    « Wait until the hotel is renovated before staying here »

    Terrible stay. Worker in the next room was pounding away in late afternoon. The TV didn't work, the shower didn't work, the room still smelled of smoke from the fires. Breakfast was poor and the room was so noisy with the TV blaring that you had to shout to talk to your tablemate. Staff was rude on check-out. Will not stay here again until things are fixed, even though it is the most convenient hotel for my visit.

    « Average property, neighborhood, rooms, breakfast »

    Property pictures are typical of these places - reality is different - not so great in this case. The property is not rundown or anything but it does not live up to BW Plus standards if there is one. It is a big property but quite old - the rooms are pretty old and this place needs update badly. We got 2 double queen suite and it smelled like some laundry powder through out our one night stay - glad we just went there to sleep and left early next AM. Breakfast is usual carb/calorie laden stuff - they have a pancake machine which confirms all of the machine food offerings at the breakfast. Cereals, oat meal, fruit slices (not bad), juices, donuts, etc. are offered. Carpets are not clean, the overall place needs a lot of TLC. Wouldn't stay again - not for the price we paid.

Also if your stay at other locations sign up for the rewards as you earn points here an can use for free nights. the breakfast is included an good here.

    « A great recovery »

    My wife had eye surgery scheduled early on March 7 so we decided to stay here the night before rather than spend two hours driving up that morning. Our check in was fast and friendly, and our room was immaculate and very nicely appointed. The room looked out over the pool and a very pretty courtyard, and the bed was excellent. We returned for breakfast after the surgery, and of the numerous Best Westerns we have stayed at, both the breakfast room and the breakfast itself were the best we have experienced. Various cereals, hot oatmeal, pastries, juices, eggs, bacon, and two firsts: biscuits and gravy (delicious treat), and an instant pancake machine. As much as we enjoyed our stay, it was all the more amazing given that only a few months ago the disastrous Sonoma County fire had been burning right up to the hotel. The hotel is an oasis in the midst of the surrounding devastation, and we are happy to have stayed there.

    « Dirty Hotel an things need repair »

    Not a great stay Room looked ok at first walk in the saw black grease stains on bed an back of closed door Bathroom fan sounded like it was ready to explode Bath heated worked however smelled like it was ready to catch on fire Bath floor had glitter all over Needless to say for $200 a night I wish I'd stayed elsewhere!!! I chose it's location due to proximity to local airport Actually checked out an hour early just to get out of room I only had four hours sleep but just felt uncomfortable an unsafe there

    « Love this hotel »

    I have stayed at this hotel 6 or 7 times in the past 3 months for work. Shauna who checks me in the in the evening and Abel (sp?) who checks me out in the morning are very friendly and helpful. Abel even found a loaner laptop charger for me when I forgot mine at home. The rooms are comfy with a mini-fridge (with 2 complimentary bottles of water) and a microwave. There is a clock radio with mp3 ports next to the bed and lots of outlets next to the bed. The free breakfast is the best I have seen at a hotel with pancakes, bacon or sausage, cooked eggs, oatmeal, yogurt, lots of fresh fruit and more. They even have a topping bar for your oatmeal, yogurt or pancakes with over 12 toppings to make them yummier. There are lots of healthy options if you are trying to go low calorie for breakfast. Make sure you sign up for BW Rewards before arriving. Rewards members get a nice welcome gift at check-in that includes microwave popcorn, a snack bar, candy and a wine opener. the hotel has a nice central courtyard with pretty trees and the pool area.

    We ended up wrecking our car andx had to extend our stay with our dogs. The staff was extremely helpful and made this stressful situation much easier to deal with! They made sure we were able to stay inn the same room and made check a breeze! The breakfast was okay, they did have fresh fruit and that was great!

    This hotel is right next door to Starbucks. A great value and free warm breakfast daily. The front receptionist was very accommodating. We stayed here since we had an event at a winery 9 miles away. I would stay here again.

    « over priced for what it is »

    This is a very basic hotel in an area of much nicer hotels. Anywhere else this hotel would be a $70 to $80 per night hotel. There are much nicer Best Westerns in the area for around the same price. I booked the rooms without looking at the hotel first. It was very close to area we were working so it worked but in comparison to the Best Westerns it was way over priced. Staff and breakfast was good.

    « Why the high cost and why dogs? »

    We have stayed there for the past four years if not more. The hotel has had different names in those years from Holiday Inn to Best Western. The cost to stay was the highest ever this year. And being dog friendly is ok if THE DOGS DIDNT BARK ALL NIGHT!!!

    « Great value and location »

    Nice place. Enjoyed the breakfast (nothing fancy but still good). Clean room with comfortable bed. Internet was a little slow but Ok. Front desk person at checkin and checkout was outstanding. Only issue I had with room was the TV remote didn't work. Also, in fitness room, the treadmills face the mirror and the TV is behind the treadmills so you have to watch it through the mirror.

    « Horrible place »

    please never ever stay at this place. the room smelled like hell and someone started banging all the doors near my room at 3 am this was really scary. dont stay here especially if you going with kids.

    « Fantastic Pet Friendly paridise »

    After a string of bad hotel in the area while my fur baby was in the hospital, this hotel was such a breath of fresh air! The staff were all so friendly and helpful, the room was nice, the area safe, and breakfast was tasty. I recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice pet friendly place!

    « A great hotel despite fire devastation all around it! »

    Great service! Convenient design of rooms, with sweet little porches or balconies with table and chairs in a park-like setting (not affected by the nearby fires). Very pleasant hotel! Superb staff! Extraordinary breakfast! Best bacon I've ever had (light, crispy). Many choices. And Starbucks is next door. This was the Best Western Plus Wine Country Inn & Suites in Santa Rosa, CA. Highly recommended.

    « Great Experience! »

    I knew when I booked it this place it was on the midst of the burned zone, the hardest hit neighborhood of the Nor Cal fire storms. The room is fresh and clean. Lots of fresh paint. I am sure they had their hands full with fire clean up from smoke damage. The exterior has ruins on the back side across the street of the KMart Store and what appears to be a motel on the 101 side. I do not smell and smoke at all and I have the sense of a beagle. It has been raining though. I am glad to bring my dollars to this neighborhood and the hotel was great. Wine Cou try is open!

    « Friendsgiving »

    This was a trip that had been planed for months. However, the hugs Tubbs fire had burned through the entire area surrounding The BW Plus Wine Country Inn & Suites.With all the devastation from the fire around them the entire motel staff had done an incredible job of getting the motel in tip top shape as well making an incredibly welcoming environment. My wife and I have stayed here several times before and I believe it just gets better with every stay. And again, with all that had gone on around them, this may have been our best stay yet.

    « Support this area »

    The area of Santa Rosa was very hard hit during the recent wild fires. We booked before the fires but decided to still go stay at the Best Western since it was still open. The hotel itself is fine. We were very glad that we went. The staff was incredibly nice and accommodating. The breakfast was phenomenal. It was a full breakfast not a continental breakfast. You are about 35 minutes from any winery. The price you cannot beat in the area. Overall a great place to stay.

