  • Traveling alone, I will not have a car. Will get transportation from SFO to sonoma. Will I be able to walk a short distance to the square. Is your place on a highway?
    Good Afternoon, We are located directly on the Sonoma Plaza. There is no need for transportation if you plan on staying around the immediate vicinity! Most everything is walkable!

  • I saw that there is a Double Room with Two Double Beds, but it says it fits only 1 person, is this accurate? It is the $200sq ft room. There is another that accommodates 4 people as well (slightly larger). I guess I was trying to figure out the difference? Thank you!
    Hello, Great question! We will need to update the listing. The room with two double beds does accommodate up to 4 people. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Kurt
