Very Good
Sleep Quality
"Clean, quiet, safe"
RonLeiken, 03 Avril 2024

First time to Marin County in about 10 years. I used to stay at another hotel in San Rafael but I saw many complaints in their reviews, so I tried here. Glad I did, the staff were great, especially the lady who checked us in at 1 am! We stayed for three nights, and each one was quiet, staff were great, and never saw anything "off" in the parking lot.

"A convenient, affordable, and pet-friendly place for a short visit to Novato."
MonteverdeSeattle, 30 Mars 2024

The best aspects of the facility are its pet policy and its proximity to downtown Novato and highway 101. The units are in the midst of a renovation, but our room was comfortable and quiet. The inn backs up to a large pasture with Angus cows and their calves, and there were several wild turkey Toms displaying and calling in the mornings while we were there. The complementary breakfast is very limited, no doubt due to the fact that the breakfast room was undergoing renovation. The staff were all pleasant and helpful, and the pet fee was reasonable. All in all this was a decent and affordable place for our stay.

"Always my top choice"
th85hl87, 29 Mars 2024

I have returned to stay at this hotel a couple times whenever we travel around the area. This time we stayed for 4 nights – 3rd floor room 4301. The location of the room was not very far from the elevator & the ice machine. This worked for me with my mobility issues. The hotel was not full during this time so we did not hear any noises. When I checked in, the acknowledgement of my member status from the front desk lady made me felt special and appreciated. On my first night, I was cold and not used to the thin sheets used by the hotel. Next day, I texted the front desk. Kim and Sarah were very helpful - trying to get me a thick blanket and a chair to sit in the shower as I am a handicap. With the thick blanket, I was able to keep myself warm with better sleep on the following nights. Breakfast choices were limited and repeated. It became boring for stays that are longer than one night. The coffee and waffle were the ones that we enjoyed most. Good quality compared to other hotels. The attendant cleared and kept the tables cleaned as soon as the guests left. Food was refilled and kept full all the times. My husband told me that he discovered there was a machine that make cappuccino without sugar at the front desk. He was so happy. This hotel met my needs (i.e. good base location, consistent quality services, clean and modern facilities...). Overall, I recommend this hotel and this is marked as one of our top choices.

"Great property in convenient spot"
Richard L, 03 Mars 2024

The Best Western Plus has been consistently good for us over many years. The hotel is clean, well maintained, rooms are a good size, friendly staff and is a very convenient spot. We have been going here for many years and will continue.

"Great stay"
leiyans2024, 17 Février 2024

Location was great. We checked in and we were offered freshly baked cookies and water bottles. They have a booknook in the lobby with various titles to borrow, hard for a bookworm to resist. Also they have a cappuccino machine and breakfast selections. Facility and our room was clean. Service was excellent.

"Good location and good staff"
trf511, 08 Février 2024

Property location is excellent. Hotel staff are effecient and nice to be around. The Marin/Bay area is always a pricey place to get a motel, but that is to be expected. The BW Novato OAks is reasonably priced.

"Wonderful Experience"
wendywB5512WV, 05 Février 2024

We had a wonderful experience at the BW Novato Oaks Inn. The front desk staff came to open the doors for us and greeted us with warm chocolate chip cookies and bottled water. The rooms were clean and comfortable as expected, but it is the staff at Novato Oaks Inn that always make our stay exceptional. From the breakfast staff to the maid service, everyone is happy and friendly and determined to do their part to make everyone's stay pleasant. You can tell the staff lakes pride in their work and are dedicated to customer service. It is a joy staying at this hotel. I highly recommend it.

"The Best Location in Novato"
Ilene M, 29 Janvier 2024

I stay at this property several times a year and the property is super clean, safe and the staff are genuinely friendly and welcoming. The room is large, comfortable and comes with a fridge, microwave, seating area and desk area. I come for a group event and the conference room is perfect for the size of our group and the staff are always available if we need anything.

"Clean and comfortable"
370terri, 02 Janvier 2024

I've stayed at this Novato location twice and each time has been pleasant without issues. Parking is free and ample, breakfast is good with many options, the staff are very nice and helpful and it is a convenient location.

"Pleasant Holiday stay"
Alfonso M, 28 Décembre 2023

Staff was great and promptly responded when we requested additional towels. The room was spotless The breakfast had a great variety and the gentlemen working the breakfast made sure the options for food were plentiful.

Minootravel, 13 Septembre 2023

Nicely appointed and modern rooms. Extensive breakfast options. Free parking and Internet. Mini fridge and microwave in room. Reserve a hillside room so you won't hear freeway noise. Friendly staff.

"Great place to stay!"
christinatate2023, 11 Septembre 2023

Hotel was clean and staff exceptionally helpful and friendly! Breakfast had lots of food options and lots of room to sit and watch the morning news. Pool and hot tub area were large with an area to BBQ and hang out! Great restaurant next to hotel...and they deliver! The hotel staff made other recommendations for restaurants that deliver as well. Overall a great place to stay!

"I haven't stayed here in a few years, I was pleasantly surprised on how updated it was."
txkate, 06 Septembre 2023

Our room was on the hillside, so we had a view of a doe and her fawn. The room was large and updated. The bathroom was updated too and very clean. I liked that it had a refrigerator with a small freezer, I travel with a frozen bottle to keep my drinks cold. The dining area overlooked the pool which also featured a ping pong table. I wish I went there last night, it looked so inviting. Nice breakfast too. I will definitely stay here again.

"Nice place in need of aa few tweaks"
Original_Kona_Dave, 15 Août 2023

I really liked the location, but it was in need of a little attention to detail. The rooms were great and comfortable. The breakfast was a but light and not up to what I have experienced at other plus properties. I really liked the pool facility, but the hot tub was dirty. I liked that there was Perry's restaurant in the parking lot. It was good and affordable.

"Best stay at the Best Western"
samanthadw133, 15 Août 2023

My husband and I had the best stay for our vacation at this hotel. VERY clean both hotel lobby and hotel, the bed in our hotel room was absolutely comfortable. The bathroom was very clean, the amenities were easy to use and accessible. The price was great for our weekend stay and the customer service was amazing.

"Great hotel"
nikkihirst23, 13 Août 2023

Everything was great, the staff is amazing, rooms are updated and clean. It's right of the freeway so you're close to restaurants and shopping. The front desk was extremely helpful in suggesting places to eat.

"Pleasantly surprised!"
jenniferheld, 29 Juillet 2023

Exceptionally clean room, new/fresh bedding, helpful professional staff, excellent amenities, delicious breakfast bar withe wide variety of FRESH food, convenient access to highway and restaurants. This is my new go-to hotel when I am in the area.

"Money well spent"
Dbrauer78, 19 Juillet 2023

Stayed here for a couple nights during a two-week road trip. Hotel is very well kept. Staff were friendly. Overall a great stay! Best bang for your buck that I've seen in a very long time, will definitely stay again when back in the area.

"San Francisco room; Fresno prices"
Bria K, 18 Juillet 2023

Stay here if you're in the Bay Area; especially if you're head to the coast! We came here to escape the inland heatwave. 105* in Sacramento, but 64* at Pt. Reyes/Stinson Beach. This hotel is located close to: San Francisco, the beach and Napa/Sonoma wine country. Need I say more? Excellent amenities at the hotel (pool, exercise room, etc), but we spent our time hiking in the near by State and Federal Parks. John Muir Woods (reservation req.) Stinson Beach China Camp State Park Steep Ravine State Park Mt. Tamalpais State Park Be sure to check out their sat and alone Restaurant Perry's. Excellent food, prices and service. Stay here and you'll thank me later!

"Great staff, good rooms, mediocre breakfast"
AnOregonian, 10 Juillet 2023

I give this hotel 4 stars because it was overall a good value. The staff accommodated our early check-in request and were very helpful and friendly. We got a nice room at a very reasonable price at a time when there was high-demand due to July 4th week/weekend (which meant they had multiple wedding parties staying there, plus the big July 4th event was happening nearby at the Marin Civic Center). I would have considered giving this hotel 5 stars, but the breakfast situation did not work for us. There was enough seating, but the serving area is rather small and crammed into a corner which made it tough to get food when it gets busy. Also, the only egg options were milk-based scrambled egg products, which I can't eat due to milk allergies. So we ate elsewhere all but one morning of our stay. On the bright side, the staff were terrific and the room was very comfortable and laid out nicely, and the property is well maintained.

"Home away from home"
sstoots54, 04 Juillet 2023

Staff made you feel so welcome always asking how they could help and trying to see which party we were a part of. When someone would point out there was something missing at the front desk, the clerk would provide it as soon as possible. Staff working non stop on cleaning and washing windows.

"Friendly Staff"
Barn5556, 06 Juin 2023

Unplanned stay over, staff made it enjoyable and easy. The room was nice and comfortable with entertaining view of road, close restaurant with great food, easy highway access and near by shopping center.

"Beware: Every Thursday 5:45am - 6:15am Big Truck Delivery. Very Noisy."
Liam B, 09 Février 2023

Wednesday night is very noisey. I was woken by the noise of a very large Birite food delivery truck and associated engine revving, beeping, slamming and banging from the truck from 5:45am to 6:18am. It seemed to bring the hotel to life with people then banging over head and in the corridor. I was told by the front desk that this is a weekly delivery and there was nothing they could do. I tried to put headphones and ambient music but had to be up at 7am so last precious 75 mins of my night's sleep was ruined. My room faced the freeway. The noise is noticeable (35 -45 db as I lie in b having abandoned night's sleep (added later 60-70 db outside)). The balcony door is substandard, curtains are thin. An upgrade could help as but I feel the balcony design with smaller outside openings than size of balcony door opening mean that the noise is amplified if facing source of noise. Best solution would be additional layer of glazing at front of balcony. Anyway, I think its a basic human right to get a proper nights sleep and its table stakes for any hotel - the most basic expectation and they are arranging in advance to regularly fail. I'm sure 5:45 deliver suits someone but it is not the end customer. Noise.

"Pay a little more, get more"
175nd, 04 Février 2023

Prices in and around Novato were steep by my midwestern standards. But after reading reviews and sizing up the other places my group and I realized we had to upgrade just to get a decent hotel that wasn't a potential dive. I am very pleased at our choice. Very nice and helpful staff. Genuinely interested in you and how your stay is going. Overall this was a comfortable and convenient hotel with good amenities. Free continental breakfast with many choices that fill you up. Pool and hot tub in back. Also a gas fire pit with surrounding lounge chairs, and grills, which I assume guests can use. Also fun was a ping-pong table. Room was basic clean, comfortable, and functional. Noise was not an issue, either from the street, the adjoining rooms, or public spaces. Lobby has a nice coffee machine dispensing straight black to lattes, even cappuccinos, all free. Two internet stations and a small workout room with ellipticals on main level. Access to highway is close. Adjacent restaurant, Perry's, is a nice bar and grill within walking distance. Speaking of walking if you're in shape there is a trail up a steep hill behind the hotel. It offers some great views to the bay and surrounding areas. I have no complaints. I would definitely stay here again.

"Not bad except for the mattress."
paulkW1013FW, 03 Janvier 2023

This was a well managed hotel that had good service and was in a convenient area. The mattress was well worn, with a significant valley on one side that made being comfortable pretty difficult. They really should replace their mattresses before they get to that state.

"Great family stay over Christmas"
Go24421027757, 27 Décembre 2022

Really nice, updated rooms and very accommodating for our family (2 kids ages 6 and 8). We stayed Christmas night and the front desk was very helpful with getting is done utensils we had forgotten for our kids' snacks.

"Great short stay"
Travernumberone, 27 Décembre 2022

We stayed for one night. The room was pleasant, clean and quiet. The room also had a keurig, mini fridge and microwave. Toiletries were minimal. The breakfast included pancakes, eggs, sausage, cereal, bread items, coffee and juice. The Nespresso machine was out of order. The carpet in the outside corridors seemed odd, but other than that it was fine. The check in and check out was great and the staff was very friendly. Highly recomend for a short stay.

"Will stay again"
Kevin M, 26 Décembre 2022

Great rooms and beds. Stayed with wife and 2 toddlers. Worked out great. Will stay again next time in the area. Themed for Christmas. Breakfast good including pancake maker that I've never seen anywhere else

Q1650GZgl, 25 Novembre 2022

After driving from Santa Rosa to Oakland and taking a flight to Burbank then home to Santa Clarita to pick up our car, we drove to San Diego and checked into the Hilton. We were so happy to collapse into the softest beds after that one day driving and flight marathon ! Our dog was most welcome and everyone rested as the dead desire ! The room was beautiful, the bathroom was sparkling clean and everything was so welcome after such a long trip! The parking valet, Jesus, was most helpful and a wonderful fellow at the late hour that we arrived. He was about the most courteous person that we encountered on the entire trip. Hilton is fortunate to have Jesus as the first staff person that weary travelers encounter at the Hilton. To be sure we will return to enjoy the rest of the hotel's amenities!

"Great spot to stay!"
sargan, 19 Novembre 2022

We were extremely pleased with these accommodations! Welcoming staff, spotless, quiet room, great shower and comfortable bed. Very quiet . Thank you to Kim and Marissa who found the purse i left behind! I appreciate your help and honesty.

"Excellent Property in Marin"
Gennady Y, 14 Novembre 2022

This is probably by far is the best Best Western I stayed in. Clean, convenient, and all equipment worked without issues. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I wish there were few more choices for breakfast, but, over all it was good!

"Best Hotel Staff!"
katjh22, 10 Novembre 2022

The hotel and our room was very welcoming and clean. The breakfast was tasty and filling. The staff is outstanding and really made our stay wonderful with their kindness and professionalism. We were very grateful for the atmosphere of welcome, ease and friendliness created by all of the staff and the high level of quick and very professional customer service. Would definitely stay here again!

"Adventure awaits"
cassandragrau, 02 Novembre 2022

I have recently become a traveler driving across the country. I have become fond of Best Western as a home away from home. I enjoyed my rest and relaxation in Novato Oaks Inn. The staff was welcoming and attentive. The fresh baked cookies in the evening were a delightful surprise. The room was clean as I would expect nothing less. Check them out!

"Great staff - great property!"
NCBaseball, 30 Octobre 2022

I knew I found a great hotel when I checked in. The front desk person was over the top and very friendly. She went out of her way to make me feel welcome! When I mentioned going to see the Golden Gate Bridge, she gave me directions on how to find the best views and best route to see the bridge!

"Good location, fabulous staff."
ANGELA B, 28 Octobre 2022

Perfect spot to staff for a local family visit. The room was large and my private patio was a great spot to enjoy my in-room coffee. The staff was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable about the area for dining, etc ideas.

"Very enjoyable stay"
sarah4nil, 02 Octobre 2022

We stayed here for 1 night after visiting Muir Woods. Location is conveniently off highway 101 and property is well maintained and safe. We enjoyed the nice pool & hot tub, and the ping pong table was a fun bonus! The room is spacious and very nicely decorated, exactly as shown on their website. The Perry's Novato restaurant just next door from the hotel served very good American cuisine, is super convenient and price was reasonable. The hotel served a complimentary breakfast with hot items like eggs, sausage and bacon, and they also had a no-touch pancake maker which was very entertaining to watch. There were many choices in cereal, yogurt, fruit, breads and pastries as well. We had a very pleasant experience at this hotel and would definitely stay here again in future.

"Nice Stay"
cliff z, 26 Septembre 2022

As a former California Motel owner, i appreciate a well maintained and run establishment. All the staff that we encountered were very friendly, helpful and professional. Room was clean, good amenities, and breakfast was good. Great location for our purpose to be in Novato. The internet was weak in our unit. I saw no need to report it due to our one night stay. We would definitely stay here again.

"great location"
cb552016, 21 Septembre 2022

Nice and quiet hotel with a nice chain restaurant next door, plenty of free parking, other restaurant's and shops nearby if you wanted anything, easy access to both the wine regions and San Fransisco.

"Excellent Value"
516LynnL, 20 Septembre 2022

This property is lovely, clean and well kept. Staff is always friendly and professional. this was a return visit and I was as pleased with the service and the room as I was on the last visit. Great value for your money in an area with overpriced accommodations

"Definitely will return to this property!"
Shani C, 04 Septembre 2022

Stayed here for 3/days and the staff weee super friendly and were smiling and just a positive vibe. The rooms were nice, super clean and large. AC worked great! The shower was super cool and large. The breakfast choices are just right and everything was so clean. Had the view of the freeway yet, didn't even hear when sliding door was closed. Definitely will stay in the future and will advice friends and family to definitely stay here.

"comfortable and pleasant"
shrilh, 28 Août 2022

Not walkable or close to downtown Novato, but otherwise convenient to highways 101 and 37 and points north and south. Nice private pool area in back. Reasonable free hot and cold breakfast items. The hotel was quite busy and we could hear voices from neighboring rooms.

"Clean friendly & convenient"
Lori H, 24 Août 2022

One of nicest BW hotels - very clean & comfortable rooms, good free hot breakfast; warm cookies in pm; very friendly and helpful staff; nice adjacent restaurant and nearby things to too; nice pool with firepit at night;

"Highly recommend"
lboggeri, 16 Août 2022

Highly recommend Novato Oaks Inn. Great location for wine country, Marin, and San Francisco. Professional, friendly staff. Nice restaurant and bar located on property plus a big pool. Plenty of on site private parking.

"Great Hotel and Staff"
JA-S88888122, 04 Août 2022

The folks at this Best Western Plus are always on point. I've stayed there many times when I've had to leave the city. Clean, comfortable and responsive staff. Very good value for the money and highly recommend for a good nights sleep.

"More like a resort than a motel"
Susan C, 05 Juillet 2022

Very clean, friendly and accommodating hotel. The pool and hot tub were quite nice with lots of different seating for conversation or sunning. Breakfast was better than average for a free breakfast. Every single staff member was friendly and helpful. Great location right off 101. Definitely recommend if you need a place to stay in Marin. There's even a nice restaurant in the same parking lot.

"Overnight stop while traveling"
lhartzell2022, 01 Juillet 2022

We stayed at this hotel in our way to the beach from Yosemite-National-Park during our California vacation. Everything was great. Clean room, nice pool and hot tub. They pool and hot tub closed at 9pm which was disappointing. We didn't have time to use them. The staff were friendly and accommodating.

"Great Choice for Novato"
MwalimuT, 25 Juin 2022

We stayed here for two nights and really enjoyed our experience. The staff was polite and helpful, the room was very clean, breakfast was great and enjoyed eating it on the patio near the pool. I would highly recommend this place.

"Great hotel in Novato"
Soclwkr72, 17 Mai 2022

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. Friendly service, clean room and clean hotel. Very nice continental breakfast, beautiful pool with hot tub. Rooms were spacious, and beds were comfortable. Close enough to freeway to reach your desired destinations. Would definitely stay here again!

"Safe and friendly"
keirenf, 13 Mai 2022

My husband and I were driving north to Oregon from Washington State. We needed a room day of and while searching online we found this Hotel. Judy at the Front Desk was so nice an greeted us with bottles of water and hot chocolate chip cookies as a welcome. The rooms are nicely appointed and looked new exactly as pictured. The rooms are big and beds are very comfortable. Walter the bellman was so wonderful. He was kind to let us park closer to the front door as we had alot of items in our car and were warned not to leave anything in your car sadly in Novato. We felt safe in the hotel. Judy also recommended a wonderful restaurant called Crave down the street. Walter was kind enough to shuttle us down and picked us up. In the morning the breakfast was included, ample and starbucks Verona Coffee, yeah! If you need a hotel, safe and good sleep, it's a great and friendly hotel to stay in.

"Very nice"
2foxs, 13 Mai 2022

Very clean, staff was very friendly. Free parking and the fresh cookies were amazing! When entering and exiting the staff would would open the doors. Very simple gesture but so nice! Will stay here again when I'm in the area!

"A Gem in Marin"
Robbin T, 01 Mai 2022

Convenient to everything! Relaxing, quiet, and the hospitality is 5 stars. The staff are amazing, and the complimentary breakfasts are delicious. Clean rooms, lovely pool secluded, a very nice place to relax. I have been coming here for years. I live in the bay area, and this is my little get away spot, or I gift it to my family when they visit

"Best customer service"
AlexisGarcia412, 30 Avril 2022

These people went above and beyond for me. The hotel was clean and I was able to get a good nights rest. I was going to be leaving too early for breakfast and the lady at the front desk offered to have a breakfast bag ready for me in the morning. I definitely appreciated that.

"Very comfortable"
nimarquez05, 25 Avril 2022

We stayed one night to attend an event in Sonoma. Easy access to the freeway and close to stores. Staff was very friendly, the room was comfortable and I appreciated breakfast in the morning. The only downside was the only elevator was in the lobby which made it hard to take multiple items to my room on the second floor in one of the attached buildings.

"Lives up to the name “Best”"
mady85, 22 Avril 2022

This Best Western Location has been our home away from home for over 15 years. We've tried other hotels in the areas but this one is simply the best. It is priced well, the staff is very welcoming, location is ideal and there's no other place we'd rather today.

277kris, 22 Avril 2022

Great location and friendly staff. Very helpful on the phone, clean location, and good breakfast. The beds are also super comfortable. Pool and Jacuzzi were open late and worked out well for our schedule too.

"Awesome Hotel!!"
laphotog, 11 Avril 2022

This hotel is a hidden gem. The staff is extraordinary, the breakfast was terrific and the clean, comfortable rooms/beds were very much appreciated. The rooms also are extremely quiet. No sounds coming from the hallways or the roads/freeway as the hotel is kind of tucked into a hillside. Saw a small herd of deer waking just below our unit. I would book a 2nd stay here in a second.

"The BEST Best Western"
Catlyn C, 06 Avril 2022

My husband, myself and our guests stayed at this Best Western for my wedding. Our guests could not tell us enough times how impressed they were with this location. It was incredibly clean, modern and comfortable. All the staff we came in contact with over the two days were always incredibly friendly, cheerful and helpful. We especially loved the large "honeymoon suite". It was easy to check in and we felt incredibly safe at this location. I cannot recommend this place enough. It is the BEST Best Western I have ever stayed at and we will recommend it to our friends in the future!

"Second visit - a perfect 8"
th85hl87, 31 Mars 2022

We had a perfect 10 experience with the first visit (one night). We came back this time for three nights, however, the experience only earned a perfect 8. Our room # 4205 was on second floor, not too far from the elevator and the breakfast area & swimming pool. A perfect location. We were pleased with the cleanliness even though the elevator already showed sign of wear & tear & not very clean as other areas of the hotel. Sabra at the front desk (day time) was super nice and friendly. She always greeted me with a sweet smiling face. Breakfast buffet style was back. There were good varieties for everyone even thought the items were pretty much the same everyday. Two stars were taken away due to the followings. One night around 9:40pm, there was no hot water when I planned to take a bath. I talked to a lady at Front desk to report the issue. She rudely told me the problem was fixed and hot water would be back in another 40 minutes. She sounded angry as if I was the cause of the hot water issue. No apologies for the inconvenience. I stayed in the ADA room with bath tub. It was nicely equipped with plenty of grab bars and adjustable shower hose. However the room needed a chair to sit after taking the bath and put on clothing. I had to sit on the toilet seat which was very uncomfortable.

"I'd give this place 10 stars"
Kelly S, 21 Mars 2022

Ok so this place is a diamond gem, NICEST Best Westerns I have ever ever stayed and the front desk person Kathy is getting 10 thousand praises from us for her incredible service and hospitality. We had come in from Monterey and weren't sure where to stay. We booked another best western in the area only to find out it was actually a homeless shelter. We had a horrible dinner experience that took 2 hours due to crappy service and then barely missed a fatal car accident with a motorcycle. This place came up on the search with good reviews so we thought what the heck it's somewhere to stay From the moment of check on this place is NICE inside. The rooms are gorgeous, spacious and well decorated but the MOST important part was the service was out of this world. Kathy listened to our tales and checked us in, brought us cupcakes and cookies, told us to leave the luggage rack in the hall because she wanted us to rest and provided us a late check out of 130 because of how exhausted we were. This was by far the top 2 stays on our trip alongside our hotel in Napa. Thank you so much for our wonderful stay and your hospitality to us.

"Business Ready"
MamaSteph96, 21 Mars 2022

This hotel was perfect for the short business trip I had in the area. Breakfast was hot and fresh everyday. Hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel has everything you would need.

"Great trip. Awesome Hotel. Highly recommended!!"
Anne H, 18 Mars 2022

My husband and I recently stayed here on a trip to Point Reyes National Seashore. Room was clean, beds were comfortable and we had a great balcony. Front desk staff was friendly and informative. Breakfast staff did an awesome job every morning of our stay. Food was good. Location was very convenient just off the 101. Supermarket and restaurants were up just one exit. Would definitely stay again and recommend to fellow travelers. P.S. had previously booked a hotel in Petaluma but upon review, your hotel had much better reviews.

