Our daughter's wedding was July 3. Our party had reserved at least 35 rooms. The hotel was clean and inviting. The staff was friendly, incredibly helpful and personable. I brought "hotel bags" to be handed out and the front staff was accomodating. Our rooms were ready even early ( which met our needs for the festivities). The breakfast was fine... More

This is a very nicely appointed and well located place to stay. The desk and staff and the management are everything one could wish. The rooms are comfortable, clean and gracious. It's quiet and has a nice view out on the hill behind it. Not exactly a bargain price, but fair value. All this place needs is a better breakfast.... More

This was like a spa getaway experience. We stayed two nights and really didn't want to leave. Unexpected highlights included: - Beautiful golden California hill outside our guest room window - Western scrub-jays foraging on the hill each morning - Starbuck Verona and Decaf Verona just the way we like it - Heated outdoor pool big enough to actually swim...

You arrive to friendly, informative staff and freshly baked cookies. Room nicely furnished and clean. Room provided basic convenience appliances. Restaurant short walk next door. Little to no freeway noise. Inviting pool w/spa. Enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here during our last trip to visit family in Novato. We loved having use of the pool. The rooms are a decent size, and clean. Breakfast is included (from what I remember), and it has some good variety. We are returning this upcoming August, so obviously a good experience overall.

the free breakfast should not be used as a selling point by the hotel. the food quality was very cheap. for being right off of Hwy 101, it was incredibly quiet. the bed was comfortable I had a view of the hillside and heard birds tweeting in the morning. the restaurant across the parking lot was pretty good.

This hotel is a classy looking place just off the freeway between Petaluma and San Raphael. A BK and a restaurant are within walking distance, not much else. It's kind of an in-between sort of location. Plenty of parking and lots of inviting commons areas, including a great pool and business center. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and... More

Chose Best Western Plus, mainly because of price and location. 6 people in my party. Needed more than one room, but could not afford to pay San Francisco prices. Family suite 2 bedbrooms, 3 beds, 2 bathroom was perfect. Only 30 minutes from Fisherman's Warf, just north of the golden gate. Got up, had continental breakfast, drove to Muir Woods,... More
