My family came to Healdsburg for the first time in October 2011 to run in the town's 1/2 and Full Marathon. We booked the 2-bedroom suite located a few blocks from Camillia Inn's main campus on Foss Street. From a location standpoint, it could not be beat--only 1 block from the start and finish of the race on Grove Street. It was also very clean and comfortable. Problems were the 2-bedroom suite or apartment is located on the 2nd floor without any lighting on the outside and on top of the bakery's garbage cans. The cute patio area stunk to the point we could not use it, and the odor emanating when we walked into and out of the apartment was awful. There was night-time noise with the dumping of glass bottles in the dumpsters, which was unfortunate as we needed a good night's sleep before the race, and of course, the dumping woke us up on each instance. The oven had to be unplugged as it kept beeping in the middle of the night. The television provided in the living room was a very old and small one, and frankly, for the room's price, we would have expected mounted wide screen TVs in the living room and 2 bedrooms. Breakfast is not provided to those renting this 2-bedroom suite/apartment, although the "happy hour" wine service at the main building is, and it was lovely. We won't stay in the apartment again, the location notwithstanding, however, we would like to try staying in a room in the main building. Lucy, the innkeeper, was very gracious and helpful. The main building is very cute and clean, and there is a pool in the back. The location of the main building still is close to everything downtown, including the race site.
Our visit to Healdsburg was wonderful, and the downtown is one of the cutest we have ever seen. We will be back, hopefully next year to run in the next race, which was a terrific experience.
