Very well located motel for exploring the area in an affable, attractive small town in the heart of wine country. Not accommodation to spend time in, but fine for sleeping. It did the job. Hot tub and (cold) pool are a nice addition. Can recommend the supermarket / deli across the road. Expensive but good range and quality.

Beautiful location! The scenery is amazing! Hotel is not very children friendly. Hotel does not have any services and adjacent restaurant does not offer much besides a lounge to drink at. What saved the day in the area of food was the corner market which offers a good variety of food. Was disappointed when asked for a microwave and none...

Glen Ellen is one of my favourite spots in Sonoma, largely because of the people and the food. Quirky is a good word for it. Jack London Lodge is all you need if you're looking for a clean, basic hotel room, with a great location. It isn't luxurious, but it is affordable and convenient.

I've stayed here several times and have always been satisfied. For the price, it's a good deal. That being said, don't expect 5 star accommodations. Although clean and suitable for a one night stay, the place is experiencing some deferred maintenance issues that prevent me from giving it more than 3 stars. It's time the owners did some long overdue...

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...
