There is nothing shocking - good or bad - about the family owned business. The room was clean, service was available when needed and the price was very reasonable. There are services close by. Coffee, restaurants, sports bar and much more are within easy walking distance. We found the Himalayan Cafe and Grill to be very welcoming and served excellent... More

This motel is good value for a quick overnight visit in Santa Rosa. The town center is a 20 -25 min. walk from the motel. Nothing fancy, just basic but very clean and decent. Service was friendly, breakfast can be skipped though.

We stayed at the North Bay Inn for one night in the end of august. We wanted something close to Napa Valley which made this motel a good choice. The room was large with wifi that worked well. Refrigerator and microwave were available in the room. There were several places to eat nearby. The breakfast that was included was not... More

The price was great. The room was clean and quiet, the front desk woman was very nice and efficient. There's lots of dining within easy walking distance. Perfect for the quick overnight stay I needed prior to a round of medical tests in Santa Rosa. Thank you!

Very spacious and clean room thou a bit outdated. Friendly and helpful staff and quiet even though our room was right by the road. Free wifi (faster than most), breakfast, tv package and fridge and microwave. All I needed for an overnight stay.

Recently stated here while visiting family in Santa Rosa. We were pleasantly surprised by this seeming 1950s throwback motor court (but thoroughly updated inside). Very clean and very kind manager (owner?). She was so helpful! It isn't fancy but it fit the bill!

Friendly staff and excellent service. More quiet than larger chain hotels I've stayed at. I travel for business weekly and couldn't have been more pleased with my stay at North Bay Inn. From now on when in Santa Rosa or the North Bay I will stay at North Bay Inn. Michael Knaus Ironwood Payments

Typical motor court style motel. The room was quite spacious but quite basic. They gave us just two bath towels. Everything did not work in the room. Free WiFi. No in-room coffee. People next door were smoking and talking outside our door at 2:00 a.m. Breakfast bar is decent with coffee, juice, Svenhard's, cereals and some fruit. OK for an... More

My husband was going in for surgery in the city and my sons needed to stay near the college so they wouldn't miss classes while we were away. Even though we had done this before, the woman at the front seat was so rude, I ended up having them stay further away from the college to keep from supporting the... More
