Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Petaluma, CA discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Petaluma hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Located just two hours north of San Francisco, Petaluma is a town that's home to just over 57,000 residents, making it the second largest city in Sonoma County. The city got its start back in 1836, when a Mexican commandant ordered the construction of the Rancho Petaluma Adobe, which is a ranch built in the colonial Monterrey style. About 25 years later, settlers flocked to Petaluma when gold was discovered in the nearby Sonoma Mountains. When the gold dried up, many people stayed to farm around the Petaluma River, and the city became known as the "Egg Capital of the World" because of its poultry farms.

Today, Petaluma is more famous as a getaway for city dwellers from Oakland, San Jose, and San Francisco. The region offers famous wines, artisanal cheeses, and a plethora of late 19th century architecture that managed to survive the 1906 San Francisco earthquake. Whatever your reason for heading to the Egg Capital, make sure to find the right hotel to fit your budget, as well as a place that's close to everything you want to do.

When to Visit Petaluma, CA

Petaluma enjoys a Mediterranean-style climate that's characterized by temperatures that get neither too hot nor too cold. Perhaps the best time to visit is in the summer when temperatures reach a high of about 80 degrees and a low of 60. The mornings start off a bit chilly, so it's important to pack a light jacket or long sleeves, but during the day, shorts and a tee-shirt are more than enough. At this time of year, it's perfect to walk through the vineyards or saunter through the downtown historic district's antique stores, restaurants, and shops. However, this is a popular time for tourists from close and far, meaning you'll need to book a hotel well in advance to meet your needs.

The least popular season is the winter, as the mix of lower temperatures and incessant rainfall often limit tourism. Precipitation in the winter regularly exceeds four inches per month, making it wet, and when mixed with temperatures in the 40 degree range, weather is far from ideal. During this time, you can often score a stellar deal on a hotel as many establishments look to cut their losses by reducing rates. If you're feeling extra adventurous, you can drive a few hours east to some of the best skiing in the state.

In the fall the weather is usually comfortably cool, making it perfect for a romantic getaway. Wine season goes into full effect just after August, as harvested grapes have already been made into fine wines. This makes getting a room at a winery more difficult, so advanced booking is highly recommended. The slow season of winter tends to extend into spring in Petaluma, as the weather still isn't the greatest. However, it does lend itself to some superb prices on lodging.
