The Olea was a great place to stay in the Glen Ellen area. Take a look at the pictures on their website. Yes they are professional so you might think they look better than real life. But the care they take on the grounds is also professional so the hotel is really as beautiful as the pictures. The room and...

What a gem this place is. We were made so comfortable here. Our interactions with staff were like those in a comfy B&B. And the breakfasts were amazing. Even the homemade Chai and locally roasted coffee was fantastic. Every afternoon and evening there was wine/coffee/tea available while we either went to the Jacuzzi or sat around the fire pit. The...

My husband and I stayed @Olea for two nights in February and loved this charming hotel. From the very first minute when we were welcomed and upgraded to a king room by Kent, to the gourmet breakfasts each morning, we were delighted with our stay. The daytime manager, Julie, couldn't have been more gracious and helpful. Would highly recommend this...

We stayed at Olea Hotel for two nights and loved every minute of it! When we arrived Ken welcomed us and helped with options and reservations for dinners. He also suggested, on our request, what to see and to do during our stay. Thank you Ken! We loved the Sugar Loaf State Park with a lot of birds and beautiful...

A great welcome from Kent. Room was not large but plenty big enough with a modern, clean bathroom. Complimentary wine is a nice touch, plus nice outdoor seating areas to enjoy your drink - with a fire pit for those chilly evenings. Breakfast was every bit as good as reviews I read said it would be and the service was...

This place is a gem! Off the beaten path of Glen Ellen. Beautiful rooms, a lovely staff and a delicious breakfast. Gretchen checked us in and out and really made us feel welcome. Super close to downtown GE. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Francine was amazing. I was discouraged because of the price, but her service by itself made the stay worth it. I could use a mini fridge for my amazing left overs, from the great food nearby. There are some great restaurants walking distance from the site as well.

Thanks for your review! Francine is wonderful! So glad you were able to meet her. We are lucky to have her serving our guests. Some of our rooms actually do have mini fridges, but not all of them. The rooms descriptions on our website note which do and which don't. We also allow guests to store food in our main...

This is our second visit to Olea Hotel and it was as wonderful as the first visit, if not better.
