One of the nicest Motel 6s I have visited. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. Rooms come with a mini frig. The property is clean and well kept. Staff is friendly and very accommodating. The Motel is located in a business park so there is little traffic at night. Restaurants are within walking distance. RV parking on property... More

Nice hotel. Rooms are small but modern. Hardwood floors, contemporary furnishings, platform bed, raised sink. No breakfast but there are restaurants around. We had a problem on the morning we left...the boiler had gone out so there was no hot water. This was unfortunate for the hotel but they gave us a nice discount for the trouble.

I have to admit I don't usually stay at Motel 6 since they have had a tendency to be on the seeder side of accommodations but this one has proven me wrong. For a great price, we stayed in a clean, quiet, comfortable room (albeit few if any amenities) with a very professional and friendly staff. For those budget moments,... More

The Petaluma Motel 6 is a clean, modern and comfortable facility, close to family restaurants. But it was really lacking in some commonly expected amenities, such as in-room coffee, a bottle opener, and covenient ice dispenser. Friendly staff apologized for the poor wi-fi, and didn't charge, but were unable to help with the bottle opening: seems to me an absolute... More

I have been to many hotels for business and this one is nothing special their modern room design is pretty nifty but that's about it nothing special. Its a great place if you just need to sleep and go the area isn't to horrible yet again nothing special.

Typical Motel 6 room in cleanliness and decor......a bit smaller than usual for a double, and the price was higher than usual. May have been because of the location-but $96 (tax incl) is higher than what I'm used to paying for them. The room was clean, the property lovely, nice area. The front desk crew was busy but very accommodating... More

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
