This was our first time ever at this adorable hotel and we couldn't have left any happier! The cost of the room was middle of the road, but it felt like a 'high end' hotel with the amenities that were thoughtfully placed. Everything from a 'Keurig' coffee maker with select coffees and teas, to the shampoo and conditioner dispensers in... More

I was trying to book a night and the person answering me was yelling at me and telling I didn't have a right to ask about rooms or prices and clicked on me twice and told em not to call back. Horrable people, can't even call to book.

Great place. Friendly service, good facilities, ample parking, clean rooms, hot spa, suitably manicured gardens, close to freeway, free creamer, back and front entrances, nice sign, extended checkout, lampshades were nice, blue pool towels, excellent cucumber mojitos!

This week I stayed at a newly renovated hotel in Novato Ca named Inn Marin. This hotel is a classic 1960 north of san francisco style . It consists of first of all a site layout which shows that the original developer of the property, who was from zurich switzerland, had a great deal more success than anticipated. He just... More

I guess we weren't expecting motel-style accommodation (we probably should have looked at the website more closely) but the room we had was clean and well-furnished. Although the hotel is located right beside the super-busy 101, the rooms are quiet because they are located at the rear of the hotel. The reception staff were not particularly warm, but nice enough... More

This facility is worn at best and needs a total makeover. With exception of two front desk staff and the housekeeping staff, the rest of the employees seemed as tired as the hotel. The attached restaurant isn't worth the time unless you're hanging out in the bar area at game time. Almost no amenities in bathroom, save the shampoo/rinse containers... More

We had to vacate our house due to some major renovations and found the Inn Marin just a few miles from our house. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom is small but functional. The staff very friendly and helpful. We loved swimming in the pool, ordering food on the pool side and hanging out in the garden... More

We wanted a nice, sunny place to stay not too far out of San Francisco and a pool was a must (so thrilled deep end goes to 8 feet deep). I'm an avid Trip Advisor researcher and all the tips came in handy when making our choice. I LOVED this Inn!! It was a busy weekend with a lot of... More

For the money the Inn Marin is not worth it. It is an older inn and not in the best of conditions for the price. For starters the room my wife and I had, we had to kill multiple spiders. The refrigerator didn't work in the room. The finishes of the room where cheap (fixtures, shower head, flooring). The bed... More

We were very impressed with friendly staff, good food and comfortable room. The pool and patio was clean and inviting. I highly recommend you check them out. Very accomodating with a lot of flexibility to our stay as well. It is difficult finding hotels with such great customer service.
