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

I chose to book a room online at Motel 6 Petaluma specifically because the website stated that they have truck parking. I called ahead the next day to confirm that they did indeed have parking for trucks. They confirmed that they did, so I continued with my plans to stay there. However, the stay turned into an unpleasant experience that... More

Imagine the worst possible residential hotel, filled with people living in the hotel with their laundry hung about, working on their cars, playing music loudly, and letting their kids run loose. Imagine that with no luxuries whatsoever other than a basic bar of soap and teeny tiny towels and stained walls, scuffed furniture, a comforter with a cigarette burn in... More

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
