This establishment is everything you would want and need for a good nights rest, very clean, modern, with large comfortable rooms and friendly staff. It is located far enough from the busy traffic of San Francisco, but close enough to get there if that is your desire. It is convent to the wine country and seashore recreation areas. This is...

I had failed to make a hotel reservation on my recent business trip to Marin County. Since I was working in Novato, I decided to try the Best Western Novato Oaks. Lucky for me, they had rooms available. The room was spacious, well furnished and clean. Did I say CLEAN! The room was quiet. They have an awesome breakfast every... More

I recommend this hotel for its excellent & professional staff, high standard of services & amenities-- all at a reasonable cost! Work was completed on the hot tub in a timely manner, so that we could enjoy the outside amenities offered as well.

We had a lovely room. Hotel is conveniently located near the freeway. Lobby staff very friendly and always greeted us with hellos and smiles. Bed was comfy. Loved the balcony and enjoyed being nestled on the oaks. Would definitely stay there again.

For the size of this hotel the parking lot is way too small. The first night it took me about 10 minutes to find a spot. The second night it took 30 minutes! The dead-end lanes are also very narrow. People were parking on the grass and in no parking areas beacuse it was so bad. There were also some... More

Dear Michael E, I am so very sorry that you were so disappointed with your stay! I completely understand how frustrating it would be to come back to your hotel at the end of the day to find no place to park. Fortunately or unfortunately we only run into this parking problem a couple times a year due to unusually... More

Super friendly and accommodating staff, we called the same day when all other area hotels were full. The room was clean with nice decor and a balcony. The bed was comfy and the area was quiet enough for being so close to the freeway. I would definitely stay here again!

Excellent for a warm weather break from SF with family. Very great alternative to pricey wine country options. Pool, breakfast and back area very family friendly. Easy check in and out. Relaxing atmosphere and clientele. quiet, and easy off the 101. Very close to hamilton community pool - very nice option as well.

clean quiet room, nice employees during 1 night stay. breakfast ok. Waffles, sweet rolls, quiche, juice, coffee, etc. Not too much fresh fruit or breakfast meats. Chronicle newspaper provided @ breakfast. Room numbering system is absolutely goofy and even with directions at check-in made finding the room difficult.

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.

I am so sorry to hear that you were not happy with your accommodations! I truly find it bewildering that one guest can review our rooms as small when as you can see by the other reviews, most review them to be large. Same as bed comfort. Most love our memory foam beds, a few do not. Bed comfort is... More

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
