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. The staff was friendly enough, the pool looked clean and our room was VERY clean. It was just nothing special or exciting. My only real complaints are that is was loud... More

We stumbled across this hotel at 9 p.m. after being unable to find a room anywhere else we'd looked in the area. By that point we were ready to settle for just about anything with a bed, but we were pleasantly surprised at the quality and value at this motel. The room was small but adequate for the two of...

Stayed here after a few too many beers at Lagunitas next store, figuring it couldn't be too bad. I was very drunk when I went in to my room, and I still realized how grimy it was. There was an ashtray on the night stand turned upside down with a no smoking symbol on it. The room stunk of stale... More

The price is good. The front desk staff are friendly and helpful. It does appear to be more of a residential hotel, as there were many regulars doing their laundry and hanging about. I did not not feel comfortable in the surroundings. Free but slow Wi-Fi, comfortable enough bed and it is basically clean. The room is sparse with no... More
