We like this independent, non-cookie-cutter motel for its quiet, off-street location, usually reasonable rates and good-looking if basic rooms. Outside are grassy areas for kids and a hot tub.
Select suites feature a balcony or patio with garden views at Sebastopol Inn. Each room provides free Wi-Fi, a flat-screen TV and free toiletries in the en suite bathroom.
Fresh coffee is brewed daily at Coffee Catz Coffeehouse. Local wines and California cuisine is featured at the on-site restaurant, Starlight Wine Bar & Restaurant.
Overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the Bodega Bay coast, taffy and beaches are just 20 minutes’ drive away from Sebastopol Inn. Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve is 20 miles away.
