I came to Novato for a business trip and made the right decision staying at Inn Marin Hotel! Every one was very nice and polite. My room was extremely comfortable, always clean and the towels and the sheets actually smelled really good. The teas and coffees were always stocked up. I asked for an extra towel, house keeping brought it... More

The Inn Marin is in a great location. Hector, who works at the front desk, was very kind and helpful. Thank you Hector! The rest of the front desk staff and housekeeping staff were very friendly also. The pool area was nice and there were hammocks nearby also. My family and I stayed for 5 nights. We were all relatively... More

I recently stayed at Inn Marin. Was greeted at the front desk and then went to my room. The housekeepers are all so nice, one particular I spoke with was Patsy. She had great customer service and handled her self very professional. The food is good, and I would stay here again.

This hotel is a very well organized hotel. The rooms are always clean, employees are very welcoming and the environment is just like home. I would recommend it to every one who comes to stay in Marin.

While traveling north on Hwy 101 I failed to make a reservation for a place to stay because after all it was the end of September. I needed fuel so I stopped at a Shell station and inquired inside if they could recommend a place to stay in Novato. They sent me around the corner to Inn Marin. I was... More

I recently stayed here on a business trip. The room was loud from freeway noise and got terrible sleep. The ac unit was loud and the bed lumpy. I also went to Rickey's. This food is overpriced and bland. The front desk seemed confused. Seems like a poorly managed motel. Your better off staying some where else for the price.

My wife and I stayed here two nights en route to Yosemite. Our room faced a sizeable space that had chairs, benches etc. We enjoyed sitting out, and we could listen to the combo that played by the swimming pool. The bed in our room was a bit on the lumpy side, and the bathroom was similar in size of... More

The staff was very helpful and cheery. The grounds were well kept up and open space to relax. But----the bathroom was the worst. Small. No place to put toiletries without them falling into the stool. Only a shower. No grab bars outside the shower or in the shower. No place to hang a used towel so it could be used... More

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