    « One Night Stay »

    2nd time stayed here in the last few months. The first time was before the fire storm and the last time was after the firestorm. In the first stay we had a second floor room with a balcony overlooking the garden area and the second stay we had a first floor room with a patio next to the swimming pool. Both stays we had no noise, tasty breakfast, comfortable room. On our second stay we parked in front of our room, and our room was located close to the breakfast room. We always make reservations a week or two before arrival, and try to arrive at the hotel between 2 & 3PM (to avoid the commute traffic). And our goal is to checkout between 9 & 10AM. All staff were friendly, accommodating and strived to make the hotel clean, comfortable and have the guest glad that they stayed here.  They succeed with us.

    « Bathrooms need updating in Pet rooms. »

    This hotel was quite nicely decorated in the sleeping area, but the bathroom was very dated and very dirty. Years of mopping detritus had accumulated in the corners of our bathroom. The fixtures, tub, etc., were old and grungy. The rest of the hotel was fine, and especially so since it survived the fires.

    3
    « Not as expected »

    No bathroom products, window screen missing, room not ready had to use hotel bathroom to get ready for a wedding. We would probably not stay there again. Although the location worked well for the event we were attending.

    « Should be renamed: Worst Western Minus »

    Booked this 6 weeks in advance as part of a weekend holiday with my best friend and his wife, who I rarely see as I live in another country. My husband and I drove from Seattle to Woodland in 10 days and did it nomadically (no bookings, just found places when the sun went down) and out of all the motels and inns we stayed in (which were at the range of $85-120 ? we're not picky travelers), this was by far the most expensive we've stayed in. Unfortunaty, it was also the worst, specially for the wopping price of $235!! As you can imagine, we had high expectations. When we checked in, the duty manager, although was very nice, seemed to not be aware of our booking. We then asked if we were in the system, she concurred! She proceeded to ask me if I knew what kind of room I got and I had to look thru my email to find it. My husband, then again, asked if we were on the system or not because she was asking all these questions and seemed to still noy be aware of our reservations. But she still said yes, we were in the system! Then later on comments that she had written down my first name as my last name ? after I had spelled out my last name to her and shown her my ID! This was the very first thing I did when I came to the counterpart to check in. Further, when later asked for further Information on the phone, she kept replying with an ?uh-huh,? which really didn't really bother me too much, but as I work in Customer Service found it very unprofessional, especially since she was the duty manager. Breakfast I found okay. My friend said it was like prison food, but (1) ive never been to prison so I wouldn't know and (2) it's not the worst I've had. Room was also disappointing. The white areas were grey. The lights flickered. The balcony light did not work. The complimentary shampoo/conditioner bottles were there, but all EMPTY! But the bed, pillows and sheets were okay. Location is close to a lot of local places to eat. We went to Cooperage Brewery to hang out and it had a very good, chill vibe. But thats for a separate review.

    « Dated but is a Great Value »

    This is my second full week staying at this location. The manager and three front desk ladies have always been kind and helpful with my check in and check out stay. I chose this location for value and its amenities. After speaking with the Manager, he was able to work with my daily schedule. In my chosen career, I stay in hotels weeks at a time, and he was able to accommodate my needs. The breakfast bar has cereal, branded yogurt, hot breakfast like eggs and sausages, and fresh fruit like pineapple! I enjoy the replenished fresh fruit. This hotel has a workout room and is kept clean and tidy. They have a workout room worth working out in, and that has plenty of equipment and space for three people to feel comfortable . The rooms are dated, and sometimes there are carpet pulls and staining. However, this hotel is always booked with the working class statue. I look forward to spending this entire work week at home away from home.

    « Wow what a room »

    We needed a room for a family of 5. This room was the most expensive one on our tour around California however it was a treat for us after being cooped up in a car together. Lots of space for us all to not be on top of each other. Very clean and a hot and tasty breakfast that satisfied us all. The room has a spa tub inside the room. Not sure why a room that puts up 6 people would have a tub in the living room but that's what it has. Might be more appealing if my kids were not with us. Nice to park right up at the door and unload but if you stay upstairs there is no lift for the suitcases. The person at the desk was a little short with us but after visiting the McDonald's and dollar store for laundry soap we determined it was the local normal. Not rude just matter of fact and not willing to smile at all. I say the cons are not having a laundry available for guests however there was a laundry place within 10 minutes to take care of your needs.

    « Reasonable & clean »

    Returning from The coast, we decided it would be convenient to stay in Santa Rosa. We had stayed in Napa the night before but wanted to get over to Somoma. Staying in Santa Rosa BW was fine not quaint but regular.

    « needs work »

    the room had dirty looking rugs with a huge stain as you entered room. outlets in vanity area and on wall near bed would not hold a plug and when we complained they only fixed one. When three women are staying in a room, there are a lot of hair dryers and it was very frustrating. The breakfast was sufficient but when we told the person in charge of the room that one toaster was not working, she shrugged her shoulders and walked away. ????????

    « Relaxing Stay »

    Very nice place. Rooms & grounds were well kept. Hotel staff were very friendly & helpful since I asked for a earlier check in time. I had to drop off my car at the dealership at 1pm. they let us check in right after that it made for a nice afternoon in a comfortable room instead of the car dealership. Thanks

    Our room was wonderful...and they allowed our sweet dog to stay as well. It is clean and the people working there are so very friendly. Their breakfast was good too! Our son went swiminng in the beautiful pool...very nice. Sadly, I forgot my iPad in our room. When we arrived home we phoned and spoke to Kiera who works in the office...right away she said she has the iPad there in the office and the very next day she mailed it back to me.She was wonderful..I received my iPad in no time. I want to thank them so very much for doing that! I will recommend this Best Western to all who go to Santa Rosa...thanks again for everything! Vikki

    « Hardly a Best Western Plus, more basic Best Western »

    Stayed one night for work and the late hour I arrived must have meant I got the worst room in the house. Rooms are clean inside and neat but outside looks like a prison block with big heavy doors and no windows. You can hear eveything that happens in other rooms and when they cleaned the room above me, it sounded like an elephant charging back and forth across the room. Beakfast was what you generally get in a hotel like this. Staff in the breakfast room and at front desk were fine - not overly friendly but not rude either. Gym was very basic. It did look like there were some "better" rooms that had views over the pool. Maybe ask for that if you have to stay here.

    « Short wine tasting tour trip »

    Great place to use as a place to do a short wine tasting tour they are located off the highway easy access to both Sonoma and napa counties. a tasting room is located on the other side of the highway from a tasting room to start. Then many other vine yards are near by. Killer taxes though residents should do something about that. great breakfast though. Cool self serving pancake maker!!!

    « First time at Best Western Plus »

    This was a very nice hotel. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. We were on the first floor and there was a nice patio outside of our room. It had one of the better breakfasts I have had at a hotel. Staff was very helpful. Not a lot of places to eat dinner nearby but close to the interstate.

