Has everything you would expect of a higher priced hotel, clean, flat screen tv, fridge, little table and chair. All freshly remodeled. Even had my morning coffee waiting at reception.... I liked this motel 6 even better than grants pass motel 6 which I loved. Right off freeway with refreshing a/c, just what I needed!

I needed a safe and inexpensive place to stay before I dropped my daughter off at camp. Santa Rosa was closer but much pricier, so we stayed here. The room was new, clean and colorful albeit in a motel setting. No amenities to speak of, but none were expected.

It appears that the Motel 6 franchises, at least those I have been in this year, have all been remodeled. The rooms are Spartan, but clean with comfortable beds. This one in Petaluma is no exception. It is quiet with plenty of parking, a little pricey compared to others, but perhaps it's the location in wine country. This room did... More

I have been traveling for 2 weeks with 2 kids staying at different places, but I have never stayed at such a cheap place like this one. Dirty, no towels, no shampoo, not working wi-fi, tiny rooms. Rude and not caring front desk. Still I would not write this review IF... They gave me room with handicap shower. My 10... More

My wife and I, along with our grandkids stayed here for one night while passing through town. What can I say, it was a Motel 6. The WiFi in the room was non existent, and they charge an additional $2.99 per night to use it. The clerk offered a free night usage, but since I couldn't even detect the network,... More

Comfortable no frills hotel in good area for walking dog, parking for SUV with trailer. Restaurant across street had great food and patio so you could take pet. No breakfast but Starbucks, donut shop, and a few other places to eat all within walking distance. I would stay with my golden retriever again. Felt safe as a girl walking my... More

We decided to shoot up to Petaluma from San Francisco. The town is very cool with lots of coffee shops, antique dealers, and just cool stuff to see. This hotel is an average hotel. It was better than I expected from a Motel 6. It is a few block walk from Lagunitas which I'm sure is a big draw for... More

I like what the Motel Six chain had done with their decorating. It's sparse and I'm a huge fan of hardwood floors. Carpet is just a place for yucky stuff to hide. The price is very right if you can live with no extras. Even access to the Wi-Fi will cost you a couple extra bucks at the front desk.... More
