We were looking for a place close to San Francisco on our Road Trip. This place had good reviews, and we booked. I was greatly surprised. Wonderful staff. Wonderful rooms a great breakfast, and they had a fun ping pong table, and pool for our toddler. Would definitely stay again!!!! It was about a 20 min drive North of San Francisco.

We were booked to stay here three nights but had to change the dates and they couldn't accommodate us all three nights so we stayed at the Corte Madera Best Western. There is no comparison between the two and this seemed to us to be a much nicer facility. They're about 10 miles apart so although Corte Madera is closer to San Francisco, this one is also conveniently located.

The staff here was just great and really helpful. We wanted to go to SF when we checked out of Corte Madera but didn't want to leave the luggage in the car. We called and they said they could have a room ready for us by 9:30 so we were able to check in and go sightseeing.

The room was very nice and we only had two small complaints - our room faced the highway so we heard road noise but once we closed the curtains, it was fine. The second thing was the poor internet connection but I went to the lobby and the reception was fine.

My husband and I stayed one night at a poshy hotel in Sonoma and did not like it whatsoever and paid four times what we paid at this Best Western! The staff here is great...its a good location and close to a nice shopping center with good food. If we are ever in Novato or on our way to the Bay Area in California, we will stay here again.

We stayed here after touring San Francisco bay area, headed north over the Golden Gate on route 101, about 30 minute drive out of the hussle and bussle of traffic and congestion. The Hotel and staff were a delight. Nice rooms, nice pool, comfortable, relaxing, facilities are in top condition. We had dinner at the Wild Fox restaurant. The hotel offers a very nice continental breakfast. The next day we toured Napa Valley and Wineries. One exit from the hotel take route 37 to Napa Valley, great sights along the way. Loved eveything about this hotel, location, service, friendly staff, convience to points of interest. I would recommend this hotel to friends.

This is a lovely hotel. The rooms are a good size, flat screen tvs, nice pool area (pool was chilly-ish), decent continental breakfast. We would have been delighted with our stay, except that none of the adults in our party (my husband and I and my father-in-law) slept a wink the first night, and the second night my father-in-law finally took a sleeping pill so he could. The mattresses are super-padded, like giant feather pillows, and crunch loudly every time you move. I am not a mattress snob by any stretch, but I honestly have never gone two nights without sleep in a hotel before. The alarm clock in the room is very brightly lit, and there is a flashing yellow dsl light on the phone that I finally threw a shirt over. The lights probably wouldn't have been a problem if I'd been sleeping, though. I hate to complain... but this was really too bad for such a good hotel. The staff were really friendly, too... what a shame. A/C was pretty loud, too, but we solved that by running it full blast while we were gone so we wouldn't have to run it at night.

Stayed here for an event at Infineon Raceway. Was pleasantly surprised with great customer service, relaxing atmosphere, clean rooms. Deluxe Rooms are huge and have jetted tub in the bathrooom, which is a nice plus after a long day. Nice easy access to Hwy 101. Would actually go back just for a getaway!