    « Friendly professional staff »

    I come to the area frequently and each time I enjoy myself here. The staff treat guests extremely well and it's always clean, comfortable, and any needs are met right away. Breakfast has lots of variety so it's hard to get bored by eating the same thing day after day.

    « Comfortable Clean »

    This is a nice hotel to stay the night during a wine tasting event or passing through. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bathroom is slightly dated however it is clean. The t.v. is small but it is a flatscreen and they offer a lot of channels. The fitness room is small

    « Mobility accessible suite! a comfortable room »

    Room was very large and excellent for my husband's wheelchair. We had the 2-room mobility accessible suite that included a pull-out sofa bed. Plenty of turn-around space for him and a fun sofa bed for my 10-year old daughter who loves adventures.

    « Definitely Surprised »

    I gave five stars not because it is a five star place but because they took a 3 star motel and improved upon it. I was skeptical when we pulled in, but was pleasantly surprised. While the doors are exterior the place still feels safe. The doors have a deadbolt and chain lock and the patio sliding door also has a chain lock if you are on the ground level. All room have patios or decks that open out onto a beautiful courtyard and pool. Various areas are quite shaded throughout the day. The motel is conveniently located near HWY 101, Applebees, Kohl's, and Starbucks. The rooms are nice and large. We had a king size bed and still had plenty of room for bikes and suitcases. There is a microwave and mini fridge in the room which is really nice. There is also a coffee maker.

    « VERY nice »

    We stay here anytime we go to Santa Rosa. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable. This time we did not like the breakfast eggs. They were individual little omlettes and tasted terrible. If you are staying in S.R. stay here.

    « Comfortable and clean »

    Handy to freeway, nearby eating and shopping. Registration was quick and front desk staff were very friendly. Our room was quite dated but was adequate for our 3 day stay. Parking was available right outside the room. The bed was reasonably comfortable but the pillows weren't really to our liking. Our room was to the back of the hotel and it was very quiet at night. Breakfast was good and the staff kept everything well stocked and tables cleaned up as soon as people left. I felt the price was a little on the high side but not outrageous.

    « After the wedding »

    Location in Santa Rosa is fine, close to the highway. Our room was comfortable for one night, containing two queen beds, a pullout and a separate spa tub. Check in at 3 was a problem for us, coming in for a wedding which was at 4. We ended up changing in the public bathroom which was suboptimal. The room was available before 3 and we were able to do our final touch ups there. This was probably the best BW I've ever stayed at.

    « Wine Country Inn & Suites »

    Excellent amenities and friendly, helpful staff that went well above and beyond the basics. I stayed 5 nights, and would highly recommend this place. It was clean and comfortable, and the hot breakfasts were a nice plus. The grounds were pretty and well-maintained. There were many places to sit outdoors, and the rooms had outdoor patios as well.

    « Clean & Comfortable but WAY Overpriced »

    For $200 per night I was expecting more. Honestly, this looks like a former Motel 6. The rooms are per usual, nothing special, that open to the outside which you may or may not like depending on your taste. Certainly makes it more convenient to get to your room from your car but certainly not as safe & quiet as a hotel with interior entryways. There was no spa/hot tub and we never had a chance to use the pool or onsite fitness room. Nor did we get to partake in the free breakfast as it didn't open until 6:30am and we needed to leave at 5:30am for the Santa Rosa Marathon. There were several marathon runners staying here and it's unfortunate that they didn't see to open the breakfast bar earlier. Finally, and this may be a nit, but I guess I'm spoiled with my hi-def TV at home because the picture quality of the TV in the room was awful. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable but $200/nt just seems way overpriced.

    « dark dingy room with badly spotted carpet »

    The room carpet had a large oil or automotive grease spot. It also generally needed a good cleaning. The pillows were second rate. The room was dark and dingy. The breakfast was very second rate and the serving area was badly picked over. The room acoustic were poor. We could hear every movement in the room above us.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    I arrived at this hotel on Wednesday and have enjoyed our stay. We have a king suite with jacuzzi tub. It's a really nice spacious room. I love having a patio off the bedroom and living room which looks out to the pool. The pool is nice and clean. Breakfast is nice, too. They have a variety of options, including healthy items. They have cookies in the lobby as an added touch. I have to say it's been a very nice stay. The bed is nice and comfortable. I've slept really well. For the price, it's really a good deal. I highly recommend the king suite though.

    « A real dump stay away from this place. »

    I had made a reservation to stay here for early August 2017. When we arrived they told me i had booked a smoking room. I said that is impossible and asked for a non smoking room. The attendant told me she had tried to call me and let me know that they could give me a non smoking room earlier in the day as they had a guest that wanted a smoking room. However, my phone records did not show that i received any calls from this location. I think rather they gave away my non smoking room and then tried to cover it by saying i had a smoking room. The room stunk, it made all my clothes stink, not just smoke smell but mold. It stunk so bad i had to wash all my clothes when i arrived home the next day. Do not say here. This is the 2nd best western i have stayed at in Santa Rosa and they are both dumps and scandalous in how they treat their guests.. When i checked out they did not ask me about my stay, i'm sure they already knew. This is not a best western plus don't stay here.

    « Nice, clean, quiet. Minus 1 star for poor tv quality. »

    We stayed here August 4th and 5th 2017 for the Lazy Bear event a few miles away in Guerneville. We had room 234. We always ask for a second floor room because I am a light sleeper and have been in too many hotels where you can hear noise from above. The room was on the small side but comfortable and clean. The furnishings were all in good shape. Nothing looked worn or tattered as we have found in some hotels. We had a balcony with table and chairs outside a sliding glass door. It seemed nice on the balcony overlooking lovely landscaping but we did not have the time or inclination to linger there. The room was also adequately quiet. I did hear an ill behaved child running by our door at one point but otherwise we were undisturbed. The king bed was on the firm side but very comfortable with four pillows. The bathroom was clean and adequate but the tub was basic and wasn't worth bothering with unless your a small child. The sink was outside the room with toilet and tub. The included breakfast was adequate as well but nothing exceptional. For me, the hot eggs, bacon and sausage were inedible as guests laid the handles, (the part everybody touches), of the serving spoons directly on top of the food whic turns the food into a Petri dish. This is a common problem wth buffets. The general public apparently doesn't know better? I guess it would have helped if the hotel provided plates on which to set the serving utensils. The pancake machine was great, though. You push a button and two pancakes come out the side. Cold cereal, yogurt, and assorted baked goods were available. My biggest complaint about room 234 was the Phillips flat screen tv. It did not appear to be high def at all and, in fact, the picture seemed a little blurry. It was also stuck on "letterbox" on many channels. I picked up the remote to check the tv settings but Best Western uses their own remotes with the tv's that claim to be more hygienic than a regular tv remote. This remote does not give you access to settings so you can't adjust the resolution and whoever set it up originally, apparently did not set it for true high def. Also, you can not use the hdmi. We travel with portable devices that can connect to tv's through the hdmi. With many hotels, this is no problem but the Best Western remote at this Best Western does not allow a guest to do this so no Netflix or Roku or other modern options many of us have at home and some of us travel with. I would love to see more people mention this in their reviews on Trip Advisor as I think it will be more and more important as we get used to alternatives to just the cable or satellite options hotels offer. Hotels should be attempting to give their guests access to the minimum of what guests have at home.

