1 | Best Western Dry Creek Inn
This popular motel has expanded, adding a 60-room "Tuscan-style" courtyard building. Not quaint, but pleasant and reasonably priced. 103 rooms from $89.
 198 Dry Creek Road, Healdsburg; 707/433-0300;

2 | Hotel Healdsburg
A jolt of the hip and haute-moderne in downtown Healdsburg, the celadon-green hotel looks ready for a spread in Vogue. 55 rooms from $260.
 25 Matheson Street, Healdsburg; 800/889-7188;

3 | Healdsburg Inn on the Plaza
As the name suggests, guests in this hotel can savor the activity on Healdsburg's charming central square. 12 rooms from $200.
