I don't stay in very many Econolodges, but this is the best one I've seen. When I drove up it didn't look like much, but it turns out that part is still under construction. The rest of the property looks very nice. And surprisingly, the pictures that say they are “provided by management” are actually pretty accurate. The property is... More

This place is being remodeled and that didn't bother me that much, kinda messy at the front but the back where we stayed was fine....except someone visiting someone parked in our space while we were at dinner so we had to park in front of the hotel and walk back. Oh well. Not their fault. However, when I really looked... More

Nicely remodeled rooms but both times I stayed I noticed that the sheets and pillowcases were oily and had body hairs upon closer inspection. They were obviously not washed during both visits to this hotel which is pretty gross. The rooms are newly renovated and modern which is nice...they just need to start doing some laundry around here!

Just traveled back to the bay area and with the many choices of nice hotels we choose Econo Lodge at Novato again. Why take a chance on a new place when you know you will get the superb treatment you get at Econo Lodge. We have been coming here for several years and even survived the remodel. Never had any...

We stayed at this hotel when we were in the northwest recently. As we drove up to the hotel we were questioning our decision. There was construction going on and the hotel "lobby" was a very small room w/a makeshift desk (and it was hot as blazes inside). The room we stayed in however, was very nice. The must have... More

I was in the San Francisco area for a few days for work. My company was paying the tab, but I still needed to keep the cost down. When I saw the reviews on this place I didn't have high expectations. When pulling into the lot, the first thing I saw was 2 rooms being redone. Everything was gone down... More

We stayed at this hotel for about 2 weeks and really enjoyed our stay. We were able to use the kitchen - which was helpful. The kitchen didn't have much in the way of dishes, but we just went to the dollar tree and picked up a few items. The remodel done on the room was very nice and the... More

Ivestayed at this hotel numerous times and it meets my needs perfectly. Great location in northern Marin for travel in any direction, north into Sonoma county, east into Napa and Solano counties, south into greater Marin, San Francisco, or east bay. It has a good restaurant right on premises. Quite adequate accommodations, spacious, clean. Suites available with kitchen facilities. Inexpensive.

I stayed overnight because I went to the S F Symphony performance. I live in Folsom which is rather far to return when the symphony doesn't end until 10PM. Everything was great. But I almost couldn't stay as they didn't have a first floor room. Fortunately they found one. Since I made reservations, I don't know why they didn't have... More
