The Olea is a quaint, small inn that is walking distance to the tiny business district of glen ellen. We had a wonderful stay that was highlighted by a couples massage at the Olea (great), 2 fantastic breakfasts and a wine tour that the hotel arranged for us with Ultimate Wine Tours. The room was great and the staff were...

We've experienced what I would call as authentic Sonoma County. Charming. Quiet. Great Hospitality. Confortable and beautiful rooms. The Glen Ellen village is charming. We feel at home in an enchanted décor and luxury-boutique hotel.

I stayed in a hillside king room with fireplace and really enjoyed it. The sheets were beyond amazing - I hope I can order some for my home! Next time, though, I would probably get the hillside room (very quiet) but not get the fireplace because when you are lying in the bed you only see the very tips of...

Dear Stacey - Thank you so much for your review! We use Comphy Company sheets for the beds and massage tables, which can purchased online. They are amazing, aren't they? We are sad you were not able to enjoy our full 2-course breakfast, one of our signature complimentary offerings. So you will definitely have to come back to try the...

We only booked for 1 night because they were already booked for that weekend. I wish we stayed longer. When we checked in, they upgraded us to the suite. It was amazing. They had a wine tasting in the lobby and the breakfast is amazing. We also used the hot tub which is nice. I would definitely come back and...

The Olea was a great place to stay in the Glen Ellen area. Take a look at the pictures on their website. Yes they are professional so you might think they look better than real life. But the care they take on the grounds is also professional so the hotel is really as beautiful as the pictures. The room and...

What a gem this place is. We were made so comfortable here. Our interactions with staff were like those in a comfy B&B. And the breakfasts were amazing. Even the homemade Chai and locally roasted coffee was fantastic. Every afternoon and evening there was wine/coffee/tea available while we either went to the Jacuzzi or sat around the fire pit. The...

My husband and I stayed @Olea for two nights in February and loved this charming hotel. From the very first minute when we were welcomed and upgraded to a king room by Kent, to the gourmet breakfasts each morning, we were delighted with our stay. The daytime manager, Julie, couldn't have been more gracious and helpful. Would highly recommend this...

We stayed at Olea Hotel for two nights and loved every minute of it! When we arrived Ken welcomed us and helped with options and reservations for dinners.

A great welcome from Kent. Room was not large but plenty big enough with a modern, clean bathroom. Complimentary wine is a nice touch, plus nice outdoor seating areas to enjoy your drink - with a fire pit for those chilly evenings. Breakfast was every bit as good as reviews I read said it would be and the service was...

This place is a gem! Off the beaten path of Glen Ellen. Beautiful rooms, a lovely staff and a delicious breakfast. Gretchen checked us in and out and really made us feel welcome. Super close to downtown GE. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

“Avoid the king room (downstairs) as it is closest to the road and receives road noise. In the evening, it was never a problem though.”
