Positive Reviews

Extremely quiet.

Many hotels lack proper soundproofing between rooms and floors, but North Bay Inn fully delivers on a quiet and relaxing experience, ensuring the best sleep quality for you and your fellow guests thanks to its superior wall thickness.

Nearness to San Francisco.

As you get closer to the city, the prices for lodging, food, and transportation go up exponentially. North Bay Inn allows you to take a taxi or similar drive into the city and spend the day shopping or exploring, but keeps your overall price low due to its location outside of San Francisco's bustling streets and neighborhoods.

Spacious rooms.

The rooms at North Bay Inn contain fairly large areas to walk around and relax, especially considering the respectable size of the beds and other furniture. You won't have an issue storing your luggage and other any amenities around the room, and won't feel cramped in your own quarters.

Negative Reviews

Limited breakfasts.

The continental breakfast largely consists of processed, packaged foods such as granola bars and cereal packs, which might be a touch too sweet or refined for your tastes. There are no handmade options, which might disappoint you if you're used to a heartier breakfast.

Close to the freeway.

Although it makes it handy to access the parking lot, North Bay Inn's location on the freeway approach also makes it an unfortunate victim of traffic noise at all hours of the day. Your room is fairly well soundproofed, but you may still hear horns or loud engines.

Undersized closets.

Consider leaving some of your garments at home or keeping them in a suitcase, because the closets at North Bay Inn are substantially smaller than what you might find at similar hotels.
