Wine may be considered a luxury, but a trip to wine country doesn’t have to break the bank. Lodi offers an array of affordable options, where bed and breakfasts and big-name hotels offer accommodations for a variety of tastes. If you’re coming as a couple, with the whole family, or with a pack of your closest friends, here is a sampling of our favorite options in beautiful Lodi.

The Inn at Locke House

A short 15-minute drive from downtown Lodi, the Inn at Locke House is a quintessential bed and breakfast. Owners Lani and Richard spent six years restoring the property, transforming it into one of the most stunning stays in town. Each morning, the eco-friendly establishment serves up a sumptuous breakfast, catered to particular dietary needs. For something a little out-of-the-ordinary, enjoy the Murder Mystery Package, where cocktail parties, teas, and dinners pair up with a dash of who-done-it.

Insider Tip

Book the Water Tower Suite. This three-level unit offers the most secluded, romantic stay, with its own separate entrance.

Grand Oaks Inn

The Grand Oaks Inn is not your average bed & breakfast. This five-room property is located on a cattle and pomegranate ranch, also operated by owners Joe and Ann. At breakfast, you’ll enjoy produce from the garden and orchard, while the gazebo and spa make for a perfect place to relax after a long day of tasting.

Insider Tip

If there are more than two of you, book the Branding Iron Suite: it features two bedrooms that allow for privacy and extra comfort.

Retreat Verdot

One of the best ways to experience wine country is with a group of your closest friends, and one of the most enjoyable and affordable ways to make such a trip memorable is by renting your own home. Roast s’mores in the fire pit, take a dip in the pool, hit a few balls on the tennis court, or challenge your buds to a game of bocce: the amenities are as wide open as your itinerary. The main house features three bedrooms, and an additional fourth in an unattached guest house.

Insider Tip

Don’t book a spa day—bring it to you. The property manager is more than happy to arrange for an in-house masseuse, along with a menu of other services.

Lodi Wine Country Cottage

The Lodi Wine Country Cottage is just as it sounds—a pastoral escape. The rental house offers a low-key, log cabin feel, great for a family, or as a relaxing retreat for a pair of couples. For an additional fee, you can even bring your horse if you have one.

Insider Tip

Wake up early: the sunrise is breathtaking from the wooden porch.

Hampton Inn & Suites Lodi

Always clean, always friendly, always easy—it’s hard to go wrong with the Hampton Inn. This hotel is a no-brainer for those seeking a familiar feel for their stay in Lodi. A free hot breakfast is served each morning, and there’s a Starbucks across the parking lot for an extra boost before a day spent wine tasting. When you come back for the evening, enjoy a relaxing swim in the outdoor pool.

Insider Tip

Bring the binoculars: The Hampton Inn is located close to the Isenberg Crane Reserve, a destination for bird lovers.

Holiday Inn Express Lodi

Wine country isn’t just for Mom and Dad: the Holiday Inn Express offers an easy and affordable place to stay for the whole family. Kids can enjoy a 24-hour sweetshop, and everybody will appreciate the spacious rooms. Make sure to pack a swimsuit—the Holiday Inn Express offers the only indoor pool in town (as well as a whirlpool for the adults), which will certainly come in handy after a day spent in the California sun.

Insider Tip

Drive past the blocks of chain restaurants and fast food to discover Pietro’s, a farm-to-fork Italian eatery.

For a little extra leg room with name recognition, the recently built Best Western Plus is the place.

The large rooms are spacious, and the free breakfast is an easy way to start your day.

Insider Tip

The Best Western Plus is located only a mile away from Michael David Winery, one of the best in town. Stop on by and try their wines, or grab a relaxing lunch at their café.
