I did not like the harassment of the woman behind the counter by a group of four drunk men who were checking in. They were racist, she was Latina. It was an ugly scene. I feel as though having a security guard in the lobby would help people stay on better behavior.
Comfortable bed was,the only thing good about the place
The motel was clean except there was a foul odor in the hallway where we stayed. Staff was friendly and helpful. The bed was horribly hard so we didn't get much sleep. The floor would have been more comfortable. Awful smell in the hallway was troublesome because it also came into the room.
Very noisy. We had to unplug the fridge to get any sleep. Lots of traffic noise. Lots of plumbing noise.
The location was pretty convenient for exploring the region due to it being right next to the freeway. We were bothered by the noise whatsoever. The staff were harassing and embarassing each other upon check in which was pretty uncomfortable. Our room smelled of muggy wet dog and was pretty dirty. The bed was the most uncomfortable I've ever experienced in a hotel. The cleaning ladies came around (very loudly) to begin housekeeping at 7:30 am, way too early. Overall the experience was one of prefer not to have again considering the price.
Clean n ez to get to from the highway Price
Pool was nice Hairs on the bed sheets, vinyl flooring through out the room looked clean but was filthy. my daughter came in from the pool and dripped water so she cleaned it up with her white towel and it was completely black when she was done. so grossed out. when I complained they gave me a $15 coupon for my next stay. I think NOT.
Location; a very minimal room No shampoo, conditioner, or facial tissue. Adequate for 2 nights while visiting Point Reyes.
Stained in the tub
Poop on the wall, multiple different hairs in shower, we stripped a bed because perfume was dropped on the comforter from previous customer and we told the front desk. Housekeeping put the same sheets and comforter on. Had to strip bed and bring everything to the front desk.
This should only be utilized as a last resort.
Nothing Bed and pillows are super thin Couldn't park in front of our room because the pool was there The shower just sprays on the floor and soaks the entire thing resulting in us tracking water into the room
Nice staff, clean and updated room, convenient to highway. Natural preserve across street.
Everything was conviently located. Everything clean. Staff was very friendly especially lady at the front desk with short black hair! Wish I would have payed attention to her name but she was very friendly. Hot tub was great.
The hotel is beautiful! The beds are comfortable and who doesn't love breakfast included.
this place delivers little extra in every way… extra clean love the ping-pong table
Very nice hotel for the money.
/The room was large and neat with an outdoor deck. Bathroom was warm. Must have radiant heat. Nice decor. Desk clerks very helpful. Spots on the rug. No refrigerator or microwave. Did have use of the one in the breakfast area. All fabric items were wrinkled. Could not figure out the Keurig coffee machine. Alarm clock didn't work.
Great place to stay. Breakfast was wonderful and filling. The location was very convenient. I would stay here again.
Nice old hotel. You can't beat the location and amenities for the price! Being downtown it was quite loud early.
The hotel was great! It was super cute, charming, and unique. The beds were comfortable, and the rooms that don't have an in-room bathroom are very close to the hall bathroom (some rooms do have in-rooms bathrooms.) The hotel rooms were clean, and the staff was more than accommodating, helpful, and friendly! My husband and I had lots of fun staying here! The parking situation isn't perfect. However, we came in late and had difficulty finding a spot, the front desk employee went and moved her car so we could have a spot! There was a little noise, being downtown and on a weekend, but definitely not enough to be bothersome for us.
I liked that your hotel was in a safe place. Further, everything was neat and clean. The mattress felt like a board and didn't enjoy having to ask for a hair dryer and then return it to the office. Most hotels offer that service.
The hotel is in an old building. The building feels like the 1920's or 30's, so it's neat to see that. It rates highly for charm. It has a pleasant atmosphere and decor. It's in a great location right down town. The staff seemed friendly during my interactions. The hotel is going through some major renovations. When I stepped off the elevator I could see all the construction happening in the rooms. It felt like I just stepped in to a horror movie set! Not much can be done about that till the renovations are complete. The walls are thin and there is no AC. the hotel does provide a fan which proved adequate. The bathroom could have used a thorough cleaning.
Walking distance to downtown Petaluma businesses. Honest about what it can/cannot offer. Clean room. Could get warm. Standard room is a bit small. Hallway noise could be bothersome if other guests are loud. Need "do not disturb" signs!
