My husband and I had a wonderful stay here. It was our first visit, and we would love to come back. The décor is fun and whimsical, the bed is super comfortable, our room was cozy and spotless, and the folks who run the hotel were incredibly helpful and responsive. There is really something special and lovely about this hotel,... More

Afterr a visit to some wineries, we were lucky enough to score the last room here! Adorable room at top of stairs with a clawed foot bathtube - very tastefully decorated with even a touch of whimsy! Very friendly and attentive staff - yummy breakfast and overall a magnifique experience! Highly recommend the Metro. The French decor makes it a... More

Very charming hotel, with friendly staff. Décor is French, with comfortable beds and lovely linens. Situated near Old Town Petaluma and the Petaluma River and near a very interesting residential neighborhood. Complimentary coffee (Peet"s) and tea bread, interesting art and French antiques everywhere.

I arrived at The Metro Hotel on a rainy and chilly night. Upon entering the lobby I found the decor to be interesting, as it is completely French inspired. Based on the lobby I wasn't quite sure what to expect of the room but was pleasantly surprised. It felt like I was in Europe. The bed was so comfy and... More

A short ten minute walk from downtown Petaluma, the Metro Hotel and Cafe is a quaint, family owned hotel that provides a comfortable and convenient place to spend the night. Decorated in a "Parisian" theme, the hotel provides a welcome change from cookie cutter hotels but is clearly targeting travelers who are happy with basic accommodations at affordable prices. Arriving... More

The Metro is one of a kind. It's very French, clean, family-run, and in the lovely town of Petaluma. There is a courtyard that is a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee and morning pastry--all provided. Don't miss the opportunity to stay here. And, if possible, have the owner's lovely and very bright daughter Jasmine show you around. She'll... More

Great place to stay! Affordable, convenient, clean and charming. LOVED the airstreams, and plan on coming back to stay in one this summer. The decor is so fun! Something to look at around every corner. The staff and owner were very welcoming and friendly. The cafe isn't open, currently (bummer) and the bed was too hard for our liking. Also,... More

I LOVED this hotel. The room was light, bright, cheery and a great value. Parisian themes abound in the decor from the wicker chairs to the little closeted check-In desk. The linens were lovely with a very comfortable mattress and luxurious duvet. Toiletries are provided by the bottle, including bubble bathe for the claw footed tub. This is soooo much... More

Beautiful rooms, attractively furnished, in 100+ year old building. Large skylights, clawfoot tubs, wood floors, down comforters. Breakfast is spare with slices of poppyseed cake and good coffee or tea. If you prefer a larger breakfast plan to visit some of the restaurants nearby. Reasonably priced. I definitely plan to stay again.

This is a beautifully kept, eclectic and quirky place I absolutely adore. I stayed two nights and enjoyed everything.....songbirds in the arbor over my door, sunlight shining on the lemons on the tree along the fence....it felt like I was in a small french getaway. Loved the wood floors, the bed was divine. I just loved the cleanliness and the... More
