Recent guest reviews

Enjoyed sleeping in the comfortable bed. room was clean.only wish it was bigger.good if your spending your time out and about and just sleep and shower in the room.

The mattresses were very saggy when sleeping 2 in a bed both end up in middle. Very small rooms with no extras, bring your own shampoo!!!!!! Needed room close to race track, but when we race again wont be staying here.

Booked a room here for a trip to visit the Lagunitas Brewing Company. Hotel was walking distance to the brewery and it was clean. Nothing fancy but a good place to crash for the night if you don't want to drive anywhere after the brewery. Downtown is a short drive away if you want to see the shops, etc.

It was nice. The restaurant at the casino had good food. It was a great place to stay and crash after enjoying the casino.

Only real complaint was that the freeway noise was reeeeeally noticeable even with fans on. Complimentary coffee was good:)

It's a perfectly serviceable cheap hotel. They were able to check us in at 1am.

If your looking for a cheap nights stay and you only plan for one night and out early the next morning. . . well this is just barely OK. The building is of the old 60's/70's style where all rooms face the parking lot and there is no elevator to the second floor. The room was for the most part clean but run down needing new tile etc. The breakfast although was there, not much. Waffles were frozen and toaster barely worked, the milk for the cereal was the same and the coffee was . . . well coffee. If you don't expect much, this is the place. The front desk help was fine and cordule.

This met my need for a place to sleep in Petaluma. The bed was comfortable and the room clean, with no extras. The staff were courteous. Continental breakfast was bare bones, but the coffee was decent.

We were looking for a last minute hotel in the Petaluma over the July 4th weekend, and found this hotel. Everything else in the (already very expensive area) was booked, but we got a pretty good deal for the price. The hotel was clean, and quiet, and the staff friendly. It was a couple of miles from downtown, but convenient to get to.

This was an easy accessible to the 101 and fairly cheap nights stay. Definitely nothing to write home about and not the cleanest in the world but better than paying a ton.

Doors facing outside, 30 year old decor, parking lot filled with contractor trucks, and the kicker...as I was opening my room door another guest with a tall boy in his hand told me I was hot and if I drank I could join him for drink in his room....creepy!!!!!!!!!

Located to near major freeway . . . traffic noise.

Comfortable and clean, staff were courtous as usual.

I had a nonsmoking room, but it smelled strongly of smoke and there were burn marks in the carpet that appeared to be from cigarettes. The freeway noise was very loud. The bed was not very comfortable and had lumpy foam pillows. There was a refrigerator and microwave in the room. The staff were friendly.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel due to its convenient location to downtown Petaluma AND its one of the few that doesn't require a two night minimum during harvest time in wine country. The gentlemen at the front desk at checkin was rather aggressive and confrontational when I asked why he needed my drivers license and credit card. I had already shown him my prepaid confirmation and drivers license. Bottom line being they swipe your card and scan your drivers license "just in case?" I understand protecting the hotels interests however, be upfront about it and please consider revising the policy; not real happy having my license scanned into their computer, identity theft being what it is. Try next door instead. Cheers

I read reviews on this hotel and had second thoughs but it was the only one available in my price range. The other reviewers who said you could hear freeway noise, I was on the second floor in the back and heard nothing at all. The pillows & towels were well used but the room was very clean. No alarm clock or coffee maker but you do get a refrigerator. Overall you get what you pay for.

Room was a bit cramped with 2 beds, but was very clean, fridge and pool were very clean and front desk was very friendly. Will def. book from this chain again!

if highway noise bothers you, you might want to skip it. Otherwise fine.

The room was comfortable with all the basic amenities. It was quiet and despite usually having difficulty sleeping in hotel beds I had a great sleep. Decor was basic and television had a few extra channels including HBO. The staff were friendly. The only complaint was that the room hadn't been cleaned from the previous guest (bed unmade, rubbish not collected) even though I arrived at 4pm. However I notified the manager and it was ready by the time I got back later that evening. The motel is about 30 minutes from Sonoma and right off highway 101. I would definitely stay there again by myself or with my wife, but the room would be too small for a family. There is a Subway, an Applebees, a Starbucks, an Ihop and a 7-11 within walking distance from the motel as well as a couple of local Asian restaurants.

We were visiting for a night for our son's "college moving in weekend". We got there late after a long drive. The hotel was a bit hard to find because the main entrance is not visible from the street. Staff is friendly. Too close to the freeway unless you like going to sleep with the constant humming of the cars flying by. Our none-smoking room "reeked" of cigarettes smell. The beds were clean enough, the mattresses terrible (I woke up feeling stiff and achy). There was a moldy old bread loaf behind the refrigerator. For the price, I did expect a bit more: There was no coffee and in the bathroom, they only provide towels, soap and shampoo, no body lotion or conditioner). Breakfast is nothing to speak of. For the price I expected a bit more even though I did look for only the basic lodging for one night.
