This is our second visit to the Olea Hotel. It's even better on the second visit. The staff is warm and welcoming. They are very knowledgeable about the area and are excited to help you plan out your visit from winery tours to restaurant reservations. The rooms have the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. You don't want...

Beautiful hotel, private and quiet. We got a Groupon for a one night stay and loved the upgraded room. Modern, high ceiling, fireplace, heated bathroom floor, deep tub, EO bathroom products. Excellent breakfast. Wish we stayed longer. We ate at Glen Ellen Star and it was fabulous. Sit at the chef's counter to watch all the action. This was a...

LOVED our visit here! Such a gem in the sweet little town of Glen Ellen. Room was so nice, but the property, the management, and the attention to detail was what made this place great! Everything was explained thoroughly at check in. The hotel offered wine, coffee/tea, and fruit at all times in the lobby. They have DVDs, games, and...

TL;DR: I read about this hotel in Sunset Magazine and fell in love. The grounds here are stunning along with the exterior of the hotel and the lobby/main hotel area (the interior of our room was kind of bland, though -- but it appears exactly as it is on the website. Some of the rooms are cuter than ours with...

We stayed at Olea during a recent 3 night wine country visit. We wished we could have stayed longer. We did not want to leave. No detail was left undone. Kent greeted us on arrival and had wine open and ready for tasting. Our room was amazing, with a fireplace, heated bathroom floor, great balcony, comfy bed. The breakfasts were...

I have nothing but great things to say about this place. There were 7 couples and we all enjoyed it. My husband and I stayed in lower cottage #9 it was secluded and delightful. The tile floor is heated, the sheets are so comfy! Every morning was a different, interesting, delicious breakfast. We enjoyed meeting around the fire pit, but...

We stayed at the Olea Hotel for 4 nights on a recent wine trip to Sonoma/Napa. The location was ideal for us, as it was convenient to the places we chose to visit in Sonoma/Napa Counties. The hotel is located within walking distance of good restaurants and the outstanding Glen Ellen Village Market (although the road leading to Olea requires...

Lovely hotel with bed & breakfast charm and excellent staff. Rooms were modern, and accessible via different buildings with wraparound porches. Our bed was ultra soft. We enjoyed movies on DirectTV after visiting the wineries and the heated bathroom floors with modern his and her sinks. Staff was happy to accommodate my request to send up a more powerful blow...