    « Not a Plus hotel, at all. »

    We booked this hotel for the Ironman Santa Rosa, based on it's proximity to the Courthouse Square where most of the festivities took place. It is an easy drive to get from this hotel to the square. But that's where the pros of this hotel end. We've stayed at many Best Westerns, preferring the Best Western Plus, and have had mostly very good experiences. We've even begun showing some loyalty that way, looking for Best Western as our first choice when we travel. This hotel is NOT a Plus, and I'm not sure how Best Western allows it advertise as such. The rooms open to the outside. The pool is very small (and noisy). There is no hot tub. The rooms are small and reek of chemicals used to cover the fact that these rooms have previously been smoked in. At check-in we listened to the clerk talk on the phone to someone asking to be able to get a room "for a few hours" (she told her none were available). When we inquired about a late checkout for our last day (a Sunday), which would be the morning after the Ironman race (and we might have wanted to sleep in), we were told to "check that morning, and we can tell you then." Um, what? I have to wake up, check and see if I can get a late check-out and then go back to sleep to enjoy it? We got up early and left instead. On top of all this, you pay a premium for rooms in this area, so it's extra frustrating to pay mid-range hotel prices for such crappy accommodations. We do intend to return to Santa Rosa next year, but we will NOT be rebooking this hotel ever again. In fact, our experience here has made us leery of booking Best Westerns, as we thought the 'Plus' here meant it would measure up to what we've experienced in the past (the St George Abbey Inn being the high bar for a Plus hotel). Very disappointed, and would not recommend to travelers unless you're okay overpaying for a low-end motel.

    Racially bigoted staff. Insulted my Significant Other who happens to be Native American, insinuating that she did not belong in the dining room and insisting on seeing her room key. Insulted her in front of other guests. TERRIBLE! She is a very beautiful, well educated teacher, and a sophisticated woman of color. You people are beyond the pale. We checked out immediately after I expressed my displeasure to everyone in the lobby who would listen!

    « Average Over priced Hotel »

    This facility is ok for the run of the mill motels. Nothing special. Rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast is the generic free breakfast offered by most hotels. The breakfast staff was ill equipped to deal with the Sunday morning rush, but they did their best. The tv reception was awful. Will note that this was the Sunday after the Ironman so the hotel was full. In summary, this facility is acceptable but,in my opinion, over priced. Regarding a review made on 6/20 by Ken B. This facility does not have an indoor pool. In my opinion average motel with a big price tag.

    Stayed here for one night: liked the courtyard with it well maintained garden. In the garden there is a sitting area where one can meet with friends or simply sit and watch the birds. Our room was on the 2nd floor, it was very clean, the shower was powerful, we slept soundly and we were not troubled by any noise.   The morning breakfast was quite good, the staff refilled dish trays before trays became empty. They made the scramble eggs which were quite good, plenty of ingredients included in the eggs. I had three cups of coffee as they offered real cream not the powdery stuff.  The breakfast had a steady flow of customers but the staff kept everything clean and responded immediately to requests.

    Checked in a little late on our stay, around 9 pm Had to wait a little while for front desk agent Kurra, when she returned she was very apologetic and helpful.

And she obviously loves her job and what she is doing. Thank you Kurra for making it a great stay.

    I had a staff member stay here overnight, in a typical room- nothing fancy. However, the staff member was having difficulty due to the card we gave her to pay for expenses and even locked her keys in the car and couldn't get to the rest of her things, including alternate payment. The GM, was so nice and so helpful, he allowed her to check in and rest while the locksmith was on his way to open the door. As a Gov facility, there is usually no one available to help with situations that occur after hours except calling the boss at home. I didn't hear about this until the next day. Everything was handled there in the moment, thanks to Todd's patience! We would definitely book here again- Thanks again, Casandra & Janice.

Again someone was in the room. This time the front desk staff didn't waste anytime and upgraded us immediately to a suite. Nice surprise and we appreciate the desk staff for making the decision quickly. Later the staff told us the people in the rooms didn't check out as expected and no one followed up.

We had great service from the gentleman that checked us in and out and helped us finally get our bill straightened out and 3-4 calls and a few emails. The lady I spoke to at the front desk on the phone earlier in the week provided no customer service other than taking our money for the room and had zero concern for the situation we were dealing with and her attitude and tone made it very clear how important and valued we were to BW. Did I mention how I tripped on a loose and broken tile on the staircase and how I landed in a puddle of water left mid staircase by whoever did the power washing before we arrived?

    Santa Rosa is a busy place. It's been around a long time and as such and as with most California cities there are a lot of old trees and shrubs (big shrubs) which can make finding buildings difficult. So if this a location you're interested in be prepared to drive slow and look twice, if your GPS says you're there you are. The Wine Country Inn is another of Best Western's great properties. In door pool, work out room, and of course great rooms and beds. The area around the hotel is chocked full of amazing things to see and places to visit. As always I carb up the morning of the Games and this hotel has a wonderful breakfast. Everyone should travel to northern California so much to see and do. And when in the Santa Rosa area put the Wine Country Inn on you list of places to stay.

    We stayed here twice, a week apart. The property is old and is being renovated. The interior of our room had been updated but the outside just looked tired.

Probably would select another motel in the area if in the area again.

She almost seemed bored. When we checked in and went to our rooms our friends room smelled of cigarette smoke so we asked to be moved. We all were moved to the 2nd floor...no elevator and no help with getting our luggage up the stairs...to find that the landing to the rooms was under construction with tile partially installed. Our room was not very clean. We couldn't wait to check out the next morning. This is our first experience with staying at Best Western and did not leave a good impression.

    Pro: (1) >30 restaurants within a mile drive, a dozen within a short walk. Fast food to gourmet. Most rooms have a patio overlooking the pool area (too cold to swim :-( ), very restful, (3) breakfast includes cheese omelets or cheesy scrambled eggs - much nicer that the typical plain variety. (4) Depending o TOD easy on and off of US 101 freeway,(5) very quiet rooms despite closeness of US 101 - NO road noise! Con: Actual entrance hidden in foliage and hard to find. WiFi 5G not available (faster and less crowded than typical 2G WiFi)). Even WiFi 2G does not work in breakfast room (wake to cartoons). Rooms need a night light for us old folks (2-3 bathroom visits in the pitch dark).

    « Disappointed with this Best Western »

    We are Best Western club members and often stay at Best Western brand inns and hotels. However in this case, we were disappointed with the cleanliness of the room, the monitoring of the continental breakfast area (all three coffee pots were empty when we went to get coffee, no napkins, no eggs, etc.,etc., and no staff in sight until another guest went and found someone), the lack of caring and friendliness in the staff, and the value of the the price paid for the lodging. We stayed at a beautiful inn in Oregon with great views of the ocean, which was very clean, had a well-stocked and comfortable continental breakfast room, coffee and tea available all day, and an extremely friendly and gracious staff for much less per night.

