Traveling the west coast for seven weeks now and this HIE was not on the top of the list of at least twenty different properties. As a Platium member the greeting by the clerk at check in was less than pleasant. No standard greeting, no pleasantries, no upgrade available, very grouchy. King size bedroom was very small and not terribly...

We stayed overnight during our road trip around the wine country. We wanted to visit the Dry Creek & Russian River area so we needed a "midpoint" to stay. We were starting to get afraid when we saw reviews of other hotels that weren't clean, a lot more expensive & even had bed bugs problems. The hotel needs to be...

The room was freezing (over the garage and overlooking the freeway/right next to it), but the heat worked well (once on). Note - no vents in the bathroom so leave the door open so it heats up. There were a lot of tables in our room but only one chair which was odd, but not an issue. Terrible blow dryer....

We spent a night here recently, the hotel is nice in an good location near Windsor town, although we drove into Santa Rosa for dinner which is also pretty convenient 10 minutes down on the 101.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. The rooms are run down and dingy, wall paper peeling from the wall, walls badly marked and unclean, check in staff are not well trained. Poor value for what was charged. I wish I would have changed hotels after one night. Will not make that mistake again

Check in onboarding process needs work. Cars backed up on the main street because of insufficient landing area and no one directing guests.

My wife and I stayed here two nights. It's right off the hwy but not very walkable to local amenities. It's also next to a dumpy looking apartment complex.

Super clean! Staff was very friendly and the shower had excellent water pressure. The continental breakfast has a variety of options. Parking is gated, which is nice. Close to downtown Windsor. Good value.

This hotel is well located if you are visiting the Dry Creek or Russian River Valley areas, not so good for Sonoma or Napa, as driving over to those places on 101 is a traffic nightmare almost any time of day. The common areas of HIE are nothing special, although they do offer free wine tastings hosted by local wineries...
