Best Western Petaluma Inn
Ranked #2 of 9 Hotels in Petaluma
Reviewed February 18, 2014

We appreciated our comfortable stay in a two-queen-bed room, Room 253, which faces the parking lot and pool. We had a short walk to the breakfast area that includes a separate seating room with subdued lighting. Ample complimentary breakfast includes make-your own oatmeal cereal and waffles. We walked across the street to shop a supermarket, other stores, and bank/ credit union with ATMs. Nearby (within walking distance), there are a variety of restaurants with international cuisine (Chinese, Thai, Mexican, and other).

Front-desk staff were friendly and helpful with providing requested information about local places of interest. The hotel was full up with wedding party guests, soccer team members, and general travelers. All were quiet during the normal sleeping hours. A great value and central location to historic downtown Petaluma shops and waterfront area, as well a nearby shopping, several restaurants, and a large city park with a duck pond.

Great experience overall. Nice, clean, large room (two king beds/ separate seating area with a love seat/ two televisions). Front desk staff and housekeeping staff all very friendly. Continental breakfast was surprising... waffles, hard boiled eggs, doughnuts, bagels, cereal (hot & cold), coffee, tea. We generally don't do the hotel breakfasts, but we did here. I would definitely stay here again.

Front desk is not willing to help especially Linda, very rude!! Management doesn't follow up. This is a hotel of choice of construction workers and the hotel is exterior corridors so during the late afternoon and evening hours most of the room doors are open and people are loitering the halls, drinking, smoking and being very loud. The work trucks are large and take up several parking spaces forcing you to park further away from your room. Choose another property!

I thank you for your response and apologize that you did not enjoy your stay. We always let our customers know that there is someone at the front desk 24/7 and we always deal with noise complaints quickly and professionally. This can seen in our other TripAdvisor reviews regarding our service levels.

It is true that there are several construction crews staying with us (some of them have been here for over a year), but this is the first noise complaint we have received regarding these crews (they're usually ready for bed when they are done working). Should you decide to stay with us again, we will ry to accomodate you in any way we can to make your stay more pleasurable.
Regards,
Bob Everhart, General Manager

Comfortable, adequate breakfast, not noisy. Room in very good condition. Good sized flat screen TV. Heater/AC works well. Nice sized fridge. Good counter space for single sink. Had a queen room, which was a little small for two people. Close to town. Didn't like the driveway. Desk only has room for one person. Can only turn south on McDowell out of driveway. But all in all a good value. We will be back.

If you are in the area and needed a comfortable place to stay, this will do. The price is good for what you get, but it's no big deal. Nothing to brag about, really. Just a comfortable motel. Don't know why they call it an inn. The locations sucks!!!

Centrally located with eacy access to the freeway and in town access. The rate was very reasonably priced. I usually dont sleep well in a hotel but, I came back here after a previous stay because the beds are very comfortable...Slept very sound. The staff is also very friendly & accomodating

When I visit my friends in Petaluma every New Year's Eve, I have found the Best Western Petaluma Inn to be both comfortable and convenient. And with a very nice breakfast selection. I recommend it highly.