"Excellent Stay and Great Price"
pr_mirage, 18 Mars 2022

Everything during my stay was excellent and had no complaints. Friendly staff, well cleaned room, delicious breakfast buffet, reasonably priced, and an overall great experience. Recommend to all for a nice stay.

"Excellent customer service"
rides2fly, 14 Mars 2022

Staff listened and took care of our needs - late check in plus extra shampoo and coffee for this horse riding crew - with generosity. Highly recommend a stay here for the spotless rooms, luxurious bedding, top notch amenities, handy location and absolutely wonderful staff!

Nomad25959, 02 Mars 2022

over all the facility and staff were extremely awesome . if you stay over the weekend, you might want to go to breakfast a little later than first thing. The cook was overwhelmed and could not keep up with the demand which caused everything to out or cold.

"Best Hotel by far"
Sio L, 05 Février 2022

We've been going to San Fran for appointments for the past few years, not to fond of the city life with traffic so I wanted to get a hotel further away from the city. We found this hotel about 30 to 40 min away from San Fran, the drive is beautiful. You pass The Golden Gate Bridge and there's mountains and a beautiful scenery. We got lucky finding this hotel I will always stay here when coming to San Fran.

"Outstanding employee"
cheznous3, 04 Février 2022

Checking in is always a bit stressful for me because my standards are high and often there is something that doesn't meet them in either cleanliness or room placement per requests. ( Add to this being tired at the end of the day ), However today was an absolutely wonderful experience due to this hotel and especially to the incredibly kind and competent employee ( Judy) who was on duty and checked me in. I can not say enough complimentary comments about her - she was simply the best in every aspect. I want to recognize her for her outstanding customer service and thank her for making this check in pleasurable!

Carasmom, 23 Janvier 2022

I was quoted one price over the phone and charged another once I arrived which is a typical sales tactic that employees are trained to use. Found strands of black hair on my bed. Housekeeping barged in despite me calling out, indicating that the room was occupied. Not a good stay by any means.

"It's very pretty driving in withe all the plants and massive oaks in the background."
Diana S, 17 Janvier 2022

The team at Novato oaks best western plus are the very best! They are always so welcoming and pleasant to their guests. They make me feel comfortable and as though it's my home away from home. The front desk staff know their job well and they are great customer service.

"Great place to stay near San Francisco"
ninacorado, 22 Décembre 2021

We only stay for one night. Service was nice, receptionist was very friendly, room was neat and clean. This is the second time I stayed at this location, the area is not too bad, both times I enjoyed my stay here.

"A Fantastic Property"
robinsondallas, 23 Novembre 2021

This hotel is a gem on the way to Napa. We found the staff, the rooms and the overall experience exceptional. They take a great deal of pride in ensuring that the guests are taken care of. Next time we will enjoy that pool!

"First class"
kathyb20212021, 21 Novembre 2021

Not only are the towels soft and room very clean, it's quiet in this space, like a refuge in the sea of overstimulation. Staff are professional as well as helpful and friendly. Breakfast offerings are varied and are chosen with flavor and nutritional value.

"Very clean and the staff was friendly"
Christalg83, 16 Novembre 2021

I think this was a great hotel with a decent price. The room had a little bit of an odor but that seems normal for hotels. It was clean in the lobby area, the room itself, and the kitchen area where they do the continental breakfast. They have staff on hand at all times and were very polite. We booked this room last minute and I was very happy with it.

"So glad we stayed there."
Jake96816, 08 Novembre 2021

I feel this hotel is a hidden gem. We've never heard of it, but the online reviews were pretty good, so we took a chance because it was in a good location for our trip. We are so glad we did. The woman who checked us in was truly exceptional. Her friendliness and helpfulness was off the charts and set the tone for our entire vacation. The hotel has a nice “forest-side inn” type of exterior, but the lobby is clean and quite modern. The hotel room was great - spacious and clean, and came with a helpful mini-fridge. There was a small balcony with chairs that we didn't use, but it was nice to have. The pool looked nice as well, although it was too cold to swim. The breakfast was quite good, with a pretty good assortment of cereals, pastries, juice, breakfast meats, and a waffle maker. We would definitely stay here again!

"Hotel Needs to be Remodeled or Razed"
RockyRider100, 04 Octobre 2021

The room was clean, but too old to rate the $250 a night room rate charged. There was no service for the room because it was the weekend. We were given three bath towels. There was a veranda overlooking the freeway, the veranda furniture was office waiting room type furniture, two chairs attached to a small table in between.

"Excellent value!"
Laura N, 29 Septembre 2021

We travel for work and really appreciated how quiet this hotel is. Still close enough to the Bay Area without the high prices and crowds! Excellent hot breakfast, coffee, and sweet breads. Great value!

"Extreme Odor from Smoking"
C8092YDnancy, 06 Septembre 2021

This was a smoking room but it obviously never been aired out after the prior guest. The odor was so severe that we felt like we couldn't breathe safely and we were forced to leave without compensation. Management was not willing to compensate us at a later date either.

tyralamar, 29 Août 2021

Decided to stay here after a long work day in Marin County. I had never stayed at a Best Western Plus and was pleasantly surprised. The entire building had just been remodeled and was so nice. The staff was pleasant and accommodating- so friendly. Rooms were nicely appointed, pool and jacuzzi were well received after a long work day. Very nice patio outside where you could swim, soak, have dinner or a meal brought in. They had delivery service options and a full breakfast in the morning. I can't say enough about the experience and will definitely return. next time.

"The best of best western"
Diana S, 12 Août 2021

Novato oaks is my home away from home. I spend 1-2 nights per week there. They are always friendly and helpful. They are the best at customer service and satisfaction. If you need to stay in Marin, stay at Novato oaks best western plus.

"Highly recommend"
Jessica U, 09 Août 2021

We have stayed here twice now, and both stays exceeded expectations. Rooms are updated and beds comfortable. We enjoyed the quiet, private pool and hot tub. We also enjoyed the gas firepit after a cool swim at sunset.

"Great little gem!"
jennipike2021, 01 Août 2021

We stayed one night after a day at the beach. We will be back again for sure! Hotel was lovely- clean, comfy, friendly, and welcoming. Our three kids enjoyed the visit the most! Nice pool and spa and ping pong table. We enjoyed sitting near the pool that evening and having some delicious pizza that delivers for free to the hotel (Red Boy Pizza). Front desk gave us a list of local restaurants upon arrival, and provided plates/utensils too. There is free internet, awesome AC, and updated/clean rooms. Beds were comfy. Breakfast had lots of options- fresh waffles, sausage, eggs, toast, bagels, yogurt, fruit, oatmeal, cereal, donuts, and juice/milk/coffee. Everyone found something they enjoyed. With noon check out times, the kids swam again beforehand.

"Best best western"
sconebaker, 20 Juillet 2021

Excellent location. Room very clean. Non smoking facilities. Well decorated. Great staff and decent breakfast. Bed too high for a handicapped room.excellent grab bars in bathroom. Good freeway access.

"Naked man exposed himself on at least 2 occasions in the window over the pool and staff did nothing"
Zinnea, 18 Juillet 2021

This hotel is nice, but frankly, the management was more concerned about a "good customer" that kept exposing himself out a large window over the pool, than calling the police and reporting a crime. I was asked not to call the police and that they would handle the issue, but staff did nothing after I reported the man the first day and he was back at the window, naked - full frontal - the next day. Very disturbing.

"Not luxury but good enough"
laurawilsonx3, 29 Mai 2021

Good enough for a stop by for less than other nearby hotels but not high end finishes. Conveniently offers a coffee, a small empty frig. and microwave. The rooms are kinda dark but clean. We left early but breakfast was available such as hot coffee, fruit cold cereal oatmeal etc.Theres a pool and a gym and the staff are very friendly!

"Love this hotel"
samdelqties, 24 Mai 2021

This is our 2nd time staying at Best Western Plus in Novato. We love staying here, staff is super friendly, rooms are clean and comfortable, and the pool area is awesome! Even during Covid the breakfast did not disappoint.

"The "perfect 10"..."
th85hl8, 23 Mai 2021

This is a "perfect 10" hotel. I was impressed with everything, from the appearance of the lobby to the room 4304 that we stayed for 3 nights. The room had a good view of the mountain/hill side. However, it is a bit too close to the swimming pool. I can hear people chatting in the early morning at 7:30am or very late at night at 11pm. Choosing room 4306 is a better choice since you will have both the view and the quietness. It won't be too far from the elevator either. The lady who checked me in on 5/15 was super friendly. I did not get a chance to know her name. She was only there on that day and I had not seen her again during my 3 night stay. Kim in housekeeping provided excellent service. I requested extra towels and a box of tissue. Within 10 minutes, they were delivered. The trash that I put in front of the room during our stay was picked up promptly. I am very happy with these employees. The only suggestion I had was related to the modified breakfast which could have been better. For example: adding items that can be individually wrapped and warm up (i.e. croissants, muffins, yogurt, fruit cup...). I have seen other hotels putting the toaster along with the microwave for guests to use. I will come back for sure next time I am in the area. We love this hotel so much. No wonder it was ranked #1 in Trip Advisor. Very well deserved...

Tankoluv, 20 Mai 2021

Comfortable room just be sure to request hillside and main building. Bring your own food items until COVID restrictions are lifted unless you like highly processed packaged food for breakfast. Lots of restaurants & grocery stores nearby

"Really nice place with excellent service"
Buzziesguy, 18 Mai 2021

The hotel was really nice and and clean we had jointing rooms with my son and wife and it was fun we hit the pool and hot tub around 9pm with no problems. People there where nice and friendly. Would definitely go back

555danaee, 13 Mai 2021

Have stayed at this hotel many times and have had good experiences. But today, I checked in and while taking a nap, received a phone call (which awakened me) requesting me to move my car (which was parked perfectly legally) because they had a guest who had a corvette who needed the particular space (which was up in front of the hotel.) I had been so happy to find that space close because I have a huge load to carry out to my car in the early morning. I thought it was terribly rude. Annoyed, I moved the car - probably shouldn't have. Never heard from the manager they said would call to discuss.

"Great experience"
kevstaar, 27 Avril 2021

Stayed here for work. Days during thw week, and worked Saturday evening thru late Sunday morning. Room was comfortable, and more importantly quiet. Nice bed, clean bathroom/shower. Comfortable room. Will return next time I'm in the area.

"One of the best!"
RAJESUS, 10 Avril 2021

I have stayed in this hotel for about 20 nights over the last 6 months. It is very consistently one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, for cleanliness, friendliness, and the layout of the rooms.

Joyride54, 20 Mars 2021

I stayed here ten years ago because of location. I came again last month's for the same reason. Excellence has been impressively maintained in all aspects of service. I will stay here again when I'm traveling in this area.

"Amazing and relaxing experience"
kbarentsen, 11 Février 2021

Judy at the front desk was super nice. The exterior of the hotel is beautiful. During covid, they allow sign ups for the hot tub for 30 minute slots at a time so you get to be alone with your party. They were very covid safe and inviting and the room was beautiful. Mini fridge, microwave, and all. Thanks best western!

"Great Stay, Clean Place, Amazing Staff"
Christine M, 05 Janvier 2021

I was traveling for a medical appointment and needed a quick stay closer to the hospital. The staff went above and beyond to make me feel important and appreciated. Staff remembered small details about me and my reasons for travel and activated automatic doors when entering or exiting - either as general kindness or to minimize contact due to covid; regardless of the why, it was appreciated. Hotel was clean and beautiful and I felt safe traveling away from home in the middle of a pandemic.

"Enjoyable Stay for My Recovery"
carola73, 01 Janvier 2021

I'm giving this hotel 5 stars based on my recent stay and because I have nothing negative to say about the hotel or my experience there in general. I stayed here 6 nights to recover after having surgery at a nearby medical center. This hotel was was referred to me by the Doctor's office. The hotel staff were very accommodating. Not that I asked for much, but they did provide a lot of extra pillows and a wedge pillow to make my recovery more comfortable. The staff was also very friendly. My room was large, very clean and very comfortable. It had a very large screen TV, many channels, and my view was facing some hills so it was very quiet. In fact, my entire stay was quiet in general. I dont think the hotel was very busy while I was there but I still enjoyed the peace and quiet. Breakfast options were limited due to Covid but still enough to satisfy and coffee was quite good. I'd stay here again if I need to in the future and refer others especially if you are recovering from procedures done at nearby Novato medical centers and do not live in the area. The hotel normally has a shuttle that can drop you off at the medical center but is was not operating due to Covid however, catching an Uber was pretty easy from here so not a huge issue. Thanks for the pleasant stay!

"Miss Nadia"
visualaerialimages, 15 Décembre 2020

This was by far the best stay at a BW I have ever experienced, and I am very picky on where I stay. The young lady Miss Nadia made it seem effortless to check in and check out, always asked how my stay was going and if I needed anything. The rest of the Staff including Kathy was very professional and courteous to my needs.

"Best Western Navato Ca"
mobiledls333, 10 Décembre 2020

Top notch hotel!! 5 stars in every category!! Large Spacious rooms. I had a room with a balcony and it was great !! Very clean and modern. Beautiful pool and hot tub. Large parking lot that is safe and secure!! Awesome staff !!! Best hotel I've ever stayed at .

"Wonderful stay"
liberrygal, 09 Novembre 2020

I've stayed at a ton of Best Westerns (rewards member) and this is the BEST. The hotel is modern and the staff are all very nice and professional. Our room was clean and all the amenities worked perfectly. We stayed during the pandemic and there were wipes and hand sanitizer readily available throughout the hotel. Very clean place.

"Exceeded expectations. A well managed hotel. Good for access to parks. Not a lot else nearby."
AlexBurgess, 01 Octobre 2020

This is a very well managed hotel. All the staff we met were gracious, even under stress. They remained personable and helpful always. We were evacuated during a fire in Sonoma County, during the Covid-19 pandemic. A stressful time for everyone. They exceeded my expectations. We got the last room of the night, which they were able to reserve for us over the phone. When we got there, the phone was ringing off the hook - and even though they had no more rooms, I could tell they were listening to the customer's question, apologizing for being full, and recommending another close-by BW hotel. They helped us extend our stay, and even offered us late checkout. Because we were evacuating they allowed our pets, even though it is not normal policy. The room itself was good, recently upgraded, and clean. If you want to get to restaurants, shopping, and so on, you will need a car, Uber, or delivery There is plenty around the hotel - Target, Costco, coffee shops, and restaurants, but it is all at least a mile away. I went into this with a fairly low opinion of Best Western, but this experience has elevated them in my mind, and I would definitely consider another BW hotel elsewhere.

"Outstanding stay!"
Lynn H, 30 Septembre 2020

We were planning to be in the area for three nights. We had booked another property for our visit and had such a terrible experience that we checked out after the first night. We scrambled to find a hotel last minute that wouldn't break the bank. We were thrilled to find the Best Western Plus Novato Oaks. I called and Kim at the front desk was wonderful. She booked us into a beautiful room with a deck and we were able to check in a little early. The front desk team is attentive, friendly and helpful and took care of every request we had promptly and with a smile. Our room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The sink is located outside the bathroom - always a plus. The pool area is lovely with chaise lounges as well as tables, chairs and umbrellas. During COVID, pool visits are by reservation. There is an adjoining patio with a fire pit and a ping pong table. The breakfast is typical “COVID” style - packaged cereal, pastries, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, fruit, juice. The public spaces are tastefully decorated. We enjoyed our stay and would come back in a heartbeat. I highly recommend the Best Western Plus Novato Oaks.

"Lovely Appointed Hotel - Felt Covid Safe"
Z6405BCstephanief, 17 Septembre 2020

This hotel has been remodeled since we stayed there around 4 years ago. It is nicely decorated and attractive. I felt everything was clean and there was a good effort to reduce exposure to staff. Our room was comfortable. It was quiet. After a 15 hour drive, it was a pleasant respite. We had a 26 ft rental truck and found parking for it in the outer parking lot. We were able to check out via text. In normal times, this is a lovely hotel stay. In coronavirus times, it is a safe option and comfortable, convenient hotel

"Deserves Six Stars!"
Therese M, 25 Août 2020

I cannot say enough about this wonderful hotel. My husband and I spent six nights here b/c of an evacuation warning in West Marin. Our room was comfortable, the breakfast was adequate (considering COVID restrictions). The coffee in the breakfast area was some of the best hotel coffee we've had. The staff were all excellent, caring, and professional. My husband has health issues and he was treated with kindness when we arrived and when we left. We were able to have food delivered by several local restaurants and the Safeway is across the freeway. Sorry to see the Wild Fox restaurant closed; I loved it when I was here last year. Thank you, Novato Oaks' staff, for making our stay relaxing and enjoyable during this stressful time.

"Better best western"
tloen, 04 Mars 2020

This is one of the better best western hotels , The Wild Fox Resturaunt next door is good to have . The upgraded room surprised me how big and nice it was. I wish hotels had better pillows , one of the main differences in better hotels

"Great hotel BAD Elevator"
BrisbaneNewDad, 02 Mars 2020

Old hotel modernised. Comfortable. Can be long walk from car park. Only one elevator that is old and slow and needs a 100% modernization. Breakfast was good with ability to sit outside near pool. Location was good as stop heading south into SFO

"Always welcoming, recently renovated"
savudajo, 29 Février 2020

I stay at the Novato Oaks BW a few nights every month for work. The hotel has been recently renovated. Rooms are clean, comfortable and decorated nicely. Staff are all pleasant and welcoming. Great restaurant adjacent to property.

"Well above average Best Western, probably deserves a Premier rating"
philipf2014, 26 Février 2020

I've stayed at this hotel many times and have always been impressed with the staff and the facility. I sometimes have to leave at 5:00am and without fail they invite me to take of whatever breakfast has been set out early. Other hotels refuse to serve anything before the appointed hour. The pool and hot tub were out of service due to remodeling work but otherwise the stay was excellent.

"Estevans Wedding"
frodriguez1964, 23 Février 2020

Love this hotel. It was clean the staff were very courteous and polite. The breakfast was fresh and was constantly re filled. We loved the area. We had a shuttle to our event and back with no issues. We will return if ever in this area again

"Always a Favorite"
andreachisek, 19 Février 2020

Our staff looks forward to staying at the Best Western Novato Oaks. Small details like the cleanliness, the professionalism of the staff, the donuts at breakfast, and the wonderful food at the Wildfox Restaurant always make staying here a pleasure.

"Great hotel with great staff"
DayTrip06758856801, 16 Février 2020

This was a stay away from the San Francisco bay area as the prices there are too expensive. It is within a short drive to places like the Muir woods and beautiful Stinson beach. We were traveling to the city to see Hamilton.

Mark H, 08 Février 2020

Thin walls made for a noisy night. Clean room. Nice bed with clean linen. Bath tub has a drop down bench at far end that does not allow a person to lean back against the tub to relax. Hallway carpet dirty and needs replacement. I have stayed at other regular Best Westerns (not Best Western Plus) that were nicer and more quiet during the evening hours.

"BSP Overnighter"
Patricia W, 02 Février 2020

Meeting at the Country Club and stayed at the Novato Oaks Inn. In all ways a very good experience. Hotel room, very clean, warm and good mattresses. Dinner at the Restrauant was great; service and food. The next morning the vbreakfast, hotel help there if needed. Waffles fresh and warm. We were glad that we were booked at this hotel. Room

"Nice place!"
Rstrandberg, 27 Janvier 2020

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years and the experience has always been very nice. I intend on returning whenever I am staying in the area! The restaurant next door is pretty good too.

"Another Great Stay"
Sherpa573015, 21 Janvier 2020

As always, the BW Novato Oaks Inn exceeded all expectations. The wonderful staff, comfortable and well appointed rooms, combined with the great location, make staying here a great experience. All you need to do is ask and any unmet need is rapidly taken care of. Honestly, I would not stay anywhere else in the area.

M2392DMsusand, 06 Janvier 2020

My husband and I have been guests of the Novato Inn regularly over the last five years, having family in the area. We return knowing the rooms are spacious, clean, quiet and the staff friendly and helpful. On our most recent visit over Christmas my husband broke his leg (off premise) requiring hospitalization. As a ‘senior' couple, both of us knew I would be comfortable and feel safe on my own at the Inn. After release from the hospital we returned to an ADA room for four nights, so my husband could relax and recuperate as we prepared for a 500 mile ride home. The facility is comfortable and modern, but the staff is wonderful! I will forever be thankful for their smiles, encouragement, and help. Everything we requested, including ‘privacy please' was granted. Nadia, Guest Services Supervisor, was outstanding in every way. Michelle, Manager, jumped to our assistance when our truck battery needed replacement just as we were ready to get on the road. Within 45 minutes we had a new battery and were on our way. Five Stars all around. Thank you to all the staff. You have our gratitude forever.

"Mortel positives"
trf511, 27 Décembre 2019

Good location. good price. Very nice remod of property. Great staff. Certainly recommend this property. Best Western Novato Oak certainly is customer friendly. Restaurant on site is good with "new-wave" Marin menu, and cocktail area is comfy.

"A very pleasant experience"
tiggern3piglets, 21 Décembre 2019

I travel for medical appointments usually to the Santa Rosa area. This appointment was in the bay area, an area that we are not familiar with. A friend suggested staying in Navato instead of SF. I made the reservation over the phone. They were very helpful and kind. When we got to the hotel we were quite impressed with the look of it with the price quoted. Once inside we were not disappointed. It was very clean and nicely decorated. I like that they had a reading area that was stocked with books. Everyone of the staff that we came in contact with were very friendly and helpful. The location was quiet and clean. We will definitely stay here again when traveling

"Shining Example"
796melissa, 21 Décembre 2019

Nearly 99.9% of the time we stay at Best Westerns (BW) from NV to CA. The Novato Oaks Inn sets the standard all BW & other hotels ought to consider following. From the ease of check-in/out; to help getting to/from our room; room service; quality of the room/hotel/bathroom; yummy breakfast...All help us feel at home, safe, & cared for. My husband & I have trouble with mobility & have found all staff very attentive. We recommend this hotel highly! We typically stay on the 3rd floor & my husband fell in our room. Within moments the lobby called to make sure we were alright. They even sent staff to our room to make sure. We still are touched by the concern, regard...even dignity conveyed. We love this room on the 3rd floor because it's easily reached from the lobby elevator to the 3rd floor. Step off the elevator & there's our favorite room! Breakfast is also just one floor below. Handicap parking right by the lobby gives this BW the highest score possible!

"Good, heater didn't work during rainstorm"
simonsonvalerie, 07 Décembre 2019

The fire log was a great touch. heater would only stay on for a few seconds. We asked a gentleman who brought us more blankets we requested, he fiddled with it, and it turned off again after he left. I called him back, he just shrugged and said "you have a log, right?" A bit disappointing, maybe they could have offered us a different room with a more functional heater in December.

"Fantastic Staff & Very Clean"
westsolis, 07 Décembre 2019

Amazing staff that truly made us feel like they were just genuinely giving the best customer service, and didn't come off like they are being forced to be "nice". The entire hotel was very clean. The room was very clean and well decorated and very specious. I will definitely be staying here again on my over night trips to San Francisco.

"Great hotel"
nicholasmease, 11 Novembre 2019

I always enjoy staying at this hotel. Friendly staff, great location, good value. Rooms are very present in the way they are decorated. They have one of the better fitness centers when comparing them to other hotels.

"Nice, but pick the right room"
E8377HKlindac, 11 Novembre 2019

This hotel is decorated well and clean. They furnishings are tasteful and appear newly updated. Easy access off the highway. The breakfast area is relatively small with Best Western the basics with waffle makers, breads, whole fruit, eggs, cereals, coffee, etc. Enough to start your day and a great location if you plan to go to Muir Woods. I would have preferred a better setup - everything was a bit hard to get to with everything against the wall. Our room had a great layout (family suite) but unfortunately someone had been smoking either on the balcony or in the room at one point and the odor left me with a headache. Also, people walking above us caused the ceiling to squeak and woke us up. Laundry service was right across the hall and very noisy early AM. A lot of highway noise until around 11:00 PM. Our room was on the ground floor, highway side. Staff was nice and handled our complaints professionally.

"Where to stay"
whonu4, 19 Octobre 2019

BW in Novato is great.The place is newly remodeled. The location is close to everything. The perks are great. probably the best thing about Best Western plus in Novato is the amazing staff. They are professional and friendly and knowledgable making the overall stay incredible!

"Excellent value for money, professional staff."
Gerard W, 16 Octobre 2019

The Novato Inn was recommended to a large wedding group, most of whom were not from Marin County. The individual who made the recommendation is from the area and knows the Inn. There were only positive comments. It is near San Francisco, and also close to Sonoma and the wineries. Only disadvantage is commutation to San Francisco, especially the airport.

Lars H, 02 Octobre 2019

Out of nowhere this castle of a hotel is just there. Very nice lobby and staff making checking in fast and joyful. Rooms are clean and nice. We got rooms towards the beautiful back hill with deers running and eating outside window. Connected restaurant for dinner was cosy with a nice variety of food alternative. Do not forget the discount ticket from the checking in! Pool and jaccuzzi outside breakfast restaurant. Breakfast was fine with standrard alternatives.

