“Simple, but comfortable and friendly”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

We needed a place to stay in Santa Rosa due to a family emergency. The North Bay Inn is reasonably priced for the area and conveniently located. Our room was simple, but freshly painted and spotless. It included a small refrigerator and microwave and is close to a number of restaurants. The management is exceptionally friendly and helpful.

I stayed with a group of 10 and the room arrangements were made easy by the staff.
The group agreed the stay was simple and comfortable. I liked that the room was not
high tech, just a touch of the older style Inns. Short drive to Downtown, easy. I rated
cleanliness as very good.

We stayed three nights. My title tells all but two other comments: the price was not great but ok, their breakfast consisted of cheap packaged pastries to take back to the room (but there is a great restaurant - Lita’s Cafe - very close), and the toilet required a plunger – twice. A ‘poor’ rating would be unfair, but they don’t quite measure up to average; thus, a grade of C-.

Basic room. No real breakfast although that was listed as amenity--manager grudgingly made coffee. Only small packaged coffee cake available in office. Not worth staying there.

Room Tip: Go somewhere else.

We stayed over on the way from LA to Humboldt. The staff were friendly and the room clean and quiet. Remodeling construction at the property next door started early - but they should be done by now. Quite a few inexpensive dining options near-by. Many coffee shops near by for the morning.

The room had a musty smell, even though the door was already wide open when we arrived. I opened the window and turned the fan on to air it out and the A/C-heater fan is very loud, no way could I sleep with it on. I didn't want to put my food in the refrigerator because the smell inside was so bad. Although there was a refrigerator and microwave, I was disappointed that there was no coffeemaker in the room. The "complimentary breakfast" was bananas and wrapped pastries. The room is overpriced. The positives are that the motel is close to Highway 101, the lady at the registration desk was very friendly and the room was clean and spacious.
