The Best Western in Novato is conveniently located off the 101, nestled in the California hills. Ask for a room like 5206 facing the hills and high enough up to look out over the scenery. Birds and sometimes deer can be spotted outside your window. Rooms are clean and spacious with decent lighting, convenient desk, small bureau, small closet, and...

After a long drive stayed here. Service and accommodations were very good. Price was affordable. Front desk staff over and above helpful. Beds could have been a bit firmer but were adequate. Would recommend this to others traveling north or south on highway 101.

It's competitive out there for hoteliers, as they try to wow us with their upgraded wi-fi capabilities, or lobby decor or things that don't matter as much to me as a traveler on the road and in a hotel every week. THIS hotel had the friendliest staff, a welcoming lobby, a warm attitude, a GREAT restaurant next door, and they...

The only quality accommodations in Novato, IMHO. The Deluxe rooms are freshly furnished, very comfortable and convenient. The staff could not have been more accommodating and friendly. I believe they truly care about their patrons overall satisfaction. The value is very evident taking into consideration the room cost and the amenities. With room service available, and the resaurant next door,...
