Friendly staff, great rooms

The only thing missing from the rooms is a microwave. Otherwise, it's a clean, comfortable room in a great location. The staff is always friendly. Breakfast is great, and it includes hot food like scrambled eggs, sausage and pancakes. I stay often when I'm working in Sonoma, and it's always pleasant.

Great value for what you get

Our room was very large with a king bed and small sitting area with a TV in both. We had a wood burning fireplace (though there was a downdraft problem the night we were there), a small balcony, a large jacuzzi bathroom, a Keurig, small fridge and microwave. The bed and pillows were comfortable. There's a nice courtyard with seating and outdoor table gas fireplaces!

Gem of a hotel

I loved. Every minute here, the staff pleasant and helpful, the room was big and well furnished and to top off it off they offer a great laundry. This hotel is walkable to Sonoma town square with all the bars and restaurants, with a whole foods opposite it's in a good position.

One night stay in Sonoma

I spent one night in Sonoma, and I found this hotel to be great. It's not a super fancy hotel, but it was very clean, and the staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpful.

Sonoma Trip

Great stay overall. Best incentive for staying here is the location! For that said the price is cheap. Stay within the plaza and you technically don't need to drive to be near tastings (obviously not all), great food, and a sense of community. There are definitely nicer and more star associated hotels that we can afford but for what its worth, best value for location. Overall relatively clean too. Nice staff.

Book early. We booked 1 day prior and pick the 2nd floor instead of ground.

Holiday Cheer Abounds!

You can't ask for a better Sonoma-central location. This lovely hotel is perfect for relaxing between exploring downtown Sonoma's extraordinary restaurants and shops (within easy walking distance) and at the surrounding wineries. And dog friendly, too!

The Hotel is Well Located

Do not show up even a minute late for breakfast, you will see the staff quickly putting things away. Even if you show up on time (before 10 am), they will clear the food away at 10 am, whether you have begun eating or not. I was taken aback by the lack of knowledge of the City of Sonoma by the front desk staff. The hotel itself is clean and well situated.

Great Location

We arrived early becuase we were taking a wine tour bus and told the staff we parked our vehicle in the hotel parking lot which they said was not a problem. After the tour we checked in and the room was nice and had a fireplace with wood provided. The bathroom was also nice and the hotel has a "clean" television remote which I had not seen before. The free breakfast was just ok and not much variety. The best thing about the hotel was the location and it is an easy walk to the Sonoma Plaza.

Mother and daughter get away

My daughter and I don't get time often enough just to be the two of us. We thought we would try a place near the center of Sonoma. The Inn was perfect for us! Can't wait tp go again.
