The Sandman Santa Rosa was voted Top 5 Best Roadside Motels by USA Today 10Best Readers 2021. Reimagined in 2017, the charming motor lodge is a modern throwback inspired by the Spanish Mission Revival buildings found throughout the state, serving as an ideal launch pad for exploring California’s renowned wine country region and a host of outdoor activities. Inside the inviting lobby you’ll find eclectic touches and vintage furniture that inspire unplanned trips and a nod to the motor lodge culture.
Playful, yet refined, the 135 guestrooms offer a quintessential relaxed California aesthetic with bright spaces that are comfortable and uncluttered with a mix of natural and handcrafted elements. Channeling a tropical-meets-Californian-bohemian flare, the indoor-outdoor Pool House & Bar features a retractable glass garage-door and a walk-up window for refreshing cocktails with an al fresco ambiance. The Sandman’s year-round heated pool and hot tub encourage lingering afternoons in the sunshine. One of the most Instagramable features is a pink-neon sign affixed to the fence enclosing the pool. To those approaching the sign, it looks like hands waving hello but takes the effect of palms swaying above grasses from inside. Adjacent to the pool is the backyard complete with fire pit, string lights and lanterns, a bocce court, and cornhole for evening social gatherings. Whether you’re a road tripper, a savvy business traveler, or an ardent explorer, the pet-friendly motel has something for everyone.
