Very nice hotel with very friendly staff. There is a wonderful waterfall inside the lobby and the rooms were very nice. The wifi worked well and there was plenty of parking. Overall I would stay here again.

We had an issue with the beds in this hotel. Very soft with no firmness at all. The staff was very friendly although when we checked out the next day and told them about the beds they told us they had firmer mattresses and could have accommodated had we made that request. Well since they didn't mention it when we... More

The property is nice for the price. The complementary breakfast and free coffee all day is so nice. The staff is great, accommodating and pleasant. We felt safe and cared for. The lobby is nice. We watched deer from the business center. It is quiet. We will DEFINITELY be staying again. It is quite centrally located north of SF but... More

Two nights in a spacious third floor room looking East over the hills of Novato. Although on the HWY 101 side of the hotel, noise was not an issue. We loved the balcony seating and watching the sunset shadows creep over the hills. Standard BW breakfast but met our entire family's needs. Very clean rooms; excellent, friendly staff.

We have stayed at this facilty quite often over the last 10 years and have never had a bad experience. Our daughter lives in Petaluma, California which is about 15 minutes north of this motel and it is by far the best place to stay in the vacinity. The rooms that we have stayed in are spacious and very comfortable... More

I have stayed here on numerous occasions for business. Never once have I been dissapointed. The staff is pleasant and helpful. I lost my wallet a couple of years ago and the staff arranged for credit with the restaurant until my replacement credit card could be overnighted to me.

This hotel bills itself as "Best Western Plus." Plus what??? It appears to be an over-hyped Motel 6 that charges ridiculous rates only because it is 30 min. outside San Francisco, in Marin County, and there are so few hotel choices around it. Rate: I booked a room this month and the hotel sent a confirmation email quoting $170.10. This... More

Dear Marie, Thank you for taking the time to respond. I do completely understand the frustration over paying higher prices for the same product during different times of the year. You did hit the nail on the head though when you mention location. Due to our great location, not only to San Francisco, but the wine country during crush season,... More