"No need to look for anther hotel"
Chris H, 21 Septembre 2019

We have stayed at this Best Western many times. The location, cleanliness, comfort, amenities and the environment make this one of the nicest hotels we have ever stayed at. The mattress, pillows and bedding provide such a recuperative nights sleep - they are simply wonderful. Breakfast is plentiful and you can take that outside an eat it on the patio smelling the clean California air. The breakfast is varied, hot meals, cereal, oatmeal and many pastries, with good fresh coffee. This is a delightful place to stay!

"Exceptional night in an exceptional hotel!"
Candy G, 03 Septembre 2019

After trying two other San Rafael-area motels during work overnights, I found nirvana at the Best Western Plus Novato Oaks Inn. I will not stay in any other hotel from now on! I was greeted on arrival by two friendly and knowledgeable desk clerks who suggested happy hour at the on-site Wildfox Restaurant. Great call. Following dinner, my room was a haven: well appointed, clean, quiet and totally comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was a very pleasant surprise -- eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, pastries, breads, yogurt, and more, plus very good Starbucks coffee, hot tea and juices. I have found my new business home away from home!

"Solid service; well-appointed"
mischa181, 02 Septembre 2019

Staff and facilities fit together well; it was comfortable, sensible, and well-run. Though it would have help to put a sign on the door out to the outside pool: "Requires keycard to re-enter" :-) Definitely a plus in summer, that it's on the east slope of a ridge.

"Best First Experience"
nancyptaylor, 02 Septembre 2019

Maybe because it was my first time ever staying at a hotel, but I personally had a wonderful experience. I did not take advantage of the amenities offered because me and my partner had other plans but I'm sure they would have been great. The only thing I would have to say negatively was how warm it was in the hallway going to our room— I was expecting it to be cool and air conditioned throughout the whole hotel but it wasn't and I don't think that is a major flaw anyways because the actual hotel room had air conditioning which was GREAT. Other than that, we had a fabulous experience and would come again in the future!

"Best Best Western Plus!"
nonniellen, 28 Août 2019

I've stayed at many BW+ hotels. This is the gold standard. I wish all the locations I've stayed at were as pleasant as the times I've stayed in Novato. I joined the Rewards Program because of how consistently good my experience is at Novato Oaks Inn!

"Very nice"
spinningwheelsgalt, 25 Août 2019

Hotel was nicer than I expected. Restaurant had good food but I doubt I would have eaten in a reasonable time had I not skipped lunch n showed up just after opening. Maybe reservations? Spa was taken over by younger adolescent males. And the deck packed with seminar attendees.

"BW Novato"
plprice54, 24 Août 2019

Proximity to freeway was very convenient. Despite being less than a block from the freeway, our room was quiet and cozy. The outside balcony was shaded and lovely. Everything was very clean and comfortable. All amenities were amazing.

"Great place to stay Oakland California area!"
dbombardbecc, 19 Août 2019

What a lovely place to stay in the Oakland area! Comfy beds and pillows gave us a good night's sleep and the excellent breakfast selections fueled us for our morning excursions and family event. Staff was very friendly and helpful, made some great recommendations of things to do and places to eat. Clean accomodations and lovely grounds with a great pool area, fire pit for cool evenings, and little private spaces tucked here and there for use. Great place to relax and enjoy between family events!

"Good choice if you are visiting the Bay area and neighboring places"
andreabazzotti, 14 Août 2019

Extremely well-located and close to SF, Bay area, Napa and Sonoma, Novato etc. The hotel has been remarkably renovated. There is good restaurant next to the hotel (Wild Fox) which serves good food and drinks.

"Great location!"
jursprung524, 22 Juillet 2019

We stayed here for a wedding near by and it was located with easy access to wine country as well as San Francisco! Lots of shopping nearby if needed...we had a balcony in our room to enjoy the cool morning/evening air. Many options for breakfast to start your day. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

"spacious room"
96skb, 15 Juillet 2019

We stayed for one night and were only at the property for about 12 hours. It looks really nice from the outside, and the lobby looks updated and modern. Great first impression. Hallways, breakfast area, and pool area were all very clean, but don't match the updated feel downstairs at the entrance. Room decor is updated and rooms are very spacious. Love rooms that have the sink area separate from the shower/toilet so our family of 4 can have different people getting ready for bed/the day at the same time. Loved having the balcony to sit on in the morning. Kids really enjoyed the breakfast burritos in the morning, and we always appreciate a hotel breakfast that has some fresh cut fruit (oranges). The man working in the breakfast area was very polite and friendly. The price was a bit higher than the other hotels we stayed at on our road trip, but we would definitely return if we needed something in the area.

"Great cutomer service andgreat hotel"
Cecilia v, 08 Juillet 2019

What a wonderfully run and beautiful hotel. My family and I stayed there and was very comfortable, just like staying at home. The supervisor there Nadia was very polite, knowledgeable, and customer oriented. We we come into Novato we will definitely return for sure. Thank you for a 5 star stay.

"Novato Vacation"
Tour18642524945, 07 Juillet 2019

Best Western Novato have our family an easy place to meet in proximity to San Francisco and Marin and stay, relax by pool with kids, make s'mores, get to great restaurants, and relax with excellent staff assistance

"Comfortable, convenient, and relatively affordable."
Culture61887708038, 04 Juillet 2019

This hotel is convenient and comfortable when accessing some of Marin's towns and attractions. It has a very friendly staff. It is very clean and has updated decor. The beds are comfortable. Breakfast has a variety of choices. There is some freeway noise during heavier commute times. A fan or white noise machine would help with that, if you've got one to bring.

"great stay"
jscsf, 01 Juillet 2019

It was excellent, I wish price for a night was a little less. $200.00 was a bit much for 1 night stay. Restaurants (Thai rest,Super Duper, and Safeway are very close, Burger King was just right across the hotel,

"Great service and great room"
Carol C, 29 Juin 2019

Service from staff was excellent in every area. . They went the extra mile on everything I needed. Room was clean, nice in appearance, and very functional. The property is older but obviously remodeled and upgraded recently.

"My favorite Best Western in all of California"
Philip F, 25 Juin 2019

I have stayed here many times. The price is higher than most BW's but the value is still good given the great location, excellent breakfast, great pool and hot tub, Kuerig coffee maker in the room and Starbucks coffee in the lobby.

"Bad room"
Old_Hiker, 16 Juin 2019

We booked our reservation 6 months in advance and stayed for 5 nights. We thought this would get us a good room. Wrong. Our room was less than 20 feet from a parking space frequently occupied by idling pick-up trucks and the door to the room was across from the laundry. Have read other reviews that talk about views of hills, etc. We had a view of a parking lot with background noise from route 101. Staff was friendly and the place is spotless though.

"Excellent hotel experience"
Footprints455071, 07 Juin 2019

We spent a weekend here and really enjoyed the recently updated hotel rooms, heated pool, friendly staff and generous breakfast with waffles, eggs, sausage, muffins, bagels, yogurt, raisin bread, croissants, fresh fruit, yogurt bar with lots and lots of toppings, tea, dark chocolate hot chocolate and Starbucks coffee available 24/7. I appreciated the ample parking and the central location that made it easy to hop on the 101 to drive around Novato.

"Very accommodating"
Travelingdonnellys, 03 Juin 2019

I got married near by and stayed at the BW. The staff worked with me as I booked rooms for family and friends despite several changes and the raceway event that was occurring that same weekend. The staff continued to accommodate our every need while we stayed there, were personable and continually checked to see if I (the bride) had everything I needed. They were awesome! I also loved the fresh waffles in the morning served for breakfast. Yum!

"Great value, tons of amenities!"
bahlering, 03 Juin 2019

This hotel has a ton of great amenities at a very reasonable price. It is easily accessible from the highway and is just a short trip to SF and the wine country. I was pleasantly surprised by the pool. Ii is a huge pool situated right next to the neighboring tree lined hill which was a BEAUTIFUL backdrop and made for some excellent wildlife viewing. We saw a few deer with their fawns and a ton of majestic birds souring overhead. We went to the pool in the late afternoon when it was very mild outside and the pool was completely shaded by the trees yet the pool temperature was PERFECT. I was worried that it would be to cold, but it was cool enough to be refreshing but warm enough that you could have spent the whole evening in there without becoming uncomfortable. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the complementary breakfast was well organized with some excellent selections. Will definitely be staying here on my next trip to Marin county!

"Best for This price range!"
betteralive, 03 Juin 2019

I was part of a wedding group for a friend's & family wedding. The location to wedding venue was nice and short. Hotel and rooms felt comfortable and spacious enough, we had a double queen and the beds were perfect. Complementary breakfast was a bonus featuring your standard items. Check in & Check out was a breeze. Prices were fair for this area, and the outstanding service actually make it a bargain.

"Excellent Service, Rooms & Convience"
deltadude, 03 Juin 2019

Staff was friendly efficient and check in a breeze. Rooms very Clean, and ready before check in. We had friends staying also who had a great time and enjoyed the swimming pool, as well as the daily breakfast on the mezzanine. Beds were comfortable. My Wife and I would stay again. PS Asst Mgr Judy, and GM Michelle, are both personable, professional, and truly work hard to make our stay an excellent experience.

"Best 40th bday trip!!!!!!"
TxGrrl, 01 Juin 2019

My girlfriends and I were all visiting from different states and it was my 40th bday weekend over Memorial Day. Pleasantly surprised by the front desk staff whom were wonderful in every sense of the word!! Upon checking in, Judy at the front was so happy and helpful in looking up directions to places and (printing them out too!). Wow I wish every hotel had this woman's smiling, helpful face. We were given Wildfox restaurant coupons for 10% off and we went and used them. Great restaurant with laid back atmosphere (try the caramelized Brussel sprouts❤️) At the exit of our stay, Judy even gave us little chocolates and a bottle of wine from Wildfox!!!

"Great Stay"

Beautiful setting and Hotel a must stay if your in the area Restaurant is very nice, food and service were exceptional and service wonderful. Rooms very nice decor. and balcony was very nice to sit out and enjoy the landscape and views..

"Clearly the best!!!"
Michael G, 23 Mai 2019

This is the finest hotel with the most caring professional and personable staff. Clean rooms even through a renovation of the lobby the staff smiled and made our days better. My wife was there for over 4 weeks and me for half of that while we awaited the birth of our granddaughter. They assisted with extending our stay and provided great guidance. The on-site hotel Wildfox was great and the included continental breakfast was tasty, great coffee, pastries, waffles, eggs etc. the rooms are large, and modern. We even had a view of the birth and reading of a fawn from our window.

"Older Hotel Overpriced"
Cruiser10351957334, 20 Mai 2019

I stayed here as part of a wedding block for a friend's wedding/ Location to venue was nice and short. Hotel and rooms had an outdated feel to them. Complementary breakfast was a bonus i was not expecting featuring your standard items. Check in & Check out was a breeze. however price for the rooms was way more that it should have been for that hotel

"Friendly staff and clean rooms"
Anietta18, 18 Mai 2019

The very friendly and helful staff are great at this best western plus. The big sized rooms are clean and have a fridge and microwave. The buffet style breakfast is included but no thrills to be expected.

"Great Place"
831viviand, 25 Avril 2019

Great place to stay. I have stayed at this Best Western several times and I have never had a disappointing stay. It is always clean, the staff is helpful and the breakfast has lots of yummy things to chose from!

"Better than San Rafael"
Stylist41, 25 Avril 2019

We where going to muir woods so looked for a best western in the area. This one and san rafael came up. So glad we chose this one. Overall appearance and quality is much higher. People where friendly. So happy even decided to stay another night.

"Peaceful value"
Roam02169545267, 13 Avril 2019

We loved our stay here, the breakfast is hearty and the variety pleased all eaters. The pool area is beautiful and a great place to relax by day or BBQ/ fire pit at night. The beds are also very comfortable, we definitely hope to be back!

"Great hotel experience"
JAF2511, 05 Avril 2019

I loved this hotel! We had a great experience staying here. We were here for 3 nights and we had no complaints. It is in a beautiful location with rolling hills surrounding it. We were checked in quickly, and the people at the front desk were very nice. The room was clean, and the beds were so comfortable. The water pressure in the shower was excellent. They have DirecTV with HBO and the wifi gave us no problems whatsoever. The breakfast was delicious and we were thrilled they had hot foods. They had eggs, sausage, make your own waffles and even microwaveable breakfast burritos. My kids had cereal, oatmeal and even donuts. They have a really good selection. They also have Starbucks Caffe Verona blend and it is so good! They even have it in the lobby at all times for overnight guests, as well as tea and hot chocolate. All in all, we enjoyed our stay here and we'll definitely come back if we ever visit SF again.

"Just ok."
Nemesia C, 01 Avril 2019

When we first arrived I thought it had a nice presentation. The front desk lady on the first day was extremely helpful with brochures and tips on traveling to the city! The bed was really comfortable, nice selection on the continental breakfast, 10% off coupon on the conveniently located restaurant next door, easy parking, but we also started noticing alot of ants in our room. Ewww. There was no shampoo in the room. Got some at the front desk. We thought the tv was broke but the cable needed wiggled. The staff the rest of the stay was not so friendly. The commute to San fransico is a good 30 min and that's after peak times. Would I stay there again? Only of it was my only option.

"Excellent Deal and Really Clean"
Wanderer42469990414, 07 Mars 2019

It was two queen, didn't really get to spend much time but loved the breakfast, employee's where very friendly and helpful, and the rooms were clean which is definitely a positive. an example of how the staff was very helpful was when I asked what the closest grocery was to get some milk for my 1 yr old and they brought it by the time I got to the room. We are from D.C and they really helped us around for tourist places.

"The Best Best Western"
Julie A, 06 Mars 2019

We have family in the area so we travel to Novato several times a year. We always stay at this location. The rooms are great size, clean and the most comfortable hotel beds I have ever seen. All staff is friendly and greats you as you walk by.I would not consider staying at any other hotel in Novato.

"Will be back"
Trek22683216607, 25 Février 2019

We have to travel to Novato for a Dr. appointment every couple of months. Our daughter-in-law stayed at Novato Oaks the month before and was very impressed ,and recommended it. We stay there for our Dr. appointments now. There are restaurants , good shopping close by. The motel is clean, friendly, and has a excellent breakfast. We will be back! Looking forward to our free night.

"Love the room updates, breakfast, not so much."
anybody_10, 12 Février 2019

We were careful to ask for a quiet room that wasn't near any ongoing construction. They are updating the rooms and the parking lot has quite a few storage containers containing cabinets etc.. We got a room that had been redone and it looks nicely updated. The front desk staff was very nice too. The breakfast was so-so. They had an egg dish that looked like a taco and it had a slice of American cheese melted in the middle of it. The cheese wasn't obvious and my husband took a bite and had to spit it out. I like cheese, but this wasn't tasty. Thankfully, it scraped off easily.

"great property for a stay"
billmE5849WV, 04 Février 2019

This is a very well kept and operated venue. Great amenities and staff. Perfect location for the North Bay area. The pool area looked very inviting and I would use it next time if the weather permitted. Dining area for breakfast was very comfortable and spacious.

"Beautiful Hotel"
Venture29781305659, 29 Décembre 2018

Hotel is beautiful, on wonderfully landscaped property. Check in was fast and easy. Room as I have always found at Best Western Hotels to be clean and well kept. Easy access to room service with restaurant next door.

"Truly a Great Hotel"
monty5861, 15 Décembre 2018

I found this to be an exceptional hotel and a convenient location right off highway 101. The room was perfect and had a desk, lounge chair, microwave, fridge and even a keurig coffee maker. There was also a balcony with two chairs and a table. Perfect for a glass of wine. The staff was courteous and made you feel welcome. The breakfast had many selections including eggs and sausage. It was also open until 10:00 am. I would definitely book this hotel again when in the area.

"Great choice"
yankeelass57, 22 Novembre 2018

We only stayed one night but were very impressed and would return. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious and comfortable; there was a deck though not sure anyone would want to sit there overlooking the highway. There's an attractive pool and hot tub. We were told there was a complimentary continental breakfast but in fact there was a good choice which included sausages and eggs. Little touches like cookies in the lobby and a discount at a nearby restaurant all added to a very positive experience.If we'd stayed longer the noise from the highway and hallway might have become a bit of an issue but for one night, terrific value.

"4 - 4.5 stars"
Lynne G, 13 Novembre 2018

This hotel was perfect for us. Our room was spacious with very comfortable beds and two chairs and we also had a small balcony with two more chairs. Our bathroom was excellent with a roll in shower, and lots of towels. The staff on Reception were helpful and charming. Breakfast was very good. There is a very good restaurant on the premises too. All in all, it rated very highly for us.

"Great hotel in Novato"
Michael C, 13 Novembre 2018

Beautiful hotel lobby and really liked the design of our room. Very comfortable beds. Located right off the freeway which was convenient. If you're hungry, there is a hotel restaurant and Burger King directly across the street. Would definitely stay there again.

"San Rafael"
Sharon G, 08 Novembre 2018

The room was clean, quiet, near where we wanted to be. There is Shopping (reatail & grocery) nearby along with restaurants, gas, and the expressway (101) which takes you to many sightseeing areas. Would stay here again.

"Friendly employees, refreshed rooms, easy highway access"
Pete H, 04 Novembre 2018

Haven't stayed at a BW for a long time. This property is old like all of them but clean and refreshed rooms. A good value. Front desk experience was very professional and pleasant. Attached restaurant offered room service.

"Visitor Satisfaction"
barrytown, 02 Octobre 2018

The staff at the Best Western Plus Novato Oaks Inn are focused on providing problem free stays and superior customer support. The rooms are well equipped and most have balconies. If you need anything extra, like an in-room microwave or a rollaway bed, the staff will always attempt to ensure your needs are met.

"Amazing Hotel"
bellelaina, 02 Octobre 2018

This is by far one of the best of the Best Westerns you will ever stay at from the convenient location right off the highway but without the noise to welcoming staff,beautiful decor and grounds clean,compfy rooms plus nice gym with a great breakfast.

Roy J, 01 Octobre 2018

More like a 3 1/2 star. The hotel is in a good location in the Napa Sonoma area & is in the area's mid range of prices. The rooms are reasonably well put together, but don't expect great views from the rooms. Like other chains that offer breakfast, the food was OK. We were there for 5 days & the selection did not vary. Also, there wasn't much in the way of fruit, except for apples & bananas. The staff was helpful & it was easy to get around from there. There is a restuarant & bar on the property that was OK, but not great.

"Great location"
ladyswan30, 30 Septembre 2018

Extremely friendly staff. The room was spacious an the bed was very comfortable. The location is easy access off the highway an hotel sits up on the hill. Very quite. The restaurant on the property has excellent service an we had a very delicious dinner an dessert was scrumptious. I would definitely come back.

"Great location, nice hotel, superior value"
Passport443095, 22 Septembre 2018

The location was perfect for me and the hotel was quite nice. Rooms are sized well, with plenty of room. Real glass drink glasses was a nice surprise too. The restaurant had a really nice menu with a range of pricing. The staff was the best, going out of their way to be accomodating.

"Great Experience!"
267jean, 09 Septembre 2018

We had a group block of 10 rooms that was simple to book with Travis, their group sales coordinator. All aspects of service from check-in, quality and cleanliness of rooms, and breakfast were great. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. Excellent quality for a reasonable price.

"Great Place in Point Reyes"
Nancy H, 30 Août 2018

We stayed just one night, but our stay was very comfortable. The room was very spacious and super clean. We had a small balcony. Although we didn't use the pool, it was in a really nice setting at the back of the hotel with trees surrounding it. The breakfast room was very large and well-stocked. I found the staff to be super helpful at check-in, answering our questions about the area. The Inn is right off the highway, which made it super convenient for getting out and on the road to our hiking destination.

"Clean, comfortable & courteous"
dezandseth, 29 Août 2018

We've stayed at this location on 3 separate occasions in the last few months, and with 2 more trips north coming up, we plan on staying here again. The staff at the desk was helpful and courteous. Check-in was quick and easy, as was check-out. The rooms we've stayed in have been clean, well-kept and spacious. Breakfast is included and while it's not anything overly amazing, it's definitely nice and very much appreciated. They go to a lot of work to prepare the food and it never runs low. Location is easy to spot and easy to get to from the freeway. We will certainly be back!

"Great stay"
KBKai, 28 Août 2018

Clean nicely appointed rooms. Room 3208 (top floor) faces the hillside for extra quiet and privacy. Hotel is in a convenient location and has a nice restaurant next door. Great value for the area. Will stay here again.

"Wonderful oldtime bar"
Rita P, 27 Août 2018

I met a friend for cocktails and was pleasantly surprised at the great bar menu. Very good and so reasonable. Parking is very expensive at Nob Hill parking lots, so if you can use the nearby cable car you will save a lot.

"Coastal Travels"
Jo Anne B, 20 Août 2018

We were down to visit San Francisco and Novato was perfect for the distance. Not too far away and not right in SF. We had four night at this hotel and settled in comfortably. We would head in mid morning after rush hour and it would take approx 30 mins to the city. Spent the day in the city so no rush hour to battle back either. The hotel had a great pool for the kids, the staff were friendly and informative and the breakfast great every morning. The restaurant next to the hotel had great food which came with a discount but I don't recommend the pizza joint they have in their hotel info book.

"Really love to stay at this hotel, top quality"
Philip F, 17 Août 2018

I suspect I have reviewed this hotel here before but here goes again. I have never been disappointed here by room, staff, or facility. The pillows are very nice, the in-room and lobby coffee selections are excellent, the pool and hot tub are great, and the breakfast has a wide selection of quality items. The summer rate is sometimes hard on my business expense account and I'm forced to stay elsewhere but I always try to stay here.

"Pricey Hotel"
Donald S, 23 Juillet 2018

This is a great hotel and a great location to what we wanted to do in CA. The only issue is the high price of the hotel room. Because of its location, so far from San Fran, the cost should be lower. Otherwise we had a great stay. The breakfast was very good. The fitness center adequate and the pool very nice.

"A fine room and excellent breakfast"
zacharysanchez, 18 Juillet 2018

Honestly with the proximity to Sam Francisco and other bay area sites this is one of, if not the best hotels to stay at weather for a day or for a week. It's is. Plus which means it goes above the regular Best Western standard. The price is indeed worth it however especially when you consider a very good breakfast in the morning.

"Best BW Anywhere / Like a Resort"
Richard_StL, 16 Juillet 2018

This is our second stay and certainly not our last. If we didn't have promises to keep we'd stay another night to make it three. Here's what we love: West facing rooms (2312 this time) face a California brown hill alive w scrub jays, and an occasional black tail deer. The pool is big enough for swimming laps in a couple directions and the expansive deck has comfortable furniture and a firepit. Artwork, and corridor carpets carry the "Oaks" theme consistently. People are friendly. Quiet mechanical which are important to us. For us this comes 2 weeks into our 7-week western-loop road trip and its a great place to unwind from our activities and catching up with people. A place for a down-day. Here are amenities we wish we had but didn't. 1. A microwave. Kind of a surprise it wasn't there. 2. A shower wand. No surprise on this one. I don't think any BW has shower wands. But the cost so little. Why not? Are they harder to clean or maintain in a measurable way?

"Front desk has the personality of drywall"
unsatisfied123456352, 15 Juillet 2018

The facilities need upgrading, the rooms feel dingy, plugging in the coffeemaker and the hairdryer into the same circuit shorted my room, and the staff... my goodness the front desk staff here make you feel like you're asking them for a kidney when you need their help and if I were their parents, I would have to scold them for being so cold, bordering on rude. A simple smile,

rschwa105463, 15 Juillet 2018

If you like hot rooms no microwave and love to eat in hundred degree weather on the second floor this place is for you!! It was 98 Degrees on the second floor where breakfast was served one small fan blowing .People sitting sweating while trying it eat . Crazy we went to IHOP.

"You can't find a better place to stay"
Mike G, 12 Juin 2018

We were on our way to LA and thought this was good area to stay just north of SF. Boy were we right. From check in to check out everything was first class. Don't skip breakfast, you will be sorry if you do.

"Northern CA Training Workshops"
bcdaze, 03 Juin 2018

Originally choose this Best Western Hotel as it was close to where the workshops were held. So glad I did pick this hotel listen to others at the workshop who were staying elsewhere. The room was extremely clean, well layed out and the bed was very, very comfortable. The Continental breakfast offered both hot & cold offerings and there was plenty for all hotel guests. I would recommend this hotel!

"Yosemite and California coast adventure"
cnhbowles, 01 Juin 2018

This best Western was our third accommodation on an eight different accommodation adventure. Of our chain hotels that we stayed this is probably one of our favorites. It was clean, the price was right, breakfast was great. The front desk Ladies were amazing. Supr helpful and nice people!! They have a nice pool area with a fire pit up on the patio. Was a good stopping point on our way to the coast.

