Booked 17-21 Dec 2014. Frontdesk lady was very friendly. Small area at breakfast but adequate free breakfast selection. Nothing fancy but enough to fill up. Wished they had warm eggs rather than chilled, peeled hard boiled eggs which was quite tasteless. The only warm food are the self-service waffles and hot beverages. Room- spacious and clean. Carpark- ample car lots.... More

The motel/hotel was fine. Conveniently located off of Hwy 101. Very quiet, no elevators to the second floor, rooms are clean But need updating. The mattress was uncomfortable for sleeping. The breakfast was OK. Room a little crowded but sufficient. Parking is very tight. The surrounding areas have a few shopping stores. Just a pleasant stay & priced right for... More

The hotel was nice. The only issue we had was the smell in the room because its the room they use for those with dogs. There was no stains, no wetness, No anything that deals with a dog. Which is the first time ever for a hotel that allows dogs that we have stayed at.

This is an older motel that has been moderately updated. Nothing very fancy and not at a BW Plus level, but certainly good. Had most of the same amenities and decor, just tile instead of granite and a little small. I thought the price was very fair considering being in the North Bay area. The staff seemed nice and they...

The best thing about this hotel is its location. Easy access to main freeway, short walk to malls and restaurants. If you are busy all day long and just want a place to crash at night, this hotel is perfect. Thankful for refrigerator in the room because we needed it for fresh fruits and veggies. Also thankful for laundry facility... More

I have always had luck with Best Westerns in the past. HOWEVER, this last visit at this location was very disappointing. My family and 2 show dogs came home with bites and rashes. According to the manager, this situation was "unlikely since I had a non-pet room", with no apologies at all. I would expect more for paying top dollar... More

Dear Traveler, We take all reports regarding any kind of "bug" activity very seriously. In fact, not only does our staff inspect the room, but we have a contract with a nationally known pest company that also inspects the room when some type of activity is reported. If, in fact, we do find fleas or some other type of issue... More

We generally have had good luck with the Best Western chain (they allow pets & are reasonably priced), but this particular hotel, while convenient to Napa/Sonoma and very reasonable, turned out to be very noisy located near the freeway (didn't get much sleep) and very small with one queen bed, desk, TV stand, chair & corner light. By the time... More

Dear Traveler: I apologize for your experience at our property. It is true that we are limited on outside space here and really try to be pet friendly as a courtesy (we know most hotels in the area are not pet friendly) to travelers. It sounds like you occupied a Queen room in the back building which are a little... More

Super location, super staff and super accommodations...all in a super community...all that and a restaurant as well. Lots of stores in the area for whatever you might need. Close to the heart of the town, with a great Green Cab Co. if you don't feel like driving.

Very disappointing for a Best Western, the location was depressing! The room was very average and small. There was roadworks going on all through the night and it was certainly not conducive too having a good nights sleep.

My wife and I had just been released from UCSF ER and were in desperate need of sleep and a room to stay in at 5:30am and they came through. I worked previously at a Best Western and I know how hard that time is to check-in a guest. So I knew if we could get a room it would... More
