Stayed in rm. 253. The first night there was a dripping sound coming from the vent. That kept us up a good part of the night. I went to the front desk to report it. They told me someone would look into it later that day. I asked to speak to the manager and was told they do not get...

We found this motel because it had adequate truck parking and we could have our dogs. Checked in room was about 83.00 with tax. They put us on the second floor so we could have a fridge, walked into an oven. We work outdoors the temperature this day was around 85 degrees. I immediately tried to turn on the AC...

Service at check in was good. Price was great for Bay area motels around $60.00. Typical basic Motel 6- small room, no extras. Clean and modern looking room. That's fine I don't like too spend all my time in motel room, but they were skimpey on a towel & wash clothes. Bring or ask for extra blanket & pillow may...

It is motel on Petaluma suburb. The room was clean, beds were comfortable. Nearby are some big shops, but not for food. The laundry service is fine. The suburb is quiet. The staff is very friendly. The room equipment was on lower point and the wifi is not really free of charge (just for one).

Cons- Rooms small, no drawers, few hangers, not enough pillows or towels, paid for a queen with a microwave and were given a full with no microwave, housekeeping no show, we were there for 4 nights and were told this is considered an extended say so housekeeping only comes once every three days, "oops sorry, they should have come on...

Very modern decorating in the room. Best motel 6 I've ever stayed at. Also, the laundry for the guests was very appreciated. Didn't have to leave the hotel. It came in handy. Location was just off the highway and was perfect for us

Having had an awful experience at a Motel 6 once during our trip I was dreading this stay but it was not as bad as expected. (It had been booked by friends so unable to change). It is a no smoking complex and was cleaner than the previous place, but still needed some attention. The walls are thin so hope...

I chose to stay in Petaluma because it was centrally located to my plans to go to Point Reyes National Seashore and check out some wineries. Check in was quick, hotel lacked amenities though. No free wifi or continental breakfast was included. The room was updated to seem contemporary but it did not have a mini fridge or even a...

We needed a hotel room for one night due to family overflow and found Motel 6 as the least expensive available ($73). The place appears to be run well, our room was modern, clean, and the A/C worked very well. Coffee in the lobby in the AM was OK< but they need to add real cream or 1/2 and 1/2...
