The Sebastopol Inn offers nice rooms in a contemporary setting where cleanliness and simplicity are held to high standards. But as they say, location, location, location: the real perk of this hotel lie in its proximity to the fun that awaits visitors to this little town. There’s no breakfast at the Inn, but Coffee Catz is just steps away. The artsy coffeehouse is a lively, gathering spot that features talks about personal transformation some days and science lectures on others, with open mics and music jams interspersed throughout. The cafe is part of the Gravenstein Station group of shops, which includes the eatery Gastronomist, located inside a renovated 1930’s Pullman train dining car. Next to it is the Fancy Booze Cabooze, the tasting room for Claypool Cellars wines, owned by Sebastopol resident Les Claypool of Primus fame. Across the street from the Inn is the Barlow center, which houses some of the area’s most unique shops and restaurants, and behind the Inn is the Joe Rodota Trail, an 8.5-mile paved trail that goes all the way to Santa Rosa.
Rooms on the second floor have balconies which are larger and more private than you would expect.
