I wanted a central location (Corte Madera) while I house hunt but needed a budget friendly hotel. Good luck right! Found this Motel off the free way near Town center, and only 20 minutes to the city. Look sketchy from outside but it was $70 a night so I parked and checked in. The room is clean, older furniture( don't... More

We went to a book signing by Michael Connelly at a bookstore very close to this motel. The room was clean and it had a nice TV set. There was no alarm clock and no extras. For the price and the convenience, it was a pretty good value.

Fairly priced for the area. But does not offer any kind of breakfast. Have some fancy coffee machine in lobby but only makes regular coffee. Went to at least get a cup in the morning and at 7:30 the lobby was still locked up so we couldn't even get that. Room extremely small but very clean.

This place should have been closed and renovated years ago. There was rust in the bath tub, a cracked bathroom mirror, bugs in the bathroom and the place was simply the worst we have ever stayed. We received excellent service from the staff.

Going to America's best value inn, I wasn't expecting a whole lot from the place to begin with. Just a clean room with some basic amenities. I was surprised to be disappointed. The first room (its in a corner) they put us in had no toilette paper holder and the internet was super slow and the flush broken. The second... More

Did not pay a whole lot and did not get a whole lot. Toilet was loud and you had to make sure to put the switch back or else it made a whole bunch of noise. Shower pressure was decent, but could be improved. Internet was not accessible, but room was clean and heater worked. It was easy access to... More

Language barriers at the front desk. Poor, slow internet, but there WAS internet at least. Clean room, well-heated for the winter season. VERY convenient to the 101 and near plenty of restaurants and stores and right on the Bay.

We had reservations at the location in Mill Valley, they screwed up so we had to stay at their other location in Corte Madera. The rooms were very small and the bathroom was even smaller. I would have thought they would have offered a small credit back to us since the reservations were their mistake, but no go. No ice... More

The room was horrible and at 10pm the toilet flooded. The lady in charge said we couldn't use the toilet the rest of the night (and we paid 110US$ for this 'room'!). We didn't accept that. She gave back our money and were sent away (at 10:30pm) without any other alternative. BEST VALUE INN NEVER AGAIN!
