Located in such a beautiful little town and it's about a 30min drive to most the amazing redwood forest. Very helpful and friendly staff. We came for a wedding and we had the most amazing time. They also have a pool but it was a little chilly when we were there.

We made a last minute reservation and we're delighted. Lovely room, wood burning fireplace, poster bed with canopy, wine tasting, and truly sumptuous breakfast. Couldn't be more pleased. Occidental is a sweet little town in Pinot country with some good restaurants nearby and really nice people. Right outside the Inn there was an organic farmers market and a drum and... More

Occidental was absolutely magical!!! We had the best time. The hotel was immaculate and the staff so friendly. The restaurant directly across the street was the best! We went twice for breakfast both times had excellent food and a very friendly staff.

We used to stay here regularly when it was known as the Occidental Lodge. Our last stay was about 4 years ago, and the placed definitely looked "tired." Since becoming the Occidental Hotel, the facility has definitely improved. The large rooms and grounds have been upgraded. The rooms are still large and clean, furnishings are newer, and the bathroom sink... More

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here. It's an older hotel but updated and quaint atmosphere. Room and bath were clean, staff friendly and helpful. Pool was sparkling clean. Beautifully set in the woods. And great restaurants a shirt walk away. Definitely recommend!

The photos do not do justice to this motel: the rooms are big, the beds really big and everything else is well appointed. The desk staff is very friendly and helpful, and gave great recommendations for dinner and breakfast. And in a town with no cell phone nreception, free wifi is really appreciated.

We wanted to have a nice night out while we visited our family. We went to Negri's for appetizers and drinks and returned to our room.