    « Anywhere else in the country this would be a way overpriced motel »

    There are always limited locations in Santa Rosa. Usually Best Westerns are fairly decent, but not in this case. I do not know how this hotel achieved a plus status. The hotel looks pretty run down. There are patches in various places around the outside of the buildings. The hallways are very dirty with spills everywhere. The hallway outside my room seems to be rotting under the tile and it is collapsing in several places (see photo). The room smells old and musty. It has a sliding door so that has been open since I arrived. I think the only thing driving the room prices is the location. It is way overpriced.

    When we drove up to the hotel, we were disappointed by it's drab appearance. The check in was very friendly, but we discovered that our room was on the second floor and there was no elevator. There is some kind of renovation being done to the elevator and exterior flooring. Room was very sparse, dull, drab and very stuffy.

Changed room had a damaged towel bar, which they did fix promptly. No towels were changed on our 2nd day, nor coffee service replenished.

The front desk personnel were agreeable and moved us to a second floor room. We had a very restful night on a very comfortable bed. Also made use of the relatively new treadmill in the fitness room.

    In an effort to save money on lodging during our visit to Napa we were excited to find a reasonably priced Best Western only 30 minutes from Calistoga! However- we were pretty disappointed. Given the proximity to such a beautiful region, we expected a little more. The room instantly had a damp smell and really poor lighting. The beds had what felt and looked like a curtain, that was so uncomfortable that we took it off, leaving us to cozy up with a sheet. The towels smelt a little off, but can't place the smell. The hotel was outdoor entry, which is fine, we just don't prefer that. The soap barely lathered. Luckily we were barely in the room, more of a place to put our things and sleep- so if that's your purpose and you're looking to save money- this may work for you!

    For the price, I anticipated better sheets (which were worn, rough and threadbare), pillows (which were lumpy and old), towels (again old and thin); and the small screen television mounted high on the wall was uncomfortable to watch; there was a lack of decent toiletries; limited fresh air and natural light (only source in a dark room was the slider facing the outdoor table); a very small room as my husband and I had to keep stepping aside to prevent bumping into one another; and in dire need of an update. Am still tired from my lack of sleep (actually no sleep) on Saturday night. At over $225 AAA rate a night, way overpriced. Have stayed, many times, at the four star hotel Omni San Francisco in a lovely, spacious, well-appointed room with comfortable bedding, towels, upscale surroundings (available today for about $20 more, standard king room). Or the Sentinel in Portland. The Best Western Plus Wine Country Inn & Suites in Santa Rosa was not a "Plus" ... more of a Motel 6! Will never come back.

    I booked this property at the last minute after seeing some updated reviews for my original hotel. I was not disappointed with my choice. This hotel has been modestly updated, is affordably priced and CLEAN. Even the towels were above expectation for the price point. I was in town for one night to run the Santa Rosa Marathon so while I didn't get the breakfast, I had a great night sleep, fast wi-fi, friendly staff and overall, felt safe staying alone as a female traveler. If I run this race next year, I will return to the Best Western.

    We stopped here in the last night of our 6 day road trip. We discovered Best Westerns on this trip and decided to round out the adventure on theme. We've now become connoisseurs of Best Westerns so we can easily compare amenities. The room was nice, freshly remodeled and clean. I even gave my small children a bath in the tub, which I rarely do in a hotel. We liked the unlimited supply of soap and shampoo, though were sad to see that we only had 2 towels. The breakfast set up was the best we've seen, with warm items and even a pancake making machine which was grounds for excitement. The pool closed at 10 and so we only had a minute to enjoy it. There was no jacuzzi.

    This was our second time staying at this motel and again we enjoyed the clean rooms, quite surroundings and the pool area. Unfortunately, we had the same experience with the breakfast area as the comment on July 25, 2016 from Christie L. We arrived at the breakfast room at 9:00am to find no hot food was left. The nice lady maintaining the area had to keep telling people that more was coming. After waiting 20 minutes a tray of hash browns came out and a 10 minutes later some omelets. Both were gone immediately by the other people that were waiting. The food should be replaced before all of it is gone.

    « Overpriced for an Average Hotel »

    Had an engagement in Healdsburg last week and this was the closest half way decent choice. It is just an average/typical Best Western property imo but definitely pricey since it happens to be near Sonoma wine country. Very basic and dated rooms and bathroom. The best part was the morning breakfast which did have plenty of hold/cold options. Plus very easy access to hwy. 101. Not a big Best Western fan!

    There are quite a few Best Westerns in the area. We have tried 4 of them. Last year we discovered this one and have gone back a few times. It is clean, comfortable, convenient to wine country and great restaurants. It is right off Highway 101. It is also very quiet - be sure to ask for a room on the 2nd floor. The staff is very nice and friendly. I do not understand the 1 review that said this motel was aging. I believe it is the newest BW in the area and is in fine condition. The nightly rate is a real bargain compared to other motels in the area.

    « Clean rooms, comfortable beds »

    The surrounding area is not especially nice, but good access to the freeway. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Small odd shaped bed pillows. Friendly staff. Family friendly hotel. Lots of parking. The amenities were limited. The sofa in the room had flat cushions, making it uncomfortable. Bathrooms were very generic. The breakfast had a lot of choices, but not all items were refreshed during the posted breakfast times and nobody wiped down any of the tables, so guests were looking for napkins to wipe down their own table. The cookies at check-in were a nice touch. Jacuzzi tub in the suite actually shared a space with the kitchenette, so did not use.

    « Ok for a short stay »

    Spent one night at the property while in the area touring. Ok experience, and decent value, but not sure we would want to stay for a long period. Staff very friendly, but while clean the facilities are getting a bit old. Looks like maintenance is being kept up, but can't do much about 'old'. And this is the type of property where a lot of trades folks stay when in the area. Lots of pickups in the parking lot - not that there were any issues. Relatively quiet, and rooms were reasonably sound proof, if a bit warm. Room air conditioner was to cold to sit near, but not terribly effective in cooling the room. We were on the back side, so no street noise, BUT there is a Goodwill recycling center on the lot behind the property so it might be noisy if you stayed in during the day. This is a two story property with NO elevators, so if that is an issue be sure to ask for a ground floor room

    « Overpriced, but convenient location »

    Mixed review for this location of a normally great chain. While we did not find the staff to be very friendly, attentive, helpful, etc (except the nice lady in the morning at check out) and finding it was a little awkward, it was a little better inside. The room was clean, bed was comfortable, handy microwave/fridge/coffee pot/iron and had a lovely little patio with a table to enjoy the beautiful weather. The wi-fi, while free, was a bit unreliable, but they did provide a decent breakfast selection which was helpful. The location was what we needed to attend a remote wedding, but i wouldn't stay there again for the same price. It is right near the main highway so there are things to see and places to eat right nearby.

