The room was very spacious but run down. We stayed one night and had a confirmed price. Two days after our stay we noticed we were charged one hundred dollars over the confirmed price. Still trying to get ahold of someone to straighten it out. The curtain hardware was broken and the curtains were shabby and sloppily hanging off the rod…literally had to use hair clips to close them to keep the light out. The chest of drawers wouldn’t stay closed so nearly ran into them several times. There is one tiny TV that is hard to view from both beds. The carpet was so nasty, we kept our shoes on until going to bed. The sheets had holes in them but were clean….hoping the rest of the bedding was clean as well. You will want to ask for extras when you check in. There is one package of coffee, soap and a couple of shampoo bottles. The office is not open early in the AM so if you need anything you are out of luck. We were only there to sleep and move along….thank goodness!

Stayed at the hotel many times over the past years. Always happy with the location and value. Currently, it has fallen into disrepair and is filthy. The front desk person was unprofessional and not helpful.

Stayed there for a few days with my mother, who was having surgery in Santa Rosa. Room was large, looked good, and was clean. Lots of amenities. I liked the sliding door between the bathroom and the rest of the room. Beds were comfortable. Their onsite restaurant has great breakfasts. There was a speaker system in each room connected to an intercom at the front desk. I assume it was for alerting guests of danger. Never seen that in anyplace I have ever stayed. Did not use the pool but it looked clean. The "hillside" behind the Inn was beautiful--we drove up it one evening. We did not find the traffic as noisy as some have stated. A good value price-wise too. My only complaint were some of the other guests. They littered on the property (staff should have cleaned up the property more often). Someone was stomping around on the upper walkway at night a couple of times (we were on the bottom). One night, there was a party on the top floor near us. One group of guests would walk past our room at night talking loudly among themselves. The worst was one night when a man on a cell was having a loud animated conversation in the back parking lot, which was near our room. The jerk went on and on for over an hour!

The management changed and the prices are slightly higher, the room price is now not comparable to places like e downtown, which is cheaper and much nicer. The new front desk people are great, i just dont feel the price is right in this current market.

The hotel is very close to everything and is great if you can sleep anywhere. We unluckily are not those people and everyone had a bad night. The rooms are spacious and we felt safe but the heater turned on and off throughout the night plus the two roads stay busy throughout the night.
