A friend had heard good things about the Metro Hotel & suggested it to me when I asked if she knew an affordable, nicer hotel in the Petaluma area. It looked charming on the website, & definitely not typical of any comparably priced accommodations. We had room 181, a ground floor Queen with its own enclosed small yard with a tiny deck with a cafe table & chairs. Rustic pine floors & quirky painted furniture complement the floral bedding, & a very battered leather club chair from the 1930's provides the lounge seating. Its patina includes the faint whiff of body odor & it completely bottoms out when sat in - all part of the ambiance. The bathroom sink is a tiny vintage wall hung model which is challenging to use, and made more so by the narrow glass shelf above it. The bathroom itself is very compact, with a small stall shower & no vanity. The bed was very comfortable & everything very clean. The organic coffee in the cafe is a delicious do-it-yourself individual drip method, but the cups are tiny. Pastries are also self-serve (check out the tupperware container in the fridge for large muffins), & multiple seating options include a large, sunny table, small booths in the cafe, or outdoor cafe tables. All in all, it was perfect for a very casual overnight or perhaps for a romantic interlude, with the feeling of being in a small French B&B, rather than in the middle of Petaluma. Parking lot behind the hotel, some street parking as well. Would definitely stay there again & would recommend if you're OK with a bit of quirkiness.
