We were heading home from a visit in Sonoma and was looking for a hotel between Sonoma and San Fransisco and close to the Marin County Civic Center. The Best Western Plus Novato Oaks Inn was an excellent choice. The room was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We decide to pick up some take out and just relax... More

My wife and I stayed here for a short overnight on a west coast road trip, but this hotel left me wishing we could have stayed there longer! It was a beautiful facility with very friendly front desk staff. Plus, it had 24-hour starbucks coffee available in the lobby, and very tasty cookies at check-in. We took our snack out... More

There aren't a lot of places to stay in Novato. This is just off 101 with nothing except a Burger King around it. It is clean and has a nice pool. There are cookies at 7 pm. Breakfast is varied and free. There were little pre made omelets, waffles and burritos along with the usual offerings. Our room was in... More

Stayed 2 nights as a part of our bay area San Francisco vacation. This hotel was a pleasant surprise as we usually stay with Hilton. Location is approximately 1/2 hour from SF, give or take a few for traffic. Easy access to Muir Woods which was beautiful. Nice area. Facilities were very nice. Clean room, decent size pool, nice fire... More

I love going there because I feel like a regular. It is easy parking. You can drive right up to the beautiful front door where you are greeted by a knowledgable receptionist. The rooms are large and well equipped with comfortable furniture. There is a large computer desk and good chair. I had a view of the oaks and another... More

The staff treat you as a valued member of their family. I have stayed here a few times and there has been no change in the high quality of customer service, the room cleanliness and comfort, and overall quality of the site.

Great place to stay with family on vacation. Nice hotel, well kept, great location. Can drive to Sonoma and Napa wine country or into the Bay Area. There is even a walking trail right behind the hotel!

The entrance and lobby are beautiful and the staff are friendly and accommodating. Room was nice and clean, small fitness room, tasty continental breakfast choices and a great hiking trail directly behind hotel. No complaints.

We stayed here with a tour group. The ladies who worked at the front desk were very helpful and answered all my questions. There was lemon water and warm cookies at the front desk which were soooo yummy. There aren't very many restaurants around to choose from if you have to walk. Our room was large, quiet and the beds... More
