No real problem with the place. It's clean but the rooms are very small and the amenities are very limited. You get a towel or two and a bar of soap, no shampoo or any extras. The pool seems nice but we never had a chance to use it. If you're looking for a clean cheap place to stay and... More

Pro: plenty of free parking, parking for trailers, friendly staff, free cable tv. Bath tub and shower. Short drive to shopping center (Raley's, K Mart, Trader Joe's and several restaurants) Cons: overpriced, older out dated small rooms. 2 adults one queen $250.00 for two nights. Mattress was fair. No coffee maker (coffee in lobby, no closet, no iron...NO FREE WIFI... More

I usually travel towing a 36' race car trailer, so adequate parking is always a plus. The Motel 6 in Petaluma has half a dozen long, trailer adequate parking areas in the rear with easy access. As with most of the Motel 6 properties I have visited lately, the rooms have all been remodeled, are clean and the people at... More

Other reviewers are absolutely right when they say "nothing fancy" about this Motel 6 property. We landed at SFO - went to comedy night at Mill Valley's Throck and needed a place to crash at 11pm before daylight heading North on 101 again. This Motel 6 fit the bill for an even hundy+ change. I cannot imagine choosing to stay... More

Nothing fancy about this Motel Six, but I knew that checking in. A good place to sleep and shower, but nothing else. No fridge or microwave. Room was clean and front desk was very helpful! The best price I could find around Petaluma. Would stay here again!

I have never stayed at a Motel 6 before, so I was unprepared for the lack of amenities: no hangers, no drawers, no clock, no Kleenex, no shampoo, no coffee maker, no paper or pen, no soap dish or bar in the bath tub. On the positive side, the property was well-maintained (except for the steps to the second floor),... More

I was worried about staying here but I would stay again. The location was convenient and for the most part, it was very quiet. The first night of my stay, I could hear people talking and kids playing right outside my room but this stopped at around 10 pm and no problem on the following night. The hotel did provide... More

For $60+ this place seems clean, pleasant enough, safe, and well managed. The WiFi signal is horrible. I didn't get a connection once, despite many, many tries. Manager says it's better on the 2nd floor. The check-in guy was very competent and nice, though the check-in was a bit understaffed.

We only spent one night in this motel. It started badly when the manager insisted that everyone staying must have photo ID. Even the photocopy of my passport wasn't acceptable. The room was clean but lacked any way to make coffee. We had a good nights sleep. The stairs up to the room were in poor condition and very slippery... More
