    If you don't need luxury, the downtown Travelodge is your best bet. Nothing fancy, but if all you need is a place to crash it's in easy stumbling distance of Russian River.

    (Note that there are two Santa Rosa Travelodges, so make sure you're booking the downtown one)

    For cost saving purposes, I use the priceline bidding process for a 3.5 star hotel and typically get the Flamingo for about $60/nt. My buddy once got the Hyatt at $50! This time I may just stay at the Hyatt though. It's close and it's nice.

    Thanks guys. I will only be there a night and although I know it is shitty, I will be staying at the Travellodge Downtown. Super close and cheap

    Yeah, I stayed at the other Travelodge the first time I went for the Younger release and it was cheap but terrible.

    The GF and I stay in the Santa Rosa area around this time fairly often (usually just for a night before heading up to Mendocino). The downtown travelodge is a good bet if cheap and "within" stumbling distance of the brewpub is your main criteria. However, just a mile or so down the road from the brewpub are any number of hotels that, IMHO, are far superior to the travelodge. The quality inn and the Best Western Plus Garden Inn are both good and cheap, while in the other direction there's the Sandman. (roughly the same distance, but north instead of south of the pub). I'd stay at any of those places before I'd stay at the Travelodge downtown, though granted, none of them will be as convenient to the brewpub as the TL.

    For those worried about stumbling back to a bed, I saw taxis hanging out across the street from the pub last year when I was out there. I plan on utlizing those more this time.

    I stayed up there somewhere near the brewery and it was a total shithole. Boarded up windows...I didn't sleep well knowing I might get raped and stabbed.

    I heard nothing but bad things about the Travellodge other than it is really close to the brewery and the cheapest rate I found. I will look into the Best Western tomorow

    By staying so close at something like the Travellodge you are depriving yourself of the awesome stories you will have from doing the .7-.8 mile walk home back through downtown and under the freeway to the Hyatt or Marriott late one night.
