Reviews for Inn at Occidental
My boyfriend and I were looking for a new adventure and we stumbled upon the Inn at Occidental. I absolutely loved this B&B. The service was superb, the rooms were big and clean and incredibly cute. We had a giant king sized bed and all the rooms have 2 person jacuzzi tubs. Breakfast was delicious both mornings and they offer complimentary wine tastings each evening. The town of Occidental is a little strange but we had the "perfect day" suggested by the concierge, Marilyn, which consisted of a costal drive, a beach visit and an afternoon of wine tasting. Thank you so much, we really enjoyed our getaway!!

My husband and I had a weekend away together and stayed at the Inn at Occidental. The host provided us with complimentary wine tasting in house, as well as tickets to other wineries in the area. The house is old, but well maintained. Breakfast was delicious. We even treated ourselves to a day at Osmosis Day Spa. Close by is the town of Graton which has a very good Polish Restsurant. We plan on coming back.

This is a nice spot, but over priced. The bed is comfortable, the room spacious. Breakfast was tasty. These are all good points. But I have a problem paying premium prices and walking into a courtyard that is weed filled. The planted pots are dead or in need of replacement. The rug is a bit dirty. The paint job in the restroom off the lobby is sad and ugly. The details are just not well done. The lady who checked us in was very nice, as was the chef. They seem to enjoy their jobs. But for this kind of money I expect everything to be flawless.

We stayed here Christmas Day. It was very nice. We stayed in the Heritage room up some rather slippery stairs. No elevator. Room was beautiful. Fabulous heritage quilt over the bed and lovely hot tub for 2. Fireplace was cozy but only source of heat. Was addiquit for cold night. We brought our dog and they are very happy to see your 4 legged babies. They had a set of bowls,dog treat and the dreaded poop bags all there for you. The breakfast in the morning was very good. Wonderful granola and then great eggs benedict. A treat. Great stay down to the cute rubber duckeys in the hot tubs!!!

We visited the Inn for our Wedding Anniversary, and the Inn at Occidental is designed for these kind of weekends--a lovely, sprawling old house in a tiny town near the coast. We stayed in the Sonoma Lodge Room, which was in the "Courtyard Building" behind the main house and up several flights of stairs. The stairs meant our room was at the very top, and we enjoyed our deck and the view of the town. The room is large and creatively decorated--if you're looking at photos, it's the one the bed as a birch tree. Very cool, and I loved the teal wall color The linens are good quality, and I appreciated having multiple places to sit and place things other than on the bed. We loved the hot tub. Two negatives: our mattress was pretty saggy (we did provide that feedback and hopefully it's been replaced) and it was disappointing that the fireplace could only be used via thermostat. Once the room hits the designated temperature, it turns off. Overall, the room could have used a bit of sprucing--touch up paint, etc, but was still very nice. The larger inn facilities are beautifully decorated. Breakfast was good and plentiful. In response to the earlier negative review: the dining room has a small buffet of breakfast breads, granola, yogurt, beverages, etc. In addition to that, there is a breakfast entree--for us, it was Quiche one day and Eggs Benedict the next. The friendly staff person didn't offer any a la carte items, but we did overhear a couple conversations about options for those that didn't want the standard entree (toast and omelets were offered) About the town: Occidental is small, and maybe less charming than some other Sonoma County villages. It's laid out along one street (pretty much) unlike those that have a town square. But there's a few restaurants (heavily leaning Italian), a brewpub, galleries, etc. We finished our browsing tour in about 45 minutes, and that was fine. We moved on to a canoe trip on the Russian River and a trip to the Beach--very nice ways to spend the day. Overall, we had a very nice weekend, and we enjoyed the Inn and the town of Occidental.
