“Overall comfort”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

We were incredibly surprised at the comfort of staying at a Best Western - previous experiences at different locations were well below standard - this hotel was excellent! Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Room was incredibly comfortable. View was relaxing - very quiet, clean. Large step down bath tub was a pleasant welcome after a long day traveling. Price was slightly high, but understandable given it was a weekend rate. Breakfast food was on the unhealthy side - would have preferred higher quality products. We will definitley being staying here again.

Hotel Staff was very nice and helpful. Room was nice and clean. Breakfast was okay would have been better it they had more of a variety of items especially for the price of the room. Stayed at less expensive hotels and had a better breakfast. Internet was very slow.

Thank you so much for the review. I would like to apologize because, from the sounds of things, you were not as quite blown away as we hoped. Being that we do not have a kitchen, we are somewhat limited in what we can offer. We are happy to hear any suggestions you may have. Thank you for the kind words about our our staff and the nice, clean rooms. If you ever find yourself back in the area I invite you to stay with us again.

Staff and Management at Novato Oaks Inn

Stayed here on our road trip up the coast before entering Napa. Room was nice and clean. Bed very comfortable. Quiet with no outside noise. Ate dinner at the WildFox restaurant next door which is pricey but very good. Went to the breakfast in the morning which was ok. They only have the one waffle maker and the line was held up by a guy that was making one right after the other. I got tired of waiting so left. Daughter had some cereal and yogurt as she was fine with that. The only other issue was that it was hard to find parking next to the room as the lot was near capacity. Other than that, it was a very nice stay.

This Best western provided an extremely comfortable pleasant room. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was definitely a step above most Best Western properties. I asked for a quiet room off the highway and it was provided. I slept well. Only area of improvement would be the breakfast offerings. For the quality of the property, which is an incredible value for the location, the breakfast products were average at best.

We have been staying here several times for work. Always a nice room with balcony. Breakfast is typical Best Western Plus. Nothing special but not bad. Staff is good and helpful. Easy Freeway access but not noisy. Nice pool area too.
