We are grateful they agreed to let us check out late. We'd spent three weeks helping our granddaughter care for 3 kids plus the brand new baby while hubby pulled night shifts. We just wanted to sleep in until we woke up naturally. No alarms. No bouncing balls. No sweet six year great granddaughter peeking in the doorway saying, "Greats!...

Hotel was pretty good. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. The outside of the hotel is worn and needs remodeling. The breakfast was average as it was only a continental breakfast.

Petaluma is a fun area to stay and this motel is in a great location for downtown, shopping,wine country and even close to a casino. Restaurants in the area are exceptional. Try Lombardi's for a great sandwich.

I stayed at the BW Petaluma on February 21, 2016. The room was a little small but perfectly adequate. Clean, cozy and nicely appointed. The free wifi, microwave and refrigerator are great. The location was good too - easy to find and to get around town and nearby places. The Palms Grill at the property was a surprisingly good restaurant....

Hotel refused to accept a debit card upon check out. Unheard of! That's the same as cash!! If you enjoy waking up and sharing the shower with ants in the morning, this is definitely the hotel for you! Eventually, staff came in and used their killer ant stuff...some of them still survived to enjoy the thrill of showering with humans...

I recall a complaint of ants in the bathroom once in the four stays at our property and it was immediately resolved. In regards to debit cards, we accept just as any other credit card (except when the card comes back as "invalid"). The front desk agent did exactly what she was supposed to in checking out a customer with...

This hotel was clean, the room was huge and I love that a restaurant was right next door! Super easy to check in and out. Good parking, great location. The beds were very comfortable! The bathroom was big as well! Employees are very polite and accommodating. Clean inside and out!

Very quiet and the beds were very comfy. For it's price range it was good. Internet was slow. Restaurant next door was Very Good. Shower area was small and no place to put things in the shower - i.e. shampoo, soaps etc.

Nice Best Western, very nice staff both at check in and check out. Pet friendly rooms were nice and clean. Loved the restraunt and bar right next door. Free breakfast was minimal but it also was very clean.

The price was pretty good for the area I think but next time I am in the area I will look for another place. It was fine but not great. The breakfast is very small with not a lot of choice and the attendant was texting on her phone a lot. The bathroom was really small and only ok. Oh...

Nice Hotel and centrally located. Family recommended it and we were not disappointed! Love Petaluma and will certainly stay there again. Room was very nice and so was the bed and bedding. We were a little late for breakfast so was not as stocked as it likely was.
