“nice room, friendly staff”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

The bad: the hotel is is a busy location. On the corner of 2 main streets and it doesn't look like much from the outside. I didn't care for was the very old single pane windows that allowed for all the outside noises. and the view out the small bathroom window to the back was of someones dirty back yard. Location is bad if you want a secluded, quiet area.
The good: friendly staff, nice room. nice, clean newer bedding, and furniture. The bathroom was very clean! it had all the amenities. it had an awesome breakfast place with a lot to choose from. Hotel is across from a shopping village. Safeway, froyo, food places, bank....etc. So location is good if you want to be close to everything. It was too cold to go swimming for me although I did see some children having fun :)
Good stay here overall

We were on the 1st floor in #114 near the main office, it was roomy and the bed was comfortable. Lots of towels in the bathroom, and we received extra coffee and creamer from the nice front desk gal.
Downside was a motorcycle group (gang?) revved in making all kinds of noise and commotion with their bikes and music. They were staying at the same hotel. The noise wasn't through the night, but was still annoying.
The free continental breakfast was missing eggs (or any protein at all) but was otherwise tasty. The young gal refilling the food/beverage containers was never off her cell phone. Both coffee dispensers were empty, no butter for the waffles, etc. Clearly she needs more supervision to stay off her cell and do her job.
Overall this hotel was adequate.

We stayed here for three nights well visiting San Fran and the Napa/Sonoma Valley areas. Hotel is very good, only thing that keeps me from giving it an excellent rating is it is a bit dated and could use a bit more maintenance in the rooms but nothing that would prevent me from staying there again or recommending it to others - beds, towels and room very clean. Staff were friendly and very helpful with information about the area. Right off the 101 so easy to get around the area. Take the time to visit downtown Petaluma well there - you can spend a day just wandering around there. Great free breakfast as well.

Room Tip: If you take a room above the entrance nice little balconies to enjoy.

Great value for price we paid. Was affordable compared to others in same area but not lacking in amenities. Had a great stay. Ate breakfast there every morning. Room was very clean. Beds were okay. Very quiet in our room even when hotel was booked solid, and there were a lot of nights it was sold out. No complaints.

This is a clean, no frills hotel, just off Hwy 101. The staff is friendly and competent. The bed was comfortable. The room had free WiFi, and a flat screen TV. The breakfast choices were typical for a B.W., but don't show up late.

We booked this last minute as a one-night stop on our way up through Marin/Sonoma and were pleasantly surprised at the cleanliness, very comfortable beds with terrific bedding and towels for the type of hotel. It's a highway-side, motel-style property so of course expect more noise and outside doors but is very comfortable and clean and in a great location for a road stop. Also close to a Safeway and Starbucks - that said, it's not a neighborhood I'd necessarily walk around in at night alone. this is a car stop! (I didn't see/hear any of the 'clientele' mentioned in other reviews - stayed on a Friday night.)

The included breakfast had yogurts, oatmeal packets, fruit, coffee - a decent continental. The pool area was quite nice.

I'd stay here again if I needed a place to stay on my way through Marin or Sonoma counties.

Room Tip: 2nd floor around 250 are in the middle - farthest away from 101 and McDowell. Also avoids more foot...

A small, but nice, hotel easily accessible from Hwy 101. Very close to a lovely walking, birding trail, the fairgrounds and downtown. The exterior is dated, the rooms are remodeled & lovely. Staff is very nice.
