Management is nice and nestled in the redwood trees, it's not 5 star but compared to the prices of hotels it serves the purpose, it's decant and clean.has pool area and great restaurants, tomatina, boudin , Jafferys hillside cafe, crepvine, yetti Himalayan resturant and walking distant to flamingo hotel, close to all wineries.

We had a comfortable room with king bed, fridge, stove and sink. Also one desk and a small table-so both people had places for their computers and papers. We prefer baths to showers, and this room had a tub-which is unusual for a relatively inexpensive motel. The motel itself if quiet...but,the motel is convenient to Highway 101, so we had... More

I found this to be a very comfortable and well set up accommodation. We spent our time visiting various friends and relatives and attending graduation so just needed a place to eat and rest our heads. The hillside inn was more than adequate for our purposes and very reasonably priced.

Hello readers! Is this what you expect when you rent a room? CONSUMER BEWARE. There is a NON-DISCLOSED HILLSIDE POLICY that individuals inside the rooms during maid service hours MUST allow a maid to enter and clean. If you say no, they say "next time make other arrangements, i.e. don't come back"! For me - this was around 2 pm... More

The room was very clean and reasonable for the price. I found the attitude of the owner slightly rude, but to be honest it did not detract from the experience too much. The pool was nice and the motel was very well situated for the Sonoma Valley. I probably wouldn't stay here again, but if you have a thicker skin... More

We arrived late in the evening and were lucky to get the last free from. There was a warm and friendly welcome by the owner family. It´s not a 5-STAR-PREMIUM Hotel, but the best you can expect for the price.
