2 night stay

Everything was wonderful. The breakfast was really good. One little improvement would be the addition of some rolls or muffins with the breakfast. The staff were GREAT!

Had a wonderful stay here, great location, friendly and helpful staff and quant accommodation. Anything I needed the staff were happy to help with, and breakfast on the one day of three that I stayed was very good. The price of accommodation in Sonoma at the weekends in August is quite high so I found this frustrating, but cinnamon bear was one of the more competitive.

Spacious, clean & comfortable

Rooms were larger and much nicer than expected. Included breakfast and coffee each morning was great. A good 20 minute walk to the square which we knew when we booked it. Expensive but not relative to other places in Sonoma. Most staff were friendly. Would definitely stay here again if I had to go to Sonoma.

Wonderful place to stay in Sonoma

This was a great place to stay! Great location not far from the main square. We had a last minute change of plans and needed to stay an additional night, and they accommodated us without hesitation. The staff gave us maps, dinner recommendations, and a complimentary wine tasting card. The room was very comfortable. When we reported the bathroom water faucet was leaking and wasting water, it was replaced the following day. Breakfast was delicious both days. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Great stay in wine country

The proprietors here were very helpful with recommendations on dining, wineries, and tasting rooms to try. They even helped us out with a complimentary tasting card that was honored at a large number of the places we wanted to visit. If you don't like your bed super-high off the ground, that may be an issue, but otherwise, this was a great stay. There's a stream nearby that you can see from the back yard, and there's also a conveniently located urban trail system of sorts for a morning jog.

Fantastic Stay

We spent three nights at this B&B. This is the first time I've ever stayed in a bed and breakfast, and this will absolutely be the standard for me moving forward. The place was very clean, the staff incredibly friendly, the location very close to all of the activities in Sonoma, the breakfasts were delicious, etc. etc. etc. I can't say enough good things about this place!

Awesome B&B!

We enjoyed our pre and post wedding stay at this inn. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a unique place to visit in Sonoma.

Great Value; Great Location

We stayed at Cinnamon Bear for 2 nights. It was only a 10-15 minute walk to the square where there are tons of restaurants and shops. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Kathy was a great host. Breakfast was delicious & healthy!

Comfortable stay at the Cinnamon Bear

My wife and I had a great experience during our recent stay at the Cinnamon Bear. Our room was clean and well-appointed. We were able to come in early the day of our check-in and obtain the wine tasting voucher to use that day, which was a great favor of Cathy and the staff. Our breakfasts were just the right serving size and delicious--we had the orange pancakes one morning and a scramble with turkey bacon the next. Overall a great place and convenient to exploring the wine country.
