Great remodel. Only, they gave us a room next to the electrical & laundry room and when I asked if it might to loud they moved us to a room along the hwy. It was intensely noisy come about 3:30 am.

Nice clean hotel with very comfortable rooms. Depending on someone’s needs the location is very convenient to the 101 Highway however the location is right next to the highway and area is not very inviting (pictures on Travel Zoo inferred it was near a vineyard). After exploring the area I would opt for a hotel closer to vineyard areas.

No phone no service and my phone charger and fit bit chargers were left and they said they couldn’t be found. They would not answer my cell call after 30 rings or another 2 times they answered after 20 or so rings and said can you hold and immediately clicked me off and never answered again. So I am amazed how unserviced oriented they were when they are in a service industry. Can you help me retrieve my chargers? Also they allow dogs that wake you up before 7 am. Horrible experience

My room was a few yards form the southbound lane of the 101 Fwy, not very romantic.
Other Comments
The cliche "A picture is worth a thousand words" I was lead to believe, by the photograph on the web Page at booking, that the Sideways Inn was in the middle of a winery or at last on the grounds of a winery, to my surprise the winery turn out to be the 101 Fwy. The closest winery was blocks away. I have used travelzoo in the past and have not been dispointed until this trip. Not sure if your misrepresentation of the Sideways Inn was done on purpose but our 25th year anniversity trip was less than memorable. Travelzoo never said that the Sideways Inn was in a winery or next to one, but sure implied it by posting that immage on the booking webpage. I trusted travelzoo to provide me with accurate information of the location allowing me to decide or at least know what awaits me upon arrival, I was deceived, thanks travelzoo.
