Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location in Sonoma, near the plaza
  • All rooms feature a kitchenette or a full kitchen
  • All rooms have a private balcony or a patio
  • Attractive decor with modern baths and Aveda products
  • Free breakfast with homemade granola
  • Free Wi-Fi and self-parking

Cons

  • Rooms aren't high-tech -- no iPod docks or flat-screen TVs
  • No fitness center (free passes available to a gym 5 minutes from the hotel)
  • No pool (though guests get access to a pool and Jacuzzis at the off-site gym)
  • No restaurant

Bottom Line

This quaint, small B&B in the heart of downtown Sonoma is made up of six homey and attractive bungalows. Each bungalow is different -- some have wood-burning fireplaces, others have Jacuzzi tubs, separate living areas, or full kitchens -- so guests should specify exactly what they want when booking. The property is lacking certain amenities, such as a pool and a gym (although guests receive free passes to a nearby health club that has both). But the location is prime: Just around the corner is Sonoma Plaza, full of shops and restaurants, and the bungalows are right on the Sonoma Bike Path, leading to more than 40 area wineries.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

A half-block from Sonoma Plaza

Bungalows 313 is housed in a convenient location just a half a block from Sonoma Plaza's restaurants, shops, and cafes. It's right on the bike path that will take you (by rented bike or on foot) to more than 40 area wineries.

An area steeped in history, Sonoma is one of the most interesting cities in Sonoma Valley (as well as the closest area to numerous fine wineries). The city was founded as a Mexican town in 1823 centered around a plaza that acted then, and continues to act today, as the hub of activity in the area. The largest plaza in California at eight acres, the Sonoma Plaza is surrounded by historically-significant buildings, such as Mission San Francisco Solano (the last mission to be built on El Camino Real), the former Blue Wing Inn, where Ulysses S. Grant once spent the night, and the Sebastiani Theater.

  • 75-minute drive to Oakland International Airport
  • 80-minute drive to San Francisco International Airport
  • 1-minute walk to the Sonoma Bike Path
  • 2-minute walk to the historic plaza, lined with restaurants and historic buildings
  • 3-minute drive to Sonoma Train Town Railroad, a small amusement park
  • 7-minute drive to Boyes Hot Springs, known for it's natural hot springs
  • 10-minute drive to Sonoma Golf and Country Club
  • 11-minute drive to Glen Ellen's wonderful wineries
  • 55-minute drive to quaint Healdsburg
