The motel lies along the Medicino road with busy traffic during daytime At night it gets quiet. The room was big and basic but clean and so was the bathroom. The TV had a reasonable selection of channels, lots of telsels. Free WiFi internet worked very good with a good speed for streaming media. Breakfast was poor, just some pastries,... More

My mother and I stopped here for a night while on a road trip. Although it's an older motel, it was clean, super spacious and very comfortable. The manager was very friendly and quite helpful in making suggestions for dinner. In the past, I've paid a whole lot more to stay at fancy hotels and resorts, but on this trip,... More

Excellently positioned for a route coming from San Francisco and entering the wine country, we chose this motel during our car trip along the coast. Having driven out of San Francisco in the late evening as hotels are incredibly expensive there, this offered much better value only 45 minutes away! Rooms are tidy, the hotel is in a quiet surrounding... More

I have stayed in better motels of this type. Had a mouldy smell when the water was draining away.Next to a very busy road too. i would not say that this property is value for money, in fact I think it is expensive for what one gets.

Stayed here for one night and it was worth the price. Easy to find from the main highway and the rooms were clean and very large. Very basic but no complaints. Staff was friendly. Free WiFi and lots of parking. Neighbourhood seemed safe.

I can only echo previous reviews that indicated the positive experience to be had by choosing this unassuming (single-story, external-entry) motel... yet finding it quite clean & well-maintained, more comfortably furnished than you'd expect, and nice and quiet to boot. (It's on a main boulevard, but even on a Fri. night with the youth of Santa Rosa out and about... More

Based on reviews and price we stayed here for 2 nights recently. The management was nice, room was clean, quiet, bed was comfy, easy access to street, breakfast was typical continental. During the summer this area is very expensive so we felt lucky to get our room for a decent price. This is definitely better than a Motel 6 since... More

Without TA, I wouldn't have seriously considered North Bay Inn, but I'm so glad I did. I stayed for one night for a weekend in Wine Country and was beyond pleased. As others have said, this is a traditional motel. There are no frills, but what you get is a very solid experience. I stayed in Room #120, which is... More

I was in the area for a workshop. I wanted above all a quiet, CLEAN, secure place, located near Highway 101 (but not too close) and of course not expensive which is not easy in this area. The North Bay Inn is a simple, traditional motel that met my requirements. The lady at the reception was really nice and that... More

Price was ridiculously high, and the verbiage about how well the place was appointed was very over the top. Clean, but not anything better than motel 6 for half the price. Staff was pleasant but certainly did not go out of their way to be helpful.
