A dream of a vacation spot.

5 on July 15, 2014

The Inn at Occidental is pricey - but the wonderful staff and the gorgeous property really deliver on the promise. It really could not have been any nicer. Our room (Safari) was massive - immaculately clean, beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were memorably delicious. The staff treated us like old friends. The location was super - walking distance to everything in town, and short drives to the local points of interest, of which there are MANY. Our only complaint: That we couldn't stay another day.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast. Good location, quiet area, cozy rooms, friendly people. Great wine tasting hour in the evening. Yummy breakfast. I wish there were more breakfast entree options though. I also feel like it was a bit pricey. Overall, great experience!

Nice stay at Occidental

Very nice atmosphere and warm hospitality. I would have preferred to have fresh squeezed oranges instead of juices for breakfast.

Restful Gem

We went for a quick night away to celebrate a birthday and were totally blown away by the attention to detail in the service. Cake in our room on arrival, spur of the moment massage booked, fantastic dinner reservations at the local french restaurant. And the breakfast was fantastic. It is a darling little inn, but the incredible service really made it special!

Valentine's Day Weekend Get-away

4.4 on February 21, 2014

It was a rainy weekend but the stay at Occidental Inn warmed our hearts. Although we have been to numerous other B&Bs in the Sonoma/Russioan River area over the years, this was our first trip to Occidental and what a find! The setting is perfect and the Inn is truly a beautiful place. We stayed in the Marbles Suite and it is an exceptional room with a very comfortable seating area, fireplace, large spa-type tub, a nice sixed bathroom with a roomy walk-in shower. The breakfast was top quality cuisine, although the first day the service was inexplicably slow (50 minutes to receive the entree!). The second day however, the service was prompt and the food superb. We love this area and the Occidental Inn is one of the region's crown jewels.

planning to return as soon as possible

Comfortable, charming & welcoming

My bride and I stayed the weekend after Christmas. Tina & Jerry are the most Friendly and accommodating innkeepers. Every stick of furniture and decor is unique & authentic, right down to the wicker waste baskets. Breakfast was beautifully presented, well prepared, and healthy served in a lovely but chilly dining room. The only complaint is that we couldn't lower the heat in our room, so we were quite toasty under the down comforter and heavy linen. We hope to stay there again.

Wonderful B&B

The only thing that we recommend that the Inn should disclose, is there is limited cell phone coverage at the Inn. Verizon works in some places in the Inn but not all.

A Blessed Haven

Felt like a dream in the woods, in the clouds, amongst the transparency of man and nature living well together. Refreshed.

A Must Stay!!

I had always wanted to try a stay at the Inn at Occidental and finally got the pleasure to stay there a night as my husband and I took a road trip on our motorcycle. Everything about the inn met our expectations and we only wish we could of stayed longer. We will return again to experience one of the other charming rooms!!! Thanks Tina & Jerry..........

Sonoma's Best Little Secret

5 on February 08, 2008

I had not been back at the Inn at Occidental for a few years and decided to extend a business trip in they area to check on Jerry & Tina, the proprietors-innkeepers, and on one of my favorite inns in Sonoma. For all of those who have had the chance to visit and feel as I do about this property: be reassured. The Inn at Occidental is alive and well, as charming and whimsical as ever. After all their years of experience working in large hotels, Jerry and Tina have effortlessly -at least it seems- slipped in the much more casual world of innkeeping but brought with them a professionalism that is unfortunately often missing at other inns in that price range. (It's a member of both Unique Inns and Select Registry) Mixed with the tongue in cheek, quirky, luxury of the atmosphere, this is a winning combination! They brought a peacefulness to the inn that only added to its charm. Casually elegant is how I would describe the Marble Suite where I stayed. (No, the marble does not refer to a Vegas style decor but to these little round balls we played with in the school yard, now displayed artfully in a few places around the room). Rooms have no TV's but, when I asked Jerry about it, he offered to bring one in. Even though I was traveling solo this time, I declined and opted to enjoy the peace and quietness the absence of cell reception and of TV would provide for one night.Sitting in my private oversize spa tub, looking at the fireplace and listening to calming music provided on the cd player, I thought: "This is just what I needed after three days of conference in a generically nice chain hotel". After a great night of sleep under (the linens are so luxurious - Frette towels too) a delicious breakfast awaited us before our trip back to Oakland Airport and the real world. I am already looking forward to be back!

Soooo cute, cozy & comfortable

My husand and I stayed at this charming in recently while traveling through the area. What a find! The innkeepers are charming, the food is delicious and the inn itself has a personality beyond compare.

An Unforgettable B&B Experience

We were treated like royalty. Breathtaking decor and if I could get there each year, I would be back. Everything was top notch and staff went out of their way to make us feel at home. A perfect romantic escape. We look back on this stay here as one of our finest B&B experiences, and we have been to many. Don't miss this one! Fall in love all over again.

An Ultimate B&B Experience in Sonoma's Wine Country

5 on June 08, 2007

The Inn at Occidental is all its Website promises plus more. The innkeepers and staff are wonderful, the decor (throughout the inn) is high-style as well as charming, the courtyard is magnificent, the food (breakfast, homemade cookies, evening hors d’oeuvres)is outstanding, and the location is ideal. I have visited hundreds of inns in this country and abroad, and Inn at Occidental is one of my very favorites. I endorse it whole-heartedly.