Staff was nice. Location was close to food and drink. Really in the thick of downtown Petaluma. Yes, usually this hotel is one of the cheapest in the area next to to Motel 6, but after staying at both places, I choose Motel 6. The best thing it had going for It was that the hotel was located within walking distance to everything you came to Petaluma for. What also comes with that is every bit of noise from traffic and neighbors. No A/C (they give you a fan), communal bathrooms, and tiny rooms that were lit up from the streetlights Just go to the Motel 6 if you're looking to save. Plus they're remodeling. It won't be too long before this hotel is charging $250+ for rooms. We spent $110 and we're wishing we hadn't.
Loved the original feel of 1923! Original hardwood floors, the narrow stairs, the old elevator door that had to be opened by hand, original bathtub and medicine cabinet! Beds were adequate and comfortable. Plush towels and bedding. Doors came with real keys. Windows opened to the outside and there were screens you could shut over them. Well kept, freshly painted. One has to be appreciative of historical buildings and not expect all the added comforts of modern times such as large rooms or lots of counter space. The window was single pane and did not keep out the street noise. There is no AC in case you visit in summer. The original sink in the bathroom had visible signs of wear - authentic you could say. One must find street parking, but it isn't too difficult if you go up the side streets. All that being said, my husband and I would still recommend it for the 1923 experience.
I thought they did virtually all of the little things well: The check-in and check-out were courteous and efficient. There were enough towels, and they were of good quality. The shower worked well, had plenty of hot water and was high enough. The bathroom amenities (soaps, body wash, shampoo, conditioner and mouthwash) were very nice. The iron and ironing board worked well. The windows, curtains and HVAC system worked well enough. Despite being close to the freeway, the noise level was acceptable. The bed was large and the mattress was new and comfortable. It's both minor and personalized, but I found all four of the bed pillows strikingly uncomfortable.
Charming and unusual. Very comfortable bed. Close to town - walking distance to great restaurants and fun things to do. Friendly staff. Not handicapped accessible at all, and you have to carry your luggage up a curvy staircase. The check-in process needs work. It's a phone at the locked front door, but only a recording answered it... we couldn't get in until someone inside noticed we were there. Parking lot is kind of crammed, hard to navigate.
Read the other reviews and you'll get our input - superb, fun, friendly...all of the above and we can't wait to get back!
Clean, walkable to town, friendly staff, Mattress and bedding was okay.
Fab beds! Fab covers! Good pillow choices! Nice decor! Very clean! 8 rooms! Just wish we stayed over on a Thursday night as the very small village has the few places for food open Thursday-Sunday evenings & mornings! Wiuld have been nice for breakfast to have had some bread & a toaster & some butter & jam! And a small table to sit at also! And yes warm & quiet!! Memorable! Would return if in the area. Drove 15 min. To Nicks in nearby Marshsll on Tomales Bay for a very fine dinner, even a musician entertaining! Also might add, good tv reception! No problems. Drove from Bodega Bay easy to find en route to Pt. Reyes, Monterey. Will tell friends at my home in Hawai'i Kai about this hotel! Most everything was fine. See above comment for details!
This hidden gem is perfection--truly like something out of 'Victoria' magazine. If you need a break from the big city (San Francisco is a short 1/2 hour away), this is the place. Close to fun shops and great eateries in a classic CA neighborhood.
I liked the area and the privacy. This was unique and not like any standard hotel room. Also, I was able to have my small dog stay with us. There was some difficulty for us since my mother uses a walker, and she needed to negotiate one or two steps.
Privacy, and ambiance. No.
This charming place was really easy to find and I can't wait to stay there next time I go to the San Francisco area!
Access to garden Very basic. No A/C, no fans, cant open window. Not planning to stay there again, not recommend.
Great central location within easy walking distance to shops and resturants.Wonderful outdoor space for entertaining guests.Very friendly and helpful owner. No central heating or air conditioning.
We stayed in a recently renovated room. The walls are thin and you hear your neighbors... especially when they're having a party that lasts until 4AM.
The rooms were dirty and the entire hotel room was old. The bathroom was very small, outdated and dirty. We are never staying here again.
Staff was good. Place was acceptably quiet. Continental breakfast was a horror show in terms of food quality.
The room was very clean Our AC would make noise from time to time.
