“Great value and superior rooms”
Reviewed 22 June 2013

A nice well kept property with surprisingly superior rooms. The room decor is nice and great crown molding! Excellent prices and the garden cafe is a good value for breakfast. You can spend more, but won't get much more for your money!

Room Tip: Ask about a room around the garden pool

We stay at this hotel a number of times a year to get out of the San Francisco summer FOG.
TWO---(YES--TWO) outside pools--on heated, one not. Always very clean rooms. Pretty property with outside landscaping. Staff ALWAYS very courteous & helpful. Fight off US 101 just south of downtown Santa Rosa.

We were called to the Santa Rosa area because of an emergency and this was a last minute choice for a place to stay and was booked late in the evening. I was concerned when we first pulled into the parking lot because the layout reminded me of motels of the 70's. But, our room was clean and well appointed. It was very quiet even though we were close to the highway 101. There is no complimentary breakfast but we found the little breakfast cafe on site to be very good and a pleasant place to eat. I doubt that you could find the quality of food at a nearby restaurant for the price. Our room was huge and well appointed. We did pay more for the room than the suggested prices listed here but I think that was because of the last minute reservations late at night. Even with a AAA discount it was more than listed here. We not spend much time looking around the grounds but what we did see looked as though it was well care for.

This hotel is way out of town with just one local restaurant in walking distance, but it is quite a nice place. Our room was large, a comfortable bed, & clean. There is a swimming pool but we didn't have time to use it as we were more interested in touring the wine areas near by. Having to drive into Downtown made it difficult to have a nice meal without a glass of wine as we don't drink & drive.

Thank you Walmeracually.. I am happy that you found our hotel to be quite nice, and comfortable.
We are actually only 1 mile from downtown, where there is great dinning. We would have been more than happy to call a taxi to pick you up, as well as bring you back. Also next time you are in town there are a lot of wine tours that we can recommend for you. I thank you for choosing our hotel.

Excellent value, well kept property and we loved the breakfast cafe. The room was clean and next to the pool. The grounds are very well maintained and it is aptly named as the "garden inn". We enjoyed our stay very much.

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.
