We stayed for 2 nights in a redwood cottage. It was spacious, but took "rustic" to an extreme. Not likely to stay there again with many better options for the price in the area. Pros: In the middle of the woods, quiet, clean air, good restaurant and cafe next door. 10 minutes to Guerneville restaurants and Safeway. Pool/pool area was... More

We found this hotel just passing by. It does´t look much from the outside but when you open the gate to the pool area and garden it is just wonderful. The rooms are nice and very clean and the staff very nice. I loved waking up in the morning, opening the door to the garden and just smell the flowers.... More

So glad my husband and I discovered this place! We stayed in the one of the queen rooms that over look the garden, pool and GIANT redwoods! I'm not used to seeing trees so big! The pool area was really nice and I like how there was plenty of room to spread out. Plus the pool is big enough to... More

Old style motel...small rooms. But, great location....between Guernville and the Pacific coast. Beautiful swimming pool. Golf course, yes, 18 holes, surrounded by stately trees. Easy access to river action and to the awe-some beaches. Our room was clean and comfortable. Will return.

If you took this motel and put it anywhere else it would be less than $100 a night. But place it in Sonoma County in the Redwoods and immediately the price jumps. The property is nicely landscaped, has been updated-some- but the rooms are still small and pretty minimal. Pro:The wifi worked well. Con: the in-room refrigerator was NOISY to... More

My wife I stayed here while visiting friends that live in Monte Rio. After much research we chose this place mostly because of the location and our choice was rewarded.

Close to Bodega Bay, beautiful location along Russian River, older motel but in great remodeled shape, nice pool, some nice palms which were rare for the area and which I like to see when I leave Idaho. Very nice close restaurant dining area and post office. Close to Guerneville and a Safeway store.

You are rather limited on choices of where to stay when in the Russian River area. Most require a two-night stay which is understandable considering their livelihood is dependent on tourism. However, what isn't understandable or acceptable is a dirty room. The room was not attended to the entire time of our two-night stay. If you can any other place... More