"Great Value"
allenb401, 28 Mai 2018

This hotel is one of the nicest Best Westerns I have stayed in. Room was immaculate and well decorated, hotel is located against a hill and was surprisingly quiet even though it is next to highway 101. The restaurant was lively and had great food. Hotel staff was very attentive and polite - this is a great location at a great price. I will make this my hotel of choice in the Novato area.

"Nice Hotel but a bit pricey"
godivatin, 28 Mai 2018

Overall the hotel was nice. What I expect from a hotel, clean, comfortable, quiet. The breakfast could use some healthier options, the workout facility was well equipped. The hotel is overpriced, but similar hotels in the area were similarly priced. Or perhaps I should say overpriced.

"Spacious room next to very good restaurant, Wild Fox."
Doris R, 18 Mai 2018

I chose this hotel due to its proximity to Hwy 101 and a dear friend's home. It was spacious, comfortable and with a very good bed. The breakfast items on the buffet were ok. I really appreciated the fresh apples to take with me. The coffee was good and the buffet area is comfortable.

"Work trip to Novato"
Leigh M, 14 Mai 2018

A trip for work brought me to the Best Western Plus Novato Oaks Inn. I had a very nice stay. The room was clean and the bed were comfortable. The bathroom was fine, if a little old in the fixtures and wall-covering area. After taking a shuttle from SFO, I made one phone call to the hotel and they sent a nice van over to pick me up from the bus drop-off and take me right over to the hotel. That whole transaction took less than 15 minutes. All the folks working there were invariably nice and helpful. At one point the thermostat controller flaked out and they came right away to try to fix it. As the problem was going to require more work than they could provide that night, they offered to move me to another room. I didn't want to move, as it was late in the evening and I was tired, so they brought me a fan, and that worked beautifully. Great service! Breakfast is what you would expect - nothing spectacular, but a good start to the day and well tended service areas.

"Clean, comfortable, good layout"
karenlT1839ZX, 28 Avril 2018

We had a two-queen room, which was large and had a full size desk. The sink was separated from the shower/tub and toilet section, which was convenient for two people. We were only there overnight so did not take advantage of amenities beyond the Keurig coffee maker. The place was quite pretty. The buffet breakfast included sausages, egg tarts, hard boiled eggs, fresh oranges and bananas, waffle machine. I was impressed with the calm and courteous helpfulness of the front desk person when attacked by an hysterical patron who clearly needed a nap. Right away.

"Clean, well-placed, could use updating."
lungfish2k, 22 Avril 2018

A great location, clean place, probably was faubulous in the early '90s. The check-in clerk was really friendly, but the hotel employees staring at those few of us eating breakfast was unnecessary. Medium.

"Convenient to Muir Woods"
JWA1621, 07 Avril 2018

Good hotel. Had an issue with someone smoking next door, and they immediately moved us. Good breakfast, pool looked nice (didn't use), adjacent restaurant provided a delicious dinner! Rooms were slightly dated, but comfortable.

"Best Western Novato"
Peffredgrowl, 04 Avril 2018

Very nice facility, clean comfortable, nicely equipped room with excellent amenities. Great bed, lots of pillows of different sizes, a good amount of warm blankets. Excellent location just off the freeway, very safe location.

"Clean Property"
Sam P, 01 Avril 2018

Property is clean. Rooms, carpets, beds, bathrooms all are clean probably due to renovation. This is a BW plus so breakfast is a little step up from the regular BW. But nothing to celebrate about - the same machine food you get in most hotel breakfasts. Cereals, oats, waffle maker, milk, yogurt (greek), breads, plastic eggs :) , juices, Starbucks coffee. Parking is easy. Safeway across from the property but need to cross the freeway. Overall good place to stay - one of the better BW plus properties in this larger area.

"Always a great stay"
Jamie A, 01 Avril 2018

This hotel is always my first choice when visiting the SF Bay Area. Excellent staff, clean and comfortable rooms and centrally located. Extra kudos to the front desk staff and the housekeeping staff for their attention to detail and commitment to provide outstanding customer service.

"Clean stay, gorgeous view"
loconnell92, 31 Mars 2018

It was a perfect location - we got to stay right off the interstate without having to search for a hotel off an exit ramp or find our way back on in the morning. But there was no road noise! Clean comfy stay.

"Pleasant stay in a convenient location"
Judy S, 28 Mars 2018

We are please to be staying at this hotel conveniently located right on the freeway. We came here to explore Point Reyes National Seashore. The hotel has obviously been recently remodeled and they did a beautiful job. The grounds and room impeccably clean and conveniently arranged. Staff is friendly and the breakfast is very good. I can see where this would be a real gem of a location for Bay Area people who need to get away from it. If we come back to the area we will definitely come back to this hotel.

"Best stay"
JuneC129, 27 Mars 2018

My husband and I stayed here for a week! From pre check in to check out, this hotel was fabulous! Clean rooms, comfy beds, 24/7 coffee, breakfast was 1st class with one of the best selections ever, fresh fruit, pastries, cereal, waffles...! So easy to find using our gps. Staff always welcoming, knowledgeable, and a+ with any concerns. We did use room service and they too were fantastic, hot, quick and really not expensive! Our room faced the mountain and our view was natural fauna, next time I'd opt for the balcony to enjoy my coffee looking out at the fantastic view. The pictures represented in others reviews put mine to shame as I took them after some wine! This hotel made our 1st vacation to the west coast worry free! Can't wait to go back!

"Great Conference Location"
Y176QNjohnm, 27 Mars 2018

When holding a conference North of San Francisco Bay, this location is well worth considering. The Meeting areas are large and comfortable, the detached restaurant has excellent food and service and appears also to be popular with the locals, and the hotel amenities themselves are quite nice too. There is a rear courtyard with a pool, hot tub and firepit. this area is nicely tiered to fit in with the hillside location. Free time? lots in the area to do and see as well.

"Best Location, Best for Business Travelers"
Linda C, 21 Mars 2018

Clean, quiet, comfortable, nice view, excellent service. Rooms are a nice size for two. This new Best Western Plus is ideal for female business travelers. All doors to rooms are inside the hotel. Excellent location for Marin and Sonoma County. Only drawback is traffic in the Bay Area is awful not matter where you are or what time of day, but, that is no fault of the hotel's.

"Very good"
JubyIII, 17 Mars 2018

A large Inn near the 101 freeway but minimum noise. Room was just fine, very large, clean, and a refrigerator. Breakfast was typical for BW Inns. The pool will be great in summer months. Plenty of parking.

"Very nice property and very reasonably priced"
r0binh00d9, 16 Mars 2018

This property has great customer service and is a tremendous value for the cost. Their breakfast is great. It is no problem at all adjusting or cancelling reservations. The location is very convenient being just of the freeway.

"Novato BW Plus"
karensuslow, 16 Mars 2018

Excellent location for my needs. Beautiful walking areas and fire trails nearby. Multiple good restaurants and hidden gems. Enjoy staying at this property whenever I have a chance and purposefully select this hotel over others in the area.

"Value for Money"
Andreas L, 28 Février 2018

I spent almost 10 days in July at the hotel. People were kind and the hotel was clean. Breakfast was fair for the price I paid. Staff was willing to help as they immediadly changed my room when I asked them to do so. What is most important though is the location. it is north of san francisco (almost 35mins drive) and very close to novato, san rafael and sausalito. Parking is spacious and the restaurant next to the hotel serves delicious food. It could have been a bit cheaper but over it good.

"Beyond Expectations!"
AllocatedTraveler, 08 Février 2018

It's been several years since we've stayed at a BW and boy oh boy, have they come a long way! Check in was very quick and easy with the employee's being extremely helpful and friendly. The front desk called about 20 minutes after we checked into our room to make sure everything was as expected and asked if we needed anything. We were greeted (not in a creepy way) each time we walked passed the front desk during our stay which made us feel very welcomed. Our room was large with warm tones and comforting décor. Bed was comfortable, carpet was soft and the overall feeling was relaxed. Everything was clean, clean, clean!! The only thing I would have preferred would have been more pillow choices. We had several pillows but they all had the same relative thickness. I'm sure if I would have called the front desk they would have been more than accommodating to bring a new selection. We had virtually no noise which surprised me considering we were facing the 101. The walls were solid and we only heard the door across from us close twice. Construction was being done on our floor but we did not hear any noise coming from those rooms. I loved that the thermostat had a motion sensor on it which makes it very eco friendly! Bathroom was large with great water pressure in the shower. There was a choice of two lights in there. One was a light with the vent fan (nice to have when traveling with the hubby) and the other was on a timer (which he found funny to have go off while I was in the shower). Since we had plans both mornings we were there, we did not get a chance to try the continental breakfast that was offered. I cannot comment on housekeeping either as we opted for skipping it (we tend to be low maintenance). When we returned to our room later in the day there was a voicemail on our in-room phone saying that if we wanted housekeeping to come in, just call down to the front desk and let them know. If I had to find something wrong with the room the only thing I could pick would be the noise coming from water pipes in the wall during the morning when you first turn on the hot water (ours at home make way more noise). If that's the only issue I ever have in a hotel, I'm good with that because that's no big F'n deal in my book. Will we be staying here again??? Hell ya!

"A very nice Best Western, but."
WeeLuv2Travel2, 28 Janvier 2018

Check in was simple with very friendly staff. Nice large room with good size bathroom. Everything very clean, more TV channels than we would know what to do with. Breakfast was very nice especially the quiche/frittata. Bed was very comfortable and noise level very low. Lobby was very nice with nice library area. Coffee available all day as well as water fountains. Only minor downside was that I went to the laundry one morning to find both washing machines full of clothes but not running! I then noticed there were coins in the slots ready to use the machines, weird. I went to reception and asked what I should do. They came back to the laundry with me and asked if it was ok with me for them to run the machines and they offered to do my wash as soon as the machines were finished. I agreed to that but given there was no one there I would have emptied one of the machines and left the quarters. I went back to the laundry room a little later and the machines were in progress. I then went to reception to get my laundry which I was more than happy to do now things were moving. After waiting to allow the other wash to finish I went back to the laundry to start my wash. The lady who had monopolized the machines was there with a rather scary looking dog!!! This hotel had a no pet policy!! The dog kept heading in my direction until the lady told the dog to sit which did not work very well and I just wanted to get out of there as I'm allergic to dogs. I returned later to dry my clothes but both dryers were in use as was the second washer. I left again and returned to find the same lady loading up the washers again! I was able to finally get my clothes in the dryer but when I went back to collect them the same lady was loading the washers again. Very strange. I asked reception about the dog and they told me that it must be a service/comfort dog. The dog had no jacket indicating this so assume this must be a Californian thing. A great hotel but don't think we'll be back if service dogs have priority over my allergies

"Wonderful Overnight Stay!"
Tara K, 28 Janvier 2018

My husband and I did a mini getaway and had a wonderful stay at this Best Western. The staff was friendly & knowledgeable. The decor was relaxing. The bed was comfortable, in a nice size room. Great breakfast

"1 night stay"
lwest1124, 18 Janvier 2018

very nice hotel with a great breakfast and free wifi. The rooms were very clean and a great comp. Starbucks coffee available. Felt very safe in this area and the staff was friendly. Would stay here again!

"Love it -Ash"
tattdcoach31, 11 Janvier 2018

Helpful and caring staff Nada helped us at check in and check out offered water at check. We were driving from Selma, Ca to attend the front excellence class loved the room location next time I travel I will be staying there

"Excellent Hotel"
tracit2018, 03 Janvier 2018

Was very impressed with the size, cleanliness, and decor of the room. It was nice and quiet for a hotel room, although we were on the backside of the hotel away from the freeway. Would stay here again, for sure.

"Very Enjoyable Stay"
makjms, 01 Janvier 2018

Everything here was great! The only thing was challenging was the laundry room. It said it opened I think at 8, but nobody was there and it took too long to get it opened when we asked so we had to do our laundry at our next hotel. It would be nice for late travelers coming in to be able to use the workout room and laundry a little later in the evenings. The pool is not heated. The rest of the stay was very nice, we will return the the hotel another time when we are in the area.

712neily, 01 Janvier 2018

For the record, I am a Best Western Rewards Diamond member and I have stayed in probably 4 dozen Best Western hotels, as well as almost 300 other hotels before I retired. I love getting good reviews and I hate giving bad reviews. This is a great review: The staff in this hotel is OUTSTANDING! Just about the best I've ever dealt with. Michelle Duffy, the GM can be very proud of her staff and how they treated me as well as other guests. I had a chance to talk with her and was very impressed with her warmth and friendliness. I want to recognize, by name, some of the staff who made my stay an absolute delight. At the Front Desk: Amanda, Frankie, Nadia, and Judy. Travis was manning the desk at checkout. Rolando and Allan were also standouts helping me with my bags and driving me into downtown Novato to catch the bus into San Francisco. I had a suite that would have been perfect for a romantic tryst or an oasis for a weary traveler. GOOD STUFF - The bed linen was as soft and comfortable as silk. - The bathrobes were a nice touch. Not plush, but stretchable enough to fit my rather large frame. - The Keurig machine in the room brewed a nice cup of coffee. - The breakfast coffee was full-bodied and delicious. 3 NITPICKS - The breakfast area was quite nice, but the food was average. - There was no safe in the room. - The shower head was placed very low and came up to my belly button . . . Okay, my lower chest. I give this hotel my highest recommendation.

"Clean and comfortable"
Elisa C, 01 Janvier 2018

The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable. Hotel staff is available 24/7 and always ready to help with concerns or questions. Fresh coffee & fruit infused water is always available in the lobby. There is no muggy hotel smell in the rooms. I highly recommend this hotel.

"Great value just outside SF"
Shelley M, 31 Décembre 2017

We stayed here...a little less than 20 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge...a 28.00 Uber ride to the north end of the bridge, where many of the bus tours pick up. Convenient and a WHOLE LOT cheaper than SF. Nice hotel and rooms. Big bathroom, with sink outside of it so others can still be getting ready even if someone is showering (forever, like a teenager, LOL). Typical amenities including large dorm fridge, but the only microwave we ever found was in the complimentary breakfast area! Welcoming lobby with water feature, reading area with lots of books, upstairs breakfast area could use more tables, but selection of foods is good. Lots of outside areas to the pool, in an intimate area with landscaping and a covered table, etc. Get a ground floor room..the only elevator is in the middle building, so if you are on the second-floor you have to use the stairs or go up in the main building elevator and key card between buildings. Patio walls and a slight elevation still give ground floor rooms privacy. You get a 10% off coupon to the on-site (next door) restaurant. If you take a bus tour, make sure you are back NORTH of the Golden Gate Bridge before you call an Uber...Ubers don't cross the bridge, and a taxi from Fisherman's Wharf to Novato is $125 (don't ask me how I know!).

"Great value and close to 101"
sandramU4598XK, 27 Décembre 2017

This hotel is a great value for the $ and we plan to stay there each time we are in the area. The rooms have lots of space. The breakfast is more than adequate. They also have balconies. Very close to our destination via Highway 101. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

"Novado Oaks stay"
Frank B, 26 Décembre 2017

I don't want to tell anybody how good this place is because I want to make sure there are rooms the next time I make reservations. Great location, fantastic and friendly staff and couldn't ask for a cleaner faciltiy. My whole family enjoyed our stay. It was difficult to leave but we are coming back.

"Nice stay"
103mje, 23 Décembre 2017

We had to be in the area for family reasons. We were exhausted and looking forward to a restful stay. Check-in was easy. We had a very nice dinner at the restaurant. The room was clean, comfortable and attractive. Breakfast was good with a decent variety of offerings.

"I LOVE NOVATO OAKS Best Western Plus"
Rotaroter, 11 Décembre 2017

I always go to Best Western Plus Novato Oaks because there is easy parking, clean and quality rooms, friendly staff, books to read, and a very friendly staff. The ADA room had a great shower. It is fun to be greeted with a chocolate cookie late at night.

"Great value, great service"
Sunny S, 11 Décembre 2017

After several trips to Novato, staying at a competitor hotel, I decided to try the Best Western Plus Novato Oaks Inn, because the price was so much better. I was VERY pleasantly surprised that for less money, I got a way better experience. Lovely, helpful staff, great breakfast, and attached to a very nice restaurant and bar. Easy access to freeway, great view of the sunrise - altogether, a really great experience.

"Great overnight stay in Novato"
Julie S, 11 Décembre 2017

We needed a place to stay close to Petaluma since my son had an early morning gymnastics meet Sunday morning. Novato is about 20 mins away so we booked a night here. The location was great, off of Hwy101 and close to Super Duper Burger where we grabbed dinner after we check in. They also have a restaurant on site which looked pretty good too. Plenty of parking which is a PLUS! Staff was very friendly and checked us in right away. Our room was on the second floor in the second building. There was a funny smell in the hallway but overall wasn't a deal breaker. The set up of the room was different. The bathroom (toilet/shower) are separate (great for privacy) but was soon as you walk into the room you hit into the sink which seemed like such a strange place for it. The coffee maker is sitting on the sink. The closet is on the right as soon as you walk in. Two queen beds, TV, table with 2 chairs. There is a mini fridge which was handy but disappointed there was no microwave. Morning breakfast had a nice hodge podge of items but I was missing bacon. Sausages, egg patties, some egg type soufflé was there, make your own waffle, donuts, muffins, cereal, yogurt, boiled eggs, fruit, and juice was all available. We had a great night stay and the bed was comfortable. The mattress felt like a memory foam type so I enjoyed my night's sleep. Nice place, would recommend it if looking for a place in Novato.

"Great value for an overnight in Novato"
krestona, 10 Décembre 2017

My stay at Best Western Novato Oaks was for a business conference--overnight only. The location--just off Hwy 101--was convenient and easy. The hotel is nice--open, bright rooms with a desk and comfy chair along with a very comfortable bed. The staff were polite and professional at check-in. Express check-out was helpful. The price for an overnight stay in the SF north bay area I thought was pretty reasonable, and included morning breakfast.

"Back to Novato Oaks"
citySaigon, 08 Décembre 2017

We always love to come back to the CA Coast and stay at this hotel: love the design of the hotel (especially the spacious rooms), even the exterior of the hotel have been maintained pretty well after years in business. The breakfast provides multiple choices: waffles, donuts, muffins, quiches, Starbucks coffee served all day, etc....

"Pleasantly Surprised"
183tiffanyu, 16 Novembre 2017

First time staying at a Best Western and I was a little nervous initially; however the hotle was nice, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Great restaruant next door the beds were very comfortable.

"Great experience"
982margarital, 14 Novembre 2017

I stayed here for business. Staff was very nice and helpful. the breakfast was good. The internet was decently fast. I ate at the restaurant 1 night food was good and people there were friendly. I usually don't stay this far north when I travel for business, but I was having a hard time finding a hotel and this popped up as an option. I would stay here again if I was ever in the area.

"They Deserve the 'Plus'"
jrhinomo, 12 Novembre 2017

The 'Plus' in the name must indicate something more than we knew before our stay. Only stayed one night with our family of 5 but really felt we got our money's worth. The room was plenty spacious for our family to allow our little one to sleep on the floor without threat of a stomping. The bedding was comfortable and clean. We appreciate the divided wash basin from the toilet/tub area - let people handle their business in separate spaces. The morning breakfast spread had plenty of options - sweets, cereals, breads, yogurts and juices. They offered a cheesy, sausage omelette that was one of the best breakfast items we've had in a chain hotel. We depleted their stock of those flavorful bites. I always give extra credit for hotels offering a complimentary Wall Street Journal. I don't need the local news - give me something substantive.

"Almost great - but no WIFI"
laurapF6213BL, 06 Novembre 2017

I stayed at this hotel for a business trip based on the location and overall high score on TripAdvisor. I did review comments from past guests and found there was some inconsistency from one guest giving high reviews and the next giving moderate to low reviews. The self-parking is easy to access and close to the hotel. The guest rooms are spacious and clean with large bathroom. I liked the Keurig coffee maker as I usually bring my own coffee k-cups. I was on the hillside of the hotel and did not hear any freeway noise or hotel noise. The biggest downfall and why I will hesitate to stay at a Best Western Plus was the very slow working WIFI. My device was constantly searching for the WIFI signal and loaded one page over about 5 minutes to 10 minutes - VERY SLOW. I was unable to stream anything not Hulu, Netflix, Amazon or even YouTube. When I contacted the front desk, I was told to come to the lobby for working WIFI. I can't imagine that traveling on a business trip would require me to pajama party in the lobby just to use the WIFI. I consider that unacceptable as there is no excuse to say you have WIFI when in fact you don't unless your room is right over the lobby.

"A Port in the Storm!"
shayneandib, 01 Novembre 2017

We had evacuated ourselves and my Mom & her caregiver from Santa Rosa during the North Coast fires in Oct 2017. We were desperate to find a hotel, so on short notice, the staff accommodated our needs and managed to keep us there as we extended our stay, trying to wait out the fires. We had to change rooms a couple of times (due to our short notice), but they did everything they could to minimize that. Everyone, from the front desk staff to the housekeeping staff was excellent! And they have a great breakfast! Room service was excellent as well as the on-property restaurant!

"Novato Best Western"
richardsH4591BG, 01 Novembre 2017

My room facing the highway had traffic noise as one might expect. Although it had a nice balcony and view, the traffic noise distracts, even though at some distance from the hotel. Room itself is comfortable with the amenities well placed. High quality TV with large flat screen. The coffee maker is one that does one cup at a time, but a more sophisticated model, and regular solid cups are provided, not the styrifoam type. Hot water from bath faucets was immediate and adjusting water temp was easy..

"Great Place to Stay in Novato"
sandracP9583NZ, 31 Octobre 2017

As a borderline germ-o-phobe, I have to say this hotel far exceeded any expectations I had of staying in a hotel. I was there for 4 nights, visiting my sister in Novato. It was comfortable, accessible with WiFi, and CLEAN. Breakfast was great (little quiches) with a wide selection of cereal, waffles, etc. and 24 hr availability of Starbucks coffee. Slightly on the expensive side (coming from New England) but well worth it. I would highly recommend the Best Western Novato Oaks Inn if you are staying in the area!

"Great Place To Stay"
V6941NPjacquelinec, 22 Octobre 2017

This hotel has beautiful,fresh, tranquil decor. All staff members are very helpful and professional. Beds are THE most comfortable I've ever slept on. Restaurant has a good selection and very good food. I do think $230 a night is too expensive.

"Fire Victims faced price gouging."
J4419DGstephenj, 18 Octobre 2017

My wife and I were mandatory evacuated, due to the Sonoma Valley Fires. My wife has Stage 4 Melonoma, and can't stay at a shelter. I explained all this, and was told there was no extended stay discount. We had no choice but to stay. After speaking to several other fire victims, we found that most hotels were giving decent discounts I have a heart condition, and had to get medical attention, after being treated so badly. My cancer ridden wife was crying.

"Excellent Reservations/Front Desk Staff"
P8803GJjasonm, 17 Octobre 2017

The people who take reservations and help check people in are amazing. They went out of their way during all the wild fires to take excellent care of their guests. They were very helpful with the first responders as well as other business guests that were out in the area for disaster relief

"Great hotel experience every time!"
Joan W B, 07 Octobre 2017

I've come here 4 times in the past 2 years, avg.10 days each time, and it's consistently clean, quiet, comfortable, efficiently managed and welcoming. The breakfast has a wonderful variety, especially considering it's free, with a staff that keeps it filled and clean.

"Ok, but not Fantastic. "
AMKaja85, 03 Octobre 2017

I wanted to like this place and there were plenty of good things about it: nice location with easy access to SF and wine country, warm, delicious cookies in the lobby each night, clean rooms, friendly staff, ample parking. But then there were the fails; worst was the AC. We kept the temp set at 73, but the room would cycle up to 78 before AC blower kicked in. It would blow like crazy for 30 mins and repeat the 2hr cycle. Made it very uncomfortable for sleeping. The AC unit itself was very loud. Other fails were the peeling surface of the whirlpool tub, lack of daily variety in breakfast buffet - we were there for 9 days, it got old - fast; and most annoying the hot tub was out of commission for essentially our entire stay. It was one of the main reasons I booked this hotel. Overall, I would not give it any more than a 3 out of 5...mainly because of the cookies!!!

Penny J, 27 Septembre 2017

The hotel staff was very helpful, nice. The building is older, but pretty clean. The staff takes great pride in their hotel. Hotel is far enough away from SF, to enjoy the quietness, but close enough to get to SF within 40 minutes.

RTJ-CHICAGO, 26 Septembre 2017

Classy, pretty, convenient stay coming out of SF before traveling thru Sonoma and/or Napa. Great lobby, personnel, & rooms. Adjacent restaurant (with discount) has good food & ambiance - with a nice bar & sports on the tv's.

"When in the North Bay..."
Jamie A, 26 Septembre 2017

There are a number of reasons why I continue to stay here. The staff is friendly and very accommodating. The facility is clean and well maintained. The amenities are very good, from the complementary breakfast to the pool and exercise room. Located just off Highway 101, this hotel is a short drive to San Francisco, the beautiful Marin coast, Infineon Raceway and the Napa and Sonoma wine country.

