“Great place and reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We stayed two nights here, and we were very happy with our stay. The price was good, and Best Western gives a military discount which always helps. The staff was friendly and helpful and the room was very clean and overlooked the pool. We had a very nice stay here.

Conveniently located near Discovery Six Flags is its only redeeming quality. The carpet throughout is filthy, the ac in the room was worthless. The elevator was out of service and by the tattered note has been that way for a while. The rooms were low grade at best and the breakfast area was mobbed. Not what I am used to in a Best Western Plus

Wanting a cheap hotel alternative to the place in Napa and Sonoma, we opted for this Best Western in American Canyon. The rate wasn't bad at $64 a night via Priceline. I thought it was a good value. Our double queen room was clean and spacious and overlooked their heated pool and hot tub. Even in early October it was warm enough to go swimming during the day.

They had a complimentary breakfast every morning consisting of coffee, juice, muffins, and bagels. Laundry facilities are on the first floor close to the lobby in a small room with one washer and one dryer. Each load is $1.50. There was free wifi in the room but the signal was inconsistent and weak most of the time.

Most of the staff, save for one girl who worked there the afternoon we checked in, was nice and always greeted us with a smile.

The drive to Napa is about half an hour with traffic, which was bumper to bumper in the afternoons. I'd consider staying there again in the future. It's also about half a mile from Six Flags.

We spent Saturday night here (me, my wife and our 3.5 year old). We had a suite that had a king bed and a pull out couch. We opened up the couch and pulled out the mattress and threw it on the floor, and it was perfect for our son. The "free" breakfast consisted of baskets of muffins and pastries, scrambled eggs, breakfast sausage, assorted cereals, fruit, waffles, and juices. Everyone was able to get a little something they liked before we headed back to the park for another day of rides and fun. Although they ran a free shuttle to and from the park, we used our car since we have season passes and a season pass for parking. I think the 20 minutes I spent in the pool with my son was the highlight of the weekend for him. I wouldn't hesistate to stay here again. Although older posts speak about certain problems, we experienced none of that on our visit.

I found this property to be acceptable to very good in all cases. The property is clean and I didn't see any areas of deferred maintenance. The staff was friendly and responsive, and the breakfast was also decent - although as another reviewer mentioned, the area is a bit small and can become pretty crowded.

We did not have a microwave or mini fridge in our room, which was a shame, as we were traveling with small children, and such additions are always handy for all the various things that kids need/want. In that the property is right next to a major theme park, and many guests do have children with them, I would think this might be something the Best Western might want to consider.

The property itself does border a neighborhood that looks a little sketchy, but throughout our stay, I didn't feel any undo concern.

The only thing I would have to say is that the breakfast lounge was very small for the amount of people that comes in. I just took my breakfast upstairs in room. I wouldn't let that stop me from coming back and having the shuttle was great!! Orlando was awesome;).

I read several reviews on Tripadvisor, prior to our weekend in Vallejo. I was worried that we would book a room in a terrible hotel, after reading some of the reviews of the area. This hotel is very clean (inside and out) and well decorated. The staff is very friendly and helpful, saying hello, good morning, etc when people walk by. Our room (King bed with couch fold-out bed) had micro, fridge, iron/board and hair dryer. The rooms were large and very clean, and the bed was comfortable!

Breakfast included the typical cereral, muffins, juice, etc, but also had a waffle maker, hard boiled eggs and sausage. The breakfast area was large with several tables. The staff kept all the food items filled quickly, despite the 15-plus people who were eating at the time. Overall, I was very impressed!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
You're in for a treat at this spacious Vallejo hotel where the best the Golden State has to offer is right outside your door. Six Flags® Discovery Kingdom is our neighbor, which means that you simply have to stroll across the street for a day full of fun. Want something a little more laid back? Napa Valley is also nearby, so an afternoon of wine tasting is an absolute must. This Vallejo hotel is only 15 minutes away from Napa Valley, so a cab ride is an easy choice. We're the best hotel in Vallejo for adventure seekers. The heated outdoor pool and hot tub is open year round for a little relaxation after a day of exploration. Free parking and free shuttle service to Six Flags® Discovery Kingdom are just a couple of the ways guests are treated like family. No other Vallejo hotel can compare. If you're interested in something a little different, you're in luck. Our Vallejo hotel is near several dog shows at Solano County Fairgrounds and the Jelly Belly® Factory. This is one unusual match that really works. Speed lovers delight at the NASCAR® and Indy Grand Prix at Infineon Raceway. Of course, sometimes you're traveling on business. Maybe you're taking your high school senior to check out Touro University. Maybe you're in town with Valero® Oil Refinery, Chevron Oil Refinery, or have business to take care of on Mare Island. Maybe you need to host a business meeting or event in our convenient business room. There's no reason you can't fully enjoy your stay just because you're punching the clock or writing tuition checks. Enjoy a full breakfast before starting your day - it's on us. ... more   less
