If you are going to be doing a variety of activities around San Francisco and will be renting a car this is the perfect place to stay. It is out of the hustle and bustle of the city but not too far. It is very nice and well-maintained. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Great value considering the over--priced... More

I realize this isn't a "five star" hotel, but I gave it a 5 of 5. I travel constantly. This time it was for leisure. This hotel doesn't have the spa and all these amenities, but it was incredibly comfortable, quiet, and just wonderful. The town is near enough to both Napa and Sonoma to make it easy to go... More

This is a quiet hotel in beautiful country. The price was right, the staff was friendly and the room was clean and quiet. Bathroom was dated and carpet older but for the price it was a great place to stay. I would stay there again if I was in the area.

This hotel is about 45 minutes away from the San Fran airport and 20 min from Sonoma. Our room was pretty big, clean and had everything we needed. They have a shuttle that will take you to a bus (about 4 min away) to the San Fran Airport which was really nice. There is a lot of shopping and pleanty... More

Everything about this hotel was excellent. Convenient to San Francisco, Napa Valley, the ocean, etc. The hotel staff was excellent and went above and beyond what what necessary or expected! The hotel breakfast was excellent with a wide variety of selections. They had one of those waffle irons - mmmmm! Couldn't resist it!

Beautiful facility when walking in and excellent pool/Jacuzzi area, complete with fire pit for evening talks and ping pong table. Little more discouraged with the room itself. Still comfortable bed and nice balcony, but toilet was apparently not cleaned prior to our stay due to urine on the back and under the top seat. It felt like an older room... More

I am glad to hear you were pleased with the facilities, however, I was dismayed reading about the unsatisfactory condition of the bathroom. I do hope you called us immediately to let us know. My deepest apologies for the housekeeping oversight, It is really unacceptable and I have alerted the head of the department. Thank you Sincerely, Michelle, GM . More

Beautiful hotel. Clean rooms and lovely setting. The front desk is very professional and nice. The restaurant across the way is quite good. The continental breakfast is sorely lacking and morning service personal very rude. We were there 15 minutes before the end of breakfast and where not allowed to take any food with us. They blocked us and removed... More

We always enjoy our stay at most of the Best Westerns we stay at. The Novato Oaks Best Western Plus is our favorite when we are in their area. Service, room quality, amenities, are all 10's. I admit we have not stayed at ALL Best Westerns, but have stayed at quite a few and are usually satisfied.

Thought I was settling for something less than what I'm used to with Hampton, Holiday, Double Tree, etc. Not the case! Beautiful property, well maintained and equipped. The great price was icing on the cake.
