Yep, second time staying here, liked it both times. I really like the location, just 35 min. from downtown calistoga - and cheaper than staying in the Napa Valley. It is also just 25 min from Healdsburg area (including Dry Creek). Rooms are comfortable but average. Not a great luxury stay but nice. Restraunt on property, but there are a ton of great places to eat around here. My recommend is Willeys Wine bar not even 10 min up the road from the hotel.

we enjoyed the stay at this hotel. Average value for the price. the room was clean and comfortable. the on-site lounge/restaurant had great happy hour specials. travelers should know this hotel is located on a busy intersection 4-5 miles from the very nice downtown area.

I've stayed at the Fountaingrove many times over many years, typically 6-10 times a year. It has gone through various room remodeling and changes, but remains a quiet and comfortable inn, with friendly staff, convenient location, nice rooms and an excellent adjoining restaurant/bar (so-so breakfast but great lunch and dinner).

This hotel is extremely nice and in a great location! I would definitely stay there again, especially at the Priceline rate that I got! :)

Received a great rate through Travelzoo. Room was a nice size. Very clean. The bed was comfy. Bathroom was roomy. The room decor was nice. Some of the distressed accessories in the bathroom just looked old. Easy access on and off the freeway. I would stay here again.

We chose the Fountaingrove Inn for a one night stay after an event. We had already had another stay in the past at the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country which is literally right above it on the Hill. Although we found the Hilton spacious with a nice grounds and pool and a wonderful breakfast, we thought the rooms to be cheaply appointed and dated.

We thought the Fountaingrove to be trendier and more "boutique-y" style. This did actually prove to be the case. The rooms were clean and in good shape, nicely decorated with marble baths. The lobby was contemporary. Staff was helpful and friendly and when we called with a concern about the TV, someone arrived to help literally within seconds.

The appearance of the room was bright and cheery but unfortunately, you could not open the drapes to let natural light since the parking lot came right up to the window. Consequently, we felt like we were in a hole. A nicely decorated hole but a hole. We examined the property and due to the layout, did not see many areas where this would not be the case.

The pool, unfortunately (which was a must on a 108 degree day) was very small and cementy. It served it's purpose to cool off but there was no incentive to hang out and linger.

The disappointing last lingering taste was breakfast at the Equis Restaurant. I am not sure what it is like at night but there was absolutely no atmosphere during the day. I can't put a handle on it.....tables too spread apart, nothing to aborb sound of discussions or tableware chattering, no warmth? The waitstaff spoke loudly (which echoed), called to each other from across the room. They were The coffee was just horrid and the menu items were not much better. We left feeling our Sun. brunch would have been better at Starbucks. It was just a bad note to leave on.

Put these 2 properties together and you would have the perfect stay. This weekend, The FGI was considerably cheaper than the Hilton so we fell we made the right choice. I will have to let that be our guide for future stays.