    The room was tidy but clean at all. For instance the TV remote had a nasty stickiness, like old soda spill, on it. The staff at was not caring and had poor attitude when they were informed of the lack of cleanliness of the room. Nothing was done.

    « Nice One Night Stay in King Size Room with Patio, Close to Pool »

    We were going to a winery event and wanted a room for the night. Given that the event was the same week-end as the major Sonoma Car Races, it took a bit to find a place to stay in. Luckily the Best Western Plus Wine Country Inn and Suites had a king size room. We reserved several weeks in advance. The bed was comfortable and we slept well. The bed is a bit taller than some beds to sit on. Its the type of place where one can also park very close to the door of one's room. We had a first floor room. That is a nice feature. Our room also had a patio and a few steps away from the swimming pool area. We enjoyed morning coffee on our patio. There is a coffee and tea maker and supplies in the room. The room also had a comfortable sitting chair, microwave, refrigerator, and flat screen TV. We watched a movie on one of the TV channels after our winery event. The bathroom is on the smaller size, but its nice that the sink is separate from the bath room. We went to the breakfast room. They have a good variety of hot foods (egg, sausage, pancakes), and cold (cereal, yogurt, baked goods), juice, and coffee and more. As such, for a Best Western it is very good. It also has several tables in the breakfast room. Staff is good. We got checked in quickly and efficiently. While we enjoyed our stay for one night, the price we paid (most likely due to the Sonoma car races) was higher than I usually pay for this type of Best Western. As such, I have rated it average. If you get a better price, it would be a very good stay for Santa Rosa ara and is close to the 101 freeway entrance and exit. There is Free Wi-FI as well. The hotel landscaping is nice with some palm trees and other plants.

    We've been on a two week road trip with pleasant stays. However this place has horrible service. My husband was I'll so it start off with me having to haul three suitcases up the stairs because there is no elevator. My son has a disability and needed to use the pullout couch. Not only did they not help with the pullout setup, I had to go down to the desk to ask for a pillow. An hour later I went down again and they said they didn't have any extra pillows but they gave me a pillow case. ( I really think they didn't want to get off their butts to get one because they rolled their eyes when I asked.) Then low and behold later I realized the shampoo dispenser in the shower was empty and I was so fed up with their attitude, I used body wash! The room was large but the whole place doesn't feel particularly clean. I'm not one to make a scene but one more "I can't help you" and I'll scream!

    We stayed at a Best Western while visiting the Santa Rosa area. Have stayed at many Best Westerns in the past with few if any problems. While realizing these are not expensive hotels, we do expect the basic needs to be met. Have never had such a bad mattress - neither of us could sleep. In addition the parking lights shown into our room at night even with the shades drawn. The breakfast was self serve - nothing special.

    « Don't trust Plus »

    We were drawn in by "Plus" designation, but this property is miss-labeled. It is convenient to wine country, and compared to other properties, it probably is a good value. The problem is: noisy, construction workers, possibly homeless groups in parking lot next door, renovations in progress, and outside corridors accessible to anyone. The breakfast was mediocre usual fare, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, bacon, toast, yogurt, and cereals. Non fat milk not available. Get there early before construction crews arrive because most selections picked over by 7 a.m. The staff were helpful and doing the best they could do with an old motel that should be completely renovated.

    I checked in on 5/26/16 around 4:30pm. The young woman at the front desk gave me room 217. When I went to open the door, I opened it to find someone's purse open, with their luggage and other personal items inside their room. I called the front desk from outside the room to inform her that she gave me a room that was occupied. She told me to come back to get another key for a new room. The hotel property is very large, two story building & NO STAIRS! I was carrying 3 bags and my heavy suitcase, traveling alone. I put everything back in my car, drove to the lobby and got another key. Not once did she offer to come bring me the key, or have housekeeping open the door for me. In the process of going back and forth I dropped my phone somewhere on the property & it is now lost. Ended up having to pay for a new phone before going home. What a terrible experience

    « LESS THAN HONEST! »

    We were reeled into a multi-night BW stay during an extended road trip by an offer of a $50 gift card if we stayed at two or more different locations?only to be told when we tried to request the card that we somehow fell between a brief ?Spring? and ?Summer? promotional lull when it was not available to guests! This, despite the receptionists at two locations AND a front-desk placard telling us that we qualified! We think it was a blatant case of bait-n-switch consumer fraud, at worst?or misinformation, at best?and irritating enough to prompt us to book into the Holiday Inn and Hampton Inn (where we've always been satisfied) during our three upcoming summer trips. So, BW keeps its $50 gift card and we spend our $2,100 hotel budget elsewhere. Go figure. BW isn't that great, anyway?not nearly as nice as the competition, in terms of typical location, cleanliness, and service. We've had issues there with stale breakfast food and a lack of in-room necessities like clean towels and TP, so we're happily moving on. BEWARE of any "deals" offered by these scammers!

    A disappointment. We had a double queen room that was terribly crowded for space. We could not walk on one side of one bed, though it was not against the wall. Walking between the end of the bed & the desk was difficult if any one was sitting (even close to) at the desk-you could skinny through. Our grandson was with us & 3 people in that room was CROWDED! Sink was very high, I'm 5'0" & had to stand on tip toe to bend over sink. Breakfast was ok but not well monitored as our second morning there was NO coffee until someone went to desk. This was evident all 3 mornings as there was shortage of most foods by 8:00. On the plus side the beds were comfortable, room was clean. Staff were very nice, friendly, and helpful. Loved the little patio! The grounds were lovely & well maintained.

    This is a convenient location with a Starbucks and Applebee's within walking distance. The property was clean and comfortable, however the area for the bathroom sink is small. The bathroom (shower/toilet) itself is much bigger. We were in town for a function at Sonoma State and since we were only there one night, there was plenty room for two of us. I would ask for a suite if there had been more than two people in our party. The road that runs parallel to the 101 is easy to access and there are a lot of other restaurants within a few miles.

    We have stayed here many times over the past few years and have always been happy with our stay. This trip our reservation was not in the system, probably my fault as I had booked rooms at several different Best Westerns locations at the same time, and they were kind enough to find us a room in a very full motel. It looked like they may have been updating and or remodeling some rooms so inventory I am sure was tight on a Saturday night in the "Wine Country" of Sonoma and Napa areas. The front desk person, Cathy I believe, was wonderful in taking care of us. As was Maria the following morning. Breakfast was hot with an assortment of breakfast items.

    This hotel was OK. I did find that it was over priced in comparison with other hotels we stayed in the previous week. In our room, baseboard in closet was broken/crushed and not repaired. For a PLUS, seemed a little shabby. I DO find that BW pet rooms, generally, are often less appealing/clean/etc. than those for other travelers. It would seem that MORE effort at cleanliness would be in order, rather than less. At least, this one didn't smell bad.

