I stayed several times at this hotel in January. Always met very friendly hotel staff. All the rooms I got were super clean and new furnished. One of the best Motel 6 I have been so far and I go to many as I always have my service dog with me. Highly recommend it. Doris

We took a spear of the moment trip to the wine country and on our way from Tucson we slept ONLY at Motel 6. The reason is as follow, they are almost all newly remodeled, they are dog friendly, they don’t have carpets (hurray) and they are wallet friendly. They are very minimalistic as far as soaps, no breakfast but... More

Rooms for M^ are competitive. They are clean, nice, comfy, good locations, and near amenities. I like them. The save you money and give you value. I used this one for a business trip. The staff was friendly and the room was spotless. This chain has exceeded the test of time.

Not long ago I never would have stayed in a Motel 6 because they had gotten so gross. I trusted other reviews and took a chance twice this year in two different city's. I like the new wood floors. They are much cleaner than carpet and I could tell they had painted and added some new sink fixtures. Bring your... More

The good: Newly renovated rooms with orange motif. Close to restaurants. The bad: Bedding appears clean, but feels scratchy with debris. They did not clean my room for a day. Reported it to the front desk and left message for manager, but nothing was done. No compensation provided. Services primarily transient guests for a night or two. Popular with many... More

The bed ... Was like laying on a rock. I knew the moment I sat on it that it would be a long night. But I'm spoiled. We prepaid for two nights with Expedia, but. I couldn't stay another night because I need my back for, uhm, stuff, so we checked out thenext day. The motel refused a refund request... More

I stayed at this Motel 6 for just one night because I ran the Clo-Cow Half Marathon there in Petaluma the next morning. I work in the hotel business and had my expectations and knowledge about Motel 6 hotels. I checked in after dark and there were two front desk agents there at the front desk. They welcomed me with...

Stayed here for 2 nights as all hotels in area were booked or $2000. per night. I was leery as I have never stayed in a Motel 6 before and had v. low expectations. I was pleasantly surprised by: how amenable the desk clerk was, how clean the room was, how the flooring was a sensible click faux paneling type,... More

My sister and I stayed here for 1 night while visiting Petaluma for a concert. We just needed a clean basic place to stay, and that's what we got.