"Best Hotel In Marin County"
Judy T, 23 Septembre 2017

I booked this room for my family to stay while they were in town and all the staff was amazing from the time I booked my reservation until my family left. They really made us all feel welcome. My family loved the beds and they all commented on the comfort of the pillows, the cleanliness of the hotel and the fantastic staff. Thank you all for your great service!

"Best Western Novato Oaks California"

The Best Western Novato Oaks Inn is the BEST, it truly feels like home to me. I would recommend everyone stay at this hotel whenever you have the opportunity. The Wild Fox restaurant is equally impressive.

it was a very nice hotel with excellent staff who were very helpful in any way possible, clean and comfortable will recommend friends who travel close to the same area.the location is close to shops and restaurants and hwy easy access to north or south 101 .

"Best Western at it's BEST"
Bonnie34990, 16 Septembre 2017

I do appreciate that hotels still offer toiletries . This observation is not directed at this hotel specifically but many hotels in general. I would like to suggest that Hotels consider ditching those little plastic shampoo/ conditioner bottles for an in shower mounted refillable option. With that off my chest here is my review.. My husband and I found this hotel (using trip advisor) after three of our flights were cancelled trying to return to Florida because of hurricane Irma. We Spent five days here and couldn't be happier with this hotel . Great location off route 101. Convenient to wine country, Sausalito (can fake a ferry into San Francisco from Sausalito) or drive to SF. The Wildfox restaurant is right next door . There is a Burger King across the street for the kids. Lots of restaurants around , including Terrapin Crossroads. This is a funky live music venue owned by Phil Lesh of the Grateful Dead for those deadheads out there. Staff are all very cheerful, helpful and professional. The front desk helped us find a very economical shuttle service when dollar rental ( that's a different story and review) fell short in their customer service. Clean room, comfortable beds and pillows. We stayed in room 4208 . This room had a microwave and refrigerator. Nice location with view of hillside ( literally) The breakfast area and pool were at the end of our hall. Still, it very quiet . They offered coffee for us early risers and warm cookies in the early evening . Yum. There are complimentary toiletries if you should run out. Well appointed continental breakfast ,IMHO, offering both cold and warm choices. There was something for everyone. The breakfast staff were friendly and took great care keeping the food/coffee plentiful and area clean . There is Pool, ( a bit cold for us Floridians lol) , ping pong , and a small fitness center we ventured to ( after feeling guilty about eating those warm cookies night after night). Free parking, Wifi and computer useage. Coin operated laundry service on premises. There are many hotels to choose from ,however, we found this hotel had everything we needed and highly recommend staying here. . Kudos Best Western Plus and the entire staff.

"Convenient location and spacious setup"
Christine P, 13 Septembre 2017

The rooms are well equipped and well priced and overall this a good quality Best Western also providing a pool and spa. You will need a car in this area as the local towns are a fair distance however there is a reasonable restaurant with a broad food offering and they include breakfast which is fairly comprehensive.

"Great hotel near everything you'd possibly want to get to"
Ahtrio, 13 Septembre 2017

We have family in the North Bay and the Novato Oaks is our go-to hotel when we visit. The amenities are great, the accommodations are exemplary and the location can't be beat. You're only a short drive to SF via the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, Stinson Beach, Petaluma, Sonoma Raceway, Sausalito, Marin Headlands, Mt. Tamalpais, Muir Beach, and the list goes on. Info/Tips: - looking to go for a run? Head up the hill and into the residential section. I promise, it'll be a workout worth doing. - toast, a restaurant across the highway in Novato, is worth visiting. - onsite restaurant is excellent.

"Great Place for an overnight!"
ellenmQ4344EA, 13 Septembre 2017

A Wonderful little place to stay between Healdsburg and the South Bay Area! Rooms were clean and very generous with the towel Service. Nice pool and spa area. The Wildfox Restaurant was Excellent, surprisingly great food.

"Great Experience"
Morse R, 13 Septembre 2017

We attend drag races in the area at least 5 times a year and stay at this Hotel when we do. Our first experience here several years back was a great one and has been every time since. We are treated with respect by a friendly competent staff. We feel welcome by all of the staff members, the rooms are clean and nice,the food is good, and the facility is always clean and nice.

"I used reviews of the hotel to book and I was not let down"
Dennis P, 12 Septembre 2017

Best reviewed hotel with the most reasonable rate on line the day we were booking. Breakfast was excellent and the room was comfortable. It is relatively close to the highway and can be some slight noise of your room is faced to the road. Nice porch off the room was a great place to relax.

"Great luxury feeling stay"
mytravelaccounts, 07 Septembre 2017

This hotel is in a great location approximately 20 to 30 min north of San Francisco. Its in a quiet area has a very nice fancy restaurant called the Wild Fox on site. We got to the hotel late and ate pizza at this restaurant and it was very good. The hotel is very large. The staff was very welcoming and polite when we checked in and out. I wish breakfast was more of a traditional style and the coffee they served was more of a medium instead of a dark. The Coffee was Starbucks though which was a nice touch just was not for me. For breakfast they served a egg cheese and ham souffle which was ok bacon or sausage would have been better I think. The waffles and yogurt were good. They also had cereal which I did not try. Over all this place was very nice. The hotel was clean. The room we stayed in was spacious, clean and the bed was comfortable. We would stay here again if we ever travel to San Francisco again.

"Great staff!"
v c, 06 Septembre 2017

This place is always nice! It feels very safe to stay. It had a nice little gym. There are lots of places to eat nearby. It is just over the freeway from shopping. Breakfast is Continental but happy that they are now offering soy milk for those of us that have trouble with regular milk. Parking is free. You have to request a microwave, but there hasn't been a time when I didn't have one for me. Nice day for the price in the area!

"comfortable room"
627farahs, 06 Septembre 2017

You can move around the room very easily. The bed sheets are clean and spotless. The pillows was good ad new. In my opinion the Price is too high. The breakfast is very simple. We find a piece of hair in the boiled eggs. The room was clean.The internet in the room was working well but not very fast.

"A Nice Hotel Option"

All was very nice except the coffee in the room was almost undrinkable. Staff was very friendly and available. The breakfast offered many nice options and the flavor of all was quite good. Public restrooms conveniently located and very clean.

"Beautiful accommodations"

To start off, I would be happy to stay at Best Western Plus Novato Oaks in every future visit to Marin County. It is easily accessible off US-101 at exit 458. The hotel is beautifully appointed with a waterfall and library and coffee nook right off the main lobby. The rooms are very fresh and clean and quite large: more like a suite than just a room! So there is a wow-factor as soon as you open the door. The bed, linens, and pillows are as comfortable as can be. The bathroom was sparkly clean and hot water was available instantly in the shower. A Keurig coffee maker and four K-cups were set up for the morning. The hotel consists of five buildings adjoined by a breezeway. Security is commendable as the buildings are accessible from the outside only with a room key. However, you can enter the complex at multiple locations from the parking lot, so you are never far from your room. The parking lot is large and even though they were busy over the weekend I stayed, there was always a convenient place to park. For nearby dining options, there is an upscale onsite restaurant (“Wildfox” – It received very good reviews from my family who live nearby though I did not sample it myself.) and a Burger King right across the street. My room had a large screen TV and a small refrigerator. I wish the room was also equipped with a microwave, but there was a microwave always available in the centrally-located breakfast room. There was little variability in the breakfast menu from day to day – sausage links and plain omelets were the hot protein options every day - but there were plenty of bread and pastry options, breakfast burritos, yogurts, hard-cooked eggs, a variety of good-quality cereals, oatmeal, Carbon® brand waffles, etc. And the food buffet was kept well-stocked by a hard-working and friendly gentleman. Just outside the breakfast room you will find the outdoor pool. The staff keeps it very clean and there are many tables and chairs to relax and enjoy the weather day or night. There is nothing to do in the immediate vicinity of the hotel but the easy access to US-101 and the hotel's proximity to San Rafael (6 miles), downtown Novato (5 miles), Petaluma (9 miles), the Golden Gate (20 miles), Sonoma and Napa wine countries (25 and 35 miles) make this a prime location to see the northern Bay area.

We had the best experience at this hotel and would recommend this Best Western for its location, comfort and beauty. Wonderful staff and just outside the big city was convenient for us on this trip. Very recommended!

"Surpassed expectations for family event"
abusymom, 28 Août 2017

10 family members stayed here for a weekend event. We all thought the rooms were roomy and comfortable, the hotel was attractive, and the continental breakfast very nice. The food at the Wildfox restaurant was excellent. Staff was pleasant and helpful and the fitness room had several aerobic machines and a good variety of other equipment. The machines were well maintained (not always the case with hotel gyms). If ever in Novato again this is where we would stay.

"best for family traveling"
chaeyunk2017, 27 Août 2017

We just stayed short one day. Good place for San Francisco travellers to find the cheaper lodge. I like the clean room and pool. The breakfast is simple but we had enough in the morning. We didn't use the pool due to timing, but it looks good.

"Most disgusting hotel in Novato and Bay Area."
F6367FJpaulap, 27 Août 2017

This was the worst hotel. The jetted rubs had hair and who know what coming from the jets. The plaster was falling off of the walls in the rib showers. There were live bugs in the clean towels. The halls had odors so bad they had to of been trying to hide other gross smells. The breakfast was started last as the employee finally showed up saying he slept in. One staff member asked me to move so he could get his own breakfast. The worst hotel ever and not worth the 250 per night ! Save your money and time! Go to a different hotel.

"An enjoyable stay"
masiec2017, 24 Août 2017

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay of 3 nights. Convenient location to visit all the neighboring towns and cities: San Rafael, San Anselmo, Sausalito, Mill Valley, Santa Rosa, etc. Helpful staff. Spacious, clean room with nice decor. Very comfy bed. Sufficient amenities in the room. Very good breakfast.

"Great Stay!"
jameslE4078EJ, 23 Août 2017

Comfortable quite room facing hillside with wildlife and great view. Staff very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was great. Hotel centrally located to have access to entire Marin County, coast and Napa/Sonoma County wine country.

"Clean, quiet room; convenient breakfast"
BusyBuzz2, 20 Août 2017

I stayed for two week nights. Kathy at the Front Desk was especially friendly and gracious when I called to let her know I am checking in especially late. Also, when I checked in, she greeted me with a sincere, bright smile... Having breakfast I can grab and go was convenient. Thank you!

"Nice hotel - I felt it was bit expensive compared to other Best Westerns we had stayed in"
LindaJabiru, 19 Août 2017

The BW Novato Oaks Inn stay was at the end of our 33 day trip through Oregon and northern California. We booked here because it was near where a friend we were visiting lived. Hotel was quite nice, but it was substantially more pricey than other Best Westerns we'd stayed in in the previous couple of weeks. It would have been nice to have a real coffee cup (not paper) and milk or UHT milk in the room rather than powdered coffee 'creamer' which is really corn syrup.

DiscoDarla, 14 Août 2017 rip off, call hotel direct better pricing. can't match because has to be done before u check in. Place very nice easy on and off. Half hour to San Francisco had great trip would stay again

"Excellent choice"
Joe P, 14 Août 2017

This is a beautiful hotel and was a great place for our family to stay. The staff was friendly and just about everything was perfect. The internet was quite slow and the rooms appeared to be numbered by a crazy person but you could find your room easily enough if you followed the signs (just don't expect to be able to guess your floor by your room number!)

"Great for business travel"
250randin, 13 Août 2017

Right off the freeway this hotel is remarkably quiet, clean and convenient. I mostly encountered business travelers like myself and some European vacationers. The dedicated restaurant "Wildfox" has excellent fare at reasonable prices with specials if you dine early.

"Great place to stay!"
susanfB2854QB, 10 Août 2017

The staff was friendly and helpful and the property is clean and well maintained. The rooms are very clean, a pleasure to come back to for rest and relaxation after a busy day. I would highly recommend this Best Western.

"Good hotel, for Novato"
Reed B, 09 Août 2017

The hotel is fine, for Novato. I appreciate being upgraded to room to the one directly above the lobby (forgot the number - sorry). All of your staff is very friendly and helpful. Two negatives - 1) used soap and soap dish, which was corrected by the front desk and 2) the jetted tub is ancient and looks filthy, even though it is probably not. The use of that tub, except as an oversize shower, was not going to happen. You need to replace that thing.

"Great place to stay in Marin"
teresabS680AV, 09 Août 2017

This is my go to hotel in Marin when I come to visit! Hotel rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. Staff is friendly and helpful. Great location in Marin for access to both southern Marin, SF and Wine country.

"August 6,2017"
Q3055TZdavide, 07 Août 2017

Great stay would return if in the area again! Staff was very efficient and helpful. Rooms were very clean and comfortable.The buffet breakfast had a variety of items including fresh fruit.the pool area was clean ans well kept.

"wedding party"
89marielc, 05 Août 2017

Loved the stay! We chose this hotel for our entire wedding party to stay at. As the bride, they upgraded my room as well so I had a great experience! Loved the bath with jets as well as bath salts in the room already. Very thoughtful. Our wedding party was pleased as well. However the general layout of the hotel was a little confusing, it was still a great stay. Thank you for being so nice to all of us!

"Great Hotel"
T3456TAjanetc, 03 Août 2017

I enjoyed my stay at Best Western...The staff was very friendly and the hotel was beatiful. The room was clean, beautifully decorated, I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast, great variety. The hotel was easy to find. i Highly recommend. I felt as though I was at Hyatt or Hilton.

"Quiet, Great Stay, Clean Hotel, Great Location to SF or Oakland Ca."
evalocke, 03 Août 2017

We have a very long drive. We arrive and were pleasantly surprised. The Hotel was conveniently located off of Highway, yet no loud noises. Really comfortable and nice Bedding. Clean. The Staff is amazing. This was a really nice stay. I came back the following month. This will be our secret stopping grounds for our travel to the wine Country, SF and Central Valley.

"Truly amazing!"
Y9644XJjamesl, 02 Août 2017

We loved our experience at this Hotel! We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit California! I don't know of anything that could have made this stay any better! We enjoyed their pool/spa as well, it was very clean and refreshing. The bed was so comfortable and the room was very cozy, warm and wonderful!

"I Want That Room!!!"
jamesrE3987JD, 02 Août 2017

I stay exclusively at Best Westerns. I have seen the mighty good and the mighty bad, all within the same general geographical location. I have never stayed at this Best Western but I walked to my truck saying "I will stay here again!" This is the ENTIRE PACKAGE! From the parking lot to the room and back to the parking lot and everything in between was OUTSTANDING. I had never stayed here due to it's price always being too high compared to other Best Westerns in the area. And price will be the only thing that prevents me from staying there again. This will be one of the first places I check when I have to go to the Bay Area. Yes I mentioned price several times. Well done with this Best Western! And man oh man, I am not a fashion guru, but I want my room to look like that at home!!!!!!!!!

"Wonderful Stay in Novato"
135shaes, 01 Août 2017

Amazing room service. Friendly, fast staff. Gorgeous lobby, rooms, and balcony views. The business center was easy to use and had free printing. Convenient location. Spacious room. Delicious breakfast included with MANY items to choose from.

"Nice, Clean Facility"
machete, 27 Juillet 2017

We stayed one night at this property and found it to be a very nice facility with clean comfortable rooms and a hillside view in back of motel. Rooms on the back side away from the freeway are quiet. It has a nice size, clean pool, but dinky little hot tub. (My only complaint). Continental breakfast was good with most of the usual selections plus eggs, sausage and waffles. In back of the pool area is a nice bar-b-que for customers' use and a ping pong table. I slept great in the comfortable bed with no aches at all in the morning, but the beds might be a bit too soft for some perhaps depending on preference. Shower was spotless and had good water pressure. The sink is adjacent to, but just outside of the bathroom which is a plus. The room was plenty big and had a spacious desk with chair, and an easy chair besides. Front desk staff was very friendly and personable. The price was very reasonable for Marin County and I would choose to stay here again for sure.

"Great Hotel"
A7035ABandyr, 24 Juillet 2017

Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. The main lobby was very nice with a lounge area. Pool area was very clean and roomy. The fitness center was one of the nicest I've seen at a best western. Overall a great hotel.

"Beautiful Property"
Stephanie C, 22 Juillet 2017

Stayed at this hotel in Novato for 10 nights on a business trip to the area. Very nice Best Western, beautiful grounds, excellent service, very nice rooms, very accommodating staff. The Wildfox restaurant next door is excellent. I would highly recommend this property.

"Nice place"
Susan S, 21 Juillet 2017

Conveniently located, appearance is very good. Clean with nice comfortable rooms. Pool and spa. Breakfast. Room was kind of strangely laid out. Refrigerator was not level, but kept things cold AND frozen. Coffee maker definitely needs to be upgraded. Very cheap and hard to fill without spilling water all over.

"The perfect value and the perfect staff"
Sean F, 19 Juillet 2017

Customer service is a lost practice these days. I can't seem to find anyone with motivation anymore when I travel. BUT... I can ALWAYS count on the BW Novato Oaks Inn to set the bar above and beyond. Their staff is amazing. Friendly, happy, on top of things, most of all, CARING! Easily the best value if you are in the Bay Area.

"Great place to stay"
Rotaroter, 18 Juillet 2017

I always stay there! Great breakfast and lovely pool set in California Oak trees with a wonderful restaurant next door. The parking is easy and is right off of a #101 exit. The staff is intelligent and friendly. The decor is pleasing and the rooms are always very clean with great sheets.

"Wedding Weekend"
jimcelia, 17 Juillet 2017

Rooms were clean, fairly large and nice. No bottled water but with Keurig coffee which was good. Wi-Fi ok. Not real special and over-priced just like all hotels in area. Nice pool area and free breakfast make up for a lot.

"Great hotel"
tomsocal2000, 17 Juillet 2017

I cannot say enough good things about BW. The appearance of exterior is very up to date. The front desk staff were superb. The room was clean, modern, quiet, and convenient. The pool area was much better than expected. Fire pit and barbecue a great plus w nice outdoor furniture. Will definitely return. Again, front desk was best I have seen in a long time

kathyv293, 17 Juillet 2017

The hotel is clean, staff is wonderful, a great place to stay! The pool is inviting and clean. The hotel is very quiet at night, and one can count on a good night sleep. If heading to Marin, this is the place to stay. A hidden gem in Novato.

"Unsatisfied "
Lisa T, 07 Juillet 2017

We stayed here on our road trip across California. I chose this location because it was close in proximity to San Francisco. The Good: Room was big Room was clean Location right off interstate The Neutral: Pool was nice Laundry Facility was nice (it closes at 9 pm, you cannot wash clothes after that) The Bad: It's noisy The parking lot is not big and there were big trucks and trailers taking up multiple spots The breakfast was not good, it was bad. But the gentleman staffing it was efficient and friendly. There was a spider in my bed (see pics) Summary: For $160.00 a night I would expect more. We paid less at other hotels along the way and had a better stay. When I showed front desk personnel the picture of the spider in my bed she said "oh that's not good it's that time of year." She then said other than the spider and the electricity being out for about 4 hours was the rest of my stay ok.

"One of the 'best' Best Western's!"
JohnnycatVancouver, 07 Juillet 2017

This hotel is wonderful, clean, spacious rooms, kind and friendly staff, great breakfast. I have stayed at many Best Western's and this was one of the best. We arrived very late at night after a trying and emotional day, staff greeted us with a great welcome and quickly got his checked in. As there was limited parking and I have a disability they let us stay in the 15 minute parking all night. Room had a balcony. We didn't get the chance to take in the pool but eat breakfast by it in the AM and it seemed lovely. Would recommend this hotel to anyone travelling along the 101 for a nice comfortable night.

jasperq2017, 07 Juillet 2017

Best BW ever stayed in would stay here again and would recommend it to everyone. Very accommodating and very friendly and helpful. All staff in the hotel were very helpful. Our room was great, location is very good no complaints

"Very nice hotel"
tamarag297, 06 Juillet 2017

This was a very nice hotel. It was clean, the rooms were a good size. and the breakfast was great. The location for us was very convenient. The staff was helpful. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub and firepit

"Convenient location/good amenities"
Judith A, 06 Juillet 2017

Comfortable rooms (get an executive room if you can). They have a very good breakfast selection, and there is a decent restaurant across the parking lot. The staff is friendly and wants to help. The free internet is above average. Pool area looks good, but I did not use it.

"Accessible and Enjoyable Family Weekend"
Judith B, 05 Juillet 2017

Truly accessible weekend; our family is already planning for a return visit! Our daughter is a wheelchair-user and the room for her and her assistant was perfect: separate queen beds, ample bathroom with roll-in shower. Weather was perfect for a swim, and the hotel has a battery-powered lift into and out of the lovely, clean and not too heavily chlorinated private-feeling pool. (Be sure to alert the hotel before your arrival so that the lift will be charged.) A family of deer was feeding on the oak-studded hillside above the pool. There is enough variety in the breakfast menu (see other reviews) so that we could have different breakfasts each day. The Wild Fox restaurant (on the premises) pureed our daughter's food as if it were part of their daily routine and everything was beautifully prepared and the menu carefully chosen and varied. Staff very accommodating and knowledgeable about the area.

"Review of hotel"
williamfm2015, 01 Juillet 2017

Super location, friendly staff, good room and nice restaurant next door. The location is convenient. Wi-Fi service was easy to use and no charge, which is i,portant to business travelers like me. Breakfast was also very good and the location of the eaing area was very calm and friendly. I would recommend this to all my friends. Not too far from SFO airport.

"Truly the Best"
Sig G, 01 Juillet 2017

This hotel is outstanding. Anytime I am in th Bay Area, I try to stay here. The staff are first class. The rooms are comfortable, clean and well appointed. The staff make you feel like a member of the family. They are always professional but never to busy to have a short conversation or a good laugh. Also, the surrounding area is beautiful.

"This is my favorite Best Western anywhere"
Philip F, 22 Juin 2017

This BW rivals most higher level hotels. As a frequent business traveler that also regards my company's cost of doing business, I have to decide sometimes between comfort and cost. Many times I stay at Best Western because the Hilton or IHG chain hotels are too expensive. But in this case, I stay here by choice. This is a great hotel in every way.

"An Exemplary Inn"
Jack H, 21 Juin 2017

Although the hotel was booked solidly the previous night, we were checked in four hours early, to the type of room we originally chose. The woman at the desk was friendly, humorous and personable, not to mention helpful in getting us shelter from the 100º weather. Our room was spacious, the beds comfortable, the air conditioning perfect, and every detail of the room was clean and in good repair. Our room was quiet and our second floor balcony private. Every staff member we encountered greeted us with apparent sincerity, and that felt great. The pool, which inexplicably isn't advertised, was sparkling clean, did not smell of chlorine and was just the right temperature. Breakfast was more than adequate, with a variety of good quality food. There is a walking trail in an open space preserve three minutes walk away.All this for a very modest price.

"Very Nice Hotel"
X4566EAcharlotteg, 21 Juin 2017

Beds were 5 star comfortable. Hotel was very clean. Complimentary breakfast offered so many options and was just as satisfying as upscale hotels like Embassy Suites or Marriott that offer full breakfasts. Really enjoyed our stay there.

"Friendly place to stay"
Jan R, 20 Juin 2017

Very comfortable accommodations; great staff; they really go out of their way to make your stay a wonderful experience; many places in the area to explore, both indoor and outdoor. The restaurant nearby serves up some very tasty dishes.

"One Nice Stay"
798bobf, 20 Juin 2017

This hotel is very nice. The moment I walked into the hotel, I felt that this is where I was meant to stay. The staff (from front desk staff to the folks cleaning the rooms) were friendly, courteous, and helpful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. In the future, should I travel this way, this would be the first place I would look to stay. The beds were comfortable, and the balcony was an added bonus. The breakfast buffet was nice.

"Great hotel"
nnaugelli, 15 Juin 2017

Very modern hotel. The rooms are very clean and nicely appointed. The breakfast was very good. The hotel staff was very helpful. Nice location near Hwy 101. The restaurant on the same property was good.

"Over the top customer service!"
cmstudebaker, 14 Juin 2017

I arrived late, after midnight, tired after working all day, flying in from Phoenix and then driving 45 minutes to the hotel from SFO and was greeted by an amazing, friendly woman who was so helpful. She directed me to my room and even called me soon afterwards to make sure I found it okay and told me about a wine event the next day in the lobby. Definitely top notch service. I highly recommend staying here.

"Get away"
G4100SWmarkb, 10 Juin 2017

We decided to get away for a couple days and relax, the room was nice but I was disappointed as I tried to access ITunes Store and was not able to as I intended on burning Cd's...I couldn't understand why I could access Netflix but not iTunes...

"Clean and convenient"
karenoZ1044SG, 05 Juin 2017

This hotel was clean and conveniently located by the freeway. The rooms were nice and quiet. There was ample parking and a pleasant staff. The breakfast was better than most. My only small complaint is that the hallways and common areas were not as well air conditioned as the rooms.

