low daily rate is substantial and has a variety of foods. A shopping center and a Trader's Joe are a few minutes away by foot. Also nearby by car are the Charles Shultz Museum and the Luther Burbank Home. I highly recommend these sites if you have the time.

Our car club stayed here during our trip into Northern California. The facility is quite large but the parking spaces were large which relieved us of having our cars dinged by those parked by us. The rooms are large and were very clean. I'd would stay here again if I find myself in Santa Rosa. The only downside was that there are few restaurants around.

Stayed here two nights on September 25th-26th 2013. Pulling up to the hotel we were a bit scared. It looks like a hotel out of the 70's or even 60's. Checked in and went right to the room. No elevator at this place so if you have a disability make sure you ask for first floor. Not easy to bring suitcases up a flight of steps, but we managed. Room was very clean but a bit small for the two of us with 4 suitcases. This is a green hotel which means the ac/heat is controlled by movement in the room. I found it to get hot in the middle of the night with no movement in the room from us sleeping. Room was also hot when we returned at the end of the day from not being there. Continental breakfast is nicely prepared, the only thing that was weird was the breakfast worker staring at you while you were eating. Overall a great value in a great location. There are a few places to walk to from this hotel, but none of them are rated very high on TripAdvisor so we didn't venture to any of them.

Initially I was surprised at how large a facility this is. From the photos one would think it is a small "motor court" type building. Wrong! It is quite large. We had booked as a group, but unfortunately our seven couples were split up among the four buildings.
The rooms were very clean and reasonably well appointed. The buildings are not new, but they have done a good job of maintaining the facility.
The only down-side for me is the lack of restaurants within walking distance. There is a Carrow's, but that just wasn't what the group was looking for on a wine country tour. We ended up going to a shopping center taqueiria that was just okay.

Stayed for 1 night and was impressed with cleanliness, safety, facilities, staff and the price. Wanted to stay another night but they were sadly booked up. Would definitely recommend to people staying in the area.

Stayed here 6th-8th September with my girlfriend. Drove from San Francisco on a Friday afternoon and the traffic was awful. Took us 3 hours and this being the first time I had driven in the States and in an automatic, the journey was draining. When we checked in, we took the car to park outside the room, about 200 yards from reception. I couldn't get the card to open the door. I tried every which way but no joy so I walked over to reception again and got it changed. Came back and it still didnt work. After trying for a minute or so I could see the receptionist walking over to help me. Turns out she said the door must have been at fault...back to reception again and she changed our room and said this was an upgrade for our trouble. No problems this time, room had a sofa, fridge, microwave and coffee machine and was clean so we were very happy!

The breakfast is self service but there is a lovely spread and its a perfect start to the day. You can bring your breakfast out of the little room and eat it by the pool in the morning sunshine. The lady working in the breakfast area was very efficient and made sure everything was replenished, be it the hard boiled eggs, toast or the coffee. The pool area was quite quiet during our stay and very relaxing. Water a tad bit cold but not majorly so.

Overall we were very happy and in the end disappointed that we couldnt extend our stay for another day to enjoy the lovely weather.
