“Great Stay for the Cost”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2013

We just got home from our 2 day weekend in Santa Rosa/Rohnert Park/Petaluma....well, you get it. It was a great value. We had a king size bedroom, very roomy with a flat screen TV, Microwave, Refrigerator, WiFi (free) etc. Bed was clean & fresh. Very quiet. The staff was helpful as well. I would recommend it highly!

We stayed in a 2 x king room. It was large and very clean with everything we needed. You can walk into town but it's a couple of miles into town so we drove in. We ate breakfast in the on site café - food quality was good but service is slow at busy times with the waiter needing to be reminded that we hadn't received orange juice / milk etc. It didn't spoil the experience just something to bear in mind.

Thank you MrsH23. I am glad you found our king rooms large, and clean. Seems to be just what you were looking for . Sounds like the Cafe was busy, i do apology that the server had to be reminded that you did not receive your milk or juice. . Next time in the area make sure you come and stay at our hotel. Have a wonderful Summer.

This is a very nice older hotel with a fine pool. I like the open grass area and it is close to downtown area for eating. Big new flat screens with large rooms that do everything well, good beds with a place to eat on grounds. Really good price for this area. Staff was nice too.

Two couples stayed in two King rooms. They couldn't be more different. One room was large with ample space to walk around the bed, to & from the bathroom,etc. The other room was the SMALLEST hotel room I've ever stayed in. The bed near the wall was maybe 20inches from the wall.

With that said, the rooms were fine. Had been recently upgraded. Nothing outstanding, but nothing horrible. Exactly what you'd expect for a hotel at this price. The shower door did not close fully so water leaked all over the floor.

Only 1.5 miles to downtown Santa Rosa. An easy straight shot down SR Ave.

Thank you Red Zin, I do apologize for the difference in the room size. Problaly what happened was one room was booked as a standard King, and the other room was a Deluxe King. There is quite a difference in the room size. Sorry about the showere door, I do hope that when you are in the area again, you will give us another try.

We stayed in the garden area which was quiet. The beds are comfortable and the room is clean. It met our needs for a two night stay. The staff was pleasant. It is close to the and easy to get to downtown Santa Rosa and to the wine country. Lots of great shopping and restaurants in Santa Rosa.

I have stayed in numerous establishments near Sonoma/Napa, and for the price I consider this one to be the best deal. It is located in an unexciting, rather nondescript section of Santa Rosa, however it has easy access to the 101 and you'll save a lot of money by staying here. Request a room in the "garden section" which is located in the back of the property. You will not hear any noise from the busy street and you'll be able to enjoy the well landscaped, picturesque garden. The rooms are large and extremely clean. An added bonus is the refrigerator, microwave, and full size closet. There is a nice pool located in the back as well. The motel is reminiscent of an old motor court. I was impressed by the friendly, efficient staff.
