Reviewed 19 May 2011

This hotel is not as nice as other reviews make it seem. It's not a dump, but it's not really nice either. It has granite, but carpet and other things feel dated. For the price, I expected something nicer. The staff was friendly, but the front desk clerk couldn't recommend a nice Mexican restaurant. We drove all over town and couldn't really find any nice restaurants. A list of restaurants would have been helpful. We finished our business early the next day, and the staff was very accommodating to let us check out a day early even past check out time. That was very nice. Wireless internet worked well, which was a plus.

I stayed here with my family and we LOVED this hotel so much. Because of nature of Santa Rosa area, there are not many things to do other than go to winery so we stayed there 1 night but it was one of the best stay ever! The room was very clean, spacious, and cozy - one thing I dislike was that my room faces towards parking lot.

The bathroom was fabulous - a marble bath which I couldn't even see at San Francisco 4 1/2 hotel. The swimming pool there is very cute (need to be cleaned tho..) Paradise ridge winery is in couple of miles away.

I would love to be back there someday!

Had a nice stay at the Fountaingrove. While it's the type of hotel that probably attracts more business clientele than tourists, it will be my first choice next time I stay in Santa Rosa. Super friendly front desk staff, and spacious rooms. I was surprised the rate was so reasonable. Good place to stay in Santa Rosa.

The hotel staff and manager I believe his name was Justin, but he went beyond his duties to make our stay absolutely wonderful! He gave us vineyard vouchers and even showed us a route to do for our wine tour! We enjoyed the clean jacuzzi and the swimming pool which felt amazing even at 10:30pm! The room was clean and inviting, we were upgraded and had two tv's and it was just fabulous! The Fountaingrove Inn is located in a perfect spot as well for a nice winery trip! I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family! The restaurant bar is amazing for some after wine tour meals and some more wine! (Although we had beers and whiskey!)

Room Tip: Be nice and smile for the staff as they deserve it

Spent 4 nights at this wonderful hotel and could not believe how lucky we were to have found this place. First of all, the location is excellent and close to all of the Sonoma County wineries. The hotel itself has a Frank Lloyd Wright feel to it with it's flat roof and wood and stone architectual features. Our room was clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. It was much larger than the typical hotel room and had plenty of room to store our luggage and personal belongings. The king-size bed had crisp new linens and was very comfortable. The bathroom was tiled in marble from floor to ceiling. The vanity was in a small alcove and was well-supplied with upscale toiletries. It was so refreshing to stay in a room that looked a little different than the typical the chain hotels. The property has the Equus restaurant on site where we had a light meal one evening and a delicious breakfast each morning. I can't say enough about the friendly staff. Everyone from the reception staff to the restaurant staff, and housekeeping staff was so pleasant and helpful. You could tell they all took much pride in doing their jobs well and in maintaining the reputation of this hotel. I would love to find similar hotels in other parts of the country. This one is a gem. About the only suggestion I would have for the management is if they could add brighter lights to the room. But this is so minor compared to the other wonderful attributes.

This busy hotel has a wonderful inn-like atmosphere and its location is ideal for exploring the Sonoma wine country. The concierge was extremely helpful in indicating wineries and provided us with complimentary tasting coupons. The buffet breakfast was very complete and inviting. Dinner at the hotel's restaurant, Equus, was outstanding. We much enjoyed the Luther Burbank Home and Garden in downtown Sonoma.

Very excellent hotel in short driving distance to many great wineries. Awesome rooms for a reasonably price.

We came for my wife's thirtieth birthday and Chris, the concierge, was great in making it a special weekend. Flowers on the bed, reservations, and travel tips were just a few of the ways Chris helped.
