“Best Value for the Money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Newly renovated rooms are clean top to bottom. Large spacious sink and mirror area for getting ready. Bath and shower are nice too with plenty of hot water. Our queen bed was extremely comfortable with four fluffy pillows and fresh clean linens. The room was quiet too, we didn't hear a peep out of our neighboring rooms. Check in staff was pleasant, the pool looked clean, parking was no problem at all (on a sold out night), and there is a Peet's Coffee right across the street.

I will definitely stay here again.

Due to the marvelous reviews and excellent rates, we booked two nights at the Petaluma Inn to stay near our son's home for Easter. The room was as requested, quiet, spacious, and very clean. BUT, there was no wi-fi. The first night we were told the router had to be reset, but the clerk was too busy to do it. We were invited to the lobby to use the desktop, but post midnight, it wasn't convenient because we were already in bed. The next morning dawned with no wifi. That night I tried again and yes, no wi-fi. Monday morning I tried quite early as I had to check in for an early flight - no wifi. For such an otherwise lovely hotel, I don't believe I can stay there again. Some of us have to work on the road and choose carefully in order to complete that work. Best Western Petaluma you disappointed us and should have discounted our rooms because they were NOT as advertised.

Room Tip: We were upstairs near McDowell. It's much quieter than the freeway side.

The staff was very friendly and the rooms were very clean and up to date. The price beats any of the hotels/motels in the area. Very pleased. If I'm ever in the area, I will defintely stay here again.

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.
