“All that is needed for a stop along the 101”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We stayed for one night for a stop over on our way to San Francisco. The room was comfortable and clean and the location is great, right off the highway and right by a Safeway for some quick groceries. It was a bit noisy due to the nearby traffic earlier in the evening but once we fell asleep we didn't notice. It was nothing fancy, but definitely all that we needed and would recommend this hotel.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

Stayed three nights with a pet. Good location for local breweries (Lagunitas, Russian River, etc.). Wine country (Napa) or the ocean are 30 minutes away. This is an older, well-maintained motel. The furthest units are next to Washington St., a very busy street with lots of noise. No problem with my noise canceling ear buds. Otherwise, a bit difficult to sleep if you are sensitive to noise. The room we were in (374) was clean, and had a nice microwave, coffee maker, and flat screen tv. The bathrooms were clean but need refinishing. The breakfast area was nice with a nice selection of items to choose from (cold cereal, instant oatmeal, fruit, make-your-own waffles, hard boiled eggs, donuts, bagels, etc.). Did not try the restaurant on site but heard good things. Staff was friendly. Lots of stores and restaurants within walking distance. Pet area is weak, but there is a nice park within walking distance.

A pet-friendly budget motel with breakfast, a pool and a decent restaurant attached. I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Staytowards the middle of the wing the lobby is on for the least road noise.

The motel was very clean and our room was huge. It was very close to historic downtown and about a hours drive from the wineries in Napa. Lots to see in downtown and surrounding area. Good base for trips.

The hotel is old, dated, small bathrooms, very minimal cold breakfast, crowded parking. Since there is limited choice in this city, they could do much better. While there sewer backed up and flooded shower.

Robert E, General Manager at BEST WESTERN Petaluma Inn, responded to this review, July 10, 2014
Dear Traveler,
Thank you for responding on tripadvisor regarding your stay. I apologize for not exceeding your expectations. We are an older property, but try to maintain the cleanliness and integrity of the property to our utmost ability. I did have a discussion with our maintenance staff regarding the shower issue and can assure you it was not a sewer back up into the shower. It was simply a clogged drain which they were able to successfully repair. I sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

I am happy to share with you that we are in the process of renovating every bathroom in the hotel. In the last year and a half we have installed new carpet, flat screen televisions, mattresses, window treatments, and linens. We have even upgraded our towels to a "premier" level for your comfort. I am confident that once the bathrooms are renovated, our rooms will step up to your standards.

Once again, I apologize for the inconvenience regarding the shower back-up.

Sincerely,
Robert Everhart, General Manager

Comfortable, clean, inexpensive, well located. Would have liked to have more choice on TV channels. Tissue paper holder was broken. Had to reset wall switch button to get coffee maker to work. Overall very satisfied.

I liked the roses, landscape, comfortable beds & breakfast. Friendly front desk staff. Better priced than Sonoma & San Francisco hotels and conveniently located near Bay area and Wine Country. My family was in the area to visit relatives and tour Golden Gate Bridge Park. I would stay here again.
