Second stay here at the Metro and it gets better every time! Stayed in Anna's Nest and it felt like home. What I love about this place is it's laid back vibe, retro French furniture, sumptuous linens and bedding, and all around eclectic feel. And let's not forget the Streamline retro campers you can stay in - complete with lawn...

We go to Petaluma for business and this is our second time we have stayed at this hotel. It is definitely a unique french style experience. The rooms are clean, comfortable and the WiFI works. There is parking included in the room. The staff is friendly. It is walking distance to downtown Petaluma for some restaurants, brew pubs, and stores....

..of our entire 2 week northern Cal vacation. Only spent one night but the Metro was so quirky and amazingly decorated, it had us wishing for more. The rooms are a bit small, but are very well appointed. The bathrooms are huge, almost as big as the room. Morning breakfast was a real treat, crepes and real self- brewed coffee....

I called 3 weeks in advanced after having an unexpected cancellation of another hotel in wine country. The owner was so helpful and he was more than happy to accommodate our bachelorette party of 5 into their 4 person room! The room was BEAUTIFUL. The hotel was so wonderfully decorated and clean. I would LOVE to go here again, the...

The Metro is a unique, quaint, funky and whimsical little place. We are the big brand hotel type of travelers, older, so this was a leap for us. We found the place clean, cozy and comfy. The air conditioner was efficient and one of the quietest we have encountered. The person who checked us in showed us around, explained how...

This small hotel is located within walking distance to downtown Petaluma. We used to live in Petaluma and moved away 6 years ago, and were aware of this hotel. We decided to give it a chance. We stayed in a room upstairs it was adequate, bed was comfortable, the bathroom had an old fashion sink and claw foot tub, and...

Very cute, quirky place to stay. All of the decor and furnishings fit perfectly with the french chic vibe of the hotel. We stayed in Amelie's Nest, which is separate from the hotel and about a mile away in a quiet, residential neighborhood. The value for the price is excellent, considering the private nature of the apartment. This is the...

We stayed in one of the hotel's Airstream trailers. It was the cutest place we have ever stayed. To us, the front desk service was not friendly or inviting, but we would stay here again for the location, the great decor in the main part of the hotel, and the choices of accommodation types. The complimentary morning crepes were delicious,...

My boyfriend and I stayed at the Metro Hotel for the Memorial Day weekend (May 2016). We had high hopes that this would be the perfect place for a romantic weekend, but the hotel didn't live up to our expectations. First off, we were waiting outside for the owners to show up for the check-in at 2:30pm. It was a...

This a hotel out of the 60's. It is absolutely brilliant. They only had the suite left. What a hardship. Fabulous rooms but fell in love with the three Airstream caravans which look fabulous. A great breakfast in the classic French mode. Don't expect anything fried! We WILL be back. By the way the Peruvian restaurant next door is brilliant...
