Sonoma Creek Inn rooms have custom design touches and original art.

Attention harried parents desperate for alone time.
For a quick breakaway to Sonoma, the Sonoma Creek Inn is offering a “Stay & Savor Sonoma” package deal.
This is more like a wine and dine steal.
For as little as $165 you can have a delicious night away in a queen guest room at the inn, dinner for two at your choice of Della Santina, Meritage or the Glen Ellen Inn for a value of up to $50, and two complimentary wine tasting passes to Sonoma Valley wineries.
The 16-room Sonoma Creek Inn has long been one of the best budget secrets in Sonoma Valley. It’s just a couple of blocks from the posh Sonoma Mission Inn, at 239 Boyes Blvd. in Boyes Hot Springs. While its plain exterior doesn’t impress from the road, the rooms are really nice for the price. Some have private patios or porches. Instead of corporate decor, you get a warmly painted room decorated with original artwork, hand-crafted accessories and art tiles.
The package deal is good Sundays through Thursday nights, Sept. 6 to Sept. 30. 888-712-1289, 939-9463 or sonomacreekinn.com.
