Hotel Petaluma
Ranked #5 of 9 Hotels in Petaluma
Reviewed February 27, 2013

The Hotel Petaluma is a little piece of history the town of Petaluma. Built in 23' this historic brick building is like that of the era. The HP is currently undergoing a refurb and with that a complete change over (currently the residential tenants have a 30 day notice to vacate). The rooms I stayed in (I had to change rooms midway through my trip) are comfortable and clean. No frills as the price I got on airbnb was a STEAL! (200 for the week for 3 weeks). Currently the internet is only in the public areas and the cable tv is still being worked on. There are big screen tv's in the rooms but can't be used w/o an antenna or cable hookup. I was in the area shooting a film and I needed to be near a place I could shop for the crew, and in this area near Bodega Bay and Dillon Beach the choices are kind of far. So staying here made sense. I discovered a lovely town, rich in history. The place actually looks like it could be in the north of England. Very similar in weather and architecture the people are lovely and the shops quaint. There is a Starbucks a stones throw away as well as a yoga studio (yogaonepetaluma.com ask for Shy), an upscale gourmet market (Petaluma Market), several top class restaurants (try Issan Thai) and a few music venues.
I feel like Jessica and Ricky (the managers) are making honest efforts to make this hotel a great place to visit and stay when in the wine country, Sonoma County. I recommend them highly. Remember, this place is in transition. Keep an open mind and you'll be happy you did. I will add photos soon.

Room Tip: Get a room with a private bathroom. The cost is a bit more but if you care about privacy its a must...
