Had a horrible experience the night before at Motel 6 in Livermore. Was nervous as we checked in at Motel 6 Petaluma. Had to reserve Motel 6 due to death in the family. Fears were allayed as soon as we spoke to asst mgr Jonathan Uribe. Pleasant, knowledgable, and spoke English. Lobby was clean and appeared recently renovated. Rooms 249... More

Basically, this place is pretty basic as far as hotels go. But, as there are no decently priced hotels in Petaluma, nor any hostels to go on the super cheap and social side of staying, this place will do the trick to have a roof over your head for a night or two. It is also walking distance to Lagunitas,... More

The motel was under renovation when I went with my boyfriend but we were lucky enough to get one of the new rooms. The guy at the front counter was very helpful, gave us directions to some things to do nearby. And Lagunitas right down the street = awesome! New rooms are very cool, clean and a much needed improvement.... More

I recently stayed at this Motel 6, and it was a horrible experience!! They are in the middle of construction, and they did not inform us that this was happening. At 7:30am my girlfriend and I were woken up with power drills and saws. When we attempted to talk to the staff they were rude and shady. They told us... More

For a Saturday night in summer 2013, near to San Francisco the price was reasonable. We paid $70:58 for the night. The young girl on reception was great - Candice. She is a credit to the company. A very helpful woman.The room was old & tired. There was a smell of stale smoke. It was a non-smoking room. The room... More

This place was horrible. I had to stay there three nights because all other hotels were booked. Rooms were run-down with dirty carpet. The smallest TV I've seen in 20 years. Towels are paper thin and the only toiletries is a small cheap bar of soap. No fridge or microwave. The Internet cost $2.99 per day and was frequently not... More

Stayed at the Motel 6 Petaluma as it was a last resort... all other hotels in the area were booked solid. Run down & unsanitary conditions. Carpets were filthy, no hair dryer in room, beds were awful. Would recommend you keep driving other than stay here.

Room was run down. Price was decent. Don't forget to ask for senior discount! Did not find bed bugs. For a Motel 6 okay for the price. Has a couple of restaurants in the vicinity to eat at for breakfast and dinner. Petaluma is a nice town.

My honey and I stayed here over the weekend after a long day at the race track in Sonoma. Thank god we were really tired because the walls are so so thin you can hear EVERYTHING in the rooms around you. When we returned back from dinner we opened the door and actually heard the neighbor just talking to each... More

I looked for a good priced room in the area but we happen to go the a high school football camp for my son in Petaluma the same weekend as prom and the annual festival of butter and egg. So prices were a tab bit more than the place was worth. No change of sheets, dog and cat hair on... More
