Dear Traveler, I apologize that we did not exceed your expectations. I am currently looking into the wi-fi issue, and I am very sorry that you missed the hotel on your first pass. As you may have noticed, there is major work being done by the city to replace the sewer mains for the area and unfortunately that has added some clutter behind our building. Regards, Robert E.

Having traveled via Amtrak to this area from Houston, I discovered that the party I was to meet expected me on December 26 rather than on Christmas Day. I hastily booked a room here at Best Western in Petaluma. What a pleasant experience! The reception area was tastefully decorated with an attractive Christmas tree and window decals. My room was clean and pleasant. I walked to a nearby restaurant that was recommended by the receptionist--tasty fare! I enjoyed walking about the area on Christmas Day, too. This was a quiet, pleasant Christmas celebration that I'll not forget. In fact, I am hoping to stay at this Best Western Inn again sometime.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights recently. The location is great. It is very convenient to the 101. There are many restaurants close by, many within walking distance. There is even a grocery store across the street. Check in was easy. The staff is very friendly. During our stay whenever we needed anything, the staff was always willing to help. We had a room on the second floor. There is no elevator so if you have a lot of luggage, you may want to ask for a room on the first floor. When we first pulled up, I was a little hesitant about staying here as the rooms all have outside doors. We stayed at another hotel after marijuana became legal in California and could not stand the smell of constant marijuana smoke. However, this is a non-smoking hotel inside and out so this was not a problem here. The room was clean. There was a refrigerator and microwave. The only thing that I wish it would have had was a bathtub. The breakfast was good. There were plenty of options. The seating area was a little small. It looked like there may have been more but it was closed off. Overall, we had a good stay and would stay here again if ever in the area.

Very comfortable reasonably priced and the staff was helpful. Good location and nice breakfast. I would go back and I would recommend it for sure. Also I need soft towels which they had and not the sandpaper you sometimes get.

Staying at the BW Petaluma Inn was horrible - the room was dirty when we arrived, and it was quite noisy since it was directly next to a very busy freeway. We had the end room downstairs, and there wasn't available parking near to the room. We tried the television and the internet, and neither worked. When we complained to the front desk, they said there wasn't anything they could do about the television or the internet and to keep trying, and when I told them the room wasn't up to par as far as cleanliness, they just dropped the subject. The next morning was pouring rain, and breakfast was served in a difficult to find room next to the pool (across the parking lot kitty-corner to the front desk). The woman in charge of keeping the breakfast room clean would not let anyone serve themselves or make their own waffles so it took a LONG time. I am very surprised that this is a Best Western and we will NEVER stay here again.

Dear Traveler, I apologize for not exceeding your expectations. Could you please forward me the date of your stay and the room number so I may further investigate this issue. As you can see by our other reviews, this is not standard operating procedure for us. Thank You, Robert E.
