Stayed here with a friend after purchasing a deal on Groupon. Great location--within walking distance to fantastic restaurants and tasting rooms, and a short drive to visit wineries and parks. Clean, comfortable and spacious rooms. The Saloon is awesome. Housekeeping staff at the Lodge deserve special commendations. Would recommend.

Glen Ellen is not much more than a wide spot in the road in wine country. And the Jack London Lodge, with its saloon, is right at the widest spot. Great gardens filled with flowers set off what was once a 1960's-style motel but is now a cozy retreat. We had a Groupon special rate and found ourselves a terrific...

We spent last weekend at Jack London Lodge in Glen Ellen and spent Friday and Saturday wine tasting in Sonoma. The Lodge is a nice older property that has been very nicely updated. Our room had beautiful furniture, hardwood flooring and a nice bathroom. Everything we could want! The Lodge has nice landscaping and a good pool and Jacuzzi. Management...

The Jack London is a great value for Glenn Ellen. The Lodge is a hotel style with outside stairs and ground access to each room. The rooms were spacious and clean. Nice bed. Nothing fancy,,,,but I would not hesitate to return. A groupon coupon put it at $89. Everything around here is 2 to 3 times as much. They gave...

This is a very nice place to stay, clean and reasonably priced. It looks like an updated motel. Large rooms, very clean, nicely decorated with antique style furnishings. I like the fact there is no carpet in the room, just a nice clean wood style floor. There is a mini fridge and coffee maker in the room (bring your own...

Not a lot of rooms but rooms are very spacious and very clean. We had a King room with to comfy chairs. Large dressing area with plenty of counter space. Small refrigerator and a coffee pot in room (love that feature). WiFi worked well and was free another plus. Wisteria draping over the overhang right outside our door was very...

In America's wine country, there are as may choices in lodging as there are grapes on the vine. So what's better than getting 'TripAdvisor' to get one with a terriffic price. We stayed here while enjoying wine, food and beautiful days. Here is a hidden secret: 'Buena Vista' winery just outside of Sonoma. Be sure to stop at the 'Vistor's...

The Jack London Lodge is a bit of what I remember a hotel to be as a child. You still have a real key to open your door. The rooms are spacious with a good size bathroom area. The lodge is surrounded by woods which makes for a very pretty setting. The lady at the front desk was so helpful...

What a little gem this place was! Rooms are a little dated but in a charming, throw-back way. Very clean and had everything we needed. Adorable continental breakfast served on the patio by pool. Easy walking distance to the bar they own and to the wonderful restaurant called The Fig Tree. I would definitely stay here again!

A motel that has been renovated to give it a country B&B feel. Clean and in a safe, quiet but central location. Right next to a great bar which serves good food. We especially enjoyed the complimentary breakfast next to the creek.
