tons of flies in our room. I booked this place because I needed a cheap place between norcal and SF and this served its purpose. When I walked in there was some lady destroying the poor guy behind the desk about rates going up $4 on a weekend or something absolutely ridiculous. Felt bad for him so I probably overlooked...

My husband and I traveled from Gold Beach, Oregon to Novato, Calif for a family reunion. I called and made reservations from the 30th of July to the 5th of August. I asked for a street level room as my husband is disabled, a smoking room with 2 beds and we have 2 small dogs. I was assured everything would... More

The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The gal at the front desk was friendly enough. Stay here because we had a wedding in Novato. One night is enough. I got the discount card so the room was reasonably priced.

Oh man, I've stayed here plenty of times, and never had this problem until this last time. First of all, I'm a value card member, and I asked for the room upgrade and when I got there, the front desk clerk said no one told him anything and just handed me the key. Then, there were about 5 men drinking... More

We enjoyed our short stay in Novato, California. The room was reasonably priced. There is in room coffee and continental breakfast. It was surprisingly very quiet for being next yp a freeway. The room was clean and we got to bring our dog.

This is not a good place to stay. internet doesn't work, the "breakfast" is a joke, the bed was harder than rocks, the tv reception and picture quality was terrible (most channels aren't watchable). They use paper for everything (seriously). Half the people at the hotel seem to be residents and people violate the no smoking signs everywhere, including in... More

Walls are paper thin, hair all over the bathroom. It looked like someone wiped their greasy finger right on one of the wash rags and there was blood on one of the towels!!! Pretty creepy really. I come to this area often, and have stayed before. I put myself through it because its one of the only affordable places in... More

We had a room reserved online and needed to have two beds. They doubled our price--charing another $60 for the second bed, $40 over their published price. The teenager working there was useless and this was our only option since we had prepaid for the one bed. Wallpaper was falling off, bathroom tile disgusting and the key didn't work. The... More

The room was clean and comfortable but it is dark and dingy. The breakfast is mediocre: milk and cereal, juice and coffee and sweet rolls. The dining area is like eating in a cave. The parking lot is narrow so when the hotel is full it can be hard to maneuver. The hotel is right off of 101 so it... More

Thank you for the positive review. While some things like the parking lot are a bit beyond our control we will do better to brighten and liven the place up. At the moment we are making decor changes starting with the first floor. More

We stayed at this motel in Novato because there was nothing else available under $200 for the weekend. I had requested a rollaway bed in advance, when we got there the man at front desk said there weren't any available, then he checks in the back and found one. When he brought it up to the room, he left it... More

Thank You for the review I am truly sorry for the rollaway, and hopefully it didn't ruin your race weekend. We have brand new rollaway mattresses and brand new friendlier clerks now. The decor in the rooms, even puzzled me when I began working there. Wall paper has no place in a bathroom, and it's not a great choice for... More