    « Don't juge a book by It's Cover »

    My husband and I traveled to the area for his business. I booked this hotel online, I looked at the pictures of the rooms, and choose the king suite, it looked to nice and inviting! When we drove into the front of the hotel, It looked pretty run down, and I thought "what the heck did I get us in to?!" Walking into the lobby I could tell that was refurbished, and hoped the rest of the hotel was like this as well, and that the pictures of our room were accurate. THEY WERE! we walked into our room, it was clean, and neat, updated! A large Jacuzzi tub was just to the left as we walked in, there was a bar with a fridge, microwave and sink. The living room area is spacious with a couch and coffe table, there was a sliding glass door going straight out to the private patio with a table and 2 chairs. The master suite was in a separate area, which holds a king size bed (that had the cutest little towel art on it with a heart and swan made out of towels, kinda like you see on a cruise ship), another TV and a desk area, as well as a desk and sitting chair, there was a couple areas for luggage, a decent sized closet, and a bathroom with a toilet and shower as well as a separate bathroom sink. Nice decor, and crown molding. OH and there was a second sliding glass door off the master that had a 2nd private patio. We had a pool view, and could hear the fountains off in the distance, very relaxing. I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was after seeing the outbuilding looked older and outdated. If we are in the area again, we would stay here again! There is a Taco bell, Arbys, McDonald's, Gas station, Starbucks, and Khols all within walking distance.

    « Older Motel, Misleading Web Description, Will Not Return »

    My husband and I stayed here for one night on our way through Santa Rosa. We didn't stay in Geyserville because the reviews we read indicated we would be better off in Santa Rosa - wrong! This motel looks great via their web description and it's fairly pricey as well. It's a BW Plus so we thought we would be getting some first class BW treatments - also wrong. It's an old motel, and definitely needs some remodeling. For example, the security lock on our door (which leads outside to the back of the building) had been damaged so that once you managed to lock it you had a terrible time trying to get it open again. The bedding was flimsy, the sheets were thin and scratchy, the room furniture dated, there was an old musty smell to the room, the heater/ac worked but the controls were all scratched up..... We had just stayed at a Hampton Inn in Arcata and expected the same level of stay - very wrong indeed.

    « Pretty Good Value »

    The area isn't great but the hotel amenities make it more comfortable. The rooms themselves are comfortable but both times we stayed here we experienced problems - first time was a plumbing problem that caused the toilet to constantly overflow and the second was an electrical problem with the lamps that caused great concern and a restless night as no one showed up to address.

    « Tough to get right room »

    Took them 4 tries to get me a clean, non-smoking room. Would have gone to another hotel if they weren't all fully booked at that point. The lady at the front was friendly but before going to the 3rd room she checked it out for me, said it was clean and non-smoking, but as soon as I went it, the room smelled terrible. Will not come back here again if I can help it.

    Good service and breakfast. However beds are not comfy and facility could use an update. Never used the swimming pool and it looks warm and good. Nice and polite staff. Better with 2nd floor rooms. The location is good.

    Friendly staff and the room was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was better than we expected. The one complaint is that the hot water in the shower was inconsistent. We'd stay there again if we found ourselves in Santa Rosa again.

    « Wine Tasting Weekend »

    A group of girlfriends and I spent the weekend here in November in two of the beautiful suites. It was only a 20 minute limo drive to our wine tasting destinations in the Sonoma Valley. The suites were perfect for us, with the spacious living room area to gather in while getting ready to head to dinner in Downtown Santa Rosa. The staff was very friendly and we will definitely stay on future trips!

    « Dirty room »

    We paid 176.00 for a suite at this best western. The jacuzzi bath had pink slime and hair in the Jets. The floors looked as though they hadn't been swept or mopped and there was stuff spattered all over the wall behind the trash. Also there was dirt on the sheets when we pulled them back. ( photo below)I was super bummed that I wasted my hard earned money. The room has a nice layout for our family. It just needed a little more care. Very out dated and needed a good cleaning.

    Wonderful stay! Our suite was perfect to accommodate a gathering of friends. Rates are very reasonable , and the location is perfect for a day of wine tasting and an evening on the town. We'll definitely be back!

    « Santa Rosa Best Western »

    this hotel had much higher ratings than it deserved-- the room was very small for having 2 queen-sized beds in it, the bathroom was tiny and had a very low-flow shower head that made showering take longer-- took forever to get shampoo and conditioner out of longer hair, which meant longer showers. The bathroom was also not heated, which made for very cold bathing during 30-40 degree weather. The location is fantastic, and it was nice to have breakfast available, but having rooms opening out onto exterior hallways is not kid-friendly and this should be mentioned in the description. I know, it's a Best Western and isn't a luxury brand, but it felt more like a Motel 6-- disappointing even for Best Western.

    « Great People »

    This review is for the hotel, but mostly for Maria Garcia. The hotel itself is what youd expect from Best Western- clean and tight. What you dont usually get is exceptional customer service from an underpaid and underappreciated staff. There was no end to Ms. Garcia's going out of her way to make my stay as productive as possible. I needed an extra hour in the room- done. I needed to leave a car overnight- done. I needed to use the ice machine to fill a cooler- done. She, and the other staff at this place are great people and I hope management recognizes them as such. Im going to return here, not because I love the rooms (which were fine), but because great staff made my stay effortless. That's you Maria.

    The condition of the units and walkways are akin to the saying "lipstick on a pig". Deadbolts on the doors that don't latch, hallways filthy dirty and in need of repair. Issues with the remote control for the TV. Watered down coffee and orange juice for breakfast along with bacon that's so thin and tough it's hard to chew. Wouldn't stay there again!

    We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into our room. We rented a suite which was quite comfortable. It was well designed with a living area with couch, chairs, desk and TV plus an additional TV in the bedroom. Very nice 2 person jetted tub was a nice bonus. The rooms were clean and well appointed.

    « NON-SMOKERS WILL STILL SUCK UP SMOKE...!!! »

    We had a non-smoking room and the entire bathroom and sink area reeked -- not of old smoke, but new smoke coming from somewhere undetectable. Just ghastly. Yes, the hotel publicizes it is smoking and non, but if you hate secondhand smoke (yes, it kills), don't stay here. The ice machine worked but was half-broken, the toilet backed up (but Lucy swung into action when we called), breakfast was better than most BWs, no hot tub but a decent enough workout room. Just too bad about those smokers, who still don't know what a menace they are to the rest of the world working hard to stay alive.

    No other hotel for us in the area. The rooms are wonderful but it is the staff's consistently professional yet warm and personable attitudes that will bring us back again and again. It is not just a job for them. They care and will do whatever they can to help. It feels more like going "home" than to a hotel.

    « Good for what we needed »

    Stayed here for 2 nights while attending a wedding in Healdsburg. We were not in the room very much so all I can contribute is that the beds were comfortable, breakfast was good, location was good, I think there was a fast food restaurant close by. Our room had a small patio that lead out to the pool. I had booked this room way in advanced because of the harvest season was in full swing and all hotels in area were expensive. This was about middle of the road. The Santa Rosa airport was close by.

