Motel 6 Petaluma
Ranked #6 of 9 Hotels in Petaluma
Reviewed 26 July 2011

Our non-smoking room had been reciently smoked in and came with ash trays. There was no kleenex, shampoo, or hairdryer and only one bar of soap. The floor looked like it wasn't vaccummed so we never walked barefooted on the carpet. I would not stay here again and would defineately never take children here. We were here for a family reunion and everyone had different issues and had to move from one room to another for the second night. If we hadden't paid up front, we would have moved to another motel. I know you get what you pay for, but at this place you get even less.

Room Tip: Good connectability to Inernet only available in some rooms.

We stayed here as it was inexpensive. The front desk staff were very helpful. Told us where Olive Garden was and how to get there. There was a pool right by our room but we didn't use it. Room was clean. Perfect for a place to rest your head.

We arrived, dropped off the cat and off to our friends house for dinner. Returned and was shocked. Feces in the toilet (my cat isn't toilet trained) beer can behind the bed, mold behind the sink faucet, non smoking room smelled of heavy old smoke and the bed spread had over a dozen burn marks. A decent sized foreign object that left us wondering.

Both my husband's eyes immediately turned red and started to hurt. His skin also had a reaction and he isn't usually prone to respond harshly to irritants.

Other clients definitely left one to wonder what they were up to. We didn't feel safe to have 2 small children or a car of personal items at this Motel 6.

They weren't going to reimburse us until I threatened to get the police to come and investigate about how many drug addicts were checked in that night. Miraculously they refunded my money after that.

Bottom line: you get what you pay for.

We stopped at this Motel 6 just to sleep the night and continue our long drive. Even for the cheaper rate, this place is NOT worth it. There was a blood stain on the comforter, a questionable hair on the remote, and the counter had names carved in it. Needless to say, we slept fully clothed with no sheets or pillowcases and left immediately in the morning.

Me and my husband read all the reviews of this place and of course we were a bit scared, but in our experience all Motel 6's are the same. We decided to go for it, since the price was good and all we needed was a shower and a bed.
We had no problems whatsoever! Like other reviewers were saying - the room was a bit smokey smelling and that is kind of odd since it was a non-smoking room. I still don't understand that issue. But overall, the room was clean and the maids did not wake us up at 7 am - let alone 9 am to say "room service!" - which is awesome!
If you are just looking for a bed to rest your head, go for it. It's not bad.