"Wedding in Northern California"
NovatoMinerva, 31 Mai 2017

We have stayed here quite often. The quality and the staff are always the best. The restaurant next door, the Wild Fox, is excellent and the Best Western gives you a 10 percent off coupon. We would highly recommend this hotel. Parking is free.

"Expected more"
U6006QZjeanh, 19 Mai 2017

Hotel was Ok - just average. I expected more from a Best Western Plus. Beds were average - no pillow top. Breakfast was good with multiple choices. Bakery goods were excellent. Location was very good. We went to Sonoma & Napa valley and this hotel was great for our starting points.

"Our favorite hotel"
300vanders, 17 Mai 2017

We drive to SF every week for medical appts.. We love to stay at this hotel. The rooms are great, the breakfast is very good and the parking is free!! Anyone that has stayed in SF knows what I'm talking about. 20-30 minute commute to SF (depending on traffic) which is totally worth it with the total savings!

"BW-Novato, CA"

This BW is in a great location with nice rooms, a few issues but overall I will stay again, good staff ! The air conditioning was an issue>>>>they need to make it so you can run fan to keep air moving ???

"Skip This Place"
RHJ, 09 Mai 2017

A/C didn't work properly. Road noise audible on highway side of hotel. "Fake Eggs" at breakfast. Bathroom/vanity spaces small. Bed needed replacing. Entire hotel needs updating. Elevator very small. Wouldn't stay here again.

"Great 1 night stay with family "
Sarah T, 08 Mai 2017

We had the double queen room with a balcony. The balcony was a good size and had basic furniture for use. We loved that the room had a small fridge to keep all our cold foods in after a day of travel in the ice chest. The room was clean and comfortable. Due to the amazing beautiful warm weather we got use out of the pool and hot tub. They have a fairly nice outdoor area here. After dinner at Wildfox (good food and just a walk across the parking lot) we sat around the gas fire pit also in the outdoor area. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Check in was super easy. Parking is free. Unfortunately we didn't have a chance to grab the free breakfast but it looked easy and convenient. This is a good comfortable place to stay and we'd stay here again. Pretty quick simple drive into San Francisco, depending on traffic of course.

"Clean and comfortable"
sparksnv2016, 06 Mai 2017

The design of the balcony allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the scenery without anyone else seeing us. It was a great addition to a very clean and comfortable room. Breakfast was the best we have eaten in a hotel. Great selection of healthy and just yummy. Every item was fresh and proper temp. Variety was outstanding. Egg, ham, and cheese cups were moist and very tasty.

"High School Reunion Nearby"
olblu92, 05 Mai 2017

Going to a high school reunion to be held at the Embassy Suites in San Rafael, about 10 minutes south of this BW. The attendees were supposed to get a special room rate at the reunion hotel. Three months in advance of the date, we tried to get the room at the special rate and we were told they were booked unless we booked two nights. Found the BW+ Novato Oaks Inn to be very accommodating and their room rate was lower than the unavailable special rate offered by Embassy. The BW was very pleasant, clean, and had a complete breakfast included. We would stay there again when in the area.

"nice hotel"
Luna912, 03 Mai 2017

Room was large King bed, desk, dresser, chair and ottoman. A little different bathroom layout but it actually worked well for 2 people. I thought it was a little over priced but isn't anything near San Francisco. The bed was comfortable but nearing an update. It's always nice to have a little breakfast available. It was better than average for this type of Hotel. Friendly people.

Rose H, 02 Mai 2017

Went to Novato for a family reunion and so glad we chose the Best Western for our two night stay. I will definitely be back. Great for families! Comfortable beds and slept like a baby. Great room layout and balcony to sit on and have coffee in the morning. The free breakfast in the morning was a plus. My kids enjoyed the pool and ping pong table as well.

"Great place to stay for short or extended stay"
Shelly W, 30 Avril 2017

I was part of a group that stayed at the hotel for 5 nights. It worked out perfectly and the hotel is very conveniently located, very clean and very comfortable. They have a great breakfast in the morning and it's setup early for early birds. I supplemented with some of my own groceries and it felt like I was right at home. The bed and pillows were also very comfortable and I never had a bad nights sleep. Would definitely stay again!

"Pleasant Surprise"
Monika W, 24 Avril 2017

I was genuinely worried when we first pulled up. It's an older hotel with a dated decor but it does not lack on quality. The room was nice and clean with a good cleaning crew the next morning. It was nice and quiet in our room and we enjoyed the balcony. The hotel breakfast was even more surprising with a great staff and fresh doughnuts every morning as well as great selection of yogurts and a make your own parfait station. Don't judge the book by it's cover... Great location if you plan to do Sonoma and San Francisco while traveling. It was nice to NOT be in the city with the option of traveling north to the wine country. Thank you Best Western.

"Excellent hotel and staff very helpful and friendly"
Jon A, 21 Avril 2017

A very nice hotel just North of San Francisco - but very close to Sausalido, Muir Woods and also just of the main 101 Highway The hotel looked nice and the staff were very friendly The rooms were bigger than you would get in San Francisco, and clean The attached restaurant was a pleasant change and well worth a visit

""THE BEST" of The Best Westerns Plus "
MarinCountyJohn, 20 Avril 2017

We recently stayed two nights at this exceptional Best Western Plus while we were moving out of our home in Novato to relocate to a new home in El Dorado Hills outside of Sacramento. Despite having to change our reservation just a day before, the front desk staff was extremely accommodating and was able to secure another reservation for us on a busy weekend. We unfortunately were not really able to enjoy all the facilities due to time restraints, but the room was extremely clean, the beds very comfortable and the only drawback we found was a slightly dated HVAC wall unit that was somewhat noisy. The complimentary breakfast had a wide assortment of choices, with just about anything you might enjoy for a quick bite including bakery fresh doughnuts and muffins in an impressive display case in its own separate area of the well spaced dining area. A very nice staff member was present even in the wee hours of the morning to assist in preparing our plates and answer any questions. Overall, this property easily earns its #1 ranking and would be hard to beat under any circumstances considering its value, extremely hospitable and friendly staff, prime location and a willingness to meet and exceed a guests every expectation. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely be staying again if the opportunity arises.

"So happy!"
Heidi M, 16 Avril 2017

What a great stay! Breakfast in the morning was way impressive for "hotel breakfast"! Safe and cozy! Perfect location to visit surrounding areas. Will be back and recommend! Thank you for being a great place with value.

"I'll be back!"
filomeli, 10 Avril 2017

This Best Western was awesome in every way. I wish I would have brought my bathing suit! The room was great with a great view of nature outside. The bed was super comfy with heaps of pillows! I had room service both nights i was there and the food from the Wild Fox was yummy and the people I dealt with all weekend either at the hotel or restaurant were awesome.

"Nice room/hotel."
Z5668LJericd, 10 Avril 2017

Novato Oaks Inn is consistently an excellent place to stay. It is without exception the best of the Best Western chain of motels.The Novato Oaks Inn has it all... clean, quite, friendly and efficient staff, great restaurant and bar, good location etc. etc.

"Very good with one small problem"
MARKIE ANNA P, 29 Mars 2017

A very nice property in Marin County north of San Francisco. Close to the freeway but the room was quiet. Large room with a large patio that had a table and two chairs. One of the cleanest rooms I've stayed in in our travels. Spotless. Decent breakfast with a large variety of things to chose from including eggs, sausage, waffles, breads, cereal and all manner of baked goodies.. If someone in your party loves doughnuts for breakfast, this is the place for you. Good lighting in the room if you like to read which is a nice change from many hotels these days so a plus for that. One gripe: the worst toilet paper I've ever run across in a hotel. Not a good way to save money in a property. Not everyone uses the gym or eats breakfast but everyone uses the TP! You can do better.

"Friendly staff and great place to stay"
Robert A, 24 Mars 2017

All the people are wonderful and the hotel overall is great. Central HVAC means either heat or cooling based on the season with limited control. Had to open patio door to regulate temp. In room refrigerator was a good freezer but both typical for hotels. Could have used an updated mattress but OK, sagged where too many have slept in the same spot

juliedoreenz, 28 Novembre 2016

Overall we were very dissatisfied. We were put up by the back entrance so we always heard the door slam when people were in and out. Our ac/heater unit rattled non-stop, our remote to our TV wasn't working and we had to turn our refrigerator on since it was turned off. Housekeeping was extremely loud throughout the halls at 8:20am laughing and talking very loud amongst themselves. More like cackling. It was very rude. I would never stay here again.

Our stay recently at the Best Western Plus Novato Oaks Inn was great. The room was the best, Best Western room we have ever had and we do stay at the Best Westerns a lot. It was a room right by the breakfast area and the swimming pool and hot tub. The view of the Mountains in Marin were beautiful and bucolic. The staff there was great, getting our bags to the room was easy with the elevator convenient. The staff there was as pleasant as they could be and all of the amenities were available and perfect. We were attending a concert at the Marin City Center Veteran's Memorial Hall. The location of the Inn was perfect and so easy to get to. The location is also close to great restaurants in Marin County. It was a great place to stay and we will go again when we are in this part of the Bay Area!

"Mattresses need to be revised / breakfast facilities are disappointing."
tomasb247, 26 Novembre 2016

In our case our mattress was a old model spring, not recent. The breakfast facilities are all throw away, the eggs look like plastic, the oat meal is raw, and you put boiling water yourself in a cardboard bowl.....

Hotel very very good. They do need a night light in the bathroom. Very dark the internet is very hard to get up on a computer. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Made for a great thanksgiving experience

"Best of Best Western"
Anthony K, 06 Novembre 2016

Really great layout and facilities. Easy on-off 101. We were in the Bay Area for a high school soccer playoff game. After the game in the city our rear car window was broken into. Lindsey at Novato Oaks went way above and beyond in helping us get the window taped over with plastic and helped us clean up the glass. She was so nice, we appreciated her help very much. I've stayed at Novato Oaks for business in the past. The hotel will be one of my first choices in the future as well. Great location and facilities. Ask for a room in the back if you don't want freeway noise, but he frontside rooms are fine too.

"Best Western - Novato"
Erica M, 02 Novembre 2016

Hotel is very convenient to Dominican University and also not far from San Francisco (via ferry or driving). Very close to wine country and other Marin County activities and restaurants. Staff and accommodations are always excellent and the price is always reasonable. The décor and quality of service and accommodations exceed other Best Westerns we have stayed at.

"Leisure fun"
Kendra M, 31 Octobre 2016

We have stayed at this hotel for 3 years now when a PRC race is going on and each time the staff is professional and friendly and the rooms clean. They provide a nice array for breakfast and check-in and check-out is a breeze.

"Convienient and Comfortable lodging in Novato"
Michelle D, 27 Octobre 2016

Easy to reach from Hwy 101, with clean, large, comfortable rooms. Convenient and substantial breakfast with easy checkout. Balcony off room was comfortable for coffee in the morning. Room was quiet and bed was comfortable for deep sleep.

"Clean and Friendly"
bds0423, 26 Octobre 2016

We stayed at the Novato Oaks Inn for three nights. The negatives first: not much of a view, mostly the highway or the hill right behind the hotel. Also, it's not a fancy or elegant hotel. However, the positives far outweigh the negatives. The staff is wonderful. Every person we encountered was friendly and could not have been more helpful. The rooms were very clean and the cleaning staff friendly and cooperative. Breakfast was plentiful and the fire pit behind the pool was nice and warm on a cool fall evening. We would return here mainly for the staff.

"Exceptional Hotel and Service!!"
Ian S, 21 Octobre 2016

Our daughter recently got married near the Best Western Plus Novato Oaks Inn and we had a big group staying at the hotel. The service was EXCEPTIONAL!!, the staff AMAZING!!, and the hotel itself was one of the most comfortable and beautiful!! We highly recommend this hotel, its surroundings, and most importantly its staff to anyone wanting to stay here!! Some of the best service ever experienced, and we travel a lot. Thank you for making us feel at home and for great experience!!

"Good place to stay in Northern California"
David L, 19 Octobre 2016

Good hotel, nice amenities. Pool and hot tub were nice, room was clean and spacious. Hotel is modern and nicely decorated as are the rooms. Breakfast is very lacking the just barely above juice and toast. Walls are very thin could hear the next room's telephone conversations.

"Nowhere better"
David B, 15 Octobre 2016

This is what a Best Western really is and others should take note of this place as it deserves its Plus status, we stayed for 4 nights and had a wonderful time there, the location was just right and the staff could not be better. We stayed here in 2012 and it is just the same and was just as expected. Young Travis who was on the front desk is now sales director (deservedly) and Michelle (Manager) greeted us with open arms and we felt as though we were at home.

Skip W, 12 Octobre 2016

Fantastic Hotel, very clean and fancy. The only draw back is the breakfast buffet. For a hotel like this the standards should reflect on the breakfast buffet. There are no scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon or sausage like other Best Westerns.

"Great Hotel Marred by Maintance issues"
Dennis M, 09 Octobre 2016

This is one of the best hotels I have tried this year. I liked the layout of the room and it was very clean. We stayed on the back side of the hotel as the front faces the hyway. This also gave us a nice pastoral view of the hillside meadow with oaks. I also liked that the tv offers the full channel lineup of Direct TV, including HBO and Showtime so we were able to stay caught up on our favorite shows. The only problem was the very noisy AC unit that would not generate any heat when needed. It was partly our fault to stay in the same room the second night as we never got around to reporting the problem. Staff would have been happy to give us another room, so I'm not dinging the hotel too much.

"Wonderful Hotel"
Robyn N, 03 Octobre 2016

I used this hotel for room blocks for my wedding, and they offered us a room to stay in. We had a suite with a jacuzzi tub. Very clean and spacious. We checked in very late but the staff was very accommodating and I had forgotten my wallet with the bridal party. They were able to get us checked in with no problems. Wonderful hotel.

"Great Place to stay"
Maggie M, 03 Octobre 2016

The hotel was a great place to stay. Rooms were nice, service and all. The complimentary breakfast they offer was very good. Like the added touch of lemon water and cookies at the front desk during the day.

"Great experience"
Carol L, 27 Septembre 2016

We stay here for family visits twice a year and are always happy with the courteous staff, the clean room, and the basic hot breakfast. This time, however, when I put the notice (and a tip!) on the bed to request clean sheets, it took a third day to actually get clean sheets! I guess the cleaning staff thought we would not notice. I will definitely complain next time because this never happened on other visits and I'm sure they would have corrected the issue if past service is any indicator.

"Excellent Experience in Novato"
James H, 26 Septembre 2016

Clean, Comfortoable beds, good Internet, quiet location, great service, decent breakfast. Hotel employees were great. Quick access to the freeway, but the rooms are quiet. There is really nothing at all to complain about. I'd definitely stay here again if I ever need to be in the Novato area.

"Wished we'd booked a room at the back."
Sue T, 21 Septembre 2016

Friendly welcome with staff who were helpful throughout our stay. We would have enjoyed the 2 day stay far more with a room at the back of the hotel. Our room had a lovely shaded balcony, but was at the front of the hotel, with the 101 freeway constantly roaring outside. The back of the hotel was against a hillside, was very quiet and some guests had seen deer and birds. We had a comfortable, rather soft bed, fridge, and complimentary coffee. We did have tea and a kettle provided when we asked.

"Great option in Sonoma"
Philip W, 19 Septembre 2016

I needed a place to stay for a quick business trip for a colleague and myself, and this hotel delivered! The rooms are very clean, they have a great, competent staff, and decent room-service food. I would stay here again for sure.

"big hotel but with a small hotel feel. Truly good place to stay"
CTPreview, 16 Septembre 2016

This is a Best Western with a difference. At least for me the difference is that this is a really good experience. Rooms are nice, access is easy, they accommodate dogs and the restaurant across the carpark (Wildfox) is spectacular.

"A must stay."
Edward H, 16 Septembre 2016

Wow! A beautiful property, well laid out and a great location. The pool and hot tub was a delight. We look forward to a return visit. Having the Wild Fox Rest. nearby is a bonus. Thanks to all staff at BW you made our visit a treat.

"BW Plus in Novato, CA"
Dennis W, 15 Septembre 2016

We very much enjoyed the 11 day stay at the BW Plus in Novato, CA. The evening desk staff was very personable and helpful in providing tips for area restaurants. We looked forward to the cookies offered after 7:00 pm. especially after a full day of hiking. The bed was probably the most comfortable motel bed we have slept in. We appreciate the in room refrigerator. The breakfast had a wide variety of items that even included Starbuck coffee. We certainly plan on returning to the BW Plus in Novato, CA in the future.

"Bring earplugs"
Olivier B, 11 Septembre 2016

Hotel itself is fine. Breakfast is your typical eat-somewhere-else crap with horrible coffee, worst pastries, but there are other places to go. The nearby restaurant (Wildfox) is absolutely awesome, but I'm not here to post a review for a restaurant, which is not in the same building as the hotel. Noise level from the freeway is too high, most of the rooms face directly towards it. Expect a noisy room if the hotel is operative above 50% capacity. By default, that's what they'll give you, and you'll ask to be transferred if you're smart. If you're not from around here, know this: 101 is ALWAYS busy: 24hr/day, 365 days/year. You will never get a break from traffic. It really would not take much to make this a lovely place to stay, but the average noise level is just too high to justify anything positive. At this price level, I would expect something much, much higher.

"A nice place to stay in the Sonoma"
JYCaryNC, 05 Septembre 2016

Next to 101, easy to get in and out. Very clean and cozy. Breakfast was on the simple size, not too many choices. There was a restaurant by the hotel but we did not use it. Novato and San Rafael were 10min driving and offer many good choices.

"Great location, kid friendly"
BWC0519, 03 Septembre 2016

Part of a special trip for 3 kids under 5, their parents and 1 grandparent; the Best Western staff very friendly and helpful. We had connecting rooms on same floor as the pool. Kids loved the pool and hot tub. Ate at their restaurant -- delicious food and patient,helpful wait staff. Breakfast next day a step above most breakfast buffets. Hotel was a convenient mid-point between Point Reyes where we spent the day and Sonoma.

"Completely Satisfied"
Mike S, 01 Septembre 2016

Every phase of our stay at the Best Western Novato was a delight. They rearranged rooms for us so we could check in early after driving all night. They supplied parking cones so we could park our truck and trailer together, gave is discount coupons for the restaurant, and gave us great local info for other places to eat. The room was great, the complementary breakfast was one of if not the best we have experienced. The check out was a breeze. We could not be more pleased.

"Nice hotel, friendly staff, decent breakfast"
Mr_Canoehead_Calgary, 31 Août 2016

I was here for a week for work. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating, making me feel at home after a long day on the road. The room was large, the beds comfortable and the breakfast was very good. This hotel is not inexpensive but I felt that I got my money's worth. Compared to downtown SanFran, it is a bargain. There is a shuttle available to get to businesses in Novato. The workout room is a bit lame, but that is about the only thing I can think of to complain about. I would definitely stay here again.

"Had a great stay"
liberrygal, 29 Août 2016

We had an awesome stay. We wanted to have a weekend getaway with our son but was having a hard time finding a hotel last minute in other popular areas like Napa and Sonoma. I came across the great reviews for this place and also selected it because I belong to their rewards program. The front desk staff were very warm and friendly. The building was nice. We took advantage of the pool, hot tub and ping pong table. The breakfast was great. I really appreciated nice touches such as the 24 hour Starbucks coffee in the lobby and fresh cookies in the evening. Love, love, this place for our "staycation". I would definitely come back again for a quick getaway.

"Beautiful hotel and helpful staff"
Carrie Y, 26 Août 2016

We loved our stay here! The lobby and the rooms are gorgeous. This is also a nice place to see wildlife. We saw deer and a family of quails right outside our window! This hotel is about 40 minutes from San Francisco (without traffic), which is where we spent most of our time. This hotel perfectly fit our needs and the staff were very kind and helpful. The pool area is lovely, and we got to watch a meteor shower from our seats at the fire pit.

"Nice Room, good staff and Bambi"
GenePP, 21 Août 2016

We were heading home from a visit in Sonoma and was looking for a hotel between Sonoma and San Fransisco and close to the Marin County Civic Center. The Best Western Plus Novato Oaks Inn was an excellent choice. The room was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. We decide to pick up some take out and just relax in our room. When we look out the window we saw some wild deer feeding just outside. Even the next day they were hanging around. Even if the deer were not there, I still would recommend the hotel. It was a great stay even if it was just one night.

"Wish I had more than one night to stay"
dunlin57, 19 Août 2016

My wife and I stayed here for a short overnight on a west coast road trip, but this hotel left me wishing we could have stayed there longer! It was a beautiful facility with very friendly front desk staff. Plus, it had 24-hour starbucks coffee available in the lobby, and very tasty cookies at check-in. We took our snack out to the beautiful backyard fire pit area, and for 7pm I was surprised that no one else was out enjoying the beautiful evening. We were even greeted by a handsome pair of California quail that passed through the garden terrace while we were enjoying the comfortable chairs. Our room was very spacious and had a nice view toward the bay from the balcony. The breakfast (including hot waffles) was good, if a little limited in selection, but it was really nice to be able to sit outside on the back patio again while we ate it. If we ever need to stay in the Novato area again, I'll definitely be looking to this property first.

"Good place to stay in Novato"
MaggieHenrietta, 19 Août 2016

There aren't a lot of places to stay in Novato. This is just off 101 with nothing except a Burger King around it. It is clean and has a nice pool. There are cookies at 7 pm. Breakfast is varied and free. There were little pre made omelets, waffles and burritos along with the usual offerings. Our room was in a separate building accessible through a breeze way. I'm not sure if there are rooms in the main building. Access to the building with rooms is with key only and access to the main building early morning and late at night is only with a key.

"Great Hotel"
Robert K, 17 Août 2016

Stayed 2 nights as a part of our bay area San Francisco vacation. This hotel was a pleasant surprise as we usually stay with Hilton. Location is approximately 1/2 hour from SF, give or take a few for traffic. Easy access to Muir Woods which was beautiful. Nice area. Facilities were very nice. Clean room, decent size pool, nice fire pit and standard breakfast with good selection. Only downside is pretty small hot tub. One of the great parts of this experience was check in. Judy checked us in. She is a great ambassador for this area as she gave many suggestions and pointed out places of interest. She was genuinely excited to help us out. Thank you Judy and keep up the good work Best Western Plus.

"good value in Marin"
Dick B, 12 Août 2016

Great room, accommodating staff-got early check-in,breakfast okay,compared to other places in Marin- which is expensive-great for the price,lots of space, good restaurant on property,good parking,good amenities.

"Novato Oaks Inn"
Rotaroter, 11 Août 2016

I love going there because I feel like a regular. It is easy parking. You can drive right up to the beautiful front door where you are greeted by a knowledgable receptionist. The rooms are large and well equipped with comfortable furniture. There is a large computer desk and good chair. I had a view of the oaks and another night a view of the pretty pool. The setting is lovely. I had trouble getting into my old version of internet; so, a young woman came up to help me at 11pm. She solved my problem. Everything was clean and new! I highly recommend it. The breakfast was huge, fresh and heathly.

"Delightful Staff in a Lovely Hotel"
April T, 07 Août 2016

The staff treat you as a valued member of their family. I have stayed here a few times and there has been no change in the high quality of customer service, the room cleanliness and comfort, and overall quality of the site.

"Great Hotel"
Stephen C, 30 Juillet 2016

Great place to stay with family on vacation. Nice hotel, well kept, great location. Can drive to Sonoma and Napa wine country or into the Bay Area. There is even a walking trail right behind the hotel!

"Great location/Awesome staff"
Marjorie P, 28 Juillet 2016

The entrance and lobby are beautiful and the staff are friendly and accommodating. Room was nice and clean, small fitness room, tasty continental breakfast choices and a great hiking trail directly behind hotel. No complaints.

"loved the warm cookies!!"
KRtravelmom, 27 Juillet 2016

We stayed here with a tour group. The ladies who worked at the front desk were very helpful and answered all my questions. There was lemon water and warm cookies at the front desk which were soooo yummy. There aren't very many restaurants around to choose from if you have to walk. Our room was large, quiet and the beds were comfortable. I would stay here again.

"Great staff, central location"
Julie G, 25 Juillet 2016

Staff was very friendly. We enjoyed visiting San Francisco from this very nice hotel. Nice, clean room. Don't like the air conditioner turning off while we sleep, but lots of hotels are turning to motion sensors now.

"Nothing exceptional"
Gordon K, 25 Juillet 2016

I have stayed in several name brand hotels in the past year and found this one to be average. Check in was average and the room was average for what I am used to. And I felt the price for what I received was exhorbatant.

"Beautiful and Welcoming"
Denise M, 25 Juillet 2016

Beautiful place with very warm and friendly staff. Judy was very helpful in always answering our questions. Breakfast was yummy. All the staff were professional. We would go back tomorrow if we could and just stay longer!

"Great Stay"
Samantha L Miss I, 24 Juillet 2016

The staff was very friendly and helpful even when I checked in around midnight. The stay was extremely comfortable and clean. All items in the room (Bed, TV, etc) were up to date and worked very well. They offer a great breakfast station with tons of options.