    « A nice surprise! »

    This was a sweet hotel just on the outside of Santa Rosa and the main airport. Although the rooms were fairly plain they had coffee and a fridge and a microwave. They were very clean and quiet. The towels were new and soft so the shower was a good one. Breakfast was a very nice surprise and included in the very reasonable price. A fully cooked spread with eggs, sausage and biscuits, hash browns and bacon. Along with the normal juices, toast, bagels, cereals and sweet rolls. The room was big, clean and filled by courteous staff. There was also an outdoor pool and a large fitness room. In all a good experience for a quick stay over. It was a 5 min ride to airport and the same to the historic district.

    Nice hotel for the money. We were expecting a much more resort like hotel based on the photos from the website but overall it was a pleasant experience. The location is a bit difficult to maneuver with traffic but we learned a few tricks and appreciated its proximity to restaurants, retail and freeway access.

    « Deluxe Place to Stay at a Great Price »

    Looking for a great hotel at a great price in the heart of wine country? This is it!! The room are meticulously clean; the staff fantastic and helpful; the grounds very nice. The free daily breakfast is much more than the basic continental breakfasts offered by most hotel chains. Breakfast offerings include fresh pancakes, two egg dishes, bacon, creamed beef gravy, yogurt, juices, hash browns, English muffins, bagels, and fresh coffee. This alone would safe a family of four at least $30 a day based on local restaurant prices, The hotel's location is perfect, Located one block from highway 101 approximately 20 minutes from vineyards in all directions, 20 minutes to the Russian River, 35 minutes to Pacific Ocean sights (Jenner, Bodega Bay), There are higher prices hotels in the area that don't offer what this one does,

    « Roomy Breakfast Room »

    I stayed overnight at this hotel and it was comfortable. Each room has patio with two chairs and a small table that overlooks the garden/swimming pool, depending on where your room is located. Aside from this, I was most impress with the breakfast room. There are plenty of tables that can accommodate a group of 4 or 5 people. There are additional tables outside if you feel incline to enjoy the weather. Hot breakfast and waffle maker are the two essentials that I look for, and this hotel has them.

    « Comfy! »

    The room we stayed in was spacious with sliding doors out to a patio that had a table and chairs. Nice size TV with good amount of channels, a mini fridge and microwave. Also as always BW front desk staff were great; Wifi is included in the hotel rate, 2 waters in the fridge as well as breakfast in the breakfast room. This may not have been the best "Plus" Best Western hotel we have stayed in because they usually have a more upscale feel to them but I felt the little extras I mentioned made it a comfortable and pleasant stay.

    « Not up to Best Western Plus Rating »

    This hotel is rated as a Best Western Plus, but we felt it fell short of that rating. The beds were not comfortable - the bed linens and towels were thin and in poor condition - the hotel feels cheap even though the décor is nice and the price is not cheap.

    « Dont let Exteriors deceive you »

    I have stayed at this hotel before and was not terribly impressed. My room was bottom floor by the street, it was loud and the room was old. I stayed again about 6 months later on a upstairs outer room and the difference was like night and day. Rooms upstairs had been recently remodled, nothing fancy but nice and clean and modern. My room had a lttle patio facing the inner court yard I believe the room was 242. Overall the quality and the price was good and the room was quiet. Breakfast was pretty good with a decent variety of items in a good amount of space to eat and get around. The exterior will fool you, but the inside is nice, don't judge this book by its cover.

    « Way overpriced! »

    Very old hotel. Room was musty smelling. Shower very difficult to operate. Brute strength needed to get handle to turn on. Bed sagged when we sat on it and was very uncomfortable. Enjoyed the veggies in egg mixture for breakfast... a highlight. Staff was friendly but when unable to answer a question about room rate eligibility her co-worker was abrupt and barked out that they don't honor rates in question. Somehow that was offensive to ask.

    « Worst Hotel Experience »

    When I first booked the reservation, I reserved a room for Friday and Saturday night. I made a follow-up call to extend the reservation to include Thursday and Sunday night. Rather than booking it as one stay, the staff member booked three separate reservations that resulted in the annoyance of having to check in and check out for each reservation. During our stay, Friday afternoon, our shower handle broke. We had to call twice before someone came to fix it, and while the maintenance man was diligent in trying to repair it, it was not fixed until the following day and we were never told when we could expect it to be fixed. While a broken shower is an inconvenience as is, we were staying at the hotel as part of a bridal party, and the wedding was all day Saturday. With a still broken shower Saturday morning, my friend (another bridesmaid) and I had to scramble to other friends' rooms to shower for the day. Additionally, the only set of clean towels we saw the entire duration of our stay was the first day. Visibly dirty towels were not replaced, and it appeared that used towels we had placed on the ground or on our beds were just re-hung. We were extremely dissatisfied with our overall stay.

    « Wine and more Wine »

    We stayed at this property for 3 nights for the first time and really enjoyed our stay. This is a "Old School" drive up hotel which we really liked the convenience of. There is a second floor with no elevator, so we requested a first floor room and it was given to us. Our patio room was right across from the pool and breakfast room. Our patio had 2 chairs and a table to sit. The grounds of the hotel are really nicely landscaped with pretty flowers and fountains. The pool was really too cold for me to go in even at 100+ degrees outside temp.(the pool was not heated) We had a king bed room with a frig. and a microwave. We received upon check in a "goody" bag with a few snacks and a wine opener. Nice touch. There were also 2 bottles of water in the refrigerator complimentary and replaced each day. The breakfast room is very large and there is also an outside patio to dine at.The breakfast was served from 6am to 9:30am M-F. Bananas or apples,juice machine, coffee with flavored creamers,bagels,breads to toast,cereal,yogurt,2 kinds of scrambled eggs;one with cheese,one with peppers hash browns,,bacon or sausage,depending on the day., & a pancake maker. The breakfast really hit the spot, many choices. The hotel also has a few meeting rooms and a fitness room. There is coffee and cookies in the lobby in the afternoon. We chose this location because it was centrally located to go to the North wineries and the South wineries. The wi fi worked great in the room and on the patio. The room was clean and the staff was friendly. The room was a little dark and could have used more lights,but we loved the light above the bed. We were pleasantly surprised at how we loved our stay here.

    « Better than Expected »

    I read a couple negative reviews, so I was hesitant, but was pleasantly surprised (or lucky). Yes, the building appears to be a bit old, but I was tickled by the interior courtyard arrangement and how the rooms were cut to accommodate a small private patio. The beds were comfortable, the bathrooms appeared to be recently remodeled. There was some new paint on an old accommodation as someone previously mentioned, but it was done very tastefully.

    « Convenient to freeway »

    This is not the typical Best Western architectural layout. I believe it may have been converted from another hotel brand. The access to the premises is a little difficult but doable with some minor effort. Coming off the Southbound 101 freeway requires a right turn at the traffic light and then an immediate turn to the left across a busy street into the hotel parking lot. It is a two story hotel without an elevator. The breakfast was good and served early starting at 6 am.
