“Vacation trip”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Great Place with exellent service. Fantastic room and beds. Free parking. Esay to drive to and from to wine valleys and the coastline. Whale spotting. Not far to the Golden gate bridge and the majestic tree forest. The race track almost on the other side of the road.

Beautiful grounds, nice room and great bed (we had a deluxe king room). It is a hilly property so be prepared to walk up ramps and/or stairs. The hotel is located near a freeway on ramp (1 block) and is within easy driving distance of shopping, dining and scenic attractions. The Wildfox restaurant had very good food, great service and a nice atmosphere (cozy booths and low lighting). I wouldn't recommend it for kids due to price and "California Cuisine" which is delicious but not for picky eaters. It is adjacent to the hotel but what that actually means is it sits across a large sunken parking lot. There are wheelchair ramps but I wouldn't envy the person doing the pushing. It is only a short drive to San Rafael and other locations with a great assortment of choices for food. We ate at P F Changs our second night.

Restaurant on premises was also very good, Requested a microwave which they placed in our room. Would go back there for sure and recommend it to others.

We found this hotel to be very family friendly . Rooms were clean and as stated in the pictures as was the rest of the hotel. Easy access from the freeway. Pool area with courtyard seating and ping pong was wonderful. The fire was lit every night! The staff, especially the front desk was so nice and helpful. Breakfast buffet was average. No hot food (eggs bacon, sausage or potato) and after 3 days of the same thing over and over it got old. Nice balcony off of the room and very quiet most of the time. Would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the area

I've been traveling ("on the road") now for over 25 years in America and around the world. I've never found a better place to stay or with more special people than the Novato Oaks Inn. I've been a regular guest here for 17 years! They are incomparable, the best. Business or pleasure they are exceptional at everything.

Very pleasant and attractive hotel- close to the freeway but quiet and restful. I seem to gravitate to Best Western. Breakfast is actually good. Staff helpful and quick. Some rooms are under the oak trees.

This hotel was had very friendly, helpful front desk staff - hooked me up with a great cab driver. The outdoor space was lovely and we enjoyed spending our evening there. Would have liked a few more items in their free breakfast but overall we would definitely stay again if we were in the area.
