This hotel is old and outdated. It is noisy and you can hear the other people in the rooms next to you. The walls are thin, the bathroom apt size and old. The best part was the restaurant next door Rickey's . I like comfort class and quiet. Inn at Marin did not deliver. Not for the price anyway. For... More

What a little gem! Great location! Homey rooms, near tons of restaurants. Loved the swings and green grass area for relaxing. A very peaceful place. The rooms were sweet. Really appreciated the shampoo and conditioner that was provided. Great breakfast in the morning. Friendly staff! Loved this place!

This hotel is absolutely lovely! Tucked into overhanging trees, great courtyard, beautiful setting, near restaurants & shops. Great vibe. Nice & quiet. This is a privately owned property, and the owner was there - a wonderful, sincere, kind human being. I give this hotel my highest recommendation!!

I stayed here for a night with my jazz band during our tour and had a great experience. The rooms were clean (albeit a bit small) and the free breakfast was great. For the price it doesn't get much better than this!

Comfy and clean motel-style accommodation, but with nice touches that exemplify them Marin County experience. Beautiful landscaped grounds, pool, ample rooms with California style design. Very, very comfortable and terrific value.

Thank you for your nice review. I am glad we could be a slice of your time in Marin County. We work very hard to be the cleanest hotel in Marin County using Vaska Botanical cleaning products. We are blessed to be on 5 Acres of gardens and trees with our pool in the middle of it all. Thank you... More

I travel to Novato on business twice a year. Have tried most of the local hotels. This one is by far my favorite. I have started bringing my daughter and grandson along just so they can enjoy the wonderful play space and pool. Love the local restaurant and the continental breakfasts (free) are much better than most. The rooms are... More

My wife and I stayed here last year and when we checked into our room, which felt more like a rustic cabin, we were horrified to find crumbs on the wrinkled bed, crumbs on the wood floor, and a closet that had a curtain for a door. We were all the way in the back of the hotel and were... More

Thank you for your comments from your stay April 2013. We are equally frustrated with the third party reservations systems like you used, because we are not able to refund your money in the event that you are not satisfied. We encourage guests to book their reservations with us directly to avoid situations that are in the hands of third... More

I spent eight nights, with my wife, at the Inn Marin, while visiting my son's family over Christmas. The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful. They even provided us with freezer space for frozen fish from Alaska that we were taking to friends in Texas. Room was very clean, and quiet. The hotel was within walking distance of my son's...

This was our second stay at this very pleasant hotel, and everything we liked the first time around was still in place--the lovely courtyard, with big trees and plenty of grass for kids and dogs to play on; a spacious, nicely furnished room (though, as other reviewers have noted, the bathrooms are small); a friendly staff; and "green" touches like...

This motel is a reminder of fine motor lodges of the past. The clean rooms are all on the ground level for easy access from your car. Lovely trees and lawn surround most of the rooms. There is a very good restaurant, Ricky's, on the premises. To visit the vineyards and come back to the Inn to outside dinning by... More
