Review Summary


Pros

  • Large, clean, attractive rooms
  • Attractive lap pool with sun deck and comfy lounge chairs; bar service
  • Trendy Equus Restaurant & Lounge serves California fusion
  • Guests can golf at the nearby private Fountaingrove Golf and Athletic Club
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Free self-parking

Cons

  • Rooms mostly look over parking lot
  • Bedding and toilet paper feels cheap
  • Some tube TVs; flat-screens are old models and small
  • Not a very pedestrian-friendly location
  • No elevator

Bottom Line

The 124-room property is a solid mid-range option in Santa Rosa. Clean rooms have pleasant (if generic) decor, with red, green, and gold color accents -- but small flat-screen TVs and bland bathrooms. The lap pool and surrounding sun deck are attractive and tranquil, the lounge chairs plush and comfy. And Equus Restaurant & Lounge serves up California fusion dishes (with Mediterranean and Spanish influences) in a hip setting.

Location

On the northern side of Santa Rosa, in Sonoma County

Map of FountainGrove Inn Hotel & Conference Center

The Fountaingrove Inn is located near the northern edge of Santa Rosa, one of the largest towns in Sonoma County. While some hotels in town are located in pedestrian-friendly areas, this hotel is not: Expect to be driving to reach your destinations.

Santa Rosa might not be the prettiest city in Sonoma County, but it is the largest and most convenient if you are planning a trip that does not only involve wine tasting. The downtown area is full of department stores, restaurants, bars, hotels and office buildings, making it the only real town in the area. It's also the most kid-friendly place in the region, with an amusement park and interesting activities to do with the children.

It may lack the charm of smaller towns such as Healdsburg, but it offers easy access to some of the most popular wine-tasting destinations, and is conveniently located equidistant from San Francisco and Oakland airports.
