This is a freshly remodeled, quiet, comfortable, hotel that offers great value. Novato is another 10 miles away from SF but offers better value for the difference in travel. We found the hotel to be very accommodating, very quiet with a rear facing room, comfortable, and very clean. Being able to see and hear wildlife in the early mornings was... More

We were in San Francisco for four short days and wanted to divide our time between the city and the beautiful area outside of the city. This location was perfect to visit Muir Woods, Stinson Beach, Point Reyes National Seashore and the Sonoma wine country before heading into San Francisco for a few days. We were able to see it...

I first have to give credit to what was positive about this hotel. It was clean, newly remodeled and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. The only downside is the beds were very uncomfortable because they sagged in the middle. I had quite a back ache the next day. Also, when our neighbors took a shower the next morning... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so sorry you were not satisfied with the comfort level of our beds. We have memory foam mattresses and most of our guest find them extremely restful. We realize bed firmnes is very personal so we do have a few rooms with traditional "Firm" mattresses available too.

My husband and I stayed at the Novato Oaks in February 2012. After our long drive we were delighted to see a family of deer grazing on the hillside outside our window. The rear facing room was very quiet. The hotel is outside of the main town, but close enough to get to shopping and dining areas. The staff at... More

We spent two nights here in December. There were four of us in the room(2 adults and 2 teenage boys) and it was comfortable, we had room to spare. We also travelled with a large bag each. The place was clean and very quiet considering it is next to a major road out of San Francisco. The trip into San... More

Stayed one night. Paper thin walls, could hear other guests loud heater as well as ours all night long, heaters sounded like a semi truck starting up. Same for the fan in the bathroom, noisy to say the least! Not conducive to a good nights sleep. The bed was a king like I had requested, but very worn out, the... More

We stayed for a couple nights (again -- our 4th or 5th stay) recently. Location is perfect for visiting relatives in the area. Although very conveniently located off the 101, the freeway traffic noise is not a problem. The front desk staff is always very friendly, polite, and helpful. The continental breakfast setup is normal fare but you can make... More
