My wife and I retired in late October and returned to the Metro Hotel in Petaluma to celebrate our retirements. We had such great time staying at the Metro and visiting wine country last November that we wanted to relive the past. Our first stay at the Metro was in one of the rooms. This year we stayed in the Honeymoon Air Stream and loved it!! From the pond and pink flamingos outside the air stream to the king size bed (very comfortable), separate shower and bathroom, kitchenette, and living area inside, we had a wonderful and relaxing time. The Metro is beautifully decorated in a French theme. On special occasions (Halloween, Christmas), the staff goes all out to decorate. Every morning crepes are prepared in the cafe with pour over coffee, tea, or juice. The Metro is only short walk from downtown Petaluma and its nice restaurants and shops. Luna's is a very nice restaurant only two blocks from the Metro. The Peruvian restaurant next to the Metro is also a great choice for authentic Peruvian cuisine. If you require a hearty breakfast to start your day eat at Saxx's next to Pinky's Pizza. The Metro is also convenient to Sonoma and Napa Valley destinations such as Point Reyes National Seashore Park, Jenner, Bodega Bay, Lake Sonoma, Quarryhill Botanical Gardens, etc. Our stays at the Metro have given us wonderful memories that will last our lifetime. We will be returning again soon only this time we want to come back in May or June.

Room Tip: All rooms are nice and private. Air Stream trailers offer a combination of luxury and comfort.

The room and bed were super comfortable. This hotel is cute and full of interesting artwork. It was decorated for halloween while we were there and they did a great job. Watch out for those stairs! Great hotel!

This is not just a good value for a quick getaway, it's very convenient for a walk around town and as a base for exploration with a charming flare of French décor to make it fun and special. The breakfast arrangements are very simple with a homey and almost elegant hipness. A great place for its category. We're going back.

I almost hesitate writing a review because I want to keep this gem of a hotel a secret. This is our second time staying at the Metro. We love it; it's a funky little place that has a charm and warmth that you'll never find in a Marriott or Hilton. Staying at the Metro is like visiting a good friend's home. The location is fantastic--just a short drive to all of the wineries. Petaluma also has a wide variety of great restaurants, too. Stay in the hotel, an Airstream trailer or the little cottage on the property.

Stay here but try to keep it a secret.

Room Tip: We stayed in Anna's Nest; a small cottage on the property.

A year ago I stayed in one of the rooms in the small building and loved it. Last night my husband and I stayed in one of the bambi airstreams. What a terrific experience. Incredibly comfortable bed. Lovely coffee in the airstream and crepes in morning in the main building. We felt like we were in Europe in a top of the line camper!
