This is the best hotel to choose when traveling north of San Francisco, even if venturing into the wine country. It is so convenient and quiet, very much a modern cozy Inn, not a busy, noisy hotel...or a chintzy motel!! We travel annually to visit family in Petaluma, Sonoma and Santa Rosa and have never stayed elsewhere the last 10 years. And each year we see the continuing improvements and amenities at this Inn. Five stars for us!!!!

We very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. All of the staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. The room was spotless and looked newly decorated. The bed was comfortable, there was a flat screen TV, free Wi-Fi and a table and chairs. Breakfast was a good selection of make your own waffles, cereal, fruit, pastries, donuts, bread etc. The coffee was delicious! Their was plenty of seating and everything was well stocked and the tables and counters were very clean. We would definitely come here again.

We stayed here after 2 nights in the city. Great location in between city and wine country. hotel was clean, comfortable, plenty of parking. you will have access to main highway 101 with extreme ease. We rode to wine country about 25 mins. Sonoma was very nice. we then took an excursion to Petaluma. Beautiful small town, farmers market, river walk, nice restaurants, nice downtown.
this is a great hotel at moderate price and excellent location.

Room Tip: we had a room facing the highway and noise levels were almost non existent with patio door closed.

I recently stayed at the Novato Oaks in Novato, California. It's part of the Best Western chain, and is an exemplary location. Great curteous staff, large clean rooms, hi-speed wi-fi, good freeway access, and a terrific hotel on property. Good free breakfast in the morning. I've stayed there several times over the years and will again.

This hotel is well designed and attractively appointed. The rooms are pleasant and well lighted. The ADA rooms are well appointed and convenient which is a real plus. Unfortunately, the breakfast is standard motel fare, the only minus for this property.

Thank you for taking the time to fill out the survey. Although you made some nice comments, clearly we failed to meet your expectations. I appreciate your contribution about your disappointment with the complimentary continental breakfast. We will always try make updates and changes based on our customers suggestions where we can. Thank you for the valuable input.

Have stayed here in the past and it is a nice facility and location. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, lots of space. But wow! they have not done a good job using sound dampening technology. Unless there are few guests surrounding you or you are set way away from the parking lot and road, it is pretty loud.

That's really unusual for this property. We must have had some excessively noisy guests. Thank you for the valuable input.

I stayed in a large King room, very nice. Balcony with outdoor seating. Fitness room, business center, friendly staff. Restaurant adjacent. They did have meeting rooms at this location also. Close to the Sonoma vineyards and convenient to 101.
