My wife and I stayed at the Novato Oaks for five nights. We found it ideal for visiting San Francisco, Saulsilito, San Rafael and the Wine Country. Although very close to highway 101, the hotel was very quiet. The Superior rooms were clean, spacious and well appointed but the Delux rooms were worth the price of the upgrade, being more... More

This is a wonderful hotel that is only about 35 minutes away from Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. Its location is extremely convenient to San Francisco, and to Napa Valley wineries. Parking is free and the room was both attractive and spacious. The two queen beds and a rollaway worked great for our family of five. The continental breakfast... More

As the name says the hotel is surrounded by oak trees. It can be quite dark even when there are blue skies. Room was nicely furnished with flat screen TV. AC was a little loud. Free breakfast was self-serve.

Novato Oaks Inn was spotlessly clean and felt like home. There were many little touches that made the inn stand out such as Starbuck's coffee available around the clock, beautiful flowers everywhere, plenty of chairs around the pool along with ping pong and a gas grill for the guests' use. The rooms were very clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. Each... More

We stayed here two nights on our way north over Memorial Day weekend. The hotel is located just off the 101 freeway and across from a Burger King. The front desk staff was friendly and quick. We were placed in room 1201 - top floor in the farthest north building. I worried that our room would be noisy - and... More

Arrived very late having been bumped by Travelodge. Found welcoming and friendly front desk (at 10:30 pm!) and clean, comfortable room. Very good value. Discovered it was a family-run hotel (passed on from grandfather to grandson) within the Best Western franchise. Would definitely return here if needed to stay in the area

We landed in San Francisco from a cruise ship and had pre booked this hotel based on good reviews in Tripadvisor. We were not disapointed. We found the staff informative and helpful. The room was comfortable and the continental breakfast excellent. The 24 hour beverage stand in reception is an excellent facility. My wife appreciated the guest laundy a lot.... More

We stayed at this hotel to kick off our honeymoon on 10/26. We had just flown into SFO, picked up our rental car, drove through San Francisco and stopped at Muir Woods ... and were looking for a place to stay in between there and Napa. This is a nice, large ... but quiet property nestled away from most of... More
