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

Novato has a long history dating back to 1300 when the area was home to Coast Miwok Native American villages at the base of Mount Burdell. The Mexican government granted Rancho Novato to Fernando Feliz in 1839; the rancho was named after a local Miwok leader who may have been given the name of Saint Novatus at the time of his baptism. Other land grants followed.

A railroad built in 1879 connected Novato to Sonoma County and San Rafael and formed an area that became known as New Town, at the edge of what is now Old Town Novato.

What are the best times to visit Novato, CA?

The best time to visit Novato falls between mid-June and mid-October, when high temperatures range from 76 at the beginning and end of the warm season to 81 degrees in late August. This is also the most popular time in Novato, so hotel rooms will be at their highest rates. You will get a better deal if you book your room well before you travel.

Summers are long, dry, and mostly clear, while winters are short, wet, cold, and partly cloudy. The cool season, from the end of November to early February, averages daily highs of around 60 degrees and average lows around 39 degrees. Spring is comfortable, as is late fall, but you'll want to wear a jacket.

My stay was in Corte Madera, in Marin County. It is a beautiful area to walk and bicycle. I love the beautiful green mountains and palm trees, the open blue skies and the majestic sunsets. The Larkspur Ferry to San Francisco is a must.
