The Jack London Lodge doesn't have the most luxurious rooms in wine country, but they're spacious and comfortable in a basic way. Everything is no-frills, from the mediocre but clean floral bedding to the tube TVs to the simple bathrooms. The inescapable motel vibe is probably due to the fact that the facilities themselves are from an updated motel (the vacancy sign outside should tip you off). The best parts of the property can be found outdoors: the well maintained grounds blooming with flowers and the cozy pool area. This is a nice spot for people who are willing to stay outside Sonoma and Napa to save some cash -- and want a friendly, neighborhood environment. Aside from the on-site restaurant and saloon, there are plenty of restaurants and local bars nearby.
