Was a small motel that offered everything we needed.....especially peace and quiet! It was very clean and fresh. Bed was very comfortable and plenty of pillows. Small continental breakfast was enough to tide you over for a bigger lunch. Close to everything we wanted to do - San Fran, Santa Rosa and the like. If we go out that way...

The room was clean although it was questionable if the bed sheets were changed. One of the days our bed wasn't even made. Nothing fancy but we weren't expecting much. A lot better priced than hotels in San Francisco

My daughter & I stayed here for 1 night over Labor Day weekend...staff was very accommodating & friendly, but we had to ask for a second set of towels. Room was relatively clean, but no literature in the room to tell how to run anything or even a TV guide, or information on local sites. Only 1 tiny garbage can...

We made our reservations in May, 2016. We didn't have a lot of choices in this area because rooms at the better motels/hotels were already booked for these dates. I read the reviews and chose this place because it sounded like the best available at the time. After reading the most current reviews, I have to agree with most of...

The manager was very nice and accommodating and we appreciated it. Our AC didn't work and she gave us another room to sleep in and not have to move our belongings! Thank you! If we return to the area, we would definitely stay again.

After the stay I had a problem with the invoices. The woman who answered the phone and said she was a manger is the rudest person I have spoken to in a long time. I would like to speak to someone above her. I can’t believe she is the only manager I can speak with. She hung up on me...

I booked a Standard King room (as seen on reservations.com) a month prior to our trip. When we arrived we were given a room with a Queen bed. Went to the office and the young woman switched us to a room with two doubles. All was well except the AC only blew warm air. As we left for dinner around...

Warm friendly atmosphere, easy access accommodations and very nice people. Clean room, king size comfortable bed and morning continental breakfast goodies. It's by the freeway, but you really don't notice.

I stayed here while I was visiting friends. I was amazed how clean and modern my room was. The staff is friendly. So what if you don't get a full breakfast buffet. There are places you can go to eat located nearby. With this motel, you can't beat the clean room and the price. I will stay there again on...

This is a two star hotel; yes, but it should be a three. My wife and I always read reviews on Trip Advisor before we choose a hotel. We had misgivings about the North Bay Inn because some reviews said the bed was lumpy and the freeway noise is loud. But the price was right for our budget $123 including...