"Very clean, excellent staff, good on-site restaurant"
wrl44, 21 Juillet 2016

We stayed here for one evening in May 2016. The staff was extremely friendly as we checked in, the room clean and spacious, and there is a very good on-site restaurant - the Wildfox - that serves good food and has an enjoyable atmosphere.

"Great Location - Great Value"
R G, 20 Juillet 2016

You can't beat the location and value of this hotel. Close to the wine country, Point Reyes National Seashore and San Francisco, without all the traffic and congestion. The hotel itself is very clean and comfortable. Located below a hillside full of oak trees, you will often see deer grazing right behind the hotel. Staff are warm and personable. The free breakfast has plenty to offer before heading out on your adventures. The restaurant next door, "Wildfox", offers great food with large portions and reasonable prices.

"What helpful and kind staff - incredible! "
User, 13 Juillet 2016

We wanted to stay at BWP Novato last night and the hotel was completely booked - as was literally every other hotel in the region. But Nadia and Amanda were so helpful and service oriented - they helped us find a solution and in a very short time. We are very thankful and wanted to let BWP know how excellent their staff are!

"Pleasantly impressed!"
User, 09 Juillet 2016

We booked our one night stay last minute. Staff is friendly. Rooms and surrounding areas are clean. 2 queen bedrooms have plenty of space and a nice little deck. Free wifi, plenty of channels, nice basic pool with a "bonus" deck area of comfortable outdoor furniture, ping pong table, fire pit and bbqs. I wouldn't hesitate to bring my family again.

"wedding weekend"
anitanp, 09 Juillet 2016

Our daughter's wedding was July 3. Our party had reserved at least 35 rooms. The hotel was clean and inviting. The staff was friendly, incredibly helpful and personable. I brought "hotel bags" to be handed out and the front staff was accomodating. Our rooms were ready even early ( which met our needs for the festivities). The breakfast was fine and we were given a room to host our guests in. We couldn't ask for anything more. Wonderful service!

"Almost perfect"
phototheworld, 08 Juillet 2016

This is a very nicely appointed and well located place to stay. The desk and staff and the management are everything one could wish. The rooms are comfortable, clean and gracious. It's quiet and has a nice view out on the hill behind it. Not exactly a bargain price, but fair value. All this place needs is a better breakfast. The food is below its other standards -- and the mechanics of using the breakfast buffet are challenging to say the least. Most likely, we will continue to stay at the Novato Oaks for all the "pluses". The breakfast "minus" does not quite chase us away.

"Best Best Western Plus in which we've ever stayed"
Richard B, 07 Juillet 2016

This was like a spa getaway experience. We stayed two nights and really didn't want to leave. Unexpected highlights included: - Beautiful golden California hill outside our guest room window - Western scrub-jays foraging on the hill each morning - Starbuck Verona and Decaf Verona just the way we like it - Heated outdoor pool big enough to actually swim in even though a young family of 5 was enjoying it also - Great business center - Real spinner bike in fitness center - Lobby suitable for conversations with guests - Although spendy for a BW+, it was a real bargain for Marin County CA

"Our Spa Retreat On The Road"
Richard_StL, 06 Juillet 2016

This is our first stay and we'll return every year as we make our western loop road trip and we'll plan to stay two nights. 10 reasons why we feel refreshed and love this place. 10. Crown moulding in the rooms. 9. Really interesting art in the room and in the common areas 8. A TV that allowed me to plug in my Surface via HDMI cable 7. An in-room recycling bucket 6. A fine breakfast with two waffle makers and these little quiche cups that were wonderful. 5. A great fitness room with a real spinning bike and a multi-function resistence machine that even I could understand. 4. A great hot tub. 3. A pool you can actually swim in: two different directions. 2. Our west facing room looked out on a wooded California golden hill. Beautiful. Quiet. No one there except for two beautiful jays we haven't identified. 1. Walker: All the employees have been great, but Walker really impressed us. He fills the roll of general maintenance guy and utility infielder. He was everywhere our first night. In the parking lot, the lobby, the pool area. He was always doing his job and always looking to be helpful. Always looking for guests with questions. Deserves employee of the week/month/year and a bonus. Here's a helpful hint. I hope you'll reward me with a helpful vote on the review. Ask for a west facing room. You'll face away from the 101 and toward the beautiful golden hill and maybe a pair of jays you've never seen before.

"Another pleasant experience"
Judy G, 01 Juillet 2016

You arrive to friendly, informative staff and freshly baked cookies. Room nicely furnished and clean. Room provided basic convenience appliances. Restaurant short walk next door. Little to no freeway noise. Inviting pool w/spa. Enjoyed our stay.

"Very Nice"
Gail J, 29 Juin 2016

We found the hotel very clean and nicely decorated. The lobby was well appointed. Our room was a very nice size with a private balcony. The hotel was clean with a great staff and good customer service. We used the pool and it was very well kept up men working on keeping it clean and in good order. The free breakfast was better than you get at many places. My sister lives in Novato so we for sure would stay again.

"Great spot, good value"
Andrea N, 28 Juin 2016

We stayed here during our last trip to visit family in Novato. We loved having use of the pool. The rooms are a decent size, and clean. Breakfast is included (from what I remember), and it has some good variety. We are returning this upcoming August, so obviously a good experience overall.

"ok for business"
Susanne K, 27 Juin 2016

the free breakfast should not be used as a selling point by the hotel. the food quality was very cheap. for being right off of Hwy 101, it was incredibly quiet. the bed was comfortable I had a view of the hillside and heard birds tweeting in the morning. the restaurant across the parking lot was pretty good.

"Nice Stay Overall"
juvemeister, 24 Juin 2016

This hotel is a classy looking place just off the freeway between Petaluma and San Raphael. A BK and a restaurant are within walking distance, not much else. It's kind of an in-between sort of location. Plenty of parking and lots of inviting commons areas, including a great pool and business center. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and did a fine job of fulfilling our reservation requests. We stayed in an executive suite on the 3rd floor near the back of the property with a hillside view - Tranquil and roomy, with a mini-fridge & excellent complimentary wifi. The hallway, however, was very warm and smelled kind of like exhaust fumes. As comfortable as our room was, we found it difficult to keep the air fresh without turning on the AC, which in turn made it difficult to sleep. Can't comment on breakfast because we had to bug out early.

"Excellent choice for families"
Ernestina P, 24 Juin 2016

Chose Best Western Plus, mainly because of price and location. 6 people in my party. Needed more than one room, but could not afford to pay San Francisco prices. Family suite 2 bedbrooms, 3 beds, 2 bathroom was perfect. Only 30 minutes from Fisherman's Warf, just north of the golden gate. Got up, had continental breakfast, drove to Muir Woods, and Sausalito. Hotel is nicely decorated, beds comfortable.

Theresa P, 23 Juin 2016

I always have a lovely stay at this hotel. Everyone is helpful and friendly and the location is wonderful!!!!! When I lived in Marin, I always had my guests stay at this hotel. Everyone should try it. You are in the center of Marin and access is easy to wherever you want to be. Try it!

"Best place to stay in Novato"
Amy M, 21 Juin 2016

fantastic facilities and staff. laundry, free wifi, pool, hottub, restaurant/bar, pingpong table, room service. clean bathroom. wonderful experience. CheckIn staff friendly, informative, helpful. Quiet rooms; private corridor with key access only for those staying on the hall; kid-friendly!

"Great Weekend Spot"
Mika L, 20 Juin 2016

Stopped into this Best Western Plus for a weekend getaway and a wedding in the area. The amenities are great, fitness room and pool were spot on. The view is okay, part of it is a parking lot for the King Deluxe room we had with whirlpool. The room service was a nice addition from the restaurant which shares the same lot, great happy hour and they'll even deliver beer and wine. We were probably one of the younger couples there. There isn't a lot to do in Novato itself but it has good proximity to wine country. The staff was great and helpful. Will come back sometime.

"Friendly, Clean, Quiet, and Great Breakfast"
poem19girl, 17 Juin 2016

On our recent trip to the SF area, we stayed at another Best Western, at another hotel chain, and a B & B. Novato Oaks Inn was our favorite. It is clean, updated, and has large rooms which have mini-frigs. Our room had a large sink/vanity outside of the bathroom, which is nice when two people are trying to get ready in the morning. We got in late at night and a desk clerk (Nadia) rounded up a few snacks for us, so we didn't have to drive around looking for some place to eat. What a nice greeting. Our AC unit was noisy and they had a maintenance person there within 20 minutes to look at it. Breakfast was excellent and the man who worked there was helpful and friendly. As a matter of fact, everyone we came in contact with while we were there was professional, friendly, and made us feel welcome. They had some business meetings going during our stay and I could see why--it was a pleasant place. I would certainly chose to stay here again in the future.

"Clean, friendly"
lillie2003, 15 Juin 2016

I recommend this hotel. We were there for 2 nights and enjoyed it. It was clean and the staff is friendly. It's central location was great for our meeting that we were attending at the Pride Institute.

"Best Western Novato"
Ann S, 12 Juin 2016

So, the photos of the rooms on the website def. look a lot better then the room does. The hotel is in a close location just off of the highway. The hotel was nice. Nothing super fancy. There is a continental breakfast included.

"Third Stay June 2016"
BeenThereDoneThat946, 10 Juin 2016

Stayed for a week; 1st room assigned had a cigarette smell to it, although Best Western has no smoking rooms. The smoke could have been sucked in from the corridor draft or someone broke the rules. I brought up my displeasure and Sharon, at the front desk, made an immediate change. My next assigned room was clean and comfortable. I gave an overall grade of excellent due to the helpful and professional staff I experienced. Kathy, Sharon, Judy and Lynda were very helpful in everything I asked, they were professional and delivered with a smile. Kathy always had a chipper good morning when I passed the desk on my way to breakfast. Judy and Lynda helped extend my stay. I have owned a restaurant so I am very aware of the business employees where I visit and maybe observe more than the average person. I'm critical but also fair and consistent. The do have a microwave in the breakfast area, but I recommend one in the rooms. I also recommend a maintenance sheet where the guest can leave notes on things that need fixing like a very slow draining sink. The hotel can't know everything. A little on the expensive side relative to my stays in Washington State, but I can't compare similar places to stay here locally. Good location; off and on the major highway 101....about an 55 min to hour to Oakland airport. A........ grade for Desk Staff A ........ grade for Room A......... grade for Breakfast A .........grade for Professional Attitude

"Great place to stay!!!"
David C, 08 Juin 2016

Nice and clean hotel with friendly employees that went out of their way to make you feel at home. Great location with easy freeway access. Close to restaurants, shopping and other activities. We stayed for 4 weeks on a business trip and would highly recommend this particular hotel.

"Very Impressed"
Joan W B, 07 Juin 2016

This was my first stay at a Best Western and I was very impressed. The hotel had a pleasing decor and the staff was outstanding. The room was larger than most, with a nice desk area, and the beds were so comfortable! The breakfast was abundant with choices, and everything tasted great! The staff at the front desk were welcoming and helpful; the room was kept fresh and clean; the breakfast area was kept replenished and clean. I was there 12 days and it was perfect throughout the stay. I've stayed at over 5 various hotels this year and although some would be considered higher-end, this one was by far the best as far as service and quality.

"What a gem"
rhoward554, 07 Juin 2016

I made reservations the day before we arrived due to changes in our travel schedule. We were overjoyed with our choice: close to Interstate 101 but set back far enough to avoid the noise; very friendly and helpful staff; nice decor (reminded us of a boutique hotel near DC); excellent breakfast (one of the best we experienced); nice deck off the room; great swimming pool. Excellent quality restaurant next door to the hotel (filet steaks were superb).

"Hidden Oasis"
gdandcj, 06 Juin 2016

This out of the way hotel is in a quiet corner of property sitting on a hill where you can see deer roaming. Property and grounds are well taken care of and the beds are "heaven". The staff are very professional and courteous to al travelers.

"Always A Favorite"
traveler tales, 30 Mai 2016

Just got back from a stay at Novato Oaks. Such a peaceful and comfortable spot, so close to great exploration. We wound our way over to Point Reyes one day and up to Sonoma the next. Easy trip into SF from here too. Spring for a King Executive room, balcony is a nice way to end the day on a summer day. Breakfast is adequate, includes waffles and fresh donuts. Our favorite place is out by the pool (large, with hot tub and BBQ) or up at the fire pit meeting new people. Close to home getaway or home base during travels, you can't go wrong here.

"Best Western Plus Novato Oaks Inn"
Carol D, 30 Mai 2016

The staff at the Best Western Plus Novato Oaks is excellent and so friendly! Every time I stay they make sure my stay is perfect for me! The rooms are nicely decorated and always clean. The front desk is always friendly and helpful if you need something they make sure it is taken care of for you! I only stay at this hotel when I am in the bay area because of the service.

"Nice place!"
Lee R C, 27 Mai 2016

Stayed here for there nights while attending baseball games at AT&T and stadiums. The staff was great, free parking and breakfast. Rooms were clean, even saw a deer on the way to the room one morning.

"Great Location North of the Goldengate Bridge"
john j, 24 Mai 2016

Ok everyone,this is a great place to stay. The location is just off the 101 ,but the rooms are quiet. The rooms are clean,and modern,and set up nice. Breakfast is good and the selection is great. Parking is ample . I can go on and on but to save time go to there web site. I will stay there again, the rooms facing the highway are quiet, but the rooms facing the hill in the back are really quiet. Great staff . If you are traveling North on the 101 this is a good place to stay because you are on the North end of the morning traffic which is going the other way toward SanFrancisco. Oh eat at the Wildfox ,next door one of the better steak houses in the North BayArea.

"Very Accommodating"
Cheryl O, 23 Mai 2016

We were in town for a car shows and the staff was very accommodating for our truck and trailer. They coned off an area for us to park. We would recommend this hotel and we will be back next year for the same show.

"Good Choice"
Dwight R, 22 Mai 2016

Was a wonderful stay and very quite. Nice and pleasant staff and everything was very clean. Looked at reviews and drove out of our way to stay here. That was a good decision. Will certainly stay again!

"Great Place to Stay at a Great Value"
briandB6885LB, 21 Mai 2016

We spent 5 wonderful nights here. Novato is close to the City sights and features, as well as to other areas along the coast. The room was very comfortable, and the staff helpful and friendly. We'll definitely stay here again next time we're in town.

"Close to Hwy. 101 but nicely situated in a woodsy setting"
Y285PTrichardj, 18 Mai 2016

Hotel has very easy access to Hwy. 101, yet the hotel is situated in such a way that it blends nicely into the surrounding hillside. Plenty of parking provided. The breakfast area is spacious, with usual variety of items available. Seems like there are hiking trails nearby. It's nice that they also provide a shuttle to the Marin Airporter bus that can take you back to the SFO airport. Many nearby fine restaurants and shopping centers. When I visit Marin County again in the near future, I will definitely make this my first choice.

"nice place"
Charles P, 18 Mai 2016

We have stayed at the Novato Oaks Inn for the last 6-7 years. Our son and family live in Novato and when we visit either we stay or put up friends and family at this very clean and efficient place. The breakfast is very good and their service is excellent.

"Great for Business"
Nancy C, 17 Mai 2016

I always stay here when traveling on business to Novato. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Wifi is strong and reliable. Breakfast has plenty of healthy options and good coffee. After a long day at work, the preserve behind the hotel is a lovely hike. Don't miss it if you have the opportunity.

"Very Good!"
Yejee C, 16 Mai 2016

Very Good! Very clean, quiet. Reasonable price. Very friendly & professional staff members. Wonderful location (close to Sausalito & San Francisco). Two thumbs up. I will come back to this hotel. Very Very Very Very good! Very Good! Very clean, quiet. Reasonable price. Very friendly & professional staff members. Wonderful location (close to Sausalito & San Francisco). Two thumbs up. I will come back to this hotel. Very Very Very Very good!

"I expected better"
Gerald D, 16 Mai 2016

Nothing majorly wrong with this property, just little things like the breakfast was good one morning and not as good the 2nd. No padding on ironing board. Access was a bit tough when your carrying lots of luggage. Upload speed on internet was slow. Mattress not centered on foundation. Again nothing major but when your tossing out $200+ per night you expect the little things to be taken care of. Staff was good and the room clean.

"Outstanding hotel for the $$$"
Ken H, 10 Mai 2016

Great hotel, large and very well appointed, clean modern room, bath with double sink, and a great and very helpful staff. Only negative was that the restaurant would not allow me to do take-out for dinner. Parking was easy, and the hotel was well located to get to either San Rafael, plus it was a semi-easy commute to San Francisco.

"Fabulous Beds"
markkaren t, 10 Mai 2016

We were needing a place to stay for a few nights between Petaluma, and San Rafael. The rate was good, and it looked to be a nice facility. We had great service, The bed was fabulous, the room had a balcony with a view to the east hills. And it ended up only being about 5 min south from the San Rafael Northgate shopping if you need something, and 5 min north to a grocery store and mall. Also about 15 minutes to some nice wineries.

"Great Quality for Overnight Stay"
Gordon S, 09 Mai 2016

My wife and I stayed at the Best Western Novato Oaks for one night while wine tasting in the Sonoma Valley area. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Being a Premium Club member, we were afforded a room upgrade as one was available. The reception desk staff were very friendly and professional, the quality of our room was excellent, and the breakfast buffet was very nice way to start our day.

"We always choose this hotel when up here."
Tony K, 08 Mai 2016

The property is well maintained, the staff is so friendly/feels like family and the breakfast each morning is over the top. The BEST ! ! ! The parking area is close and they provide a drive up area where you can unload items onto a rolling cart for convenience and there is a side button on the entry to automatically open the lobby doors. Very nice place. We have relatives in Novato and always choose "The Oaks."

"Nice Nivato"
909Judith, 07 Mai 2016

A good hotel in a convenient location.. front of hotel has traffic noise. Good restaurant on the hotel site. Nice pool area. Very good breakfast buffet served from 6am until 10am . Helpful, friendly staff

"Nice hotel AND great for groups"
SpillyQ, 05 Mai 2016

I brought 90 people to stay here as part of a school trip to the SF area, and I could not have been happier with our experience. The manager Travis, and the front desk staff, were fantastic. As a trip leader, it can be stressful making sure that everything runs smoothly with such a large group, but Travis went above and beyond, was incredibly organized and followed through on everything we discussed. Our check-in process was streamlined and efficient, the rooms were great, our room blocks were well-placed, and the breakfast was just what we expected. I will definitely be bringing more groups here in the future!

"great experience"
David G, 02 Mai 2016

used ADA room with 93 year old mother in law. excellent service and amenities all around. already made plans to stay again at Christmas 2016. North bound entrance to 101 from hotel is a little tricky so ask at front desk

"Napa Valley Visit"
jimmymV9325IR, 01 Mai 2016

Professional and smiley staffs at front desk, quick grab and go breakfast, plenty of selections including StarBuck coffee. Room is little dark with all lights on and curtain wide opened. Price is fair for this hospitality at this location. Will definitely stay again and recommended to friends.

"Great hotel in an expensive area"
Philip F, 24 Avril 2016

This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting. I teach here several times a year and always enjoy both the setting and the friendly staff at this hotel. They were having computer problems with the credit card system when I arrived but one of the ladies helped me check in anyway as I needed to work on my presentation for the evening. They have a nice coffee bar in the lobby and an excellent breakfast with lots of selection. On the occasions when I have to leave very early in the morning before breakfast starts, they always offer to provide me with an early breakfast.

"Nicest Best Western We've ever stayed at"
Erica M, 21 Avril 2016

Nicest Best Western We've ever stayed at. Lobby decor was lovely. King Room with balcony, although facing parking lot, was very nice and private with trees. Location to Dominican University was excellent. Location to Marin County sights was excellent. Also not a bad drive to San Francisco or to the wine country. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good. Coffee was excellent. Rooms were clean, very roomy and beds were comfortable. Great value for the price. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.

"Love the Novato Oaks Inn!"
CHRIS F, 20 Avril 2016

We have stayed here many times, and it is consistently excellent. Delicious breakfast, considerate staff, terrific bed, and there is always lemon or cucumber infused ice water to fill my water bottle. We always recommend this hotel for people staying in Novato.

"Great Stay"
Elena C, 19 Avril 2016

Beautiful hotel! We stayed in a room with 2 double beds which had plenty of room. It had a fridge, microwave and a Keurig. I was very impressed with breakfast, which had: quiche, waffles, burritos, oatmeal with all of the fixings, juice, bagels, pastries, cereal, hard boiled eggs. yogurt, fruit, coffee, tea, hot chocolate and water.

"Much Better than the Typical Best Western"
Traveldudeworldwide, 18 Avril 2016

Great stay in the Best Western Plus. Comfortable bed, well furnished room, and quiet. I would highly recommend this hotel near to the 101 but still secluded. Well deserved very positive reviews. Good restaurants in the area and okay breakfast.

"The Best-Western Best Western in the Bay Area"
Patrick B, 18 Avril 2016

I've been staying at this particular BW since 2006, one and off through out the year for all of my work and pleasure at Sonoma Raceway. It's big, clean, has a great restaurant across the parking lot, the race track is literally 15 minutes away, and SF is about an hour away. The GGB is 30 minutes north. If you needed a place that was half way to the City and Wine Country, this is the place.

"Great Hotel"
Charles M, 18 Avril 2016

Love staying here on business trips. Great breakfast, hotel is clean, rooms are nice, staff is friendly, Wildfire restaurant is great, gym is great, pool is great and the poolside fire pit is really nice at night.

"Novato Paradise"
Chris H, 13 Avril 2016

The Novato Best Western is located off the main freeway where is it close enough to have accessibility, but not too close to create high road noise in the rooms. The beds in this hotel are simply outstanding, and you can be assured of a restful nights sleep. After that sleep you will be greeted by an excellent breakfast selection and courteous service from the hotel staff. A great place to stay.

"Very nice and clean but a little noisy"
alexus309, 11 Avril 2016

We were very impressed with this hotel for everything except noise level. It is immaculately clean, the front desk staff is friendly, and everything seemed to be just fine until we got to our room. Apparently the children in the room above us needed to work off some energy, but the noise coming through the ceiling from their running back and forth was quite dramatic. Then some people checked into the room next door and the sound coming through the walls was so audible we could have taken dictation and never missed a word. Apparently when this hotel was built they forgot to add sound deadening in the walls, ceilings, and floors. Otherwise it was great.

"Great place to stay"
Amber M, 05 Avril 2016

We were looking to stay somewhere in the area and I found this deal on Groupon for 2 nights. It was a great price, the hotel was very nice with clean rooms and one of the best continental breakfasts we've had. Hot tub and pool were very nice along with a cool firepit to sit by and pingpong table!

Ron G, 04 Avril 2016

This hotel was clean, the staff was accomadating, and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant connected was a little pricey, but the hotel is not too far from a mall where many different options are available for food. 10 minutes or so from the Golden Gate bridge

"Alwways excellent"
picksomething, 01 Avril 2016

We feel this is an unparalleled Best Western Plus for comfort, convenience, amenities and level of personal service, and this is our #1 choice when we visit the SF Bay Area in general and Marin County specifically.

"Traveling and Training Alone"
Michelle T, 30 Mars 2016

Wonderful place to stay if your traveling alone for a conference or training. I attended Marin Humane Society Training and had to attend training alone. No one else from my department could go. I felt very safe and well cared for while staying at this Best Western.

"Wonderful place to stay!"
Jennifer C, 29 Mars 2016

I enjoyed this hotel 12 years ago when visiting the SFO area and was pleased it was available for our stay this time as well! It is wonderfully located between the Redwood forests, beach areas, the city and Napa Valley. I felt very comfortable, safe and was pleased with the staff and the ammenities. I will DEFINITELY stay here when visitiing the San Francisco area in the future!

"Very, very nice!"
Debra H, 26 Mars 2016

This place was so nice! We really had never stayed at a Best Western that was this nice. The staff, especially Judy at the front desk, was VERY helpful and the room was amazing! We were kinda sad that our stay was so short! Will definitely stay here again when going into the city!

"I'm rating this as poor because of my experience at check in"
Kim S, 23 Mars 2016

The hotel, in general, is a nice hotel but I am extremely upset at what happened to me at check in. I was there for a memorial service, with reservations for over a month. At check in, I was informed that an earlier employee had let someone check into my room with no connection to my reservation. She had a totally different name but they gave my room to her and there were no more available rooms. They were calling around to other hotels and were actually going to make us go to another hotel when someone apparently canceled and we were given a room. They actually said we were "lucky" that something became available. As if we weren't under enough stress already. I have stayed in hundreds of hotels and have never had this happen. I'm still questioning how someone can check into a room with a different ID, address, phone number and credit card than that with which the reservation was made. Extremely stressful and made us late for that evening's service.

"Celebration of Life"
donna d, 22 Mars 2016

Was in town for my husband's Celebration of Life, the venue recommended this and there were a total of 7 rooms rented. Everyone enjoyed their stay, the location was perfect - would highly recommend stay here.

