If I ever happen to be in this area again, I will definitely be staying at this best western. Rooms are clean and spacious. They gave us a complimentary microwave for use during our stay. Since my fiance just got out of the hospital and we were confined to this room for a week we enjoyed the spacious patio connected to our room as well as the pool area. My only complaint would be that the continental breakfast didn't have the greatest options for kids, but no worries, there are plenty of eateries and shopping nearby.

I travel to this area at least once a year for a military unit reunion and family business. The Novato Oaks Inn is always my first choice. HINT: If you know you're going to be in the area book this Inn as soon as possible...Refer to the Infineon Racetrack schedule: If there is a NASCAR event this place gets booked almost immediately, along with the other decent area hotels. I stay here because it has consistently provided the best service and amenities. The location is perfect if you want to visit the just immediate area or the various attractions such as the Sonoma/Napa wine country, San Francisco, Discovery Kingdom in Vallejo, the Northern California beaches, etc. The Inn staff will be more than helpful to meet any of your needs.

We stayed just one night and it was worth it. Nice place set up against the mountain. It has a rural feel to it, even though you are not far from anything. Very friendly and fast checkin, rooms are clean and comfy, breakfast is yummy and the pool area is just a nice place to sit out in the morning. Most rooms seem to have a small outside deck area. I would recommend a room at the back of the Hotel to get away from the freeway noise (it was not too bad). I am sure that if you had a room facing the hill you would probably see some deer out at dusk or morning. You could use this place as a good jumping off point for the Wine Country and San Francisco. I highly recommend it.

Spent two nights at this hotel. The lobby is comfortable and welcoming. There is a library where you can grab a book to read (and keep) with no charge, a really cool touch screen TV where you can get directions and print them, a computer to print boarding passes and a 24 hour coffee bar! Check in was pleasant, quick and efficient. We booked a room with two queen beds and it was awesome! The beds are so comfortable that I didn't want to leave. The bathroom large and clean. We had a view of the hillside and saw a few deer munching away. The TV had a ton of channels and on the second day we just watched movies and relaxed. We swam at the pool and enjoyed the hot tub. They have ping pong and a really great fire pit to hang out by. The deluxe breakfast consisted of waffles, Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches, donuts, muffins, danishes, hard boiled eggs and a variety of cereals, bagels, and bread for toasting. Very delish! I would definitely recommend this hotel and would not hesitate to stay again. Also, the restaurant on the property the "WildFox" was delicious and there is a Burger King across the street you can walk to. Easy freeway access.

Looking for a nice place to rest. Look no further. This hotel is very clean, quite, and comfortable.
You will experience a friendly, helpful staff for all your requests. The morning breakfast is great.
We do highly recommend this hotel for your overnight visits.

This place was nice- the rooms were pretty average, but still nice, and definitely a good bang for your buck. My favorite part was the blacony- the sunshine was fantastic and I enjoyed sitting outside my room soaking up the sun.
The establishment was clean and the staff was nice. The breakfast was pretty decent- although some of the kids staying there would consider it to be stupendous- they got a big kick out of the waffle maker :)
The restaurant next door was quite nice, and overall this hotel was located in the perfect place with easy access to the main roads.
