“Good Location, Comfortable+”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Great Value. Comfortable, clean and fairly quiet. Check in was pleasant and informative.
Good location when staying in the north bay. Close to shopping and eateries. Nice community to visit. Everything worked and I have a nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask the clerk, very helpful with room selection. My room was on the Western ave side and noise dies...

Great place for a quick stay. Facility is very clean and located in the middle of Petaluma right off of the 101. Room was very clean, bed was comfy, and it was quiet all night long. Great shopping center across the street with a starbucks, grocery store and a couple of restaurants.

Stayed there late Jan. 2013. Room was clean & everything I needed was there. Room fixtures all worked & bathroom caulking, tile, etc. were nice & new-looking. Sat. night was quiet. Front desk gave me a room per my requests (quiet, downstairs, not close to fwy. off ramp) & was pleasant about it (Jan. 26 afternoon desk staff). Breakfast was the standard motel American fare - if they cld improve, it wld be to provide yogurt w/o sugar & some wholewheat bread & cereal options. Everything was white flour & sugar. Contrary to popular belief, many Americans are trying to eat better these days! The waffle iron was a nice concept tho! 2% milk was available for the coffee/tea. The heater worked well, altho much of the heat went up behind the short curtains (so I placed something on the sill to hold curtains down). In summer, there is a pool also. Right off the 101 fwy. off ramp, but the I never heard any traffic. I wld definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: if getting a queen bed room, ask for room as far away from off-ramp as possible.

I have stayed at this hotel twice. It is very convenient to the highway, and in spite of being close to traffic, the rooms are very quiet. Quality of furnishings is very good, and the rooms are clean. Management was responsive to questions and billing problems. Will return.

This is an old BW on the freeway, yet not affected by the traffic. Te manager was extremely congenial and ready to please. The rooms are updated with good linens and comfortable bed. The place adjoins two shopping centers for ease in getting food or other needs. Appearances mislead. This is better than more modern looking motels we have used over the years.

Happy with our stay at the Petaluma Inn (Best Western). We got a great deal online ($67.99 plus tax). Front desk very accommodating in our request for upper floor quiet room. Room was clean, comfortable bed, nice shower with substantial towels, refrigerator + microwave. Breakfast (included) was adequate, though we went near the end of the breakfast time and the stock was running thin or out on some items. Only serious complaint - the walls in the room are very thin. We could hear the guest next door snoring. Despite this, we would stay here again if in the area - a great value and good location for visiting Sonoma and wine country.

We stayed one night in room 223 I think. It was right behind the reception and upstairs. Room was nicely updated with flat screen and mini fridge. There's a Safeway nearby for your thirst needs and the place was pretty quiet for being on a busy street. I was given a good deal even when just arriving without reservations on a Wednesday night. Don't know how close to downtown it was because we only visited Lagunitas the entire day. The other places nearby Lagunitas seemed more run down compared to here. Nice, comfy stay and would defiantly stay again!
