An excellent value for the price, the Sonoma Creek Inn is sweetly decorated (colorful bedspreads, fun lampshades, the odd tile mosaic in the wall) and fitted with flat-screen TVs and in-room coffeemakers). The property is clean and the staff friendly. Rooms are a tad more spacious than they are at other converted motels that are a bit older, and an extra $20 buys you a balcony or a pleasant walled patio with your own fountain—a nice touch. Boyes Boulevard is a little noisy (well, for Sonoma), and the neighborhood is strictly farm community—meaning it needs some grooming but is safe—and you’ll have to drive a minute or two to get anywhere else in town.
