It was nice and quiet in our room and we enjoyed the balcony. The hotel breakfast was even more surprising with a...

We stay here whenever we visit our daughter , who lives in Petaluma. Although it is 15 minutes away it is by far the best choice of lodging in the area. The rooms are very nice and comfortable. They offer a lot of decent options in their self serve breakfast every morning, which is included. There is a great restaurant...

A very nice hotel just North of San Francisco - but very close to Sausalido, Muir Woods and also just of the main 101 Highway The hotel looked nice and the staff were very friendly The rooms were bigger than you would get in San Francisco, and clean The attached restaurant was a pleasant change and well worth a visit

Despite having to change our reservation just a day before, the front desk staff was extremely accommodating and was able to secure another reservation for us...

One of the cleanest rooms I've stayed in in our travels. Spotless. Decent breakfast with a large variety of things to chose from including eggs, sausage, waffles,...
