“Happy Experience”
Reviewed July 16, 2013

Very attractive newly refurbished rooms. Great strict no smoking policy which one signs to uphold. Very helpful, friendly staff. Colorful, healthy plants blooming in planters and hanging baskets outside rooms creating an appealing environment. Pleasant space and good choices for continental breakfast. We definitely enjoyed our stay and felt it was an excellent value!

This is the second year in a row that we stayed at this Best Western. The staff is helpful, and the rooms are clean and roomy. It has to be one of the best hotel values in the area. For being between a main street and highway, we are surprised that noise was just an occational rumble of a Motorcycle. You find the hotel's free breakfast nook a little tight to manuver around, but there is ample seating area in an adjacent room. There is a new shopping center within short walking distance that provides anything you may need. We did use the ATM, Safeway, and enjoyed a Cold Stone Ice Cream there. It isn't the the newest or highest end hotel, but we always leave happy. We will be back again.

Petaluma is a nice town -- good restaurants, and fun to walk through and think about American Graffiti, which was filmed there, and Back to the Future, which helped inspire the flick. So, you need accommodations, right, and you want to get to Napa and spend your money there? Best Western Petaluma is good, safe, and a nice breakfast with friendly staff.

I stayed for two nights at this hotel in Petaluma simply because it was the best price in town. The room was what you would expect for the price -- nothing special, but it was clean and comfortable (though the lighting was dim in the room at night). The parking lot was small and very full, but I did get a spot each night. They serve the breakfast in a small room down by the pool, and it includes standard continental breakfast items. Unfortunately, I was up early in the morning (around 5am) on one of the days, and the breakfast was not available yet. I had to go across the street to the Peet's instead before heading out. The wifi was free and acceptably fast (though I didn't try to stream video or anything). Overall, this hotel delivered what I was looking for -- a comfortable place to sleep that didn't break the bank.

Very good is the rating they deserve. Much better than average but not one of the best. They did everything in an acceptable manner and their rates were good... not great but certainly not bad. Outstanding breakfast consisting of waffles, hard boiled eggs, Thomases English Muffins and more. And one very hard working woman tending the breakfast. You will not regret staying here. Nice swimming pool. Near all sorts of things like Safeway, Trader Joe's and restaurants.

Room Tip: Stay away from Washington Blvd side because of the noise.

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights here. We were a bit suspicious based on the online pictures, but we were quickly converted. A great place for the price - clean, the breakfast was wonderful, the pool was nice. The greatest asset, however, was the staff. They were fabulous! Everyone - the maids, the breakfast lady, the lobby staff. Especially Julie. She was incredibly helpful, from her restaurant recommendations to her extra effort in helping us get to SFO for our flight. I'd stay there again in a second.

Very old construction but well maintained. Electrical power, in my row of units, went out for about 20 mins. When my neighbor closed his door, my room shook. Some woman was shouting down at a Yellow Cab to wait a few mins at 3AM. Cold breakfast, no eggs and sausage as I was expecting. No coffee cups in room only paper cups. Mine leaked coffee on my table when I was out side and a stream of coffee ran under my mouse and was headed to my computer. Wet mouse seems to be ok. I slept well that's good....
