Local art and playful touches add to the roadside inn character of the vibrant Sandman Hotel.

The Setting

Find all the best Sonoma Wine Country has to offer at the Sandman Hotel. Right in the middle of Santa Rosa surrounded by California native landscaping and views of rolling green hills, you’ll find this playful, yet refined roadside inn. If that description evokes memories of simple Route 66 motels, then you’re due for a Sandman upgrade. This AAA Diamond Award winner and Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence recipient is as savvy and modern as they come, and (hold applause) works with a large variety of local charities and non-profit organizations.

Sleep and Sanctuary

The 135 fresh and airy lodgings at the Sandman take on California retro-chic motifs and offer touches like in-room fridges, microwaves, free Wi-Fi, HDTVs, Bluetooth speakers and chill lounging areas. Rest easy knowing every inch of the room and linens were cleaned with products labeled Safer Choice by the EPA. The custom furnishings from local makers are a nice Kind touch, too. Every member of your clan is welcome to kick back and relax in the Sandman’s pet-friendly rooms where your furry friends are treated to their own set of amenities. Why not, they’re also on vacation.

Eat. Pray. Eat.

Adjacent to the pool sits your chilled-out food depot and watering hole. At the Pool House & Bar, you can spend a leisurely weekend day sipping cocktails, reading a good book, gazing at commissioned illustrations, or just nourish your body with fresh snacks and gluten-free bites from the Pool House menu. Items like a hummus plate with assorted vegetables set the standard.  Be sure to also check out their “Sunday Funday” menu and “Sandman Summer Nights” on Fridays, where you can sample local food trucks while kicking back under the stars listening to live music.

The Art of De-stressing

Keep up with your fitness regimen in the fully equipped fitness room with all the top-notch gear. We’re talking Peloton exercise bikes, free weights, kettlebells and more. If you’re the more outdoor cardio type, there are countless hiking trails and running paths just outside your door. 

Set against native landscaping, The Sandman's heated pool (and hot tub!) are an oasis of fun. The pool is large enough to accommodate families and groups of friends, yet the natural redwood fence helps it feel tucked away and private. The heated pool and hot tub are open year-round from 9am to 10pm.