Location The experience would have been better if I slept in my car. Not only did I not get an opportunity to sleep after 3 calls to the front desk to shut down the college party next door, but the next morning the front desk person said he could do nothing and insinuated that the reason I did not sleep was my own fault. The room was equal to a motel 6 as was the service. Seriously, if you think about staying here, stay in your car and save a couple hundred bucks! Worst hotel/motel/camping experience ever!!
The room was as was expected and a great value for the cost. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Our room faced the garden. I liked that we had 2 entry ways, one lead to the parking area and one lead to the garden. We loved the swings from the center tree. My son had a fantastic time swinging and meeting other children. It was a bit cool to test out the pool but we are looking forward to another visit to try it out. Some people have said that it could use an update but I honestly appreciated the character. The swanky restaurant was fantastic and had live jazz music. The location was excellent and met our travel needs while playing in the area. The breakfast was simple but enough to start your day.
Clean room Not enough free channels on tv.
The grounds are nice. Lots of trees, flowering plants, some hammocks and a fountain behind the restaurant/pool. It's close to the interstate, which can be convenient but some rooms might experience more traffic noise than I did (it wasn't bad for me at all). I liked the look of the room and didn't have a problem with noise though I've read that some people have. Depends on your neighbor, I suppose. The bathroom is small but I didn't mind. There's no bathtub, if you're interested in that. Robes were provided in the back entrance closet area. I didn't use the internet but the TV worked fine. Ate at the restaurant one night and they let me take my dessert back to the room on a covered plate with silverware and a cloth napkin, then said I could just leave it in the room rather than take it back to the restaurant later. My meal was tasty and the restaurant's environment is relaxed and attractive with a pleasant staff. I was there in the off-season so it wasn't flooded with people -- that might make a difference, according to some of the other reviews, but I can't say personally. I enjoyed the stay and would probably stay there again if I were in the area.
Room was clean, complete, well-organized and spacious. Colors were cheerful, but not obtrusive. Service was good. Clean bedding was delivered instantly at 8 o'clock in the evening when an open bottle of water tipped over on the bed. No problem. Restful space. Breakfast was simple, but adequate and fresh especially for self serve buffet. Hard boiled eggs were tender and done perfectly, a rare achievement. Open space with mature plants and trees out the big window. Quite nice. Gluten-free options for breakfast, please.
Beautiful spot, overall atmosphere was really pretty. Within an hour from San Francisco and close to the 101. There were quite a few bugs in the room when we came in. A spider and then a few mosquitoes, kind of a turn off.
Walking path. Backed car to rear door made easiest unloading and loading ever. Normally, you would say a stones throw from the freeway, but so close, I think you can throw the stone over the freeway. Heavy drapes muted sound somewhat. Bathroom tiny. Price was way too much for what it is. Should be half.
very good for inexpensive motel. parking close, room was clean, refrig in room along w/ coffee maker. bed was fine. no complaints really. asked for a quiet room and got one. didn't care for noise in hallway while people were getting stuff to rooms, but it ended early enough. very quiet after 10:00pm
had all the conveniences of home ie: microwave small refridgerator coffee pot good mattress Too noisy at night with people slamming doors and loud talking outside of rooms
It was close to the freeway and 1/2 way to our destination. The price was moderate. Bathroom tile grout was completely moldy, afraid to go barefoot. Beds were hard and lumpy and the carpet had stains and bad repairs where pieces had been replaced. Their breakfast consists of coffee, cold cereal or a 1/2 of muffin. The parking spaces are extremely narrow, even for a Camry, plus several were taken up by buses, so we had to park on the street outside the inn.
Pleasant staff and good size room. Very quiet. The beds were amazingly hard. I've never felt such a hard bed, even while traveling in developing countries. Room had a strong body lotion smell inside the didn't seem to go away.
Help was pleasant, Maria in the breakfast room was very helpful and friendly and efficient. Our room was surprisingly quiet given the location adjacent to a busy highway off-ramp. We had a construction crew in at the time and other than a little back-up beeping as they left in the morning, we really didn't notice any noise issues. Traffic in the area can be troublesome, we were there during the week, not weekend, and had no trouble getting to or from San Francisco when we avoided rush hours. Also very convenient to roads to the coast, the redwoods and wineries and vineyards. An interesting array of dining options locally, as well. Exiting the driveway can be awkward due to the closeness of a busy intersection but it's easy to drive a bit and u-turn so not all that big a problem.
there is a little bit of traffic noise because of proximity to freeway.
