We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. It is unique and a treat for the eyes. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were in Petaluma to attend a taping of a TWiT program and our stay at the Metro Hotel and Cafe rounded out the weekend.

We stayed in this hotel while we were visiting wine country and we were so pleasantly surprised. The room and the entire hotel was so very charming. It had everything you could possibly ask for. And the breakfast, albeit, simple was perfect. They had crepes with Nutella! You can never go wrong with that. And it was so reasonably priced... More

Metro Hotel is a wonderful, charming, quirky boutique hotel in a nice residential area of Petaluma. The rooms have an eclectic flair and out-of-the ordinary amenities such as bubble bath and wineglass/corkscrew. The property features several outside areas to sit and enjoy the ambience and there is always a beverage service available. The hotel is well within walking distance of... More

The unexpected "cherry on the cake" on my californian roadtrip This hotel has something the upper grade hotels miss...a spirit. You feel at home, vacation home actually. The people working there are welcoming and very nice. The place is french-inspired and decorated with taste and simplicity. The city center is a five minutes walk. A rare jewel !!!

If you love unique hotels with character, this is the place you want to stay. The lobby is full of antiques with French flair - it's the kind of place that makes you want to sit and stay a while. Crepes in the morning were tasty, and the coffee was also very good. We stayed in one of the Airstreams... More

Clean and comfortable, but mainly just plain fun! This place is so unique with loads of French flair from the decor to the hall lights that go on when you enter and then off when you pass through, even the crepes and good drip coffee in the morning, Definitely ask for a room in the back away from the parking...

This is a really cool and eclectic hotel. You can stay in your own Airstream, complete with a front yard and pink flamingos, or in the main hotel. The rooms in the hotel are fairly small, but really cute. Ours was on a corner with windows on two sides. The funky decor all around, which mixes history and absurdity, is... More

This place is fantastic! I will definitely be back. I actually tried to extend my stay, but they were (not surprisingly) already fully booked. It's in a great location - you can walk to everything. They have airstream trailers that you can stay in too which look fun! The staff are really welcoming and accommodating. Tim

I was searching for a charming and comfortable place to stay in Petaluma where my manfriend works. I had a romantic getaway in mind and came across The Metro online. We had just returned from Cancun and a huge all inclusive hotel there so we were looking for something cozy and intimate. We definitely found it here. The reservation made... More

The Metro, with its faux French atmosphere and kitschy artifacts, is a great deal. Inexpensive and comfortable and above all, clean. We love staying there. The odd check-in and check-out processes and the DYI breakfast add to the laid-back unconventionality.
