don't stay here unless you sleep on the floor. the mattresses were lousy, lumpy and cheap. Rooms were too small unless you're a hobbit then I suppose it might be adequate for one of you. The room was very dark. I guess they don't like to buy light bulbs or they expect you to use flashlights.

My wife and I stay here at least four times a year when we visit our daughter in Petaluma. We don't mind the 16 mile commute from Novato since it is the best overall hotel in the area. The rooms are very nice with a lot of extra room for seating. We always stay in their deluxe rooms since it's... More

This was my first time in the area and was hesitant to stay local. I usually seek out Holiday Inn locations. This location was perfect and my stay was great. Beautiful environment and great staff. I truly enjoyed my stay and will return. I travel for business and would recommend this Best Westen Plus if in the area.

This Hotel is a 30 min drive from San Francisco (outside of the commute hours!) It is one of the nicest Best Westerns we have encountered. The check in staff are welcoming and helpful, our room was large, very clean and well equipped with a comfortable bed and a balcony overlooking I 101 and the countryside beyond. Despite the proximity... More

This hotel is definitely a great place to stay. Their service is excellent and the rooms are great. I had a deluxe-room, with balcony to the pool and a Jacuzzi. The breakfast is a little better than most other Best Western Plus I have been to, but still not very different. The checking in experience was fantastic, and I really... More

Great staff, good location and restaurant on premise across the parking lot. Management has done a great job developing the high quality staff. Front desk, housekeeping and breakfast were all very well done.

Motel-priced for San Francisco that is...actually it is north of SF and handy for any travel up and down the 101 highway, only 30 minutes from 1 Coast Highway and all the beach towns (where any place to stay is very expensive). Pleasant surprise at the hotel-quality (that may be what the "plus" stands for?!) in everything from nice pool/hot... More

This hotel is a good value in North San Fran, average rooms and average breakfast... The access is a little hard but it is off 101N so that makes it good. The staff is there best asset along with warm cookies in the evening

The hotel was very clean, the pool was clean, the rooms were clean and spacious. Each day the breakfast bar was well stocked and nothing ran out. The location of this hotel is very accessible to Hwy 101, but yet doesn't suffer from considerable (barely any) highway noise. There is ample parking and a restaurant on the grounds that serves...

The front desk staff here is AMAZING, They arranged free shuttle service for us to nearby locations, had extra hygiene products on hand, and truly seemed to want us to have a great experience. The rooms are a good size with a nice-sized desk and A/C that worked well -- not too cold and not too stuffy like many hotels.... More
