The price was decent but this hotel seemed on the lower end of the Best Westerns I have stayed in. It is on the corner of busy streets and a freeway. The room was relatively small and the bathroom tiny. It was clean and the staff was friendly but my room had a slight smell of smoke and was noisy... More

This is a great place to stay for the price. Very centrally located to everything you need. The rooms are decent for the price and everything you need is close by. The staff are always friendly & accomodating.

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The rooms are a little outdated, but for the price of the room I would say it was a average bargain. There is a hotel in the bordering lot and the prices for breakfast was very reasonable. the down side is they don't open until 7:00 a.m. So if you need... More

Well situated with a good value price. Close to many restaurants and businesses. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable, affordable stay in Petaluma. The Downtown is only about a mile away and can be reached in a matter of minutes.

Nice hotel, with clean rooms, easy to go to the restaurant across the parking lot for dinner. I will stay here again. I do work in the area, and feel safe coming and going from the well lit parking lot at all hours of the day.

This BW is located near 2 major streets and the freeway. The noise and sounds too loud. Rooms are a bit dated but very clean. Okay for one night but would not staff any longer. It is close to the hospital. Food good about same as Holiday Inn Express. Close to downtown and shops. This is an older BW that... More

Our pick of the Petaluma Best Western for an overnight was totally spur-of-the-moment and it turned out to be a real gem. In a very convenient location just off the highway, we got friendly & super fast checkin, a very clean, comfortable, nicely sized and well equipped room, and an on-site restaurant with excellent food ( & cocktails), all at...

We booked a handicap room for one day. The room was perfect and when I became ill we wanted to stay longer. Unfortunately that room was already booked. But the office arranged to move us to another room that was just as nice for the same low rate until I was well enough to travel. They were incredible and I... More

The Best Western in Petaluma is an awesome place with great value for the price. The room we had was very large (2 King beds and a sitting area) - plenty of room for 2 parents and 2 teens to each have their own space. We will definitely be staying here again!

This hotel is a little noisy and dated. However, the rooms are very spacious and comfortable, and unless you stay on a busy summer/fall weekend, the rates are very reasonable. I've stayed here several times in the past, and I will stay here again.
