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

My journey to Petaluma and Motel 6 started off with me getting lost. I called the motel and spoke with Ken, one of the agents. I stated my quandary and he proceeded to give the proper directions. When he sensed that I was still lost and a little confused, he continued to stay on the phone with me until I... More

We go every year on Business and always stay in the Motel 6. It's affordable and the staff is always pleasant and eager to help. Most Motel 6's aren't very nice, there just a place to sleep, but this one has been remodeled and they don't allow just anyone off the street in. No drugs, no theft, no late night... More

I was surprised to find out that Motel 6 no longer provides shampoo for guests. At a time when other hotels are ramping up their customer service, Motel 6 has decided to nickel and dime their guests. We were also told that guests will soon have to pay for wi-fi. While the front desk folks were helpful and friendly, I... More

After a long drive I showed up and the reservation center had lost my reservation. The hotel was sold out for the night, but a super helpful and kind receptionist (Amanda) took care of all my needs. The service was better than most hotels four times their price. Over all, the room is spotless and comfortable, For the price you... More

Its a great hotel for the money! Customer service is also good in the little bit of chat I did have. It was a quick check in. Modern looking and it looked clean to me. For what it is, it's a good place for a short check-in.

Best recommended. Good and clean rooms, small swimming pool, excellent customer and reception service (24 hours). Very suggested for families, but also for people travelling for business reasons. Strongly suggested

Stayed here 6 nights, it is clean, guy asked if i wanted room up or downstairs, i took ground floor because it was closer to the car, but think it's best to get room upstairs, I think because they took up the carpets and put in hard wood floors, which are nice and clean, but you can hear the people...
