The Best Western Novato Oaks is a hidden gem in the County of Marin. Although convenient to the 101 Freeway, it is situated far enough away from this corridor quietly nestled in the oak hills to the west. Windows open to the west natural oak tree hills in the open space beyond this hotel providing comfortably natural room air conditioning.... More

Great Place with exellent service. Fantastic room and beds. Free parking. Esay to drive to and from to wine valleys and the coastline. Whale spotting. Not far to the Golden gate bridge and the majestic tree forest. The race track almost on the other side of the road.

Beautiful grounds, nice room and great bed (we had a deluxe king room). It is a hilly property so be prepared to walk up ramps and/or stairs. The hotel is located near a freeway on ramp (1 block) and is within easy driving distance of shopping, dining and scenic attractions. The Wildfox restaurant had very good food, great service and...

I've been traveling ("on the road") now for over 25 years in America and around the world. I've never found a better place to stay or with more special people than the Novato Oaks Inn. I've been a regular guest here for 17 years! They are incomparable, the best. Business or pleasure they are exceptional at everything.

Very pleasant and attractive hotel- close to the freeway but quiet and restful. I seem to gravitate to Best Western. Breakfast is actually good. Staff helpful and quick. Some rooms are under the oak trees.

This hotel was had very friendly, helpful front desk staff - hooked me up with a great cab driver. The outdoor space was lovely and we enjoyed spending our evening there. Would have liked a few more items in their free breakfast but overall we would definitely stay again if we were in the area.

everyone in the staff went out of there way to help with any problems, very helpful to find places we needed to go and supply maps to get there. Also, to find places like where to get your nails done before a wedding.l
