It was clean and safe place to stay. I booked the hotel on 3 things location, price, breakfast. Breakfast was a joke muffin tasted old they did have hot chocolate. I thought I would save on breakfast but that wasn't the case. Rooms are small but clean I do think that for what you get it could have cost less.

This hotel is quite small as was the room itself, but the room and bathroom were very clean. Our bed was comfortable and the area was fairly quiet. It was exactly as we had expected for the rate we paid. If you are looking for a luxurious hotel with plenty of amenities and sitting room, this is not it. But,... More

We needed a place close to the VA in SF and this worked out well for us. The surrounding area isn't great, but we never had any issues. The bed was very comfortable, the room, was clean and big, and the fridge and microwave in the room was a nice addition. There is some traffic noise, but we use a... More

After reading a few reviews, I was a little worried about whether or not I picked a good motel. Once there all my concerns went out the window. Staff is very nice and helpful. The room was very clean, beds were comfortable and my husband loved that we had a nice size TV instead of the tiny ones some hotels... More

My husband and I stayed here for a week for the last week of July 2014. The room was clean, the lobby was clean, and the service was excellent. There is a coffee shop around the corner for specialty coffees and pastries. The only negative was that the website states they have complimentary bottled water; when we asked for it,... More

This motel was perfect for our needs as we began a roadtrip to the Redwood Forest. We landed in San Francisco late in the evening, picked up a rental car and made the easy 30 minute drive to the North Bay Inn. The clerk was friendly and pleasant, and the room was spacious and very clean. We slept like babies... More

This motel is on the edge of an industrial neighborhood and is sited directly off the freeway. There were guys hanging out on the curb just outside of our room and I worried about theft and personal safety. But the room itself was surprisingly comfortable and clean, and the noise outside never bothered us inside and we didn't experience any... More

We stayed two nights this last weekend. Our stay was very nice and we already have reservations for next weekend. The bed was very comfortable and the room was quiet with no noise from the street. TV was above average size for a hotel and the room was clean and roomy. The location is perfect for attending concerts at Terrapin... More

I stayed here while my apartment was being readied. I had tried some of the other nearby hotels and was very pleasantly surprised by North Bay Inn. This place was by far the most comfortable of any in the area. Staff was excellent as was housekeeping. I stayed on the 2nd floor in a large room and the King bed... More

The room was clean and comfortable, and the price was good. However, it was very noisy in the early morning, due to being right next to the highway. Unless you are a really sound sleeper, the noise will wake you up at about 6:00 a.m. Also, the parking lot is overcrowded at night, and there does not seem to be... More
