“The Best of a month long trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We stayed at this Best Western during a 6000 mile drive around the western USA and the staff at this hotel were outstanding with the help and advice and the way we were looked after, The rooms were superb and we were at the back which was nice and quiet, This was a 3 night stay so we could see a bit of San Francisco and before we went out we asked the lad on reception where to eat and he booked us a table with a stupendous view just a few miles up the road (I am sorry about not remembering his name as have submitted all the paperwork for the review I was carrying out on Best Western Hotels) but he was fantastic

We had a lovely room (room 3304) overlooking the pool. It was quite spacious with a balcony off the bedroom. The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom was large. The room was not even the best part of our stay. The staff was very friendly and gave us great ideas on what to see in the area. We took advantage of their recommendation to eat at Spinnakers in Salsalito.

Room Tip: Our room (3304) was on the back side facing the pool. It was quiet.

We've stayed at the Novato Oaks Inn (Best Western) for several years now when we come to the north Bay Area for both pleasure and business. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. The beds are very comfortable and linens are as well. Laundry facilities means we can travel light and wash as frequently as needed. Love walking in the nearby hills and into Pacheco Valley where you can see an abundance of deer and wild turkeys. In short, we won't stay any place but the Novato Oaks Inn when we're in the north Bay Area.

We were incredibly surprised at the comfort of staying at a Best Western - previous experiences at different locations were well below standard - this hotel was excellent! Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Room was incredibly comfortable. View was relaxing - very quiet, clean. Large step down bath tub was a pleasant welcome after a long day traveling. Price was slightly high, but understandable given it was a weekend rate. Breakfast food was on the unhealthy side - would have preferred higher quality products. We will definitley being staying here again.

Hotel Staff was very nice and helpful. Room was nice and clean. Breakfast was okay would have been better it they had more of a variety of items especially for the price of the room. Stayed at less expensive hotels and had a better breakfast. Internet was very slow.

Thank you so much for the review. I would like to apologize because, from the sounds of things, you were not as quite blown away as we hoped. Being that we do not have a kitchen, we are somewhat limited in what we can offer. We are happy to hear any suggestions you may have. Thank you for the kind words about our our staff and the nice, clean rooms. If you ever find yourself back in the area I invite you to stay with us again.

Stayed here on our road trip up the coast before entering Napa. Room was nice and clean. Bed very comfortable. Quiet with no outside noise. Ate dinner at the WildFox restaurant next door which is pricey but very good. Went to the breakfast in the morning which was ok. They only have the one waffle maker and the line was held up by a guy that was making one right after the other. I got tired of waiting so left. Daughter had some cereal and yogurt as she was fine with that. The only other issue was that it was hard to find parking next to the room as the lot was near capacity. Other than that, it was a very nice stay.
