List of Motels on the North End Of Santa Rosa
The following motels are located on the north end of Santa Rosa, just one or two freeway exits south of the Highway 101 exit for our farm (approximately 10 -15 minute drive). Check for business rates or AAA rates for a price break. There is also a Hilton Hotel, a brand new Hilton Garden Inn (just north of our farm) and Fountaingrove Inn in this area - you may be able to get discounted rooms from Priceline.com or other services. Some offer breakfast with the room. You can also check with the VRBO website (vacation rentals by owner) for other lodging choices. I would not recommend you stay in motels that are located south of Santa Rosa due to the distance, traffic and less than desirable neighborhoods.

Breakfast may or may not be available at the lodge. This facility is older. Some students have not liked it due to the limited amenities; others loved it.
