I used there venue for my fathers birthday party, the staff was very helpful and it was all so beautiful that the renovations did not bother us one bit, all the guests complimented it and it's a unique place in the heart of Petaluma definitely recommending the place, plus it's affordable.

This place is a great location for strolling around the antique stores and restaurants in old Petaluma. The renovation in progress appears to be decent, but nothing spectacular. Cute little wine tasting establishment just off the lobby. But they are keeping the original Windows as part of the upgrade, and the street noise is the worst I've ever experienced in... More

With helpful and genuine staff and a beautiful old 'core' of a hotel, it will be an amazing place.... Sadly it is in turmoil currently with works underway inside and outside. The staff and the welcome letter don't hide this fact but even the adjusted, lower prices don't really compensate. The sound proofing between floors (all sounds transmitted via wooden... More

The Hotel Petaluma is very promising. Promising to be better after the renovations. I was expecting to be able to use the courtyard as the hotel's website stated that it was "significantly restored." I have included pictures...the fountain is not plumbed (pipes were sticking up out of it - no water in it), there is plywood covering what I assume... More

I stayed for two nights there in July 2016. While we understand that the construction is being done, the quality of work is not up to any professional standard. This was the second time we visited the hotel mostly for historical reasons. The first time I found plumbing problems. This time the bathroom sink came off the wall where it... More

Hotel Petaluma is a unique historic building and is currently under major renovation. I rated it low but if the renovations are well done it would be worth trying again. The plus side is the location. Hotel Petaluma is right downtown the quaint city center and wonderful restaurants, wine bars, and antique stores are in easy walking distance. The downside... More

Recently renovated, but was still able to nab a room at budget hotel prices - probably because of the construction going on. The construction noise didn't bother me, as it was almost entirely when I was away from my room. The new rooms are nice, with wall mounted flat TV, Keurig coffee maker, new beds that are pretty comfortable. Bathroom... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay at the charming Hotel Petaluma. Otis is the coolest elevator! This hotel was built in the 20's and is currently undergoing renovation. The staff was very upfront ahead of time about the construction and what to expect from our stay. We were very pleased with Maria and the rest of the staff;... More

We stayed for two nights recently and I thought it was a charming hotel. I knew construction was going on and everything that has been remodeled was very nice. The location was excellent and we could walk all around town. The wine/cheese bar just next door is not to be missed!

Booked a last minute room here without any high expectations. Hotel is really old and has a lot of character, rooms are nice, and staff was not the friendliest but they got us checked in. The hotel is under construction, so do expect noise in the morning. We got a room facing the street, which is REALLY noisy at night.... More
