“Clean, safe, peaceful and reasonably priced! Can't beat it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We (my wife, newborn and myself) had a terrible motel experience last night with original plans to stay at one place for two nights. We couldn't bare another moment in that place. Then we found the North Bay Inn.

For our budget, it was perfect. It's a small, 20 room inn but the rooms (we had a double bed room) are spacious, clean and have a microwave, full sized fridge and decent channel selection on their DISH network TV. The place is super quiet besides the occasional loud vehicle passing on the nearby street. I haven't heard another tenant whatsoever. We also got wifi included in the price which was essential for me as I'm a writer. The wifi is protected and has a password that they give you at check in. Their internet is plenty fast and doesn't cut in and out like I experience at most hotels. Overall, North Bay Inn is definitely a wise choice for the price and there's plenty of eateries and stations within walking distance.

This will be my go-to stay for this area.

This hotel is small but very clean and nice. The propreitor is very nice and friendly. Convenient location, easy freeway access, close to Junior College where there is track and field facility. I'm very impressed with the hotel for the value, and definitely would stay at this hotel again when I'm in the area.

This newly remodeled motel is close to many restaurants and very convenient to activities at Santa Rosa Junior College. We were in Santa Rosa for Summer Repertory Theatre and were able to walk easily to the venues for the plays on campus. The rooms were clean, the carpets new, the bed great, and breakfast offerings included coffee, tea, granola bars, fruit, and packaged pastries. Rooms have refrigerators and microwaves. Wifi is free and fast. The management is friendly and helpful. We live north of Santa Rosa and travel there often for shopping, medical appointments, and entertainment. We'll be staying at the North Bay Inn again in the future!

My requirements for a motel room are clean, quiet, safe and reasonably priced. This motel perfectly met all my needs. I look forward to staying there on subsequent visits to Santa Rosa.
True the breakfast is nothing to write home about, but the other reviews seem way off base. The only negative comment I can make is there was no microwave or refrigerator in the room.

Passable for a night or two. Not as well maintained as some other older motels I've stayed in. Overall, not bad for the price given the area. As some have mentioned, the "breakfast" hardly deserves the name.

This motel is moderately priced, clean, convenienty located in walking distance to a major supermarket, good take out restaurants, coffee shops, the junior college, city bus lines, a major pharmacy. The rooms are clean though not elegant. The advertised breakfast is a cellophane packaged sugary sweel roll to be eaten in your room. However, if you are a person of color this may not be the place to stay. My 23 year old adopted son who stayed there is African American. He was woken by a telephone call before check out time asking if he were leaving that day. Then he was again woken by a maid who said she could not return later to clean the room. Is this prejudice? Why find out if there are other alternatives.

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.
