“Perfect New Year's Eve”
Reviewed January 5, 2010

We like to go the Tommy Castro concert every year at the Mystic Theatre. We wanted to stay in town instead of driving home so we looked for a hotel. Thank Goodness we found the Metro because it turns a fun trip into a great trip. The hotel is adorable. Very unique with lots of well-styled attention to detail. It is within walking distance to the downtown area of Petaluma. We have stayed here three years in a row on NY Eve and it has been great every year. We could definitely stay longer.

This very unique hotel gives a sense of traveling in Europe - like we had just stepped off the plane in Paris. Everything is tastefully designed with a European flair. We love the setting, about a one-half mile walk to the town center and many great restaurants. Service was effective and very friendly. We'll definitely be back.

I am super critical about cleanliness in privately owned hotels--this place was absolutely spotless. The added bonus was the sweet interior design, authentic French accents and super friendly owners. We ate at the Central Cafe just down the street--another bonus being the location of this place. We will definitely go back!

We asked at a baby shop in town about a hotel....first given the highway then she thought about the METRO...boy were we lucky to take her advise. This hotel was our favorite by far while touring Napa and Sonoma counties for a week. Our room was about as nice as any room could be. The price was fantastic too.
Hakan greeted us when we signed in and could not have been more accomodating.
Thank you Hakan. We will definately stay again and share our "find" with whomever!

My lovely lady and I stayed at the Metro hotel for a little getaway weekend, checked out the Lagunitas brewing company, and walked around town. The Hotel was charming and vibrant from the outside, and a bright and airy common area greets the incoming guest. The colors of the decorations are great with the bright white walls, the cafe and sitting are are cute with quirky french items throughout. The innkeeper, Hakan, was friendly and helpful and a lot of fun to talk to about the differences between American and European culture. We stayed in the Airstream Trailer, which was fun and novel for one night, but I would book a room inside for more than one. As an innkeeper myself I have to say that the Metro Hotel has a good thing going. Clean, friendly, good location, great Thai food next door, excellent coffee with a fun do-it-yourself preperation.... what more could you ask for? ( I only docked points of value and room because the Bambi trailer was small, which it is supposed to be)

The Metro Hotel is a hidden gem in Sonoma County! You feel as if you've stepped back in time (in a good way!) to a charming, quaint hotel in Europe. Yet you are in beautiful, old town Petaluma, with all the lovely antique shops, restaurants and boutiques just a few blocks away, all in the heart of the Wine Country. Hakan, the innkeeeper is so accomodating and welcoming and you know you have made a new friend. Why stay in a big, cold chain when you can stay in such a charming and welcoming place as the Metro? I highly recommend you give it a try.

What a nice Hotel just block away from the center of Petaluma, if you are looking for a great hotel with clean and comfortable rooms look no further.

Hakan the Inn keeper was great about honoring all my requests.
