Hotel Petaluma is located in downtown Petaluma close to all the action, so a great location for a night out in Petaluma. There is no parking, so you'll need to park a block or two away in the free parking zones. The building is charming and historic with a fabulous old lift. The room we had was a reasonable size,...

We didn't have a BAD stay at the Hotel Petaluma, but it also wasn't exactly what we were expecting. The hotel has a lot of character. We expected a boutique feel - but really, it was a room with beds in a really old building. There was no real hospitality feel - it felt more like an apartment than a... More

I love the Hotel Petaluma. We went with a travelzoo special, which included tickets to the Safari West. We loved the hotel and it's wonderful location. It was walking distance to so many wonderful restaurants. The little coffee shop attached had great customer service, good coffee and wonderful wine. Everyone was friendly and took good care of us.

Solo female traveler returns to Hotel Metro to find it is just as wonderful as last year! I loved my room last year and the one I was shown to this year was fine also. I enjoy all the irreverent decorations and good dose of color. The bed is comfortable, the water in the tub is hot, the windows open... More

I am not one to criticize hotels much but, good Lord, this was a joke. Counting on Travelzoo to offer its usual level of comfort, my wife and I were so disappointed upon first stepping into the room of horrors. The décor was pictures from the dollar store, yard sale reject furniture, dark, bland curtains. Water pipes ran thru the... More

My wife and I stayed at Hotel Petaluma for one night in July. It is not your typical hotel and that's not a bad thing. As we were checking in, I reached into the bowl of "mints" available on the counter. They were not mints……they were complimentary earplugs. Hmmm, I thought. It's good I grabbed some because my lovely Laurie... More

Almost verbatim as gemdad2001...and stayed 2 nights out of necessity last week of July during the heat wave. Noise was an issue...loved the bowl of earplugs. Was told to park in structure on a specific floor...but happened to run into meter maid..and upon quizzing her was told about being ticketed. Agree the place has potential..and does have great downtown location...but... More

Having stayed in everything from hostels to hospedajes to motels, this one has topped my list of laughers. No A/C was not that bad during a heat wave as I only stayed in the room at night. But no toilet nor shower in my room caught me by surprise. And the communal shower featured some grotesquely rusted fixtures. The parking... More

We bought the deal on travelzoo - which has always worked out well for us. This time we were disappointed. The decor and comfort of the room was lacking. The furniture looked like it was collected from the free section offof craigslist. We got only two pillows and since there were no comfortable chairs to sit in, the bed was... More

Need a passing thru place to stay in Petaluma?. Try the Old and Quirky Petaluma Hotel. Stayed 1 night in this place, and found it to be a great Hotel. A grand old building in Down town Petaluma, that maintains its great roots in history. So keep in mind the building is old, and decor is matching, but clean!. The... More
