I have been to many hotels for business and this one is nothing special their modern room design is pretty nifty but that's about it nothing special. Its a great place if you just need to sleep and go the area isn't to horrible yet again nothing special.

Typical Motel 6 room in cleanliness and decor......a bit smaller than usual for a double, and the price was higher than usual. May have been because of the location-but $96 (tax incl) is higher than what I'm used to paying for them. The room was clean, the property lovely, nice area. The front desk crew was busy but very accommodating...

Has everything you would expect of a higher priced hotel, clean, flat screen tv, fridge, little table and chair. All freshly remodeled. Even had my morning coffee waiting at reception.... I liked this motel 6 even better than grants pass motel 6 which I loved. Right off freeway with refreshing a/c, just what I needed!

I needed a safe and inexpensive place to stay before I dropped my daughter off at camp. Santa Rosa was closer but much pricier, so we stayed here. The room was new, clean and colorful albeit in a motel setting. No amenities to speak of, but none were expected.

It appears that the Motel 6 franchises, at least those I have been in this year, have all been remodeled. The rooms are Spartan, but clean with comfortable beds. This one in Petaluma is no exception. It is quiet with plenty of parking, a little pricey compared to others, but perhaps it's the location in wine country. This room did...

I have been traveling for 2 weeks with 2 kids staying at different places, but I have never stayed at such a cheap place like this one. Dirty, no towels, no shampoo, not working wi-fi, tiny rooms. Rude and not caring front desk. Still I would not write this review IF... They gave me room with handicap shower. My 10...

My wife and I, along with our grandkids stayed here for one night while passing through town. What can I say, it was a Motel 6. The WiFi in the room was non existent, and they charge an additional $2.99 per night to use it. The clerk offered a free night usage, but since I couldn't even detect the network,...

Comfortable no frills hotel in good area for walking dog, parking for SUV with trailer. Restaurant across street had great food and patio so you could take pet. No breakfast but Starbucks, donut shop, and a few other places to eat all within walking distance. I would stay with my golden retriever again. Felt safe as a girl walking my...
