We were in town for a family event and this hotel was chosen for us. It was really easy to find (with GPS directions, of course). It's the kind of hotel with outside doors (no inner hallways). But I think it has recently gone through a renovation. The rooms were nicely decorated. The bed was comfortable. The pillows were lacking,... More

Hotels in Marin are pricey, and I got a room with a queen bed for $80/night. I tried to book the room on their website and encountered problems, so I called the hotel directly. Plus, on their website the Manager's Special was 15% off if you called the hotel. The person who answered knew nothing about the special, wouldn't give... More

I was in the region on business and wanted to avoid the wine-country high prices and tourists. This motel was perfect for my needs and a very good value. The rooms have been recently renovated, which is the most important thing for me at these less expensive places ... that bathroom and other fixtures are clean and updated. Free wifi,... More

First, the pros: large room, kitchenette with full stove, kitchen table with four chairs, price and a fresh paint job. Now the cons. The kitchenette was "stocked" with one bowl, one plate and no cutlery; good thing I travel with supplies. There was one short black hair on the kitchen sink and one on the bath - ewww. The walls...

Labor Day weekend was booked in the area, so we read the reviews, made reservations 10-days in advance and crossed our fingers. Nice surprise! It was an old-style California facade with fresh renovations inside. The king-size bed was comfortable with good crisp linens, although the bed was weirdly high off the floor. The room included a small microwave, mini-fridge (unstocked)... More