"Best choice"
Luann J, 14 Mars 2016

While visiting family we have stayed at other places but found Best Western Plus to be the best and most comfortable. Everyone is so happy and helpful. We'll be back again very soon. The location is perfect for our needs.

"A little disappointed"
smokymtndeb, 12 Mars 2016

I had read all of the terrific reviews before I booked this room. I was a little let down when I got there. Check in was weird, it was almost as though I had walked in on the middle of something. When I was bringing my suitcase in after check in, the girls opened the door automatically for me and the door pushed me off of the step, the door opens out. OK, accidents happen and they were trying to be nice. My room faced the back of the property. My view were some weeds and a chain link fence for the pool. The room itself was OK. Clean, small, but comfortable. The bed was OK. Breakfast was OK.

"friendly and clean"
Michael F, 10 Mars 2016

friendly and clean. comfortable. easy to get to. staff is excellent and nice. we got in late due to plane delays and front desk allowed us to leave our car in the short term parking since we were leaving for the business course early the next morning. location was convenient to Pride Institute. it was quite. didn't get to use the pool due to all the rain. nearby restaurant was nice but didn't have chance to try it. highly recommend to stay there.

"Best Hotel Experience"
Michael O, 08 Mars 2016

We were extremely impressed with this hotel. We were there for a week and not once did we experience a staff member who was not friendly and helpful. Always greeted us with a smile and a hello. The hotel was very clean and a nice breakfast with many choices. We have family living in Novato and we are so happy to have found a place to stay that meets our standards and gives us opportunity to be with our family and not underfoot. Keep up the good work!

"Felt like home"
Mike L, 07 Mars 2016

I was very impressed with the decor and the overall experience. The rooms felt like a luxury home and were very cozy, which I find unusual for most hotels. I loved the balcony with the beautiful lush views. I look forward to booking again soon I hope!

"Up on a hill, close to Highway 101, quiet"
steve s, 01 Mars 2016

Always a nice hotel. Friendly staff, clean rooms, very nice breakfast with many choices, affordable. While it is close to H101, the room is quiet. Bed very comfortable. Our first floor room even had a nice patio with chairs. Coffee maker is a Keurig, coffee too. They have Starbucks coffee always available.

"Beyond Expections"
Amy Q, 29 Février 2016

I truly enjoyed my time spent at Best Western, the pictures didn't do the hotel justice. The staff was very inviting and accommodating. The room was very clean and smelled fresh. The bed was beyond comfortable, like sleeping on a cloud. The bathroom was super clean and the shower's water pressure was perfect. Overall, the best hotel experience I have had.

"Nice relaxing place"
Randall A, 28 Février 2016

We really enjoyed our stay at Novato Oaks Inn! A very pleasant atmosphere, nice hot tub and great breakfast choices.The staff were very nice and professional. They did everything they could to make sure our stay was a very good one.

"Comfy & convenient en route to Napa Valley"
tulipe57, 26 Février 2016

Our flight was late into SFO and we were headed to Napa Valley. This was a very comfortable and convenient place to stay along Highway 101 on the way to Napa Valley. We took advantage of the restaurant Happy Hour and had a great dinner. Rooms were attractive and the bed was comfy. Breakast provided lots of healthy & tasty options. Easy & enjoyable stay.

"Best Western Navato"
Tom S, 22 Février 2016

This was a great hotel with a great staff. The batteries on the television remote were bad, which made it hard to turn the television on and off and change the channels, but that was the only drawback.

"Good night sleep in Novato"
Christina L A, 21 Février 2016

Was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this Best Western in Novato. Clean room, easy check-in/out, nice staff. Will check-out fitness room next time. May recommend this as an option for budget conscious Sonoma visitors - it's further away (another 30-40 min to the first winery) but should be considered.

"Excellent choice"
James K, 20 Février 2016

Only stayed one night but was very satisfied with hotel. Very clean and good location for visiting wine country and San Francisco. Excellent presentation of complimentary breakfast. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

"Great stay"
William F, 19 Février 2016

Meets/exceeds high expectations every time I stay at this hotel. The restaurant next door has great food and a great bar with friendly local folks. I've stayed at this hotel many times and will continue to do so in the future.

"Good Location and Accommodations"
scoutsterkc, 18 Février 2016

We stayed several nights at BW+ Novato Oaks for our recent visit to the Bay Area. Location is nice with very easy access to hwy. 101; unfortunately, this meant there was a bit of road noise in our street-facing balcony room. Aside from the road noise, we didn't hear anything from neighboring rooms (unsure if they were occupied). The balcony looked out onto trees and was quite lovely. The hotel itself is broken up into several different buildings, and I think building 1 (where our room was) may be the oldest. The hallways leading to our room—and the room itself, unfortunately—smelled rather musty upon each initial entry. Even so, everything was tidy and it's easy to see that the proprietors have taken great care in updating furnishings and decor so it appeals to contemporary sensibilities. Moreover, the room featured plenty of charging ports/plug-ins, which is convenient and surprisingly lacking in many mid-range hotels. I wish there was a rating between Average and Very Good, because I think that's where this hotel would fall. Friendly staff, nice breakfast spread, comfortable accommodations and convenient location make it a solid choice, especially if you can get a deal on a travel site. Still, I think we would thoroughly explore other options before staying here again.

"Excellent hotel and great area to have a vacation!"
Deb J, 17 Février 2016

This hotel was really beautifully clean, the employees were both friendly and helpful. We found the bed to be incredibly comfortable and it had plenty of pillows, which I love.The in room Keurig was an added bonus! There are numerous restaurants and grocery stores very conveniently located near the hotel also.

"The best value for your dollar!"
Kent T, 17 Février 2016

This hotel was beautiful! The staff was kind and attentive. Each room had a terrace with a table and chairs. The breakfast buffet (included) was fresh and tasty. I would have loved to spend a week there! There is also a beautiful walking trail behind the building I highly recommend!

"Great all around Hotel"
Garth C, 16 Février 2016

The Novado Oaks Inn Best Western provides a great value and has top notch staff to support what I consider a beautifully perfect stay. Clean, neat and continental breakfast like none other. the staff go far out of their way to ensure a pleasant stay. Parking is easy and close to rooms. My kids really enjoyed the Deer that graze just feet from the hotel.

"Good place to stay"
Marjorie W, 16 Février 2016

We wanted a place to stay on the way to Sonoma. The front desk staff was friendly. The room was clean and comfortable and very quiet. No a/c cutting on and off. There was a continental breakfast. I felt like they went the extra step by adding lots of choices. Everything from an oatmeal topping bar to make your own waffles. There was an outdoor pool, that we did not use, but looked nice. Next to a restaurant, the Foxfire, which I would also recommend. And a Burger King, if that is your need too.

"Last Minute"
Jake G, 12 Février 2016

Pleasantly surprised at being able to book a room so last minute. I was on the 3rd level with a balcony that looked over the hills and I could see some of the Bay. Due to the circumstances of my stay, i was relieved to be in such a nice place. Staff was great. Definitely recommend.

"Don't stay here if you want a good nights sleep"
Rose T, 11 Février 2016

We stayed here with some friends and no one slept very well. We got a "family suite" which would have been great for our family except they gave us the loudest room in the hotel. We were up all night, it sounded like someone was playing music or a very loud TV in our room. Beds were blown out and the room felt a little dirty. I would never stay here again.

"Terrific Accommodations, Friendly Staff"
David S, 09 Février 2016

Novato Oaks is a regular destination when visiting San Francisco and Marin County. I've been staying there on travel and business for over ten years, and the experience is always delightful. The rooms and amenities are first rate, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. The free breakfast is a perk; it's not gourmet food but it's filling. Easy freeway access, and a fabulous restaurant across the parking lot.

"Amazing place for a hotel"
Judy C, 05 Février 2016

My best friend and I went to the Wildfox for dinner and decided to stay at this hotel that evening. What a pleasant surprise when we checked in. The staff were sooo friendly and courteous. The room was large and the amenities were nice. The lobby is very airy. The breakfast was really quite good. They even had a hot egg dish along with bagels, etc. The coffee was quite good too.

"Nice and Close"
TeresaL509, 01 Février 2016

We gave baby shower this past weekend in Novato at Wildfox restaurant. We are not from the area and needed a place to stay that was near by. Novato Oaks was within walking distance to the restaurant and made it so easy and convenient. We used the conference room to do our flower arranging and that was a real bonus! We will stay here again after the baby arrives.

"Beautiful Hotel, reasonable price in expensive area"
Philip F, 30 Janvier 2016

This is the first time I have taught in Novato so I had to find a suitable lodging. Though I often stay in Best Western, the quality is sometimes variable, but this one was so outstandingly good that I feel the need to give them the positive review they have earned. For the bay area, the price on the hotel was on the lower side, yet the hotel is of excellent quality. I was especially impressed that the desk staff told me they were starting breakfast at 4:00am for certain guests that were leaving early. Though my wife and I only took a banana and and apple on our way out, I was very impressed with the accommodation they were making. The room was lovely, the Keurig machine in the room was a very nice touch for a coffee lover like me, and the pillows were very comfy. I can honestly say this is the nicest Best Western I have stayed at ever. The only other thing I could have wished for is a plug-in for my Chevy Volt.

"Nice hotel"
Laci M, 25 Janvier 2016

Nice hotel, staff and accommodations! Loved that there was a restaurant attached for cocktails. The continental breakfast was a nice bonus. The bed was comfortable, the room was spacious and the patio was a plus.

"Best of the Best Western Inns"
David J, 24 Janvier 2016

The service, food, quality of rooms, location are excellent. I have selected this accommodation over all the others in the area. I have regular need for a room because of a business interest in the area. Before using the Best Western Novato Oaks Inn, I was directed to other accommodations in the area. They do not compare.

"A consistently excellent experience"
picksomething, 23 Janvier 2016

This Best Western Plus property is excellent -- well managed, comfortable, wonderful employees, great breakfast, convenient to freeway without the noise (nestled against the hillside), lovely pool and relaxation area, and even has a reading nook with a small library. Adjacent to the hotel there is a very nice restaurant with good food and vibrant bar area. This is a definite PLUS hotel and we feel should even be rated a notch higher.

"Family Vacation"
Katrina H, 03 Janvier 2016

We stayed at the Best Western Novato Oaks over the holidays while visiting family. The service and quality were exceptional for the price. We reserved two rooms by phone and the staff person I spoke with made sure they connected and were the rooms we wanted. This is a great hotel for families but is one I'd also stay in for business or traveling as a couple. The hotel was quiet even on New Year's Eve. Breakfast had enough variety to meet all our needs. The highlight was asking for hiking ideas and they front desk had a stack of hiking books for us to look through and photocopied a page for us to take with us. Higher end hotels often can't provide that level of service.

"Novato Stay"
Erick R, 02 Janvier 2016

The hotel had more character because of the designer of the facility, Frank Lloyd Wright. It was tucked away just off the freeway but very clean hotel. The breakfast could use some additional options but it was free with our stay.

"Nice Stay"
Deborah C, 29 Décembre 2015

The Novato Oaks is a nice comfortable hotel. We were coming back after moving from the area and I wanted to stay close to the highway for easy access. The hotel is clean, staff is helpful and I always like Wildfox the restaurant on the property. Would recommend if you need to come to Novato.

"Great stop"
kfwarren, 27 Décembre 2015

Flight from Dallas to San Francisco early in the morning and a nice day with a friend. Driving North to Napa (long day & very tired) & this was a great stop : good restaurant next door, beds are comfortable, staff is very nice. All around... very comfortable. Daughter (5yo) got to pick a gift from a basket. Breakfast in a.m. was tasty. Hit the spot in the tummy & the pocket book (free). They could use more tables. It was so full we had to eat in our room. Automatic double doors at front entrance were nice especially with loaded arms.

"Always Our Choice"
coquilts, 22 Décembre 2015

We have family in the area and we always stay at the Novato Oaks Inn when we visit. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean. Complimentary breakfast has nice choices and there is always coffee for guests in the lobby. The real plus to it all is the adjoining restaurant Wild Fox. Food is very good and the bar/lounge is small but cozy. One can also eat outside in the patio where there is a fireplace for chilly evenings.

"Convenient & Comfy"
CMC_03, 21 Décembre 2015

My husband and I have stayed here several times and always enjoy it. The rooms are spacious, beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly and efficient. Love that there is a hot tub & pool. Breakfast is pretty good and there is always coffee & tea available in the lobby. Easy on and off the 101 & 20 minutes or so to San Francisco depending on which part of the city you are going to. My only complaint is the inconsistent temperature of the room. It's hard to maintain this so it's either too hot or too cold and the air-conditioning blows on the person closest to the A/C. Other than that it's a really great great place to stay and the Wildfox restaurant next door is delish. You can get room service but they tack on an extra fee for delivery plus gratuity.

"Very friendly and clean"
Melynda B, 21 Décembre 2015

Staff was great with helping surprise my husband with his b-day card and cake being in the room before us. They also gave us a free bottle of wine and chocolates. The jetted bathtub was awesome and loved having the room we did because we didn't share walls with anyone

"Best of the Best Westerns"
Steve L, 18 Décembre 2015

This Best western is my favorite and stands out in this chain of hotels...location wise and overall quality is exceptional. Fair prices also...the Wildfox is a great restaurant right next door. I stay here often and will be back!

"Conventiently located, comfortable, and good service"
Untame, 15 Décembre 2015

The staff was very hospitable. The room was clean and comfortable. The restaurant next door (associated with the hotel) was delicious, but beware if you order room service -- there is a $5 service fee PLUS a 20% gratuity automatically added to the bill! I was glad they had a hot tub. The fire ring and ping pong table on the patio were an added bonus. Also, for some reason LARGE buck deer like to walk around in the back yard -- that was interesting. Breakfast was tasty (including the fresh donuts made locally), but the balcony where breakfast was served was always hot. They advertised complimentary toiletries on cards in the room, but then I was charged $4 for dental floss. Go figure.

"Decent room"
Karen D, 12 Décembre 2015

Room met expectations. Night check in person could have better interpersonal skills. Location easy to access. Plenty of towels in room. Breakfast was good. The following is just to meet the 200 character linit.

"Like being at home - comfy and cozy"
R3915ERpamelas, 23 Novembre 2015

Our stay was only two days and we were literally a stone's throw from our own house; but it was like being on vacation. Great staff! Great restaurant. Just a great stay! Beds are super comfy - beautiful spa and amenities. Good breakfast and the room service was quick!

"Love novato oaks"
Donald M, 20 Novembre 2015

awesome, my kids beg me to take them there. They love the pool and ping pong table, also great continental breakfast. Always clean and great rooms that are very accommodating to our family of 5. We visit this hotel 5- 10 times a year just to get away from the house once in awhile for fun.

Kristi K, 19 Novembre 2015

Antiquated ventilation system in rooms. We were either FREEZING or SWEATING. Probably got up about 3-4 times each night to lower or increase air flow. The vent is next to the bed, so it blows directly on the person sleeping nearest it. Be forewarned, the bar attached to the hotel DOES NOT OFFER half price drinks during happy hour, like the front desk clerk informed us. They only offer half price well drinks, beer and wine. We found this out the hard way. $20 for 2 drinks at happy hour! Welcome to Novato. Bed was comfortable, room was clean, breakfast was acceptable.

"Very comfortable stay."
Diane S, 18 Novembre 2015

My room was on the 3rd floor backing up to the hill. When I looked out my window in the morning there were 3 deer - just outside! A nice way to wake up! Breakfast was ok, bad coffee - but acceptable all In all. Good location, clean rooms and great staff.

Craig G, 17 Novembre 2015

This hotel is very clean and was a great value for the price. The staff is friendly and was always asking if we needed anything. The room were spacious and the beds were comfortable. If given the opportunity, I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

"Family Trip"
Robert D, 15 Novembre 2015

Great location for trips into SF, Napa, and Marin. Good local amenities; shopping, restaurants, and parks all nearby. Convenient restaurant immediately adjoining the hotel was great for a drink and a late dinner.

"Excellent Stay"
Nancy G, 14 Novembre 2015

The staff was very friendly and kind as well as informative on the area. The night fire pit by the pool and cookies completed our day. The location was right off the highway and easy to locate. Our room was relaxing and the we fell right to sleep for the night. Breakfast was delicious and there was plenty of options to choose from. We would recommend Best Western Plus Novato oaks inn in Novato to anyone looking for a good night sleep out of town.

"Superior Staff"
Mckenzi T, 14 Novembre 2015

Loved everything about this place. I was here for business and it was a fitting location near Sonoma that I needed. Judy was exceptional at telling us a few insider tips and even recommended a nearby running trail for a quick morning run for me. Clean, friendly staff, great breakfast and pretty decor... what else could you ask for in a stay?

"Absolutely Amazing"
Shelly A, 13 Novembre 2015

We stayed here with friends and family after our wedding last weekend. The staff is very warm and inviting. The rooms are extremely clean and beds are comfortable. We were greeted with small gifts for the kids, fresh baked cookies in the evening, and a small wedding gift in our room upon arrival. From the moment we contacted the Best Western to request a room block until the time we checked out, we couldn't have asked for better service. We enjoyed a few drinks at the restaurant across the parking lot before relaxing by the fire pit while the kids swam until about 10:00pm. Everyone who stayed at the hotel with us was equally impressed. We will definitely return!

"Verg good Hotel"
Ruth D, 12 Novembre 2015

We stayed here twice, once at the beginning of our trip and at the end. The first stay was pre booked the second not, however because we enjoyed our first stay so much we had no problems in rebooking. Reception staff are very helpful, professional and had good attention to customer service detail. We were able to print and download information at the business section which was very useful. There is also a guest laundry which was very welcome. The rooms were cleaned to a high standard and the bed incredibly comfortable. Everything worked as it should and the wifi was fast and reliable. This hotel is also located just off the main freeway so very easy to find. We will be back!

"Looks Good, But ..."
mrliterature, 11 Novembre 2015

I really thought that this was going to be a great hotel. The location, off 101 is great and the photos looked nice. What I found, however, in my opinion, was a different story. I thought the rooms we had were dated, although there was an attempt at updating them. The first room we had smelled to us of smoke, and the room fragrance used to cover up the smoke. After an effort to see if we could tolerate it, we asked for another. After some 'whining' they did give us another room, but when I went to the front desk to get the new key hostess was friendly and also smelled of too much alcohol, it seemed to me. Our second room was tolerable, but little more. Then the next morning our room was not made up by house cleaning. It was just left as it was, towels on the floor, bed unmade. It was like they skipped it. For the cost of this room, I won't go back.

"Hotel Stay"
Jeammie M, 10 Novembre 2015

Very close with my daughter living in Novato. The property is very clean and there is a restaurant close by. This is one of the best Best Western I stayed in the one in Fremont,Ca which was next to a hospital that family was in and it was terrible. Dirty and in a bad area!!!

"Great Place to stay"
Marcia S, 09 Novembre 2015

Very cosy, the restaurant was very good. Free breakfast was horrible. not worth eating. Looks very pretty from the outside and lobby was nice. Clean very clean bathrooms and rooms and beds are good quality. My only complaint was the breakfast.

"Pleasant stay due to cordial staff"
donl60, 02 Novembre 2015

This hotel seems to offer good value, considering its high-cost environment. It's close to a variety of major attractions, and the staff were as friendly, attentive, and helpful as any I've encountered at a hotel. Continental breakfast included a nice variety of options, hot and cold. Minor negatives: there was a lack of towel hangers at the sink, and the in-room cooling unit seemed inadequate to lower the room temperature to my comfort without running it next to me all night.

"Solid, but could not find the "Plus""
JoachimG, 01 Novembre 2015

I stayed for three nights. The rooms are standart, washbasin incorporated in the room. Check in personal friendly and helpful. Changed my room from facing the 101 to facing the backyard. This is much quiter. Breakfast absolut standart. Lots of plastic all around. Lobby offers free coffee. Wifi is fast. As I said, could not find the Plus here. Stayed in other BW Plus and they are much better. Nothing wrong here. Pool area is quite nice.

"An unexpected surprise"
Samuel S, 28 Octobre 2015

The Best Western Novato Oaks Inn is a top-flight, well managed, and overall meticulously kept facility. The staff is well trained, caring, and eager to help guests. The rooms are nicely appointed, and the facility is in excellent condiditon.

"I'll be back!"
Mike H, 27 Octobre 2015

Great place to stay and relax. The lobby, business center and little library were great places to hang out in the early morning (being on East Coast Time). We enjoyed the quiet swimming pool on the backside of the hotel. The breakfast buffet was super and 24-hr coffee availability was nice too. Nice walking paths next to the hotel.

"Deserves the "Plus""
Larry D, 24 Octobre 2015

Stopped overnight at this well managed and maintained hotel en route to a holiday in Mendocino. The room was comfortable, clean, quiet, and well appointed. The desk staff members were cordial and helpful. The adjacent Wild Fox restaurant was a delightful surprise, with innovative dishes and generous portions. Reservations are recommended. Even at mid-week the restaurant filled up at dinner.

"Short & Sweet"
Jim C, 22 Octobre 2015

General very nice. Our room was away from highway 101 so was quiet. Rooms facing front get freeway noise. I had surgery happy at 0800 so did not get included breakfast or morning swim. Overall design fits environment well. Ice cream sundae on coupon was short on chocolate; an unpardonable mistake.

"Great Staff"
jim h, 19 Octobre 2015

The hotel is a bit pricey, but the room was nice and the grounds were in great shape. A well maintained property. The Staff was very accomadating and pleasant. They know customer service. I would recommend this property.

"Wonderful Hotel in an area of Average Hotels"
la90036, 13 Octobre 2015

The hotel and staff are wonderful, clean, well appointed rooms. Its great for work, 1/2 way between SF and wine country. The onsite restaurant is wonderful and very convenient. You wont be disappointed with Best Western Novato!

"We had a blast"
Louise C, 13 Octobre 2015

Me and my boys one night of luxury with a great staff and full of Ping Pong. The place was beautiful and wee kept. The staff was overly gracious. We came here on a whim and they made it magical. We felt like we would want to come back again and again

"Convenient and caring"
Linda M, 08 Octobre 2015

This motel is situated just off Hwy. 101 with easy on and off ramps. It is convenient to San Rafael, where I attended a high school reunion. The staff were extremely helpful on check-in, as I had managed to forget my ID and credit cards. They suggested a solution which allowed me to stay, because otherwise I would have driven back home and scrubbed the reunion! A big "thank you" to the staff and management.

"Nice surprise!"
karenmcsweeney, 06 Octobre 2015

We were so happy to find this hotel in the suburbs of S.F. It was getting late and we were on our way to Sonoma (wine country) the next day. We called and got a very friendly welcome! Fortunately there were rooms available at a good rate and breakfast was included. To our surprise it was a nice, newly updated hotel with lots of comfort and decorated with style like a boutique hotel. The out door area was impressive, with pretty furniture & umbrellas surrounding the pool area. There was also a hot tub, ping pong table and fire pit area and BBQ grill...felt like a mini resort. Nice surprise!

"The very Best Motel in Novota"
John D, 05 Octobre 2015

This is the very best, of the Best Western motels. Excellent in every respect. Clean, modern, quiet, easy access to freeway, caring staff, it is the whole package. The rooms are large and the decor is nice. The included breakfast is adequate and well stocked and presented. The Wildfox restaurant is very good. Make dinner reservations ahead of time because they do get busy.

"Warm welcome, excellent hotel"
Watchman58, 01 Octobre 2015

We arrived at the hotel bone-tired just before evening fell, after our flight from DC to SFO and a car trip up the West Coast before turning towards Novato. I don't recommend doing this on Labor Day, unless you like traffic jams. The exterior of the hotel looked fine, but the interior was even better. This hotel clearly deserves the "Plus" label, it is a cut above your average Best Western. We were warmly welcomed by Nadia, who hastened to give us the room we preferred and gave us a discount voucher for the nearby Fox Restaurant as well as two tickets for dessert. A few minutes later, she called our room to ask whether we liked it and if everything was in order. The devil is in the details and a touch like this surely helps to qualify this hotel as excellent. We were only passing through and stayed for just one night, and that is my only regret. We were so comfortable there, we could have stayed longer. The room was clean, we slept well, breakfast was fine, and checkout was a breeze. What more can anyone wish for?

"Wedding Party stayed here"
Richard1140, 29 Septembre 2015

the location is great- easy access to and from Hwy. 101...geographically great for Marin, San Francisco and the Sonoma wine country. The room was well appointed, clean, free wifi, Kureg coffee maker, frig, room service available and the place was quiet.Price was fair, continental breakfast included--very god. The Wild Fox restaurant is next door- they provide the room service. WE had dinner there and the food was great with a nice menu selection. Burger King is across the street, if that works better for you.

"Loved this hotel"
Julie M, 27 Septembre 2015

Very happy stay with you. Another great Best Western experience. Try to look for Best western wherever we stay, as we love the service. Tried a Hallmark the previous night, only because we couldn't find the Best Western, and their breakfast service was a shocker.
