Hotel was Ok - just average. I expected more from a Best Western Plus. Beds were average - no pillow top. Breakfast was good with multiple choices. Bakery goods were excellent. Location was very good. We went to Sonoma & Napa valley and this hotel was great for our starting points.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago via mobile

We had the double queen room with a balcony. The balcony was a good size and had basic furniture for use. We loved that the room had a small fridge to keep all our cold foods in after a day of travel in the ice chest. The room was clean and comfortable. Due to the amazing beautiful warm weather we...

We drive to SF every week for medical appts.. We love to stay at this hotel. The rooms are great, the breakfast is very good and the parking is free!! Anyone that has stayed in SF knows what I'm talking about. 20-30 minute commute to SF (depending on traffic) which is totally worth it with the total savings!

The design of the balcony allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the scenery without anyone else seeing us. It was a great addition to a very clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was the best we have eaten in a hotel. Great selection of healthy and just yummy. Every item was fresh and proper temp. Variety was outstanding. Egg, ham,...

Room was large King bed, desk, dresser, chair and ottoman. A little different bathroom layout but it actually worked well for 2 people. I thought it was a little over priced but isn't anything near San Francisco. The bed was comfortable but nearing an update. It's always nice to have a little breakfast available. It was better than average for...
