The accommodations at this hotel were perfect. I travel in different states racing my car and I just have to say, the parking ( my truck and race car 28' trailer) the room, the restaurant, the breakfast everything could not have been better. And special shout out to front desk employees Mercy, Kelly, and Hector. They all treated me like... More

This motel is built somewhere in 1950 to 1960 and is clean and neat with a wonderful staff. There are large grass areas in the garden area with a lovely and well kept pool. Breakfast is a small buffet and is included in your room charge. They have Wi-Fi and cable TV. I stay there quite often and always enjoy... More

I'm am just wrapping up a second stay at the Inn Marin and all I can say is that I am glad my work is footing the bill. For a hotel that charges $150 plus a night, this is a major rip off. The freeway noise is out of this world. The TV reception in all rooms is horrible. The... More

Let me begin by saying that the Inn Marin use to be our "go to" place. Loved the old-time feel and the convenience of working across the garden area to eat a wonderful meal at Rickey's. However, based on our last stay, we won't be going back. My husband and I stayed in room 110 in December 2013 for three... More

My husband and I got married here a year and half ago. The event planner was extremely friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious! The kitchen gladly made changes to the menu for dietary needs (everything was naturally gluten-free) and the chef was even willing to make an ethnic dish that we had requested. The location was great and the... More

We got a puppy and now we have to find locations that accept dogs. Inn Marin is perfect for you and your dog. The rooms have a front and back door and all are on one level so easy in and out for walks and personal business for your pup. We ordered room service from the restaurant that is on... More

We stayed one night as it was written up well in reviews. Our upgraded Garden Room did have an attempt to modernize recently but nothing was done to the actual structure so the 1950's glared through the cosmetics. A bamboo floor covered the slab but could not hide the rolling slope of the bedroom floor. Everything was very low to... More

This hotel is old and outdated.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!!
