We were visiting friends in Sonoma, this was the most affordable for that weekend even though it is almost 30 minutes away. We got a room with 2 queen beds, the room size was just fine, it has been renovated almost completely the tub in the room we stayed in needs to be replaced.The bathroom where the toilet and shower...

For the price, this was terrible, but everything in this area is way overpriced. The rooms we were offered ranged from pretty smelly to "OH HELL NO" atrociously disgusting. We were also very close to the lobby and the WiFi was so bad as to be non-existant. They actually charge people for this crap (though the desk clerk gave us...

Stayed here for a quick one night stop over. The room was clean, beds were comfortable..it's your typical basic motel..nothing fancy and the guy at the front desk was friendly. The only compliant I have is the wifi. I couldn't get a signal from my room.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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),...

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...
